childhood movie


魔女の宅急便
in English it's translated as KiKi's Delivery Service


i was probably 6 or 7 when i first time i saw this film
and it became my favorite ever since

not only the main character has the same name as me 'kiki'
she can fly too!!

when i was 6 or 7
it was just a film filled with fantasy

when i watched in at 25
it's still a film filled with lovely fantasy
but the understanding of it is so different
i never thought this film could make me teary
but i just couldn't hold my tears...

the way KiKi said goodbye to her parents
started a new life in a new city
met new people
surrounded with kindness
but also challenged in many ways


lauhging cyring
learning and growing

it's like seeing myself
leaving canada behind
coming to Japan
meeting amazing people
but also facing different kinds of challenges

i love this movie so much!!
キキになりたい
純粋な心を持ち
いつか 人のために飛びたい

I liked this movie too! Basically, I love all movies by Ghibli! When I was 7, I watched となりのトトロ over and over again everyday for weeks. Even now I still don't understand why I was obsessed with that movie, it's not even my favourite. Well, I guess I wanted to have the big totoro as a friend and small totoro as a pet....hahaha

Btw, are you still coming to visit?
