Introduction

Created by animation legend Hayao Miyazaki, Kiki's Delivery Service is a feature-length anime film from 1989 that centers around a young witch, on the cusp of womanhood, as she sets out to make a name for herself. While this description of the film might make it seem like an over the top fantasy film, the more benign aspects of Kiki's world take a backseat to more sensitive and relatable topics; growing up, carving out your own path, courage, and integrity are just a few of the topics that are explored throughout the film's 103 minute run time. Well regarded by fans of great animation and storytelling, Kiki's Delivery Service is a must-see for fans of Japanese animation.

For worse or ill, films like Kiki's Delivery Service are why that comparison is still made to this very day. 

Another reason to name your dog after a character from Kiki's Delivery Service is the film's subject matter; despite starring a heroine who can levitate high in the sky on a broom, the film is very grounded and primarily centers on the challenges humans face as adolescents trying to transition into full fledged adults.
