"Great kids film"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Kiki is a young witch in training, she leaves home to find her own town to settle in for a year. This story is about growing up, adjusting, adapting and finding confidence in yourself.

Adult Miyazaki fans, this film is more “disney” than “anime”. This film is nice, evenly paced, and perfect for young girls between ages 5 and 10. It is quite beautiful, and there is a love story, so if you like Miyazaki films then you need to watch this simply so you can enjoy another world where dreams seem to slip into reality. 5 Stars because its completely in touch with its target audience.

"Another wonderful Studio Ghibli amine film."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Kiki is a really delightful little apprentice witch.

Sweet love story and wonderful art work.

Her little cat is so cute. also a cute little romance with her cat and the fancy persian cat next door and cute kittens resulting. I will watch it again and again and share it with children.

The story revolves around a 13 year old witch called Kiki who has to leave home & live by herself for a year amongst humans. The story is very sweet & I would recommend it for kids.

Kiki's Delivery Service Reviews

“Like all of Hayao Miyazaki's films, Kiki's Delivery Service illustrates how misleading (and ignorant) it is to lump all anime together as abrasive kiddie fare or shameless sensationalism. Kiki's Delivery Service is a wonderful story that captivates and inspires. With the qualification that it probably won't sit well with those who object to Harry Potter or Bewitched, I recommend this wholeheartedly to families looking for alternative entertainment to the loud, lumbering cartoons on American television. Kids will surely love this film, and it's just as likely to touch the hearts of adult viewers too.” At a Glance Film Reviews

“Delightful music, compelling characters, heartfelt emotion, and a realistic plot make for an outstanding animated experience. Kiki's Delivery Service is an exemplary anime movie with a superb DVD treatment. I have given this title very high marks in all categories, even though I don't consider it Miyazaki's best work. That should indicate the respect due to any title by Studio Ghibli. If they've produced a dud, I have yet to see it.” DVD Verdict

“This movie is breathtakingly beautiful. It's messages about responsibility, self-reliance and tolerance are made all the more powerful by their quiet, subtle delivery…This is a drama–a delightful coming-of-age story that is presented with such reverence that it puts other children's movies to shame. It is proof that a movie doesn't have bash children over the head with its messages, or dazzle them into learning its lessons…I'm giving the movie an ‘A,’ without the ‘+,’ simply because it won't appeal to everybody. Toddlers and pre-schoolers may not be able to sit still through a movie with such a quiet, languid pace. And pre-teen boys may not like it because it is, after all, a story about (eww!) a girl. Parents, however, will love Kiki's Delivery Service. I cried during this movie. It wasn't during a manipulative Simba's-dad-just-died type of moment, but rather during a moment of absolute stillness.” AboutFilm.com
