Kiki's Delivery Service

Kiki's Delivery Service ★★★★

“Take long walks. Look at the scenery. Doze off at noon. Don’t even think about flying. And then, pretty soon, you’ll be flying again.”

Even the tiniest step outside the comfort zone feels like drodging down a minefield, especially when one stumbles into the phenomenon we know as adulthood. This spooky season just got real. No ghouls, or monsters heaving beneath the bedframe, no claws scratching at windowpanes or howls of werevolves echoing through the night. Just your ordinary bundle of responbilities falling upon you like pebbles rolling down the mountain edges.

Except there is a magical twist to this coming of age tale, with Kiki the witch stepping in to taste not only the baked goods but the whimsical rollercoaster that is life. They say you're bound to find your place under the sun, with the winds building up and straying you off your course a little. Trapping even the most determined of travelers within their grasp, until the feeling of not belonging kicks in again. This surge of weird and morose, mixed together to form a word so vicious at first glance: outsider. Though life has its sneaky little ways of bending and breaking until things fit in just right. Even for a small while. I say follow along with what the heart wants, with maybe a tiny companion like Jiji to help you on the way.
