Kiki's Delivery Service (魔女の宅急便)

Picture credit
Kiki just turned 13, and it was customary that when a witch is at that age it was time for her to leave home and find a city where she can practice her trade and learn to be independent for a year.

Kiki was really excited about this, and started out with much enthusiasm, finding a location was easy enough, but as her only skill was flying the broom, she thought of a delivery service to support herself.  Everything was going well, until she met a boy and delivered a gift to a girl who didn't appreciate the hard work her grandmother has put into. Meeting a few kids didn't help either it only made her realize that she was different, she became unsure of herself and lost her powers. Will she be able to find it again?

Release by Studio Ghibli on 1989
Author: Hayao Miyazaki
Won a Animage Anime Grand Prix prize on the same year.
