Wednesday Anime - Kiki's Delivery Service

Kiki's a young 13-year old witch in a small town who left home as a witch-in-training. She needs to complete this training for a year and has found the town of Koriko her next abode. Her stay in Osono found her establishing a delivery service. She met a young boy named Tombo who showed her around the city on his bike. She met a lot of characters along the way which I think helped build the story of a "non-antagonist" theme. The story's central gist is personal growth and self-realization.

I find this story very intesting and with values to tell. Kirsten Dunst voiced Kiki in the English version and Phil Hartman as Kiki's cute, little black cat named Jiji.
