About Kiki from Kiki’s Delivery Service
Kiki is resolved enough to leave her home as a mere 13-year-old just to undergo the witch training. She is also stubborn and proud, which leads to her own disadvantage on occasion.
The young witch is very attached to Jiji, whom she introduces as her best friend. This was solidified by the fact that she wasn’t super popular when she first arrived in Koriko.
All in good time, she forges new friendships with her customers and even becomes the town heroine by the end of the movie. Life is, after all, coexisting with others…
