"Kiki's Delivery Service takes pride of place in Miyazaki's exceptional body of work."- Andrew Osmond, EMPIRE MAGAZINE
"One of Miyazaki's most personable protagonists, a delightful cast of supporting characters, and a rambling, episodic story full of charming incident and irresistible imagery."- Steven D. Greydanus, DECENT FILMS
"As a story about how hard it is to make your own way in the world, Kiki’s Delivery Service is truthful and scalpel-sharp. That it manages all this while remaining consistently funny, optimistic and exciting – even for little ones – is a mark of Miyazaki’s genius."- Tom Huddleston, TIME OUT LONDON
