All about the director

Kiki's Delivery Service (魔女の宅急便 Majo no Takkyūbin?) tells the story of Kiki, a 13-year old witch. When a witch turns 13, it is traditional for her to move away from home to spend a year in another city or town where there is no witch already living, so that she can learn to be independent and practice her trade.

This is Kiki's story of the beginning of her year away from home. She and her black cat Jiji run into a little trouble at first, but they soon make friends in their new city by the sea.
