  1. Kiki’s delivery service is by far my favourite. I think it’s because it’s the one I identify with most. But I think Howl’s Moving Castle would be my second 🙂

    • I did like kiki too, but i always get drawn to the more fantasy elements in animated which 4 of my 5 have and the grave most heartbreaking animated every made
