I revisited these lovely illustrations recently, which Popman3580 first posted around the time that Mary and the Witch’s Flower, now a kind of forgotten movie, came out—and it certainly makes sense with that film’s similarity to Ghibli fare and the director’s relationship with the studio. Thus, a virtually automatic comparison to Kiki should be drawn (literally!).
On a funny note, I posted these on my personal Tumblr and that site, which was notoriously taking down anything pornography-related at the time (and again now), marked this as pr0n (I think because they saw bloomers and decided, “Oh, kids in underwear!”). It took me a year to get it reinstated, after which time the proliferation of likes that it had been rightly receiving had all but stopped. Oh, Tumblr…
