When I first watched Kiki’s Delivery Service (魔女の宅急便), I remember relating a lot to Kiki’s character. She was very optimistic and excited about trying out new things; very determined. But her ability to perform her special gift suffered as a result of self-doubt. I loved how she took a break from flying to hang out with her artist friend/older sister figure. She learned a lot about herself during that time, and later on was able to rediscover her gift when it was most needed. I know it sounds strange, but sometimes when I experience anxiety, self-doubt, or lack of motivation I try to think about this movie. It helps me look at the bigger picture.
Anyways, today I bring you a collaboration video that I did with my friend lonlonjp. He is a talented classical guitarist who posts video game music covers on youtube, and he is providing the lovely guitar you hear in this video. And since Metroid always manages to walk into my videos (and since he is a black cat), he gave me the idea to do a bit of cosplay. He makes a pretty good Jiji, don’t you think? Hope you enjoy!
