@Northstar I like how the locations can feel hum-drum but it takes a curious and open character (a childlike perspective seems right) to sense the hidden magic.
Such as following the path of a cat to see what it is up to, and finding yourself in a strange new place Also the scene with the library cards - noticing that someone else has borrowed the exact same books as you. Mystery is introduced where someone else would call it coincidence. That is what is special about the Ghibli movies, enough to make up for some loose ends

Yeah I can see that, though I don't really pay attention to that part much. I like the realism of the locations and behaviors of people in them as well as the 'wholesome' vibe of them. It's a refreshing taste sometimes when all the characters are "what you see is what you get", as in simple, healthy and good deep down.

What you see is only a part of anything. What you think is only a simplification.
