Kiki will deliver meals to you for real!

 

In July we wrote that Kiki’s Delivery Service, that is best known as the anime movie produced by Studio Ghibli, will be made into a live-action movie. This movie's release is now planned for March 2014.

As a promotional campaign, Kiki’s Delivery Service movie arranged a tie-up with Demae-kan (the first comprehensive Japanese meal delivery site) and just started accepting applicants for their fun project.

Only organizations like schools, after-school care schools and sports clubs can apply for the prize. The luckiest group will have a chance to receive meal delivery service in person by Kiki (Fuka Koshiba acting as Kiki). She can deliver meals for a maximum of 20 people.

Many of you must remember the herring and pumpkin pot pie that Kiki barely delivered to a birthday girl from the Ghibli version of the animation movie. I think a lot of people had the desire to eat that hot pie, just like I did. Now, that scene will come true for children from this lucky group and they will never forget that they received a meal delivery from a little pretty witch.

Go to Demae-kan's website to send your application! They are accepting until January 19.
