This is something that slips past the Western viewers- it looks like it’s reaching out for Chihiro, in a malicious way, to the Western viewers. It’s what I thought growing up.
However, now, that I know that it’s a way of signalling for someone to ‘Come here!’ in Japan, the scene takes on a whole new meaning.
That spirit knows that if Chihiro doesn’t eat the food, she will disappear. And it knows if it offers the food, she cannot be cursed as a gluttonous pig because it wouldn’t have been stolen.
Just a unique take when you have all of the context.

Today marks the day of me turning 20 . 1/5 of a century lol . Goodness xD . Well I didn’t celebrate my birthday today (x instead Lina had a lunch thing on a cruise that I went to haha . I thought it was pretty cool (: I had to be at her house at 9 am though to do her hair -.- jeeeez . I met her boyfriend whom I really approve lol . He keeps her from being spoiled xD . I had a heart to heart talk with Jenny and then took ‘usies’ cause Lina wouldn’t let us take silly pictures on the actual camera -.- . Then we went to the movies to watch the purge ! 20 freaking years old and I still get carded -.- and no one else did ! Asdfghjkl .
Anyways , even though I didn’t celebrate my birthday , I got wonderful posts/texts from my friends (: and even though it’s such a small gesture , it honestly means the world to me (: like my stomach and heart gets this giddy feeling xD .
Brian sent me a dango picture and it was basically the exact one that he made for me a few birthdays ago . Tony was a great one because I got to practice my Chinese even though it’s so basic xD . tt’s minions picture was just so much yes ! Ugggh ! Cato’s heartfelt post honestly touched me . He’s the best friend I know I’ll keep for a long time . Besties only up there cause she thinks emoji is life -.- lol I can’t even with her xD . Alex is always so reassuring whenever I’m feeling meh haha (x he’s honestly just the sweetest . And last but not least , his text/post . It was the sweetest thing ever haha . Looking back on it , we really have been through ups and downs , but somehow we always make it through . He’s fully aware he’s not the best boyfriend , but he honestly tries his best to make me happy , and that’s enough for me (:
I don’t like celebrating my birthday , but I’m still thankful for all the friends I have (: good night tumblr .
