In "Junkers Come Here" and in "Tokyo Godfathers" the most important thing is family; both movies' characters must bring the family back together. At first everyone thinks only about themselves and their own welfare but in the end they'll understand what's so important about family. In other words, they will find their family anew. It may seem that in "Junkers Come Here" everything is done by magical Junkers' powers, or that in "Tokyo Godfathers" all events are keyed by unnatural coincidences, but it's the characters that ultimately grow and make miracles happen.

Both movies are about contemprorary issue of not showing one's feelings. Atmosphere is very similar and these productions leave us with some reflections in our head.

Although Whisper of the Heart and Junkers Come Here have two entirely different plots, they both have a very similar slice-of-life type feel. In addition, both have vast amounts of character development related to a young girl who is desperately trying to find yourself. A melancholy and touching tale that will surely warm your heart.

Ah, love at early age - it always seems so perfect. Both girls in these two anime share the same feelings and in the end both understand what is really important.

Both of these films are lively, funny and have a meaningful ending. They are in common because in both movies a main girl character meets or already knows a magical animal that makes her life different. And all problems are solved at the end, but not because of a miracle powers; rather, the main characters become better, and understand an important thing.

Kiki is a young witch who has just turned thirteen, and as tradition dictates she must now leave the safety of her home for a year to undergo witch training.

With nowhere to stay and no outstanding magical skills besides flying, Kiki begins to wonder if she's come to the right place; but after returning a pacifier to a customer of a local shop, its owner, Osono, offers her a place to stay. Kiki soon decides that she'll start her own delivery service, and with the help of newfound friends she sets forth on a journey to discover who she is and how to make it on her own.

The thing that connects these two anime is Junkers' similarity to Kiki's cat. They both can talk, they both tell jokes, they both helps their masters and at the end they both lose something...

Both Totoro and Junkers Come Here are filled with warmth. They can represent what you call "childhood": magic things, animals talking, and familly problems which are solved at the end. All of it can be seen through the magical eyes of a child.
