Kiki's Delivery Service

Kiki's Delivery Service ★★★★½

It never occurred to me how much the plot of Spider-Man 2 mirrors this:

-hero strikes out on their own, falling into a delivery job that utilizes their powers, while still struggling with money/making deliveries
-hero struggles with their friendships/relationships, in part due to their powers
-issues in their personal life cause a lack of confidence in powers, which are ultimately lost
-a threat to a loved one/city forces the hero to muster their courage and re-discover their powers to rescue the loved one

If only Peter Parker had gone to Weschester to live with an artist in an effort to kickstart his powers.
