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.
And also, the red lanterns spell out ‘おいで’ which translates to “Come here” or “Come in” :)

Holy shit.

My hair game went seriously downhill during the gig, but I met William Control so aye!

Seeing William Control tonight. Glad to see he’s just as excited to see me!

Fletchling, the “tiny robin,” is the only regional bird to have its type changed upon evolution. Fletchinder, the “ember” Pokemon, is the only Pokemon with more than ten characters in its name. Talonflame, the “scorching” Pokemon, resembles a falcon and has the highest base SPD of all Fire-types.

Anyone who can justify selling a vest with text print for 19,000 yen will blow my mind. What ridiculous pricing.
