''The Borrower Arietty'' is a 2010 StudioGhibli film directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi and written by Creator/HayaoMiyazaki, in what marks the former's directorial debut. It's based on Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale "Thumbelina" and Mary Norton's book series ''Literature/TheBorrowers.''

Arietty is a young member of a race known as the Borrowers. As one might suspect from that name, they make their living stealing items (borrowing, in their parlance) from the giant "human beans." Their primary rule is to avoid ever being seen by these [[HumansAreCthulhu terrifying creatures]]. However, Arietty meets a human boy who seems to be gentle and kind. Nonetheless, she is forbidden from seeing him.

** The crow attack, executed with the sort of intelligence that corvids actually possess. The crow spots Arrietty, caws, and looks away, so Arietty turns away as well, to talk to Sho. Several ''minutes'' later, the "harmless" crow suddenly attacks ''from her blind side''. Only the cawing of another crow gives the attack away at the last second.

* ShoutOut: Spiller's costume and facial markings are very reminiscent of San's wardrobe and make-up from ''PrincessMononoke'', and his bow has the same coloration as Ashitaka's did in the same movie.
** In the photo of Sho's mother and aunt as children, they look similar to Satsuki and Mei from MyNeighborTotoro. In addition, their mother resembles the mother of Satsuki and Mei.
** The title character is a young woman in her early teens belonging to a mythical race. She wears a mono-colored one-piece dress, has dark(-ish) colored hair, has a bow-like hair ornament, and she befriends a cat. [[KikisDeliveryService Sound familiar?]]
