The story starts roughly same way as the book During a fantasy equivalent version of UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, a young girl by the name of Sophie works as a hatter and deals with massive insecurity problems. After an encounter with the wizard Howl, she attracts the attention of the petty Witch of the Waste, who lays a curse on Sophie, [[OvernightAgeUp abruptly making her physically 90 years old]]. Though rather accepting of her new age, which Sophie finds to fit her personality better, she still sets out to find Howl and break the spell. An [[AnimateInanimateObject animate scarecrow]] she calls "Turnip Head" leads her to Howl's eponymous castle, where she makes a deal with fire demon/Ifrit Calcifer to break each other's curses under the guise of becoming Howl's cleaning lady. She also meets Howl's apprentice, a young boy named Markl. Meanwhile, Howl is playing the role of a rogue wizard, doing his best to try and halt both sides of the raging war in the background, but the transformations that he uses in order to fight (into an enormous birdlike figure) are bringing him closer and closer to losing his humanity.

* BodyHorror: Wizards who fight in the war end up remaining as bat-like ''things'', forgetting who they really are. Even Howl is undergoing a painful transformation into a nightmarish parody of a monstrous raven.

* MeaningfulBackgroundEvent[=/=]FreezeFrameBonus: When Sophie and Howl are escaping the capitol on the airplane, a group of soldiers are seen in the street below shooting at what look like protesters. This is never mentioned again, so it's possible it was just background filler. Or it could be the reason why, at the end, Suliman asks for the Prime Minister and the Minister of Defense [[LaResistance rather than the King]].

* ZorroMark: The Witch of the Waste sends Howl a "scorching love note" via Sophie, which falls on the breakfast table when Howl touches it and burns a scorch mark on the table. However, the permanent marking is averted when Howl proceeds to declare the mark "can't be good for the table" and wiped it away with his bare hand.
