They work and live there for a while and eventually face the dilemma of returning to the normal human world. Someone close to them gives them a small band to wear in order to make sure they remember who they are. That doesn't sound anything like ''Anime/SpiritedAway,'' nope not at all. There are differences between the movies but you have to admit, they are similar.
