* Normally, you wouldn't bet on a kid like this as a protagonist. She's clumsy as hell, a little slow on the uptake and is not exactly fearless. If you give her half a chance, you'll see she can do ''anything''. A couple of days working on the bathouse and she's practically the one calling the shots! The employees who loathed her at first are completely on her side by the end of the movie, she gains all of her friends through charisma and good will, she saves and frees Haku and faces the unknown for love. When Yubaba dismisses her after acing her final trial, Chihiro politely bows to her former boss while Yubaba huffs. Look at Chihiro's face of determination as she rides the train: ''this'' is our esteemed protagonist.


* Chihiro just had her parents turned into pigs, ran down a dizzying flight of stairs while screaming due to her fear of heights, and was escorted to the top of the bathhouse realizing just how completely out of her depth and element she is, only to confront Yubaba and having to ask for a job. Which she does. Repeatedly and ever louder as the noise makes Boh throw a tantrum correctly deciding that Yubaba will agree just to shut her up. Keep in mind Yubaba zipped her lips shut with a spell after asking for the first time, badmouthed her parents, mused about turning Chihiro into either a piglet or a lump of coal, then got literally up in her face and, sharp nails around Chihiro's neck, said she might just have her do the hardest most menial jobs to her dying breath since she is so insistent on working. And it's not like Chihiro is immune to all this either, she's visibly trembling and gulping but she still holds on and doesn't give up Haku, Kamaji, or Lin either when Yubaba asks who it was that helped her get this far so she could "reward" them.

** It also shows how, despite her horrible attitude, Yubaba is still a ReasonableAuthorityFigure; when Sen says the stink spirit has a thorn embeded, she immediately calls for the other workers to help the girl get the "thorn" out. And together they remove a HUGE ammount of trash!

Added DiffLines:

* If you watch the sub, Haku pretty much traded his ''life'' for Chihiro's freedom. If Chihiro hadn't worked out his name, Yubaba would have ''torn him to pieces''. That amount of love is pretty amazing.

* Yubaba snapping at Haku that Chihiro ''must'' take a test to get her parents back. Haku is ready to RulesLawyer her, but Chihiro confidently says she'll take the rest. Yubaba smiles and tells her she has guts.

** To explain, in the beginning, Chihiro is whining that her family's moving -- she has to leave her old neighborhood and all her friends. At the end her dad concedes that moving might be a little intimidating and that it's okay to be a little scared. In between, Chihiro's taken on some of the most frightening creatures in the Spirit World; the normal world no longer seems so daunting.
