      OK I understand that for the stuff that is for adults, but Kiki's
      delivery service was clearly marketed at kids, at least in the US and
      has a gentle, juvenile theme throughout. It seems like the
      sexualization of schoolgirls seeps over from the adult oriented anime
      or something.
