It was a worldwide success, being critically acclaimed and winning an academy award for best animated film in 2003. It is among the eight Studio Ghibli films to be world widely successful with Spirited Away being the highest grossing of them.

While the film is downright stunning, the environments from the bathhouse to the train stops across the river, the second act to the story feels rushed, like there was too much build up in the first half that the later part of the story couldn't provide what the film needed so it fell a little. However all of the characters in the film were enjoyable, seeing Chihiro's growth in both her maturity and her confidence was nice to witness as well has her impact on the people she's around leads to Spirited Away being an interesting character piece.
