GC13 and Sophia discuss the best episode of Steven Universe named after a Studio Ghibli film: Kiki’s Pizza Delivery Service.
How many pizzas can you carry with one arm? Can you beat Kiki’s displayed strength, all while running fast enough to deliver warm pizzas to the hungry citizens of Beach City? (If so, Mayor Dewey is probably hiring interns.) Jenny may have broken the delivery car, but apparently Kiki doesn’t need it.
Stand up for yourself: it’s not being mean to not let others take advantage of you. Being nice and helpful is one thing, but you won’t always have Steven around to help you fight your inner cheese demons.
Jenny and Kiki do have the same voice actress. Her name is Reagan Gomez and she’s an actress.
Kiki’s bit about “You ain’t lion, are you?” and “Steven was lion. Sorry for using the same pun twice.” was from the first Lion episode, which is what, episode 10? So this is a callback joke stretching over 70 episodes. Delicious!
