I always loved the way food is depicted in Spirited Away. When I first watched the movie, I thought they would go all out with the gluttony aspect of food, and they do sometimes. No Face orders tons of food for himself and Chihiro’s parents gorge themselves on food, but there is also a comforting aspect explored, like when Chihiro eats a bun to wash away a bad taste or in this scene where Haku gives her onigiri. There’s even a bit where Chihiro feeds the soot sprites. Food isn’t bad. It’s just corrupting in large quantities. I like how there is this sort of vague morality to everything in Spirited Away that really brings the world to life.
