Apperence and personality.Edit

Chihiro Ogino is a 10 year old girl who has brown hair and brown eyes. She wears a green and white shirt and pink shorts and when she is employed in the bath house for most of the film she wears a red work clothes. Initially shown to be petulant, egoistic, childish and easily frightened, Chihiro grows into a capable individual and is a core factor to the movement of "Spirited Away"'s plot. During her adventure in the Spirit World, she matures from a whiny, self-centered, and pessimistic child to a hard-working, responsible, optimistic young girl who has learned to care for others. To protect her friends and rescue her parents from a spell that has turned them into livestock, Chihiro sheds her former personality and adapts to her environment to become a courageous, quick-witted and reliable girl.

The strength of her bond with Haku as the story progressed eventually evolved into a very sincere form of love that dispelled Yubaba's and Zeniba's curses on the river spirit.
