The Spirit theme returns one last time at the end of the film. Chihiro takes Yubaba s final test to return home from the Spirit world, and she answers the trick question correctly. When Chihiro finalizes her answer, Yubaba s contract that kept Chihiro in the Spirit world vanishes and section C of the Spirit theme is reprised for the last time. This is the final stage of evolution in the Spirit theme: ultimate approval and acceptance in the Spirit world. All the bathhouse employees and the spirits cheer for Chihiro as she runs away with Haku. This segues into the final Adventure theme, which leaves the audience heart warmed. The scene where Chihiro rides the train from the bathhouse to Zeniba s house may be the most interesting scene in the film. While the film up to this point has shown Chihiro rushing from event A to event B and so on, this scene is a three minute train ride with no dialogue just music. The piece on the OST named The Sixth Station is heavily piano based with strings creating an atmospheric pad underneath the piano melody. This will be referred to as the Train theme.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
