|Season 4 Episode 40 - Doremi and the Witch Stop Being Witches|
This is a really cute episode with some amazing character development/growth for Doremi...
I met someone mysterious today.<spoiler /><spoiler>
I wonder if one day... I will understand what she said to me.
Doremi spends some time walking around on her own because all her friends are busy.. she meets this mysterious woman who turns out to be a witch who gave up being a witch.. she makes glassware.. they hang out together and she gives Doremi a magic-looking glass ball.
When Doremi visits her a 2nd time, she finds Mirai-san's collection of photos of people she became friends with all over the world... she hints at Doremi that becoming a witch means you'll eventually have to leave leave people behind and travel and make new friends.
Later, Doremi visits Mirai a 3rd time when everyone else is still too busy to come along... she starts talking about how she's the only one of her friends that doesn't know what she wants to do in the future. She used to play piano but doesn't like that anymore... she always wanted to run a steakhouse but isn't sure if she can actually make steak... Doremi apologizes for talking about boring stuff like that... but Mirai doesn't mind, and then starts making some mysterious noise by rubbing the top of her wine glass.
How was that. Did you hear it?Doremi heard it, but isn't sure if she understood what it meant.
Doremi finally manages to make a piece of glass that she liked.. Mirai said to pick it up tomorrow, when she'll be moving away to Venice. She's going back to study with the 90 year old who she taught glass blowing to. She has to pretend to be the daughter or granddaughter of the woman he knew back then, and tells Doremi this is one of the things she'll have to consider as a witch.
You're a witch apprentice, a human still. What you know about the Witch World is like a reflection in a piece of glass.
She then asks Doremi if she wants to come with her to live in Venice. Doremi realizes she's being serious... for the next day she's just in a daze, staring at that glass ball... after school she has to decide whether to go right to the woman's glassblowing house, or left to Mahou Dou. She takes too long to decide, and runs to Mirai's house, but she's no longer there... just the glass that Doremi made is there along with a photo of the 2 of them together, and a note saying "Let's meet again someday."
I just realized this witch's name literally means "future"
Season 4 Episode 41 - Pop Becomes a Witch Early On!?
Another Pop episode. Pop is taking her level 1 witch exam, and if she passes she'll become a witch before Doremi... Pop realizes she doesn't know what she wants to do after becoming a witch, and she's only been copying her sister up until now.. Doremi says she doesn't know either, and admits that she doesn't know what she'd want that can't be done without magic.. but at least her magic has helped many other people.
To pass the exam, Pop needs to use magic to do something nice, and be thanked for it somehow. Pop sees Erika and helps her protect the drawing that their class did from the rain.
It's thanks to the wind that we could protect it. The wind moved the sheet and covered the mural. Thanks, wind-san!She passed the exam, and is relieved to find out there's still one more thing she has to do before she'll officially become a witch.
