|- Ojamajo Doremi -|
Season 1 Episode 01 - I'm Doremi! I'm a Witch Apprentice
Wow this older animation style is so much more fast paced and silly... reminds me of Kodocha.
Doremi thinks she's the unhappiest pretty girl in the world, because her family is always fighting, and she can't confess to Igarashi-kun... Then on the way home she runs into...
Makihatayama... Marika's house of magicIt's a magic shop.
... m..m.. Majo!She turns Majo Rika into a magic frog.
I'm not letting you leave until I turn you into a witch!Doremi's first transformation attempt failed... she has to put the clothes on before the music stops.
Your magic is only temporary, you require magic spheres... if you heal someone with magic, you'll get the wound.
The nurse, Yuki-sensei, heals Doremi after she gets hit by a soccer ball while foolishly parading her magic around.
Season 1 Episode 02 - I, Become Hazuki-chan!
Doremi is still very bad at magic and flying... the nurse suggests she help with Hazuki's problems. Hazuki says if she could use magic she'd switch places with Doremi.. so that's what they do. This ep is pretty hilarious.
Season 1 Episode 03 - The Transfer Student from Naniwa! Aiko Debuts
Senoo Aiko transfers into Doremi's school.. she's very outspoken and rude to Doremi and Hazuki, so they hate her at first.. but then Doremi stalks her using magic and then Aiko invites her inside for takoyaki. She uses magic to split Aiko's dad into 2 so that one of them could show up to the school's meet the parents day. It turns out that wasn't needed... the clone couldn't find the right class, and the real dad took a break from work to show up.
Season 1 Episode 04 - It's Not Scary If We're All Witches
At this point, both Hazuki and Aiko have seen a bit too much of Doremi's magic, and are about to call her a witch... so Doremi starts freaking out and yelling at them while dragging them both to the magic shop. She tells them to wait outside the shop and not say anything so that she can ask Majo Rika what to do.
The 2 of them don't listen, and enter the shop anyway.. Hazuki calls Doremi a witch..
Wait.. nothing happens? Because she's only a witch apprentice, the magic frog curse doesn't apply to her yet? Hmm... maybe it only applies after you've passed at least one of the witch exams... er, Hazuki is about to say it again, and Majo Rika stops her because it would really turn her into a frog this time... maybe the first time, it wasn't clear that Hazuki was referring to Doremi, she could've been referring to Rika.
Rika decides to make the two of them apprentices... Doremi is teaching them how to transform, by putting your witch clothes on before the music ends. They call her senpai... Rika continues calling her ojamajo. Hazuki has an even harder time transforming than Doremi, because of her glasses.
They both have a different poron than Doremi, and all have different tongue-twister names that they have to say every time they cast a spell.
Rika tells them about forbidden magic... If you revive someone from the dead with magic, the caster will die. If you heal someone with magic, the caster will get hurt... Rika wants them to hurry and take the level 9 exam. If they pass, they get their own fairies like Lala.
Also magic spheres cost money... but the only money that works in the witch world is money that was made from selling magic items. The doremis agree that the shop is out of fashion. While Majo Rika is in the witch world shopping for more spheres, they remodel the House of Magic and rename it "Mahou Dou". Rika is mad and wants her old gloomy witch shop back, but Lala agrees with the girls that the new design is better.
Season 1 Episode 05 - Grand Opening! House Of Magic
DelaDela, the singing witch shows up in Mahou Dou for the first time, to sell the Doremis/Rika a new cash register... also Kotake shows up, says they're not allowed to be working part time while in grade school, and says he doesn't believe in that magic stuff. Doremi is sad that none of the clay magic items she made got sold... then Kotake hears about how Doremi made this ugly looking thing he decides to buy it to show off how ugly it is.
Rika says that Kotake found this place for a reason... unlike the other customers who the girls convinced to come in.. people who have problems or great desires will find this place. Kotake found it the same way Doremi did...
It's unfortunate that he chose an ineffective apprentice's magic item.Suddenly Doremi wants to know what was bothering Kotake enough to make him come here... so she stalks him and tries to ask, but he doesn't say anything... so instead she follows him in secret, then uses magic to help him when he falls in a pit to save a puppy..
Doremi has some trouble, but she finally is able to use her magic to help someone in need successfully. It seems like she's only making things worse... but then she helps him out incidentally anyway. Kotake gets out, then solves his problem on his own, and gains the courage to ask his parents to let him keep a pet.
