At the beginning of the film, a shadow of a nostalgic figure is shown.
In the beginning of the film, a shadow of a nostalgic figure is shown, and Doremi and the others ask the girls in their original form and in their original voices.
What do you all want to be when you grow up? What do you want to be when you grow up?
The protagonist of this work is not Doremi from “Oja Majo Doremi”.

The title is not “Oja Witch Doremi.
As a fan of “Oja Majo Doremi,” I was wondering if I could see the continuation of their story.
“Oja Majo Doremi” fans may have expected to be able to see the continuation of their story after 20 years. In fact, after the anime, the story of Doremi was released.
In fact, after the anime, a novel was published in which Doremi and her friends became “high school students.
After the anime, a novel work was released in which Doremi and her friends became “high school students”, and many people must have hoped to see that in a film.

This is why those who were expecting that will be disappointed.
However, although Doremi and her friends are not the main characters in this work, they are in a sense the “me” of that time.
But in a sense, it is a story in which the “me” of those days is the protagonist.

20 years later

Twenty years ago, we were kids.
We were kids 20 years ago, watching “Ojamajo Doremi”, “Digimon Adventure”, and
Those of us who were watching “Ojamajo Doremi” and “Digimon Adventure” in front of the TV, have grown up 20 years later.

Some of us are working as office workers, some of us are attending universities, some of us are working as freelancers in our hometowns.
Some are working as office workers, some are attending universities, and some are working as freelancers in their hometowns.
Their ages vary from 19 to 27 years old, and their occupations and places of residence are also different.
However, the three main characters of this work and us all have something in common.
We used to watch “Ojamajo Doremi” back then. That’s because we were watching the morning anime.

We already knew that “Ojahamajo Doremi” was an anime.
I know it’s a made-up story and that there is no real magic.
What is hitting these girls is reality.
They are worried about their relationship with their boss, their career path, and their inability to break up with their bad boyfriend.
They are worried about their relationship with their boss, their career path, and their inability to break up with their bad boyfriend.

Their worries seem so raw.
I used to watch “Oja Majo Doremi” back in the day, and now as adults, we too have similar problems.
I’m sure we’ve all been troubled by something similar.
The three main characters are portrayed in such a way that you can somewhat identify with them.
It’s a very emotional story.

Magic in the Name of Coincidence

.
The three of them meet because of “Ojamajo Doremi”.
It’s a small chance, really, to visit the western-style building that became the model for “MAHO-DO”.
It’s only because they are fans of the show that they visit it and meet each other by chance.
Tired of their daily lives, they visited the sacred place of their favorite anime.
They were just looking for healing.

“You guys used to watch Ojamajo Doremi, right?”

Three people of different ages, different places, and different jobs met, talked, and got to know each other through the common thread of “Oja Majo Doremi.
“You guys watched Oja Majo Doremi, right?
We talked, drank, and talked about Oja Majo Doremi.

It’s rare to make new friends when you grow up.
That’s why the girls enjoy talking with their “new friends” about common topics.
The girls enjoyed talking with their “new friends” about common topics, and it made me smile to see how they got to know each other.
I can’t help but grin when they talk about otaku in pubs because they are adults.

The girls go on a “pilgrimage to the holy land” trip.

Holy Land Pilgrimage

This film has a wonderful depiction of scenery, as if it were directed by Junichi Sato.
Junichi Sato, the director of the “Ojamajo Doremi” series, has been working on this film for the past 20 years.
The depiction of the cityscape is just like the work that Junichi Sato, who directed the “Ojakotodoremi” series, has created over the past 20 years.
The depiction of the cityscape is not as beautifully drawn as that of Makoto Shinkai’s works.
Rather, it is drawn in a way that does not compromise the atmosphere of “Ojakamotodoremi”.

You can travel with the three of them to a stage that appeared in “Ojah Majo Doremi”.
You will naturally feel as if you are traveling with the three of them.
There is a little bit of a digest scene when you go on a pilgrimage to a sacred place, or when you see a landscape or cityscape, or when you travel by train.
But if you are a fan of Oja Witch Doremi
However, if you like Ojamajo Doremi, you’ll feel like you’re on a pilgrimage to the holy places together.

During the pilgrimage, the three confide in each other about their problems and current situations.
Despite the relaxed atmosphere of the trip, the problems the girls are facing are difficult.
An office worker who was moved because her boss didn’t like her.
A college student struggling to interact with a student with developmental disabilities.
A college student struggling to interact with a student with developmental disabilities, and a freelancer who can’t break up with her deadbeat boyfriend and is searching for the face of the father she left when she was a child.

The problems these women are facing are the same as stagnation.
They feel they need to break out of their current situation, but are unable to do so.
When I was a child, I had more freedom.
I would have believed that I could use magic and even fly.
But as an adult, I can’t do that.

In the midst of all this, I say to myself, let’s give magic a try and believe in it for once.
Because I’m stagnant, because I can’t help myself.
I know there is no magic, but I need to rely on something.
I can’t take a step forward from this situation. Clutching the fake magic ball.
The girl who loved Ai-chan casts a spell in the hope of seeing her father.

It’s not that magic really happens.
However, it leads to a magic called coincidence.

Bumping into each other

.
Reuniting with my father by chance doesn’t always lead to a good outcome.
After divorcing her mother, her father has a new family, and she is rejected.
She is confused by the rejection and takes it out on the two people she was supposed to be close to.
She is the best of the three.

She is the youngest of the three. She’s the youngest of the three, and is begged for money by her no-good boyfriend.
She is spoiled by her boyfriend and can’t leave him even though she knows she should. She is young in thinking.
That’s why she takes it out on him.
However, the development of the story and the description of the relationship between the three is a bit outlandish.
It can’t be denied that it’s a “development for the sake of development.

However, the development leading to the reconciliation is typical of this work.
What are friends who have quarreled with each other supposed to do in such a situation?
I wondered what Doremi-chan would have done in such a situation.

She rewatched “Ojakamajo Doremi” on BD and found out that Doremi-chan had a fight with Hazuki.
When she saw the episode where Doremi-chan had a fight with Hazuki, she had an idea.
The best way to solve the problem is to meet her and apologize honestly.
It’s hard to do that when you’re an adult, but by looking back at “Oja Witch Doremi
This is something that is difficult to do when you grow up.

The way the story unfolds, the straightforward storyline, is typical of this work.
In this work, there is a straightforward storyline.
They gradually become friends, show their weaknesses, sometimes fight, and
Sometimes they quarrel, sometimes they make up, and sometimes they get along better.

In the midst of all this, they take a step forward.
Some quit their jobs, some take a new path, some break up with their boyfriends.
Some break up with their boyfriends.
The stagnant “now” changes through encounters.

30 minutes left

But with about 30 minutes left in the film
But with 30 minutes left in the film, most of the problems of the three have been solved.
What they are going to do for the remaining 30 minutes is another pilgrimage to a holy place.
I felt that the pilgrimage scene was a bit too long, and that was a drawback.
The last 30 minutes of the episode felt like an afterthought.

The last 30 minutes of the episode felt like an afterthought, especially when it suddenly appeared with only 30 minutes to go.
The last 30 minutes of the episode felt like an afterthought.
I understand that it is a character that is meant to be a tolerance for the male fans of Ojakamotodoremi.
However, one of the three main characters suddenly falls in love with him.
One of the three main characters suddenly falls in love with him. There are less than 30 minutes left.

This means that she meets him on her first pilgrimage to the holy land, and then she falls in love with him.
It would have been easier to accept the story if there had been a hint of romance, but
I would have been able to accept it if I had met him on the first pilgrimage to the holy land and if there had been a hint of romance.
However, if I suddenly fell in love with a character who appeared out of nowhere with not much time left in the story, and the romance was portrayed in a rambling manner, it just didn’t feel right.

His character setting is also a mystery, and his love for “Ojahamajo Doremi
His characterization of his love for “Ojaman Doremi” is good, but he has a history of getting burned on social media (for reasons unknown).
He is not good at communicating with people and has no friends.
He is not good at communicating with people and has no friends.

I confess my feelings to him. She confesses her feelings to him, and with her magic words, he takes the first step forward.
It’s a development that is also depicted in the middle of the story, and I can understand if it comes true, but
But he refuses her for the reasons mentioned above. She refuses because she is a person who hurts others.

In response, she suggests, “I can change because I met you two and you changed me.
He seems to agree with her, but in the end he rejects her.
He seems to agree with her, but in the end he rejects her. If he was convinced by her opinion that he could change.
If he’s convinced by her opinion that he can change, he’ll start going out with her from a friend and change.
But then he gets dumped and that’s it.

I couldn’t keep up with the end of the story.
I should have cut out the redundant pilgrimage scenes and delved a little deeper into his character.
I thought it would have been better to cut out the redundant pilgrimage scenes and explore his character a little more. It’s a point where I feel
It’s a point where I feel that

The end

However, the last part is a refreshing development.
The girls come to an answer about “magic” in their own way.
Even if they can’t fly, they each have their own magic.
What they couldn’t do on their own, they were able to do because the three of them met and became friends.
They were able to change and move forward.

They arrived at the answer that everyone can really use magic.
What you don’t have, someone else has.
What you don’t have is special to someone else, and that’s magic.

I go back to my childhood, when I was free and felt like I could do anything.
And then I met my friends. Back when I thought I could be who I wanted to be.
The time when we thought we could be whoever we wanted to be, the time when we were clinging to the TV, and “Doremi and the others” who are there.

Until then, only “shadows” were depicted, but we could hear “voices” somewhere.
But now they remember how free they felt when they were children.
They appear in front of the girls.

Even though they are adults, they will never forget the feeling of freedom they had when they were children, the feeling of being able to do anything.
Even as adults, we need to remember the importance of being free and being able to do anything.
The film closes with a pleasant ending and that song.

If you look at it as a sequel to “Oja Witch Doremi”, you will be disappointed.
If you think it’s a sequel to “Oja Majo Doremi”, you’ll be disappointed.
If you think of it as a sequel to “Ojah Majo Doremi”, you will be disappointed, but if you think of it as a movie for those who watched “Ojah Majo Doremi”, you will be deeply impressed.
However, if you think of it as a film for those of us who watched “Ojagajo Doremi”, you will be deeply touched by this work.

As a child, the viewer becomes an adult, goes on a pilgrimage to a sacred place, meets other fans, and becomes friends with them.
They become friends, talk about their problems, sometimes clash with each other
Sometimes they clash with each other, sometimes they push each other, and sometimes they are pushed to change their current selves and take a step forward.

It’s a simple story, but
The story is simple, but by adding elements typical of “Ojamajo Doremi” and comical direction
The story unfolds without becoming too heavy.
It is a work that invites the sympathy of the generation that has watched the morning anime of those days.

It is a work that invites sympathy from the generation that watched morning anime back then.
However, it does not deny magic. This work is never
It’s not saying, “Grow up.
Rather, it wants us to remember the freedom we felt as children because we have become adults.
It’s a story that asks us to remember the freedom we felt as children.

Personal impression: Akira Ishida

.
Personally, I laughed at Akira Ishida’s performance of a certain character.
He played a very different character in “Onimei no Blade” as well as “Looking for the Witch Apprentice”.
I don’t know why I was laughing at him playing a completely different character.
By the way, don’t worry, he doesn’t use destructive killing in this work.

I myself don’t have that many memories of Ojamajo Doremi.
I only remembered the characters and the story.
I went to see this movie.
I went to see this film with only a vague recollection of the characters and the story, but I was moved to tears without any problems.

I’d be lying if I said there wasn’t something that bothered me, but
It was a work that conveyed the nostalgia and the message that the producers wanted to convey.
