At the beginning, the shadow of a nostalgic figure is projected.
“Doremi” asks them with the voice of those days, as they were at that time.
What do you want to be when you grow up? When.
The main character of this work is not “Oja Witch Doremi”.

The title does not say “Oja Witch Doremi”,
As a fan of “Oja Witch Doremi”, the continuation of their story
Maybe it will be seen over 20 years? Someone should have expected it.
A novel work in which Doremi and his friends became “high school students” after the animation
It was out, and many would have wanted to visualize it.

For that reason, those who were expecting it are the part that eats the shoulders.
However, although Doremi and his friends are not the main characters in this work,
In a sense, “I” at that time is the story of the main character.

We 20 years later

We were children 20 years ago,
“Oja Witch Doremi” and “Digimon Adventure”,
We who were watching in front of TV, we have grown up after 20 years.

Some are office workers and office ladies, some are attending college,
Some people are part-time workers locally.
Ages vary from 19 to 27 years old, and occupations and places of residence are different.
However, we have something in common with the three main characters in this work.
At that time, I was watching “Oja Witch Doremi”. I was watching anime in the morning.

I already know that “Oja Witch Doremi” is an anime.
I know that there is really no magic in myths.
It is “reality” that is attacking them.
After joining the company, I was worried about my relationship with my boss, I was worried about my career path,
They are worried about themselves who cannot part with their bad boyfriend.

Their worries feel even fresh.
At that time, we who became adults watching “Oja Witch Doremi”
You must have been troubled by something similar.
There is a character depiction that allows you to overlap yourself somewhere among the three main characters,
Invited to embrace emotions.

A magic named coincidence

Such three people meet with “Oja Witch Doremi”.
In the Western-style building that became the model of “MAHO-do”, which is a really trivial kick
Because they are fans, they visited and met only by chance.
Tired of everyday life, I visited the holy land of my favorite anime
I just wanted healing

“You guys, did you see the witch Doremi?”

Three people with different ages, places of residence, and jobs are called “Oja Witch Doremi”
Meet, talk, drink, and meet in common
Let the story of Oja Witch Doremi bloom.

After becoming an adult, it is rare to make new friends.
That’s why they talk on a common topic with their “new friends”
It ’s funny how they are having fun
Because I am an adult, I grin at the otaku discussion at the izakaya.

Such girls go on a “sacred place pilgrimage” trip.

Holy Land Tour

This work seems to be directed by “Junichi Sato” and has a wonderful depiction of the landscape.
Director Junichi Sato, who was trying to direct the “Oja Witch Doremi” series,
It makes you feel the work that you have created in the last 20 years
The depiction of the cityscape is not a beautiful drawing like the work of “Director Makoto Shinkai”
It is drawn with a drawing that does not destroy the atmosphere of “Oja Witch Doremi”.

I went to the stage that appeared in “Oja Witch Doremi” with the three of us,
It makes me feel like I’m traveling with three people.
A little sacred place pilgrimage, when reflecting landscapes and cityscapes, or when traveling by train
I’m curious about the many digest scenes,
People who like Oja Witch Doremi can feel like pilgrimage to the sacred place together.

During such a pilgrimage to the sacred place, the three confide their worries and current situation.
Contrary to a leisurely trip, the problems they have are difficult.
An office lady who was disliked by her boss and moved
University students struggling to interact with students with developmental disabilities,
A part-time jobber who is looking for a vestige of his father who left when he was young without breaking up with his bad boyfriend.

The problems they have are the same as stagnant.
I think I have to break through the status quo, but I can’t.
More freedom when I was a kid
I should have believed that I could fly in the sky using magic
You can’t do that when you grow up.

In such a situation, I say that I should try and believe in magic only once.
Because it’s stagnant, because I can’t help myself
I know there’s no magic, but I have to rely on something
I cannot take a step from this situation. Grab a fake magic ball,
A girl who liked Ai-chan casts a spell with the desire to meet her father

“Pamel Clar Clari Lollipopn”

Magic doesn’t really happen.
However, it leads to a magic called chance.

Even if my father accidentally resumes it, it does not always lead to good results.
The father, who divorced his mother, has a new family and his daughter is rejected.
I was confused by such a refusal, and I should have been on good terms with feelings close to eight.
It also hits two people.

She is the youngest of the three. Begged for money by a bad boyfriend,
My boyfriend is sweet and I can’t leave even if I know it’s useless. The way of thinking is also young.
That’s why it’s eight hits.
However, the development around here and the depiction of the relationship between the three people are a little outlandish.
It is undeniable that it is a “development to make a development”.

However, the development that leads to reconciliation seems to be this work.
What should I do with my friends who have had a quarrel?
I wondered what happened to “Doremi-chan” at such a time.

She reviewed “Oja Witch Doremi” again on BD, and Doremi-chan
I think of it when I see the times when I had a fight with Hazuki-chan.
Meet and honestly apologize, that’s the number one solution.
“Oja Witch Doremi” that it becomes difficult when you grow up
Review yourself by looking back.

How to make a development like this work, a straight story development
There is in this work, and new friends made as adults
Gradually get along, show your weaknesses, sometimes quarrel,
Make up and get to know each other better.

Take a step in such a situation.
Some quit the company, some go on a new path,
Some break up with their boyfriend.
The stagnant “now” changes with encounters.

30 minutes remaining

However, when the scale of the work is left for about 30 minutes
Most of the three people’s worries have been resolved.
30 minutes left, if you think about what to do, it’s a pilgrimage to the sacred place again (bitter smile)
It is a drawback that the pilgrimage scene is a little too long.
This 30 minutes of the last has become an episode with a feeling of retrofitting.

Especially, it came out suddenly even though there was only 30 minutes left
“Doremi male fan” is a mystery in various ways.
As an allowance for male fans in the work Oja Witch Doremi
I know that he is a character, but suddenly out of the three main characters
One falls in love with him. The scale is less than 30 minutes.

Now I met him on my first pilgrimage to the Holy Land,
It was easy to accept if it smelled such a romantic element,
I suddenly fell in love with the character who suddenly appeared while there was not much time left,
Even if I draw a love affair, it doesn’t look right.

His character setting is also a mystery and he likes “Oja Witch Doremi”
Although the setting itself is good, there is a past that burned on SNS (reason unknown),
He says he is not good at communicating with people and has no friends.
There is a mysterious setting.

I confess to him.The development of taking a step with magical words
It is a development drawn even in the middle stage, and if it comes true, I still know,
It will be refused for the above reasons. Because I am a person who hurt people.

On the other hand, she said, “I also met them and changed, so I should change.”
I made a suggestion, and he seems to be convinced of it,
In the end, it will be shaken.If you are convinced that she can change
I wonder if it will be a flow that will change when you start dating with friends
It was shaken while letting the viewer expect it.

I can’t keep up with the development of this final stage
A little bit more of his pilgrimage scene
Shouldn’t we dig into the character?When
It’s a point you feel

However, the last is a refreshing development.
They give their own answers about “magic”.
Even if you can’t fly in the sky, the magic that each has.
It’s because three people met and became friends that they couldn’t do alone
They changed, moved forward.

We arrive at the answer that everyone can really use magic.
Someone has something that I don’t have,
What you don’t have is special and magical to someone.

Freedom as a kid, returning to myself when I felt like I could do anything
Meet “Doremi”. At that time when I thought I could be who I wanted to be
They were clinging to the front of the TV at that time, and the “Doremi” there.

Until then, only “shadows” were drawn, and “voices” could be heard somewhere.
Such “Doremi” reminded me of the free feelings I had when I was a kid.
Appear in front of them.

Feelings of freedom as a child, feelings of being able to do anything
Makes you feel the importance of “remembering” even as an adult
The movie closes with a pleasant last and that song.

Overall, if you think of it as a sequel to “Oja Witch Doremi”
Although there is a part that eats a lot of shoulders,
Think of it as a movie to give to us who were watching “Oja Witch Doremi”
It’s a work that slowly stains.

A viewer who was a child becomes an adult, pilgrimages to the sacred place and meets the same fan
Get along, vomit your worries, sometimes bump into each other,
Sometimes my back is pushed and I am changing and I can take a step forward.

Although the story is simple,
By adding elements and comical productions that are typical of “Oja Witch Doremi”
The story unfolds without becoming too heavy,
It is a work that invites the “sympathy” of the generation who watched anime in the morning at that time.

This work determines that “Oja Witch Doremi” is fiction.
However, he still does not deny magic.This work never
I’m not saying “become an adult”.
Rather, because I became an adult, I felt “free feelings as a child.”
It’s a story that I want you to remember.

Personally, Akira Ishida played a certain character and laughed (laughs).
At the same time as “Looking for a witch apprentice”, he is also very active in “Kimetsu no Yaiba”.
For some reason I laughed at him playing a completely different character.
By the way, please be assured that this work does not use destruction.

I myself don’t have that much memory of Oja Witch Doremi.
I somehow remember the story with the character
I went to see this work,
It was a work that I could be impressed with without any problems.

It’s a lie if there’s nothing to worry about,
It was a work that conveys nostalgia and the message that the production side wants to convey.
