This is a highly underrated, extremely fun series that can occasionally get pretty sad and heavy. No one talks about this hidden gem enough.

 No.30175

It's one I'd heard of and planned to eventually get into due to its extreme length.
>The 1999 series has 51 eps
>the 2000 series has 49
>2001 has 50
>2002 has 51

Were there none after that? 201 episodes I can do, less than Bleach.

I downloaded this last year and I still plan to watch it.

I've read a lot of people praise it and will definitely give it a chance.

 No.30203

Doremi has its own really odd imageboard subculture (mostly on [s4s] and 4chan /a/ recently since the movie has sparked some interest in people). The american fanbase for the show is a mix of autistic babytalkers and smellfag lolicons. The show itself is very cyute, has nice music and good characters. 50 eps for each season may seem off putting to casual anime fans, but pretty much every episode is a good one.

Also fun fact: The director of 4kids once said the Ojamajos were "sexy"

>Were there none after that?
A new movie is being released in 2020, along with new flash shorts being uploaded on the Toei yt channel (four or five of them have already been uploaded and subbed by fans)

 No.30208

I watched a the 4kids version back when Saturday morning cartoons were a thing.
It was cute but nothing about it stood out or anything. It just seemed like a very standard magic succubus show made for very little succubi.
I guess what I am saying is, it is no cardcaptors and it feels like the demographic is much younger.

Toei didn't let them air seasons 2-4 because the dub was fucking beyond terrible. Like worse than the usual 4kids dub. They even replaced the sweet BGM for no reason at all; I can understand replacing the lyrical japanese songs (or y'know, just dubbing them in english like they were supposed to) but they replaced all of the tracks and the sound effects too. It's like they thought they knew better than the original show's staff.

I encourage you to watch every episode (including the two short films) the way they were meant to be watched. Here's every episode https://mega.nz/#F!jwlhQDCB!uTbfE3l3Nq-Vg9XR3K-JOg

I'm getting kinda burnt out again watching this show, I love it but there's just so much of it and there's a lot of filler. I got burnt out on it last year halfway through the sharp season, I'm just about done motto and I'm thinking I might take another hiatus on the series, just for a little bit.

Just finish it anon. Dokkan is so good. Honestly I don't get why people don't like Motto. Sure its the least dark season out of the four but it fleshes out momochi and it has some of the best episodes in the show

I still enjoyed Dokkan a lot, but I will agree, that was when the show started getting kind of old. But, it was still a great season and fantastic finale altogether.

What was the point of Oyajide? Why did they have such an obvious pedophile in a kids show? He got so much lamer and got more Flanderized as the show went on too.

 No.31671

Looking back on season one, Onpu could be pretty mean.

 No.31694

>>31671
She's a lot of people's least favorite character for some reason. Even when she became "good" people still said she could come off as a bit condescending or insincere, but I think that's because that's the way her job is; and outside of her friends, she doesn't really socialize that much to probably realize how she is coming off to others. Show business is a cold and cruel venture, Onpu's big fear was that she didn't want to end up being perceived as a washed up child star, like her mother. Onpu has a lot of determination and dedication to her profession, she takes offense when people think that being famous is all glitz and glamour and fail to realize that stars have feelings and pain too. In the end, she realizes that she wants to do roles that SHE wants for her career and not only that, she doesn't want to just be known as a child idol, but known for more serious and more challenging roles, to expand her horizion and worth, so to speak.

 No.31703

What were your thoughts on Naisho? I thought it was good. I enjoyed the OP and ED, and I liked how the animation was very slightly different, had more of a cartoonish feel to it.
>Episode 1
I really enjoyed this episode, Kotake got some nice character development, the plot was really fun and who doesn't enjoy just seeing the original Doremi, Hazuki and Aiko trio?
>Episode 2
This one was alright, We never got to see Onpu and Momoko by themselves too often, it was a fairly sweet episode, but I felt like we've seen the Momoko/Majo Monroe story quite a bit by then
>Episode 3
Another decent episode, Aiko is such a determined little succubus and she has a great spirit. This episode was decently funny too. Act three is well done.
>Episode 4
This episode is a bit slower and on the uneventful side, but it gives Onpu some great character development as we get a closer look at Why she chose to become an idol/actress. This is also the only time in the series where Onpu has her hair down too.
>Episode 5
This is, hands down, the worst episode of Naisho. What an embarrassing, painful episode to sit through; if you like juvenile baby and poop jokes, or like seeing Pop get humiliated, or even like seeing Majo Rika and Lala act like morons, then this might be for you.
>Episode 6
I loved this one, Baaya is such an underrated character and she finally got her own episode with some pretty tragic stuff happening in it, this one is worth checking out.
>Episode 7
This one was kinda meh, wasn't anything too funny or exciting, kind of feels like a rehash of the one Motto episode where the succubi go to Yokohoma.
>Episode 8
This one wasn't that great either, Shigeru just kind of acts like a dweeb the whole time, SOS trio get away Scot free, and Onpu acts out of character and seems dickish and smug the whole time. They also rehash an entire scene from Motto too.
>Episode 9
This one was really fun and pretty hilarious too. The camaraderie between the Ojamajo team is wonderful and they play off very well against their other team mates. Only real complaint is that Dela kinda acts like a jerk for no reason.
>Episode 10
This one was, alright. This episode was a bit more lighthearted, but I thought the boy who wanted to marry Aiko was very obnoxious and unfunny, not my favorite one, but it had some sweet things in it.
>Episode 11
This Valentine's episode was well made. It was cute, heartwarming, funny, and who doesn't love the Hazuki/Masaru relationship?
>Episode 12
Oh man, my heart was in my throat the whole time, it was one of the saddest things I had seen in a long time too. The last few minutes of this episode are also very well done, without giving anything away, please watch this one.
>Episode 13
Technically the finale episode of the series, it's a pretty cute and heartwarming send off to a great show. It shows that magic does continue on in the future and that it's in good hands.

Maybe they were supposed to do more Doremi after this? I don't know, but anyway, it's a great series and I recommend it to anyone who is a fan of magic succubi.

 No.31811

 No.31838

Anyone else find Hana in Dokkan to be insufferable? She gets way too much screen time and is just so loud all the time.

Also, are all the boys in her class supposed to be smitten by her or something? Because they let her join in on stuff that excludes all the other succubi.

 No.31841

>>31838
I mean, she being insufferable is somewhat justified because she had the mental age of a 2-3 years old succubus and they gave her screen time to show how she grow through the previous seasons and to make her feel more like a character rather than a plot device to keep the story going, I get your point but I found her to be funny. I couldn't think of a good explication to the other thing so I guess they let her join because she was a new classmate and was too innocent to not keep a secret

 No.31945

I enjoyed this series quite a bit, totally one of the better mahou shojo shows out there.

 No.31946

I ended really loving Tamaki Reika, she was a bastard in the first two seasons, but after the whole racism episode she really started to chill out and act more friendly to the Ojamajos. Her interactions with Hana in Dokkan was always gold.

>>31841
The stay gold episode had that childhood innocence feel, had that grand, bigger than it actually is kind of feel to it too. Such a great episode. It's relatable to kids because it has that sense of wonder and adventure with a hint of camaraderie; and it's relatable to adults because they're the ones who see through the plans and try to stop the kids before they get hurt.

 No.31971

>>31946
Tamaki is fantastic, I loved her interactions with Doremi, especially when they were actually getting along. I'm so happy that Tamaki wasn't just a generic bully character just for the sake of it, she actually had her own insecurities and fears to deal with that made her seem more vulnerable. She genuinely looked sad and ashamed of herself when Momoko accused her of being a bad person in the racism episode, that was definitely the turning point for her character. She knows that she talks up a big game and acts like a hotshot, but she's not actually that good at interacting with kids without that persona she has for herself, kind of like she's wearing a mask of sorts to hide her real feelings of inadequacy. Luckily, Momoko forgave her after she apologized and they became friends, and by being Momoko's friend, Tamaki grew closer to Doremi and the others and became much nicer to them, compared to before.

Will this movie ever be localized/shown in North American theaters?

i started watching this show a couple weeks ago and now i’m on episode 33, and although i am enjoying it and i can see there are some heavy themes at play, is it true there are some genuinely dark moments in sharp and dokkan? i started watching this show because i glanced at this thread a while ago and i would feel a little silly if this all leads to naught.

It's not the most consistently written show, I'll say that.

The subplot involving Majorika and Majoruka wanting to become the next queen gets screwed up after Hana is introduced. Like, what was the point of season one then?

Sharp is definitely the weakest season of the show, at least to me it is.
