PlotOjamajo Doremi was divided into two Main arcs. The first spanned from the first for Ojamajo forming, while the second dealt with a new rival and an evil wizard.
The first few episodes focused on Doremi, an unlucky girl becoming a witch after she reveals Majo Rika, the weird shop keeper, to be a witch. A few episodes later, her long time friend and new friend, Hazuki Fujiwara and Aiko Senoo, respectively, discover Doremi was keeping a secret from them and after promising not to tell. This prompts them to become witches as well so as to maintain the secret.
As witch apprentices, the girls work and train to pass the witch apprentice tests. Once they do, they will become full fledged witches. Over time their magic improves, gaining powerful abilities such as Magical Stage and helpful Yousei.The maho-do in this series starts as a magic charm store, which makes charms ranging from necklaces to rings and other jewelry. In a hidden hallway lies the door leading to the witch world, which leads towards the "Back yard" when the moon isnp't smiling down; the latter area is where the girls often practice their magic or go to fly. As the Ojamajos worked however, they made "Magic charms" made from clay. Unlike Majo Rika's, they couldn't really do much as they were made by Apprentice Witches. This meant the wish or desire from said charm wouldn't really work. Had a witch made it, it would either bring good luck or bad luck. Aiko and Hazuki were very good when it came to making these, but unfortuantly Doremi's rarely sold.
Over time, near the end of the first arc and before dealing with trouble caused by Majo Ruka (who was Majo Rika's long time rival who now holds a grudge due to Majo Rika getting the shop), Doremi's sister, Pop, comes to visit the store. Instantly falling in love with Majo Rika and assuming her to be a doll, Pop managed to pull a fast one and bought the Witch Frog. One day, after showing up while the others were in witch form, Doremi and them had no choice but to turn the young girl into a witch as well. She seemed to excel faster than Doremi, but this only made Doremi want to improve herself even faster. She still doesn't appreciate being reminded that Pop is a more competent witch then she is.
It was around this time when Oyajide showed up. He was revealed to have tired to use the bad cards to spread bad luck to people around the world some time ago. He was cuaght by the Witches and imprisoned in the Pureleine Laptop and tasked with retrieving them all. The Ojamajos were given custody of him and his prison when they proved themselves able to resist the temptation to use the Bad Cards for their own personal gain. After that, things seemed to calm down momentarily. A brand new girl shows up to school, who happens to be Onpu Segawa, a popular child idol. She was quickly revealed to be their new rival, a witch apprentice prodigy working under Majo Ruka' tutelage.
Onpu is considered an antaganist to the Ojamajo as a result and proves it by using forbidden magic to get her way without any remorse for her crimes.At the end of the season, Onpu begins to become slightly nicer and less bad with her magic usage. She tries to save the group from becoming witch frogs just after they had worked so hard to become full-fledged witches by casting another spell after their family and friends show up at the Maho-do. Seemingly fine, she passes out shortly after, ending up in the hospital. Pop revealed her magic charm that protected her had broken, meaning Onpu would sleep for 100 years for repeatedly breaking one of the witch rules. But after a heartfelt talk, the Witch Queen decides to let them save her. But whether they fail or succeed, they must give up magic and become normal girls once more...

It only returns to normal when they tearfully ask it to. The plant is then returned to its rightful place in the garden.
