posted on by Egan Loo
Toei Animation announced at its "Ojamajo Doremi 20th Anniversary Magical Stage" event at AnimeJapan 2019 on Saturday that it is presenting Flash comedy anime shorts titled Ojamajo Doremi: Owarai Gekijō. The first of 26 episodes is streaming at Toei Animation's YouTube channel now, and the second will start streaming on April 14. A new episode will then debut every two weeks.
Yoshihiko Umakoshi (Boys Over Flowers, Mushishi) is returning from the original Ojamajo Doremi anime to design the "two-heads-high" super-deformed versions of the Ojamajo Doremi characters.
The first Ojamajo Doremi anime series originally premiered in Japan in 1999, and 4Kids began broadcasting a heavily edited version of the series in the United States in 2005 under the title Magical DoReMi.
The event also announced the 2020 anime film Majo Minarai o Sagashite from Toei Animation and the first Ojamajo Doremi anime's director Junichi Sato, episode writer Midori Kuriyama, and Umakoshi.
