From the completely new movie celebrating the 20th anniversary of “Ojamajo Doremi”, called “Majo Minarai wo Sagashite” (release date: May. 15, 2020), the magical main visual has been revealed. Additionally, as the additional male casts, Miura Shouhei, Ishida Akira, and Hamano Kenta will participate in the movie and the comments from each guest cast have arrived.
“Majo Minarai wo Sagashite” is the “magical” story for adults where Sora, Mira, and Reika, the 3 adults who have different age, live in different locations and have different worries, visiting places related “Doremi” and finding precious things that they have forgotten when they became adults.
Miura Shouhei, Ishida Akira, and Hamano Kenta, the 3 additional guests who have been announced this time, will play the male characters who will progress the male characters with 3 heroines. Miura will play Oomiya Ryuuichi, the university student who hits it off together with 3 heroines that they all liked “Ojamajo Doremi”, and who will be later fallen love with Sora. Ishida plays Yabe Hayato, the subordinate of Mire in the same trading company who love Mire more than the feeling of respect. Hamano plays Kubo Seiya, the useless and dependent boyfriend of Reika who always says that he will be the professional musician one day.
It seems to Ishida, who is a professional voice actor, and Miura and Hamano, who are the first time trying the recording, will make the story even more colorful.
The main poster visual had also been released. There is a catchphrase saying, “What would you do if you got a special power?”, while the 3 heroines go for a journey in the town under the warmth of the spring sun. It implicates the beginning of the new magical story with Ojamajo Doremi.
There are the witch apprentices at the end of the town, and the poster was done in a magical quality which increases the expectations toward the movie.
The movie “Majo Minarai wo Sagashite” will be released in the nationwide theaters from May. 15, 2020. The pre-order tickets with limited gifts will be sold from Mar. 20.

【Miura Shouhei, playing Oomiya Ryuuichi】
I watched and loved “Ojamajo Doremi” when I was a child, but when I watch again as an adult, this anime is not limited for young children, but also has charming story containing friendship, growth, and family environments, and I became to love “Ojamajo Doremi” even more.
So, I advertised the release of the latest movie of “Ojamajo Doremi” with “my own decision” on my Twitter. lol
I didn’t expect to receive an offer as a voice actor, so when I was offered, I responded immediately saying, “I will do it!”, both with surprise and happiness.
I like Onpu-chan, so I feel like I’m in a dream because I can play Oomiya Ryuuichi, the character who also loves Onpu-chan like me. Oomiya is blunt and clumsy, but he is also a pure boy. The director advises me to “play the character any way you want” when I was thinking about the acting for Oomiya, and that advice allowed me to play the character naturally.
This movie can remember the feelings of childhood for both people who watched “Ojamajo Doremi” when they are young and the people who watch the series for the first time. This is the story of “friendship”, connected from “your favorite thing”. Please feel the “magic” of Doremi and her friends at the movie theaters.
【Ishida Akira, playing Yabe Hayato】
Yabe who I played is the underclassman of Mire, who is one of the protagonists. He has a dog-like personality who follows Mire and tries to protect her. I tried to act him to deliver the message that he also lives her the best while helping the ladies at the same time.
Please invite friends who you enjoyed “Ojamajo Doremi” with when you were the child to the movie theaters and enjoy the movie.
【Hamano Kenta, playing Kubo Seiya】
I wanted to participate as the voice actor one more time, so I am honored to receive an offer. Additionally, I will be playing the boyfriend of Reika, who is played by Momota-san! lol But I learned that he was useless boy. lol Seiya who I play is the useless boy who depends on Reika. But he is not evil and has friendliness who can enjoy Reika for staying with him.
I realized that there is hope everywhere after reading the script. I think you can receive warm power from the world of anime. This movie is following the lives in reality, so please watch the movie and feel the warmth.
