|Title (English)||Sally the Witch (series 1)|
|Title (Japanese)||Mahou tsukutai Sally||Advertising|
|Notes||Japanese name: --@Zg¢T?[
English name: Sally the Witch
Genre(s): fantasy, elementary school
Note(s): The first of the majoko (magical girl) series, from a manga by YOKOYAMA Mitsuteru, published in Ribbon magazine.
|Synopsis|| Sally is a young witch who comes from a magical kingdom and
is sent to live on Earth. She makes herself a house, which looks a bit
like a Disney magic house and makes the neighbours rub their eyes in disbelief. She attends the local school like an ordinary girl. With her live a magical cat and at least one younger child with magical powers.
Characters from the magical world often intrude.
oldish "magical girl" series, distinguished by the outrageous magical events
Sally has a bouffant hairdo of the sort
more usually seen on middle-aged ladies. It's not the greatest series but
it's funny, and whiles away a pleasant 25 minutes.
I have seen only 1 or 2 eps of the 1966 series, eough to verify that the animation style of the 1966 is noticeably "earlier", but much is unchanged in series 2.
