The story begins in a town named Misora. Doremi Harukaze is a third-grader who is interested in magic. After a bad day at school, Doremi wanders into a part of town that is unfamiliar. She then sees Maho-Do, an old magic shop, and decides to look inside. There she finds Majorika. As Doremi looks around she finds out that it is a real magic shop and that Majorika is a witch. When Doremi says this to Majorika, she turns into a green blob. After this, Majorika and her fairy, Lala, decide to teach Doremi how to become a witch, so she can change Majorika back from a blob. Doremi happily agrees, wanting to learn magic.
Doremi becomes a witch in training, called a "witchling". Doremi practices using magic. She learns what it is like to be a witch from her experiences. After something very strange happens, Doremi's friends begin to ask questions. Doremi decides to take Hazuki and Aiko to Maho-Do.
