''Sally the Witch'' (or ''Mahoutsukai Sally'') is one of the first MagicalGirl {{manga}} and {{anime}}, specifically it's the second to be published but the first to be animated. [[note]] While the original manga for ''Manga/HimitsuNoAkkoChan'' made its debut in Ribon in 1962, Sally was animated first and Akko-chan took Sally's timeslot after Sally ended [[/note]]

* WorldsMostBeautifulWoman: In the 1989 series, Sally's mother is specifically mentioned to be the prettiest lady in the Magical Realms. So much that, when she was a young princess, a VainSorceress put her into an enchanted sleep, and Sally's father had to give her a TrueLovesKiss to save her. [[Literature/SnowWhite Hm, where has this seen this, huh?]] [[spoiler: Little did the Queen know, the Sorceress would later return and try her hand at getting revenge -- now targeting Sally, Sumire, and other human girls... Sally only manages to defeat her when she [[TakeAThirdOption takes another option]] by ''willingly'' eating one of her poisoned apples rather than abandoning the other victims, making the Sorceress [[HeelFaceTurn have a change of heart]].]]

Added DiffLines:

* AdultFear: In one episode, Sally's magic is taken away from her in a test to see if she is capable of being queen one day. Unfortunately, during a field trip, there's a thunderstorm, and Sally, Sumire, and Yoshiko are separated from their class. While trying to get back to them, they [[spoiler:step on a loose rock and almost fall to their deaths, saved only by Sally's father intervening and giving her back her magic at the last moment.]] Of course, since Sally is magical it turned out fine, but three very young children were stranded away from their teacher, parents, and any adults who could help them, and about to [[spoiler: fall off a cliff.]] Yikes.

* MagicWand: One of the two {{trope codifier}}s, the other being [[Animea/MahouTsukaiChappy Chappy]]. Subverted in that Sally only uses wand in the OP of the original series, but in the second series she gets a regular one.

Added DiffLines:

* ComicBookTime: The second series is supposed to take place directly after the first, meaning no time has passed in between and neither Sally nor her friends have aged, and yet it pretty clearly takes place in the 1980s, while the first series is very clearly set in the 1960s.


Added DiffLines:

* SpiritualSuccessor: Manga/HimitsuNoAkkoChan to the first series (obviously, the actual sequel didn't exist yet.) Both were made by TOEI, had a lot of the same people working on them, and Akko-chan took over Sally's timeslot directly after the latter's series finished. The last episode even has Sally BreakingTheFourthWall to thank her viewers for watching and introduce them to her friend Akko-chan, which segues into a preview for the first episode of Akko-chan where there would otherwise be a NextEpisodePreview.

* HealingMagicIsTheHardest: Sally's magical powers do ''not'' include healing, so if she needs to heal people, she must either follow quests (first series - [[spoiler: one of the Hanamura triplets]] is seriously injured, and she has to go searching for the cure) or learn special and complicated spells (second series - she has to combine ElementalPowers to even think of helping [[spoiler: a young dancer with a bad leg before a special performance]]).

* StarCrossedLovers ''and'' PuppyLove: In an episode of the 1989 series, Yoshiko falls in love with a gentle and free spirited boy named Koutarou, who happens to be a genie of the weather. [[spoiler: Yoshiko also is gravely sick and almost dies, so Koutarou has to leave so the cold weather will go with him and she'll get better.]]
