''Oku-sama wa Mahou Shoujo: Bewitched Agnes'' (or ''My Wife is a Magical Girl: Bewitched Agnes'') is a magical girl comedy. It focuses on the married woman Ureshiko Asaba, who's actually a MagicalGirl called Agnes Bell. Two individuals enter her life: The MagicalGirl Cruje Gapp, who's supposed to be Ureshiko's successor, and Kagura Tatsumi, who recently moved away from his college and into the boarding house Ureshiko lives at.

All is not well, as Ureshiko is the current guardian of Wonderland, which her mother created, but Cruje may erase Wonderland and recreate it after her own will, once she succeeds Ureshiko. At the same time, Ureshiko grows farther away from her husband, and closer to Kagura.

!!This anime includes examples of:
* AlmostKiss: Considering what will happen if a MagicalGirl ever kisses someone, you can expect this once or twice.
* AmicablyDivorced: Ureshiko and Tamotsu aren't officially divorced, but they don't live together anymore. Ureshiko comes over to help him clean once in a while. [[spoiler:In the end, they presumably do get divorced amicably, since Tamotsu told Kagura to treat her well]].
* AnimateInanimateObject: Several of the household items in Ureshiko's home are alive, thanks to her magic.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: Episode 4 features a giant teddy bear walking through the town. It's [[SubvertedTrope soon revealed]] that it was only a model of the town in Cruje's room.
* BeachEpisode: Episode 7 shows Kagura going on a date to the beach with [[spoiler: Sayaka, transformed into an adult]].
* {{Bokukko}}: Chane who, like her twin sister, also dresses in a [[ElegantGothicLolita Victorian boy's style]].
* BrainFreeze: Ururu gets one from sweeping an iced drink. She does it again once she gets a refill.
* BroughtDownToNormal: Cruje deliberately casts a spell on herself to lock away her magical powers. Naturally, [[AlwaysNeedWhatYouGaveUp she ends up in situations where those powers would be very useful]].
* CantHaveSexEver: If a MagicalGirl kisses someone, she will lose all her powers. Whether actual sex has the same effect or not isn't explored. However, Ureshiko is once shown to be [[ModestyBedsheet naked]] with her husband, so it's not unreasonable to assume they have had sex.
* CaptainObvious: Late in the series, [[spoiler: Ureshiko Asaba]] is judged to be ''erased'', whereupon [[spoiler: Kagura Tatsumi]] immediately clarifies, "That means you'll die!"
* CatchPhrase: Creator/KikukoInoue's common "Ara, ara," shows up here.

* MagicalGirlQueenlinessTest: It is implied the managers are chosen this way.

* WhoWearsShortShorts: Ururu tends to wear short shorts, as opposed to dresses like her friends.
