Anime / Yadamon

Go To

An anime series created by SUEZEN, produced by Group TAC and originally aired by NHK from 1992 to 1993.

Yadamon is a young Magical Girl of the Cute Witch variety who gets banished to the human world by her mother after wreaking havoc in the Witch Forest.

On Earth, the very curious Yadamon gets into more mischief, learns to use her magical powers, makes friends with the humans, and faces threats by evil magical forces.

Not to be confused with Chibikko Kaiju Yadamon (ちびっこ怪獣ヤダモン, Yadamon the Little Monster), an anime of The '60s.

This series provides examples of:

  • Big Bad: A powerful witch named Kira becomes this in later episodes. She was sealed away by the Great Witch Beril and Yadamon's mother, and she's out for revenge
  • Cute Witch: Yadamon is a cute little girl with magical powers, who's learning how to use them for good.
  • Fairy Companion: Timon is this to Yadamon, keeping an eye on her and using his Time Stands Still power to help her.
  • Flying Broomstick: Actually it's a flying vacuum cleaner.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Yadamon can transform hers into butterfly wings.
  • Hair Wings: Yadamon can transform her pigtails into this, and they're so cute-looking that they provide the image for the trope page.
  • Magical Girl Queenliness Test: Of a sort — the Queen hopes that Yadamon's banishment to Earth will teach her a lesson and help her mature more.
  • Muggle Best Friend: Jean is a human boy and the first friend that Yadamon makes on Earth.
  • The End of the World as We Know It: The biggest wish of the evil clone of Yadamon is to being this upon Earth.
  • Musical Episode: Hanna bursts into song during Episode 23, complete with dancing, Imagine Spots, and colorful backgrounds.
  • Time Stands Still: Timon has this power. There's a big drawback there, however: in doing so, he must shape shift into a clock and is rendered unable to move till the transformation ends.
