Nobuko Yokokawa is a classmate and friend of the Ojamajos, especially of Aiko. After the first two seasons, she is in class with Doremi and Momoko (and later, with Hana).

In her new class, she befriends Miho Maruyama. Together, they produce some mangas.



Nobuko is a very talented, creative girl. She loves to write stories. Especially in the beginning of the series, she often lied. She uses lies, because she is very creative. In third grade, she wrote a story about a detective called Nobou Tatekawa. He solves exciting cases with a friend, a professor and his dog.

In fourth grade, she wrote a play, which was performed by her class in front of the school.

Since she visits the fifth grade, she works together with her friend Miho. Miho draws the drawings of their mangas. Nobuko works on the text.

In sixth grade, Nobuko and Miho write a manga about Hana, which made Doremi and her friends fear that it would expose Hana's secret as a witch.


Nobuko is a fair-skinned girl with blue eyes and blonde hair that is about shoulder-length and curled.

She wears a light-pink dress with puff sleeves, the collar and the border are flouncy. She also wears a purple gilet. She wears white socks and purple strap ballet flats.

Ojamajo Doremi 16

She now is in the same class as Doremi.

Nobuko and Miho were revealed to have been working together as the fake author "Misora Komachi" and attended the same middle school. But the girls happen to realize that they arent attending the same high school and didn't even speak to one-another during their reunion.

Nobuko tells them that Miho disbanded their friendship when she refused to take the exam to get into Aogaoka Academy. But Miho only calls Nobuko a liar and so they lure Miho to the park and Doremi demands an explanation from Nobuko, to make sure Miho hears it. It was revealed that Nobuko did lie, but only because she thought Miho was better off without her. One day they happened to visit a magazine company to ask an editor for some advice. But after they were encouraged to keep trying, but when Nobuko left to use the restroom, the person admitted that Miho should partner up with a writer befitting her talents, rather then someone who makes nonsensical stories like Nobuko. She was sure if Miho did then she would debut right away.

Miho is shocked to learn this and Nobuko admits that she didn't tell her because she didn't like to be known as dead weight, while Miho had her talents acknowledged. Miho also revealed that she was offered an important job for a famous writer but she turned it down and sent the manuscript she recieved back. She only wants to keep working as Misora Komachi with Nobuko, and with that, their friendship is saved and they continue writing Manga together.
