- "Ojamajo Pop, coming right up!"
- ―Pop Harukaze
Pop Harukaze is Doremi's little sister and, like most younger siblings, is pretty rude and bitter towards her older sister. At first, they have a very hard relationship stemming from years of sibling jealousy for one another. Pop is also the fourth ojamajo to appear in the series.
One day, Pop had been in the middle of a tea party with Majorika (plush-chan) when she suddenly got up and ran from the yard. Surprised by such an event, Pop got up and trailed her to the Maho-do, arriving just in time to see Doremi and the others come back. Upon discovering them, Majorika saw no other option than to make her become an apprentice. Pop is very mature and well respected by others. She has many boundaries on her, though, due to being so little and it takes her a while to realize that she should enjoy being a child while she can.
Pop is a fair skinned girl with eyes resembling Doremi's but with a red hue. She has dark pink hair with bangs shaped like Doremi's that fan outward, matching the hair on the bottom of her head while the rest is worn up in pigtails resembling wings.
Originally, she was only depicted in her pale pink uniform sweater with white accenting and a raspberry-colored skirt. Her socks were pale pink and worn with light aqua flats with purple orbs on the tongue of each shoe. In class, she wore a gold pin on the collar of her shirt. Mid-way through the series as Pop got older and left her kindergarten, she began wearing one of her outfits. This being a soft teal blouse and shoes that gained more detailing and lost the orbs. Her skirt and socks were kept the same, though.
At the beach, Pop wears a pink-red bathing suit and some floaty accessories. For bed, she wears a big and loose, pale yellow shirt with purple spots. For winter she usually puts on a cute scarf and a big jacket.

At first, Pop appears to be an annoying, know-it-all little sister pretending to be older then she really is. According to everyone else, however, she is an adorable and smart child with a responsible head on her shoulders. She seems to be perfect or very lucky, but she always gives 110% in everything she does, even it may be something simple like chores. While she has a lot of talent she does poorly in anything creative; much like Doremi.
However, everyone also is well aware that Pop is a young girl who may be mature for her age, but they worry over her if she was to do something new or difficult. She is limited due to this and has an early curfew and bedtime, two of things she hates above all else to the point of getting childish about it. She is a child at heart but she is also highly dependable, even if she can be a little grouchy or stern.
While mostly nice to everyone, she is pretty rude and condescending towards Doremi, which others have picked up as her acting out for being younger. She is jealous of Doremi because she feels she got more attention and freedom than she deserves, given her lack of talent and greedy-nature. She often criticizes or complains about Doremi, but over time she does begin to appreciate her and is more willing to help or listen to her.
Pop's reason for becoming an apprentice witch was much like how Doremi's very own. After buying Majorika from the others, then thinking she lost her and died, Pop began to visit the Maho-do frequently to examine the work done there. One day she came just as the three were returning from the witch world and to make her remain silent, Pop was given a chance to become a witch apprentice.
Pop accepted and was also very happy to see Majorika alive and well. As a witch, Pop seemed much more competent then Doremi. Like Doremi, she didn't really think about her first few spells and caused problems. Such as when she tried to scare the class bully, Kimitaka. Doremi, Aiko, and Hazuki helped but Doremi then lectured Pop for messing up the way she did. Since then, Pop has trained carefully.
She was very slow when it came to upgrading due to the exams taking place at night, and her just being a child, her body cannot handle staying up so late. Due to this, Pop did not get her Crystal ball until the penultimate episode of the series. She has partaken in Magical Stage a few times.
She has a red four-leaf crystal ball.

Light Novel Series
Pop is now in 6th grade (meaning she is around the age Doremi and the others were when the series ended) and she is now taught by Seki, who took over as her teacher in the 5th grade. Pop plans to attend Karen Girls Academy to become a pianist after graduation.
Despite how close the two of them had become at the end of the series, this seems to have taken a few steps backward again. Possibly due to there being a huge age difference again as Doremi is now a teenager and Pop isn't quite yet. They often taunt and tease one-another, which tends to frustrate one another. However, Pop is not nearly as bratty as she once was.
Not too much of her personality has been revealed, though it was mentioned she was very excited to be entering a new school term.
Pop seems to look the same as she did as a little child, though her hair seems to have spread out to fit her newly aged body and shrunk somewhat. She was only shown in one image so far and wore a school uniform.
When they were little, Pop often followed Doremi around. The former didn't like her and tried to do many things to her which often ended with Pop crying. She was very curious and really did look up to Doremi then.
Because of Doremi's treatment of her, it may be the reason she grew up hateful towards Doremi.
She and Doremi bicker, argue, and fight over just about everything at first. They did develop a nice bond eventually.
At first, Pop assumed Doremi paid Hazuki to be her friend. Hazuki thinks Pop is a very mature young girl, and very cute.
Aiko likes to tease Doremi about how mature Pop is in comparison to herself.
Pop really likes Onpu and is most likely a fan of hers. Onpu hung out a few times with Pop during the first season.
Not much interaction has gone on between them other than when Momoko realized that Hana-chan and Pop switched bodies and began to panic when Pop (in Hana-chan's body) showed up.
She and Hana-chan are very close, though they both feel jealousy towards one-another for how their roles in life play out.
Much like Doremi, Pop's main feature in the first season was taken to the extreme. She is much more childish, snobby, and rude to everyone who isn't an adult while the original Pop didn't seem too rude to Hazuki or Aiko. She was also scolded some of the time for what she said, unlike Pop. She still liked Onpu/Ellie however, and her voice was much more high-pitched. Her name was changed to Caitlin Goodwyn.
