Ojamajo Doremi 16
A guilty Doremi tries to help Hazuki with her problem after realizing she has been oblivious to it. But will the girls find themselves involved in something more dangerous?
At the time Doremi is feeling remorse due to some problems related to Hazuki. They had began a few days after seeing Onpu when they returned from Wakkanai and she feels bad for not having noticed something was wrong. So she explains to the Readers what happened.
Doremi starts off by commenting on how lately she finds herself with a busier life in comparison to her childhood. She had noticed when the cherry blossoms began to fall, but she couldn't remember what flowers had began to bloom around her house. She got used to doing her school work, as well as working at the Maho-do again but because she's focused on her own problems she feels as if she simply started to focus less on everything else. Aiko is convinced that it's always been like this though, and Doremi even points out that she had the intention of slowing down to become a calm girl once she entered high school.
About a week ago when Hazuki came to the Maho-do, Aiko had noticed that she seemed off and asks if maybe it had to do with a test. To which Doremi complains because of the tests and exams they have been given lately, despite having just finished taking hard entrance exams. Doremi had not paid much attention to the other two while they discussed how difficult the beginning of the school year was so far, but Aiko claims it's only because they're freshman this year. Hazuki then silences the top by apologizing for not showing up so often.
Due to the rain the shop hadn't got any customers that day, much to Doremi's annoyance. Since Hazuki and Aiko were both given a break from their lessons and training, the trio decided to just meet up at the Maho-do for some girl time by making tea and cookies. They also turned off a couple of the shops lights before they began having personal talk, and in this time Majorika convinced Hazuki to reveal the truth.
Doremi momentarily breaks the story to reveal that her pov from the beginning of this chapter comes from this very moment before she resumes. She was practically screaming because of her poor treatment regarding Hazuki's feelings, because she didn't notice it.
Hazuki explains that she noticed some peaks and looks being thrown at her, but she didn't know why it was since they would look away the moment she'd spot them doing it. She tried to ask, but they never answered her. Aiko and Lala both comment on this before it's explained that Hazuki had been the target of an Ura Site that chose Karen Girls' Academy to harass. But they had hoped that because of Hazuki's gentle and sweet and reserved nature nobody would believe these rumors. Unfortunately they were wrong.
Doremi comments on how Ura Sites often lie and people tend to just write on them to vent their own frustration and problems, but Majorika calls it out as bullying and critisizes it, though the girls can tell she is much more concerned than she is letting on. Doremi then thinks about the times she skipped school for personal reasons, such as not wanting to study, sleeping in because she stayed up too late, or because she had to run marathons during PE and didn't want to. She feels bad for being so greedy and worries that she may be too easygoing, however she has no interest in Ura Sites so even if Misora had one, she wouldn't be a part of it .
However, Doremi also noticed that she isn't as self-aware over feelings like she used to be. Now if she sees someone looking sad she just assumes it is for the same reason as she herself had; being tired. She had no idea her best friend was affected in such lengths.
She takes a moment to openly claim to hate herself, much to her friends confusion. She explains to them why she feels this way before Hazuki apologizes since she was sure the ordeal would blow over. She didn't expect it to wind out of control, but Doremi and Aiko convince her she has nothing to feel bad about after she starts to cry. Aiko then tells her to just come to them if a crisis was to occur, because even if they attend different schools it doesn't mean they can't still help.
As the day grew on and two hours passed, Majorika suggests to the girls that they head back to their homes, stopping as she thought she saw someone approach. However, after she opens the door nobody is seen. Doremi suddenly claims to be hungry and this cheers Hazuki up. The girls share a laugh at Doremi's expense before they clean up and thank Majorika and Lala. Then they leave and head for home.
While everyone hoped the rumors and slander would fade, it never did. In fact more bad things were being posted each day.
Doremi asks Hazuki if she has any allies at the Karen Girls Academy and she discusses her friend, a girl named Riko Mukai. She was the one to show Hazuki the Ura Site to begin with and Doremi describes her as a frivolous girl who looks out for Hazuki and befriended her pretty quickly. Before splitting up, Doremi and Aiko ask Hazuki to introduce them to Mukai sometime and she agrees to it. Doremi also found out that Hazuki has many friends supporting her.
Besides Mukai, Doremi, and Aiko there is also Majorika, Lala, and even Tamaki. Doremi thinks the person who posted on that Ura Site probably doesn't have very many friends and may be jealous of Hazuki. But Doremi believes an open confrontation was the best answer, not this slander. Being a simple-minded girl this was the only conclusion she could reach; especially since she herself hosts some envy towards Hazuki, given her wealthy and talent. But she loves her family too, and Hazuki spent many years working hard for her talent. Subjects like English and Classics were just finally making sense to her, so while she may not know the best ways of doing things, she does realize she's learned so much over the years and met so many wonderful friends. She also realizes that had she voiced her jealousy about others, she feels she would be like this horrible person posting those mean things online.
With these in mind Hazuki tried to continue ignoring the stupid posts from the Ura Site and attend school as normal. But more and more students were beginning to bother her, causing her to receive much more unwanted attention. Everytime she came by the Maho-do, Hazuki was full of sighs and no answers. But suddenly Aiko gets a brilliant plan and they consult an expert, Onpu. The four girls chat about it and Aiko explains that Onpu was the best decision since she has experience. Onpu agrees and checks out the website before deciding to email Hazuki with some suitable way to deal with this.
In the mean time, Doremi suggests they use magic to make it go away but Hazuki wishes to solve this as much as she can on her own. She also is concerned that she may have deserved this so she wishes to learn more about how this began. Doremi and Aiko agree, though they warn her not to overdo it and Hazuki leaves for home.
However, an even worse crime occurred days after this. One day at the Maho-do the girls were greeted by a crying Hazuki who announces that she refuses to go to school anymore. They realize it has to do with the Ura Site and borrow a computer from Majorika to check it out. There they find a picture of Hazuki and Yada-Kun outside of a Love Hotel, which is quickly explained by Hazuki as nothing more than a chatting spot; as she had a lesson and he had to get some ingrediants for his part-time job. Aiko and Doremi do not believe what was wrote with the picture, but they see other posts verifying the event that took place in it. It is even pointed out that the original poster was trailing Hazuki and tried to speak to her.
The girls try to ask Hazuki if she is often out alone and she reminds them that Onpu told her to avoid being out of her home by herself since it would be harder to make those lies seem real. She also mentions that she had been with a few people as often as she could, including Doremi and Aiko on the days they were coming to the Maho-do.
At this point the girls start to worry that Hazuki has a stalker since they know her entire schedule and even about Yada, who she never told anyone besides her friends about. Aiko believes that the poster may even know the exact paths that Hazuki takes to get home from her lessons and so fourth, since they seem to be targeting her on the days she has part-time work and days off from lessons.
They take a moment before deciding a decoy may be in order to lure out the person causing the problems. While the situation is bad, Doremi comments that she is excited and they email Onpu tp inform her of the current goings-on. She is convinced that this may be a bad idea but it may also be for the best if they put an end to the Ura Site.
Two days later, some of Hazuki's classmates brought up a discussion while they had come by to visit the Maho-do. They were talking about summer plans for the upcoming vacation so Hazuki tried to play along by claiming she will be going to the beach with some friends, and maybe pay the mall near the train station a visit, to check out the swimsuits. Hazuki then sent Doremi an email and Doremi quickly spoke to Aiko about it. Aiko then tells Doremi to make Hazuki say something provocative to cause more rumors, though Doremi is confused since she thought bathing suits were provocative enough.
After school, Doremi and Hazuki met up and went to the Mall together. Aiko, being unknown by the students of the Karen Girls Academy decided to disguise herself and stood in a nearby corner to wait for someone suspicious. They also brought along Lala, disguised in her cat form. In order to look the part and blend in, Doremi and Hazuki discuss swimsuits while comparing and observing them in one of the shop. They notice many girls surrounding them but none of them are familiar, so in hopes of increasing the anti they decide to look over some sexier swimsuits. After a few minutes, they can hear the mobile phone camera's shutter snap and Aiko and Lala head for the sound.
Joined by Hazuki and Doremi they spot a girl up ahead and quickly try to reach her. None of them can recognize her and she is able to escape in the crowd. Lala believes this girl was about the same age as the girls are and considering her behavior, she was highly suspicious. Taking a chance Aiko manages to find the girl and latches onto her, but it turns out to be Tamaki and she was just dressed like the culprit. To see Tamaki in a boring outside surprises the girls, but they quickly apologize for their mistake before explaining the situation. Doremi is rather confused to know that Tamaki doesn't know much about it, but she claims this is just because she doesn't care for Ura Sites. Doremi points out that because the attacks are growing, they wanted to try to find the culprit today, which makes Tamaki critisize the person before leaving.
Doremi momentarily points out that she missed a chance to ask Tamaki why she dressed so weirdly, for someone like her, but feeling defeat she mentions that all they discovered was that a girl was the one doing this. Aiko also points out that this person probably works alone. So with no alternate choice they have to use magic.
The next morning they were able to discover the true culprit; but Hazuki refused to accept it. She had noticed Mukai had seemed to be sickly and ended up collasping. Hazuki brought her to the nurses office so that she could rest but while attending to her, Hazuki overheard her speak in her sleep. Unaware of Hazuki, Mukai continued to speak.
At the Maho-do, Hazuki had decided to take a break from her violin lessons and had been reduced to tears again. She couldn't bring herself to ask Mukai about what she heard, so Aiko and Doremi simply comfort her until they agree to visit Mukai together the following day, since they can't use magic to confirm it.
Doremi feels somewhat surprised, given that at one point Mukai was someone everyone suspected, though assumed they happened to be wrong and dropped it.
The following day Hazuki calls Mukai and asks to meet her in the Park nearby. Everyone sits down and waits for her to show, but after she did Aiko started to freak out and slipped into her kansai dialect. At first Mukai denied knowing anything, but Aiko points out that she was there two days ago when the girls were checking out swimsuits. After seeing Mukai's reaction Aiko demands to see her cellphone if she wishes to be proven innocent. She grabs the phone when Mukai refuses and finds the photographic proof that she is guilty.
Stealing her phone back, Mukai claims Hazuki deserves to suffer and doesn't even care that she did something terrible. Aiko and Doremi start to yell at her but Hazuki stops them to ask Mukai why she did this. For a moment Mukai seems to feel bad and explains that she knew it was wrong of her, but she couldn't stop herself. Since she was little Mukai wanted to be a violinist and planned to enter Karen Girls' Academy, but her dad's company went bankrupt and she was forced to attend Public Middle School instead. Her mother even took a few part-time jobs while Mukai was left to do housework. She was able to enter the Academy in High School due to the company being reestablished. But compared to her classmates her lack of skill is painfully obvious, since she missed at least three years worth of experience and lessons that everyone else did not.
It is said that Hazuki was only befriending Mukai out of genuine feelings, and everyone was aware of this, but she inadvertantly caused her to become jealous. The achievements of the top graduating student is discussed, as well as recognition that comes with it. But out of irritation and impatience at the thought of being left behind, Mukai soon began to think about harassing Hazuki. But she simply wrote the first post out of amusement, not malice. She hadn't personally targeted her friend until she got to know about her, and soon after it turned into personally backstabbing her. The spots began to get more specific in detail and while it eased her mind, she lost control.
Hazuki asks Mukai if she likes writing these posts, then mentions how different her violin playing has become. She also points out that she was never a rival or enemy of mukai, and by not enjoying her music she makes, she will just make everyone who cares about her sad. Mukai is able to realize what she did wrong and apologizes for being so envious and angry with Hazuki. She is forgiven and they decide to keep their friendship.
It's then Aiko points out the time and Doremi reminds them they will be working the next day. Hazuki agrees to stop by after her lessons and takes off, with Aiko suggesting that Mukai head home to avoid worrying her family. They also point out that while Mukai may think Hazuki only has good things happen to her, they are sure she could learn some surprising things if she takes the time to listen.
Doremi thinks about Hazuki and Mukai's friendship, realizing that Hazuki may have a hard time opening up to Mukai due to being so shy and overprotected to a restrictive state. She also points out that Yada-kun is still kind of cold, but it's either because he's known Hazuki for so many years or just because he's shy.
Meanwhile, Hazuki is a bit shocked by how Aiko and Doremi left. Though Mukai is happy to know how great of a friendship they have before Hazuki asks Mukai if she could address her personally by using her first name, Riko. Mukai agrees, then hesitates before addressing Hazuki by her first name as well.
Doremi admits she feels envious now, since Mukai gets to see the side of Hazuki that she doesn't. But she's happy by the outcome and hopes to befriend Mukai someday too.
The next day they had to go to work at the Maho-do. While waiting for Hazuki, Aiko and Doremi had decided to update Majorika and Lala to inform them of the news. Tamaki had informed Yada-kun regarding the Ura Site and in his panic he went to find Hazuki. They also noticed the posts were beginning to disappear, but a missunderstanding occured between Hazuki and Yada so they decided to spend a little time apart to avoid starting up the rumors. While Yada's concern was obvious, he just showed up too late.
Doremi is also upset since Yada hadn't noticed any problems at all and confronted him about it, but he instead told her about Tamaki's boyfriend and how she wasn't as selfish or petty she had been back when they were kids. While Doremi is happy, she's also angry to know Tamaki may become super popular if she keeps her positive behavior and improves even more. But she plans to make a lot of new friends and meet new people, since summer vacation is approaching.
But as she speaks, she indirectly ticks of Majorika.
Days later after the Hazuki rumors began to die down, Tamaki comes by the store. Doremi arrived late to work and asks to know about the visit. Majorika points out that Tamaki bought some cellphone straps. It's explained that while the Maho-do sells cute magical items, they also imported some magical items based on super popular human things right now. Doremi explains how cute the straps are but notices that Tamaki picks one with an Azure stone charm hanging from it.
For a moment, Doremi assumed a bunch of cellphone straps were bought but is informed that they didn't have anyone to replenish the stock yet. So Tamaki purchases two.
As evening is arriving, so does Aiko and Hazuki. Doremi notices the sunburn Aiko gained from her outdoor activities, while Hazuki ended her lesson early. She wastes no time telling them about Tamaki and Hazuki points out that she has been acting more grown up now. She had also tried to get Tamaki on her side when it came to the Ura Site, thought Tamaki claimed a lack of interest.
Suddenly, Aiko and Hazuki seem to have an idea as to why Tamaki is behaving strangely. Doremi agrees, only because she didn't want to be left out but she honestly had no clue what they spoke of. Majorika then joins them and together they claim she is probably in love, further supported by her flustered behavior when she entered the shop to buy something.
To Doremi this doesn't make sense though since she tends to by high quality or items of brand. She finds herself momentarily sidetracked and thinks about her misfortune she has had regarding love at the time. Aiko tries comforting her, since she didn't have a boyfriend either, and Hazuki points out that a lot of people are in the same boat as Doremi. But all of these thoughts are just making her impatient and she complains, though Aiko suggests she focus more on working at the Maho-do right now. Hazuki even points out she's been working really hard and sales are even increasing. But this doesn't cheer Doremi up.
Doremi breaks story again to ask the readers about POPs. Anyone whose worked at the supermart or convenience stores should know about them. She explains that the job isn't just tagging goods with price tags and arranging them, it's also about adding descriptions of the goods, using cards to stick them onto. That is called POPs.
A lot of customers usually like to read over the POPs before they make a purchase, which makes Doremi happy knowing they're having a pleasureable experience while at the shop.
A few days later Hazuki came to work brimming with energy. She approached Doremi to inform her that Tamaki has gotten a pet cat recently, while Aiko comes by with news that Tamaki's boyfriend is named Masamune. This causes Doremi to wonder if the boys parents happen to be history maniacs. Hazuki is quick to point however, that this is Tamaki's cats name, not the boyfriends. She also points out that the boy Tamaki is crushing on is a senior who attends the Misora Public School. Aiko goes on to say that she thought he already had a girlfriend and rejected Tamaki. But she keeps acting persistant and making moves on him. Hazuki even mentions that she's heard he's in a Host Club also, so he sometimes goes home with his customers.
They are interupted by Doremi, to ask them how they even found this information out. Hazuki reveals that she asked Kaori Shimakura, Tamaki's friend and right-hand girl since elementary school. But Doremi claims some of the news could be exaggerated since it came from her. Aiko then points out she heard it from a senior of a friend on track club who tutors Tamaki. With no real proof of anything Doremi decides to dismiss it and finds it hard to believe, given how boastful Tamaki normally is. If she had a boyfriend then she wouldn't waste any time and get right to spreading the news.
The girls then wonder if she only likes the guy for his looks, but they believe that because she is also cute and confident, she would probably make her move if she did like him. Hazuki interupts Doremi to point out that maybe it isn't a serious relationship since she hasn't said anything to them or anyone else, and this could also explain why she is behaving strangely. Aiko thinks that since she came in to purchase something then she probably hasn't confessed yet either.
While Doremi is a bit envious towards her old classmate, she would help out if Tamaki was ever really in trouble. Besides, she's very curious and she could use this to study the topic of love and maybe even help her own relationship she wishes to have. Aiko thinks it's best to just confront Tamaki on the subject and she asks Hazuki to go and talk to Tamaki about her boyfriend.
When Hazuki asked Tamaki about the boyfriend situation, Tamaki decided to tell her. She tells the girls that she learned he is a tall ninth grader who is suave and somewhat of a bad-boy type. The girls stopped their discussion to close the shop given the timing, then they gather at the table and continue. Apparently he's a boy named Kyouhei Tachibana, and he is someone both girls know, claiming that he creeps them out. Doremi believes that with his scary face he is very unapproachable. Hazuki continues on, saying that Masamune is the cat he gave to Tamaki. It was injured and she had been going between home and school to look after it. The cat is a russian blue who was born with only one working eye and often lost out on milk from it's mother, so it's pretty small and a little weak. It wouldn't last very long if it was thrown out into the wild. Kyouhei had really planned to keep it for himself until he found out his apartment didn't allow pets, so he had to take it to the park and would visit it regularly.
Then one evening Tamaki happened to see the cat being bullied by some rowdy children and saved it before bringing it to the nearby animal hospital. It turns out that the person who ran the Hospital was the original owner of Masamune, so when Kyohei heard the news he met Tamaki there. Doremi calls this to be a cliche moment and compares it to an old-school shoujo manga, which Aiko agrees with before Hazuki points out tthat most of the students at Karen Girls Academy were rich, so he probably wouldn't have gotten to know Tamaki elsewhere.
While the guy would have scared Doremi off, Aiko thinks it's like Tamaki to go after anything she wants, and she's never been afraid of anything either. Doremi wonders if maybe to Tamaki, this guy happens to seem like a true gentleman type, given the cat and all. She also realizes that they gossiped and judged him just from their first impressions, which isn't very nice, or good. Doremi then points out that even if they're not posting anything on a website, they really weren't any different then that Ura Site. Which makes them feel pretty bad.
Eventually Tamaki asks the Ojamajo to help her find out more about Kyouhei. They agreed out of curiousity, and also because she seemed greatly concerned and pointed out his rough attitude lately, along with his lack of interest in girls. While he would meet up with Tamaki from time to time, it was usually just regarding Masamune. Tamaki mentions to them that she usually sees him leaving a building near the train station at night and the ojamajo manage to find out it was a bar operated by a tenant. So it was kind of hard for the group to visit, as they're just young girls. But it turns out it isn't a Host Club after all.
The girls then tried to talk to Yada-kun since he works nearby. He is able to tell them more about Kyouhei, such as the fact he is a senior who is serious about his studies and isn't a delinquent at all. He's more of a lone-wolf type and usually appears hostile to others due to his face and tall body. If he got into fights then rumors wouldn't be very evident about him at all, so they're convinced Tamaki has nothing to worry about.
That day, the rainy season had become known to the girls. Hazuki began to imitate Tamaki while explaining her interest in Kyouhei to reveal more information. He lives with his mother and feels that in a way, he's a lot like Masamune and thinks the cat is very cute. Tamaki is happy and thinks it's nice to know that his personality isn't anything like his appearance. In a strange way it appeals to her maternal side. Aiko believes it's strange since Tamaki was never like this before, but she's in love now, even if it's still kind of weird. She wishes to date Kyouhei without the cat as an excuse, but they hardly get to meet up due to his work. He replies to her messages but changes the subject whenever she brings up dating, but she keeps being agressive so they hope it will work out. After all, she's the only one trying to connect with him without any sense of shy or bashful behavior, [lus she's always come off mature and gives off a reckless vibe.
After Hazuki mentions that lately he's been avoiding her, they wonder if maybe Tamaki was beginning to stalk Kyouhei. Though she's honestly just worried that she may be too much of a bother for him. Which could explain her strange clothing some weeks ago when they caught her at the mall. But Hazuki points out that Tamaki had been trying to find proof of an OL girlfriend, as rumors began spreading lately. Doremi believes that this OL girl might be real, since he treats Tamaki like a little sister rather then a girl he likes. But Aiko remains unconnvinced and thinks it's only a rumor, as they've heard.
The next day as the girls head to the Maho-do their cellphones began to ring. It is from Hazuki and Tamaki, and they ask for them to meet up with them outside of the Misora Public School. Upon arrival, a frustrated Tamaki asks them go inside and quickly get ahold of their teacher, Yamaki-sensei. While Aiko and Doremi don't understand, they go inside once Tamaki promises to explain everything to them afterwards. They rush into the staffroom and force their teacher outside while claiming they don't really know what is going on but its about Kyouhei and he realizes what may be wrong and agrees to come speak to the four girls.
Kyouhei has kept his promise of not associating with the gang he used to hang out with anymore. But when said gang found out about his relationship with Tamaki, along with her parents, they forbad Tamaki from seeing him. She tried to tell them this but it didn't work so she lied to get away from home and went to the Maho-do to speak to Hazuki. She was hoping to find Kyouhei after and discover what was finally going on, and because of the relationship between Kyouhei and Yamaki-sensei, they figured he would have some information.
Their friendship began when Kyouhei realized he had something in life he wanted to do and he decided to break away from his gang. So he discussed the issues with the teacher, who became his ally and helped him fully seperate from them. At this point Doremi points out that Yamaki-sensei deserves a lot more credit than she gives him, realizing that she once again judged him soley on looks.
After hearing some more, they managed to finally make sense of everything and decided to come with Yamaki and Tamaki to Kyouhei's apartment, though Yamaki-sensei advised them to head home. However the girls refused, deciding that if it got really bad that do have magic on their side.
Upon arrival they noticed a beautiful woman standing outside and realize it's Kyouhei's mother. She looks so young and model-like, that she'd easily be confused for an OL girl. Doremi compares her own mother to this woman before realizing that the rumors probably were about Kyouhei's mother, not a girlfriend. Tamaki introduces herself to the woman and explains what the problem was before the woman claims that Kyouhei told her that Tamaki was kidnapped by his gang. She was just about to go and find Kyouhei to find out what was going on. Before they can say anymore, another woman approaches, this one also appears to be an OL beauty type and she was riding a motorcycle. When Yamaki begins speaking to her, the girls are shocked to learn that this charisma model, Minako Yamaki is his wife.
Minako explains that she was going to go with her husband, rather then just let Kyouhei's mother go by herself. Tamaki feels bad that she was left behind and she insists the five of them try to catch up and they get into Mrs. Tachibana's car and head on over. While doing so the woman reveals that she is Minako's cousin. When they were younger, Minako was a charisma model while a student at Karen Girls' Academy, and Mrs. Tachibana was also a model at the time. Now as adults they are skilled beauticians, and since both of them would pick Kyouhei up that was how the rumors began to spread.
When the car arrived to the parking lot, the girls found Kyouhei, Yamaki-sensei and his wife facing off against a group of scary looking boys. While the girls wanted to stay in the car, Tamaki got out and talked down to the thugs before the other girls followed and got in front of Tamaki in hopes of protecting her. Kyouhei's mother comments on how happy she is knowing Tamaki has so many good friends, which makes Doremi happy to know that Mrs. Tachibana really likes Tamaki, as this is a good sign that she supports the relationship.
As the gang began to advance, Kyouhei was quick to push the girls behind him to keep them safe from harm. Yamaki-sensei begins to talk to Kyouhei until the gang begin to critisize him for associating with adults and the girls. But Doremi believes them to be the true cowards when suddenly, they watch as Yamaki's wife puts a biker gang coat on him. Aiko points out a whole bunch of patches embroided all over it and the gang members began to realize they may be messing with someone who could take them and they begin to back off. The group are in shock when Yamaki reveals himself to be the third generation leader of the Misora Bakuretsu Gang, Yamaki Rokurou.
Suddenly, much to everyones shock the gang backs down and they apologize before bowing down to Yamaki-sensei. Then they quickly disband and take off.
After such an ordeal, Doremi realizes just how bad it is to judge people based on rumors or their appearance. They no longer feared Kyouhei and also respected Yamaki-sensei and his wife.
Several days after that incident, Doremi, Hazuki, and Aiko gather at the Maho-do. As usual they finished their work and closed up shop to clean and stick on new price tags. While doing so, Doremi chooses to ask about Tamaki's relationship. It's revealed by Hazuki that Kyouhei is busy studying to become a vet and he's also busy with his part-time job so they haven't had much time to meet up, but Tamaki has started to reveal a lot of new things to Hazuki and she plans to persue him. She's also been studying really hard in hopes of joining him at the same university in hopes of keeping them together.
Doremi gives into her envious nature once again but the girls cheer her up by insisting she will meet someone right for her, someday. Doremi thinks about it and agrees, deciding she will definitely find herself a boyfriend come Summer.
- Doremi: Majorika has always been good at hiding her feelings.
- Hazuki: Doremi-chan, you never change.
- Aiko: Seems like Hazuki-chan is back to normal.
- Hazuki: That’s right. You’ll soon grow tired of me.
- Aiko: Exactly. Unlike Doremi-chan, there is not much to make fun of about Hazuki-chan, so my jokes just run out really quick.
- Doremi: Wha-… Ai-chan, that is so mean!
- Doremi: And I've pissed Majorika off again.
- An Ura Site is a Japanese form of online bullying where people anonymously hide their identities by sending hate mail using the return email addresses and names of other students who the target may know. They can also host offensive or rude photography that one may use in hopes of ruining others' reputation, as well as harming the schools reputation.
