Storyline

Arisa is fascinated by humans. So much so that she leaves the magic world. But the broom she uses is faulty and she winds up in Japan. There she meets Joji Matsui who works at an advertising agency. Joji has been assigned by his boss Ichio Suzuki the difficult task of winning over Shiori Nomo who is in charge of corporate communications at a client. However, a little word from Arisa helps Joji win over Shiori and his agency gets the opportunity to pitch. Arisa and Joji fall in love and marry. Arisa swears never to use magic again as she and Joji begin their strange witch/human married life. However, Arisa's mother, Daria wants to take Arisa back to her world and uses magic to be a nuisance to the new couple. Arisa has to take care of Joji's boss Suzuki who drops in all the time, the prying eyes of their neighbors and the interference of her witch mother.

Stick With The Original

Despite the presence of Ryoko Yonekura in the role as Arisa (Samantha), this is a fairly labored remake of what was a classic American sitcom. The problem is the episodes are 45 minutes long, when this kind of TV show is best suited for one half hour. Also, its not much of a comedy, its more like a drama full of very shrill people. Taizo Harada, who plays Arisa's husband Joji (Darren) is not very effective. You don't feel much chemistry between him and Ms. Yonejura. You have the Mrs. Kravitz character (not bad, but also too shrill) and Arisa's mom (Mari Natsuki), who is way too mean spirited. I know Agnes Moorehead's character was also, but Samantha stood up to her more. In this series, she wreaks havoc on their lives without abatement, mostly Joji at work. A very good concept in theory, not that good in practice. Its a shame, since there is some talent here and it is mostly wasted.
