Alyssa, a 200+-year-old witch who looks young, was in a forest until she found a baby in a basket named Viola. After 16 years of Alyssa raising Viola after adopting her, Viola is already a full-grown woman, but with the maturity of a 16-year-old. Of course, hilarity ensures as she looks after her adopted daughter.
Surprisingly, it’s a 2 episode premiere, pretty much serving the purpose of introducing the main cast. As expected, Alyssa, who looks like a young teenager, takes Viola in since she has much magical potential. Of course, raising her is a handful for Alyssa as Viola spontaneously uses her magic and has no control over it. Thankfully, Alyssa and her childhood friends help teach Viola how to use and control her magical powers.
As expected, Alyssa’s aunt, Lira, who runs a shop, nursed Viola as Alyssa couldn’t breastfeed. Of course, she consulted books and even tried to create breast milk with magic. As expected, Lira is a muscular and robust lady with an intimidating personality. It shows how much she roughs up her son for disobeying her and even eats raw flour from the bag. Still, Lira is a funny character. After all, Lira rips the reference books regarding nursing a child that Alyssa was consulting. Lyra thinks Alyssa doesn’t need them after she offered to help.
On the other hand, Viola is an enjoyable character. Of course, she is only interested in Alyssa, and she will do anything to not allow any love interest to win her mother’s help. I like how Viola gives a man attracted to her a mean stare as she rejects him while Alyssa is not at the table, which is funny.
Also, it’s funny to see her summon a phoenix, which looks very simplistic in design. While Alyssa wants Viola to summon a more appropriate familiar, I guess Viola is stuck with the Phoenix unless Alyssa wants her to summon one that can shoot beams and such. The thing I find interesting is that Alyssa never saw the need to have a familiar
In fact, the male characters get the short end of the stick. It’s not surprising, given that Viola won’t let any love interest ask herself or Alyssa out. This leads to a rivalry with an elf boy, Fennel, who is one of Alyssa’s friends. Viola has hated him since she met him at 7 years old.
Obviously, she doesn’t like anyone who might become a threat to taking Alyssa away. That is despite Alyssa not interested in dating anyone. Still, we have Viola bullying Fennel relentlessly. She also forces him to play a fishing game where he must fish for 3 eels to win a secret picture of Alyssa. The funny thing is that Viola rigged the game to humiliate Fennel. I admit that the end result is amusing.
Overall, the first two episodes of Dekoboko Majo no Oyako Jijou are funny. It will be interesting to see what comedy comes with Alyssa’s and Viola’s relationship receiving development. As expected, Alyssa has her hands full with Viola. Still, hopefully, it’s the start of an excellent mother-and-sister relationship that is not blood-related.
