- "Ojamajo Pop, coming right up!"
- ―Pop Harukaze
Pop Harukaze (春風ぽっぷ Harukaze Poppu) is Doremi's little sister and the fourth witch apprentice to join the group. She initially had a bitter relationship with Doremi stemming from years of sibling jealousy from both parties.

Pop often observes Doremi and makes fun of her lack of success, sure she would be destined to fail because of her clumsiness and poor lack of focus. Pop is admired by peers and older figures due to her responsible nature.
Pop resembles Doremi, having the same skin tone and eyes but with a red hue. Her dark pink hair sticks up in the shape of wings on top of her head, and she has short puffed segments at the bottom of her head. Her bangs resemble Doremi's but stick up.
Originally, she wore her pale pink school uniform and raspberry skirt, paired with pale pink socks and cyan flats with a purple sphere on each one. In class, she wore a gold pin on the collar of her shirt.
After leaving kindergarten in Motto, Pop began to wear a new outfit. It consists of her old skirt and socks, adding a cyan and white blouse with a string ribbon at the neck, and a pair of matching colored velcro shoes.
At first, Pop came off as the annoying, know-it-all who was condescending and outright spiteful towards Doremi. She did nothing but criticize her and mock her failures, but she actually has a lot in common with her. Like Doremi she does poorly with crafting, expressing the same hostile anger, and acting like her when she has a new crush. Her initial hatred towards her sister seems to be from her feelings of envy, believing she gets more freedom than she deserves and feeling as though she isn't as loved as Doremi was growing up.
To everyone who isn't Doremi she appears to be an adorable and smart child with a responsible head on her shoulders. She comes off as perfect and very lucky, and always give more than 100% when she does things, be it a chore or learning new things. She can easily sway people with a little charisma when necessary.
However, it's also obvious that Pop is still a child, and they worry over her when she tries to do new things or something someone her age might not be ready for. This limits her capabilities, namely due to having an early curfew and bedtime or being stopped from joining the others. She is a child at heart but she is also highly dependable, even if she can be a little grouchy or stern.
Over time, Pop began to show her nicer side as she started to get along with Doremi, and she began to enjoy her childhood more and stop taking everything so seriously. Her similarities with Doremi became more apparent.
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, then she was given Majorika back after she annoyed the girls.
But one day, while having a tea party with Plush-chan, she witnessed her get up and run to the Maho-do. Shocked by this, Pop ran after her just in time to see Doremi and the others return from their long battle with Majoruka. Majorika saw no choice but to make her an Apprentice as well (episode 25)
As a witch, Pop seemed much more competent then Doremi. But like her, 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 is the red apprentice and her fairy is Fafa. Her crystal ball is a red clover.

As a baby, Pop admired Doremi and looked up to her, so she often followed her around to be with her. However, Doremi was jealous of Pop and didn't like to be around her, so she often caused Pop to cry. Eventually, this has resulted in Pop's disdain towards her, which worsened after their mom refused to teach Pop how to play the piano.
She and Doremi bicker, argue and fight over just about everything at first, but deep down they adore each other. Eventually, they reconcile and become much closer, showing how alike they actually are.
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 admires Aiko and thanks her for being Doremi's friend.
Pop really likes Onpu and is most likely a fan of hers like Doremi. They even hung out a few times together.
Not much interaction has gone on between them, but she did give Pop some cooking/baking tips and advice and likes seeing her help out in the shop.
She and Hana-chan are very close due to their younger ages. In Motto, Pop was extremely willing to play with Hana most of the time at the Maho-Dou. In Dokkan, Pop sometimes got annoyed by Hana's progress as an Apprentice. However, they were willing to help each other. In Naisho, they were revealed to be envious of each other for the things the other has.
Much like Doremi, Pop's main feature in the first season was taken to the extreme. She was renamed Caitlin Goodwyn and is shown to act childish, snobby, and rude to everyone who isn't an adult. However, unlike in the original, she is scolded sometimes.
