Save the Baby

Saturday, September 29th, 2007

After following Akatsuki into a forest, Doremi finds she’s lost sight of him. Oyajiide appears to kidnap the infant Hana again. He’s sure he’ll succeed this time, as the now-transformed witch Doremitchi is alone, but she calls her friends and they use their new phones to combine their Magical Stage.

This scene takes place in Ojamajo Doremi ♯, episode 25. On the Taiwan box set release, it’s roughly 1:52:30 into the DVD.

Help in the Wind

In The Karate Kid II‘s storm scene, the word tasukete (the imperitive form of tasukeru, and meaning “save me” or “help me”) comes up multiple times. The first is about 01:33:30 into the film with the older woman and her children. The second is at roughly 01:35:50, with the young girl at the bell tower.
