Ok I might seem like I overated this. But this manga turned into a great comic book later on in Italy and a great series as well. I love the characters in it. And for any that loves Magical girl will like this alot.

I personally thought the manga (since got cancelled) wasn't much but the show and comic itself. I think more anime magical girl watchers should know of it. It's such a unknown underated show that never got much promo in the USA. Even though of it's creative story-line.

Meanwhile the manga never got to be an anime in Japan. A T.V. series read more

Manga: Wedding Peach
Both are having students that transform into magical girls, but Wedding Peach has more comedy and the main element of the manga is love, unlike W.I.T.C.H.

Similarties are plenty, except in TMM they are animals and in W.I.T.C.H. they are pixie-like. Both transform and fight evil from another world, except in different ways. W.I.T.C.H. without the leader none of the girls could fight. Though they still retain a few powers untransformed. Both also have it's share of comedy and romance.

Both are magical girl, both with one leader of 4 girls. Except SM is a ditz crybaby, and Will is a stubborn shy tomboy.
