The two of these are very similar in terms of genre, plot and quality, but Binan Koukou is almost like a parody--it's very good for those with Sailor Moon nostalgia, or those who have fun laughing at typical magical girl tropes. In short, it's almost like a mix of Sailor Moon Crystal and Free!, and not to be taken seriously at all. Good downtime watch material.

Very similar in the aspect that both contain magical girls trying to save the world. Also similar as both have a romantic aspect thrown into the mix.. teenage high school girls thrown into a situation they at first don't want to be in/ are afraid of.

Both are animated by Toei, Princess Precure's animation is 100x better though. Both are colourful magical girl series with little filler (for a Precure season). Both heavily include princess elements. Transformations, villains, monsters and story.

Both are good magical girl stories where school girls transform into magical beings to fight the forces of evil and save the world. Where Sailor Moon is the classic magical girl series, Madoka Magica takes a different new approach. Both of these series are worth watching if you haven't already seen them.

Both are magical girl series involving transformations. Both Sailor Moon and Princess Tutu use love and justice to conquer their enemies, although instead of using violence Princess Tutu battles through dance. Both shows contain strong themes of friendship, and the main characters in both have a love interest. Both are suitable for younger audiences but still can be enjoyed by older anime fans.

*They both contain transformations *They both are trying to search for a certain item *They both meets friends and try to relate to each other *Romance is involved *Problems that must be fixed in their daily lives If you like Sailor moon crystal then you'll for sure love Shugo Chara!

Both center around a team of powerful fighters who have outer space origins, who's duty it is to defend Earth from enemies from outer space, and who also have to keep their identities a secret. Colorful characters, unlikely heroes, comedy, mystery of main character's origin (in Dragon Ball Super's case, the mystery was solved in prequels), talking animals, time travel, new enemies every arc, friendship & family, character transformations - Dragon Ball Z and Sailor Moon have more things in common that one might expect. Goku and Usagi are both simple minded, childlike protagonists with hearts of gold that attracts others to them. Crystal and Super  read more

A legendary shoujo anime, it has a similar animation style and overall similar feeling.

- transformations - fighting the "evil" - their loved one lives in an other "world" (girls are mermaids, and their boys are humans) - friendship and love is important 
report Recommended by Alex-chii
There are 5 characters in the main cast There are "enemies of the week" and one main enemy The main characters have "alter egos" with special powers necessary to defeat evil (Although, JoJo cast do not transform, but summon said egos) Both are old manga and old anime remade with sharp animation and bright colors. Also, note the 3d in both the openings. ps: Sailor Jupiter looks like Kakyoin, with wavy pink hair and green uniform.

A group of cute ordinary middle school students have their lives changed forever when they find out they must "transform" and fight evil to save the world.

Both are currently airing Mahou Shojo animation by Toei. While Sailor Moon Anime was hiatus for 17 years. Precure has slowly filled that gap till Crystal came. Both have similar themes as well. While Precure has always change their themes in it's new entry. Sailor Moon has stuck to it's own throughout. While some may argue that Sailor Moon is much more mature than Precure, especially how this Crystal s now following the more darker content of the manga series. Precure can be pretty dark at times. And it seems by the look of things at Happiness Charge, we'll be getting there pretty shortly. So if you want more Mahou  read more
