Transformation sequences, glittery battles, and an all-girl team of superheroes. Heck, even one of the MM:PPP villians looks strinkingly similar to Queen Beryl from Sailor Moon.

It's pretty much the same. Romance, Magical Girls and comedy. Tokyo Mew Mew is turning into cats (or other animals) and Mermaid Melody is turning into mermaids. They're REALLY like. I had to think of Tokyo Mew Mew when I was watching Mermaid Melody. Only difference is probably that they're singing in MM.

I think the art looks the same. The voice from Luchia reminds me of Mitsuki and both animes have singing main characters altough the plot is different. They also have the same amount of episodes. They gave me the same feeling and I enjoyed those two animes. I'm sure you will like this anime if you've watched this.

Beautiful girls who come from the sea... while Mermaid Melody is about mermaids, singing and shoujo-romance, Umi Monogatari isn't quite so child-orientated and is rather relaxed in its pacing etc. 
report Recommended by Kuromii
They are both romantic, magical, inspirational, and nice anime. They are both transforming! Shugo Chara- transforming with their Charas! While Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch- is transforming with their Pendant Pearls! It's a little bit confused...but this two Anime were Super Dooper Pretty!!! Very Inspiration!!! In the End, both are happy, peaceful life now! Have two Seasons! Well, I give this Anime a perfect 10!!! Mermaids Or Guardians has always the same!!!

1: They both have the tranforming girl(s) 2: There is romance 3: In Mermaid Melody, If a mermaide tells a human that they are a mermaid, they turn into bubbles. In Princess Tutu, If Ahiru tells Mytho that she likes him, she will turn into light. 4: The art was similar

Very cute moe and loli girls who often become temporary special princesses and sing songs, in order to cheer up people's hearts.

In addition to both shows featuring singing/dancing as prominent plot points, the main three girls give off a similar "feel". The casts of both are also really charismatic - while the plot in both shows isn't great, it's fun just to hang out with these girls and see the scrapes they get into. Recommended for anybody who wants a sweet, simple good time, though Mermaid Melody has far more romantic/ecchi overtones.

They're a bit like the same. But I just love them both. Some reality and a little fantasy and that's what you need to get an perfect anime :D

They have similar feels, and the characters are generally all idols.  
report Recommended by SeerofWords
They're both about a love that can't happen but yet its still very cute. Both are funny, shocking at some points, inspiring, and brings joy to the inner child in everyone.

The similarities of these 2 animes are they have music,in Mermaid Melody they gonna save the sea from the sea demons while in K-on they have to save there club from being disband....Yui and Luchia are likely the same beacuse they are both clumsy...and the musics of K-on is very awesome and there last music Graduation Is Not The End makes me cry....that song is for Azu-Nyan....

All-girl team of superheroes, similar battle style and scenes.  
report Recommended by Valexine
- 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
Gives off the same feeling: Friendship; a hot guy the main character likes; magic; love and magic...great anime 
report Recommended by FallenNathaniel
Both are magical girl shows that have a similar target audience. It's a little less romance heavy but it does have some romantic elements in a few episodes. PPGZ is primarily just a fun magical girl show and if you liked Mermaid Melody, I think you'll like Powerpuff Girls Z too!

These aren't your average girls. They come from the ocean but it isn't long before they are idol-like figures in the world. Both have young teen girls who are trying to find their way. Both have great/catchy music and an interesting plot-line. Also, the girls are all idols essentially just in this show. If you liked this anime, exspecially the music, I highly recommend this to be something to test the waters on.

*The girl Nina from Mamotte Lollipop looks like Lucia (when not a mermaid). *The art is the same *Both have: Adventure, Comedy, Romance, Shoujo *PG Children  
report Recommended by 4EvaAnimeFanGirl
Filled with magical girls. There's just one different - these girls are mermaids! Singing melodies and fighting bad guys, they almost seem different from Sailor Moon and the scouts, but like Usagi, Lucia is deeply in love with Kaito. But if she reveals her true identity - that she's a mermaid - she'll turn into foam! Really, Kaito and Lucia are both much more than they seem and even have a few more things in common with Momoru and Usagi than most expect.

This anime is similar to this one in that it is a Magical girl anime. With girls that transform to fight against evil and save their world and protect the ones that they love.

Both of this series has a girl that likes a boy. But they dont know if their crush like them back!! I think if you like this anime you'll like the other one! 
report Recommended by cuteypie1985
Both Mermaid Melody and Jewelpet Tinkle involve girls using magic and transforming into cute dresses and overcoming trials of their own lives. The characters involved are mainly pre-teens/young teens. The main three girls all have the same color codes during transformation of pink, aqua, and green. Also the three female leads have the same personalities.

Mermaid Melody has a main theme of romance centering around the two main characters and also their friend's romances as well. Actually the only huge difference is that Lov*Com has no mermaids(thank god cuz what would that be like). Luchia and Risa both go through the many troubles of confessing and they both have certain reasons that complicate it even more. Oh and of course since its a rom-com there's a whole lot of good comedy in M.M.P.P.P. And plus, Mermaid Melody's got a second season. ^ ^

Both sing to fight the enemy. The difference is that mermaid melody is more childish that senki. 
report Recommended by minimiau
In both series a heroine of a non-human species travels to Japan to look for a certain thing she lacks. She meets a human named Kaito. Both series have an element of love complicated by the heroine's secret identity. They both have sad moments as well as cheerful ones. While Ano Natsu de Matteru revolves around film making, Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch takes on music as its main focus.
