Although the animation style is quite different there's a bunch of similarities between these two: group of girls with super powers, one of them is the leader, there's a sentence they say everytime they transform and there's an object that gives them the power to do so, the leader is in love with someone who is also part of the good ones and helps in battles, enemies come from other planet oh and of course there's some cute being (an animal in sailor moon and a robot in tokyo mew mew) that helps them in theory but usually not in battle.
Main characters are girls. Morphing girls :D. They morph and get super powers and fight evil demons (in tmm they fight aliens, but when they take over an animal and transform isn't it the same?). They all fight with the power of Love.
Tokyo Mew Mew, or Mew Mew Power, and Sailor Moon have that same magical girl type thing, with a group of girls who transform and fight the evil aliens/people. They both deal with a cry-baby, yet strong, main protagonist and have all the same elements with the Sailor warriors in animal cosplay form.
Tokyo Mew Mew however is more focus more on the life of endangered animals rather than humans and their energys, but both have the same feel
Sailor Moon and Tokyo Mew Mew are both Shojo animes about cute teenage girls who gain magical powers to fight evil. They are so similar to each other, that if you liked one, I can pretty much guarantee you'll like the other. They both have five female leads, both have cute girls kicking ass, both have horrible English dubs, and they both have very similar protagonists. Ichigo Momomiya of TMM and Usagi Tsukino of SM are both sweet, bubbly, clumsy girls with huge hearts and great character development.
I think they're both great, but personally, I like Sailor Moon a bit more.
They are both really cool superhero manga's, and have pretty good art. Both of them can also be pretty funny at times as well as being really serious and sad.
Freddy likes how they, like all his fave animes often wear short skirts.
In both there are a group of five teenage girls with superpowers that fight evil.
In both they eventually have a character themed episode to help bring insight on each character. In both they have a bad guy that evenually turns good. The main character is in love with a boy. Both shows have good morals. Both shows have similar old looking animation and sometimes makes art mistakes.
Tokyo Mew Mew basically has the same plot as Sailor Moon. Five girls. They fight an evil organization that is a threat to the Earth. Romance. Slice of life. Comedy. The only difference is that the Mew Mews are animal girls, not sailors. But anyway, Sailor Moon fans will enjoy this childish version. It is also relatively short, 52 episodes. A good magical girl series for people who just started watching anime.
these two anime's are very similar. both have a group of girls who join together to keep the city safe from an evil force. Tokyo Mew Mew is a lot shorter in comparison though. But both are worth watching.
Like Sailor Moon, Pretear is about a normal everyday girl that gets to do extraordiary things to save those she loves. She fights the forces of evil to save her world, and does it with style of course. Like Sailor Moon, Pretear also has it's share of corny romance, funny name calling, nifty costumes, odd enemies.
Really the whole feel to it felt like some parts belong in Sailor Moon, especially the ending. The whole magical girl has to save the world from the big bad and everyone lending their help that happens a LOT in the Sailor Moon anime. Not only that, it does help that this is also a magical girl anime in a sense, with the main character wearing her color coded companions instead of fighting next to them.
Both series feature colorful animation, lovely music, and examplify the classic trimmings of the magical girl genre: flashy transformation sequences, pretty outfits, monsters-of-the-day, and an enchanting romance between the schoolgirl heroine and a gorgeous man.
Both feature magical girls, romance, saving the world, cute talking sidekicks, and some pretty awesome attacks. They also feature some pretty cool transformation sequences (more so the Sailor Moon transformations) and neat power-ups.
They both are similar themes and they're both about smart and elegant magical girls saving the world from villains. They are both sappy and airheaded crybabys and sometimes get nervous as they both try to get over it. They both have mild, helpful, funny animal-like apprentices to help them deal with battles and get over it to find new experiences and learn different things. They also both have child-like, kid-friendly romance between two different average-intelligence kids.
In both series there are a group of teenage girls fighting evil. You will soon see the similarities when you see Lucia Nanami in her Idol Form. In Sailor Moon they use elements and such to attack, but in Mermaid Melody they sing to defeat their enemies. I recommend both series. Just a warning if you enjoy the first series of Mermaid Melody, I do not recommend they 2nd series.
Both anime have senshi which make transformation, difrence is that in Mermaid Melody, a mermaids transform into humans to fight with songs.
Usagi Tsukino and Nanami Luchia looks very similar with their hairstyles.
Both are mahou shoujo anime centering around 14-16 year old girls, both leads have similar air-headed personalities, and both have similar episode formats and plots. If you like mahou shoujo, there's no reason not to give this a try. (^_^)b
Both have girl fighters on little skirts that destroy enemies on filler episodes over and over again with the same attacks. More credits to the originality of Sailormoon, since the clothing, character and situation analogy is posterior for Wedding Peach.
This is similar to Sailor Moon because not only was it made about the same time, it even uses some of the samd Japanese Voice Actors. But not because of that and not because it's a Magical Girl Story...it's just a nice storyline. Cute heroines and bad villians. Boys to fall in love with but have a mystery about them. It's just plain a fun story!
The two animes are closely similar in which you can obviously see in how they transform and such. The main lead in Wedding Peach is a little ignorant and rambunctious just like the lead in Sailor Moon. I would say the plot of the stories are very similar and the main difference would be instead of changing into wedding gowns the characters in Sailor Moon change into little sailor outfits hence the name :).
Jeanne was clearly inspired from Sailor Moon, but obviously couldn't reach its epicness.
Both are mahou shoujo anime in which the protagonist is the average air-headed schoolgirl... who is actually the reincarnation of someone, and who can tranform into a blonde heroine and fight against the evil.
Both of the male protagonists, at the beginning, always tease the girl, who, initially, hates him, but later on the two become a couple.
Also, Sailor Moon had an episode about possessed paintings (which is what Jeanne is about).
The main difference is that while in Sailor Moon the transformed version of Usagi is identical to her usual self, in Jeanne Maron changes completely. read more
They both have a magical girl with blond hair who fights against evil and both Usagi and Maron have a pure heart. Also, Maron and Usagi are supported by their true love. If you loved Sailor Moon, you will also love Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne.
Sailor Moon established the Magical Girl genre as it stands today, providing the archetypes that a show like Madoka Magica is manipulating. Both shows center around middle school girls who possess magical powers and use them to fight against evil, accompanied by cute animal guardians which guide their development as heroines. Sailor Moon establishes the storyline that you expect to see replicated in Madoka Magica. Both shows are cute in animation style, which contrasts with their surprising moments of darkness. The young girls in both shows prove to be less naive than they are portrayed, demonstrating acts of personal sacrifice and actively confronting ethical problems. If you are a fan of Sailor Moon, Madoka Magica is an interesting take on the magical girl archetype, and if you enjoyed Madoka Magica but have not watched Sailor Moon I would recommend it as an important predecessor. read more
If you're looking for another top notch magical series, then Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica is definitely the series for you! Be warned--it's much darker than Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon, but it still showcases what all magical girl series' have to offer: friendship!
Similar anime transformation sequences every time, ''fighting'' style is the same as well. i.e. they use cute stuff!!!
The story is simple and basic, both main lead characters have a guy they like, but cant do anything about it yet on the normal side, but more complicated on their ''powers side'', i.e. the reason they have to transform and fight! Both seem somewhat shy.
Each episode usually has ''enemy'' to defeat as well as story progress. i.e. not just bullshit fighting!
They are both about saving and protecting something using magicpowers. I personally think that it happens more in Shugo Chara than in Sailor Moon. Shugo chara is, compared, a newer version of sailor moon but ofc with a different story. They both have that bighearted and optimistic girl with the potential to save everyone. The art in shugo chara is much better than sailor moon, I think that the quality really variates between episodes.
Duh. Both show girls in a positive fashion, are animated by Toei, and have very similar plot designs (new villains replacing defated villains, cute mascots, learning the power of teamwork/friendship, etc.). If you like Pretty Cure, then there is no doubt that you'll like Sailor Moon.
Both have similar plot designs-- the girls must find and protect an object from evil forces to save the world, with the help of alien companions. Both shows have a strong emphasis on friendship, and both were animated but Toei Animation!
Both shows involve magical warriors, where Binan Love can be thought of as a magical boy parody of Sailor Moon. Both shows involve five high school students and an animal familiar (a cat in Sailor Moon and a wombat in Binan Love) to fight monsters using magical powers. The main difference aside from the gender of the magical warriors is that Binan Love is more of a comedy while Sailor Moon is more story-driven.
BOTH involve transformation schoolkids into superheros. Binan Koukou is very similar to Sailor Moon in a way but the fact that they are MALES dressed in feminine superhero clothing and defeating the enemies makes this anime series hilarious and entertaining.
-Are centered around the characters using magic / magical powers
-Have magical talking animals advising the characters
-Each episode is formated the same
-One show has female magical students and the other has male magical students
-One show knows that it is stereotypical and the other doesn't
-One tries to be serious and the other one has a lot of humor
They are both long and old series. Stories in them are different, but in both of them they are demons who are trying to hurt people. Both stories deal with magic. In both of them group of heroes fight for the sake of the peace. Both deals with the past connection of the pair of main heroes and heroines.
Kagome (Inuyasha) is pure-hearted just like Usagi (Sailor moon). They are both week and scared, but they always risk their lives trying to save their friends (sometimes even their enemies). Both heroines are connected with two lands at the same time. Both heroines are reincarnations of powerful and well-known in their world women. Their past-life-self died with their beloved and because of him. In both main heroine have a very carying mother. Both have a little brothers.
Kagome (InuYasha) remind me a little to Sailor Mars- Rei (Sailor moon). They are both with long dark hair and like to tease their friends. Rei is also a miko (shrine maiden) and Kagome is reincarnation of a priestess. They are both sensitive and look kind of similar with their red miko dress. Even Kagome's strange grandfather remind me of Rei's, 'cause they are both odd and with strange ideas whom sometimes made their granddaughters to suffer.
Kagome fights with uniform that reminds me of these of the sailor warriors.
In both some heroes/heroines has a crescent moon on their forehead. read more
- Similar story with lots of romance and adventures
- Similar character design
- The heroine is the reincarnation of the girl the main character loved before the beginning of the story
- The plot envolves gathering shrads of magic jewels that even look the same - The Silver crystal in Sailor Moon and the Shikon jewel in Inuyasha
At first glance, the two anime don't seem all that similar; but, hear me out. Fairy Tail is a good show for people who were fans of Sailor Moon as a child but have grown a little older.
Both are shows about teenage to young adult aged people who have some kind of power that enables them to fight evil. Both stories focus on the power of friendship. Both are light hearted with lovable characters.
They are a little different; but, if you enjoy one you might enjoy the other.
Similar magical girls fighting the bad guys...Similar focus on the main character and her love interest...sailor moon has a lot more to it tho along with a lot more seasons. More drama, but no singing.
Devil Hunter Yohko is the rated R version of Sailormoon. Same silly dialogue, with dramatic battles against cliche monsters all the while seeking to preserve the heroins love interests. Only difference is that Sailor Moon wasn't constantly trying to get laid or brutally decapitating monsters.
Sailor Moon and Devil Hunter Yohko are magical girl anime about girls who are just trying to pursue romance (although Yohko is mostly focused on getting laid), until they find out they're supposed to save the world by transforming into a magical girl and fighting demons!
I'm actually quite surprised that Sailor Moon isn't already on Princess Tutu's recommendation list (and vice versa). Ahiru and Usagi are very similar to each other. Both of these girls are pretty clumsy and make some rather strange mistakes, and both find themselves falling for a boy. Both must work to get their love's memories back, and they transform into magical girls to fight and save the day while somehow balancing schoolwork and social lives on top of that.
Even though they're both a group of transforming magical girls, they're actually very different.
Ojamajo Doremi has a younger cast and a more simple plot, but that doesn't mean it's inferior. It has some very touching moments, humor, and gives off a very genuine feel.
Sailor Moon has a teenage cast which means (of course) more drama! Sailor Moon is more action-orientated and has a romantic subplot.
Both are classics.
Usagi from Sailor Moon and Doremi from Ojamajo Doremi can be compared. They're both clumsy, bun-headed airheads who try their best even though they both fall down a lot. (...literally.)
There's a boy who teases them, classes they fail, and on top of that they also have an important job as a magical girl!
Doremi and Usagi both have hearts of gold under it all. read more
When I saw the first episode of Smile Precure i thought: this reminds me of Sailor Moon
-Mahou Shoujo Anime
-Miyuki and Usagi are normal 14 year old girl who find a magical pet who tranform her in a magical girl
-Miyuki and Usagi have to find the other magical girls for save the world
-There are five girls with the same colors (Miyuki-Usagi, Ami-Reika, Rei-Akane, Makoto-Nao, Minako-Yaoi)
-Both pink girl wear their hair in buns.
-Both green girl are the tallest and wear a ponytail.
-Both from Toei Animation
They are with no doubt alike, bote have transformation girls that never give up and are always together also Misty Knight-sama from Twin Angel and Tuxedo Mask from Sailor Moon are almost alike, if you like one you also might like the other
Both shows have a female protagonist who matures throughout the series. Though Utena matures quicker and less obivously than Usagi. Depending on whether you watch dub or sub there are sexual inneuendos in both series and implied lesbianism. They are both considered to be of the shojo genre. My friends and i both consider these animes to be classics. The stock footage and repetive results can become tedious at times but the many comedic elements will keep you entertained.
Both series have a team of warriors wearing suitable battle attire. Though Saint Seiya is Shonen and Sailor Moon is Shojo, both series can be appreciated by both genders, as their story and setting, albeit different, have similarities: cosmo/galaxy setting, teamwork spirit, protecting the ones they care and love, fighting for a true cause (protecting the world, etc,), battle posing, unique attack moves for each character, and so on.
First Transformation, for Usagi and Ichigo and their friends. Main characters have their family, they didn't grow up somewhere or live alone. Bad guys attacks innocent people. World is just the city they live which they portect, and where bad guys come from. all these only if having action is not first priority.
Both series run on a mostly 'Villain of the Week' Format, but do take occasional breaks to have episodes focused more on characters.
Both series are firmly rooted in the use of spiritual/magical abilities, despite it taking place in the 'grounded and realistic' world of 1990's Japan.
Both series showcase the lead female usually sealing away or destroying the enemy of the week using a signature move.
Both series have a lead female who is often guarded by a lead male, however, their relationships are a bit on the...complicated side.
Both series rely on Slice of Life moments to help build up the friendships between the cast of females, however, Sailor Moon does this with the knowledge that these friends are also sisters-in-arms, while in Kyuuketsuhime Miyu, Miyu never actually fights alongside her friends.
Miyu and Sailor Moon both let you get very familiar and comfortable with the characters before, in the final handful of episodes, showcasing the backstory as to why they are fighting their enemy.
Lastly, both series are quite progressive for their time, though Sailor Moon went a little farther with it then Miyu. read more
As I was watching Happy Seven, I noticed a lot of similarities to Sailor Moon. Both are magical girl anime, with clumsy protagonists (Amano and Usagi) that look alike and fall for the main magical boy. There is a group of magical girls and a magical boy who are able to transform and fight demons that hurt people (the transformation scenes also look alike). Also, the shows can be episodic at times, but have an overarching story (Sailor Moon is a lot longer though). In Sailor Moon, Usagi gets her powers in the beginning and more Sailor scouts are added in as the series progresses, but in Happy Seven, the whole group has powers and then Amano's powers slowly awaken. If you like one then I think you will like the other! read more
Both series include scantily clothed women, a girl with long black hair who berates the main heroine, a dysfunctional family, a helper character that you wouldn't expect to talk, transformation sequences, a female antagonist that wants to destroy the world, and a main character with odd hair.
Cutie Honey F is sometimes considered a successor to Sailor Moon. They have very similar visual styles, and share an episodic structure where each episode the main character/s have to figure out how to defeat a new monster using their transformation abilities. Each main character also has a mysterious love interest who, at least in the beginning, periodically appears briefly and then leaves after a few words.
There are similar in the comedy, romance school life and after that fight with the evil for the justice. Also it is similar in the way that the damashinigami trying to get more people to the rin ne with the way that the villains of the sailor moon trying to get energy from the humans for their own purposes.
Panty and Stocking is a parody of the magical girl genre. Instead of naive princesses which transform with sparkles and lace, Panty and Stocking are two fallen angels whose transformation sequence is literally a strip tease. The writing is very crass, full of cussing and discussions about sex, and the artwork is bold and stylized. Panty and Stocking's parody of Magical Girl genre is similar to FLCL's parodying of the mech genre, and not suprisingly PS&G and FLCL come out of the same studio. While not everyone who enjoys Sailor Moon will find PS&G funny, if you are willing to laugh at yourself and the (often) ridiculous elements of magical girl shows, give it a watch. read more
These magical girl shows share a heavy focus on friendship and sisterhood along with some romance.
Finding the princess (who must also be a warrior) and protecting her are important in both; instances of time travel/alteration can be found in both.
Despite the gaudy outfits provided for the main heroines when they use their special powers, both Uta-Kata and Sailor Moon take a step down deeper into the more hidden realms of their gifts (or curses) side effects. Both Usagi of SM and Ichika of Uta-Kata are plagued by the darker side of their powers and end up being the focal point of the world either being saved or destroyed.
They're both similar in the sense that they are both constantly saved by someone in a mask that they create a bond with. The heroines are also similar because they always act cheery and are very energetic.
Yes, the same uninspired transforming footage used over and over again, a new baddie sent out by the evil empire each week to defeat with the trademark finishing move as well as an "alien" human from space living with a family on earth with no recollection of what happened before he/she came to earth.
Samurai Troopers is clearly the shounen version of Sailor Moon, as they go hand-in-hand for their story, characters, development, and overall style.
Both are classic, must watch, old school anime with an identical plot: group of 5 teenagers fights against the monsters of an evil empire that wants to conquer the Earth. The above said kids have magical super powers (related to virtues in Samurai Troopers & to planets in Sailor Moon) that make them transform respectively in armored samurai and sailor scouts (the transformation scenes are extremely similar). Both of the group leaders (Ryo/Usagi) even have a feline pet/helper (White Blaze/Luna).
Sailor Moon, being a shoujo, has plenty of romance, drama, comedy, and also a better character development, while Samurai Troopers is more focused on action. read more
Other magical girl series may have more similarities with Sailor Moon on the surface, but few have such a similar spirit as Nurse Angel Ririka SOS. Both series were made in the 1990s and have similarly simplistic cel animation -- if one appeals visually to you, the other certainly will as well. Each is aimed at young girls but still portrays emotion and character growth in more mature ways than one would first expect. Finally, each series features a team of villains who can, at times, be more entertaining that the heroes, with distinct personalities that set them apart not as villains, but as characters.
Ayashi no Ceres gave me the very same feeling that I first had when I first watched Sailor Moon many years ago. Both series had princess or "princess-like" outer-space beings that fell in love with men that helped them but had a past that men don't remember. Both stories touched my heart that I didn't think an anime couple could.
LSPR is supposed to be a SM parody, but trust me, SM is MUCH better (of course it doesn't have the hentai elements, but tha characters or much more fleshed, and a single episode of it is funnier).
But this only applies if you like magical girls, if you also like hentai, SM will dissappoint you.
What these series have in common is the modern day setting and element of transformation. The way the production of the Full Moon anime was done also feels like a throwback to what could easily be felt in the first Sailor Moon series. If you enjoyed one of them you should at least give the other a try.
Both have a blonde female main character who transforms into a superhero magical girl in order to fight the bad guys, both female main characters are very silly, goofy, and funny. Both animes also deal with romance, and they both aired in the 90's.
I feel both these shows are similar in the romance and comedic side. Blue seed is more serious than Sailor Moon, but the romance feels the same. Also the comedy reminded me a lot of Sailor Moon, though it's yet again slightly different. Definitely watch Sailor Moon and vice a versa for Blue Seed if you like the other.
