They have VERY similar storyline and are both of the Magical Girl type of anime. They both have interesting romance plots. You can't help but like both of them if you liked the other.

Both are about a sixteen year old girl who transforms and has the power of the elements. It's magical!

Sailor Moon have to find crystals and Cardcaptor Sakura have to find cards :) Romance - Cheack! Comedy - Check! It's very good i promise :)

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.

Both are about a young girl encountering a familiar(animal) who introduce them to magical powers. in the Magical Girl genre. Even though Madoka Magica is a little darker, but its just as great.

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

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.

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 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  read more

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.

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.

They are in middle school and they are superheroes they tranform although there's a little more romance in Sailor Moon odds are you'll like them both 
report Recommended by NewAnimeFan
These 2 shows have a MC who is blonde, blue-eyed, idiotic, lazy and have a big appetite, as well as fighting to protect others. Usagi is basically Naruto if he was a magical girl. The shows also have a black haired rival (with fire powers) to the MC and an annoying pink haired girl. While not as action packed as Naruto, Sailor Moon has quite a few action scenes. Sailor Moon and Naruto are both well known long running anime. They are also good gateway shows for not just non- anime fans, but also younger audiences as well.

A team of magical girls band together to fight off evil villains and the monsters they create / summon. Both shows are for a young female audience.

25TH anniv. for showing the best of the girls v.s best of the boys, both shows still holding up today in my opinion. 
report Recommended by Shura-shurato
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.

Serena and the school girls both have similar magical powers and have to deal with it.

Both series are about a girl who gets magical powers, both have talking cats, and both contain romance.

Similarities: Both have talking cats, transformation sequences, and main characters who eat a lot (Usagi and Natsu). *both main characters are blondes (Usagi and Lucy) Differences: Sailor Moon is more marketed for girls while Fairy Tail is more for boys.

What can I say? The original mahou shoujo anime. Transformations. Love. Action. It's got it all. (:

Both stories revolve around a group of girls with magical powers on they're journey to save the world. I could also say that MKR is CLAMP's version of Sailor Moon :), and not a bad one at all.

Both are anime with magical girls, fighting the evil. Both are part of love in a less and in one more.

A wide, strong, and interesting female cast, fantasy, magic, romance, fights, shoujo-ai, roses, bishounen. They have an overall similar mood, prettiness, and imagery. Note: I’m referring to all the Sailor Moon seasons altogether.

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.

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 are about magical girls fighting monsters -Both are very girly (To an extant) -Both have transformation sequences -Both have a talking sidekick in SM it is a cat in CY it is a robot

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.

It is similar to Sailor Moon in many way they transform and fight monsters that are made by other monster pretty much the same so if you like Sailor Moon you would like this show 
report Recommended by redgurl719
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. 
report Recommended by AliceMercy
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.

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,  read more

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.

both cute magical anime. both have princesses. both have a team of main characters. body are adorably cute magical anime, you will love. Oh and they both have a mysterious prince that saves them.

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  read more

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.

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.  
report Recommended by cereuno
Alright, this kind of HAS to be here. The format of the show is not that much similar, however, the background stories of the main characters and the underlying theme of meeting in another life, not to mention the whole Princess plot and various kingdoms in different dimensions/on different planets, gives me a very similar vibe.

usagi and the anime version of maria are similar in a few odd ways -the anime version of maria looks kinda like a short haired young adult rendition of Usagi (the looks are mostly in their face and hair color) -both maria and usagi fall for an older guy ... maria and captain .. usagi and tuxedo mask (obvious love knows no age boundaries type of romance) -maria and usagi are both a real burden for almost every superior they face -they both are super cute -they both are klutzes and make similar mistakes, the difference though  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.

These two have similar main characters. Go! Princess Precure features a young girl named Haruka Haruno who is very clumsy and also finds out she has magical powers that can fight those who try to cage up the dreams of others. This is similar to Sailor Moon's main character, Usagi, who is very clumsy also and finds out she has magical powers that can fight evil. The two shows feature crime fighting, girl power, and magic.

Sailor Moon and Star Twinkle PreCure are two magical girl TV shows that follow a female protagonist who gains magical powers after meeting a cute magical creature. Both shows are also themed around space, with each of the main magical girls having names themed around planets, stars, and other heavenly bodies found in space.

the only reasons i would be insane enough to compare this is, in both vampire hunter d and sailor moon star main girls who have long blonde hair tied in two sections blonde hair blue eyed chick sporting a short skirt of some sort....and also the presence of monsters and demons are seen and both are old school... make no mistake about it the themes and plot are different... there aint much to compare. its just that usagi and doris have long blonde hair blue eyes and some short skirted outfit.  read more

-Both involve girls transforming magical girls that could defeat all evil -Same studio (Toei Animation)  
report Recommended by Miki_04
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,  read more

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.

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,  read more

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.

GaoGaiGar is pretty much Sailor Moon with mecha. 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.

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.

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.
