Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon, Shugo Chara! Recommendations
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!
Well like the person said before me they have similar character transformations and sort of the same atmosphere with love and comedy.
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.
-Preteen girls get magical powers.
-Group of friends with similar powers but not as strong as MC.
-Saving the world.
Both are magic-girl animes. Both main characters have low self esteem.
