Sailor Moon

Life can be tough when you're a teenager. Enter Tsukino Usagi, an average, if somewhat clumsy, junior high student whose voracious appetite for sweets and capacity for tears are offset by her enthusiasm for life. Her normal existence is suddenly turned upside down when a talking cat named Luna comes into her life. Suddenly, Usagi finds herself with the ability to transform into the superhero known as Sailor Moon. Fighting the occasional monster may be the least of her worries, though...

Both anime's are about girls transforming into "superhero's" and defeating evil "monsters" while working with everyday life and relationships

Both series are not only magical girl, but also follow a very similar "monster of the week" formula with stories that focus on similar themes such as friendship between the heroines, middle school romance, and dreams of the future.

Obviously, the main connection between TMM and Pretty Cure is that they are both of the magical girl genre, but there are many more similarities between these two anime. The character development is very similar in both, and the action scenes take on very similar layouts. The plot of both shows is also similar in that both teams of protagonists are attempting to stop an outside influence from destroying and/or taking over the world.

The storyline is similiar, fighting aliens to save the world.

the humour used is also very similiar :)

Another strange man named Limone intervenes, giving Momoko a magical item known as the 'Saint Miroir'. Using this, Momoko is granted the power to transform into the angel of love - Wedding Peach! With Pluie and his minions attempting to destroy all the love in the world, Momoko frequently has to call upon her powers to save the day. Suddenly, her life isn't so normal anymore!

Both animes are about female fighters fighting for justice. Although the picture is quite different, it has similar contents: transformation (make up), special items (cards, wedding jewel), theme (love and justice), secial power, etc. If you liked one, you will probably like the other.

Anime about girls with magical powers are a dime a dozen, but every so often one comes along with a bit more dynamism and charm than usual. This is true for both Sugar Sugar Rune and Pretty Cure, two eminently watchable anime series that deal with two very similar pairs of friends, consisting of one sporty and extrovert girl (Chocolat and Nagisa, respectively) and one shy and bookish girl (Vanilla and Honoka, respectively).

In both anime, the friends are tested and their friendship defined and strengthened by the tests -- and beyond showing their deepening ties, the story also shows the individual ability of the girls to grow to meet their challenges.

Nohansen Nohansen says...

Angelic Layer and Pretty Cure are spins on two anime genres: namely "collectible fighting monsters" and "magical girls". Both series may seem typical on the surface but in actuality are non-standard examples of their genres, especially when it comes to action sequences. Battles in Pretty Cure and Angelic Layer are physically punishing as the heroines engage their opponents in hand-to-hand combat, rather than rely on special attacks or mystical artifacts like in other shows.

Both series are aimed at young audiences but neither is pandering or condescending, so older viewers can enjoy them as well.
