Synopsis:

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...

Tokyo Mew Mew

Tokyo Mew Mew

Momomiya Ichigo was a normal girl, worried mostly about her crush, Aoyama Masaya. However, just as she was finally able to date him, she was struck by a mysterious beam and everything changed. She is now part of the Mew Project, genetically fused with an endangered species of cat. With her new powers and companions, she must protect the earth from invading aliens.

5 girls in short skirts fighting Aliens, 5 girls fighting agasint Aliens.... Hmmm, sound alike? It gets better! As the enemy is about to do some serious harm, these loving animals raise up and give a 20-30 seconds speech before killing the enemy's butt. The main character Ichigo's weapon transforms about 3 or 4 times much like Sailor Moon. Ichigo also has a love interest much like Serena. Mint is much like Rei etc.
NekoRocket
Another magical girl 5-team, Sailor Moon follows the same sort of plot as Tokyo Mew Mew, but with a less eco-conscious theme. Often thought of as the 'original' magical girl team, Sailor Moon was very popular and often mimicked.
MechaTama31
It galls me to recommend Sailor Moon at all, but it would be ridiculous to ignore the obvious similarities between the shows, with young girls, magical transformations, cheesy battles and cheesy humor (not that I don't like cheesy humor... ^_^), etc.
yasmina

Both Sailor Moon and Tokyo Mew Mew center around a young girl who, one day, discovers that it's up to her to save the world. Tokyo Mew Mew and Sailor Moon are both very similar, in the way that they have to fight and save their loved ones from worldwide destruction.

Himitsu

This is an obvious recommendation. I think that anyone that watches Tokyo Mew Mew will immediately think of Sailor Moon (I say this, because Sailor Moon came first). You will certainly like one if you like the other though. Sailor Moon and Tokyo Mew Mew both involve a clumsy, somewhat dim-witted main character that discovers powers to fight evil. The main theme of "love conquers all!" is here, and things turn somewhat corny; you also have the henshin element - even the five soldiers!

EternalSnow

Sailor Moon and Mew Mew Power are very similar in the whole outline of the show. In both series the girls are "chosen" one by one, both have those cheesy transformation intros (you have to know what I mean). Both main girls are hopelessly in love, and both of their loves have a special little secret of their own (although neither of them really know it). Also, both of the men in each series help the girls in battling the evil villains... you get where I am going with this, I hope! Same stories, different characters; both are great. ^.^

Canal

When I started watching Tokyo Mew Mew I got reminded of Sailor Moon. They're both magical girl anime where the 5 heroines have to protect the world from the bad guys. They also have a monster of the week formula and the main bad guy always gets away at the end of the episode.

tuff2baunicorn

Fans of magical girl shows will probably be overjoyed to watch both Sailor Moon and Tokyo Mew Mew. Both shows focus on ordinary girls recieving extrodinary powers, giving them the ability to transform into super heroes and defend the earth from aliens. Both shows balance saving the world with balancing your love life, friendships and school. Each series is upbeat and colorful, and the characters are cute and distinctive!

Ran

Tokyo Mew Mew is a condensed version of Sailor Moon. It has the same characters, a five member team where each member has an associated color and weapon, attack,and transformation. Everything sounds so alike it could be called plagiarism. The enemies in both series are similar: the main bad guy is in love with the main magical girl who is saved at the last second by a bishonen fighting for his beloved one. The advantage of Tokyo mew mew is that Bunny becomes an annoying crybaby over time, while Mew Ichigo is clumsy but turns into a responsible fighter after a short while.

Hachiko

Both series are about girls who have become superheroes. They learn how to use their powers and learn to get along together.

Shenice10

I do think that Tokyo Mew Mew and Sailor Moon are pretty much the same, same plot anyways. They both transform, and the leader only has the power to defeat the demon/being and the others just weaken it, theres also a male with a confusing past and conflict with his powers. The only difference it the transformation Sailor Moon and Sailor Scouts have the powers of the planets, and Tokyo Mew Mew have the powers of animals. A_A

chii

One special girl with 4 of her friends are given magical powers to vanquish evil. If you liked one you'll like the other.

DevilsCandy

I know it seems really frilly, but once you get passed that it's actually a good show. It's pretty much like Sailor Moon..only without the ultra cute talking cats,and instead of planets, it's animals. The odd thing I found...was the food tie in. The main character Ichigo is basically a strawberry cat, each character has an animal and a food. Different concept..just give it a shot.

Shoutai

Both from the magical girl genre, they're both really easy to get into. Even though the episodes can get a bit repetativ, they're both worth checking out.

dokurochan

In both shows 5 girls get the power to transform into superheroes so that they can fight aliens from another planet.

Aburi

Tokyo Mew Mew and sailor moon are the definitive sailor soldier anime. They have near identicial plots, themes, characters and cutscenes.

The differences are that Mew Mew is much much shorter, and I think a little sweeter. Sailor moon is a good bit deeper despite it's grade school feel.

wolfangel87

Sailor Moon and Tokyo Mew Mew are magical girl animes.  They each have underlying elemental themes and transformations that the heroine and her friends make.  A mysterious figure that continues to help the main character also appears in each to give her strength and courage to continue on her way.  Both are about saving the planet from an evil organization that is trying to corrupt it.  The characters each have parallels within them making the animes very similar to each other.

iKaity

Both animes are centered on a girl who one day finds out that the fate of the world rests in her hands. With the help of their friends they come to save the day!

If you like one, you'll like the other :)

Garylikesmanga

Romance is an underlying theme of both series. Both series are team based. The teams are made up of girls with mostly element based powers and they fight the monster of the week each episode. Both series have similar characters. Usagi and Ichigo are the lead characters. Both are lovestruck, and considerably ditzy. Mamoru and Masaya are the romantic interests of the main girls. Both are mysterious, brooding, and share a similar role. Ami is similar to Lettuce, the brainy, slightly reserved member of the team. Both share powers related to water. Rei and Mint are both externally abrasive, especially toward the lead character. Makoto and Pudding are comedic and athletic. Minako and Zakuro are both famous before joining their respective team. Both hide what they feel on the inside.

Xplayer

Five man band? Check. Episodic attempts to save the world? Check. Over the top transformation sequences? Check. Both these series have everything one expects from a typical magical girl anime series.

XmInGxFoReVeRxDx

In both of these animes, they both are a group of ordinary girls who later find out that they have magical powers that must save mankind. In each episode, the evil villain has some scheme they try to use while these magical transforms and ruin their plans at the end. They almost have the same story but different characters.

tissil1

Both have love triangles, Social conflics, Science behind eachothers powers , and mild tragedy. Love them Both!!!

Cardcaptor Sakura

Cardcaptor Sakura

Sakura Kinomoto never imagined that by opening a book in her father's library, she'd be responsible for releasing wild magic into the world, yet that's exactly what she did. Too powerful to be let loose on the world, the magical Clow cards were sealed away long ago by their creator, Clow Reed. But all is not lost, for the guardian beast, Keroberos, was sealed along with the cards! Can Sakura, with the help of Keroberos, retrieve the cards before they wreak havoc on the town?

Of course this is a good follow up to Sailor Moon. Every genre treatment by Clamp rocks. Trust me, Clamp never fails.
miaka
If you did like Sailor Moon then you should like Card Captor Sakura. both series is about a girl that lives her ordinary life, when suddenly it seem that she is not that ordinary. they have a destiny to fullfill. they travel with friends that they meet along the way to gather different objects (cards in Card Captor Sakura and cristals in Sailor Moon) while fighting the evil.
clem
Card Captor Sakura and Sailor Moon are so similar it's scary. Much of the animation resemble each other, and the stories are basically the same - girl's identity as superhero is hidden, and at night battles atrocious villains. These two are a definite pair!
icyglaze
Card Captor Sakura and Sailormoon are similar in a way that both animes focus on an ordinary girl by day and an extraordinary saviour by night. The main characters fight to destroy evil and to save the world they love. Also, both animes have a cute little animal as a guardian. Although Card Captor Sakura does not have the love theme present throughout the entire series like Sailormoon does, these two animes are quite interesting and have a lot in common.
shalist
They're both stories about a 'ordinary everyday girl' who suddenly ain't so ordinary. Join them as they progress through their respective adventures gathering interesting companions, new skills and tricks, and confidence along the way.
LLORAtheLLAMA

Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor Sakura have the magical girls a lot of people love. With so many episodes, you grow with the characters and understand how they feel. You see that those girls are pretty much like us and are trying to get along with others and reach their goals. Either catching Clow Cards or going against the Dark Kingdom, they're out there helping those in trouble.

LizzyFizzy

If you liked Sailor Moon, you'd love Cardcaptor Sakura. Why? Because they are similar in many ways. =) Both are about an ordinary girl who becomes something extraordinary and fights evil powers. Both have romance and the main characters are similar: they are funny, simple-minded, brave and... well they both have a great appetite! XD I myself wondered for a long time what to watch after I was done with all episodes of Sailor Moon.  Someone suggested Cardcaptor to me and I watched all 70 episodes including the 2 movies. I practically loved it! ^^ Hope you find this useful.

caitlin

Sailor Moon and Card Captor Sakura are both magical girl type shows, with occasionally clumsy female leads (Usagi more so than Sakura), strong, supporting male leads, and good, cute humour to boot. If you liked one, I'm sure you will like the other.

styln

Both Sailor Moon and Card Captor Sakura deal with a regular girl who gains magical powers and then has to deal with her daily life while fighting evil. Both girls have cute little guardians and have many of the same personality traits.

Nomadichu

I think that eveyone who has seen either one of these series will absolutely love the other, they both have magic, love, and cute outfits! not to mention saving the world from the bad guys.

jurexplay

Two magical girls shows. Although some say that CCS is a rip off Sailor Moon I think it has it's own magic. I enjoyed both series very much and don't have any complains about any kind of rip off. Really if you are into Magical girl shows then both are excellent choice.

RapidYaoiOtaku27

Usagi and Sakura are two girls thrown into the world we know as Magicial Girls in a whirl wind of Clow Cards and Magicial talking cats with Henshin broaches.

Sakura like Usagi has trouble being on time for school, she has boy probs, a brothersome older brother, and a whole mess of magic she never knew she had! Suddenly she's appointed a Clow Card Captor. She has to catch and seal all clow cards that have escaped.

Having already loved Usagi and her crazy antics you'll love Card Captor Sakura!

iluvanime

Both series are about a girl who is living a simple, ordinary life when they encounter a "magic". Both include romance and a talking animal that supports and gives advice to the main character (Luna in Sailor Moon and Kero in Card Captor Sakura). If you liked Sailor Moon you'll enjoy Card Captor Sakura as well.

Shoutai

Both are great starter animes for any person just getting into the fandom. Both being from the magical girl genre, they sort of have the same feel and elements. Even though they don't have the same underlying story, they're both extremely cute.

Kari5

Young girls suddenly given magical powers and must save the world...describes what these shows are about! Magical transformations, attacks, and battles every episode! And of course, romance! These shows are great for those who love magical girl shows!

keyzti

Both these animes revolve around the magical girl concept. There is love, drama and the transformations. Have you not already seen these animes in you’re childhood you should see them now! If you liked one, you would definitely like the other!

iKaity

Another anime pair with a girl who has the fate of the world in her hands. Both animes have the magical girl transformations and everything. Not to mention romance.

If you like one, you'll like the other :)

Noria

Both of them are about an ordinary girl and how its lifes changes when they meet a starnge creature which reveals to them that they have special powers and they have a mission to fullfill. Also,  they are both  girly anime.

Trinityx94

I watched both these shows when I was a kid. They were brilliant. Though Sailor Moon is more for girls and Cardcaptor Sakura is possible for a mixture of genders - they are similar and someone who liked one would like the other in my opinion. However beware the dubbed version of Card Captor Sakura. Well... don't beware it. If you're looking for more romance in an anime, watch the Japanese version with English subs. But if romance isn't really your cup of tea, I suggest watching the dubbed version of Card Captor Sakura. Though both are loveable in their own way :)

thesonicfan21

Card Captor Sakura is very much related to Sailor Moon. They both have appretices that help them on their missions to defeat enemies. As they are both underappreciated cowards, they get smarter and more confident as they collect things to help them on their missions. Yet, they're both very young girls who are both crybabies and they learn the slice of life. They are also both very long series.

hakura123

They are alike both in the magical girl genre they both came out around the same time, oh and they have pretty costumes XD

pikachu203

They're both similar magical girl stories, and Usagi and Sakura are similar characters.  They're both 'contracted' by cat-like creatures to be magical girls...  The similarities go on and on.

Wedding Peach

Wedding Peach

Hanasaki Momoko is a seemingly normal school girl; she enjoys taking photographs, trying on wedding dresses, and having fun with her friends Yuri and Hinagiku (despite the fact that all three have a crush on the same boy!) But one day, Momoko and her friends are attacked by a mysterious man called Pluie who attempts to steal Momoko's ring, a gift from her mother. 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!

ultrafoo

Both Sailor Moon and Wedding Peach have a group of school girls fighting evil. Most of the time is spent fighting, but they also have some romance in the show to lighten the mood. Everyone I know who likes one likes the other as well.

suse

both series are about a group of girls trying to stop the forcess of darkness *backround ohhhhh* Also the main charictors are trying to steal the heart of the guy they like *sob* so touching

chii

It's scary how these 2 are SO alike. With magical powers, going to school, and trying to get that special guy to notice them. These girls must vanquish the evil that threatens their everyday way of life that they love so much. If you liked one you'll deffinitally like the other

kenshina

Both animes are about female fighters fighting for justice. The way of transforming (make up), the characters' personaily, theme (love and justice), big eyed female characters' figure, actions, and so on are very similar. If you liked one, you will definetly like the other.

ohtoriakio

Of all the shows that have been influenced by Sailor Moon, Wedding Peach is the one that follows the themes of friendships, starcrossed lovers and reincarnation the closest. Wedding Peach does find its feet later on in the series though, although the structure is highly similar. Fans of one should enjoy the other, for they share many more similarities along the way that I don't want to spoil.

autumnsong

Sailor Moon and Wedding Peach are so alike, it's scary. Same concepts of friendship, a cute little animal to help guide them along away, and of course the main girl comes to love the boy that calls them names and fight with.

 

serenitii

Sailor Moon and Wedding peach are about as generic as magical girl anime gets, meaning if you like one, you'll probably like the other. They're similar in a variety of ways, but not so much that the other will bore you. Both animes revolve around a girl who was once an ordinary high school student but is suddenly transformed into a superhero forced to ward of evil. Sailor Moon and Wedding Peach episodes follow a sort of formula. Girls start their day, expecting it to be normal expecting to do normal things. Bad guys show up, girls transform and defeat said evil, aaand the day is saved. The animation styles are also strikingly similar, probably because they were produced around the same time.Anyway, yes. If you're a fan of Sailor Moon or Wedding Peach, please, do yourself a favour and check out the other! 

erikakurumi

Because they both have lovely opening themes, also beautiful heroines, simply amazing attack sequences and cool villans.

Magic Knight Rayearth

Magic Knight Rayearth

MKR is a Clamp anime about three girls who are taken from Tokyo during a school field trip, and transported into a fantasy world. Hikaru Shidou, Umi Ryuzaaki, and Fuu Hououji must fight a slew of enemies, overcome trials and tribulations, and face their inner demons to save Cephiro, a wonderfully detailed world, from a dastardly evil and powerful Priest, Zagato.

If you like Sailoor Moon then you must see Magic Knight Rayearth. they both have girls that figt for justice and meets the love of there life. they progress their magics and fighting style while they are traveling together. Magic Knigt Rayearth is played in fantasy wold, while Sailor Moon is palyed in Tokyo.
kamirura
Fighting girls with magical powers! That describes it all. But to make it a good recommendation I guess you wanna know more ^^ Magic Knight Rayearth is really close to Sailor moon though I think MKR contains much more magic than Sailor Moon and SM is not as serious as MKR. MKR got alot more fighting and not this boring "Crystal Moon Power" sreaming every second. I think you really should check it out if you liked Sailor Moon.
NekoRocket
As girls destined to fight discover a purpose to their conflict, determination and resolution are formed. This is the premise shared by Sailormoon and Magic Knight Rayearth -- self discovery while fighting the baddy of the day. Both of these series are classics in their own right, and should be enjoyed by anyone who likes magical girl series or just plain good anime.
LLORAtheLLAMA

Both have magical girl teams that are fighting for a purpose they believe in. The characters in Magic Knight Rayearth don't transform as they do in Sailor Moon, but if you like magical girl anime, Magic Knight Rayearth and Sailor Moon are good ones. Though, Magic Knight Rayearth is a little more serious than Sailor Moon. Go check out their adventure to bring peace!

fizrox

The idea of fighting girls using magical powers is mainly what those two series have in common. Apart from that, there is also this thing with hair color connected with battle style and love plot involved.

Shoutai

Both are great starter animes for any person just getting into the fandom. Both being from the magical girl genre, they sort of have the same feel and elements and somewhat similar story lines ("fight to save the princess").

DuskFey

The hyperactive chibi antics in Magic Knight Rayearth reminded me a lot of Sailor Moon's reactions to things. Both of them grow tougher over time, but neither team of girls is ready for their powers at first. It's kind of funny watching these girls who are supposed to be heroes flailing about, but don't forget that they can kick some serious monster butt! ;)

Shugo Chara!

Shugo Chara!

Hinamori Amu is a stylish punk rock girl who is liked and feared by her peers, but there's just one problem: she's actually a shy and quiet girl who can't seem to drop her self-fabricated facade! But when Amu finds three eggs in her bed, she had no idea her life would change forever. Out of the eggs pop Ran, Miki and Su, Amu's Guardian Charas; these being represent parts of Amu that she wishes she could be, even allowing Amu to transform into those parts at will! Now, with pressure from the other Guardians (including her crush, Hotori) to join their midst, dark sides of the psyche known as X Eggs to seal, and nefarious forces after a wish-granting egg known as the embryo, Amu's life has officially become more complicated!

Both are about love, the discovery of true potential, the protection of loved ones and their dreams. Never forget justice and the fight against evil. If you loved Sailor Moon, You are sure to like Shugo Chara!

FrankeeGee

Both feature magical girls aspiring to be true to themselves. Young women who sometimes feel inadequate transform into strong beautiful and special people. Part of elit groups who defeat perversions and free people from manipulation they tak edown the bad guys and look cute doing it. If you like Sailor Moon you have to watch Shugo Chara!

Trinityx94

I remember watching Sailor Moon when I was a kid. The transformatoins, daily monsters, luming threat, talking cats, tinge of romance, constant comedy and search for companions, continously gripped me in - and I loved it. When I watched Shugo Chara, I couldn't help but think that it reminded me of a more modern, slightly less complicated, more loveable and suited for a larger age range version of Sailor Moon. So yeah, I recommend these shows both ways.

Tanum

The similarities between the two series are really sticking: from transformation, to "posetion" and even hidden evil, they brig a sense of familiarity.

If i were to choose between the two of them, i would pick bouth.

thesonicfan21

They both have a similar theme. About kids finding stuff to help their way in attacking enemies. But Shugo Chara! is different, a girl finds egg shells and in Sailor Moon, a different girl tries to find crystals.

jypsyjulia

Sailor Moon and Shugo Chara! are so similar, it is nearly insane: there is the concept of purifying a person's soul (in Shugo Chara! it's eggs, in Sailor Moon it's hearts), it is the constant battle of good versus evil, the magical girl concept, etc. If you liked one, you're guaranteed to love the other.

pikachu203

Both are great magical girl anime, and I would highly recommend both to fans of the genre.  The protaganists are somewhat similar in nature, as are various things that are a staple of most magical girl series with familiars and transformations.  Both stories have certain ammounts of romance involved, though it doesn't serve to completely ruin the story.  Altogether both are good watches.  If you liked one, you'd like the other.
