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...

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!


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!


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

Guided by a star only they can see, a group of maidens known as HiMEs have begun to gather at Fuuka Academy. These young women have been endowed with dangerous supernatural powers that they can use to their heart's content, but there's a price: to wield them, they must put their most important thing on the line. Now, in the midst of school work and friendships, they find themselves caught in the midst of strange conspiracies seemingly related to the terrifying monsters that attack them. Is the power of the HiMEs strong enough to save themselves and the ones they love?

You like romance and action? Then both series is the right for you. Mai-Hime is more for older people as Sailor Moon but both series has nearly the same story. Girls fighting with magical power to save the earth. Mai-Hime has more action as Sailor Moon and a darker plot but you will like both of them.
So you like young girls with magical powers? And you like a back love story and mysterious plot? Then both these series are for you. Since they are very similar in category and theme, be sure that if you watch one, you try the other!

If you love romantic stories with a group of girls fighting with magical powers, both the Sailor Moon series and My-Hime are the shows for you. Both series are filled with action packed drama and fighting scenes in which the girls have to test their strengths and personal bonds to help everyone around them.


Girls with magical powers running about saving the world you kind of thing? If that's the case then you'd enjoy both of these series. Both anime include heroines battling for the side of good. With the perfect hint of comedy, loveable characters, and amazing plots you're bound to fall in love with these series.


My-Hime is the more grown-up, less repetitive cousin of Sailor Moon. Both series focus on a group of beautiful young girls with extraordinary hidden talents, fighting against dark forces. My-Hime has just as much drama, romance, mystery, and comic relief as Sailor Moon, with just enough more action to keep it all going. If you are a big Sailor Moon fan, you will find yourself quickly enveloped in this series.


I would suggest this if you like salor moon because Mai at the beinging doesn't really know her power and but like Serna / Usagi with her friends she figures it out , though i can't say to much about the love i mean it's not like sailor moon there it's mostly fighting and her best friends...but otherwise this would be a AMAZING anime if you like some kind of fighting action but also cute scences

Sailormoon and Fushigi Yuugi both follow the actions of a likeable, mildly gluttonous young heroine as she is faced with a destiny she can't escape. With love, death, and magic galore, each series is an emotional ride you won't forget.

Both Sailor Moon and Fushigi Yugi have the same kind of elemental/spiritual power associated with each of them. There seems to be a deeper meaning behind the series as well as an association with higher beings. The main heroines in the series are very strong willed and fight for what they believe in, although both heroines also have a whiny side to their character.


Love is one special emotion. These 2 female leads will do anything for the ones they love. Especially for the man of their dreams. If you liked one you'll like the other.


Friendship and hardship were never better portrayed than in these two animes, as well as sense of duty and courage. The protagonists of them, Miaka as well as Usagi resemble in a lot of ways, starting with the fact that they both simply love to eat and are both day-dreamers and ending with the inspiration and courage they give to the people around them. They experience love and pain while on their way to save the world they're in, with the help of true friends. FY and SM show amazing stories which will simply enlighten your heart.



Awayuki Himeno is a normal schoolgirl who is in a bind: her father’s remarriage yielded two new cruel stepsisters, and to top it off, she meets seven men who call themselves Liefe Knights. They reveal to her that she's a Pretear, someone who can lend powers to them when their powers aren’t enough to defeat the evil creatures called mayouchuu. Now, she has to fight the ambitious Fenrir, whose only purpose is to leech the life force from all living beings. Can Himeno save the world and find a way to deal with her growing feelings for one of the Liefe Knights?

Pretear and Sailor Moon are about girls transforming to fight evil. The difference is in Pretear we got one girl surrounded by a few male super heroes together fighting evil while in Sailor Moon we got lots of girls fighting along side one male hero. Magic is used in both when fighting evil, and in both the characters have regular school lives outside of fighting the evil trying to take over the world. If you like the fighting evil and want to watch it repetively than go for Sailor Moon, with the reverse being true for Pretear with a short and sweet story.

To me i think Sailor Moon and Pretear are exactly the same, with a couple of gender changes. Of course there are some differences with SM having female partners and PT having male and they don't fuse together. But they both transform and it has the same love vib too. To me Pretear is just a shorter versian of Sailor Moon. :-)


Both these shows are about girls that transform and have to fight evil beings. In both of these you understand why the evil person became that way and feel sorry for them. Both these shows have some romance and inner stugules inside the main girls.


If you want an anime that contains magic powers, love, friendship, good vs evil fights Pretear and Sailor Moon (all SM series) are both what you've been looking for. Personally , I simply love SM because it was my very first anime and at first I couldn't find anything that would suit me, but after I saw Pretear I was completely satisfied with it. You can say that Pretear is a shortened version of Sailor Moon, despite the fact that the subject is different. All that matters is the way they treat the subject .

Puni Puni Poemy

Puni Puni Poemy

Puni Puni Poemi is a spin-off of Excel Saga, the classic lampoon of all that is anime. It takes the daughter of two Excel Saga characters and puts her through parodies of shoujo, shounen, ecchi, hentai, and everything in-between. This eccentric show is the "Scary Movie" of anime: younger viewers need not apply.

Well, only if you liked Excel Saga, but a magical girl parody non the less... warning, not for kids
This is in large part a spoof of Sailor Moon, though somewhat more adult. It has a somewhat wierd style of humor that you'll either love, or hate, but if you liked the Sailor Moon, you'll likely enjoy this spoof.
Both series have the fameous "Magical Girl" theme. though there is alot more humor in Puni Puni Poemi as in Sailor Moon. In addition to that: Puni Puni Poemi is much more fast paced and less serious than Sailor Moon. If you like more magical girls and a more serious plot, check out Sailor Moon. If you like more humor and a more fast paced story, you might like Puni Puni Poemi

A very adult knock off of sailor moon, puni puni poemy pokes fun at every aspect of it. If you liked one you'll like the other.
