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...
The legendary warrior, Cure Moonlight, was defeated and it's up to shy Tsubomi and fashion-obsessed Erika to step up and become the next Precure team.

They want to help their friends and the quickly-wilting Great Heart Tree by collecting Heart Seeds, but can they prevail given they are the weakest Precure in history?!
Both have formulaic episodes that contribute to the overarching story line, and both animes have a wellspring of backstory that you can delve into if you like. Both are traditional Magical Girl animes, complete with costume change sequences and fun attack names.
Sailor Moon definitely focuses more on romance than Heartcatch Pretty Cure! while Heartcatch... has more intense fights and much more updated art and animation.
If you like one, give the other a shot. Chances are you'll enjoy it!
Sailor Moon is the queen of all magical girl shows, but Heartcatch is a pretty worthy sucessor. Both are cute and fun action-based romps about a team of middle school girls with secret magical powers and obscenely long transformation sequences.
Nanoha used to be a normal grade school student until one day she found a ferret in the woods -- but he's no ordinary ferret! His name is Yuuno, he hails from another world, and he needs Nanoha’s help to complete his mission: to capture the Jewel Seeds (mysterious stones that imbue their wielder with great power) that fell to Earth. Along with Yuuno, Nanoha must now collect the Seeds and protect her world, but she isn’t alone. A rival is also trying to collect the Seeds for an unknown purpose, and only Nanoha has the power to stop her…
Following in the old 'magical girl' theme, Nanoha is perfect. The storyline in Nanoha is well written and has a lot more feeling when you compare it to Sailor Moon.
It's well worth watching, the transformation sequence is similar to Sailor Moon (Japanese Cut) too.
Both Sailor Moon and Nanoha are magical girl series. Both of these series follow the young girls as they discover their power. adjust to a new - and more dangerous - life and begin their quests. While Sailor Moon has a more comedic and monster-of-the-week feel to it, and the two protagoists have completely different personalities, if you liked one, it's worth trying the other.

Now, if you reverese that you get Negima! a Boy with newfound magical powers to fend off dilemas while also dealign with the multiple girls around him and His new life as a School teacher. If you liked Negima! or Sailor Moon, Then you will like the other one too.
In both anime what you get is quite normal high school life led by people with magical powers, that were hidden just until recently. Love affair involved and quite the same sense of humour. The main characters of these series have the same even the same haircut! Shortly - if you liked one, you will surely not be disappointed in another.
In a world where magic is a reality, the young Louise is at the bottom of her class. Dubbed "Zero" by her classmates at Tristein Academy (due to her zero success rate for magic), Louise (along with all first year students) was charged with summoning a familiar; and instead of a cute magical creature, the familiar arrived in the form of... Saito Hiraga, a normal Japanese boy who was abruptly teleported from his own world?! Can both Louise and Saito come to terms with their new and complicated "relationship" and (more importantly) help Saito find a way home?
Both Sailor Moon and Zero no Tsukaima are shows that rely on magic, and the main characters are both clumsy, awkward girls (who often get things right) who are forced to try to become a hero, in some way. The male leads are also strong, and rather helpful throughout both series. Although they don't have a lot more in common, other than good humour and fun, you may just like one, if you enjoyed the other.
So here we come - cute high school girl and her friends having magical powers, lots of troubles and... boy for whom everyone seems to fall for. This is what you can expect from both series along with many funny situations and childish behaviour.
