Sailor Moon

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...

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.
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.

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!


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. ^.^


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.


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!


Tokyo Mew Mew is a condensed version of Sailor Moon. It has the same characters, a team with five members (each with a different color, weapon, and attack), and transformations; everything sounds so alike that it could be called plagiarism. The enemies are also similar: there's a baddie in love with the main magical girl, and a bishonen who fights for his loved one and saves her at the last second.

Sailor Moon is longer and therefore has more variety concerning the enemies, it shows the evolution of the characters over a longer period, and lets us see how they grow powerful and wiser as they age.


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


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


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.


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


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.


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.


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 :)


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.


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.


girly group charecters

fighting evil

looking out for friends/lovers

transforming into superhero


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.


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


Sailor moon and tokyo mew mew both involve 5 school girls fighting to protect the world from monsters. And the main characters both have a crush on a boy who helps them on their mission. The mew mews and the sailor scout both have people who help and guide them toward victory. Ichigo and Usagi will do everything in their power to safe the world and protect their friends.


They are very similar. However Sailor Moon is a lot longer and has more 'filler episodes'. I would reccomend watching Sailor Moon first.

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!

The first time I watched Shugo Chara! I immediately thought "Tokyo Mew Mew reccommendation!" The two shows are remarkably similar. The each show, the main characters both consist of average school-kids granted extroadinary abilities to fight some sort of evil. In Tokyo Mew Mew the heroine was programmed in her DNA as a certain animal and gained the ability to banish evil creatures. In Shugo Chara! the heroine prayed for her true character and got her heart's desire in powerful, adorable guardians that make her fight off the darkness in others' hearts. Best of all? Everything is very kawaii!


Tokyo Mew Mew and Shugo Chara! are both light-hearted magical girl anime with bright colors and crisp character designs. Amu and Ichigo receive their powers and befriend people who fight alongside them, but in the end, it's really up to these two girls to triumph over darkness with their purifying attacks. Such is the life of a pink and perky heroine! ;) If you liked one of these shows, you might enjoy the other as well.


Tokyo Mew Mew and Shugo Chara each have strong female protangonists that are able to transform to help the world and fight for what they believe in.  Both sort of involve love triangles but mostly the series revolve around developing friendships and strength of character.


Both series have female protagonists who suddenly become "magically able". They both have to use their own powers together with friends to save the world/random other people.

If you liked one, check out the other.


First and foremost, they are both long anime in the magical-girl genre. Long transformation sequences, cutesy powers, and pretty costumes abounds. And, of course, there are oodles of eye candy and funny moments.


Both animes are about a girl with magical powers, who transform and have their own special weapons that they use to change something back into it's original form against the villians. The have romance, comedy, and are good animes :)


because it is quite like it in a sense that she has to help save people and she cant let anyone know 


They carry the same style but self minded in their own way.

I can recommend that if you like the first one, you will definitely like the other.

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?

Both series revolve around a somewhat 'ditzy' girl, who later comes to possess special powers, which she must use to save mankind. Both of these series are also must-see's for those who like watching anime about good 'ol fashioned teenage-girl crushes.


Both series show the friendship of the heroines and the other characters.

They both are about magical and things that would'nt happen in the real world with small pets that help the heroines out.

These two animes are a perfect match.


Both these shows are wonderful magical girl shows. The main characters, suddenly given magical powers, must save the world with the help of their friends! And of course, there's mystery and romance!


The similarities between Tokyo Mew Mew and CCSakura are so striking that I almost have to wonder if the former was intentionally based on the latter. That said, they both manage to maintain enough differences that one can watch both and still be interested in each. Cute mahou shoujo animes with a light-hearted feel.


Although in Tokyo Mew Mew, they have a group of girls fighting to save mankind, Cardcaptor Sakura is only one girl that must do the same. The are girls who have magical powers and try to stop something in each episode. It may be a while to finish but it will keep you watching.



How many magical girl animes have more than one outfit? Well... Sakura has like, 100 different dresses (possibly more counting the manga as well) It is also got romance in it :)

Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch

Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch

One clear festive evening, Lucia, a mermaid princess, rescues a young boy from drowning. With him, she leaves the source of her beautiful singing voice: a pink pearl necklace. Several years later, Lucia has grown into a young woman, and embarks on a quest to the human world to reclaim her pearl and find her lost love.

If you liked Tokyo Mew Mew you would also like Mermaid Melody because it has a similar plot line involving a group of girls with magical powers which are used individually, yet mainly as a team, to prevent disasters from happening to the world. In Mew Mew, the girls prevent these disasters by fighting off aliens, and in Pichi the girls must fight off an evil team of sea demons called 'Dark Lovers'.

These are both very "cute" anime, with magical girls and unusual team forces that tie in some strong romance with the main character. If you liked one, I am sure you will like the other. 


both anime are similar in the way that they are both romance anime aimed toward the kids. Neither anime involves serious fighting and both are about a young heroine trying to achieve one goal while finding romance along the way


Both Tokyo mew mew and Mermaid melody feature romance,magical girls, and bad guys. When I first saw Mermaid melody I instanly thought Tokyo Mew Mew! both magical girls really captivated me in watching it. Even though some people don't like magical girl as much. I think anybody who has at least seen one, you should try the other! They are both very cute. Also Ichigo and Luchia have shown similar qualities.


Both of these anime are very fimilar based on their genre alone. They both follow a group of magical girls, there is some romance, and both are very family friendly. If you don't mind overly-repetative episodes, I think any fan of childish magical girl shows would enjoy both of these.


both have girls transforming and romance and having to hide a secret from the boy they love but the boys find out at the end at help the girls fight the evil.


Both are magical girl shows where a team fights evil. Both further feature love story elements.

Hyper Police

Hyper Police

In a post-apocalyptic future, mankind now lives alongside demons, spirits and other supernatural beings. Everyone is interested in coexistence, but every society has rotten apples. The bounty hunter group "Hyper Police" does its part to catch and contain criminals, and with employees such as the half-cat, half-human Natsuki and Batanen the werewolf, law-breakers better watch out.

If you liked TMM for the cute catgirl aspect, you'll probably like Hyper Police, too.. But that's the only the thing they have in common.

Both anime have bright and friendly cat girls. Natsuki from Hyper Police is a bounty hunter trying to make the world a better place by example and catching the bad guys, and the girls in Tokyo Mew Mew make the world a better place by fighting a source of evil. Although they are aimed at different age groups, both are a great watch.


Both Tokyo Mew Mew and Hyper police feature catgirls; that is not the full reason for this recommendation, however. Both have sci-fi elements included within, slight comedy, and action as well. Also, both protaganists are out to better the world in both series. One through the capturing of criminals; the other through combatting a dangerous organization.
