Sailor Moon S, being one of the most serious instalments of the franchise, has some of the same dark overtones of Revolutionary Girl Utena. Both are classic shoujo that handle lesbian relationships that develop in a magical battle of sorts. Sailor Moon S does not reach the level of depth and weirdness of Revolutionary Girl Utena but both anime add nuances to the magical girl genre.

Both from the same director and feature a similar atmosphere throughout. Ikuhara also commented that the Utena series started out from a concept for a subplot he had for Sailor Uranus and Neptune.

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.
