7 animations that plagiarized / were inspired by Sailor Moon

Sailor Moon was one of the first in the genre of mahō shōjo to incorporate a team of magical girls fighting together, instead of the lonely magical girl. Since then, many manga and anime writers have adopted this formula. and they abused her.

Some of the authors did not bother to change their characters' costumes, hairstyles or weapons. Basically, they just gave Ctrl + C, Ctrl + V on the Sailor Moon model.

Nowadays, mahou shoujo anime of all kinds has become popular, but unfortunately many copy basically the same shape, style, clothing and history.

Check out 7 animations that are an obvious copy of Sailor Moon:

1. Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch

Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch is basically Sailor Moon, but instead of being guardians, protagonists are mermaids.

As in Sailor Moon, the main character needs to keep her true identity a secret. In addition, the main character, Lucia Nanami, it looks a lot like Usagi. She has the same hair color and style, and two of her other mermaids are Sailor Mercury and Sailor Jupiter.

2. Pretty Cure

Pretty Cure comes from the same animation studio as Sailor Moon, TOEI Animation. The transformations are very similar and even some scenes have identical frames.

In addition, several characters, such as Cure Caramel and Sailor Moon, have striking similarities. Both shows revolve around a group of girls from high school who fight for love, friendship and peace, who aim at evil spirits who try to take over the world.

3. Super Twins

Super Twins is a Filipino live-action that aired in 2007. When the teaser this show debuted, he received so much criticism for being a Sailor Moon fraud that the producer changed the clothes because they were very similar to those of Sailor Moon. Even so, it is difficult not to see where the program received its "inspiration".

4. Wedding Peach

Peach Wedding is about a high school student Momoko Hanasaki and your friends. They learn that they are legendary Love Angels who must protect the world from the evil Reine Devila and his minions.

This is very close to the arch of Season 1 of Sailor Moon. Not only that, but Momoko is given a magic pact by an ally, very similar to the way Usagi was given her transformation brooch by Luna.

5. Tokyo Mew Mew

The protagonists are five girls charged with protecting the world from threats. Unlike Sailor Moon, the girls' powers have been infused with the DNA of endangered animals.

That said, several of the characters' weapons and attacks bear a strong resemblance to their Sailor Moon counterparts. For example, the Rose Bell Mew Ichigo is very similar to the Crystal Carillon by Chibi Moon.

6. Winx Club

Winx Club is an Italian animated series that has spanned seven seasons. Not only is this show a copy of Sailor Moon, but it also borrows elements from the series Harry Potter too.

In addition, Clube das Winx also presents five heroines as its protagonists and a main character who is trying to obtain a magical power.

7. WITCH

WITCH is a show about five magical girls called Guardians of the Veil. Your task is to use a magic crystal to protect your world from evil beings from another dimension.

Sound familiar? Even one of the characters' attacks is incredibly similar to one in Sailor Moon. The fire attack of Taranee is an obvious copy of the attack by King Manding Burning.

Of course, many other works were also inspired by Sailor Moon. Do you remember another one you copied in the face? We look forward to hearing your comments and shares.

E só pra constar, achei os dois últimos bem chatinhos,rsrs.
