"Stop saying every magical girl series is a ripoff of Sailor Moon"
What's worse? I saw someone say that Star vs the Forces of Evil was "a really badly done, low quality American version of Sailor Moon" and that they law suited Disney for it.:stare:
Why do people keep saying that every show with a magical girl protagonist is a Sailor Moon ripoff? Magical girl was a genre long before Sailor Moon existed.
So stop accusing every single cartoon with a magical girl of being a "ripoff" of your precious Sailor Moon.

fans think that sailor moon and evangelion were the first to do those genre but that's incorrect. the first magical girl was sally the witch and the first mecha anime was mazinger z, so we have had those before it's just hadn't went mainstream yet.

As a magical girl/boy fan who's fave is Sailor Moon, I 100% stand by it!

Just because that a show is very similar to another, doesn't mean that it's a ripoff. Because not all shows are rip-offs.

Did these people ever think to themselves that the creators of SVTFOE and MLP were just inspired by Sailor Moon and they just placed the elements they liked in there because of that?

If we REALLY want to go there Sailor Moon herself is ripped off from Super Sentai. It was that genre that started the 5+ more team set up, color-coded members each with an archetypal personality, the different powers and transformations, and very strange yet surprisingly deadly villains.

To add insult to the injury, they even call Steven Universe a Sailor Moon ripoff. I'm not the only one who pointed this out.

I love Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon but I agree with this stamp. I love magical girl series (Japanese or not), and this 'series x is a ripof of saolor mun'  thingy kinda makes me...uncomfortable. Because the first Magical Girl ever was Himitsu no Akko-chan, which was been written on the 60's..60'S!!! And the first magical girl that was the model of the magical girls that we know nowadays was Cutey Honey, from the 70's. Like ???

I think people called Wedding Peach a Sailor Moon ripoff...

Ugh... I also hate it when people called Pretty Cure a Sailor Moon ripoff, they're both from the same studio...

I once saw a guy call Revolutionary Girl Utena a SM ripoff... Dafaq?! I really love Sailor Moon, I really do (the Japanese and Viz dubs at least), but just because its a Magical Girl/Shojo series does not mean its a ripoff!

Really? Utena is very different from Sailor Moon. They may both have transformations, magical objects, girls using magic, and a theme of secret duel lives/identities and other magical girl tropes/themes, and also Utena and Anthy being based off Haruka and Michiru, but they only have THAT much in common.
