What do you think about W.I.T.C.H. and Winx Club and how would you say they compare to SM?

Which do you prefer? Which would you say is a better show regardless of which you like more personally? Similarities and differences between them (themes, level of maturity, major tropes...anything really)?

they are sm's bad copies. winx club is the most suitable one for kids.

There also was this short-lived "Princess Starla & the Crystal Savers" (Dunno the exact English title) thing which was partially hyped as 'the next Sailormoon'... :wtf: *facepalms* OMG, how wrong they were. It looked more like some kind of fusion between "Saban Moon" and "He-Man/She-Ra"... :lol:

I've been watching Winx Club since its debut in 2004 (I'm from Italy) and I find the show quite enjoyable even now (although sometimes silly or akwardly girly with all those sort of cute pets/creatures). The characters I like there are Knut (I like ogres) and the Trix.
I also remember reading some W.I.T.C.H. comics. Not bad. But I can't say much since I'm not that familiar with it.
I think both of them take some inspiration from Sailor Moon, and even though they're more suitable for kids, they can be perfectly enjoyable by adults too if you're into cartoons and comics.

Personally, between the two Italian works I prefer W.I.T.C.H. in its comic book form, at least until the end of the "Teach 2B W.I.T.C.H." story arc. After that, however, it became too focused on selling, possibly to younger girls, completely lacking overarching villains and missing multiple chances (I'm particularly irritated when the final story arc didn't bring back Orube in spite of the perfect chance to do so).

I agree.

Are they better or worse than Tokyo mew mew or Wedding Peach?
The first 4 seasons of Winx are definitely better than TMM.
What's interesting about them is that 4kids made unfinished dubs of both shows.
And yes, there's definitely influence of SM. The Winx creator already stated he made the show in order to fill the gap SM's enourmous success left in Italy.
