Naoko most famous work is Sailor Moon although it would be nice to see her do another manga again. But did it change how Japan saw the genre? What I loved about Sailor Moon was how action packed it was and still had enough magical girl to make it fun to watch that's what made me turn off winx a due to the fact that it was more magically that action packed.

I think Go Nagai changed the magical girl genre with Cutey Honey on the action part. Then Devil Hunter Yohoko and then Sailor Moon added the sentai aspect and blended it all together.

Yeah, my mistake.

It definitely was a big influence in many future magical girl series and it is the most widely known and loved.

Yeah, it did. Now nearly every series that follows is usually some sort of cheap knock-off. P-:

NO.

Shotaro Ishinomori (Kamen Rider) changed the magical genre when he created Bishoujo Kamen Poitrine.

Well, apparently Takeuchi had borrowed some elements from it, but there're also other important elements in Sailor Moon not found in it. :)

"Bishoujo Kamen Poitrine" was one of TOEI's biggest hits in Japan in the late-80s/early-90s.

I cannot prove, but I am convinced that TOEI approached Naoko and asked her to create a similar product (hence, Sailor V).

There are too many similarities between "Bishoujo Kamen Poitrine" and "Sailor V": https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=IScTLBWYXlg

And when TOEI executives asked Naoko to create a "chibi" version of Sailor Moon, they essentially wanted to do the same thing that they did in the second act of "Bishoujo Kamen Poitrine": https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Emwi52h2iGA

Yeah, I should've said Takeuchi had borrowed many elements from it. And I've almost forgotten that "Chibi Poitrine." :chibiusa:

Yeah, she did help give “rise”to that genre, but I do think that with the help of Toei, SM ended up being special and stood out from the rest.

I can't be certain but I think Sailor Moon did indeed influence, maybe not change the magical girl genre, but it absolutely helped chance the anime industry as a whole at the time. At around the mid to late 80s a lot of studios created a lot of anime with foreign settings in order to market to them, I tend to think Naoko was part of this as well with Codename Sailor V. But Sailor Moon ended up as part of the big five that dominated the western audience through dubs. I can't really state one way or the other but I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if Sailor Moon did chance the condition of the genre as well as anime as a whole.
