W. I. T. C.H has a terrible animated show, but great comics and novels to a certain point after which it kind of lost the focus. It really has somewhat more of a Sailor Moon feeling than Winx. The characters are good, some of the villains are great. I can actually say to comics starts just as good as Sailor Moon and for the first two arcs maintains a great quality.
actually, no, the animated show is pretty good especially the second season writed by greg weisman(Gargoyles), it's just that many comics reader did'nt like it because it was not faithful to the comics. but différent don't mean bad.
actually, I think the season 2 story arc is better in anime than comics (season 1 is better in comics, but season 1 was not wrote by Weisman)
The animated show made WITCH less magical girl and more heroic fantasy/super hero show. Greg Weisman said in an interview he was asked to use the comics only as an inspiration and make a Super hero show aimed for both girls and boys (while the original comics was aimed for girls), it's was the TV show have more action battle and active males characters fighting with the girls

for me in the comics, the season 2 is not that great, everything is too fast. after season 1, the best season is season 4.

my top would be:

Season 1
Season 4
Season 5
Season 2
Season 3
Season 7
Season 8
Season 6

And I don't think it's really fair to compare it with sailormoon, the serie have more a Buffy the Vampire Slayer feeling to me.

Some character are even nearly carbon to the scooby gang.

The Oracle is Gilles

Will is a mix between Willow and Buffy

Cornelia is mostly Cordelia

Taranee is mostly Willow (and some Buffy vibes too), the later part of the comics even have some lesbian undertones about her (she said is season 8 than Will is more than a Friend for her and don't have male lover after season 5)

Irma is Xander

Even some of their name seems similar (WIll/Willow, Cornelia/Cordelia, Taranee/Tara)

The series also focus much more than Sailormoon to teens problems like in Buffy, it's mostly half of each season.

I am sorry, but I think this is down to personal preference and I think the animation on the show was objectively quite bad. The story in both has way more developed slice of life themes than Sailor Moon, the characters are way more fleshed out, but between Winx and WITCH, I think WITCH is more similar to Sailor Moon.

the animation was pretty average, I am okay with that (not that bad, many series from that time had worst animation especially in japan, it was nearly at the same level that TMNT 2003) .

But the serie itself was pretty good (animation quality don't make a show Good or Bad, it's just a bonus)

Season 9 of Winx is going to be a soft reboot, and the girls' Sailor Senshi uniforms fairy outfits are versions of their season 2 "Charmix" transformation.
What do you guys think?
