Sailor Moon And The Spice Girls Are The Same Thing

Five ladies in each crew, these feminist pop heroes basically owned the ’90s. Because they are both awesome and exactly the same.

1. Remember the Spice Girls?

Left to Right: Scary, Baby, Posh, Ginger, and Sporty Spice. They were the English pop group of dreams with a very clear cut feminist agenda. Whoever was part of their artist development team deserves a medal for being the best and also a cut of however many millions were made on platform sneakers (looking at you, Baby Spice.)

2. Who could forget?

They were the baddest bitches in town, totally unapologetic and dedicated to having a great time. They were the ’90s and everyone loved them.

3. Remember Sailor Moon?

Left to Right: Sailor Mars, Venus, Moon, Jupiter, Mercury. The most universally recognized example of “magical girls” (a genre of Japanese anime specializing in young girls with supernatural abilities, hellbent on saving the earth/humanity/and mostly Tokyo,) Sailor Moon began as a manga series and quickly escalated to television where the series reached the height of its popularity.

4. They are the same thing.

Think about it. Five girls, all heroes, with different (yet familial) monikers, popular in the ’90s with a tendency to wear school girl uniforms. They were the most important feminists for a generation (mine.) They were both completely awesome.

5. Sporty Spice is Sailor Jupiter.

I’m pretty sure they both wore green and their hair in a ponytail for all of the ’90s.

7. They are extreme. With a capital X.

Sailor Jupiter was clearly the badass of the sailor scouts, and Sporty Spice was the badass of the Spice Girls. Physically fearless, they’d take to the frontline if/when necessary. Case closed.

I have no idea what a trackie is, in the same way I had no idea what Sailor Jupiter cooked half the time. So I guess that means they both share really specific interests that are, like, somehow niche?

ID: 1104758

Seriously. Everything looked kind of like a bento box, but other than that, I don’t know what’s going on here.

12. Posh Spice is Sailor Mars.

13. They are both fierce.

Everything about them was fierce!!! And perfect. They even have the same hair: straight, black, always in place.

14. They never smile.

Ever. Probably has to do with being fierce all the time. Or because Baby Spice smiled enough for the both of them.

15. They are fearless.

17. And not afraid to take control.

Whatchu doing driving the Spice World tour bus, Posh?

18. Baby Spice is Sailor Moon.

20. They are both adorable and PIGTAILS!

Clearly the cutest member of each of their team, Baby Spice and Sailor Moon even look the same. How are these parallels, like, coincidence?

ID: 1105077

Also they are both literally the cutest things to ever exist (fictional or not.)

ID: 1105107

22. They are super open about everything in a blissfully unaware manner.

Trying to get it together, but never quite getting it right.

24. Ginger Spice is Sailor Mercury.

ID: 1105214

26. Both are known for their daring hairstyles.

ID: 1105217

Short and colorful. The others kept is relatively safe. What’s up with that?

ID: 1105193

28. Both are the “smart” one.

ID: 1105212

They were kind of vocal about it, but come on. They’re both super smart and sweet, what’s not to love?

ID: 1105205

Of course, it should be stated that Ginger was hella confident and Mercury was a tad on the mousy side, but hey, nobody’s perfect. (Except Posh Spice.)

ID: 1105231

31. Scary Spice is Sailor Venus.

ID: 1105238

33. Both began as actresses.

The wildest of the bunch, Scary Spice studied performing arts in college, Sailor Venus began as Sailor V, and had her own television show. Born stars!

ID: 1105249

35. Who could deny that spunk?

No one.

ID: 1105252

Confident and cheerful, both ladies deserve to be everyone’s favorite but are often overlooked. Bummer.

ID: 1105273

37. Here’s to you, pop culture heroes of the ’90s!
