The inspiration behind this question came when I learned that Hiro Mashima (Fairy Tail), Eiichiro Oda (One Piece), Tite Kubo (Bleach), Masashi Kishimoto (Naruto), Hidaeki Sorachi (Gintama), and most shonen artists who commented that they were inspired by Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball work in their interviews or artist comments. Plus, the concepts and cliches are recycled throughout Shonen series and many of these works reference Dragon Ball in some form.

I was wondering what was the most inspirational Shoujo series that most Shoujo artists look up to.

I guess Sailor Moon or Cardcaptor Sakura, but I didn't think so since not much anime or manga series imitated or made references to the shows. I might have to check some of the mangaka for their inspirations.

What do you folks think is the most inspirational Shoujo work for shoujo manga artists?
