Besides Sailor Moon, lots of Clamp works~ Card Captor Sakura, Rayearth and Kobato. Though I like the manga the most.

There´s also Full Moon and Kaitou Jeanne from Tanemura Arina. Her drawings are so stunning and the stories are so... (Many tears, but many joy too, you know~)

Also Madoka. It´s so, so good! I´ve watched the series, the movies and read almost all manga (I still gotta continue Kazumi and Rebellion.)

And for design in general, I like Pretty Cure series. The henshin and the outfits are just so cute
[EDIT] Oh, yes! Sugar Sugar Rune! It´s quite different from the usual, really nice!

^ OMG those are almost all of my favorite Magical Girl anime. I'm not a big fan of Pretty Cure though, I haven't watched any of those. I'm obsessed with Arina Tanemura's works and CLAMP!

I like Princess Tutu and though its not apparently a Magical girl anime I like Utena. the story is tons of fun. I also think that Witch Hunter Robin might fall into this since she's a witch and all.

I've heard good things about Princess Tutu although I've never watched it. A lot of people do consider it to be a magical girl anime though.

I'm (slowly) rewatching Cardcaptor Sakura right now, and I'd recommend it to absolutely anyone. I also really love Precure (although I have so much left to watch still). I think I tend to prefer series where friendship or teamwork is emphasized and the characters are balancing things like school, friends/family, and being a magical girl. I did really like Madoka Magica, though. It's good to have a variety of different magical girls, and Madoka definitely had a unique concept. I wish they would do an anime/movie version of A Different Story! 
While I also wouldn't say Revolutionary Girl Utena is a magical girl series, I think it has some similar elements and is definitely worth the watch in my opinion. Honestly, it's one of my all-time favorites. 

I loved the manga of Saint Tail, but I haven't seen the anime yet. Any opinions of it? 

I really want to watch more of Creamy Mami and Magical Emi and start Princess Tutu, too!

There are so many different precure series. I think I started with Smile and then I took a break like 13 episodes in xD I'm debating going back xD

Sailor Moon will always be my #1 favorite, but my other top favorites would have to be Wedding Peach, Akazukin Chacha, Nurse Angel Ririka S.O.S, Kaitou Jeanne (in no particular order). I'm not not really into the newer series like Pretty Cure, although I do like Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch. Smile

Aside from Sailor Moon, my favorite Magic Girl manga/anime are Cardcaptor Sakura and Puella Magi Madoka Magika. I like the concept and art of Magic Knight Rayearth, but I wasn't wholly impressed with the anime. Still, it has a special place in my heart because I really do love Hikaru, Fuu, and Umi. <3

I LOOOOVE Magic Knight Rayearth. Read all the manga, and watched the anime series. They have special place in my heart, too! 

But yes, besides Sailor Moon and Magic Knight Rayearth, I like Puella Magi Madoka Magica and Card Captor Sakura. Smile

I haven't really seen too many, but besides Sailor Moon I really like Tokyo Mew Mew.  Wish it would have had a bit longer a run, but oh well.

@Flower Hurricane: If you get the chance, definitely give Tokyo Mew Mew a watch.  Just, make sure it's the Japanese version with subtitles.  Mew Mew Power made a bunch of really stupid changes, similar to how the original Sailor Moon dub did.

Would Shamanic Princess count as magical girl?  It was an under-rated OVA series from the early 90s and I loved how it told its story in a unique out of order fashion and the animation looks very lovely in it.  I also love how the girls in Shamanic Princess have guardian familiars that fight alongside them.

If we're talking anime its Sailor Moon, Madoka Magica and Magic Knight Rayearth and Lyrical Nanoha (Before A's.). If we're talking manga, its Sailor Moon, Madoka, Magic Knight Rayearth, Cardcaptor Sakura, Wedding Peach, Tokyo Mew Mew, Corrector Yui, and Sakura Hime. (There are others in both catagories, but I'm not sure if they're considered magical girl.)

I haven't seen all of Cardcaptor Sakura or Tokyo Mew Mew, and I cannot stand the anime adaptation of Wedding Peach. I do plan on watching Princess Tutu and Utena along with that anime that seems to showcase magical boys who get picked up by some pink wombat looking thing and transform into frilly and pastel outfits. I can't remember the title of it but it's supposed to pop out in mid-late '15. I saw it on tumblr.

I'd have to say Utena (not really, but it has touches here and there) and Madoka after Sailor Moon. I like the deconstruction of the magical girl genre that Madoka Magica does. It's amazing. Need to watch the movies, though.

You don't have to watch the first two madoka movies if you don't want to. It's a retelling of the 12 episode series. The third one, however, is a direct sequel. I actually have the third madoka movie downloaded subbed.

I love many magical girl anime. Card Captor Sakura, Sailor Moon, Heartcatch Precure, etc. But my all time favorite is Fancy Lala. It's a very cute old anime that aired around the same time CCS did. It's only 26 episodes long, but it's super sweet, well executed, has great messages, well developed characters, and a simple but very subtle and well done story. I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone!

I've always been curious about Fancy Lala. The problem is that I can't find a good website that streams it. Any ideas?

I know DVDs are still being sold online, and for cheap prices (except for the complete box set).

I did find some places that stream it though, sub and dub:
http://www.justanimedubbed.tv/fancy-lala-episode-1
http://www.anime-sub.com/watch/fancy-lala.html
http://otaku-streamers.com/info/2176/Mahou_no_Stage_Fancy_Lala <--- I really recommend this site. I've been going there for a few years, and it is a GODSEND if you're looking for old, unappreciated anime, or pretty much any anime under the sun.

Also, while this isn't a favorite, a friend of mine just showed me and forced me to watch Strike Witches.  If you can ignore the creepy amount of fanservice, it was a pretty decent show.
Rayearth is just awesome! I love it. I like Wedding Peach too.

I actually wouldn't consider Rayearth to be a magical girl series. It's more fantasy adventure than anything. That being said, Part 1 is fantastic. Part 2 is... lots of talking, lots of nothing.

My favorite has got to be Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Sailor Moon will forever remain in my heart because of nostalgia but Madoka hits the genre right out of the park in its characterization and style. Most people I know who watch it aren't even magical girl fans. You know you're doing when you can get that kind of fan base.

Saint Tail's another great one. It's a magical girl with stage magic! How cool!

I will never get the hyped for Madoka. I couldn't even finish the first episode. I went read the episode summaries and bleh.

My all time favorite series has to be Cardcaptor Sakura. The anime and the manga are both wonderfully written. I also love Ojamjo Doremi and Shugo Chara! (expect the last season. ugghh why they did do that Shugo Chara!!) Tokyo Mew Mew is another pleasure of mine. It's probably turned into a guilty pleasure now.

If you look at Madoka from a pure story basis, it's actually not that much better than Sailor Moon. Arguably, it's worse than Sailor Moon. Its characters and animation is where it truly shines. You don't get those kinds of fight sequences in any magical girl anime I've watched.

This particular transformation sequence is from the movie The Rebellion Story so it contains minor spoilers. It's a great example of the various styles the show utilizes to create incredible visuals.

@Sailor JC that part is more like a parody of this superlong transformations in the whole genre.
