* AudienceAlienatingPremise: As mentioned multiple times on this page, people tend to get turned off from the series purely on the account of the fact it's heavily wedding-themed and one of the MagicalGirl forms is a wedding dress, either because [[WidgetSeries it sounds weird]].

* UnfortunateImplications: The main accusation against the series from feminist groups or otherwise is that it pressures girls to get married and portrays marriage as the ultimate endgame goal that a girl should strive for. In practice, the series prefers to discuss the concept of love (regardless of what gender the focal character is) and uses marriage as a symbol of its proof, rather than pressuring any character into desiring marriage (every character involved in a relationship does it of their own accord) or treating it like an ultimate life goal, and the way the girls spend discussing the subject is on par with most other shoujo works. It ''is'' gender role-reliant and doesn't show any characters who actively desire not to fall in love and get married, which could potentially lead to an implication that most/all girls already desire that, but it's worth noting that the series was aimed at the kind of demographic that likes this kind of thing to begin with ([[MerchandiseDriven and would buy merch of it]]).
-->'''Yazawa:''' After all, the concept came from Wedding; girls love wedding and dresses (included wedding dresses of course. I know it could be issues, but true), so we wanted to add wedding/dress elements to magical fighter girls' manga/anime. The idea "fighting brides" were amusing, so we thought children enjoyed it simply and teenagers could be amused with it.
* ValuesDissonance: For various reasons (among them being heavier emphasis on gender roles and a general promotion of femininity for girls), dreaming about getting married and a love for wedding dresses isn't uncommon among young girls in Japan, and the series is marketed with this demographic in mind. Although there had already been concerns in Japan about the series (see UnfortunateImplications above), the concept seems downright alarming to a Western viewer.

** It never aired on a TV network there (with the exception of Italy), meaning it never managed to reach the target demographic in the first place, so even after it was picked up by Creator/ADVFilms the only people who were willing to look into it were adult anime fans who would be less likely to be interested in this kind of series and don't have the perspective of people who watched it as part of the intended audience.

** While ''Sailor Moon'' was certainly iconic and incredibly popular in Japan, it still happens to be one among an entire genre of MagicalGirl shows, all of which share similar tropes and visual elements. However, in the West, due to most of said shows [[NoExportForYou never making it across]], ''Sailor Moon'' is put on a pedestal as it's considered synonymous with the genre or even anime as a whole, and so the fact this anime has more similar elements to it than most makes it seem more like a ripoff.

* AmericansHateTingle: For the most part, the series has a very negative reputation in the West as a cheap ripoff of ''Anime/SailorMoon'', as it never managed to be VindicatedByHistory the same way it was in Japan. (This is mainly in regards to surface-level critical reviews that don't go beyond a few episodes or simply from [[ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch people who haven't seen it at all]], as it tends to get moderate to positive reviews from those who actually manage to see it to the end.) This is due to a handful of reasons:

* VindicatedByHistory: In Japan, while it was airing, the anime gained a bad reputation at the hands of ''Sailor Moon'' ripoff accusations (mostly from people who [[ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch hadn't even watched it]], or at the very least hadn't gone beyond a few episodes). When things had cooled down after ''Sailor Moon'''s broadcast, some professional critics began giving the series a number of good reviews as a "hidden masterpiece". The resulting CriticalDissonance prompted those in the Japanese anime fanbase to reassess it; ultimately it gained a respectable reputation, and carries some significance as Creator/OLMIncorporated's first major anime (although it never managed to gain long-lasting popularity). However, this vindication failed to ever make it to the West, where it's still considered a cheap ripoff by most of the people who've heard of it.
