I don't think it would have worked for what was obviously a corruption of both the Kaguya myth and the Selene myth.

kaguya, really? I can see some similarities if you're looking for it, but not nearly on the level of inspiration from selene.

A princess from a kingdom on the moon falls in love with a prince on the earth, but must return to her kingdom and so cannot be in love with him.

It's literally a combination of Kaguya and Selene in a very obvious way.

Only if you look at the barest possible surface details and ignore everything else about the legends and the manga/anime. For one, seeing as Selene had 50 children with Endymion and he was allowed to stay young forever thanks to her kinda implies their love wasn't forbidden. And Kaguya wasn't specifically forbidden from loving anyone - depending on if she remembers her background, she either didn't want to marry because she knew she'd return or just because, but IIRC she was never forbidden from love.

Not to mention the SM Serenity wasn't forbidden from loving Endymion because she had to return to her kingdom, but because their kingdoms were enemies which... you have to agree creates a rather different scenario than the legends. Especially once you add the

Plus, you know, Sailor Moon has kinda more going for it than what you implied in your replies. Unless I missed a part of the Selene and Kaguya legends where they became warriors vanquishing enemies together with a whole slew of other girls/women against various demons/enemies in a giant pot-pourri of legends, myths, magical girl shows and sentai with sprinkles of the mangaka's jewellery and fashion interest.
