At the core and it's visual style, these shows are quite differnt, but they are both set up as harem shows and it's only hinted that most of the girls are interested in the male lead in a romantic way. They both deal a bit with magical and supernatural powers, even if Bakemonogatari plays on that part much heavier than Air.

Both Air and Da Capo are harem in genre. They also both deal with issues one would have to face in a high school setting. In each series the main hero is trying to find out what is going on around him and how everything impacts the main heroine, the one that he loves. He also helps the other girls that like him.

Both AIR and Denpa to Seishun Otoko boast a female cast of oddities and have an eccentric, main female character as the appeal.  They have a bit of a random storyline that ends up making sense as the story progresses and they also have similar pacing.

LLORAtheLLAMA

Both these shows take place in a certain season; summer for Air and winter for Di Gi Charat: Winter Garden. Just like the different seasons, there is a different type of romance in both of them.

The stories are pretty different, while Di Gi Charat focuses more on the slice-of-life elements and Air focuses on the mysterious elements.

But even though they are pretty different, they both have the same feel to it. They each have beautiful art, animation, and colors. If you've loved one of these 2, then the other one is definately a must-watch.
