Synopsis:

Kakeru Daichi is an openly perverted sixteen-year-old boy who has never had a girlfriend. One night, after a refreshing shower, the boy decides to have a drink and opens up a can of melon soda; but his first sip turns into his first kiss as the can suddenly transforms into a cute girl! After his initial hesitance to acknowledge her existence, Kakeru - as her new owner - names the girl Melon and allows her to stay. Melon, as it turns out, is part of a government project in which aluminium and steel 'Akikans' fight each other to determine which is the superior type of can. Completely against the idea, Kakeru insists that Melon will not fight. Though with the appearance of Budoko, a grape juice Akikan; and Yell, a sports-drink Akikan; it seems that they won’t be able to avoid the battles forever.

Similar in that its a non-human girl and love develops between human & non-human. Akikan is less dramatic in romance and has some action though. I enjoyed both. :)

Bestanimeserie

In both shows the MC finds a girl and takes her home to learn how to live in society, chobits is more focused on the slice-of-life & story part and doesn't have that much action as akikan has but both feature comedy and ecchi so if you liked one you'll probably like the other.

Khaos

Both anime have their girls, who, having very special origins, end up in the house of a young guy, claiming that they are guys' own from the moment they have kissed them, and from that moment on, they have to fight for their master, with who they eventually will build up a close relationship.

Bestanimeserie

In both shows the MC randomly 'finds' a girl and takes her home both MC's are called master and they teach the girl they find how to live in society. Both girls have special powers and both shows have tons of ecchi if you liked one you'll probably like the other as well.

Queen's Blade: Gyokuza wo Tsugumono

Queen's Blade: Gyokuza wo Tsugumono

Tomoe, Risty, Echidna, Iruma, Ymil, Cattleya and the other busty, scantily-clad warriors are back, and ready to compete in the Queen’s Blade tournament; also joining the fray is angel from heaven Nanael. With no knowledge of who they’ll be called to fight and if they’ll live to tell another day, the girls will have to deal with tentacles, acid-spitting mammaries, plentiful groping and endless exposing situations to jiggle their way to the top of the competition!

Galadriel

Are you looking for animes with heavy ecchi aspects and some action/fighting aspects? Look no further, both Akikan and Queen's Blade: Gyokuza wo Tsugomono are the same in terms of anime genres but different in terms of "story" (if it has one) and plot.Even though this two have many differences they are quite similar in what i mentioned above so the thing is that if you like one of them then you might like the other one as well

wolfangel87

There is nothing ecchier without being extremely explicit than Akikan and Queen's Blade: Gyokuza wo Tsugomono.  Not however similar in storyline but both involve some intense action and fighting scenes to make up for it.

chii

Both shows are all about girls that have strange powers and have a male that must help them achieve their goals. This male is clearly getting into trouble all the time with boob groping and other ecchi filled things. Neither has an overly interesting plot to it but if you are in it just to get your ecchi fill both will satisfy that need. check out one if you liked the other.

Bestanimeserie

Both shows have an random girl show up at the MC house, and in both shows the girls fight to achieve their goals. They also have a lot of ecchi and no real story progression. If you liked one you'll probably like the other.

Aika Sumeragi is still in high school, but having already earned her C-class salvager's license, she has no need for career counseling.

A girl named Karen has mysterious tattoo which contains a hidden clue to the whereabouts of something unknown, and after packing their short skirts and panties, the club sets out on a journey to discover the answer; but not everyone on board is who they seem to be. Aika's first job is turning out to be far more serious than she originally thought; and thus, her illustrious career as a panty-flashing secret agent begins!
