Synopsis:

Death and reincarnation are inescapable, but what happens in between? Without warning and without his memories, a boy who only recalls his last name - Otonashi - wakes up next to a girl named Yuri who offers him a gun and tells him to shoot an angel. Assuming it must be a misunderstanding, Otonashi is then almost killed by the angel and is drawn into Yuri's army to battle to delay the beginning of his next life. Immortality is within reach, but if Otonashi remembers how he died, will he keep fighting or allow himself to vanish?

Nyan Koi!

Nyan Koi!

Everyone around Kousaka seems to adore cats, but due to his allergies the teen can’t stand them. So when he wakes up one day and can hear what every feline is saying, Kousaka is annoyed to say the least. His new “gift,” it seems, is the result of accidentally breaking an enshrined statue of a cat; and what’s worse, Kousaka must atone for his sin and appease the vengeful spirit by aiding one hundred kitties-in-distress, or become a furry feline himself! Now, amidst helping various cats with mundane and trivial issues, Kousaka must try to dispel the jinx and attempt to salvage his self-respect – not to mention his love life - along the way.

DuskFey

Both Junpei in Nyan Koi! and Yuzuru in Angel Beats! are pulled into a situtation that they don't enjoy or fully understand and forced to go along for the ride. For both of them, failure means losing the life that they have now, but somehow humor finds a way into the shows. Kind of surprising, really.

Both shows have a video game version. While Angel Beats! started as a game, the Phantom anime is an adaptation of the Phantom game. Also both shows have action and moé girls. If you like one you should watch the other.

Popotan

Popotan

Imagine a mansion with a Christmas goods shop that appears out of nowhere, housing three beautiful sisters and a robot maid, all with very different personalities and figures. These sisters are looking for information that they can only acquire from "popotan," their term for dandelion flowers. After acquiring a hint of this information, the mansion and the girls vanish. Their travels take them through many places, and they meet a varied cast of characters during their quest, but what exactly is this information they're searching for so desperately?

Apparently both of them seem to be somekind of light comedy series, but as the story progresses the dramatic aspects become more stronger. Both of them have emotional endings. The only difference is that Popotan is a bit more ecchi and looks like it has a silly plot during the first episodes (big emphasis on the 'looks' there).

Princess Tutu

Princess Tutu

Once there lived an eccentric author called Drosselmeyer who wrote grand tragedies - one of them was the tale of a prince who sealed away an evil raven by breaking his own heart into tiny pieces. However, before the story could be completed, the author died and the tale took on a life of its own. Now, in a town where fiction and reality meet, the story continues on its tragic course with Ahiru, a duck who transforms into the beautiful Princess Tutu in order to restore the prince's heart. But will Ahiru's act of love be enough to defy the story's terrible destiny and lead to a happy ending?

Morwen

These two shows are pretty different in terms of genre, but they both feature comedy mixed with drama, and both ask questions about fate and feature characters loaded down by their pasts and a couple that might not be able to be together because of their nature. In the end I think these two shows come to two very different conclusions about the questions they pose, but they're still interesting to compare, so I think fans of one will enjoy the other if they give it a try.

Rosario to Vampire

Rosario to Vampire

Fifteen-year-old Tsukune Aono is average in every way; he has no hobbies, less-than-stellar grades and he's even flunked his high school entrance exam. His parents have managed to enroll him in a school, but it's no ordinary school! Tsukune will be attending the Youkai Academy, a place where monsters learn how to co-exist with humans! As the werewolves, vampires, witches and other monsters are required to retain their human forms, Tsukune - the lone human - is able to avoid their bloodthirsty gazes. However, he quickly attracts the attention of a number of devilish beauties including the vampire Moka, a busty succubus and even a young witch! It seems Tsukune's average life isn't so average anymore!
