In the future, mankind faces a terrible dilemma: overpopulation!

DNA² and Video Girl AI are both opposites in situations, but the plots are synced. Both main characters, in DNA² and Video Girl AI, Have a problem; and it's attempted to be fixed by a girl.
In DNA², Junta Momonari is afraid of girls. A future girl makes him a Super-Playboy.
In Video Girl AI, Yota Moteuchi has his heart broken. A girl named AI needs to fix his heart.
These two shows are definitely similar in a way that the male protagonists are thrown into really odd situations that involve a female or two in the mix. Primarily the whole oddball setting of the shows is whats similar. Pretty unique shows and are a great watch.
For Niwa Daisuke, turning 14 should be accompanied by romance and the promise of new adventures into adulthood, but instead comes with a surprising revelation: all male children of the Niwa's bloodline inherit the powers (alter ego) of Dark, a phantom thief, upon their 14th birthday! Now, in addition to his ever-present quest to win the heart of his childhood friend Risa, Daisuke must commit acts of thievery (with his doppelganger Dark controlling his body), to steal mysterious pieces of art for unknown purposes. For Daisuke, his growing pains are just beginning!
D.N. Angel and DNA² have some similarities that put them in the same basket. Both have bishounen characters, which are what a lot of fans of these two anime are interested in. They also have a similar concept with personality changes. This makes the romance and comedy parts become very alike. DNA² goes a bit faster though and does have a somewhat different atmosphere, but they are still quite related to each other.
Both centre around a male protagonist who is a bit of a loser when it comes to girls but happens to have a genetic alter-ego who is a real charmer. In their attempts to capture the girl of their dreams both Junta and Daisuke end up losing out to their alter-egos. A lot of the comedy and romance is similar but the stories are different enough to avoid deja vu. While D.N.Angel focuses on a fantastical aspect, DNA squared has a more futuristic approach.
When Mikuri Tomokazu fell asleep on his 16th birthday, he expected to dream of girls and happy places -- but instead found himself on a strange battlefield in a desolate world! Now, Mikuri is saddled with the responsibility of saving the both the human and dream worlds from forces that could spell their destruction! But, more importantly, he is also saddled with a legion of adoring voluptuous girls. Questions abound: Who will Mikuri grope next? Will he ever score? And, less importantly, will the world be destroyed?
Both series are about the main characters getting new abilities, and having to change a predicted event.
In Yumeria, Mikuri Tomokazu was given super powers. He needs to Change a predicted future event.
In DNA², Junta Momonari is predicted to become a super-playboy. A future girl changes his DNA to cause this. Time is spent trying to undo this.
Side thought: Both series are very Echi...
Keiichi Morisato is just your average college student until one day, fate interjects as he makes a call for take-out food. Unknown to him, he reaches the Goddess Help Line, and contacts a goddess named Belldandy, who grants him a wish. Thinking it to be a joke, Keiichi wishes for her to be his girlfriend 'forever'.
DNA² and AMG both have a pretty nice romantic story. DNA²'s story might be more unique than usual, but AMG should even have more laughs than DNA². The way the characters struggle to make their love possible feels very similar though!
