Angels dropping out of the sky, angels helping to make people happy, angels who go to the same school with the main male character. Sound familiar? If you like Happy World, you'll like Pita Ten because of the supernatural element in both series, which is the main drive for both stories.

In the present, the Japanese government has been conducting experiments to genetically engineer a human: a girl named Rizel. The experiment was a success -- sort of. While healthy and cheerful, 12-year-old Rizel also ended up possessing the uncanny need for “love” to further her development, as well as tears which were in fact volitile explosives! When sadness can end up destroying a city block, what's a girl to do except... get married?! For Iwari Tomori, the young man chosen as the most appropriate partner for Rizel, life is about to change, for better or for worse!
The main protagonist for Rizelmine is very similar to Happy World!, especially on their reaction + behaviour towards their new clingy companion. The plots are similar, and they even have similar elements (such as the slight fanservice). Happy World had great character design and lots of use of colour. Rizelmine was much more fulfilling to watch.
Goro Mutsumi is a young man that never seems to catch a break; he has a hard time keeping a job, has horrible luck, and continuously finds himself in bad circumstances.

They're the reincarnated angels of his deceased pets, and they're here to turn his luck around given how well he treated them in their past lives. While the idea sounds like a godsend, things don't go quite according to plan; the angels tend to cause more harm than good, and twelve altogether end up joining Goro's cramped household! In addition to learning how to co-exist with his newly acquired roommates, Goro must also defend them and himself against four sacred beasts who are after him for mysterious reasons. One thing's for certain: Goro's life will never be the same!
In both Angel Tales and Happy World, an unlucky boy meets angels that are suppose to compensate for his bad luck, and make his life better; however that encounter will be more trouble than help at first, and in both series, it results in funny situations.
