Synopsis:

After his apartment burning to the ground and almost being killed by a falling metal object, Ohmura Takeshi is ready for the afterlife. Luckily, a beautiful angel appears to heal his wounds and inform him that if he stays with her, no harm will come to him. The catch? His long-lost deadbeat dad has passed along a curse: he will experience nothing but sadness in his life. Now, after changing to a human to maintain close contact, Elle will stop at nothing to make sure that a bit of happiness comes into Takeshi's life, but not before first learning how to be a human!

Ah! My Goddess

Ah! My Goddess

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'.

In both series some godess/angel (read: devine being) appears out of nothing and tries to make the male figure happy in some way. Both these devine being do not know how the human world flows and wat to get used to the way humans live. Both series are perfectly similar to eachother, so if you like one, you will quite probably like the other as well.

These two anime are very similar in character and story, almost as if they are twice the same anime but made by different people. The situations within are extremely similar leading to a comparable romance, situations, and character. It's impossible to like one and not the other. The difference is that where Happy World stops is where Ah My Goddess continues. Watch both and you'll feel like watching the same show twice.

Happy World and Ah! My Goddess have more in common than just angels. Both have a very romantic comedy type feel to them, involving a young man who has a woman forced upon him. Of course, love inevitably follows, and the rest is history! I do think you'd enjoy one if you enjoyed the other.

Pita Ten

Pita Ten

Tragedy struck Kotaro Higuchi as a child in the form of his mother's death in a car accident. But fate has a funny way of doing things, and years after the fact an angel-in-training named Misha decides to pay him a visit. Joined by his fellow elementary school students, and later by the nicest demon you'll ever meet, Kotaro and Misha will embark on a journey of laughs and love.

Granted, Happy World is much more ecchi, while Pita Ten is syrupy sweet and cute.. but both involve angels helping out mere humans, with comedy and tragedy at the same time. Definitely you'd like one if you like the other.
Harbin

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. People who like lighthearted series will enjoy both of them.

MalteseFalcon

The stories of Pita Ten and Happy World center around an orphaned kid who has an angel decide to visit him and try to improve his life. Both have similar tones and atmospheres, so if you enjoyed one, you should be sure to enjoy the other.

Rizelmine

Rizelmine
  • TV (24 eps x 14 min)
  • 2002

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!

These two series are almost 100% identical, besides the fact that in Rizelmine is somewhat more violent, as the boy literally kicks Rizel around.
Himitsu

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.

Angel Tales

Angel Tales

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.  However, things change one day when he comes home - having been fired yet again - and finds three young girls sitting in his apartment. 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!

Ran

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.

Although the stories of Happy Lesson and Happy World are very different, these anime have the same kind of humour and "happy" optimistic mood during the episodes.
