Synopsis:

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?

Both series focus on the importance of friends and family. Both also have some ecchi moments (nothing really bad in either, IMO).

Angel Beats!

Angel Beats!

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?

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).

DearS and Popotan both deal with a group of mostly girls who are completely naked for most of the time. While Popotan lacks the romantic element, both are pure ecchi and if you liked one the other is worth a look.

Magraal

Popotan and Kanon both share a similar format- the opening episodes of both deal with light-hearted interpersonal relationships between a cast of upbeat and happy characters but throughout each gradually darker themes are introduced to overshadow the primary characters' pasts, resulting in a not-so-upbeat ending.

While Popotan and Kino's Journey are very different series, they share the themes of constant travelling, only staying in one place for a limited amount of time, the joy of meeting new people, the pain of separation, and the value of connections with other human beings. Both shows are also episodic, with different stories in different places in most episodes.
