While the two may seem to be worlds apart, the themes of caring for and raising a child and having to change your whole life in order to do that echo strongly through both.

I do agree that both animes are vastly different in plot lines, but very similiar in the aspect how raising a child has affected their lives.  

Usagi was more feel good - wholesomeness with slice of life appeal, where Seirei has the mystery element with action packed fight sequences.

Michiko & Hatchin

Michiko & Hatchin

After Hana is whisked away by Michiko, who claims to be her mother, the duo sets forth on a high octane ride towards freedom. In the streets of Brazil and aboard Michiko's motorcycle, Hana and Michiko will look for Hana's long lost father, try to learn to co-exist and get along together, and stay one step ahead of the police and afro-clad Atsuko.

Both Michiko to Hatchin and Usagi Drop are centered around issues of child rearing and child abandonment. Both Rin and Hana struggle with feelings of lonliness and abandonment. Both series have images of abcentee biological parents and orphans. Both Michiko and Daikichi have to make a lot of adjustments for their adopted children, so both series carry heavy coming-of-age and responsibility themes. Usagi Drop is more light hearted and real world while Michiko to Hatchin is more action packed and focuses more on adventure, both series have beautiful art and story lines. Both are a must see for anyone who has a soft spot for kids and parenthood. 

Natsume Yuujinchou

Natsume Yuujinchou

Natsume is lonely; he has an ability that separates him from others: he can see and interact with spirits. Soon, however, Natsume discovers that he’s not alone: his grandmother Reiko also had the gift. But things get hectic and possibly dangerous for Natsume when he finds out that he also inherited the 'Book of Friends', a book that contains the names of all the spirits Reiko defeated and subjugated. He finds himself hounded by his grandmother's underlings and, with the help of a 'cat' charm spirit, decides to free them from the Book's shackles, as well as protect the book from those who seek to misuse its power...

While these two anime have very different plots (as well as Natsume Yuujinchou being a supernateral fantasy and Usagi Drop being more realistic), both shows have similar feel.  They are both mostly light-hearted (with a little bit a drama here and there) and leave you with a pleasant feeling after watching them.  They are also very cute and touching series.

I agree that both are light-hearted and have a similar feel so I definitely think you'll enjoy one if you liked the other.

In both shows you will find an adorable girl suddenly under the care of a male protagonist. They each have their great share of cute scenes, comedy, and a pretty bland storyline that doesn't really go anywhere except daily life of the two. But they are both a fun watch on very similar terms.

While they may take place in completely different settings, these two anime remind me of each other. Both Bakumatsu Kikansetsu Irohanihoheto and Le Chevalier D'Eon are based around actual history that have supernatural elements woven into them. These are also both serious anime that can lose a person if you don't pay attention.
