While both of these series have rather different plotlines, they both give off a similar sort of vibe. They are both fairly family-friendly adventure series, and though Popolocrois is more of a fantasy, Kosuke and Rikimaru also has elements of the fantastic about it. If you enjoyed one of these series, it may be worth trying the other.

.hack//SIGN

In a massive online world, people act only as well as their conscience demands. When one player's punishment is to be trapped in this world, a disparate group of people seek the answers why. Their motives are varied; their methods even more so. What stands between when we tear down the walls of reality? Where does our soul end and we begin?

Both .hack//SIGN and PoPoLoCrois Monogatari place heavy emphasis on their characters' developments, greatly slowing down the story in many instances to focus on them. Some more trivial similarities include their fantastical settings (With SIGN incorporating heavy sci-fi elements as well) and the fact that they both tie in with related video games. SIGN is a much more 'grown-up' series than PoPoLo, but don't let that put you off either series!
