Dennou Coil is probably one of the most artfully constructed anime I've watched and yet it remains light-hearted and fun throughout. There were only a few episodes of "filler" but even these were pretty fun to watch.

Both are the stories about a cyberspace layered on the real world. The concepts and details are bit more confusing and scientific in SEL. SEL is a must watch for anyone who like sci-fi anime like Dennou Coil.
Both have similar feels to eachother, and have a sci-fi element, and also involve a bunch of kids.
