The original novel Nobody's Girl was the spiritual successor to Nobody's Boy, and viewers of their respective anime series will find similarities as well. They are both fairly long series (51 and 53 episodes) from the 1970s, and have the same basic plots: heartwarming (sort of) orphan ends up going on a journey to find lost family and happiness. These often fun and cheerful shows are also full of tragedy and sadness (Remi more so than Perrine), and have honestly lovable characters that even those far older than the target audience will enjoy.
Both are stories originally from the same author and they share plenty of similarities. The progression of how the stories unfold is pretty comparable as well. Perrine is just a bit more cheerful, while Remi has a bit more dread, but they always know exactly when to turn things around for the best. Simply put liking one of these, you'll probably enjoy the other. And they also share the same wondrous composer.
The characters go through difficulties and should permanently work. To Perrine the fate is far more cruel and full of problems, while the Lunlun's problems almost always resolved in the same chapter.
It is noteworthy that Hana no Ko Lunln has elements of fantasy, while Perrine Monogatari is a law slice of life throughout, is by that what it have more true history.
While any two World Masterpiece Theater series could be fairly compared, Perrine and Porfy happen to be two of the closest to each other in a myriad of ways. Both incorporate a strong theme of travel, which shares many specific elements that would descend into spoiler territory if described further. Both are very slowly paced; much of the early action is episodic to the point where many viewers find both series dull. Finally, despite being made over thirty years apart from each other, their art styles are quite similar, with rather flat characters and extra attention to background detail.
