There is a similar feeling of not having a place in your own family that both main leads carry. Both characters find new places of warmth and caring but it leaves them even more aware of how lonely they are. Each series is heavy on family drama and it's handled in a noticeably mature way.
Has the same kind of feel and they both deal with making friendship with neighbors and loss of family.
