"Back in the day, that place was a house filled with magic—a place where you ended up smiling even if you were crying. Surely, an invisible wizard must have lived there. Or so I thought."

What's a young child to do when her mother leaves her father for another man? Or when her father remarries a woman who brings along a child from a previous marriage? Or when her childhood neighbor friend invites her to live with him?

“I no longer have a home. I no longer have a place to return to. Nobody is waiting for me anyway. There’s nobody who needs me.”

Mao is a teenage girl who does not know the warmth of family. Her mother ran away with another man, and her father rarely pays any attention to her. Her only happy memories occurred when she was with Hiro, Daiki, and Hina Nakamura, childhood friends who were eventually split apart after their parents died in an accident.

A kind, older guy who does not really show his concern towards the heroine, except at moments it is really needed. And the heroine is a strong person, who has a deep love for her family, but that is not going so smooth (because of other reasons). Both stories do show the love growing between both characters, but it also pays more attention to other factors, like seeking support, finding solutions to problems etc.
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.
