Both shows take the "laid back" storytelling style to a whole new level. Instead of rushing the plot they prefer to guide you along by nudging you from behind for a walk through the forest of stories until you make it to the shining light at the end. Don't expect to be given many details about their worlds because it is left up to you to unravel the secrets.
Basically the same premise in both. Guy has an "imaginative" childhood, becomes ashamed of said childhood, switches schools to avoid being bullied, meets girl at new school that is currently having an "imaginative" period, guy inevitably gets mixed up in the girl's "adventures", and resolves himself to help her return to reality.
Putting it Simply, Girls with Special Powers fight Bad Guys.
Has a similar family feel, and the Main Character is also a seemingly average guy with a singular talent that can make a difference.
Week Kid want's to protect those around him. Ends up getting in tons of Epic Battles and becomes the Hero. They do differ in substantial ways but in the End you get the same enjoyment.
