YuYu Hakusho is similar to Bleach

Yu Yu Hakusho is Bleach, but shorter and with less filler. Both series feature a student, juvenile delinquent who meets a female shinigami and ends up working with that shinigami (who decides to also go to his school often) to help spirits travel to to afterlife. The series then changes to a battle shounen and the protagonist teams up with his friends to fight monsters.

Showing any more similarity crosses into spoiler territory, but the main difference between the series is that YYH focuses more on developing the characters.

Demon Lord Dante is similar to Devil Lady

So many things are similar here: Character design; main theme(humans turning into monsters); smash cut zoom musical cues; and close ups on the eyes.
Given the fact that both series are the brainchild of Go Nagai, explains the similarities, as well as his expert way of telling so much with a mere close up of the eyes.
Spoiler: I found Devil Lady to be better with it's richer story line, but Dante has better plot twists.

After viewing this again the music gave it away. There's a lot of similarity to the character design, and musical cues on top of the OST(excluding the main themes). The plot style isn't too dissimilar, though Angel Tales has no nudity or time travel. They're also both semi-quick series AT:13 eps + a bonus while Popotan: just 12.
