Whats and Angelican?
To oversimplify, Calvinism, and its countless offshoots, would represent the strand of Protestantism traditionally most different from Catholic; Lutheranism was traditionally moderately different; and Anglicanism most similar. Methodism was an offshoot from Anglicanism, but perhaps more "Protestant". Anglicanism has a wonderful spiritual heritage, i. e. The King James Bible, the Book of Common Prayer, and a great deal more.
In Africa and Asia Anglicanism is conservative, and growing. But in England, and other places especially in the US, Anglicanism is extremely liberal, very much following the trends of the secular culture on morality, and perhaps on theology. That is why many new Anglican churches have split off from the Episcopal Church; and why the Vatican now offers an Ordinariate, in England, the US/Canada, and Australia, so far. About 22 "Anglican" priests in the US have converted to RC this year, I believe, with many more in formation. A few bishops, too.
