hmm, not exactly what you want, but usually i do such things with
setting different RS, e.g.

awk -v RS='[<>]' '!(NR%2)'

but just noticed that p9 awk doesn't take RS as a regex, as gnu-awk
does. So i'd maybe translate one of them using tr before (also noticed
that escape sequences don't work with tr, however, this works somehow),

echo 'outside<and inside>angle brackets' | tr '<>' '

' | awk '!(NR%2)'
