Both of these shows are about a large group of girls who wish to become popular idols. Most of the girls have never met before so the shows are about them becoming friends and facing idol-related challenges together. If you enjoyed one, you'd probably enjoy the other as well.

the main theme here is idols! so just by that it is clear that there are going to be alot of similarites, but there is with any other idol anime. but with these two animes they are both about a rather large group of girls who start being idols for a greater good e.g. bringing entertainment to the world or saving there school from closing down. which ever one you watch you will see the character development form just normal girls to idols.

just started this after watching AKB and i'm loving it already. it's pretty good! at first i was a little hesitant bc AKB is sch a good series. with it's combination of catchy songs, bright colors, cute outfits and action scenes, i didn't know if Love Live would be able to stand up to it but it's done a pretty good job so for. i gotta admit i was happy with this recomendation and i'm sure others will be too.

They both include idols mainly, they are both about a group of girls who want to become a big idol group together! I also thinj some of the character personalities are pretty similar Nagisa = Honoka? Anyway I think that if you enjoyed on you should enjoy the other, as long as you like idols you should be fine!

Led by the kind-hearted and determined Producer, these talented performers such as twins Mami and Ami, quiet Yukiho, clumsy Haruka and gifted singer Chihaya will do their best to become the best idols around.

If you liked either of these shows, I think you'd be interested in the other. Both of these shows are about a large group of girls who want to be popular idols. Although the setting is very different, they both include group friendship, dance/preformance numbers, and cute music.

AKB0048 is basically inspired by Idolmaster and shares all atributes except the setting which differs greatly between the two. Idolmaster is AKB0048 without the SCI-FI Future fantasy to put it blatantly. Idolmaster takes place in modern time Japan while AKB0048 takes place is a dystopian future. 

AngelBeatsYui AngelBeatsYui says...

Well they both have genres in common, idols and music. Both are have quite good storylines and the characters are pretty similar. They also both have small comedy elements even though that isn't the main focus. Finally even though they are set in different areas the idea was quite similar, they follow a bunch of girls into their dream of becoming an idol. So if you liked one of these animes then you should like the other!

The guy's name is Seiji and he is actually a famous star! Unfortunately, Seiji's best friend and partner, Hiroto, intrudes on her fantasies claiming that she'd never reach the level of Seiji, and that she should stay away from him.

However, becoming an idol isn't all fun and games, it's fierce competition, hard work, and filled with rivals!

AKB0048 and Symphogear with have girls singing and fighting. AKB0048 focusses far more on the singing and adds dancing while symphogear focusses mostly on fighting. Both have strong sci-fi elements. AKB0048 more so than Symphogear. If you liked the singing in Symphogear than check AKB0048 out, if you liked the fighting in AKB0048 check Symphogear out, if neither of these apply than don't bother with the other.

Both are anime in the idol genre. While AKB 0048 is quite a different take on it all together. Both anime are on the exact opposites of the IDOL anime genre. Wake up, Girls tries to be as realistic as it can while AKB0048 takes place in a sci-fi setting. Both anime can be interesting if you like the idol genre enough.
