Koyuki is a downcast fourteen-year-old boy who feels disconnected from life. Socially unpopular and lacking confidence, he takes some solace in his fandom of fluffy J-Pop. However, when he saves a strange dog from a group of cruel young bullies, his life changes forever; for through this encounter he meets a genius guitarist named Ryuunosuke and subsequently is introduced to the world famous rock band Dying Breed.

Great Teacher Onizuka

Great Teacher Onizuka

With a history of leading a motorcycle gang and getting bad grades in school, why would 22 year old Onizuka ever want to become a teacher? Is it to educate young minds or spread the joy of education? Sure, if it involves being able to look up high school girls' skirts! Watch as this would-be educator uses his own life lessons and unconstituted methods as a means to control a delinquent class of students -- students who certainly aren't as happy to have him as a teacher as he is happy to be teaching...

Both Beck and GTO are stories of the main character living out their dream, despite first thinking its impossible.

The main characters, Koyuki and Onizuka, can almost be the same person but at different ages.  They both are shy around girls due to their lack of interaction throughout life and are dreamers who will aim high and keep trying to reach their goal.

The two shows share some great rock music and a good comedy meets love story.

Hataraki Man

Hataraki Man

28-year-old Hiroko Matsukata is the definition of a workaholic. On top of smoking too much, rarely having sex and having lousy luck nurturing her romantic life, she works excessively to get the job done. Alongside many co-workers at the weekly news magazine Jidai, Hiroko tirelessly works on countless stories – thus negating any chance of a social life. Can Hiroko balance her home and work life, or is she doomed to be a 'working man' forever?

Where do your priorities lie? For some, priorities may be more straightforward than others. Complications in life make it hard for some people to understand themselves, and end up becoming confused like Koyuki and Hiroko. Often they get stuck at a crossroads where they must choose to do something they aren't really comfortable with. If you're longing for a character that need to sort out her priorities like Koyuki in Beck, then watching Hiroko in Hataraki Man would suit you. On a romantic note, also, they are both just as indecisive as to what to do after graduating from high school.

La Corda D'Oro ~primo passo~

La Corda D'Oro ~primo passo~

Hino Kahoko is a sophomore at a high school which caters to both general students, and the musically elite. On the first day of class, Hino meets a fairy named Lili and is entrusted with a magical violin; this violin has the ability to express the music in someone’s heart, even if they do not possess the talent for playing the instrument. With the violin in her care, Hino must now compete in a musical competition, but the guilt of not having true musical talent consumes her. Lili’s dream is to bring happiness to people with music, but Hino isn’t sure she has what it takes to be the one to do it. Can Hino perservere, or will she abandon Lili’s dream?

Both revolve around the main characters growing musical talent and their love for music. Although one focuses on rock and the other focuses on classical music it has a similar theme. For anyone interested in musical anime I reccommend this.

Shinozaki is simple high school student whos life is like school-home-school. He doesn't have any talents and don't stand out of the crowd, moreover if he'd dissapear no one would even notice. But one day Shinozaki meets the bycicle and his life turns in 360 degrees angle. This anime has really good plot and gives the watcher an opurtunity to see how even a looser can become someone. Over Drive is similar to Beck because both tells the story of boys who wanted to be something bigger in their life.

Suzuka

Suzuka

Yamato Akitsuki has recently moved to Tokyo, and in order to maintain his less than wealthy lifestyle, he currently works at his aunt's bathhouse. While walking by the school one evening he sees a girl by the name of Suzuka practicing the high jump, and is instantly in love. Even better is the realization that Suzuka lives next door! Determined to prove himself worthy of her affections, Yamato decides to join the school's track team and show her what he’s got, but things won’t be so easy; for Suzuka has a love interest of her own, and it isn’t Yamato...

Beck and Suzuka do both focus on the developement of the main character(s), transmitting a similar feeling to the viewer. The drawing style is similar and although aside of that they don't compare much to each other, it is highly likely that from the way of how the story progresses and the story is told, you will like both, if you liked one.
