Night on the Galactic Railroad and Goshu the Cellist both have the same feeling when you watch them. There isn't a lot of action, but it's more of character development and they are both kind of slow. However the way they are animated makes them feel a lot alike. Plus the ambient music definately helps too.

Night on the Galactic Railroad and Gauche the Cellist reminded me of one another when I watched them.  The music in both seems surreal throughout each, enveloping the characters in the scene.

Spring and Chaos

Spring and Chaos
  • Movie (1 ep x 60 min)
  • 1996

His father thinks he’s a failure, his students think he’s eccentric yet magnificent, and the impoverished farmers of his town think he’s an insufferably idealistic spoiled rich boy. Before renowned Showa-era poet and author Kenji Miyazawa became famous, he lived in a small town, struggling with personal philosophies that no one around him understands, and writing novels without resorting to selling out.

Spring and Chaos and Goshu the Cellist both have the same feeling when you watch them. They are both kind of slow-going, and there isn't a lot of action, but the way they are animated makes them feel a lot alike. They kind of have a fun-with-life feeling and have a good moral lesson.

Gauche the Cellist and Spring and Chaos are both extremely slow-paced movies with a great deal of drawn out scenes and similar themes.

Violinist of Hamelin is extremely dark, but also centers around music. You definitely will have a more depressing feel with VoH, but I did enjoy both of these.
TheBurningCrow
If you are a music lover, both of these shows are for you. Hamelin tends to play a lot of famous classical pieces of music, and Goshu the Cellist touches on a lot of classical music as well. Although they both are totally different series, music lovers will enjoy the two.

Whisper of the Heart

Whisper of the Heart
  • Movie (1 ep x 111 min)
  • 1995

Whisper of the Heart is a touching Ghibli slice-of-life story, about a young girl named Shizuku. While riding the train, she notices a fat cat riding alongside her. Following the cat, she finds a shop where she is told an enchanting story of a gold statue named "The Baron". WotH follows Shizuku in her struggles to grow, and her budding love with the shopkeeper's son.

Whisper of the Heart conveniently is another film by Studio Ghibli (Goshu the Cellist being made by one of the heads of Ghibli, before Ghibli was created). But the reason I chose this as a recommendation is because they both are centered around a main character and their love of music. Both don't necessarily have anything special that makes them exceptional, they just give you a great feeling at the end.

These animes are both beautiful with a theme of music. Their characters are mellow, but still have a need to get what they want. Small-town setting with many interesting characters that are timeless and beautiful

The Cat Returns comes to mind when seeing Goshu the Cellist, because both have cute talking animals that lighten the mood of the story. They also each have a good feeling that comes from finishing it.
