Both series talk about friendsheep and romance. We can find here a dramatic lovestory, where the hero is involved in a triangular situation. The main chacters can't understand their feelings in time or deny them till the end.

Millennium Actress

What starts as a simple interview of a legendary actress becomes a journey through the history of Japan. But this is no ordinary lesson; from the perspective of this actress, we learn of the beauty and sadness of love, the pain and regret and joy of the Japanese people and their film, through this film: Millennium Actress.

Both are about a young girls journey through the world of acting and their love (though eventual on Glass Mask's side) for an older man.

The teacher type figures were what struck me as being amazingly similar in Glass Mask and Chance Pop Session.  In Glass Mask the main characters are trying to make it in acting while in Chance Pop Session they are focused on music but the teachers that help them out along the way take on the same type of persona.  They are strict and ridged with the girls trying to make them succeed in the harsh world in which they endeavor to be in.

Nana

Nana

Nana Komatsu is on her way to Tokyo; now she can finally be with her boyfriend after a year of dating long-distance! On the train there, Nana Komatsu meets Nana Osaki – a girl who shares her name but seems to be everything Nana Komatsu is not; cool, street-wise, and a punk rocker. The two hit it off and spend the entire journey getting to know each other, but when they get to Tokyo, circumstance separates them seemingly forever. However, fate is not finished with these two. Whilst hunting for a place to live the two Nanas again cross paths. They decide to share a flat and become best friends in no time. Nana K. must learn to be independent and mature, while Nana O. works on becoming famous with her band; but together, they will learn about love and loss, and the growth that comes with it.

Both Nana and GlassMask are very similar as the main character is trying to fullfill their dream having support of close friends.While nana is more focused on friendship ( between nana and nana :P) Glass mask is more focused on rivalry and passion to archeive best actress

Three years ago in her final year of elementary school, Chihaya and her friend Taichi became infatuated with the card game, Karuta, after connecting with a lonely boy named Arata Wataya. But when the trio graduated from elementary school, they each went their separate ways but shared one common goal: to excel in the game and meet each other at the national championships. Now, Chihaya is attempting to share her passion for the game by creating a competitive Karuta club at school, but when she reunites with Taichi it seems that maybe she’s the only one with the intention of fulfilling their childhood promise...

Both Glass Mask and Chihayafuru are sort of like sports anime with a bit of a shoujo feel. The main characters work hard, spend hours practicing, and enter gripping competitions - all while keeping a romantic interest on the side.
