If you liked the Glass Mask (2005) anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
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.
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
They are both very good animes :) some of my favourites! If u like one your'll love the other ^^!

Both series tells us about strongly pronounced characters, what are going to score a success. We can see how the main chacters go through all the difficulties in sport/theatre. Every new episode makes us more and more interested in what's going to happen in future. Both series are not about a short period of time, no. It's about years of hard work.
