Synopsis:

Maya is a dreamy young girl whose clumsiness is matched only by her absent-mindedness. While others have given up on her, the legendary actress Tsukikage sees her hidden potential and offers to take Maya under her tutelage. Maya loves the theatre more than anything, and as there's not much she can do about it at home, she chooses to run away with Tsukikage. The world of theatre is harsh, however, especially for a naive young girl far away from home. While she finds new friends who support her, her mentor has powerful enemies and Maya is often on the receiving end of their ruthless plans. In face of the adversity, Maya must constantly fight to develop her skills to catch up with her unbelievably talented rival, Ayumi, if she hopes to inherit Tsukikage's legendary role: The Crimson Goddess.

Blue Drop and Glass Mask have a different premise, but the way the characters interact (the girls) give you the same feel. Blue Drop is science fiction while Glass Mask is all drama; this recommendation is based on the two having the same kind of "drama".

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.

Chihayafuru

Chihayafuru

Chihaya Ayase is a famous beauty at her school, but she’s far from a conventional girl. 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.

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.

Hitohira

Hitohira

Asai Mugi's everyday life is very much impacted by a singular problem: she suffers from extreme shyness. Her sole friend Touyama Kayo would like to help her out as they've just entered high school, but Mugi's shyness is the sort that steals her voice entirely. It is too bad for Mugi that a freak shout on her part attracted the attention of Nono Ichinose. Nono is on a mission to save her Drama Research Society, and she isn't prepared to accept shyness as excuse from on-stage performances! With a small group of close friends to encourage and educate her, Mugi will be given a chance to be more than she is now. But, can someone so terribly shy really become a stage actress in just a few short months?

The style and even colour is different between Hitohira and Glass Mask, but both titles revolve around acting (or drama) as the story. You'll see some similar personalities in the characters, and the two anime have great OP/ED tracks.
