Synopsis:

It's the first day of high school, and plenty of school clubs are doing their best to recruit new members. However, for ditzy Yui, none of them seem to fit the bill. However, when she accidentally signs up to join the light music club, Yui begins a hilarious adventure to become a world class guitarist! There's just one problem: she's never played the guitar before in her life! Joined by bassist Mio, drummer Ritsu and keyboardist Tsugumi, Yui and the gang will juggle their studies with buying instruments, learning how to read music and even performing in the school festival, all in the hopes of someday becoming a successful band!

Stella Women's Academy, High School Division Class C3

Stella Women's Academy, High School Division Class C3

Yura Yamato arrives for her first day at her dream school, the Stella Women’s Academy, eager to have a wondrous experience. But the teen’s fairy-tale dreams are soon dashed by a rather jarring recruitment into the C3 club - a group of girls who love nothing more than to play survival and war games on campus with Airsoft and BB guns! How will the typical Yura navigate her way through a club whose name stands for Command, Control and Communication, when all shes wants is to have a normal high school life?

K-on and C3 involve different types of clubs, but have a definite  similarity in tone and feel. Both involve cute girls who have various adventures as part of a school club, are lighthearted, etc. If you liked one, you'd appreciate the other.

blindwhatif

Both K-On! and C3 give you that casual club setting. Here, "To join, or not to join?" is the question.  Cute Characters, Same feel with different style. If you like one you would like the other.

Bradalee

Both shows are fun comedies that revolve around a group of girls who partake in club activities. The clubs may be wildly different from one another, but the characters, comedy and tone are very similar in each show.

The iDOLM@STER

The iDOLM@STER

Everybody knows it's tough being an idol, especially the girls at 765 Production. Made up of thirteen young ladies, the group constantly attempts to improve its image by taking new promo shots and booking the best gigs possible, whether it's being a concert star or a quirky cooking show guest. Led by the kind-hearted and determined Producer, these talented performers such as twins Mami and Ami, quiet Yukiho, clumsy Haruka and gifted singer Chihaya will do their best to become the best idols around.

Both of these anime are about a group of girls with a passion for music, learning, preforming, and being cute! They are both slice of life anime about practicing hard to be great preformers, but with many side adventures. Toss in similar art styles, and it's easy to come the conclusion that fans of one would also enjoy the other (although K-On is better).

DearlyStars

Both of these slice of life anime are about a group of girls who have a love for music and performing. They both follow the groups through all of their mishaps, hardships and victories!

Takeya

Both anime are sugesting great amout of music, but in both ways we get comedies with silly girls. Prefer hamsters, cake, moe girls and alot of gags than music? Good for you. You will like both series.

Clannad

Clannad

Tomoya Okazaki is a third-year high school student who is generally bored with life and doesn't take his studies, future, or anything else seriously. One day, however, he meets a lonely-looking girl in the school courtyard, Nagisa Furukawa. She explains to him the source of her loneliness: she had missed a lot of the previous school year and thus is repeating her third year; everybody that she knew has already graduated, and she is lonely. Tomoya is rather indifferent at first, but decides that he has nothing better to do and spends increasingly more time helping Nagisa restore the school drama club. As his relationship with Nagisa grows, Tomoya begins to open up to various other people around the school as well...

Although K-On! stays away from love stories, both of these series are slow moving, school based stories that have forming a club as a strong motivator in the series (at least for some of each of them).

Raylord

Although the story and plotline is rather different the humour in both of these have a simular after taste. Both of them can be watched several times without getting bored.

Hyou-ka: You Can't Escape

Hyou-ka: You Can't Escape

"If I don't have to do it, I won't. If I do have to do it, make it quick," is the basic principle by which energy conservationist Houtarou Oreki lives. But after his sister convinces him to join the Classics Club, Houtarou's life is turned upside down when he meets Chitanda, a perpetually-inquisitive girl who challenges the boy's easygoing existence. Intrigued by the slightest hint of a mystery afoot, Chitanda doesn't hesitate to pester the reluctant yet highly analytical Houtarou into satisfying her curiosity at every turn, no matter how small the problem. Alongside fellow members Satoshi and Ibara, the group tackles cases ranging from a self-locking classroom door, a strangely-popular library book, and even the shadowy history of the very club to which they belong!

The art style is somewhat similar to each other and Chitanda Eru from Hyouka has the same attitude as Hirasawa Yui from K-On! :>

Naga

Both feature a similar concept of clubs and slice of life, while Hyoka is mystery K-ON! is about music and...tea? Charachter costumization is very similar and some charachters resemble  each other in funny ways. If you love Moe that is reason enough to watch other one...

Love Live! School Idol Project

Love Live! School Idol Project

Honoka Kousaka is heartbroken. Her school, Otonokizaka High, will be forced to shut down unless it can find more prospective students. Luckily, Honoka and her friends have a plan: they'll form an idol group and throw concerts to attract others to join the school! But following through won't be easy – they'll need to find talent, make outfits, find practice space, build stamina and more in hopes of keeping Otonokizaka High alive!

One of the biggest things that makes these two shows similar to one another is three of the main characters. Honoka is exactly like Yui (scatterbrained, but optimist), Umi is like Mio (talented, but gets embarassed very easily), and Kotori is like Mugi (calm, gentle, and sometimes motherly). Throw in the fact that both shows are about girls in music clubs who are starting from scratch (none were part of a music group before), I think that fans of one would really enjoy the other.

MaraRuizu

Both of these shows are about cute school girls who create music, but there is more to this recommendation than that.

Mostly, the a lot of the characters of K-On! and Love Live! are very similar. We have the ditzy lead; the talented artist who is shy and suffers from stage-fright; etcetera.

However there are differences, while K-On! is more focused on characters and has very little actual plot, Love Live! has an important story that continues through-out the series. Love Live! also has so many important characters that the audience simply doesn't get as close to them as in K-On!

All in all, fans of one should be able to enjoy the other.
