Newly landed in Kyushu, he finds most of his classmates instantly antagonistic towards him and suspicious of his elite background. Only two other students seem not to mind who he is – the infamously abrasive Sentarou and the gentle Ritsuko. Unbeknownst to Kaoru they have a passion for jazz, and they're about to pull him out of his stiff, joyless world into theirs of loose, swinging self-expression. Through friendship and frustration, love and despair, Kaoru will learn that life has a wealth of experiences in store for him!
In both animes, there is a strong love for the music they make and play. In La Corda there is a focus on classical music and Sakamichi focuses on jazz, but they both depict music the same way. They both have plenty of romance and drama in them too. If you liked one, you'd like the other.

As if their arrival was determined by fate, Miaka is revered as the Priestess of Suzaku, the savior of their warring country, who was destined to arrived in a flash of light, from a land far away. Betrayal, love, and heartache accompany this fantasy-filled tale of friendships torn apart, and hope that never fades.
Fushigi Yugi is longer, and thus has more space to really develop romance. Plus it's all about the love between Miaka and Tamahome; even though everybody else seems to be in love with her, she has this eternal unconditional love for Tamahome that is unshakable. La Corda d'Oro, on the other hand, doesn't really have romance per se; all the guys are in love with the protagonist, but she doesn't really fall in love with anyone (what the series does is provide different interactions so that we can chosse our favorite "guy" and cheer for him). Fushigi Yugi is a billion times better, but if you're bored and want something more, you'll like Corda. If tou liked Corda, don't miss on Fy, you'll love it!
A world where art becomes magic. In this world, people who can inspire passion with their Magic Arts are called Artistas, and are employed in show business. In Hoshinomori Private Magical Arts High School, where Artistas are taught, a strange new student named Ohana Aigasaki transfers into the school. Ohana is placed on the planning committee for the school's yearly Hoshinomori Summer Festa cultural festival. She spends her romantic school life with six other boys who aim to become entertainers in the future and alongside Ohana, to be the school's Artista Prince and Princess, only chosen once a year.
The whole atmosphere is veeeeery similar, especially in terms of the soundtrack and determined main character.
The main similarity is that both of these are reverse harems that like to focus on the individual talents of each of their characters.
Also, art, determination, and self-improvement will be found in both.
