Both of these shows are about a large group of girls who wish to become popular idols. Most of the girls have never met before so the shows are about them becoming friends and facing idol-related challenges together. If you enjoyed one, you'd probably enjoy the other as well.

shikikywketsuki shikikywketsuki says...

the main theme here is idols! so just by that it is clear that there are going to be alot of similarites, but there is with any other idol anime. but with these two animes they are both about a rather large group of girls who start being idols for a greater good e.g. bringing entertainment to the world or saving there school from closing down. which ever one you watch you will see the character development form just normal girls to idols.

It both has very cheerful and talented girls who try their best to save something. For the girls in Love Live! School Idol Project, they are all doing their best to help their school gain more applicants so their school doesn't close down; in ABK0048, the girls are doing their hardest to save the people of planets enjoy entertainment and letting them have fun, even though it means risking their lives. Therefore, AKB0048 is a good similar anime to watch if you've liked Love Live! School Idol Project!!!

They both include idols mainly, they are both about a group of girls who want to become a big idol group together! I also thinj some of the character personalities are pretty similar Nagisa = Honoka? Anyway I think that if you enjoyed on you should enjoy the other, as long as you like idols you should be fine!

K-On!

K-On!

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!

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 MaraRuizu says...

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.

Madoka Madoka says...

Love Live and K-on are quite a like as Both series are soft feeling and light, so if you enjoy a not so serious light series they will both do well.

Of course they are both focused around the music theme, whilst Love Live does has a small bit of serious elements to it's story both series develop in a very similar style. Another thing is the characters from each are quite alike, The main of course being Yui and Honoka but you might notice a lot of the other characters on the side share simularites.

If you enjoy the light feeling, enjoy a music focus theme and like a nice group of characters both should appeal to you as much as each other. Love live i say is for the ones who like a bit more music whilst k-on is more for them who like so side comedy as well, but both are quite similar regardless.

AngelBeatsYui AngelBeatsYui says...

Both of these animes are based around a music school club, they are both comedies (sort of) and include Slice of Life features...also some of the characters are pretty similar Yui is quite similar to Honoka (being an slight airhead). Anyway moving on, both series are pretty close the only main difference is the type of club they are in (K-on is the light music club and Love live is a bit like a idol club)

Love Live and Tari Tari, have the same sort of feel in the sense that both start out with this girl who has a crazy idea about starting a singing group, in the case of Love Live, it's school idols to save the school, and in Tari Tari it's a choir club to make the one girl's dreams come true her senior year.  I would say that so far, Tari Tari is the better show of the two and has much wider appeal, but Love Live is pretty decent.  If you liked one of the two, and you're looking for something similar to watch, it wouldn't hurt to check out the other. 

As for Love Live, I would say give it until the end of the 3rd episode to make a full judgement.  I'm currently watching it as it's airing, and I was only somewhat intrigued until this week (the 3rd ep), but now I'm pretty interested to find out where it goes from here.

Etue Etue says...

Both anime while the execution is similar are quite different in tone and eventual content. Notably all characters in Tari Tari are third years and this brings a slightly different feeling to the anime. Tari Tari is more dramatic and less joyful but still has a setting with great resemblence. If you are looking for a emotionally heavier Love live, check Tari Tari out. If you are looking for a fluffier Tari Tari check Love Live out. 

Madoka Madoka says...

Tari Tari and Love Live both use a similar theme of the schools being in their final years before closing, whilst they differ a little in how the music theme is used and developed they strike very similar elements with one another. Whilst love live is a little more lighter on the drama and a bit more on the happy, light/fluffy side of the coin, Tari Tari is a bit more serious with how it's story is built and develops. Despite this they still have lot's in common which im sure will become apparent quite early, if one was enjoyable for you, you should give the other a try, just remember that Love Live is a bit more laid back whilst Tari Tari is a bit more serious, but both are very good series and enjoyable.

Yet again both of these animes are Idol animes, meaning there is always a great deal of chracter development which both of these anime's show very well. another thing these both show well is the real-life side to idols and how competivtive it is and how things dont always go right.

Kari5 Kari5 says...

Both of these idol shows have a similar feel; a large group of girls working hard to make it in the idol world. If you enjoyed one, you'd probably enjoy the other.

Etue Etue says...

Love live is basically Idolmaster where the school of the main characters becomes a central point. This does however limit the range of ages that Love live covers and as such all characters are of a highschooler age. Both anime have CGI dance sequences and the actual idol seiyuu's singing at times. Both anime have small bits of teenage angst and share common tropes in this.

On the brash president's orders, the dissatisfied manager Matsuda heads out to scout raw talent. Matsuda makes a fateful encounter with a certain girl...

One of the similarities of these shows is that in order for the company in case of Wake Up, Girls! and the school for Love Live! School Idol Project to not be closed, they had an idea from the famous idol groups in the respective shows to produce and create an idol group of their own. Secondly, both shows show the struggles and hardships in forming an idol group, how they will work together, and on how they can improve themselves for them to become more popular. Lastly, both shows have great songs for audience to enjoy.
