Both Nana and Gokinjo Monogatari revolve around the arts/music/fashon scence and romance. The romance is pretty heavy in both animes as well as the strong female protagonists. The supporting chracters are amazing and really add depth to the plot. Gokinjo is more light hearted than Nana, but it still has great drama and wonderful friendships. If you liked Paradise Kiss you will definately enjoy Gokinjo and Nana.

The only dissapointing about both animes is that they are not long enough.

Glass Mask (2005)

Glass Mask (2005)

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.

Both Nana and Toradora! have multiple characters with many facets that run deep. The relationships between the characters and the internal struggles that each goes through are beautiful and painful. Both series are a part of the very few that have made me cry. Nana takes place in a more adult world while Toradora! has more of a youthful feel, but both are easily-relatable, mature stories.

Kirarin Revolution

Unfortunately, Seiji's best friend and partner, Hiroto, intrudes on her fantasies claiming that she'd never reach the level of Seiji, and that she should stay away from him.

However, becoming an idol isn't all fun and games, it's fierce competition, hard work, and filled with rivals!

Both Nana and Kirarin Revolution are about girls(or women) who want to become singers(or stars...or whatever) and they both have lots of romance.But,Kirarin Revolution is a very childish show and Nana...well...isn't the mist childish thing ever.

Nagi no Asukara and Nana definitely are in different genres, and deal with two groups of people in very different situations. My gut feeling tells me, though, if you enjoyed the highly-charged emotional atmosphere of either show, you'd probably also like the other. Both will make you experience feels.
