Synopsis:

Nana Komatsu is on her way to Tokyo; now she can finally be with her boyfriend after a year of dating long-distance! On the train there, Nana Komatsu meets Nana Osaki – a girl who shares her name but seems to be everything Nana Komatsu is not; cool, street-wise, and a punk rocker. The two hit it off and spend the entire journey getting to know each other, but when they get to Tokyo, circumstance separates them seemingly forever. However, fate is not finished with these two. Whilst hunting for a place to live the two Nanas again cross paths. They decide to share a flat and become best friends in no time. Nana K. must learn to be independent and mature, while Nana O. works on becoming famous with her band; but together, they will learn about love and loss, and the growth that comes with it.

It's a strange recommendation, I realize, but in my opinion Nana and Chobits have kind of the same humor and are both very dramatic. While Chobits isn't as in depth as Nana, I'm sure you'll enjoy both of them anyways!

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 GlassMask are very similar as the main character is trying to fullfill their dream having support of close friends.While nana is more focused on friendship ( between nana and nana :P) Glass mask is more focused on rivalry and passion to archeive best actress 

They are both very good animes :) some of my favourites! If u like one your'll love the other ^^!

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.
