Follow the adventures of Aria's young apprentice, Akari, as she learns the tricks of the trade from her beautiful senior, Alicia.

SunshinexKite

Both anime are slow paced relaxing animes with a main character that wants to do better at what they love doing.(Akari from Aria with being a Gondalier and Miu from Piano with being a Pianist)

Hitohira

Hitohira

Asai Mugi's everyday life is very much impacted by a singular problem: she suffers from extreme shyness. Her sole friend Touyama Kayo would like to help her out as they've just entered high school, but Mugi's shyness is the sort that steals her voice entirely. It is too bad for Mugi that a freak shout on her part attracted the attention of Nono Ichinose. Nono is on a mission to save her Drama Research Society, and she isn't prepared to accept shyness as excuse from on-stage performances! With a small group of close friends to encourage and educate her, Mugi will be given a chance to be more than she is now. But, can someone so terribly shy really become a stage actress in just a few short months?

Hitohira and Piano both relate the dedication of an average girl to an activity that she put all she has into, in one case the piano, in the other theatre. The animes deal with their daily life, but also show the harships they face in their art, the motivation fluctuation and the importance of support from their friends. both anime have a very similar feel to them, calm and yet passionate.

Kokoro Toshokan

Kokoro Toshokan

With her sisters Inna and Aruto, she strives to uphold the best characteristic of a librarian -- to help users with all her heart. Join young Kokoro as she starts the journey to become a full-fledged librarian, while learning about life, and being the best she can be.

Himitsu

If you enjoyed the light sweetness in Piano, then you'll certainly enjoy Kokoro Library. The events that occur in both anime are never heavy. Theme words that come to mind are: soothing, tranquil, and soft - these seem to be the "feelings" I get from watching either Piano or Kokoro Library. Kokoro Library has more comedic/chibi moments, and more engaging episode events.

Piano no Mori

Piano no Mori
  • Movie (1 ep x 100 min)

As if the piano is not enough to relate the two, both series follow a passionate pianist who must overcome obstacles in the face of friends and rivals alike. Considering that the protagonist in Piano is female while that is not the case in Piano no Mori, the stories are told in very different perspectives while approaching similar conclusions.

Princess Tutu

Princess Tutu

Once there lived an eccentric author called Drosselmeyer who wrote grand tragedies - one of them was the tale of a prince who sealed away an evil raven by breaking his own heart into tiny pieces. However, before the story could be completed, the author died and the tale took on a life of its own. Now, in a town where fiction and reality meet, the story continues on its tragic course with Ahiru, a duck who transforms into the beautiful Princess Tutu in order to restore the prince's heart. But will Ahiru's act of love be enough to defy the story's terrible destiny and lead to a happy ending?

Two cute and sugarsweet raomance/drama stories involving music. While Piano focusses mainly one Piano-music (Hey.... what a coincidence), Princess Tutu focusses mainly on dance. Princess Tutu is more humerous though, has super powers and plays in a whole different world. SO if you want to look for a series like Piano, but a bit omre extreme, check out this one.
