In both shows you see the struggle of two girls trying to succed. They both start off with the left and often they end up being hated by the rest. Nothing lets them down and they as they try to exel at what they do, proving to everyone that there is more to them then meets the eye. Even though one is about a circus performer and the other about an actress, both shows are about searching for stardom
Both of these animes feature prominent female characters, and quick character development both on the part of story telling and on the part of the character growing into themselves as part of the story.
During a sunny afternoon, Kirarin spots a helpless turtle stuck in a tree.

The guy's name is Seiji and he is actually a famous star! 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. Hiroto's words don't deter her, however; and instead, Kirarin decides to be with Seiji by entering the idol world! However, becoming an idol isn't all fun and games, it's fierce competition, hard work, and filled with rivals!
Kirarin revolution and Skip Beat! are both about girls getting into the famous world because of boys. Both girls have their own way of doing things.
Skip Beat! is like Kirarin Revolution just as Kirarin Revolution is like Skip Beat! in many ways . Kyoko and Kirarin both enters the world of showbiz. They meet a coulpe of men who are totally unpredictable. Although Kirarin Reolution had 100+ episodes, I'm telling you, you will not stop watching it. Like skip beat, you want to watch the series even though there are no episodes left. If you liked one, you'll definitely like the other.
Kotoko Aihara has always been in love with Naoki Irie; he’s tall, handsome, and rumored to be the most intelligent student in Japan – who wouldn’t be? Only one thing stands in the way of a relationship with Irie: Kotoko is ditzy and is at the bottom set of her school, and Irie-kun hates nothing more than ditzy, stupid girls. When disaster strikes and Kotoko is forced to move in with Irie-kun’s family, she suddenly sees her chance to bridge the gap. After all, even cool, super-intelligent guys must have a soft spot, right?
Upbeat and optimistic heroine? Check.
Tsundere male lead? Check.
Endless moments of "Just kiss her already!" ? CHECK!
Though these two series end up in very different directions, I think with such a similar set-up it would be difficult to enjoy one and not the other. Check it out!
Both have an very upbeat and persistant protagonist that will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Both of the male leads are very handsom, sought out men that refuse to show their feelings for the protagonist, even to the point of being pretty mean to them.
Other than that, the animation is pretty similar, and they both have a similar overall feel. I am honestly shocked that more people haven't made this recommendation yet.
Lemon Angel used to be a popular band in Japan, until a year ago; at that time, all of the members of the band, except for Miki Suwa, mysteriously disappeared. In the present, Tomo Minaguchi is a first year high school student who was friends with Lemon Angel’s song writer, Yui Kono, before she passed away. When music producer Ryuuta Kogure approaches her to audition for a new Lemon Angel group, Tomo agrees in order to fulfill Yui’s wish. The competition is fierce – will Tomo have what it takes to become the newest member of Lemon Angel?
Yukino had it all. Brilliant, athletic, popular and pretty, she was the perfect school girl with many friends and admirers. But then one fateful day she met her match: a handsome young man named Arima. Now, not only is he beating her at her own game, she's becoming more and more dismayed to learn that she's developing her first real feelings of romance. Can Yukino maintain her model student appearance, or will love ruin all her plans?
This is one of those gut feeling recommendations. These two shows have very different plots, but the relationships the characters have with each other along with their interactions are similar in both shows. So, if you cared for the characters in one show I would suggest you check out the other for a similar feel to a different situation.
