Saiunkoku Monogatari

Saiunkoku Monogatari

In an ancient and mythological land called Saiunkoku, the people have begun to recover from a period of war and famine; thus, when an official from the imperial court offers the impoverished and beautiful Shuurei more money than she could ever dream of in return for a favor, she jumps at the chance. What she doesn’t count on, however, is being asked to become a concubine to the recluse Emperor and help him transform into a better leader. What’s more, the Emperor shows little intelligence, seems to have no interest in ruling, and is rumored to prefer men. One thing’s for certain: Shuurei has her work cut out for her!

Both are about a strong female protagonist who has been wronged and are dealing with the aftermath of that. They are also both involved with a love triangle where one of the boys is mean and immature and arrogant and loved by tons of women. The other boy is mean at first but gets better as time goes on and is also loved by tons of women.

To-Y

To-Y

To-Y is the handsome singer of GASP, an indie band with a bad reputation. But mere days before their first big gig, To-Y is approached by an agent who wants him to be the next big thing...a ridiculously popular teen idol. Offers like that don't come everyday, and the music industry is harsh to those who try to rebel against it. But can he sell out and abandon his band mates when they're on the brink of fame? Exactly. And after that, it becomes a matter pitting artistic integrity and rebellion against commercial easy-listening with full industry backing...

Rivalries abound in both shows, Skip Beat! and To-y highlight the struggles endured in the climb to fame. This includes dealing with rivals, inner turmoil, and other drama. If you like the band/fame aspect in one show you should give the other a shot.

First of all, the genre and the styles are very similar and both animes have a lots of shoujoish cutesyness and comedy though nozaki-kun is more comedic, but still has moments of a true shoujo genre <3

If you liked Skip Beat! there is a high chance you might like Niji-iro Prism Girl (or other way round!) since they are both about idols that are determined to show that they are better than ordinary idols in order to reach their goals (In Skip Beat! the main character tries to get revenge on an ex-boyfriend and in Niji-iro Prism Girl she tries to make her dead mother happy by following in her footsteps and achieving greater things than her mother.)
