On the day before summer vacation, Ichika discovered an old mirror in an old school building. From within it, the mysterious Manatsu looked out and offered to trade favors: if Ichika will do her "homework" (experience the power of the spiritual life forces and write about her feelings) then she will return the charm that Ichika has lost. As Ichika struggles to absorb the raw power of nature, those who watch from the other side of the mirror eagerly await her decision at the end of trials. Can a 14 year old take on the sins of the world and mend the rifts between nature and humanity?
The main characters of both Uta Kata and Someday's Dreamers are given the ability to use magic, but question its purpose and the meaning behind it, with the search for this meaning being the central focus of the anime. Also, both shows take a sort of small-scale approach to magic, doing things like fixing glass or finding a missing person rather than huge, flashy effects or explosions. Although Uta Kata gets to be quite a bit darker than Dreamers, and is burdened by excessive ecchi shots early on, overall the two anime give off a similar vibe. If you enjoyed one, consider checking out the other.
While extremely different in terms of artwork (Uta Kata has a strong moe'ish style attached to it, and Someday's Dreamers is definitely a lot tamer, with an almost shoujo'ish style), they're both pretty much the same in terms of what the main character has to go through. They both adopt a very unique approach to the extremely overused mahou-shoujo genre in order to tell 2 surprisingly compelling coming-of-age stories. So if you liked one of them, make sure to watch the other!
Neo Venezia, the pride of planet Aqua, is a quaint city filled with canals and easy-going people. Many companies operate their gondolas on the canals, giving tours to tourists and locals alike, but the most famous of them is the Aria Company. Follow the adventures of Aria's young apprentice, Akari, as she learns the tricks of the trade from her beautiful senior, Alicia. Together with her friends Aika and Alice, apprentices of rival companies, and their seniors Akira and Athena, they train their skills as gondoliers, meeting new people and learning new things about the city each day.
Both Someday's Dreamers and Aria are stories of a young girl trying to find her way in a new profession. The two series follow the protagonist as she makes new friends, pursues her apprenticeship, and learns many valuable life lessons. Both are slow paced shows, containing plenty of charmingly sweet moments amid beautiful scenery shots.
Both of these shows follow a girl moving to a new place to pursue the work she's always dreamed of. The format of the two shows is also similar, spending a lot of time on special moments in the lives of the characters, to the point where the main character is often out of the spotlight. This combined with a gentle overall pace lend Aria and Someday's Dreamers a laid-back, introspective feel that works well as a background for the character development that drives each show.
In Japan, one of the greatest idol singers of the time is the beautiful and talented Reika. Her three greatest followers are a varied bunch: religious Akari who loves to sing at her church, independent and self-sufficient Yuki, and the rich and snobby Nozomi. By chance, or possibly fate, the three finally meet at one of Reika's concerts, not knowing of the path they will soon be traveling together. With friendships and hardships in the future, can the girls manage to succeed on the path they will choose?
There is a similar feel to both series. While implying alot of action, both series tend to be quite tame and mainly focusse don personal problems instead of the magic in Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto or the music in Chance Pop Session. Both have a slightly similar humor and distinguised art.

With heartache, happiness, and plenty of determination, Asumi and dozens of talented teenagers now face the greatest challenge of their lives: the test to enter a prestigious space academy, so that they may one day reach out and touch the stars...
Completely different plots, but I just got a similar feel from watching both of these. Both are heavy on character development, though Twin Spica does have a bit more plot. In general, each are about a girl trying to succeed in her chosen field, against all odds. You'll get a light hearted and wonderful feeling after watching each episode of both of these shows. I definitely think if you like one, you would like the other.
Miu is a young, talented pianist with a passion for playing music. Under the guidance of Shirakawa, her teacher, she decides to enter a recital, where she will play an emotional, self-written piece.
Someday's Dreamers and Piano both have a very similar, beautiful animation style.. but more importantly, both are charming, quiet, slow tales of the everyday life of a girl who is trying to succeed, even when it seems impossible. If you've seen one, I really don't think it's possible that you'd dislike the other.
