The iDOLM@STER

The iDOLM@STER

Everybody knows it's tough being an idol, especially the girls at 765 Production. Made up of thirteen young ladies, the group constantly attempts to improve its image by taking new promo shots and booking the best gigs possible, whether it's being a concert star or a quirky cooking show guest. Led by the kind-hearted and determined Producer, these talented performers such as twins Mami and Ami, quiet Yukiho, clumsy Haruka and gifted singer Chihaya will do their best to become the best idols around.

These two animes are very similar as both revolve around a small companys trying to make it big in the idol Industy.

-where you can see that the main story is about the girls character development it also reflects alot on the money and business side, which quite a few Idol/music animes miss.

-Both these two anime show direct competition with other Idol groups

Both IdolM@ster and Wake Up Girls are about a large all-female idol group from Japan.What makes these two idol shows particularly similar is how they look at the idol industry. Many other idol shows focus mostly on the idols themselves, but these shows show the trials of learning to be popular idols in (mostly) realistic situations. So if you're looking for idol shows on the slightly more realistic/more mature side, check these out.

Both are anime in the idol genre. While AKB 0048 is quite a different take on it all together. Both anime are on the exact opposites of the IDOL anime genre. Wake up, Girls tries to be as realistic as it can while AKB0048 takes place in a sci-fi setting. Both anime can be interesting if you like the idol genre enough.

One of the similarities of these shows is that in order for the company in case of Wake Up, Girls! and the school for Love Live! School Idol Project to not be closed, they had an idea from the famous idol groups in the respective shows to produce and create an idol group of their own. Secondly, both shows show the struggles and hardships in forming an idol group, how they will work together, and on how they can improve themselves for them to become more popular. Lastly, both shows have great songs for audience to enjoy.

Both anime feature a girl who aspires to become an idol. While Wake up girls is realistic. Miss Monochrome is not. As as short Miss Monochrome focuses on the titular character and her passionate but often peculiar attempts to step into the idol world.

If you like passionate idol characters and don't care for the realism or the fact that it's a short then Miss Monochrome is for you. You will eventually suppot her aspirations as she struggles for succes.
