Both are about "school" bands but in Fuuka it is ONLY a school band AT FIRST but in Anonymous Noise there is a school band which *SPOILER AHEAD* secretely is also new popular band in Japan. *SPOILER ENDS*

But definetely Fuuka > Anonymous Noise

Both are music heavy romance anime that don't really on comedy or fan service to draw people in or lighted the seriousness of the themes.

I really enjoyed Fuuka. You know...slice of life...Rock Band Dream type of Anime is one in a million in the Anime world, and I thought Fuuka was mildly entertaining and even funny at some times. The camera Angles were smooth and well played out. Good storyline, great Animation and a vast arry of colors. Good title and is worth watching again.

Sabure Sabure says...

Both series deal with a budding yet compliacted romance influence through a high school band gaining in popularity. Both Alice and Fuuka are good lead characters with amazing vocals and passion for their music. Their love lives need some work, though.

Both animes involve singing girls.This anime i basically about to women who meet on a train. As they talk on the train they learn they share the same name. They are both completely differnt from eachother but they get along.

KuroOkami KuroOkami says...

Like the other shows in this genre, both Fukumenkei Noise and Beck are both music and romance heavy anime. Both of the series revolve around the lives of members of a new or forming band, and particularly the love interests that often can take place in these situations. They both have solid music heavy soundtracks, a plus in my opinion.

They also both seem to be able to handle the topic and issues of romance without having to throw in a lot of comedy or fan service of your typical ecchi harems or rom-com that have been completely overdone. Yet it still has it's genre trademark flaws as well, like the clueless love interests and general unrequited love which lasts most of if not all of the entire series.

Overall, I highly recommend both of these anime.

NerdConsultant NerdConsultant says...

both are excellent Music Anime which do a good job showing the songwritting process and the real sense of what the music means to the characters and ties it well into the drama, both are worth a watch even if i would say Beck is better in pretty much most catergories

What this anime for similar relationship dynamics between Nino and Momo.

Both of these animes offer somewhat standoffish primary male love interests, who grew up with the lead female protagonist. The boy then leaves the girl behind in their youth and they meet again in highschool, where the females explores their feelings for them and they in return, act somewhat cold.

Both of these center around lost childhood loves, and the more complicated relationships that result after a reunion.

Both of these shows are about a strong-headed girl who tries to break into show business/performance for the wrong reasons, but nevertheless finds a home there.  Both shows focus heavily on childhood crushes gone wrong and unrequitted love.  In each show, the girl is helped along by a guy who watches over her, protects her, supports her, and loves her, while his efforts go (mostly) underappreciated.  While the girls' circumstances are quite different, the relationships she has with those around her, as well as the show business element make these shows feel very similar to me.  

Full Moon wo Sagashite

Full Moon wo Sagashite

Twelve year old Mitsuki's desire is to become a singer. She has the talent and a beautiful voice, but she also has a throat tumor which threatens to rob her of her gift of song. As if things weren't bad enough, two shinigami inform Mitsuki that she only has one year left to live. However, all is not lost, for they make a deal that if she goes with them, they will help realize her dream by changing her into a healthy 16-year-old, who is able to sing and apply for auditions.

In both of these shows, a girl who longs deeply for a missing childhood friend uses song as a way to find him again.  Each show provides the girl with a "guardian angel" (figuratively or literally), who goes above and beyond to help her achieve her singing dreams.  These shows have so many other things in common, including overbearing and restrictive parents, throat disease, secretive pop stars, and unrequitted love.  While Full Moon wo Sagashite has a heavy magic element and Anonymous Noise does not, if you liked one of these shows for any of these other reasons, then I'm sure you'd like the other.

Lovely Complex

Lovely Complex

Lovely Complex is a story of a boy and a girl. The girl, Koizumi Risa, is much taller than the average Japanese girl; and the boy, Atsushi Otani, is much shorter than the average Japanese boy. Due to their immense difference in size and constant bickering with each other, the duo is unwillingly the school’s comic relief. As Risa and Otani continue to provide endless laughter for the masses, their friendship develops; and with that, so does Risa’s feelings for Otani...

Both of these shows are high school romances involving a short boy with a height complex and a taller girl.  Both shows rely heavily on music to bring the main characters closer together.  The themes of unrequited love, rejection, and love triangles are central to both stories.  While Lovely Complex has much more comedy and Anonymous Noise has much more singing, if you liked one of these shows, you would probably like the other.

Given

Given

Somehow, the guitar that he used to love to play and the basketball games that he found so fun just lost their appeal... That was until Ritsuka Uenoyama randomly met Mafuyu Sato. Ritsuka had started losing his passion for music in his everyday life, but then he hears Mafuyu sing for the first time. The song resonates with his heart and the distance between them starts to change.

Although one is a BL type of anime, you will find it surprising how they can be both so similar and both so different. Both anime revolves around messages in music to the person they love.

Both anime has a guitarist that is very crucial to the plot as they influence the vocalist's thoughts and actions in both animes. Both anime has a somewhat sort of a love triangle although in Given, one of the members in the love triangle died, resulting in bringing together the other two. In Anonymous Noise, the guitarist tries to help the main character by encouraging her to sing his songs to find her lover even though he was in love with her.

In both animes, the guitarist was jealous of the guy who had the main characters' love and they just want the main character to sing only about them, to sing only to them, but not the other guy.

I recommend both ways because these two animes are related in terms of a relationship crisis, music, and the two-character relationship between the vocalist and the guitarist.

Kono Oto Tomare!

Kono Oto Tomare!

Down to its last member, the koto club will accept anyone who is interested in the traditional Japanese instrument. But when a delinquent and a prodigy player sign up, finding harmony isn’t going to be easy—especially not with ensemble competitions looming around the corner. With enough time and some incredible skill at the strings, perhaps this motley crew can strike a chord with the judges.

shojo, music, drama, comedy and romance? yes pls. (altho technically 'kono oto tomare' is labelled as a shonen but watever, it very much has the feel of a shojo). the shojo music pairing is rly nice to see. they both feature some good music and cute characters. both also delves into the characters backstory, emotional and personal development which is nice to see. if u like ur cheesy, cliche but freakin adorable/enjoyable shojo stories give this a go.
