Uta no Prince-sama: Maji Love 1000%

When Haruka gets the chance to take the entrance exam for Saotome Academy for the Performing Arts, it seems as though she’s one step closer to her dream of composing songs for her favorite singer, Hayato. However, this is no gleeful high school musical experience, and Haruka’s hiding a dreadful secret that may silence her musical ambitions forever. And even if she does get into Saotome, the competition will be more brutal than going on Japan’s Top Idol!

They both are very similar in the concept of idols, and training to be idols. Some character personalities in the two animes are closely related. The main difference is that Uta No Prince Sama is a reverse harem around Nanami, whereas Dream Festival! is more similar to slice of life in saying it's really focused on the life of the idols.

Both of these anime about a group of young lads trying to make it in the idol industry. Both anime have the boys attending a certain school for idols that was started by a production company. Both anime include a mixture of comedy and drama, usually generating from something in the boys' pasts. If you liked one, check out the other, especially if you liked the singing and dancing.

Both shows are about idols that get more awesome with special cards to enhance their performances! Aikatsu has girl idols and Dream Festival has boy idols. If you like idol anime these 2 are sure to please.

Magical idol boys is what brings these two anime together. Both anime are set in a school-type atmosphere where the boys shape their talents. While one only has magic during the Dream-Fes, the other has magic whenever the boys perform. And perform they do. If you liked the music and comedy/drama of one, go check out the other.

If you enjoy it, then, you might also enjoy the other one. Since they are both about an unit and their life in general, and their rivalry against other units, music and idols, you might enjoy them both. There is also some comedy and the hard life of being an idol !
