Both animes have a female protagonist who is trying to make a name for herself in showbiz, with acting in Skip Beat and voice acting in Girlish Number.

Both protagonists are very similar, and have bad tempers which they try to hide and a competitive side, causing lots of drama!

If you like one, you should definitely check out the other!

Both Shows deal with the ups and downs of the entertainment industry. Following the main cast as they deal with finding themselves and where they belong.

Shirobako

Shirobako

Aoi will never forget how she felt the day her high school animation club’s labor of love was shown at the cultural festival. The sense of awe and the feeling of accomplishment that came with completing their very first project are exactly what encouraged Aoi and her club mates to enter the animation industry in the first place. But two years later Aoi has graduated, and now that she works as a production assistant for a big-name animation studio, the daunting reality of her job has somewhat diminished her enthusiasm. Despite the long hours and the punishing schedule, Aoi still hopes to fulfill the promise she and her club friends Ema, Shizuka, Misa, and Midori made: to one day reunite and make a real animated feature of their own as professionals!

I am suprised that no one recommended Shirobako. Both anime focus on anime industry. Shirobako about anime production and well crafted anime. Girlish number focus mainly on voice acting

Nicknames Nicknames says...

While they focus on a different field, both shows portrays what it takes to make an anime realistically but without getting too cynical (though Girlish Number is a bit harsh from time to time). They also share the same feeling and, even if I enjoyed Shirobako more than Girlish Number, fans of one will definitely like the other.

Both shows feature a girl who starts their career as a seiyuu and has to learn what it takes to make it big. The tone of each show is different though, since the main protagonist of Koe de Oshigoto has to voice erotic games while the one in Girlish Number only voices regular anime.

All in all, if you liked Girlish Number and you want something similar but lewder then give Koe de Oshigoto a try. Likewise, if you liked Koe de Oshigoto and you want something similar but less explicit then Girlish Number is for you.

Both shows feature a rookie voice actress as she learns what it takes to be successful. The tone of each show is slightly different since Girlish Number portrays the subject in a realistic albeit slightly cynical way while REC adds some romance to lighten the mood.

Despite the differences between each show, fans of one will definitely enjoy the other.

This has a group of people collaborating on making a video game and has romance to replace action. It also has a similar story line and characters
