Bakuman goes into how making manga and how hard it can actaully be but this going into anime, of how making anime and the things they need to do to get what they want.
I recomend them from both ways because i think you'll enjoy both from the two ways because they're really amazing(even if Shirobako on first episode) and both make you understand more about the author who makes the manga or the anime.
And Shirbako is of mostly animation/making, girls and bakuman is of mostly mangaka boys but still good though. :D
Bakuman. and Shirobako deal with the Japanese entertainment industries we came to love: manga and anime, showing us how these are made.
They also show the backstage, lives, hopes, dreams, struggles, and joys of the industry professionals, especially those who are starting.
Both have really good characters that you can easily empathize with and transmit a warm happy feeling.
I think if you like one you will probably like the other.
Both anime are about people trying to achive their dream at creating something they love. In Shirobako, the subject matter is anime; while in Bakuman, the subject matter is manga. Both series show the amount of work and effort put into creating and anime or manga, and how the protagonists struggle against the various obstacles and complications in their way. While Bakuman has a romantic sideplot (while Shirobako doesn't), I do think fans of one series will still enjoy the other.
Enthusiastic editor-in-chief Hana, serious Aki and their friends love manga so much that they've decided to start up a brand new manga magazine! Together, the new editors must find mangaka to work with, schedule photo shoots and perfect their typesetting, amongst other things. Little did the girls know that running a manga magazine would be more difficult...

Both anime are comedic workplace anime with female leads, focused on making manga and anime, respectively. They both have big casts, and tackle roughly the same issues, like keeping deadlines, dealing with creators and the inner workings of the business.
Mangirl! is more zany, whereas Shirobako is more grounded, but they should both be enjoyable for those who want more of an insider view into anime and manga.
Both are about someone working in the anime business, both shows what they have to go through to get to a certain stages. Mangirl is the lighter option of the two and focuses around the more comedic side, Shirobako has this quality but at some points it is more hands down about the fact that it is a anime company. So I think if you liked one, check out the other...like now...maybe.

Work place setting, and following their dreams. The two stories mirror the struggles of production and creation.
Although Shirobako is mainly focused on anime creation and New Game on videogame creation, they both let you in on how the industry, works. New game being more of a cute comedy and shirobako a more acurate like portrayal. The atmosphere of teamwork in both is what makes them similar in my view.
