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.

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

Kari5 Kari5 says

Both [email protected] 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 shows have a similar theme of low rate but genuine entertainment companies looking to make it big and rookie idols facing the realities of their line of work. One of the highlights was also the complete 2D animations of their performances. 



By her uncle’s request, Nanako is an ordinary high school girl who teams up with her upperclassman Yukari to become their town’s local idols. The two get paid by the town to do interviews at malls, appear on local TV broad casts and hold small live events on department store rooftops.

Only 2 episodes in for Locodol but i think i'll be safe making this recommendation - Both Wake Up Girls and Locodol bring us a close and personal view of the world of struggling regional idols, their failures, successors, and growth - both as individuals and as performers.

I agree, the two are similiar in many ways.  But they're also different.  Locodol is a comedy, Wake Up Girls! is a drama.  Locodol walks the sunny side, while Wake Up Girls! also explores the darker and grittier side of the idol industry.  If you enjoyed one, the other is worth checking out, but you should be aware of the differences so you know what to expect.

Miss Monochrome

Miss Monochrome

Miss Monochrome, an idol who lives in a luxurious castle with her trusty Roomba companion, wants nothing more than to be back in the spotlight like the popular idol Kikuko. But the road to stardom will be fraught with challenges, from finding a trustworthy manager, to getting bit parts on TV, to even getting the media to notice her glorious talents and...

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.
