Exactly the same everything, drawings, genre, harlem and all but better because of they are idiols!
/! For sure if you like one, you WILL like the other /!
- Same romance ambiance, where you have a (naive) girl, who will charmed all boys. (bishonen)
- Musical ambiance, just in Kin no Corda it's just instrumental ambiance, and Uta no prince it's songs, dances, compositions.
- Same bishonen style : cute boy, friendly boy, cold guy, schizophrenic guy.
- the heroine begin with novice skill, but she become better (the best).
the Only DIFFERENCE : in Uta no prince you don't have the fantastic touch, the heroine have real skill, and not a fairy behind her.
It's OBLIGED you like one, you will like the other.
One girl surrounded by a group of handsome guys. Both invlove schools for musicians.
In his type of argument, music, more bishonens, harem reverso.
Both are anime about music & are reverse harem.Both are made from visual novels of the same names.If you like one then you will definitely like other one.
Both anime are musical.Also, there is only the one main heroine surrounded by bishies!
Both are harems...
Reverse harems, with a somewhat timid female lead. However, Kiniro focuses more on classical music, while UtaPri is about a school for pop idols. If you like one, you'll definitely like the other.
They are actually very similar, uto no prince sama is basicly a bording school of music, composing and singing, where a girl comes to the school, and there a a few boys with differnt personalities, that all admire her! Then there is kiniro no corda a bording school of again music but this time focusing on intrumetal music. And a girl again is surronded by boys, and helping her! kiniro has a twist of magic though! But if you like one you probily you would like the other! Oh and i LOVE both of the sound tracks, also they have pretty good art!
Same genres, reverse harem and music
Both series are reverse harems based on an otome game so expect to see some hot n' steamin' guys complete with tsunderes and shotas! Both are music related as well.. For Kiniro no Corda, the guys are talented mucisians while Uta no Prince-sama, the guys will be aspiring idols~
True that there are fewer guys present in UtaPri, but hey.. they look even hotter than the guys of La Corda! (*/∇＼*)ｷｬ
♡Girls...get ready to fall in love!♡
Both are animes about music and have harem in it. they are both very similiar.
Both focus on music while Kiniro no Corda is into instruments and Uta no Prince-sama have musicians. Both also have reverse harem.
Both female protagonists must learn some form of music (violin and composing) with little or no former experience. The two go through a period of little self-confidence, and have to overcome that with a lot of practice and learning. Some jealousy is directed towards the two.
They are surrounded by male students who help them and they befriend. Both happen to be prodigious in their respective music schools and have to compete with other students. The competing musicians and idols are admired by the rest of the student body. Also, these two animes encourage that love of music is enough motivation.
It's hard for me to not think about either of these series when watching them tbh.
Both series features music as a prominent theme throughout each episode with the main female protagonist trying to learn the style and art of it.
Both series features a prominent male cast who each specifies in music with different personalities and appearances. They make special bonds with the main female protagonist throughout the series as well.
Both series also contain elements of drama, comedy, music, and romance.
Both animes about music. Also there is one main character surrounded with group of guys.
It got very romantic because every boys that a girl met feel in love and try to get her love them, have very good music to listening, there a lot of handsome/cute guys in the shows!!!! ^.^
Both anime are about music... in both anime it turns around a girl who loves music and is taking music lessons... during the episodes the two girls will meet diferent guys that will fall in love with her but one of them is more important to her <3
•both are a reverse harem
•both girl protagonist are naive and timid and surrounded by beautiful Bishōnen boys
•both anime contain music, where the protagonist and supporting boy cast compete to be the best at there respective fields
•both anime supporting characters develop feelings for the protagonist girl and fall in love with her as the story develops
•both have very simple, plot, which can be overlooked by the music being played in both animes
•both anime girls struggle with criticism among there peer groups
•they are very similar in the reverse harem, bishounen, romantic, musical way, if you liked one you would probably like the other.
The music situation and girl position in harem are similar. Both don't go to detailed into the romance and the music used it pretty good. If you like Primo passo u will 100% prince-sama, if you have watched prince-sama and not Primo passo I think you should still watch it even though it might not be as thrilling as doing it vise-versa.
They're both alike in its genres = music, romance, comedy.
They do have the same story plot that shows how music can change anyone and to strive hard for what we really dream of.
Both have a reverse harem structure, where the sweet, "natural" girl is surrounded by very talented, very good-looking men. Both focus on music, with Primo Passo featuring more classical music, and Uta Pri featuring pop music. Neither one has a very great plot structure - you won't be surprised by anything that happens, and the obstacles encountered by the protagonists are overcome fairly easily.
Both are about music. In La Corda, it's more about classical music. I heard a couple of songs that I used to listen when I was younger. It's kind of nostalgic. And in Prince-Sama, it's modern music that you could dance on =P. For me, it was a world to discover of high ranked talent. It made myself wanted to learn more. ^^'
Both of these are Reverse Harem anime and both take place in a music school, involving music students trying to progress as musicians and many male students are effected by one girls determination and love of music.
If you liked UtaPri, then you're pretty much guaranteed to like La Corda D'Oro as well. Along with being a reverse harem type anime based off of a video game, it also embraces the musical theme, though in La Corda, it's centered around instrumental music instead of vocals. La Corda also contains a wide selection of handsome guys with unique personality types. I think the heroine in La Corda is a slight bit more interesting as well.
Both are reverse harems that circle around music! ♪
School of music. A lot of cute boys who are engaged with the protagonist. Oh,yeah,they are similar. :-)
They both have reverse harem, and they are both about music
Both UtaPri and Kiniro no Corda are essentially anime based around music appreciation. Kiniro no Corda takes this a little more seriously whereas UtaPri likes to focus more on the comedy, but both really like to delve into how music can be life changing. Also, both mc's begin as novice to music, but through the series begin to grow through their love for it. Both are also an odd sort of reverse harem in that all the pretty bishies fall for your girl, but romance almost never plays a part in the show. Also, both are FANTASTIC
-all the guys characters crush on the girl
-music themed anime
Kiniro No Corda and Uta no Prince-sama both have the harem AND the music aspect. In Kiniro no Corda there's more using instruments while Uta no Prince-sama has instruments and vocals. The messages given through the music are absolutely astounding but I have to say that so far in Uta no Prince-sama the messages in Kiniro no Corda are much more powerful and have larger meaning. As for the harem aspect, in both there are also similar characters such as Azuma Yunoki and Jinguji Ren. Maybe even Ittoki Otoya and Kazuki Hihara. Either way, both are very strong in their music aspects and they have a lot of similiarities. The plots are also very good in my opinion and I reccommend that if you liked either, watch the other.
Both series focus on the «discovery» of the true concept of music by music students. While the theme might be the same, these two shows have completely different moods. In Nodame you'll spend half the time laughing, while in Corda d'Oro it's mostly a serious mood sometimes bordering on depressive. Not to say that Corda is a bad anime... I liked it very much. It's just that it has a completely different take on music. Other major difference: in Nodame there are many interesting and different characters and many plot twists... while in Corda there are less characters, who aren't very different, and the story isn't that unpredictable.
This anime are similar becouse they're about music ;)
Both revolve around classical music.
Classical music that they both have are very nice....
La Corda DOro similar to Nodame Cantabile most because of the music in both of them. The characters are alike, exept the part that in LCD there is the magic touch... I enjoyed both of them because of the music~
they both revolve around classical music and have the main characters learning so that they become good in their chosen fields. though nodame cantabile is more of a love story then Corda d'oro (reverse harem). both are excellent shows
They're both in essence about music, although they have somewhat different approaches. Nodame is more comedy while La Corda is more drama / romance. I'd also say that Nodame is a bit more serious about the music part since there's no magic involved and all that but basically both series are passionate and stresses the joy of playing it.
They are both centred around classical music. Though Kaho plays the Violin and Nodame plays the Piano. There's also a lot of romantic moments in both of the animes.
If you liked La corda d'oro, you sohuld definitely watch Nodame Cantabile. It is funnier, but it also has to do with classical music and it has a pretty good story. I recommend it to the ones that like that sort of anime.
Both revolve around music related storylines with female leading roles.
Both are romance+comedy genres but I would say in Nodame Cantabile comedy thread is more important than romance, while in La Corda it's just the other way about. Both are about music. Action takes place in high school. Character sets are similiar. Both series are really enjoyable, especially if you like classical music :)
Similarities - classical music, romance, and the desire to become better
they both are related to music, and they are both classical musics. they bothe have romance in it too.
It uses classical music as the core element.
One of the main themes is classical music. Both are romanctic comedies, but La Corga is more shoujo, while Nodame is more josei.
If you love classical music, then you'll enjoy watching both anime. :)
Both of the anime are about clasical music which ia so elegant. Besides,both of them are full of comedy...hehe.So,everytime you watch it,you will feel the excitement ^_^
Both series are about classical music, romance and comedy. As simple as that.
both revolve around music
If you like Kiniro no Corda: Primo Passo, better watch Nodame Cantabile. These shows are pretty similar, especially if you like musical anime. Both of this shows revolve around classical music though Primo Passo's a show that was kinda serious and Nodame Cantabile's something comedy-like, I think they're still similar, yet these shows are worth watching and must watch if you really like music, I'm sure you won't regret watching both of this.
both of them are musical, romance, and light comedy.
Just think of Nodame Cantabile as La Corda d'Oro with a mature spin to it. Both anime revolve heavily around Classical music, although Nodame Cantabile is more serious about it. Both of the main characters play violin also. Both anime take place in school (a music conservatory for Nodame Cantabile).
If you're looking for a more mature and "grown-up" La Corda (minus magic fairies), then this anime's for you.
Nodame-chan is somehow more credible than the fairy skill of Kaho-chan :)
both are romances about musicians, subtle comedies and very nice to watch.
Both series features music as a primary theme that mixes in comedy and drama into the story.
Both series' main protagonists are very talented but also cold towards their peers but deep down cares for those around him. The main female protagonist also has skills and is looking forward to demonstrating them to the world.
Both series takes place at a school like setting featuring students interested in the art of music that explores the genre in its finest form.
maybe the plot is different but this two animes share somethings in common : Female main character with standard abilities surrounded by professional & handsome male group who help her to be better + the fairy thing + school contests
Watching the second episode of Yumeiro Patissiere I kept being reminded of La Corda D'Oro. Sure the fairies have different ways of working between the shows but there's quite a few similarities there otherwise.
meeting "fairy"-like creatures...
having taught by one...
trying to appeal to others...
both are kind of reverse-harem type...
both stories are kinda cliche...
well, the main character of la corda who plans to excel in playing violin also encountered a fairy but instead of sweet fairy, she encountered a music fairy...
The basic theme is different, cooking vs music. But in both anime the main character, both females in a group of other males mostly, strives with their group to be better. The idea of making other happy is shown alot throughout both also the idea that you need to love cooking/music and be happy yourself in order to be good.
Theres the slightest bit of romance and great friendships that start a little iffy. But in a personal opinion i think they were both joyful anime and very worth watching. Hope this helps ;]
These two shows have very similar plots, except Yumeiro Patissiere takes place at a (middle school) pastry school and La Corda D'Oro takes place at a (high school) music academy. Seriously, it's practically the same show.
Both have a girl who attends a school that revolves around skills (one is music, the other is cooking). Both of the founders for the schools had a relationship with a fairy, and so there is a big statue of the fairy at the front of the school. The girl meets a fairy and at first is a bit shocked (Kahoko from Kin. no Corda more so) but then gradually builds a friendship and trust with them. The fairies help the girl with a skill that they are absolutely terrible at, but then the girl slowly get better and can do things on her own.
The fairies, the competitions, and the characters are all quite similar. (And that statue!)
I liked Yumeiro better.
Faries/Spirits that help an inexperienced main character hone in on their artistic potential in order to build skill and technique.
La Corda and Yumeiro are both Shoujo and Reverse Harem and involve a girl who joins a competition, though only a "newbie” in what the competition is about. They both also have a Spirit/Fairy.
Reverse harem, although La Corda D'Oro is more serious. There ARE quite a few funny areas too. Also, the main characters' (a.k.a. Haruhi and Kahoko) personalities are similar.
Both are reverse harem and is fun to watch though Ouran High is much more fun than La Corda..still im sure you're going to enjoy both series..:D
Both are school anime with a central female character surrounded by a lot of handsome guys. The girl comes to play a significant role in their lives helping them to change. Also, what both animes have in common is a rather ambigous romance line, when practically any male character has a potential to become a love interest for the main heroine.
these two series seem like they don't have an ending. there are a bunch of guys, one girl and most of the guys(or all) are into the girl. lol. anyway, in both of these series you'll cry, laugh, and love these animes. both of these have music too, that is if you like music as much as i do. but these two are just awesome. ^^
If you're a fan of one girl being surrounded by a bunch of guys, then these are the animes for you. All the male love candidates are as differeent as can be, and you've got a nice selection of pairings to choose from ;)
both are worth a look.
it's set in a school, each with a kinda of "club" where the main character gets attached to...
Like Ouran, La Corda has the huge (and very clueless) romantic pairs. And of course, all of the male cast falls for the violin-loving heroine, Kahoko Hino. It's funny and filled with music!
they both having a group of high school students consisting of a girl among a bunch of charming guys who all are liking her. Only that Kiniro no Corda has a second girl but pretty much unthere cause of extream silence she has. with some love complications an challenges.
They're so reminding me of each other!
One girl surrounded by several popular guys at school in both of these series. Yup.
But beyond that, both series contains plenty of drama and comedy. The characters all have various views on the main heroine and she gets to understand more in both series as the episodes progresses.
There's also romance in both series although not fully explored in the anime adaptations; reverse harem.
Four bishounens, free girls and funny actions! Both anime are very smiliar! Enjoy! ^_~
These animes have very similar characters; one being shy, one being silent, one being hyper, etc. The stories are also similar in a way. It's about life during school, the hardships the characters face and friendship being very important. The school is also divided into 2 different groups, the "average" students and the "advanced" students. Even though La Corda D'Oro is about music and Special A is more about competition and sports, they are both very fun to watch.
The characters frequently reminded me of the ones in Special A, although they're different in their own way. Also, both stories are about a group of seven people that are being ranked and the main characters are very passionate.
They both have a strong female character, surrounded by good-looking, extremely talented male characters. Both have a light-hearted, romantic feel - the story line never gets too deep, but they are both enjoyable to watch.
While both of these shows have completely different settings (La Corda focuses on classical music while Harukanaru is a fantasy and magic anime) they are both anime based on dating sims by the same creators. These two shows are both reverse harems, meaning a female character surrounded by a lot of males. The settings are different by the main focus is still present, that you the viewers will wonder who the female lead will end up with .
Reverse Harem + Bishounens for all those girls. o_o Also made by Koei, as well.
La Corda is the same type of anime as Harukanaru, both drawn by the same artists. La Corda is about a girl who doesn't know anything about music and with some magical help starts excelling in playing the violin and there are loads of hot guys around her. Harukanaru Toki... is also about a girl with many other male characters who are hot, though it is set in the past. There's also magic in it. They're both cute, and they're both enjoyable anime so watch them
Both are adaptions of a Neoromance game by KOEI, and they both have a reverse harem.
both have a girl surrounded by pretty guys and they both have fairy thing in it
Though this anime's more on music and playing instruments, both series have main characters obtaining special abilities by virtue of a supernatural being. Both anime also deal with how these characters eventually realize their own talent.
These two show have a very similar feeling about them. Both are about rising young stars, and have some sort of spirit guiding them to their goal. Both get into difficult situations because of the mysterious abilities given to them by the spirits. And both learn to play without the help of the abilities given to them. I'd say, if you like one, you will definitely love the other. ❤
The Two Heros gain the ability through supernatural means,to play something.
and over time develop interest for said thing.
Somehow when I was watching La Corda, it gave me Fruits Basket vibes. I guess it's the pace of the storytelling and the kind of mystery behind certain characters that made me feel nostalgic (I watched Fruits Basket when I was 12 or 13). You could call both the series reverse harem too.
Their theme are similar: a girl surrounded by boys. This girl helps others to improve and to be better than before.
Fruits basket has a really unique plot (which is about Zodiac characters and curse) while La Corda is about the music. Both are nice and worth to watch.
Although "Oran high school" and "Special A" have also the same genre: reverse harem" but the dialogs and character design in "La corda" and "Fruit basket" are far better. They are touching and deep.
I loved them.
both these animes have revers harem where the main girl is surrounded by alot of guys they both have romance in them and the art looks the same :)
Both anime are filled with eyecandies --- those are the bishounen male characters. Additionally, both stories are set in a school which is centered in a certain field. In La Corda, the school is a music school where the students play various instruments while in Starry Sky, the school specializes in astronomy.
they have different story line and theme but both anime is School, Romance Genre
and here are the other similarities:
Both anime have 2 different class/branch in 1 school, the Normal Branch and the Music Branch for LaCorda and the Day Class and the Night Class for VP
Zero, Yuuki and Kaname love triangle reminds me of the love triangle between Ryotaro, Hino and Len where both Ryotaro/Zero who's the same class/branch with the girl MC is quite cold yet protective with them, while Len and Kaname are both cold, cool, but also care for the girl MC
Both anime are very similar in the way that the romance portrayed is similar in the way that can relate to high school love. Although Tokimeki has no music relation to it, the level in which the love is conveyed makes it very similar. And both are great anime.
Rui and Len are both introverted characters who the main female protaganists in both shows continue pursing as friends
both main females are intimidated by the rest of school because of their social standing in corda due to her lack of being in the "superior" musical division, and in hana because of the lack of wealth
both female protaganists are strong-willed and persistant
Both are reverse harem themed anime with very [annoying] indecisive main characters with no special traits or talents. I guess you can say their only "good" trait is their naiveness to a fault but the main character in both anime (of course) ties the otherwise complicated and distant group of guys together with their meekness and can-do attitude. Typical for for otohime anime I suppose with relatively good art and different, handsome men.
Ok. First things first. Kiniro no Corda (La Corda d'oro) has almost nothing similar to Black rock shooter and vice versa. But when i watched Black rock shooter and Kiniro no Corda, I just thought that they were similar because in Kiniro the girl is occasionally freaking out about something, and then everything seems so... dark and her face is so similar to a girl in BRS when she is freaking out? I dunno. just thought that part was quite simllar. Also, the girls are so caught up in the activities they do that they part away from friends and they get angry or anxious. Then, when the girl finds out, their reactions are similar. Both have fantasy in it. I think the emotions, reactions, friendships, and relationships in the animes are what make it similar. BRS has a lot of action in it and Kiniro is not as violent, so I cannot gurantee that you will like both animes if you are up for actiony animes only or romance/not as violent animes (lol), but both are really good.
In Kamigami no Asobi, we have a strong-headed girl, (Yui) with 6 boys/gods falling in love with her, and all with different personalities. In La Corda d' Oro, we also have a strong-headed girl (Kahoko) with almost the same personality as Yui, and 5 main boys who like her. In both anime, the main girl has a cute little helper who guides the main girl in doing the right thing. In KnA, we have Melissa, whom I suppose is a spirit of some kind. and in La Corda d' Oro there's Lily, a music fairy. Well, in conclusion, they're both reverse harems that have characters with same personalities and similar plot.
- Fantasy, Romance, Reverse-Harem, Shoujo
- The female lead also have a spirit/fairy guiding her along the journey
- Sometimes the Art may not be the best, but it's definitely enjoyable.
- The storyline is unique & has potential.
- Instead of having the male characters representing card suits, they're distinguished by their chosen musical instrument. (:
Both anime are reverse-harem style, and in both, the main character is trying to hide a secret about herself which would otherwise damage her reputation. They're both also pretty light-hearted and have similar art. However, I would say La Corda D'Oro is slightly more serious and revolves around music, whereas Kaichou wa Maid Sama is a bit more comical and revolves around the romance between the Misa and Usui.
While Kiniro no Corda expresses a music theme with some magic, Princess Tutu expresses a dancing theme with more magic. Even though the stories are completely different Princess Tutu has classical music even though it's more fantasy genre.
Both features Music and Romance with at least one bishounen in the series.
Aimed towards females, even if the characters and settings are not similar, if you like Music and Romance, you'll like this series.
Both also have cute little blonde fairies..accept in this Anime, the fairy is one of the main - this Anime has a bit of fiction in it.
It also features Violin Music, as with Chiaki.
If you liked the musical bishie aspects of Kaikan Phrase (rock band trying to make it big), you might like La Cordo D'Oro (a reverse harem at a high school for music). Story-wise, they're not so similar, but the ingredients are kind of the same. The biggest difference would probably be the fact that one's rock and the other is more classical. ^v^
For the music fans out there, 'Full Moon wo Sagashite' and 'La Corda d'Oro' are for you. The characters are both talented and inspiring, and the music is beautiful. If you have ever dropped an insturment or choir, after watching a few episodes, you'll pick music up right away.
They're not very similar to each other since La Corda D'Oro doesn't really involve a romance between two people... but since Ai Shite Knight is about two guys and a girl--- and music, I think La Corda D'Oro is the closest thing to that.
The plots are completely different and they have very differeing tones but the characters are basically the same. (cold jerk, big brother figure, quiet girl that pwns, etc.) lol
Both is about music a boy who is very good at it and a girl who is not so "grande" but has talent and willpower. La corda d'oro has a bit of magic in it, on the other side Nodame has a sad story from the past that only love can help. In the end both have great classical music in it. You must watch it ;)
Both are reverse harems with a very good selection of male characters. They're both fairy tale esque and have just enough romance without being over or underwhelming. Neither have amazing stories, and can never be called masterpieces but they both have a certain charm that will keep you coming back for more.
Basic similarity: Both animes have a main character female that is cared for by a lot of guys, but one guy is particularly cold to her. La corda has a bit of corniness, with the fairy and all, whereas Itazura is on a somewhat more realistic scale. The lead male, cold and cool, are brilliant and the best at whatever they do (pretty typical), and though have cold exteriors, have kind hearts. One big difference: Itazura has a relationship evolve.
