Despite the fact that their reasons to enter the entertainment world are the opossite, they later discover that the entertainment world it's not as easy as it seems and it's not just about wanting to be there but that it also requires a lot of hard work. The two of them are funny and if you like this kind of shoujo,romantic, comic and idols stuff you might enjoy watching it.

Both have very nice romance aspects and yet the quality comedy!! >W< karin's expressions remind me of kirari too. Although it doesn't have the whole idol theme, and its more of a parody of a magical girl anime, kamichama karin is a great romance-comedy to watch! ^ ^

If you can take Kirarin Revolution's laughing, angry, crazyness of the main character kirari, then you can take Mikan Sakura's emotions! They are like the same!! It's sooo kawaii!!! <3333

Both these shows have crazy main characters who are idols, two potential love interests and a crazy pet/animal thing. I find myself thinking of kodocha many times when i watch kirarin. If you liked kodocha i'd defenitely give kirarin a try. oh, and vice versa. Kodocha has a much deeper story to it though.

I know the plots don't have anything in common, but the art is somehow similar and I get the same feeling while watching it. Also, Shin reminds me of Hiroto and Konoka kinda reminds me of Kirari.

Both have a girl who is determined to get what she wants in life. Both also have to do with the entertainment business as well.

super cute and lovable, a little air-headed main girl characters. both want to be popular performers. though lala wants to simply because she loves preforming and kirarin because she likes a guy(but grows to love it). and they both always have great friends supporting them.

Even though the two series are of completely different genres, both series are uniquely focused on characters aiming to become idols. In addition, both series do tend to exaggerate greatly. Whereas AKB0048 is set in a pseudo-futuristic setting, Kirarin is set in a more realistic settings. Kirarin is first of all aimed towards a younger shoujo demographic and more children-friendly. The setting and plot are more comedy oriented. However, the songs are definitely not as professional as the ones performed by AKB48. On the other hand, AKB0048 is aimed towards the AKB48 fans and general otaku culture. The soundtrack of AKB0048 is based on past  read more

They're both about girls who want to make their career out of singing. However, Lemon Angel Project is a little bit more serious than Kirarin, and has a stronger storyline. 
report Recommended by Kuromii
Both animations are comedy/shoujo/romance (with the romance being not-so-romantic). Kodomo no Omocha OVA's lead character is a TV star on the show "Child's Toy" while the lead character from Kirarin Revolution becomes an idol and sings for her career. Both characters have love problems (like most shoujo animes) that are drawn out to an almost unbearable aspect.

in both animes there are two boys one who is really nice on the outside and one who is nice but is stubborn and ruff on the outside and in both animes the girl had nothing to do with either of the boys and didnt really get anything but eventually becomes friends with them and becoming part of ther world

A girl wishes to fall in love and her wish comes true twice!

It is a really sweet story and in a way kind of crazy! The main characters aren't as sill as Kirari but how it ends up is strange! It is really good and I would recommend it to anyone!

They are both Animes about girls who are unknowingly thrown into show business.. Both shows include music aswell as dancing. Bought contain Romance, Comedy, Dramatic moments aswell as the simillar feeling as they both are Shoujo animes.. In the show Pretty Rhythm there will be some 3D animated moments aswell as in Kirarin Revolution where the last episodes of the show was all in the 3D format. They are both really fashionable and will deal with potential real-life problems.. Both shows are truly enjoyable as they both contain moments who will make you laugh and captivate you.. The shows are directed more at the kids level,  read more
