Bang Dream is a Band Anime while Love Live School Idol Project is an Idol Anime. Both shows have a cute ditzy cheerful lead that everyone loves. One loves Bread while the other love Shiny things. Both have pretty cute girl mates and each one refuses to be a part of Band/Idol Group at first due to personal reasons. They have the same vibe and atmosphere and seems that almost no males are shown in their universe. Both are pretty good light hearted Slice of Life shows that deal with pursuing a dream or passion shared by their teammates. Stories about struggles and joy of being an School Idol  read more

If you enjoy D4DJ, you will love BanG Dream. Bushiroad is one of the biggest producers when it comes to rhythm games. Both have their own game as well. The animation is quite similar, the music is beautiful listen to in both. The characters are similar and very lovely.

Both anime tells about the band. How they find members, perform on stage, drama between members, meet other bands and make friends with them. Basically this anime is the same, the only different is gender,age, and extra angst

A young school girl gets fascinated with something (related with music) and now she wants to be like that, scouting other girls with their own dreams and reasons to be on the group on her way

I think if you enjoyed Mikagura Gakuen Kumikyoku you'll also like BanG Dream! The heroines of these series are extremely similar in both their personalities and their outlooks on life. The animes aren't really deep but the stories they tell are quite interesting. Not focusing on the bigger story but rather main characters relations to other characters. Which is actually really enjoyable as it is not over focused, and makes it easier to watch. The heroines are cheery girls who try to gather a group of girls to form something new. If you like school type anime I recommend you watch them both.

Cute chicks with guitars but with a scifi story. If you like the pop rock in Bandori, you'll enjoy the same with Show by Rock!
