Both are PA Works shows that are about people working jobs. Shirobako is about anime production, Sakura Quest is about the tourism industry. They give off similar moods, have a good balance between slice of life and comedy, and have very like-able and diverse characters. While both certainly sugar-coat their respective careers, they do give lots of insight into some of the issues that can come up in each field. Sakura Quest kind of feels like Shirobako but in the country.

Both anime start with a young girl moving from Tokyo to a small town. The girls both help make changes to their environment along the way. Hanasaku Iroha is set in a Japanese traditional bath house and Sakura Quest revolves around the town's new queen/mascot. Both anime have similar artwork and the same general feeling. They are peaceful coming to age stories.

Both take place in rural towns and explore the lifestyles of living in such a place. Sakura Quest focuses on adults working in the town, while Non Non Biyori focuses on care-free kids just looking to have a good time. They are both very cozy shows, and have similar styles of humor. If you are craving a small-town adventure, look no further than these two.

Same premise (make your dump at least a little attractive), but adult vs Highschool Cast and a different approach. At the stage of Sakura's episode 4 Locodols is more emotional and offers Yuri subtext, but I guess at least the feels aspect will surely also come.

Same sort of small town, local pop culture idols.

Both is a trully slice of life, well balanced for all aspect. A bit slow pace but in the end both has perfect ending. *for tamayura case, should watch the entire series.

This anime has the same goal. ie it revive a long-dead tempang .. originally also two main characters in the anime is refusing to be given the task .. in terms of story is almost similar and comedy too cute >.<

The main casts of Sakura Quest and Yorimoi are similar in that they are young women who meet and quickly bond by working together and overcoming hardships. But these shows are more than "cute girls doing cute things" - they inspire an appreciation for everyday life and a desire to try new things. Kimari and Yoshino both yearn to do something meaningful with their lives, and gain a new perspective through making new friends and having new experiences.

Series exploring a professional career with details. The characters are faced with obstacles that they have to overcome.

A group of girls trying to pump life into their careers. Similar atmosphere with opposite settings. The art is similar too but it's kinda more advanced in Sakura Quest.

Both go all-in on the small town atmosphere and involves storylines centered on revitalization.

Both deal with adult characters who are at a crossroads in their life. Yoshino ends up helping out a small town and learns new things about herself, while Arata does the same only he goes back to high school.

Both Anime deals with Characters who struggle in life and doesn't know what to do, while Sakura Quest has a more comical approach and Mach comes like a lion has a more melancholic one. Both animes states the same message which is You Matter.

Although Meiji Tokyo Renka is a romance anime and Sakura Quest is a slice-of-life anime, they have similar concepts; -A cast of interesting characters solving problems within their hometowns -The ending of both can be considered 'unsatisfying'  
report Recommended by Slimmin
Both works deal with the reviving or rejuvenation of a smaller sized country town with the introduction of new or old ideas, as well as the effect the current decay has had on the local population, geography and economy. The two main heroines, although one is at least ten years the senior of the other, are both finding life in the bustling metropolis of Tokyo difficult due to a lack of personal luck in progressing their career. A coincidence recalls them to the countryside where they are invited or hired to participate in an effort to bring back something the town lost along the  read more

The story involve similar MC to a new enviroment by accident, the moral of how the caracter adapt to the new situation and also new people is I think similar, but still to be expected this is my first impression about the first episode of Sakura quest

They're seemingly different at first, but without spoiling anything (because it really is worth it to go into Zombieland Saga knowing as little as possible about it), after the first episode, they make me want to see the places they feature. Also, Yoshino reminds me of Sakura and Ushimatsu reminds me a little of Koutarou.

Both these animes are about young people working for their city's government. Most the characters are earnest though there is slice of life comedy. Nice to have some shows about regular people in there mid-late twenties.

These are two slice of life series about adults in the working world. Specifically, about adults taking on new careers and finding their place within them. They are heavily about family, bonds with those around you, teamwork, and adapting to your situation. They have similar senses of humor and a balanced mix of relaxation, drama, and comedy. If you've seen them both, you understand that they both have a similar sense of accomplishment with them.

P. A Works animations that both feature characters that revolve themselves around their attempt to find success in the city; albeit to their dismay have their aspirations and dreams to be cut short. They'll find jobs that leads them to a place far from the city, where tourism & business closure becomes the community's main issue. Sakura Quest has a grounded and realistic direction whereas Aquatope attempts to add elements of a dreamscape fantasy reminiscent to shows like Nagi no Asukara.

Female friendships form in the Japanese countryside. Easygoing shows that spark appreciation for the small things in life.

Protagonist moves from Tokyo to a small rural town and learns to love it. An easygoing slice-of-life story with a focus on rural Japanese life that will leave you with a smile on your face.

These are two workplace anime, one about a tourism board and one about a restaurant. They give off similar moods and are largely focused on the daily life working at these places, though Sakura Quest has a more linear and streamlined story. Both are very cozy.

Both of them take place in rural Japan and to varying extents involve it's decline. While Persona 4 is more subtle with this theme (due to the whole supernatural murder mystery aspect taking the forefront), it's certainly present with things like the chain store Junes destroying local businesses. This extends to some characters present in both series really disliking being stuck in the country, despite having to remain there for certain reasons (in Persona 4, Adachi is simply stationed in Inaba. In Sakura Quest, Erika has lived in Manoyama her whole life but can't leave due to still being a child).

Both of these shows revolve around coworkers. The casts are sweet and colorful while being grounded and relatable. Wotakoi focuses more on the characters romance life outside of work, while in Sakura Quest the characters get to know each other better while on the job.

Adult female main character works in the Japanese countryside while trying to figure out what to do going forward. Heartfelt and easygoing with very human characters.

Both take place at a countryside japanese town and it focus the atention in a group of female characters.

Main heroines are REALLY similar. In personality, and both couldnt find the place where they belong then by a stroke of luck they find a group to which they are cold at first but then they start to realize how great they are and get warmer to them. Apart from that everything else is different, i do think ID-0 is a better anime out of two.
