The MCs have an interest in their respective professions, and work hard to earn it despite obstacles or criticisms. There is no simply learning the tricks of the trade, the characters need to balance profession and passion for their arts.

The moods in these shows are quite similar, as well as the protagonists. Both are about a girl trying to make her way in a world that doesn't seem to want her to succeed. Arte is about, well, making art. Bookworm is about, well, making books. At least, that's what they are about at first. Both develop into much more than that, and are great commentaries on societal expectations and limitations. If you want a story about characters going up against challenging odds to create what they are passionate about, these are both great for that. I would argue that Bookworm has a bit more  read more

In Arte, the main character is also a woman aspiring to learn a trade, painting portraits of clients. In Violet Evergarden, the main character learns the trade of writing letters for clients. As they work for their clients, they learn about them, they gain respect for them, and they gain a friend. Both are historical fiction taking place in a European setting. In either, there is a blossoming romance with someone they idolize, although in Violet Evergarden it is a side plot. Coincidentally, both shows are named after the main character.

Both period anime. Both feature sweet main characters who are stepping into situations their society would consider taboo. Both feature a similar type of atmosphere and storytelling that is alike. If you liked one of these anime, I suggest you try the other out!

Both have lead noble girls who refuse to be conquered by what life throws at them. They both aired at the same time and have about the same quality animation. Both female leads change the perspective of those around them and help them grow as a person.

These 2 animes revoked something in me that I've lost a long time ago: the passion for my favorite subjects. I really love Science & Art as a kid but then school had to ruin them by involving Math and hiring a shitty Art teacher which made me lose faith in both of these subjects. Until one day, I found these 2 animes on KissAnime. I read the summary and got interested so I watched the whole thing and love it! Both stories center around things that you learn in school but unlike school, the animes made it look interesting, easy to remember and fun  read more

A girl who wants to achieve her dream despite of being disparaged, that's the main concept of both shows. If you're interested about their journey, all of their struggles, their endeavor to make sure their dreams be achieved, I recommend it.

Both shows have enthusiastic & lively female leads. They both are Seinen shows including Drama and Romance. Both of them has unusual setting while Arte might be the better one in terms of atmosphere. Whereas Nami yo Kiitekure excels in Comedy,Arte rather takes a gentle SoL approach. If you're enjoying NyK,you may wanna dive into the steady & wholesome adventure of Arte! If you're loving Arte,you may wanna delve into the wild & jazzy ride of Nami yo Kiitekure!

Historical setting telling the tale of a young female lead trying to succeed in a male dominated world. Very female enpowerment heavy. 
report Recommended by Roevhaal
Similar to how Akagami no Shirayuki-hime is recommended, this is set in a historical period where a noble/princess is thrust from her usual conditions into a whole new world. No one will believe they will survive, but with the iconic snip of her hair MC will become strong on their own accord.
