both focus on one character in their work environment with a mature comedy touch. the co-workers had a supporting role. the main characters are working in media; Uramichi works in a tv show and Minare works in radio. both anime address adults problems.

Nami yo Kiitekure and Shirobako share a similar setting, that has their lead working in media. They both offer a well written and thought story, genuine comedy, and developed, human feeling characters that have real life struggles. There is a difference in tone, when Shirobako is softer in style and plot, Nami yo Kiitekure is going in a a more realistic, even natural direction. If you enjoyed one, I'm confident you'll appreciate the other.

They both have similar senses of humor, and are both great at catching you off guard with their jokes. While they offer different reasons to watch them, if you want lots of unique humor then either one are great. Nami yo Kiitekure felt more intentional, better directed, and generally higher quality, but I feel that Daily Life of Highscool boys doesn't really try (or need) to compete in that way.

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!

Similarities: 1. Both were workplace themed animes. 2. Both have the same level of Comedy, romance and slice of life. 3. Both were made for younger adults. dissimilarities: 1. One is a bit more focus on the life of the job while the other was more like some kind of awkward science experiment. 2. One Romance in one anime was the main focal point while the other was more like the characters opinion on everyday life.

Adult workplace comedy. Servant x Service is definitely more on the comedy side than work, but I think both have a similar feel to them.

Both are shows about the trials and joy that can be found in creative media, anime in the case of eizouken and radio for nami. Both also gain much of their attraction from their casts of interesting characters. The most obvious difference comes from the characters as well: while eizouken's protagonists are high schoolers, nami's are young adults in the working world, giving the shows substantially different tones.

Rakugo s1 is very similar in quality, but takes on a different niche profession. Rakugo is a drama instead of a comedy, but both share a array of strong characters. Rakugo moreso than Show actually, as the standout character in Show was more or less just MC but there's two strong characters in Rakugo.

While the stories are vastly different, the mood is surprisingly similar between the two. A good balance of serious storytelling and absurd comedy at the same time. Lots of well written and distinct characters. They also both take place in Hokkaido, and are heavily rooted in the culture of the area (though from different time periods).

Both are pretty decent comedy anime, nothing amazing but quite good. And unlike most Japanese centered comedies, they are easy to understand and sometimes even make references / jokes about Western media, making them more suitable for Western audiences (both still take place in Japan though). Chio-chan is school setting while Nami Kiite has a full adult cast who already have a job.

The main characters of both animes for the first time try themselves as the narrators on radio station. 
report Recommended by Kyosuke_Kosaka
Both are adult slice of life about people working for quite a niche profession (Radio and Magazine company). Both MC get involved kinda suddenly into their workplace and become passionate as they go along with it. Both contain some dramas and realistic characters. They really both give a similar feeling and can teach some things by putting a spot on unusual professions.

Both are about work life with some comedy on it. Both mc deal with some problem in their workspace. If you enjoy hakozume, Nami yo Kiitekure will be the best choice to watch
