They won't let this dream end as just a dream. Open The Door. Both school girls aim for a big dream and try their best single‐mindedly. Colorful, hopeful, and energetic. Atmospheres and characters are also very similar. Sarasa and Narata's relationship reminds me of Kumiko and Reina. They're passionate about their favorite things. I have to mention voice acting and music. Simply amazing. Combined with dramatic stories and well-written characters, very interesting. You won't lose anything by giving it a try. Because of Hibike! and Kageki Shoujo!! tell us about the importance of never giving up on our dream.

Even though the similarities in name are coincidental, they are two sides of a coin. If you'd like to continue learning about the Takarazuka Revue, it's a good idea to pick up the other. If you watched Revue Starlight, Kageki Shoujo is a grounded and more realistic portrayal of the series' conflicts. If you watched Kageki Shoujo, Revue Starlight's metaphorical delivery might be easier to grasp when you already know the structures that are being critiqued.

Both animes have characters that follow some tropes but they're gonna face the reality of the industry of the entertainment and how sometimes that can make difficult follow a dream. Both are filled of comedy and drama that are well handled, also the direction and the voice actors of both animes make more special some moments. The characters develop their relationships as the plot goes, and in my opinion it's highly probable that by the end of the series you will have affection for the characters.

Both series revolve around the world of acting, and have characters learning from scratch. Some talents blossom and rivalries intensify, while other characters struggle to keep up. Great character development.

Both series are driven by the development their characters through fairly niche themes (soft-tennis for HoshiSora and Takarazuka Revue for Kageki Shoujo!!). Care is taken when exploring each characters' backstories and diverse personalities, even when bringing up difficult topics such as abuse. If HoshiSora left you yearning for more of the budding friendships between troubled characters despite all of their differences, but want a more lighthearted experience: try watching Kageki Shoujo!! If you enjoyed the drama and darker themes found in Kageki Shoujo and want more of that, but still also want a cute ensemble cast (including two contrasting main protagonists) who gradually learn to get along:  read more

Both anime are set in schools and have a diverse cast of personalities striving to better their art, whether it be singing and acting or playing koto.

Both of these shows take place in an all-girls school and highlight many social trials between the main characters as well as the side characters. Though Oniisama e... is definitely more on the darker end of the spectrum when it comes to highlighting these trials, Kageki Shoujo has its fair share of nail-biting and dark tones akin to Oniisama e... As such, Kageki Shoujo gives me the same vibes of Oniisama e... I'd say that Oniisama e... is Kageki Shoujo's darker, broodier cousin.

Both shows from the same season are a slice of life attending art school. Kageki Shoujo is a bit more straightforward in that premise but features a larger cast of characters that seem to have good depth to them. Remake Our Life is a bit more fantastical but as such has the more interesting story.

Anime about theater actors were rare nowadays. Luckily, these shows presented in all-male characters and all-female characters within their perspectives. Each characters designed to have their background story to be told that made them as an inspirations towards on the passion of acting.

Both are really similar in the artistic theme and vibe. Kiniro is more of an straight Harem version of Kageki. Kageki is more of a shoujo-ai one. Both deal with music, and performing. Kiniro is more centered on music when Kageki is more of acting. Both deal with talented flowers yet to bloom. Both have romance : Kiniro is more of an harem romance when kageki is each own characters with their own story and dramas.

Both are all-female protagonist ensemble casts about girls doing their best in a school setting, supporting each other, and coming of age. In both shows the stories each of the main girls, who are each interesting in their own right, is explored in depth. Basically, both fundamentally happy shows, yet with some dark/mature/trauma-involving undertones. Both are great shows.

Both series revolve around acting, and heavily feature the classical kabuki theater. Team spirit, following dreams and being distanced from the "regular world" are important themes in both. Kabuki-bu! focuses fully on the world of kabuki, while in Kageki Shoujo!!, kabuki plays a big role, although the main characters strive to be musical actresses.

Both of them take place in a prestige, noble setting with an all-girls surrounding. The MCs in both shows resemble each other, Sarasa and Yumi being energetic and positive and their counterparts Sachiko and Ai being more distant with a cold and cool aura. Both shows give off the same Shoujo and Drama vibes and are generally very similar to each other.

Have you ever wondered how tough it was for girls to love rakugo? The ancient art of storytelling is reserved for males to perform. Both series touch on the subject of girls loving to perform rakugo. The world of theatre, drama and passionate young individuals with interesting backstories aiming to perform better for the audience is the main similarity in the two series.

Both anime are about female friendships and trying to excel in show business. Skip Beat is lighter and more comedic. Kageki Shoujo deftly handles serious issues. Both have fabulous audition sequences.
