Both are about voice actors; REC is a 15-minute per episode vignette about chance and attraction between a buisnessman and a seiyu, and Koe de Oshigoto is an OVA series about a sixteen year old girl learning to voice over eroges.
Both have a nice, uncharacteristically (for the medium) low-key love element as well.
Work and music are intertwined in both of these series. In each, the main characters face the challenge of balancing the pressure of their social lives and meeting the expectations of their fellow colleagues. Nodame Cantabile is much longer and contains a considerable amount of comedy,both are enjoyable and entertaining.
Both have the Female leads with the dream of becoming a voice actress.
Both shows also have a romance elements if that is what your looking for as well.
Both shows are comedy, but they also have a touch of drama.
The difference really is the length REC (9 episodes including a special) and Love Get Chu (25 Episodes).
So if you in it for the long haul go with Love Chu, but if you want something short and sweet with a touch of Drama REC is the way to go.
Both series are about working hard towards a goal. While REC focuses more on romance, Doujin Work focuses on comedy... but both have hints at each. Also, the main character in both shows look a lot younger than they are meant to be.
Both series focuses on the main protagonist trying to follow a dream involving a profession.
Both series contain comedy, drama, and a little romance. While Rec is more mature, both anime contains a smooth boundary despite being short series.
Both are about young adult people and their dealing with everyday life. Both are realistic, mostly serious stories with a little humour. There is also romance storyline, but also rather realistic, seinen-oriented.
The set-up for each series is incredibly similar; a male protagonist in their twenties starts off in a state of depression until they meet a female character whom would impact both of their lives immensely. Both characters face everyday obstacles in a rather realistic world, adding to the relatability. Each series also has a similar feel, both being a mix of comedy, romance, and drama.
This anime is very similar to REC, its about the relationship with living with another person. The romance is sweet and very realistic. The only difference is that I think personally REC has a better sound track, art and story. REC definitely goes more into the relationship side of things with more drama, while "I cant understand what my husband is saying" goes into the more comedic aspect of life. Both are heartwarming relationships and are much more realistic most anime's. I would fully recommend "I cant understand what my husband is saying" to anyone who just finnished REC
Both series deal with the main female character who wants to succeed in the seiyuu business. Whereas Rec is a mix of romance, comedy and slice-of-life, Gi(a)rlish is more realistic and somewhat straight out sarcastic view of the seiyuu community.
Rec and Girlish, share one caracteristic, the seiyu (Voice actor) industry sucks, in Girlish number this aspect it´s more notable, but Rec goes for the romance side, and the industry makes the romance even more interesting.
Indeed, even if their atmosphere are totally different (salaryman is more serious and Rec more romantic comedy), they both have three important elements:
1.Realistic Problems, based on work or on relationships (boss-employed, etc)
2.Mature Romance, for once, if thats you're looking for.
3. The World of the Business, but it's a little better represented on Salaryman Kintarou
Both are mature series resolvin around mature characters.
Thought Usagi Drop is about parenting and REC is about what it takes to acomplish your dreams and mantaing a relationship, the chemistry beween the characters is very similar.
If working an new environment is a factor, then both Rec and Servant x Service definitely has similarities in terms of their stories. In fact, the main female protagonist is a new recruit to their line of business. They start out as a newbie but adjusts to their environment as each episode progresses.
Speaking of progressing, the main female protagonist also has interesting relationships with the various characters at their workplace ranging from friendship, to romantic, and to respect. There's also fun comedy and humorous dialogues that formulates entertainment for both series.
If you're looking for some short comedy and romance, then these two series are the way to go especially when a boy and a girl living under the same roof is one of the themes of both series.
Additionally, there are those awkward moments and sexual tension between the main characters that you can cut through with a knife.
Great series for fans for those looking for romance (with a little ecchi and mature themes) ;)
Enjoy a romcom for an adult audience. Both animes feature an adult couple trying to make their mark in their industry (classical music and voice acting and marketting). Supporting each other, they go through a lot of personal and professional development. The interplay between these parts of their lives strengthen their relationships and makes for an interesting story.
The element of "under the same roof" adds to the comedy as well as drama. Both have a happy ending.
The two series are similar to the skeleton. But have different body parts. The two share a sort of fated meeting of a future lovers couple. Whereas one deals with music, the other deals with voice acting.
Two series of 15 minutes where the protagonist falls in love with an actress (in REC is seiyuu, and in LoveLove of TV series), where the prota will support her in her career, as they work together on the same project. Where he has erotic visions about her, even so they are highly esteemed. We have comedy with drama, with some cliches, but equally enjoyable if you support this type of story.
Not completely similar, but in both stories the main characters refuse to admit that they Love each other and struggle through many things because of that. They keep in touch, but their relationship together is a lot close then just friends.
The time lapse is different but they in common have similar type of growing romance, job problems as background and a nostalgic athmosphere on key scenes. The last one is the aspect that more reminds me of MI.
Both stories centre around a pair that live alone together and, despite their moments of drama, generally have a pleasant, feel-good tone that keeps one in the back of my mind whenever I watch the other.
Very similar tones... both are great stories about life's ups and downs, love, and friendship. While REC is more centered around one couple though, Honey and Clover is about a group of friends. Both are excellent series.
First they're both romance, but there is one big similarity between these two anime: the unspoken love between the main characters. It's like we know they have feelings for each other, why the fu*K can't they just say that to each other. So the tension is about the same and if u exclude the fantasy bit from Spice and wolf i think that if you liked one you con't not like the other :D
Both animes present a relationship in which one side of the pair refuses to admit that there are any feelings. They both also display that slightly upsetting characteristic of the male being unnecessarily cruel to the girl he loves, but getting forgiven anyway. Lady Gaga would categorize these as "Bad Romance," haha.
Romance animes that can really get to you. Unlikely couples, dealing with and helping overcome each other's issues. Both do a nice job at depicting the characters' emotions of falling in love with someone and being completely clueless about it, at least consciously. Warm, fuzzy feelings that make you blush, almost guaranteed.
