Both of these manga's star a main actor and their struggles and progresses in the world of acting. Both main characters are refreshing, honest to a fault, a little naive, and kind to the bone. They both have something in their past that cripples them emotionally and both manga's are their stories working past them. While Cat Street is much much shorter and less developed, it is still a heartwarming tale worth a read. Skip Beat is objectively well written, I don't need to say much about it other than that it's a manga every shoujou manga fan needs to read at least once in their life.
Both of these animes are animes featuring a sport already made into a popular anime, but feature a main cast of women instead. The art style of both are very moe, very clean, with nice colors and character designs. Both have a minor yuri vibe that is apparent, but not overbearing. Shakunetsu no Takkyuu Musume is different in that it's about Ping Pong, it features middles schoolers rather than college students, and the main character is actually experienced at her sport.
