The iDOLM@STER, Shirobako Recommendations

If you liked
...then you might like
Workplace drama featuring a really wide cast. Both touch on the darker sides of show business, but rather than wallow in misery the characters move forward, accepting that the business they are in is cruel but that it's what they want to do. Both also depict their characters advancing in their careers and the worries that come with even positive change.

first, both are colorful... really...
both shares the exact real live story about producing (idols/anime), not some slice-of-life that ended with fanservice story or romance story, but these two are the real story about real life

both shares the effort of being Producer, and how to step up from the very ver beginner

as you should know, iDOLM@STER starts their idoling from beginner idols which is not-so coordinated each other to become Top Idols
same for Shirobako, actually staff here are really beginner and as the series progress, they work harder as hard as they can, until they make a real great anime/>
in both, we could learn anything about (idols in iDOLM@STER, and animation in Shirobako)


and, this might not really, but... in both, we have Matsuoka Yoshitsugu's role as a great boy who're talented and nice  read more

Just as Shirobako introduces viewers to the world of anime production, IM@S is a story about the lives of professional idols and their tales as they reach for stardom. Both anime share a similar artistic style and have moments of comedy and seriousness.

-One of the character from both anime are in a depression.
-Both anime has a happy ending that makes you smile creepily.
