AKB0048, Wake Up, Girls! Recommendations
Kind of similar plot, only Wake Up, Girls! is set in a current time and there no sci-fi. AKB0048 has more drama, mystery, and sci-fi. Both feature a several girls auditioning for an idol group and their lives as they try to become idols.
AKB0048 focuses on more surreal world in the future, but the basic setting is the same - girls who have never done idoling pass the audition and start growing as stars, struggling with their place in the idol group and forming strong friendships together. AKB0048 doesn't have a rival idol group, but an anti-entertainment group that's against them, so it has more action in its plot than the calmer Wake Up, Girls! does. AKB0048 is also more music centered anime.
- Both has Idols on it
- The struggle to succeed
- AKB has more action and mystery as Wake up girls focus on the real now a days life
