Rec, Nodame Cantabile Recommendations
extremely similar atmosphere. developing characters and relationships. brilliant
Similar tones, similar quirky main characters, both great romance series although REC is a lot shorter. Both are must sees IMO.
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.
