Both series teach about the creation of some of our favorite types of entertainment and the struggles that come with them. Bakuman focuses on the creation of manga, while Shirobako tells us about the development of anime. As such both are a must watch for every anime fan, but are also a good introduction for anyone unfamiliar with the genre.

The first describes the process of the creation of a manga, the second one of an anime.
Both of them are in my opinion equally good, the only difference is in the romance part since there isnt a real couple in Shirobako.

Both shows tell us exactly how much work goes in to making some of our favorite anime/manga. Each show goes into detail about the process of making both. After watching both shows you will have a deeper appreciation for anime you watch and manga you read.

If shirobako is a love letter to the anime industry
Bakuman is a love letter to the manga industry

Day to day happenings within the Japanese entertainment industry. Both start as highschoolers and their friend(s) having the dream to "make it big" in the business. Both share the laughs and toils of the experiences by a vast cast.

Only difference is that Bakuman has a romance subplot while Shirobako is more of a "slice of life".

These anime are different but similar.

Shirobako is about the creation of anime.
Bakuman is about the creation of manga.

They both are great shows that deal with the creation of material that we enjoy so much, and watching them gave me an appreciation for all the hard work that goes into making the manga/anime that we enjoy so much. I think that they both are a must see for every anime/manga fan.

Both shows relate to the creation of some form of entertainment. Bakuman focuses on making manga, where Shirobako focuses on the production of anime. Both series are light-hearted and have a well paced plot which makes both of these shows worth watching!

both shows portray people creating a a form of entertainment, in the case of bakuman the protagonists are creating a manga, although the main focus of both shows is the relationships between the main characters and the hardship they went through when in the industry.

Shirobako, otherwise known as "Anime - The Anime" and Bakuman, "Manga - The Anime".
Both animes are excellent and give great insight into how both anime and manga respectively are produced. Both stories also follow a group of friends from a young age into adulthood as they chase their dreams. Bakuman also has a romance subplot however, which is worked in beautifully.

If you liked one be sure to give the other a try, you won't regret it

Both are meta-anime. Bakuman focuses on the creation of manga while Shirobako on anime. Bakuman has some shounen tendencies while Shirobako is more heart-warming.
report Recommended by Darmaiad
Bakuman teaches you about the creation and publishing of manga - Shirobako does the same, with anime. Both anime show hardworking people which is (at least for me) kind of exciting and motivating. The maybe biggest difference between the both is that Bakuman has romance, Shirobako hasn't.
