For sure they are very a like. They are both about making it into the industry of pop culture. While Shirobako focuses on the production of anime, Bakuman focuses around the world of manga. The point where they differ the most is the romance which can be seen in Bakuman. Both animes are interesting and charming in their own way and should definitely be watched!

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.

Both portray about the work of manga/anime industry. The course of the show teaches the step by step of this work. But bakuman has romance, and Shirobako not. Bakuman focuses on how it is done manga and Shirobako focuses about anime.

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.

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".

Both anime shows the awesome/harsh realities of making an anime/manga. Both anime shows the workflow and the hard work required for making the dream a reality. These shows are life experiences in anime form.

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.

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.

Bakuman is a shounen about creating Manga. Shirobako is a slice of life about Anime production. While being in different genres, these stories take it upon themselves to make the process of making the media we love into a quality narrative with characters that you want to succeed. If you enjoyed watching the process, watch these.

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.

Bakuman is an entertaining Ganbatte-show with the twists of fate involving drama, romance and comedy elements. The story analyses and outlines the hard work that Moritaka and Akito are accepting in order to realize their dream of becoming successful Manga-ka. The show delivers an excitingly told and sophisticate, concrete insight into the Manga industry. Shirobako is an perfect continuation taking you on a roller coaster ride into the ups and downs of an Anime production. The Show is funny but on the other hand as precise as Bakuman in regard to the insight the industry. I like to recommend both shows because even if they look like   read more

Bakuman showed us the painstaking process that goes in to making a manga. Shirobako is the next course in your anime education as it will teach you about the production side of turning manga or an original script into an anime. We all love praising or bashing a studio for their work, but we never really knew how much work goes into the anime we watch. 10/10 would recommend any anime fan to watch Shirobako.

Both series told us about anime/manga industry. Bakuman focused on mangaka duo who wanted to be #1 mangaka. Shirobako focused on 5 girls who tried to make an anime series together.
