Hey Everyone!

I just recently started watching Sound! Euphonium and Your Lie in April, and I've fallen in love with both of them. Does anyone have recommendations for other anime that revolve around music like those two examples? Not really looking for a particular genre, I realize that both those shows are completely different stories. Thanks!

I'm gonna say Love Live! School Idol Project. But that might be the wrong type of music you are looking for.

The Idol Master (and it's spin-off Cinderella Girls)
Hanayamata
Locodol
AKB48's anime is also music based but it's not slice of life like the others mentioned.
Samurai Jam - Bakumatsu Rock is also music based but more comedy.

Another vote for Beck here. Great soundtrack and characters, and has a really raw feeling compared to KimiUso and Euphonium.

I almost forgot, this past Anime Mirai project had two amazing shorts along the line you're asking and I know past years had them too, This years were Aki no Kanade (Aki's Music Playing) about a young girl who joins a ceremonial drum club in her town and Ongaku Shojo (Music Girl) is about an outgoing young girl who brings a young songwriter out of her shell to perform her songs together as an Idol duo. Both have that slice of life feel to them and both are based entirely in the music story-wise.

There was an amazing one from last year called Harmony too.

Thanks for suggesting these shows just watched them on Youtube and they are awesome short movies: I really liked the show about the drums
Aki No Kanade. I'm sure it could be more detailed with her past but I would say for a short film they did great! I wish CR could buy the rights for longer viewing.

YVW . Little Witch Academia and Death Billiards (Death Parade) both spun off out of past Anime Mirai projects so hopefully we see a spinoff or two out of this one too. The project never fails to deliver something for everybody .
