I always love anime the relates to art and so I decided to make a list of them! I’m including music related stories that are NOT idol type shows or super moe (ex. K-on! or AKB0048). There are so many of those and they are fairly easy to find. I will write a tidbit if I’ve seen it.
So here are some stories about artists!
Food Wars (2015) -Cooking/Ecchi/Comedy – This show is awesome! Ecchi because people have food-gasms XD
Gourmet Girl Graffiti (2015) -Cooking
The Pet Girl of Sakurasou (2012) Drawing mainly with others into game design and animation. I loved this one so much. Get ready for feels!
Kids on the Slope (2012) Music
Bakuman (2011) Drawing and writing Manga. I’ve only read the manga of this one so I can’t say too much for the anime. It’s on my watch list! I love the dynamics and quirky natures of the different artists the main characters befriend. From the creators of Deathnote!
Piano Forest (2007) Music
Gallery Fake (2005) Art gallery owner!
Honey and Clover (2005) Visual arts – This one has a few jokes that anyone that has studied art would really get! It reminds me of college. Love this!
Glass Mask (2005) Acting
Skating Rink Kaleidoscope (2005) Ice skating
Princess Tutu (2002)- Ballet/Fairy Tale
Canvas: Motif Of Sepia (2002) Painting
Gravitation (2001) Music. The romance of a musician and a moody writer. (Shounen-ai)
Kaikan Phrase (2000) Music
Kodocha (1998) Child Actress – I read a bit of the manga as a kid. It was funny and light-hearted. Not a serious show at all, but perhaps a fun watch.
Chuuka Ichiban! (1998)-cooking
Let me know if I’ve missed something or if you’ve seen any of these!
Thanks for reading!
