Anime About the Arts (No idols!)

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

Your Lie in April (2014)   Music – This one is amazing I highly recommend it. I reviewed it here.

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!
