Laced with popular classical music this special combines fun and inspiration for all ages and audiences.
19. Kachou Ouji (Legend of Black Heaven)
This anime about music is about Oji Tanaka who has a wife, a child and a mundane job as a salary man in Tokyo’s modern society. But life wasn’t dull for him to begin with; 15 years ago, he was known as “Gabriel”, leader of a short-lived heavy metal band called Black Heaven.

This anime about music starts at Shirahamazaka High School, a special recital is held every year in which music students are able to showcase their talents in front of professionals and other prestigious guests. A third year, Konatsu Miyamoto desperately wants to sing in her last high school recital, but because she screwed up the year before, the vice principal has barred her from participating.
That’s when Konatsu comes up with a new plan to get involved; instead of joining the official choir, she’ll form her own singing club with her friends!

With only a month left until the recital, will Konatsu be able to find enough members for her club and actually be ready to sing at one of the most important events of the school year and graduate without regrets?
17. Aki no Kanade (Wakate Animator Ikusei Project)
Pretty decent for a short anime about music movie. Was expecting this movie to be longer but I guess there’s no need.
The cover for this movie speaks for itself, there’s a lot of challenges and doubts faced for Miyagawa; while there’s also the same girl who’s ambitious and is proud of her work.
This story encompasses a lot of cultural art into it, kind of hard to find a movie who literally focuses “on a girl who wants to be a professional drummer.”
16. The [email protected]
765 Production Studio manages the unique talents of 13 professional idols as they slowly make their way to the top and become country-wide celebrities.
But the girls’ journey is far from just fun and games: hard work, sweat, and tears are some of the prerequisites needed to flourish in this industry—and for 765 Pro in particular, a watchful eye out for their rival, the infamous 961 Production.
As the girls’ fame grows, however, their time together as a family diminishes, and now the very popularity they sought is threatening to tear them apart.
A difficult balance of work and bonding must be achieved, or they risk everyone going their separate ways. The personal and professional ordeals of these idols can’t be conquered alone, but with each other’s loving support, any obstacle or hardship can be overcome!
15. White Album 2
The entire story of this anime about music revolves around the three main characters namely Kitahara, Touma, and Ogisa. These three are so relatable that I’m pretty sure some of us could even picture themselves living and experiencing the different social dillemmas each character is facing – they’re as real as it gets.
At first they might look common, typical or plain but later on as the characters reveal more and more of their personalities and problems, they’ll also grow on you.
With the intent of being good friends, a simple admiration turned into something more but the intrusion of another led to a love triangle conflict without even realizing it.
The story grows beyond from here but as much as I would like to tell more, I would rather have you watch it as it would only spoil all the fun.
14. Senki Zesshou Symphogear (Symphogear)
This anime about music is about Tsubasa Kazanari and Kanade Amou—the idol duo known as Zwei Wing—use their songs to power ancient weapons known as “symphogears” to combat a deadly alien race called the “Noise.” While the general public is aware of the Noise’s existence, knowledge of the symphogears are kept a secret.
When the Noise attack one of Zwei Wing’s concerts, Kanade sacrifices herself to protect a young girl named Hibiki Tachibana, leaving Tsubasa devastated and a fragment of her symphogear embedded within Hibiki.
Two years pass and Hibiki is once again dragged into a Noise attack. While rescuing a young girl who has been left behind during the evacuation, she awakens the power of Kanade’s symphogear lying within her.
Although Tsubasa still grieves over the loss of Kanade, both girls must now learn to work together using their powers to defend humanity against the Noise.
