It turns out there are some great anime about acting and actors, both aspiring and veteran, but which are really worth your time? This list ranks the best anime about the acting profession, including older titles, as well as new acting anime that you may not know about.

One great example of acting anime is Skip Beat!, which tells the story of Kyoko Mogami , a 16-year-old who turns heartbreak into inspiration after her crush disappoints her. To teach him a lesson, she sets out to become the top idol in Japan before he can. Another good anime about actors and the art of acting is Millennium Actress, which ends up conflating the past with the present during a career retrospective.
