Girls with guns. Both lead characters look similiar, have special abilities, and protect their not so skilled friend. Both use weapons for their professions.

Girls with guns, familiar relationships, good gunfights, a journey of self-discovery.

Both series are at their hearts "shoot em up" gun shows, with lots of action. However both have some sci-fi elements (more in Burst Angel, which has mechas), and a few other strong elements as well. For example Burst Angel has a very "western" feel to it, while Speed Grapher has a more "supernatural" and "crime- drama" feeling to it. Speed Grapher is more sexual and a little more mature then Burst Angel (not that Burst Angel is for kids....it's not really). Both series are fun shows with great "Girls with Guns" action, and strong female characters. Speed Grapher is darker then Burst Angel. Both  read more

both are mecha anime but while Bacuretsu is more serious FMP has more comedy involved.

If you're a fan of Yoko and fan service, Bakuretsu Tenshi's Meg will drive you crazy!

Both animes involve a lot of really amazing shooting/gunwork, and have main characters that have almost split personalities; a really tough, cool side, and a goofy or unexpected side. Also, both Vash and Jo have pasts that are unusual/mysterious for a lot of the series, and those pasts platy integral roles in how each series develops.

Both are very much fun to watch and have a rag tag team that will blow your mind!

Similar "Powerful girls" feeling involving a hothead and a tranquil individual who get along so well it almost suggests to yuri. The also both work for much larger & powerful organizations that they end up leaving later in the series to find "true justice". They are both in a slightly dystopian future with major power struggles and where technology and cyber enhancements reach a point that seems natural. Also they both have an indirect ecchi theme throughout with the outfits and camera angles. And the main character with latent powers struggles with severe memory loss that slowly and painfully regains as the viewer and main  read more

The series "Daphne in the Brilliant Blue" (Hikari to Mizu no Daphne) and "Burst Angel" (Bakuretsu Tenshi) have several things in common. Both stories are set in a future time where the government employs hired mercenaries to track down criminals. The main cast in both of these series feature a group of skilled females (aka girls with guns) who wear rather revealing outfits. At least one of the main characters in each of these series has a somewhat mysterious past that is explored over the course of the story.

The bubbly characters, loving relationships and hilarious sisterly ridiculing... it's all here with a few giant spoonfuls of awesomeness.

it is another anime with some really kick ass people in it that is right up the ally of guns and cool action sequences

Both have the same art style and take place in a futuristic setting.

Solty Rei is more drama and character development,while Burst Angel is more action focused though.

Both series focus around a team of girls in cyberpunk / future Tokyo, but here's a breakdown of their most similar characteristics.

BGCT = Burst Angel (near future)
year 2040 = year 2050
Priss = Jo (rebel/lone wolf)
Linna = Meg (normal girl from the country)
Nene = Amy (youngest girl, genius computer hacker)
Sylia = Sei (the leader that has some rich resources)
Mackey = Kyohei (wimpy teenage boy that hangs around)
Galatea = Maria (mysterious but powerful rival related to one of the main characters)
Nigel = Leo (older mechanic dude, although there’s also a guy named Leon in  read more

Hot women, mechs, and lots of action. all you ever wanted in an anime these shows deliver. 
report Recommended by Gamicon
Mecha is pretty common in battle and the killing spree is another. Story-wise, it's pretty even in depth and both the main characters are like weapons being programmed to kill whoever stands in their way. 'Bakuretsu Tenshi' has more modern fighting with advanced technologies, 'Betterman' on the other hand puts its interest on the impossible which is transformation. While watching both series, all you want to see the MCs do is to take down enemies as many as they can and that is the main pleasure of the series.  
report Recommended by ShanaFlame
Both are cyberpunk anime set in futuristic versions of Tokyo and center around the deeds of female vigilantes-type groups. Both series also contain elements of mecha - Jo with Django and The Knight Sabers with their power suits. The characters also have rough personality/role equivilents; Sei being Sylia, Jo being Priss, Meg being Linna and Amy being Nene.

Girls with guns? Anyone? Both shares a good quality of action packed scenes. So if you're into some action, then you may want to check out Bayonetta.  
report Recommended by rusette
Aside form charactersdesign similarities. Burst Angel is alot like evangelion. Sei is like Misato, Tachibana like shinji ( just not as emotional). Has mechas, action, searches for a deep understanding of oneself. Instead of angels you have searches for glowing brains. First episode are similar in the way both come to a new agency and experience action right away
