If you liked BGC: 2040, you may be generally interested in Cyperpunk. If so, Ghost in the Shell is what you're looking for.
Another kind of cyberpunk story. Cybernetic soldiers in a digital future world.
Cyberpunk and robots. That's the main theme of this movie. It's got a completely different story but they still keep to the cyberoutfits. This is also a great classic that you just have to check out.
While Ghost in the Shell and Bubblegum crisis have differences, they share the theme of tough girl/woman with high tech equipment. Both portray gloomy futures where heroines fight for a living and manage their lifes as secret warriors.
Aya, Omi, Ken and Yoji are four seemingly normal high school boys, who make up an elite assassin group known only as Weiss. The hits involve taking out corporate businessmen and corrupt politicians; however, trouble arises during a routine job, when Weiss clashes with a rival gang of assassins, Schwarz. With Schwarz in the way, they will reach the limits of their elite skills while trying to defeat their ultimate target: the Takatori family...
From the Knight Sabers in BGC2040, to the group of assassins Weiss, both groups battle their enemies. The four bishounen in Weiss take out evil corporation heads and corrupt people, and the 4 cuties in BGC2040 knock around berserk robots as a passtime. Like one and you'll like both.
Bubblegum Crisis is a similar feel to Weiss Kreuz in that it has a group of 4 female vigilantes trying to save the city from boomers, whereas Weiss is a group of 4 males saving the city from an evil corporate family. Of course girls in skin tight power suits isn't a bad thing either!
In the present, Japan is under assault by murderous creatures known as Aragami whose origin and purpose remain unknown. The fate of Japan and the world itself lies with one young woman named Momiji who bears the burden of the Kushinada -- the one who must be sacrificed to silence the Aragami forever. With the help of Mamoru Kusanagi (a human and Aragami hybrid), and an agency filled with firepower-toting bodyguards, Momiji must use her Aragami-sensing powers to help save mankind; but will she ultimately have to lose her own life to save the lives of so many others?
The idea of both Bubblegum Crisis and Blue Seed is the same, but instead of giant mutating robots taking over the city, you have a bunch of giant mutating plants and animals. Both of these have very good action too. If you liked one, you are sure to like the other.
Ah yes, the senseless destruction of a city by the hands of the people who are trying to save it. While the villians in Blue Seed are of the organic variety contrary to Bubblegum Crisis, I feel that the introduction of carbon to the mix will only heighten the experience of the viewer.
Hazama is a private detective, who becomes fatally wounded in a run-of-the-mill case. In order to survive, Hazama is tranformed into the legendary cyborg 8Man -- to put an end to the cybernetically-enhanced criminals' wave of crime. But as the death count increases, Hazama soon begins to question how much of his real self is left, and if the emotionless 8Man he becomes is really in control...
Melty Lancer is a futuristic tale of terrorists and genetic manipulation. After being disbanded 5 years ago, the 6 women who make up the special forces team called Melty Lancer have been reinstated -- being led, this time, by a suspicious character. The crew of Melty Lancer must race against the clock to solve the mystery behind Iyenesco, and in turn, to save the world.
The idea of female vigilantes fighting for the fate of a city that is expressed in Bubblegum Crisis could be compared to the squad of female melty lancers who are fighting to save the galaxy with the use of power-suits in Melty Lancer. If you liked one of these anime, you should enjoy the other.
