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.

Weiss Kreuz

Weiss Kreuz

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.

TheBurningCrow TheBurningCrow says...

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!

Blue Seed

Blue Seed

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. 

Nanashi Nanashi says...

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.

Zaion ~i wish you were here~

Zaion ~i wish you were here~

In the present time, the meteorite-based M-34 virus is being spread at a horrific pace: infecting thousands, and mutating their bodies into alien-like creatures who destroy everyone in their path. While NOA -- an elite team of cybernetic soldiers -- work to contain the threat, a new weapon named Ai is being trained to destroy the virus once and for all. Unknown to all are her true powers -- especially once she falls in love with NOA member Yuji. Time is running out.. who will inherit the earth? The virus, or humanity?

Both of these series revolve around strange mutating things, either people or plants and animals. Of course the use of super human power suits is in both too, however I Wish you Were Here uses nano-technology to create the suits.

Blue Gender

Blue Gender

In the early 21st century, the emergence of an incurable condition known as B-cell growth led some of the affected to become "Sleepers" - people put under stasis until a cure could be found. Yuji Kaido is one such Sleeper who awakens, several decades later, to a horrifying new reality. Giant bugs known as Blue have invaded the Earth, eating everything - and everyone - in sight. Now, all Yuji can do is escape from the city with the ones who saved him from his inevitable death, and make their way towards Second Earth: mankind's new home in space.

Blue Gender and Bubblegum Crisis have a lot of similarities just in elements introduced in each one. If you like strange robots or bugs taking over the world in one, you will like that in the other. Also the use of power suits in BGC is similar to the use of Shrikes in Blue Gender. Overall I liked Blue Gender better though.
