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.

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.

Akira

Akira

Following the disaster wrought upon the world by a mysterious being called ‘Akira’, Neo Tokyo is now in social and economic turmoil. In such a decaying city, feisty Kaneda and his shy friend Tetsuo survive by running around in a biker gang, chasing local rivals and generally evading the police. Everything changes, however, when Tetsuo crashes into a strange-looking boy during a bike chase and the military ends up taking him away. When he eventually returns to his friends, he’s no longer the same weak little boy they always knew – in fact, a military experiment has turned him into something beyond human imagination. While the military is intent on reclaiming its specimen at any cost, Tetsuo is sick of being bullied around and is about to show everyone, including his friend Kaneda, exactly who is boss.

Task Task says...

Akira is a long movie, Bubblegum is a series; both are highly futuristic with lasers and explosions.

More importantly, the stories are complicated and convoluted with the characters being very slightly more important than the action. At points both are confusing, but both are quality works that many have enjoyed thoroughly.

Both series are about groups of women who have dangerous day jobs which involve escaping with their lives and toting big guns. No matter what the job these women complete it. If you liked one then you will surely like the other.

You'll find Magic Knight Rayearth as the fantasy counterpart of BGC 2040, and it's not just because of the idea of girls saving the world. They're similar because the plots play around hidden conflicts and the idea that the antagonist/s are not just faceless evils. The fights are also not delivered with the promise of the "we'll-surely-win-because-we're-the-protagonists" mentality, but rather have personal feelings involved.
