Burst Angel and Witchblade have very similar visual styles, and both shows maintain strong female character leads who have to fight through extreme situations. While some romance is hinted at, it does not dominate the primary/secondary plots.
If you liked Burst Angel then for sure you will enjoy Witchblade and vice-versa mainly because this shows have many things in common, from plot similarities to similar animation style and directing and both feature strong female protagonists who have to pass through difficult, extreme situations. Also both shows feature some romance aspects. I'm sure that if you liked one then for sure you will enjoy the other one as well.

If you watched one of these anime because you like to see hot girls in action then the other one should please you too. Both anime (Bakuretsu Tenchi and Agent Aika) contain fantastic, futuristic technology development, hazardous fights, spaceships and an adorable female crew.
An organization known to the dark side of the world as Chronos claims to desire world peace, employing the top thirteen assassins in the world known as 'Erasers.' They each have a weapon customized to fit their style, all made out of orichalcum ore, the strongest material available on Earth. Number 13, Train Heartnet (codenamed Black Cat) is the most famous and revered of the thirteen Chronos numbers, but in the light of a tragic event he has come to question his path in life. Together with Sven Vollfied, a struggling bounty hunter and a living weapon named Eve, Train takes up a job as a bounty hunter - all the while running from the other Erasers and Creed Diskenth, a crazed man whom wants him to join the Apostles of the Stars, a group made to destroy Chronos.
If you enjoyed all the action that Burst Angel provides, then I recommend you watch Black Cat. Jo (the main character from Burst Angel) and Train (the main character from Black Cat) are very different, but I fell in love with both of them. They each have an admirable willpower to reach their goals and the strength and moves to back it up. Black Cat gives more character depth in the end, as well as a more intricate storyline.
It has been a year since Rock joined the crew of the Black Lagoon, and while becoming accustomed to life in Roanapur, he also gets involved in many dangerous circles. With the level of violence increasing by the day, Hotel Moscow takes advantage of Rock's talents, and he soon finds himself intimately involved in their struggle for power. A series of events eventually lead Rock back to Japan as a translator for Balalaika, where he soon finds himself confronted with the choice of returning to his old life or continuing with the new. While questioning where his morals lie, Rock must decide, once and for all, whether or not to call the Black Lagoon home.
Burst Angel was a show that had a great deal of mecha action, but when Jo started shooting it up it was a great time. The second season of Black Lagoon continues that trend with great shooter action and a lot more suspense. Jo was a great shot and her personality was enjoyable, but with Revy you get a true shooter with a badass attitude. Have fun listening to those bullets sing!
A devastating earthquake strikes Tokyo, leaving the city in ruins. Man's only hope is to use boomers, an artificial humanoid form.

The only hope of stopping them is the Knight Sabers, a group of 4 female heroes in form-fitting power suits, with which they can perform amazing feats of strength and agility.
An mounting evil is poised to take over Tokyo, and a group of women is all that can save the city. If you enjoyed the hectic antics of Meg, Jo, and Sei, you're gonna love the powersuited ladies, Priss, Sylia, Nene, and Linna.
Both series also feature a plot that draws together seemingly unrelated incidents into a coherent masterplan and culimating in an epic battle.
