Synopsis:

In the present day, terrorism is on the rise and the Ua Virus – a biological agent with a 100% kill rate – has been unleashed into the populace. In Shanghai, Canaan is a near-unstoppable soldier who roams the streets, always in the path of a bullet. She is a Synesthetist – a person able to use all five senses at once – who harbors a burning desire for revenge and has a past shrouded in mystery. While the Ua Virus infects more people in the city, others cross paths with Canaan including Minoru, a freelance journalist; Maria, Canaan’s close friend who was infected with the Ua Virus and lost her memory of the incident; and The Snakes, a shady and violent group with mysterious motives. Danger lies at every turn for Canaan and ultimately the rest of mankind…

Burst Angel

Burst Angel

In the future, Tokyo has fallen victim to syndicates, trigger-happy people who run rampant and other groups who don't like to follow the rules. In response, an organization called RAPT has been created, whose goal is to maintain their definition of "peace". In the underground, however, science involving humans and powerful mechanics is progressing at a steady phase, but for what purpose? Meet our four angels who know how to kick butt and raise hell whenever it's needed. Their motto? Shoot first, talk later. Their mission? To make the seemingly impossible possible, of course...

Let's see what Canaan and Burst Angel have in common: A stoic lead who talks with her pistols? Check. A cute, but incompetent sidekick? Check. Bio-engineered horrors? Check.

Behind all of the mecha fighting and pseudo-science, Burst Angel tells the story of a talented girl trying to find her place in the world. Canaan's plot shares these same core elements, but sports a more current story of political intrigue and an engaging supporting cast.

If you liked Burst Angel, but got a little sad every time Jo boarded Django, you're gonna like Canaan.

Toyashi

Except for being 11 episodes shorter Canaan and Burst Angel have a striking resemblance, both the protagonists and storyline.

Both Jo and Canaan share many features, their white hair, calm mind, cool attitude and they both got a precious person which they would sacrifice everything to protect, Even the light shojo-ai is there. 

I'm sure that if you like kick ass girls with guns you would like both of these awesome anime's.

Suimin

Jo and Meg in Burst Angel are very similar to Canaan and Maria from Canaan, and there is a lot of yuri hinting for both. Both anime have lots of action, but moreso mecha in Burst Angel.

HarioSagara

Jo and Meg from Burst Angel have a lot in common with Canaan and Maria from Canaan. Both anime feature fast-paced gunslinger action from their respective stoic protaganists Jo and Canaan. The action is done really well in both anime with lots of gunfighting eye-candy. Meg and Maria also seem to be magnets for getting themselves in dangerous situations and needing to be rescued by Jo or Canaan.

The underlying stories in both anime are the deep relationships between these main characters and the lengths they'll go to for their friendships. If you like anime about awesome female gunslingers that fight for the people they care about than you'll enjoy Burst Angel and Canaan.

Full Metal Panic!

Full Metal Panic!

Gonzo does it again with this action-packed mecha comedy. She's an ordinary high school girl. He's a counterterror agent assigned to protect her from those who would steal the information locked in her mind. OK, so she's not so normal after all. Armored Slave battles and lovers' spats abound as Sousuke and his comrades try to track down the mysterious Gauln before it's too late.

Both anime seem to have women with special powers. as a result of some government doing some kinda shit. and a main character from both anime seem to have grown up in the middle east, grew up as a fight/assasin

wolfangel87

Fighting for their lives, the characters in Canaan and Full Metal Panic struggle to win against a government agency out to kill them.  In each series the girls posses a strange power while the male protagonist has the quick reflexes and assassin like abilities to help them out.

eaper

Both of these series are centered around military operations and include a lot of fire fights with some humor mixed in. Also, a lead female in each has some sort of special power that aids in their battles.

Ga-Rei -Zero-

Ga-Rei -Zero-

Kagura and Yomi are two girls who have a bond that cannot be broken. While once they fought side by side against the supernatural forces that threaten the planet, fate had something different in store for these star-crossed companions. Yet to understand the present, one must first experience the past – a time before Kagura’s involvement with the Supernatural Disaster Prevention Agency. Always cheery and good-natured to a fault, the young Kagura first meets Yomi when she is invited into her home. Over time, the two battle malicious spirits and grow closer together – but soon, more terrifying foes begin to reveal themselves. A swarm of glowing blue butterflies and a mysterious stone are harbingers of darker things to come, and one thing’s for sure: Kagura and Yomi will never be the same.

Both anime have a strong bond between two female characters that grow stronger and stronger as the story unfolds. Both are action packed and have very interesting plots that will make you question and wonder what is going on. Both will also leave you wanting more at the end so check out one if you liked the other.

eaper

Each series is centered around a strong female lead and their connection to another female in the series and involve one getting stronger in order to face what needs to be. They are both also very action driven while having very interesting plots.

slowboris2go

The plot style of Ga-Rei Zero and Canaan are very similar. They both involve a female with a burden and then some other female to play around for most of the series. If you like one, you will like the other :)

Set amidst a backdrop of bustling Chinese metropolises, Canaan and Senkou no Night Raid are action shows about super-powered characters and conspiracies. Both have really pretty backgrounds and some similar characters (I'm looking at you, energetic Chinese girl selling foodstuffs).

wolfangel87

Set in a vast Chinese city landscape, Canaan and Senkou no Night Raid have an action packed sequence.  Both series are filled with characters that have special abilities and have to solve some sort of mystery.

Galadriel

Both Canaan and Senkou no Night Raid are set in a Chinese landscape. Both of them feature amazing action sequences and protagonists possessing psychic powers. Both of them are early works featuring beautiful animation and directing and both share alot of plot elements and character elements as if they were related. If you liked one you will enjoy the other one as well.

Both are great action anime with some amazing shootouts and gun fighting scenes. If you liked one you will probably like other one. Though Jormungand is more or less based on realism and Canaan is more around supernatural. Canaan main heroin is super solder that are able to use all five senses at once, while there is some character in Jormungand that have some ability’s close to inhuman ones, there is none who can use some sort of supernatural ability. Both anime though has strong likable female heroines and also in Canaan there is some sort of mystery you must unravel in entire series, while in Jormungand actions start and ends in 1-2 episodes, there isn't  some consistent plot that keeps going in entire series, so its great watch if you don't have much of time.

elly2nd

Both follow the guns with guns series recipe. It breaks stereotypes and focuses on powerful smart capable women.
