Synopsis:

Maia Mizuki has just had all of her hopes and dreams shattered. Not only did she fail her entrance exam to the Ocean Agency, a prestigious marine law enforcement agency, but she’s also been left penniless, homeless, and alone. She soon finds herself caught in a gun fight between two scantily clad women and a pair of bank robbers. The women are from Nereids, a private detective agency that will do anything if the price is right. One thing leads to another and Maia takes a job working for Nereids, where she"ll receive room and board. Her jobs range from collecting rent to saving pets to capturing criminals. Now she just has to balance her life of "fighting crime" with her dream of one day being a part of the Ocean agency!

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...

Although the underlying plot of Daphne in the Brilliant Blue is not nearly as heavy as that of Burst Angel, the overall "feel" of the two anime is roughly similar. Burst Angel never really makes up its mind whether it it wants to take itself seriously or just be a light fanservicy romp, whereas Daphne in the BrilliantBlue gives the viewer very little beyond fanservice. All the same, the two anime have a lot in common -- beyond the stereotypical "girls with guns" theme. If you like the one, you'll surely like the other.

It's not exactly the same thing, but there's a lot of similarities within both. Hot chicks with guns, how can you go wrong!!

Action girl anime always makes me happy, although I find Burst Angel to be inferior, they are both very similar.

Black Lagoon

Black Lagoon

Rokuro Okajima is a small-time salaryman who is carrying documents for his company, when the ship he's traveling on is attacked by pirates. Kidnapped, he discovers to his dismay that his employers' main concern is to ensure the documents don't get into the wrong hands, even if it means sending the carrier to the bottom of the sea. Now, with his former life ruined and his kidnappers seeming comparatively friendly, "Rock" decides to join their merry band of mercenaries, and sets out with a new career to the shadier corners of the South China Sea.

Black Lagoon and Daphne in the Brilliant Blue are both series quite aquatic in nature revolving around outfits providing services along the lines of mercenaries, couriers, or bodyguards. Daphne is arguably more ridiculous, but they are both to some degree lighthearted.
