The idea behind Noir and Kiddy Grade and the way each episode rolls out is REALLY quite the same. You have 2 girls who are hired assassins in Noir, and basically in Kiddy Grade you have the same thing, but they actually do it as a job. Both pairs in the series also have very unique and tuned abilities, allowing them to do incredible things, not to mention the main characters are 'hot girls' in each one.
Noir and Kiddy Grade are similar in many aspects, both animes focuse on revealing the past of one of the main protagonists, both animes feature a unique type of protagonists pairing and receiving missions and also fulfills them and also both feature similar animation style. Even though, Noir is abit more dark than Kiddy Grade, and it doesn't feature sci-fi/futuristic aspects nor Fan Service aspects in what i mentioned above, both of them seem to be very much alike. If you like one of this two shows, be sure to check the other one as well.
Earth has been struck by a major catastrophe, causing most of the land to be covered by water. Meet Aika Sumeragi, a scavenger who unearths everything from nostalgic treasures to lost technology from the depths - for a price.

Now, with danger afoot, Aika finds herself smack dab in the middle of a conspiracy involving secret weapons, a crazed scientist and of course, panty shots galore!
both Kiddy Grade and Agent Aika focuses on agents of some organizations who fight against evil. While Agent Aika exceeds in terms of nudity and panty shots, Kiddy Grade is abit more serious though it doesnt lack Fan Service as well. So if you like one for sure you will enjoy the other one as well.
In a far and distant future, men and women have become mortal enemies. Each living on seperate planets, an interstellar war is being fought between the two very different peoples.

Kiddy Grade and Vandread both have alarmingly similar aspects: a healthy mix of ecchi, a good plot, plentiful humor and odd situations, all of which are compelling and keep your attention.
Well... if you like the combination of fanservice, space-theme and adventure, but still want a nice storyline and somewhat likeable characters then there are few anime other than Kiddy Grade and Vandread to watch.
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 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...
Both Kiddy Grade and Burst Angel feature strong feminine characters working in groups under organizations. Like Kiddy Grade, Burst Angel also features the theme of underlying treachery within an organization that is intended to be helping people. The amount of fighting action is also similar, as well as the relationships between the characters. Overall, both of these anime have similar themes, characters, and ending results.
Well, both series contain action, cool outfits and cute chicks as main heroines. In my opinion Kiddy Grade is a bit better than Burst Angel because of it's plot. But on second thought both series are equally watchable. The main similiarity are the badass chicks knowing everything, from hand to hand fighting, up to controlling jackass Mobile Suits aka "Gunndams" ^^.
Both shows feature strong female protagonists working in secret organizations in groups (or pairs in Kiddy Grade's case). Both shows feature a shoujo-ai sub-plot and they are both defined by its sci-fi aspect. Both feature some mecha battles (which are kinda rare in Kiddy Grade but they do exist) and both shows deal with conspiracies within their organizations. If you liked Kiddy Grade you will definitely enjoy watching Burst Angel!

How will her new friendships fare, when secrets of the past and present are brought forth to spark a fight for the crown, and more?
Kiddy Grade and Mai-Otome feature a similar style of storyline. Both series spend a good number of early episodes with their characters just living out their normal lives - well, as normal as being part of a superpowered soldier organization can be. At some point, though, the time comes when the protagonists get unceremoniously booted from these lives. They must then embark upon a rogue battle against both former friends, as well as new enemies, to reclaim them. The two series may use different styles to tell these stories, but they are alike enough at their core to make each a solid bet for fans of the other.
1st: all the things Cetonis mentions are correct, and also do Kiddy Grade and Mai-Otome share that the protagonists are female, look quite young and the superpowers are artificial: we're dealing with a science fiction.
So liking one means at least considering the other.
Both are about girls with superpowers in a sci-fi setting and both spend many episodes in the beginning on showing the characters' normal life. As such they both begin with a mix comedy, friendship and action. From there they to continue to amuchdarker plot, which has been built up to during the comedic part.
