Dead Leaves and Michiko to Hatchin admittedly have very different animation styles, but I think these will appeal to the same audiences (moreso Dead Leaves->Michiko, than the other way around). Breakouts from prison and wacky antics accompany both stories, and each has a similar flair and feel.

Michiko no Hatchin is a lot like one of the Bee Train girls with guns animes but without the supernatural and occult elements. If you like Michiko, you'd probably like Madlax, and vice versa.

Gungrave

Loners who haven't quite rubbed gangsters the right way, shootouts ensue, and people are in search of their past. There's a lot of drama and stylish bloodshed packed into these little series.

Granted, both of these anime have flaws in their story construction, though it's unfortunately far more prominent in Michiko, whose story is basically the flaw of the series, rather than Gungrave, which - despite some bumpy turns - is ultimately completely satisfying.

Sisters of Wellber

Sisters of Wellber

Thief Tina Lothar came to steal a golden statue, but what she got instead was a princess. Royal Rita was arranged to be married to the prince of a rival kingdom in order to avert a war that would crush the country of Wellber, but after being forced at knifepoint to perform unsavory acts, Rita stabbed her husband-to-be and fled with her newfound-ally Tina. The king of the rival kingdom demanded a public execution of Rita within a time limit or face their cannons of war; so the duo, along with the AI tank Count Gyrano de Borgerac, now set forth to the neutral country of Greedom with a petition that may stop the war. Tina is acting as Rita's bodyguard and has reasons of her own for traveling to Greedom: the man who murdered her parents has been spotted along the way. With a bounty on Rita's head and danger at every turn, the pair must do everything in their power to reach Greedom alive.

Both series are about certain women who have dangerous day jobs which involve escaping with their lives and toting big guns.  Nothing can stop them from protecting the ones they love. No matter what the job these women complete it. If you liked one then you will surely like the other.

Ergo Proxy

Ergo Proxy

In a futuristic world almost barren of life, mankind is confined to mechanized domed cities where A.I.’s control all aspects of life. In this world, humans are no longer born, they are manufactured in a production line; and alongside them live androids known as autoreivs. Within one of these domed sanctuaries named Romdeau lives Re-l Mayer, one of a few citizens who aren’t entirely prevented from thinking. Her grandfather's prominent position and the affection of the scientist Daedalus have left her more free will than is normally allowed, but Re-l has started to question the sanctity of the city and the citizens' perfect way of life. With mysterious beings known as proxies causing havoc and a man named Vincent causing great influence on her life, Re-l must travel outside of the city to find the answers she seeks and discover the mystery behind "the awakening".
