In the streets of Brazil and aboard Michiko's motorcycle, Hana and Michiko will look for Hana's long lost father, try to learn to co-exist and get along together, and stay one step ahead of the police and afro-clad Atsuko.
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".

With no one to turn to and nowhere to run, the choice to join Millenion, the city's most powerful syndicate, seemed like an offer they couldn't refuse. Now, amidst heartache, tragedy, and utmost betrayal, Brandon must take up the gun and help Harry climb the ranks of Millenion to succeed, in order to protect the people he loves, even if it means killing countless others in the process.
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.
The country of Gazth-Sonika has been engaged in a civil war for more than a decade, struggling to stay afloat amidst attacks from the anti-government faction known as Garza. With lies and corruption seeping into the political food chain, a mysterious book in one young girl’s possession may be the only key to uncovering the truth and bringing an end to the war. This book, however, is sought by many. And when the invincible agent Madlax is hired to protect those in search of its truth, Gazth-Sonika dispatches a ruthless soldier to make sure that truth stays in the darkness...
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.
A young man awakens in an abandoned warehouse with no memory of his past. As he leaves the room and ventures further into the warehouse he is attacked by a girl in a mask; she tells him that in order to live he must come at her with all his might. After a fight for his life, he manages to overpower the girl, learning that he is to be trained as a Phantom - an assassin for the Inferno organization. He is also given a new name: Zwei. For three months, Zwei is trained by the girl in the arts of assassination until he has just one final test: to kill a living human being.
I recommend both these animes if you've seen the other because they are both very similar. They both involve gangs and have a similar feel they are also set in America/South America. The main characters also have a certain goal in mind and are both wanted. Also, both have a younger child that must be taken care of in some stage of the anime and the child grows up towards the end of the anime.
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.
