Both series involve Mid-aged men who loses someone they loved. Then as their plots advance, both revolve around family love (more between father and daughter). They both give the same feeling. So if you like one, make sure to check out the other!
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...
For me, Gonzo releases fall into two categories. I either love them, or find them mildly interesting. Bakuretsu Tenshi and Solty Rei both fall into the latter category. There isn't anything "wrong" with them, just that they're not to my taste as much as say Red Garden or Speed Grapher.
I think people who enjoy one will enjoy the other because of the similarities in characters. The strong female team, who seem to have abnormally large breasts and skintight outfits will definitely appeal to the male audience.
There is the same kind of CG used in both Solty and Bakuretsu, however Solty doesn't have the mech battles and instead uses cyborgs and modified humans for fighting. The settings are also very similar, in a futuristic Tokyo, where the population has been divided into those that have and those that don't.
Follow interstellar bounty hunters Spike Spiegel and Jet Black as they scour the galaxy for criminals with prices on their heads. Hoping to escape their past, they live on the spaceship Bebop, but it's a dangerous business and old enemies don't forget easily. Allies come from unlikely sources, however, as they find comrades in the beautiful swindler Faye Valentine, the genius child hacker Ed and the genetically engineered 'data dog' Ein. Will they be able to help each other though their respective struggles, or is their fate really inevitable?
Hard-boiled gunslinger mercenaries in gritty science fiction setting. There's more than just the superficial tying the characters together, though. Aditionally, there's the primarily episodic structure of both shows that leads to gradually unfolding mysteries and character developmet.
In a dystopic city of the future, there has been a rash of killings at the hands of prototype robots.

Yet beneath the random violence, a sinister plot is unfolding -- a situation so dangerous that it threatens not only Batou, but innocent humans and cyborgs alike. Can the team of Section 9 unravel the mystery of these murders before they suffer the same fate as the victims?
Batou and Roy Revant are something outwardly alike. Besides in both titles presents a kind of old friend, which tryind to kill main characters from the partially immobile state. Also in the future there are old-style cars.
What happens when authority and consequence are removed? When the inmates truly run the asylum. On the spaceship Ryvius there are those who would fight for order, and many more who would fight to destroy it. Love, hate, anger, greed, avarice, and perhaps hope are the fuel for the Ryvius, and only one can save those who call it home...
Two sci-fi series with very similar tonal elements and a certain resemblance in the charaters and setting. They also share some of the storytelling method in the way that mysteries gradually unfold as we go, though some ambiguity still remains by the end.
