Rin is a private investigator with an advantage: near immortality. Thanks to the spores of the Yggdrasill tree, both she and her assistant Mimi have lived many years longer than the average person. That isn’t to say that being immortal doesn't have its problems. With 'angels' wanting to devour them, the being Apos sending wave after wave of professional assassins to kill them, and constant hangovers from long nights of drinking, being immortal still has its downsides. With Apos' attempts at removing them from the picture increasing, can Rin and Mimi figure out what he is after so they can return to their morning shots of Vodka?
For Kouta and Yuka, finding the bloody naked young girl on the beach would change their lives forever, for better or for worse. Unable to speak or function as a normal human being, she is named Nyu by the duo, and taken into their home in an effort to save her. But what neither teenager knows is that this innocent young girl is actually a killing machine -- an experiment gone terribly wrong -- and it is only a matter of time before the murderer in her awakens again...
Elfen Lied and Mnemosyne revel in bloody violence, action, and nudity- so if those are your bag, these series are for you. That being said, they're also pretty engaging mysteries featuring tough female characters with special abilities and shadowy pasts.
Gore, Killings and Fantasy, Ecchi; if you look for these kinds of things in your daily anime, then Mnemosyne and Elfen Lied are for you. Both animes feature deadl, mysterious women, with secrets. Both animes have an element of ecchiness in them, along with many gory scenes.
This two anime are very much alike and especialy in ecchi and horror aspects.While Elfen Lied is abit more concentrated on horror with some pointless ecchi aspects Mnemosyne combines extreme horror with sexual themes in a way that no other anime does.Of course there are many differences between this two but in both ecchi and horror aspect they are kinda same.Im sure that if you liked one of this two shows you will definitely like the other as well.
Elfen Lied and Mnemosyne are right up there with each other in terms of similar gore, nudity, and vulgarity levels (high). Both of these anime also have strong non-human female protagonists. Only major difference to note here, is that Mnemosyne does major year leaps forward in time every continuing episode, while Elfen Lied's story is told all in the same time-line.
So in turn, if you like one, you will most likely enjoy the other.
Elfen Lied and Mnemosyne are perfect for each other! Both of these series are extremely action packed with great fighting scenes and tons of gory images in which the non-human females leads are the ones displaying.
Blood, torn off limbs, and heartache are consistent visuals throughout both anime series. With a mysterious past that is revealed in the end, both animes are heavy on the dark side and are abundant in gore and nudity
Both of these animes are targeted at an older audience, and both have a female lead with a supernatural ability that forces them to struggle against a secretive organization of sorts.
Mnemosyne and Elfen Lied are both two of my favorite animes of their genre in their own right. They both have a very unique and often times outright sadistic feel to them. They both follow a female lead character who revels in fighting and killing while at the same time having a totally different and kindhearted side to them. I would definitely recommend you watch the other if you watch one, as I feel they compliment each other nicely.
A great deal of suspense, graphic violence, and nudity make Elfen Lied and Mnemosyne natural companions.
Both have blood, suspense, and great story lines. If you like one, chances are you'll like the other
A giant wall looms over Tokyo, shielding the city from a dangerous otherworld called the 'Hell's Gate'. Within the city, things are no less terrifying because Contractors, psychopathic killers with phenomenal powers, have started to appear. These killers are compelled to pay a price every time they use their powers, often in the form of a meaningless or painful task. As their deadly habits rack up a gruesome death toll, Kirihara Misaki and her team from the Foreign Affairs Public Security struggle to solve the cases and bring the Contractors under control. Their task is further confounded by the interference of a masked individual they title Messier Code BK201, a man with abilities that allow him to fight and defeat the Contractors. Who is this BK201? How can the Contractors be stopped permanently? And what does the appearance of the Hell's Gate mean for the people of Tokyo?
While not being as ''echi'', Darker Than Black has a resembling atmosphere and brings you to enjoy a similar cast of characters burdened with their own curse.
Mnemosyne and DtB share a very similar tone because of the gory-yet-slick approach they take. In both, the protagonists have special powers and use them to solve certain mysteries, often with action-packed consequences. Importantly, though, both anime revolve around the overarching mystery of the protagonists' backgrounds. Mnemosyne is definitely more explicit in terms of sex and violence, but it is nonetheless just as story-driven.
These series contain remarkably similiar style of storytelling and concept. While DtB progresses down the more supernatural heavy route, Mnemosyne takes the path of mystery. However, both contain characters who are easy to enjoy and plot lines that keep you enthralled until the very end. Good to watch.
Both neo-noir, sci-fi/fantastic setting with action but not excessive amounts, and plots that are relatively episodice but eventually connecting up whilst still remaining puzziling.
Mnemosyne is much bloodier, highly sexualised, and more 'techy'
Both anime's involved some supernatural powers.. the contractors in Darker Than Black and the Angels in Mnemosyne... and were mission based with plot underlying the episodes. Obviously mnemosyne is an ova so it doesn't have as many missions before is shows the true development of the plot, but if you enjoyed either of these shows, you are sure to like the other
Maebara Keiichi, an ordinary high-school boy, has transferred to a new school in Hinamizawa, a small rural village. At the outset everything seems peaceful and Keiichi becomes friends with a nice group of schoolgirls with whom he spends many idle summer afternoons. Suddenly violence encroaches upon the blissful peace of the village and Keiichi becomes entangled in an endless cycle of fear and death. The inconsistent, but inevitable horrors of Hinamizawa are told and retold becoming an endless and inescapable nightmare of insanity. Will it end even if the mystery of Hinamizawa is solved?
If you get thrilling goosebumps from the torture and horror found in Mnemosyne, then you will surely get that same feeling from watching Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni. Their plots may differ significantly, but both anime really know how to make you wince through bodily torture and astonish your mind with a deep mystery.
When it comes to bloody torture, Higurashi is more, more, more. If Mnemosyne whetted your appitate for disturbing, gory punishment, I strongly recommend Higurashi.
Mystery, mystery and one more mystery a person who likes mysteries, unknowns, and madly passing plot, this is the anime for him.
Are you looking for blood? Half crazed people of various backgrounds? Mystery? Either of these shows may satisfy that need. Higurashi centers itself around mysterious deaths in a small town while Mnemosyne's mystery focuses more around the protagonist's origin and relation to the world around here. Both contain blood and violence, though in different ways. Both are interesting shows for anyone looking to dabble their toes in some macabre.
Both series really plunge you into a supernatural mystery and includes some very painful scenes. They don't just stop at blood and torture though. The stories start twisted but become more interesting and sad as you think about the experiences you are forced to watch. You'll find yourself putting together puzzle pieces that weren't even acknowledged during the show. Give it a try.
Much to the annoyance of Kei, he and his childhood friend Katou have died, having been torn apart by a train. But rather than finding themselves at the gates of heaven, the duo materialize in a room full of strangers and a giant black sphere known as GANTZ. As if dying once wasn’t bad enough, the occupants of the room are then forced to embark on dangerous missions to kill strange aliens; missions that very few return from. Now, Kei, Katou, and a well-endowed friend must fight for their freedom with an arsenal of guns, high powered suits, and a very low chance of survival.
If you are like me and love blood and gore, then both of these series has it all for you. Guns, naked chicks, and lots of fighting with liberal amounts of bodily fluids being tossed about. You may or may not like it, but it gets the blood pumping.
Sex, gore, heartbreak, and increasingly difficult objectives sets the precedent for both of these animes.
Dark, twisted, violent and very mature, yet for some reason very intriguing. Both of these shows just make you want to keep going as you watch them. While these shows may have more of a niche audience, anyone who enjoyed on of these is likely to enjoy the other.
Gantz is the reason why the term mindf*ck was invented. By the time you understand what the implications are of what has happened, you have to deal with whether you even want to think this way... with MNEM.. the lead is beautiful, naked, sexual, and immortal, with GANTZ there's only one sex scene but the gore is just as over the top.
In feudal Japan, Kurou and his servant Benkei are fleeing from Kurou's elder brother, who has recently ascended to the throne. In a forest, they come across a house and a strange woman by the name of Kuromitsu, who agrees to harbor them under one condition: that they do not peer into the inner chambers. Soon, they are attacked by the Red Army; they are searching for Kuromitsu, whose blood holds immortality. Fatally wounded, Kurou drinks some of Kuromitsu's blood and gains immortality along with strange abilities; but shortly after, Kurou is seemingly decapitated and wakes up centuries later in a ruined city. In this twisted future the Red Army is omnipresent and still searching for Kuromitsu’s blood, while a rebel army seeks to keep them from acquiring it. With threats at every turn and fueled by his obsession, Kurou sets forth to find Kuromitsu and seek his revenge on the Red Army.
Both are gritty animes without qualms in showing blood or more explicit materials (though kurozuka is much more reserved).
Both are semi-horror animes set over a long scale of time; which ultimately makes each setting in this sort of neo-noir post apocalyptic sci-fi kind of setting.
Both series to an extent are just a bit of fun to watch along, with explanation of the plot only really coming about the end, and being sort of trippy at that.
The plot runs in a somewhat similar fashion, as well as the style of the anime. Both will probably more or less leave you hanging on until the end. Also there are many plot elements that are the same, such as immortality. Other than that it's a "gut feeling".
both Kurozuka and Mnemosyne feature extreme horror as a main aspect, gory elements and a main protagonist that is seeked by other people because they possess supernatural powers, immortality more exactly.Mnemosyne features a better story development and character development then Kurozuka and involves nudity as a main aspect.Even so if you like one of this two for sure you will enjoy the other one as well.
I'm a huge fan when it comes to the perspective of an immortal. What these 2 anime have in common is such. Kurozuka and Mnemosyne give you a glimpse into an immortal's long ass life. In Mnemosyne, you get to see Rin and her life over a 200 year time period. In Kurozuka, you view Kuro's life over a 1000 year span. It's freaking awesome. On top of the immortal life span, you have massive gore and a pretty interesting plot. I mean how many plots span over 200 or 1000 years? Not many. Ya your a fan like me, then by golly you will love both of these maniacal animes.
