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?
A mysterious new hacker known only as the Puppet Master threatens to create chaos, erasing and rewriting the memories of his victims: humans who have cast away their physical body to become cyborgs. Is he an evil genius, or could he signal the beginning of a new age in the relationship between man and machine?
It's very hard to find two anime in completely different genre that still manage to feel the same. Step into the world of Ghost in the Shell and Mnemosyne. Both have a strong female lead and outstanding soundtracks. However, that isn't the main reason why if you liked one you'll enjoy the other. Their storytelling element is remarkable similiar and incredibly well thought out and detailed. Well worth watching both.
The obvious connection between these two series would be the female leads. They both, in different ways, have to deal with immortality. Additionally, there is nudity and gore in both series giving them a 90's vibe. If you like this 90's anime ideology I recommend both shows!
Both have buxom investigators that carry the series. In MNEM's case she is an immortal, in GITS she's an android and can save her consciousness onto the net. Both series chart the evolution of technology and the web and how it changes society. In GITS it takes place within a few years, in MNEM's case it spans almost 100 years. A little warning, though GITS has hardly any nudity, MNEM is packed with skin sqeezing, sword ripping, and sexual encounters.
When an odd string of suicides begins to occur at a local high rise building, most of the townsfolk treat it as an unfortunate series of events. One girl, however, senses something more sinister at work - especially when a close friend of hers falls mysteriously ill. After witnessing one of the deaths for herself, Shiki begins to realize that a strange connection exists between each of the girls, and predicts a total of eight will die. With seven dead and the accuracy of her prediction unclear, she sets out to put an end to the killings. Yet, as she nears the truth, she finds herself closer and closer to the brink of death; will Shiki become the town's savior, or the next victim?
Both anime's seem to have a strange sort of company who does work with the mysterious, and through this, there is a lot of battles... In both anime's there are spirits that must be fought, and magickal/spiritual powers that are involved in the battles...
There are also characters who assist in the battles, but have no actual powers themselves... There is a lot of blood shed in both animes along with mature themes as well...
They are both ova's but the story's go in completely different ways so if thats okay with you, and you enjoyed one, you should enjoy the other
both of this anime are short in episode/movie number but both of them have many things in common and one that is the most visible is the extreme horror aspect from both of this two anime.Even though this two have some differences in terms of genres when we talk about intense, extreme, bloody horror animes this two are very much alike and if you seen one of this two for sure you will like the other one also
Mnemosyne and Sinners revolve around a little company devoted to solving crimes. Rin and Shiki set out to solve each crime enshrouded in mystery by any means possible. The catch is each woman is equipped with a unbeatable power. The result usually ends up being a bloodbath gore fest and only leads to a much bigger and insane mystery. If gore and mystery and killing is your thing, then enjoy.
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".
Both shows generally have a dark atmosphere, with a villian that is unknown. Both also feature a strong female lead character.
Both Rin (Mnemosyne) and Re-l (Ergo Proxy) are remarkably sharp women in remarkable and strange worlds. Both series are set in very different worlds from our own, and make for dramatic tales with a very slight touch of humor and lots of subtle sexuality (ok, Mnemosyne isn't very subtle). Lots of action while still managing to focus on the main characters' emotions in both series. A good match!
Mireille Bouqet has become a reputable assassin working in France. However, all changes after she meets Kirika, a mysterious young girl who knows nothing about her past but possesses killing skills that dwarf hers. Further intrigue unfolds as both characters explore their shadowy past and come to a head with a clandestine organization that seeks to control destiny itself.
Violence, assassins, mercenaries this are the things that makes Noir and Mnemosyne similar.In both animes we have kick ass female leads helped by their asistants/partners.Both animes have an astonishing mystery aspect which makes them even more interesting.The difference is that Mnemosyne has some horror/ecchi aspects which Noir doesnt have but from what i mentioned above this two are very similar.If you seen and liked one of this two then im sure you will love the other one as well.
I recall watching Noir and I recall watching Mnemosyne and I definately recall thinking "kick ass" at various parts of watching both.
Mnemosyne and Noir are two series where they start of with mysterious characters and take the time to develop them and slowly uncover the mystery. In addition, both are pitted against assasins and an organization with nefarious plans.
I think overall that Noir is slightly better (and also longer), but if that you enjoyed Noir, you will also gain some enjoyment from watching Mnemosyne.
Ryoko Yakushiji is the gifted and beautiful Superintendent of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police; no matter what the problem – science gone wrong or supernatural monsters – it seems there is nothing she cannot solve. With her new partner, the mild mannered Junichiro Izumida, she sets about tackling some of Tokyo's most terrible crimes. However, as Izumida quickly discovers, Ryoko's talent comes with a big ego and some strange personal baggage; cleaning up the streets of Tokyo becomes not just a matter of finding the bad guys, but trying to survive Ryoko's attitude problem as well!
I can't quite say exactly why Mnemosyne and Ryoko's Case File seem similar. Sure they both involve investigation, and there is the supernatural nature of both of them, but it goes beyond that.
It was while watching the later half of Ryoko's case files that I most felt the similarity, specifically regarding the type of plot and the overall story arc.
I'm fairly certain if you enjoyed one, you will probably enjoy the other.
As strong female characters in Mnemosyne and Ryoko’s Case File investigate bizarre and supernatural events they are also trying to find love along the way. While Mnemosyne involves more explicit content the stories are quite similar in attitude and feel.
