Synopsis:

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?

I was minding my own business the other day and came across a reference to Mnemosyne and then BAM, I thought there were some similarities between it and Ikkitousen.

I mean, there is the fighting, the heavily weighted female casts, (the ecchiness of course), and a supernatural vein to both of them of course.

But honestly, this is more of a gut feeling. If you enjoyed one of these, I just feel like you will probably be entertained by the other.

Kite

Kite
  • Movie (1 ep x 60 min)
  • 1998

As a young girl, Sawa is orphaned when both her parents are brutally murdered and is taken in by a police detective named Akai, who trains her to be a professional killer. He turns Sawa and Oburi, a young boy, into his puppets and makes them kill to fulfill his own sense of justice against child molesters and other harassing members of society.

Kite and Mnemosyne are similar in the amount of explicit content they use. Both violent and sexual themes are present and have an important role in the story.

If you liked the way one of these utilizes the explicit content, you might enjoy the other one.

Kite Liberator

Kite Liberator
  • OVA (1 ep x 58 min)
  • 2008

In a city where rapists and murderers prey on the innocent, the young Monaka Noguchi lives a double life; a clumsy high school student and waitress by day, she transforms into the skilled assassin Angel of Death at night. Her father is an astronaut and has always been out of reach, so Monaka must balance her studies and job, as well as support herself, while also hunting down those who deserve to die. With a cool and calm demeanor, even in the face of bloodshed, it seems that nothing can sway Monaka’s resolve; however, her newest job will prove to be most difficult, and hit a little too close to home...

Both are about female leads kicking ass.

Lots of violence with a sexualised nature in a -noir kind of atmosphere.

Kite Liberator is more similar to Mnemosyne (in contrast to Kite) due to the more sci-fi/fantasy feel between the two.

And whilst Monaka (Liberator) is a hired assassin and Rin (Mnemosyne) is more detective, and are both whimsical sort of characters (though they are distincly very different) who ultimately fight for what they perceive as 'good/justice'.

NightWalker

NightWalker

In the streets of Tokyo, the nightbreed walk as humans, preying on innocent lives and feasting on innocent blood. There is one man who would put a stop to this: Shido, the Night Walker, whose blood is made up of the very thing he aims to protect against: the nightbreed. Along with his co-worker Yayoi, a green fairy named Guni and a clever young secretary named Riho, Shido and his detective agency take cases that would be otherwise missed and forgotten, to seek out the nightbreed and send them from whence they came...

Both Mnemosyne and Nightwalker share in common the following:

1) A detective who's lived longer than ordinary humans (Rin, Shido)

2) A secretary who's rather sweet on the detective (Mimi, Riho)

3) An antagonist who wants the detective for his own (Apos, Cain)

Phantom Quest Corp

Phantom Quest Corp

Ayaka Kisaragi is the best at her profession -- hunting down vampires, spooks, and evil spirits who haunt the citizens of Tokyo! Ghostbusters, beware! The crew of the Phantom Quest Corporation is on the job. From vampires to the undead, there's nothing her hip and paranormal team can't handle... EXCEPT their debt, of course!

Both of these short OVAs focus on a small business that specialises in investigating unusual/supernatural things or people and the main protagonists are both capable women who like their drink. Both are fairly episodic but Phantom Quest Corp is more comedic and older. The similarities between both OVAs are plain to see so if you like one check out the other.
