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?
Ten years have passed since the demise of the bubble economy, a time that polarized the world into two groups of people: the rich and the poor. In the present day, Saiga Tatsumi (a former war photographer) has been hired to investigate a secret club for the rich named the Roppongi Club, but he soon discovers secrets much darker than he’d ever imagined. With the help of a exploited goddess named Kagura, Saiga now possesses the power to kill by simply taking a photograph; but can he stay alive long enough to save her from her captors?
Both shows are most definitely adult with their content, and have some very sexual moments. Mnemosyne is much more graphic than Speed Grapher, but SG seems to touch on some slightly more taboo subjects.
These two shows explore a seedy underworld of people who have fallen into power and will use it to get what they want at the expense of others. This means there is a lot of talking to create the atmosphere and develop the plotline further, but I always think of this as a bonus.
Very slick animation, brilliant soundtracks and a seamless blend of engrossing storyline with action make these two series the perfect couple.

both animes have a very well defined mystery aspect, and in both animes we see detectives investigating cases.The differences between Spiral and Mnemosyne are many but in what i mentioned above they are quite alike.If you like one of this two you might like the other one as well.

Ok I know that, in some part, both titles could be totally dispaired. But, the blood factor are something that makes them so common.
ALso, in Mnemosyne there are some yuri and in Togainu there is Yaoi, makes them so a dark Yaoi/yuri to watch.Pretty recommend both animes :D

Unfortunately for the group, the statements come true, and soon the carnage begins. Will anybody walk away from the ominous island, or are their destinies due to be forever ruled by Beatrice?
Violence, Blood, Violence, Mystery, Blood, Violence... Oh and did I say Blood? If any of these interest you then choose one of these shows and start watching. While Mnemsyne's story rotates around the mystery surrounding the main character and the passing of time, Umineko follows a series of murder mysteries in a "closed island" senario. Both have lots of magic, mystery, violence, and yes, blood.

For STN, there is much work ahead, and for Robin, her troubles are just beginning...
Witch Hunter Robin and Mnemosyne share very similar traits. Overall setting is slightly the same Mnemosyne features a small detective agency and Witch Hunter Robin takes place in a secret government agency, but they in essence are also detectives. Main characters are very alike both physically (super power) and mentally in that they strive to find the truth during investigation. Lastly both series have a more "super natural" basis in Witch Hunter Robin it is of course witches in Mnemosyne its immortals.
As far as differences are concerned Mnemosyne has much more gore and violence so if your one that doesn't enjoy the occasional bloody scene you should look else where.
