The WWWA, or 3WA as it is affectionately known, is dedicated to one thing: The prosperity and well being of all the peoples of the Galactic League. The Dirty Pair are Kei and Yuri, the 3WA's top crime division female operatives with a 100% clean-up rate. The problem lies in the extreme collateral damage they cause to people and property in the single minded pursuit of their duty; including, if absolutely necessary, the wholesale destruction of cities, continents and even planets! No-one is safe, whether it be criminals, rogue robots, crazed computers and more likely, innocent bystanders!
Noir and Dirty Pair have two teams of women: one is legal, the other not so much, but both cause destruction and mayhem throughout their respective stories and deal out justice by any means necessary.
The 2 main characters share a same personalty with 1 doing everything by the book and the other is dishing justice by all means. But by the end of the day they still get the job done. So if you enjoyed Dirty pair(or Noir) you will enjoy Noir (or Dirty pair).
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.

As scientists explore a new form of energy on the moon, an experiment gone awry brings the lead scientist's life crashing to a halt. In a freak accident, his daughter Kurau is engulfed in the energy and becomes the mysterious entity known as Rynax; a pairing that endows her with new superhuman abilities and a new personality. Years later, Kurau is using her unique powers to make a living as a bounty hunter, but the corporation has not given up on this new form of energy and will stop at nothing to find her. Now, Kurau must protect not only herself, but her Rynax "pair" named Christmas, a soul mate more precious to her than life itself. Can Kurau and Christmas find peace for themselves and the Rynax?
If you enjoy the thrill of the chase, and girls kicking some butt, then Kurau and Noir will definitely appeal to you. Being mostly episodic, both carefully reveal small amounts of a bigger story that is finally revealed in an exciting finale.
If you enjoy a strong female protagonist, then I definitely think you should give both of these shows a try.
Both of these series are filled with mystery, action, and large super powerful organizations. Each series is rather episodic and follows some extremely strong female leads trying to figure out huge mysteries.
Hana is a nine-year-old girl who lives in constant fear of her abusive family; Michiko is a sexy woman who has just done the unthinkable: broken out of the impenetrable Diamandra Penitentiary. After Hana is whisked away by Michiko, who claims to be her mother, the duo sets forth on a high octane ride towards freedom. In the streets of Brazil and aboard Michiko's motorcycle, Hana and Michiko will look for Hana's long lost father, try to learn to co-exist and get along together, and stay one step ahead of the police and afro-clad Atsuko.
Michiko no Hatchin is a lot like one of the Bee Train girls with guns animes but without the supernatural and occult elements. If you like Michiko, you'd probably like Noir, and vice versa.
Both series are about certain women who have dangerous day jobs which involve escaping with their lives and toting big guns. No matter what the job these women complete it. If you liked one then you will surely like the other.
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?
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.
