Brutally great anime
13 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm sure lots of people don't like this anime because it simply pushes the limits of content, such as blood, violence, sex, nudity, etc. If you're looking for a new, unique anime, that's really violent, then this anime is for you!

During the first minute of the first episode, I fell in love right away. I'm tired of all the cliché, angry-teacher-dumb-schoolgirl anime shows, or any anime that's all upbeat and cute, and simply drop dead corny. This show was screaming out my name. A unique, epic female lead who knows karate and other awesome fighting moves - just what I needed. I enjoyed the show's brutality, the characters, and the story, and the art. And personally, I never felt such connection to an anime character before. The lead, Rin Asogi, reminds me a lot of myself: bit of a tomboy, whimsical, very independent, and also hates running! The last part was for laughs. There's just a lot of things about Rin that remind me of myself.

Each episode has its own story, but all have a connection, which fills up the puzzle of the big picture, which is really enjoyable. Each episode pushes the content limits, which makes the show take you to the edge of your seat. Unlike more anime that has episodes lasting almost 30 minutes, Mnemosyne has each episode lasting 45 minutes, or an hour if you count commercials, which is more exciting; however, there are only 6 episodes, which is disappointing, but splitting each episode in half makes it up for it, giving it 12 episodes.

Each character has their own personality and story, totally different, each one. The show sometimes has its funny moments, sad moments, intense moments, anything you can think of. Looking at all the little details, this show has everything. Highly recommended!
