This anime will doubtless divide opinion. Some will find its violence and nudity excessive while others will find them in keeping with the plot. I'm of the latter opinion, and the erotic content (mostly of a lesbian orientation) and the sadistic violence are key elements of the story and therefore never gratuitous. The story draws on Greek myth for its inspiration, though is set in modern Japan over the course of 60 or so years. Rin, the heroine, is an immortal detective who gradually uncovers the secrets and mysteries of her immortality across the 6 episodes. She is a quirky blend of the nerdy and the voluptuous, depending on the circumstances, and a very likeable character. Her sidekick, Mimi, another immortal detective is also likeable and the banter between the ladies is witty and entertaining. Some of the playful humour and the sudden shifts in narrative tone, from cute stuff to violent stuff, remind me of Elfen Lied. Stylistically, Rin Daughters of Mnemosyne is not state of the art CG animation, but its design has an unfussy beauty with impressively bold coloration. This edition is anamorphic widescreen. The extras (interviews with voice cast) are absolutely useless and an interview with the director would have been a lot more helpful. But, of course, the film is the thing, and if you're looking for an engrossing anime that is eccentric and different from the herd, then this is well worth investigating.

This two disc set includes all six episodes of the `Rin ~Daughters of Mnemosyne~' anime. The series follows Rin Asôgi, an immortal private detective, and her partner Mimi over a period of more than fifty years. Opposing Rin is the mysterious Apos who has plans for Rin and the immortals.

`Mnemosyne' is an entertaining series that defiantly deserves its 18 certificate for its violence and sexual content. The plot of the series is interesting as although each episode is relatively self-contained, they do link together to form a very involving story. As the series takes place over such a long period of time we get to see the mortal characters age and have children who also appear later in the story, which is something I did like. The animation and the voice action on the English dub are both good as well.

One of the downsides the series has is that it can be a bit difficult to follow sometimes and it does take a couple of viewings to get the most out of the series. This is only a minor annoyance however and I would say that the series is well worth around four and a half stars.

I have an extensive anime dvd collection but I have to say this is one of my favourites. Theres only 2 disks, and 6 episodes, but thats all thats needed. Follow Rin through the journey of years as she remains immortal, around ever changing time and technological eras. Ultimately quite mysterious, i watched it twice to absorb the true meaning and emotion of this series. A MUST for any serious anime fan, or even if your not, i guarantee it will be liked. Amongst the deep storyline there is hints of violence and survival, often the main central story of other anime series. Buy this and dont hesitate!

I love fanservice - the cover of this DVD promises much with the open blouse and the bust to knock your eyes out...
Its an interesting story though.... you see three stories with Rin - a pleasant lady, nice sense of humour, well disposed towards people - who just happens to be over 1000 years old and indestructable.....unlike Captain Scarlet, Rin seems to get injured, shot and sexually maimed quite a lot, but she does just (literally) pull herself together and carry on....there is an assassin who keeps shooting her and blowing her up who is also indestructible....
the story really starts with the last three episodes where we get metaphysical (as well as shot at, burned, blown up and operated on by sexual sadists). I enjoyed it.

I have to admit that when I was first recommended to watch english subtitled japanese anime as a form of entertainment, I was fairly sceptical.

But after buying and watching this, I have to say I am totally convinced.

The whole idea of immortals and 'angels' was a stroke og genius and I found myself eager to find out what happened to the main character in every episode.

The reading of the subtitles was what I thought my problem would be, but they are on more than long enough - both to read and to watch the scene unfolding.

I would definitely recommend this to those who like the idea of watching anime - but I would warn them that it is a little graphic for first timers and perhaps something a little softer should be watched before moving on to this

Product Review- This arrived within the time span and was in good condition.

Anime Review-This is an anime that only those who like this sort of thing or are art/story fan's will enjoy.By his sort of thing I'm talking about the pain aspect in this anime.We have a woman who can't help but take pleasure from causing others pain and a person who has a woman with swords stuck in her for amusement (kinda reminds e of joffery from Game of thrones but thats another story)

I'm a story fan and this was quite interesting,it mixes norse mythology with the modern era without bringing in thor.
The only reason why I gave it 4 stars is simply because its almost too short.Mind you,it did explain alot with the few episodes it had but I'd have liked at least one more,maybe an extra ep about Rin's past but thats all.
