Immortality is something many people would wish for. But would it be such a coveted ability if people knew they would be subject to countless attacks because of it? Such is the case for Rin Asougi, an immortal private investigator, because there is no shortage of people who want her dead. Over the centuries, she has met many grisly ends, but each time, she returns to life as if nothing had happened.

In 1990, while looking for a lost cat, Rin runs into Kouki Maeno, a man who feels that his memories are wrong. Agreeing to help him, Rin discovers that Kouki is not what he seems, all the while drawing closer to her true enemy. This adversary knows Rin and her kind all too well, and if she dies by his hand, she may stay dead permanently.

Rin: Daughters of Mnemosyne intertwines detective mystery with supernatural elements. Notably, it shares similarities with complex narratives like "Ghost in the Shell" but includes explicit themes that may unsettle some viewers.

Despite its shorter length compared to other anime series, "Rin" lacks extensive introductions and outros, a feature that some viewers may find disappointing. However, this absence enhances its commendable aspects. Contrary to initial impressions, the series isn't solely fixated on gore and sex; rather, it delves into deeper and more intricate themes, albeit potentially unsettling for some.

The protagonist, Rin Asogi, anchors the narrative as an immortal detective, engaging in dynamic interactions with characters such as ...

Mixed Feelings
Watching this series for the first time and I can say I have seen enough edge to last me a looooong while. It's decent enough but man the sex scenes, people getting tied up and all the kinky shit going on, it starts to get grating after a point.

I get that it's an OVA and they tend to be much edgier than series due to not being on TV but this really pushed it. Not bad, and I normally tend to stay quiet on stuff I find decently enjoyable but this show really makes say this regarding "fan service" in anything if you are ...

Main point: Bad, dumb plot, GREAT op and ed

I watched this a while back, I was using a word doc to make my anime list because I didn't really want to make an account here, I wrote, "stupid, dumb plot, no character development, completely flat characters, the only character I liked from the show died in like 2 episodes but he was a flat character as well" also I saw a guy on youtube who was talking about it and he was praising it but included dubbed clips which made it seem even worse. The only redeeming factor of the show is that the OP ...
