I enjoyed it. Nice story with dark elements. Awesome voice cast too... pretty much all star. Brilliant performance from Mamiko especially.

Zombies, naked chicks and shotgun gloves?

Yea this was exactly what I was expecting from this show and I loved it. Nice balance between sick and twisted stuff and a cool ending. Can't wait for the soundtrack to come out... hearing Galneryus' songs without some solos is just wrong, wish they left them in some how.

This first episode was OK. I love Rin, she is quite a strong main character, but she reminded me of Yomiko from R.O.D. XD
I am not sold on it yet, as this episode was more or less an introduction, but it sucks that the next episode is only coming next month... >_>

I usually don't have this kind of thirst but it was interesting. I expected a bit more after seeing the trailer. Yay for Kugimiya Rie and Noto Mamiko though.

I was hesitating watching this series, but after seeing episode 1, I think it was pretty awesome. I look forward seeing the rest of the episode.

Well, at least it isn't like Hellsing Ultimate which keep you waiting a year for each episode.

Somethings were good, others irked me, for the introductory episode it sure managed to keep my interest. Considering I currently don't have a real "gory and mature-oriented" Anime in my "to watch" list right now, it helps fill the void.
The "inmortal" thing is really a buzzkill though, although it made you scratch your head for a while until the second fight with Apos. I guess it's the best they could do to increase the amount of gore and torture, but I hope they give her some sort of weakness. Otherwise it will be a lot of gore and no suspense.

I enjoyed this first ep...I was actually shocked by all of the nudity, and there was quite a bit of gore, but neither of these are selling points of the anime, as the plot, story, and characters hold up their own. I'm curious ads to how/why she is immortal, and what exactyly happened to Apos....

Well, the second part of the title for the series is Daughters of Mnemosyne. Mnemosyne being the ancient Greek goddess of memory (seemed like the first episode had quite a bit to do with memories, and the preview hinted in that direction too). Mnemosyne banged Zeus for nine nights and had nine daughters (the Muses) so I'm assuming the immortality and character traits will follow at least partially towards what the Muses are. The inclusion of mythology was one thing that peaked my interest initially. Not really sure exactly how things will play out though since its too early to tell. One thing I did notice though was Rin said something about humans as if she wasn't even one, so who knows *shrug*.

I loved it, but only 6 episodes and only 1 a month? it's labeled as an ova, so is that incorrect or is there a manga or something this came from?

For the first ep it was good. At least, the action was more varied than in the trailer. The OP/ED are awesome - jpop go to hell :P Animation was good but raw source wasn't.

Jesus! How awesome was that? The beginning of the torture scene was hot until I saw that she was poked full of holes. That totally ruined it for me.

There were even zombies! How frickin' cool was that?! This would also make a good hentai something along the lines of Kite of Mezzo Forte.

It's labeled wrong I say, since last I knew OVA's were released directly to DVD and/or other storage media. That said, unlike most normal series, this one is a one-per-month thing, it seems.

It has a woman that's good with arms and martial art , balanced amount of violence and secks (?) scenes but i found the storyline too plain / too obvious / old. Might pick it up again when there are more releases.

That was pretty average, and I don't like the characters at all. The script was fairly good though and the animation is great, so I'll watch the next OAV just to be sure. And what's the stuff with taking shooters of vodka for breakfast honestly ?

Well, I think these days a lot of OVAs (or at least some) are actually broadcast on the pay/satellite channels as well... that was the case with Gunbuster 2 IIRC. With its longer format though, this (content aside, of course) seems closer to Figure 17 (hour-long, one episode per month).

I was expecting some sort of Yuri fest based on comments.

Now I see that some people just can't turn off the yuri goggles.

It was a pretty awesome episode. Nice story by itself, and left me waiting for more.

Rin is badass. Mimi is cute. Saya was batshit insane. Big ass is lol.

I'm so glad I stopped hesitating and just decided to watch the first episode. I had the same feelings of fear and excitement that Higurashi gave me just before I started it. I'm relieved that the violent scene's aren't THAT bad.

Rin is definitely one awesome heroine, and the music and animation was top-notch. This is definitely Top 5 Anime potential.

It has it all ...guns, knives, zombies, piecings, T&A, girls with glasses.... nicely animated too. I need a good strong drink!

However I'm not sure how much real tension can be developed. The first episode could stand alone so will have to wait to see where the story goes.

One thing you all can't complain about... it had zombies. And we all know zombies are awesome for any occasion! I didn't expect the zombies at all until the biohazard sign appeared yet... even then it wasn't that much. I was expecting some big monster or something but alas... it had something better. :)

Well, other than that, I find it to be pretty nice. I needed something like this to raise my awesome blood pressure.
However... the it might just be me and my inactive anime watching but the animation at times seemed weak. Is it my subs? Me?

Lastly, Rin may be immortal but she seems to have a a body and mind (minus immortally) of any other human. The main thing is her mind since that might be her weakness as far as I can tell so far.
