Hehehe, I saw two girls kissing in the promo! Cool

Then later I saw that same girl sticking a needle onto that other girl's breast nipple. *shrugs* Mad

Nonetheless, this looks pretty edgy enough for me to take glance.

I hated the promo, way too violent, I'm not watching this now. (The animation is gorgeous though and I like the art design.

Rin Asougi (CV: Mamiko Noto)


Mimi (CV: Rie Kugimiya)


Laura (CV: Sayaka Oohara)


Apos (CV: Akira Ishida)


Sayara Yamanobe (CV: Rie Tanaka)

Rin appears to be in her mid twenties, but her actual age is unknown. Mimi appears to be in her late teens, but her actual age is also unknown. Laura looks her age. Apos is a boy. Sayara is evil.

In the sexy, hardboiled science fiction action anime, Mnemosyne -Mynemosyne no Musume-tachi-, Rie Tanaka voices Sayara Yamanobe, head of Aoyama Pharmaceuticals Sayama Laboratory. The haughty, quite sadistic Sayara conducts illegal experiments at the laboratory.

Rie Tanaka is very happy to play Sayara Yamanobe, who she describes as a considerably sadistic character and a "kowai [scary] oneesan."

Perhaps best known for playing cute, sweet, gentle heroines like Chii (Chi) in Chobits, Lacus Clyne in Gundam Seed, Hikari Kujou / Shiny Luminous in Futari wa Pretty Cure Max Heart and Maria in Hayate no Gotoku! [Hayate the Combat Butler], Sayara Yamanobe appears to be another one in Rie Tanaka's evergrowing line of antagonistic, evil, and villainous roles - Morganna Mode Gone in .hack//SIGN, Suigintou in Rozen Maiden, Tomoe Marguerite in My-Otome, Nomura/Takagi in Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai, Kirie Fujou in Kara no Kyoukai, Helga Neumann in Phantasy Star Portable (PSP multiplayer RPG), Sakuya Haibara in Zero ~Gesshoku no Kamen~ (Zero ~Mask of the Lunar Eclipse~) / Fatal Frame IV (Nintendo Wii horror adventure game), etc. - cementing her position as a first choice among voice actresses to portray crazy, psychopathic, sadistic evil villains.

GRAPHICALLY SEXUALLY OR VIOLENTLY EXPLICIT? Japanese love Greek myths as evident that this series is named from the Titaness memory goddess that was mother by Zeus of the 9 Muses.

In this age of Moe, Romance, Dating Sims, etc. Its nice to see that some anime still caters to those of us who like Sci-Fi and Graphic Sex and Violence.

Its been a while since I've seen something like this. I'm looking forward to it.

I remember when I first read about this on AODs forums I went from sold in the first post to eh by the end of the first page (wasn't happy to hear it was a CG production). But after seeing the PV I'm once again sold since it looks very good.
