The official website has opened for the latest animation project from the studio Xebec (Martian Successor Nadesico, Fafner, Heroic Age): the Mnemosyne - Mnemosyne no Musume-tachi "hard-boiled science fiction action" series. The story revolves around a Tokyo woman named Rin, an assassin named Laura that is hunting her down, and the series of bizarre incidents involving angel-like creatures. Popular visual novel game illustrator Chūō Higashiguchi (Phantom of Inferno) created the original character designs, and Hiroshi Ohnogi (Gundam, Macross, Noein) is writing the scripts. The anime's director Shigeru Ueda is best known for Elemental Gelade and Tales of Symphonia.
