About Rin ~ Daughters of Mnemosyne
Rin Asogi doesn’t stand out in a crowd, but that’s okay by her. Going unnoticed is an occupational necessity for any private eye, and she’s the best in the business. It doesn’t matter if she’s rescuing lost kitties or infiltrating high-security laboratories, Rin is the dame you want handling your sensitive materials. Sure, she crosses paths with some shady characters in her line of work, but not having to worry about the little things – like bullet holes or brutal beatings – makes the job almost bearable. Life, on the other hand, is a different story. And it won’t get any easier with sadistic Apos the immortal sending wave after wave of assassins to claim a much sought after prize – the secret which lurks within the hunted Rin.
FUNimation Entertainment will release the complete series on DVD later this year.
