“Cute, kick-arse girls going around the universe and
blowing stuff up in the name of justice” – Mike Dent, Otaku USA
The Dirty Pair television series, which consists of 24 episodes and two TV specials, is the first anime adaptation starring the iconic heroines of the long-running Dirty Pair novels and short stories. It features production by Sunrise (Gundam, City Hunter, Sgt. Frog, Cowboy Bebop) and Studio Nue (Crusher Joe, Macross).
The Dirty Pair’s literary adventures – written by Haruka Takachiho (creator of Crusher Joe) and illustrated by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko (character design for Mobile Suit Gundam, Gundam Unicorn) – have won two Seiun Awards for science fiction and inspired an array of media, including anime, radio series and English-language comics. The first two novels were published for English-speaking audiences by Dark Horse Comics.
All of the Dirty Pair’s animated adventures – including the original television and OVA series, the original theatrical features (Project Eden, Affair of Nolandia and Flight 005 Conspiracy), and Dirty Pair Flash (the 1990s reimagining of the series) – are available on DVD from Nozomi Entertainment.
