Editorial Reviews

This value-priced Dirty Pair 3 DVD collection contains the PROJECT EDEN theatrical film, plus the direct-to-video (OVA) features AFFAIR OF NOLANDIA and FLIGHT 005 CONSPIRACY. In addition to remastered video from the Japanese DVD release, the set offers two English audio options (the Streamline Pictures dub, directed by Carl Macek, and the ADV Films dub), Japanese audio, and English-language subtitles and on-screen translations. The Dirty Pair television series, OVA series, Project Eden and the two standalone OVAs (Affair of Nolandia and Flight 005 Conspiracy) are the first wave of anime adaptations to star the iconic heroines of the long-running Dirty Pair novels and short stories. All portions of the original Dirty Pair anime franchise feature production by Sunrise (Gundam, Outlaw Star, The Vision of Escaflowne, Cowboy Bebop), while the TV and OVA series also feature production by Studio Nue (Crusher Joe, Macross).

Program synopsis: The Lovely Angels are back in a triple-pack of '80s sci-fi action!

Project Eden: Kei and Yuri are on their way to the distant planet Agerna. There, they'll have to ease tensions between rival governments, capture a self-proclaimed master thief and stop a mad scientist from reviving an ancient alien race!

Affair of Nolandia: A little girl has gone missing, but this particular damsel in distress has incredible psychic powers. If Kei and Yuri want to find her, they'll have to fight their way through a deadly forest of illusions...
Flight 005 Conspiracy: The 3WA's Central Computer gave the Dirty Pair two cases at once! Kei and Yuri must investigate a space liner explosion and, at the same time, find a missing scientist. It all seems harmless enough, but this is actually the Angels' most dangerous mission, yet - and if they're not careful, it'll be their last.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dirty Pair - Remastered with Streamline Dubs August 5, 2012
By Area88
This boxset is a remastered re-release of the Original Dirty Pair boxset but it contains superior video quality since all three features have been remastered from a new Japanese telecline print. Also included is the option between the classic Streamline dub that was previously exclusive only to VHS, the ADV dub or the original Japanese track.

Dirty Pair Nolandia is the first in chronological order, it was released in 1985 and was produced before the tv series and was considered the serious side to Dirty Pair. Since it's serious science fiction and fantasy, it's the most unique title in the franchise, it's also one of the best and has an almost mysterious, twilight zone feel to it. The character designs are also more realisitc and there's very little comedy in this episode. Alot of people rate this 55 minute OVA very highly and it really is a must see. Rating - A+

Dirty Pair Project Eden, also known as Dirty Pair The Movie, is also very science ficiton heavy from 1987. It's almost like Bubblegum Crisis meets Dirty Pair, there's much more comedy 80 minute movie as Kei and Yuri try to take on an evil, mad scientist called Dr Watts. The animation is outstanding and the colours are so vibrant, they jump of the screen, the music is really catchy too. Rating - A

Dirty Pair Flight Consipiracy, which was the last original Dirty Pair animated story ever, came out in 1990 and had mixed reactions. It once again went for a more serious story and feel, the mystery is really interesting but the lack of comedy will leave some fans bored. Running at 60 minutes, it's a good but also sad end to the DP franchise, it's not my favorite by any means. Rating - B+

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection for classic Dirty Pair fan. January 18, 2013
Verified Purchase
If you already own these movies, you may consider buying them again. I had purchased the OVA remasters a while ago and while I had already owned the ADV(Section23) thin pack, while that seems to make no sense in buying the same thing again, the video quality is by far much much better then when that set was originally released. The reason I mention this is because this set gets the same amazing treatment.

Project EDEN is considered by many the best feature out of the 3 in this set. While I already own Project EDEN already. This comes with both the ADV Films dub and the Streamline Pictures dub, as well as the original Japanese language. While I am not a huge fan of the other to features for this price and the much better quality, this release is a steal at this great price.
If you're a fan of the OVA and/or TV series this is a must buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars This set is great! February 28, 2013
Verified Purchase
Being a new fan to the dirty pair franchise, this collection is just perfect to start off with. The best features in this set are the audio options. Not only does this set include the original Japanese Dubs with English subtitles, it includes the 1994 Streamline Pictures English Dub and the 2003 ADV Films English Dub. The picture quality is another great thing about this DVD set; the picture is really sharp and crisp with little gain and film artifacts. I'd recommend it to anyone who is a fan of dirty pair or is starting off with the series.
