Kei and Yuri are operatives dispatched by the for-profit World Welfare Works Association to resolve crises throughout the universe. Their preferred codename may be ''Lovely Angels,'' but their on-the-job effectiveness, which is only rivaled by the path of destruction left in their wake, has earned them a very public, very unwanted nickname - the ''Dirty Pair.'' Includes episodes 1-13.
Scene access, Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo audio for Japanese dialogue, English subtitles and English on-screen translations. Plus: Clean opening, U.S. Part 2 trailer and Nozomi Entertainment trailers.

I saw a review for this on YouTube and the reviewer said that to him it was just 80s nostalgia and that he couldn't see what the fuss was about. But I purchased this set and I really enjoyed them they are adventure and comedy with interesting stories with just the right amount of Depth to them, I mean there wasn't too much story and there was enough story in each episode to keep me interested right through to the end. Almost each episode was a standalone episode apart from one two part episode on the volume two set. No returning antagonists and each episode felt different and for me each episode was always entertaining. There is almost no Fan Service in this so if you are put off by Fan Service then you don't need to worry and if you are just after Fan Service then I wouldn't recommend it. The animation is still very watchable but it might take a little getting use to after watching some of the latest animation but I think it still holds up pretty well.
This is part one of a 2 part release for the 26 T.V. episodes for the duo and also the very first release in the U.S. for the T.V. episodes and it is definitely a good one. I have the ADV release for the OVA's, Movies, and Flash and the packaging is exactly like the Thinpak boxes for the OVA and Movies, 3 cases get in nice and sturdy chip board boxes with nice art featuring our leading ladies. As for sound and video, It's an 80's classic so you get a stereo mix for sound and it does sound really nice, it looks equally nice wearing it's age well, just don't expect it to look like the latest and greatest out. That all said this looks and sounds great especially for a show produced in 1985.
*A note before I continue, this show is presented in Japanese with Subtitles ONLY, so be prepared there isn't an English Dub!!
As for the story, it's a sci-fi action saga set in a future universe following the exploits of WWWA trouble consultants Kei and Yuri as they solve intergalactic crimes and mysteries, all while leaving a path of destruction wherever they go, hence the nickname Dirty Pair.
If you are a lover of the classics, or a first time fan, or a long time Dirty Pair fan, don't miss this one!
Because of the age of the series, the animation is basic, but it is good enough to illustrate the simple stories.
If you're looking for an example of early Anime or you would like something that you can watch with your mind disengaged, I think that Dirty Pair would interest you. If you would prefer something more serious having a "girls with guns" theme, you would like Madlox, Noir or El Cazador better. Those three DVD's are also available from Amazon.
The packaging is good and attractive if a tad thin. The transfer is wonderful and the subtitling easy to read with reasonable translations. After almost 30 years of waiting to see these properly done, its nice to understand the girls finally! Well done!
