Dirty Pair Flash

Show Summary

Dirty Pair Flash is a remake of the Dirty Pair anime series that made popular the girls with guns duo genre. It was released in the 1990's as a direct-to-video series. The Pair consists of two 17-year-old 'Trouble Consultants', which are a cross between a troubleshooter and a secret agent. They work for an organization called World Welfare & Works Association (3WA) which handles problems galaxy-wide. Their code name is 'Lovely Angels' but it's easy to see why they are commonly known as the Dirty Pair, not in a naughty way, but because they tend to leave a wake of destruction wherever they go. Main Characters Yuri is the perky girl with the long purple hair. Yuri tends to rely on her feminine wiles to get out of trouble, rarely plans ahead and is obsessed with her image, cosmetics and dating. Clearly, she is the eye candy of the show and can be a bit of an airhead. Her weapon is a sword of light. Kei is the more serious and trigger-happy part of the duo. She has short blonde hair, and her aggressive style sets her at odds with Yuri nearly all the time. For some reason the 3WA computer has decided Kei has to be paired with Yuri. Her favorite weapon is a blaster pistol. Rating: 15+ (US). Animated violence, profanity, and some nudity. License Status: Licensed by ADV Films.
