Dirty Pair

Show Summary

In the mid-22nd century, humankind has expanded over many different worlds across the galaxies. Kei and Yuri are two young women that represent the 3WA (World Welfare and Works Association) as Trouble Consultants, whose duties are a mix of a bounty hunter, police detective, and secret agent. Originally given the codename of Lovely Angels, the duo are soon known by another title, the Dirty Pair, because they seem to do more collateral damage in their missions than anyone else. This series is known for being one of the early "girls with guns" anime series from the 1980s along with others such as Bubblegum Crisis. The TV series won the Animage Grand Prix award in 1985, and has since spawned several graphic novels, specials, OAV's, remake and a feature movie. Season Breakdown This guide covers two series: 1.
