posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Digital Media Rights announced on Friday that it would begin streaming the Dirty Pair 1985 television anime on its RetroCrush streaming service. All 26 episodes of the anime are already available with English subtitles. Right Stuf and Nozomi Entertainment are providing the title.
Crunchyroll also announced on Friday that it is streaming Dirty Pair in the U.S. and Canada.
RetroCrush teased a "surprise release" on the service earlier this week.
The anime adapts Haruka Takachiho's science fiction comedy novel series of the same name, with illustrations by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko. The series began in 1979, and the eighth novel in the series, Dirty Pair no Daichōyaku, shipped in 2018 as the first novel in 11 years.
Aside from the television anime, the novels have also inspired an anime film, as well as several video projects, manga, and American comics. The title duo made their first anime appearance in 1983's Crusher Joe: The Movie.
