Right Stuf's Nozomi Entertainment Announces The Dirty Pair Flash DVD Collection

Set containing entire 16-episode series scheduled for July 2012.

GRIMES, Iowa, March 28, 2012 – Anime producer and distributor Right Stuf, Inc. and its Nozomi Entertainment division are pleased to announce the DIRTY PAIR FLASH DVD Collection will be available on July 10, 2012.

Dirty Pair Flash is a 1990s reimagining of the long-running sci-fi franchise and stars younger incarnations of Trouble Consultants Kei and Yuri. This value-priced collection will contain all 16-episodes of the direct-to-video (OVA) series. It will feature remastered video from the Japanese DVD release, as well as English audio, Japanese audio, and English subtitles and on-screen translations.

The alternate-universe Dirty Pair Flash series features production by Sunrise (Gundam, Outlaw Star, The Vision of Escaflowne, Cowboy Bebop) and is the second wave of anime adaptations to star the iconic heroines of the long-running Dirty Pair novels and short stories.

The Dirty Pair's literary adventures – written by Haruka Takachiho (creator of Crusher Joe) and illustrated by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko (character design for Mobile Suit Gundam, Gundam Unicorn) – have won two Seiun Awards for science fiction and inspired an array of media, including anime, radio series and English-language comics. The first two novels, The Great Adventure of the Dirty Pair and The Dirty Pair Strike Again, are published for English-speaking audiences by Dark Horse.

The original Dirty Pair TV series and OVA series are now available as DVD sets, with remastered video, from Right Stuf's Nozomi Entertainment. Dirty Pair: The Original Features DVD Collection is scheduled for release in May 2012. It will include the theatrical film, Project Eden, plus two stand-alone OVAs (Affair of Nolandia and Flight 005 Conspiracy), with remastered video from the Japanese DVD release, 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.

It's the year 2248, and crime is on the rise. The world needs selfless, responsible heroes to set things straight… but instead it gets Kei and Yuri! These two lazy delinquents are the worst of the worst, but for some reason, the Central Computer paired them up as a team and chose them to inherit the honorable codename “Lovely Angels.” That means they'll be sent out to stop evil corporations, maniacal killers and runaway androids – all in the name of peace. But with the way these two fight, they just might blow everything up themselves first! The complete 16-episode series!
