Yet More Dirty

A couple of weeks ago another package from Right Stuf was in my mailbox. This time a review copy of the Dirty Pair Flash Complete Collection.

Now Flash may be the least popular of the Dirty Pair series. Partly this is due to the character designs being unpopular with many fans, Kei's spiky hair for example. However the stories are still Dirty Pair. This is especially so with the first two discs, there are three discs in this case with 16 episodes in all. Each of the first two discs is a separate story and they have the feel of the earlier Dirty Pair movies and TV series. The weakest is the third disc which is a series of unconnected stories that are filled with various tropes common in the 1990s when the series was made, for newer fans these may be fine but fans who have been around for more than a few years may find the stories trite. However the final episode goes back to classic Dirty Pair mayhem with a vengeance complete with power suits and high end weapons.

If you are a Dirty Pair fan this is probably one you want to watch, and likely add to your collection.

The release date is set for July 10.
