About Dirty Pair Features DVD
The Lovely Angels are back in this Dirty Pair triple pack of '80s sci-fi action!
Kei and Yuri are on their way to the distant planet Agerna. There, they'll have to ease tensions between rival governments, capture a self-proclaimed master thief, and stop a mad scientist from reviving an ancient alien race!
Affair of Nolandia
A little girl has gone missing, but this particular damsel in distress has incredible psychic powers. If Kei and Yuri want to find her, they'll have to fight their way through a deadly forest of illusions.
Flight 005 Conspiracy
The 3WA's Central Computer gave the Dirty Pair two cases at once! Kei and Yuri must investigate a space liner explosion and, at the same time, find a missing scientist. It all seems harmless enough, but this is actually the Angels' most dangerous mission, yet - and if they're not careful, it'll also be their last.

Ratings & Reviews
worth it for Project EDEN alone
This is the best value and quality package you'll likely find for these features. Project EDEN is the DP's take on a James Bond-like movie and is my favorite anime of all time. It's a lot of fun and has an awesome j-pop soundtrack. The other features are 'pretty good,' but pale in comparison to Project EDEN. I can't recommend this one highly enough!
Hit and Miss
by Joseph -
I liked most of the content in this set. The OVAs (Affair of Nolandia and Flight 005 Conspiracy) were good, but not great. Really, you are getting this set for the movie: Project Eden. It is bigger and better in every way. The main knock against the movie is that the music can take over to the detriment of the film. The final fight scene is just a pop song over the animation, no dialogue or sound effects. It was like I was watching an early AMV.
The biggest issue with this set (something I did not see others mention) is that Affair of Nolandia and Flight 005 Conspiracy have video issues. Every 10-15 seconds a black line will pop up at the bottom of the screen under the subtitles. I think this is a problem with the original tapes and it does get distracting. Project Eden does not have this issue. I knocked off a star due to this video problem.
Some Nice Additions to a Classic Franchise
This collection includes 3 "films" that are each very different in tone and presentation:
"Affair on Nolandia" is closer to a classic sci-fi story, with more mature art, less comedy, and deeper themes.
"Flight 005 Conspiracy" is, as the title suggests, more of a suspense title.
"Project E.D.E.N." is by far the closest in tone to the TV series - a delightful action comedy with obvious Cold War references. It's also the only one that's a full feature film.
All three are at least solid installments in the franchise, but E.D.E.N stands out in particular, both for its more familiar tone and quality in writing and animation. As a must-have for any Dirty Pair fan, it's also a good introduction to the franchise, and can indeed carry the collection itself, though the other two shouldn't be dismissed too easily.
