If you're in a big trouble, call the World Welfare Work Association or WWWA. They will send out a team of highly trained capable agents called Trouble Consultants who can solve your problems. But if the team they send you is the Dirty Pair, there will be a lot of collateral damage aside from solving your problems.

It’s easy to be adamant about cherished childhood memories; particularly those revolving around beloved TV shows that shaped our imagination and oftentimes influenced our future career pursuits. I still remember feeling timelessly connected to the eighties He-Man cartoon which sparked my passion for illustration and animation. I also remember re-watching the first few episodes not too long ago, dumbfounded by just how poorly the show aged. It’s as if a piece of me was shredded to pieces…leaving read more

I'm a new fan, but I love Dirty Pair. Not only is it sexy, but it is also actiony and has a good amount of comedy. Two hot women in bikinis kicking ass, taking names and destroying things in the process, how could I not like this anime? There's something appealing when it comes to women who can kick your ass, and Kei and Yuri, the Lovely Angels, better known as Dirty Pair have a lot of appeal.

Dirty Pair is adapted from Haruka Takachiho's light novels of the same name. Besides the 1980s anime, the series also has movies, OVAs, a comic book series, a read more

I watched the Dirty Pair movie like, 10 years ago and that gave me a pretty good idea of what the TV series would be like.

The main characters, Kei and Yuri, are the Lovely Angels who work for the World Welfare Work Association or WWWA as "trouble consultants", i.e. hired mercenaries who fix issues for profit. As per the movie, they are also known by their popular name, the "Dirty Pair" because every mission they solve results in huge amounts of collateral damage.

The TV series was a little dissapointing in several respects. For one, it didn't bring out the total awesomeness of the Dirty read more

A funny show about women saving the day. 
Dirty Pair is the 80's series and concept inspiration for most of the following space heroines after them and Kiddy Grade is one that shares a lot of similarities being the adventures of a couple of agents working for an organization that solves cases or problems, ones working for the WWWA and the others for the GOTT. Both female couples have a strong bond and are very skilled complementing each other with contrasting personalities. And to spice it, both series have fan servicing elements having attractive girls in revealing outfits. 
Kei and Yuri call themselves the "Lovely Angels", but everybody else calls them the "Dirty Pair". Why? Because there's lots of collateral damage coming with each dispatch. Both shows feature two main characters constantly teasing each other about their looks and men, a desperate boss and awkward villains. If you like PSG not for it's animation or the uncouth jokes, the Dirty Pair is what you're really looking for. 
Despite their different genres of science fiction and ghost stories, these anime contain women main characters who crave money, danger and excitement while displaying humorous moments in their episodic tales. 
Both anime has ladies that are ORDERED to do their job, wether its just across the stars or on a dusty planet, trigun is more a man has the main role, but the chicks in there are a big part as well! 
These animes have a similar sci-fi-action premise although Cobra is more mature in tone & features aliens. Dirty Pair is obviously the more feminine of the two, but still delivers on action, adventure, comedy & a wild side. Both Cobra & Dirty Pair are mostly episodic which work watching both series side to side. Cobra has the better action but in terms of partners (Cobra & Lady) Dirty Pair definitely has that chemistry done better. It should also be noted that both franchises have multiple ovas, movies & animes to further explore in the sci-fi universe of adventurous action.
