Kei and Yuri, the intrepid Dirty Pai ... er, I mean, Lovely Angels are assigned to find a missing girl. Kei and Yuri have traced Missinie to the forest of Nolandia, but their investigations have stalled thanks to the less-than-helpful Chief of Security with a hidden agenda.

The plot moves along at a snails pace. Questions are posed but not answered. Due to the nature of the mystery, half the movie is set as illusions experienced by various characters which only bogs down the plot even more. It takes a while for the mystery to be solved.

Animation is ok as it is dated animation. English Voice read more

I felt that the seriousness of the OVA distracted me from the plot a bit. Dirty Pair shouldn't be this serious, although it was quite a bit more lighthearted than the previous OVA. However, the plot was neither rushed, nor dragged along, with convincing plot twists to keep me interested. Additionally, the plot was very hard to read.

The visuals were pleasing, living up to the crisp animation quality of the series. This OVA was a bit more fearless about pushing the limits of the characters' bodies, going so far as to, at least to me, imply that Kei dreamed about getting tentacle raped, a read more

The original Dirty Pair TV series made me a bit confused. It was rather... silly, I can't find another word to describe its overall mood. In some episodes the plot moves were strange, in others they were wierd, there were also some so-called "Big Lipped Alligator Moments" or BLAMs for short.

And so it was in "Nolandia no Nazo". This anime is full of plot holes, strange plot twists, some wierd scenes are also present. Yeah, like this scene in the beginning with Kei and Yuri both nude and merging one into another (which makes me think about some sort of hidden message here, like the read more

This felt to me like a long, lower-budget, weak episode from the Dirty Pair TV series. Production values seem lower across the board. Art is much rougher, though there are a couple nice backgrounds. Musical numbers are okay, but generally forgettable. The main weakness is the writing. Very little is explained as to why anything is happening; with all the surreal sequences mixed in, it just feels like a bad trip. Like a couple of the weaker episodes from the series, it feels like the elements of the story are all there in a rough form, but loosely jumbled together, like the writers didn't get read more
