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.

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

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

Sunrise brought about, for arguably the first time, two interactive women characters that were both strong and sexy. What more is needed, except maybe an insane amount of action, humour, and things always running out of control.

Humanity has spread across the universe and where there is a crisis, a corporation called the World Welfare Works Association (3WA), in which our two main girls, Kei (red) and Yuri (blue) work for get called upon to solve the issue at hand. The 3WA then send “trouble consultants” like Kei and Yuri to solve various problems, and in grand fashion, the two called the “lovely angels” cause nothing read more

Dirty Pair (Lovely Angels -- sorry!) is one of those series where each episode is its own standalone story and whilst there are sometimes recurring characters (aside from the main cast), they haven't formed together as part of a larger narrative/story as of episode 17. So if you hate (or love) those as much as I do, factor that in.
Whilst episode seems to explore something new and different, they're never pushing the envelope. Though occasionally, they hit. Just don't think too much about it and let it happen when it does.

Basically, Lovely Angels is very mediocre. It never really takes itself seriously and for good read more
