Watched it earlier today, pretty nice I think.
Crazy comedy action with likeable characters is never completely wrong  :)
Remastered image quality is very visible...

Super excited about this series.  I love that there's a solid fansubbing group tackling classic anime.

I have (low resolution) encodes of the old Fuzzy Productions VHS fansubs for Dirty Pair, if those would be in any way helpful to your translation.

Haha! Maybe so.

I missed the release of the ep, though...

Great job (as usual) on episode 1 of Dirty Pair.  Looking forward to more down the line.

Live-eviL formally apologizes to you poor suckers who downloaded episode 1 thinking it was a brand new series.

A few things to take note of:
1.  Dirty Pair, despite the name, is NOT a porno.  The "dirty pair" does not refer to breasts, gonads, ass cheeks or face cheeks.
(Well... maybe breasts)

2.  Older art styles can be a shock to the system, take necessary precautions.  Your initial reflex may be to immediately close the video upon sight of an abundance of pastel colors and slightly muffled audio.  This is natural.  Suppress this reflex and open your mind to new avenues of entertainment.  If, after the first five episodes you find yourself unsatisfied, there are still alternative methods to facilitate enjoyment.  "Drinking games" with "alcohol" can prove to be a panacea to any situation.

3.  Even old anime has potential for greatness, relax and take a chance.

Thank you for visiting Live-eviL, and enjoy your stay.  Please leave all religious offerings at the front desk.  [:burtonsnowboard]

Haha! Nice roundabout way of noting things about DP, Yoshu-sama.  :D

4)  Beware of the opening song. It might get stuck in your head and before you know it, you will be dancing like you would at a disco in the 80's.

5)  Don't try to decipher/figure out what Muhgi says. It will only make your brain implode(and leave a nasty mess to clean up).

I'm happy that the series has been picked up by a 2nd group since the first group (who normally just does DVD rips) stalled at episode 10.  So I'm eagerly waiting for things from episode 11 on.  ^_^

Anyway, thanks to those involved with this project.  ^_^

Thank you for an excellent translation.

I was surprised how good the series is.  No wonder that some people have rooted for this release. It is a shame that companies avoid licensing old stuff regardless of how good the series is.

You're welcome. I'm glad you enjoyed it.  :) By the way, I'm the translator of this series and will strive to do the best I can in translating the rest.  ;D

Yeah, sadly, many anime fans these days prefer animation quality, certain trends, and etc instead of actual quality.  :-\ Now, I'm not saying a slick looking series or whatever isn't good, but rather, overall quality should be what counts, IMHO.

I must add my thanks to the growing chorus here. DP is the kind of stuff I love: pure fun, pop entertainments without any of the "seriousness" that makes so much newer stuff so hard to actually enjoy. Long live the 80s!

Awesome new* series.

Gotta love how OP/ED. OP especially is way better than most current OP/ED lately. Amazingly enough the English used in OP is NOT EngRish. I was like Woah.

Got rest of the raws, it's really nice series so far. People who don't speak Japanese as well as I will be thrilled if you guys are doing it.

I am really glad I decided to cram for a year or so, all that knowledge is paying back big time. Both reading/listening.

I'm probally one of the biggest Dirty Pair fans out there-it was the DP who got me into anime 13 years ago-the Streamline release of Affair On Norlandia and I still have that tape-I even have the entire 26 episode DP tv series that you guys are subbing on R2 dvds which cost me a small fortune-I subbed it myself from various sub scripts i found on the internet and for what I couldn't find I enlisted the help of a japanese speaking friend. Compared to a lot of anime out there today the DP is more fun to watch because it doesn't really take itself seriously. I'd have to say that between Kei and Yuri I definetly prefer Kei. On the Flash varient of the DP most people hate them-for me they're just as good-but in a different way. All that I can say is that if a lot of "modern" anime fans don't check out classic series such as the DP or Kimagure Orange Road or Maison Ikkoku they're missing out on a lot of fun!!

Please can you release this in XVID as well?

There is still a large community that can't play H264, it's not XBMC friendly either. It;s not to much hassle to do another encode, please make it happen or some other group may be forced to do it instead.

What really gets my goat is that ADV released all of DP Flash, all the DP movies and the Originial DP ova series and after saying they'd do the tv series and then never did. I remember seeing the hoary old vhs rips that were floating around the internet years ago and thinking those were the most horrible quality things I'd ever seen pq wise. If your computer can't handle h.264 encoded files-maybe it's time for a new one?

Yes. the oldest of my 5 Computers ( Athlon XP 3200+ ) has no Problems with h.264 as long as it's not 1080p.
If your Computer is older than that ( 6-7 years ) you should get yourself a new one.

On topic: Is there an ETA for the next Episode?

EDIT: WOOHOO!! L-E rules! [:perchut2]

Come on guys, all I'm asking for is an extra encode, won't take long at all.

You will it do for Future Boy Conan but not Dirty Pair? That's inconsistant.

Shame more people won't be able to appreciate this release.

I noticed an error in the first episode's subs. At 24:26, you translated Yuri's line as "What will we do if it warps over to the space vessel?" However, from context (and the little Japanese I know), I think it should be something like "What will we do if it warps in an entire space vessel?", referring to the damage a starship would cause it if invaded the computer core.

Great Dirty Pair releases, by the way. I hope you sub more episodes in the near future!

You know what gets my goat? I have the entire Dirty Pair tv series (eps. 1-26) on R2 dvds-I can't seem to find any decent subs for them cause if I did I'd release fansubs for all the episodes-I can't speak but maybe 100 words of japanese and sure as hell can't read kanji.
