Hey guys, this torrent PACK contains BOTH (1) Crusher Joe AND (2) Dirty Pair! The reason WHY I packed these TWO torrents is because they basically are a SHARED universe of sorts so I felt that many of YOU would benefit from downloading this pack ^_^!!! Furthermore, I made sure to ORGANIZE this pack (like I do ALL of MY torrent's) so that you know the best order to watch the series in!
"Connections with Dirty Pair:
Crusher Joe takes place in the same general universe as the Dirty Pair light novels with cameos between the two franchises. The two series officially crossover in the light novel Dirty Pair's Rough and Tumble where Kei and Yuri meet Crusher Dan, the father of the series protagonist Joe. Also, aside from the fact that both were written by Haruka Takachiho, Dirty Pair took place around 20 years before Crusher Joe.
In the Crusher Joe: The Movie, A movie of the Dirty Pair is shown at a scene taking place at a drive-in movie theater.
In Dirty Pair: Project Eden, the four main characters are shown briefly on the monitor in the Lovely Angel while Mughi is controlling it."

With the Dirty Pair "TV Series", there unfortunately NEVER was an ENGLISH dub released for the series! However, with the "Dirty Pair 2 (Original Dirty Pair)" OVA series, there WAS one released BUT I, nor my fellow peer [sxales], could NOT get the version available to sync properly to this BluRay release :\!!! In fact, as [sxales] would say on his torrent:
"There is an English dub for this OVA but unfortunately they put the eyecatch on top of the end of scenes rather than between them. I am not sure if the American release trimmed those scenes themselves or if the Japanese BD has extended scenes. Either way there were noticeable gaps (30+ seconds) in the dub (in scene which had characters talking no less) so I chose to leave them out."
Crusher Joe: The Movie - "Amid a supposedly simple escort mission, Joe and his crew experience a failure during their warp travel. They wake up just to find out that the passengers are missing. To make things worse, the United Space Force accuses them of committing space piracy and Crusher HQ suspends their licenses for six months. To clear their names, they head out to the dangerous planet of Lagol to find the person who hired them for that particular mission."
Crusher Joe (OVAs): The Ice Prison and The Ultimate Weapon, ASH - "Two missions for the crushers. In The Ice Prison", Joe and his team are assigned to adjust the orbit of a prison located on an ice asteroid before it disintegrates as it falls onto the planet Kirius. The prison is filled with political prisoners contrary to the autocracy of Kirius consequently rising the suspicion of the crushers. In "The Final Weapon: Ash", the team is secretly hired directly by the president of the nation of Bandor to rescue an officer carrying a bomb capable of annihilating all living organisms of an entire planet."
Dirty Pair: TV Series - "The semi-coherent story of a pair of teenage intergalactic private eyes, Kei and Yuri. Their code name is "Lovely Angels", but they're better known—universe-wide, in fact—as the "Dirty Pair". Their arrival at the scene of a mystery is always a source of hope and dread, since: 1) they always solve the case, 2) wherever they go, something gets horribly wrecked, up to and including entire planets. Lucky for them—but not-so-lucky for the rest of the universe—there are always some sort of extenuating circumstances that support their most often-used phrase, "It's not our fault"."
Dirty Pair: Affair on Nolandia (OVA) - "The Dirty Pair are traveling to the planet of Ookbar in search of 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. But the Dirty Pair have never let a little bureaucracy stand in their way. It's the unicorns and UFOs, not to mention the rampaging killer robot, that are going to be the problem as the Dirty Pair tackle their toughest case yet in Affair of Nolandia."
Dirty Pair: Project Eden (Movie) - "Sent to the planet Agerna to investigate a feud between two opposing factions, Kei and Yuri must find out why strange creatures are attacking Vizorium test plants."
Dirty Pair 2: Original DP (OVA Sequel) - "Set in the future Kei and Yuri are Trouble Consultants for the 3WA; codenamed "Lovely Angels", but they are known throughout the galaxy as the Dirty Pair. They always solve their case, but not without causing collateral damage and mayhem."
Dirty Pair: Flight 005 Conspiracy (OVA) - "Kei and Yuri are called in to solve the mystery of a vanishing starship."
Dirty Pair FLASH - "The beginning of the team "The Lovely Angels" aka "Dirty Pair" and the growing pains of this new team."
