    UPDATE #6

    Kei Casting Announcement!

    As the saying goes, for our Kickstarter project we are "working hard for those who demand the finest in image and sound!" (Points if you know the reference)

    The Lovely Angels are a "pair" of course, with our team being made up of both Kei and Yuri, 3WA Trouble Consultants Team 234. We have previously announced that Jessica Calvello will be voicing Yuri again for the TV dub... and now, we can finally reveal who will voice that tempermental redhead Kei!

    And....

    ::: see post :::

    Coming out of retirement just for us!!?! We're pleased to announce that Pamela Lauer will reprise her role as Kei in our Dirty Pair TV dub! She previously starred as Kei in the Dirty Pair OVA series, as well as the Features (Project Eden, Affair of Nolandia, and Flight 005 Conspiracy)!

    For 25 years she has been lost in the wilderness, but now she's back!

    Watch for it!

    • I like consistancy with prior dubs. Good to know that they were able to get back Kei's actress from the ADV version as well.

      Regarding the the Music and Effects tracks, I'm wondering if this would be easier to reconstruct than most. The music gets repeated a lot between episodes and if soundtrack CDs exist, sometimes isolated scores can be found on those. It will be interesting to see if the sound effects get retained or recreated.

        • I'm thinking tomorrow some more stretch goals will be announced, since there's only one left at the moment.

          • Wouldn't be great if they could do on camera interviews with Jessica Calvello and Pamela Lauer about what it was like working on Dirty Pair then and now.

              Update #7

              Do you have what it takes to be a pop star?

              Hey guys, just a quick update! First of all, I wanted to thank you again all for the support. We're very excited to start working on Dirty Pair and we've already gotten a lot of great feedback! One thing we'd wanted to discuss a bit more in-depth, but we didn't really have time for in the pitch video, is related to the Bobbit Huey Tier.

              For those of you who aren't familiar with the Dirty Pair TV series, let me take a moment to explain.

              In the Dirty Pair TV series, Bobbit Huey is a minor character that is mentioned briefly in Episode 5 and appears in full in Episode 17. He's a crooning pop-star and his untitled love song is not only number 1 on the charts, but it's captured the heart of the Lovely Angel, Kei.

              During the process of piecing together the Music & Effects tracks for all of the episodes that we located, we ran into a small snag. Bobbit Huey's song was not present anywhere in the mix.

              After we poured over the materials, we contacted SUNRISE to try and see if they could locate the song elsewhere. They could not. Apparently, this music must have been added to the final mix after everything else was already put in place, sometime in the midst of recording the Japanese dialogue.

              This leaves us with no choice but to replace the song. Now thankfully, our talented director Joe has a lot of experience working with recording artists and musicians and we're all very confident that we can replace the song, but we also thought this might be an interesting opportunity for fan involvement.

              We thought, "Why not offer a tier that allows fans the chance to lend their voice to the artist?" Perhaps there are some talented singers and musicians out there among the backers?

              If you back this tier, we will send you the music which you can use to record your vocal audition. Joe, our director, will then choose what ends up in the final mix. But don't worry, even if your audition isn't chosen, it will still appear on the Blu-ray discs in a special video in the extras section! In fact, we expect to have several interesting auditions... even the boss has shown interest. (note, the boss' singing voice is truly bad, as you can see online in many videos.)

              No matter what, we will be sure to record a song that will match the tone and feel of the show... Perhaps even make a full-length music video? Be sure to keep an eye out for more updates on this after production is in full swing. In the meantime, thanks again, and take care!

              We've added some additional new stretch goals today as well. Check it out!

                • Apparently the song issue also affected the French & Italian dubs where part of it was looped for the former and it was completely missing in the latter.

                  Guess we have another case of a show with M&Es missing insert songs like with most of Dragon Ball.

                    • And just like that, all of the new stretch goals have been quickly met, or rather just $200 away from it as of the time of this writing. Once the goal is met, it will be interesting to see what's next. In any case, I'm amazed at the amount of support this has gotten given how old this show is.

                            This one is for Project Eden, Affair on Nolandia & Flight 005 Conspiracy.

                            #12: We will create a 5.1 audio track for all of the Dirty Pair Features! You'll hear the full sound of the bath as Carson D. Carson crashes through! Note, due to material availability, the surround mixes will be for the ADV dub version only.
