The WWWA, or 3WA as it is affectionately known, is dedicated to one thing: The prosperity and well being of all the peoples of the Galactic League. The Dirty Pair are Kei and Yuri, the 3WA's top crime division female operatives with a 100% clean-up rate. The problem lies in the extreme collateral damage they cause to people and property in the single minded pursuit of their duty; including, if absolutely necessary, the wholesale destruction of cities, continents and even planets! No-one is safe, whether it be criminals, rogue robots, crazed computers and more likely, innocent bystanders!
The year is 2032. Tokyo has been destroyed by a great earthquake and a new city, MegaTokyo, has risen from the ashes. Humans now live side-by-side with androids known as Boomers who perform many of the menial and laborious tasks that humans despise, but these artificial servants come with a price: they have a tendency to go haywire and attack those they were built to serve. The A.D. Police force was created to try and stop this menace, but its weapons can do little more than annoy the Boomers. Hope lies with the Knight Sabers, four young women with high-tech, armored suits and enough firepower to stop an army - but will it be enough to stop MegaTokyo's greatest threat?
Whether or not it's full body armor or spandex, Dirty Pair and Bubblegum Crisis focus on crime-fighting women that do things their own way. Both have a classic animation style and are enjoyable still to this day.
Both series feature a lot of action, explosions, kickass female leads and they both take place in a futuristic setting, although the particulars of each setting differs. And lest I forget: they're both overloaded with music (often incredibly catchy), color schemes, animation and general feel that just reeks of the 80's. I leave it up to you to decide whether this is a good thing or not.
If you liked one of them any, some or all because of this I strongly advies you to check out the other.
Mireille Bouqet has become a reputable assassin working in France. However, all changes after she meets Kirika, a mysterious young girl who knows nothing about her past but possesses killing skills that dwarf hers. Further intrigue unfolds as both characters explore their shadowy past and come to a head with a clandestine organization that seeks to control destiny itself.
Noir and Dirty Pair have two teams of women: one is legal, the other not so much, but both cause destruction and mayhem throughout their respective stories and deal out justice by any means necessary.
The 2 main characters share a same personalty with 1 doing everything by the book and the other is dishing justice by all means. But by the end of the day they still get the job done. So if you enjoyed Dirty pair(or Noir) you will enjoy Noir (or Dirty pair).
In the future, Tokyo has fallen victim to syndicates, trigger-happy people who run rampant and other groups who don't like to follow the rules. In response, an organization called RAPT has been created, whose goal is to maintain their definition of "peace". In the underground, however, science involving humans and powerful mechanics is progressing at a steady phase, but for what purpose? Meet our four angels who know how to kick butt and raise hell whenever it's needed. Their motto? Shoot first, talk later. Their mission? To make the seemingly impossible possible, of course...
I can't help but be reminded of Dirty Pair while watching Burst Angel. Female protagonists that are assigned various jobs, with said jobs ending up being more complex than initially expected, followed by mayhem and destruction? That describes both of these series to a T. If you enjoyed one of them, I am sure you will enjoy the other.
Follow interstellar bounty hunters Spike Spiegel and Jet Black as they scour the galaxy for criminals with prices on their heads. Hoping to escape their past, they live on the spaceship Bebop, but it's a dangerous business and old enemies don't forget easily. Allies come from unlikely sources, however, as they find comrades in the beautiful swindler Faye Valentine, the genius child hacker Ed and the genetically engineered 'data dog' Ein. Will they be able to help each other though their respective struggles, or is their fate really inevitable?
Eisodic format, bounty hutners/"problem solvers" with a penchant for reckless behaviour and whose missions often end in destruction of some sort, lots of action of the gunslinger and martial arts variety and a sci-fi setting that features interplanetary travels. If these are things that interested you in either of these series I suggest that you check out the other.
Many years in the future, crime is out of hand. In order keep the city safe, the Tank Police were created. The Tank Police are an elite unit that uses massive tanks to bring criminals to justice, yet many feel they do more damage than they are worth. Leona is a rookie, and within her first few days on the force she is already knee-deep in trouble.
Girls, guns and plenty of destruction. That pretty much sums up both Dirty Pair and Dominion Tank Police (though the later has plenty of male characters too).
Really, if you enjoyed one of these and are in the mood for more mayhem, try the other on for size.
