Re: [Yuricon] ODP vs. DPF Was: OK - let's see how many *really* competent, cool characters...
- <starting useless Dirty Pair info dump, now.>
The Dirty Pair Flash OVAs differ from the Original Dirty Pair continuity in
that prior to Dirty Pair Flash the original novels, all the series (TV, ova,
movies), and even Adam Warren's comics, Kei and Yuri meet each other in
college (Meizuru University for Lucien upgrades), become good friends, and
enter the WWWA together. In Dirty Pair Flash, Kei and Yuri don't know each
other prior to joining the WWWA, and don't start off liking each other. The
Flash series also take place right after they've passed 3WA training, and
before they've earned their Dirty Pair reputation. Whereas in the "normal"
DP continuity the books, series and comics, start them off mid-career as it
were, scourge of the universe and all.
Molly and Iris were created for the the Dirty Pair Flash series, as having
been the prior Lovely Angels, and do not exist in the "normal" DP
continuity. Having not read the novels, I don't know for certain if in the
"normal" DP continuity if there were any references to anyone using the
"Lovely Angel" codename prior to Kei and Yuri, but there is none that I can
recall in any of the series or movies. As a nod to the original DP, in
Molly's flashback scenes, Molly and Iris are dressed and look like TV show
Kei and Yuri, respectively.
There are also plenty of differences in all the incarnations of the Dirty
Pair that start from Takachiho's novel, but since they use the same source
material as a starting point (Takachiho's novels) they are considered
<end info dump>
I'll be glad to list those differences if anyone's interested, but to relate
this back to the original topic, I don't think that causing massive
collateral damage on a systemic scale can really be considered to be
competent for this survey. Sure, every case they've worked has been closed,
and they are always exonerated by the good ol' Central Computer, but they
are the Dirty Pair for a reason.
Dirty Pa--, uh, I mean, Lovely Angel fanatic. ;)
