Right Stuf, an independent video distributor, and Nozomi Entertainment, an anime producer firm, launched a Kickstarter campaign on October 1 with a goal of USD 275,000, to release a full anime English Dub of the 1985 anime, Dirty Pair, on disc.

The Kickstarter campaign broke past that goal and reached USD 372,731 by press time. Due to this insane response, all the pledgers will be getting the full franchise on Blue-Ray discs. Along with a ton of limited Dirty Pair merchandise.
The campaign will go on till October 31st, after which the dub production of the retro anime will begin and the fans will start receiving their exclusive goods in the coming months.
