Right Stuf and Nozomi Entertainment’s Kickstarter page for an English-dubbed Blu-ray Disc release for the 1985 Dirty Pair television anime has announced that Pamela Lauer will return as the voice of Kei in the new dub. Lauer voiced Kei in the English dub of the original Dirty Pair original video anime (OVA). She is currently retired. Jessica Calvello will also return as Yuri for the new dub.
Right Stuf and Nozomi Entertainment launched the Kickstarter campaign earlier in October 2021. The Kickstarter reached its goal to raise US$275,000, and as of this writing, has raised $372,416. The campaign will run until October 31, 2021.
The Kickstarter will fund an English-dubbed HD release for the main television anime, but also offers the Blu-ray Disc release of the entire franchise as a reward for specific pledge tiers. The project’s Kickstarter page states that Right Stuf and Nozomi Entertainment will utilize 75% of the funds collected for dubbing, production expenses, and acquiring rights clearances. The project will utilize 15% of the funds for the production of the materials, media, and packaging; and utilize 10% of funds for overhead, working capital, fees to run the project on the platform, royalties, and staff costs.
