Buichi Terasawa’s original Space Adventure Cobra TV series finally makes its way to America!

In Johnson’s dream adventure, he’s the notorious space pirate Cobra! Accompanied by his android partner Lady Armaroid, Cobra fights the lowlife scum of the Pirate Guild by day and saves sultry sirens of space by night. After the journey is over, events unfold that bring reality into focus. His experience wasn’t a dream at all – it was a reawakening of his buried past!
With the most feared weapon in the universe, the Psycho Gun, Cobra sets out into the galaxy in pursuit of love, fortune and fame!
Contains episodes 1-15 of the original Space Adventure Cobra TV series.
The Space Adventure Cobra TV series is based on the best-selling manga by Buichi Terasawa (Goku: Midnight Eye), which was originally serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump anthology and later collected into 18 volumes. In addition to the 1980s television adaptation, it inspired a feature film, two direct-to-video anime series (2008-2009), a 2010 anime TV series, and three manga sequel series (also written by Terasawa). This 31-episode television adaptation of Cobra originally aired on Japanese television, from October 1982 through May 1983.
Space Adventure Cobra features animation by TMS ENTERTAINMENT, and direction by Osamu Dezaki (The Rose of Versailles, Golgo 13: The Professional).
