When Utopia More discovers an ancient record that holds the key to unlocking the secrets of the universe, she becomes the target of the ruthless Gypsy Doc of the Pirate Guild. Utopia finds herself saved by the easy-going yet legendary space pirate, Cobra, whose custom made Psychogun makes him a force to be reckoned with. Together, the two of them attempt to stop Gypsy Doc (along with Cobra's revived arch-nemesis, Crystal Boy) and his efforts to steal the record and use its secrets to rule the universe.

For Cobra Fans - It's Cobra, you'll love it.

For non-fans, Cobra is pure retro-pulp-space opera, or more simply, Lupin III in space. If that sounds appealing, you'll likely love it. If you don't know what that means, you probably won't understand why the women don't wear pants...

The story is quite epic, gorgeous animation, and while the music is as classic as it was in the movie or even the tv series, its still good.

Preliminary (1/4 eps)

Cobra is the captain of a spaceship. He works as a thief-for-hire and is on the “Most Wanted” list. The character of Cobra is difficult to describe. It’s like if you mix Han Solo’s ability to charm women, James Bond’s gadgets and ingenuity, and a dash of Lupin III’s thieving skills. Stir it all together and replace one of his arms with a laser gun and you’ll ...
