Mixed Feelings
Note: I've only seen the English version of this pilot that came as a bonus feature in Region 1 Nozomi Entertainment release of Space Adventure Cobra Part 1.

If a Japanese version to this pilot exists, I'd like to see it as I'm curious if this pilot was meant for U.S. audiences only or for its Japanese market. The reason I say this, is that the plot is very different from the Cobra we know & the American market could've have received an edited version of Space Cobra if it was ever licensed.

The story starts off similar to the 1st episode where Johnson has no recollection ...
