Sentai Filmworks back in 2016 picked up the rights to the 2010 TV series Cobra The Animation but after all this time never got a trailer onto their main channel for it. We’ve seen it in a few other places but it’s great to finally have it in the main location with all the other Sentai releases. The show is still in print and can be found streaming on HIDIVE these days.
The series was directed by Keizou Shimizu who also did the character designs for them along with Akio Sugino based on Buichi Terasawa’s original work. Kazumi Koide handled the series composition while Magic Bus handled the anime production itself.
The property previously saw a streaming run through Crunchyroll when it first came out.
Plot concept: There may be stronger and more ruthless guns for hire in the universe, but when it comes to sneakiness, nobody out-sneaks the space soldier of fortune known as Cobra. Who else would change his face and wipe his own memories to hide from former adversaries, then replace his arm with the ultimate holdout weapon?Whether he’s running from mechanical pterodactyls or trying to rescue a friend in need, Cobra never forgets the most important thing: scoring with pretty girls. Even though foiling the Pirate Guild, surviving avalanches, swimming with human-head sharks and fighting the crystalline killer Crystal Boy are all likely to take a few years off his life, one can’t argue with the fact that these missions tend to involve damsels in distress in various stages of undress! Get ready to blast off, rip-off, and face-off as the action explodes in COBRA THE ANIMATION!
