It’s Playboy meets MAD Magazine...R rated, in space. You’ll love it.

The animation of the TV series is very good and I do like Cobra but it’s rather thin. Comparing it to Macross is like...I don’t know. Cobra is basically Voltron with t**s. You get the same thing you want over and over and over again. You simply cannot tell the female sidekicks apart, they always die, everyone does, Cobra always lives. It’s very style over substance.

I’m more familiar with the manga, honestly...the art in that is also extremely good.

I always thought of Space Cobra like Lupin in space but with a we can remember it for you wholesale angle.

The nice part is that I feel its broken up into 2 parts with one being the 3 sisters, Jane etc. and then it goes into the rest which I could live without.

It’s very like Lupin in space, except nobody but Cobra lives in the end, no real partners. Maybe the robot lady? But she barely has any lines. Both were very MAD inspired. That comes through more in the manga than the anime.

I like this type of story a lot. It’s a similar setting to Caravan Kid or other things where space travel is trivial and life is just constant anarchy and chaos and anything you could possibly imagine could happen at any time. Cobra is a somewhat bleak version. Beebop is closer to what I prefer.

Lupin in space is a fairly solid analogy from what I've seen so far.

Yeah it's fun but Cobra is like a Seijun Suzuki movie whereas Macross is closer to Kurosawa.

I always feel Macross is more of a soap opera almost in the realm of GE999 but with older characters.

Anyway watched 4 episodes so far of DT Eightron.
Picked up GTO Great Teacher Onizuka to watch on DVD rather than stream with ads and also picked up Crusher Joe on DVD.
Haven't seen that in years and Gypsy posted about it so I thought I would give it another try and should also have it in the collection anyway.

GE999 definitely has some substance about life there as well.

GTO is funny, I haven't seen it in many years. I have the old Tokyopop sets. Discotek set is probably better but it would be time/effort to swap, so meh.

Crusher Joe is incredible on BD. Not sure when exactly the DVD release was but it's probably pretty good given the quality of the BD.

Crusher Joe the Movie looks SO GOOD on any format I can’t even imagine a good Bluray of it. Peak anime, at least from the animation perspective.

I had the Japanese LD years ago and sold it, don't remember caring too much about it then, but I took the risk to try it again :lol:

GTO is funny, I got to the 14th epi on streaming but found a cheap bootleg DVD on the bay, so I decided for 11 bucks with free shipping I can
watch and enjoy, just let it run on the player LOL.
It does seem to be a rip off what is online with better PQ, same English dub and subs so I'm happy.

For some reason I have a discotek boycot in my mind so I picked up the early DVD with both OVAs.
But I do own some Discos and will buy again in the future but if I can I will skip.
