Both series now available in the United States and Canada
Crunchyroll has a full week of anime catalog announcements planned, starting with today's double-whammy addition of Space Adventure Cobra and Cat's Eye. Both are available to Crunchyroll members in the United States and Canada.
First up is Space Adventure Cobra, the 1982 TV anime adaptation based on the manga by Buichi Terasawa. The full series is up now for premium members, with free members able to catch the second half of the series a week from today.
Seeking reprieve from a painfully ordinary 9-to-5 existence, mild-mannered office worker Johnson visits the TM Corporation, a company that sells virtual dreams. 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!
Cat's Eye—based on the manga by City Hunter's Tsukasa Hojo—is also available in its entirety to premium members, with free members currently able to access season 1.
Cat's Eye is the most notorious group of art thieves in Japan. No one knows their identities, but for most of Tokyo, the mystery only heightens their allure. To bumbling detective Utsumi Toshio, Cat's Eye is a colossal pain in the neck. They outwit him and the rest of the police at every turn, making them look ridiculous. He would never dream of being in love with someone in Cat's Eye. Except he already is.
