The official Twitter account for Kadokawa's Comic Flapper magazine announced on Thursday that Buichi Terasawa will launch a sequel to his Cobra manga titled Cobra: Over the Rainbow on Kadokawa's Comic Walker and Nico Nico Manga websites on November 19 under the Comic Hu label.
Terasawa published the Cobra manga in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from 1978 to 1984. The manga followed the titular Cobra, a man who can turn his left arm into a gun, and who is on the run from authorities and nefarious forces due to his mysterious past.
The manga was adapted into an animated television series and film in 1982. NTT Solmare put the manga on Apple's iTunes App Store in English in 2010. Discotek Media most recently released the film on UHD Blu-ray Disc on October 29.
A video anime project, Cobra The Animation: The Psychogun, launched in Japan in 2008. A second two-volume project, Cobra The Animation: Time Drive, followed in 2009, and a new Cobra The Animation television series aired in 2010.
