Space Adventure Cobra is a popular Shounen Jump manga from the late 70s, early 80s.

Cobra is a notorious Space Pirate with a laser gun as his left arm. But, he was tired of being chased by the agency in space and decided to lead a regular life by changing his face & being wiped of his memory.

Three years later, he is a regular person leading a regular life. He is tired of his lifestyle. For fun, he goes to see a "Trip Movie" that allows him to see the dream of his choice. When he saw his "dream", he saw his memories of when he was the notorious Space Pirate Cobra. However, he didn't know that was his memories. As he is going home, he meets up with someone who had a grudge with him. There is a little scuffle, and learns that he actually has a laser gun on his left hand.

This is a nice sci fi tale of pirates, spaceships, and some cool designs.

My only complaint is that his daring rescue technically fails while still being chased. Which knocks off some of his awesome points for me.

So Space adventure cobra is about a cool man with a special gun that gets into a space adventure. The adventure himself is styled around interesting designs. Beautiful women, which dress half naked. I can only assume its because genetic engineering have gotten rid of obesity and ugliness.

Wish there was more translated. It doesn´t even feel old since the retro aspects almost seem purposeful. The big age of sci fi in america was in the 50s so this was about 20 years later. So some of that might be intentional.

This manga is pretty awesome. And here I thought that all mangaka knew how to draw were gigantic robots that do karate moves (comment meant half as joke, half as a criticism). This is much more what sci-fi is about. It's a shame only one volume has been translated.
