*While normally the pilot chapter is not regarded as part of a series, with Kochikame it was included as the first chapter in the collections (many pilot chapters are never collected or only appear in a collection of rarities by the author) and in celebrating the fortieth anniversary of the series (in the 42nd issue of 2016, mirroring the 42nd issue of 1976 where the serialization began), it was this chapter that was printed in full color, rather than the one in 42-1976.

Since Kochikame never actually numbered its chapters, there is no official chapter one, but it is likely the pilot has retroactively been made the first chapter simply because in it, Ryo-san is accompanied by Keiichi Nakagawa who would become the second most frequently appearing character in the series, whereas in the serialization he was not introduced until a few chapters in and Kinji Totsuka was Ryotsu's first companion.

As collections were much slower to come out during this era, by the time the first volume came out, Totsuka had mostly been written out of the series and Keiichi took his place, making the first chapter of the serialization relevant to readers of the early chapters while the pilot is relevant to readers of any era.
