Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Crusade (MAHQ's 1st fan manga!!)

Post by artmaster0792 » Mon Dec 11, 2006 2:15 am

Okay folks, while i display the lineart in the Mecha Design and Fanart section, i will (most likely slowly) post the manga itself. For now, however, here is a description on some of the characters...
___________________________

Side Story of C.E.: Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Crusade

The Crusaders

Shiro Takura (Age 22): (MS: Caliber Gundam) a ZAFT special forces commander in the first war in C.E. 71, he has since left the military and now operates a ship that takes contractor jobs for mobile weapons repairs. He is typically a quiet and reserved person, however, Shiro is the poster-boy for easy-going and has a notorius sense of humor. He is believed to have a special "spatial awareness", and in times of desperation, Shiro's abilities seem to dramatically increase. Shiro runs into a beautiful woman while on business, and it quickly becomes close. However, he never thought that his new relationship willl change his life and lives of everyone he knows, forever....

Shinta Kawatoshi (Age 23): (MS: Mitserugi Gundam) one of Shiro's closest friends and fellow teammate in the special forces, Shinta is the more outgoing of the pair, and is always flirting with the ladies. Now business partners aboard the heavy transport carrier Turtle, Shinta actually handles the bulk of negotiations and deal-making. As an experienced soldier, Shinta handles himself rather well in combat, taking on a close combat role with his mobile suit.

Shara Montoya (Age: N/A): a highly skilled mechanic and mobile suit expert, she joins Shiro's crew to help him construct the Gundam-types. While not a professionally trained pilot, she is quite capable in battle. She loves the ZAKU that Shiro recently acquired to use as a construction MS (she even had it modified and painted in her own custom colors). She has devised many of the weaponry used by the mobile suit, sometimes being really creative with the materials she has. Shara takes command of the vessel when Shiro and Shinta are absent.

Lee Satoshi (Age 15): a young natural boy who was forced into the Extended program by Blue Cosmos. Highly intelligent to begin with, he is now sharper and has faster reflexes as a result of the experiment, to the point that he is mistaken for a Coordinator at times. One side effect he suffers from are headaches - sometimes severe. However, Shara was able to find medicine that keeps them away most of the time. Lee aspires to be like Shiro, and has displayed impressive skills in a mobile suit. He usually pilots the ship or mans the weapons station in battle.

Himekimi "Kimi" Hirokaro (Age 15): Shiro's overwhelmingly excited younger cousin. After learning that Shiro was on Earth, she sets out to find him. When she does, she brings chaos to the ship. She pleads with her cousin to stay, however, Shiro does not want her to be in any unnecessary danger. To prove her value to the crew, she hijacks the Caliber Gundam (as Shiro is preparing it for combat) and takes on the enemy on her own. Although she manages well against the grunts, she runs into trouble against Canto himself and seriously damages the Caliber Gundam. Furious, Shiro insists she leaves, however Shara convinces him to allow her to stay - at least temporarily... Kimi develops a "mutual distaste" with Lee, and the two can be found bickering all over the ship.

ZAFT (Zodiac Alliance of Freedom Treaty)

Melanie Takura (Age 22): Shiro's twin sister. A former Linguistics expert for ZAFT and now Project Leader of the Augustus Research and Development Project. They develop and design experimental technologies for PLANT as well as ZAFT. She still holds a rank with ZAFT, however, she is officially noted as a non-combat officer. She recieved a package from her brother the day he suddenly left PLANT and quit ZAFT. The contents were unknown, but it is rumored to be related to their top secret "Project C." Many ZAFT officers believe that they are working on a way to use brain-waves as part of mobile suit operations.

Mindi Asoma: a ZAFT red elite who served in Shiro Takura's Zero Unit in the first war. She is an aggressive pilot and excels in close-range combat. She apparently is/ was engaged to Shinta Kawatoshi prior to the Battle of Jachin Due, however Shinta's abrupt departure from ZAFT has put their relationship in limbo. In C.E. 73, she is assigned to the task of retrieving Shiro and Shinta for reasons unknown. Needless to say, her first encounter with Shinta does not go so well....

Vijay Krishna: a ZAFT officer who butted heads with Shiro at the academy. He is now a test pilot for the Augustus R&D, and was recently assigned to a new variant of an Armory One Gundam. Arrogant as ever, he gladly jumps at the opportunity to hunt down Shiro Takura.


Earth Alliance/ Blue Cosmos - "Lightning Mask" 102nd Autonomous Unit)

Zakku Rei Canto (Age: ??): The enigmatic "Lightning Mask." A Lt. Colonel who works for Blue Cosmos, he supervised a secret project for the Extended program in the post-war years. No one knows his true identity, as he wears a mask on his face. He is ordered by Blue Cosmos leaders to track down Shiro's ship and take back the test subjects in order to keep the project covered up. He has many esources at his disposal, including Extended test subjects that are used to attack the transport carrier Turtle.

Katsumi Menoshin (Age: 22): (MS: GAT-04K Jet Windam Katsumi Custom) Katsumi is a dedicated officer for the Earth Alliance, however, like most of the staff serving under "Lightning Mask," she is not aware of his affiliation with the Blue Cosmos. She is an ace pilot and has earned the rank of Lieutenent for her efforts. As of late, she has become suspicious of Canto's actions and his motives, but has no way to prove it. One day, she met a young man named Shiro Takura, and her life changed forever...

Damien Kamekaze (Age: 25): a vicious and dangerous Earth Alliance lieutenent who shows no mercy in combat. He does not hesitate to kill, or to carry out his orders. Canto believes he is up to no good, however, Damien despises Canto and plans to eliminate him one day. His motives remain a secret, though he plans to get more powerful weapons to use at his disposal. Damien does not seem to hate Shiro Takura, but seems to enjoy battling him, considering him "a worthy Warrior of Light to his Warrior of Darkness."

Gold Star Mercenary Forces

Kurizu Fakiyara (Age: 25): a former law enforcement official who uses mobile suits to protect and serve the populous (for a price, of course). He pilots his organization's first prototype mobile suit named "Police Gundam." Skilled at close range combat as well as an incredible sniper, the Police Gundam reflects his capabilities. His forces later develop the mass produced version of the Police Gundam - the Deputy. His first meeting with Shiro and co. does not go well, as he is hired by the Earth Alliance to capture the Turtle.

Jinto: a former ace journalist and now ranking member of the Gold Stars. Jinto continues to write as a freelance journalist by writing about his experiences as a mercenary. He also looks at the lives of the innocent civilians that suffered in the war. He specializes in long-range weaponry and has an Astray customized for a long range beam sniper rifle.

Reizou: a new member to the Gold Stars, he is formally of the Earth Alliance, and works as one of Kurizu's battalion leaders. Unknown to most, he was one of the few survivors of his EA squadron. His unit battled against ZAFT's elite Zero Unit at the Battle of Boaz. His girlfriend, Missy, also works as a communications specialists for the Gold Stars.

Alright, the following is a listing of the mecha that will appear in this manga. If time permits, images of the mecha will be added in with the profiles at a later date.

The Crusaders

ZGMF-SX01 Caliber Gundam
http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q89/ ... semode.jpg
– a custom-built mobile suit capable of high speed combat. With a powerful array of beam weaponry (like any good prototype Gundam), the Caliber is highly effective unit. However, like any battery powered unit, beam weapons drain it, so the Caliber is also equipped with conventional projectile weapons as well. The cockpit is capable of separating from the mobile suit’s torso with the main propulsion system, becoming an independent craft called the Core Fighter. It is suspected that this design was an early concept for ZAFT’s versatile ZGMF-X56S Impulse Gundam. This is further supported by the fact that it can also equip Striker Packs (used originally on the OMNI’s GAT-X105 Strike Gundam) and Silhouette Packs (used originally on ZAFT’s ZGMF-X56S Impulse Gundam). It is later upgraded to the High Caliber Gundam after being damaged in battle.

ZGMF-SX02 Mitserugi Gundam
http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q89/ ... Gundam.jpg
– a new generation mobile suit designed for high speed close combat. It was designed with high maneuverability in mind, thus allowing it be in almost any position while wielding hand weapons. Because it is almost entirely devoted to offensive attacks, it has armor in all the vital places. It is later upgraded after being severely damaged in battle to the Mitserugi Gundam Kai, giving it two giant shield boosters to protect it from long-range assaults.
Unit type: prototype close combat, all-purpose mobile suit
Manufacturer: ZAFT / Junk Guild
Operator: Junk Guild

ZGMF– 1000PT ZAKU Warrior Pre-production Test Type
–This model was a test type for the “New Millennium Series” of ZAFT MS, while its capabilities are limited compared to the Gundams, in the hands of an expert, it can outmaneuver many superior mobile suits. However, this ZAKU’s role is mainly focused on ship repairs and salvage operations. While it comes as a fully equipped combat mobile suit, several “Worker Silhouette” packs are devised by Shiro and Shara to adapt it to different tasks.
Unit type: general purpose test type mobile suit for mass production
Manufacturer: ZAFT (Zodiac Alliance of Freedom Treaty)
Operator: ZAFT / Crusaders

Pilot: Shara Montoya, June Masato (main), Shinta Kawatoshi, Shiro Takura, Lee Satoshi (main)

ZGMF-5000 GELGOOG Enforcer -(GEneration LiberatinG Of Opposition Guardian Enforcer)
- a prototype ZAFT design that is was never built. With the generator power, armament, and maneuverability equivalent to the Gundam type, it was intended to be ZAFT’s most powerful mass produced model. However, this design was deemed too costly for mass production. Instead a limited production model was proposed, and the development on it began at PLANT’s R&D Division. However, with the adaptable ZAKU Warrior and ZAKU Phantom and the powerful GOUF Ignited series performing rather well, it was deemed unnecessary to construct it. At Shiro’s request, a GELGOOG Enforcer was scheduled to be built by their new allies in the Diablo Mercenaries. However, it's current production status is unknown. (NOTE: This unit only appears as a design on Shiro’s desk ------ for now) >>>> yes, folks I made a Gelgoog.

Vessels:

S.S. Turtle – the home to Shiro Takura, Shinta Kawatoshi, and their crew. Custom built from a variety of ships, it sometimes goes on the fritz. However, it usually comes through in the end. Designed to look like a giant turtle, it is easily underestimated. Its “shell” is a thick layer of armor that protects the crew. The cargo hold is located at the rear, with 2 launch pads extending from each side, with cargo bay doors on each side of the forward bridge. The large bay houses the two Gundams, later on the ZAKU, as well as the accessories and maintenance equipment. The main bridge is capable of retracting into the body of the carrier in order to protect it during combat. Its hull is lined with many hidden weapons. It is equipped with powerful engines and has the ability to hover over the ground as well as underwater, but has never been tested in space.
Class: Kame class
Unit type: heavy transport/ mobile suit carrier
Armaments: Plasma Cannon x 8, anti-aircraft missile x 50, Railgun x 4, missile launcher x 4, beam cannon x 2, Grappler x 2,
Mobile Weapons: ZGMF-SX01 Caliber Gundam, ZGMF-SX02 Mitserugi Gundam, ZGMF-X32A Crusader Gundam, ZGMF-1000/PT ZAKU Warrior Pre-production test type x 1
Captain(s): Shiro Takura (main), Shinta Kawatoshi, Shara Montoya

Pegasus – a new type of battleship derived from the Archangel Class, it is the result of new advances in technologies and pre-existing ideas that have been overwhelmingly successful. Serving as Shiro Takura’s personal ship, he has incorporated many designs from various sources. While a third of its design is actually taken from an incomplete Archangel class battleship, the rest is made up from other vessels, as well as new original components. Its hull is double reinforced by a laminated armor, as well as having all of its weaponry hidden within the hull. For its massive size, it is incredibly agile due to its new propulsion systems. Lined with powerful thrusters over its hull, the Pegasus can turn on a dime, allowing for more strategic combat techniques. In addition, the ship has a state-of-the-art A.I. that can assist in many areas of ship functions. This allows a minimal amount of crew necessary at anytime. A redesigned nuclear reactor provides the Pegasus with more beam weaponry and power. As a favor from ORB, the large, retractable wing binders are encased with the golden "Yata-no-Kagami" anti-beam defensive reflection system first used in ORB-01 Akatsuki. In terms of mobile weapons, it can hold a maximum of twelve mobile suits.
Unit Type: Mobile Assault Battleship
Class: Pegasus Class Battleship
Operator: Crusaders
Accommodations: 280 crewmembers maximum,
Design Features: “Yata-no-Kagami" anti-beam defensive reflection system for Wing Binders x 6; Positron Deflector x 1; Bridge Evacuation Module, Rocket-propelled anchors x 4, hover system
Armament: unknown (at this time)
Mobile Weapons: ZGMF-X32A Crusader Gundam x 1; ZGMF-X25A Gallant Gundam x 1; ZGMF-SX01/z High Caliber Gundam x 1; FMW-00 Police Gundam (and SWAT conversion)
Captain: Shiro Takura

Of course, lol. I'm going to see if i can get a scan done of the first couple pages soon. Also keep checking as i'm going to be randomly updating the profiles so far.

So, how's the storyline so far? This has been a long time coming... I hope everyone will like it. 8)

ZAFT (Zodiac Alliance of Freedom Treaty) Mechanical Profiles

ZGMF- X324S Crusader Gundam
– From a concept by Shiro and Shinta (while at ZAFT), and designed by Shiro himself, this powerful prototype mobile suit was intended as part of ZAFT’s second generation mobile suits. The Crusader serves as a testbed for the latest advances in mobile weapon technology, specifically with beam weaponry. Shiro based the two Gundams’ design on knights, creating an elegant and unique look. The Crusader Gundam is designed to transform into an aerodynamic and agile fighter capable of high speed combat and maneuvering, plus atmospheric entry/ re-entry. It is also equipped with experimental beam DRAGOONS that give it bird-like wing binders.
Unit Type: Prototype Experimental Technology Variable Mobile Suit
Manufacturer: ZAFT (Augustus R&D)
Operator: Crusaders/ ZAFT
First Deployment: November C. E. 73
Accommodation: pilot only in linear cockpit in torso (rotates with transformation)

ZGMF- X325S Gallant Gundam
– the second entry under Project C, this second generation mobile suit serves as a testbed for new, experimental technologies. One such feature is its unique beam sword, a new version of the Mitserugi Gundam’s “Reverse Beam Sword”, except this time it has beam cannons at the tip, and the Gallant Gundam carries two of them. Instead of being a strict close combat suit, the Gallant comes with a Mobile Glider pack on its back. It allows extra maneuverability in close range combat and provides a means of quickly closing the distance between enemies. It is also armed with wire beam cutters on its hip armor in order to increase its ranged attack capabilities. While still a knight in appearance, Shinta intended it to draw a resemblance to a Roman gladiator.
Unit Type: Prototype Experimental Technology Close Combat Mobile Suit

http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q89/ ... Gundam.jpg
– this custom orange ms, is a new and updated version of Nicol Armafu’s GAT - X207 Blitz Gundam. Customized to her liking, it is effectively used by Asoma in an attempt to capture the rouge Gundams and its pilots. Armed with hidden folding melee knives, an EM Pulse cannon (capable of shutting down an enemy unit), a new sensor-blinding device, and a long beam sword, this makes the BB a tough adversary. While Mindi is not the most experienced soldier, she makes up for that with the BB’s stealth system.
Model number: ZGMF-X207/ B
Code name: Blade Blitz Gundam
Unit type: prototype melee combat mobile suit
Manufacturer(s): ZAFT
Operator(s): ZAFT (Zodiac Alliance of Freedom Treaty)

ZGMF-X88S/V Gaia Gundam “V Eagle”
– a customized version of the Gaia Gundam, this version sports more thrusters and a new set of flight wings to improve stability and maneuverability, plus increase its flight time. In the right hands, the Gaia Gundam can be a monster in battle. Due to its unique transformation, it is more agile than most mobile suits. Like the original, it turns into a BaCUE – type mobile quadruped, capable of high speed ground combat. With the addition of the flight wings it appears to resemble eagle wings, (but tends to look more like a Pegasus). These binders give it a far better chance in space combat.

ZGMF-600 GuAIZ Commander Type (Special Operations Custom)
- ZAFT’s last and most powerful combat mobile suit produced in the First Alliance/ ZAFT War. Shiro Takura and Shinta Kawatoshi piloted two of the first GuAIZ’s fielded, and had them customized with additional armor/ weapons as part of their special operation team. On the S.S. Turtle, there happens to be a silver and blue GuAIZ that does not do much. As of yet, there is no explanation, but it could possibly be the same model Shiro used in the war. Its first appearance shows it being used as a construction MS, with a modified Worker Silhouette pack attached.

Excellent tech specs! Again it seems that it is hard to make up something truly original when it comes to mechas these days since I've seen a couple of configurations that are similar to mine. :wink: Great minds think alike!

And I am clearly not the only one anxiously waiting for this!
-We will not be caught by surprise!
*Almost everyone I've killed uttered similar last words.
-Then I am glad once again that you are on my side.
*They've often said that too.

GFAS-X00P Destroy Gundam Prototype Version
– most likely the single most destructive mobile suit ever created, the GFAS-X1 Destroy Gundam more than lived up to its name as it leveled the city of Berlin in CE 73. That version, unbelievably, is actually the scaled down version of the original prototype. While it is hard to believe, this monster packs in even more destructive power than an army of X1 Destroys. Given to Damien Kamekaze in order to achieve “maximum effect,” this monster allows him to satisfy his thirst for destruction.

GAT -669 Absolution Gundam
A result of a top secret development project funded and supported by the Blue Cosmos. Development on this mobile suit began around the time of ZAFT’s ZGMF-X13A Providence Gundam, but was never completed. Restarted by Zakku Rei Canto’s thirst for power, this mobile suit benefits from recent technologies developed for the monstrous GFAS-X1 Destroy Gundam. This mobile suit has a hover system and a deadly new beam weapon called Vipers. Its body is designed to separate into several components, becoming remote beam weapons. It is designed to combine with the powerful mobile armor Final. Canto takes this unit into battle to begin his attempt at world domination and to destroy Shiro Takura and bring their “game” to a close.

GAT -669F Final Absolution Gundam
After receiving damage from Shiro Takura’s ZGMF-324 Crusader Gundam, Canto’s GAT-669 Absolution Gundam docks with the powerful mobile armor named Final, the result is a newtype – controlled killing machine. Enhancing his Newtype abilities even more, he can automatically perform ranged attacks with his mind. Fast and maneuverable, it has large grapplers that can tear enemies apart.

I know it nprobably takes forever to draw a manga chapter, but all this waiting is slowly killing me.

Hey all, be sure to look back at the previous posts, many of the profiles now have an image next to it. Tell me what you think! The characters themselves will be getting an update soon. For now, though, I will leave you guys with a dramatic scene of the characters...

Let me guess, title page? That looks awesome. I'm very impressed with your work.





Now, when will you finish that first chapter? This is reminding me of megatokyo.

Actually, yes, it is. To be honest, the first chapter is done, however, i'm going back and making corrections, and adding effects and such. The longest part is that I end up putting too much detail there, and not enough here and so on.

The second problem i'm having is determining how long a chapter should be. The first part is a flashback to the Battle of Jachin Due, and i think i should make that alone the first chapter. Any ideas as to how long a manga chapter tends to be? (I don't have any Gundam manga with me at the moment).

I don't know. Maybe 20-30, depending on what you wanna do with it. Or you could just go with 10 or soemthing like that. I'd just draw until I get what I wanted done.

LOL, I think that's what i've been doing up until now.... 20-30 seems right.... then again, it'll take me FOREVER to get to Chapter 3... however, i'm drawing it on regular-sized 8 1/2 x 11 copy paper, so there will usually be more things going on per page.

Oh, by the way, this fanmanga will read left to right so anyone can read it who is unfamiliar with the standard manga style.

And Folken, what do you mean that this reminds you of megatokyo?

Thanks for the comment, the next set of posts should be focused on characters.

Just today I acquired an India Ink pen, and for those of you that don't know, this special ink is VERY dark and could possibly be my remedy for detailing those troublesome space backgrounds.

This could mean that I might have the first chapter up sooner than I expected. However, I want to do some tests first, to see if leaving it in pencil looks better as opposed to detailing it with a pen.

EDIT: new character profiles added under EA, ZAFT and the Gold Stars, as well as minor revisions here and there.
