Wow! All I have to say is wow! After finally watching all episodes of Cowboy Bebop I was inspired. So I went straight to writing.
At first my main character was too much like Spike, but then I changed his look up a bit here and there and he started getting his own personality. Anyways, enough of ranting on with the idea. It's my second idea, first was Hako-Bune but I'ma lay off and go on with this.
22nd Century Story
Genres: Science Fiction, Action, I'm feeling Seinen instead of Shounen
Setting: First will be in 21st Century then skip ahead 100 years.
Story is to change in the next couple of days
Louis "Blue" Carter (Nicknamed Blue) is the smartest scientist known in the 21st Century. He is also known for being the first scientist to cryopreserve something living. Although, he has not tried the experiment on a human being.
After Blue hears alot of people and scientist offering to cryopreserve themselves as a test, Blue decides to cryopreserve himself so no one else does. Before his cryopreservation, he makes sure that all traces of doing the project is lost so it can not be repeated. Scientist have tried to get the information, but he hid it so well.
After 100 years of cryopreservation, Blue is unpreserved successfully. But 100 years later, the Earth encountered a planetary cataclysm. When the planet collided with the Earth, the alien species lost most of its resources. Making them take resources from the Earth and kill anything in their way. Now anyone still alive on Earth will have to fight to make it through the 22nd Century.

22nd Century Chapter 1 - Tomorrow Comes Today
Comments: Probably going to make it longer. Felt like I left out some stuff.Code:
INT. LONG CITY 10:15 PM - NIGHT
We start with a big scene of the city drawing closer to one
building and eventually entering it with someone in the
building writing. That someone is Blue.
Sounds of writing
It draws closer to his writing where you could read a few
sentences. He looks at the window and gets up to close it.
He moves to a big laboratory where it looks like a project
is going to happen there. He takes a deep breath then moves
back to his paper and begins writing a little more. After
he's done he puts his pencil down and grabs the telephone.
Dialing a number and calling a best friend of his. Anthony
Oh hey! Whatsup Blue?
Have you gotten the paper work
Yup, sure did. Do you need it,
cause I can d---
No that's fine. I can drop by in
the morning. I can pick it up then
Blue. Once the media sees you, the
first thing coming to you will be
a microphone and a question.
I'll come around there early.
(Looking out the window)
Hopefully no media will crowd me.
Alright then. I'll have it ready.
Both hang up and it shows Anthony.
Really going through with this
-----End of Scene 1-----
EXT. LONG CITY 7:30 AM - MORNING
The sun is rising in the city. Blue is walking out of the
building and walks to his car. He gets in and drives off.
He drives to the house of his best friend Anthony. When Blue
leaves the car, the media he tried getting away from comes
up to him asking questions over the cryopreservation project
Mr. Carter!...Mr. Carter! Did you
have any help on the
Mr. Carter! Who will be used in
WILL there be any paper work
Where will the project be
REPORTERS (ALL TOGETHER)
Mr. Carter! Mr. Carter!
Microphones are coming to his face and pictures are being
taken without any consent. Blue sees an opening in the crowd
and RUNS through it and up to Anthony's house.
Anthony sees Blue throughout a window, opens the door and
SHUTS it quickly then locks it. The people start to knock on
the door and the windows of the house are being crowded by
the audience outside.
Those people outside are crazy!
That's media for ya. They will
loose a leg just to get an answer
out of you.
(Looks outside, disgraced)
They are hungry for this story.
(Sitting on sofa)
Who wouldn't Anthony? This project
could bring eternal life to a
human being. Someone could
rigorously be cryopreserved.
But who would want to do that?
I asked the same question while
doing this project. Then came up
with this answer.
Some people are afraid of death. Since you
don't know whats coming next...you're afraid of
it. Like learning something new. Some
people embrace it and some fear it and run away.
(Looking at Blue, then looks out window)
Everyone has left. Let me get
those papers from upstairs.
Anthony goes upstairs. Blue takes a news paper from the
table and reads through it for a while.
-----End of Scene 2-----
INT. LONG CITY - EVENING
The skies start to turn into mixed colors while the sun
starts to set.
Have you talked to your family?
Yeah I called them the other day. I
need you to give them this
Blue puts the letter on the table and Anthony looks at it
before grabbing it.
Just a last letter before I do
what needs to be done.
Will you remember anything after
Yeah. I'll remember everything
from this century. But I won't
know anything about the century to
come. Hoping it won't be too
I'm hoping so too.
-----End of Scene 3-----
EXT. LONG CITY 12:30 AM - NIGHT
Both Blue and Anthony drive back to the lab without any
media chasing them. The project begins tonight.
They both get out of the car and walk into the building of
Blue's lab. They get started right away.
Alright. Everything set up?
Yup, all systems are go
(Sits at station)
Alright then, setting the
temperature to -200 degrees C.
The temperature in the room is set to very low temperatures
with the door closed.
Lifting the preservation chamber
There is sounds of the preservation chamber being lifted up.
Opening the preservation chamber.
Blue is putting on the preservation clothes. These special
clothes aid the body while at beyond freezing temperatures.
(Looking at Blue)
Everything is ready to go. We open
that door and you go in Blue.
(Takes a deep breath)
I'ma miss you Anthony.
Both look at each other from where they're sitting/standing.
(Smiling, eyebrows slightly raised)
I'ma miss you too Blue.
(Smiles back, then looks at chamber)
Alright, open her up.
Anthony opens the preservation room door and Blue walks
towards it. Once Blue walks in Anthony shuts him in.
Blue walks into the room and goes into the chamber. Blue
hits a button to let Anthony know he's in.
Anthony sees the light blink on and hits the button that
closes the chamber. Once the chamber is closed, Anthony hits
the "preserve" button. The chamber begins to lower into the
ground and the door shuts.
All criticism is very appreciated. Wanting to make both better. The art and definitely the writing.
Thanks for checking this out!

New sketches for Melody, Crash, Sandman, and Mary. Got some character designs down this time, full bodies. Can see some of the personality traits just by looking at them too.
