Crossbone Gundam Manga (Vol. 1-6) - English Translation (From Zeonic|Scanlation)

ZeonicScanlations has finally released today their entire 'ENGLISH TRANSLATED' Crossbone Gundam manga series (Vol. 1-6). They will be working on Crossbone Gundam Steel 7 manga series soon, but don't hold your breath for that release...since they usually take a pretty long time to complete a series.

For those who do not know what the manga series Crossbone Gundam is all about. Here is some info from wikipedia:

Crossbone re-takes some of the characters created by Tomino in the movie Mobile Suit Gundam F91, but several years later. It has never been distributed in English.

Universal Century (UC) 0133. Ten years after the events of the Cosmo Babylon Wars depicted in F91, 13 year-old protagonist Tobia Arronax is a transfer student from Earth heading to the Jupiter colonies aboard the Smashion Jovian transport ship. When space pirates of the Crossbone Vanguard attacks the Smashion with their ship, the Mother Vanguard, Tobia willingly sorties out in a Jovian mobile suit to hold them off. Unfortunately, he is captured by Crossbone Vanguard ace pilot Kincaid Nau and brought before their leader Berah Ronah, who offers him a choice: either head straight to Jupiter and forget what has happened or join them to discover the "truth". Tobia hesistantly joins with the pirates, but little does he know the Vanguard's agenda is one of resistance than of piracy.
In reality, the Jovians have been secretly building up their military for years, forming the
Jupiter Empire, with the goal of Earth Sphere domination. Their ruthless leader Crux Dogatie maintains a fa├žade of partnership with the Earth Federation, so as to avoid suspicion by the Federal government. Learning the truth, Tobia allies with the Crossbone Vanguard, and under Kincaid's tutelage, becomes one of their most prominent pilots, while using the XM-X2 Crossbone Gundam X-3, while slowly developing his Newtype abilities.
