For thousands of years there has been a belief
amongst philosophers that advanced civilizations
had existed before on the Earth. Among the names
used to represent such civilizations were ones
known as Atlantis and Mu.
In the later half of the 20th century, several
mysterious events began to happen. At the end
of World War II in the Pacific, one of the Imperial
Japanese Navy's most powerful submarines
seemingly disappeared from the face of the Earth.
Years later, several kidnappings had occurred
in Japan with the victims mainly being engineers.
However, coincidental luck helped prevent the
kidnapping of a former Japanese admiral and his
"niece". In the event, the kidnappers
fled but not before revealing they were from the
ancient empire known as Mu. At first, the modern
world found the information too incredible to
believe but a film delivered into their hands
by a Mu agent provided the truth along with additional
disasters and the destruction of a civilian ship
through means not known to mankind.
The Mu Empire was a civilization that existed
12,000 years ago and they occupied a landmass
that occupied an enormous part of the Pacific
Ocean. Through some kind of cataclysm, the landmass
on which the Mu occupied sank to the bottom of
the Pacific Ocean in one night. However, they
managed to survive by tapping into the heat that
emanated from the Earth's core. In addition,
some remnants of their presence have remained
with them stating that they built the legendary
statues on Easter Island.
A Mu was virtually indistinguishable from a normal
human except for the fact that their body temperature
was abnormally high and that they could use it
as a defense mechanism when they dealt with a
situation that may require them to go hand-to-hand
combat. Ruled by an Empress and with the next
in line being the High Priest of Mu, they worshipped
a deity called Manda, which was an enormous sea-dragon.
Remaining hidden throughout the 12,000 years,
the Mu civilization continued to advance their
civilization. By the time they revealed themselves
to modern humanity, they had submarines that could
dive to depths unthinkable in the eyes of humans.
Furthermore, they had diving suits that could
withstand the pressures of the darkest depths
of the world's ocean. While residing deep in the
Pacific Ocean, the Mu did take note of human events
throughout the centuries. For a very long time,
the Mu felt safe from the humans until August
1945 when they stumbled onto an A-403 submarine.
After forcing its captain and crew to flee, they
discovered the blueprints for a ship called the
Gotengo that could give humanity the possibility
to reach them. Deciding to strike first, they
attempted through different means to find out
more information while moving to reclaim what
they believe was their home. When they made their
presence known to the world, one of the things
that the Mu demanded was for the world find the
Gotengo and destroy it as the craft posed a great
threat to the Mu Empire.
Eventually one of their spies managed to find
out where the Gotengo was located and after kidnapping
two hostages, set off the bomb that badly damaged
the dockyard that housed the Gotengo.
Given the fact that humanity had failed to get
rid of the undersea-battleship, the Mu decided
to commence their main plans for conquest. Among
those plans were to create a devastating earthquake
in Tokyo as well as devastating Tokyo Bay with
one of their submarines.
However, their pride and stubbornness eventually
lead to their downfall with the Gotengo breaking
free of the ruins of the destroyed dockyard where
it was built. After rescuing the hostages and
capturing the empress and negotiating fruitlessly
with her to end the Mu Empire's aggression,
the Gotengo plunged like a knife into the Mu Empire.
Even Manda was unable to stop the invaders and
was frozen solid by the Gotengo's main weapon,
its absolute zero cannon. The humans aboard the
incredible warship soon found the main power source
of the Mu Empire and destroyed it in an enormous
explosion with a combination of freeze weapons
and explosives. Seeing her empire dying, the Empress
departed the Gotengo with the permission of the
ship's captain to join her people in death
