"2075: Meister Titano's Counterattack" by Yukiko Takayama

"2075: MEISTER TITANO'S COUNTERATTACK"
Written by Yukiko Takayama, the author primarily responsible for 1975's Terror of Mechagodzilla, this 7-chapter side story acts as a continuation of the movie, taking place 100 years in the future in 2075. Here, the body of Katsura (referred to as "L・K" or "Lady Kay") is found by a mining corporation, which also has in its possession the revived form of Titanosaurus as a cyborg, Mecha-Titanosaurus (referred to in the story as "Titano" or "Meister Titano"). As a revolution begins to unfold within the corporation, the paths of Katsura and Titanosaurus cross once again...

The full story can be found in the Japanese mook, "Tokusatsu Hiho vol.5", while an English synopsis of the story is mentioned in John LeMay's "The Big Book of Japanese Giant Monster Movies: The Lost Films":

[...] Set 100 years after the events of Terror of Mechagodzilla in 2075, Katsura is revived by a deep sea mining corporation. The corporation uses thousands of human androids with A.I. to do their bidding and in their midst is a revived cyborg version of Titanosaurus. When the robots, led by the Mecha-Titanosaurus, revolt and attack Tokyo, Katsura is called in to deal with the situation. In the story's last moments, Katsura boards a submarine which is attacked by Titanosaurus. He recognizes Katsura floating in the deep water and picks her up in his hand. The two have a final moment of reflection wherein both realize they are cybernetic shells of their former selves and Katsura drowns in the depths.

I have the book too, and I would love to read the whole story. :)

I am available to translate from Japanese to English. It's going to take some time, because I'm still a beginner in Japanese, but I'm glad to translate it.

I'm wondering this too, but I'm pleasantly surprised to see that it exists at all.

Probably through flashbacks, but this sounds like a Katsura-centric story just like Terror of Mechagodzilla.

If he is in it, he's going to be an afterthought.

Old Man Logan Godzilla. Just kinda stands up out of the sea, all hunched over, and growls in the final shot.

I could translate all the poop, but right now I’m too concerned with finishing college/getting drunk. If anyone has a pdf/amazon link or a way to buy it please pm me

Honestly what year is this made in? A lot of kanji here should be my level but turns out to be quite random and obscure.

Was this a possible film project/idea that never got off, or was this done independently by Takayama?

As far as I'm aware, this was an independent project by Takayama. It'd certainly explain why Titanosaurus or Katsura are never name-dropped and instead go by abbreviations. The Japanese name Titanosaurus is actually "Chitanozaurusu" (チタノザウルス), but the text refers to him as "Taitano" (タイターノ).
