I haven't done a new timeline in awhile, so I thought I'd try one based on Japanese popular culture as I have known it.  Later, I intend to follow up with an overall history of the timeline, to give sense of what its history would be like.

 

The Primeval Era

The Universe began with the creation of the great swirling mass of primal energy that later came to be known as the "Galaxy Cauldron". (1) From the heart of the Cauldron, there eventually sprang forth the being known as the Phoenix, which caused life to spread throughout the universe, and the being known as the Great Will of the Macrocosm, which caused selected life forms to develop a sense of purpose.

As life spread, various higher beings also came into existence. these were the gods later worshipped by many raaces, including humanity.  And, as life spread, so did its necessary counterpart, death, overseen by the beings known as shinigami.

On the Earth, the creatures known as dinosaurs arose to dominate the planet. Intelligent humanoids of unknown provenance also dwelt on the Earth in those days, and one of them, the mad witch Queen Bandora, caused a meteor to strike the Earth, brining about the extinction of most of the dinosaurs.

Even as this was happening, the last of the higher beings to spring from the Galaxy Cauldron, Selene and Nephelenia, emerged and began the long journey that would eventually bring them to Earth.


For the next several million years, life on Earth recovered and developed, only to be set back again after a visit by the space dragon known as "King Ghidorah".

 

Life once again recovered and developed, occasionally abetted and modified by various alien visitors. Eventually, the human race evoled. However, for reasons as yet unknown, human evolution diverged, so that in addition to "normal" humans, there arose races of elves, centaaurs, goat-folk, angel-folk, mer-folk, draconids, and others. Meanwhile, in Antarcitca, the snake-people evolved, unrelated to humanity, but just as intelligent.

The Legendary Age

Humanity grew, and began to divide up into nations.  As they did so, there were the first manifestations of the beings that later came to be known as "Hetalians", strange living national avatars, whose behaviors reflected those of the nations that spawned them.

The founding of the Silver Millennium Moon Kingdom and the Elysian Golden Kingdom marked the beginning of what come to be thought of as a golden age, where the world was divided up into myriad kingdoms, largely at peace with one another. Still there were adventures a-plety during these years, and heroes lived to become legends, including Link of Hyrule, Marth of Altea, and the sorceress Lina Inverse.

In what would come to be known as the Kanto region, a civilization arose which created the bizarre creatures known as Pokémon. However, when this civilization collapsed some ten thousand years later, the Pokémon escpaed into the wild and spread throughout the world, largley supplanting "normal" animals in most ecological niches.

The end of the Legendary Age is generally fixed to the fall of the Golden and Silver Kingdoms, which lead to worldwide convulsions. One fragment of civiliation that did survive was on what would come to be known as Infant Island, where the creature known as Mothra was created to defend the Earth from external threats. Other surviviors included the undersea kingdon of Mu and Seatopia.

 

50,000 B.C.: In what will one day be known as the Kanto region,  a civilization adept at both science and sorcery arises. From their bioengineering, the first Pokémon are created.

Historical Times

At this point in history, much - though by no means all- of the magic went out of the world.  Many of the world's retreated to remote, inaccessible "hidden kingdoms", some even to extradimensional realms.  Those powerful magical weapons talismans that did remain - such as the cursed sword Soul Edge and the eto gun - were considered all the more precious for their rarity, and were fought over fiercely, sometimes even for centuries. Those magical creatures that still walked the Earth sometimes found themselves hunted by the monster-hunters known "Darkstalkers".

Human history continued much as it did in our own world until shortly after the Second World War, when the Planet Mamango passed through our Solar System, prompting terrestrial scientists to pay it a visit. Humanity was taking a closer look at the wider universe.  As though to return the favor, the wider universe wasabout to start taking a closer look at it.

The Age of Monsters and Heroes

the beginning of this age is usually fixed at the first appearance of Godzilla, first of myriad kaiju that would both ravage and defend the Earth for decades to come. The kaiju attacks led to great advances in technology, as humans began developing the giant robots and robot warsuits known as "mecha" to defend humanity. As awell as human-controlled machines, this era saw the first development of artificial intelligence, with the invention of such androids as Cutie Honey, Senbei Arale and later, Astro Boy. These would be much needed as this era saw the commencement of numberless attempts by various alien groups to conquer the Earth. 

Additionally, the age was marked by an explosion in the number of super-heroes. the first modern "super-hero", the golden Bat, had first appeared in 1930. However, their numbers really began to grow in the 1960's and 1970's. Some heroes came form space, but most were home-grown.

One positive effect of the alien invasions was that humanity finally came to understand that they could no longer afford to fight amongst themselves, and so it was that in the year 2000 the human race was united under the titular reign of Neo-Queen Serenity and King endymoin of the newly-established Silver Millennium Kingdom of Crystal Tokyo.

Space Age


Although space colonization efforts had begun in the late Twentieth Century, it was in the Twenty-First that humanity began to spread out into space, colonizing the Solar System. Tensions beween humanity on Earth and in space broke out into violence as a group of colonies calling itself the Principality declared war on Earth. The Earth Federation developed the weapon known as the Mobile Suit Gundam, which eventually hleps them to win the war.

Most of the Twenty-second Century was a time of peaceful expansion, until at the century's end, Earth wa ssuddenly attacked by the Gamilon Empire. There followed a series of short, sharp conflicts with the Comet Empire, the Black Star Cluster Empire, the Bolar Federation and the Dinguil Empire. At the end of these conflicts, Earth found itself in alliacne with their former Gamion enemies, now known as the Galman Emoire. Humanity then began to spread across the universe in earnest.

(1)Legend has it  that just before the creation of the Galaxy Cauldron, a male voice was heard to shout "Haruhi, no!"

 

(2)I'm positing that Battle Royale is somewhat less lethal in this timeline.

 

(3)I'm kind of mixing up the anime and manga continuities, here.

 

(4)I'mm positing that in a world where magic is known to exist, L would be alot quicker to consider a supernatural solution to the problem of Kira, and would quickly call in an experienced sorceress, which I'm assuming Sakura would be by this time.

 

(5)Since I'm positing that the Earth is empty at this point in its history, I'm arbitrarily shifting the events of this series to an Earrh colony world.
