Before it ended, this series ran concurrently with the Gundam SEED Astray manga series and its sequel, X Astray. However Astray R focuses on the Red-Framed Astray and its pilot Lowe Gear, and its art is by a different artist, Yasunari Toda. Certain events are depicted in both the Astray R and the Astray manga but most of the story in the two manga are meant to complement each other. In Japan there is also a photonovel series, Astray B, which focuses on the story of the Blue-Framed Astray and its pilot, Gai Murakumo.
