Lock-on Adept
With a plane with lock-on capability, keep lock-on to a single target for 30 seconds.

This achievement calls for a plane with lock-on capability, so Zen-ichi (Red player) can't be used for this achievement. With Yun (Blue player) or Sadaharl (Yellow player), their cross shot will automatically locks-on to target it hits. The achievement requires you to maintain this lock-on for 30 seconds.
(For unfamiliar terms or concepts, please see Incomplete Guide to Bulletsoul)

This achievement is tougher than it sounds. The point is that it requires lock-on to a single "target", not a single "enemy". So if you try for this simply on bosses, their parts are usually destroyed within 30 seconds, thus moving the lock-on to another target.

A sure way to do this is to have a lock-on to the body of boss, not its parts, then avoid to attack the body, prolonging the fight as long as you can. Perhaps it's easier to see from a video than words.

As can be seen from the video, the method described here requires a bit of skill. If you'd find a easier answer, you should write a solution!

Comments on the video
0:20 The video destroys the right side parts of the boss, but this is not essential. You can concentrate on the left side instead.

0:28 Chest part destroyed. You must destroy this before you have a lock-on to the boss body.

0:35 Leaving some of the right side parts intact. I hate the bullet pattern when the all right side parts of the boss are destroyed, but that's a matter of personal taste.

0:39 Carefully locking-on to have a minimum number of lock-on. In this video, 2 lasers are locked. Locking-on 3 lasers might be OK, but if you locked-on 4 or more lasers, there's a very good chance that you destroy the boss before 30 seconds passes. If you had too many lasers locked, release the shot button and lock-on again.

Once you've got a good lock-on, keep your position on the edge of the screen to avoid acquiring more locks.

1:14 Just to be sure, you don't need to die to unlock this achievement. The play on the video simply died right after meeting the condition to unlock this achievement.
