Stage 1 Banchou
Earn a platinum medal on stage 1 of Banchou mode.

To unlock this achievement, you have to earn a platinum medal (the best rating) on playing stage 1 of Banchou mode. This must be done on Banchou mode. The achievement won't unlock even if you got platinum on stage 1 while playing the normal mode.

This is the first in a series of achievements for getting platinum medals on Banchou mode and I think this will serve as an entry point to the advanced level of playing in this game.

(Please see Incomplete Guide to Bulletsoul for unfamiliar terms or concepts.)

The bonuses you can earn in stage 1 can be broken down into three types.

1. In-stage bonuses. There are 9 of these.
2. Bomb bonus for the remaining bombs at the end of the stage. Up to 3.
3. No miss bonus for not dying in the stage.

Of these, bomb bonus doesn't matter. No miss is a must and you need most of the in-stage bonuses.

Conditions for the platinum
A Japanese magazine Famitsu Xbox 360 has shown the detailed condition for the platinum medal.

Not died, got 80% of in-stage bonuses and earned a certain value of Soul Gauge multiplier (30 for this stage).
(Drawn from p.112 of the June 2011 issue of Famitsu Xbox 360.)

Also thanks to this knowledge, we can have a more detailed analysis of why you fail to get platinum.
1. If you died twice or more - try again and don't die!
2. If you died once (or didn't die) and got silver - you need to get more in-stage bonuses.
3. If you died once and got gold - you got sufficient in-stage bonuses. Try not to die next time.
4. If you didn't die and got gold - you need more multiplier. Fight aggressively!

In-stage bonuses
This section describes the in-stage bonuses in order. For bonuses with related achievements, I have written about bonus on those achievements' solution, so please refer to that.

Formation special bonus - 10,000 pts.
This bonus requires you to destroy enemies after they have formed a formation. The scene to earn this bonus comes right after the beginning of the stage. You'll quite likely to miss this if you kept destroying enemies as they appear.

Wait till these 4 enemies align in straight line.

Then destroy them at once for a special bonus of 10,000 points.

Building destruction bonus - 30,000 pts. x2
See ビル倒壊 in Bullet Soul (JP) for details. Don't give up if you missed the 2nd of these. You still have a chance for platinum if you got all other bonuses.

Formation special bonus - 10,000 pts.
Same as the first bonus of this stage. The power-up item carrier will be a good sign to know that this bonus is coming.

Elimination special bonus - 20,000 pts.
After playing for a while, these enemies appear on rooftop of a building.

By destroying all of them, you'll earn a special bonus of 20,000 points.

Boss parts destruction special bonus - 100,000 pts.
Elimination secret bonus - 40,000 pts.
Bonuses for Captain Titan mini-boss battle. See キャプテンタイタン撃破 in Bullet Soul (JP) for details.

Juggleon special bonus - 80,000 pts.
See 同時破壊 in Bullet Soul (JP) for details.

Boss parts destruction special bonus - 100,000 pts.
If you defeated the stage 1 boss after destroyed all of its parts, you'll get this bonus.

Of all these bonuses, I think most of them are not very difficult, except for the building destruction. So first, practice till you won't die easily, then try to earn all the in-stage bonuses. If you couldn't get platinum even if you didn't die, record your replay and check it out for which bonus you've missed.
