This achievement is easier than the Platinum Caravan Mode and even Stage 3 Platinum Banchou(Not using Version B).
Why? Well if you have the Version B DLC the Character Ruupu Makes it easy as.
How to do it?
Go to Bulletsoul Version B > Start a game > Press Y to turn on Auto Bomb > Select the far right character Ruupu.
Now as to why Version B is easier it's because Version B doesn't need any Multiplyer requirements to achieve a platinum ranking in each level. Which means you can play the entire game safe. The only thing you have to do is meet the requirement for enough bonus point thing in each stage and don't die more than 1 time(you wont die since when you get hit you will lose a bomb not a life).

Requirements(Copied from xbox360achivements.org DLC translation Topic from A47A47):
In Version B mode, you need to meet the following conditions to a earn platinum medal.
- Miss 1 or less times. (Miss means die)
- Get a certain number of bonuses. (stage1: 8 , stage2: 15 , stage3: 11 , stage4: 9 , stage5: 7).

So basically: Ruupu in Version B with auto bomb, don't use bombs at all unless you need to waste 1 to pick another up before it despawns, when the bomb does auto go off from being hit, use that 5 second shield time to get some melee bashing into the boss!. I'm new to shmups and I did it first go(with auto bomb) with platinum on all 5 levels (not on 2nd loop, 4th time doing 2loop) and 2 lives left(not counting bombs) and I 100% Bulletsouls 70/70 in 2 days (playing about 5 hours a day). So this game isn't that hard if you learn the mechanics and abuse the DLC Character Ruupu to get all the achievements easily.

Other than that do stage 1 and 2 platinum then play it safe also its easy to accidently get platinum on all just by shooting from the bottom of the screen. Then after that you can play the entire game safe because you only need 7 stars to get into 2nd loop(Platinum = 3 Stars, Gold = 2 Stars, Silver = 1 Star).

Other tips would be: Time X for power and movement speed, dependent on bigger enemies or if you need to move faster. Ignore your score completely its useless for this achievement.

You have to learn the bonus point things: to shoot/not shoot and shoot at a specific time/or shoot parts of first, before doing this attempt.

Also you get like 5 bonus lives per 15m(guess), 50m(guess) 100m(guess), 150m(guess), 200m(guess) score, when you hear a ding it means you got another life.

Also I'm not completely sure if its 100% or only the 2nd half 50%, that the last TRUE BOSS (after last boss in loop 2) bombs do no damage, only your guns. Also remember not to die on the boss by running into it, because you will lose a life and not a bomb, remember to always get hit by bullets not physically.

You also have about 48 lives(guessing 2 bombs per stage for pickups)(7 lives with 3 bombs each = 28, + 10 stages of bombs that you can pick up)
Though you can only hold 28 lives at a time including bombs.

So basically at the end when you face the True Last Boss, You should have about 15 lives left(counted by bombs+lives) and you just keep shooting at it and dieing, and using the 5 second shield timer when 1 of your bombs auto go off from being hit, too shoot at it more. You may not even have to dodge any bullets at all due to the amount of spare lives you have. But at least try to dodge. Pretty much Ruupus Damage output will kill the boss before your Lives+Shield Time's run out.

That's it pretty basic takes about 52 minutes, depending on your skill you will finish with 1-3 extra lives spare.

There is a full video of my replay below showing how to get this and all 5 platinum banchous. The Video is also available in 720P.
