In ''Plamo-Kyoshiro'', the system of Gunpla Battles is known as '''Plamo Simulation'''.  (The term Plamo comes from '''''PLA'''stic '''MO'''del'' ) The battles take place through a device called the '''Plamo Simulation Machine'''.  The players put their plamos into the domes of the Machine (See the image below), sit on the seats, they enter the information of their models in the simulation console and put on a specialized helmet. They dive into the virtual battlefield on the unison exclamation of the ‘'''Plamo Simulation Go'''!’ command.

The battle is directly imaged in the players’ minds while spectators view it on screens. The damage suffered by the models in battle is replicated on the real life kits by a system of lasers and mechanical arms. if the model is destroyed on the simulation, it will be destroyed on real life. however, this configuration can be changed for training purposes. Modifications done on the kits can affect the battle, like using a different material to build the parts or adding gimmicks like springs and tasers. If the player uses high quality materials the model will have a much better performance and  resistance in the simulation. In the manga some encounters are fought with a time limit.

The machine sets the combat battleground randomly. These range from outer space to deserts, (the old west), forests, jungles, and streets of ruined cities, suburbs, metropolitan areas and futuristic environments and even Jurassic times and other unlikely venues.  Also, the players can make dioramas and connect the dioramas to the Plamo Simulation Machine and use them as a battleground for the battles. [[File:Facial_Expresions.png|thumb|176px|Facial expresions ]]

When players fight using a plastic model of a different anime series, these appear disguised as the protagonist of the series. For example, when Shiro he uses the Scoopdog of ''Votoms'', he appears disguised as Chirico Cuvie. When he uses Dunbine, he appears disguised in Sho Zama's combat suit, and vice-versa.

For the World Simulation Tournament, the Biochip Plamo Controller (BCPC) is used. The BCPC is housed in a huge facility called the ‘Plamo Simulation Center’. It seems to be an extension of the standard simulation, but with an additional biochip which contains the player’s biodata. To win the battle, the biochip which will be hidden in the plamo must be destroyed. In this system, psychic power is used to channel the player’s spiritual energy to control the plamo.

The story of the Manga and the idea of Plamo Battles were concepts specially designed to arouse the interest of the readers for the hobby of Plastic models. In the manga, the characters appear buying plastic models of Gundam Series and from other famous anime series, TV series and feature films, as well as models of airplanes tanks and other models of vehicles to use them in the simulation.

Apart from this, the characters can be seen using branded products from companies dedicated to the Plastic model industry and numerous references to famous companies, products and people related to this hobby.

The success of ''Plamo Kyoshiro'' marked a trend at the time of its publication and several publishers wanted to have a [[manga]] on battles of plastic models. [[Coro Coro Comic]] (the rival and competitor of Comic Bom Bom) launched a few similar-themed [[manga]] such as ''[[Plamo Tensai Esper Taro]]'', ''[[3D Koshien Plamo Daisaku]]'', ''[[Majin Eiyuuden Wataru]]'' and ''[[Majin Kaihatsu Daisakusen]]''. ''[[Hobby Boy Hitto-kun]]'' was another [[manga]] that was published in ''Terebi Magazine''2 (a sister magazine of ''Comic Bom Bom'' ). It was not a new [[manga]], but a derivative of Plam Kyoshiro. The protagonist of this series is Hitto Ebara and is about his simulation battles with Kyoshiro.

''Plastic Section Manager Nishikiro'' is a small comic that was published in the magazine called '''Monthly Kacho''' from Japan Journal Publishing Inc. Unfortunately, Monthly Kacho only had three publications and was published from November 20, 2004 to January 24, 2005. The magazine was aimed to the public of store department managers (Maybe that's why it failed)

Revision as of 02:11, January 5, 2020

Plamo-Kyoshiro (プラモ狂四郎 Puramokyōshirō?) is a 1982 manga written by Hisashi Yasui and illustrated by Koichi Yamato. It was published from August 20th, 1982 until December 17th, 1986 in Comic BomBom magazine. This was the first Gundam series that showed the idea of battling with customized Gunpla. This idea has proven popular, and has been used several times later in other productions of the franchise, such as Gundam Build FightersGundam Build Fighters Try and most recently, Gundam Build Divers.

This work is considered the very first work of the Gundam franchise set in an alternate universe, and is the first derivative of the original TV series. The manga's original designs gave rise to Mobile Suit Variations and BB Senshi.

Synopsis

Shiro Kyoda, a young man from Tamiya City and a student of the Bandai Elementary School, is a great enthusiast of plastic models and Plamo Simulation battles. His dream is to become the representative of Japan in the World Simulation Tournament and to be able to fight in the finals in the Battle of Hobby-Topia.

Plamo Simulation

Imagination

Shiro in the Simulation. The images go into his head through the simulation helmet.

In Plamo-Kyoshiro, the system of Gunpla Battles is known as Plamo Simulation.  (The term Plamo comes from PLAstic MOdel ) The battles take place through a device called the Plamo Simulation Machine.  The players put their plamos into the domes of the Machine (See the image below), sit on the seats, they enter the information of their models in the simulation console and put on a specialized helmet. They dive into the virtual battlefield on the unison exclamation of the ‘Plamo Simulation Go!’ command.

The battle is directly imaged in the players’ minds while spectators view it on screens. The damage suffered by the models in battle is replicated on the real life kits by a system of lasers and mechanical arms. if the model is destroyed in the simulation, it will be destroyed on real life. However, this configuration can be changed for training purposes. Modifications done on the kits can affect the battle, like using a different material to build the parts or adding gimmicks like springs and tasers. If the player uses high quality materials the model will have a much better performance and  resistance in the simulation. In the manga some encounters are fought with a time limit.  

There is also a system called a Judging Machine for stopping misbehaving parties during the simulation, and there is also a system that stops the opponent's machine by placing hands on the simulation screen.

The machine sets the combat battleground randomly. These range from outer space to deserts, (the old west), forests, jungles, and streets of ruined cities, suburbs, metropolitan areas and futuristic environments and even Jurassic times and other unlikely venues.  Also, the players can make dioramas and connect the dioramas to the Plamo Simulation Machine and use them as a battleground for the battles. 
Facial Expresions

Facial expresions

The presence of the players on batlle is also simulated. These are seen inside the booths of their mobile suits and also outside their models interacting with the surrounding environment. Another aspect that catches the attention is the reaction of the pilots on the models. The emotions expressed by the pilots are reflected in the eyes and faces of the models. If the pilot reacts with awe or surprise these same expressions can be seen on the models.

Players appear in the simulation wearing costumes depending on the circumstances. The players who mostly use Gundams (Shiro Kyoda) appear in the simulation wearing pilot suits (normal suit) from the Earth Federation. Those who use Zakus, Goufs or Doms appear wearing normal suits of the Principality of Zeon. Some of them appear wearing costumes out and in the simulation depending on their personal style or motif. 

When players fight using a plastic model of a different anime series, these appear disguised as the protagonist of the series. For example, when Shiro he uses the Scoopdog of Votoms, he appears disguised as Chirico Cuvie. When he uses Dunbine, he appears disguised in Sho Zama's combat suit, and vice-versa.

For the World Simulation Tournament, the Biochip Plamo Controller (BCPC) is used. The BCPC is housed in a huge facility called the ‘Plamo Simulation Center’. It seems to be an extension of the standard simulation, but with an additional biochip which contains the player’s biodata. To win the battle, the biochip which will be hidden in the plamo must be destroyed. In this system, psychic power is used to channel the player’s spiritual energy to control the plamo.

Plamo-Kyoshiro was written by Hisashi Yasui and illustrated by Koichi Yamato. In October 15, 1981, Kodansha had released the first issue of its magazine Comic Bom Bom. Mobile Suit Gundam was extremely popular at that time. Although the Gundam boom was centered at the higher age group, the fire slowly spread to the lower age group in the form of gunpla and thus it was decided to mainly publish gunpla content. At that precise moment, the publisher was planning to launch a manga adaptation of the Mobile Suit Gundam movies, but the publisher was unable to get Sunrise's authorization on time. As an alternative plan, the publisher contacted Hisashi Yasui to create a new series. That's how Plamo-Kyoshiro was born .

In 1979 was released Mobile Suit Gundam , the first series of the Gundam franchise. In 1980 The toy company Bandai began to penetrate for the first time on the sale of plastic models , a hobby quite widespread in the world, but hardly known in Japan at that time. To publicize this new product, Bandai sponsored events and specialized magazines (SF Plamo Magazine, Hobby Japan Magazine) in the hobby of Plastic models along with other advertising techniques. The Plamo-Kyoshiro manga was created as a tool to publicize the plastic models that Bandai was launching at the time.

Original The stream based

from left to right: Katsumi Meijin Kawaguchi, Masahiro Oda, and Masaya Takahashi

The story of the Manga and the idea of Plamo Battles were concepts specially designed to arouse the interest of the readers for the hobby of Plastic models. In the manga, the characters appear buying plastic models of Gundam Series and from other famous anime series, TV series and feature films, as well as models of airplanes tanks and other models of vehicles to use them in the simulation. In addition, the characters appear customizing and creating their own original models of  Vehicles and Robots. Apart from this, the characters can be seen using branded products from companies dedicated to the Plastic model industry and numerous references to famous companies, products and people related to this hobby.

The producers of the comic also gave the opportunity to real people to appear caricatured in the manga. editors of modeling magazines, illustrators of hobby magazines, prominent employees of model making companies and young practitioners of this pastime also appeared caricatured in the comic.

Here we have another example to enrich the reader:

The Pictures Above belong to the book プラモテクニック教室 狂四郎VS小田雅弘 講談社ポケット百科 (Lit.: Plastic Tekniks Classroom Kyoshiro VS vs Oda Masahiro Kodansha Pocket Encyclopedia. In the first picture we can see Shiro hanging on the left arm of a caricatured masahiro oda. in the second pag,e we can see Shiro And Masahiro, Shiro carriying models and a real photo of masahiro with part of his background info..

Throughout the manga they appear teaching Shiro how to build the models, what materials to use and what techniques to apply in the construction of them. These explanations are accompanied by very detailed illustrations so that readers could learn implicitly how to assemble the models.

The manga, besides showing implicit tutorials, there were also magazines like SF Plamo Magazine and (images above) that also had tutorials. In the images above you can see Kazuzo Ozawa caricatured explaining how to build models and images of Shiro Kyoda.

Impact of This Work

  • Manga

Coro Coro Comic (the rival and competitor of Comic Bom Bom) launched a few similar-themed manga such as Plamo Tensai Esper Taro, 3D Koshien Plamo Daisaku, Majin Eiyuuden Wataru and Majin Kaihatsu Daisakusen. Hobby Boy Hitto-kun was another manga that was published in Terebi Magazine2 (a sister magazine of Comic Bom Bom ). It was not a new manga, but a derivative of Plam Kyoshiro. The protagonist of this series is Hitto Ebara and is about his simulation battles with Kyoshiro.

  • Plastic Section Manager Nishikiro

Plastic Section Manager Nishikiro is a small comic that was published in the magazine called Monthly Kacho from Japan Journal Publishing Inc. Unfortunately, Monthly Kacho only had three publications and was published from November 20, 2004 to January 24, 2005. The magazine was aimed to the public of store department managers (Maybe that's why it failed)

Kinshiro Kaburagi (The Protagonist) is a section manager who works for a trading company, whose work is not good enough. At home,he feels like a regretful father who only sleeps on holidays. One day, he saw his son building an SD Gundam for a gunpla event. Kinshiro was a great builder of Gundam Models in his childhood. he decided to show his old Gundam to his son. His son was very happy. Nikishiro was able to get the respect of his son for him and his Gunpla.

After that, Nishikiro attended with his son's Gunpla event. After this, Nikishiro contacted an old friend who works as a manager of a gumpla section. Nishikiro, inspired by the latest gunpla situations, finally enters the world of gunpla again that had been sealed since he was a Boy.
