Technical and Historical Notes

 

The ML-98 Celkee H10 is an underwater construction labor produced by Hishii Heavy Industries. The airtight Frogman is capable of working underwater at depths of up to 70 meters. The Celkee is equipped with an air tank to sustain its pilot, but the air tank isn't as large as the one used by another underwater labor, the M135 Frogman. In the coastal town of Shikura, several fisherman conspire to increase tourism to boost the town's economy by staging appearances from a plesiosaur named "Plessie." This deception is accomplished by using two labors: a Celkee is fitted with coverings to act as Plessie's "head," while a SOV-9900S Seadog is fitted with coverings to serve as the "fins." After the deception is discovered by the Tokyo police's SV2 labor unit, the town's tourism rush immediately dissipates.
