This was the Fujitsu's Japanese language word processor equipped with personal computer capabilities. It was announced in December 1985. This machine enabled the OASYS Series of business word processors from Fujitsu to perform Japanese language data processing using "Japanese BASIC". This was a completely new multi-functional Japanese language word processor, and it had the following features.
(1) It was equipped with a full-range of document creation capabilities, inherited from the OASYS 100 Series.
(2) It was equipped with "Japanese BASIC" for programming in Japanese (this BASIC operated under OASYS Japanese MS-DOS and OASYS Japanese CP/M-86).
(3) It had multi-functionality (optional) which greatly expanded the world of word processing.
(Multiplan spreadsheet software, and Word Star English word processing software etc.)
This machine became the foundation for the Fujitsu's FM R Series of personal computers.
