    [P4AU] Yu Narukami - Gameplay Discussion

    Thank you! I really like Narukami and it's fun to play as him. Pretty much the only reason I still open the game time to time. Second question to anyone. Is there a section where I can see the Shadow Version of Yu? I am curious to the differences. I'll just look around the boards.

    [P4AU] Yu Narukami - Gameplay Discussion

    Hello! I hope it is okay for me to post this in this thread. It is to my understanding that P4AU will be for both PS and Xbox consoles. I would like to pick it up, I still have my copy of P4A which I play time to time but I am not very good. Is P4A Narukami still a good base in preparation for P4AU Yu? Or has he changed too much to get a good grasp of the character in AU?

    [P4A] Yu Narukami - Combo Thread

    For the AoA is it a good starter combos? Obviously it allows you to perform one. But the one I am currently trying to get down is: Starter->j.B->j.B->j.C->214A The other option I have tried practicing is a corner combo: 214B->2B->j.B->j.B->j.C->214A Because when I try to use AoA as a starter, the j.C doesn't seem to come out after the second j.B. So what starter should I switch with?

    How does one utilize his divekick? Is it just a gimmick? I know I read here that it destroys Naoto's traps...but what other use is there for it? So far I have found it catching people off guard to get a counterhit into an easy combo. Otherwise it comes out too slow for anything I can think of. It is kinda interesting to use it control Yu's air movement though.

    [CSE] Hakumen Q & A: New players check here first

    When faced with the option to either normal air grab someone or Hotaru them which one would you choose and why? I know Hotaru is probably the better the option, but I'm curious does his air grab allow for anything afterwards? What are his tick throws? I know 5A works at most 2As leading to the throw, then there is either j.B if done low enough or sometimes cross up j.B. Is there anything else I should be aware of?

    Does his air throw allow for Oki setups afterward or does the opponent recover too fast?

    [CSE] Hakumen Combo Thread

    So I'm back yay! I've been practicing what I believe a basic corner combo. However I keep mistiming it for whatever reason. It goes as follows 5C->236B->2C->jc 5B->j.2A->Air Dash->j.2A->j.5C->5C->2C I can land it sometimes but where I feel I mess up is the 2C, when I should I hit that? Because when I jump into the air the j.B to j.2A the j.2A will either whiff or hit but the characters falls to the ground fast than I connect the second one. Another result is that I get the second j.2A but the character is still too low for the j.5C to hit. What am I doing wrong?

    How do you approach in general? Usually when I do approach I walk and air 214A/B that is something you want to avoid. While it sometimes on players who are charging moves i.e. Mitsuru, good players will IB your move and punish heavily especially if you gamble using 214B for a FC/CH. Yu has an air dash, use it. Are you doing IAD A+C to air turn and cross up the opponent when you oki? Do so to add to your oki game. You have the basics from what I can read and that is wonderful! You sir have done what I am hoping to one day accomplish so don't worry you're already well on your way to see progress. "Getting in" varies on the character so hit up the match up thread! Feel free to add your knowledge and help everyone out. Do you have trouble with someone? A good tip is to download your opponent learn their pattern to expand your damager potential. If you feel yourself lacking in some aspect, a tip I received from good players is to use YouTube and upload your gameplays. Finding a way to do so will help the better players here tell you specific tips you might find very helpful. Watch the videos posted in the video to see what other players do, noted players to watch here are Shinsyn, Kikuichimonji, Darkpath and VR-Raiden. They have been very helpful to me and are very knowledgeable about the character.

    [P4A] Yu Narukami vs Akihiko Sandada

    I'm not the best authority but try to stay midrange while watching out for his Kill Rush especially 236AB. 5B is your friend, I'm not sure if it beats Kill Rush but I have found that 5B does stop his Corkscrew attack. Should they get in and initiate Akihiko's combos watch what they use as an ender if you block. They generally go for the sweep, but some go for the All Out Attack to catch you off guard as well as take to the air mashing A. When you encounter someone (the few that do this I haven't met many) that uses his D attack to pull you, use Swift Strike as it is enhanced by the pull and can catch them off guard, I doubt it would work continuously so use it when you think they least expect it. Swift Strike should also low profile his Corkscrew attack as well otherwise I'm just getting lucky with timing. DO NOT AIR APPROACH AN AKIHIKO WHO USES HIS C ATTACK IN AIR! It keeps you close enough for the player to get in and hurts a lot. If you expect it though Yu's C attack should beat it. An earlier tip I believe from darkpath or Shinsyn is to use 236C to force the player you are facing into the air, while I am hesitant to use it against Akihiko for that annoying j.C attack, it nullifies Akihiko's better ground approach. If they try to use assault drive you can 2B them. If they are in Awakening do not use Ziodyne if you are not sure that it will, it is free punish for Akihiko's Maziodyne. Do not jump in not only that Akihiko can use his C attack but his uppercut is just too good. Watch what your opponent does and try understand their gameplan, Akihiko needs to get and I have found opponents try to stick to specific approaches punish them for it. Again I am not the best authority but I hope this helps! Side Note: Should you find yourself in the air, you can use Big Gamble to catch Akihiko using air C. Watch out for how much blue health you have, one blink and it will be gone.

    [CSE] Hakumen Q & A: New players check here first

    I am a very impatient person, how did you guys become patient playing Hakumen. I feel it is a necessary skill to have, and what I would like to know is how did you guys develop it? mAc Chaos do you find yourself forcing yourself to be patient even when you RTSD?

    [CSE] Hakumen Q & A: New players check here first

    Just a warning, you guys are opening a pandoras box. I have literally zero depth when it comes to knowledge and play Hakumen because of how I pick all my character in any fighting game. He looks badass, and I like samurai. I am very new to the actual fighting game scene with my experience consisting of watching streams and rushing into online to learn how to play. Evident by my forum posts on the matchup threads. I really do want BlazBlue to be my first actual fighting game I sink my hours into . My thirst for knowledge and desire to be better are outmatched only my lack of knowledge and "srub" tactics when it comes to play. If you guys are okay with all this then I would like to message. I just don't feel that I want to bombard someone with questions that they have to spend time on answering. Just let me know what I should do, and I'm good to go!
