Overview[edit]

Amane is a young man in a pink kimono and scarf who travels around to gather a troupe of young and handsome men. He is seeking to add Carl to his traveling troupe.

Drive: Spiral[edit]

His Drive attacks turn his cloth into a drill, with which he can use to attack his opponent.

  • There are a total of 3 levels of Spiral Gauge. Gauge increases upon using D attacks and decreases over time. Drill attacks last longer and do more damage with higher level. Gauge builds even on whiffed D attacks.
  • Drill can overheat if charged for too long. When overheated, D moves and D specials cannot be used.
  • Each attack will deal more hits if the button is held down, with each hit contributing to the Spiral Gauge. Can stop holding moves at any time.
  • Level 3 D moves do a very high amount of chip damage on block.

Overdrive: Cyclone[edit]

  • Spiral Gauge continues to rapidly rise to level 3 and then stops. (Does not immediately become level 3 on activation).
  • Amane's Distortion Drives become enhanced, gaining extra hits and dealing more damage.
  • 6D does more hits, but gains drill gauge slower, allowing it to deal more damage for longer without overheating the drill.

Strengths/Weaknesses[edit]

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Great attack range with C and D normals
  • Strong and diverse pressure with normals, Zettou, and Ginga
  • Unpredictable air mobility with Zettou hops and j.2B
  • Strong antiairs: solid 6A, long-range 5C and 6C, unblockable Gekiren
  • Amazing chip damage and barrier draining on Level 3 Drill
  • Below-average health
  • Long-range moves have huge recoveries on whiff
  • Slow movement speed overall, in spite of the various movement options
  • Lacking mixup options; literally only one overhead (j.A)
  • Lack of meterless defensive options
  • Requires Level 3 Drill for full damage/pressure potential, but care must be taken not to overheat the drill.


Normal Moves[edit]

Basically a shorter ranged version of 5C that only hits once. Usable in grounded combos and as a poke with less of the unsafe deadzone 5C has. Also a slightly better starter than 5C.

Helpful to adjust yourself during airborne combos.


j.B[edit]

Perplexingly not an overhead.
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv Attribute
280*3 All 14 2,2,3 20 - H
  • Can beat rolls by using Zettou > j.B after Gekiren, Gosei, Seijyuu
  • Amane's own hurtbox includes the sash, leading to some strange counterhits.

Offers the best balance of covering space versus ease of use. You want to use this move a lot


j.2B[edit]
j.2B

  • Frame advantage calculated off shortest jump possible
  • Can be used to beat rolls on knockdowns in corner
  • Will cause ground bounce on hit
  • Can be used to set up an ambiguous crossup after an IAD


j.C[edit]

  • Can be used to punish certain grounded projectiles
  • Will keep momentum on airdash, but not during Zettou
  • Launches opponent towards Amane

With the use of Zettou, this move does a good job at extending or starting pressure. Good harass with a few options and rewards afterwards.

  • Will keep momentum on airdash, but not during Zettou

Used mostly in combos as the rewards for using this at neutral are pretty low, since you can hardly hitconfirm into anything but Gosei.

  • Can be used to beat anti-airs as there is no hurtbox nearby the hitbox
  • Will keep momentum on airdash, but not during Zettou
  • Launches opponent towards you


Drive Moves[edit]

Notes
  • 1 gauge has total 6000 points.
  • Gauge depletes at 10 points per frame in all situations except while Amane is in hitstop or hits opponent with a drive move.
  • Gauge overheats if gauge exceeds level 3.
  • During overheat, gauge depletes at 50 points per frame and resets to level 1 at the end. (Always needs 120F to reset)
  • During overheat, cannot use Hariken, Seijyuuren Soukyaku, or Goukaira Senrenpa.
  • For normal drives, adds gauge from just before active frames start (simultaneous for 6D) until just before active frames end.
  • Gauge depletion cut in half from just before active frames end until 66F after (negligible in OD).
  • While in OD, restores gauge to level 3 by 100 points per frame, while at level 3 consumption rate changes to 30 points per frame.

Lv3 120*7 All 15 9~32 25 -5 B
  • Add more hits by holding button

5D can be used to create distance when used midscreen. It also does good corner pressure considering frame advantage + placement. Will lead to a standing reset when used as a combo. Either Command dash in, try to hit them with a Hariken (they can jump out of this one if not counter hit) or prevent their movement with C moves.

Lv3 140*7 All 13 9~32 28 -8 B
  • Head attribute invul from 12F until the end of active frames
  • Add more hits by holding button

Due to slow startup, head invulnerability that kicks in way to late, no ability to cancel into anything when blocked but RC and non beneficial frame advantage, you don't really want to use this reliably anywhere else than combos.


6D[edit]
6D
BBCP Amane 6D.png

  • Lv1: 10% chip damage (25*N). Lv2: 30% chip damage (75*N). Lv3: 50% chip damage (125*N)
  • Lv3: 5% minimum damage (12*N).
  • Add more hits by holding button.
  • Lv1, Lv2: Adds 200 (100*3, 200*N in OD) gauge per hit or attack on whiff.
  • Lv3: Adds 200 (70 in OD) gauge per hit or attack on whiff.

Your best way to raise your drill level. Very few ways to combo into it. Hariken drill from Counter Hit 5D, Gosei RC or Seijyuu RC is the only reliable way to do it. Instead, use this during resets. Many scenarios will force the opponent to tech into it or to take a blue beat combo as it beats rolls and late tech. While not an actual combo, you'll still obtain the drill level increase. Be wary though, certain matchups have tools to deal with these setups. Projectile invulnerable moves, long distance backdashes and some reversal moves can escape it and sometimes even punish you for it.

  • Add more hits by holding button

This move is godlike as you can jump then do it right away and it'll connect on crouching opponents. You can nearly let it active up until you land. Builds good drill meter while still applying pressure as you'll stay in. Otherwise, this is the least damaging drive normal that Amane has. Not super rewarding in combos compared to his other D moves. Combined with Zettou and high drill level, it can be used for effective chipp strings like 5D > 236A > j.D > j.236A > j.D, though remember to mix it up with frame traps (like 5D > delay 214C) to avoid abare.

  • Add more hits by holding button

Much like 2D, this move has no uses in neutral game and is really a combo tool. This the most damaging drive normal he has. Will cause a wallbounce that you can combo afterwards on level 3.

  • Opponent will do a ground bounce followed by a wallbounce and should come back where Amane will land on the ground.

Follow-up combo route depends on your throw height (ie. the height after wallbounce), but usually allows basic combos with 6A (JC) stuff, or more advanced 5B > 5C > 6C(1) stuff for better damage.

Mostly used in combos since you don't get a big combo reward for hitting a Guard-Crushed standing opponent. Furthermore, it doesn't have much horizontal reach, which is bad because all your other normals generate a lot of pushblock.

  • Gauge value at level 3 in OD is 30 points per frame

Depending on the input pressed while in the stance he'll place the drill at different distances on the screen; A = Close range, B = Mid range, C = Far range, and D cancels the stance.

The hand will spawn at a fixed distance from Amane unless in the corner. The hand will never be off screen, so the range might change to accommodate this rule. Very useful for call outs if your opponent is jumping. Can be Rapid Canceled and combo'd afterwards into 2C for big damage.

As this move is minus 7 on block, you really want to be using this in combos. It'll most likely be used to end standing combos in an other way than using 5D. Instead, this will send the opponent full screen. Can be rapid cancel into 5C for a modest combo extension depending on the starter used.

Mostly used as a knockdown from air combos as it's unsafe otherwise. Can be rapid canceled into 2C for a combo extension. If you have 50 meter, you might also want to use it as it's really fast and will be either safe or give you a combo.

A "command jump" that gives Amane the much needed additional mobility.

  • Input controls the hop's direction (236 = forward, 214 = back) and travel distance (A = short, B = long)
  • Can be done once on the ground and once in the air; Zettou uses are restored after landing (eg. whiffing a j.2B)
  • Using Zettou does not consume universal air movement options; combine with double jump or airdash for extra mobility
  • Cancels into all jump normals and specials (eg. does not directly cancel into double jump, airdash, or block) after a certain amount of time depending on which versions is used:
    • Ground A versions: 14F onwards
    • Ground B versions: 16F onwards
    • All Aerial versions: 7F onwards

Projectile that travels on ground level.

  • Short range, big pushback on block, average overall recovery
  • Launches opponent in air on hit with lots of untech time

Ginga is a new addition that helps Amane's game on all areas:

  • In combos it gives an easy launch in corner for a great variety of routes
  • In okizeme it gives a frame advantage on block or launches the opponent for a combo if they roll, quick tech, or do not tech
  • In pressure it works as a safe frametrap ender with a big counterhit that combos into C normals

  • 1st hit forces opponent into standing on hit
  • On hit, only possible to Rapid Cancel last attack
  • Gauge immediately overheats after second attack on hit (not on block)

Only invincible reversal available. If blocked, it's obviously punishable. If whiffed (i.e. opponent jumped over it), Amane will travel such a long distance that the best way to punish it would have been to anticipate it.

Depending on the drill level and resources available, different followups are possible.

Level 1

  • Only followup possible is by using Rapid Cancel
  • Possible to do Seijyuu > RC > 6D

Level 2

  • Followup with 3C

Amane attacks the opponent with his cloth. On hit, he kicks the opponent upwards and launches them, then wraps and slams them down. Puts Amane in Active Flow if he hasn't already been in it already. Has full invul but is slightly unsafe on block and cannot be rapid-cancelled.
