Overview[edit]
Overview

Anji is an all-around character whose main mechanic is his autoguard, which allows him to block during portions of some of his attacks. He can work at close to mid range with varying degrees of effectiveness. His tools, while each strong in specific situations, don't fit any "jack of all trades scenarios", making Anji tricky both to play and to deal with.

Anji has an extensive mixup game with a variety of lows, overheads, and throws which can break open opponents who don't know what to do. His most unique tools include Fuujin, Autoguard, Late Cancelling, and 3S Cancel, all explained below. Unaware opponents can be run over by him quite soundly, while experienced foes will force Anji to mix up which autoguard he uses with his other tools to greater effect.

Playstyle
GGACR Anji Mito Icon.png Anji Mito is an all around character whose game is centered on his autoguard and Fuujin.
Pros Cons
  • Fuujin: Has access to an invincible rekka starter that covers lots of horizontal space, and leads to damage and setplay on hit and mixups on block.
  • Potent okizeme: When given a butterfly setup, Anji gets access to strong mixup and an unblockable setup with meter.
  • Tricky mixup tools: 3P, Fuujin followups, and an anti-air grab give Anji some good tools for opening up targets.
  • Guard points: Several normals allow Anji to proceed unimpeded through abare attempts, and cancel his blocks into even stronger options.
  • Strong aerial mobility: Air stalls, ON, and a unique super jump give Anji some good aerial tools.
  • High guts rating: Despite an average defense modifier, his guts level lets Anji survive longer than expected.
  • Reliant on Fuujin: Matchups where Anji has to use Fuujin sparingly due to traps or attacks with long active frames are tough.
  • Easily gone around: Many moves can be easily reversal'd, low profiled, or avoided and punished hard.
  • Shut down by counters to Butterfly Oki: Reversals and characters with means around it can put Anji in a struggle.
  • No reliable reversals: None of Anji's options besides DAA can reliably get him out of pressure.
  • Very specialized: Anji has a wider moveset than normal, and each move is necessary for specific situations.
Fuujin
Fuujin is a rekka starter with generous 12f strike invul on startup that leads to a mixup situation on block and potentially nets a combo on hit. This move is used in all aspects of Anji's game--defense, offense, neutral, combos, you name it. Keep in mind that the back end of its startup frames are completely vulnerable, making it weak against moves with long active frames and disjointed projectiles that linger on the screen.
Autoguard
Several of Anji's moves have a property where they will automatically block moves that make contact, depending on the type of move: Low Autoguard will only block lows, and High Autoguard will block mids and highs. He can cancel his move into one of four Autoguard Followups if he blocks something during autoguard, and these are very fast and in some cases are guaranteed to connect.
Gatlings
Anji's unique Gatling options and array of command normals give him freeform blockstrings and unique combo options.
  • Late Cancel - Anji's normals have a property in which they can all be cancelled at any point during their active and recovery frames into a normal or special move as long as they made contact, giving Anji the ability to turn any gatling string into a Frame Trap. Example link, turn on the CC for explanation
  • 3S Cancel - 3S is a particular normal that can be cancelled during frames 8-10 of its startup into 5S or 5H, allowing for very unique blockstrings and cancels that other characters cannot perform. Example Link
  • Other options - Anji has a large number of command normals, gatlings, and moves with frame advantage. This on top of his other unique options and ability to gatling into autoguard moves can make his blockstrings unpredictable, and allow him to crank the guard gauge quickly.

Fast poke that covers good range without extending Anji's hurtbox while also being good combo filler.

  • Cranks the gaurd bar well
  • Has good gatling options such as 3P, 2S, and 3S

Note: Anji does not have a f.S. 5S will activate at any range. However, 5S will automatically gatling into 6S if S is pressed again on contact.

24 Mid 18 4 16 -1 1~21F Above Knees

[edit]

Great all around anti air, especially against airdashes.

  • Anji leans back durring the animation allowing him dodge certain things.
  • Has a great disjoint like most 6P's
  • Can go into 236H on normal hit or chain into 5H before 236H for extra damage, but can be inconsistent depending on range.
  • Good for frame traps.

Above knees invincible 1~21F (Anji's back can be hit as he stands 18F onwards). Staggers opponent on ground CH (Max 49F). Hitstun 21F. Initial prorate 90%.

28 Mid 11 6 18 -10 1~7F Guard High

[edit]

A fast frame trap with early autoguard frames.

  • Has autoguard on FRAME 1, meaning instant access to Anji's autoguard moves.
  • Has no gatlings besides 3P and can only be cancelled by RC or its FRC while also being -10 on block making it a potentially very unsafe move to throw out.
    • Despite that its FRC leads to good combos or the ability to continue your pressure.

Staggers opponent on ground CH (max 37F). FRC timing 11~12F.

Autoguard: High autoguard 1~7F. See notes *1 here.

34 Mid 13 4 17 -7 7~12F Guard High

[edit]

An extremely far poke covering a large portion of the screen in front of Anji.

  • Can catch people jumping in or out, trying to approach, trying to poke, and potentially airdashing while still having a good autoguard just in case.
    • Unfortunately, 6S's hitbox is deceptive and only hits on the ends of the fans. This makes using 6S up close a risky option.
  • Has many gatling options.

Note: Anji does not have a f.S. 5S will activate at any range. However, 5S will automatically gatling into 6S if S is pressed again on contact.

28 Mid 28 12 10 +1 1~27F Guard Low

[edit]

3S is an autoguard machine, and also is Level 6 on block.

  • One of Anji's few low autoguard and lasts up until the active frames start, on a move with a very long start up.
  • Has many ways to gatling into.
  • Allows Anji to use 3S cancel, a very strong technique for blockstrings and combos.
  • Is also +1 on block
  • Oddly is jump cancelable.

Cancelable into 5S or 5H 6~8F. Blockstun 22F.

4~20F Throw

[edit]

6H used to be an iconic multi-hitting attack now nerfed to a single hit, but is still a powerful tool with a variety of uses.

  • Can work as a good frame trap and goes into 236H on counterhit.
  • Using its FRC point allows for a strike throw mix up.
  • Has high autoguard.
  • Is throw invincible for a portion.
  • Has many ways to gatling into.

Initial prorate 80%. Untechable for 19F. Throw invincible 4~20F. FRC timing 17~20F.

[edit]

2S is a great low poke and mixup option.

  • While it has limited gatlings 2S makes up for that by gatling into 3S allow 3S cancels.
  • Out of its limited gatlings it can go into 5H on counter hit and also works during butterfly oki, making it a strong tool to get into Anji's strongest combo options.
  • Can go under alot of things.
  • Has no proration.

Low profile 11~13F, 21~23F.

[edit]

j.D is a powerful button with a few uses.

  • Can stop Anji's aerial momentum.
  • Can be used as a good air to air.
  • A pretty decent combo ender, especially in the corner where Anji can go into j.214P for a knockdown.
  • Blows back opponent on hit.

Initial prorate 90%. Upper body invincible 1~11F, 22F onward. Blows back opponent on hit (untechable for 30F). Wallsticks opponent on CH (untechable for 84F, wallstick for 30F). Can be canceled into any jump attack except another j.D 23F onwards.

[edit]

Second only to Fuujin in its importance to Anji's game: Shitsu launches a slow moving Butterfly projectile which is active for about 2/3rds of the screen. On contact, it will float up, transform into a hawk, and drop down on the opponent for three hits. Works predominantly as an Oki tool, forcing players to block, DAA, or attempt a reversal on wakeup. This allows Anji to run in and go for his myriad of mixup options, from overheads, double lows, High > Low, etc. There is a large gap between the first and the following hits, meaning that you'll want to time Anji's other attacks to hit between so that the opponent doesn't get to play while you're applying pressure.

Butterfly has some uses in neutral, but it's best used from far away or while they're in the middle of something to simply force the opponent to deal with it. It's actually fairly easy to SB the followup hits, so some players might be ballsy and SB to chicken block to avoid any mixup you'd go for if you don't force them to sit down between the first hit and transformation.

Projectile disappears immediately if Anji gets hit. Falling butterfly has Chip damage x2. Falling butterfly: Startup of 1F after original projectile hits or is blocked, or 20F after nullifying a projectile.

S 30 Mid 15 3 27 -16 -
H 46 Mid 20 3 27 -16 1~12F Strike

[edit]

When you think of Anji, you probably think of Fuujin. Fuujin is Anji's prime move, leading to damage, bridging combos, and has followups that can be used on hit, block, and even whiff, leading to different setups or making Fuujin safe. The S version doesn't have quite the same versatility of the H version, but it is faster and can be used on occasion against players who can predict and reversal through H Fuujin.

Slides opponent on air hit (untechable for 40F, slide for 20F). Can cancel into followup attacks 28F onwards.


H Version encompasses everything that Anji is. Strike invulnerable for over half of its startup, launches and wallbounces on hit, and has all the same followups. Used by itself, it will go through quite a few things, forcing players to avoid just tossing projectiles or long range normals in your face due to the invincibility. Just throwing it out will net you quite a few rewards when it works, particularly on counter hit.

Part of what makes Fuujin so powerful is its ability to go through and tag things in a fashion that is reminiscent of a dragon punch, but coming in horizontally. The main difference is that although it lacks full invincibility until startup, the followups lead to healthy chunks of damage, build upon his mixup, and will allow Anji to play an overbearing game against opponents who don't know how to deal with it. Defining.

Initial prorate 80%. Strike invincible 1~12F. Wallbounces opponent on hit (untechable for 38F). Fully untechable on CH. Can cancel into followup attacks 33F onwards.

[edit]

A decently safe followup to fuujin

  • Can be airdashed out of making it harder to punish after it hits and allows for possible conversions.
  • Frc makes it completely safe.
  • Has a long startup making it possible to punish if the opponent is quick to react or read it, working it in with other followups is key.

Anji is airborne 4F onwards. FRC timing 6~8F. Auto Jump Install. Listed Frame Adv is for a standing opponent in the corner (Tested on Sol).

40 High 27 8 16 0 1~22F Throw
8~26F Guard High

[edit]

Slow overhead followup from Fuujin, all to setup some solid oki...or to fish for a disgusting counter hit. Even then, it's a way to transition into his autoguard moves during pressure with Fuujin in general.

  • Alot of overhead autoguard frames and is a fat Level 6 move on block; also neutral on block unless it's been Slashbacked.
  • Works well to catch opponents off-guard, but can beat out with a low.
  • Throw invincible helps to make opponents have to understand how to beat it.

Throw invincible 1~22F. Slams down and knocks down opponent on hit. Groundbounces opponent and fully untechable on CH. Listed Frame Adv is when opponent blocks standing (tested on Sol). Startup to hit a crouching opponent is 31F. Blockstun 21F.

Autoguard: High autoguard 8~26F. See notes *1 here.

Fast, good damage, knocks down, builds a ton of meter. Best against opponents who are attacking from the air. Since it flies so high during the attack, it's incredibly unsafe, but the startup will generally net you the hit unless they RC'd in expectation.

Strike invincible 1~4F. Upper body invincible 5~13F. 1st-7th hits float opponent (untechable for 20F). 8th hit blows opponent back on hit (untechable for 60F). Anji is in CH state until landing. 2nd-7th hits have hitstop 5F. Kou can only be used during the hitstop of an autoguarded move.

[edit]

P version is short range crossup overhead tool which can be a major pain for those unfamiliar with it. Works in pressure since it's advantageous by a sliver. However it can be airthrown on prediction, so let the mystery remain. Frame advantage varies with opponent's character height.

Anji is airborne 4~27F. Feet invincible 22~27F. Knocks down opponent on hit.


K version is less safe and more pronounced since Anji jumps much higher. It needs to start from much farther out in order to work as an ambiguous crossup, and is a less safe option on IB. Unlike the P version, it has an FRC which can make it safer or lead to more unexpected mixups like land to throw, airdash back to crossup, etc.

Both versions are much more rewarding on Counter Hit, and will work wonders against those scared to press buttons when their guard gauge is flashing. Used in exchange with one another and with some discretion, you'll get much out of this move.

Anji is airborne 9F onwards. Groundbounces opponent on hit (untechable for 40F). High groundbounce and fully untechable on CH. FRC timing 23~25F. Listed Frame Adv is for a standing block (tested on Sol). Auto Jump Install. Anji automatically turns to face the opponent after FRC.

Orb special. Tiger Knee'd, you gain access to a fantastic overhead which bounces on hit, and leads to damage on RC or counter hit. It will plummet on air hit as well, so if done a bit above ground it will score a knockdown. Done too low, however, and it will ground bounce high enough that the opponent can tech out.

Ground bounces opponent on hit (untechable for 60F). High groundbounce and fully untechable on CH. Anji is in CH state 1~48F. Hitstop 6F. Fastest possible TK Shin:Nishiki has startup: 17F, Frame Adv: -29F.

[edit]

Butterfly on an acid trip. After the transformation, it turns into an overhead, creating Anji's unblockable setups. These are difficult to actually perform, though, as FB Shitsu has significantly more recovery than regular Shitsu. It also travels much farther and slightly faster, though, so it can be used to create setups from much farther out than regular Butterfly.

The additional property of blowing through other projectiles is a nice bonus as well, making this a justified option to throw out in neutral despite the cost, as it will generally force the opponent to deal with it due to the increased range. Keep in mind that you'll probably want to also bait Dead Angles or reversals when they have the resources.

The falling part has Chip Damage x2. Projectile disappears instantly if Anji gets hit. Goes through other projectiles. Falling butterfly startup is 1F after hit or blocked, or 20F after nullifying a projectile.

[edit]

One of Anji's best uses of meter and better moves all around, despite not being Level 6 like its normal version. Ground bounces, OTGs, does a bunch of damage, and is your best followup to Fuujin. As a combo tool, the bounce is more than high enough to confirm into whatever you want, in many cases even another Fuujin.

This will tag people not paying attention after a blocked Fuujin, though the FB flash will usually give away your intent. However, it's almost entirely throw invincible (though the first frame generally won't matter since they'll usually be in blockstun from Fuujin). A move you'll be using a lot.

Throw invincible 2~25F. Ground bounces opponent on hit (untechable for 60F). Listed Frame Adv is for standing block (tested on Sol). Startup is 25F to hit a crouching opponent (tested on Sol).

Autoguard: High autoguard 2~20F. See notes *1 here.

12~13F Upper Body

[edit]

Just as powerful as the normal version, except that it can be airdashed out of, ignoring the awful frame disadvantage. This will net a bunch of damage, probably making it better in value than Overdrive Counter.

Strike invincible 1~11F. Upper body invincible 12~13F. 1st-7th hits float opponent (2nd hit untechable for 20F, rest for 60F). 8th hit slams down opponent and fully untechable. Anji is in CH state until landing. 2nd-7th hits have hitstop 5F. FB Kou can only be used during the hitstop of an autoguarded attack.

90 - 21 18 35+6 - 10~18F Low Profile
19~28F Strike

[edit]

Not as impressive as it looks, but it comes with a few nice bonuses. It's useful for catching people messing around at the top of the screen or stalling out, and on hit, you can use any of your air movement options immediately after it lands. The invincibility is nice too if they expect it while they're playing around in the air. You can airdash out of it instantly and continue into another combo.

The slow startup won't combo out of anything aside from 5D, which already has limits in its use as an overhead. It does have an FRC with similar utility to regular On, but spending half a bar is not worth it in most situations. A situational move, but might be good given the right chance.

10~18F low profile, 19~28F strike invincible. Knocks down opponent on hit (untechable for 120F). Anji is in crouching state during landing recovery. FRC timing 19~20F. Anji can move before landing.

7~9F Upper Body
10~10F Strike

[edit]

Tacked on damage combo ender, usually after On. It has an FRC for continuation, and the window is relatively wide, but otherwise you probably won't see or use this much. It's got some invincibility on it before and after startup, but it's not full body and it's not throw invincible, so this move isn't much of a reversal. It's an easy followup but generally is only recommended if it's going to kill.

Above chest invincible 4~6F. Upper body invincible 7~9F. Strike invincible 10F. 11th hit knocks down opponent. Anji is in CH state during move. Dizzy modifier x0. Hitstop 0F. Can pass through projectiles. Projectile appears on 10F. FRC timing 66~70F. Projectile guranteed to activate after 10F. Giant fan will activate on 53F if the 11th hit hits (not blocked). Giant fan does 50 damage, attack level 3, startup 27F, active 24F, fully untechable.

30,14x13 High/Air 18+0 10 landing+20 -11 4~20F Strike

[edit]

A super version of Kai. This overdrive stomp is unreactable after the flash, meaning that unless they were already blocking, or were in the middle of something with invincibility or a hitbox that will clash, this move will land if it makes contact. It's also a gimmicky option for getting out of things and can be used to make ambiguous crossups similar to Kai for those who preemptively block it. It's got some lengthy startup though, and even though it comes out on frame 0 after the flash, they can react to the jumping animation just like regular Kai.

It also doesn't have invincibility fully from startup, so Anji will generally want to rely more on his powerful Dead Angle over any of his overdrives to get out of pressure. A move which looks kind of good on paper and will work on occasion, but generally not the best use of meter.

Strike invincible 4~20F. Knocks down opponent on hit. Opponent cannot input anything from after super flash until the 3rd active frame. Must charge down for at least 40F to perform Tenjinashi. Listed Frame Adv is for standing block (tested on Sol). All hits outside of the 2nd hit have hitstop 0. For the follow up strikes after the knockdown (1st hit), if the opponent was ground bounced, the spin will hit them in the air, else they'll take the hits on the ground

40x4 Mid 7+0 5(16)5(12)5(20)5 75 -61 1~22F All
23~70F Strike

[edit]

Guaranteed to connect once it makes contact, assuming they're not still in the middle of something invincible. Kachoufuugetsu will come out during hitstop, simliar to Baiken's guard cancels, meaning that this will work even against moves with minimal recovery like jabs, despite its listed startup. Since it only comes out on autoguard, you'll have to predict or know that you'll autoguard something considering the time it takes to perform the motion.

This can be useful to simply land an unburstable super, or you can FRC it before the last hit to do something extended, but that's generally not worth the meter and you'll prefer to just take the knockdown.

Fully invincible 1~22F. Strike invincible 23~70F. 1st-3rd hits stagger opponent on hit (Max 65F). Opponent's inputs are frozen until the 2nd active frame of the 1st hit. 4th hit knocks down opponent. Anji is in CH state during move. Dizzy modifier x1.5. FRC timing 63~65F. Can only be performed during the hitstop of an autoguarded move, or after a normal autoguard attack hits or is blocked.
