3a. Explanation of Moves

Etherlight Air- f,d,df+A,B or C
Shion does an uppercut with the use of her Etherlight. Reminds me of
KOF Kyo Kusanagi's Oniyaki.
                Combo: A- 2 Hits
                       B- 7 Hits
                       C- 8 Hits

Etherlight Ground- d,db,b+A,B or C
Shion ensnares her opponent's leg then trips them down. After the last
hit of C version, you can combo/combo cancel it.
                Combo: C- 4 Hits

Slide Air- In air, d,db,b+A,B or C
Shion dives down then she will do a somersault throw when she grabs the
opponent. During the C version, tap f or b.
                Combo: C- 6 Hits

Cutting Sink- b,d,db+A,B or C
In the A version, she will do a dash crouch. In the B version, she will
do an arc kick that juggles the opponent in the air. In the C version,
she will an arc kick at the air.
                Combo: B- 2 Hits
                       C- 4 Hits

Ikaku Shageki- d,df,f+A,B or C
Shion fires her handgun at the ground.
                Combo: B- 3 Hits
                       C- 5 Hits

Reload- d,d+D
Shion reloads her handgun. Her handgun contains 13 rounds and when all
of her bullets are used up, she will also automatically reload it but
it starts out slow.

Black Barrel Replica- d,db,d,df,f+C
Heat Mode: Shion flips a bullet then fires it vertically. Tap the
buttons for multiple hits.
Blood Heat Mode: Shion runs, does a launcher and flips a bullet then
fires it vertically. Tap the buttons for multiple hits.
                Combo: A- 11 Hits
                       B- 11 Hits
                       C- 16 Hits (17 if lucky)

Black Barrel Replica: Obelisk- During Blood Heat Mode, parry opponent's
attack in middle or crouch stance
Shion crouches down, aims her handgun then fires it horizontally and
the opponent slams in the corner. Can you say KOS-MOS' X-BUSTER? XD
                Combo: 11 Hits+Wallslam

4. Arcade Mode Strategies
In this mode, there are 4 (2 sub-boss, 2 main boss if you don't lose a
battle) bosses and this was tested on Normal Difficulty. Well, I'll
list 'em down!

4a. Yumizuka, Satsuki
She loves to use her throws as her first attack (if you get close to
her) but the deadly part is that she can dish out some heavy damage by
performing a combo (or worse, her wind-up punch can super combo cancel
to her strong version of wind-up punch!). Her disadvantage is that she
always pulls out her throw moves, which slows her down. The simple way
to do is this: try a combo of A,B,df+B,Etherlight Air or
A,B,d+B,df+B,Etherlight Air (it may not work sometimes). If not, try
pulling out Etherlight Air or Ikaku Shageki and a little luck would be
your best bet.

4b. Tohno, Shiki
He's a total idiot to deal with but don't underestimate him! He will
combo you until he uses his super move that sends you flying in the
corner. Get close to him and perform an A,B,d+B,df+B,in air A,B,f+C
then pull out a combo then Etherlight (Kyou) to knock him down.

If you didn't lose a battle once, you will encounter the last 2 bosses.

4c. Shiroi Ren
Size DOES matter......anyways, the annoying part is she likes to crouch
(that turns her into a cat) and she will do a A combo (sometimes she
will cancel it to Fleur Freeze). The cheap way is to get close to her
and use Etherlight Air over and over. Slide Air A version works well on

4d. Aozaki, Aoko
Two words on her: TOO CHEAP!! If you try to avoid her, start defending
now because she will abuse her "Soul Strike" moves (I like calling it
Soul Strike) that will either bounce on the ground or richochet in the
screen so get close to her and perform a combo then Etherlight Air or
if you're feeling confident, slap her with the Black Barrel Replica
(Blood Heat) and she's done!

5. The Seiyuu behind her?
Shion's seiyuu is none other than Natsuki Rio! I'll also list her other
characters she took part.
