1. Author's Note
Hello there! Welcome to my MB ReAct: Final Tuned Akiha Character Guide! 
In this guide, I'll show some of her moves and strategies listed here 
so sit back, relax, make yourselves comfortable and enjoy!

2. Introduction to Tohno, Akiha

According to Kadsuki's Blue Glass Moon site:

Younger sister of Shiki, Akiha is the Tohno Mansion's new head after 
the death of their father, Tohno Makihisa. She acts and talks as a 
noble lady but sometimes, she is very short-tempered. She was trained 
to be a perfect woman during her childhood so she acts with grace and 
nobility. Kohaku is Akiha's loyal maid. To her, she thinks of Kohaku as 
a good friend, not as a low class servant.
Oh, an important Note: Akiha is insecure with her flat chest, mention 
it and consider yourself dead. XD

3. Basic Controls

This is how you will use the "directional pad"...

4. Summarization of Moves (Akiha)

in Namco X Capcom. Moves with an asterisk '*' means that you can 
perform it in the air and the Last Arc move, I just named it by myself.

attack in middle or crouch stance
The screen changes and she does a Koukumau Tori wo Otosu above her.

5. 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!

5a. Nanaya, Shiki
Damn, he's a total pushover! He likes to teleport and makes a surprise 
attack above and uses his sweep kick that cancels to his sword flash 
(kyou). Use Kakuyaku Momiji on him or this combo: B,B, in air A,B then 
f+C (air combo+throw) over and over.

5b. Ciel
Sempai!? Man, she's totally cheap and tends to use her Kouken moves (in 
air also) not only that, she also uses her Dainana Seiten to finish the 
job out of you. Perform a combo or Kakuyaku Momiji and always defend 
when she use her Kouken moves.

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

5c. 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 combo listed above over and over. Tori wo Otosu or Kemono wo 
Kougasu is also effective on her.

5d. 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 or if you're feeling 
confident, slap her with the Sekishuu Origami (Heat Mode) and she's 

6. The Seiyuu behind her?
Akiha's seiyuu is none othe than hitomi! I'll also list her other 
characters she took part.

Inu Yasha
OP2 Theme Song Performance


Bakuten Shoot Beyblade
