So, this might be a little convoluted, but fuck it, I have a small theory about the possibility of canon story mode finally making it to the game. So, in case anyone doesn't know, the devs stated before that they would need the characters Black Dahlia, Marie (yeah, the boss) and Umbrella to make it into the game for them to be able to include the actual canon story of Skullgirls, because those characters were fundamental. They released Annie, likely because she was popular in their polls for which characters to include in the game, BUT, it turns out that, according to the stats they released, Annie was actually matched with another character in popularity: Minette, the fish girl from Ms. Fortune's story.
If you look at the poll results, you'll see that Minette actually beat Annie for the most part, but while Minette is a quite minor character, Annie is a surprisingly big deal in Skullgirls' universe. It seems for me that the devs picked Annie because she was a safe enough pick, while still being lore relevant, unlike Minette. We know that they're going to measure Annie's success to decide if they're gonna make more new characters or not, so, if they picked Annie for story importance, its likely that their next characters will also be, so Black Dahlia, Marie and Umbrella actually have a chance to be added for a canon story mode, which would be a pretty big update. Black Dahlia and Marie did pretty well in the polls and while Umbrella wasn't that great, if she was released with the canon story, that wouldn't be too much of an issue.
Re: Dawn's Moveset Idea Megathread (Suggestions Appreciated!)
Anime fans, apologies for being the bearer of bad news. Popular websites, "KissAnime and KissManga" have been taken down permanently. In a June 2020 report by Kyodo News, it was reported that the Japanese parliament had endorsed a revised anti-online piracy law for copyright control, banning illicit downloading of manga, magazines, and academic texts, in addition to music and videos that were already covered by the existing legislation. According to the report, the law also regulates “leech websites” that facilitates users with hyperlinks to download pirated materials. The ban on illegal downloading will take effect on January 1 next year, while restrictions on leech sites will come into effect on October 1, as per the story.
I think I've only used the site once or twice just to watch My-Hime.
Good to see SkullGirls' still getting support after what they've done to add the other new faces. I really liked how they did Eliza, Beowulf and Big Band since I had used those 3 a lot. I've love to see a playable version of Marie in the future.
Re: [BBCF2] Hibiki Kohaku (Latest version 07/21/20) Astral now has 4:3 support
Her play style is still the same in BBTAG with a few additional moves like 5C and her new distortion. Some of her moves were adjusted so it's more reliable in 1vs1. Feedback and suggestion are welcome.
Here's a bit of feedback I've got: 1. Back Ashura Senku can be cancelled out of before he moves back which can be annoying when trying to dash away. Forward Senku doesn't have this. 2. Zugaihasatsu can be chained infinitely if mashed properly because of the lack of knockback and frame advantage. (Edit: Vid: https://streamable.com/mhcg1k) 3. Shoryuken should be F, D, DF instead of F, D, DF, F. 4. I may suggest swapping the Hadoken and Shoryuken Supers around. It's weird seeing a Shinku Hadoken being done with kick buttons.
Very nice of you to update though. Feels more balanced compared to the other versions around.
