I'm also having a hard time getting into her target combos ( especially the mid-air ones ), I use TC4 a lot, and special cancelling into ex kazigiri can extend the combo by land a j.hp right after. I still need to understand the jist of the character.
she has really safe and crazy pressure with tsjumi (or whatever its called), lp, cr.lp, s.mk, f.lk, f.hk.. solid AA with agemon that leads to huge damage air throw good launcher that sets up damaging tag combos ambiguous cross ups with lk, mk command dash mix ups lots of options with her different special moves
she can really lay the offense on someone quick and has solid footsies, but has NO true reversal and a super high jump at can be difficult to get used to
but basically, shes really good but has maybe the highest execution requirement imo --- main: juri/marduk sub: ryu/ibuki
I started using her 2 days ago. She is really hard to use. jump cancelling her attacks are difficult. I can only JC to raida about 50-60% of the time. O_O. I'm trying to get used to JC her st.mk mid combo to raida or to start another crossup combo. It is tricky though.
She has low health btw so be careful about putting on too much pressure on a srk happy player. 3 reversal srks and you are basically a goner.
I need to start mixing in cr.lk in her combos to get a high/low game going on.
Her close range pokes are very short ranged but her mid range pokes are quite good in terms of range. Only her st.mk is special cancellable from what I remember though. Maybe her f.lk is too.
Essentially when she is cornered she can't do much but block and pray but when putting on pressure she does pretty well. The one guy on this board I cannot beat lost a few rounds to my ibuki because of her pressure but as soon as she is pressured > 80-90% health gone in one combo O_O (seriously, asuka and xiayou can do 90% with one combo).
One tip for you I found but haven't tried in a real match yet is after doing a combo that hits the opponent high with a character tag to ibuki and jump hk, cl.hk > JC > j.hk > kazakiri. An excellent ender (don't do super as the meter will just be wasted because of scaling in most cases). --- We are not the masks we wear. But, if we don them, do we not become them?

Why on earth did they make Ibuki's kunai a hard knockdown? She has no vortex. Switch to another character. --- Currently Playing: Tales of Vesparia, CoD:MW3, Skyrim, and Final Fantasy 13-2 Waiting for: Mass Effect 3, Zone of the Enders HD
