1. Intro [INT]

First of all, yes, that is my last name.
XD This guide is compiled by yours truly
to give a detailed overlook of each of the
special attack magnus in this game. Special
Attack Magnus are the attacks with the symbols
under them and then the Roman numeral: Circle,
Diamond, Square, and Sagi, Guillo, and Milly
respectively character-wise, and the numerals
range from I, II, III, and IV. Keep in mind there
may be some spoilers, as this guide is written under
the intent that the player is at the point where every
special attack is acquired, and the fact that you have
defeated the Wiseman sub-boss.

2. Updates [UPD]
v. .7-Have added Scension, Heavenfall, Cliffsunder, and Ascension to the guide.
v. .8-Added the rest of Sagi’s attacks, started Milly’s. 
v. .9-Finished Milly’s attacks, started Guillo’s.
v. 1.0- Finished Guillo’s attacks. 
v. 1.1-Fixed spelling errors, and added last two sections. Currently ready for
submission.

3. Contact Information [CINF]

If you have a question concerning the guide,
the attacks, or something else relevant to the
guide, I will answer it. My email is gcnmaster@hotmail.com.
If you ask how many magnus there are or a question other than
what is stated above, I will blow it off, as this is a guide made
purely for special attacks.

8. FAQ [FAQ]

6. Final Word/Outro [FWO]

Now, I assume you read through this guide since you like
this game, but if you’re just browsing, that’s fine too. I’d
just like to say this game is excellent, and if you’re going
to beat tougher enemies, you’re going to need that last attack
in here. ;) I made this for the purpose of the player’s enjoyment,
and not for profit whatsoever,  so please don’t steal this guide.
This will currently only be posted on GameFAQs, and I intend to keep it that
way.

7. Credits [CDS]

First of all, I do not own any of the franchises behind the game,
nor did I produce it: That would be credited to Namco-Bandai,
tri-crescendo, and the other companies. 

I’d like to give thanks to them, and also everyone who has
posted a guide about this game on GameFAQs, because those
have helped me acquire these and record them.
