    IB. About this FAQ |=-
    
        Welcome to my first-ever guide to Kidou Tenshi Angelic Layer. This FAQ
    tackles the moves your Angel, Hikaru (or your custom Angel, after you've 
    completed Advance Story Mode), can use in battle. This also discusses the 
    various aspects of each attack, and a possible combo string for your Angel.

    IIA. About the Concentration Gauge |=-
    
        Before we begin discussing moves, let's talk about something important in 
    Angelic Layer: the Concentration Gauge.
    
        This is the green bar below your Angel's Physical strength gauge, better 
    known as your Hit Points. Your concentraion dictates what moves you can or 
    cannot make. For example, you have 18 Concentration points left in your gauge, 
    and you want Hikaru to execute a combo that would take 22 Concentration 
    points (those moves would probably be Rolling Sand and Astral Emission, more 
    on that later). It would be impossible for you to execute the combo because, 
    well, you obviously lack points. But, if you wanted to execute a three-move 
    combo that takes only 14 points, there's a chance you might pull it off. 
    
        Your Concentration points return after a while; take care not to use up 
    your points too quickly, because you only recover 2 to 4 points per turn.
    
        A word of caution: plan your moves beforehand. Sometimes you'll have to 
    reset your game (or a lot of times, as I did) to find out what your opponents' 
    weaknesses are. From there, you can then map out your combos and strategies. 
    But most of your first fights aren't that hard, so you'll have plenty of time 
    to adjust and think up your combo. 
    
    
    
    IIB. The Moves |=-
    
        And now, the moment we've all been waiting for... The Movelist discussion.
    
        At first, Hikaru only has five moves to choose from, but you'll get more 
    "modules", or movesets, as you progress throughout the game. Most of the 
    better moves, however, are available only after you finish Advance Story mode. 
    This is how I'll discuss each move:
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Move Name (Nihonggo name first, rough English translation in parentheses)
    Rank - Required Concentration point/s
    Move Description
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
        I must add, though, that I'm writing the names down as I read it. Sorry if 
    I make a misinterpretation, as I know next to nothing about Japanese. Please 
    feel free to correct me if you find anything.
    
        With that said, let's get on with the show.
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    
    Jabu (Jab)
    C - 1
    A left-hand jab from Hikaru. Not very effective, low damage, but useful in 
    setting up a combo. There's a double and triple version of this move, with 
    almost nothing changed except the amount of jabs thrown. Oh, and also the 
    Concentration points used, too.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Sutureto (Straight)
    C - 2
    A straight right punch. Better damage than the jab.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Bakuten (Backflip?)
    C - 2
    Hikaru will flip backwards one space. One of Hikaru's first hit-and-run 
    maneuvers. Use this in a quick-hit combo, although if you fail the preceding 
    move you won't be able to continue. There's also a Bakuten x2 for double panel 
    backflips.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Futo Sutampu (Foot Stomp)
    C - 2
    Hikaru jumps and lands on both feet. Probably one of the combo staples, the 
    foot stomp deals much more damage than the straight and the jab. Useful when 
    you knock your opponent down, as they can't block while lying on the ground. 
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Midoru Kiku (Middle Kick) 
    B - 3
    A kick aimed at the midsection. Useful for knocking down opponents.

        That's the first five, here are the rest (this list isn't complete yet, 
    more to come as I play again):
    
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Asturaru Emishion (Astral Emission)
    S - 12
    Probably the deadliest move in the game, the Angel Althena's Astral Emission 
    can be yours! Your Angel will sprout wings, she'll gather a ball of energy in 
    front of her, then push it towards your opponent. 
    
    If your opponent fails to block this, it's an ALMOST assured victory. Beware 
    of high-HP opponents that retain a maximum of 50HP even after eating an Astral 
    Emission full in the face (a case in point is Shirahime). MAKE SURE THAT YOUR 
    OPPONENT DOES NOT BLOCK THIS!!
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Ashibarai (Leg Sweep?)
    C - 2
    Hikaru will crouch and sweep her left leg in an arc. An effective knockdown 
    move, but I haven't tried this yet in a combo.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Apa-kato (Uppercut)
    B - 3
    Hikaru will execute a close-range uppercut. Good for setting up the Rolling 
    Sand in a combo. 
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Idou x1 
    C - 2
    Hikaru appears to hover in mid-air and flicker in and out, as if she's evading 
    an attack. I don't know what this is for, really. Maybe there's a x2 version, 
    I just don't have it yet.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Uraken (Backhand Slap?)
    B - 3
    Hikaru will pivot on her right leg and sweep her left arm out in a backhand 
    slap. Good for setting up a guard breaker combo.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Kiainime
    C - 0
    Hikaru appears to gather energy, but nothing happens. Can someone please tell 
    me what's this move for?
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Kiainime x2
    B - 0
    A double version of Kiainime. I don't even know what that move does!
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Kiku Konbineshion (Kick Combination)
    B - 5
    Hikaru does a roundhouse kick, immediately followed by a middle kick.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Kyachi Ando Surou (Catch and Throw)
    B - 2
    Hikaru grapples her opponent and throws her up into the air. A VERY EFECTIVE 
    combo move, since while in the air they can't block. 
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Guraporu Irekae
    B - 2
    Hikaru grapples her opponent, but instead of throwing the opponent upwards, 
    Hikaru switches places with her opponent and immediately executes the next 
    move. Good for situations where you're pinned to the edge of the Layer 
    (the arena) and you're not yet ready to give up.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Shinoodori (Bladed Roundhouse Kick?)
    A - 4
    Hikaru uses her left leg as pivot while she spins and kicks out using her 
    right leg, reaching six panels in front of her (three panels wide and two 
    panels long). A wave will then come out from Hikaru's kick, and damage her 
    opponent.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Janpo Kiku (Jump Kick)
    B - 3
    Hikaru will jump up and deal a flying kick from two squares away. Can knock 
    opponents down.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Janpo Panchi (Jump Punch)
    B - 3
    Hikaru will jump up, glide foward, and throw a punch. Can also knock opponents 
    down.
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Tsukidashi 
    A - 3
    Hikaru will roughly push her opponent two squares backward. Good for knocking 
    opponents out of the Layer, thus getting an easy win. But there's no such 
    thing as an easy win here, unless you have the focus of a microscope ^^.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Haipa Modo (Hyper Mode)
    S - 4
    Hikaru will gather energy and her body will brighten up (literally). Her 
    attacks also seem to have more power, although her HP decreases by one.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Bakupuribu (Back Flip?)
    B - 2
    Hikaru lifts her opponent and tosses her backwards.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Hizageri
    B - 3
    Hikaru jumps forward and brings up one knee, ramming it into the opponent's 
    face. Can knock opponents down.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Mawarikomi
    C - 2
    Hikaru glides (slides?) back to the right side of the Layer, opposite her 
    opponent.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Raiato (Riot?)
    B - 3
    Hikaru will jump into the air and punch her opponent, sending them both to the 
    left (right) side of the Layer, whichever side Hikaru is facing. Also knocks 
    down opponents.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Roringu Sanda (Rolling Sand)
    A - 10
    Hikaru will do a double somersault, using the second one to kick her opponent 
    backward. This causes a knockdown, and can be used for an effective combo.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Roringu Supato (Rolling Spate?)
    B - 4
    A three-panel roundhouse kick. Deals decent damage. Also knocks opponents down.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Panshi Konbo (Punch Combo)
    C - 3
    A combination of double jab and straight. Not much to say here.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    
    IIC. Combos
    
    
        Of course, in every fight there's a gamer's tendency to look for moves he 
    can link, one after the other. This is the principle of combo, as we like to 
    call it. Angelic Layer is no exception. 
    
        By wisely planning your moves, you can create a devastating combo that 
    will eliminate your opponent in a matter of seconds. Assuming, of course, that 
    she doesn't block. 
    
        Keep that in mind every time you attempt a combo.
    
        Here are some of the combos I've linked together. If you found another, 
    you can let me post it and I'll give you full credit for it.
    
        And this is how I'll tackle combos:
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Combo Name (The one I gave it, I don't know about you guys)
    Move 1 - Move 2 - Move 3 - ... - Move n
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
        The asterisks (*) indicate that you can use whatever move you want to. 
    
        As an added precaution, you might want to use Hyper Mode every match, as 
    it can be of great help to you. But you might get it only after you finish 
    Advance Story Mode, so... Do as you wish.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Basic Combo (Probably your first)
    Jab/Straight - Middle Kick - Foot Stomp
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Rolling Sand Combo [Note1]
    Guraporu Irekae/Catch&Throw - Jab/Straight/Uraken/Uppercut - Rolling Sand - 
    Foot Stomp
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Guard Breaker Combo
    Uraken/Uppercut - Rolling Sand - *
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    Astral Emission Combo
    Catch And Throw/Guraporu Irekae - Astral Emission - Foot Stomp
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    
    Note1:
    If you will use grapple techniques, ignore the next step (attacking) and 
    immeiately proceed to using Rolling Sand. If you prefer to attack, don't use 
    any grapple technique.
