    	Kensei is one of those games which comes along not so often, but
    carries some of the best elements in a game (a fighting game in
    here).  Kensei puts a lot of emphasis on REAL LIFE martial arts. 
    Each character has his own style which makes the game more
    interesting.

        Block - X button

    III.  Getting The Sub Characters, Bosses, Hidden Characters
    
         The Sub Characters are the opponents you face on your 9th round
    when playing the game in Normal Mode.  After you beat the game with
    your character, his Sub Character will become playable.  Here is the
    way to get ALL OF THE SUB CHARACTERS.  I also suggest that you first
    put the game on VERY EASY, 20 seconds, 1 round against the computer,
    to have them all faster.
    
    Note:  The Sub Characters, Bosses, and Hidden Characters have similar
    moves to their counterparts.

    like Hyoma and Sessue's)
    *Kaiya                                              Jelly/Billy
    (Billy is his alternate costume)
    
    IV.  Extra Mode
    
        After getting all of the Sub Characters, Bosses, and Hidden
    Characters, you will notice that there will be a new mode in the
    title screen, the Extra Mode.  After you choose that, a new screen
    will appear.
    
        The new mode is actually a New Game!  It's called Running Bugi. 
    It's like a time lap race where you use your characters to run around
    a track.  Cute game.
    
    V.  Questions
    
      1.  Why is it that THERE ARE NO ENDINGS IN THE GAME?  I have the
    JAPANESE version, even though, why are there NO ENDINGS FOR THE
    CHARACTERS?  Is there a way to see one?
     
      2.  Are there other extra games in this game?
    
    	Enjoy the game anyway........heheheh...
