    A Word Before We Get Down To The Real Talk:
    -------------------------------------------
    What you will read down is my strategy, which means..
    it might not be workable with you as it is with me and
    may be yes. I really do not need any E-Mail(s) asking:
    "What is good or bad" since I will fully talk about
    everything about her (including combination attacks).
    Hope it will somehow be useful to you and lead your
    play or skills to a higher level.

    Strategy:
    ----------------
    Well, as most of you know that Julia is a fast
    character who depends on attacking more than defending
    (turtling?). This year, she is way faster, better and
    stronger than the last year. She has got very useful
    moves (low recovery) and some other damaging moves but
    with a long lag. Also, she has got some good range
    moves that help her to approach her opponent easily.
    But of course, those moves must be used wisely, or you
    will get your ass kicked in no time. Actually I like
    Julia so much that I did not touch any other character
    but her. But I know all my opponents' moves of course
    so that I can get them with their weak points.
    
    I strongly advice you to learn all her moves and try
    to know her good and weak points in each move so that
    you can use them perfectly with any expert opponent.
    Which means, her Lashing Arrow cannot be used freely
    because it has a bad recovery time, unlike her Party
    Crasher... it is by far the best and fastest move in
    her command list. But does that mean you can never use
    Lashing Arrow in any battle? Of course you can, when
    the opponent is on the ground and then does rolling
    backward, you can use it or after Shove It Up
    (counter). But for a decent and pure damage do Palm
    Explosion... range and damage (12 damage I think).
    Everybody knows that Julia has got some damaging moves
    but at the same time, if not hit, big lag... so they
    in return either wait for a mistake and attack with
    normal ones and then when you do, and the opponent
    just defended it... you are HISTORY. Like what?
    Simply, Tequila Sunrise Low Kick Slash Uppercut. This
    is a very good move for a decent combo after it. But
    what if the opponent defended it? You get the picture.
    
    So, you can always not complete it, like LK, RP, RK
    then stop and Party Crasher or crouching LP (jab). You
    notice that Julia has got so many different ways to
    change her Tequila Sunrise move. To Low Kick Slash
    Uppercut, or Low High Kicks or even Low Kicks. Just be
    REALLY careful with her Tequila Sunrise Elbow Smash
    because it is extremely not as useful as others. You
    can always go to other moves other than this. Also,
    her sidesteps are good... I mean her Parting Fist and
    Twin Walking Kicks. Twin Walking Kicks can be used
    when you see any straight special attack, like Paul's
    Thruster, Burning Spear or Phoenix Smasher... just
    sidestep and then do Twin Walking Kicks, and do then
    carry on with a very damaging combo so that your
    opponent never risks such a move. Like Twin Walking
    Kicks, Divine Impact. 
    
    Mountain Crusher is great for combos. Razor's Edge is
    good for the tricky guys or to put it in any combo or
    cornered opponents. But becareful, because if she
    missed the last hit (the important one) then you will
    eat some damage. So use it when you are pretty sure.
    And if you want to go for a grap, use Mad Axes because
    it takes good damage (around 42... 14-100%). Her Party
    Crasher is so useful but becareful that some guys like
    to wait and then sidestep and kick you real good. But
    of course you can always play fast and change your
    ways. Do not stick with one method so that you won't
    be easy to read. Also her Party Crasher is fast and
    even if they defend it, you can still do one of the
    following three choices, 1-Defend, 2-Crouching LP or
    3-Elbow Skyscraper Kick. If you can react fast, see
    the opponent and if he or she is about to move just
    Elbow Skyscraper Kick. It is great. And you can do
    other things as well. Also her Party Crasher can be
    really a pain in the @$$ when you do it over, over,
    over, over and over again after every combo... mostly,
    air combos I mean. 
    
    Her Plam Explosion is great for another thing than the
    one I talked about above. When it counters the
    opponent, it will make him/her get stunned (falling
    down slowing) for about less than three seconds... so
    you can keep on with the painful combos. But do not do
    it unless you are pretty sure that it will at least
    hit the opponent! As I said, Julia recovers real slow
    from some good attacks, but that does not mean the end
    of the world, you can use these attacks effectively if
    you know all your opponents moves, also you can always
    cancel some of your moves to others. Your opponent is
    no fortune teller, he knows your character's good and
    weak points, but he does not know what you are going
    to do "next"! If you see a good chance, go for the
    Slow Power Punch Combo, because after it, there will
    be a big mess (must see the combos down). Also her
    Machine Gun Cannon is good for combos too, but also
    during counter hit... any way it is really damaging. I
    see many guys do her Ultimate Cannon endlessly and
    carelessly, and I tell you use it wisely because if
    the opponent defends it, then be ready for a combo and
    do not forget to say OUCH (if the opponent is an
    expert, that is). Same case goes for Bow & Arrow Kick.
    Remember that her three ten hit combos are so easy to
    read. So, if the opponent defends the first four hits,
    you can always stop (don't worry, just stop or
    continue with another hit and then stop)... do not say
    you are one of the Button-Mashers Fan Club? When you
    realize it did not hit, just stop... because I always
    kick my opponent very and I mean VERY hard when he or
    she does not stop! She does four middle hits so most
    of them can get the picture of her ten hit combos. As
    I do with the other characters.
    
    Her unblockable move, Heavy Uppercut is GREAT but so
    avoidable. It is great because you can do GOOD and
    DAMAGING combos after it, but it is noticeable.
    Anyway, if you think that the opponent noticed it
    (fast reaction) then cancel and Party Crasher or Mad
    Axes. Her double Sweep move is effective in corners...
    besides which, she is so deadly when she corners her
    opponent... so, please be kind enough to not let your
    opponent get away, because it is kind of rare to get
    the chance to corner your opponent. Many guys knows
    so, so they play wise and not corner themselves,
    especially Marduk. But becareful with Nina or some
    guys, they might be tricky when they are cornered,
    just focus. Please, do not listen to those who say
    that Julia should defend and turtle with Marduk so
    that she can own him. Ahh, for God's sake, Julia
    already owns him for free... her jab is faster and
    better than his... so if you do not want Marduk to
    kick your sorry @$$, "ATTACK EFFECTIVELY and
    ENDLESSLY" (but not carelessly! Greetings, scrubs
    ^_^). 
    
    There are so many things to tell, but the above are
    the major important things, other are easy to know.
    Stick with the games rules a lot (like sidesteps,
    graps and parrys), because they are also helpful. And
    that is about it.

    I have always been so... so if anybody is not good
    with it, you can see the command list above and then
    check here again. I will list every good, bad, short,
    long, easy and hard combos. I really will not bother
    to look for sites to put any of their combos in here.

    might know all the combos... I will put it just for
    Juila's fans' sake. Only the first five combos are
