    Last Blade Combo FAQ v 1.0
    After almost a month Last Blade is released, I finally gathered quite enough 
    combos for Last Blade to start on an FAQ on it . This FAQ is to help those 
    people who are having problems with Last Blade combos. Although Last Blade may 
    not be as 'combo-oriented' as King of Fighters 97, there are a few cool things 
    about Last Blade, like the Super Cancel, and '"combo-special" thing. So far all 
    the basic combos are added in this initial release for all the characters, so 
    read through slowly for those really damaging combos. And thanks for reading 
    this FAQ. If there are any questions about combos, feel free to e-mail me or 
    just leave a message in the message board at the COMBO PAGE.
    
    1.2 Storyline of Last Blade
    
    The two worlds which existed from ancient times, the human world and the Under 
    world. These two distant worlds have been connected from the past by the Gate 
    of Hell, guarded by four deities who must always stay in the shadows of 
    history. As time passed and 200 years from the reign of the Tokugawa 
    Government, people began to fear as their shallow world of peace quickly faded
    away with the rumors of the resurrecting Demon. The long peace which had taken
    place not only pressed greater fear amongst the people but also took away the 
    swords and samurais, leaving almost no hope. But not all hope was lost. There 
    were still those with hope and hearts of fire....And there were those with 
    lust for the Demon. Thus the last of the fighters began their journey, to 
    learn and finish whatever destiny awaited for them.

    Part 2: Character story and combos
    
    2.1 Kaede "Shining Soul"
    
    2.1.1 Story line
    ----------------
    Found and brought up by a swordsman, Kaede grew up with Moria and Yuki,
    both of whom were as good as family to him. Having mysterious powers,it
    was not rare for him to surprise them, as well as himself. At the age of 12, 
    upon returning from an errand Kaede and Yuki found Moriya
    standing in front of the corpse of their teacher, the swordsman.
    Kaede who respected Moriya for his Swordsmanship but more as a brother,
    quickly saw his world crash behind him and attacked Moriya. Moriya did 
    not even try to dodge and was slashed, then left the Dojo behind 
    without a word.....Five years later, Kaede decides travels to learn the
    truth to what had happened that day by seeking out for Moriya, and 
    getting revenge for his adopted father.

    2.1.3 General Combos:
    ---------------------
    (for all chain combos, refer to section 1.5)
    
    best mode:
    (SPEED/POWER)
    
    (SPEED)
    fw + D, go to fallen opponent and dnfw + B
    forward heavy kick, then go to fallen opponent and execute the downward slash
    
    Jump B/C,
    A --> B or
    A --> A --> B or
    A --> A --> dwn + B or
    A --> dwn + A --> B or
    bk  + A --> A --> A --> B or
    bk  + A --> A --> A --> dwn + B or
    bk  + A -->A --> dwn + A--> B or
    bk  + A -->A --> dwn + A--> dwn + B, then into either
    i)"Single Slash. Squall", QCF + A or B
    ii)"Single Slash. WindFang", DP + A or B then go to fallen opponent and dnfw + B
    iii)"Single Slash. Fillet Flash", QCB + A or B x 3 go to fallen opponent and 
    dnfw + B
    
    
    Jump B/C,
    A --> B or
    A --> A --> B or
    A --> A --> dwn + B or
    A --> dwn + A --> B or
    bk  + A --> A --> A --> B or
    bk  + A --> A --> A --> dwn + B or
    bk  + A -->A --> dwn + A--> B or
    bk  + A -->A --> dwn + A--> dwn + B, 
    QCB + A, QCB + A, pause then either
    i)"Single Slash. Squall", QCF + A
    ii)"Single Slash. WindFang", DP + B, tap B go to fallen opponent and dnfw + B
    iii)"Single Slash. Fillet Flash", QCB + A once go to fallen opponent and dnfw 
    + B
    
    
    (HD)(DM)
    HCF + C, QCB, QCF + AB go to fallen opponent and dnfw + B
    Execute Kaede's command throw move then execute his super special, 
    "Lively Dragon Pounce", qcb, qcf + AB
    
    HCF + C, DP + A or DP + B, tap B go to fallen opponent and dnfw + B
    Execute Kaede's command throw move then execute his uppercut, both either A or
    B version, but B version does more damage.
    
    (CBS)(HD)
    Jump B/C,
    A --> B or
    A --> A --> B or
    A --> A --> dwn + B or
    A --> dwn + A --> B or
    bk  + A --> A --> A --> B or
    bk  + A --> A --> A --> dwn + B or
    bk  + A -->A --> dwn + A--> B or
    bk  + A -->A --> dwn + A--> dwn + B,
    dwn, dwn + AB, 
    bk + A -->A --> A --> A -->B -->B , then either
    i) QCF + A x 3 - 10
    ii)QCB + A, QCB + A, DP + B, tap B go to fallen opponent and dnfw + B
    the above combo is a bit exaggerating but it works, because after the first 
    series of chain combos, then if you execute the "combo special" system, more 
    series of chains can be added as Kaede's speed is doubled and the qcf  + As can 
    be combo-ed one after the other. 
    
    (POWER)
    fw  + D, go to fallen opponent and dnfw + B
    forward heavy kick, then go to fallen opponent and execute the downward slash
    
    
    Jump B/C, Stand B, then either
    i)"Single Slash. Squall", QCF + A or B
    ii)"Single Slash. WindFang", DP + A or B then go to fallen opponent and dnfw + B
    iii)"Single Slash. Fillet Flash", QCB + A or B x 3 go to fallen opponent and 
    dnfw + B
    
    Jump B/C, stand B, QCB + A, QCB + A ...DP + B, tap B, then go to fallen 
    opponent and dnfw + B jumping heavy slash, standing heavy slash, combo-ed 
    into qcb + A, qcb + A, then execute Kaede's uppercut + B, tap B for the 
    finisher.
    
    (HD)(DM)
    Jump B/C, stand B, "Bad Dragon Rising", QCB, QCF + B
    Jumping heavy slash, standing heavy slash combo-ed into potential special, "Bad 
    Dragon Rising", qcb, qcf + B
    
    2.1.4 Deflect combos:
    ---------------------
    
    These combos are done after you deflected(with the D button) one of your 
    opponent's attack.
    After 'Deflect', your opponent may be open for combos. 
    There are two types of 'deflect' combos, air and land.
    Air 'Deflect' is when you deflect your opponent's jump in combos
    Land 'Deflect' is when you deflect your opponent's normal ground attacks
    For reference of 'deflecting', visit:
    Darklancer's Arcade Game Page
    
    http://home.pacific.net.sg/~lancer/
    for his last blade movelist faq.

    to learn under a respected swordsman. It was only a few years later 
    that Moriya excelled even the swordsman. Moriya respected the swords

    a family. But one day when Moriya was 17, he quickly realized that he
