1. Author's Note
----------
Hey there! Welcome to my Melty Blood Act Cadenza Tohno Shiki Guide 
(damn, that's long o.o)! In this Guide, I'll cover his movelists and 
strategies that are listed in here so sit back, relax and enjoy!


----------
2. Illegal Blipwah
----------
So far there are scums (like you for instance...) are trying to steal 
our work and showing it off in their sites/forums WITHOUT OUR 
NOTICE/PERMISSION. That's total bull and of course the most common to 
all writers, plagarism. By doing this kind of illegal stuff, I will 
remove this guide WITHOUT PRIOR NOTICE. Oh yeah, Copy and Paste doesn't 
save your butt either since I can recognize my format of typing and I 
do go on a Google/Yahoo searching if ever some scums plan to steal this 
and our other works as well. If you want to live much longer, be a good 
boy/girl and don't steal this! It's bad.

4a. Explanation of Movelists

Kirifuda Sono Ichi (Dai Giri)- d,df,f+A,B or C
Shiki dashes and does an upward slash with his knife. As for the C 
Version, he does a downward and upward slash then a side swipe which 
causes Wallslam.
                               Combo: B- 3 Hits
                                      C- 4 Hits+Wallslam

Kirifuda Sono Ni (Joudan Sukui)- d,db,b+A,B or C
Shiki does a slide kick which can be cancelled into any of his Special 
Moves. The C Version does an additional upward slash which causes 
Wallslam but if it misses, he won't do his upward slash.
                               Combo: C- 2 Hits+Wallslam

Jibundemo Yoku Wakaranai Geri (Sensou: Rikugyo)- f,d,df+A,B or C
Shiki does an upward kick then a second kick that sends the opponent 
down.
                               Combo: A and B- 2 Hits
                                      C- 3 Hits

Chokushi no Magan- b,db,d,df,f+C
Shiki says "Mieta!" then slowly (yes, very slow) dashes, hops through 
the opponent and slashes it in a blink of an eye then the background 
shatters. Range is somewhat short. Blockable.

Jyuunana Bunkatsu- during Blood Heat Mode, b,db,d,df,f+C
Shiki saya "Korosu" then slowly dashes though the opponent and hacks 
the opponent 17 times with just a dash then the background shatters. 
The range is short compared to Chokushi no Magan since the jump is very 
short. Blockable.
                               Combo: 17 (as the movename 
implies...)Hits

But I think Chokushi no Magan and Jyuunana Bunkatsu are unblockable if 
you are VERY close to the opponent.

Chokushi no Magan: Kesshi no Ichigeki- during Blood Heat Mode, parry 
attack in middle stance
Shiki crouches, does a quick slant slash (with blood) and the screen 
shatters (and no, I don't mean your TV Screen...). Causes Circuit 
Break.

5. Boss Strategies
----------

5a. Nanaya, Shiki
One word to this guy: Fast. Teleport is his best friend and often does 
his sweep kick which ends up to his trust Sensa: Hattenshou (Kyou). If 
he, however, teleports upward, perform Jibundemo Yoku Wakaranai Geri to 
stun him. Stay on range because more likely he will teleport and punish 
you real hard.

5b. Aozaki, Aoko
Cheapness isn't her specialty but staying away does. She mainly casts 
Floating Starmine (both in ground and air) to stay away within range. 
Before she performs it, get close to her and do a combo (it's up to you 
how) on the ground but not in the air or else she'll counter you with 
either Floating or Raining Starmine. She's fairly easy.

roles in game/anime as well.
