Mitsurugi's Critical Edge is not unblockable?

In Mitsurugi's movelist the Critical Edge is suppose to unblockable but I did it a few times to people online and they blocked it. How does it keep getting blocked and how/what is the timing to make it unblockable?

well actually its not just mitsurugi's critical edge that can be blocked apparently anyone's critical edge can be blocked by what some call a Just Block, where you press the block button right before u get hit. Almost like a parry but simply like the name suggest, just blocking at the right moment. As for the timing to make mitsurugi or anyone else's critical edge unblockable for any matter u need to either launch or bounce ur oppenent depending on the character ur using the combo will be different. With mitsurugi i like to either 3b and then do the critical edge while they are in air, this works with other launch moves for mitsurugi as long as ur in range, or u can do like the move list suggest for combos and do (crouch)1b~b and then insert the critical edge. im sure there is plenty of combonations u could do so just go out there and experiment and see what works with ur style.
sorry for the long post but anyways good luck and have fun!

I don't have a lot of experience with Mitsurugi's Critical Edge, but I'd imagine the problem here is that only one of the strikes are unblockable.

I know, I thought it was unblockable, but the AI has blocked it!

And I know easy mode Pyrrha didn't just block it - maybe it's just his.
Also, everyone's CE is blockable, but I thought his was, too.
It looks like a fire attack.

It's blockable.Just not the second hit,if you watch the corner under your guys name it will show when the attack is unblockable,same with Aeons brave edge.
