    Akira Advanced Combo FAQ ver 1.0
    This is my combo faq for all you Akira lovers, and for all those
    people who think that Akira doesn't have any combos other than
    his preprogrammed ones.  So, in an effort to dispel this myth, I
    wrote this FAQ.  It's not exhaustive; there are many more combos
    which can be done, and I hope to add them in future versions.
    These combos are all verified, though if you find that one isn't
    possible, it's likely that your opponent is too heavy.  I plan on
    adding more m-sgpm and m-dbpm combos in the future.  Right
    now, I can't seem to pull them off consistently on the Saturn
    Disclaimer:  These all work on the Saturn version of VF2.  If they
    don't work for you in the arcade, go buy a Saturn.

    Doug Trueman: Writer of this FAQ, Akira brown belt and all
    around great guy.
    Henry Kong: Provided many of the combos; can smash anyone
    with any character.  (his Lau is outlawed in nine different states)
    Jamison Chan-Clark: Inspired me to focus on Akira.
    Tyler Lawson:  Sinks his teeth into more bait than a school of trout.  :D
    Lars Sorenson:  Manager of the Home of Virtua Fighter Page,
    should get credit for that if for no other reason, and added many of the
    more difficult combos.  A decided masochist.  :D
    Joji Suzuki: Creator of the original Akira FAQ.  Everyone seems to
    thank him, so I thought I would, too.  :D
    Lan Bui:  My first Akira Sensei.  I owe much of my ability to him.
    Sega: Created such an awesome game.
    Yu Suzuki:  The creator of VF2, and head of Sega's #2 R&D
    No thanks to:
    The bastards who run the arcade at U of C, and still won't lower
    the price down from $1.00 for 2/3.
    EGM, for repeatedly raping rvga, and its self-aggrandizing way of
    claiming that it's the best gaming mag around, when we all know
    it's not.
    God, who doesn't exist; if he did, I'd have more competition and
    wouldn't live in the backwoods of Calgary
    I can be reached at doogiet@telusplanet.net.  Feel free to
    respond, criticize, etc.  All letters will be replied to promptly.
    (Except for those coming from Lars, who still owes me a copy of
    the Denmark VF2 tourney, which is now over 4 months late.)  :D
