    * Introduction *				       *BL-01*
    Welcome to my first ever FAQ, for Bleach: Heat the Soul for
    the Sony Playstation Portable (PSP).  B:HtS is the first 3D
    cel-shaded fighter available for the PSP, based off the
    extremely popular manga and anime series "Bleach" by Kubo 
    I'll assume if you're here, and looking at this FAQ, you're
    already a Bleach fan, and know about the story, so i'm only
    really going to cover the technical side of the game.  So,
    please enjoy my first FAQ.
    * Version History *				       *BL-02*
    - April 15th, 2005: Version 1.00.  First version, still *ALOT*
    		    to work on.  Just wanted to get a basic
    		    move list out, and the other basics.
    * Games Modes *					       *BL-03*
    * Options * BL-03-1*
    Once you enter the Mode Selection screen, press Triangle to
    enter the Options menu.  Here you can select:
    	- Difficulty: There are 5 levels of difficulty, and
    	  the default value is 3.
    	- Damage Level: Again, 5 levels, 1 being the lowest
    	  amount of damage, and 5 being the highest.
    	- Key Config: X 	= Physical Attack.
    		      Circle	= Weapon Attack.
    		      Square	= Soul Energy.
    		      Triangle  = Jump.
    	  The final option in the Key Config menu is to
    	  reset the keys to their default setting as
    	  listed above.
    	 - Sound: 
    		  - System Voice: Let's you modify the system 
    		   voice, when it actually does talk, you can
    		   change it from Default to Ichigo or Rukia.
     		  - BGM Volume: From 100%-0%
    		  - SE Volume: Sound Effects volume, 100%-0% 
    	 - Save/Load: Gives you a Save, Load, Auto-Save,
    		      and Delete option.  When you hit "Save"
    		      press "Left" once and hit Circle to
    		      save your game (You want the 2 symbol
    		      word (Yes) and not the 3 symbol word
    		      which is ("No"))
    * VS CPU * BL-03-2*
    VS CPU is just that, you playing versus the computer.  You
    chose any fighter, and fight your way through the remaining
    fighters and yourself.		
    * Characters *					       *BL-04*
    1.  Circle will select the original outfit for the character,
        and Triangle will select their alternate outfit.  X
        will bring you back to the prior screen.
    2.  "Super Guage" You and your enemy share a common Super
         Guage.  It's split 50/50 at first, and each time you
         hit the enemy, you gain a bit, and he/she looses a bit.
         As long as you have any energy left in your gauge, you
         can attempt a super move (Square, quickly followed by
         X or Circle).  Even if you have no energy in your gauge
         you can perform a super move, however if you miss, your
         character will be left panting for several moments, and
         you can't move or attack.
    3.  All characters can, by hitting Square twice use their 
        spiritual energy to "stun" the enemy for a moment or two.
        The range of the spiritual energy differs for each
        character, but only by a little bit.
    4.  When you are on your second life bar, and low on health,
        your health bar will flash red.  At this point you can
        press Square quickly followed by Triangle to raise your
        offense while lowering your defense.  Additionally, when
        you use your spiritual power to stun the enemy, the area
        affected will be much larger than normal.
    **** YOUR CHARACTER IS FACING LEFT. **********************
