I don’t know if anybody else has shown any of these setups before, so I thought I’d post some here. The neutral bird assist is so damn strong at keeping strong pressure, while replenishing ammo, and it also recovers immediately. All of these setups are built off of this move.
One chance break with meter. It can be done without meter by sliding in or hitting a manual at any point. Can’t be Shadow Countered, can’t be backdashed. The arrows that the bird pick up actually hit overhead because I’m doing qcb+p at the same time (really cheap). It’s a pretty hard to escape high-high-low-high-qoierjfpqeornv mixup.
It can also be altered to get the following resets:
Crossup reset (with me trying to block it):
Double crossup reset (with me mashing jab):
You can also confirm the 1st low arrow into Shadow Rain Shot for some tricky, high-damage resets:
Shadow Rain Shot low-high reset:
Shadow Rain Shot crossup reset:
Shadow Rain Shot frame-trap xx crossup reset:
I was mashing jab after the Shadow, and got counter hit
This is something I’m working on off of a throw. It’s hard to know if it’s actually tight because of the lack of control with the record function. This is one of many that you can get off of a throw.
Just a cool combo:
