Following up on what @DoobyDude23 said, you can get certain special moves that can also be done in the air to work much closer to the ground by inputting instead of the usual after a jump, which is nigh impossible to pull off on time. Hisako’s in-air on-ryo-zan is just 1 good example of this. Try it with much of the cast to see what I mean. It’s actually a really cool shortcut!
wow, thanks. i’ve been playing KI for over 2 years now and had no idea. Any air ORZ juggle shennanigans i do require me to be 100% on point with my inputs haha
