Satomura Akane

Introduction

Satomura Akane (里村 茜) is the Millia of EFZ, both in how she plays and how she looks. While she has low damage, her mixup game is extremely strong as in addition to Millia’s tools, she received Urien’s Aegis Reflector and Akuma’s Demon Flip. She is also a threat in the neutral game, being able to use Captain Commando style assists to control space. Her limits are mostly linked to the player’s execution, as the timings of her various setups and combos are extremely tight and character specific.

Akane is one of the heroines of ONE, a visual novel produced by Tactics in 1998. She is a classmate of Kouhei. When it rains, one will always find Akane at the grassy field, looking as if she was waiting for someone. She is very quiet to the point where you could say she isolates herself from others. During ONE, Kouhei learns the reason for Akane's melancholy, which is connected to his own fate...

Stage: Rainy Field (雨の空き地)

BGM: A Tair

Character-Specific Notes

  • Akane is able to air jump once, and air dash/backstep once.
  • A few of Akane's moves call forth her friend Shiko to the battle. If Shiko is already on-screen, Akane will not be able to use any Shiko-centric moves until Shiko is off-screen again.

Akane's hair forms into a large drill in front of her and spins. Since this move hits multiple times and cannot be guarded normally in the air, it can be an effective move against opponents jumping in.

Akane extends her head out almost touching the ground and back again, allowing her hair to cut a wide arc in front of her. This move will knock down the opponent if it connects. It's a good combo starter if you have the meter to IC. Otherwise, you can set up some oki tricks off a non IC'd hit.

Akane puts all of her body into a two-handed shove. This move causes wallbounce when used on airborne opponents. This property makes this move one of Akane's most useful normal moves to use during combos.

Akane spins into the air. Unfortunately doesn't make for a very good antiair. Extremely punishable on whiff or block without IC. Very fast startup which can be buffered during RG. Can be IC'd from any of the hits. Akane remains grounded for the first hit which can allow combos with 412C~C if this hit trades. Can be used as a grounded launcher if the first hit (or second if buffered) is IC'd which can give Akane enough time to switch sides with 662B.

B 100x4 + 250 + 100x4 Any 10 2x4 + 2 + 2x4 64 - - -

Akane skims along the ground and then spins into the air. Extremely punishable on whiff or block without IC. Fully invincible frames 10-13 preventing the initial hit from trading. Can be IC'd from any of the hits, but ICing the launching hit (5th hit) will launch the opponent while keeping Akane grounded.

C 100x6 + 400 + 100x6 Any 10 2x6 + 2 + 2x6 73 - - -

Akane skims a further distance along the ground and then spins into the air. Extremely punishable on whiff or block without IC but some characters may struggle to chase. Fully invincible frames 1-13 making it an effective reversal against grounded opponents. Can be IC'd from any of the hits, but ICing the launching hit (7th hit) will launch the opponent while keeping Akane grounded.

Akane lands and does a sliding kick similar to 2B that launches on hit. This followup does not occur on 214B.

Air Carrier
1000 Grab 4 1 -

From Assault Leap only.

During Akane's Assault Leap, Akane stops somersaulting and reaches out with her hand. On connecting, the opponent is first airthrown, and then launched into the air. This move requires strict timing. Once the move is performed, Akane's hand must reach the opponent within about half a second, otherwise the move becomes harmless and can be easily punished. This move can set up for high damage combos in the corner, though it's difficult to follow up out of corner.

214*~236*
Stun Needle
200x3 Any 13 Until off screen -

Akane throws 3 fast hair needles forward and slightly down at the opponent. The direction of the input always remains the same even when crossing behind the opponent. If the C version needles are blocked, they will bounce up into the air and fall down on the opponent. The angle of the needles is exceptional for playing a good keepaway game, and can be used to punish various long range setups. Using various heights can be effective in confusing a player, too.

Akane abruptly divekicks downwards at a steep angle. Auto-corrects to face towards the opponent except when used after Trick Leap.

Akane's hair transforms into a giant waffle surrounding Akane, and spins diagonally down-forward until reaching the ground. TK this (2369A) when close to your opponent for a fast overhead that will avoid many low attacks.

B 250xN High/Air 19 Until landing 16 - - -

Similar to above, except with a different angle - goes back a bit before going down. Airdash or jump over a knocked down opponent and use this for an ambiguous left/right overhead.

C 140xN High/Air 13 Until landing 16 - - -

Similar to the B version. Fully invincible until the first active frame. The hits tick much faster resulting in higher overall damage if not cancelled.

Akane launches several hair swords straight up off screen. A moment later, the swords fall aimed at the opponent. There are three different random angles of falling sword which have increasing damage and chip correlating to how steep the sword falls. The opponent can be hit by both the launched swords going up and the falling swords coming down. The number of swords that fall is directly related to the number of swords Akane launches. If Akane is interrupted by an opponent during the move and only launches 5 swords, only 5 swords will fall. In the corner, this attack can easily be comboed after a 214 4C or a 66C wallbounce. It is usually used for tech trap okizeme setups or just for damage. Don't use this randomly because it is easily punished by throws, the throw invincibility keeps the opponent safe from falling swords.

Shiiko jumps in front of Akane with boxing gloves and hits the opponent by moving her head in a figure-eight pattern (part of the Dempsey Roll boxing technique). Shiikoko then finishes the move with an uppercut. Can FIC any time after Shiiko arrives until before the final hit.

C 3500 None - Until off screen - -

Shiiko jumps in front of Akane with boxing gloves and moves her head in a figure-eight pattern (part of the Dempsey Roll boxing technique) in the background. After a few seconds, Shiiko launches herself straight up and slightly forward to do a powerful and unblockable frog uppercut. In this version, Akane is able to move after Shiko starts moving her head. This time should be used to keep the opponent in the exit path of Shiiko's uppercut.

Akane, with one leg raised and bent, slowly slides forward. On connecting, the screen turns black for a few seconds, and then Akane is seen looking away from the downed opponent. If this move drains the last of the opponent's hit points, the kanji for "Unpleasant" (嫌) appears in the background. Even though this move is unblockable, Akane can still be hit out of it very easily.

Strategy

Akane is an executionally demanding setplay oriented character with strong mixup options, especially with meter.
Akane's combo damage is often quite low without utilising her advanced combos which are difficult and vary a lot depending on the opponent's character and screen position.
Akane's longer range attacks have extended hurtboxes which are often beaten by more footsie based characters. This leads to Akane often playing a patient neutral utilising her assist, Shiiko, to control space.

Neutral

Notable moves
f5B - A decently ranged poke with low commitment.
2B - A fast low slide, it doesn't go as far as its dashing counterpart but is safer and good in RG battles. There is also a momentum glitch which gives this move a substantial speed and distance boost. This can be performed by pressing 3B in a single frame window (you can start from 6).
5C - Giant multi-hitting air unblockable drill. This move usefulness is very matchup dependant, some characters with small crouching hurtboxes like Ikumi, Mayu, Mio and Nayuki (Asleep) can crouch and even poke underneath this attack.
662B - Very fast long distance sliding low, great for punishing and making your opponent watch their toes.
j6C - Amazing horizontal and upwards vertical reach, use this to defend your airspace. Unfortunetly difficult to convert from unless near the corner.
j5B - Akane's go to air to air move, it has the same startup as her j5A with less active frames but much better horizontal reach. Easy to convert from.
Anti-airs
236A - It is important to consider screen position when using this move, when Akane is cornered the move hits much faster, when the opponent is cornered it will reach them extremely slowly. There are several ways this move can play out against a jump in. The most simple is opponent is hit by Shiiko, depending on their height and distance from Akane it may be possible to combo afterwards. The opponent can hit Akane and then gets hit by Shiiko, this is often the ideal scenario and gives the most opportunity to combo at the expense of some HP. The opponent can hit Shiiko knocking her out for a short time, depending on the attack this can give Akane time to jump up and punish (provided the attack didn't also hit Akane).
236B - The same rules and scenarios as 236A apply. This is slightly slower but does hit lower down where 236A would whiff, this is most useful against hoverdashes and instant airdashes.
Airthrow - A solid anti-air option in EFZ, 2f startup after jumping and beats opponents trying to air RG your anti airs. Gives decent corner carry and time for non-super meter mixups.
RG 5A/5B - This is a strong option select against mid sized air normals and empty mixups. 5A is small horizontally but very fast and has good vertical reach, 5B is almost as fast and trades some vertical reach for horizontal. By buffering the RG and pressing attack can you OS against empty mixups. This OS is defeated by multi-hitting or rapid cancelling attacks which will hit you out of your attack after RG (these kind of attacks are usually quite small or high committal so are vulnerable to other anti-airs). The opponent is also able to counter RG your attack.
RG 236A/236B - Similar to above but 236A hits higher to retaliate against larger attacks or double jump cancels. This can also beat out some multi-hitting attacks by allowing Akane to tank the hit for Shiiko to hit them.
RG FM - If the opponent is close and low enough there is nothing they can do to stop this hitting unless they have an invincible air move.
Reversals
623C - Invincible startup with low hitboxes but fast forward movement. With BIC this can be cancelled into pressure on block or into high damage on hit. Without BIC, on hit it does not lead to a knockdown or a guaranteed airtech trap and essentially resets to neutral. This needless to say move is extremely unsafe on whiff or block without BIC.
641236B (Level 2 Shiiko Super) - Invincible startup, reasonable damage on hit and can be FIC'd to make it safe even if the opponent doesn't block it. Unfortunately does not posses good vertical reach and the opponent will often fall out of the super if they are hit by it in the air.
FM - While this possesses no invincible frames, it does have a 1 frame startup so can challenge close up opponents moves that are not already active.
Akane has some unique options in RG battles by using her assault leap or trick leap specials to bypass the movement restrictions that are usually imposed by RG.

Pressure

Mixup options
TK bad waffle (2369A) is a fast scary overhead that can beat low mash and converts into good damage with IC. 5A, 2A, c5B and 2B are all jump cancellable on block allowing for a fast TK waffle but be sure to watch for RGs. It is also possible to buffer a dashing TK bad waffle using 62369A to threaten overhead from a longer range.
662C is also another overhead that can beat some lows, it is slower and has a more obvious startup but can still catch people off guard. Notibly 662C can be linked into 5A and converted from without IC or super meter.
Akane's ground throw can be IC'd, with BIC in the corner this can lead to very good damage.
2A is Akane's fastest low, you may want to delay it sometimes to catch opponents trying to fuzzy your overhead. It has good range, frame advantage and active frames for a 2A.
2B is a slightly longer range low that is further down the cancel chain, make sure to use this to ensure your opponent keeps blocking low.
If the opponent is blocking low midscreen and spaced correctly or just outside the corner you can attempt to cross up with IAD jAB 2B/662B or IAD jC 2B/662B.
5C is a good mixup tool if the opponent likes to RG a lot due to the lack of absolute guard in EFZ. The very fast multi-hit properties makes it is extremely difficult to RG and in the case that it is RG'd it is very difficult to challenge the followup hits. On hit, you can combo into 623B/C (IC) on reaction.
Pressure resets
66A and 662A have a fast startup, forward movement, low recovery are plus on block so use them to stay close to your opponent and keep the threat of TK bad waffle. 66C is also plus on block but may not put you at as good spacing and has worse startup and recovery.
236B is an interesting reset option but as with anything Shiiko related it's effectiveness depends on your screen position. Providing the opponent is close enough to your corner this can be tight from 5C, 2C and 66C. On block this will give you frame advantage reset and often puts you at a spacing where 662B is plus on block. You can also dash, airdash or trick leap back in for more pressure or a mixup. On RG the opponent is locked in place but free to attack so be cautious when trying to reset and think about the best way to avoid or punish the button they may press.
236C can be used as a frametrap and pressure reset from longer ranges where your opponent may feel safer trying to jump out.
214 assault leap and 412 trick leap can be used to reset pressure. The 5C air sting divekick followup can be plus on block depending on spacing and timing but you need to be ready to IC or counter RG if they RG. On IC you can double jump, airdash, bad waffle or land 2A as a mixup. From assault leap you also can try to throw the opponent with 4C air carrier (which also grabs airborne opponents!) if they commit to trying to RG (or air RG) your 5C air sting divekick. You can use the 236 stun needle followup to bait and punish anti-airs, you can also FIC these needles to airdash in for a pressure reset or combo.
412* trick leap into the 2C pile masher followup can be used to crossup the opponent, is hard to anti-air and will often punish jumps. 2C pile masher can sometimes be plus on block depending on the height it is blocked from.
623B IC can also be used to reset pressure, especially after using a 662B that may be punishable or not spaced to be plus. It is multi-hit and moves forward so can provide some corner carry. You can IC any blocked hit and even IC it to end up in the air for an interesting mixup situation. Be careful of RGs because this move has a 10 frame startup and will often lose in an RG battle despite its special trade prevention invincibility frames. You may want to IC the move you are cancelling from or use 623A IC instead in these scenarios. 623C is the frame 1 invincible EX variant, but you will need BIC to IC this (or an almost fully red RF gauge so you generate enough RF meter to IC back while they block it).

Combos into FM

Corner:
Grab FM / Grab IC FM
5ABB 2C IC 66C FM (rep5-5)
Note:
  • 662B doesnt work on everyone !
  • The combo with 236C (rep2-4) only works at midscreen!
  • For 5B 2C IAD jB its an important combo chain of Akane so you should practice it ! Choose Mio/Misaki/Ayu for dummy its easier to hit them with it. The right height for it to work is around Akane's skirt.

Situational Combos - 2C IC-less Pickups

From deep jump-ins or starters very close to the opponent, it can be possible to perform extended combos without using IC by jump cancelling 2C.

Okizeme

Meterless
IAD jC land 2A, can land on either side for a left/right mixup with 2A depending on spacing and how long you hold the airdash. Delaying slightly can mixup high/low with jC and 2A but make sure you are spaced sufficently to hit jC in front.
If spaced correctly (quite close so that the airdash is cancelled for turn around buttons) or just outside the corner you can attempt to cross up with IAD jAB 2B/662B or IAD jC 2B/662B.
jumpback air IAD jC, safejump setup which can land on either side. jC can crossup here but it is quite difficult so make sure to practice.
669 jC, another safejump setup which can land on either side. jC can crossup here but it is quite difficult so make sure to practice. The advantage of this setup is that you still have a double jump and airdash available on block for further mixups.
jump 9 jA double jump 9 jA fall down jC, yet another safejump setup which can land on either side. This one is quite hard for the opponent to see and is easier due to the speed of falling from a greater height.
Remember from any safejump setup there is is option of timing it early for a low mixup or with respect empty low/throw/overhead.
In the corner 236B Shiiko can be used for safe okizeme. You can block while she hits and are free to mix them up afterwards. You can also leave a tiny gap between the opponent and the corner by airdashing at them after a wallbounce, you can use this to make Shiiko hit crossup by using 412 trick leap and then the 5C divekick followup to pickup a combo.
With IC
If you end a corner combo with 236C and then push the opponent just outside the corner with 662B, the exhaust fumes of the scooter can be used to hide your left/right/high/low mixup
IAD j236A or IAD j236B. By airdashing just behind the opponent and using bad waffle you can do a crossup high and combo or start pressure on block. The B version will be an uncrossup high since it moves backwards during the startup which can be very hard to block correctly. The low mixup is (jC startup) land 2A, the startup of jC looks somewhat like bad waffle which make it even harder to react to.
669 (IA jA whiff) j236*. Similar to above but you can choose to do the bad waffle from higher up which forfeits the low mixup potential for another left/right mixup depending on whether bad waffle has passed through them by the time they wakeup.
late 669 jC (high up) j236A. This can be used to bait some reversals because they will whiff under the jC and on RG it is hard to counterpoke against bad waffle at that height.
214*~236* FIC 412*~2C. A very silly experimental crossup mixup with stun needles and trick leap. You must FIC and trick leap as fast as possible to get the crossup. On hit the 2C pile masher followup will allow you to pickup an OTG combo afterwards.
With Super Meter
From 2C 214214B midscreen setup. Its important to make know the spacing of the B barrier so it will meaty their wakeup and not to cancel from 2C too early or it might combo. You can threaten a left right mixup with trick leap and on hit pickup a combo afterwards.
From 236236* corner setup. You can use 412A~2C and mixup the timing for a left/right mixups. On hit you can OTG pickup with 2A 66C 236A 44 236236 to go straight into this same setup again. You can also IAD as an alternative left/right mixup option more choice of mixups if they guess correctly.
641236C level 3 Shiiko is unblockable and you can punish any reversals depending on the setup. The typical setup from a corner combo is: 66C 641236C backwards hit 66A which puts them into the corner to be meatied by the unblockable. Just setting up 641236C from any closeup knockdown (like a dropped combo) and then meatying with 1A c5B 5C 623B is also an option to keep the opponent stuck in the unblockable. This is not unescapeable or safe from all reversals though so be sure to check your opponents meter and be ready to bait.
