Nagamori Mizuka

Introduction

With her strong normals, good reversals, great damage and overwhelming lockdown, Nagamori Mizuka (長森 瑞佳) is widely considered to be the single best character in the game, outside of the last boss Kanna. Her unique ability to set notes, and have them explode when hit with her cello bow not only gives her great space control, but also allows for some extremely strong setups, which are only made stronger by her fast and hard to see overhead. Her trademark corner fortissimo lockdown gives her safe, airtight corner pressure which builds a huge amount of meter and can reset into itself on hit. She is also a character that scales very well with the player, as a beginner can win purely by using her strong normals and fast walk speed, while an expert player has room to grow in learning her more advanced note setups and clean hit combos. If she can be considered to have any weakness, it would be her lack of good long range options, and the difficulty she has converting off mid range hits in the neutral game.

Mizuka is the main heroine of ONE, a visual novel produced by Tactics in 1998. Mizuka is Kouhei's neighbour and childhood friend, and is in the same grade in school. She always worries about Kouhei, acting very maternal-like towards him. Mizuka goes to wake him up every morning, but Kouhei either does not get up or plays some mean tricks to her, causing them to be late for school all the time. During ONE, a pretend confession that Mizuka takes seriously ends up changing things between them forever. And when he discovers inconsistencies in his memories, he struggles to find the truth between him and Mizuka...

Stage: Park on the Path to School (Day) (通学路の公園(昼))

BGM: 8 Cats (8匹のネコ)

Character-Specific Notes

  • Mizuka is able to air jump once, and air dash/backstep once.
  • Several of Mizuka's moves require her cello bow to be in her hands. If Mizuka's bow is thrown, she will not be able to perform those moves until she recovers the bow again.
  • Several of Mizuka's moves create notes on the playing field. These notes can be detonated by various other moves, in order to deal damage. Notes will normally disappear after being detonated or after 10 seconds, whichever comes first.
  • Mizuka's Medium attacks are chained either like 5B(c) 5B(f), or like 2B 5B(f).

  • Mizuka plays her cello, causing a barrier of music to circle around her.
  • This move will knock down the opponent if it hits, and will cause any notes that touch the barrier to detonate.
  • This move cannot be performed if Mizuka's bow is out of her hands. Instead, Mizuka will perform a dashing crouch strong attack.
  • This move is a decent sweep, and can easily cancel into any number of specials or supers. The multi-hit nature of this move makes it very safe from being Recoil Guarded, and is useful to push the opponent away. It is quite weak against aerial attacks though.

  • Mizuka throws her bow out straight forward, like a boomerang. After reaching the maximum distance, the bow becomes harmless and automatically homes in to Mizuka for recovery. While the bow is in the air, any notes the bow touches will detonate. This move cannot be performed if Mizuka's bow is out of her hands.
  • This move is useful projectile. It comes out fast, crosses almost the entire screen, and can detonate far-off notes easily.
B 600 Any 9 30 +3 +1 -
  • Same as the A version, except the bow is thrown diagonally forward-up initially.
  • This move is the anti-air version. It's generally less useful than the A version, but it can be used to hit high-up notes and attack jumping opponents. However, if the bow is Recoil Guarded, the opponent will most likely still be on the offensive, unlike the A version where you at least stop their dash.
C 600 Any 10 16 16 +1 -1 -
  • Similar to the A version, but will start creating notes during the recovery phase, up to a maximum of 5 notes. This version will not detonate notes.
  • This move is quite useful, letting you fill up the screen with notes while go on the offensive.

  • Mizuka plays her cello, creating a special note that has certain unique properties.
  • A: Creates a "forte" (f-note) on the screen. It acts like a regular note, but it will not disappear after detonation. Potentially one of the best supers in the game if used right.
  • B: Creates a treble clef on the screen. It acts like a regular note, but it creates a much larger and much stronger explosion on detonation.
  • C: Creates a triplet on the screen. It bounces forward, creating sets of 3 normal notes at regular intervals until it goes off the screen. It cannot be detonated.
  • This move cannot be performed if Mizuka's bow is out of her hands.
  • This super uses only 1 Level of SP for all 3 versions.

  • Mizuka clutches her chest as if in pain, keels over as symbols start to appear around her, and then screams causing the screen to fade into white. Afterwards, the opponent is completely frozen and vulnerable for about 10 seconds.
  • Mizuka can be interrupted during the startup time for this move. The opponent must hit Mizuka before she screams in order to interrupt the move.
  • This move causes all of the notes in the environment to detonate without making them disappear.

Strategy

Take any opportunity you get to create notes around the opponent.

If you are waking up and you believe that the opponent is going to attack, Slash & Prologue C version is a good wakeup to use.

If you manage to knock down the opponent in the corner, laying an f-note (Tone & Setup+ A version) would be a good idea.

Fun with Notes

Standard Corner Note: This is the most basic note setup that you should learn. While the opponent is downed in the corner, create a note on top of them (214A). From this position, you have the options of attacking low with 2A or 5A, attacking high with 6B, throwing them, or detonating the note with 623A. If you detonate the note, you will retain frame advantage and have a second try to break the opponent's guard.

Deadly Note Crossover: While next to a downed opponent, create a note right on top of them (214A), and just before they wake up, perform an A version Slash & Prologue (623A) to detonate the note. With correct timing, you will either attack them as they stand up, forcing them to block as expected (away from your original position), or whiff and land on the opposite side of the opponent, forcing them to block unnaturally (towards your original position).

Alternatively, the A version Smash & Sympathy (412A) can be used instead, if the 623 motion is too difficult. Also, the B version Tone & Setup+ (214214B) can be used instead, for extra damage.

Follow-up Bow: While far from the opponent, create a note far away (214B), throw the bow high up (236B), and dash toward the opponent. If the opponent tries to be offensive and punish you for that "missed" bow, they will be surprised when the bow loops back behind you and detonates that note on it's way back to you, launching the opponent for an aerial assault.

Combos

(Tentative, these are probably not optimal) (You might forgo j.623A for airdash, or j.ABC 623A for 8 j.A to tech trap maybe. I don't know how this game works though)

fullscreen/midscreen meterless bnb: 2AB(B)C 214B dash forward. <- Lets you do dumb note mixups

fullscreen note bnb: 214A hits > 5C j.B ad j.A j.B 66C j.ABC j.ABC 623A (you can opt to go for 2C instead of air combo if you want to place notes I think)

fullscreen BIC bnb: buttons > 623A BIC j.B ad j.A j.B land (66C as late as possible) j.B ad j.B j.C j.ABC j.ABC 623A


corner bnb: 2A 2B 2C 214A

corner bnb: 2C 5ABC j.ABC j.ABC 623A -you can hit confirm from a close A or B.

corner IC bnb: buttons 2C 623A IC j.B ad j.B j.C 66B 2A 5AA 5BB 5C j.ABC j.ABC 632A

corner BIC bnb: 2ABC 623A BIC [j.BC 5BC] j.ABC j.ABC 623A
