Maori Kasuga

Profile

The scion of a family who has dealt with the spiritual plane for untold generations, Maori is the most powerful of the four sisters who currently comprise the Kasuga family. Known for its ability to fight and subdue demons, the Kasuga family frequently assists the Celestial Union with demon-related matters. Although the four Kasuga sisters spend most of their time tending the family shrine, they are occasionally called upon by the Union to travel throughout the Kantou region to deal with supernatural emergencies.

Maori is the de facto matriarch of the family and is seen by those around her as very motherly. She is often busy entertaining her younger twin sisters, who always seem to want to play. And though she has very little free time, she values her time spent at school, especially her after-school club activities.

A kind and compassionate person, she is always friendly to those around her and is seen as absolutely steadfast and reliable by her friends. She is currently allied with the Celestial Union and is helping them deal with the planar rifts that periodically pop up around the country. Like the Union, she is suspicious of Petra, who seems to be intent on continuing the research done by the Drexler Institute.

Overview

Setplay monster, decent zoner and mid range aggression.

Offensive tools:

  • 421C will guard crush and lead to a combo. Remember this, it is very useful in conjunction with her other moves
  • 2E, 5E, 421X, 623X are all air unblockable
  • 22A is an extremely fast overhead that is near unreactable.
  • Combine the above with 3A/623C for lows. 623C EFC 22A/623C is a very strong and fairly safe mixup to setup.
  • j.623X leaves a delayed projectile on the ground that won't go away on hit, which can provide some amount of insurance.

Defensive tools:

  • j.B is very disjointed and helps to cover the space in front of you and keep people from homing in.
  • 5C upper-body clash during start-up, allowing you to anti air fairly safely.
  • 421A is extremely fast and guaranteed to come out, it will also move maori out of the way very quickly. Just be careful since it doesn't hit that high up, and she is very vulnerable after!
  • 22A is also guaranteed to come out after some time, albeit hits in a smaller area and is not invuln. It can be a worthy alternative to 421A in the right circumstances.
  • 421A+B is full invuln on startup and guaranteed to come out. When in a pinch it makes for a fairly good reversal, especially with 6GC 421A+B.

Attack a second time with the top before dropping it. Pressing a different button on this move actually changes the direction of where the top goes. So pressing C in Sekka no Mai would have made it go back to Maori, but if this move misses and A was pressed to do it, the top would go away from her.
