Misaka Shiori

Introduction

Misaka Shiori (美坂 栞) might look like a zoner at first glance, but she is actually a very versatile character who can fit many different roles. Her ice cream beam and ice block specials allow her to pester the opponent from far away, and can make it very hard for anyone to get close. Her rushdown-oriented air normals and dash attacks also give her plenty of ways to get her own pressure started. In the corner she can open people up with endless frame traps and one of the best throws in the game, both leading to high damage combos. These aspects can further be enhanced by summoning a snowman, which helps her out by providing cover in neutral and allows for extended blockstrings after a knockdown. Add in fairly safe reversal options and you have a character who can deal with almost any situation.

Shiori is one of the heroines of Kanon, a visual novel produced by Key in 1999. She is a first-year student at the high school that Yuiichi attends, but has been absent for a long time due to her prolonged cold. Shiori regularly hangs around the school's courtyard during school hours, simply standing there for long periods of time. During Kanon, Yuiichi takes Shiori out and starts getting close to her, but soon finds out that her sickness is not what it seems...

Stage: Snowy Park (Night) (雪の公園(夜))

BGM: Behind that smile (笑顔の向こう側に)

Character-Specific Notes

  • Shiori is able to air jump once, and air dash/backstep twice.
  • Shiori's Medium attacks are chained either like 5B(c) 5B(f), or like 5B(c) 2B.
  • If Shiori uses her "A sure way to win snowball fights" move, a "Shield" gauge appears below her life gauge, indicating the time left before the shield disappears. While Shiori has her shield, she becomes completely immune to all projectile attacks.

  • Shiori poses with her hand out forwards, then generates a large horizontal tornado of wind. If it hits the opponent, Shiori will toss the frozen opponent into the air, and then uppercut straight through the opponent, ice and all, as it falls. Additionally, if the opponent blocks the tornado on the ground, the move will chip an incredible 2800 damage off, disregarding all forms of damage and defence multipliers.
  • This move can be quite an effective tool to remove the last 1/3 of the opponent's life, which usually takes a long time due to the Guts damage multiplier.

Strategy

Overview

Shiori boasts a number of classic zoner tools, normals with excellent frame data and range, and reversals that, with at least red IC, are fully invulnerable until active and will trade at worst. She can play both a very lame keepaway game, or use her plus frames on her dash normals to play an oppressive rushdown game. Her throw is considered one of the best in the game due to its ability to meterlessly combo from it. Her supers vary in usefulness, but Shiori can use a few of them to meter dump in most combos for a very good damage increase and hard knockdown.

Zoning

Shiori has a plethora of zoning tools, including a screen-long beam, a falling glacier, air knives that cover a wide area, an antiair super, and a snowman that can also fire an ice beam. Shiori can cover all methods of approach by smartly using these tools.
236/j236
  • Your classic zoner tool, a full screen ice beam. Jump version retains momentum and will rise and fall with Shiori. Freezes the opponent on hit for a fixed amount of time. Use this time to set up more zoning tools, like beam snowman. Use this after summoning beam snowman for a quick way to fill the screen with obstacles. Fairly long recovery time, so don't whiff this on the ground.
j412
  • Shiori throws out a couple of blades/boxcutters at a downwards angle. B version is slower to come out but recovers faster and keeps Shiori airborne longer. Can act out of this any way you would be able to from a normal jump; for example, 8 j412A 8 j412A 66 j412A 44 j412A j412A etc. Useful for stalling for meter or to annoy opponent. Only one hit per boxcutter, but fairly safe to just throw out. Can combo into j236A if you catch an airborne opponent with them.
412
  • Shiori raises her hand and causes a glacier to fall down. Will cause hard knockdown. A niche tool that can catch opponents when they double jump to avoid Shiori's other tools. If you don't have a snowman out, getting a hit with this move is your cue to do so. You won't use this as much as the others, but the threat of it is very important to her gameplan.
j214B
  • A good technique to get used to is the tk j214B snowman. Input 214 and then quickly input 7B to summon an ice beam snowman very close to the ground. Shiori can act out of the summon as she would a normal jump, so you can follow up with normals, ice beams, air dashes, or air jumps. Ideally, you'll always want to have a beam snowman out. Note that the snowman can be hit to destroy it, so maneuvering to sandwich the opponent is a good tactic. If the opponent is too aggro on the snowman, you can use the time they take to hunt it down to escape or try to snipe them with ice beam. A random hit from the beam snowman allows you to dash across the screen and get a full combo. It is one of Shiori's best tools, abuse it.
Note
  • These tools have a weakness to air RG, and an opponent that can reliably air RG each option becomes a major threat to this play style. The best tactic against this is to mix up your zoning tools with a dash up air throw. Shiori's air throw hitbox is fairly average, but a good Shiori can make it feel like it's way larger than it should be.
  • Additionally, maneuvering around the screen to avoid the opponent becomes very useful. Shiori's 662B gives her a large boost of momentum, and she can dash under most characters in the air to either escape or to attack from the other side. With all of these tools and mobility, Shiori can force most opponents to play her game.

Rushdown

Most of Shiori's combos can carry the opponent to the corner, or most of the way there. From there, she can start on her rushdown game. Shiori's dash normals have great frame data and her normals are quick and have good hitboxes. The main downside is that 2A is not a low, but 2B more than makes up for it. The combination of these allow Shiori to also run a nasty tick throw game, leading to good damage since she can combo off of it in the corner. Even if the opponent isn't in the corner, Shiori has some nice mixups midscreen off a throw.
Dash Pressure
  • All of Shiori's useful dash normals (66A 662A 662B) are plus on block, allowing Shiori to not only be safe on block, but since her 2A and 5A are 4 and 5 frames startup, respectively, the opponent will need a 3 or 4 frame DP or normal in order to even challenge her. This allows her to continuously harrass the opponent until they can reliably start RGing her dash normals. Shiori's pressure ends when she gets RGed on a dash move. You can attempt to 623C out of this to crush the opponent's mash, but it is not suggested most of the time.
Normals
  • Shiori's normals are also all plus on block, allowing her to move from normals to dash pressure and back to normals freely and safely. On oki, 5B will crush any reversals that are only high/low invulnerable, but will lose to full invulnerable moves. If 5B is RGed, chaining it immediately into 2B (5 frames) will crush most mash, as the opponent will need a 4frame DP or normal (5f-1f[rg] = 4f) to trade, and due to RG mechanics, no trades are allowed after RG. Get used to the RG sound or visual and always autopilot into 2B, as it is also plus and leads back into her pressure. 5C is notable in that Shiori leans back, so you can use this to dodge some moves that would otherwise hit you. Additionally, it is jump cancelable on block, so you can go into IAD pressure, or airdash back into j236A or j214B.
Tick Throws
  • At some point, the opponent is going to stop pressing buttons against anything that isn't RGing a dash move. This opens them up to tick throws, which Shiori excels at. See the combo section for a sample corner no-IC and BIC version of her throw combo.

Reversals

Shiori, despite having good rushdown and very good zoning, also boasts a selection of very good reversals.
623C (IC)
  • Fully invulnerable until active, this move will trade with meaties. Most of the time meaties won't knock down, so you can always input 2A 5B after the first hit to make sure that you'll confirm if it trades. If the opponent RGs or blocks, they will be pushed back and likely unable to punish 623C. Even if the opponent baits your 623C, the move lingers after the animation is done, catching opponents off guard until they become used to the timing. To be extra safe, you can IC this when you start with BIC and 5B into a full combo.
641236A (IC)
  • This super is invulnerable until the first active frame, meaning that at worst, it will trade. This makes it a very good tool for a reversal, and becomes meterlessly confirmable on trade. If you don't plan on ICing this move, always press 2A 5B or just 5B to confirm into a full combo. On IC, you can wait for the opponent to fall and 5B into a full combo as well.

Supers

214214
  • Not a very useful super. Can be used in very fancy combos for some extra damage and the freeze property.
641236
  • In addition to the above information in the Reversal section, tornado is also air unblockable and its hits are fully random. This makes it an excellent antiair as well, since the opponent cannot know when each hit will arrive they will not know exactly when to RG. IC this to convert into a full combo.
j2141236
  • Shiori tends to not need higher levels of supers, so meter dumping a level one super at the end of combos is very beneficial. This super will cause hard knockdown as well as adding in a minimum of 1k damage to any combo, making it the best candidate for meter dumping. If you have the meter, absolutely use it on this.
  • With BIC, this also becomes the easiest way to score extremely high damage in the corner off a tick throw. See the combo section for how to do this.
236236B~C
  • Shiori's Final Memory (FM) has a very long startup time, but will do very good damage on hit, and over 25% of the enemy's health bar on block through tick damage. Feel free to toss this out on oki just for the tick damage. Using snowman summon into FIC, you can combo into her FM as well. See the combo section for how to do this.

Mixups & Okizeme

Midscreen
j412B
  • Off of a throw or a 2C midscreen, Shiori can do a 668 j412B IC against some characters to create a left/right mixup. Depending on how late the j412B was input will decide on which side the knives hit. The IC is necessary for a followup combo.
j214B
  • This one is mostly used off a throw. Doing 669 j214B will stop most of Shiori's momentum. Placing the snowman later or earlier will decide on which side she lands. Followup with a 2B 5C and confirm into combo if it hits.
j214C
  • Again, off a midscreen throw, Shiori can IAD j214C. This will give her a lot of momentum and place her behind the enemy. From here, she can jump and either let the opponent cross under or backdash to keep them on the same side. EFZ has crossup protection when the opponent is kept in blockstun, but the hits of j214C are spaced far enough apart that crossup protection does not work. This one is very hard to confirm into a combo, but it is doable.
Corner
66C
  • Shiori's 66C is an overhead, but on a raw hit will just knockdown the opponent. However, with a well timed 214A (punch snowman), you can convert this into a full combo. For example: 214 2A 5A (tiny wait) 66C (snowman hits) j412A 5B jB 66 jAB 5B2B 5C jBC(3) j2141236A is a combo that can work on a good number of the cast and does good damage. Mix up with 662B to keep the opponent guessing.
Instant Overhead
  • Shiori's jB has a very good downwards angle that can hit standing opponents easily. You can abuse this using ice physics, as EFZ's system forces the opponent into 1f of standing animation after recovering from a freeze. This creates a fuzzy situation as the opponent's low guard will apply to their standing state. You'll want a j214B or a 214A to back you up and allow you to combo your instant jB. See the combo section for an example.
  • Inputting it as soon as possible also allows her to hit a small selection of the cast (Mizuka, Misuzu, Nayuki, Akiko, and Kanna) even when they are crouching. This allows her to: 214A (punch snowman) 2A 5A (tiny delay) (instant)jB 66 (snowman hits) jB land (snowman hits) 5C jBC(3) 5BBC jBC(3) j2141236A for very good damage. Mizuka and Misuzu must be done frame perfectly, but the other three have some leniency. See the combo section for a replay of this.
