My duty is to be of use to my master.

Profile

Name: Anna

Debuted in: Gekkou no Carnevale

Voice Actor: Miyabi Himeno

Introduction: An automata that was found in the dumpster with no memory. Even though she is artificial, she has a hard time learning, takes her time, and is clumsy, but she has a hard-to-hate personality. When she engages in battle, she wields silver stakes called Vernier, as they take shape like wings.

Summary

Primarily a zoner. Has a hover dash similar to I-no or Morrigan. Although her zoning is an important part of how she is played, in close combat, she has a strong high/low mixup due to her hover dash. As a downside, her projectiles can easily be dealt with via escape action or vanishing guard. Since she has no meterless invincible reversal, she has limited defensive options in close combat


Pros

  • Because her C normals are projectiles, it is easy to lock down opponents from a distance
  • In close combat, you can do an instant overhead thanks to the hover dash
  • Can use projectiles for okizeme


Cons

  • Your projectile normals have low priority, so it is easy for the opponent to evade it or build meter from blocking them
  • Outside of the corner, her basic combo damage is low without the use of meter and / or assists
  • Her Lethal Blaze is a counter

Variable Rush

All Variable Rushes allow you to do a sequence of attacks depending on if you hit the A, B, or C button. If you press nothing, the VR will end. If your VR is blocked, you have the option to press nothing, or keep attacking. Even if you keep attacking, you could still stop at any time, assuming you don't execute the final attack.

Depending on what combination of buttons you use, you can come up with some useful strings.


CE

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv
Varies HLA TODO - - -

Invincible lunge towards opponent

  • A route: Damage oriented. Leads to an advantageous, but not as good as other routes. Grants a knockdown
  • B route: Launches opponent into air and locks them into location, allowing for an air combo
  • C route: Launches opponent with knife, then knives drop down covering almost the entire screen
    • No tracking jump after launch, so use an assist / [2]8X to combo after or to use setplay

3600 + 7000
  • Knives: HLA
  • Charge Attack: UNB
TODO - - -

Counters an attack, which then releases large barrage of knives and Anna charges into opponent

  • Counter attack, so harder to incorporate into combos
  • Even if counter is successful, knife attack is slow, so opponent may be able to guard based on how long the recovery was on the initial attack. Fortunately, the charge is fast and unblockable
    • Opponent can super jump over the charge attack
  • Air OK

Combos

Please check out the Notation section, for help on understanding how to read and write combos!


Meterless

  • 2B 2E Oki
  • 2B 2E 623X
  • 5B 6A jC 6D jE
  • 5B 6A IAD jA jB 236A
    • for some reason you have to iad with 866 instead of 9 6 during this combo.
  • grab 6D 2B 2E

Corner

The 6A is the most important part of these combos, so you don’t even really need to do the throw starter as long as you land a 6A to begin the route

  • Throw > (5D) > 5B > 6A (jc) > j.C > j.236C > land > j.C > j.236A > 623B / 623C
  • Throw > (5D) > 5B > 6A > 5E > d.[2]8A > d.41236C > 5[E] > d.[2]8B > 5E / 623B

Metered

  • 2B 2E 623AB 5E 5C / 236AB / CE
    • Last hit of CE is up to you, depending on your resources available
  • 2B 2E ABC 623C(1) > j6D jB land 623B(1) j6D jB land 623A j6D jB land 623AB 5E 5C / 236AB / CE

  • (corner)2B > 2E > Mugen > 5B > 5E >kaigen >5E >kaigen hits >236236B+C

mostly impractical combos, due to being hard to set up and Mugen being a really weird assist, that no one uses in serious matches

Strategy

Primarily focus on using your double jump and cancel into air escape action to avoid getting hit. Whileescaping in the air, you have a wide range of ranged attacks to use before you have to enter close combat. When in close quarters, f.B is a good tool to use. Approach the opponent with your hover dash and mix them up with instant overheads, empty dash low 2B, throws, et cetera.

Level 3 is great against aggressive opponents on hard reads. and moves you know will hit but with delay such as dragon and zombie assists.

214x is good against projectiles and most assists on read.
