    At least with Vatista, the amount of time you have to hold up in that dive kick is smaller when compared with her other charge moves.

    Holy crap, learning the Rion Seth combo is a lot harder than I thought it was going to be. I was wondering why I would ever choose to do that combo as opposed to the 5B-5CC-214[C]-66C-(run up)- j.A-j.B-j.C-j.214A(land)-214B-then end with orb for pressure. But I guess his combo is better because they have to wake up with orb. Mine has them TECHING in the air to orb. The thing with Rion's combo is that I keep messing up the teleport down to get them in time. :(

    Since I'm the sort of idiot that can't just stick to one game I ended up buying UNIEL on Steam. And I have absolutely no idea what's going on. Seems fun though.

    shame more people don't play this, seems like a nice mix between SF and anime games

    It's not exactly a high profile title, so it's unsurprising that there are so few people playing this. Sadly. I want to laser people in the face with Vatista. And flash kick people with Vatista. And just play Vatista in general. She's one of the most interesting zoners I can think of, and her combos are pretty fun as well.

    Hahahaha, same here, I also play Vatista, wich is interesting because I never played a charge character before. I'm still struggling with the charges and the general spacing of the game, but she makes everything worth.

    @FatalSeabass I think I already played you in rankeds (or another player named FatalSeabass that uses Akatsuki). I play under the name of Raging_Cacodemon on Steam.

    Yep, I definitely remember you. You use Orie or Vatista IIRC.

    Vatista is a rather unconventional charge character though. She's got the only f,b-charge move I've ever seen (and u,d, but that move's not as useful outside combos). Which is great as well since it means people have to respect your long range game even when most characters wouldn't have charge. I lost count of how many times I AA flashkicked someone, threw a fullscreen fireball as bait, and used C laser to punish them if they answered with a fireball of their own. And every time I did it, I got this warm and fuzzy feeling inside. =3
    Her diamonds are also a very interesting move for its applications in neutral, as well as in combos and her corner trap obviously. And the rest of her game compliments her zoning/space control really well. Just an overall well-designed character, and almost exactly the sort of character I was looking for.

    Admittedly I don't quite understand how to AA with her. What do people use other than flash kick and air-to-airs? 5B or 2B for certain spacings? 5A?

    (I personally can't answer anything about this game given it's one of the many recent games I've been unable to play as of yet, so someone else will have to. Sorry.)

    It feels weird to start paying attention to this game again after a year and come back not only to a new version of the game where Akatsuki is no longer perhaps the worst character in the game, but also come back to two new original characters; I like Phonon far more than Mika though. I wonder if they'll ever get around to ever trying to add Filia or if that was just a teasing shout-out, even though she'd have to work completely differently in this engine even if they "fixed" the cross-up issue that the first version of the game had in this latest version, which I'm unsure if they did.

    Speaking of changes, thanks for posting this.

    Although it doesn't matter all that much, I'm curious if anyone knows if the character diagram at 01:49:21 is the general consensus for the game as a whole or just for the machine that they're playing on. If it's the former, then it's interesting to see that Akatsuki rose that far while Carmine fell that far. A bit disappointing to see Yuzuriha at dead last, though not overly surprising. It's also a bit disappointing to see Spider-Brat apparently still as one of the best characters in the game, though that's not surprising either; furthermore, it is slightly obnoxious that apparently Byakuya has only advantaged match-ups.

    Still, if the worst match-up in the entire game is apparently only 3.7 to 6.3 in the form of Yuzuriha vs. Orie, then this game is far more balanced than most other games are, especially since most of Byakuya's matches are only slightly advantages rather than 6 to 4 or more matches all-around.

    Her divekick B can be used as a mixup tool, according to Mizuumi wiki:

    "Despite being a charge move, [8]2B can function as an instant overhead if the charge is hidden in another jump/other moves. With j.C, she can perform a high-low-high mixup between j.C > [8]2B, j.C > 2C, and j.C > land > [8]2B. You can also set this up by using j.A to explode a nearby Fragmentum and then mixing up between j.C > 2C and j.C > land > [8]2B (assuming the explosion is blocked). Note that at low altitudes, most characters can hit Vatista out of [8]2B on reaction with a simple 5A, so don't get predictable with this."

    http://wiki.mizuumi.net/w/Under_Night_In-Birth/Vatista

    For AA 2B is better than 5B because she lowers her hurtbox. 5A can easily lead into combos and you can also use 5C if you aren't very close to the opponent

    Yeah, I mean, [8],2B has its uses. It's just not as useful as the laser, which is a positively great move.

    I also realized there's actual charge partitioning in this game, which makes Vatista even more technical than I thought.

    I hope Vatista's nonsensically difficult bread and butter is actually easy to do now. All her charge motion nonsense was a joke compared to the utter lunacy the game made you go through for a bread and butter. I honestly wish her gems didn't operate like that to be honest.

    Melty Blood is a lot more aggressive than this game. At a high level this game gets pretty defensive though it seems outside vatista I don't see too many down back fests. The throw break window is massive, throw OS is very powerful and takes a pretty hard commit to bait. Stagger pressure can be tricky though, but offense is more tame here than it is in melty, BB, or GG.

    This game is a pretty good anime fighter to get into if you come from SF because it isn't terribly RTSD focused.

    UNIB is very anime and yet it isnt an airdasher, so you get the chain combos but you still have to have good footsies and fundamentals.

    Its honestly the game you should be playing if you are transitioning from SF.

    But nobodys gonna fuckin do that.

    So it's confirmed console is coming with balance changes, lots of new moves for characters. Lot of people getting charged variations of existing specials. Eltnum getting ricochet bullets like in Melty. They had a tourney this week and they brought console dev kit somewhere in japan and uniel discord has a bunch of changes people were posting, nothing official yet though.

    UNI and Aquapazza are the most boring titles I know, due to being slow-paced and no combo escape system.

    EDIT: Don't get me wrong, I like slow-paced games with no combo escape system.

    Also, it seems that the auto-combo has been removed in UNIst, I've seen Linne, Carmine, Yuzuriha and Nanase do 5A>5A on block. Would be nice if it's true. And Erika looks so coooool!

    I respectfully disagree. Most of the openings of the game(or games) have been kind of boring to me. Good music but everything else could be throw in with any anime or anime game and look exactly the same. This new opening you posted looks much better. First looking at it made me feel weird but then the use of sprites alongside anime made it feel more like a fighting game opening than an anime one and the smoother frame rates really feel nice compared to the other openings that serve as one of the few weak points of an otherwise excellent fighting game.~

    I adore this game I do I just wished it had not taken so long to port the arcade content. The fact that it is though is a wonderful thing though and I am glad Akatsuki will be much better now if no terrible changes are made to him prior to his release. I wonder if there will be anymore characters added prior to release?
    I could care less because all I want is for the content to have a PC release like before.

    This is not just port but additional cotent such mission, lenthgy story mode, more characters and ballance adjustment.

    The sprite work they do takes alot of time ontop of audio work, and gameplay stuff.

    Not really true, smart steer benefit characters with negative edge moves and allow characterd to reuse certain normal that were use prior to the smart steer.

    But info been circulating that its been remove in this port.
