Sakura's st.mp - b.hp should combo at max distance too. We'll have to get used to cr.mk instead of b.hp if she's not close enough sigh.
Her buttons in neutral sucks except for cr.lk and st.hk imo.
And I don't think I've had a lag free game since the start of AE, even setting my fights for 4-5 bars only. Yeah it's frustrating to learn a new character with all those gold Kens around.
