I recently made the jump from E. Ryu to Akuma because it seemed that he was a lot better. What I didn’t know was how much better. Literally EVERYTHING Akuma does is better than E.Ryu, from his setups to his sweep to his c.mp to his fireball game. Akuma is everything I wanted Evil Ryu to be.
So when I look on these forums and I see whining and complaining about how akuma doesn’t do enough stun, or this one setup is char specific, I get a little mad. So here is what I thought of. If YOU want your Akuma to be more solid with fundamentals and basics, try picking up Evil Ryu for a couple of weeks. I guarantee your Akuma will become much more solid.
