After it’s all blocked, Sakura doesn’t have many buttons that will reach, but s HK can and crush counters. c MK doesn’t reach. s LK is a great button in general.
The combos in v trigger 1 are still damaging and Sakura’s v trigger 1 fireball is plus on block. But personally I prefer v trigger 2 because Sakura gets EX DPs from it.
j HK, s MP, b+HP, activate v trigger 2, s HP, QCB+HK cancelled into v skill kick, HP DP, Super!
