Ok now its my turn to ask a question, though I’m not sure what the point is since even if the answer is in the affirmative, it wont be something that I can execute :sad:
First of all, you have to know what I mean by the 2 hit Roundhouse hurricane juggle. It happens when you do the hurricane while the other guy is next to you, but slightly airborne. What happens is that the first hit of the hurricane gets them, but then they dont get hit anymore and are in the air until they get juggled by the last hit of the hurricane. Now for a blatant example, if you get this on someone in the corner, you can easily land a far Fierce or Roundhouse for a third hit. Note this only works if the hurricane was the only thing used in the juggle i.e. you didn’t set them up with with an lk hurricane first or something. If you did, then doing a taunt after the juggle is safe - I have mentioned this in quite a few of my other posts.
Clear on that? Ok, now something to note before the actual question. Ken can juggle Q with a dragon without having to kara. So in theory, if Akuma could get a player with a kara dragon in any specific scenario, then he should be able to get Q in the same scenario without having to kara the dragon right?
I was watching a casual vid between a Q and Akuma - between two top Japanese players. Akuma got the two hit hurricane juggle in mid screen, then DASHED FORWARD and landed a FIERCE DRAGON for all 3 hits making 5 hits in total. He had two such chances and landed it both times.
Now what if the character wasn’t Q? Lets say the dragon had to be kara’d. Akuma can ONLY do kara dragon off f+mp. I’m wondering if doing that would make the combo connect, BECAUSE WHY ELSE DO I ALWAYS SEE JAPANESE AKUMA PLAYERS DASH UP AFTER THE 2 HIT JUGGLE AND DO F+MP? Its not like there is any way in hell that any of those hits will actually connect, and its not exactly the best move for building bar. Maybe position themselves? I dunno - I’m inclined to think that a kara dragon can indeed be done there.
But again, I have never been able to do a kara dragon with akuma. Anyone? If this combo does indeed work, I might try and get his kara dragon down…
