Create Attacks by Inputting Commands!!
When you attack from the opponent's side, it is possible to approach him
and, with a combination of the attack button and the directional pad,
produce a command attack of great power. Below are the 5 kinds of
+ Launch Attack
This drives and repels the opponent straight into the sky. When this
happens in the air, the attack sends the enemy further up in the air.
+ Knock Down Attack
This drops and hits an enemy, who is in the air, to the ground. When used
on an enemy who is already on the ground, you follow and pound him further
into the surface.
+ "Blow-Away" Attack
This is a strong attack that blows your opponent a long way away. Because
the enemy goes flying horizontally, you can pursue him and continue
attacking. The commands above are used if your allies are safely on the
right hand side of the screen. If they are to the left, the command
becomes + button.
+ Revolution Rush (ascending)
While you send forth a continuous stream of koudan, you revolve around
your opponent. Immediately you will rise into the sky together with the
+ Revolution Rush (descending)
This attack occurs in the opposite direction of the rising rush. Still,
with regards to the rush, you can make it occur by inputting the commands
during an attack with the button.
(Secret) Attack Techniques

When you continuously shoot with the attack button, there will come a time
when the enemy is unguarded. When your attack hits, before it is over,
start make a further attack with either the Revolution Rush attack
introduced on pg. 11 or the + button Rush attack.
Don't Take a Rest While the Enemy is Chaining Attacks!
Immediately after your Command attack has been produced, press the
directional pad in the direction of the enemy and your character will turn
and move toward the enemy at top speed. When you've gotten near the enemy
do one of the Command attacks on pg. 11. It is possible to continue
attacking without giving the enemy a chance to counterattack. Also don't
create any useless distance between yourself and the enemy. If you make
good use of this, you can proceed with the battle advantageously.
