Nitori Kawashiro by Minoo Yumemi Okazaki by .DAT Stage: The Untrodden Path by Luneth Music: Strawberry Crisis!! by ????
Crisis in-freaking-deed. Yumemi is what we would call SNK Boss Syndrome, and not in a good way. While I LIKE how .DAT handled his characters, the AIs are just annoying as balls to fight. Yumemi has a LOT of anti-air attacks (as in, you're NOT blocking them in the airs, including a super that she WILL use the moment you are airborne), will almost combo you for 1/4-1/2 your life in one combo, will ALWAYS hit you if you're knocked down with those exploding cars, and if she gets you in the corner? You might as well quit. No, seriously. Unless you HAVE someone that can counter her, which Nitori doesn't, you're done. Jump? Genocide Cutter. Attack? Instant counter with super. Stand there? She will literally just STAND there, waiting for you to do anything at all. I can't stress how long this one single fight took me to actually do. Originally, I WASN'T going to try to win, but after a bit, I decided, screw it, I'm going to try to beat her because she's a jerkface.
Nitori is one of the more unique, and probably harder, characters to use from Minoo, simply for the fact that EVERYTHING she does with her specials requires some amount of power. If you have NO power to do specials, you're going to have a tough time as she NEEDS her specials to get in to do any damage. To top it off, ALL of her special attacks CAN be nullified simply by destroying whatever she sets up. Truly a challenge indeed, but really unique.
