Canned ShRm from f,b+P+G?

    I've heard that After the f,b+P+G Akira can land a ShRm (canned ShRm???) everytime :meh: I mean, I know that he can do that ;-), but is it guaranteed to hit? The CPU with guard turned on gets hit by it, but sometimes it lets in some weird things which are not guaranteed (still, I don't have anyone to test this with). Is there any struggling or such thing possible in this case? Thanks for any info ^_^

    I'm pretty sure Akira has only 3 options after the pull in throw and all of them aren't guaranteed. I'm also not sure what you mean by canned Shrm...are you referring to f,b+P+G~P+K? Because that can be blocked with f+G. The other canned options are to dodge up or down which could be followed with a reverse bodycheck. Those can be blocked by hitting the direction of the dodge+G. So if you tried this by setting the CPU to block he will not block it because the CPU isn't pressing f+G.

    Nope, I meant ShRm, the whole sequence would look like this: f,b+P+G , FC,p+P+K - After f,b+P+G Akira goes to FC, so ShRm can come out right after that - will it connect on a blocking opponent?

    No it won't connect on anyone simply holding Guard. Even the dashing elbow (f,f+P), which executes faster than the ShRm (D,f+P+K) isn't guaranteed after a f,b+P+G.

    If you consult the command lists, you'll see Akira only has 5 frames advantage after this throw, which doesn't guarantee anything, but certainly puts him in a favourable, and crouching, position!

    To test similar situations in future, you can record the CPU to perform the action then play it back on yourself to see if you can successfully guard, escape, or whatever.
