Has there been any tiering posts before? If there was, then I didn't see it because I was too lazy to go through all the pages /versus/images/icons/smile.gif. Anyway, I believe that if used right, Akira would be #1, however his degree of difficulty would slide him down dramatically. Then again, he gives damage to an opponent like people give pennies to the Salvation Army. Insane! Lion is very easy to use, but because of this, he may be easy to predict. He's very quick with his moves and his juggles are impressive, but he lacks the strength to finish an opponent quickly. Aoi is an amazing bitch with her counters, but can be manipulated to lose control of the match. I'd say she be placed lower in the tiers. Any other thoughts on this?
