Heh figured out what to do thanks to you i finally beat yosuke allmost lost tho, lets see how things go with naoto.. (i just waited till he used tentrafoo then jumped and mashed that A to victory)

Surprisingly I cannot beat yosuke with anyone aside from Chie ._. I can just spam her flurry of kicks if I'm lucky that the yosuke charges into my fist x.x;.
Naoto wasn't as hard as Yosuke to me but I still lost to her T_T but least I know what character I should use to get some cheap wins >.>

If ya'll having trouble with Yosuke, you're gonna have a bad time. Yosuke and Naoto aren't too bad. It's Yukiko that starts it up with her unblockable Lv8 fire attacks.
I managed to get up to Aigis with Elizabeth today. It's fairly easy with Elizabeth (as Liz is fairly easy to play, in my opinion) but her low health mixed with the increased damage from enemies really makes me nervous.

I made it up to Kanji, it was the last round, we both had a pixel left and he got me with that goddamn 5K "This'll Hurt"
I was so salty. Even worse because I had Naoto

The thing that makes Kanji a pain is when he does his full-screen lockdown lightning attack, which sometimes he'll use to put you in full blockstun, divegrab down, and Command Grab you on the first possible frame.
I fixed that though by reacting to it with, you guessed it, the pause trick, to see when it's about to come striking down, and quickly running forward, since he'll probably come dive grabbing down afterwards for a free punish.
Yu is also a pretty big pain, but if you use the pause trick, you can easily react to his endless cancel mix-ups, and punish him once he either does Zio D, or Raging Lion/Overhead Slashes over you. If you're in the corner though and being pressured, you'll want to roll out. The time to roll out if when you block a single Raging Lion, a regular one that is, not an EX Version. When you block one Raging Lion in the corner, watch for him to do a second one in the air, if he does that, just roll out as soon as you can see the blockstun for you has ended which you should be able to tell.
Another tip with Labrys and Shabrys, they will almost always start off a round with All-Out Assault, and keep doing this as long as you're pointblank close to them. What you should do is pause trick and watch what she does, if she starts out an allout assault, grab her, and run up to her again, rinse and repeat. If she does a regular normal, just DP...or block it if your character's reversal sucks. Always just block if she has meter though as well, that goes for most of the cast, especially Mitsuru and Chie, let them waste their meter and go back in.
Aaaaand I'm done.
