So, it seems like Mitsuru can just stay out of S. Lab's range and break the persona if you try to pressure her with it. Any suggestions?
Try using 8C... Since it stays underground, you shouldn't get your persona broken while attacking. 236C+D works well too if you have the meter, since it clears a lot of ground space.
This is one of the matchups where I try to get in with SLab and only let Asterius do stuff when I can pressure Mitsuru with pokes.
I can't even properly convey how much this matchup frustrates me. She's a poking god, and we're slow as hell. Not to mention she has a decent distance wall with Bufula, and her goddamned DP makes everything difficult.
I've managed to squeeze out a few wins by making her act (IE with a fullscreen buffalo hammer to make her jump. Yes I consider it a small victory that I made her jump >.>) and I find most of my damage comes off of 236C (I start it up, then go in and block and pray) but other than that, I really don't know what to do here.

Be aware of your spacing with your persona so she can't 5D/j.D it anytime she wants. 5D/j.D, Drill, and j.[B] make this match up a bit more difficult but it's easily winnable.
Playing Shabrys is suffering. Bull is best character.
