Amane Nishiki is a fairly niche character in the BlazBlue series. His first appearance in BlazBlue: Chronophantasma wasn’t the most spectacular despite his affinity for drama and the stage. While he used to be a relatively low-tier character, the drill and chip-damage specialist received a more well-rounded toolset in Central Fiction.
Eshi, also known as “One Punch Amane,” compiled a useful overview where he explains some of Amane’s options for midscreen okizeme, or wake-up pressure. Since Amane is a stronger character now, the guide is also helpful for those who don’t plan on using this character, as the knowledge of his options could serve well in tournament play. Eshi lists a few ways to get around Amane’s attacks and keep in mind that many characters could have escape tools specific to them.
To study Amane in action, Eshi also recorded a long set with commentary that explains his gameplay flow and strategy:
