Kagura was mostly a “no show” in 1.0 BlazBlue: Central Fiction. Far from his strong, original showing in BlazBlue: Chronophantasma, his CF version just didn’t hold up. Without as much damage as before and fairly predictable mix-ups, he was considered a fairly weak character. However, the tide has considerably shifted in the 2.0 patch, and even if tier-wise he isn’t as powerful as some, he’s certainly a force to be reckoned with.
A very noticeable change for Kagura is the way his combos work now. It’s much easier to tack on more damage to the opponent, for instance, by finishing off more mid-screen combos with his C Dragon Punch. Hentaitop is back with another great combo collection video, which starts with a great explanation of Kagura’s moves and notations. The video is a walkthrough of basic combos into intermediate, finishing off with Overdrive combos.
There’s another stance Kagura tutorial you can look into as well, and check out the combo primer below:
