Satomura Akane (里村 茜) is an elegant fighter who uses her shapeshifting hair as a weapon. Her friend Shiko is always eager to help out when called for. Her hair gives her a decent range, and her multiple Leaps give her a sense of unpredictability.

Akane is actually one of the heroines of ONE, a visual novel produced by Tactics in 1998. She is a classmate of Kouhei. When it rains, one will always find Akane at the grassy field, looking as if she was waiting for someone. She is very quiet to the point where you could say she isolates herself from others. During ONE, Kouhei learns the reason for Akane's melancholy, which is connected to his own fate...

Stage: Rainy Field (雨の空き地)

BGM: A Tair

Character-Specific Notes

  • Akane is able to air jump once, and air dash/backstep once.
  • A few of Akane's moves call forth her friend Shiko to the battle. If Shiko is already on-screen, Akane will not be able to use any Shiko-centric moves until Shiko is off-screen again.

The notation for the movelists can be found under Move List Notation (EFZ).

Weak Attacks


  • Akane does a quick slap to the opponent's face.
  • Has very short range compared to most characters. Almost impossible to link two 5As together. Using the 2A would be safer.


  • Akane does a small kick at the opponent's feet.
  • [usefulness]


  • Akane does short diagonal kick that extends more down than forward.
  • [usefulness]


  • Akane does a quick slap to the opponent's face.
  • [usefulness]


  • Akane does a small kick at the opponent's feet.
  • [usefulness]

Medium Attacks

5B (close)

  • Akane tosses her hair forward into the opponent.
  • [usefulness]

5B (far)

  • Akane's hair forms into a blade and stabs directly forward.
  • [usefulness]


  • Akane slides forward feet first as a kick.
  • [usefulness]


  • Akane spins in midair, causing her hair to extend out a good distance horizontally.
  • [usefulness]


  • Akane tosses her hair forward into the opponent. Two trailing shadows repeat the motion.
  • [usefulness]


  • Akane slides forward feet first as a kick.
  • [usefulness]

Strong Attacks


  • Akane's hair forms into a large drill in front of her and spins.
  • Since this move hits multiple times and cannot be guarded normally in the air, it can be an effective move against opponents jumping in.


  • Akane extends her head out almost touching the ground and back again, allowing her hair to cut a wide arc in front of her.
  • This move will knock down the opponent if it connects.


  • Akane's hair forms into a large hammer, which she then swings down hard.
  • [usefulness]


  • Akane puts all of her body into a two-handed shove.
  • This move causes wallbounce when used on airborne opponents. This property makes this move one of Akane's most useful normal moves to use during combos.


  • Akane does a short running hop, turns her hair into a large hammer, and swings down hard.
  • Because of the long startup time for this move, it is really only useful as an overhead attack on a waking opponent.



  • Akane grabs the opponent and does a two-handed shove.
  • This move can be IC cancelled, which makes it very useful in the corner. After the IC cancel, you should do a Dashing Strong attack to wallbounce the opponent and follow up from there.

Air Throw

  • Akane grabs the opponent, somersaults, raises them above her head, and drives them head first into the ground upon landing.
  • [usefulness]

Command Normals

Side Hammer (サイドハンマー)

  • Akane's hair forms into a large hammer, which she then swings forward with good horizontal range.
  • [usefulness]

  • [usefulness]

Air Carrier (エアキャリア)

  • During Akane's Assault Leap, Akane stops somersaulting and reaches out with her hand. On connecting, the opponent is first airthrown, and then launched into the air.

Eterny Specials

Rain of Tears (レインオブティア)

  • Akane launches several hair swords straight up off screen. A moment later, the swords fall aimed at the opponent.
  • The opponent can be hit by both the launched swords going up and the falling swords coming down.
  • The number of swords that fall is directly related to the number of swords Akane launches. If she is interrupted by an opponent during the move and only launches 5 swords, only 5 swords will fall.
  • [usefulness]

  • [usefulness]

Dempshiko Roll (デンプ詩子ロール)

  • A version:
    • Shiko jumps in front of Akane with boxing gloves and performs a Dempsey Roll boxing technique, ending with an uppercut.
    • [usefulness]
  • B version:

    • [usefulness]
  • C version:
    • Shiko jumps in front of Akane with boxing gloves and moves her head in a figure-eight pattern (part of the Dempsey Roll boxing technique) in the background. After a few seconds, Shiko launches herself straight up and slightly forward to do a powerful and unblockable frog uppercut.
    • For the C version, Akane is able to move after Shiko starts moving her head. This time should be used to keep the opponent in the exit path of Shiko's uppercut.

Final Memory

Unpleasant Hell Murder (嫌獄殺)

  • Akane, with one leg raised and bent, slowly slides forward. On connecting, the screen turns black for a few seconds, and then Akane is seen looking away from the downed opponent. If this move drains the last of the opponent's hit points, the kanji for "Unpleasant" (嫌) appears in the background.
  • Even though this move is unblockable, Akane can still be hit out of it very easily.
