1. Author's Note
----------
Hello there, readers! Welcome to my Xenosaga Episode II Double Tech Guide! The 
Techs are Japanese so we'll try to cover up some translations and descriptions 
just for you! So just sit in the front of the computer, eyes on the Guide and 
read! Enjoy!


----------
2. Why bother making this Guide?
----------
You might wonder, no? Making this short Guide for nothing? Well, actually I'm 
liking the game but when it comes to Japanese conversations, you just sit in 
the couch, drooling and thinking "Ha? I don't understand."  and just keep 
playing it without understanding! For me, I'm here making the Guide not just 
for those who understand Japanese, it's for everyone!

----------
3. How is it formed?
----------
So, how does the Tech Guide form? Here are some parts:

Sample:

-----
Skill [1]
(2 persons who will use the Tech) [2]
Single/All (Enemy or Ally) [3]
Effect [4]
Translated(or US) Name [5]
-----

Description:

Dialogue: [6]


[1] Name of Skill
[2] 2 persons who will use the Skill
[3] Who will be affected on the Skill?
[4] The effect of the Skill
[5] Japanese Translated name and US Version Skill name
[6] Dialogue on the characters (along with English Translations)

Simple enough? Let's move on.


----------
4. List of Double Techs

Dialogues and Techs are based on our own understanding.

is ready. M.O.M.O. says yes, stands up then a lot of butterflies fly around. 
Dang, hard to describe and the background was similar to the Inu Yasha 
Opening "Grip!".

also, dealing a mid slash and Shion does an upward slash again then Jin does an 
overhead slash. Then both of them performs a cross slash-like and a cool scene 
appears where both of them facing behind, cherry blossoms(or Sakura) flying, 
a circle of bonfire and the moon with clouds in it. Everytime they attack the 
opponent, a kanji appears(you saw it, right?) in it and I found 9 of them. I'm 
not sure of the romajis but I'll try to double check it again.

the creating an aura sphere and chaos flies down while Jr. lightly touches the 
sphere downward to the enemy and creates a crest on the ground (the crest is

(Shion does the Chinese dance! whoo hoo!) then they will jump in the air, 
crossing their katanas then a romaji of the tech appears the a fire phoenix 
fires down to the enemy. I admit it, Shion should use her katana as a weapon 
rather than her M.W.S. *scrathes head*

Description: chaos is kneeling, telling M.O.M.O. to believe in her power and 
she agrees to chaos, he stands up and a symbol (or pentagram) appears on the 
ground. The scene is at night, along with some fireflies (or Hotaru in Japanese) 
in it. Very nice scene.

descriptions.

Version 0.5 (August 14, 2005)
Continued making the Guide and I'm so tired after the Party I didn't enjoyed 
it that much. Finished the description of Duo Buster and corrected some errors 
and grammar checking in the Dialogues.

Version 0.7 (August 14, 2005)
Typed the rest of the Techs. Added their effects and I saw the romajis of the 
Eiyukenbu Tech but problem is I didn't see it clearly. Guess I'll try to see it 
again....Semester Break in October! T_T

Version 0.9 (August 20, 2005)
Finished the other missing descriptions but the hardest part is that I can't 
describe (or descript) the Dancing Rondo tech, I didn't study dancing lessons 
that much in my past school years....gomenasai!! T_T
 
Version 0.9 (August 21, 2005)
Added the description of the Life One tech. Still can't describe the Dancing 
Rondo tech. The Guide is finished but incomplete.
