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  (2 persons who will use the Tech)  Single/All (Enemy or Ally)  Effect  Translated(or US) Name  ----- Description: Dialogue:   Name of Skill  2 persons who will use the Skill  Who will be affected on the Skill?  The effect of the Skill  Japanese Translated name and US Version Skill name  Dialogue on the characters (along with English Translations) Simple enough? Let's move on. ---------- 4. List of Double Techs ---------- Take note that all Double Techs can be used only once per battle. Translated Dialogues and Techs are based on our own understanding. ----- Ark Angelic Requiem Shion and Jr. All Enemies Physical Pierce damage Archangel's Requiem (US) ----- Description: Jr. and Shion are standing back-to-back then Shion raises her M.W.S and blasts upward, revealing an Archangel's wings and feathers slowly falls down. Jr. then fires the feather one by one with great accuracy while moving continuously, reflecting the bullets with the feather and sending beams of light downward to the enemy. Dialogue: Jr./Shion: "Aruku anjerikku rekiemu!!" (Ark Angelic Requiem!!) ----- Burning Chorus Jr. and Ziggy All Enemies Physical Fire Pierce damage Fiery Ritornelle (US) ----- Description: Ziggy does a sweep kick, creating a block on each side then Jr. hops on Ziggy back and punches the ground, causing the blocks to explode and a flame-wings like envelops Jr. then fires his pistols causing a rain of flaming arrows showering down to the enemies. Dialogue: Jr./Ziggy: "Baaningu korasu!" (Burning Chorus!) ----- Burst Veil Shion and M.O.M.O. All Allies Veil effects are doubled for 5 turns ----- Description: Now how do I describe it...we see Shion raising both of her arms and M.O.M.O. kneeling and praying then Shion approaches her, asking if she 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!". Dialogue: Shion: "Yoi wa ii?" (Are you ready?) M.O.M.O.: "Hai, Shion-san!" (Yes, Shion!) Shion/M.O.M.O.: "Baasuto veiru!" (Burst Veil!) ----- Cross Fist Ziggy and KOS-MOS Single Enemy Power combination arts (as decsribed in the JP Version of XSII) Physical Hit damage ----- Description: KOS-MOS and Ziggy does an aerial kick, then does a flurry of whirlwind kicks and they start charging their fists (Ziggy's left fist and KOS-MOS' right fist) and punches it to the enemy, creating an "X" fist. One of my favorite techs. Dialogue: KOS-MOS: "Kurosu fisuto!" (Cross Fist!) ----- Cross Hilbert KOS-MOS and M.O.M.O. All Enemies Causes H Lost ----- Description: KOS-MOS' hands began to shine, then M.O.M.O. is kneeling an raises her hands and KOS-MOS puts her hands on M.O.M.O., causing a ripple aura.

(Cross Hilbert!) ----- Dancing Rondo chaos and KOS-MOS Single Enemy Dance combination arts (as described in the JP Version of XSII) Physical Hit damage Grand Ronde (US) ----- Description: (can somebody help me explaning this? e-mail me...sankyuu) Dialogue: chaos: "Odoran, KOS-MOS?" (Shall we dance, KOS-MOS?) KOS-MOS: "Senjutsu budou jikou shimasu." (It is my pleasure to dance with you.) chaos/KOS-MOS: "Danshingu rondo." (Dancing Rondo.) ----- Duo Buster Shion ans KOS-MOS Single Enemy Ether Beam damage Twin Buster (US) ----- Description: Shion orders KOS-MOS and she(KOS-MOS) does the X-BUSTER Tech, revealing a satellite-like behind her then Shion fires her M.W.S. at the satellite then KOS-MOS starts to charge up then fires at the enemy, frying it. Dialogue: Shion: "KOS-MOS!" KOS-MOS: "Yokai desu, Shion." (Understood, Shion.) Shion/KOS-MOS: "Duo basutaa!" (Duo Buster!) ----- Duo Spell Ray Shion and chaos Single Enemy Ether Beam damage Dual Spell Ray (US) ----- Description: Shion opens her M.W.S and starts to concentrate(with some symbols and pentagrams around her) then chaos walks behind Shion(still concentrates), holding her M.W.S, aims it and fires it causing her to fall down with chaos kneeling on one foot, supporting her!(whoo-hoo!!~) Dialogue: chaos/Shion: "Duo superu rei!" (Duo Spell Ray!) ----- Eiyuukenbu Shion and Jin Single Enemy Physical Slash damage Hero's Sword Dance (JP) Lionheart (US) ----- Description: Shion rushes at the enemy, sending an upward slash then Jin rushes 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. 1st Kanji: Nosoritsu 2nd Kanji: Yuuwa 3rd Kanji: Sakikafu 4th Kanji: Mono 5th Kanji: Mina 6th Kanji: Ni 7th Kanji: Ari 8th Kanji: Tsutashi 9th Kanji: Mae Dialogue: Shion/Jin: "Eiyuukenbu!" (Hero's Sword Dance!) ----- Elemental Nocturne Jr. and chaos All Enemies Ether Spirit damage ----- Description: chaos and Jr. facing behind first then flies in the air, both of 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 somewhat similar to Cardcaptor Sakura, if you watch the Purachina OP, you'll see what I mean). Dialogue: chaos/Jr.: "Erementaru nokutaan!" (Elemental Nocturne!) ----- Gravity Bomber Shion and KOS-MOS Single Enemy Physical Hit damage and causes L Slow for 5 turns Gravity Fist (US) ----- Description: Shion and KOS-MOS' fists charges up then punches it to their fists, creating a gravity ball and roundhouse kicks it to the enemy then they will run in slow-motion(ala Matrix style) into the air and they will do an aerial punch then explodes to the enemy and we will see KOS-MOS carrying Shion(sefu! ^^). The roundhouse kick part rocks! Dialogue: Shion: "KOS-MOS!" KOS-MOS: "Yokai desu, Shion." (Understood, Shion.) Shion/KOS-MOS: "Gurabiti bonbaa!" (Gravity Bomber!) ----- Hououaikiken Shion and Jin Single Enemy Ether Spirit damage Phoenix Love Aura Sword (JP) Phoenix Blade (US) ----- Description: I'll skip the first part. Both of them will do a sword dance (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* Dialogue: Jin: "Ikimasuyo, Shion!" (Bring it on, Shion!) Shion: "Iiwayo, ni-san!" (Not a problem, brother!) Shion/Jin: "Hououaikiken!"

The scene is at night, along with some fireflies (or Hotaru in Japanese) in it. Very nice scene. Dialogue: chaos: "Omoi no chikara ni, Momo-chan." (Have faith in your power, Momo.) M.O.M.O.: "Hai, chaos-san!" (Yes, chaos!) chaos/M.O.M.O.: "Raifu wan!" (Life One!) ----- Silver Duet Jr. and M.O.M.O. Single Enemy Non-elemental Ether damage ----- Description: Jr flips a coin then M.O.M.O. hits it then the scene changes and the bird flies while it cries. Jr. grabs the coin and hits it in the ground, kneeling with M.O.M.O. and three large chains fires upward behind then brings down a huge tower-like structure, crushing it to the enemy. Dialogue: Jr.: "Ikuze, Momo!" (Let's go, Momo!) M.O.M.O.: "Hai, Jr-san!" (Sure, Jr.!) Jr./M.O.M.O.: "Shiruba dueto!" (Silver Duet!) ----- Ziggy Strike Ziggy and M.O.M.O.

Added some Dialogues of the Double Techs and some 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.
