Part 21: Chapter 66 (Part 2)New Stuff
Sanae finally gets to complete her V2 Gundam cosplay with two new frames. We're still working out the "official" terms here so I'm just gunna call em Sanae (Qian) and Sanae (Kun).
Qian is her Kanako frame, gaining a tonne of extra Armor in return for some Mobility. Not normally a good trade, but she also gets an S in Air to split the difference. She gains her newly introduced MAP, but it takes 50% Faith and has 1 ammo, so I'd be reluctant to ever use it. It is one the few big MAPs we'll ever get in this game, however.
Kun is the Suwako frame, and doubles down on being fast. She gains an S in Ground/Water, but also has a B in the Air, which you'll need to mitigate in some way. She loses Summon Takeminakata for a completely new finisher, which is both ammo-based (yay) and can't be fired after moving (boo).
From a balance standpoint, they both have trade-offs compared to her base form, which still has her most versatile movelist. You can roll with whichever one you want, and she'll probably do fine. For my part, I like to roll Kun with a Shimenawa (to give her an S in Air) and pretend she's the V2AB.
Patchouli's new attack is excellent, by the way. Her and Meiling's new finishers really help them keep pace, especially if you wanna go ham on Remilia's SDM Katamari gimmick. I just wish Sakuya got a real upgrade too...
