Background Edit

Kendou and Kyuudou Nakanishi are recruitable characters in Big Bang Age and playable characters in Big Bang Beat and Big Bang Beat Revolve.

The Nakanishi sisters are a pair of students that have a strong sense of justice. Annoyed by the way Seijou Academy is being run, they team up with Rouga Zanma in order to fight against Agito of the Dark. Kendou is the more outspoken of the two sisters, and is always looking for a good challenge, while Kyuudou is extremely soft-spoken and hesitant. However, as a team, they are all but unstoppable.

Tactics Edit

General Strategies Edit

Using the Nakanishi sisters effectively is much like using Carl Clover from Blazblue--because you're controlling two characters at once, being able to coordinate their movements is key to winning matches. Unlike Carl, Kendou can take care of herself without Kyuudou's help, but like Carl, her overall flexibility and playability will suffer if Kyuudou is not involved in the fight.

Most of the time, Kyuudou's arrows can be used as situational pokes from long range, disrupting an enemy's attacks. That in turn enables Kendou to get in close and do some damage. Especially conducive to this strategy is the fact that Kendou and Kyuudou can use super moves separately, allowing either twin to open up the enemy for an attack from the other one.

Kendou's shinai give her a much longer range for some of her pokes, and once she gets a combo started it's usually child's play to set up for a special, usually 236C or 214C. 41236A/B is also an option if you still need to close the distance, but whatever attack you use after the charge has to be spot on, or the combo will drop and Kendou will be left open.

Kendou's supers are usually used in tandem with Kyuudou's due to their poor horizontal range and semi-long startup, though they can be part of a Kendou-only combo if the opponent is relatively close. 22D can be used to stop dash-ins if timed correctly, and 623D is a fairly workable anti-air in its own right.
