I've never watched the Anime or read the Manga. I have been meaning too. I wanted to do that before playing this game, but I just couldn't wait any longer. Sorry for the rambling, let me get to the point:
The game isn't too hard, I can win the fights by button mashing, and I kind of understand how it works. However I feel like I really don't have a good understanding of how the fighting system works. I know I can hit Triangle then attack and it does some special attacks, and so on. But I don't quite have a good grasp on this fighting system. I don't want to win my way through the game just by hitting buttons, I actually want to learn how to play strategic wise.
The game doesn't do a great job of explaining the controls. No tutorial or anything really. Does anybody know a link for a good Tutorial, or can someone possibly explain to me exactly how the fighting system works, other than just mashing Triangle and Circle, and occasionally R1 and L1 and so on. I don't quite get it.
