Better chance to get an izuna drop and less recovery frames with some attacks. Quite hard indeed and annoying as well

Still could improve the score by a lot and mistakes that can be avoided. In overall I lost 150k because of those BS(Ninjas) moments.

Nice. Why, in some fights, do you not kill the rocket launchers first?

Mainly because it works out the same after many attempts and scorewise it doesn't change the overall score you earn during the fight

I just found them incredibly annoying and always kill them first. When is day 7 coming out?

Got to fix the internet first since the router has said screw you to me. Still have wifi on my phone but barely a decent signal. Day 7 will be uploaded next week Tuesday

Day 7 - some nice boss fights, but all in all, not your best work. Your reflexes for the SoB grab are nice.

In overall I could have done a lot better but I have to admit you are right. It wasn't really my best work, but when I watch the video again I do see those SoB reflexes too. Thx Reim. I will upload Day 8 too this week, but for now I have to recover from a migraine attack that happened Monday morning.

I did very bad on Day 8 and I took the score only because it took me over 11 million. Overall I think I lost, after calculating, at least 200k because of not-cooperating BSN, the slider guys and mostly, failed inputs.

Just one question. Was it luck or skills according to you guys when I did the first fight in the Black Narwhal? Just curious since I got more then 86k out of that fight.
I still believe that 1.4 million is possible on Day 7 and 1.4 million is also possible on Day 8 if the enemies are very cooperative

I think that the next scores are possible for every Day

Day 1: 975k
Day 2: 1,25M
Day 2-Ayane: 975k
Day 3: 1,275M
Day 4: 960k
Day 5: 1,1M
Day 6: 970k
Day 6-Ayane: 1,05M
Day 7: 1,39M
Day 8: 1,375M

Total possible score: 11,320,000

In general I think I lost 270,000 points on this run. To get it absolutely perfect and make sure my highscore is secured for the top 3, I can't afford to restart from a checkpoint or die.

Uploading Day 8 now. Should be done by tomorrow morning.

In overall I think I did very bad on this one too. Knowing I didn't get the 40k points for defeating the giant goddess because I died, and knowing I lost some more points during the Day I believe that improving is possible if the enemies were a bit more cooperative. In the first segment of the goddess fight I originally wanted to farm SoB until my health was completely full.

On the Wii U you were able to get a full UT by killing several enemies on a specific difficulty, but they patched it so you can't get a full UT anymore and you really need to keep the Bloody rage karma multiplier as high as possible. I saw that without a full UT that 2.0 is the maximum and I really wish they didn't patch the full UT in the goddess fight.

I tried a different approach and it seems a bit risky for me to do it since those slider guys take a way a lot of health and I was quite lucky to get a SoB chain before my ki-bar was filled.

Well that's it for this run and I will have all videos for every Day uploaded and put in a playlist on YouTube.

I will start a Hero KR next Friday (November 4) and I will not change the play style during the run. I might have to look at my Normal run vids again to maximize my score. I do hope that I can shoot for at least 6,75 million and I'll adjust the OP in the specific topic every time I complete a Day.

If you desire to watch the run completely from scratch, then click every link in the OP and open it in a new tab (or window, whichever you like), watch the video and comment below or at least, like the video.

Any reply here will be answered in full and I will try to explain everything in full to give you guys some insight on what I did and why I did it.

Yours Faithfully

Is the first fight on the Black Norwhal the one with the imps and the crazy aggressive slider fiends? I thought that was mainly skill. You knew they prefer to do their SoB attack at a distance, and you compensated for that.

Quick question. At the start of Day 8, if you die before the dave, you will be forced to battle the spider mecha (instead of flying down to it and killing it). Would you get more karma by doing that, or isn't it a fight where you get Karma?

I have actually no idea. I think it isn't possible on story mode but it is a compulsory fight in the chapter challenge.

I need to try it out.

I thought that if you died on it, then you would need to actually face it, instead of the quick death at the start of the chapter.

For the Cliff fight, were you baiting a SoB grab by getting behind him?

Actually, no. His SoB grab is enormously unpredictable so I had to try and make him do it. Costed me a lot of ki and health.

After that, things didn't go well.

I actually thought about redoing it but it will be for another run as that bug will strike guaranteed. I will do hero mode next Friday and I have an idea on how to approach it.
