Game is fun. Flashy lights and screenshake and good hitstop when you hit people, which is probably the most important thing for me lol.

I guess it's... kinda like a cross between Street Fighter and Guilty Gear?

Best description of it I've seen is that it plays like a classic ground/footsies focused game like SF or KOF, but with anime combos and set ups.

I like it a lot. Been playing Wagner. Fun, interestingly designed character focused around installs. Short range, but she can do whatever the fuck she wants once she gets charges. Cool neutral mindgames there.

Grid very much affects the gameflow and makes Green Shield more interesting than it is in Guilty Gear, too.

Wagner is kinda Squigly/Band levels of annoying. In a game where you want to sometimes not press buttons to conserve Grid, Wagner benefits from those moments with charges. If she has sword charge and gets her pressure started, you have to either take a lot of chip or risk Grid break (edit: in general you want to use Shield at some point, but you still take like twice as much chip as other matchups, plus she has better mixup than Hyde). If she has shield charge, she gets an auto-guard shield rush which is just strong. She can also outpoke Seth, though Linne's 2B is a surprisingly good poke (the trick is that she takes a step forward).

Looks like Guilty Gear and BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle aren't the only ones getting new stuff...
