It's on par with "Die monster!" and "Have at you!".

Shmups with more than 3 ships always have an imbalance though. There are a few "best for scoring" ships in all Psikyo, Raizing, and Seibu shooters. At least in Shikigami, the other characters play differently, so there is a reason to try them. In Raizing/Psilyo/Seibu stuff, there are always uninspired ships that are not worth playing for any reason.

This is why I tried to point out, before the month began, that this game is usually scored by character, so that each character has their own scoreboard.

A couple of the characters can score as well as Ko, he is just the easiest to score with. There are many sections that he can't score optimallt in, that others can.

I've been trying to 1 cc this game with Kotaro but I find stage 3 quite hard. I usually don't care so much about scoring.

I can't get the hang of the "obstacle course" at the start.

OK, I think I finally figured out the scoring. Oops.

o.pwuaioc - 687,020,660 - Rank 3 - Stage 2-2 - Kohtarou-1 - PS2

What does the ranking mean? Should we include it in our scores?
