Whenever I play SSF4 or AE, I still use Ibuki. Just haven't been playing the game all that much recently. I'm gonna try to go to TNL this weekend and play some AE.
Btw, try and read your opponents when you play. Make notes of their tendencies. If you know these guys are reversal happy, you can use that against them with safe jumps and etc; Especially if it's a DP without an FADC to make it safe. You can punish them HARD and force them to think before taking action.
Doing okay. Trying to get together for more local Arcana Heart 3 play but New York isn't too interested in the game it seems :(
And Makoto has alot of interesting setups that lead to relentless pressure. If you're playing online people are much more prone to mashing DP rather than just reading your tendencies and adjusting accordingly. You'll find yourself baiting the DP at a more frequent rate online. Punish them for it to make them respect your okizeme.
