Author's comments and explanations:

This is already my 3rd submission of the game. Here are the major changes (for more in-depth explanations, look at the previous submission)

For this fight, I tried doing it with the Malay Dagger and the Shadow Sword. In the first case, it took 600 more frames just to get out fo the spaceport. And in the 2nd case, 120 damages (80 without shift) is just not enough.

Total saving : 2136 frames

Possible improvement : Have Zio use more of his laser hand; and Xe-La attack more, have more luck with Chaz against PD (I was able to do away without Deban, but Chaz' low accuracy kept me from using this trial)

Frame suggestion : 236 337, 236 748, 237 797, 238 081, 240 839 (all of them being the "crotch attack")
