What's the hit advantage on j2 into air axe out of curiosity? Air axe shows as only +4 on hit, which would mean your opponent can easily beat you out if you're going for a 19 frame f2/13 frame b3.Oh yeah, for sure standing 2 does the job but I reckon jump 2 canceled into Air Axe does a bit more damage.
Though, the Air Axe is generally just a good keepaway move to have imo. Helps me out a lot with the Geras matchup for example.
It does indeed help a lot when facing a Geras.
