============
Explanations
============

Ittle Dew:
Ittle's Fair and Uair landing lag was slightly increased. Her Ustrong now more reliably connects with the second hit. Dthrow deals less damage than before but has the same knockback; it dealt a bit too much damage relative to the more powerful characters.

Masked Ruby:
Ruby's sword is now 10% longer except during Nspecial and Dspecial, which makes it easer to sweetspot Fair, Bair and Uair. The last hit of his Ustrong now always sends the opponent straight up. Nspecial can clank with other moves. His Finisher has become deadlier due to reduced DI.

Jenny Fox:
Jenny's Finisher no longer KO's opponents at zero damage. Her Nspecial axes have very slightly more hitstun. Her Fspecial axes travel further, hit opponents more often and no longer continue travelling up/down after completing their initial arc. Jenny can now hold either the Attack or Clutch button to delay her Fair instead of just Clutch, and she can jump out of her Dtilt slightly earlier than before.

Ultra Fishbunjin 3000:
Fishbunjin can now clutch reverse Aerial Dspecial, but it also has slightly more landing lag and less shieldstun so it won't be as safe on block. He now has immunity against very slight knockback (Ittle's bombs and Jenny's Fspecial axes) during the Jump and Fall states in addition to Idle, Crouch, and Walk/Run. He can now act out of his Uthrow slightly faster.

Princess Remedy:
Her landing lag before Bair's hitbox comes out was reduced, and Fthrow now has hitstop which is just a cosmetic change.

Business Casual Man:
Now loses money during Taunt when he's grabbed, and not just when he's hit. His Utilt hitstun was lowered due to its infinite combo potential against Asha, but its endlag was lowered to compensate. His Dspecial superarmor comes out faster than before.

Goddess of Explosions:
Goddess' Jab and Nair now attack in more rapid succession. She deals slightly less damage with Ftilt, Fair and Nspecial, but their knockback remains the same. Her Fair and Dair no longer bounce away when they hit a blocking or invincible opponent. Her Utilt hitstun was lowered due to its infinite combo potential against Asha, but her Finisher and Fthrow are deadlier due to reduced DI.

Asha:
Appeared in Slap City after a particularly confusing teleportation accident.
