Safer Strings Plz!

I am a Hitomi player. My main problems are my mixups, which are becoming way too predictable, and are quickly getting me KO'd, and I need some help. I understand the Spacing Game, as far as I know, and I am trying to be more aggressive, the main problem is my mixups and defense.

I want to know some safer strings that can help me in a variety of situations. I want some safer combos that I can practice and master that can become only a part of my repertoire. My thing is, I have a lot of good combos. The problem is, they're too predictable, and counterable, and I want to learn new ones that won't get me countered.

Those are my problems, and I would like them fixed ASAP. Preferably before I stream at 10PM tonight. I know that's not going to happen overnight, but please help. I just want my C+ rank back, and I don't want to have to fight tooth and fucking nail just to be even footing with OTHER C+ RANKERS! It's embarrassing that I'm not on the same level as them, simply because of minor fuck ups that get me in big trouble, so any safer strings that I can help me out would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I'm late but safe strings to use for pressure would be the following:

PP

PP6P

PP2K

6PP

3KP

Your mixups probably become predictable because you commit way harder than you need to with this character. You aren't supposed to go ham on strings and buttons with this character; She is designed to test and punish responses from the opponent. For example:

Opponent blocks often - 6T and free canceling to continue your offense.

Opponent likes to hit buttons - Delay strikes within your strings or do a safe string into parry.

Also you say you have combos but what I think you are referring to is the "critical" combo as in extending the stun threshold. If you are being predictable there the problem lies in you trying too hard to force setups on someone and not paying attention to their defensive habits when stunned. Hitomi is well equipped to push the threshold and play a stun poke game. If you are unsure of what your opponents intentions are you should always go with a stun poke game because this allows you to react to holds and apply pressure better than going for setups will.
