I thought to just do this myself, since nobody tried to do something like this for Shantotto yet. And for good reason, too! These combos are just insane when it comes to timing. Well, enough of my rant. It took hours to edit the vid and days to even pull off some of the easier combos here. I guess you can't blame me for wanting to get it over with already. Okay, okay, here it is.
Shantotto's a mad combo ninja witch thingy. >_<
Just some tips on chase canceling:
- Hold down the X button during Retribution, then time the R shoulder button correctly to dodge. DO NOT MASH. It rarely helps and you'll just hurt your finger and get frustrated. Best familiarize the timing instead of leaving it to luck--it's around half a second right after the X chase indicator appears after Retribution.
- Timing on dodge canceling isn't the only thing you need to know. You also need to know the earliest you can cancel your dodge into Stun. Shantotto says "uh-huh!" whenever she does Stun. If you did it correctly, this audio cue should be gone. I guess that's your "audio cue". I commented on it in the video.
If you've got any questions then I'm gonna say I'm really pooped with this video. But I'll try my best to answer them!
Credit goes to apporochi, of course, or whoever it is who thought about this insane tactic. Srsly. >_<
Shanntotto is REALLY a mad ninja °__°.
Hope there are some Chase-Cancel for other characters... or else I think that I've to start subbing/maining the Little Lady xD

ill try this. nice vid
Another thing to consider here is your distance from the opponent. Depending on where you end up with the dodge cancel, Stun -> Aero might not be possible. It's also weird when you start getting close to the ceiling from my experience.
Though apart, forever connected.

Beautiful! I wonder if this can work for Kuja. Both Energy Burst and Strike Energy are quick. Not as fast as stun, but still quick!
Remember: December 2011
the most amazing combos with Shantotto :O GG
The combo at 3:40 made me want to cry.. I love you Arty <3

I hate using Bio in the air, but oh well, it was necessary for these combos. :/
I'd have to say my favorite combos were the one with Yuna at 5:28 and the Golbez double assist combo. If you look carefully at the latter, the assist gauge didn't gray out when Shantotto used Stun after being hit by Golbez's beams. In fact, it didn't gray out at all until the second Attack System.
