This is a really annoying matchup for Jago. Not only can Hisako dash through his fireballs, she can even dash through some of his other useful moves, for example, Wind Kick ! Not only that, but Hisako's Shadow ORZ can EASILY punish any fireball attempt, hell, it can even punish those whiffed normals at long range ! ... You know, those punches that look like a fireball that you use to bait the opponent. Anyway, basically Jago's options are limited in this matchup, so you want to stay close to her. Your best way to approach Hisako is by outplaying the opponent with footsies (while also being careful with the Counters !). It's all neutral game. If you're patient, and you know your buttons, you're set ! Once you've baited enough counters, or when you realize your opponent is respecting your neutral, you can go for more jump-ins and occasional Wind Kicks to close the distance easier. When you do get in, again, like every other matchup, try different mixups. Empty jumps, grabs, low/overhead during Oki, don't go too crazy on your pressure and be smart about your oki setups, because you know ... Counter.

You can definitely beat Hisako with Jago, you just have to be wary of what you're doing and HOLD YOURSELF to NOT go for dumb stuff during neutral, like random jump-ins and Endokukens/Shadow Endokukens. Again, it is a very annoying matchup, but once you've learned how to control your urges, the matchup will become a lot easier for you. 6-4 matchup for Hisako imo

P.S.: Be VEEEEEEEEEEERY careful about throwing DPs on your wake-up. Hisako can Counter that and start a new combo/mixup that can lead to huge damage. It will get you out off some situations, but again, try NOT to use it on your wake-up. If your opponent is expecting it, you gonna have a baaad time.
