Basically this is how Oswald works rekka and combo wise for those that are confused:

All your moves that aren't   ;fd ;dn ;df  +  ;a / ;b / ;c / ;d or  ;bk ;dn ;db +  ;b/ ;d can be stringed togeher rekkas. The rules are is that you can chain 3 different special moves together, the one's canceled later in the series of each move being vastly different from its original version. For example,  ;dn ;db  ;bk   ;k being the weakest starter and does not lead to combos because of its enormously long window before you can cancel into it becomes a wall bounce if you use it after another starter and lets him extend combos beyond that.

There are other uses besides this in terms of combos. For example,  ;dn ;df ;fd ;a to  ;dn  ;db ;bk b/ ;d is a rekka string that contains an overhead which leads to hard knockdown. This leads to mix-ups and often more chances for offensive pressure.
