Time / Score requirements
These are not official, I am simply using my own personal stats to guess what requirements are needed for S-ranks. I am not including the Synchronic rate, always try to get "excellent.". Any times/scores I have with "?" I haven't gotten an S-rank yet. Please feel free to correct or confirm my guess. All times are equal or less.

If you do not use the rapid-shot on episode 1, there is a locked-shot cap of 999 together with 100% sync that will not allow you to earn S-rank (let off a couple rapid shots). I had 2 S-ranks & an A-rank but it would not give me an overall S. Episode 3, do not skip the tutorial & do no more than the tutorial asks then do whatever you want against the real enemies but try not to go past 3:00

Getting the S ranks on hard mode without the obliterator gauge.
Some notes in general.
Use lots of Air Dash Kick -> Ground Dash Uppercuts (while jumping, hold down "B" and after you do air dash kick, you'll do ground dash uppercut).
Try to do special moves, like when an opponent is on the ground with a yellow "Y" symbol over his head, when you are surrounded by many enemies.
I use the Survivor Gauge (extends duration of Unlimted Mode) almost all the time. For the only hard episodes, 15 (hardest) & 17, I resorted to the Defender gauge. I also had to die alot to get good enough at those episodes for an S rank.
Right as he is doing his second dashing attack towards you, jump and then do your Air Dash kick to then nail him. He is vulnerable from behind (as in if you can attack him right in his back then he can't counter you). Prepare for him to jump on you and press Y to counter. When he is knocked on the ground, pelt him with B hits until Yasha does his ending flip kick, and then do Y.
Try to go for A rank in time, but S rank in battle points & synchronization. I used the defender gauge.
Easiest thing to do is before you get to the mantra chamber (where Yasha talks about how they collected 7 trillion souls and converted them into mantra energy), don't hit burst right away. While you're at that wall that is shooting at you, hit Unlimited Mode and spam regular X attacks at the center of the circle until Unlimited Mode runs out = 999 battle points (max you can get in any stage is 999 from regular shots). In second rail shooting area where you fight three giant space ships, again hit unlimited mode and while that is on keep putting your cursor over the faces of the enemy ships and spam lock-on shots. Just sweep your cursor over all three faces, and spam lock-on attacks. Doing each of these just takes about an extra 20 seconds each time, but you get a ton of points.
When you are fighting Deus, when you get close to him he'll use his lightning nunchucks for one series of attacks, then a steps forward to make another series of attacks with nunchucks, then he'll pause and do something. Right after he does that something, is when he is vulnerable. Jump up sideways circling around him and when he does that something, perform your air-dash attack to get close to him, and hold button down so then you do ground dash attack = get close to him while he's vulnerable.
Some of the "somethings" he can do after two series of nunchuck attacks are a big spin lightning kick, a line of lightning strikes that kind of spirals out from him, some sort of dash attack, Jump into air then slam into the ground (while as Yasha) and probably some other stuff too. Sometimes while he finishes this "something" move, he'll dash away somewhere else, but he'll still be vulnerable for a bit after he dashes away.

- Ep 3 : 4198 battle points and I got a S-Rank.
- Ep 4 : 5613 battle points and I got a S-Rank.
- Ep 6 : 4330 battle points and I got a S-Rank (with 4076 battle points, I only got a A-Rank).
- Ep 12 : 3m27s for the time and I got a S-Rank (so yeah, it's probably under 4m00 for the S-Rank).
- Ep 13 : 6m26s for the time and I got a S-Rank (with 6m37s for the time, I only got a A-Rank)
- Ep 16 : 10053 battle points and I got a S-Rank (with 9882 battle points I only got a A-Rank so I think you're right about the "1000 points").
