Well, It's Something to Do...
[Arcade / Score Attack] Hold your own against Unlimited Hazama.
Unlimited Hazama will be the last character you fight in Arcade mode with every character except Jin Kisaragi and Hazama. In Score Attack mode, he can be found near the end of the mode (third to last fight). Simply beat Unlimited Hazama for this achievement. This achievement is much easier in Arcade mode since you can set the difficulty to beginner if you feel the need to do so in order to beat him.
Tall, Dark, and Handsome
[Arcade / Score Attack] Put Unlimited Ragna in his place.
Unlimited Ragna will be the last character you fight in Arcade mode if you are using Jin Kisaragi or Hazama. In Score Attack mode, he can be found near the end of the mode (second to last fight). Like the "Well, It's Something to Do..." achievement for beating Unlimited Hazama, you just need to beat Unlimited Ragna to unlock this achievement. You can set the difficulty in Arcade mode to beginner if you feel the need to do so in order to beat him.
Blood on Your Hands
[Score Attack] Defeat Unlimited Rachel.
Unlimited Rachel is the last opponent you will face in Score Attack mode. She is a very difficult opponent. The strategy used to defeat her will vary depending on which character you are using. For tips on Score Attack, please see the "Score!" achievement.
[Story] Watch "Previously on..." and "Opening" in Story Mode.
When you first start Story mode, this will be the first thing you can do. Simply watch both for the achievement.
That's the End of That Chapter
[Story] View any character's canon ending in Story Mode.
In Story mode, all characters have multiple endings. The canon ending for a character is their "true ending". The Story Mode Guide linked below will help you get every character's canon ending as well as their bad endings and funny endings. You will need to get these to 100% story mode, which is necessary for the "Mint Condition" achievement.
Story Mode Guide is here:
Ragna Cum Laude
[Tutorial] Finish all your homework.
This achievement is unlocked by finishing all of the lessons in Tutorial mode that are under Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced. You do not need to complete any the character tutorials for this achievement.
NOTE: After beating the last advanced tutorial, the screen may turn black and your Xbox will freeze if this happens. Simply turn your Xbox off and on if this happens and try again. If this issue still persists, you should clear your cache as this will most likely solve the problem.
Superior State of Mind
[Challenge] Beat more than 100 challenges.
In Challenge mode, you will have to perform certain combos with every character. There are ten challenges you can complete for each character and a total of 150 challenges (or 180 challenges with DLC) in the game. This achievement will require you to do a majority of them. The challenges can be dreadful, especially for people who are not experts at fighting games, because they require very precise timing and the combos themselves can be very lengthy. You will need a lot of patience and preserving to unlock this achievement.
If you find that a combo in one of the challenges is too long, you can try breaking it up into different parts. Learn parts of the combo and practice all of the parts until you can do them. Then, try doing the first part and when you have the last hit make sure you pause. Gather your thoughts for a moment and run the second part through your head, then unpause and immediately do the second part of the combo.
If you want to see a visual of the challenges being done to see what the combos in challenge mode are supposed to look at, VesperArcade has an excellent playlist that has a video for each character's challenges. It can be viewed here:
The Blazblue Continuum Shift II patch (Version 1.03) also changes the challenges 3-10 for most, if not all, of the characters. If you are having trouble with certain challenges, you can change to and from 1.03 to an earlier version like 1.02 to change what the challenge is. To do this, go to options, system options, and then system version.
If you have questions about a specific challenge, the Challenge Mode Help Thread from PS3Trophies has a lot of answers that may be able to help you:
The following characters are recommended to try using for this achievement:

[Legion] Conquer the map on "Easy."
You have to beat Legion mode on Easy difficulty for this achievement. In this mode, you start off with a character and select a square. You have to battle all enemies in that square and then if you win, you can select one of the enemies you battled against to join you. Take notice of enemy bonuses that are earned after defeating a group of enemies. These bonuses can grant various things like restoring character health and making nearby enemies weaker. The health you have remaining after a fight stays with you, so you want to be careful of how much health your characters have. If a character loses all of their health, you will lose them and have to use another character for the remainder of the fight. Your characters will regain a sliver of health after every battle you win. Your goal in Legion mode is to conquer all of the squares. I recommend starting of with your best character, and always picking your best character or an Unlimited character when you are choosing a character to recruit to your army. You can also save during Legion mode so make sure you save often incase you end up losing a fight.
