Don't forget you can customize your controller set-up.
I prefer the style button on R1; feel it doesn't tie up my thumb as much giving me more dodge reaction time.
As well as makes canceling into Yamoto easier.
That sounds awful. Quit it.
Kidding me? I personally feel it's better than the regular set up which I believe has the Style mapped to 'O'. Having 'X' being your main for dodging aside for trickster; which I find harder using both efficiently while both are mapped to face buttons. Then attacking with swords/guns respectively mapped to 'square' and 'triangle'.
You're using your thumbs for everything.
It's simple logic that if I can use two fingers Instead of one to focus on four buttons, my input time and reaction time should increase; allowing ME to at least do better and play more comfortable.
