     To navigate much easier through this guide, I added the search system, which
    works just by following these simple steps:
    
    - Highlight the "Section Code" of the section which you wish to go and copy it
      (CTRL+C).
    
    - Press CTRL+F to bring up the search sub-menu.
    
    - Paste (CTRL+V) the "Section Code" and press ENTER twice to be where you
      wanted to be. Just like magic!
    
     My Section Codes were made as precise as possible, and I also prefer this
    method instead of having you scroll 30 min through this huge guide looking for
    the section you want to go.

     What is up everyone! vinheim here and it's been a looong time (almost a year
    now) since I've written a guide by myself, so the outcome and speed will be
    something interesting to see. Muramasa Rebirth is a game I recently got via PS+
    and its really growing on me. I never played the original Muramasa for the Wii,
    but I played (and wrote) for the spiritual predecessor of the game, Odin Sphere
    which was marvellous.
    
     Its pretty similar only that Muramasa is a really fast-paced game, which is a
    plus but retains the awesomeness of Odin Sphere. Also the mythology is
    Japanese, whilst the mythology in Odin Sphere is nordic-scandinavian. Enough
    rambling from my part and I'll leave you with the awesome MURAMASA REBIRTH.

     This is a little experiment of mine and I just wanna see how it goes. Well, if
    you found this guide to be at least somewhat useful, think about donating some
    money. I mean, I'm a student who pays his own school, and it's gastronomy and
    it consumes all the money I get at home. I'm not asking for 10-20 bucks.
    Whatever your heart wants to give is fine, be it 1 buck, 50 cents.
    
     Whatever the amount you can donate, I'd truly, TRULY appreciate it and your
    help would be greatly appreciated. Well, you can only donate through PayPal at
    the moment, which the account is: vinheim@gmail.com
                                      -----------------
    
     Instead of buying the official guides which cost around 20 dls., better donate
    half or a quarter or whatever amount to yours truly.
    
     To those who support me, thanks.                  - Alexander Paul Kleinheider

                  Countless Demon Blades are stewn about the world.
                  Once one of these blades is drawn from its sheath,
                     they immediately begin thirsting for blood.
                                           
                                           
            Esposed to the blood of those overcome with malice and spite,
            even the most blessed of legendary blades will eventually be
              turned to evil and become what are known as Demon Blades.
              Those who foolishly choose to wield whese blades are soon
           overcome with thoughts of killing and wanton slaughter, and are
            eventually driven insane before their lives come to an often
                                     violent end.
                                           
          It is the Genroku period of Japanese history, during the reign of
               the shogun Tsunayoshi Tokugawa, that a demonic presence
           threatens to destroy the peace and prosperity of the country. As
            the hate, greed, doubt, and malice of those contending for the
           possession of one of the cursed Muramasa blades builds, goblins,
           monsters, and other creatures of evil begin to appear throughout
           the nation. Such is the chaos that even the king of the dragons
          and the gods themselves are forced to intercede. What fate awaits
               those doomed to wield the mightiest of the Demon Blades?

     As we start Muramasa Rebirth, we get to play either the Legend or the Chaos
    Styles, which is pretty much an Easy and Normal/Hard difficulty. This guide is
    made in Chaos Style, so time to get started. We also get to choose who do we
    want to play as. We have Momohime and Kisuke. I'll be listing Momohime's story
    first, so keep on reading. if you want Kisuke's side, use the ToC above to get
    to his section.
    
     NOTE~~ I'll be writing this guide as if you were to use and finish Momohime
            first, then Kisuke. Think of Kisuke as a second playthrough.

     --== Area 1 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nothing special here. Remember that here's where the Magical Barrier and we'll
    return here once we get another Demon Blade. Anyway, proceed right to Area 2.
    Make sure to examine the magic barrier to get a Trophy.

     --== Area 2 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     You'll see some Green Souls amongst the trees here. These replenish your Demon
    Blades so make sure to grab them and replenish those Blades. You're also
    attacked by some Ninjas. Nothing hard. Proceed to Area 3.
    
     --== Area 3 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Just like in the previous area, souls to grab and Ninjas.
    
      --== Area 4 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     You see that symbol on the map? Its a reddish basket. Go right to spot a shiny
    object. You're told about Treasure. When the map has a red basket, we have to
    look for the Treasure. Don't worry, I'll be telling you the locations. This one
    here has a [HEALING PELLET]. Proceed to the upper right exit.
    
     --== Area 5 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's a Treasure amongst the branches in the center of the area with a
    [BAMBOO FLASK]. Make sure to grab it.
    
     --== Area 6 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     We're outside the woods and in a little village, or at least the outskirts of
    it. There's a couple of ninjas, but that's about it.
    
     --== Area 7 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     No enemies here, but we can enter the house to find a chest with
    [BAMBOO FLASK x2]. Nice. Exit the house and proceed to Area 8.
    
     --== Area 8 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     You get to fight ninjas here but just before you exit the area, you're
    attacked by some Samurai. These enemies can block your attacks, so use a
    Charged Slash to break their Katanas and defeat them.
    
     --== Area 9 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Not much here besides the Souls for your Blades. Other than that, go right to
    the next area.
    
     --== Area 10 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     In this area we find a large Soul, which gives you much more than the little
    ones. We also get attacked by Tiny Onis, which aren't a threat at all. Simple
    attack 'em nonstop. Now proceed to the upper right area.
    
     --== Area 11 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nothing here. There's gonna be many areas like this throughout the game so
    don't be disappointed. Proceed to the next area.
    
     --== Area 12 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Enter the 2 houses here to find a Treasure with [HEALING PELLET x2] (one in
    each house).
    
     --== Area 13 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     We get ambushed here by a group of ninjas and a group of Tiny Onis. Nothing
    hard so proceed right to the last area.
    
     --== Area 14 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     In here you'll see how the camera changes a bit and looks like the area is a
    circle. Looks really nice. You also get to save your game (FINALLY!) so do so
    and proceed right to a boss fight.
    
     Before starting the Boss Fight speak to the monks and lastly the green spirit
    to continue the scene and then the fight!
    
    o~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
                                        BOSS #1
                                       BLUE MONK
    
     A really easy first boss fight. He has a couple attacks and hit hard, but he's
    too slow for his own good and gives away when he's gonna attack so you can
    evade easily. Also note that the attacks its best to evade them by either
    rolling or using Dash Slash instead of blocking since his attacks can break
    your Blades quite easily.
    
     A list of his attacks:
    
     o He tosses 5 bronze objects in the air and when they fall they create a
       pillar of fire. Note that the objects 1, 3 and 5 fall first, then the second
       and fourth ones so make sure to Dash Slash to evade the attack and deal some
       quick damage. Note that he chants before tossing them. This is your cue.
    
     o He jumps forward and tries to land on you. Dash Slash it.
    
     o He groans, jump backwards and spit out some blue flames that travel in an
       up/down pattern. Run towards his position and Dash Slash him.
    
     o If you're really close, he'll stomp you.
    
     o Last but not least he spits fire on the ground that travel a long distance.
       Jump over it and use Dash Slash to stay in the air.
    
     As you can see, not a hard boss at all, but it does do some damage so heal up
    as necessary.
     _____________________________________________________________________________
    o~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o
    
     After the fight we get the [CELESTIAL ORIGINS], which lets you break the
    barrier. After the fight go right to find Kongiku and two Kitsunes. Speak to
    them and then its time to proceed.

    area, break the barrier and proceed to...

     --== Area 1 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     This is very similar to the previous course and it also has 14 areas, so lets
    get started yeah! There's nothing here haha. Continue west.
    
     --== Area 2 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's a treasure in the upper right corner of the area, so use the branches
    to get [RECOVERY PELLET]. Nothing else. Proceed west once more.
    
     --== Area 3 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     We're in a cave now. This is a first. There are several Tiny Onis here, which
    are still not a threat, and much less with new and more powerful swords. Head
    west here.
    
     --== Area 4 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     This is a large area, but locate the area's treasure on top on the left-most
    tree for an [INFERNO AMULET]. There may be some Apprentice Ninjas here, so
    dispose of them and go west to area 5.
    
     --== Area 5 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     This area is blocked by another barrier, but just wanted to let you know where
    it is so we can return here and mark it on your map :). That's it here, besides
    some Spirits. There's also a Treasure but we can't get it yet so return to the
    previous area and follow the upper right path.
    
     --== Area 6 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's treasure here in the upper right side of the area with [SMOKE BOMB],
    but more importantly a new enemy, a Blue Tengu. These enemies fly around and
    toss several feathers as you. Hit them back to deal some damage and keep those
    aerial combos high! Other than that, not much so proceed right to the next one.
    
     --== Area 7 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's a tree stump here with a purple barrier which cannot be broken at the
    moment, so grab the Spirits around it and proceed right.
    
     --== Area 8 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     A whole bunch of nothing. Many Spirits though, so get them and proceed right.
    
     --== Area 9 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     In the center of the area on the top branch is the treasure of the area,
    [SMOKE BOMB]. You may encounter some Apprentice Ninjas as well, but proceed
    right once more.
    
     --== Area 10 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     You'll find Kongiku here, as well as a save point. Speak to her, save up and
    continue right to the next area.
    
     --== Area 11 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     We're in the village now. Speak to the people here... man they are BUFFED!
    Look at them muscles haha. Anyway, speaking to the woman allows you to enter
    the restaurant and eat, which restores your health and gives you Spirit, which
    is awesome so we can forge some new weapons.
                                                    .--------------------.--------.
     Obviously, the pricier the food the more you   | Steamed White Rice |  8 Mon |
    get, and its good. The Tempura Udon gives you   | Kitsune Udon       | 16 Mon |
    a lot of Spirit (1,920) so grab some if so      | Herring Soba       | 24 Mon |

    nothing important to say, so go in if you want to. Otherwise, leave the area to
    the right.
    
     --== Area 12 ==--

     There's a treasure om the floor on the right side with [HERBAL REMEDY]. Nab
    it, fight a couple Blue Tengus and proceed right.

    .------------------------.--------.  Speak to the monk here and the merchant
    | Bamboo Flash           |  5 Mon | right next to him. He has many items for
    | Sweet Rice Wine        | 15 Mon | sale right now. The first 3 are healing
    | Healing Pellet         |  8 Mon | items, which you should be familiarized
    | Bag of Rice            | 20 Mon | with by this time. The Bag of Rice and

    | Ninja Belt             | 75 Mon |
    | Culinary Arts Vol. 1   | 60 Mon |  I recommend getting a Ninja Belt since it
    | Epicurean Arts Vol. 1  | 60 Mon | raises your Vitality by one, allowing you
    | Map of Izu             | 30 Mon | to equip more Blades. Both Art vols. teach
    | Map of Sagami          | 30 Mon | you how to cook, so I recommend getting
    '------------------------'--------' both too. Since I'm giving out the Maps at
                                        the start of each section, there's really
    no need for them, so buy them only if you want to or aren't following this
    guide 100%. The old man inside the house has nothing important to say, so go
    right to the next area.

     --== Area 1 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Finally a change of scenery! Was getting sick of woods haha. Anyway, nothing
    here, so go east to the next area.
    
     --== Area 2 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nothing here, besides some Apprentice Ninjas. Note that you can double tap
    down to go down to the stream. This will make the Ninjas stay on top and you
    can heal up or do anything you want. Proceed right.
    
     --== Area 3 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Go right in this area and soon enough you'll see a bridge coming towards you.
    Go across it to get to the next area.
    
     --== Area 4 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
    .------------------------.--------.
    | Sweet Rice Wine        | 15 Mon |  Speak to the merchant on the right to find
    | Recovery Pellet        | 22 Mon | even more new items. You should already
    | Inferno Amulet         | 50 Mon | have an Inferno Amulet, as well as recovery
    | Herbal Remedy          | 50 Mon | items, so we shouldn't worry about that.
    | Smoke Bomb             | 80 Mon | Radish is an ingredient which can be used
    | Bronze Mirror          | 30 Mon | when you buy the Culinary Arts Vol. 2.
    | Radish                 |  7 Mon |
    | Ninja Gauntlets        | 75 Mon |  The Ninja Gauntlets and the Sheath are 2
    | Swordsman's Sheath     | 90 Mon | more accessories, which are good to have
    | Culinary Arts Vol. 2   | 60 Mon | but if you can't afford them, don't buy
    | Map of Musashi         | 30 Mon | them yet. Besides that, get that Art book
    '------------------------'--------' and a couple Radishes so we can make Boiled
                                        Radish, which gives us 1,500 Spirit and
    boosts Defense for a while. Nice huh? :) Anyway, proceed left to the next area.
    
     --== Area 5 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nothing new here, besides 2 Samurai to fight. That's it. Continue west.
    
     --== Area 6 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nothing here besides a Yellow Barrier that keeps you from going onwards.
    Remember this place for later. Return to Area 4 and go right to Area 7.
    
     --== Area 7 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Here you'll find Kongiku once again. Speak to him, save your game and proceed
    right to the next area.
    
     --== Area 8 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     A new enemy here, some enemy with Umbrellas. They attack while gliding and hit
    hard, so be careful. Continue to the right.
    
     --== Area 9 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are many spirit-thing enemies here which are pretty harmless so just
    unsheath your katana at the right moment to take care of them all. Proceed
    right to the next area.
    
     --== Area 10 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Take the path going across the bridge upwards.
    
     --== Area 11 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's a couple Blue Tengus here, which get pretty simple as you level up.
    Besides that, go right to the next area.
    
     --== Area 12 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nab the treasure in the middle of the area for a [HERBAL REMEDY]. There's also
    a new enemy, the Ghosts. You can't hit these enemies directly, so you have to
    bounce off the flames they toss at you by hitting them so do it.
    
     --== Area 13 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     And yet another magic barrier, a white one this time. This is the strongest
    one so you may assume this will be the final area... but I won't tell ;).
    Anyway, return to Area 10 and go right.
    
     --== Area 14 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     You will see a well in the background and you'll be able to go down it, so go
    down, grab the spirits and the hidden [SALAMANDER ROBE]. This accessory makes
    you immune to fire which will come in handy pretty soon. Afterwards return
    outside and go right to the next dead end area.
    
     --== Area 15 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's a red magic seal here. This is a Cave of Evil. I would abstain from
    going in there at this time since you'll be underleveled (level 9 recommended).
    We'll come back later. Return now ALL the way back to Area 3 and go right to
    Area 16.
    
     --== Area 16 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nice change of scenery huh? There's treasure too which is awesome. Its all the
    way on the right side of the area, which contains a [SWEET RICE WINE]. Its on
    the second level of the area.
    
     --== Area 17 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     This is an area going upwards. In the first room you can go into there's a
    stronger Samurai but is the same as the previous ones and its only one.
    Remember to break that Katana first. The second room is empty and the third one
    has a chest with [BAGS OF RICE x3] so nab that and proceed to the next area.
    
     --== Area 18 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are 3 building in this area. On top of the first one is a room with on
    those Ghost enemies. Take care of it, exit and enter the room on top of the
    third building (the room in the second building is empty). There's a chest with
    [CABBAGE x2] in here so get them and proceed.
    
     --== Area 19 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's treasure here and its underneath you, which has a [RECOVERY PELLET].
    More rooms to check out. I'll say what's inside them from left to right.
    There's a Courtesan in the first room... :3... a geisha. Nothing to do here and
    the second room... is just weird. That guy gets turned on by talking bad things
    about him >___>. And since its marked in the map, the last room is the next
    area.
    
     --== Area 20 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯                             .--------------------.---------.
     Yeah, I didn't know whether to put it as a    | Sushi [Tuna]       |  20 Mon |
    new area or not, but what the heck. This is    | Sushi [Sea Urchin] |  60 Mon |
    the restaurant of the area. If you have the    | Sushi [Halibut]    |  40 Mon |
    cash, that Whole Sea Bream gives you a         | Sillago Tempura    |  80 Mon |
    whopping 6,000 Spirit, which is amazing at     | Whole Sea Bream    | 100 Mon |
    this point in the game, but 100 Mon is         '--------------------'---------'
    something to think about. Buy whatever you
    can afford at the time, return to the previous area and go right this time.
    
     --== Area 21 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's a red barrier here and we can break it so do so and proceed to a whole
    new area of Musashi.

     More buildings here and yet nothing to do. Quickly proceed to the next area.

     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Three buildings here and three rooms to go into. The first one has a chest
    with [SWEET RICE WINE x2], the second room has a strong Samurai and the third
    one has a Ghost. That's it for the area so proceed right.
    
     --== Area 4 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     More rooms to go into. Yay! Enemies in the first and second rooms. The third
    and last room has [BAGS OF RICE x3]. Nice. Proceed.
    
     --== Area 5 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nothing here. Absolutely nothing. Proceed right.
    
     --== Area 6 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Only a few enemies (mostly the Umbrella guys) so defeat them and proceed.
    
     --== Area 7 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's Treasure! Right above you with a [SMOKE BOMB]. That's it. No open
    doors, no nothing. time to proceed :).
    
     --== Area 8 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     The first two rooms have a Samurai in each. Really easy. The third one has a
    Ghost. Ok. I think we need some new and powerful enemies right? Proceed right.
    
     --== Area 9 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     You'll be ambushed by a couple Ninjas, which use bombs now and you'll be set
    on fire, so be careful. They're the only things in this area so proceed to the
    tenth one, which goes upwards.
    
     --== Area 10 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     This is anothe upwards area with 3 rooms. The first one greets you with a
    chest containing a [RECOVERY PELLET] while the next 2 have a Samurai in each.
    Nice. Proceed. We're almost done, don't freat.
    
     --== Area 11 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Treasure sighted at the end of the area on the second level for an [INFERNO
    AMULET]. Nice. That's it. Go on!
    
     --== Area 12 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     You'll be attacked by some Monks, which can be hard to stagger, but keeping
    them in the air is the best you can do in my humble opinion. You'll also be
    attacked by some Blue Tengus, which are not hard at all. Proceed to the last
    area of the section.
    
     --== Area 13 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     As usual, there's a Save Point so heal and save up your progress, prepare
    yourself and continue to the boss battle. After the scene, enter the room at
    the end to start it. Make sure to equip the Salamander Robe before entering the
    fight.

                                       BOSS  #2
                                       WANYUUDO
    
     Wanyuudo is a cartwheel with fire surrounding it. He's not that hard, but his
    fire attacks can be pretty annoying, and more if you didn't equip the accessory
    I told you about earlier. His attacks consist of the following.
    
     o He starts spinning around and leaves a trail of fire that does a lot of
       damage and stays there for like 8 seconds. Move to a side as fast as you can
       using a Dash Slash.
    
     o He starts levitating and dripping fire, leaving a puddle which stays there
       for a long time and this puddle starts shooting little fireballs upwards.
       You can attack it to get rid of it, but I recommend staying away from there
       until it goes away.
    
     o He shoots a large purple orb-thingy up in the air and this breaks into
       several smaller ones, having a rain of purple orbs. It takes like 5 seconds
       to pop, so get the heck away from the area.
    
     o Once you deplete the first bar, he starts levitating, gets covered in a
       black aura and starts shooting fireballs in a circle. Attack the fireballs
       to get rid of them.
    
     Overall not a tough boss. In his final stages, he gets really fast which can
    be intimidating but he still deals the same damage. In his very last stage, he
    starts a fireball rain, which can kill you if you're not careful. Make sure to
    keep your healing items ready to use whenever you need to :).

     After the fight we get the [FLAMES OF PERDITION] Katana and now we can destroy

    Momohime's soul too to end Act 2.

     Now that we have the Katana that breaks orange barriers, we can now go to more
    places, but we can also forge even more Blades. Anyway, to proceed with the
    story, we need to return to Sagami, yes, backtrack manually all the way over
    there. It's only like 20 screens... >:(.
    
     Anyway, once at Sagami (take a look at the map from before), go all way way to

    here so go to the next one.

     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     A new scenery. We'll be crossing a river... and some really annoying enemies
    appear, the Toads. These are powerful and really hard to stagger. I recommed
    using a Long Sword and doing Charged Slashes to get rid of the bigger Toads.
    Beware because they can poison you as well. Oh geez. Proceed left after the
    fight. There are also some green Spirits amongst the branches near the right
    exit.
    
     --== Area 6 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Another river scenery. Really nice. As you cross left you'll go over a
    boulder. Jump while on the boulder to get some more green Spirits. You may also
    fight some Blue Tengus, so get rid of them and proceed left.

     There are green Spirits over both exits so grab them both and proceed to the

     We're inside a cave once more. As we enter we have our katana out. That means
    enemies. There are ninjas through the area so start by dropping down and kill
    the first Ninja on the left. These throw bombs so be careful. Go to the top to
    kill 2 more Ninjas and there's a treasure on the right side with [CULINARY ARTS
    VOL. 3]. Now drop to the bottom and go right to the next area.
    
     --== Area 9 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     We're at the beach. Looks really pretty. You can't do anything at the moment,

     We're crossing a cave now and there are Goblins (or whatever they are) in this
    room, so dispatch of them and proceed.

     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     We find a Yellow Barrier in this area leading to Totomi. We can't go this way
    yet, so lets return to the previous area (9) and go right, following the upper
    path.
    
     --== Area 11 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     As you enter drop down to find a [SWEET POTATO]. Grab the Spirits around here
    and kill the Monks. Continue right.
    
     --== Area 12 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Another Cave of Evil here, and a white barrier is here. We'll come back in a
    while. I'll remember you, don't worry ;). Continue right.

    | Culinary Arts Vol. 4   |  85 Mon |  you don't really need the maps since I
    | Map of Totomi          |  30 Mon |  provide them and the accessories are nice

    '------------------------'---------'
                                           As for the restaurant, the Mitsumame is
    the most expensive one but gives you 1,800 Spirits and fully heals you. If you
    have the Mon, buy some. After the shops, go right some more. The guys on the
    right take you to either Izu or Sagami for 50 Mon. We don't need to right now
    so continue right.

     There's a yellow barrier here preventing you going to Kai. We'll be coming
    back here soon. Now use a Bronze Mirror if you'd like and return ALL the way to
    Area 1. Yup, back track 16 areas and from there follow the lower left exit.
    
     --== Area 18 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Oh man a pitch-black cave with more bomb-tossing ninjas. I hate these guys.
    There are three in total so dispose of them quickly and head over to the right
    area.
    
     --== Area 19 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Climb on top of the exit of this cave to find an [IYO WHETSTONE] waiting for
    you. Grab the spirits and defeat the enemies if you get attacked. Head over to
    the right.
    
     --== Area 20 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Get the [BEAR-BILE TABLET] from the branch and there's another barrier here,

    exit to the left.

     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are some ninjas and flying ninjas here in the open, so get rid of them

    windy rain haha.

     There's nothing here. Run forward to the next area.

                                       BOSS  #3
                                       YUKINOJO
    
     Yukinojo, if the normal Samurai enemies are annoying, Yukinojo takes the
    prize. He's pretty much a regular Samurai but has more range and when he
    slashed, a purple beam comes out of the sword... you get the point. He has less
    health than the previous 2 bosses, but damaging him is really hard since he
    blocks most of your attacks.
    
     Just like with Samurai, doing a Charged Slash is the best so you can break his
    katana and deal some actual damage. Note that besides the Charged Slash, you'll
    need to attack him some more (or use a second Charged Slash) to destroy the
    katana.
    
     When his katana is complete, most of his attacks will have beams coming out of
    it, making his range wider. When its broken, he has no range whatsoever and
    deals little damage so go all-out when it happens. Make sure to block his
    attacks constantly be beware because you can get your blades broken. Stay on
    your toes and be prepared to block / jump / roll away from him whenever needed.

     After the fight we get the [SWORD OF BLACKENED SOULS], which lets us destroy

     Man the story is getting really good. Liking it so far! Time to go destroy
    some yellow barriers, but also you can forge new katanas. They're kinda
    expensive (Soul-wise) but are really powerful. As for now, there are 3 Yellow
    Barriers.
    
     o Area 6 of Musashi
     o Area 10 of Suruga
     o Area 17 of Suruga

     Ok Kai is really unique since you'll be moving on top of the trees instead of
    the floor. There's nothing here in the first area so proceed to the next one.

     In this area you'll find the Red Tengus, which are stronger than the blue ones
    and also spit fire. Be careful. There are no treasures, so proceed right once
    more.

     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

     Remembet the yellow barrier in Musashi? It leads here, so break it and return

    return to Area 7 and go left.
    
     --== Area 10 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

    Momohime and proceed left.

     There's just a Boar here. Kill it.
    
     --== Area 11 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Another Cave of Evil here, and with a white barrier. There's a lot of these.
    Hmm. Continue left.
    
     --== Area 12 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Remember the Ghosts you found in Musashi? There are 2 or 3 here. Remember to
    repel the flames to hit them back :). Also get the [TIGER-BILE TABLET] treasure
    that's on the upper left corner.
    
     --== Area 13 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's nothing here besides some Samurai. Get rid of them and proceed.
    
     --== Area 14 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     The area is protected by a white barrier, so there's no crossing it right now.
    Time to return to Area 4 (or use a Bronze Mirror) and go up to the next area.
    
     --== Area 15 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's a [IYO WHETSTONE] on top of the upper left mountains. Make sure to get
    it as well as the Spirits before proceeding.
    
     --== Area 16 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are 3 bomb-tossing Ninjas here and a treasure with [SMOKE BOMB] where
    the first Ninja is so make sure to grab it. There's also a Big Spirit on the
    right side of the area, don't miss it.
    
     --== Area 17 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nothing here so cross the river.
    
     --== Area 18 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are MANY Toads here, so use the different levels of the area to your
    advantage and get rid of them. Also spot the treasure on the top of the area
    (hidden amongst the leaves) with [TOAD OIL].
    
     --== Area 19 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     The end of Shinano and start of...

     You'll be ambushed by various Ninjas here. Nothing new. Grab [TIGER-BILE

     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's a new enemy here, which is an upgrade to the Ghosts. These Snow Ghosts
    shoot things at you too, only that way faster than the normal ghosts. Besides
    that, there's nothing changed about them. Grab [RADISH] from the left side and
    proceed.
    
     --== Area 4 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are some Tiny Onis here, so nothing to be scared about. There's also an

     Another monkey here, so that means Hot Springs! Go take a bath to revitalize

     --== Area 10 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Grab the [IYO WHETSTONE] from underneath you and kill the couple of Snow

     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Oh my God these Snow Ghosts are getting annoying, although they do give large

                                       BOSS #4
                                     IPPONDATARA
    
     Dear God Ippondatara is HUGE! For the first part of the fight you'll be
    attacking the foot. Yup, only the foot. He only has 3 attacks in this stage,
    which are:
    
     o Stomp: he raises his foot a little bit and then stomps the ground really
       quickly. This deals a lot of damage and can break your katana in one hit.
       Make sure to be airborne when this happens since the shockwave of the stomp
       can stun you for a couple seconds.
    
     o Multi-stomp: he raises his foot over the clouds and stomps the ground three
       times, hitting almost all the area. Make sure to move out of the way in
       between stomps.
    
     o Footswipe: he swings his foot across most of the area, kicking you. This is
       hard to evade but make sure to press down to quickly go down to the ground,
       hopefully evading the attack.
    
     After "defeating" the foot, its time to get ON it to attack the rest of the
    body. If you thought the previous phase was hard, this part is insane. There's
    a ton of things going on, from the hand, the whole hand, even beams coming out
    of his eyes. Here's a list of things happening here:
    
     o Punch: he punches towards the screen, so make sure to get the hell out of
       the way.
    
     o Swipe: he swipes across the area, first through the upper half of the
       screen, then through the lower half. Make sure to duck and jump over them.
    
     o Beams: there are two types of beams, a half-circle beam which can be
       deflected and a whole circle which explode upon contact.
    
     Note that if his Punch attack hits, you'll be off against his foot again, but
    you only have to deal a small amount of damage to be able to go back up. Once
    you deplete his second health bar, Ippondatara returns to his original self,
    which is a HUGE BOAR! Yes, this one is defenseless so take out all your Secret
    Arts and deal as much damage as possble before it goes into his giant form
    again.
    
     Once he transforms, the fight continues just like it started. Foot first, then
    body and the boar.
     _____________________________________________________________________________
    o~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o
    
     After the fight with this annoying boss, you'll get the [UNREPENTANT BLADE],
    which allows you break green barriers.

     Time to proceed with the story. First things first, we can now break green
    barriers. We can also make some new katanas, which is always nice. Time to
    backtrack ALL the way to Area 11 of Hida.  That's a long way. IF you have a
    Bronze Mirror, use it to get back to Hida's Area 5 and proceed left to Area 11,
    break the barrier and enter...

     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Treasure underneath you with a new item, the [DRAGON ELIXIR]. Not too shabby.

     Again 2 more ways to go. Left as always. There's some Ninjas here too so be

    coming here soon, so return to Area 5 and go right this time.

    Magatama raises the Souls you get by 5%, which is really good, but its somewhat
    expensive. There are 2 more cooking volumes, so make sure to buy these first.
    After buying whatever you decided to buy (remember not to buy the maps as its
    taking me a big effort in making them for you haha :) head over to the
    restaurant and buy something to eat if you want to.

     There's a Cave of Evil here, with a Green Barrier. Recommended level is 29.
    I'm 27 and got my ass whooped... twice. There's just a lot of Toads :'(.
    Anyway, proceed right once more (for more info of the Cave of Evil check out
    the section after the walkthrough).
    
     --== Area 19 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     You can go to Shinano from here, but in Shinano the path is blocked by a blue
    barrier, so return to Area 17 and go down.

     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Another forking path. This is the fourth one. Go right first.
    
     --== Area 21 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Grab the [IGARASHI WHETSTONE] near the entrance and the path is blocked with a

     --== Area 1 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's nothing new here. Nothing at all. Jump over the wall and into the next
    area.
    
     --== Area 2 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     This area looks really nice. Going into the castle like this... looks like a
    movie :). There's also some new enemies... finally! These Undead Armors are
    really slow, but hit quite hard. REALLY hard. You can't stagger them either
    like the Ninjas or Samurai, so get behind them and beat the crap out of them.
    
     --== Area 3 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     You'll be greeted by even more new enemies. These Gunners are just there
    waiting for you and zooming in on you. They only have 180 degrees of angle so
    if you're underneath them they can't do anything so take this as a tip ;).
    
     --== Area 4 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are some Ninjas here. Nothing too hard. Proceed left.
    
     --== Area 5 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     We have more Ninjas here and from all kind. Defeat them and go left.
    
     --== Area 6 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Grab the [DRAGON ELIXIR] from the right and proceed left. Kill the monks on
    the way out.
    
     --== Area 7 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     More Ninjas here. Take them out and proceed.
    
     --== Area 8 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     This is one gigantic room! It goes all the way up, but you need to go around
    all the place so do so.
    
     --== Area 9 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
      There are a couple stronger Samurai here, dressed in white and purple. These
    slash and a crescent beam comes out of it so be careful. Nevertheless, its the
    same ol' Samurai.
    
     --== Area 10 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Another tall area. Go left and enter the room on the left to find a chest with
    [EPICUREAN ARTS VOL. 3]. You can now cook Vegetable Rice Soup, which is pretty
    darn good. Return and go right.
    
     --== Area 11 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nothing here so cross over to Area 8 and cross this one as well to reach the
    next one.
    
     --== Area 12 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Once again nothing here. Are they going easy on us? That's better for me :).
    Go right.
    
     --== Area 13 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Another tall area. The room on the right has a single Purple Samurai so get
    rid of him and proceed out of the room and left into another room, which has
    [IGARASHI WHETSTONE]. The next room on the right has now 2 Purple Samurai.
    Pfft. Carry on.
    
     --== Area 14 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nothing here. Mmhmm. Go left. In Area 8 we now have a moving platform. Time
    your jump and proceed. If you fail, we'll be at the central part of Area 8 and
    have to go around again, so I don't recommend it.
    
     --== Area 15 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nothing here at all. Run across the hallway.
    
     --== Area 16 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are 2 Undead Armors here. Finally some enemies haha. Proceed left
    afterwards.
    
     --== Area 17 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Save up, heal, prepare and continue to the boss.

                                       BOSS #5
                                       CHIMERA
    
     This Chimera can be easy if you know its attacks, some of them are easy to
    evade/counter and some are a pain in you-know-where. Let me start with a list
    of his attacks:
    
     o Blue Flames: he shoots several little blue flames that follow you around.
       This is a good attack because for starters it doesn't deal that much damage,
       but you can hit them back at the Chimera to deal some extra damage.
    
       He has a second Blue Flame attack which is rapid-fire.
    
     o Paws: he hits using its paws. That's it. Block the attack or roll over.
    
     o Ball: he curls into a ball and bounces once or twice across the screen. Make
       sure to get away from him once you see he starts curling, which takes him
       probably like a second or two. The good thing is that he bounces really
       high, which gives you enough time to run underneath it.
    
       After his first health bar is gone, his bounces will be faster and when you
       see him bounce and stay high up in the air, he'll dive into you and stun
       himself if the attack doesn't hit. Make sure to jump over it and attack him
       nonstop. NOTE that you can do 2 complete Sword Slash combos (not Long
       Sword). Once you do 2, quickly move away since he curls again and bounces
       away.
    
     o Dive: while he's airborne, he dives from one side of the screen almost
       halfway through it. Make sure to jump over him when you see him coming.
    
     o Tornado: during his final stage, he transforms into a black tornado and
       sucks everything (lol?). He also shoots some Blue Flames while he's at it.
       Hit the blue flames while moving away from him. Otherwise, don't get near
       him until the Tornado stops.
     _____________________________________________________________________________
    o~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o
    
     After the fight with this annoying boss, you'll get the [EMPEROR OF THE
    PLAINS], which allows you break cyan barriers.

    usual, there's nothing in this first area, so go left.

     This area is weird. Speak to the monkey and Tengu here. Also grab [INFERNO

    right first.

    down at the fork to the next area.
    
     --== Area 2 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Hell looks incredible :o. It reminds me of the fire area of Odin Sphere.
    You'll be attacked by some Tiny Onis and a new enemy, a horse-type enemy. I
    dunno its name and I couldn't find it anywhere, but they resemble the Unicorn
    Knights from Odin Sphere so I'll be calling them Horse Knights >___>. These are
    tough and hard to stagger. Make sure to stay behind them and when they're about
    to stomp, jump to evade the shockwave.
    
     You'll also fight another hard enemy, the Ogre (as I like to call them). These
    are blue in appearance, but move the same as the Horse Knights so take care of
    it as well and proceed.

     Remember the damn Goblins? There are a ton in this area, and both Yellow and
    Red. Make sure to use Secret Arts like Cyclone to hit most of them several
    times. Go right at the fork to find a [CHAOS BELT]. Time to proceed.
    
     --== Area 5 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Here's yet another large demon, the Bull Knight. Just like the previous two,
    has the same moveset as the Horse and Ogre. After the fight, go right.
    
     --== Area 6 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's another Ogre here so get rid of it and go right.
    
     --== Area 7 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     A treasure at the end of the area has [JOUKENJI WHETSTONE]. That's it. Return
    to the previous area and go down.
    
     --== Area 8 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's another Horse Knight in this area. Have you noticed that all these
    large demons come with a couple Tiny Onis? Haha. Proceed right.
    
     --== Area 9 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Another cave area with more Goblins. I hate these things with  passion haha.
    Kill them all and go right.
    
     --== Area 10 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Oh man they are finally getting things interesting. You'll have to fight 2
    Ogres, a red and a blue one. Focus all your attacks on ONE at a time, but
    always keep an eye on the other one so you can evade its attacks.
    
     --== Area 11 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's nothing here so go right once more.

     --== Area 13 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Another Ogre in this area with some tiny Onis. Nothing different. Continue
    right.
    
     --== Area 14 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Just another Horse Knight in this one. Proceed to the last area.

                                      BOSS DEMON
    
     Ok now what the hell...?! We get swallowed and we're fighting in this thing's
    stomach. This first part is really easy as you only have to hit the walls of
    the stomach to get pucked out. Yup. You can be damaged by the acid dripping
    inside. Other than that, this is the easiest thing ever.
    
     Now this is the actual fight, and its tough. He hits really hard, and with his
    punched only. In most of his attacks, he engulfs himself in fire and starts
    punching. Here's a small list of his attacks:
    
     o Million Punches: he engulfs himself and starts punching a bunch of times in
       front of him. Make sure to stay away from him or get behind him.
    
     o Grab: he grabs you and smashes you into the floor a couple times. This
       dealt around 800 damage to me.
    
     o Meteor Punch: he vanishes from the screen and his punch gets soo big it
       cover most of the screen. This attack can be deadly so do as the game tells
       you and hide behind the rocks.
    
     o Eat: he can grab you once more and eat you, allowing you to deal some easy
       damage to his insides. Note that for this to happen, he'll stare towards the
       screen and start drooling. This is your cue to get in front of him.
    
     Note that you can stand on his head and belly to deal some damage, but even so
    the Tiny Onis still throw their sickles at you so either evade them or block
    them. Each time the games says to hide behind the rocks, quickly do so but
    behind him and if you can as far away from him. As he finishes his attack, run
    and quickly jump on its head to deal a ton of damage. Rinse and repeat.

     We get the [DEMONSLAYER] for defeating the Boss Demon, which breaks blue

    this time.
    
     --== Area 18 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Hop on top of the first red arch to find a [DRAGON NECKLACE]. Nice. Grab the

     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     We're greeted by some Tengus. It's been a while since we've seen these heh.

     --== Area 4 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Enter the abandoned shack to find a lot of souls and [HOT POT CUISINE VOL. 3].
    Return to the previous Area 3 and go up this time.
    
     --== Area 5 ==--

     --== Area 8 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     We get attacked by a swarm of those blackish things, which are harmless. You
    can also see the villages in the background. Really nice touch.
    
     --== Area 9 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Oh man this area is just tough to follow. We also get a new enemy, the Moths.
    These things poison you uppon contact so be careful. You'll also see how there
    are patches of grass amongst the clouds. Weird o_O. There's also a [LONGEVITY
    ELIXIR] on the upper left corner of the area. Proceed right afterwards.

    once again.

     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     You'll be attacked by 2 Ogres... which I though they were only in Hell. Guess
    not. You know how to deal with them at this point so just focus on one at a
    time and continue left.
    
     --== Area 15 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Another Moth area. I hate these things, big time. From this area go left
    first.
    
     --== Area 16 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Tnere's nothing here beside the [TUMULT GAUNTLETS]. Nab them, return to Area
    15 and follow the upper right path.
    
     --== Area 17 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     You'll be attacked by some Tiny Onis. Not much. Continue right.
    
     --== Area 18 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are a couple Tiny Onis in this one, and an Ogre. That's it. Focus on the

                                      BOSS  #7
                                       RAIJIN
    
     Raijin, the Goddess of Thunder. If you fight her the normal way, you're gonna
    get your ass whooped haha. She's really easy, even though there are a ton of
    things going on at the same time. For starters, her attacks, which all involve
    lightning (of course) and those medallions floating around her. Here's a small
    list:
    
     o Electric Orbs: she lets loose a ton of homming orbs, which can be countered
       by hitting them.
    
     o Multi-hit: she engulfs herself in thunder and hommes in at you. If she
       touches you, you'll be hit a lot of times. Note that each of the attacks
       doesn't deal a lot, but since there's a lot of hits, the overall damage is a
       lot. Run away from her when you see her do this.
    
     o Small thunder: she sits in the center of the screen and a small thunder
       appears from each side of her, spinning clockwise. You can simply jump
       around to dodge it. Not that hard.
    
     o Multi-thunder: several orbs appear on the bottom of the screen. This
       indicates that thunders are gonna fall there so look for an open space
       between them to evade this first phase of the attack. Afterwards, Raijin
       appears on top with a huge thunder, preparing to hit the ground with it.
       Jump out of the way to evade it.
    
     The key to make this battle easier is to use your Quick Draws. Use these
    mostly when attack #1 is in effect. Also having the Long Sword BLADE OF
    INFINITE FLIGHT is super helpful due to its Secret Art, DIVINE BLADE II, which
    lets you spin several times hitting her a lot and destroying the orbs and
    medallions too. You can spam this over and over and use those Whetstones you've
    been gathering to keep it at 100%.
    
     After some damage dealt, Raijin falls on her butt, with some fanservice of
    course, leaving her defenseless so take this opportunity to infict as much
    damage as possible. Also make sure to bring some good healing items, like those
    Peaches that restore 2000 HP. Use the Dashing Slashes to get out of harm's way
    too, this helps you evade some attacks and get away from her. Doing what I told
    you about using DIVINE BLADE II Secret Art, this can net you a Bronze Trophy.

     Ok, for starters, this is the last area of Momohime's story and obviously it's

    have the most powerful swords yet and continue.

    well, more enemies to slay and more experience for us. Proceed left.
    
     --== Area 8 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are some more Monks here. Yay. I remember them being way tougher in the
    beginning haha. Continue left.
    
     --== Area 9 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are 5 Moths in here, and its another tall area. Kill them all and grab
    the [DIVINE PANACEA] from the upper right corner. Continue left.
    
     --== Area 10 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's nothing in this area, so continue left.
    
     --== Area 11 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     More Moths in this one. Just do a Rising Slash on each of the to finish them
    off quickly.  Continue left.
    
     --== Area 12 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are 2 sets of battles here. The first one is against 3 Monks. Nothing
    new. The second one though has 6 Monks. Use Secret Arts to easily get rid of
    them :).
    
     --== Area 13 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Another tall area. There are 7 Moths in this one so get rid of them, get the
    [UCHIMORI WHETSTONE] from the upper left corner and proceed through the upper
    right path.
    
     --== Area 14 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nothing here. Continue right.
    
     --== Area 11 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     We're back in Area 11. There are 2 paths to follow. Kill the Moths first and
    enter the upper right room to find a chest with [DEMON GOD BELT], which raises
    your Vitality by 7. Not bad. Return to the previous room and follow the lower
    right path this time.
    
     --== Area 15 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's a swarm of black-thingies. Quick Draw them to death and proceed right.
    
     --== Area 9 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     More Moths as per usual in these tall areas. Nab [SMOKE BOMB] from the upper
    left corner and proceed right.
    
     --== Area 16 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     More Monks in this area. Nothing new. Continue.
    
     --== Area 7 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Moths, Moths and Moths! I hate them. Grab [DIVINE PANACEA] from the upper
    right corner and proceed left.
    
     --== Area 17 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     MOOOOONKS! Yes, more of them. Continue left. There's nothing in Area 9 besides
    moths so kill them and proceed to the left.
    
     --== Area 18 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nothing here thankfully so go left. Nothing in Area 11 besides Moths so carry
    on.
    
     --== Area 19 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Even more Monks appear in this area. Just how many are there?! Get rid of them
    and proceed left. Area 13 has more Moths. That's it. Proceed.
    
     --== Area 20 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     A stronger version of the Samurai are here, but nothing different. Kill them
    the same way and proceed left to find 6 more Monks. Dear God.
    
     --== Area 21 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     A crapton of Moths. Nothing hard, simply annoying. Climb to the top to get
    [BRONZE MIRROR] from the right side and continue left.
    
     --== Area 22 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     More Ninjas, why not! Kill them all and proceed.
    
     --== Area 23 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Just like before, climb to the top while killing Moths, grab [DIVINE PANACEA]
    from the upper right corner and continue left.
    
     --== Area 24 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are even more ninjas here. Kill them all and proceed.
    
     --== Area 25 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nothing here, besides 6 pesky Monks, so continue left.
    
     --== Area 26 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Oh my goodness we're finally here. The map was really hard to sketch out due
    to the lack of space. Anyway, save, heal up, prepare yourself for the last
    battle and proceed through the portal.
    
    o~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
                                     FINAL BOSS
                                     FUDO-MYOOU
    
     For starters, Fudo-Myoou isn't that hard. Even though its the final boss, it's
    not hard. Also notice that it doesn't have a health bar, but instead it has 6
    weak points you need to destroy in order to defeat this foe. Pretty much what
    they do is to shoot little lightning balls at you, either in a spiral shape or
    a larger ball that shoots smaller ones towards you. These are really slow and
    you can hit them to get rid of them. They like to teleport throughout the area
    so that's the annoying part.
    
     Note that the six weakpoints of Fudo-Myoou have a different color. Seitaka
    Doji represents the RED seals (the red looking Doji) while Kongara Doji
    represents the BLUE seals (the female looking Doji). What you need to do is
    attack them until they disappear. You'll be told that a seal has been broken,
    and where so go there by standing on the platforms and destroy the section of
    the body.
    
     As for their unique attacks, Seitaka (Red) tackles you while kongara (Blue)
    raises her staff and unleashes a large blue lightning ball. Get away from her
    as soon as you see it coming. Once you hear them chanting and they merge
    together, in which they look like 2 spirits (white and red). Quickly get away
    from them because they unleash three sets of 2 fireblasts in 2 different
    directions each time, which deals huge damage.
    
     Once only the head remains, the fight gets more serious. Besides the rocks
    falling down even faster, there are golden Lotus blossoms moving across the
    screen, in which shoot a continuous lightning beam from its point to the
    ground. Some of these move as well so make sure you jump over them. You can
    attack and destroy them, but your best bet is to just focus on the Dojis.
     _____________________________________________________________________________
    o~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o
    
     You'll get the [DESCENT INTO MISERY] Blade after the battle. Watch the scenes
    and talk to the NPCs that appear. And with this we reach the end of Momohime's
    story. T'was good, but we will come back later to see more ;). After the
    credits roll, you'll unlock Fury Mode, you'll be able to warp between save
    points, you'll be told about other endings... and you'll get a Trophy. Also
    make sure to save your game.
    
     If you already had beaten Kisuke's story, you'll also be told about two
    special blades and how to get the second endings, you can now break all those
    pesky white barriers and view the credits from the title screen.

     You'll be greeted by some Ninjas here. These are the most basic enemies in the

    here has a [HEALING PELLET]. Proceed to the upper right exit.

     There are more Ninjas towards the end of the area, which shouldn't pose a
    treath. Nothing else. Continue.
    
     --== Area 10 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     More Ninjas here, in this open Area. Be careful of the bombs they throw. They
    are really powerful. You can hit them back so do so if needed. Proceed right.
    
     --== Area 11 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     This area is the same as before, an open area with Ninjas. Take care of them
    and proceed right.

     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's another abandoned shack here, which contains [HEALING PELLET x2].
    return outside and go right.

     A swarm of black spirits (???) appear. Use a simple Quick Draw to kill them

                                       BOSS  #1
                                       KUROZARU
    
     Ok, Kurozaru is big, but not hard at all. For starters he has 3 attacks:
    
     o Pinwheel Shuriken: he tosses the shuriken forward and comes back like a
       boomerang. Note that if he tosses it on the lower part, it'll come back in
       the upper part and the other way around. Simply stay put/jump over it to
       evade it.
    
     o Punch: getting too close to him makes him bitch-slap you haha. Quickly dodge
       if you see him.
    
     o Stomp: he stomps the ground, creating a shockwave. Simply jump over it.
    
     This first part of the boss is really easy. His most annoying attack is the
    punch, because its really fast. When you get rid of the first health bar, he'll
    get angry and some sort of redish aura emanates from him. He'll then have two
    more attacks:
    
     o Multi stomp: he jumps several times, creating a shockwave each time he
       lands. You can evade this completely be quickly running to a side.
    
     o Giant shuriken: he makes his pinwheel shuriken huge and tosses it in front
       of him. This one doesn't come back, which is good. Quickly get behind him
       when you see the shuriken getting bigger.
    
     The best way to go on this battle is to simply do a quick combo, Dash Attack
    to the other side of him and rinse/repeat. Really not that hard of a boss.

     Watch the scene after the fight and you'll get the [NAGASONE KOTETSU], which

    | Culinary Arts Vol. 1  |  60 Mon |  from the top of the middle building and
    | Epicurean Arts Vol. 1 |  60 Mon |  there are 3 rooms, one of them has a

    | Map of Iga            |  30 Mon |  and the third one has the High Priest. The
    '-----------------------'---------'  merchant has some items useful this early
                                         in the game. Both the Culinary and
    Epicurean arts are good since they allow you to cook, being able to make Rice
    Balls and Cabbage Stew. Make sure to buy some Bags of Rice and Cabbages so
    you're able to make some. The Ninja Belt is meh, I recommend not buying it
    since there's still no need to raise your vitality, unless you want to use a
    newer Katana. Besides that, replenish your healing items, leave and proceed
    left.
    
     --== Area 8 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's nothing in this area so proceed left.
    
     --== Area 9 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are some Umbrella guys here. When fighting these guys, if you jump
    you'll be attacked by them and damaged big time. Counter this by staying on the
    ground and attacking them as fast as you can. At this fork, go left.
    
     --== Area 10 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     This area leads to Yamato, but we don't wanna go there now, and we can't since
    the path is blocked by a green barrier. Backtrack to Area 4 and go right.
    
     --== Area 11 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are some Umbrella guys here. Nothing too hard. Kill them, nab [RECOVERY

     --== Area 12 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's a fork here, so go right first.
    
     --== Area 13 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are some Kappas here, which are some of the most annoying enemies. Kill
    them and proceed right.
    
     --== Area 14 ==--

     The path to Omi is also blocked by a green barrier so return to Area 12 and
    proceed south across the bridge.
    
     --== Area 15 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     You'll find a Monkey here which takes you to the Hot Springs and heals you
    completely. Do so, grab [HERBAL REMEDY] from the left side and you'll be
    attacked by some Ninjas so be careful.
    
     --== Area 16 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's a Cave of Evil here with a red barrier, which you can do, but
    recommended level is 9. Continue left.

    There's a little kid here that sells Tofu. Buy some if wanted/needed and take
    the fork to the north.
    
     --== Area 18 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Kill the Samurai that appear here and as you proceed left you'll come across a
    well. Go down it to grab some souls. Return outside, grab the [HERBAL REMEDY]
    from the right, return to the previous area and go left.
    
     --== Area 19 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Another forking path here. Take it south.

    Samurai. The second has a samurai and nothing. The third has a Ghost and a
    spirit of a good Ghost. There's also a [SMOKE BOMB] in the lower right corner.
    Continue right.

     There's nothing here so continue right.
    
     --== Area 23 ==--

     You'll be attacked by some Ninjas but nothing too serious. Continue left.
    
     --== Area 27 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's one tall building and the rooms from top to bottom have: [RADISH x2],
    nothing and a Samurai. Continue left.

                                   GIANT CENTIPEDES
    
     Ok so we're up against 3 Giant Centipedes and to be honest this has to be one
    of the easiest battles ever. You can rank so really high combos here to so go
    for it. They have 3 attacks:
    
     o Fireballs: they shoot blue fireballs at you, one for each part of their
       body, but these can be hit back so do so.
    
     o Pincer attack: they attack with their mouths. They try to bite you so just
       evade them.
    
     o Rampage: they stop for a little bit (this is your que) and tackle everything
       in front of them. This hurts quite a bit, but you can easily evade this
       attack. Note that if they miss, they come around and try to hit you again.
    
     These are their only attacks. Quite simple. Also note that the shorter they
    get, the faster. Its best to use a Long Sword due to its range. You can hit
    several parts of their bodies at once, and more than one Centipede at once too.

     After the battle we gain the [SWORD OF THE SHADOWS], which lets us break

     First of all, grab the [BRONZE MIRROR] from the upper right corner and grab

    You can try the orange-barrier Cave of Evil, but level 16 or higher is

     --== Area 4 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Oh MY GOD!!! I died 3 times in this area. There are some annoying yellow
    Goblins and some grey ones! These are tough. They run really fast and hit
    really hard. Try having them in the pit so that they don't attack you. If one
    comes out, wait for it and perform a Rising Slash. Keep these things in the air
    and always do a Rising Slash. Don't attack them head on. They can kill you in
    2-3 hits so be careful. The upper right corner has [BEAR-BILE TABLET].
    
     --== Area 5 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Before anything, ANOTHER FREAKING annoying area. There are grey and yellow
    Goblins, but also there are some Tiny Onis. There's an [OMURA WHETSTONE] in the
    lower right corner.
    
     --== Area 6 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's a bunch on Ninjas here (thankfully no more grey Goblins). Go right
    now.
    
     --== Area 7 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Be careful because there's some traps hidden in between the leaves on the
    ground. You can tell right away where they are so approach them slowly so they
    appear and smack them to break them. There's also a Ninja at the end.
    
     --== Area 8 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Enter the abandoned shack to find some [KITSUNE GAUNTLETS] laying on the
    ground. Exit and continue right. There are some Undead Armors here. These fight
    rather similar to Samurai but don't block your attacks. They are harder to
    stagger too and hit really hard so be careful.
    
     --== Area 9 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     More traps with a Ninja at the end. Nab [SWEET POTATO] before leaving.

                                      TORAHIME
    
     Damn this battle is annoying. First of all there are some Undead Armors here
    as well as Torahime. She starts by running off to the right, leaving you to
    play with the Undead Armors. While you're doing so, she starts shooting arrows
    at you offscreen, which is a pain. Luckily, the bamboo traps you saw earlier
    serve as protection, at least when the arrows are coming low.
    
     As you kill the Undead Armors, you gotta go chase Torahime. While doing so,
    she's obviously shooting arrows at you, so gotta evade them and even jump over
    the bamboo traps. She only attacks with the arrows, but she can shoot many at a
    time, or make them rain. As she gets damaged, she charges towards the other
    side of the screen. Also note that the damn horse can also stomp creating
    little shockwaves, which is annoying.
    
     Make sure to always stay behind her, because staying in front will make your
    blade to break due to several arrows shot at once. This is basically it. You
    gotta be chasing her from one side of the area to the other. Make sure to stay
    close to her and behind her.

     Another fork in the path. Follow the upper right path, but you'll be attacked
    by Blue Tengus before leaving. Nab [SMOKE BOMB] from the upper left corner.

     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     The Cave of Evil here has a yellow barrier, which is "doable" but level 23 is
    recommended. You've got to fight 100 Tengus, from both Red and Blue ones.
    Sounds very hard, but if you have the Storm of Dawn blade with its Gale I
    Secret Art, you'll plow through this one. Remember that there's also a monkey
    outside so use it if needed.

                                        SAYO
    
     Oh my God Sayo is really cute :). So cute that she's really dangerous.
    Seriously, she's really annoying and hard. She likes to run around the
    battleground. She has many attacks, which are the following:
    
     o Talismans: she tosses a couple of Talismans in the air. Hit these as soon as
       you can since they let lightning rain down on you.
    
     o Bombs: as she runs around, she slips and a bunch of bombs fall out of her
       (or she does it on purpose? o_O), exploding and damaging you. When you see
       the bombs fall out, quickly jump behind her.
    
     o Slash: when you're up close to her, she'll slash you/smack you. This does
       quite some damage for what it is, so be careful.
    
     o Crow lift: she summons some crows and these lift her up, hovering around the
       area. You have to hit her while airborne.
    
     o Fireworks: while airborne, she tosses a huge bomb which explodes like a
       firework. This one is really easy to evade. She can also drop a ton of small
       bombs so you too stay airborne until they explode.
    
     o Homming Crows: just before she's gonna get off her crows, there will be a
       ton of these that home in at you from outside the screen. Make sure to keep
       on hitting them so you can sustain the attack with little damage. This one
       is really hard to just avoid, so its better to just attack these.
    
     o Salamander: this attack is pretty similar to the homming crows, only that
       this time its fireballs and they hurt even more. They can break your blades
       easily so make sure to evade them
    
     As you can see, some of her attacks are pretty lethal since its really hard to
    evade them. Her bombs however can hit her too, which deal almost half a bar of
    health, which is amazingly good but pretty hard for it to happen.
     _____________________________________________________________________________

     After the battle we gain the [BLADE OF THE RAVENS], which lets us break green
    barriers.

     Oh my freaking God, this will annoy you just as much as it does to me. We have
    to go to Yamato now. First use a Bronze Mirror and you'll be back at the shrine
    in Totomi. From here:
    
     o Totomi -> Mikawa
     o Mikawa -> Owari
     o Owari -> Ise
     o Ise -> Iga
     o Iga -> Yamato
    
     NOTE: if you use the hot springs in Mikawa, you'll find Yuzuruha half naked.
    Dear god :3.

    left to find [SAKE x3]. The next room on the right has [DRAGON ELIXIR x2]. The
    next room on the left has [EPICUREAN ARTS VOL. 3], then continue to the right.

     There are some Ninjas with Pinwheel Shurikens so take these out first and
    continue right. Again in Area 3 there are some Spiders, which leech on to you
    so hit hit hit them until they die. They are pretty easy, but that bite is
    annoying. Grab [MANTIS GAUNTLETS] from the corner and go right.
    
     --== Area 9 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are more Spiders in this area so Quick Draw them to death and continue
    right.

     Nothing here so proceed right to the last area.

                                        BOSS #5
                                       TSUCHIGUMO
    
     Dear goodness Tsuchigumo is easy, but the fight is annoying as hell.
    Tsuchigumo has only 2 attacks:
    
     o Web shot: he shoots a torrent of web all around that renders your movement.
       Quickly mash buttons to get out of it. Note that this attack deals 1 dmg per
       hit but hits you so many times and so quick that it's a lot.
    
     o Blue soul: it shoots 3 large blue fireballs and when they come in contact
       with the floor several little blue souls come flying upwards. Simply stay
       away from them.
    
     What makes this battle so annoying are the gazzillion of Spiders that are
    running around the area. These munch at you and can deal some damage. They also
    start bitting from afar and move towards you in a straight line. Ignore the
    Spiders as much as you can and focus on Tsuchigumo.
    
     Make note that the use of Long Swords is imperative to your quick success, and
    more if you have the Long Sword Sanctified Blade, which its Secret Art Radiant
    Moon I is pretty much a Quick Draw, letting you kill most if not all the
    Spiders on screen, but also their souls regenerate your Sword so you can use it
    a ton. Overall an easy fight but annoying.

                                   CHIGURUI BISHAMON
    
     Finally a challenging boss. After that spider thing I think we deserve this
    one. He is really big to begin with and has this huge armor on. In most of his
    attacks, you can see him absorbing souls and unleashing them in his attacks,
    which are the following:
    
     o Sword: souls start plowing into his sword and will slash in front of him,
       creating some sort of shockwave, so when you see him doing it, get out of
       the way.
    
     o Chest: souls start going into his chest area and creates some sort of
       whirlwind in front of his chest. Simply don't approach him.
    
     o Head: when souls start going inside his head/helm, he'll unleash some sort
       of wave on the bottom of the area. Stay airborne to evade it.
    
       Other than this, he can also make it rain some arrows down so be careful
       which attack he unleashes doing this.
    
     Ok, he's really not that hard. It just takes him so much time to prepare each
    attack that knowing what they do you can easily jump over them/roll out of the
    way. To be quite honest, Sayo was harder than this guy.

     Down here you'll have to fight a couple Ninjas. Really easy. Grab the [HOT POT

     Time to save your game, get healed up, and start prepping your items/equipment
    for the next boss battle, which is the hardest one so far.
    
    o~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
                                        BOSS #7
                                      DRAGON  GOD
    
     Ok, so finally the hardest boss yet and probably the hardest one of Kisuke's
    story. He starts off pretty easy like most bosses, which just a couple attacks:
    
     o Bite: lightning runs through his body and bites twice, once directly in
       front of him and one low near the ground. Simply go behind him when you see
       the lightning appear.
    
     o Fire Pillar: he shoots a fireball to the ground and a fire pillar comes out
       of the impact. Stay away from the explosion.
    
     o Explosive fireballs: he shoots a fireball onto the ground and it creates a
       fiery shockwave. Stay away from this.
    
     This first part is really easy and you'll breeze through it but when it gets
    serious, it REALLY gets serious. When the screen blackens, he'll dive into the
    ground and start the massacre. Yes, he attacks nonstop and you can't hurt him,
    even if you're close. The attacks he does are the following:
    
     o Fire stone: he shoots a stone that's on fire and this one shoots several
       tiny fireballs all around it.
    
     o Homming fireballs: he shoots a gazillion of tiny fireballs and heat-seek
       you, so evade them as best as you can.
    
     o Fire sweep: he shoots several fireballs that cover the lower part of the
       area and cross really fast. Jump over them.
    
     Like I said, this is all about dodging, evading and countering whatever you
    can. Make sure to stay healed through this part of the fight. Note that you can
    get your blades broken in this stage so make sure to bring some Whetstones to
    repair them. And if you think that's it, nope, THERE'S EVEN MORE ATTACKS. Here
    they are:
    
     o Dark cloud: not an attack per se but a move he does to do his next 2
       attacks. He goes into the background in some sort of dark cloud.
    
     o Blue orbs: he shoots some blue lightning orbs that home in at you. These are
       really slow and you can hit them to dissolve them so do so.
    
     o Lightning breath: while you evade or hit the blue orbs, he approaches you
       from the background, he fills his mouth with lightning and spits it out on
       the floor. Stay away from him.
    
     As you can see, he has a TON of attacks, but with the right blades he can be
    easier. Yes. Make sure to bring BIZENOSAFUNE KANEMITSU with Secret Art TEMPEST
    I and HAILSTORM with Secret Art DRAGONFLY II. At least these 2 swords, which
    should be the strongest. The first one allows you to attack the Dragon God
    several times at once while repelling all attacks. The second one I really
    recommend using it when you take the defensive stance. Since this Secret Art
    makes Kisuke jump high in the air and start spinning, the attacks won't hit you
    and the ones that are repel-able will bounce back.
    
     Like I said and repeat, make sure to bring a ton of healing items, both the
    ones that fill you and those that don't. I usually have the Roasted Squid
    equipped to heal 2500 HP in one go and if I need more, the Longevity Elixir
    restore 50HP so you can heal some more without having to wait for the bar to go
    down.

     We got to the final act of Kisuke's story. It's a pretty lenghty one so let's
    get started with it. Start by using a Bronze Mirror to get back to Suruga and
    from here simply run right across the areas to reach the purple barrier. Break
    it and enter...

     --== Area 1 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Start by going right and grab [SATSUMA ORANGE] from under the statues at the
    far right. Continue on.
    
     --== Area 2 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Another Cave of Evil here, but has a white barrier, which means its one of the
    hardest ones. Ok we're not coming here in a long time. Proceed right.
    
     --== Area 3 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Speak to the monkey if you wanna go to the hot springs. Torahime is here and
    has something really nice to say so I really recommend you coming :). There are
    also some Samurai here.
    
     --== Area 4 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's a [BRONZE MIRROR] in the upper right corner. No enemies here, which is
    REALLY weird so proceed through the lower right path first.
    
     --== Area 5 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Grab the [PEACH] from the end of the Area, speak to the people here if you
    need their services, return to the previous area and follow the upper right
    path this time.
    
     --== Area 6 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Time to cross the river, and no Toads nor Kappas to be found. Continue right.
    
     --== Area 7 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are some Tengus here. Nothing hard. Continue right.
    
     --== Area 8 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nothing here but souls. Get them all and proceed into the cave.
    
     --== Area 9 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are Goblins here. You know what to do with these damn things. Continue
    right.
    
     --== Area 10 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Time to save your game and heal yourself. Speak to Yuzuruha and continue
    right.
    
     --== Area 11 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's an [UCHIMORI WHETSTONE] in the upper left part of the area so get it,
    the souls and proceed right.
    
     --== Area 12 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

     Grab the [PEACH] from the upper right branch before continuing right.
    
     --== Area 2 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     This is a large area, but locate the area's treasure on top on the right-most
    tree for an [SMOKE BOMB]. Follow the lower right path first.
    
     --== Area 3 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     We're in a cave now. This is a first. There are several Tiny Onis here, which
    are still not a threat, and much less with new and more powerful swords. Head
    east here.
    
     --== Area 4 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's a treasure in the upper left corner of the area, so use the branches
    to get [UCHIMORI WHETSTONE]. Nothing else. Proceed east once more.
    
     --== Area 5 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nothing here besides the white barrier so return to Area 2 and follow the
    upper right path this time.
    
     --== Area 6 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     The Treasure is right in front of you with a [DIVINE PANACEA]. Get it and
    speak to the monkey if so desired who's sitting on the left side. Continue
    right
    
     --== Area 7 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's a Cave of Evil with a purple barrier. Try your luck if you want but
    you need to be at least level 47 (at least recommended) to do it. If you've
    beaten Momohime's story, you'll know the enemies, you fight a trio of Blue
    Monks (Momohime's first boss), then a swarm of those black things and then a
    Furball, which isn't hard at all. You'll get a Triangle if you so desire to get
    it.
    
     --== Area 8 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are a couple Ninjas. That's it. Continue right.
    
     --== Area 9 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Make sure to check the upper right branch for a [PHEASANT]. Proceed right
    afterwards.
    
     --== Area 10 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     You'll find Yuzuruha here, as well as a save point. Speak to her, save up and
    continue right to the next area.
    
     --== Area 11 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     We're in the village now. Speak to the people here... man they are BUFFED!
    Look at them muscles haha. Anyway, speaking to the woman allows you to enter
    the restaurant and eat, which restores your
    health and gives you Spirit.
                                                    .--------------------.--------.
     Obviously, the pricier the food the more you   | Steamed White Rice |  8 Mon |
    get, and its good. The Tempura Udon gives you   | Kitsune Udon       | 16 Mon |
    a lot of Spirit (1,920) so grab some if so      | Herring Soba       | 24 Mon |
    desired.                                        | Tempura Udon       | 32 Mon |

    | Bag of Rice            |  20 Mon |  that much to sell. He only has the
    | Cabbage                |   7 Mon |  valuable Perfect Hot Pots Volumes, which
    | Tofu                   |  10 Mon |  are kinda expensive but totally worth it.
    | Fried Tofu             |  10 Mon |  Besides that, fully restock on

     Remember Momohime's last section? This one is much bigger so lets get started.
    There's nothing here like always so jump over the wall.
    
     --== Area 2 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nothing here either so continue to the right.
    
     --== Area 3 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are many bomb-throwing Ninjas here, as well as those with Pinwheel
    Shurikens, and to top it of, they are hard to stagger so be careful. Continue
    right.
    
     --== Area 4 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are many Gunners in this tall area so kill them if desired and follow
    the lower right path first.
    
     --== Area 5 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are some Monks in this burning room so kill them, get [DIVINE PANACEA]
    from the end of the room, return to the previous area and follow the upper left
    path this time.
    
     --== Area 6 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's only a [PEACH] in this burning room so get it, return to the previous
    area and follow the upper right path this time.
    
     --== Area 7 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are some non-staggering Ninjas here so kill and proceed.
    
     --== Area 8 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nothing here so continue right.
    
     --== Area 9 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     More non-staggering Ninjas here. Kill as many as you want and proceed.
    
     --== Area 10 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nothing here again so continue right.
    
     --== Area 11 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Another tall area so go to the top and enter the door.
    
     --== Area 12 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's only a chest with [SMOKE BOMB x2] so get it, return to the previous
    area and enter the right path (the one at the bottom).
    
     --== Area 13 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nothing here. Go right.
    
     --== Area 14 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are some Undead Armors here so you know how to kill these. Continue on
    to the right.
    
     --== Area 15 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Another tall area but we can only go right right now. Grab all the souls
    floating around and proceed right.
    
     --== Area 16 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nothing here. It just connects the lower and upper part in the previous area
    so just follow the path. When in Area 15 again, simply go left and enter the
    next area.
    
     --== Area 17 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nab the [BRONZE MIRROR] and return outside. In Area 15, there's a ton of
    Ninjas all the way up, so fight them little by little, taking care of the
    Pinwheel Shuriken and chain Ninjas first. Go to the top and enter the upper
    left area.
    
     --== Area 18 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     A whole bunch of Ninjas. That's it. These get harder as the levels progress,
    huh? Continue left.
    
     --== Area 19 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Even more Ninjas here. Kill them or just ignore them (like I did) on to the
    next area.
    
     --== Area 20 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Some Gunners appear here along with some flying Ninjas. Dear God the enemies
    are getting really annoying. Continue left.
    
     --== Area 21 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Another tall area with several exits. There are many Ninjas here so you better
    know what to do after thousands of Ninjas killed haha. Follow the lower left
    path first.
    
     --== Area 22 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are some Ninjas and these aholes now stand on the ceiling so spot their
    shadows on the floor and kick their ass. Grab [TOAD OIL x2], return to the
    previous area and follow the upper right path now.
    
     --== Area 23 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There's only a [DEMON GOD BELT] in this area so get it, return to the previous
    area and go left.
    
     --== Area 24 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     There are 2 Undead Armors here. Finally a break after so many Ninjas. Kill the
    and continue left.
    
     --== Area 25 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Another tall area so take the left path first.
    
     --== Area 26 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Nab the lonely [DIVINE PANACEA] from the left side, return to the previous
    area and follow the upper right path this time.
    
     --== Area 27 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Another bunch of annoying Ninjas. Kill them and proceed right.
    
     --== Area 28 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Now this is a REAAAAAAAALLY tall area. Thankfully there are no enemies so go
    all the way up to the last area.
    
     --== Area 29 ==--
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
      Oh my goodness we're finally here. The map was really hard to sketch out due
    to the lack of space. Anyway, save, heal up, prepare yourself for the last
    battle and proceed through the portal.

                                     FINAL BOSS
                             INUGAMI TSUNAYOSHI TOKUGAWA
    
     Ok, so miser Inugami Tsunayoshi Tokugawa. The last boss of Kisuke's story and
    its divided in 2 phases, so lets talk a little about the first one shall we? We
    start with Tokugawa, this old man has just 5 attacks, which are the following:
    
     o Summon: he summons samurai ghosts which are sitting and move forward,
       attacking you. You can attack them and make them disappear, but they move
       rather fast so I recommed just evading/jumping them.
    
     o Teleport: he teleports from one part of the room to another. Note that this
       move hurts you when it happens so when you see his hand fan glowing blue,
       dodge to avoid it.
    
     o Bitch-slap: talking about his hand fan, whenever it glows red (dark brown?),
       he'll do the same move as if he was going to teleport, but he only does it
       to attack you in the same way, so simply dodge and return to the massacre.
    
     o Clones: he creates 2 clones of himself, which are glowing red. Ignore these
       and simply focus all your attacks on the original one. Being fast and
       furious here is your best chance of countering this attack.
    
     o Lightning: when you attack him enough he'll fall down on the floor, but when
       this happens, he shoots a lightning bolt from the top. You can see where its
       going to land since you can see the light. Dodge and counterattack.
    
     As you can see, he's not hard at all. The ghosts are what makes this battle
    tough. Whenever he teleports, he immediately summons his ghosts and the amount
    he summons varies and the way the are summoned varies as well. I recommend
    running towards him as soon as he teleports and when the ghosts appear, quickly
    dodge roll behind them and attack. This way you can evade the ghosts
    completely.
    
     Whenever you deplete all the health bars, its time for the second phase, in
    which he transforms into a dog, a really big one but he's just a BIT harder
    than the old man. A little list of attacks is incoming:
    
     o Bite: he opens his jaw really wide and tries to bite everything he has in
       front. Quickly get behind him to avoid the attack.
    
     o HUGE bite: he disappears from the screen and suddenly you can see his jaw
       and teeth in the background. When this happens quickly get the hell out of
       the way and run to the other side of the area since he attacks almost all
       that side and hurt, really bad.
    
     o Poison Mist: he sometimes has poison mist underneath him. Don't get near it
       or you'll be poisoned.
    
     o Lightning: he has the same lightning attack as above so you know how to
       evade it.
    
     o Multi attack: whenever you see him glowing a darkish brown, several "arms"
       appear and attack you. The attack's range is his whole body so just don't be
       near him when you see him glow.
    
     o Vortex: not really an attack but you'll see some vortexes around the area.
       If you approach these some hands with weapons come out and attack you. Stay
       away from these things.
    
     As you can see, he has a lot of attacks but once you know how the attacks work
    and how to evade them, you'll do just fine. Having the sword Beguiling Blade
    with the Secret Art Meteor II deals tons of damage so make sure to use it :).
     _____________________________________________________________________________
    o~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o
    
     You'll get the [THE THREADS OF FATE] Blade after the battle. Watch the scenes
    and talk to the NPCs that appear. Make sure to jump to the top using the lotus
    as platforms.
    
     And with this we reach the end of Kisuke's story. T'was good, but we will come
    back later to see more ;). After the credits roll, you'll unlock Fury Mode,
    you'll be able to warp between save points, you'll be told about other
    endings... and you'll get a Trophy. Also make sure to save your game.
    
     If you already had beaten Momohime's story, you'll also be told about two
    special blades and how to get the second endings, you can now break all those
    pesky white barriers and view the credits from the title screen.

     The little section dedicated to the second and third endings of the game for
    both characters. This either makes the original ending longer or changes it,
    which is pretty neat.

     For the second endings, for both Momohime and Kisuke, you have to return to
    the last area of their stories:
    
     o Momohime: Area 26 of Yamato: Mt. Kongo, Shingon-Renge Main Temple.
     o Kisuke: Area 29 of Musashi: Edo Castle, Main Gate.
    
     Once you get here, equip the Threads of Fate (obtainable after finishing
    Kisuke's story) and Descent Into Missery (obtainable after finishing Momohime's
    story). Once you've done so, save your game and go through the portal. While
    playing as Momohime, you'll fight Kisuke and when playing as Kisuke, you'll
    fight Momohime.
    
     Note that these characters, obviously, fight in the same way you used them for
    several hours so you know their tricks. They do however block a lot, even more
    than Samurai, so just attack them over and over until the blade breaks. Once it
    happens, wait for them to get up and start pummeling them into oblivion. They
    are really easy and shouldn't pose any threat.
    
     Also note, when you perform a Quick Draw, the other character will most likely
    perform it as well as means to counter yours, and looks really neat :).
    
     o When finishing Momohime's second ending, you'll get [BLADE OF TORTURED
       SOULS].
    
     o When finishing Kisuke's second ending, you'll get [SHIMMERING NEW MOON].
    
     These are really nice endings, specially Momohime's :).

     Ok for the third endings, we've got to forge Oboro Muramasa, which is the last
    blade and you've got to equip it, which is only doable at level 93 or 94, so
    time to level up and head to the last boss. You'll be fighting the last boss of
    Momohime and Kisuke over again, only that we are stronger and have the ultimate
    blade. Note that they are stronger too so give it your best.0

                                        BOSS #1
                                       BLUE MONK
    
     A really easy first boss fight. He has a couple attacks and hit hard, but he's
    too slow for his own good and gives away when he's gonna attack so you can
    evade easily. Also note that the attacks its best to evade them by either
    rolling or using Dash Slash instead of blocking since his attacks can break
    your Blades quite easily.
    
     A list of his attacks:
    
     o He tosses 5 bronze objects in the air and when they fall they create a
       pillar of fire. Note that the objects 1, 3 and 5 fall first, then the second
       and fourth ones so make sure to Dash Slash to evade the attack and deal some
       quick damage. Note that he chants before tossing them. This is your cue.
    
     o He jumps forward and tries to land on you. Dash Slash it.
    
     o He groans, jump backwards and spit out some blue flames that travel in an
       up/down pattern. Run towards his position and Dash Slash him.
    
     o If you're really close, he'll stomp you.
    
     o Last but not least he spits fire on the ground that travel a long distance.
       Jump over it and use Dash Slash to stay in the air.
    
     As you can see, not a hard boss at all, but it does do some damage so heal up
    as necessary.

                                       BOSS  #2
                                       WANYUUDO
    
     Wanyuudo is a cartwheel with fire surrounding it. He's not that hard, but his
    fire attacks can be pretty annoying, and more if you didn't equip the accessory
    I told you about earlier. His attacks consist of the following.
    
     o He starts spinning around and leaves a trail of fire that does a lot of
       damage and stays there for like 8 seconds. Move to a side as fast as you can
       using a Dash Slash.
    
     o He starts levitating and dripping fire, leaving a puddle which stays there
       for a long time and this puddle starts shooting little fireballs upwards.
       You can attack it to get rid of it, but I recommend staying away from there
       until it goes away.
    
     o He shoots a large purple orb-thingy up in the air and this breaks into
       several smaller ones, having a rain of purple orbs. It takes like 5 seconds
       to pop, so get the heck away from the area.
    
     o Once you deplete the first bar, he starts levitating, gets covered in a
       black aura and starts shooting fireballs in a circle. Attack the fireballs
       to get rid of them.
    
     Overall not a tough boss. In his final stages, he gets really fast which can
    be intimidating but he still deals the same damage. In his very last stage, he
    starts a fireball rain, which can kill you if you're not careful. Make sure to
    keep your healing items ready to use whenever you need to :).

                                       BOSS  #3
                                       YUKINOJO
    
     Yukinojo, if the normal Samurai enemies are annoying, Yukinojo takes the
    prize. He's pretty much a regular Samurai but has more range and when he
    slashed, a purple beam comes out of the sword... you get the point. He has less
    health than the previous 2 bosses, but damaging him is really hard since he
    blocks most of your attacks.
    
     Just like with Samurai, doing a Charged Slash is the best so you can break his
    katana and deal some actual damage. Note that besides the Charged Slash, you'll
    need to attack him some more (or use a second Charged Slash) to destroy the
    katana.
    
     When his katana is complete, most of his attacks will have beams coming out of
    it, making his range wider. When its broken, he has no range whatsoever and
    deals little damage so go all-out when it happens. Make sure to block his
    attacks constantly be beware because you can get your blades broken. Stay on
    your toes and be prepared to block / jump / roll away from him whenever needed.

                                       BOSS #4
                                     IPPONDATARA
    
     Dear God Ippondatara is HUGE! For the first part of the fight you'll be
    attacking the foot. Yup, only the foot. He only has 3 attacks in this stage,
    which are:
    
     o Stomp: he raises his foot a little bit and then stomps the ground really
       quickly. This deals a lot of damage and can break your katana in one hit.
       Make sure to be airborne when this happens since the shockwave of the stomp
       can stun you for a couple seconds.
    
     o Multi-stomp: he raises his foot over the clouds and stomps the ground three
       times, hitting almost all the area. Make sure to move out of the way in
       between stomps.
    
     o Footswipe: he swings his foot across most of the area, kicking you. This is
       hard to evade but make sure to press down to quickly go down to the ground,
       hopefully evading the attack.
    
     After "defeating" the foot, its time to get ON it to attack the rest of the
    body. If you thought the previous phase was hard, this part is insane. There's
    a ton of things going on, from the hand, the whole hand, even beams coming out
    of his eyes. Here's a list of things happening here:
    
     o Punch: he punches towards the screen, so make sure to get the hell out of
       the way.
    
     o Swipe: he swipes across the area, first through the upper half of the
       screen, then through the lower half. Make sure to duck and jump over them.
    
     o Beams: there are two types of beams, a half-circle beam which can be
       deflected and a whole circle which explode upon contact.
    
     Note that if his Punch attack hits, you'll be off against his foot again, but
    you only have to deal a small amount of damage to be able to go back up. Once
    you deplete his second health bar, Ippondatara returns to his original self,
    which is a HUGE BOAR! Yes, this one is defenseless so take out all your Secret
    Arts and deal as much damage as possble before it goes into his giant form
    again.
    
     Once he transforms, the fight continues just like it started. Foot first, then
    body and the boar.

                                       BOSS #5
                                       CHIMERA
    
     This Chimera can be easy if you know its attacks, some of them are easy to
    evade/counter and some are a pain in you-know-where. Let me start with a list
    of his attacks:
    
     o Blue Flames: he shoots several little blue flames that follow you around.
       This is a good attack because for starters it doesn't deal that much damage,
       but you can hit them back at the Chimera to deal some extra damage.
    
       He has a second Blue Flame attack which is rapid-fire.
    
     o Paws: he hits using its paws. That's it. Block the attack or roll over.
    
     o Ball: he curls into a ball and bounces once or twice across the screen. Make
       sure to get away from him once you see he starts curling, which takes him
       probably like a second or two. The good thing is that he bounces really
       high, which gives you enough time to run underneath it.
    
       After his first health bar is gone, his bounces will be faster and when you
       see him bounce and stay high up in the air, he'll dive into you and stun
       himself if the attack doesn't hit. Make sure to jump over it and attack him
       nonstop. NOTE that you can do 2 complete Sword Slash combos (not Long
       Sword). Once you do 2, quickly move away since he curls again and bounces
       away.
    
     o Dive: while he's airborne, he dives from one side of the screen almost
       halfway through it. Make sure to jump over him when you see him coming.
    
     o Tornado: during his final stage, he transforms into a black tornado and
       sucks everything (lol?). He also shoots some Blue Flames while he's at it.
       Hit the blue flames while moving away from him. Otherwise, don't get near
       him until the Tornado stops.

                                      BOSS DEMON
    
     Ok now what the hell...?! We get swallowed and we're fighting in this thing's
    stomach. This first part is really easy as you only have to hit the walls of
    the stomach to get pucked out. Yup. You can be damaged by the acid dripping
    inside. Other than that, this is the easiest thing ever.
    
     Now this is the actual fight, and its tough. He hits really hard, and with his
    punched only. In most of his attacks, he engulfs himself in fire and starts
    punching. Here's a small list of his attacks:
    
     o Million Punches: he engulfs himself and starts punching a bunch of times in
       front of him. Make sure to stay away from him or get behind him.
    
     o Grab: he grabs you and smashes you into the floor a couple times. This
       dealt around 800 damage to me.
    
     o Meteor Punch: he vanishes from the screen and his punch gets soo big it
       cover most of the screen. This attack can be deadly so do as the game tells
       you and hide behind the rocks.
    
     o Eat: he can grab you once more and eat you, allowing you to deal some easy
       damage to his insides. Note that for this to happen, he'll stare towards the
       screen and start drooling. This is your cue to get in front of him.
    
     Note that you can stand on his head and belly to deal some damage, but even so
    the Tiny Onis still throw their sickles at you so either evade them or block
    them. Each time the games says to hide behind the rocks, quickly do so but
    behind him and if you can as far away from him. As he finishes his attack, run
    and quickly jump on its head to deal a ton of damage. Rinse and repeat.

                                      BOSS  #7
                                       RAIJIN
    
     Raijin, the Goddess of Thunder. If you fight her the normal way, you're gonna
    get your ass whooped haha. She's really easy, even though there are a ton of
    things going on at the same time. For starters, her attacks, which all involve
    lightning (of course) and those medallions floating around her. Here's a small
    list:
    
     o Electric Orbs: she lets loose a ton of homming orbs, which can be countered
       by hitting them.
    
     o Multi-hit: she engulfs herself in thunder and hommes in at you. If she
       touches you, you'll be hit a lot of times. Note that each of the attacks
       doesn't deal a lot, but since there's a lot of hits, the overall damage is a
       lot. Run away from her when you see her do this.
    
     o Small thunder: she sits in the center of the screen and a small thunder
       appears from each side of her, spinning clockwise. You can simply jump
       around to dodge it. Not that hard.
    
     o Multi-thunder: several orbs appear on the bottom of the screen. This
       indicates that thunders are gonna fall there so look for an open space
       between them to evade this first phase of the attack. Afterwards, Raijin
       appears on top with a huge thunder, preparing to hit the ground with it.
       Jump out of the way to evade it.
    
     The key to make this battle easier is to use your Quick Draws. Use these
    mostly when attack #1 is in effect. Also having the Long Sword BLADE OF
    INFINITE FLIGHT is super helpful due to its Secret Art, DIVINE BLADE II, which
    lets you spin several times hitting her a lot and destroying the orbs and
    medallions too. You can spam this over and over and use those Whetstones you've
    been gathering to keep it at 100%.
    
     After some damage dealt, Raijin falls on her butt, with some fanservice of
    course, leaving her defenseless so take this opportunity to infict as much
    damage as possible. Also make sure to bring some good healing items, like those
    Peaches that restore 2000 HP. Use the Dashing Slashes to get out of harm's way
    too, this helps you evade some attacks and get away from her. Doing what I told
    you about using DIVINE BLADE II Secret Art, this can net you a Bronze Trophy.

                                     FINAL BOSS
                                     FUDO-MYOOU
    
     For starters, Fudo-Myoou isn't that hard. Even though its the final boss, it's
    not hard. Also notice that it doesn't have a health bar, but instead it has 6
    weak points you need to destroy in order to defeat this foe. Pretty much what
    they do is to shoot little lightning balls at you, either in a spiral shape or
    a larger ball that shoots smaller ones towards you. These are really slow and
    you can hit them to get rid of them. They like to teleport throughout the area
    so that's the annoying part.
    
     Note that the six weakpoints of Fudo-Myoou have a different color. Seitaka
    Doji represents the RED seals (the red looking Doji) while Kongara Doji
    represents the BLUE seals (the female looking Doji). What you need to do is
    attack them until they disappear. You'll be told that a seal has been broken,
    and where so go there by standing on the platforms and destroy the section of
    the body.
    
     As for their unique attacks, Seitaka (Red) tackles you while kongara (Blue)
    raises her staff and unleashes a large blue lightning ball. Get away from her
    as soon as you see it coming. Once you hear them chanting and they merge
    together, in which they look like 2 spirits (white and red). Quickly get away
    from them because they unleash three sets of 2 fireblasts in 2 different
    directions each time, which deals huge damage.
    
     Once only the head remains, the fight gets more serious. Besides the rocks
    falling down even faster, there are golden Lotus blossoms moving across the
    screen, in which shoot a continuous lightning beam from its point to the
    ground. Some of these move as well so make sure you jump over them. You can
    attack and destroy them, but your best bet is to just focus on the Dojis.

                                       KUROZARU
    
     Ok, Kurozaru is big, but not hard at all. For starters he has 3 attacks:
    
     o Pinwheel Shuriken: he tosses the shuriken forward and comes back like a
       boomerang. Note that if he tosses it on the lower part, it'll come back in
       the upper part and the other way around. Simply stay put/jump over it to
       evade it.
    
     o Punch: getting too close to him makes him bitch-slap you haha. Quickly dodge
       if you see him.
    
     o Stomp: he stomps the ground, creating a shockwave. Simply jump over it.
    
     This first part of the boss is really easy. His most annoying attack is the
    punch, because its really fast. When you get rid of the first health bar, he'll
    get angry and some sort of redish aura emanates from him. He'll then have two
    more attacks:
    
     o Multi stomp: he jumps several times, creating a shockwave each time he
       lands. You can evade this completely be quickly running to a side.
    
     o Giant shuriken: he makes his pinwheel shuriken huge and tosses it in front
       of him. This one doesn't come back, which is good. Quickly get behind him
       when you see the shuriken getting bigger.
    
     The best way to go on this battle is to simply do a quick combo, Dash Attack
    to the other side of him and rinse/repeat. Really not that hard of a boss.

                                   GIANT CENTIPEDES
    
     Ok so we're up against 3 Giant Centipedes and to be honest this has to be one
    of the easiest battles ever. You can rank so really high combos here to so go
    for it. They have 3 attacks:
    
     o Fireballs: they shoot blue fireballs at you, one for each part of their
       body, but these can be hit back so do so.
    
     o Pincer attack: they attack with their mouths. They try to bite you so just
       evade them.
    
     o Rampage: they stop for a little bit (this is your que) and tackle everything
       in front of them. This hurts quite a bit, but you can easily evade this
       attack. Note that if they miss, they come around and try to hit you again.
    
     These are their only attacks. Quite simple. Also note that the shorter they
    get, the faster. Its best to use a Long Sword due to its range. You can hit
    several parts of their bodies at once, and more than one Centipede at once too.

                                      TORAHIME
    
     Damn this battle is annoying. First of all there are some Undead Armors here
    as well as Torahime. She starts by running off to the right, leaving you to
    play with the Undead Armors. While you're doing so, she starts shooting arrows
    at you offscreen, which is a pain. Luckily, the bamboo traps you saw earlier
    serve as protection, at least when the arrows are coming low.
    
     As you kill the Undead Armors, you gotta go chase Torahime. While doing so,
    she's obviously shooting arrows at you, so gotta evade them and even jump over
    the bamboo traps. She only attacks with the arrows, but she can shoot many at a
    time, or make them rain. As she gets damaged, she charges towards the other
    side of the screen. Also note that the damn horse can also stomp creating
    little shockwaves, which is annoying.
    
     Make sure to always stay behind her, because staying in front will make your
    blade to break due to several arrows shot at once. This is basically it. You
    gotta be chasing her from one side of the area to the other. Make sure to stay
    close to her and behind her.

                                        SAYO
    
     Oh my God Sayo is really cute :). So cute that she's really dangerous.
    Seriously, she's really annoying and hard. She likes to run around the
    battleground. She has many attacks, which are the following:
    
     o Talismans: she tosses a couple of Talismans in the air. Hit these as soon as
       you can since they let lightning rain down on you.
    
     o Bombs: as she runs around, she slips and a bunch of bombs fall out of her
       (or she does it on purpose? o_O), exploding and damaging you. When you see
       the bombs fall out, quickly jump behind her.
    
     o Slash: when you're up close to her, she'll slash you/smack you. This does
       quite some damage for what it is, so be careful.
    
     o Crow lift: she summons some crows and these lift her up, hovering around the
       area. You have to hit her while airborne.
    
     o Fireworks: while airborne, she tosses a huge bomb which explodes like a
       firework. This one is really easy to evade. She can also drop a ton of small
       bombs so you too stay airborne until they explode.
    
     o Homming Crows: just before she's gonna get off her crows, there will be a
       ton of these that home in at you from outside the screen. Make sure to keep
       on hitting them so you can sustain the attack with little damage. This one
       is really hard to just avoid, so its better to just attack these.
    
     o Salamander: this attack is pretty similar to the homming crows, only that
       this time its fireballs and they hurt even more. They can break your blades
       easily so make sure to evade them
    
     As you can see, some of her attacks are pretty lethal since its really hard to
    evade them. Her bombs however can hit her too, which deal almost half a bar of
    health, which is amazingly good but pretty hard for it to happen.

                                       TSUCHIGUMO
    
     Dear goodness Tsuchigumo is easy, but the fight is annoying as hell.
    Tsuchigumo has only 2 attacks:
    
     o Web shot: he shoots a torrent of web all around that renders your movement.
       Quickly mash buttons to get out of it. Note that this attack deals 1 dmg per
       hit but hits you so many times and so quick that it's a lot.
    
     o Blue soul: it shoots 3 large blue fireballs and when they come in contact
       with the floor several little blue souls come flying upwards. Simply stay
       away from them.
    
     What makes this battle so annoying are the gazzillion of Spiders that are
    running around the area. These munch at you and can deal some damage. They also
    start bitting from afar and move towards you in a straight line. Ignore the
    Spiders as much as you can and focus on Tsuchigumo.
    
     Make note that the use of Long Swords is imperative to your quick success, and
    more if you have the Long Sword Sanctified Blade, which its Secret Art Radiant
    Moon I is pretty much a Quick Draw, letting you kill most if not all the
    Spiders on screen, but also their souls regenerate your Sword so you can use it
    a ton. Overall an easy fight but annoying.

                                   CHIGURUI BISHAMON
    
     Finally a challenging boss. After that spider thing I think we deserve this
    one. He is really big to begin with and has this huge armor on. In most of his
    attacks, you can see him absorbing souls and unleashing them in his attacks,
    which are the following:
    
     o Sword: souls start plowing into his sword and will slash in front of him,
       creating some sort of shockwave, so when you see him doing it, get out of
       the way.
    
     o Chest: souls start going into his chest area and creates some sort of
       whirlwind in front of his chest. Simply don't approach him.
    
     o Head: when souls start going inside his head/helm, he'll unleash some sort
       of wave on the bottom of the area. Stay airborne to evade it.
    
       Other than this, he can also make it rain some arrows down so be careful
       which attack he unleashes doing this.
    
     Ok, he's really not that hard. It just takes him so much time to prepare each
    attack that knowing what they do you can easily jump over them/roll out of the
    way. To be quite honest, Sayo was harder than this guy.

                                      DRAGON  GOD
    
     Ok, so finally the hardest boss yet and probably the hardest one of Kisuke's
    story. He starts off pretty easy like most bosses, which just a couple attacks:
    
     o Bite: lightning runs through his body and bites twice, once directly in
       front of him and one low near the ground. Simply go behind him when you see
       the lightning appear.
    
     o Fire Pillar: he shoots a fireball to the ground and a fire pillar comes out
       of the impact. Stay away from the explosion.
    
     o Explosive fireballs: he shoots a fireball onto the ground and it creates a
       fiery shockwave. Stay away from this.
    
     This first part is really easy and you'll breeze through it but when it gets
    serious, it REALLY gets serious. When the screen blackens, he'll dive into the
    ground and start the massacre. Yes, he attacks nonstop and you can't hurt him,
    even if you're close. The attacks he does are the following:
    
     o Fire stone: he shoots a stone that's on fire and this one shoots several
       tiny fireballs all around it.
    
     o Homming fireballs: he shoots a gazillion of tiny fireballs and heat-seek
       you, so evade them as best as you can.
    
     o Fire sweep: he shoots several fireballs that cover the lower part of the
       area and cross really fast. Jump over them.
    
     Like I said, this is all about dodging, evading and countering whatever you
    can. Make sure to stay healed through this part of the fight. Note that you can
    get your blades broken in this stage so make sure to bring some Whetstones to
    repair them. And if you think that's it, nope, THERE'S EVEN MORE ATTACKS. Here
    they are:
    
     o Dark cloud: not an attack per se but a move he does to do his next 2
       attacks. He goes into the background in some sort of dark cloud.
    
     o Blue orbs: he shoots some blue lightning orbs that home in at you. These are
       really slow and you can hit them to dissolve them so do so.
    
     o Lightning breath: while you evade or hit the blue orbs, he approaches you
       from the background, he fills his mouth with lightning and spits it out on
       the floor. Stay away from him.
    
     As you can see, he has a TON of attacks, but with the right blades he can be
    easier. Yes. Make sure to bring BIZENOSAFUNE KANEMITSU with Secret Art TEMPEST
    I and HAILSTORM with Secret Art DRAGONFLY II. At least these 2 swords, which
    should be the strongest. The first one allows you to attack the Dragon God
    several times at once while repelling all attacks. The second one I really
    recommend using it when you take the defensive stance. Since this Secret Art
    makes Kisuke jump high in the air and start spinning, the attacks won't hit you
    and the ones that are repel-able will bounce back.
    
     Like I said and repeat, make sure to bring a ton of healing items, both the
    ones that fill you and those that don't. I usually have the Roasted Squid
    equipped to heal 2500 HP in one go and if I need more, the Longevity Elixir
    restore 50HP so you can heal some more without having to wait for the bar to go
    down.

                                     FINAL BOSS
                             INUGAMI TSUNAYOSHI TOKUGAWA
    
     Ok, so miser Inugami Tsunayoshi Tokugawa. The last boss of Kisuke's story and
    its divided in 2 phases, so lets talk a little about the first one shall we? We
    start with Tokugawa, this old man has just 5 attacks, which are the following:
    
     o Summon: he summons samurai ghosts which are sitting and move forward,
       attacking you. You can attack them and make them disappear, but they move
       rather fast so I recommed just evading/jumping them.
    
     o Teleport: he teleports from one part of the room to another. Note that this
       move hurts you when it happens so when you see his hand fan glowing blue,
       dodge to avoid it.
    
     o Bitch-slap: talking about his hand fan, whenever it glows red (dark brown?),
       he'll do the same move as if he was going to teleport, but he only does it
       to attack you in the same way, so simply dodge and return to the massacre.
    
     o Clones: he creates 2 clones of himself, which are glowing red. Ignore these
       and simply focus all your attacks on the original one. Being fast and
       furious here is your best chance of countering this attack.
    
     o Lightning: when you attack him enough he'll fall down on the floor, but when
       this happens, he shoots a lightning bolt from the top. You can see where its
       going to land since you can see the light. Dodge and counterattack.
    
     As you can see, he's not hard at all. The ghosts are what makes this battle
    tough. Whenever he teleports, he immediately summons his ghosts and the amount
    he summons varies and the way the are summoned varies as well. I recommend
    running towards him as soon as he teleports and when the ghosts appear, quickly
    dodge roll behind them and attack. This way you can evade the ghosts
    completely.
    
     Whenever you deplete all the health bars, its time for the second phase, in
    which he transforms into a dog, a really big one but he's just a BIT harder
    than the old man. A little list of attacks is incoming:
    
     o Bite: he opens his jaw really wide and tries to bite everything he has in
       front. Quickly get behind him to avoid the attack.
    
     o HUGE bite: he disappears from the screen and suddenly you can see his jaw
       and teeth in the background. When this happens quickly get the hell out of
       the way and run to the other side of the area since he attacks almost all
       that side and hurt, really bad.
    
     o Poison Mist: he sometimes has poison mist underneath him. Don't get near it
       or you'll be poisoned.
    
     o Lightning: he has the same lightning attack as above so you know how to
       evade it.
    
     o Multi attack: whenever you see him glowing a darkish brown, several "arms"
       appear and attack you. The attack's range is his whole body so just don't be
       near him when you see him glow.
    
     o Vortex: not really an attack but you'll see some vortexes around the area.
       If you approach these some hands with weapons come out and attack you. Stay
       away from these things.
    
     As you can see, he has a lot of attacks but once you know how the attacks work
    and how to evade them, you'll do just fine. Having the sword Beguiling Blade
    with the Secret Art Meteor II deals tons of damage so make sure to use it :).

     Ok, the section dedicated to the Caves of Evil. What are these? These are
    caves that are protected by barriers of different colors. Pretty much like the
    barriers that block your path throughout the game, you need certain blade to
    break them. These are special challenges with either several waves of enemies,
    or fighting multiple bosses at the same time. Here's a list of all of them,
    their location, a recommended level and the reward for clearing them.
    
     Also the following is a list of the difficulty by colors and how you can
    locate them, enjoy :).
    
     o Red
     o Orange
     o Yellow
     o Green
     o Cyan
     o Blue
     o Purple
     o White

     :: Location: Musashi
     :: Recommended lv: 9
     :: Opponent: 100 Monks
     :: Reward: Chainmail accessory
    
     :: Strategy: To be quiet honest, to me this is one of the hardest Caves of
    Evil, yup even at level 74, I still die in this one haha. You've got 10 waves
    of 10 Monks. Fighting 4 is annoying as hell, fighting 10 at the same time 10
    times is even worse. What I've found more useful is using Long Swords and
    keeping them in the air while hitting them in a bunch. Or you could also spam
    your Secret Arts and use Whetstones over and over.

     :: Recommended lv: 9
     :: Opponent: 100 Ninjas
     :: Reward: Beelzebub Saucer accessory
    
     :: Strategy: This one is actually pretty easy since the normal Ninjas are
    really easy. The best thing you can do is to keep the ninjas in the air. How to
    do that? Well press up and [] and keep on attacking them in the air, and its
    better if you can attack more than 2 at a time. There are 10 waves of 10
    Ninjas, so you'll have a long fight.

     :: Opponent: Furball
     :: Reward: Cypress Rosary
    
     :: Strategy: Ok this one is not so bad. You've got to face off a Furball.
    These things like to poison you so make sure to bring an accessory equipped
    that protects you against it, like the Kappa Scale or the Dragon Necklace. It
    surrounds itself with electricity and bounces around once. Make sure to jump
    over it and when you see it hovering in one spot for a prolongued time, he'll
    either shoot lasers at you or start sipping Poison Mist through its body, which
    poisons you and be troublesome.

     :: Strategy: Oh my god another annoying as all hell Cave of Evil. This time,
    10 waves of 10 Tengus, Blue and Red ones so you'll see shit flying all over the
    screen haha. Make sure to bring Blades that have aerial Secret Arts and a ton
    of Whetstones and healing items because your blades will be breaking a lot.
    When each wave starts they all fly over to your position which is a good thing.
    
     Stand in the middle of the area and when you see many of them appear on top of
    you, unleash the beast, attack most of them and HOPEFULLY killing them. Don't
    be afraid to use your Whetstones if you need to.

    Haha, this one if full of toads so you know what to expect. Just remember that
    the big ones  don't stagger when you hit them, so focus on the small ones first
    and kill the big ones one by one.

     :: Strategy: Remember Momohime's first boss the Blue Monk? Well you've gotta
    deal with 3 this time... and all at once. Despite being 3 bosses, its still an
    easy fight since you can tell when each one of them is going to attack, you can
    just get the hell outta dodge.
    
     Once you defeat them, you get a swarm of those woobly thingies to restore some
    power of your blades then you fight a Furball. You've already defeated one of
    these in a previous Cave of Evil... so its basically the same thing.

     :: Reward: Boots of Sneaking accessory
    
     :: Strategy: This Cave of Evil resembles the one with 100 Tengus, because its
    not a hard one, but your blades will keep on breaking. The Korozarus love to
    stick together so you pretty much attack many of them at the same time. Its
    hard to read their movements so make sure to stay on your toes at all times.
    Also make sure to use your Whetstones as you'll be needing the blades haha.

     :: Reward: Preta Saucer accessory
    
     :: Strategy: Wow, there's a ton of Boars and Pheasants, but don't think that
    this is an easy one. The Boars are quite easy to evade since you can only jump,
    but the Pheasants dive in to you, all of them in the wave so you might be
    getting 3000-4000 damage in one go. Be extremely careful and as soon as the
    wave starts, if you have Quick Draw available, jump in the center of the area
    and use it to hurt really bad the Pheasants or kill them.
    
     As for the Boars, just stay behind them at all times.

     :: Opponent: ~100 High level Ninjas and Yukinojo
     :: Reward: Prayers of the Damned Blade
    
     :: Strategy: Dear God how I hate this Cave of Evil. You'll be fighting wave
    after wave after wave of high level ninjas, yeah the ones that appear in the
    last act of the characters and the ones that use Pinwheel Shurikens, chains,
    bombs and explode when you kill them. Just like the battle with the 100 Monks,
    stay in the air and try attacking them in groups and use Secret Arts non stop.
    
     The final wave has a Yukinojo however, which is as weak as it was before so
    don't worry to much about him and take care of the ninjas first.

     :: Reward: Blade of Absolute Truth
    
     :: Strategy: Ok, we dealt with 3 of these Giant Centipedes in the past almost
    at the start of kisuke's story and now they only give us 2? They're obviously
    stronger, but we are much more so its the same thing, only with one less
    Centipede to worry about.

     :: Name: Dragons of Heaven and Earth
     :: Location: Yamato
     :: Recommended lv: 71
     :: Opponent: 2 Dragon Gods
     :: Reward: Sword of Rejuvenation
    
     :: Strategy: Ha, you thought one Dragon God was hard? Imagine fighting two of
    them at the same time. Yeah, we've got to battle both of them, but the truth is
    they are easier than their story counterpart. They have less HP each and only
    the basic attacks, which are the double bite, crapload of fireballs and the
    lightning orbs.
    
     Even though I said they are easier, its still a hard fight, and more when you
    have both of them spit those gazillion fireballs that home in at you. Make sure
    to bring plenty of healing items and whetstones and blades that have aerial
    secret arts.

     :: Recommended lv: 78
     :: Opponent: Tiny Onis, Red/Blue Big Onis, Green Big Onis
     :: Reward: Sword of Corruption
    
     :: Strategy: Ok, this is a really good one! We start of with 10 Tiny Onis,
    which is really simple right? Then we get to fight a red and a blue Big Onis,
    which shouldn't be that hard either right? But then we get to fight 2 Green
    Onis, which function similar to the Red and Blue ones, only that its harder to
    stagger.
    
     For the final wave, we get 2 Green Onis, and a red and blue Oni, yeah 4 at the
    same time. Read their movements well and roll around a lot. Remember that using
    a Secret Art makes you invincible for the duration of the Secret Art so use
    them well :).

     :: Name: Battlefield of the Damned
     :: Location: Shinano
     :: Recommended lv: 85
     :: Opponent: Undead Armors, Gunners, Kite Ninjas, 3 Chigurui Bishamon
     :: Reward: Toyama Elixir accessory
    
     :: Strategy: Dear God, not hard but annoying as all hell. For starters we have
    many waves and all of them have Gunners, around 4 Kite Ninjas and the amount of
    Undead Armors increase in each wave. The annoying part is first the Gunners.
    Since there are so many, if the ones on screen hit you all your blade will
    break, so that's annoying as all hell.
    
     Start by focusing on the Gunners on screen and the Undead Armors. Also keep an
    eye open for the bombs and kunais since they can break your blades as well.
    
     Once you finish the waves, you get your experience counter and BOOM! You get
    another wave with 3 Chigurui Bishamons and more Undead Armors. Yes, Chigurui
    Bishamon is the boss in Kisuke's story and fighting 3 of them at the same time
    is hard, plus more Undead Armors... ugh! You can easily spam Secret Arts and
    using whetstones to finish this if you find it too difficult.
