    Did you go to Hirata? Seems like you missed Hirata. That should be your next location.

    >Shikibu Toshikatsu Yamauchi is the most insufferable cocksucker of a boss of all time
    I thought he was loads of fun, and I'm a shitter who didn't fight him "the right way".
    By that point I was having more fun with these mini-bosses over the main bosses.

    The key to most of these fights is to keep being aggressive.

    >Jinsuke Saze is rough since the game keeps dropping inputs on my deflections and I haven't had to rely on them until this point
    I don't even remember how I beat him, but I remember that he's like a puzzle gimmick boss. I got rekt until I "got it", He has a very simple pattern you're meant to figure out. He's essentially the last early tutorial boss there to force you to learn parrying before the first real boss.

      I went to Hirata early on and got to Lady Butterfly before I started doing everything after the Chained Ogre.
      I'd been dreading Lady Butterfly due to how much the illusions and snap seed were hyped up. That's also why I was trying the other stuff before Senpou Temple since for that a Buddha poster came to life to tell me shit would be turbulent.

        Don't miss Father Owl, and when you get to the end, backtrack to the first area by foot (you're closed off from teleporting), to not miss-out on one of the best bosses in the game.

            It's odd that they're hostile to you in the first place, especially in the late game when you fuck up ministry cunts in front of them to save them, and then they attack you anyway

              most of the ashina soldiers don't actually attack you. the lion share are just sitting around depressed, and you can even deathblow/fight half of them. some even ask you to help. it's just the ones fighting in the streets that didn't get the memo.

            Are the Hirata part of Ashina? I don't think so. Genichiro just kidnaps Kuro. Isshin is just a bro who doesn't like what his grandson is up to and likes you.

                If you don't see it that's not my problem, but your quote doesn't negate him being an honorfag. His voice is dripping with disappointment when he talks about Genichiro and the black blade or Ashina being heretical (ie using immortality shit.)

                He respects only power and sees that Genichiro is weak so Ashina must fall because there's no worthy successor like himself. If he was an honorfag he would be spitting on Sekiro who's a shinobi with their entire modus operandi being completely dishonorable.

                You're mistaking honor for chivalry anon. Isshin's honor is in his arm, not a codex. Genichiro and Ashina not being able to hold the lands Isshin retook without turning to shit like black blades and centipedes shows they aren't worth keeping what he grasped.

                he was disappointed because Genichiro was doing something that corrupted his very mind and soul, alongside all the other suffering caused by that form of immortality.

                Yeah that's what I'm getting at anon. Also not sure if he "mastered" the lightning or if he's just a natural at his peak copying someone close to him. No one talks about him showing Tomoe's abilities before, but Emma talks about Genichiro training them.

    Intended progression route is for you to clear the castle (past blue samurai, boss fight at the top of the tower), and clear hirata estate at about the same time, then you have the choice of 3 or 4 paths.
    Fyi I think you've missed one, accessed from the first shrine inside the castle, drop down the center atrium and fight a miniboss (who you've fought before...) then grab a prosthetic and open the door at the rear. Memory might be off though, you might have found this route already
    Anyway clear hirata then castle, or castle then hirata, then pick a path after that (after clearing castle you will be given a direction hint for the next route if you want)
    Also just confirming, you have met a mysterious samurai, killed some rats and unlocked a skill tree, right?
