Strategy 1 (Melee)

Anything and everything goes in this fight, including sniping them both before the battle begins. You will have to stay moving in this fight in order to have any chance. It is difficult to burn one down quickly without risking death, so be patient and take your time.

Because Tachibana is the more aggressive of the two, it will be easier to take him down first, and you should focus on doing so. Since he generally just keep coming at you, try to  position yourself away from Honda so that you can dodge Tachibana's attacks, get in a few hits and then repeat. You're going to do more dodging than attacking in this fight until Tachibana goes down so light armor is a must.


Strategy 2 (Living Weapon/"Hidden"OP)

1. Great spirit stones (Atleast 9)
2. A spirit guardian with regeneration A or A+.
(I´ve used kato but every guardian with enough damage should work)
So all you want do to, is to abuse your living weapon mode like a priest abuses his chorister.
You use 1 great spirit stone and hit as much as possible on both. (The first of them that lacks Ki (Tachibane) get´s the grapple hit.
If your living weapon bar is empty, you run like the honorless ***** you are, while refilling your LW bar with the great spirit stones.
refill,attack,grapple,run/refill x repeat= victory.

      -Use a Cannon or Matchlock to shoot both of them in the head at the start. (Shooting one won't trigger the other one to automatically attack.)
      -Use Sloth and Weakness Talisman on Tachibana. Use the High Stance Kusariagama to grapple him and get another strong attack on him after a succesful grapple.
      -Do this while circling around Honda and keeping an eye out for his rock throw and spear thrust. (He will be quite passive though.)
      -Once Tachibana is dead, grapple Honda and do a weak attack combo until he is dead. (Note: When he uses his spirit guardian you cannot grapple him.)
