Skip ahead to 2:00 to bypass the dialog if you want.
The 8th fight is against a Demon Fox named Ninetails (Naruto anyone?). This strategy is based on using Amaterasu's powered up Infinity Judge as a main weapon and powered up Snarling Beast as the secondary (and the God skill that increases damage when two reflectors are equipped). As with my other boss videos, my strategy isn't absolute and I wouldn't mind other effective strategies or advice posted as comments.

The most difficult battle I've dealt with so far, and rightly so. You won't be able to hurt ninetails right away so for now just keep dodging his attacks, sometimes he'll use his tails to shoot acid around you or create spikes that home in on you. My reflexes were crappy in this fight and I had a really hard time dodging the forward charge attack Ninetails does throughout the battle. Normally you can just double jump over it if you're quick enough. Anyways for the other attacks I mentioned above, you can just simply run around and dodge them. Once in a while Ninetails will raise up a sword at which time you should use your brush and zap it with your Thunderbolt stroke (be quick because Ninetails has a brush too and will try to cancel your strokes). This will cause Ninetails to burst into smaller individual beings that represents one of it's tails. Kill them as fast as you can (use exorcism slips if you don't want to be mobbed) and Ninetails will come back together again (notice it loses tails when one of those lesser beings is killed) in which you should repeat the whole sword zapping process over again until finally only one tail is left. Ninetails will turn orange and can now be injured by your attacks. It will charge at you much faster than before so do your best to dodge it. After the charge attack, counter it with your Mist Veil brush stroke and get a combo and a Power Slash in before it wears off. Keep on doing that until finally Ninetails takes a dirt nap.
