      How do I use the rb+lb attack from Ashina arts (Ichimonji) if I also unlocked the rb+lb attack from shinobi arts (whirlwind slash)?

          So it looks like this is missable? I thought I had talkedto Tengu but apparently hadn't, and went back after getting to the Divine Child and he's not there anymore*****.

            I need help getting the Esoteric text at end game. Missed this questline and I can't seem to find the text not even at dilapidated temple.
