      how to recognize the demon of hatred as the sculptor though? I've played the game until NG+7 and never got that dialogue where Sekiro said yes.

        If you eavesdrop on the Sculptor and find out that he will become the demon, she will tell you more. Also she will tell you more stuff after you kill the demon. And lastly, she hints at what will happen at the end if you choose the normal ending. Sekiro is going to become consumed by the flames of hatred that he banished from the Sculptor's body eventually. He will likely become a demon too.

          I guess she tries to let you know about the optional boss battle later in the game, because of the demon thing shes is talking about
