  1. Do you eventually get requests to defeat the Strong Shadows, or do you just get a mission reauest for the reaper after randomly defeating them all? I defeated 2 so far, I in Kyoto and the other in Shibuya, but I never got a mission promt or request other than a warning of its immense power when I came close to it. Will these same enemies reappear, or does the game keep record of what I already defeated?

    • Ok so this is my first run I didint defeat bugbear im on the second jail how the f do you defeat this thing its so strong it kills anyone in one hit i cant even get it close to a quarter of hp is there a strategy i can use? Or something?
