To get a lot of souls easy kill any type of demon when those floating blue skulls r in the area. Let the skulls absorb the souls, then kill it quickly or it will disappear. If there are multiple skulls in the area let the other skulls absorb the souls from the dead one. Walla, more souls have appeared. (remember to kill them quickly).

Okay, here is what you've got to do. When you are on the tower keep at the end of the game, before you fight Nobunaga, get the purple wedge from a chest near the stairs. take the wedge to the purple light. go through the purple phantom world's gauntlet. at the end there will be a sword plunged into the ground ; go retrieve it. It is the Rekko-kan, the ultimate weapon. it whoops butt!!!
WAIT!! before you leave, check the red mark on the ground. it will ask if you want to plunge the sword into the ground. do it. there will be a chest with fashionable goods. what this does is adds a minigame in special features after you beat the game. this gauntlet is a great way to gain souls to enhance your weapons and armor.
