Azai Nagamasa has wings and will make the most of them, considering that they cover a large part of his body and will deflect all incoming bullets and attacks. This means that when using them, your only option is to stay on guard and regain all the stamina you can manage. There is no reason to attack it, considering that you will simply be exposed and can take unnecessary damage. 

As for his attacks, they are almost all classic sword sweeps. However, you will have to be very careful with combos. When it starts throwing at you magical attacks in the form of bullets, we recommend that you start running around the arena and dodge its hitboxes as much as possible. Don't let too many bullets hit you or you will soon perish.

If you summon another player before entering the boss arena, it is very likely that you will completely crush Azai Nagamasa with a series of combos. You will often be able to hit him from behind if there are two of you. If your partner's HP drops too much, be sure to get the boss's attention so they can retreat for a moment to regain health. 

You will both have to try, however, to get to the Dark Realm, considering that you will spend some time there. In fact, Azai Nagamasa will make you stay in the Dark Realm longer than any other boss you have encountered up to that point. So be careful with stamina management - it's the key to beating this particular boss.
