An improving point

The 1st step succeeded in improved of 65 frames by change weapon into cross from holy water, adjusting an enemy's operation attack, and The headhunter's action pattern was adjusted, and a back dash was not performed, but it defeated in the optimal position. 17 frames is improved when the 2nd step uses cross abundantly. An enemy action pattern and a dead position are adjusted also here. The 3rd step is improved by 11 frames by reducing grandcross once and attacking by another means.
