Tips for beating Umi-bozu
The first thing you will need to do is light all three bonfires shown in this video.
This way you will get rid of the boss's minions and can only deal with him. The advice is to use the double katana in the low position, always applying the fire element to which this boss is very vulnerable (for the same reason, use amulets and fire magic in abundance).
The reason why you should use the double katana in the low position is because it inflicts more hits per second (especially applying fire damage to each hit). The more hits you deal per second, the more fire damage you deal to the boss.
