How to Get the True Ending in Ritual of the Night

You can beat the game as soon as you get to Gebel in Livre Ex Machina, but you must retrieve the Zangetsuto sword from Zangetsu in the Oriental Sorcery Lab to get the true ending. The moon starts glowing red while fighting Gebel with the Zangetsuto equipped. Attack it with the Zangetsuto, then go to the Garden of Silence to find a portal leading to the path to the best ending.
