First off, a Hokuto Shinken kill counts as a kill performed with an attack that makes the enemy turn red, bubble up, and explode. Ken and Raoh both have abilities that trigger this effect, but the majority of your kills for this achievement will come from characters who have the Hokuto Wisdom effect. Every character has the ability to unlock this, and the beauty of it is that it causes EVERY attack which kills an enemy to trigger the Hokuto Shinken effect (even if it's a little dinky light poke). This makes this achievement go a LOT faster.

The way I earned this achievement is as follows:
1) Play through Mamiya's story until you unlock dream mode.
2) While you're playing, make sure you purchase and equip the Hokuto Wisdom upgrade, which is located two upgrades above her starting point. Buying any attack upgrades will help, as well as the upgrade that increases the damage to projectile attacks (and Mamiya IS projectile attacks).
3) Play the first level of her dream mode over and over until you get it. The basic idea is to charge up her RB crossbow blast and fire into groups of enemies, especially at the points where the enemies spawn at bases. The place where Heart spawns for the second time works beautifully, as you can just stand atop the hill (by the fence) and annihilate enemies as they come up the hill. I personally gained 700-1000 kills in the 30 minutes that it took me to finish the level each time.

Also, this is the method at which I'll likely be gaining the achievement for the Nanto and Ujoken kills, just as soon as I find out where they are for Mamiya, or if someone has the Wisdom effects at a closer location.
