This is obtained in the second fight vs Devola and Popola. I got it on my first playthrough without even really trying for it, so it's not a difficult one. I found the spear special attack charge "Y" combined with evade-rolling into attack swings in chains to cut thru waves of energy balls and close in to be a fairly solid method. Do not stand next to devola and wind up an attack after closing on her as she will use Dark Hand and smack the crud out of you if you aren't moving and near her. If you feel like it you can charge up a volley of dark lances and fire them straight through the volley of enegy balls as well for solid damage.

**Update (20 Oct 11) from user soliunasm -"Just a note, you HAVE to skip the next three or so cutscenes. If you don't it won't give it to you, and they last about 7ish minutes in total."

Personally I wouldn't do this on your first time through, as these scenes are really important to the story and quite touching, but it is an important thing to clarify. Thanks to all the people who continue to contribute to all my Nier solutions. :)
