No Spoilers!

The fight to earn this achievement occurs during normal story progression. It is part of the end game and is the fourth boss fight after the last opportunity to make a save. This is Nier's second encounter with a boss he fought earlier in the game. It this boss is defeated within one and a half minutes, the achievement will unlock.

The boss is initially protected by a barrier that must be deactivated with magic attacks. Dark Lance and Dark Blast will work well among others. Once the barrier is down any attack will work and the boss will quickly succumb. If Nier concludes the battle within one and a half minutes, the achievement will unlock.

As with similar timed fights, make sure you skip the cut scenes. Accordingly, you might want to fight the boss pair twice--once viewing the cut scenes and the second skipping them. Since reverting to the previous save involves replaying a long sequence with the tow additional boss fights between this one, it might be best to view the cut scenes while working towards the A ending and skipping them while working towards the B ending.

This fight recurs for each walkthrough--working towards the A, B, C, and D endings. Nier will be progressively stronger during each walkthrough until he reaches max strength. So, depending on how fast you have been leveling up--a personal choice--you may want to defer getting this achievement for a later playthrough when Nier is at a level where he can more quickly defeat this pair. In other words, there will be four opportunities to get this achievement through normal game play without reverting to a previous save file.
