|Shrine of Amana - Chest|
The Manslayer can be found after beating the Demon of Song in the Shrine of Amana. After defeating the demon there will be a hidden path submerged in water next to a ruined shrine. This walkway will lead to a tower and a bonfire. Up the tower there is a door that may only be opened while the character is hollow. Open the door and kill the enemies. At the end of the walk way there will be a Milfanito and a large alter of fire. Head down the stairs behind the Milfanito. Upon exiting the small tower, the character will come to a small set of stairs that lead to water. The chest containing the Manslayer will be directly left of the staircase when exiting the tower.
