By performing a Brush Adventure, it's possible to Bloom the cursed patch in Kusa Village from which the Canine Warrior Shin emerges. This can be used to warp directly to Shin after feeding Chi, saving about 10s compared with running around through Susano's cutscene trigger. This is only useful in routes which also perform Sasa Sanctuary Early, as otherwise the time spent in the brush would simply stall the day-night timer. This would delay nightfall, which is required to fight the Cutters and access Sasa otherwise.
This trick was first theorized by Auride on 12 Sep 2020, then demonstrated on 13 Sep 2020 in this video: https://youtu.be/rm6L7BsprwU.
