I'm in front of the door that I was talking about (The one in the castle). I find ridiculous that i've been stuck for several playtime hours just walking around the castle after exploring it, and i'm unable to see what i'm doing wrong.
I'm starting to hate the demon fighters too, although i've ended improving INT a lot thanks to them, lol.
Okay, so I played around with your save file a bit and was able to find out what you were missing. The red guy / thief is looking for a way into the Tower, yet he cannot find a way to pass by the invincible soldiers that can kill you in two hits flat. So he suggests that you try to find a way to "freeze" them, which you can do if you like by hitting the switches with good timing and getting them to walk into the frozen ice mist. I saw where you had actually made it past them before on the map (as you said by jumping over them and making sure not to take too long to pivot or you get hit) but on the other side of all of that is a means of entering into back passageway which is still part of Castle Wall C, yet it comes out behind the door that the thief is talking about that you can now open via a switch that is right next to it. As soon as you open it, you can talk to the red thief again and he'll make some comments about how you are "Not as dumb as you look" for solving the issue, and that now he can proceed with looting the Tower. Further in should be a green door and a wall plate that states "Tower". If you've unlocked the door for the thief, he will have unlocked the Tower for you now.
Something also you may want to go back and check if you are going for 100% map. I noticed that you didn't fall down the pitfall that was in one of the Castle areas that has a spiraling hall way that closes into a center room with a chest that you had already looted. As you try to leave that chest and make your way back you have to outrun a pitfall trap which you did, however if you do fall down it takes you to a bonus area that has a fairly sizable map. No enemies down there but TONS of secret passages ways, flying health and poison pots, an infinite warp puzzle room (which if you don't want to solve it is warp # 11 if you are counting from the North from left to right. There's a merchant down there as well.
Also the area you started out with in your save is another door and a switch right next to it, but I couldn't remember how to open it. I believe there is something that you find later that allows you to open that door. Perhaps it opens from inside the Tower. In any case you should be able to venture forward now. : )
By the way, I noticed you haven't registered here yet Dontangana. If you like Falcom games you ought to consider joining the community. It's not as active as it used to be, but we do have many members who frequent all the time. Also this community has the all the hardcore Brandish fans anyhow. : )
I mean check this guys' collection. What a freak right?
And can you believe that guy still can't get enough Brandish?

Jesus Christ, I cant believe I didn't see that door!
Thank you so much, I couldn't figure what I was doing wrong. You have to pass from Castle Wall C through the door the invincible guys are protecting, you get to another Castle Wall area, and then just look for the door on the lower-right part and that was all. My fail was that the only square of that part that wasn't covered was the actual door and I though it was going to be a wall.
I havent facepalmed so hard in years. The guy wearing red was wrong; I am as stupid as I look and even more.
I also explored the Under Castle area, but I have one question, how do I reach that hidden room inside the the Chests Room? It's obviously a jumping puzzle, but I can't figure where I have to jump to get to the "other squares where you can stand". Not even the guy who did the FAQ knew. I liked the flying items, though, it was kind of funny, even if one of those things ended up in a place I can't reach, and the ammount of sledgehammers I broke is alarming, thank goodness there is this Cthulhu Merchant here.
About that collection, my god that's a lot of beautiful art. I always loved the artwork they put in them.
At the very least it puts the Blockbuster kind of covers that most games have nowadays to shame.
Ah you mean getting to that magic wall that is being blocked by the one chest in the treasure room.
Nope, I haven't figured that out. Originally I thought there might be a breakable/magic wall on the actual teleporter tile that you arrive on since there is a small white space there that if you were to break through it would perfectly align you to jump over the chests in the pattern that would allow you to reach that hidden wall, but after checking that did not seem to be the solution. I didn't try it yet since I didn't have time and have to run to work soon, but you might try placing each of your items one by one and storing them in the chests. That "might" be a solution, but it's still a stretch. Probably something else we're missing.
Here's my map for that area from my playthough last night.
