To add Shazels drops and Nereid to your Monster Collection, simply kill Shazel, get up to Nereid possessing Shazel use a lens on her, die and press retry. You'll be sent to the back to the start of the castle. You will haveh the data, an extra death and no hourglasses (the break when you face Nereid i guess). I'd suggest not getting the survivor title until the end of the game or none of the hourglasses unless your going to use them.
However i did both those things, so if you want you can buy or hack back the hourglasses, which you can find the code fairly easily. The code for changing your death counter is 8013525A 00XX. XX signifying the number of deaths/re-tries.
