    I hope Hootle smites you out of this world for suggesting I leave a quest unfinished.
    Anyway, have you gotten to this point in the game? Can you port back once you

    Once you finish the game you get a save right before the final boss and you're free to fast travel anywhere you want. There's a bunch of post-game content too. You'll lose the ability to return for a little bit but you get it back before the final dungeon

    I haven't played a Tales game in forever, so decided to give this one a go.

    Japness is too off the charts for me, I just can't. I can take a moderate level of japness like Ys 8 (the soundtrack helps), but this is just too much. I feel like I need to be 25 years younger to enjoy something like this.

    Law was fairly annoying at the start, but he's really grown on me as a decent companion. Nice and grounded in dialogue and banter. That's good character development.

    Lenegis is an awesome chapter. Honestly, this just gets better and better.

    Pasting this comment I made elsewhere about the best way to enjoy Tales of Arise:

    It's mind-blowing how beautiful this game looks once you disable the awful Sharpening Filter that the devs put in, it looks like a beautiful work of art once you disable it. With the Filter disabled this is honestly one of the most stunning games I've ever laid eyes upon, and entering Trisalda Highway was a joy. Please, disable the Sharpening Filter as soon as possible, enjoy this game without noise, shimmering or aliasing. It's fucking beautiful.

    I put eyeglasses on Rin, and cat ears on Shionne.

    Oh, and a Hootle on top of Dohalim's head.

    Done. Really fun lategame, and I'm happy about the cheesy ending, which is something that emo Berseria shied away from.
    Despite the shortcomings, I ended up loving Arise, as it often happens with JRPGs.

    Thoughts a few weeks after completing it. There was a lot I liked about it, but I think at the end of the day, it went on a little too long. I really liked the characters, but the amount of skits in the last portion of the game broke the pacing too much. The combat system was really pretty fun but the enemy variety was sadly a little lacking, and some of the bigger enemies weren't very fun to fight because they were just too tanky. The big fat ones with the big hammers were the worst offenders and the last area had a ton of them lol. Too much, man. But overall, I really enjoyed the happy ending and it was definitely something I'll remember.

    EDIT:
    Also, the skits a lot of times left something to be desired. In many cases, they just rehashed what just happened seconds ago in the big cutscene. It was like the writers wanted to make sure you were following the story. Many times they didn't add any further characterization, they just again summarized what just happened.

    I didn't really have a problem with the game's pacing or length.

    Also, I assume everyone completed the series of lategame fights for the researchers? Those were pretty fun. :D

    Remove this "trying to be deep" shit from the thread title, the game has a very conventional, even cheesy storyline and at no point really tries to be deep. Which is in direct, stark contrast to Berseria.
