My thoughts on it in the end pretty much didn’t change from my impressions. Maybe worsened a bit, but in hindsight I realized that I was somewhat wrong to put that much expectations into it in the first place.
Currently level cap has been raised therefore I’m back to grindan. That said while I did slow down on reading VNs, I continued pushing through anyway. Simultaneously I’ve become fairly busy with other things causing my already small amounts of time to become even smaller. Blogging was more or less pushed out of my schedule for that reason but after finishing Joker I decided that I need to, or no, I’m obligated to write something about it.
