[Dark Rose Valkyrie] I finished my first run, managed to beat it withing lowering the difficulty past hard (also got Coo's true end). Now I have a lot of prep I need to do for my "very hard" run. I just made a discovery I don't think I've seen mentioned anywhere either (there's really not a lot of info around about this game)... Obviously a portion of your PP gets transferred to NG+ (40% for a hard run?), but what I haven't seen mentioned is that any unused BP gets converted & added to the pool as well. Meaning if I do some level grinding but don't spend any of my points afterwords, I can transfer a portion of all that as well (making my next run that much easier).
I've already been kinda lazy upgrading my lesser used characters, so that's an extra 800 or so points right there. I'm pretty sure the PP system in Cross Edge worked the same way, so I'm glad I bothered checking it before I spent it all. 😅 Based on my hard run, very hard is probably going to suck either way, so I have to stockpile as much as possible before jumping into that...

@Yuna4353 The story is pretty good, I enjoyed that. Gameplay though can be a little tedious at times compared to the other CH games out there...
There's basically 3 attack stats in the game (melee, range, & special), & a lot of the skills are a hybrid mixture of 2, so it can be a little confusing at times deciding on what stat you wanna focus on. Also if you're under-leveled in your accuracy stat even slightly, it seems like 70% of your attacks start missing all the time.
The range of the AoE skills kinda suck too, there's barely any difference between a B rank skill & SS (you're lucky if you can even hit 3 enemies at a time with them). Also if a enemy decides to move & attack before it goes off, it completely screws up your targeting.
The boss fights are very cheap as well, in most cases I just had to charge my TP gauge to max in a normal battle beforehand so I could nuke the bosses on the first turn with specials. This is especially true in the end game, they love throwing 1-hit KO moves at you with tons of status ailments (sometimes before you even get a turn). 🤕
I could really only recommend it if you've played other CH games & are a fan of them. Gameplay is definitely on the lower end of the others, but I do think the story is worth it.
