Yeah, I'm no stranger to these tropes as someone who's watched a lot of anime. It was still quite disappointing given the themes they were trying to tackle. Like, they wanted us to take them seriously, but also weren't really trying, if that makes sense. I'm always hopeful for progress. I hope the localisation will at least be better going forward, even if Atlus Japan doesn't change. It seems like they've learned some lessons with Persona 5 R.
