I've hit the credits on Strikers, I'm into the post-game. Not sure if there's a "true ending" or anything (and I'm not asking if there is, I'll keeping poking around and see if I feel compelled to stick around)
Overall, I really liked this game. Some great character moments, gameplay that really grew on me (even if I wish there were more gimmick boss fights and fewer "what if a billion HP?" boss fights), an overall thematic thrust that complimented P5 without retreading it. Good shit! It felt like a solid second season of a TV show I was already a fan of.
That said, it's possible to summarize the entire game with one of my favorite Dia Lacina trollish-but-not-NECESSARILY-trolling meme images:

Strikers is definitely a Persona game, complete with taking 100+ hours to clear all the side missions, and I just hit the postgame!
I think that's all I have though, unless there's more stuff after the immediate post-game stuff, and I'd completely cleared out the requests the moment they became available, including some stuff that was probably better saved for the endgame, like the Dire Shadow achievement.
Like a Persona game, the game kind of breaks after you get some high-tier Persona and can pretty much completely lockdown everything as long as you have its weakness.
I also like that despiteNone of the romances being canon, which obviously they were never going to do, they give you precisely ONE opportunity for alone time, and they were just enough to throw in a single 'hey so this is a date. yeah?' line in there just to help out a bit.
I also feel a bit bad that Royal isn't canon, which yeah that's probably obvious as well, but Yoshizawa was a good character, but I definitely detected hints of her in Sophia, who is also very good

Solidly MEH on gacha of existing IP lately. They've just been poorly managed cash grabs for the most part.
