like, i am not

the battle system is fine, i guess, just wish it was a little faster than slow as f***

the, this might be the one game i switch to japanese voices because i f***ing hate everyones voice.

i'm not very far, so i don't have much else to say yet.

Yeah, switch to Japanese. The English voice acting is atrocious. Most of it is fine, but some of the main characters are utterly dreadful, which is where you really don't want back VA.
Especially Rex and Tora. Ugh....
you can speed up the battle system somewhat with skill choices for the drivers. Prioritize ones that let you start a battle with the Art assigned to X/Y/B buttons immediately available (and slot arts w/ the longest charge up to said spots until you get all 3), and also the skill that lets you immediately use another Art after canceling an Art (or whatever the description is...).
Learning the blade combo elemental routes somewhat also helps, since the final hit of a full combo does a lot of damage.

That does get better with time. The first game's battle system also had problems with starting slow, thanks to taking a while to unlock enough Arts to actually have something to do, but 2's worse for that due to how many extra layers the system has. Once you start weaving different sorts of combos together, it does get quite a bit faster and more interesting.

I made a point of saving screenshots of the various combo routes on the Switch itself to reference as needed. That helped a lot.
This is my signature. It exists to keep people from skipping the last line of my posts.

Also, if you do have the DLC, the custom difficulty settings are a godsend

You can use them to speed things up by making enemy hp set to the minimal level while otherwise maintaining your preferred level of difficulty, for example. I actually ended up using it to set enemy hp higher in a lot of cases, so I could keep them alive long enough to farm w/ Smash attacks or get a ton of orbs on them for a huge overkill bonus. But it's handy for either purpose.

the switch lite really is not comfortable to hold.

it's too thin, this is the same issue i had with the ds and the vita, i need a grip for them that makes them thicker

dammit

a fight that is presented as unwinnable "this is the STRONGEST PERSON IN THE WORLD ur gonna LOSE for SURE"

is, in fact, winnable and is what you have to do

What fight is this again?

One problem the main story has, I think, is the over abundance of fights where you win the battle but then lose in the cutscene.

Have fun plowing Jin now. There’s a fight later on where he’s gonna wreck your s*** 5 different ways if you don’t pay attention to his abilities and cooldowns.

I’m not recalling any other ice b**** in this game then. What was the name of the boss?
