Overall, I gave this anime an 8/10.

Contrary to many of the reviews giving a low rank to Last Period, I personally think quite a bit of thought went into the plot and gimmicks throughout the show. It genuinely did surprise me, because it is not the kind of humour I usually find in anime. It's been compared favourably to Konosuba, but I think the humour is entirely different. Konosuba's humour is character-driven. Here, the humour arises from puns and by characters breaking the 4th wall. For example, at one point they were referencing the Iphone v Android debate.

I cannot possibly bring myself to rate this at higher than 4/10 after thinking through all the good and bad parts of this show. I feel like the overall rating of this show should be around a point lower than it is now, it doesn't deserve even a 6.61/10 score.

This thing is just so damn insipid. It's seemingly supposed to make fun of, or otherwise show, jrpg mechanics and I do recognize all the jokes where it tries to be funny since I've played my fair share of games, I just don't find them to be that amusing. There were a few funny parts here ...
