How much side stuff is there?

Like optional dungeons, side stories, optional towns, secret areas, etc.

How much is there?

Enough to keep you going past the 100 hour mark, which should tell you something since the main plot is rather short.

Goodbye Chewy. You were the best friend I could ask for. Rest in peace, buddy.

Is that outside of New Game+ and Future?

I just passed the desert for the first time, am I missing a lot of side stuff already?

well as far as I know... the only missable side things are:

most skits (just be sure to do each discovery skit, and check each save point you come across, and anything suspicious)

1 inn request (think this is only missable in the sense that you can't do it after you enter the last dungeon... or maybe earlier, so do early

anything in the childhood part (includes a few sidequests as well, you can't exactly do this again without starting a new game+)

and uh... yeah there's more but I'm forgetting i'm sure

Well I didn't mean missable stuff. I meant more like... is there already a lot of side stuff I can do? Optional areas? Or does the bulk of that come later?

Bulk of it comes right before the final dungeon, but you can be doing inn requests right now.

Yeah I'm doing Inn Requests now... seems rather lame. Just click on an option if you have the items, seems meh.

Was hoping for extra areas to explore etc. That comes near the final dungeon?

Yes, a lot of event stuff becomes available once you get to the Final Dungeon. The actual amount of "extra areas" are fairly slim, but there is definitely enough to keep you occupied.

If the number of extra areas is slim, what extras are exactly enough for 100+ hours of gameplay?

new events open in the towns, new requests, star events, scenes, sidequests, etc.
