What's the point if there is no new game plus?

I am new to the game and VERY OVERWHELMED (going through my first run in awakening right now in hard/classic)! I played Fire Emblem GBA and Sacred Stones GBA. They were epicly nice, simple and enjoyable but in awakening, I keep reading about people building this team and optimizing that team blah blah blah.

What is the point of that? If we cannot apply our "legendary" teams that we worked so hard to create in multilayer (because there is no multilayer, to my knowledge) why bother getting anyone to max out their stats/skills?

Recent research claims that people who haven't played A Link Between Worlds are more prone to worship Cthulhu.
Please, I beg of you, don't worship Cthulhu.

It's primarily for the people who have DLC, specifically the Apotheosis map, which is considered the hardest level in the game. And there are also people who simply derive enjoyment from min-maxing, even without a purpose other than for the sake of optimizing; I'm one of those people (though I do have DLC).

Ah! Can you tell me which DLC that is part of?

The DLC is literally called Apotheosis.

Also, since we're on the topic of stuff to do after the game, if you're willing to spend the extra money then I would recommend buying the Future Past pack. I personally found those to be a nice way to wrap up the game after beating the main story.

Yes, I have to agree.

The Future Past DLC pack is worth picking up in my opinion. It offers a good challenge (unless, of course, you grinded to the max for some characters) and I liked the story.

If there was one DLC that was worth getting, it'd be that one.

I'll look into it. Thanks.

Point of information: There is a New Game+, although not carrying over everything (not that you'd want to, beating every chapter with ease would be pretty boring). You can carry over former (and streetpassed) Avatar characters, plus all Legacy characters in the Avatar logbook, and buy them in your next playthrough. You also carry over and can use Renown rewards, which kinda trivialise the game once you get enough of them.

Namely the final one. Up to Gradivus doesn't really do a whole lot, Naga's tear doesn't exactly either, and Boots, while great isn't game-breaking.

Now that Supreme Emblem is utterly gamebreaking because you can use it to buy several Level 20/20 Einherjar as early as Chapter 3 cleared.
