Is there a grinding aspect?

I purchased this game few weeks ago, Didn't really get too far. I'm hoping to start playing it again sometime soon and just wondering if theres some sort of grinding aspect.

So far I've just been going through the story with little concern with getting levels up, I've been using the same couple of people aswell so theres a bit of a level difference between my party.

Is it wise to train levels up in a sufficient area with plenty of monsters or will I be ok? From past experiences of RPG's I've always done a bit of grinding to get levels up to make things easier for me, would just like to know if its needed, if so in what capacity.

Thanks in advance.

I'm in the last parts of the first play-through, keeping all characters on equal levels, and I never had to grind so far. If you just fight the normal encounters instead of evading them, you'll be absolutely fine. Might be different on Encore, obviously.

In encore a little bit of grinding in the beginning will help with some of the early boss fights. If you are going for all the achievmeents you will be grinding for cash in a dungeon near the end to be able to buy an item that is required.

You don't even need to really grind except for one part and i think that is like chapter 4 cause of the boss who is a little OP but other then that you don't even need to level grind

The only part you may want to grind (besides during the encore) is Mysterious Unison. Some of the villains can be rather tough.

RE: Encore, I had trouble with the Rondo (the female pirate) so that would be the only time I actually spent an hour or two grinding levels out.

The female pirate is actually Dolce Regardless, the pirate ship in Encore is the only area I had to do any grinding in either of the playthroughs. Gaining a couple of levels made the Dolce boss fight so much easier.
