First review round: 7.4 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Rejected.

The review process was fairly fast, but still the editor apologized for "delay in review" (so usually the review process may be even faster). The chief editor saied he/she could not obtain the second review, so he/she worked as the second referee. The review was strict but reasonable and helpful.
