Fate Barbatos has never tasted real power. Born with the magical skill Gluttony, he constantly hungers in a way that can't be satiated, and has been shunned and looked down upon his entire life. One day, while working as a gatekeeper for a noble family and fighting a trespassing thief, he discovers Gluttony's true power: when he kills someone, he devours their skills and feeds his gnawing hunger at last. In that grisly realization, Fate is awakened to his true potential. How many lives will he feed on to satisfy this hunger, and is the world ready for the frightening warrior he'll become?

The main issues with this manga is that it has no clear direction. The author intervenes whenever necessary and assumes that the reader will just follow suit. It started really good with him getting his new power but the chapter after he got an OP weapon. From that point on he just became ridiculously OP. That aside he had no goals if not serving the fl. Problem is we only saw like 2 interactions of them so for the mc to be totally infatuated with her make absolutely no sense. He now wants to devote his life protecting her like what? Before meeting her didn't he have any goals he wanted to accomplish? As if it wasn't enough the author shove into our throat the whole deadly sins plot. All of that mc is just following whatever comes in front of him without a clear goal. This is not how you write adventuring stories. Mindless killing for the sake of it. And all of the stats are broken, you see monsters with 100 millions stats point but it doesn't seem like that country has so much manpower, it should have been destroyed already. Coming back to the sins stuff. Advice for authors, don't write stories where you have some kind of big conspiracy with someone controlling everything from the side. It removes any sense of importance and lower the value of it all. Now someone new the mc had power and observed him and basically chose his fate, that means that he doesn't control anything in the story. And that makes your mc weak. rant over.
In 2 words: Quite enjoyable One of your usual manga where the bullied mc (name: Fate) discovers he has the power to devour his opponent's skill and become OP. Since he has someone he wants to protect, he can now become OP by mercilessly killing monsters for her sake, Perfect! I'm exaggerating a little xd, I decided for once to support the mc in his romance, which may not be exceptional, but good enough and cheering for a character for his love to succeed is quite fun. It's true that a lot of things don't make any sense whatsoever, the characters you think are strong aren't, the OP monsters that seemingly don't do anything else aside from being xp for our mc, the plot that isn't clear: I kinda liked that the character could accomplish his revenge fast, but it's not a revenge manga, so stopping the revenge plot and adding it again as the main focus can become annoying in the future. I say that but it also adds a new obstacle to our OP mc, so it's not that bad. Some other things are interesting, 1. Fate isn't op everytime and makes some choices (which doens't change much at the end of the day but can surprise you, in a good way) 2. the drawing is nice 3. the villains are unimportant The manga doens't start original and doens't become original, it's simply a manga with something more than others.
