When death tapped Renya Kunugi on the shoulder, he smiled and went willingly. After enjoying a nice, long life of 94 years, he was looking forward to shutting his eyes for the last time. He was, therefore, understandably upset when he woke up again in an empty space, devoid of memories, with a young girl in a tunic rambling on and on about how she's God. So, he did what any reasonable person would have done under those circumstances: he sent the girl flying with a kick to the face. It turned out that the girl was indeed God, and she was in a pinch. She urgently needed someone to do some interdimensional Resource smuggling, and Renya fit the bill. His mission: cross the boundary into another world, then chill for a few decades. God would handle the rest. The next thing he knew, he was standing in a foreign land, younger, stronger, and more clueless than ever. Will he survive this world? And more importantly, will the world survive him?

Deceptive garbage. No idea if the novel is the same, but at least I now know that it isn't worth a read (not that I was going to read it, but maybe I would one day, so now I know to save my time instead). Basically, this story is another flag example of Japanese having good story idea and then making a crappy mess out of it, something very common with manga, anime, and novels. I won't go into much detail, but basically we get a cliche setting (isekai, hero, yadayada) with some slight subversion of some tropes, at least compared to the original isekai themes (this subversion is so common by now it's already all normal tropes). This much can be fine depending on what you do with the story, so I don't really care (there's little to care about, anyway). The protagonist was very promising at the start. Basically, it's a badass grandpa reincarnated as a young man, and his alphaness is what made this story unique. He had moments of badassery throughout the manga, but he also has lots of beta moments. One very annoying thing is that this is a harem, but the protagonist is pretty much asexual. I mean, that's fine, but what's the point when you make the story a harem with plenty of fanservice??? Don't make it an ecchi harem if you want to have an asexual protagonist. This manga is just teasing readers, making them think something will happen (in a romantic way). Well, no. Maybe in the novel, but not in this manga. Other characters are pretty uninteresting too. They're either all kinds of tropes that have already appeared in other stories, or they're just uninteresting. The protagonist also swings between not caring about them and caring about them too, and it's just confusing. Like, what does that guy even want? Instead of working for some goal(s), he's just being swung around by random events. Art is just average. Neither good nor bad. Overall, don't waste time reading it. Unless you're the type to buy into any isekai story you see.
(43 chapters read) Do you want to read an average, somewhat boring isekai where the MC isn't a moron, is overpowered, but has little to no ambition and instead chooses to go with the flow? The story is unique in a sense, slightly rushed but there aren't any glaring flaws. It's primarily light hearted, but there are serious moments. There seem to be plot holes, but I can't tell if they're inherent to the story or are caused by translation errors, yet they don't interfere too much with the story. In short, the story is good to read if you want to wind down after reading a more intense work. It's a great resetting point to average your expectations because the manga is 'okay'. The art is average. The characters are nice. Even though he has a diverse harem, the MC is aware that he's mentally older than everyone and chooses to go a more moral and ethical route. The sidecharacters are diverse, including a tactician, a dumb muscle, and a masochist, though most characters gets very little attention in the limelight. TLDR; Nice and average OP MC saves the world
