This is pretty good until the mid 20s when the phantom theif arc happens. The art is great, I liked how the mc goes with the flow with the girls and they aren't omg don't touch me even though I like you which is also nice. But my god the author writes the main lead during this arc as if they have the brain of a 7 year old. You start to notice the brain dead problems like he kills monster triple his level and we get no indication he gains any levels from that. It seems like every new character or enemy is very high leveled for no reason. Keeps going deeper into the dungeon without hard farming for levels or actually getting stronger in anyway other than the occasional new skill from lewd points. Has tons of points, doesn't get any versatile or op skills (Invisibility, teleport, flight, etc.), doesn't ask sage for skill advice. Gets confronted with a problem previously and has good problem solving and is quick to react and survive and escape or not die. This arc has the reaction and brain power of a potato. An example, he uses judgement eyes to see the enemy, whose trying to take one of his girls, has level A lightning weakness, doesn't even remotely cross his mind to use his lightning skill until after it's all over. Has the chance to sneak attack a summoner later, sneak attacks the summon instead except only from the side to dodge the summoner thats behind it so it can still block it but op sword wins and kills summon. Just kill or defeat the summoner and win? I'm fine with people shouting out their attack names cause thats every manga, but why dear god does he have shout out his inner thoughts, "I attacked you with lightning because it's your weakness!" I mean you showed us that previously. So is the author that dumb or do they believe because it's an ecchi/harem story we are that dumb? Or "I combined water and lighting for this attack" which he's used before but now is saying it out loud cause otherwise how would everyone around him know how smart he is with only the skill names I guess? I'm fine turning off my brain for a bad translation, or for bad characters or plot, just don't treat your audience as stupid unless its a fourth wall break or comedy. Also don't make any of your main characters who are normally moderately inteligence or quick witted go potato just so you can create tension and NTR bait because you couldn't create an intersting obstacle for the party to fight or conflict for them to overcome. Especially not where the main lead is a third of their levels yet can still not get one shot by a speed rogue when he has no speed or defense skills like cmon man use your brain.

The only reason why I could continue to read this is because I wasn't taking it seriously. The time spent glossing over the pages I was trying to think of a song I heard a while ago (I found it and it's called Riptide by Vance) but once I got back to focusing I was astonished by the utter trash I was reading. This mc is a dime in a dozen, don't read. Cringe beyond belief, really makes me wonder what this author is like in real life.

Average manga at best.

The MC is weak, gets a cheat skill, and copies everyone else's skills trying to become strong but fails.

Had a huge potential in the beginning but turned thrash. I came after watching the anime. This is the first manga with a better anime adaption. At least the anime has tons of fanservice which compensates for the thrashy story.

The worst part is that the story gets repetitive and the MC is a goody-two-shoes, the kind I do not like.

I had high which were crushed.

Just my personal opinion.

It had a good start, but it soon became ecchi trash. It's still readable, but be prepared for missing logic and artificially implemented stupidity for the sake of either cliche ecchi or cliche isekai scenes.
