Well he has the power to make them suffer more before dying. Like KILLING parts of their bodies first or KILLING their fighting capabilities for them to know the glory and power of the MC before he instant death them. BUT HE RARELY DOES THAT. It just goes, BOOM. You're Dead. The antagonist didn't even get to remove those annoying smirks on their faces and just died like that...
I mean seriously. Sorry if I appear as the biggest s3xist in the world but being all cutesy with animal will not make you look like a man in the eyes of anyone. Almost crying over because your sweets was spoiled is not one either. At the same time, other than saying repeatedly, "I am a man." he doesn't give any evidence to support this. And it doesn't even help that he spoils his little sister and allows her to call him onee-chan for all to hear.
One time he acts manly is when facing a group of Player Killers who had his friends. In the first place, this is a game, did he really have to be all that dramatic as if they will die in real life? They can just log-out but nope, there must be some drama in a world where you don't die in real life and just lose half your gold when killed by a Player Killer. Those players are even newbies, why not let them experience it. They don't have money in the first place anyways. But welp, gotta save them, and spend three revival item in the process costing him MILLIONS OF GOLD. And just says, "It's fine." BAH! -_-
And to add more, it is that one time he had an "act of bravery" and yet is subjected to humiliation by wearing girly clothes as punishment for his recklessness. And he takes it like a little biish and goes all girly and blushy in front of all to see. In front of a STAGE, seen by THOUSANDS of PLAYERS. A man? I don't see one. I see a normal girl.
Lastly, fine, being afraid of ghost is valid for both genders. But getting into lewd lucky situation because of a GAME GHOST with his best friend, A MALE at that, and BLUSHES, IN FRONT OF EVERYBODY TO SEE, is just showing he is a girl. Period. If he was a man as he claims to be. He would've just scoffed it up and said "He bruh, stop touching my tiddies. Get your own tiddies, these are mine!" But nope, he just has to be that one girl in every harem protagonist that is in a lewd lucky situation. Doesn't really help him when he is surrounded by girls that is shipping him with his best friend since they thoroughly believe that he is a girl. And if I was in their shoes, I would think so too, even if he shows me a deek in real life.
Sometimes I wish the author goes full SAO and trap them in the game world. Or go New Gate style and send them into that world with NPCs being sentient. Then he gets to be a girl with his girl heart and soul. I feel like he was born with the wrong body. Just saying...
I mean, a goblin only needs less than 285 days to almost be a God? Seriously? Also, it is good and all the we don't have too much action and more on slice of life or whatever you call it, but if majority of your volume, is about hot springs, having parties, hot springs, eating this, hot springs, eating that, hot springs, I drunk that alcohol. Oh wait, did I mention hot springs? Because if I didn't, the author sure did... a lot. If not those, on rare accounts, it is like, I did this, then beat that. This subordinate evolved and here are is a wall of text you won't really care about (Sure I would care if it is with the 8 Demon Generals). The monsters here are like this, I am putting this wall of text here because I can't use any other means to introduce these once or twice mentioned monsters. I mean, there are some real action with major bosses, but come on, those major actions are countable by the finger of my faphand by day 285. Soon, it led me to just skim through the chapter and hope to the gods out there that a major conflict would just effing start already.
