easy to answer that. If you read the light novel, then you would know some r-rated scenes are about to come making this into one of those normal harem mangas. Thats my guess at least

Random and boring male teen/adult fall into a RPG and lives out a male power fantasy have been blight upon the land thank to Sword Art Online, .Hack or something equally lame and i usually drop them by chapter 3 but Re:Monster proved to be a special case it seems. It is still a power fantasy with a harem and all but the manga is way better if admittedly simple then often seen. I am not crazy about the rape subplots(female goblins exist and through how many village women can these level 1 monsters really burn through for example) but it is not completely mishandled. I like the clean designs and the genre conventions get used to interesting effects at times.
I love that the the manga is blatant that it is a big boy´s wet dream. He becomes an unstoppable force of nature very fast and every female in the land crawls into his bed willingly. Of course !
I don´t know how long i can read about Garry Stue´s big adventure in (kind off)R-rated Dragon Quest but i will stick around for a bit. At least this telling of the same old song has personality. But thanks to the real world connection i will assume that act 3 will be nonsense. World Customize Creator is a better version of the tale.

As far as I understand, this manga charm is its simplicity. It feed on the whoa factor that main character now reach new height and can do much more cool things. I'm aware many readers can only enjoy simple stories due to stress in other facet of their life. If they can spare more mind energy (I don't know what to call that stuff, I think they're called concentration or focus), wouldn't slightly complex story be more enjoyable?

But, man, isn't this one is damn too simple?

It goes on like what Rou done today, what he eats, what he become, what others close to him have became and what good stuff he came accross. And due to RPG game background setting, the possibility is endless! Without some sort of restriction, won't it be tiring? In this same vein I also bewildered with crowd's fascination to RPG-ey manga (adapted from their respective novels) like Tate Yuusha Nariagari, The New Gate, and Overlord. (I personally hate Nariagari for the lack of finesse and look forward to New Gate as it seems to bring new things to the table) In the past I also see (not read) Yureka, .hack, Btoom, 1/2 Prince, The Gamer, and I don't know what else. One or two title as genre exploration is fine, but exploitation seems to imply readers need something to stroke their proverbial genital.

If this manga is the first or second RPG-ey manga you came accross, it's fine and it's actually well executed. But if this is the umpteenth, don't you have enough?

Alright, granted, this story is unique in a very typical way. Who wouldn't want to reincarnate in a "fantasy" world where you have an advantage that everyone don't? The premise of the story is very rare in any type of media since it's complex to formulate an intrigue storyline out of it.

The main character, who is a goblin incarnated, has a very very haxed based power once you listen to his narration, which are aloooooot. In the most common term, he has the power of assimilation through consumption. Basically, eat this steel sword, your body will be steel like. Eat this magical stone and you can do magic. Eat guide book and you'll gain knowledge. Even godlike character don't have that kind of powers because the potential for such thing is unlimited.

Conflict... what conflict? There are zero conflict whatsoever beside inner struggles on doing the right thing which are heroic virtue. That is, don't kill for fun, don't pillage for the heck of it, don't rape other people because it's wrong.... and don't abuse your powers unless the other guys is worst than you. Meh, I hate stereotypical heroes. Ahem... the MC never loses a battle, but considering the world he in, if you lose a battle... it most like you will die or worse. Yes, there are more worst thing than death in a dark world. His powers constantly grow in a short span of time with great leap and bound. It will accelerated to absurd level very quickly. There are shit load of girls of various classes, but I don't seem to care for any of them. Their background was not told in depth. The same with the MC so the characterization seemed very shallow.

This is basically a Marty Stu story that the author want to stroke his own desire and ego of having power overwhelming and unlimited harem in a magical world where damsel in distress only at a walking distance.

Yep, that summed it up. Don't get me wrong, it's still a good story for pleasure read, but in all seriousness, it's nothing you haven't seen before. After a few first chapter with the awesome fantasy element featuring evolution chain and abilities, it gets old very quickly since none of the ability seemed to be touched on more than a honorable mentioned. I'm actually more interested in the world building aspect of it than the MC. He's just not that interesting at all, and the only reason he cared for human than his own race because the author wanted him to be relateable to us (humans), which actually seemed to contradict the small glimpses of his own background. Same reason for him being good even though it would be much better if he was a dark hero instead.

This works pretty well as a manga so far. The art is good, the pacing is appropriate and the story has potential. That said, I am not to certain about the story's future.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
After reading the manga, I checked out the light novel...

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The protagonist struck me as a mary sue.

He never loses a battle, he gained more powers than the X-Men combined, becomes richer than a small country and he gets a harem which he has sex with everyday. The main conflict has more to do with how he justifies his actions regarding killing, mind breaking and raping. Even this is not much of a conflict as there are no arguments, just internal monologues. Needless to say that this series is not for everyone.

The manga has made a good start but it has its work cut out for it if it wants to transcend the novel.

well, I like overpower MC and non-romance plot, so I like this manga. However, I violently hate the rape related, the older goblins' reaction to human women is extremely disgusting -"-
err, i changed my mind, this one is going to get the harem romance tag, i fed up with overpowered MC+harem+sexual actions

You may be right about his past life not being explained fully but in japan there isn't really a need for bulletproof vests because guns are next to nonexistent in japan. To get a gun license you have to take safety classes, pass a written exam, take a shooting test(sometimes), get a psychological evaluation, apply for a license, get a background check, and have a public survey done on you to see if people would trust you with a gun. you have to do all of this every 3 years if you want a gun in japan. (not to mention the fees)
^that is why he was stabbed by a special knife and not shot. how was he to know that someone might try to murder him in the future?

When a manga needs too much narrating, something is amiss. And this manga is completely driven by narration.

The MC just gain skills and powers for no particular reason or use. There is no character growth.

His background was briefly shown but never ventured upon. His base power seems to be just a convenience thing And not really thought through "yeah I was modified to gain powers by eating"... If he'd eaten a Kevlar vest, this manga would not even have to start because he wouldn't have died then..

Nah, might as well skip this one.

4 chapters, in just 4 chapters this manga became one of my favorites in 2014. it introduces many interesting and exciting concepts, while the concepts may not be original but the combination of them makes it something we never seen before.

The protagonist is reborn as a goblin and is required to survive with almost no help, he is likable and there is more to him than your usual shounen guy, there is a room for huge character development for each of the main characters introduced.

The idea of gaining a new abilities rapidly is exciting but the huge number of them can be overwhelming and forgotten by the time the next chapter arrives, thankfully the important ones are engulfed in your mind.

The most interesting concept by far is ranking up, ranking from goblin to alternate more advanced creature, and by having more than one route it really opens a way for readers to guess which one he would take.

Overall this is my first impression of the manga and I very pleased by it, as it is rare to find something exciting these days for me.
