I read it up to a certain point. It was alright.

The protagonist, having been turned into a skeleton, apparently no longer has sexual desires. Yet the author/protag, makes plenty of references to how sexy or "stylish" his dark elf companion is.

I like when the author gives us thoughts of the protag, or maybe his outlook on things. In this regard, the protag is more similar to a mute, generic player character in an RPG, whose purpose in life is to silently tag along with the story plot and nods his head when asked a question.

The only two apparent motivators for the protag are the eros elf (over whom he apparently can't but still does lust over), and getting his flesh body back (probably partially relating back to the first point).

To be fair, there are some points I can appreciate; The setup of the countries is interesting, past events reflect themselves in future events (sometimes novels have apparent short term memory loss), there are some details of the skills and tactics used that give the world some life.

If faced with a binary [recommend]/[do not recommend], I would choose [do not recommend]. The world is interesting, but not enough so to overcome the thoroughly lackluster protagonist.

Adding to what bobIV123 wrote, v3 ch 23 in: it's your OP MC clichè story, the VRMMO transfer one. Still, it's very nicely written and more than nicely (professional level) translated.
The Main Character is a level-headed one, so no "ecchi times" nor the habitual teen oriented erotic idiocies: it's a story that develops nice and steadily, with lots of traveling and nice descriptions of places and scenery.
No "skill levels", no numerical values: one can feel the author trying to really blend in the clichè of the VRMMO player into some sort of realistic conversion of it; a funny thing is that, contrary to most novels, we don't have the staple "dimensional bag", but in its stead we have the frequent usage of a teleport-sort (leap) skill and gate travel magic.
The only real "minus" so far is the naming of two countries: Sacred VAN DAMME Kingdom (really lol) and CANADA Kingdom (re-lol). The latter explained a bit, but still they were a bit of a punch, especially in the beginning chapters biggrin

Overall it's not one of the "best series", but really worth a read.

I'm only 12 chapters in, but I'd say it's a decent read, not great, but not bad either.

So far the fights are kinda meh and lack any visceral feeling, but that's likely because the main character is a lot stronger than stuff like bandits so it's pretty one-sided.

It has a good feeling of exploration and if you like cute animals then there's plenty in it for you, though not too much for people who don't care about that.

I kinda want to compare this to overlord (novel) but I'm not far enough in yet.
