    Japanese Title:
    わしジジイ、齢六十を超えてから自らの天賦の才に気付く

    Publisher: Syosetsu, Kadokawa

    Description:

    In a world where special abilities called skills appear, the old man Dill suddenly gained power one day. Unfortunately, it was a combat-specific ability that would be difficult for older people to handle. "I'm at a good age now ..." The second life, which came too late for an old man over 60 years old, is about to begin.

    Why It Should Get Picked Up:

    In most fantasy stories the MC is very young, usually a teenager. There are very few where the MC is an experienced old man. This is even rarer because it's an old man who's awakened a great power and technically a 'rookie'.

    Also from the spoilers I've seen it seems the old man recognises his limitations and uses his abilities to serve as a helper and mentor to others.

    i havent check yet but suppose he is a 60 year old man, will that be something or anything not to get wrapped up, literally being dragged around by girls, being a doormat, or such a generic isekai protag?
    cause if the things or only thing unique about this series is one of which what i said above, this series is no different from others.
    and most importantly does it have a 'plot'?

    Nope, he's kind of shrewd and he treats the girls as proteges, no romance there.

    It doesn't have an overall plot, the old man just wants to get out of the house and use his skill to do something useful with his retirement as an adventurer. But the story moves in a logical direction(What his objectives as an adventurer are, what he needs to do for his companions etc).
