    Im not sure if this is because the plot gets bad or I just dont like a popular MC. but somehow when the MC gets popular I lose some interest on reading it and just skim through... Because I feel like the author is bragging how much cool the MC is and he should act with pride similar to his popularity.. Well I know that the MC should be popular BUT!!! aghh!! } cant explain it well but I JUST HATE MC FLIRTING WITH HIS HAREM ITS LIKE BRAGGING IN FRONT OF ME HIS GIRLFRIENDS TO A PERSON WITHOUT ONE(ME)....

    Well I guess thats how I feel... I just dont like MC who changes after he became popular

    I prefer a low-key one.. anyone knows some of it??

    Either you prefer the story of an underdog protagonist (use this tag on series finder), or the story loses its main hook if the MC gets popular. In the second case, it gets worse when the Author realizes they done goofed and try to make MC unpopular by sending them to a new area (beginning the 'higher realm' cliche many come to loathe) or by making them do something out of character (initiating face-slapping system).

    Superstars of Tomorrow.

    ... For some reasons, it felt like this is the only thing I've been recommending lately *sigh*

    Sure. You're the lone wolf, the special snowflake. It's not like you're absolutely right, but we just can't brush off your opinion right? Or not.

    Just accept it, you're jealous, for real.

    Here, read this. No romance so far, realistic settings like Goblin Slayer, and most importantly, a harem killer. Stupid couples always die first. I'm sure it fits with your lonely and deserted heart.

    Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari has a really low-key MC. He's also the underdog, too. The story gets really good later on, too, and despite the MC getting more popular, he doesn't really change much (well character wise he changes a good amount but not in a bad way)

    Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? - She, well, everyone kinda knows her...but nobody knows what to do with her though. And the MC doesn't care about anybody's opinion either way. Well, I don't know how to describe it, but she doesn't do popularity too well, and her thought process is akin to her strength, so she just gives no shit about anybody else at heart because they can do nothing to affect her in any way. Cause they are such weak beings to her.
    Like, a god not caring about the thoughts of mortals, cause, they are mortals. How much they worship which god or what they do doesn't really matter to gods, lol.

    I guess you haven't learnt the supreme skill of living vicariously through the protagonist.
    You are far away from the Dao of Self Centeredness.
    You need a mentor. I prefer to live vicariously through the villains, so I don't enjoy stories with crappy villains..
    I hate to break it to you but you are not the target audience if that's how you truly feel but I doubt it.
