At this time there only appears to be one more volume of the series. (The second volume is also currently available from J-Novel Club. Frankly, I cannot see the concept having much more material to work with than that, but as a one-off it is a sufficiently entertaining variation on the basic isekai concept.

Apparently the author put this on permanent(?) hiatus just after starting the first chapter of the 3rd volume(spoiler[they don't even get back to Japan]) and instead started writing his next novel, so anyone waiting for any proper conclusion is out of luck...

But I agree, it's an interesting concept.

Maybe just me, but I suspect this novel was specifically written for the light novel readers who now grows up and enters society as work force, since the wish insert gotta change accordingly. The “daily sex with goddess grants you power” still sounds trashy as heck though.

At a certain point, the wish fulfilment from the author is so transparent that it starts to feel like the author is whispering his sexual fantasies into my ear. It just feels so weird to me. This seems to be exactly that.

Shave the main character's head and he would be indistinguishable from Jet Black.

that's pretty much all isekai WNs that do not have a high school aged main character.
