Good. The manga is one of my favorite isekais and really funny. Just a warning though, it supposedly gets pretty NSFW later, unless they tone it down from the webnovel version...

Whats good about it though?

The description sounds really generic and that they tell you from the start

tells me this is gonna be a harem isekai(or turn into one). Something thats so oversaturated(in my opinion) in the current market that it's gotta bring something fun or unique to stand out.

I'm guessing he finds some wacky broken interaction with his skills?

Honestly I thought it was a female protagonist from the cover(which would make it rarer).

I'm not against the genre but in fact, enjoy it so long as it's interesting.

I'd also be interested in hearing from novel readers what separates this series from its kin, as the blurb sounds rather generic.

From what I understand the LN cut those parts out.

It's one of the funniest isekai mangas I've read while not being wholesale slapstick. Of course that depends if the humor strikes a chord with you...

For an isekai series, the only way I can describe Loner Life is that despite its use of the usual tropes and how banal it may seem at first glance, it ends up being just plain weird.
