Both western readers and the author fault tbf, the first is because from what i got after all these years reading discussions/comments and etc, a good portion of western readers/watchers have a problem with understanding the concept that a manga/anime story doesn't need to have "something important happening" to be good, they always want something to happen in order to have some validation so it doesn't feel like they're wasting time or that a series is good, i saw this kind of attitude many and many times, some people are just fixated with what they consider as "plot", in any genre. But i also think it wouldn't hurt if Nekoguchi did more in terms of romance or at least level up the ecchi/lewdness, maybe to not make it feel a bit stale sometimes but well, the manga ended already, looking forward to his new series.I think it was a good series for what it was: an ecchi fanservice comedy with a decent amount of romcom elements inserted. And it did that well.
The discourse around the series in some places however shifted towards being all about wanting romance progress, as if the series were a straight up romance or at least a typical romcom with some ecchi elements inserted, and always complaining about too many chapters with just fanservice and no romance progress. This feels really weird to me, because Amano Megumi is in my eyes not a romcom series with some ecchi gags, but rather the other way around. Heck, it is even in the title, "Amano Megumi is full of openings", i.e. ecchi moments. That's the entire point, lol.
