If so, then not my cup of tea, as I prefer stories where romance is involved with the MC choosing a girl in the story, like both Grandson and the currently airing anime, Darling in the Franxx.
It's not a harem. The romance in this series pretty much amounts to MC and main heroine being smitten for each other at first sight....then nothing. In other words, romance is almost non-existent in this series.

IMHO, a story can have lots of cute girls in it without having to make 3 or more of them attracted, fall in love, or flirt with the MC. Like Darling in the Franxx, where we can see that 3 out of 5 of the girls in the regular casts liking or focused on boys or even a girl who's not the MC ( Kokoro, Miku, and Ikuno ).

I prefer old-school Shounen-like stories, where MC only has 1 Heroine that he'll hook up with. Examples I'll list here are : Yuyu Hakusho, DQ : Dai no Daibouken, Dragon Ball Z, etc.

2 females liking the MC like Franxx is my max limit. 3 or more and I'll stay far away from it. I also prefer stories where the male MC has male friends too in his group like Franxx and Magi's Grandson, with some of his friends also paired off with their own girls.

Surrounded by only girls in his party/group is a setting that has been done in hundreds of LNs, not limited to Isekai, but also in Battle School and Slice of Life/Romcom genres. Gender balanced cast, or at least 2, 3 males in the regular cast is my preference. A ratio of 3 males and 7 females in the cast would also meet my preference, as long as the MC is not the only male in the group. Also, I don't mind Yuri couples ( but not Yaoi ), as long as the MC and his male friends get their own GFs too

2 girls. well one technically a dragon that he nearly killed.

no romance. only crushes from main girl and protag but the main girl prefers her profession and the protag prefers to going stronger so the romance is left in the back burner. no progress. no romance at all.

the other girl is a friend which is the best friend of the main heroine.

the old dragon is an acquaintance of the protag from his previews life.

The setting of the party is the dragon as tank, protag as heavy hitter, the main girl as a multi range support while the best friend girl as an archer or long range support.

^Does the MC ever figure out that he's "the god of Magic" the current people worship and that his old friend is "the god of sword"?

I've been reading the manga and his denseness about this, even though he's supposed to be smart, has put me off from reading the novel. It's been mentioned a few times and they have statues of him yet he somehow can't figure it out :/

Also, does the dragon recognize him?

In the WN, the MC never sees any statues of himself or his friend. What's shown in the manga is just added in.

As for the dragon, he specifically went to see her because they're acquainted. During their first meeting, the other girls take note of the MC's previous life's name coming up in the conversation and comment on that being the name of the god, but the subject gets glossed over pretty hard and it's unclear whether the MC, or even the dragon for that matter, make the connection.

^ From what I remember the dragon has been quite seclusive from the human population, so likely has no idea what even the names of the gods are, but she knows who the MC is. And she is also rather stupid, so there is nothing strange about it.

As for the MC, at least in the about half of the story I have read there was only some foreshadowing about him being the god, but while it's seriously clear to any reader, he seems to not care about such things and even if he were to know he is likely to not put much of importance into that. And it's always only lightly touched (mostly because he doesen't care). As for the friend, I think he considered it as a possibility, but not too seriously.
