The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs

The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs v1 Chapter 10 Part 2

Although both arms of Julian’s white armor had broke, he still struck Leon’s armor.

A sense of desperation could be felt from that image.

Anjelica clutched the handrail while looking at him going against Leon, who held an overwhelmingly strong power, and wept.

“It seems….you’re being serious, your Highness. It seems you really like that girl.”

Anjelica wiped her tears and accepted that her feelings didn’t reach him.

(I see. I have to step down. If that’s what his Highness wants me to do…then I’ll resign.)

Her line of sight focused towards the other side of the circular audience seating.

She glared at the face of Marie, who held a gloomy expression.

(However, I will not approve of you. You are not someone who can stand next to his Highness. You’re only a hinderance to him. That’s the only thing I won’t allow.)

Even after resigning, she would still try to pull Marie and Julian apart. She thought about it being for Julian’s sake.

That woman had four other men near her as lovers──and someone like her should not take the position of the queen.

The woman managed to ensnare five people in a short time.

It was possible that she would further increase the number of men she had.

If Marie became the queen, it was obvious that the seeds of conflict would take a sudden increase.

Furthermore, the royal palace wouldn’t stay silent about it either.

Anjelica glared at Marie, who became pale and dismayed from seeing Julian getting worn out.

(No matter what happens to me, I will drag you down with me. I absolutely will not let you do as you please with his Highness.)

It was heartbreaking to tear apart Julian’s relationship with a girl he claimed to love, but it was something Anjelica planned on carrying out no matter what.

Thereupon──

“T, that can’t be right!”

──Olivia cried out.

“Perhaps you love Marie, your Highness the crown prince. But, but! Anjelica loves you! After all, she has been watching this fight while looking pained the entire time! It may have been hard for her, but she kept watching with a sad expression while not looking away! You can’t say that isn’t love!”

Anjelica spoke to Olivia in a hurry.

“H, hey, stop.”

She grabbed Olivia’s shoulder and tried to have her back down from her agitation, but Olivia didn’t stop.

Her voice was well-heard, and her yelling attracted the attention of others.

The audience in the arena, both students and teachers, gathered their gaze towards her.

“Why are you in denial?! Are you saying that it’s not love unless the feelings are mutual?”

“That’s enough, stop. Olivia, stop already!”

“No, please let me say this. Anjelica, your feelings are love. The one receiving the love is free to either take them in or not. However, don’t just deny it altogether!”

Olivia’s words also reached Marie.

…Anger.

That was Marie’s honest feeling.

(This is why I hate good girls. Her head is full of flowers, isn’t it? Love is annoying when the feelings are one-sided! It’s very annoying. Hearing her speech is making me irritated.)

Marie disagreed.

However, when Olivia won over the people around her with her clear voice, Marie revealed a frustrated face.

──She felt like her true self was being exposed.

She became largely aware of the fact that she was being a sham.

She snatched away the position that belonged to another girl originally.

The one who originally had rich and influential boys leaning towards her was Olivia. Even though her position was snatched away, she still shined.

(What’s with her supporting a somewhat strong mob? I have everyone. That’s definitely better than being with a comical mob who just happens to be strong.)

Olivia looked straight at Marie.

Her stare was frightening.

She took just a step back, feeling as if her deceit had been seen through.

Marie felt as if Olivia was saying that she would take back her position that had been coated in lies.

──Something occurred at that moment.

“──Is that all you want to say, girl?”

Julian squeezed out a voice.

Julian replied to Olivia in a muffled voice coming from the inside of his armor. His tone was filled with fury.

“一Is it love if it’s forced onto me one-sidedly? Is it love if the girl only sees me as the crown prince? I…I’ve found a woman who will look at me for who I am. She understands me. This is love. This is what love is! Anjelica, have you ever tried understanding me? You’ve been forcing your feelings onto me. That isn’t love. Don’t get involved with me ever again!”

Marie regained herself after hearing Julian.

(R, right. I’m not in the wrong. She’s the one that’s wrong. What’s up with the protagonist standing with the villainess? If this were the game, wouldn’t they be going against each other? Just go and fight with each other!)

Julian still planned on fighting.

“So, let’s continue. This duel won’t end until one of us dies. I’ve resolved myself. How about you?!”

The grey armor simply stood while shouldering a shovel.

(Julian is the crown prince. If it were a noble, they would be able to read the situation. How would you feel about killing the prince of your own country? You’d realize that you need to lose, right?)

Thereupon, Leon…started tormenting Julian even more than before.

“You’ve resolved yourself, you say? You mean that you hadn’t been prepared in this fight? Are you saying that you’ve resolved yourself on your loss? Are you looking down on me? Actually…that’s the way duels went in the first place. We don’t take the lives of others simply due to an unspoken rule within the academy, but if we got serious, things would soon be over. Didn’t you notice? I’d be fine even if I had to deal with all five of you at once. Your fun ends here. I was being cautious since you guys were so confident of your strength, but you’re all weaker than I thought. Give me a break. When it’s like this…it seems like I’m the one who’s bullying the weak.”

In addition to criticizing him, he also made a complete fool out of Julian and the others.

Marie thought for a bit.

(W, who is this guy? He’s a completely terrible, naggy person who complains about others, like my older brother!)

“Could it be that you didn’t prepare yourself before, but now that you’re losing you are? I know that you’re being stubborn, trying to win by using your life as a shield. However, it’s quite apparent that you’re faintly hoping for me to back down when you said that. I suppose that I’d have to accept defeat when realizing that I can’t kill you, the crown prince, right? How nice. You’re his Highness the crown prince, so you use that to win battles. I will commend your stubbornness in using your status to the maximum degree while still claiming that you didn’t want to born into royalty!”

Everything in the stadium had a thought in their heads.

─This guy is the worst.

Though he was harshly torturing him, there was no fault to his argument. In fact, Julian didn’t talk back, nor did he move. There was the faint hope that Leon’s heart would waver at least somewhat.

However, Leon hadn’t budged one bit.

“Look, tell us that you lost. Beg me to let you win because you don’t want to be separated from your cherished Marie. Tell me that you didn’t expect to lose, and that you beg for forgiveness. No wait, you can even make it an order as the crown prince!”

Julian refused.

“T, that’s not possible! This is a sacred duel. It is courtesy for both of us to fight!”

“Huh? Are you saying that I should do what you want and admit defeat? Your Highness Julian, how harsh of you~. No matter how you look at it, wouldn’t admitting defeat here be an insult to this sacred duel~? We can’t just turn back after coming this far. Or perhaps you’re going to make a perfect speech that will move me deeply? Well, I don’t think my heart will waver, though. Despite there being five of you, hearing you makes me want to tilt my head and treat it as a joke. My heart has not moved a single millimeter. On the other hand, I am impressed by how often you can make lame speeches!”

The mood in the arena worsened.

The crown prince’s displeasure grew as Leon agitated him. The cries of “Your Highness the crown prince, finish off that guy!” gradually grew louder from the girls in the audience.

(This guy is revolting. It seems the worst kinds of men are everywhere.)

Many girls and boys were booing Leon.

I breathed a small sigh inside Arroganz.

Luxon talked to me like I was the worst person.

[You had a lot to say, didn’t you. Are you feeling the greatest right now?]

“I do think I said too much. However, I’d be bothered if those five didn’t realize their own situation at least a little bit. These guys will be the center of the country in the future.”

Right, I would be bothered if these five remained the same as they were right now. At least, I’d be bothered if they didn’t realize their position of being at the top of the top.

Furthermore, it would be bad if they didn’t calm down at least a little…and if Marie keeps deceiving the five.

[Were you trying to force yourself as a villain? Was it fun?]

“…To be honest, it was really fun. Well, I don’t think I’ll do it again, though.”

With me as the villain in the arena, the voices supporting the prince were strong.

…That was fine.

Julian approached me while the people around booed me.

He tried to strike me, so I caught the blow.

“…Your Highness Julian, I will not back down.”

“Let go. Let goooo! You beast of a fiend who doesn’t even know the way of the knights! Even if I can’t win against you, I don’t plan to stop fighting this──”

Arroganz pinned down the rampaging white armor.

It was really good that there was this much of a difference in ability.

“Shall we have a serious discussion? Do you really think that you’ll find happiness this way?”

“W, what is it you want to say?!”

He claimed that both his love for a woman who had other boys with her, and him insulting his fiancee was genuine love. I shed a tear when thinking about how this guy was going to be the king in the future.

The people around still thought of him as a student, so they didn’t really realize this. No wait, perhaps the ones that did realize didn’t want to think about it too deeply.

It was obvious that in the future, something would trigger with Marie being in the center of it.

If a girl who was surrounded by five boys had a child, whose child would that be? It would certainly raise some doubts, and such doubts would definitely become a central topic amongst them.

If that happened, what would this guy do?

Would he come to his senses and find a woman to make a heir to the throne with?

Well, there’s a long ways to go before that.

Even though he’s the crown prince, having backers is necessary in this world. Powerful ministers and leaders──the feudal lord nobles.

The government wouldn’t run smoothly with a king that people don’t accept.

Factions or things of a similar nature can be serious for a king.

Furthermore, after doing some investigation, it turned out that the largest backers of the crown prince were the Redgrave duke family. Anjelica’s household.

They unified factions and had them support the prince.

This guy was willingly making an enemy of his biggest supporter.

In the game, this was where the saint came in, but the problem was that Marie wasn’t a saint. She was only a reincarnated person who was doing well.

In other words…a mob just like me.

She was going to mess up at some point. No wait, she was partially on the way towards that already.

I felt like I was going to have to clean up after Marie’s mess.

  1. Thanks for the chapter!

    But damn was this chapter pretty short. It ends on me wanting to read more of this ln.

    1. Actually when he died all bad stuff that man had to hide to save his sister’s face open like Pandora box soo she gonna suffer on a second time now

    2. Marie (leon’s sis) is THE ROOT CAUSE OF HIS DEATH
      And EVERYTHING went smooth for her because this bitch sister use him as a fucking scapegoat. Now that he died, she is nothing but losing and escaping the reality

      1. Actually she got what was coming as well. After he died their parents treated her as a nuisance and didn’t help when her own husband (I think she got married some time after) left. She died soon after and came back as Marie.

      2. I disagree. She trully is a bitch. But the fact is, she only blackmailed him to finish this stupid otome game. She don’t locked him in the cage and starve him to death. He was so dumb and so focused in finishing this game, that he worn out so much to lose a consciousness on the staircase. It was really her fault, that he can’t take care of himself? For me it’s lack of a common sense trully killed him.

        1. If she didn’t blackmail him, nothing happened. So it’s still her fault.
          And if I didn’t remember the story wrong, she said he must finished a game before she come back from vacation, if not she will not explain the truth to his/her parents.

          So, yeah it is her fault.

          1. So are you saying she is a murderer ‘cos she ordered him to finish the game? He himself is the ONE and only ONE who’s directly worn out to the state when he lost a consciousness. Nota Bene if he don’t have a weak body (nothing mentioned by author) then it’s quite a challenge to turn into such sorry state leading to his death. He was an adult who should have enought intelligence to know how to take care of his health.

            1. Are we even sure it was because he was worn out that he died? What if he died because of some disease he couldn’t do anything about? Or what if he died because their god wanted him to go here? If he really died simply becausde he was worn (which is unlikely) than she’s still the one at fault but not completely. It’s both of them. Since his sis is a complete b**** anyway, I’d happily completely blame her for MC’s death.

              1. It doesn’t take much for someone to lose consciousness, even at times when they need to be the most active. I’ve had many a time where I almost got into a car accident just because I was about to fall asleep at the wheel.

            2. Yeah, no blackmail, nothing happened.
              For me, the one that started the problem is fault, expect they have enough of good reasons.

              About MC already adult,well he still human and human still can make mistakes. When human met unexpected situations by themselves many of them cannot make their head cool enough to think a reasonable method to solve their problem, after sometime pass many people regrets that they cannot make their head cool enough to do something that smarts peoples should do.
              Only a small amount of people that can cool their head and think reasonable when unexpected situations happen.

          1. emm you understand spanish? if not,this might be hard to explain, i’ll try, she have the half of the guilt,the MC had to finish the game in a limited time for that reason he pressed too much and died,but he is also to blame because he could send her to hell :3(i m bad with the english)

  2. Actually just let them ruin the country therefore Leon would be free to do whatever he want.
    Then from the ashes let’s build another one that makes more sense than this one.

    1. Considering the wars and sky pirates who’s to say problems won’t reach Leon’s Home? Like bring invaded by an evil country who wants to expand its territory and preventing resistance by killing off all the previous tenants?

      1. Considering the way to Leon’s HQ is perilous with unknown force trying to conceal it from the rest of the world. Also he’s not yet told anyone the coordinates to his HQ so he’s safe unless his sister somehow knows the whereabout of the hidden loot box island.

      2. Luxon says it won’t because it’s a self-sufficient, self-replicating, space-faring warship. Leon, anyone he brings with him, and an infinite number of their descendants would do quite well even if the entire planet suddenly disappeared without a trace. This is THE most powerful cheat I’ve seen in any isekai outside of effective godhood. Any attempt to create tension through the threat of force is moot as long as rocks don’t fall and everyone dies. Now that he has something this absurdly powerful, the only remedy is to introduce another something equally as broken.

  3. ¡Thanks for the cap!, finally Leon realized that he will take care of the problem called Marie, ¡i can’t wait to continue reading this novel!

  4. Well, I have enough of this BULLSHIT!!!
    Those 5 idiots have their role in the future for their country and still going to throw it away… GIVE ME A BREAK!!!

    1. I think it can’t be help.
      Even in our world history, there are many men that turn into an idiots because of women.

      1. but not at that level a prince or king would not willingly accept a woman with 5 people, even the queens in the stories killed the concubines to the king’s displeasure since he could not do much for his status as queen (Queen with noble lineages of high importance or a princess from another country)

        1. King or queen or prince still human, so they still can do something that unbelievable idiot.
          And this case for my POV is not different from the royal that only do stupid thing to the point that made inhabitants starting revolution and end their dynasty in term of how unbelievable idiot that people can become.

  5. Thanks for the chapter

    Wow Rion is really didn’t back down with brutal honesty, it might be worse his standing in the future but it will make worse for this five.

    And if he didn’t count how he get everything after this fight, he got gambling money and after shaming 5 important person including crown prince he can lose his aristocracy rank, like he always wanted. And he can request support from Anjelica’s family with reason “i defend your daughter ” now help me. My point is this guy is amazing and knowing this author, in no way all of this will happened.

    1. Spoilers (Click to reveal)

      He wil get a raise in rank and became official noble, while the 5 lose their standing in the family

    1. Then he would be throw into jail for murderer, and probably everything he owns would be transferred to either his sister, his parent or to the country (since officially he is from an independent household)

      1. Or leon can accidently reflect the bullet that hit idiot prince amor and land on Marie head. Kino in kino no tabi did that when she accidently kill the king and nobody arrest her :))

  6. Thank you for the chapter~

    Wow you really on fire eh TL-sama. I already prepared my soul for no chapter today (since usually it’s 2 days) and there’s suddenly 1 notification popped up.

    And damn, this MC really voice his thought out, and his head is really good for able to think “normally” like that. Can’t wait for the grand finale! And i think Olivia/Anjelica will stop Leon later.

  7. Thanks for the chapter.

    I think if Marie have a child, it would be Kyle’s. And she will claim that its one of the 5, the one with more influence than the others.

  8. Thanks for this part of the chapter.

    Yeah… even I can’t hide the obvious anymore, MC will always be forced to clean up his sister’s messes. He may always win the battle, but with her he always loses the war.

  9. Thanks for the chapter! I love Leon and Luxon’s relationship… I think Marie is under the usual reincarnate/transmigrate into an otome game misunderstanding — she thinks of it like a game and forgets that this a real world with real consequences. There ain’t no save function and definitely no redo…

  10. Thanks for the translation! And thanks again for doing it so quickly! Curious to see if Leon made any plans to counter bad image from beating prince. Since did it for own personal reasons doubt will seek aid from Anjelica or her family. Be a hoot if suddenly discovers opened harem route with Olivia and Anjelica. Wonder if Marie will finally explode and spill the beans.

    1. He doesn’t care about getting bad rep, he WANTS to be demoted and left alone in his territory without extra responsibilities and the need to look for a relatively high-ranking wife. Of course, things don’t always go the way he wants…

  11. Thank for the chapter. Next time we see what will save the Prince from our hero who is being the villain because of Marie and the 5 idiots. It maybe best to crush this country and start over but I don’t think Leon want to have to take care of a Country. He just want to live a NEET fill life in the far off countryside with no trouble.

  12. Julian rejecting Anjelica’s feelings…is the worst, such a spoiled brat that can’t see more than to himself is the next king? (sorry for my english)
    Thanks for the chapter~~

  13. (W, who is this guy? He’s a completely terrible, naggy person who complains about others, like my older brother!)
    Despite her nasty personality, she think alot about her brother isnt it?

  14. Is it me or does it seem that despite her intelligence and smarts Marie only goes for what can get in moment and doesn’t really think or plan ahead much? After all, she only played up to the battles in the late game and blackmailed her brother into finishing it for her because couldn’t win. Granted part of the reason was because she was too cheap to buy the microtransactions for better equipment but did she really think that finding the stuff her brother bought would be enough to win the upcoming battles considering a game has limited conditions and actions while reality is a hell of a lot harsher. For example, Leon mentioned in dungeon that in game attacks are turn based so would definitely get hit but in reality either side could make use of various things like maneuverability and terrain that weren’t in game design to defeat enemies without being attacked along with enemies having the potential to do the same. Speaking of the game, considering the issues Leon mentioned if Marie married all the capture targets and ended up pregnant, how would being the Saint help the protagonist solve the issue in the game? Or is it like one of those game things where the details of the resolution are vague and a happily ever after ending is given so the problems are just solved without any explanation of how the problems were solved.

    1. It’s not that Marie doesn’t think ahead, it’s just that she’s too focused on her own gain to care about the consequences for everyone else around her. She’s a selfish little bitch, at least at this point in the story. She just want to live an easy life in luxury, pampered by the bishies.

  15. Thanks for the chapter! Marie is so stupid. Like Leon said, what will happen if the crown prince was part of a reverse harem? The answer is, a lot of trouble. It would be different if the crown prince had one, but that’s a different matter.

  16. From Ch.10.1 to 10.2 I sense the flag named ,,Marie will be pregnant with Kyle’s child”.
    Nice Karma Leon. Even in the afterlife you and your sister are constantly messing with each other.
    Both deserve this fate. If someone ask me.

  17. I think MC’s being too nosy. Let that country fck itself up honestly. I hope after the duels he’d just take all the money and start a new country, but we wont see that cause he needs to remain there to start a harem. and the whole school reaction is straight illogical.
    please at least coup the fck outta this country at the end.

    1. It’s not the school that’s illogical, it’s the country’s culture that’s illogical. Might not be as strong or obvious in real life but even today got kids in school trying to get close to popular and talented individuals while condemning anyone who gets in their idol’s way. Take the quarterback for the school football team. How often does his bad behavior get overlooked or glossed over so he can keep making great plays? How often do students and teachers refuse to believe he’s a bad guy who bullies a student with no friends or support just for kicks only because he’s a great football player? How often do they go out of their way to provide alibis or help to protect his reputation? As for the country’s culture it seems doomed to collapse eventually due to overindulging the women at the expense of the men. Not setting boundaries on acceptable behavior isn’t making the women better women, it’s spoiling them rotten. Like Zola or Leon’s older sister. Constant complaints on how they’re not provided enough money, food or drinks irregardless of quality are never expensive enough, and yet not a single sign of a thought of them doing something to earn money themselves or contribute anything beyond giving birth to an heir.

  18. i think Marie was brocon but have tsundere personalities, because she still thinking about our MCMeven after got reincarnated

    1. So? It takes time, effort, multiple checks for accuracy, etc. to do a translation. I’d like daily translations too but considering how much I’ve had to type things up I’m aware of some of the difficulties and time it takes to do this type of thing. If you’re bored pick a part or whole chapter, and PERFECTLY TYPE a copy of it. See how long it takes you just to type it correctly. That is just a small part of the effort put into making a translation. So yes it’s irritating to have to wait a while between translated parts but translators have a health and life of their own which take priority. Also, can read these for free so if really have a problem with how long it takes why don’t you get some raws and translate yourself.

  19. Thanks for the chapters

    And, the feelings when you finnish the chapter and realize that the comments take about 70% of the scrollbar…

    1. Need a spellchecker. Think you meant finish not Finnish right? Watch out for the autofillers and auto-correction. Typed a few things in a hurry that turned weird because of those. Mine loves to add ome whenever I use ‘s or add s to the end of a word.

  20. This king needs to consider all the strategies and circumstances that can arise from him doing this all for a sh!t term like “love”…..
    Thanks for the chapter…
