The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs

The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs v1 Chapter 10 Part 3

I so wanted to say that she was my little sister from my previous life.

“Love is wonderful, isn’t it. I’ll acknowledge your spirit of going as far as to cast away your right to the throne in order to obtain it.”

“…!”

Julian wasn’t an idiot. He indeed knew about that.

Even though he knew, he still chose Marie.

Wait. In that case, didn’t that make him worse than the average idiot?

“Would you indeed go as far as to throw away your current position?”

“Are you having a foolish laugh? Still, I would do that much for this girl. I don’t need status or prestige. Having her is enough…”

“I think that people want you because of your status and prestige, though. I believe people would take no notice of you if you weren’t the crown prince, but just an ordinary Julian.”

Would Marie take no notice of him if he lost his status, prestige, fortune, and everything? I couldn’t help but think so.

She’s the type that may hang out with him because of his good looks, but wouldn’t think about marriage.

“That can’t be true! Marie would accompany me. Marie would still be with me──with us.”

I was saying all of this because Marie was a terrifying girl. Her mimicking of the protagonist’s actions speaks for itself, doesn’t it? So much so that I think Marie had a talent for these kinds of things.

I don’t think what that guy had was genuine love.

In the first place, if it really was love, then there wouldn’t be six boys around her.

“How nice it must be. However, if you lose, you’ll have to refrain from associating with her from now on.”

I let go of the prince and hit him as hard as I could with the shovel.

There was a dent in the white armor, and the prince greatly shook inside, throwing him off balance.

Luxon informed me of the preparations being ready.

[Analysis complete. Securing the safety of the pilot is possible.]

“Going easy on you is a pain. Here, this will end it.”

I let go of the shovel and used my right hand to make contact with the chest of the prince’s armor. Once touching it, Arroganz’s right arm started shifting. Its interior glowed, leading up to the next moment.

[Impact.]

As soon as Luxon declared that, an impact blew the prince’s armor away into pieces. The audience shrieked once the armor had broken apart.

The armor had been smashed up, but the prince inside appeared to be safe.

It was nice that he didn’t put up any resistance since he had fainted.

Once the right arm reverted back to normal, I retrieved the shovel I dropped and shouldered it.

The arena fell silent.

When I looked at the referee, he sent a doctor before announcing the victor.

They took priority in confirming Julian’s safety.

When they realized that he had fortunately only fainted, the victor was declared.

“The winner is Leon Fou Baltfault…and therefore, the victor of this duel is Anjelica Rafua Redgrave. In accordance with the oath of a duel, the two──”

The declaration ended with them saying that the duel’s loser had to obey the victor. At that moment, the blue tickets signifying the bets made on Julian and the others had fluttered about within the arena.

The arena was engulfed in the quite pleasant sounds of shrieks and jeers.

It was indeed pleasant to hear these boos directed at me.

“Give me my money back!”

“Cheater! As if such a duel can be acknowledged!”

“Give it back. Give back my money!”

I raised my shovel, and slowly turned around while recording the faces of the audience.

So many of them had the expression of despair, but some that had bet on me tucked their important red ticket into their pockets.

Then, I addressed the audience.

“Everyone…gamble responsibly!”

After saying that, they got agitated and started throwing trash at me. However, I magnificently avoided them while making a loud laughter, returning to where Olivia and the others were.

After landing the armor and appearing out of it, the armor automatically stored itself into a box and returned to the sky.

“…I wonder if I’ll be able to collect my earnings.”

[Wouldn’t that be a matter of course?]

The box disappeared into the sky, and I put on a coat that Olivia handed to me.

“How was it, my fair lady? I made a great success.”

Anjelica had a complex expression.

Well, it made sense that she had complicated emotions after seeing me beat up the prince she loved.

“Right. Thank you.”

Her face did not say that she was thankful. Her complexion was pale, and it seemed that she was concerned about the prince.

So, I spoke with a serious expression. I didn’t poke any fun.

“He has no injuries. He really just fainted.”

If something went wrong, it would have been Luxon’s fault. Not my fault.

Olivia also had a complex expression. Above all, she seemed to feel a sense of impending danger as she looked at the people around.

“H, hey, was that really alright? There’s something about the gazes from the people surrounding us.”

The students were glaring daggers at me.

There were those that were booing, and those that were crying.

“What am I supposed to do?! What happened to my entire fortune was because of you!”

“I beg of you, return it to me! I’m in debt. I made bets using borrowed money!”

“Who would acknowledge such a bet like this?!”

This was a good lesson for the children of nobles who make fun of society. I heard people talking about borrowing money, but those people were stupid to try doing it.

They were stupid for gambling when they didn’t know who the winner or loser would be. They would be better off if they only gambled when they were sure of winning, like I do.

Hmm? Wait a minute…these guys made bets since they were absolutely sure that I would lose, didn’t they…? Well, it doesn’t matter to me anyways. I won against five people and won a bet. That was the result.

“It’s fine to ignore them. Those people did bet all they had. They reap what they sow. If they study and do well, the academy might cut their tuition costs.”

Anjelica sighed.

“Well said. Those people bet on a large amount, knowing that things could possibly turn out this way, right? You really saved me this time. Thank you…I’ll show you a token of my gratitude afterwards. I’m going to head over to his Highness shortly.”

After seeing Anjelica disappear as she quickly headed towards there, we walked to the changing rooms.

Olivia was worried about me.

“Leon, why did you say such cruel things to his Highness and the others? Wouldn’t it have been better to say nothing?”

We talked along the way there, but it seemed that Olivia held some kind of delusion about me. She seemed to think that I could have done better.

Actually, why was she this kind towards me? I had no recollection of doing many special things.

Perhaps it was just the protagonist being open-minded or caring? At any rate, wasn’t it a problem that I was the only one she was close with?

“People are harboring hate towards me, just as planned.”

“Is that okay? U, um, I think your marriage situation will be unstable from now on. Everyone’s really angry at you.”

“Aah, that’s fine. I’ll be dropping out of the academy.”

Olivia made a odd voice, saying “Huh?” towards what I said.

However, she was quite the beauty. Even that expression she had looked cute.

It was just Anjelica and Julian in the medical office.

Julian had only fainted and had no injuries, so the doctors and nurses read the mood and left.

Anjelica shed tears when seeing Julian’s figure.

He sat on the bed, and feebly hung his head, heard the result of the duel, and was shocked.

Anjelica knew that he didn’t agree to it.

“Your Highness, I’m really glad that you’re safe.”

Julian turned towards Anjelica with an emotionless gaze.

“Stop your shameless acting. Wasn’t it your duel representative that drove me this far into a corner?”

Anjelica couldn’t reply to him.

He was saying that what happened was her fault.

“…Your Highness, please listen to me. What is it that I can’t do? I…I’ve been doing my hardest for your sake.”

Anjelica had tried hard to be a woman suitable for the crown prince. She made so much effort towards it that it became her pride.

As someone of a duke household, she had undergone severe training from morning until night in order to one day become a queen. It began with the numerous mannerisms of etiquette related to culture and the fine arts, and Anjelica kept persevering to become someone suitable for Julian.

That was why she couldn’t accept girls like Marie who were able to be near Julian with no effort at all.

Anjelica had to sacrifice many things for the sake of Julian and put in hard work since she was a child. Even so, she lost in face of girls like Marie who just suddenly showed up.

Julian made a slight laugh.

“For my sake? I think it’s just that you want the position of being the crown prince’s woman.”

“T, that’s not it! That’s not my relationship with you!”

“I’m not wrong. You’ve never seen me for who I was. I have proof too. Do you even know what my favorite dish is?”

“I, I do! It’s that soup──”

She described Julian’s favorite dish, but the reaction she got was negative.

“──Wrong.”

“Huh?”

“I like the grilled skewer foods that I get to eat when I sneak outside disguised. They tell me that commoner foods aren’t suitable for me, so I couldn’t say it to you though. I’m sure that you would also want to deny me from such things.”

She couldn’t say what Julian’s actual favorite food was.

When hearing that, Anjelica wiped her tears.

“I wouldn’t! If you told me that, I would have immediately──”

However, Julian interrupted her.

“Marie noticed it without me even saying. When we went outside together, she understood me and invited me to a cart.”

When hearing that, Anjelica’s tears fell to the floor in large drops.

(…I didn’t notice it, and yet that girl did? I’ve been by his Highness’ side all this time, though.)

Perhaps feeling guilty, Julian made an apology towards Anjelica.

“…I know that this is rude towards you, and your household. However, the only one I love is Marie.”

Anjelica’s sobs intensified.

“T, that much is still fine. As long as I get to be your side your Highness──Julian.”

Julian shook his head.

“I…cannot love you.”

Anjelica, realizing Julian’s feelings, decided to step back. She turned around to leave the room.

“Your Highness, I’m sorry, I won’t say anything anymore. However…I’ll be rooting for your happiness from the sidelines.”

Julian made a cynical remark once Anjelica left the room.

“There’s no use saying that at this point…I wanted to hear that from you sooner.”

    1. It’s extra funny when you consider that ALL of those people were perfectly fine taking his entire fortune if they had won the bet. I could feel sorry for them for losing the bet in other circumstances, but now they’re just spewing sheer hypocrisy to try and get out of their mistake.

  1. Would like to see a scenario where Leon tells the 5 idiots their preferences and taunt them about how easy it was to investigate and trick them into ‘love’.

    1. The one issue with that would be the fact that he doesn’t care about their favorite foods or anything, and has almost certainly forgotten that kind of garbage from the conversation portion of the game. I guess he could have Luxon investigate for him, but I’m sure he’d think something like “Why would I spend any effort learning about a guy’s favorite foods?”

  2. “What’s my favorite food? Hah, fuck you, its this thing I’ve never eaten around you and refused to talk about around you.”

    What weird brand of autism does Julian have? Its like, a calm normal rejection to her face was all it would have taken to make everything clear. This idiot has refused to learn anything.

    1. It’s the same guy who ranted about how he hated his status, then in the very next breath tried to abuse it to get what he wanted. You can’t expect any redeeming traits from the character, because he was clearly written to have none.

    2. I thinks the point of this chapter is, Leon dropped cold harsh buckets of truth to everybody and reap all the benefits.

      I don’t expect Julian will thinking calmly after he lose and he’s a total hypocrite. let’s see their character development in second book.

    1. She probably won’t dump them? She’ll probably just slowly accidentally reveal her true nature. Anjelica is a fool in love, so she’ll probably stop her family from withdrawing their support.

      I guess there’s a chance she’ll get greedy and do something stupid like fraternizing with the enemy nation?

    1. He already said it. To quit School with the money he won after making everyone hate him. Can’t wait to see what stopped him from quitting school

    2. Well for i can understand:
      1.bet shiton of money to make more money
      2.beat the shit of the 5 to defend the honour of duke house (but mainly for his personal grudge)
      3.win and get the money
      4.seek protection from the said duke house
      5.wait for Crown judgement to strip him from his noble title ( no way he will get punished, because it will tarnished their reputation even more)
      6.dropped out from the school because he’s not a noble anymore (and rubbed it in front of his friend face)
      7.marry a noble lady which has lot of debt (if needed) or normal lady.
      8.live happily in the country side or Luxon dungeon

  3. “`“Everyone…gamble responsibly!”“`

    Like he is one to talk… pfft-lol.

    …“`started throwing trash at me. However, I magnificently avoided them while making a loud laughter and returning to where Olivia and the others were.“`

    suck a kiddo~

    1. He did gamble responsibly. As far as Leon is concerned he bet a pile of rocks against all the wealth they could muster. Try to keep in mind that he literally had the ai print those coins for him.

  4. Huh, so even Anjelica picked up on how odd it was that a girl who wasn’t around Julian would know his favorite food without asking. I’m glad she finally cut ties with him. One day he’ll realize what he gave up – and for a sham of a girl like Marie too.

  5. Thanks for the chapter! Probably not the last we see of him, hope he grows into a better Prince if not I hope the royal family has a more intelligent one hidden somewhere

    1. They’ll probably need to pull a cousin or two for that. It was written that the current king only has Leon for heir.

        1. Spoilers (click to reveal)

          Julian has a Lil sis that will become Leon’s engagement partner in distance future

            1. No one knows, because she hasn’t been personally introduced yet, only mentioned at the end of the 5th volume. I assume she’ll take a spotlight in the next volume.

  6. Thanks for the chapter, it kills me that they’re so short. I wanna know more, I wanna see what Leon does with his newfound fortune.

  7. Well if you weren’t total fucking asshole that would have condemned her to being a disgraced lady, I Might have sympathy for you, but no! You were a total dick to Angelica!

    Go drown in your ideals!

  8. Thank you for chapter and he mess over a lot of noble people. It also seen that more then just his two friends who he can’t be friends with anymore bet on him. I want to know if Maire did, in case there was a chance that the 5 idiots lost?

    Can’t wait to see how Marie acted in the coming chapter. It sad that we are still away off from Maire and Leon confronting now other.

  9. Thanks for the chapter
    Since this is the LN being translated, I wonder if Marie finds out Leon’s identity sometimes soon. I wanna see closure to their relationship in past life

    1. Spoilers (Click to reveal)

      Well the light novel hasn’t reach that point yet. Only in the Web Novel, that Marie finds out Leon’s identity and the two reconciled.

      1. Spoilers (click to reveal)

        More like marie is afraid of leon coz she know that when he is angry he will seriously punish her

  10. Thanks for the translation! And if in the US have a Happy Thanksgiving!
    At last Angelica is finally looking at Julian instead of his highness. A bit late for their relationship though. Wonder what she’s going to do about a marriage partner now that things are broken off with Julian, although she can stop all that dawn to dusk training on proper deportment, etc as the next queen. Curious on how much trouble Julian and others are going to get into for bullying Angelica, associating as a reverse harem with someone of dubious character like Marie, and furthermore losing a duel to an opponent who scored lower than them along with all five being crushed mercilessly without even leaving a scratch on the same opponent. Be nice if Jilk got into a lot of trouble for that thing with the bomb. Think someone will need to tell Julian that Marie not only didn’t try to sneak in to see him but couldn’t be bothered to have asked about him? Think she’ll blame him (and possibly others depending on severity of upcoming punishment) and show her true character, or even expose was acting whole time and that knew all their little secrets before they told her?

    Hope Leon is mistaken in thinking he’ll be expelled from academy as would break him away from main characters, he still has a lot to learn about managing a territory in class, and where else is he going to meet and interact with girls of a certain rank around his age? From sound of things it’s unlikely he’d find any girl of the rank required for marriage below the age of 20-25 who isn’t attending the academy. Besides, he’s raised too many flags with Olivia and Angelica!

    1. By how this novel goes alongside all the other novels in terms of plot, I’d say meeting girls won’t be that much of a matter, mostly because of Anjelica. But even if he does, if this goes on with the cliche plot, he should end up with Olivia anyway.

    2. For Leon as i mentioned in last chapters i think his best action is seeking protection from Angelica’s father and IF the crown has a brain, no way they will punish Leon for this, he is the new strongest knight in the kingdom by far.

      For this 5 i thinks they will receive education in their respective house or even expelled from academy because this lose is really embarrassing. I am more curious about the others fiancee. Julian got it easy, even with the stupidest reason ever, “she didn’t know my favorite food even though i never eat with her or having her around”.

      I personally think Leon switch kingdom or trying to be a king because this kingdom is doomed

  11. For the first time I want two girls liking one guy. Anjelica and Olivia in love with the MC and letting Julian rot in fucking hell, this time him suffering what she had to go through

    1. I almost feel like a harem ending for our MC would be appropriate, but he seems to have some strong feelings about that not being love or something like that. Would definitely be a great ‘f*** you!’ to the world he’s been put in, given the standard there is reverse harems.

      1. There’s harems too. Not sure if can only have one legal wife or not but Leon’s father, for example, is married to Zola and as Leon’s mother as a mistress with everybody only criticising him for being a low ranked noble. That and Zola’s club. Doubt they send off any of their own children to die, just the other wives’ or mistresses’ kids.

  12. I so wanted to say that she was my little sister from my previous life.

    So you realize it huh Leon.

    BTW, thanks for the chapter.

    1. Does he know? Previously he only mentioned that knew she was a reincarnator like he was from Luxon spying on her. Never said anything that had confirmed she was his sister. Most likely wishful thinking on his part so could settle things with his sister but doesn’t know it’s her. Otherwise he would have confronted her earlier or made a snide comment to her after beating Julian.

    2. I’m fairly sure that line wasn’t in the WN, only this LN version, but even so, I don’t think it means that he actually knows yet.

  13. Considering the odds against Leon, do you think the school bookies have enough money to pay off his bet? Payout should be at least double of bet right? He bet about 500 white gold coins correct? Chances of them getting even just that much from those who bet on Julian’s team seems unlikely. Seems like the bookies are going to be in as much trouble as the losing betters! 😀

    1. Most likely the bookies are simply acting as middlemen. They take a percentage or flat fee, then handle the accounting to distribute the pot into weighted shares.

      1. Yeah the bookies if they didn’t bet on julian should make money but they most likely bet on julian and will go into debt like everyone else

        1. Possibly, but unless they committed grand larceny against most of the noble families in the nation, the pot was untouched.

  14. I expected the line akin to saying “thanks for your money” rather than him saying “gamble properly”. I feel that the former will leave a bigger roasting.

  15. Chance. Court a lady when she’s down. Hyena style. Confirmed.
    Proceeding to next step. Erasing hindrance. On going.
    Next future step. Raising flags for harem. Confirmed.
    Thanks for the chapter. Waiting to collect flags.
    To be continued.

    1. After their defeat, the five idiots see Leon as a rival and want a rematch with him which of course they lose again.

  16. Lol, they mock him, they jeers on him, they spit on him, they laugh on him, they bet against him, but when they lose to him, they condemn him.

    Sorry, wtf!? And they are supposed to be noble both in society and academy!? Where are their brain!?

    1. Nonexistent. Do you really think with a culture that they have brains are prominent among them? Most of the spoiled bastards inherit their fortune from their household! Literally, no brains needed.

    2. Rotted away from a warped ego and lack of use. Considering these are island territories they probably grew up spoiled as child of the head, and shifting blame and responsibility onto others. Thus don’t know how to be responsible for themselves.

    1. Eh, Anjelica was too good for him, so it’s better for her this way. Now she’s free to join the MC’s harem, heh.

  17. Now that i think about it Marie inadvertedly may have saved Anjelica, remember that in the original game after Anjelica chalanged Olivia to the duel no one serves as her representative she loses is dishouned, forced to leave the academy and sent to marry a minor noble far from the capital(to put it simply she is abondened by her family), but thanks to how the events turned this time she will be able to remain in the academy and be part of her family, so becouse Marie took the place of Olivia the MC intervened after investigating…so even thow she hates Anjelica, Marie is one of the reasons why her live is not in shambles.

    1. Don’t know if Anjelica saved yet, and Marie deliberately provoked her to get her out of way and get a reverse harem ending. So if Anjelica is saved it’s all on Leon who probably would’ve at least told the five that she was innocent of the bullying if they were defending Olivia.

  18. Well. Then what would happen next? Will the prince renegade his oath and still choose to be Marie toy? Can’t wait for the next chapter

  19. Thanks for the chapter

    Between those reincarnated siblings, who gets the upper hand? Both played the Otome games. But I think Marie only played the main events of The Protagonist, which is why, she knew about the “Item”, and how to capture those boys. While Leon played all the side quests and capture those boys because he was ordered by his sister. That’s why he knew about Luxon.

    1. That’s exactly the issue for Leon. His sister had him help her finish the game after the war part started since she sucked at it, so she was able to do great on the initial portion, but was 100% going to leave a massive mess for the MC to clean up when it get’s to the war portion. I honestly have no idea what her plan was for surviving that since she didn’t even play it.

      1. She also is cheap enough not to pay for premium items to win the game. This is consixering that she took the money from her parents in her vacation too!

  20. I think the explanation was “The reason for the school in the capital is to give the regional nobles a sense of unity to the country so they don’t feel like rebelling” or something of that sort, but something tells me that Leon isn’t going to come away with anything resembling nationalism. However, the other students may become even more loyal to the country cause nothing creates friends easier than having a common enemy, and that’s just what they gained that day.

    Thanks for the chapter!

    1. They won”t have the time to unite once the war portion of the story comes
      By then, they woulx be begging to have him save them.

  21. My thoughts/rants on this chapter

    1. They basically reap what they sow. Just because they bet against him and lost does not justify their anger as it is of their making.
    3. So if we’re looking at this from a game PoV, Olivia has basically chosen to go with the Leon route…. I approve!
    4. Poor poor Angelica… May you find someone that would appreciate your kindness.
    And 5. JULIAN, YOU FUCKING IDIOT OF A FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT PRINCE. GO DIE IN A HOLE WHILE KNOWING THAT YOUR VERY EXISTENCE IS TRASH THAT DOESN’T EVEN DESERVED TO BE RECYCLED OR BURNED

    Thank you

    1. Olivia really didn’t have any chose beside the Leon Route because Marie block her but she gave Olivia the best route. There a what if chapter where Marie is the one who ended up on the Leon Route and let Olivia have the 5 idiots.

  22. – Marie has been cut off from Julian
    – Leon gained shit tons of mony
    Well my condolescent to you Angelica and Julian, try suicide next time

    1. I feel like the most logical move for the Crown is to secretly assassinate Leon, preferably by poison, claim it was an accident and seize his awesome Lost Tech Armor for the royal use.

      1. That will never fly with Luxon, he will destroy the kingdom if that happened, and no the kingdom raised his rank instead lol

        1. Oh dear. Don’t say what raised it to but if he’s lucky he’ll be raised high enough so he won’t have to go for the most corrupt range of girls going from Baron to Earl anymore. Granted the Earl and above aren’t going to be too happy with him for creaming Julian’s team but at least their houses have set better boundaries on their behavior and attitudes like restricting them from having a personal lover/servant, especially one constantly being shown off. Although even without incident with Julian it’s going to be hard for him to find a marriage candidate as he’s an upstart noble, territory barely large enough to support a barony, no residents on the territory, and as far as everyone else knows nobody on his island developing it or building anything to earn income or support human life like crops or buildings.

  23. I just thought of something what if maria tries to get leon into her reverse harem now i mean it would make sense she knows the war part is coning and everybody in her harem sucks at fighting she also knows he won a bunce of money and the best way for her to survive is to get leon in her harem

  24. “…I know that this is rude towards you, and your household. However, the only one I love is Marie.” So allow me to saying trash about you. What an asshole.
    He have a grudge that she don’t really know him. It’s his own fault, that he didn’t trully open his heart to Angelica. How she supposed to know if you didn’t show her your true self?

    – Prejudice his own fiance ‘cos she is from arranged engagement.
    – Overlooking that his loved one have 5 other lovers ‘cos he loved her and want to make her happy.
    – Underestimate his opponent ‘cos he isn’t in the top students from countrysid. Even though I’cant say he is medicore student. (70/100 isn’t a bad score) Also he solo conquered the dungeon and made a baron title himself. He assumed that he was overestimated. And loose so miserably.

    He will be a wise King in the future, without a doubt. ;p

    1. i think i even remembered them going on a trip on a casino or something close to that .. and the mc was raking profits … tell me im just hallucinating

      1. and shit about him killing a giant whale with a motor bike!? rescuing a princess and defending a cruiser ship !?…does anyone read the raw ? and tell me this didn’t happen!.. (btw i cant read japanese)

        1. Dude, what are you smoking? Lol, okay, so some of that sounds VAGUELY like some events in the next volume, but I think it’s more likely you’re confusing this with some other story.

        2. Only thing killed so far was a meter long flying fish with a rifle and some ant monsters in the dungeon with swords, a spear, and a revolver. Whales haven’t made an appearance yet if going to. No princesses have shown up so far, and things have been happening at an academy so other than flying ships used for transportation there haven’t been any cruisers or military/armed ships yet. Since they’re using carriages there aren’t motorbikes. Most likely as Krozam said you’re mistaking this series with a different one.

  25. “Marie noticed it without me even saying. When we went outside together, she understood me and invited me to a cart.”

    Yes Julian, true love means you can somehow read someones damn mind and then divine what streetfood they would like more.

  26. You wanted to listen that sooner?? How dumb can you be???? You got what you deserved…
    And Leon is going to drop out?? That’s not good… or is there Something bigger behind it??
    Thanks for the tranlations btw…
