The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs

The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs v1 Chapter 11 Part 2

It was summer vacation.

Marie was told to stay in the academy, and then a messenger from the royal came to tell her about what was to be in the future.

The messenger was a government official and spoke in an uninterested manner.

The contents stunned Marie.

“W, wait a minute. W, what do you mean by disinheritance?”

Gathered were Julian, Marie, and the other capture target boys.

Only the messenger was speaking calmly and in a professional manner.

“It’s as you heard. His Highness Julian was disinherited. He is no longer his Highness the crown prince. From today, he is just his Highness. It has also been decided that the other four will be disinherited by their households. His Highness the crown prince…no, his Highness has broken the engagement with Anjelica, but the women engaged to the other four sent letters too.”

Jilk, Brad, Chris, and Greg…the four of them received the letters from their fiancees with a slightly sad expression.

They understood that the contents of the letter would be about their marriages being officially broken off.

Marie objected.

“This is too much for losing a duel! This is too cruel!”

Greg spoke to Marie in a slightly embarrassed manner. Everyone was oddly calm despite losing to Leon.

“This is fine. Marie, this is our resolve.”

“Huh?”

Chris began to speak about something they had hidden from Marie up until that point.

“We made a request to cancel our engagements a little while ago. Our households and fiancees asked us to reconsider, but it seems that they had second thoughts after this recent matter. We had decided to officially break off our engagements. However, this is good. With this, we can properly come to know each other.”

Marie was the only one that didn’t know, but everyone other than Julian was trying to keep it secret.

The result was disinheritance. They were no longer successors of their households.

Julian was the first in line to be the heir to the throne, but he was a prince that could no longer hope for it now that he had dropped considerably.

Even Jilk, who had been guaranteed a baron status after graduation, was now to be a knight. However, now he couldn’t be given an official position since he no longer had a territory he would manage.

The other three had similar situations.

With the recent event, the four couldn’t expect to be supported by their household.

Other than Julian, it seemed that they were judged solely on their utility value in inheriting a royal family. Royal families thought about making use of diplomatic marriages with those from other countries.

Julian hung his head.

“I cannot be by your side anymore, Marie. However, I will always pray for your happiness.”

Marie was attacked by a dizziness.

Marie’s misfortune was the real deal. Simply imitating the protagonist, Olivia, wouldn’t make her story come true.

Her current situation was the result of her outward charm and her experience from her previous life.

Greg laughed to give Julian a peace of mind.

“Hey, you can leave your share of protecting Marie to me. Besides, it’s not fun to lose like this. As an active adventurer, I’ll get revenge on that damn Leon. Maybe I should go on an adventurer to search for armor that’s a lost item?”

Chris made a small smile.

“Right. This may not be that bad.”

Brad seemed to slightly amused. He had an expression that looked quite relieved.

“We’re just four barons in name only. Well, with the four of us, we’ll be able to manage somehow.”

Jilk seemed a little sad.

“Your Highness, I’m sorry. Things wouldn’t have turned out like this if I had stopped him.”

Julian shook his head slightly.

He had faint smile, but seemed gloomy.

“You don’t need to apologize. As long as you guys protect Marie, then I’ll have a peace of mind wherever.”

Kyle put his hands behind his head.

“Everyone has been thinking a lot about you. How nice it must be, master.”

While making a smile as if that’s what she was thinking, Marie had plunged into darkness.

“E, err, right.”

(Huh? Don’t fool around, aren’t you being idiots?! Why would you all throw away your position and fortune like that?! I mean, you’re all without an occupation in the end now, right? How do you plan on living?! As adventurers? I would absolutely hate living meagerly like that! N, now that it has come to this, I need to think of something.)

Marie, who shifted to thinking pragmatically, felt ruined when seeing the boys laughing.

The government official began to depart now that all has been said and done.

“Well then, I’ll take my leave.”

While thinking that the amount of work she would have to do would be more than what the government official was doing, Marie felt that her ideal future was growing distant.

It was liking having four boyfriends who were going to be jobless in the future.

It was too different from the result she desired.

(Why did it turn out like this?! This is not the future I wanted!)

The floating island I discovered was better maintained compared to when I had enrolled in the academy.

The robots were doing their best regardless of whether it was day or night, and were in the process of completing the territory.

I thought that sooner or later, I would be independent here, and while the disordered kingdom was in a panic, I would be peacefully watching, but──

“Why do they have to follow me?”

When I came to see how the fields were doing as the robots were looking after them, Olivia and Anjelica followed me here as well.

Anjelica looked at the fields that had been lined up beautifully.

“Isn’t this nice? This is quite refreshing since opportunities like this are rare. After all, baron territories everywhere seem to be hectic while in the middle of development. Even coming to look would be a hindrance.”

My household was busy today due to my investment, and was in the midst of development all throughout. The waterways were being developed to improve the roads, and many various other ordeals were occurring.

The harbor was also being expanded, and was getting crowded as airships were coming and going nonstop.

Olivia looked at the fields with a serious expression.

She crouched down to look at the soil and our surroundings.

“How amazing. I’ve never seen land this beautiful despite people not being here.”

Anjelica tilted her head.

“Is that so? I thought that it was beautiful because people weren’t here, though.”

Olivia disagreed.

“It’s the opposite. The land can’t be this thoroughly maintained without there being people. Did robots do this? How amazing.”

I nodded. It was a pain to explain, so I just agreed with her while saying “How amazing indeed.”

Anjelica took a good look around.

“Huh? Something smells strange.”

It seems she was curious about the smell that was being carried by the wind.

“Aah, that──”

I guided the two towards where the scent was coming from.

There was an outdoor bath prepared on the floating island.

Only the structure had been set in place, letting Anjelica and Olivia looked at the open scenery.

The water was a little hot, which made it feel a little different from the usual bath. There wasn’t anything different to the water, but it felt like it stuck to the skin.

Olivia washed Anjelica’s hair after she let it down.

ph_mobuseka01_ill009

“Anjelica, your hair’s quite pretty, isn’t it.”

“…It’s because his Highness said that he liked long, pretty hair. I plan on having it be a bit shorter soon. Grooming it is a bother.”

Olivia rinsed off the bubbles with hot water.

“All things considered, this is a nice place.”

Anjelica looked at the scenery while praising the floating island Leon held. The setting sun was in sight, but it felt luxurious to be in an open bath while watching the scenery.

Olivia felt the same way.

“It seems that he discovered it before enrolling in the academy and it made into his own territory. He plans on being independent here in the future…sorry.”

“You’re fine. His struggles are because of me. I want him to be independent here. It’s irritating that my current self can only hope that things will work out, though.”

They didn’t know how Leon’s independence would result.

Anjelica could only pray that her father would handle things well.

“Even so, the number of adventurers who achieve a success this ideal are few. Anything more than this is in the realm of heroes and adventurers from legends. No, even if he doesn’t do anything else, he might even become a fabled adventurer.”

This time Anjelica washed Olivia’s hair.

“Is it that grand? I had a strong impression that adventurers were people who challenged dungeons…”

“Right. Perhaps that’s the image commoners have since the initial earnings are immense for them. However, rather than earning through dungeons, nobles like to venture with airships. To discover new lands and challenge unknown dungeons. Sometimes lost items from historic ruins will appear. It seems that my father and older brother were mischievous back then and went on reckless adventures, so they hold Leon in high regards.”

Anjelica looked at Olivia’s chest. Her own was big, but now that she thought about it, she remembered that Marie’s were small.

(Perhaps he disliked women with big chests? No, I should forget about this already.)

“Is it impressive that Leon discovered a new island with a small boat?”

Anjelica chuckled.

“Yeah, it’s impressive. With what he did, it wouldn’t have been surprising if he had died with just one small misstep. That was the biggest achievement made in several decades.”

The third son of a baron household had made a great success. That enough was immense.

“…I envy you.”

“Huh?”

Anjelica rinsed Olivia’s hair while speaking her true thoughts.

“You’re his lover, right? You’re always together with him, so I thought that you two were getting married. I wanted to be like you two.”

Olivia’s expression turned cloudy.

“…The difference between Leon and me is too great, I’m not suitable for him.”

Despite being in the advanced class, Olivia was a commoner. She couldn’t be a good match for Leon, who was a noble.

To Olivia, Leon was someone in an unreachable position.

Anjelica then remembered that.

“My bad. That’s right. You’re the honor student.”

Thereupon, Olivia spoke.

“I think…Leon likes you, Anjelica.”

“Why do you think so?”

Anjelica waited for Olivia’s response while washing off the bubbles.

“After all, he went that far to defend you. I’m envious of that. My heart aches a little thinking about whether I’ll get my turn.”

“…Liking me? That’s impossible. I’m a terrible woman. Otherwise, his Highness wouldn’t have abandoned me.”

The two soaked in the bathtub after washing themselves, then they gazed at the the beautiful sunset.

The two had entered the hot spring.

I didn’t want to miss this opportunity.

“…This is the moment I’ve been waiting for!”

My eyes were bloodshot from excitement.

The white steam and nostalgic scent made my soul tremble. This floating island was my field. I was free to do what I wanted.

“The long-awaited event has arrived!”

Luxon floated near me and spoke.

[It was nothing other than a success. Is grilled fish okay for a side dish?]

“Yeah, make it quick!”

On top of a table was the white steam coming from freshly cooked rice.

Since I had no miso yet, I made a soup with something that imitated it.

Grilled and salted river fish.

I’m sure that those two wouldn’t understand, but I’ve been looking forward to this the whole time…

“I’m shedding tears.”

[How nice. Feel free to worship me while chewing in delight.]

“I’ll forgive you just this once. Now then, shall we dine?”

When I tried eating it, the taste was similar but slightly different. However, it was still rice. After breaking the grilled fish into pieces with my chopsticks and placing it onto the rice, I wolfed it down.

“Ah~, this is bliss.”

[You do indeed look happy. Oh? It seems that an unknown airship is approaching the harbor.]

While I was eating, Luxon detected an airship approaching my household.

  1. Thanks for the chapter~~~

    Marie true character will be revealed sooner or later it like ticking time bomb.

        1. The prince and the other 4 loved mary lidke crazy, even though many problem will occur in the future because of mary they will never leave her side, contrary mary rejected them and all they said are “can’t be help, i’ll make you fall for me”. Justvmy opinion seeing the story and the setting so far.

    1. I thought he’d do the scummy “Peeking” event, but no! HE DID THE GODLY FOOD EVENT! A true gentleman. And since he’s alone, he can eat it ALL himself… Sneaky…

  2. Oh for fucks sake.

    I mean I know he had no interest in either of them, but seriously? Fucking seriously?

    Actually nevermind, I’d probably value food over thots anyday.

    1. I think Leon interested with Olivia. But he knows that Olivia supposed to be with the fallen crown prince. And while he must to find noble wife, making Olivia her wife is pretty hard since Olivia is a commoner and he was a noble.

      1. She’s supposed to be a saint no? It wouldn’t be strange if she had the same status as Anjelica or even higher. But it seems that Marie plans to steal this position too.

        But the main reason Leon is just avoiding both girls is because he wants a peaceful life, but we all know what happens when a MC wants to avoid getting in trouble right? And nothing beats women when it’s about getting in trouble 😀

    2. Oh definitly would be interested, but then again, there are problems. Olivia will become saint in the future, so going after her would be more than just troublesome, it would be outright life-threatening. Anjelica on the other hand is the daughter of the guy who united the noble fractions. Why would you put your hand conciously in an incinerator of politcal conflict? She might be “put aside” for now, but Leon is probably aware that her father might try to use her to get him into conflict, considering her father knows about his Armors power. He could not get his influence through being the Queens father, but having the strongest warrior being your son-in-law is also an assset of high value. Yes, Leon is lazy, but he isn’t dumb. Futhermore he is currently between a rock and a hard place, so he has to be carefull to reduce involvement.

  3. The two had entered the hot spring.

    I didn’t want to miss this opportunity.

    “…This is the moment I’ve been waiting for!”

    My eyes were bloodshot from excitement.

    LOL at first I think he want to peek. In the end he just miss eat japanese food huh…

    Thanks for the update

  4. We all knew deep down that there was no way Leon was so perverse as to peep on them in the bath. He’s too much of a gentleman, truly he belongs in the Otome game world as one of the heroes. I on the other hand, was totally infatuated by the scene of the two. GG.

    Thanks for the chapter!

  5. Thanks for the translation! Didn’t seem like Angelica’s father and brother liked Leon as much as she said but maybe that’s why his dream of escaping marriage hell is doomed to fail. Or at least if what some other comments on upcoming events is true. Guess we’ll find out. Hopefully those two are wise enough not to comment about how well managed his territory is by robots. Otherwise everyone up to and including the crown would want either the robots or the technology to build them so could have 24/7 workers that don’t get tired, don’t need to be paid, never get sick or take vacations, and work night and day. Be funny if the girls come upon him eating and not only want to try some too, but feel miffed that he didn’t try to peek on them. Besides, the girls would probably enjoy and find it more restful on Leon’s territory as they’re not likely to run into Zola or anyone else and being able to use a hot spring to soak and relax in without worrying about peekers. Speaking of Zola 10 to 1 she’s on the ship wanting huge quantities of money due to Leon’s actions causing so much trouble for “her” or some other nonsense. That or a royal messenger bringing a royal edict stating that not only are his dreams of losing his title and escaping marriage hell in vain but now gets to pay higher taxes and have a higher bar for acceptable marriage candidates. Fortunately Luxon and the girls will be there to take care of him until the shock wears off in a week or two.

    Btw, the sentence
    “It seems that he discovered it before enrolling in the academy and it made into his own territory.
    should be “It seems that he discovered it before enrolling in the academy and made it into his own territory.

    1. Can anyone explain how being disinherited changes Julian from his Highness the Prince to just his Highness? Also, disinherited is another way of saying disowned, right? Finally, what does being disinherited mean for the capture targets? Are they all commoners now, still have their rank but no territory or family of their own anymore, and is their financial situation basically whatever money was left in their personal accounts and whatever personal items can hock along with whatever clothes took to school?

      1. It means Julian will not become the next king, nor (I assume) get any other inheritance upon his father’s death. He’s still a prince, since he’s the king’s son, but he won’t get any material support from the royal house anymore. The others are in a similar situation: they have some status, in principle, as nobles, but they’re cut off from their families, won’t inherit or get any material support anymore. The naïve fools have no idea how hard it is to make a living without the power of an established, more or less wealthy house backing them. They’re in for a rude awakening. Marie may have been short-sighted, but at least she has enough life experience to know what’s coming, hence she’s panicking now.

      2. They got cut off from the lands and titles that they were going to inherit, but maintain their standings as the children of royalty or nobility. As a royal, that standing means quite a lot. The baron’s son still has an inside track on being a knight.

        Think of primogenitor, the first son is In line to inherit, but the second son is a still the child of a noble.

        In other words, the Five losers were disinherited, but not disowned or banished.

      3. yes, disinheritance = disowned, thus the now ex-prince by abdicating to his rights as a ruler, loses his power and is thus called just his Highness, because his father is still the king.
        Now for the rest, anything they have already in their name is their, the rest still belongs to their families.
        No territory equal being at most a knight, since territory equal to power.

      4. Actually, he’s now his highness the prince instead of his Highness the crown prince. The crown prince is the one to become the next king but since he is no long the crown prince, he’ll stay a prince unless all the other candidates die (I think).

  6. As least we know Anjelica’s chest wasn’t the problem considering that position was changeable with Oliva. That or the Prince and friends prefer extremes.

  7. Do they have radios or some form of long distance communication between ships, docks, etc.? Since they have Sky Pirates and battles all over I doubt anyone would let an unfamiliar ship just come over and dock much less fly around the territory without some form of identification indicating not a hostile ship. Be funny if Leon wants Luxon to destroy it for interrupting his fist Japanese like meal in years. Or to attack in full force when finds out Zola is on it. Then again with his luck it might be other explorers trying to jump his claim, sky pirates, or a foreign nation trying to annex his territory. That or a tax collector.

    1. They have loudspeakers on ships. Don’t recall if they had anything more sophisticated, aside from Luxion, of course.

    2. Given the technical level displayed, light signalling or flags are more likely. People have been developing means to communicate from ship to shore for as long as we’ve had boats. The fact that the island doesn’t have a staffed harbor might be sufficient excuse to ignore docking rules, however.

      1. Watching things explode is awesome!!

        MEGUMIN DO YOUR THING!!

        EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!

  8. Honestly I thought that those guys were going to be disinherited even if they hadn’t lost to Leon, I mean losing to Leon did help their families to make the decision but what kind of noble household would accept 4 important nobles all marring one single nobody? she is short sighted like that but she is going to blame everything on Leon anyway…….

    1. Seems in the game Olivia was able to prevent it due to personality, skill, or whatever makes her the Saint which Marie wasn’t able to due to being a standin. Speaking of Marie, isn’t her family going to disinherit her or hand down some kind of punishment? After all, they’re probably getting some heat from the royal famiily along with the other capture targets’ families for raising a daughter who’s pursuing not only five guys at the same time, but much higher ranked ones who already had arranged fiances set years ago. Even if the former fiances are willing to bite the bullet for the sake of their former spouses happiness, their families certainly aren’t going to take it lying down if for no other reason than to avoid looking weak and able to be taken advantage of.

  9. I feel like it would be so much more interesting if Marie felt even the least bit apologetic for ruining their lives and learning her meddling actually has consequences.

  10. What? He’s not going to peek? What kind of man is he?! Is he really a man?! I cant beleive he chose food over naked smooth maiden bodies. Kuh! Im so jealous! Anyway, thanks for updating daily…thanks thanks.
    I think i saw a novel in the announcement, “i was hit by a truck and reincarnated to another world, but the truck followed me there” or something like that. Is this true? Iff it is, that’ll be good to read.

    1. I think her marriage partner will have to have a really high noble rank for everyone else in the country to accept someone marrying saints.. which leon dont have.

        1. Considering the capture targets included a few earls Leon would just need to somehow get raised to the rank of earl or higher to qualify to marry Olivia in terms of rank after she becomes the country’s Saint. Although be nice if what she had to do or accomplish to earn that title would be told. Only thing know about rank Saint is that it’s very high, seems to only have one holder, and that Olivia earns it within a few years. But how much of the prince and co. contribute to her earning the title? Considering they’re all lovestruck over Marie it seems Leon is the only one in a position to help her out.

      1. Why? Reading the novels raw is sort of awesome. But the best part if you understood it! I already am reading raws but too much busy things IRL.

  11. And here I was thinking Leon would have been making full use of his youth.

    I mean, come on! The war drums were beating! And no one would have been able to stop you!

  12. Those poor boys. 😩 They don’t know what they’re in right now.

    Thank the author for not making a peeking scene, that would lower Leon’s likeability by several levels in my book.

  13. Thanks for the chapter

    Wow that’s a harsh punishment for stupidity, they get disowned? So there’s now 4 big noble house without a successor (i assume), 5 pissed off fiancee house (i assume), and throne without successor. So Leon must hurry to pick a side.

    1. The houses only lost the most direct successor. There’s still any younger brothers and nephews who were next in line as spares. Then there’s having a daughter’s husband marry into the family. After all, Truck-san could send the heir to another world at any moment so precautions have been made.

  14. Why sell yourself so low Olivia? Didn’t he said that he will withdraw from nobility and live independently? So he’s still within your reach!

    And damn that feels good, now Marie will have a future where she and 4 of them live in alleys XD

  15. I laughed out loud when I read the part with the idiots. Marie got what she just wanted haha! XD

    Olivia confirmed to have feelings for Leon. Yay! Also I hope this isn’t one of those stories where they drag the romance for so long. I hope we get to see Leon’s relationship with the two develop

      1. It’s a messenger with a wedding invitation for the princess who’s next in line for the throne. And attendance is mandatory because, surprise, he’s the groom! Granted the princess is in her late 30s, 300 pounds overweight, a fujoshi, has over a dozen personal servants she cycles through and a rotten personality that makes all the advance class girls from Baron to Earl look like sweet Girl Scouts but that’s how spoiled royalty is suppose to be!

        That, or Zola being a selfish leech again, messenger with response to his offer to lose rank and knighthood, or someone completely new. Maybe it’ll be an androgynous guy who turns out to be a girl who’s really good with weapons and physical activity but cross-dresses so can do things she likes. And just to really throw things out of whack she’ll turn out to be the beloved princess of a foreign country trying to escape an arranged marriage.
