The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs

The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs v2 Chapter 2 Part 3

Now that the first day of the school festival had ended, I sat down on the bed in my room.

Daniel, Raymond, and I had made a celebratory party for the success of the first day.

It was just us since Livia and Anjie had soon left back to their dorms.

As I was pondering, Luxon appeared in front of me.

“What do you want?”

[Those who are unfaithful are the worst.]

“What are you saying?”

[Those were words you yourself had said before. Now then, think back upon today’s behavior. I heard you were hitting on the queen, Master. Wasn’t your unfaithfulness a shameful display?]

“──That’s not it. I just couldn’t hold back my emotions.”

[Each of those words you had said really came back to bite you. Even I feel moved at how admirable it was. How about carrying a mirror?]

“No wait, I mean, if I was asked whether or not it was possible for me to get on with her, then the answer would be yes, right?!”

[This is the queen we’re talking about. If asked, you’re supposed to answer with a no.]

This AI really couldn’t understand my feelings with its sound arguments and whatnot.

[To start with, when the queen talked about memories at the academy, I’m confident that she was talking about attending a school festival with someone. Then you suddenly started hitting on her──I thought you were out of your mind. Ah, excuse my discourtesy. Perhaps that was your true character from the beginning.]

“You’re being stupid. There’s no reason for the academy to exist other than for marriage. When she said she wanted memories, she meant that she wanted to get hit on. No, wait. If she wanted to attend the school festival together──perhaps she wanted a date? I overlooked that. Anyways, wouldn’t you agree that the reason for the academy’s existence is for marriage?”

[That’s only for the boys. The academy is a place to learn.]

“Oh really?! I knew that from the beginning!”

[That’s a relief. Do strive to study from now on.]

“That won’t do. I can’t abandon my marriage-searching.”

[You didn’t give up searching for marriage? It would be bad if you did give up, wouldn’t it.]

“I’m a man with an unyielding fighting spirit, even if I don’t like what I have to do.”

I would have given up if I could, but no matter how tough I acted, I had to keep up with societal expectations. The trouble was that this problem wasn’t just mine alone. Not just me, but my family was also being talked about behind their backs. That was the unpleasant part. I didn’t want to cause trouble to my parents, my older brother, or my younger brother.

And the others? There were others? An older sister? A younger sister? I don’t know anyone like that.

[It’s not about what you say, it’s about how you say it, I suppose.]

As I continued this absurd conversation with Luxon, we swiftly began to talk about the main issue at hand.

[Master, are you really going to help that girl?]

I stared up into the ceiling.

“There will be a few consecutive days off once the school festival ends. I plan to help her out then.”

[There is no reason for you to help, Master.]

I thought that there weren’t any.

However, it was a request that had been made formally.

Furthermore, Livia had introduced her──meaning that she was acting as the agent. Her doing this really was foul play, but it meant that to any bystander, Livia was in charge of Cara’s request, and that she turned to me as a middleman.

In other words, the people around us would have seen the situation as Cara asking for help, Livia accepting it, and referring me to it.

Livia didn’t even know the contents of the matter.

If I refused, it meant that Livia wouldn’t be able to settle the request she received. It would also have made me seem like a person who wouldn’t accept a request from an acquaintance.

In other words, Livia and I had been dragged into Cara’s affairs.

However, in this case, it would have been fine even if I did reject.

It was foul play, after all. There was no sense of duty in having to help someone like this.

I could reject it, and I didn’t want to help, but I couldn’t afford not to lend my assistance.

Cara’s request was about the suppression of sky pirates.

The suppression of sky pirates was work that nobles would do.

Furthermore, there was the matter of the sky pirates themselves.

[Is it about the territory the sky pirates are causing distress to? Shouldn’t it be something to ask of the royal palace rather than you, Master?]

“That’s right. In cases like these, appealing to the royal palace would be the proper choice. However, these sky pirates hold an indispensable item for the protagonist.”

[You have to participate due to a game-like reason?]

“In order for Livia, the protagonist, to display her talents as a saint, she needs three items. Before long, we’ll need to collect two of them. One of them belongs to the sky pirates, so I need to suppress them and retrieve it.”

One of the items was the “Holy Bracelet” that was hidden within the dungeon in the royal capital.

The sky pirates, who Cara requested the suppression of, held the “Holy Necklace.”

The last one was managed by a temple belonging to the largest religion in the kingdom──the “Saint’s Cane.”

It was necessary for Livia to possess these three items in order to become a saint. Once she was recognized as a saint by the temple, the cane would automatically come into her hands.

The other two needed to be gathered through our efforts.

Furthermore, the three items were necessary for greatly raising Livia’s abilities.

“The sky pirate event was originally supposed to be for the second year, though.”

Originally, the sky pirate event was supposed to appear during the second year of the academy, at the middle of the climax.

In order to subjugate the sky pirates who appeared at the territory airspace of a certain earl household, the protagonist had to rely on the power of Julian and the others.

This was also a large crossroad where the player’s route would be finalized, determined by who would help.

[They can’t rely on the regular army of the kingdom? The Wein household are semi-barons, but they should be under the guardianship of an earl household, right?]

“Ah, there are a couple of reasons for that. As a matter of fact, that household is of Brad’s former fiancee. This request is also from the the daughter of that earl household. Cara is one of her followers.”

[A woman like Anjelica?]

“No, a heap of trash.”

Even for me, a pile of trash for a character, she was unsightly when getting to know her.

It would be futile to expect that she would be like Anjie, someone who wasn’t bad.

Their household rose into the ranks of an earl, and as a matter of fact, was the earl household that got involved with the sky pirates.

This was the groundwork for a war that would occur at the final stages of the game.

They would do bad things together with thieves.

When talking about it, Luxon asked me a question.

[Master, you seem to give priority to the progression of the game. You do take some consideration towards benefits to gain in real life, but what do you think about these circumstances?]

“Julian and the others are unreliable, so I have to be the one to retrieve the item. At this rate, things will be bad once the war happens.”

Right, things would get bad.

If Livia didn’t become a saint, then even though I had Luxon, I would still have to flee from the continent.

It wasn’t just a matter of winning or losing.

[Why did Cara──no, the earl daughter ask you for the subjugation?]

“It’s a trap, a grand ol’ trap. I already said it before, she’s a heap of trash, even for me. It made me laugh in the game when seeing how much of a trash pile she was.”

At any rate, she was angry about the protagonist entering the academy, so she planned to lure her into the suppression of the sky pirates. I never thought that this storyline would reach me.

Amongst the people that the daughter of the earl household looked down on, she was especially displeased with the protagonist being pampered, at least that was how it was according to the game.

Just what in the world had I done to incur the anger of that woman?

[Master, at this rate, are you going to be become Olivia’s partner?]

“Me? It can’t happen. I’m just a mob, after all.”

Luxon only replied with [Is that so?] towards what I had said.

[Is what you’re doing really okay? Based on what I heard, I think this is a matter that Olivia should settle. It would be better to have the saint herself collect the equipment, right?]

“Since I’m the one that has you, wouldn’t it be unreasonable to have the current Livia do it? That being the case, it would be better if I did it. This is more efficient.”

[You’re overprotective, aren’t you Master?]

After saying that, Luxon turned silent.

    1. What do you mean “help Leon with common sense”? Leon know the story plot, has end-game equipment, and has the will to solve this on his own, so Olivia don’t have to face danger that come too early. Isn’t common sense to protect your heroine?

        1. Love how people use “Common Sense” as if it means being moral, or just in some way. all Common sense is, is the common reactions and thoughts that people would have; example, if 51% of the people would have proposed to the queen, then it would have been common sense that you propose to the queen. In other worlds Leon, as in going back on what he had said, or having double standards (wanting others to be one way, yet acting another for himself) is something that is rather apparent in this world. leading that to actually be the common sense. Do you really want him to lecture him into becoming like everyone else at this academy?

        1. Im going to assume those are either fake that leon tricked her into getting or she stole them from leon and Olivia

      1. Semi spoiler

        Spoiler

        Check the scene in the volume 2 b/w illustration, the last one you wil see that marie have a cane on her side

    1. I call it a poetic justice. I mean, she did steal the protagonist’s position and went the whole reverse-harem route. And now she’s stuck with those guys even though they became useless.

  1. Thanks for the chap~

    I thought the fastest release was a day. But I was wrong huh?
    Now then, Leon. GET A HINT!
    He always thought of the progression of the game but, do you realize that you destroyed the plot itself. Okay, sorry, not just you but the other one too *wink to fake protag*

  2. That’s for the chapter… but isn’t this too fast!? Considering the name of the site, this feels like false advertising.

    Well, Leon is too overprotective of Olivia. It’s like he’s raising the flag he’s been trying to avoid?

    1. If i remember well, he did not have the health magic that is the trade mark of the saint, like olivia and marie had.

  3. “If I suddenly just stop posting and vanish without a trace, I probably died”, well at least we know what happen. Oh and i really like the header text, its make me giggle

  4. Well, I looked at the illustrations and spoiled this arc for myself. Damn… This isn’t going to go how you expect it, Leon. That should be obvious just from the fact that another girl took the Heroine’s place.

  5. Thanks for the chapter i wonder what Maria will do when she finds out she lost the item its also possible that she will try and get it around the same time leon goes to get it while i find this unlikely because shes probably still waiting for the event to come to her it would be interesting seeing what happens and since she seems to only have a basic knowledge of the game world itself and the fact that she’s probably forgotten most of the events and most likely focused on remembering how to get all the harem members but its also possible that she wrote down everything in a book which could explain how she remembered where when and how to capture julian and the other targets

    1. Spoiler
      Wait according to the illustration, does that mean the sister gets the saints bracelet, necklace and cane?

  6. Now is the time of the real game event! Although getting luxon and anjie confrontation are also an event, this one is the real event since the game is rpg XD
    Anyway thanks for the chapter ya~

  7. Holy f-! Being overprotective means he like her. Why not just admit. Or his feelings are still shallow andd not deep enough?

    Spoiler
    i saw the illustrations, and i’m really looking forward to the events [spoiler] no crubstomp yet?

    [/spoiler]

    1. Dude don’t forget that Leon didn’t try to do anything to her because they are the main character that would protect the world so don’t want to make mistakes like his sister who stolen her position.

      1. Unfortunately, Leon is doing the exact same thing Maria did and stealing Olivia’s events in the name of protection.

        He should at least bring her along to power level her up.

        At this rate Olivia is seriously going to be underleveled when the boss battles start coming in.

          1. But there still have characters growth, i remember Leon said it will harder for him to fight 5 ranger if they in 3rd year. But he just make them lose inheritance meaning weaker gear from now on.

            And Olivia supposed to be strong independent woman but because Leon pamper and overprotective to her, she become…i don’t want to be rude but… like a pet.

            1. Dude… Remember her evaluation from both Leon and Marie. She’s way too much of a clumsy airhead. With said head full of flowers.

        1. No, you misunderstood. In the current event sequence Olivia is playing the same role she did in the game. The difference is that Leon is taking the place of her normal capture targets. Leon is in fact playing as close to the normal plot as current circumstances allow.

    2. Yeah Leon just needed to stop pretending to watch from sideline. He already get the strongest gear and a love of heroine/villaness he can’t denied the story will revolve around him now.

  8. I hope that the author won’t make the same mistake like he did in Seven. That is the main char didn’t care about the relationship between his girls! In Seven we saw that when Novem and Miranda had a confict Mr.Lyle “solve” it by letting them kill each other after made sure that they couldn’t die!
    And in this Leon clearly saw through the problem that just poped up between Livia and Anjie, but he didn’t show any intention to help them at all!!! I hope it the author won’t let the girls solve it themselve, because this that very often in Seven, to the point that after he showed us Maria or any girls other than Monica have been in love with Lyle, I was like “Huh? Why? When? How? Eh???????” I mean Lyle didn’t do anything to trigger most of the girls flag for them to deeply in love with him ( maybe he did some but for me, it wasn’t enough) and don’t bring Vera here, because the author clearly “forced” her to be in love with him by some pages of diary!!!

    1. Lyle’s character was very different in several ways, some of which helped to explain his timid reaction to the infighting.

      Spoiler
      His personality was only a handful of years old. He was a small child in the body of a teenager. If that weren’t enough, he was already devoted to a single girl from the very beginning. The problem there was the fact that the girl he was moonstruck with was hellbent on building his political power through a web of marriages.

  9. Mary’s once said something about getting a special item, I think she got the bracelet, while Lívia will have the necklace and they will both rush to the temple to get the cane, which will reject Mary due to her corrupt heart, them Mary will begin to complain how everything is unfair and force a fight

  10. the comment section longer than story, :v omg i’m really happy when the page finished loading and “yay long chapter”, then i found the story just it’s 1/3 of the page, but i’m still thankfull for u’r work, and happy holiday.

    1. Oh hell… I finished reading the whole chapter just now. This chapter takes place in the room, just Leon’s conversation with Luxon.

      But hoooooly shit, things are coming fast. The events that should have occured on the second school year just came early to Leon’s doorstep.

      You guys are correct. The relationship between Livia and Angie is making us sad… but I remember the illustration of them both sleeping together. Maybe they will come to terms and reconcile ? (Yuri vibe intensifies)

      About the sacred items that Leon wants to retrieve, are they really shown with Marie in the picture ? I bet that was in her dreams. Hehehe…

      The pirates are one thing, the war is getting closer too. That will be the time when all the girls in the academy (and the middle nobles) turns useless. Time for Olivia to shine and Leon must learn to be less protective of her.

  11. Thanks for the chapter! Also the previous one!!

    Good to see that you did take a breather in updating chapters its always nice to know that people like you take care of yourself. Having to see two chaps when i use my internet after three days is nice but also worried me that you pushed yourself again, but the update times are different so nothing to worry myself too much also its nice to see that you probably take note of my comment, love the work you make.

    Leacher here~
    Signing off~

  12. According to the illustration…. I don’t think his plan to make her a saint is going to go well as there is another girl who knows about the game and wants to take the place of the protagonist….

  13. Really?
    There is someone who wants become the protagonist, and AFTER months you remember that there are fundamental objects for Olivia (the one you promised to help) and try to find them …
    these objects will surely end up in marie’s hands because of Leon’s laziness…
