The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs

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

“Nothing will come out of revenge. What’s important is to──”

“As if you know what you’re talking about! Nothing will come of it? So what? What’s wrong with that?!”

“Aaaah! I’m sorry!”

When hearing Marie’s forced words, Clarice lost her temper. That was natural. Anyone would lose their mind when hearing the one who stole their fiance say that.

Anjie also glared at Marie with hatred.

However, Julian came out to stand in the way between the two.

“Enough already. Don’t look at Marie like that, Anjelica.”

“──My apologies, your Highness.”

Once Anjie apologized, Julian turned towards Clarice.

This guy was emitting an aura of royalty, to the point that I was envious of it.

“Clarice. I understand if you won’t forgive Jilk. However, I request that you stop this kind of conduct.”

Clarice, casting her eyes downward while making an eerie smile, looked a bit strange.

“──So that’s what you’re going to say, your Highness? Do you know how many people you’re making unhappy for the sake of just one woman? It’s not just Anjelica. Do you know what people have been saying behind the backs of the other fiancees and me? You wouldn’t know. There’s no way any of you would know.”

There were indeed people made unhappy by Marie’s aim for a reverse harem.

It seemed that the world of an otome game really is cruel.

While I was thinking about it, Julian seemed to have a sorrowful face.

“I know that we don’t have the right to say anything. However, that doesn’t mean you can keep doing this. You won’t better yourself this way.”

I then spoke out my thoughts.

“Those are about the words I would expect from an ikemen. It’s quite something to hear the persuasion of a boy who had been seduced by Marie to throw away his fiancee. After all, your dignity is what’s most important for you.”

“Leon, no! You can’t say things like that! No!”

Livia looked cute when she said “No!” while making a finger-wagging gesture. Normally, this was reserved for deviants like Marie, but I didn’t mind being on the receiving end since there was a certain charm to it.

The protagonist’s charm was tremendous.

Like that, Julian glared at me once he heard what I had said.

I decided to close my mouth and look the other way.

Clarice turned around.

“If you appear in the next match, we’ll crush you. Even if you don’t show up, we’ll obliterate your substitute. I’ll teach you all a lesson. ──I will never forgive you.”

Clarice left while chuckling.

──The mood in the medical office was at its worst.

I sighed.

“Now it seems like there won’t be substitute for the next race. Nobody would want to take that role.”

Once I said that, Jilk tried getting up with his injured body.

“──Gah!”

“Jilk, stop!”

Julian held him down onto the bed, but it seemed that Jilk intended to participate.

“Release me, your Highness. Nobody will get hurt if I go. It’s the obvious choice to take.”

The most obvious choice would’ve been for them to not have broken off their engagements. There was no use crying over spilled milk, but I wanted to complain.

There was originally supposed to be some kind of happy ending where Livia decided which of the five capture targets to go along with.

Now that the five were disinherited, they had little supporters. I couldn’t predict what would happen in the future.

I could only worry about the future of this otome game.

Before I knew it, the first-year class executive committee members were staring at me.

“H, hey, what about Baltfault?”

“His ability just barely qualifies for a being a participant, right?”

“If someone’s getting beaten up, wouldn’t it be better for it to happen to this guy than to Jilk?”

When a plethora of faces glared at me within the medical office, Anjie stepped forward as if to protect me.

“Don’t try to make Leon participate. Do you really expect to have him go after hearing about what’s going to happen? I’m sorry, but the first-year students will just have to withdraw.”

When hearing that, Marie raised her voice. She was quite panicked.

“Wait! What about the prize money?!”

Anjie glared at Marie with a look that could kill someone.

“What about it? Do you really want to injure more people just for it?”

I started feeling relieved after Anjie gave a sound argument.

I didn’t intend to participate, but if I was forced onto there, the venue would definitely get excited wanting to see me get beat up.

I definitely wasn’t participating.

──However…

“B, but, there’s the matter of your reputation, Anjelica.”

“Right. It would be a problem if the class representative didn’t prepare a substitute.”

“Anyone’s fine, just get someone up there.”

While I was tilting my head, Marie tried to make me participate. This person was kind of shameless.

It irritated me to remember about my sisters from this life and my younger sister from my previous one.

“R, right! If you don’t participate, then that woman over there will be in trouble! Right, Julian?!”

“O, oh, right. Anjelica is the class representative for the first-year students, after all. If she can’t prepare a substitute, it will put her ability into question or otherwise affect her reputation.”

When I looked at Anjie, she made a worried smile.

“Don’t worry about me. There’s no need for you to get hurt. I can’t inconvenience you any more than I already have.”

──That was a bit of a problem for me, though!

First off, why was it Anjie’s responsibility to find a substitute? Besides, if it was someone who was supposed to represent the class, then wasn’t Julian fine?

If her reputation was on the line, then no matter how many times I fell down, it still wouldn’t have bothered me.

At any rate, it was a problem if Anjie’s reputation dropped.

Anjie would end up getting in trouble in an effort to protect me! I couldn’t allow that!

After all, I owed Anjie’s papa a favor!

Even though I picked a fight with Julian, who was the crown prince at the time, I was alright since Anjie’s papa protected me.

Thanks to that, there was the bizarre result of being promoted, though. Leaving that aside, from the point of view of Anjie’s papa, his daughter’s reputation had been wounded due to what I did.

So what if I did as Anjie said? He would definitely be enraged. He’d likely resent me.

“──I’ll participate.”

“Huh?”

Livia was surprised.

Anjie was wide-eyed.

“Leon, if you’re being sympathetic──”

“It’s not sympathy! Go through with the procedures right away. Afterwards, prepare a bike.”

Once I said that, someone from the executive committee said “Alright. I’ll let everyone know~,” while leaving the medical office.

I wondered if they were going to tell everyone that I was about to get beat up.

“Leon, aren’t you being rash?”

Livia’s face of concern was radiant. However, it would’ve been bad if I didn’t participate.

“Rash? Nonsense. This is about pride!”

Anjie had a troubled expression, and seemed like she wanted to stop me from participating.

“Y, you can’t. Many of Clarice’s followers excel in handling airbikes. Last year’s prize winner was a boy who happened to be one of her followers. They’re people who play rough and do whatever they can if they feel like it.”

“Even so, there are times when one must act!”

Anjie and Livia seemed to have given up on stopping me after seeing my spirit.

“Leon──i, if you’re going that far, then there’s not much we can say anymore. I’ll be praying for your victory.”

“I, I’ll also cheer for you! I’ll be cheering you on, Leon!”

Thank you. Thank you all so much!

After all, with this, Anjie’s papa wouldn’t get angry.

If he got mad, I would’ve been dead.

Marie was delighted.

“If you’re up, then there’s no problem. I’d be glad even if you lose. And if you win, the prize money is mine. Yup, this is okay!”

──I might have been forgiven if I had driven my fist into her face right then and there. It was certainly thanks to Jilk that I was boosted up to the final race. However, I wouldn’t forgive them if they planned on taking all of the prize money.

When Jilk looked at me, he casted his eyes downward while seeming annoyed.

Did he hate me? I hated him too! I loathed him!

“──It seems that it’s up to you now.”

“Go ahead and cry tears of joy, you sly green chap. Consider this a debt.”

I made a slight smile while saying so.

“This will likely turn out to be a huge debt.”

“I’m fine with it, since I’ll repay it soon enough.”

I left the medical office in order to prepare an airbike for my participation.

“Luxon──we’ve got work to do.”

[Alright, Master.]

  1. My god, marie really is annoying to a whole new level.
    I knew she was rotten to the core, but couldn’t she at least try to hide it

    1. The more annoying thing is that those love-struck ikemens can’t see that rotten to the core personality obviously showing.

        1. She did get carried away far too easily which in this regard similar to the mc Leon. The only difference between them is Leon always get caught up to problems resulting from his poor choice (including firsthand experience to the risk being boys of fantasy otome game world) while this little girl were never directly has to face consequences of her own doing.

          Then again she never learn where she did wrong even in her own previous life where she ended up isolated from even her own family. Where she rather blamed her own brother who have actually sheltered and pampered her while still alive.

      1. Naw, at her core Shannon never really wanted to hurt anyone. She used her eyes to turn Miranda into her ideal sister because she was betrayed by everyone else in her life. It was the defensive reaction of a sheltered, childish girl.

        Marie on the other hand displays a clear lack of empathy. She aggressively hurt and manipulated people to secure her goals. When we saw from her perspective there wasn’t even a hint of remorse. She even blamed her dead brother for her own actions against him; built up a hatred that endured into her new life. Even now she is openly gloating about how Leon will either get hurt or earn her money.

        1. She makes light of everything that’s for sure and certainly the new normal where it’s common for girl abusing boys without remorse reinforce her idea that she never been in the wrong. I think sooner or later she will inevitably run out of luck and the consequences directly.

  2. Wait WTF, why does Marie still get the prize money if he wins. WHY?!??!
    There is absolutely no reason!
    Julian would have given her the prize money, but there is no reason Leon should!

    1. Probably because Leon is just the substitute, the titular racer is Jilk, and we know that Jilk money is Marie money

        1. He is acting as a substitute, in behalf of Jilk, same as what happened during the duel, with Leon being Anjie representative, but is clear that Leon will likely profit more, since im sure they wont be so shameless as to not give him a cut of the prize money and he will bet on himself once again with lots of money

  3. Thank you so much for the translation. Are you on fire? Dont push ur self too much, its holiday season, get some rest 🙂

  4. Why do all the events he get pulled in seem to be for a contrived reason? Also how the heck can Mary take HIS proze money if he wins?

    1. The author has written Leon to be purely reactive, which is a poor trait for a protagonist. It is even more odd when you consider their other works, which boast highly proactive leads.

      1. Yeah it kind of annoying how he always on receiving end. We know he is a lazy person but at this point, he just annoying tsundere that goes with the flow.

        1. A bad tsundere at that. I like Harold from Death Flag a lot more. Leon is just treated like a tsundere when he’s more of a pushover that tries to justify his manipulated actions. Especially in this situation since it’s really forced.

  5. Despite being low-ranked, Leon is still a noble and he understands how noble society works. If he doesn’t make a move, he’ll get crushed by his own ally.

  6. The author really knows how to leave a bad after-taste in the mouth, I love him for creating such annoying characters because now I can hate them and no one will judge~ Thanks for the chapter

    1. Wasn’t Leon cancelled his bet when he hear from Luxon Jilk won’t be able to continue? So the only left with biggest bet would be Marie, i think.

      1. Prize money for winning race will be Jilk’s, who will give it to Marie, even if Leon wins since Jilk is official entrant while Leon is a substitute. Don’t know if Leon entitled to any or only what Jilk offers on own.

  7. the other party will do anything to win right? maybe they’ll kidnap anjie or livia and make leon drop the race? well, even if they do, Luxon-kun will definitely deal with them (it’s not a crime if no one can see it) something like that.
    thanks for the chap.
    honestly, if i were leon, my fist would’ve pulverized the sl*t’s face hundred- no, thousand times.
    and, i wonder what equipments will they prepare against them. maybe a missle launcher, gatling gun, machine gun, tear gas, lasur beam, or maybe c4. Nuke would be better.

  8. Thanks for the chapter.

    Don’t worry guys. This is Leon we are talking about. I am sure he is using his previous trick aka make a bet to himself to win much more than the prize money while satiate our hate towards the students

  9. Soo… Leon being the somewhat shady character he is, I expect he’s going to throw the race. Maybe aim for second place or something along those lines.

    The reason I suspect that is it would allow him to completely ruin the betting pool and deny Marie any claim to the victor’s prize.

    1. I hope he take the first place with a very large margin and stop just before the finish like a Boss while he bet his money for the winner. With that, he still got his pride and even if Marie make a bet or want his prize, she won’t get anything.

  10. Thanks for the chapter, you have been on fire with all those releases in a short period of time. For now, get some wel deserved rest and enjoy the holydays.

  11. i really hope Marie change bet on Leon to others people and Leon win the race, then Marie lose big ????

    anyway thanks for the chapter!

  12. Is can see the future…..
    Leon is on “trail brazing ghost’s riding air bike”……….. Was it long?, cause,that’s what I feel, I guess?~~

  13. And also, I feel this odd and abnormal reason….that I, shipping MarieXLeon…….
    The title, “the bloodless bro/sis” Or “100% Legal couple”… And it feels nothing but all crap, but alot more interesting… Why was that?

    1. well in

      Spoiler
      Marie not Virgin i think? well i not sure about virgin in LN because i used google translates for read WN. but in latest Luxon has suggest to Leon make child with Marie because of gene of old mankind

      well i not sure what i talking about

      1. Spoiler
        Basically Luxon found that same as Leon, Marie has genes from old humans, and for that reason, he wants Leon to have Marie give birth to a child that will have stronger old human genes, but from having Kyle and the others, I highly doubt she is virgin, remember when they bought her Kyle, she was glad and said something like “Great, now i can have unprotected sex without minding contraceptives” and with what happened in library, Leon and Livia left while Marie and Brad were still kissing but that doesnt means they didnt do anything else

  14. I must’ve been in a coma or amnesia. I didn’t realize that there are two chapters out in the past 2 days. What a shame !

    Ah … what’s my name ? Who am I ??

    Oh, thank you for the chapters Aniki.
    I wish you a happy holiday. Take a rest and enjoy your days off. In the mean time, I will read both chapters and catch up… and maybe then I’ll remember my identity
    (was I a fox? A dolphin perhaps? Ugh… headache)

  15. Yeah, I’m not sure how Marie gets any prize money unless she is referring to a bet she has placed on the first years winning…

    If it’s a bet I hope Luxon makes the MC’s bike look so ratty that Marie and the others decide to bet against him in the end 😛

  16. I’m unsure why Marie would recieve any of the prize money? Jilk being disqualified from an injury would mean he lost out on it and his Substitute would get the money, right?

    Also, Leon is being way too reactive and not proactive enough. He’s just getting angry for being swept into others pace and not doing anything about it.

  17. Thanks for the translation! Seems odd that Marie is only one worrying about money in her group. With Luxon’s modifications looks like Leon is going to wipe the other racers off the floor and cause another commotion. Good that Angie is getting better at holding temperature. Considering how spoiled most of the noble girls are the other former fiances are probably going to raise a ruckus against their former partners as well at some point.

  18. Errr… not sure if any of you guys have any ideals about Leon vehicles…
    I prefer his bike is the hovering version of Nod Attack Bike, they’re fast, agile & armed…
    Or just Nod Venom to solve the problem…
    Anyway, thanks 4 pumping out chap almost daily… but please slow down a bit will ya~~?
    :3

  19. Is that airbike going to have something for protection or some rather “too scientific” modifications??
    What are you waiting for?? Just punch that girl in the face!!! It doesn’t matter now… but just take the money!!!
