The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs

The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs v2 Chapter 8 Part 2

It was the next morning.

The airship would depart at noon, but I had some free time until then, so I went sightseeing.

At any rate, it was easy for a distinct culture to thrive on a floating island.

The reason being that we had to use airships to go back and forth to other islands. At times, there were floating islands that didn’t have airships, so the people there built their own society by themselves.

There were also adventures set to discover such floating islands.

Though sometimes people with ill-intent would raid them.

No matter how much people tended to gloss over it, there were many adventurers who were wild.

Actually, I suppose I also destroyed some historical ruins in order to obtain Luxon back then.

I climbed up a stairway made of stone.

The gate and shrine I then saw were indeed reminiscent of Japan.

Since the floating island itself was styled after Japan, it made me feel as if I had stepped into a completely different world.

I spotted a shrine maiden cleaning the grounds.

She was an adorable shrine maiden who looked around ten years old.

“Hello. Is this the shrine for marriage?”

Once I asked that, the cute shrine maiden smiled and nodded her head.

“Yes. There’s a god of marriage. There’s also blessings for war and magic.”

The god seemed appreciative of military personnel and magicians.

As I was heading towards the shrine to give my thanks, some people came by while I was talking with the shrine maiden.

“──Ah.”

“So you’re here as well?”

“U, um.”

While I could only let out a few syllables, Anjie looked at our faces while seeming troubled. It seemed she met Olivia below the stairway and then came up here.

The small shrine maiden greeted us with a smile.

“Ah, you’re the nobles from the academy. Um, do you know what to do?”

The cute shrine maiden politely proceeded to tell us what to do.

Ah~, this was soothing.

It was like it washed away all the outrageous things in this otome game world.

I came here to visit for that reason, but now the three of us were standing in front of an offertory box.

──This was awkward.

“W, we’re supposed to make an offering, right? How much?”

An embarrassed Anjie took out a gold coin from her purse.

Olivia looked at her.

“T, that much?”

“Is this not right? This much is normal in temples.”

It was nice that temples were monotheistic, but didn’t reject other religions. I really did not want a religious war. This was the first time I thanked the lackluster setting for the world of that otome game.

While standing beside the two, I put in a roll of banknotes and some gold coins to repay for yesterday. Was I insane? I think not. In the game, paying a certain amount of money led to the protagonist’s likability with the capture target to drastically increase. Placing trust in such a blessing, I put in a great deal of money.

I only remembered it last night, and regretted that I hadn’t brought more money with me.

While the two were dumbfounded, I politely made my prayers.

“God, I won’t ask for anything luxurious. So please, please, let me have a wife! Please let me get married to a kind woman with good sense! I don’t want a woman who looks down on their husband and makes their husband raise the child of another man. Please give me a suitable partner!”

My strong wish escaped from my mouth.

The two were shocked, but this was a very important matter for me.

Despite having done all I could, the results had gone awry and I had to suffer hardships, so please grant this wish to my pitiful self, god!

While I frantically prayed, Anjie and Olivia also began praying next to me.

As expected, they didn’t voice out their wishes.

I wondered what the two would wish for.

I had no clue about Anjie’s prayer, but it probably had to do with marriage since that was what the shrine was for. As for Olivia──I wondered if she would get closer with anyone other than the worthless Greg and Brad.

No wait, there was little hope. Since Julian and Jilk were useless as well, that left only Chris as a candidate.

──Whatever, as long as Olivia is happy, then anyone is fine.

I just wanted the country to be saved.

I returned to thinking about my wish.

“If possible, make her chest big, and a narrow waist would be nice as well. It would be even better if she was slightly frisky! Honestly, I want an amorous adult who can pamper me and──”

Listening to my prayer of unstoppable desire, Anjie and Olivia pulled me by the ears and dragged me out in embarrassment.

“Wait! I didn’t say everything yet! There’s still more I want to say!”

Anjie’s face was bright red.

“W, what are you saying in front of a child, you idiot?!”

The young shrine maiden’s face was red as well.

That was pretty cute though, wasn’t it? No, I didn’t mean that in a twisted sense. I just found it precious that a girl was so pure.

Pure enough that it made me embarrassed of my own desires.

Olivia apologized to the shrine maiden.

“I’m sorry. Please forget what you just heard.”

“U, umm, it, it’s okay. I was a surprised at a lot of it, but do your best!”

Right! I would do my best. I would do my best at seeking marriage.

I waved my hand at the smiling shrine maiden, and we descended the stairway

Returning to the luxury liner, I watched us leave the floating island from the deck.

I took out my charm and examined it.

Luxon, perhaps having interest in it, voiced out to me.

[It seems like it goes around your neck.]

“Say, do you think this thing is blessed?”

[It’s not a bad thing to rely on something for spiritual reassurance. You shouldn’t rely too much on it, though.]

It didn’t deny the existence of gods, but it seemed that it didn’t believe that the charm would result in good luck either.

I put it around my neck and looked up at the summer-like sun, squinting my eyes.

“It’s hot.”

[It seems so. Anyways, I’m a bit curious.]

“About what?”

[Could it be that you didn’t actively tackle the dungeon because you didn’t have that charm yet? Are you expecting some game-like effect?]

“I, idiot, that’s not it.”

[Is that so? I’ve had my suspicions since you were constantly pushing back the retrieval of that ‘Holy Bracelet’.]

“Y, you really are a distrustful thing.”

To be honest, I hadn’t challenged the dungeon any more than I needed to, hoping for an effect from the charm. I was expecting a game-like effect, but I didn’t really know if it would become a reality.

This was a little embarrassing.

“It’s hard to get to where the bracelet is. It’s a tough place for even the upperclassmen. I need to make preparations for safely retrieving it.”

[Is that so? I’m worried since you’re not doing it in a hurry. I’m curious about how you’re not rushing it despite the threat of Marie.]

If Marie played the game, she wouldn’t do anything stupid.

Originally, conquering the dungeon was something that would happen during the third school term.

At that point, I would earn money through the dungeon until the middle of my second school year.

[All things considered, I thought I would be able to unveil ”Schwert”, which I had taken great pains to make.]

“Did you just arbitrarily give a name to that air bike? You know, the owner of that thing is me. Actually, you called it Schwert, right? I suppose it’s fine since I like the name, but what meaning does it have?”

[Master, do you know about how air bikes are compared to a fish? They’re likened to them because they’re small compared to an airship.]

“I’ve heard about that. What about it?”

[No, it’s nothing. Schwert means sword.]

“Ain’t that nice! I like it even more. That air bike has a pointed tip, so I feel like it matches well.”

[Erm, I was actually going for a swordfish analogy──never mind.]

I admired the naming sense of this thing.

“At any rate, you must have done quite a bit of remodeling. Maybe you can make it a metallic color.”

[Sounds good. Would you like there to be some blue mixed in? Even better, I can take the rudder and──never mind.]

“I’ll entrust the coloring to you.”

[Leave it to me. Also, Schwert is a like a restless, moody horse, making it hard to regulate. Master, handle it with care.]

What?

Did this thing cherish the air bike after having named and modified it?

Come to think of it, it also cherished Partner quite a bit as well.

I better not say anything bad about Partner or Schwert.

  1. Thanks for the chapter
    “…but I some free time until then, so I went sightseeing.” Would be “…but i have/got some free time until then…”

    Also, Leon baka, you already have close to you your ideal partners, you only need to stop being indecisive and just turn the otome game into a galge, it cant be hard if you already have the minimum of routes in Livia and Anjie plus the queen and the least liked route of imouto,

      1. I puked a little with that at the end, The inouto rute is as likely as the one in SEVENS, but the queen rute sounds nice.

        1. Well, for something i said least liked imouto route, if the devs were good they could let the harem route by getting the affection points of livia and anjie to the max until the ending, also yeah, the queen doesnt sound as a bad route

          1. Which imouto, the current blood related younger sister or the younger sister from previous life in Japan who’s no longer blood related?

      1. Here is the plan, Leon slowly turns it into a galge and then BAM it was a eroge at the end, just to surprise those good fans, what nice devs arent they?

    1. Why imouto route is the least liked? I think it will be a blast, but if only Leon can dominate her. Kinda like stories where the heroine is being tamed and then goes dere dere while still retain her sharp edge XD

      1. simple, because she trash. why trying get trash when much better womans/girls want leon. dont confuse between trash and tsundere

    1. Yup, it’s because the owner is like that. So it’s not surprising if his personality becoming weird overtime.

      1. Idk, I never hear Luxon voice. But from the name I don’t think that it’s a girls name though. That’s why I use a he. But if Luxon is a girl then thanks for the correction. :3

      2. Luxon itself said that it has no gender, ’cause it’s a machine not human(do remember that not all living creatures have 2 genders like most animals)

  2. Hell yeah thanks for the update!!
    Another early update man this guys on a roll.
    OK is something going to happen to me or am I being hysterical? I’m so not used to good things happening in this quick successions that its freaking me out.
    I usually have bad days everyday so having good days is making me nervous especially if they are in rapid successions, its like bad luck is just letting me have good luck to let my guard down then swoop in and annihilate it in the most violent way possible.

    Leecher here..
    Signing off..

  3. Thanks for the chap~

    Ah~ so that’s the item that Marie after in the depth of the church mentioned in the previous chapters. It’s all makes sense now. Unless my prediction was off though (笑)

  4. Thanks for the chapter…
    You shouldve change this site name into 2fast2soon translation… I originally expect this chapter tomorrow…

    Its total unexpected and highly appreciated

  5. Thanks for the chapter!

    Sad to think Milaine is not there with that three… No wait, maybe Leon will ask her personally to go to shrine of marriage in the future! ???? what i mean is Milaine is the true heroine in this series right?

  6. Thank you for the update ~

    Is it possible that Luxon is also a human and she’s of the Daughter or Son of the dead bodies in the Dungeon where Leon found the airship? Because it is possible that the Parents of her/him, Froze her/him in time inside the secret room in the airship, then she/she just regained consciousness when Leon intruded. But instead of introducing herself/himself, she/he proclaimed that she’s/he’s an A.I. guarding him/her Masters’ (parents’) creation.

    Well if my hypothesis is correct, that’s going to be a good twist

    1. Luxon for one said that it does NOT have gender and two it had killed other adventurers that had tried to steal from the ruins. It’s thanks to their conversations that it managed to learn the language!

  7. So Marie will undoubtedly be getting that Holy Bracelet first. You’re becoming increasingly annoying as a main character, Leon. It’s getting difficult to sympathize with such a hard-headed idiot.

  8. Oh man, i enjoyed reading the chapter. Like they said, if you really want it, you have to voice it out. But, actually, that was embarassing. I literary covered my face while i read that part. Forcing myself not to laugh in public place. Man, that was torture. And did he really wished whats in front, i mean, side of him? So that’s why the little miko said “do ur best”, not to him, but to the girls i think…every boys go crazy when talking about toys, cars, bikes, and other mecha stuffs. Cant help it right? Thanks for the treat.
    Star this, and you will be awesome!! (b`w°)b

  9. So the Queen is a spot-on in Leon’s criteria eh.
    MilaineXLeon all tha way~~
    Thanks for the chapter!!!
    (シ_ _)シ

  10. “In the game, paying a certain amount of money led to the protagonist’s likability with the capture target to drastically increase. Placing trust in such a blessing, I put in a great deal of money.”
    Did he forget that Olivia was the protagonist? And the two girls never looked down on Leon. He unconsciously raised the flag. LOL
    And for 2Slow, because the LN has only 2 volumes, if V2 is up, will you wait until V3 is released or move to WN?

    1. I think his plan was to go back to the Is it tough being a Friend LN after he up to date in this LN. So you will have to wait till volume 3 come out, to get more of this series.

  11. thanks for the chapter ????

    why Olivia boob look small in previous Chapter? maybe because of kimono… anyway Leon your wish have been hear by Anjie & Olivia just until them make it come true haha…

  12. Thanks for the chapter..
    Luxon needs fellow companions for himself too you know..
    He is going to the lolicon side of things…. but that is good too.. but Marie is selfish you know she has already got the thing in that dungeon I think..

  13. Damnit leon, you got them eyes already, they’re just beside you ffs, you also get an extra queen

    1. Well Author is most likely waiting to add a few more girls for his harem, before all the rom-com officially starts

  14. A new airbike named Flying Swordfish / Shwert !
    Hmm… mhmm… this AI have good naming sense. Flying Orca approve !

    It is nice to see the three main characters beginning to get better after the whole break ups

  15. Thanks for the translation!
    Good to see Angie and Livia still able to talk and chastise Leon like friends. He really should get over idea that he’s just a mob character. After all, Marie already raised the flags with the capture targets so it’s not like they’d get romantically involved much less notice Livia. Heck Leon probably has already raised too many flags for both Livia and Angie unless he does something really stupid that they take as a severe betrayal. Like the flag in the dungeon where he got hurt and Livia healed him which was suppose to be between Julian and Livia. Except it was between Julian and Marie with Leon and Livia instead. And now he did something really stupid by praying together with them at the shrine and depositing a lot of money without realizing that it’d raise his levels with them instead of some dream girl hasn’t met yet. Especially considering both match the preferences he stated. 🙂 Wonder what Angie prayed for, Livia probably prayed to have a better relationship and get close to Leon again.

    BTW, does anyone know if polygamy is legal in that country or multitude of lovers are overlooked as long as only one official spouse? Cause Leon’s mother is his father’s mistress while Zola is the official wife, women have lots of lovers but only one husband (living and above ground at any rate,) and Marie is going for a reverse harem. Be nice if Leon could wed both Angie and Livia once overcome hurdles of different social positions and his thickheadedness of being a mob.

    1. Considering this novel is to a big point very similar to ‘expecting to fall into ruin, i aim to become blacksmith'(i think it was this one),

      Spoiler
      and it took a very bad turn at one point at least in my opinion as for the MC’s love for the target of the game or whatever it was took long because the MC thought that he doesn’t deserve her or something after all even the prince fell in love with her in the original

      (I might be wrong, so don’t quote me on that)

  16. “If possible, make her chest big, and a narrow waist would be nice as well. It would be even better if she was slightly frisky! Honestly, I want an amorous adult who can pamper me and──”
