The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs

The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs v2 Chapter 9 Part 2

Chris called out to and gathered representatives of the students and sailors into one room.

I arrived at a hall, carrying a shotgun that I bought from a sailor along the way.

There were many people who hung their heads, perhaps in despair.

While checking the shotgun shells, which were the ammunition for the shotgun, I looked at Chris making a speech at the center of a staircase in the hall.

He sat on the staircase and turned towards the faces of the people gathered.

“I’ve concluded that there’s no choice but to fight if we want everyone to escape from harm. Everyone, lend your power.”

Chris received a series of jeers.

“Don’t get carried away, first-year!”

“Why are you bossing us around when you’re not even that strong?!”

“You lost to that piece of trash over there!”

“In the first place, Anjelica is the evil one! Didn’t she just save only herself?”

“How unbelievable for the daughter of a duke household.”

When I glared at the boy who called me a piece of trash and the girl who looked down on Anjie, they hid themselves. However, I memorized their faces and would get revenge later. I definitely would!

Given that the field trip included first-year through third-year students, it was somewhat troublesome for Chris to be the head. It seemed that some upperclassmen didn’t want to follow the directions of their underclassmen.

However, it was possible that we would die.

There would be people who openly assume position when things like hierarchies no longer had meaning. The boys in the regular class were smiling.

“This is a war we’re talking about. You boys in the advanced class are so prideful. Did you think that everyone would follow your orders?”

“To think you’d have the nerve to order us around so proudly.”

“To start with, what authority does an expert swordsman have when he had been disinherited?”

The girls were the same. However, it involved them arguing with their exclusive servants.

“Wait, you should follow my orders!”

“How impudent, lass! Why should I follow your orders at a time like this?!”

The scene had gotten hectic, so I ascended the stairs.

As I shouldered the shotgun, everyone’s sight gathered onto me.

“You’re all whiny and annoying, you incompetents.”

My audience fell silent in front of the weapon I held. Their gazes were filled with feelings of fear and hatred.

“Listen up. I am a knight who officially holds a baron position. Furthermore, I’m of the lower fifth rank──a status higher than even the teachers who had been guiding you. Understand?”

The teachers averted their gaze.

The inconspicuous teachers were more or less nobles. However, their statuses were not high.

I suppose that the principal had a higher status than me, but nobody else did.

What about my mentor? I suppose that my status was higher than him.

Though, I respected my mentor as a person. Status was irrelevant in this case, he was something I was outclassed by.

“So I’ll be the one giving orders. Fight. If you don’t want to die, then fight.”

As expected, everyone voiced opposition to what I said.

“Y, you’re kidding me! You guys should be the ones fighting!”

“──Yeah, I’ll fight. After all, I’m a genuine noble. Not like you fake nobles.”

A third-year girl furrowed her brow in response to what I said.

She seemed strong-willed and had curly blond hair──which formed in the shape of drills.

She wore high heels, and looked like queen with an unwavering heart.

She used her mouth, which wore red lipstick, to question me while irritated.

“Fake nobles, you say? How rude to say that towards me, someone from an earl household.”

It seemed that the girl held power second to Anjie. The surrounding people went silent. I could see the sad nature of the aristocratic boys going silent in front of the girl, even though they opposed Chris and I.

“And you are?”

“To think that you wouldn’t know me! I am ‘Deirdre Fou Roseblade’. The daughter of the Roseblade earl family!”

That sounded familiar. However, I pretended not to know. I stuck my fingers into my ears, and made myself look as if I was annoyed.

“Doesn’t ring a bell. I don’t know whether you’re a Roseblade, a rosehip, or whatever, but what worth do you have right now?”

“Wha?! H, how rude!”

What a wonderful reaction from this mighty queen! I had been waiting for someone like her!

“I don’t know how great your household is, but you’re a sham.”

“You had to work up to get to your position! Yet, you’re calling me a sham!”

“Right! I ascended into my position. However, I’m a genuine adventurer. A noble who genuinely succeeded as an adventurer. Not someone to be likened with self-important fakes.”

Deirdre began to curse me with great vigor.

“Don’t get cocky, lowly baron! Our earl family presented the kingdom with a floating island, has captured many dungeons, and is a prestigious family amongst prestigious families. Know how impudent your household is in comparison!”

I applauded while still shouldering the shotgun.

“That’s sounds great. Your ancestors were the real deal.”

The arrogant Deirdre became uneasy over how lax I was being.

“Remember that. Your activities don’t even reach the feet of the Roseblade house──”

I began to laugh internally. What a great character Deirdre was!

“Splendid! Yes, your ancestors were genuine. Though, that’s quite sad, isn’t it. After all, their descendants became cowards amongst cowards. Surely, they must be weeping six feet underground. People like you who tremble in fear before a principality──are fakes.”

“W, what are you insinuating?”

“Am I wrong? What had you guys done when Anjie offered herself? You felt relieved, that’s what. You kept silent while waiting for the storm to pass by──and in the end, you curse Anjie when you realized that you would die. Each and every one of you are cowards amongst cowards! No wait, you’re not even great enough to qualify as cowards. You’re just pretentious, fake nobles.”

“Take that back!”

I approached Deirdre and spoke to her with a smile.

“Don’t wanna.”

Then, I took a distance and grinned with open arms.

“In a situation where we could get killed, you’re doing nothing but complaining. Your ancestors may have been successful adventurers, but you have no worth! You’re a pathetic good-for-nothing who didn’t inherit the bravery to set forth across the open skies on an airship, the knowledge to capture a dungeon, nor the power to defeat monsters.”

By the way, the Baltfault household didn’t have any big achievements as adventurers. I heard that they had nobles who participated in wars and accumulated enough achievements to earn a floating island.

In the first place, I had no attachment to ancestors, honor, or lineages. I don’t think my ancestors would be grieving. Rather, perhaps they would be concerned about escaping.

Even so, I continued to slander everyone! After all, it was convenient for me!

“The principality’s messenger was right. If we remove the selfishness of the nobles like you, you would have nothing to be proud of. You’re just shameful fakes who do nothing but cling onto the achievements of your ancestors. Each and every one of you are cowards who would get frightened and do nothing if told that you would be attacked. Your grand ancestors would surely cry──no wait, they would laugh!”

The students around me began to gradually become enraged.

And how nice it was!

I held my sides in laughter.

“They would roll around laughing! They would talk about how pathetic their descendants are! They would sneer while speaking of how shameful it is that you call yourselves nobles, and yet the only merit you have is that you’re the descendants of adventurers!”

I wiped my tears with my finger. Tears from laughing too much.

This was an act in order to have them make fools out of themselves──no wait, it was to embolden them.

“It’s wonderful that your ancestors worked hard to become nobles. However, it was all in vain. I mean, you guys are the ones who are supposed to be following their steps. You guys have no willpower, and would lose to a principality without resisting. Your ancestors’ achievements will be overwritten by your failures. Your actions are truly tarnishing everything. You’re tarnishing your ancestors’ achievements and placing shame onto your descendants. Your relatives will speak of your actions and what a disgrace they are!”

The setting of this world stated that nobles were proud of being the descendants of adventurers.

That was also something taught at the academy, and some people even admired their respectable ancestors.

At any rate, the nobles of this world adored the position of adventurers.

So what would happen if I stimulated that aspect of them?

“D, don’t make a fool out of us! I──I won’t let my ancestors feel ashamed! Do you think I would sully my family’s honor?!”

I smiled as if making fun of the people.

“You’ve got good spirit, but that alone means nothing. Place your hands over your chests and listen. Can you not hear it? It’s the voices of your ancestors’ blood flowing within you, laughing at how shameful you are!”

There were those who didn’t, but many had placed their hands over their chests. Among them were the sailors and even the exclusive servants.

“Listen, can you hear the roars of laughter? Or perhaps the voices of mourning? Shock, possibly? Maybe some of your ancestors are even thanking you for making them laugh. The good ancestors would say the following ──’There is no worth in a coward that flees from a fight!'”

Few people talked back.

Well, even if they did talk back, I would laugh at them.

I put on a serious look.

“Is the noble adventurer’s blood flowing within you a sham? Do you want to go down in shame, toyed around by the principality while simply waiting for death?!”

Deirdre looked at me.

“──It would be shameful for the daughter of the Roseblade household to die here without doing anything. Everyone, are you going let this guy go on talking like this? As he has said, we truly aren’t living up to our ancestors!”

The boys raised their voices.

“Don’t make light of us, damn bastard! Someone fetch some weapons!”

“How long do you think we’ve been training in the dungeon? A whole year! Be prepared, for we’ll show you the difference in strength between you and the upperclassmen!”

“The nerve you have to blabber on so smugly! Talk while you still can!”

The boys displayed motivation.

Likewise, the girls also seemed encouraged as well, showing a sense inspiration.

These fools should have made a serious effort from the beginning!

Chris looked at me.

“Baltfault, you──no, never mind.”

He shouldn’t have stopped if he was going to say something! Now I was curious!

Deirdre spoke next.

“Since you’ve said this much, you naturally have something thought out, right? That talk about being genuine nobles was done in order to break the deadlock, no?”

I raised my voice.

“You fools, listen closely! Even if what I say confuses you a bit, there’s no time to explain! So I’ll say this one thing, we’re breaking through the front, aiming after the principality’s leader!”

When the people around raised voices, asking if I was really being serious, Deirdre began to smile.

“Sounds good. You’re quite something! So──I wonder why none of the girls have raised their voices? If any of you attempt to cowardly escape now, I will not tolerate it!”

It seemed that the girls reluctantly resolved themselves as well in response to the words of their boss.

Deirdre looked at me.

“Now then, we know that we’re breaking through the front. What do you plan on doing? You’ve been boasting on, so you’ll have quite the active role, right?”

She was saying that she wouldn’t allow me to do nothing after having said such smug things.

I smiled.

“Of course. I’ll take the vanguard with an air bike.”

“An air bike? Are you planning to get yourself killed?”

The outside was crowded with flocks of monsters and airships from the principality. There would certainly be armor too.

If there was an idiot who wanted to charge through such a situation with an air bike, I would definitely laugh.

“I’ve got someone who can help. While I’m at it, I’ll snatch their important item and laugh at the principality’s fleet.”

“Is this about Anjelica? You’re not Anjelica’s follower, though.”

──It wasn’t like that.

“Every guy has at one point wanted to be a knight who would save a princess in trouble. Even if you people have abandoned Anjie, I won’t. She’s a good woman. You girls should follow her example for a bit.”

Deirdre bit her nail.

“That’s the first someone told me that some other woman was good.”

“Everyone, look after each other. Take note, you all should prepare as well. We have no time!”

The academy’s students showed determination. Enthusiasm circulated throughout the hall, and the students began to move in a frenzy. Meanwhile, I remembered that moment with Anjie.

When she made herself the only hostage, I should have said that I held the status of a baron. Then, she wouldn’t have been taken alone.

So she would be a hostage for the sake of everyone? She was still sixteen. I would regret it for my whole life if I abandoned Anjie, who displayed courage alone, and Anjie’s papa was scary as well. In this rotten world of an otome game, Anjie and──err, Anjie was my hope.

Deirdre’s mouth warped into the shape of a crescent, like that of the moon, as she smiled.

What? Why wasn’t she going away? We didn’t have time.

“A dog without discipline. With such a brazen attitude──you’d make a good pet. If it weren’t for the fact that you’re Anjelica’s favorite, I would have you by my side.”

This girl was another bad person to be with. Not to the same magnitude as others, but she wasn’t someone I wanted to get acquainted with.

“I appreciate it.”

    1. Also, “I don’t how great your household is, but you’re a sham.” should have a “know” between “don’t” and “how”.

      1. I think some of them good too, ones with true adventurer spirits that just got spoiled by their status and wealth. Once you can wipe what spoil them, they can be good material.

    1. I like the girls of this world too. They should definitely isekai to this other world/novel I also like: Goblin Slayer 😈

          1. He went full Metal Jacket on them, which is something i personally like, now WELCOME SCUM NOBLES TO LEON BOOT CAMP!!!

  1. Hook line and sinker. Or maybe reverse psychology?
    Oh! I know! He’s just laughing at them!! Oh man, nothing beats making people angry and listen to you. Oh shit, my S switch got flipped. But i like how he convinced them or maybe pursuaded? Coerced? Anyway, only an idiot would charge at the center of the enemy with an air bike. Yep. Only an idiot would.
    Also, did he raised many many flags? Any type of flags like murder flag, love flag or M flag?
    Once he rescues Anjie, i wonder if there will be happy ending, i mean, looking at the illustrations, i’m more confused.
    Thanks for the chapter. Your update is right on time when im bored.

    1. By this, he should get enough to gain a big promotion, and maybe Anjie’s dad will not loose the chance to pull him in as he would be perfect for his household, or thats what i hope

    2. Going by the previous examples, this Deirdre Roseblade must be one of those daughters of earldoms without exclusive servants. Either way, in the words of Team Four Star: “Holy sh*t, she is sassy as f*ck. I like her.” Lol.

      It is just too bad that Deirdre gave up so quickly. After all, she has the best chances of actually marrying Leon so far, and as long as one can deal with some….*gulp*… a small bit of domination during their intimate times, they might make s good power couple. Lol

  2. The part here trying to paint Leon as a hypocrite is stupid. It is completely irrelevant that his family weren’t adventurers. He isn’t the one claiming pride and authority from the exploits of his ancestors here. It would even be outright nonsense if he had, as he outranks his own family line purely from his personal achievements.

  3. In this chapter, Leon reminds me of Lyle. Also, I hope to read what happens to those idiotic nobles after the whole thing is over.

    Thanks for the chap

    1. Did not seduce an impressionable girl, complain about his unwanted harem, or let his Id run wild and free. I don’t see any similarity to Lyle.

      1. The only thing similar about this and seven is somehow the author make the imouto Chara / Loli Chara as the bad one
        Well they have same author anyway, I wonder if he actually hate his sister in real life, or something like that

      2. Yeah you got that right.

        Incidentally, the author made a crossover of Otome Mob, Sevens and Dragoon and in there Lyle was annoyed by Leon while feeling sorry for Marie.

  4. Thanks for the chapter desuwa~!

    Blonde, curly hair and drills? where’s the usual “Desuwa”?

    Don’t judge a book by its cover. This girl might change a little from now on and become part of the story now because of Leon. I wouldn’t even doubt if she somehow develop some feelings for Leon or like an admiration towards Leon.

      1. It’s “ho ho ho” or “oho ho ho”, depending on how pretentious they’re trying to be. The first one is standard with exactly three “ho”s, while the latter is more dramatic with the “o-” of “oho” being stressed.

        The things I study while reading webnovels…

  5. I really like how Leon tries to be the villain in many things that he do… Then got appreciated by those who already faced him… XD

    BTW thanks for the chap. Theres some mistake here and there but it’s still good ^^ praises to you..

  6. Do you know how crazy it sounds when Leon said he’ll breakthrough with airbike? Just imagine someone bring a bicycle to a war zone, facing against the tanks and missiles, all alone.

  7. I expected that he will use their ancestors to motivate them, but didn’t expect that he actually did… Nice, it make my blood boils with excitement.

    Thanks for the chapter

  8. Finally Leon married Livia , Anjie and the Queen and become the king…
    Maybe the story will end like this?
    Leon looks like a good king material.

    1. This spoiler also contains speculation of mine for things that have not been written.

      Spoilers Show
      1. Leon wouldn’t want to stop that because if he can use it to cause his rank to go down, so he can marry a nice woman. Not understanding that he already had that because he believe he not good enough and still believe he a mob.

            1. Spoilers Show
  9. Reads speech… we will not go silently into the night. Now we just need a montage and we will have gone full 90’s blockbuster. That and a terrible one liner when he kills the bad guy/ saves the girl.

  10. Thanks for the translation!
    Leon seems to be getting a little overexcited with the criticism. After all, if everybody dies dishonorably there and then they won’t have any descendants to have dishonored. Should’ve told Deidre he’s nobody’s dog instead of being appreciative. Poor Leon. Even if the princess and principality manage to escape he’ll still get another unwanted promotion for raising morale, rescuing Angie, and leading everyone out of certain death. Wonder if reward will be being raised above Baron or 5th court rank or both. Be funny if Angie’s dad broaches getting engaged to her with him. Love to see him try to explain whatever Luxon is going to do with Partner.
    Missing a word here.
    “I don’t how great your household is, but you’re a sham.” is missing a word between don’t and how. Could use “I don’t know how great your household is, but you’re a sham.”

  11. Hot Diggidy-Doodle this is awesome! The students aren’t all actually entirely stupid! I just hope that Leon will continue down towards this path of leadership and change the school’s mindset for the better, even if by just a tiny bit. Love it!

    Thanks for the Chapter~~~!

  12. Thanks for the chapter..
    There it is the famous “saying the cruel truth to make yourself look bad to make all the other people come together and then do your bidding” strategy… I knew he’ll do it…
    That girl thinks she can make someone who is this superior to her a pet? She’s too naive if she thinks he only have what she just saw now…

  13. “In this rotten world of an otome game Anjie and──err, Anjie was my hope.” Still in denial I see. Poor Livia.

    1. well, story wise, angie part are already over, while Livia still have ton of scene left, maybe he feel angie a lot safer story wise one?

  14. Thank for the Chapter.

    Leon still believe he a mob, even those he was able to rise everyone up to fight like a main character could.

  15. Leon: “Dishonor on you! dishonor on your family!!, dishonor on your ancestor!!, dishonor on your cow!!!!”

    anyway, when that girl say he want leon for herself, it’s would be a lot smug if he said “hmph.. you want me? get in line”

    i mean, if he want an Earl daughter, there’s Clarice-senpai~
