The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs

The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs v2 Chapter 11 Part 2

I used my hand to push aside a monster that had been pierced through.

Arroganz’s chest was open. The wind outside entered the cockpit, creating a vast sensation of spaciousness. At the same time, I was full of unease since my mortal body was exposed to the outside.

I had tilted my head to the right, dodging the Black Knight’s long sword by a hair’s breadth.

That sword had aimed to pierce my head.

I would have been dead if it was aimed at my abdomen.

“*huff*──*puff*──”

With my bare eyes, I saw the Black Knight readying his sword.

Luxon explained the conditions of my armor’s exterior

[Performance has been reduced by thirty percent. The amount of burden on the pilot has increased. I advise withdrawing.]

“I never heard about Arroganz’s armor being penetrable.”

[It seems that the sword your foe carries is made of a metal peculiar to this world, ‘Admatius’. A fantasy-esque metal.]

“Says the fantasy-like lump of metal.”

It was a specially made large sword.

The Black Knight was a broken character wielding such a weapon.

“I mean, I do want to hurry and get out of here. What’s with this guy? He seems too strong.”

Luxon’s rebuttal towards my complaints hit a little too close to home.

[This is the result of not taking the life of your opponents, Master. Due to that, they’ve been driven to a situation where they won’t retreat.]

How painfully true it was.

Thereupon, the Black Knight spoke to me.

“You’re young. Too young. Are you really a knight of the kingdom?”

I wasn’t really too sure about the details regarding the Black Knight’s setting, but his rough voice sounded like he was either in the prime of his life, or past middle-aged.

“Your invasion has been leaving me no choice but to fight, don’t you think?”

“Is that so? ──It was the same back in my day. I was a youngster, resentful of the kingdom I had been born in.”

I couldn’t shift my gaze away from the Black Knight.

I tightly clutched the joysticks, tightening Arroganz’s fist while breathing in disarray from the tension.

Why did I have to fight a tough battle like this?

Normally, I would have definitely fled.

Why didn’t I run away? It would have been embarrassing if I ran away after having smugly criticized the other kids, and also because this guy didn’t seem ready to let me go.

If I turned my back, he would definitely kill me.

Furthermore, the long sword my opponent was wielding had penetrated Arroganz. It would be able to pierce Partner’s plating as well.

Livia and Anjie’s faces popped up in my mind. And what about the others? As if I knew them!

If I didn’t stop this guy here, those two would be in trouble.

Luxon spoke to me.

[I request permission to utilize my main body.]

“If you use it, you’re probably going to kill the Black Knight. I can’t let you do that.”

[I cannot understand you. Your opponent is coming!]

The Black Knight made the first move.

The charm hanging around my neck shook.

As the Black Knight swung down his big sword, his movements seemed to lack any shred of indecisiveness. He was not hesitant to kill me. When I stopped the blow with my right arm, the sword dug deeply into it.

The sound of an alert continued to blare, and when I aimed my left hand towards the Black Knight, he seemed to sense the danger, pulled out the sword, flew above me, and turned towards my back.

Turning around, I saw the Black Knight swinging his large sword with a horizontal slash.

Having closed the distance, I clashed with Black Knight, causing the large sword to wedge itself deeply into my right shoulder.

“Just how much of a difference in armor performance is there between this broken bastard and me?!”

Luxon calmly replied to my complaint.

[There’s an overwhelming difference in terms of the pilot’s skills.]

When I drove my left arm into the Black Knight and was about to release a shockwave, he violently kicked away my arm and separated from me.

Like that, we continued to struggle, confronting each other over and over again, and before long──the Black Knight, with his back to the evening sun, faced me.

The Black Knight lost his left arm and had no legs.

I was also battered up.

The Black Knight seemed weakened as well.

“──To think I’d lose to a knight of the kingdom.”

He squeezed out a voice of agony.

I was also in pain.

As the black knight charged forward, I squinted my eyes from the radiance of the evening sun. I felt that his giant sword had glistened momentarily. The nerve he had to use such an old trick! How cowardly!

Closing the distance, the Black Knight thrust his sword into Arroganz.

I immediately slipped out of Arroganz and leaped, using an anchor to hook onto the Black Knight’s armor. Though the Black Knight was surprised by my action, he smiled.

“Did you give up?!”

“Nope, I’ve won.”

The Black Knight, with his attention focused solely on me, didn’t notice Arroganz taking action.

Arroganz held the Black Knight’s armor tightly──constricting him.

“Wha?! How could you operate it?!”

Tearing off the head of his armor, I confronted the Black Knight while he was unable to move. Facing the aging man who had a large scar on his forehead, I drew out a handgun from my holster and aimed it at him.

“This is the end. Surrender.”

The Black Knight glared at me. His spirit could send chills down anyone’s spine.

“I decline. Just kill me quickly! Kill this coward.”

I refused.

Luxon popped out from Arroganz and came over to my side.

[Master, we have completed gaining total control.]

I looked around, no longer hearing the sounds of battle.

The opposing fleet could no longer move. All of their armor units were also floating above the sea.

“Bravo!”

We helped stop the principality without needing to use Luxon’s main body.

[That was really troublesome.]

The Black Knight felt bitter.

“Princess──I’m sorry.”

While watching the Black Knight in that state, I noticed a ray of light being fired from one of the principality’s warships. It looked like a flare, causing me to furrow my brow.

“They really don’t know when to give up.”

Garrett was laughing like a madman when seeing the Black Knight lose.

“This is the end. I’m done for.”

With the defeat of the Black Knight, a living legend, the morale of the principality’s troops sank.

They no longer had any fighting power.

The principality’s troops lost to a civilian airship holding students.

Garrett, who was more than likely going to be held responsible, took out a gun-like object from his pocket and approached a window.

The item, which could fire only a single shot, was created as a result of research conducted on the magic flute.

It could summon together monsters.

Originally, it was a tool used to gather monsters who were controlled by the magic flute, but its use was restricted since it displayed a particularly powerful effect.

“A, at this point, I must at least erase everything. I will not be labeled as incompetent by history──so I will do away with it all!”

Once he pointed it towards the air and pulled the trigger, it fired a glow akin to a flare.

The glow, which lit up the darkened sky, made a strange sound.

Monsters then appeared, as if drawn by it.

From the sky, the sea──one by one, they gathered.

“Now, monsters, erase everything!”

The ridiculously strong armor of the Black Knight had been destroyed and rendered inoperable. There was only one big, strange airship left.

An opposing airship with few cannons. Garrett thought that it would be weak against attacks of large numbers.

Panicking soldiers came and pinned down Garrett, who was roaring with laughter.

However, the number of monsters continued to increase.

I watched the situation from atop of Arroganz, which was still restraining the Black Knight.

I breathed a small sigh before the sight of monsters gushing forth to no end.

Luxon, floating beside me, spoke nonchalantly.

[It’s a spectacle to see so many gathering together.]

The immobile Black Knight glared at the warship that had fired the flare.

“What a fool. Does he plan on getting rid of everything here? Hey, brat! Inform the princess. Tell her to play the magic flute. This situation is unfavorable for you people as well.”

Did he plan on letting her controlling the newly gathered monsters with the magic flute?

That was indeed an option, but if that happened, then the number of enemies we had would increase again.

Perhaps noticing my doubts, the Black Knight attempted to persuade me.

“I don’t plan on going against you at this point. Do you want both sides to be annihilated?!”

As if I could trust what he was saying!

I turned towards Luxon.

“I’m not looking for total annihilation. Luxon, how about you go to work?”

[At last, is it my turn?]

Luxon’s one red eye brightened.

Upon which, a cloud floating the sky fired successive thin rays of light, piercing through the gathering monsters and turning them into black smoke.

The Black Knight turned his head and watch that scene.

“What’s going on?!”

It seemed quite like a meteor shower.

However, the black smoke arising from the monsters’ defeat gradually obscured the beautiful scenery.

I turned to face the Black Knight.

“You guys aren’t the only ones with tricks up their sleeves. Make sure to tell that to your country once you get home.”

Thereupon, the Black Knight yelled at me.

“Are you planning to spare my head?! You──had you been going easy on us since the beginning?! Just how much of a fool do you plan on making us?!”

What would I do with an old geezer’s head?!

“As if I want your head, revolting. Though, I will accept your giant sword. After all, I don’t know what you would do if you had it.”

The Black Knight’s large sword had really been a hassle for me.

“You brat! Don’t forget that your naivety will take your life away one day! Next time, for sure──”

I smiled while watching the Black Knight’s outrage.

“I saved you out of the kindness of my heart, and yet you’re howling quite arrogantly, aren’t you? Old man, it seems you don’t know. It’s already over for you guys.”

Since the Black Knight made a facial expression indicating that he didn’t understand, I kindly and politely explained.

“You don’t get it? Sure, the opponent you all lost to was armed, but it still a civilian airship. Adding insult to injury, the ones riding it were students. When you tried to take a student hostage, the tables had turned on you instead. Do you know what that means?”

The Black Knight made a face of surprise.

“──How despicable!”

I smiled how informing him of the matter.

“Grown adults took a serious stance against some children and lost to them! Even if I’m a strong and terrific guy, that doesn’t matter. You all lost to a noble’s child from the kingdom. Do you genuinely think that there will be anything for you people in the future? Old man, you should just retire. Actually, you’ll have no choice but to retire! Your time is already over. You’ve done well up until now. How is it to lose your placement as a knight? Do tell.”

The Black Knight’s face warped into an expression of frustration.

“You, you mean to say that we’ll live while smeared with shame?! You don’t even have the kindness to let us die as knights on a battlefield, you fiend!”

I brought my face closer to the Black Knight, head-butting him, which ended up hurting. What a hard-headed person he was.

A kindness to kill? I couldn’t understand his sense of values. This opponent was quite difficult to handle.

“The losers have to obey the winners, right? Live your life while plastered with disgrace. I may be kind as a person, but I believe you’ll find me fiendish and dastardly as a knight.”

The Black Knight clenched his teeth. His hatred of me caused him to make an immense facial expression.

“I wonder how long you can keep fighting like that.”

While we were deep in talk, Luxon had finished killing the monsters, and now we were surrounded by silence. I restrained the Black Knight, headed towards Partner, and then began shifting into motion.

      1. actually it’s the perfect application of the term as it refers to children born out of wedlock, and it was made pretty clear in the first volume that Leon’s mother was not the legal wife despite established a relationship before the noble bitch

  1. if anyone here thinks leon is bad ass they should go to an eye doctor cause all i can see is a naive boy thinking everything will be fine if he just win quite diffrent from our beloved lyle/mr. lyle.

    1. Eh, here Leon is right tho, their world is based a lot in their “noble´s way”, in their status, Leon hit them where it hurt most, if the old man would have died, it would create a high uproar in the principality due to their animosity being on the max, they could perfectly manipulate his situation into something to rally all their country, but if their hero returns all batered and defeated in a 1 on 5 battle, plus Leon showed a hint that in an all out battle their entire army of monsters and ships is totally useless, using just one ship to overthrow all their vanguard and a laser shower decimating all the monsters, it is a warning to the principality and i think it is more effective this way, although it too comes with downsides, but even a massacre would be another downside, as in how there is a bad way to eliminate a hate cycle, which is totally eliminating one of the sides, erase it completely so ther eis no one who can hate you

    2. But Leon not just win isn’t he? He destroyed will and spirit of his enemy by showing of his superiority. And make allies see him as Hero and the enemy going despair in realization.

    3. sometimes you need more cruelty to ensure your own family is safe and out of harms if that were me i would kill them all so the principality won’t know who their real enemy is

      and maybe i just expected too much since this novel came from the same author as sevens and dragoon

      1. There were traitors that exposed the nobles to be attacked by the enemy. How are you going to censure even your own side from reporting the massacre of the enemy? Those fellow students still hate Leon and probably dumb enough to not think twice about trying to smear Leon’s savagery in dealing with the enemy.

        1. Well, leon already ratted out two traitors, and has shown what he is able off to the world, it really is necessary to be brain dead to oppose him now, also, anjie papa will be glad to have león on his camp now that he rescued her and rat out some traitors of her faction

          1. Then I guess the concepts of ‘conspiracy’ and ‘poison’ flies right over your head then….

            Your ideal MC:”Look At me, So powerful. I kill everyone!”
            *Randomn lunatic shivs MC in the back.

  2. Thanks for the chapter, Leon truly went all out in dastardly knight mode, bringing the greatest shame possible to the principality army, really, who would want to kill them when they could be outright executed when they get back? they have lost all, the special sword, their elite mechs totally destroyed, the special flute stolen, the princess captured, their ace item completely outclassed, all by a single student with some others that protected a civilian cruiser, with like 5-6 ordinary mechs and one special unit. also, now that Luxon knows of this new strong metal, oh boi, prepare an upgrade to all his equipment

  3. Thanks for the chapter
    Personally i didn’t really like the “no killing rule” in this situation, but Leon handle it good enough by being the villain-like protagonist

  4. And now, the long awaited promotion. I wonder if he gonna keep them as his slaves… anyway, thanks for the chapter

  5. I’ll he find 2 wet girls upon his return ready to jump his bone and make his perverted prayers come true? Will those thotches see how awesome he is and get wet as well?

    1. Would be nice but I doubt it. Leon values them too much to risk ruining their reputation with a one night stand. Yes girls up to Earl rank are loose but after that very stringent. Mentioned earlier as for why Anjie doesn’t have personal servants. Mainly think everyone too exhausted from battle to move around much assuming they don’t pass out once the adrenaline wears off.

  6. Thank you. Translator-san, you are very fast.♡
    Leon acted as he was a villain when he said he was just a mob and in the reality he was a hero.
    How fun!

  7. The craziest thing is that Arroganz might have actually upgraded from this battle once repaired, as it now has a cheat fantasy sword to go with its cheat fantasy everything else.

  8. Neat, a new chapter!

    Your translating has increased to ludicrous speed as well.

    Also, since LN 2 of Otome Games is almost done, Ichirou will be back soon! Huzzah! No more cliffhanger!

  9. Thanks for the chapter

    Leon really enjoy playing the villains role, i can’t wait until the war start and he goes full super villains mode.

  10. Thanks for the chapter desu~~

    Yes, Leon naivety will cause him trouble in the future. Honestly speaking him being that way makes this story more interesting, because being able to kill won’t fit his character and the story as well.

    Yes, Isekai mc who can kill is a mainstream these days, for example “Solo Leveling” that is because it perfectly fit to the story and Jin Woo being a merciless killer is reasonable too.

    Remember unlike “Solo Leveling” this novel is setup in Otome Games it does not revolve around killings and extreme violence, so if you suddenly turns this novel into one, then the whole Otome Game setup would change, and if that happens this novel would be boring to read anymore.

    1. You can’t make direct comparisons between Japanese and Korean novels like this. They pander to entirely separate audiences, with vastly different expectations.

  11. Meatbun Delivery~
    Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)

    Aww.. a good MC should make those types of enemies into their companion or at least subordinates..

  12. Thanks for the chapter! As usual, Leon can be really savage. I wonder how long he will be able to go without killing another person in combat? Luxon’s points about that are also valid. However, I can see how someone who came from a relatively nonviolent society where even their military force has only recently been allowed to carry live weapons on dangerous peacekeeping missions might have trouble accepting the responsibility of taking another person’s life. However, once he graduates from the academy, I think he won’t have mercy as a practical option when he takes up full knightly duties…

  13. Demoralising the enemy by spinning the narrative of an incompetent invasion is great and all but looking at the fools of his own kingdom, even his own countries noble class will get fooled into complacency because most of them still do look down/underestimate Leon.

  14. I honestly hope his naivety comes back to hurt him. He spares an enemy and instead they go after his friends and love interests. Protagonists who view the world in such a harsh black and white mentality are ridiculous.

    1. Spoiler
      in the next arc, after this one it does come back to bite him in the ass but at the same he starts killing them mercilessly when they thought he doesn’t kill his enemies, but boy were they in for a rude awakening
      at one point Angie and Livia stops Leon for killing any more people in another arc.

  15. Thanks as always!

    I know I’m just wasting time for typing all this, but I there are things I want to say.

    Sure, his no-killing rule may restrain him from many other available solution, but I think he played it right this time around. If he wanted, he could just summon those heaven-defying earth-shattering sci-fi induced rays of light to just annihilate anything and everything in his path from the very beginning. Heck, he should just blast off the whole kingdom and make himself the rule of the new world. Actually, what am I doing right now. I gotta sleep.

  16. While I am very grateful for the fast releases , I am also sad because I dont know when the 3rd volume will be release yet.

  17. Thanks for the chapter!

    Anyine know to set notification in this web? Feel tired to refresh homepage more than 10 times in a day ????

  18. Sadly it is as Rick said. You could try eliminate all the witnesses on the enemy side (I guess some did escape, when the battle went downhill for them, to report back.), but you also have the witnesses on your side. And those guys are backstabbing bastards.

    I also don’t believe that black knight guy would try to do something to his family, but the ex-bearded bastard is different. Such people are bad news. He should he killed him, when he had the chance. In his old world society would have (tried to) looked out, that such people don’t harm your beloved ones or you, but in this case he will roam free and become a danger, as he will seek revenge. He really should have gotten rid of him.

  19. I get it now! If Leon had killed this guy he (the black knight) would have suffered a hero’s death by dying while fighting the enemy and become a martyr motivating his kingdom to fight for vengeance, now he will live his life in shame for losing to student, seeing their hero completely beaten up by children their kingdom will lose any motivation to fight and Leon’s kingdom will have the upper hand in future relationships due to this attack, it’s Leo’s complete victory!

  20. Thanks for the translation!
    Looks like Leon managed to win again. Wonder if shock of almost dying again is going to hit him once the adrenaline wears off. I wonder if Luxon can create it’s own Admantius now that they have a sample in the Black Knight’s sword to upgrade weapons, armor and stuff for Arroganz, Schwert, Partner and other equipment. Battles should be a little easier since he beat and disgraced the most powerful opponent from the game. It’s good he’s trying to avoid killing his opponents as much as he can as people or countries that are of the only good enemy is a dead enemy mindset don’t tend to last long. Also, enemies won’t worry about dying if surrender but sooner or later Leon is probably going to have to kill someone and hope Angie and Livia are there to help him cope with it when he does. Leon should have Luxon make armor (both the robots and body armor types) for Livia and Angie since they seem to keep getting into battles as well.
    Considering beat Black Knight and was MV Attacker against an enemy fleet and hoard of monsters Leon is definitely getting a big promotion out of this. Anyone know what minimum rank is needed to be high enough to court Angie? Btw, has the Earl daughter Deidre shown up before? The Earl daughter who tried to assault the queen, tread on Leon, beaten up by Angie at Airbike race and was almost strangled by Angie after being slammed against wall near Livia’s room was a different Earl daughter whose family is in hot water for colluding with the Air Pirates right?

  21. Thanks for the chapter..
    Those armors may have gotten damaged but now he has a metal that is too strong!! Wondering what other broken characters are going to appear now… Reproducing another element from another one will be an easy task for Luxon I guess

  22. Soooo…. With Luxon strong capabilities like this. Why the heck is he still afraid of the upcoming war? “he mentioned before that even though he have Luxon, he would still be forced to run out of the continent because of the war”. Really? Are they going to fight against the Old Gods or something? Lul

  23. What? Don’t tell me Leon actually let the Black Knight return home? Why not take him as a prisoner? Why would you just let him leave?

  24. He’s fighting an “equal” opponent who had killing intention for him, and he choose not to kill? What an idiot MC really.
