The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs

The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs v2 Chapter 11 Part 3

I had settled down.

I went to Partner’s hangar. It was getting pretty late.

I admired the giant sword that pierced the battered Arroganz. This black, long sword had probably absorbed a lot of blood up until now.

It seemed to be cursed. I believed it imposed its will onto others.

[Master, why did you bother fighting? If I used my main body, beating the Black Knight would have been a simple feat. I’d like to hear the reason for why you’d take such a risk.]

I suppose that I did voluntarily put my life into danger. Luxon had criticized me, but I thought to myself while looking at the large sword in front of me.

I was indeed possible to erase all of my foes with overwhelming power. However, if that happened, I would have been a mass murderer.

Could I live with that without any trouble? Impossible. I would definitely regret it, and it would surely come to haunt me.

In addition, it would also increase my troubles.

“I suppose it would be easy for you to wipe away the principality’s army in an instant. So, what would happen after that?”

[You would be viewed as a threat, Master. Not just the principality, but the kingdom would also take action. In the worst case scenario, they would try to kill you. I would never let such a thing happen, though.]

At any rate, it would become impossible to remain living the way I had been until now.

I would have to continue fighting, perhaps with no choice but to gain complete control over everything──just like the Holfault Kingdom had been doing.

The other option would be to run away.

“I didn’t want to because it would cause trouble. It a took a lot of effort to get a cheat like you. I’d like to make choices that don’t place a burden on my mental health, though. It’s a matter of my feelings, feelings.”

Also, I didn’t want Luxon to commit a massacre.

It was the next day.

I was on a floating island belonging to the principality, where many broken airships had piled up.

Since robots had done the disassembly work, I had my hands on a large number of floating stones.

──They were all mine.

“Transport the armor too. I’ll take the airships in good condition back home.”

Luxon was floating next to me, it seemed that its favorite position was near my shoulder.

[The gall you have to steal everything, you have no empathy, Master. As expected.]

“I know, right? I’m not that fond of this part of myself either.”

Nearby was a restrained, moustache-less man──Garrett.

He was quite beaten up, but the one who did that wasn’t me.

When we seized him, he had lost consciousness and was in this state.

“Baron Baltfault, if you could, why not return the floating stones?”

I grinned while replying.

“Hmm~, I wonder what I should do? Since our luxury liner had been attacked and destroyed, I’d like to at least collect some of them. Ah~, if a certain group of people hadn’t attacked us, this wouldn’t have happened.”

“I, in that case, formal negotiations between the principality and the kingdom will──gah!”

He made a sound when I violently trampled on the floor.

“And just why should I, the victor, make any compromise?”

“Well, but──”

“It’s fine, right?”

“No, you see──”

“It’s fine, isn’t it?”

“──Y, yes.”

Garrett, whose life or death was in my hands, grimaced in frustration.

“Oh my~, look how kind I am. After all, I’ll let you all off with just this. Generosity is my sin~.”

Luxon was astonished.

[It’s astounding how merciless you are, Master.]

“Isn’t this better than taking the soldiers and enslaving them?”

[You sold off the sky pirates to a viscount family, though.]

“I suppose that’s true. The viscount household had discovered a mine and buying slaves helped them out. They were criminals in the first place. They knew what would happen if they got caught, so they shouldn’t regret the choices they made.”

[Didn’t you say you wanted to help the household?]

“I suppose I said something like that.”

We sold them to the viscount household that my sister had caused trouble for.

From now, the sky pirates would have to work hard for the sake of the people──putting their life on the line!

The manual labor and hard work of the mines were dangerous. They were working in a location that could make even an adult collapse.

I thought of myself as brimming with kindness, considering that I didn’t send the principality’s soldiers to such a place.

However, I was slightly conflicted on the inside.

Even though I had cut down much of the principality’s war potential, would they stop their fighting?

──I really wanted them to let go of the war.

Even though I now had more worries about the future on my mind, I wanted to do something in the kingdom later on after having persevered for this long.

There was a huge pile of broken armor in front of me.

“We’ll have to repair these as well.”

[I don’t mind repairing them, but if I do all of them, then people will start to suspect something. You should entrust this to an armor repair workshop. The best option would be if you owned such a workshop though, Master.]

“That will be impossible to do right away, but it sounds good. I wonder who I should entrust this with.”

[Recently, there seems to be many con artists claiming to specialize in armor production. You’d better be careful when commissioning someone.]

“There were indeed such con artists in the game. What a cruel society.”

Luxon spoke to me.

[Master, we have finished our work. We can withdraw at any time.]

“Right. Now that we’ve stolen what we needed to steal, how about we head home?”

[You almost sounded like a sky pirate there.]

Leaving the floating island, I had stolen the principality’s airships and most of their armor.

I was inside Partner.

After speaking with the luxury liner’s captain and the teachers, I got tired and went back to my room.

In front of the door was a robot acting like a security guard, protecting the room. When I said “I appreciate your efforts,” while trying opening the door──it got in my way.

“Hey, why aren’t you letting me into my own room?”

The robot blocked me from entering the room.

“Just let me through! I’m tired!”

For some reason, the eyes on its head flickered and tried to convey something, but I forcibly tried to enter my room.

Thereupon, Luxon told me what the robot was trying to say.

[Master, there are apparently two people in the──”

When I opened the door, I saw that both Anjie and Livia were lying down on my bed inside the room, facing each other. I could hear their quiet sleeping breaths.

They were sleeping while holding hands.

The sheets were laid out, and it seemed that they had removed their uniforms.

A caretaker robot was floating, ironing their uniforms.

If that was the case, then were they in their underwear beneath the sheets?

The two had cute faces as they slept.

What a precious sight.

──I slowly closed the door.

I then turned my back to the door and slumped down.

“You should’ve told me! Doesn’t this mean I just peeked at them?! Anjie’s papa would kill me!”

As I held my knees under my arms, Luxon explained why the two were in my room.

[It seems that they fell asleep while waiting inside the room. They must have been exhausted.]

They were both lovely.

If I didn’t have the soul of an adult, I might have peered at them.

It was a good thing that I was an adult. However, they should be more careful since men can behave like wolves.

“Where should I sleep?”

Since the students and sailors had evacuated into Partner, I pondered about which rooms could still be vacant.

Thereupon, I heard the sound of footsteps. Someone had approached me and halted, and when I looked, there stood Chris.

“Need something?”

“Baltfault, I want answers. Are you──are you refusing to spar against me in swordsmanship because I can’t win against you?”

What was this guy saying?

He thought I could win against him, as if he was ignoring his talents with the sword? Was he joking?

“What? Is that a joke? Sorry, but it wasn’t funny.”

Chris shook his head. It seemed that he wasn’t convinced of my reply, and interpreted it as he pleased.

“Well, you did beat the Black Knight. I suppose we’re in completely different realms. I can’t measure up to your skills. How humiliating.”

It would have been better if he felt ashamed of the misunderstanding he had.

My victory was because of Arroganz’s ability.

“You’re misunderstanding──”

However, Chris spoke with a face that seemed as if he had renewed his determination.

“I will definitely catch up to you! I’ll become strong enough for you to recognize me. That’s what I came here to say──you are my goal.”

I thought about resolving the misunderstanding as Chris walked away after saying that, but I decided against it since it would be a bother.

It was too late for each and every one of them to mend their ways.

I thought as such while seeing Chris leave.

“Alright, should I force the credit onto him this time?”

“Another ploy?”

How rude it was to call it a ploy.

Everyone would be happier if I wasn’t the one getting promoted.

While thinking about it, I sat down in front of the door and slept.

“Well~, the principality was a strong enemy.”

I was in my own room within the academy.

After finally coming back from the school trip, I laid down on the bed while speaking with Luxon.

[Well said.]

After what happened, I had been questioned about a lot of things.

However, when I showed them the Black Knight’s large sword, I made sure to say “Chris did his best!” to the government official many times.

Everyone else had worked hard as well. I acted as if I had been deeply moved while insisting that I only cooperated.

I wasn’t sure if it was because of that, but this time the country gave a reward to the persevering students.

I heard that everyone would receive medals.

[Was it fine to present the Black Knight’s large sword to them?]

“I don’t want it since it’s cursed to absorb someone’s blood. You’d also be able to prepare something similar to it, right?”

[After having done analysis, it is indeed possible. However, was it necessary to go as far as to present airships and armor as well?]

That was to flatter the royal palace.

I also handed them to Anjie’s papa since I felt guilty after seeing Anjie’s sleeping face.

“It’s fine. There’s still some left. I’ve got some precious floating stones at hand now.”

There was no promotion this time.

It ended with everyone receiving a medal.

[If that’s fine with you, then I don’t mind.]

A lot had happened in this incident.

There was also one thing I had been contemplating.

Before long, I would probably have to go all-out and do my best. It would do well to retrieve Livia’s bracelet and later finish the conflict with the principality.

I had finally resolved myself.

It would be fine if I could remain a mob. However, I wanted to stand beside those two people.

So for that reason, there was a lot I would need to prepare.

        1. worse, the kingdom will never believe those 6 where the main force, especially when they already know that you have taken down a bunch of pirates on your on.

          1. Even more worse, he presented the black knight sword by himself, so there’s no way the royalty will not suspect that Leon brought them down single handily, since if it was Christ merit, then he should’ve brought the sword himself.

    1. Duke will do something behind the scenes because Leon save Duke daughter alone from enemies base… there no way that’s doting father not do something after heard Leon Hero Tale

  1. I’m really surprised that he didn’t get a promotion. After all, he single handedly defeated the principality, while everyone else just tried to stay alive. There are dozens of witnesses who can state that he rescued Anjie, kidnapped the enemy princess, defeated the black knights, and he can bs by saying “Chris did his best”?!

    Press x to doubt, he’s getting promoted whether he likes it or not.

    He’s also going to have a lot more capture targets respect him soon.

    And he’ll have to choose between best grill 1 and best grill 2.

    1. Well, if he gets married to anjie, he can get olivia as a mistress, or at least on paper, remember that leon himself is a mistress son, in truth both would have the same level but for status reasons she is the mistress

    2. He won’t choose, he’ll get them both. They get along so well, after all. And while everyone else testifies of his glory, the word of a baron outweighs literally all of them combined… except for Annie, and Anjie isn’t going to lie. Sorry Leon, but you’re getting promoted, like it or not!

      If you go high enough, maybe you can even get shipped with the queen!

    3. Still an epilogue left. I would say that would be the best place to have Leon’s reaction to getting hit with another promotion.

  2. “You should’ve told me! Doesn’t this mean I just peek at them?! Anjie’s papa would kill me!”

    Would it be peeked instead of peek here?

  3. mate your an absolute mad lad the pace of your translation sometimes makes me think that this is a chinese translation sometimes

  4. Chapter starts with an explaination why MC doesn’t go all edgy genocidal XianXia MC on the enemy. ????????
    Maybe that will satisfy all the comments that Think killing everyone is the ‘smart’ solution.

    1. I don’t think so, to be able to defeat so many enemies, their legendary hero and protect the students without any casualty is an impossible feat, it only made him looked like he’s strong enough to toy with the principality’s army and made fun of them, you’d be more believable if there are some casualties in the enemy side. He’s going to be hailed as s hero whether he liked it or not

    2. Killing everyone definitely would be the smart solution though. Luxon says so as well. But Leon doesn’t prioritize his actions that way.

    3. It won’t because those people are as hardheaded just like the Black Knight and Julian about these things. In their head, killing is good to both erase the problem and show people that you’re not messing around… While also making anyone who is stronger than you in either position/rank or strength be wary about you or downright plotting to murder you so that they don’t have to worry about homicidal maniac running around their general vicinity. In short-term, killing is the best solution while in the long term, as long as you’re not either a sociopath or psychopath, you’re gonna get some serious PTSD. Killing people should be the very last option someone resort to, even more so against someone despicable since you can torture and break them later on rather than granting them quick release of death.

  5. Thanks for the translation!
    So he left Garrett and the soldiers on the Principality’s floating island/airship combo as it was too much bother to take them prisoner, right? Does that include Hertrude and the Black Knight? What’d he do with the flute? Considering Chris, Angie, Deidre, and a whole bunch of other nobles were witnesses to Leon fighting and defeating the Black Knight, not to mention everyone working together to defeat the Principality’s vanguard force I find it hard to believe only medals got passed to everybody. It’s plausible if Kingdom trying to avoid causing panic by keeping the Principality’s declaration of war quiet while working behind the scenes.

    Leon’s an idiot for not realizing the flag he raised by making a large donation at shrine with both of them. 😀 Although I wonder if the masked charm seller and charm woman were more than human considering the effects of the charms, not interested in getting more money than asking price of a charm, and that not only did the charms Leon bought suit the girls perfectly but that the seller knew that too. Along with the charm maker knowing where Leon was to give him the special charm despite not much time passing from when Leon tried to buy the charms to her somehow making the special charm and bringing it to him.

    BTW, should insert color picture of Angie and Livia in Leon’s bed after he realizes they’re there. Speaking of which, I can get curling up in the bed because got sleepy while waiting but considering it was his room what were they thinking getting undressed too? Or were they too tired and hazy to realize implications and were hoping to curl up with him too?

    1. I think that both of them are very much in favour of having a relationship with him, even if they have to share with each other. They were probably of the opinion that if he saw them naked, that was a good thing. They also know he’s way too much of a gentleman to turn into a wolf in that kind of situation, haha.

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

    Looks like Chris following after livia’s footstep.. Livia misunderstood about leon’s magic knowledge too didn’t she?

  7. Now that Leon is getting serious, I expect everything will either start to stand in his way, or force him to fight on the front lines. Either way, he’s not going to like it or be happy for once.

    Thanks for the chapter! You’ve basically achieved the “translation God” title.

    1. I wonder about that too, in the illustrations, I saw Marie got all the Key Items. But how did she get the Key Item that was on Leon’s possession? The one that he took from the Sky Pirate Leader.

      1. Please await the next few chapters, where Leon discovers that his casual mob tendencies backfired and that the scenario completely went to shit when he wasn’t looking.

      2. A few things to Point out based on past info.
        Those ‘relics’ are magic boosting holy equipment and
        1. Thus the Church will have a religious claim on them. Finders keeper won’t apply If Church has any real power.
        2. The Church chooses the candidates for sainthood starting with the (minor) criteria of finding a lost holy relic
        3. The whole set of holy relics are bestowed to the active Saint for however long She serves in the role.
        4. Marie was actively pursuing one of the relic even before Leon realises the plot pacing was accelerated from the recent principality attack.

  8. Thanks for the chapter desu~

    “It was fine if I could remain a mob. However, I wanted to stand beside those two people.”

    At first he wants to distance himself to them, but now he’s not denying Anjie and Livia anymore, what a change of heart Leon. haha

  9. Thanks for the chapter! Looks like Leon is giving up the mob title so he can stay beside the two most important people in his life. I wonder how long it’s going take for him to admit to being a protagonist… I think that the current lack of extra titles might be because a) certain people feel he shouldn’t stand out too much yet, including him b) they might try to use the official story Leon was pushing to try rehabilitating the idiot main leads a bit and c) have a group of plucky students defeat an enemy attack force is good for the kingdom’s morale, and bad for the principality’s.

  10. I knew it, Luxon is the best wifu(?). She will do anything to not hurt her master. I’m sorry but i think the bracelet is already in Marie’s hands, probably.
    Now then, what should he do next to start conquering the queen. No flag was raised. I have no idea what’s going to happen, but there is one thing i need to say, thanks for the chap.
    Can sumbody give me link for raws? I need to sacrifice some brain cells so i can advance read. Thanks fellow leechers.

  11. Thanks for the chap~

    What!? No promotions!? What are chris doing lol, he should do like those two idiots did and angered Leon. Coz that’s the only way to slap Leon in the face! You missed it Chris, you missed your chance to get revenge xD
    Well… At least Leon has resolved now.
    Now then, let’s see if Marie actually got the bracelet from the dungeon

  12. I also feel like many poeple here that Leon might get special reward this time too. Not just the duke himself might work harder to tie Leon to this country, even the queen herself might do something in behind the scene.

    And Leon still said that he was just a mob?

    What kind of mobs that was so OP like him?

    This is very fun. Thank you, translator-san.

    1. Hehehe “mob” that word is such an irony for an already op person. Also who any of you who reads this ln believes that mobs can’t be mcs? Just look at kageyama shigeo of mob psycho 100 his the mc so such thoughts of mobs can’t be mcs in this day and age is already obsolete now mobs are THE MCS now.

  13. Thanks for the chapter 🙂
    I know he doesn’t like to take credit and get promoted and everything, but shouldn’t he be promoting Chris less and Livia more?
    She was actually crucial to everyone’s survival…

    1. well, in his “grand fixing plan”, he plan to shove livia as a saint to the church in one go, so he take the necklace from the pirate in 1st year, and he plan to dive to the dungeon for the bracelet next year, after getting the charm from the studytour, then give both to livia, and the staff on the church will come for themself, and all according to the original storyline (somewhat)

      though the dumbass totally forgot that the other reincarnator totally not acting like mob and totally didn’t care about the true progress of the story

  14. Thanks for the chapter~
    I think Chris has something to give to Leon now as he has given all the claim to him.. perhaps another promotion? I had so much expectations about it.. but nonetheless.. he got to see another precious moment so.. that’s good…

  15. “Since robots had done the disassembly work, I had my hands a large number of floating stones.”
    Shouldn’t this be, “I had my hands on a large number of floating stones”?

  16. Angie betrothal gift UP.

    And it feels like he’s playing a brOtome, earning the respect and loyalty of all the capture targets.

    1. Well… He did beat the game and capture all the targets after all. He already knew how to do it and this time he did it without being fake unlike Marie.

  17. When is he going to realize that he can pursue Anjie and Livia if he show his true powers. Or show dominance to the kingdom. Make a stand that he is the strongest they have. This Mob mentality of him is starting to get on my nerves.

  18. Thanks for the chapter!

    Now will the delusional “mob” still think that mobs can’t be mcs? Or will he finally see that everyone one is a mob in someone else’s life? Only time will tell…. or when the author chooses to.

    Leecher here~
    Signing off~

  19. Ty for the chapters!But why there is no illustration of the 2 girls sleeping in the bed with only panties on common!Why can’t u think in fan service thinking!Make the artist do it now!!! damn it noww!! and make it a wallpaper so i put it on my damn screen!
