The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs

The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs v3 Chapter 5 Part 1

False Saint

I was in the dungeon.

Once the jailer temporarily excused himself, I began recalling the guests who have visited so far.

They were pretty much the bad kind of people to be around. They said things like how they’d give me money if I told them how to operate Partner, that I should join their group, or other things like that. At any rate, they were harsh people.

Many of them threatened to kill me if I didn’t do what they said.

Luxon was amazed as well.

[I suppose you can’t do anything about the suspicious nobles offering to spare your life in exchange for Partner and Arroganz, can you?]

“I suppose not. Many of them are just lying and would kill me as soon as I transfer them over.”

They’ve confiscated Partner and Arroganz, but are troubled since they can’t operate them.

They’ve been asking me how to operate them, and I’ve been questioning their intentions.

[It seems that they attempted a disassembly, but gave up midway. It’s sad how cruelly they’re treating Partner. Master, how about we lay waste to this kingdom?]

“Rejected.”

[Then, let’s restrict the ruling class──]

“No thanks.”

Arroganz is in a container that can’t be tampered with.

They’ve invaded Partner’s interior quite a bit, but it’s impossible for them to dismantle the important parts.

[Master, is the reason that you won’t abandon the kingdom related to Anjelica, Olivia──and Milaine as well? I believe that Clarice and Deirdre are also on your mind, but do you want to protect the kingdom because they’re part of the ruling class? I would recommend an internal reform.]

Is it thinking that I want to protect the kingdom because there are women I favor?

Needless to say, that’s not the case and I don’t plan on an internal reform either.

“You really think I want to protect the kingdom?”

[Am I wrong?]

Speaking truthfully, I wouldn’t care if the kingdom was destroyed.

The reason why I want it intact for now is because the citizens will be in deep water without a country.

Without a ruler, they’ll be in trouble.

“I have no interest in the management of a nation. If I were to destroy the country, the ones who would be in trouble are the people who live there. That’s not something a guy would do unless he really wanted to.”

[Are you sure about that? In the event that Milaine and the duke’s faction fails, you will be executed, Master. Of course, I won’t let that happen. However, why aren’t you taking any initiative?]

“──If the country discards me, then I will just flee.”

Fortunately, the kingdom has a hold over Hertrude and the magic flute.

They won’t lose unless those conditions are taken away.

There will probably be some damage in the process, but that’s what it means to be a kingdom.

[Then, why don’t you take action for the sake of the people?]

“Nobody wants me to.”

In this world, war is not about gathering citizens and handing weapons to them.

In order to turn citizens into soldiers, a sufficient education is needed.

Due to the existence of airships, it’s difficult to recruit ordinary citizens.

There are indeed some feudal lords who are tyrannical enough to force that into happening, but the Holfault Kingdom is relatively friendly to its people.

This is the only kind part of that otome game’s setting.

As a result, there are few citizens who are dissatisfied.

Knights and soldiers having to be the pawns of war and the troubles of finding marriage are part of the ruling class’ struggles.

There’s dissatisfaction just about everywhere, but the most dissatisfied ones are the baron and viscount nobles that I have to put up with──what a disgusting world.

Simply put, even if there was a revolt, the citizens wouldn’t join.

After all, they’re satisfied with the status quo, so I would be the scoundrel here if I were to act violently.

“Despite how things may seem, I’m still a knight.”

[By knight, you mean an existence who sucks up to women and is convenient to the nation?]

“Idiot. ──I meant the kind of knight that protects the citizens.”

[Is that how they appear as?]

“I’m fine with appearances and superficiality. It’s better than being controlled by a schoolgirl and having to work myself to the bone for the kingdom. Besides, Livia would be happy to hear me say that.”

Anjie would make a bit of a troubled face though.

[Quite the weak determination you have. I was even a bit touched, but now that’s gone to waste.]

“What are you expecting of me? Or rather, what do you want me to do?”

Actually, I’m quite surprised that it was touched by that conversation.

[I’m hoping that we can destroy the new humans together.]

──I don’t know what kind of reaction I should make to that.

Now then, I’ve been in jail for a while, but──yet another visitor came today.

“How pathetic, Viscount Baltfault.”

Beyond the iron bars, Jilk stood in front of me while shaking his head.

“Did you come to the dungeon to make snide remarks? It seems that you have some free time as well.”

When I said that, Jilk threw out his chest, as if I said something unthinkable.

“I came here at the request of Marie. It seems that she wants to help you.”

“Marie? What kind of trap is this?”

“How rude. What kind of attitude is that? I took great pains to come here and help you.”

Jilk spoke to me.

“For the time being, please wait here. I’ll soon get you out of the dungeon.”

“You will?”

Does he even have that kind of authority? At any rate, why is Marie helping me?

Though I had many thoughts, the question I spoke was──

“How are you going to help me?”

“Despite everything, my house still consists of nobles of the royal court. I have many connections.”

“That’s not your own power, but the power of your household, isn’t it?”

“What of it? Anyways, please sit tight and wait here.”

Jilk left the dungeon as he said that, but──after a while, he came back quite battered.

His hair was disheveled and it seemed as if he had been in a fight.

“──I failed.”

“Thought so.”

“T, this isn’t right. They wouldn’t listen to me and told me to reflect on my actions!”

That’s because you’re always up to no good.

In the end, Jilk left the dungeon with hunched shoulders.

What a useless guy.

The next to visit was──Greg.

He was even more battered than Jilk. His clothes were torn and his face showed signs of being beaten up, perhaps from a fight.

“──I’m sorry. When I asked my household to free you, I got into a fight with my father.”

It seems that he relied on his household in an attempt to free me, but he failed after getting into a quarrel with his father.

“Did Marie ask you too?”

“She did. Moreover, I’m personally indebted to you. So I wanted to help you, but my father beat me up and nothing happened.”

I’ve got mixed feelings, but I’m glad that he tried to help.

“Go apologize to your dad. You guys cause too much trouble.”

Greg stared straight at me.

“Something the matter?”

“Baltfault──you’re the last person I’d want to hear that from.”

“Huh? What?!”

I was a fool for thinking that this jerk had some good in him.

The next guest was──Brad.

Unlike the last two, his uniform wasn’t in a mess and it didn’t seem like he got into a fight.

However, he was fiddling with his hair while──seeming slightly uneasy.

“Are you here to help me as well?”

Since he didn’t speak despite how much time had passed, I decided to initiate the conversation.

Upon which, Brad spoke while his eyes were darting.

“T, that was the plan, but──I can’t get in contact with my parents.”

“Did something happen?”

“My family wasn’t in the Field residence within the royal capital. Due to that──”

He told me that despite wanting to help me, the family he depended on wasn’t there.

“I understand, so stop looking like you’re going to cry.”

“I, I’m not crying!”

What is it that these guys want to do?

Then, the fourth member of the five idiots, Chris, entered the dungeon.

“──Did you turn to your household in an attempt to help me as well?”

When I asked that to Chris upon his immediate arrival, he made a face of astonishment.

“Y, you know that? I didn’t even say anything yet.”

Is he making fun of me? Or is it that he’s just stupid?

“Like it or not, I know that you guys have been coming here since this morning and have all failed so far.”

“Everyone’s been here too? In that case, at least one person should succeed. I──failed. I’m sorry, Baltfault.”

Chris was depressed, but as for me──

“Before you feel down, why don’t you take care of your injuries first? What did you even do to get all beaten up like that?”

Greg’s state had been miserable, but Chris’ was even worse.

Even the lenses of his glasses were broken.

“When I tried asking my father for help, he chased me around with a wooden sword.”

“It seems you’ve got it rough too.”

“Come to think of it, I couldn’t really expect much from my father in the political field to begin with.”

Perhaps having calmed down, Chris began to complain after getting beaten up by his father.

──Why did this guy come to the dungeon?

“Though he’s called a master swordsman, my father holds the position of a swordsmanship instructor. Since he has no major political position, I figured that it would tough having him to help you.”

“I, Is that so?”

“He dismissed the many reasons I gave to him, and when I then said ‘Can’t you do it?’ to him, I ended up like this.”

That would anger my father too if I did that.

Perhaps he wanted to pick a fight with his household?

“If it’s impossible for him, I wish he would have just told me that.”

“Did you tell him to help me with that attitude? In the first place, I’m uncertain about why you would want to help me.”

I wonder if his father is also frustrated with his political position?

If he struck a nerve with his father due to that, that would explain it.

──Then came the last idiot.

Julian appeared in front of me, but I spoke before he could open his mouth.

“Go home!”

“W, why?! I didn’t say anything yet!”

I told the baffled Julian that I already knew the situation without him needing to spell it out for me.

“I can already tell after seeing your cheek. You didn’t succeed in your attempt to help me, did you?”

Julian’s mood visibly worsened.

“It’s as you say. I asked my mother to get you out of the dungeon.”

There was a visible handprint on Julian’s cheek, perhaps from being slapped.

It’s quite a feat for him to make Milaine mad.

Actually, now I want to know what he did.

“And that was enough for her to slap you?”

“Yeah, that’s all. She was suddenly astonished. What’s even more frightening is that she hit me while holding a blank expression.”

“I can’t imagine her being the kind of person to do that.”

“Perhaps you don’t know this, but my mother is a scary individual. But, just what in the world did I do wrong? You’re a favorite of my mother, so it’s strange that asking for your release would warrant a slap.”

I want to tell him that it was his mother that put me in this dungeon.

However, that’s top-secret.

The fact that Milaine didn’t speak to him about this matter means that he’s definitely not a reliable person.

──That’s kind of pitiful.

Though, I suppose he doesn’t have the most pristine reputation.

It wouldn’t be odd for him to do something absurd, like during that time he cancelled his engagement with Anjie.

“You must have said something strange, didn’t you?”

“I did not! Right from the beginning, she had a complex expression when I requested for your release. So, I thought that I could give her a push and said some things to her.”

“Some things?”

“Well, you know that there have been talks of a formal engagement between Marie and me since she became the saint, right?”

In response to this sudden change of topic, I told him that I knew about it.

──I’ve got a bad feeling about this.

“When I told her that it was the request of her potential daughter-in-law, her facial expression turned blank. I had thought that it would be a good opportunity for them to cooperate and get along.”

──That would do it. Her expression would definitely turn blank from that.

Did you think Milaine would be pleased with that?

Are you stupid? Oh wait, he is stupid.

“Go home already.”

“I’ll head back for today. However, I’ll definitely help you, Baltfault.”

I looked at Julian, who left while declaring that with a serious look, and thought about how this must be a pain for Milaine as well.

Luxon, who had hidden itself, reappeared and spoke.

[What is it that they wanted to do?]

“They’re fools, aren’t they?”

[I think of you the same way, Master.]

“Don’t lump me in with them. You’ll make me mad.”

“Pardon me. You’re a greater fool than them.]

“You really do hate me, don’t you?”

[Anyways, it seems that things have gotten troublesome, Master.]

“Troublesome?”

There was a conference room within the royal palace.

Marquis Frampton’s faction had gathered there.

An uneasy noble asked Marquis Frampton a question.

“Marquis, is this really alright? Our information states that the principality has assembled a large fleet accompanied by monsters, does it not? At this rate, the feudal lords who encounter them during their invasion will suffer a miserable──”

──The principality’s troops had begun to move.

Receiving that information, the members had gathered here to talk about measures to take.

“This is indeed earlier than expected, but there’s no problem. Hurry and assemble the kingdom’s troops.”

“Shouldn’t we dispatch units that can quickly take action?”

Marquis Frampton spoke to the noble who imagined that a tragedy was brewing.

“That won’t be necessary.”

“Huh?”

“The territories that the principality is invading are the ones that we secretly agreed to give them. If the principality sheathes their sword becomes our ally from this, it’s a small price to pay.”

“H, however, this is a matter beyond our grasp. If we don’t handle this with caution──”

Not only the nobles, but the citizens as well weren’t sure about what would happen.

Despite such conditions, Marquis Frampton responded.

“This is a necessary sacrifice for the sake of unifying the kingdom. You know, we have a new lost item, a ship, with us. Once we finish analyzing it, we can eventually regain the territories we will lose.”

──They made a sacrifice.

“Until the kingdom’s army assembles and arrives, let the principality do what they want. When the time comes for us to fight, the principality should retreat at a convenient moment. With that, the kingdom’s honor will remain untarnished.”

They had already abandoned the feudal lords and didn’t mind the principality.

Another noble informed Marquis Frampton of something.

“Marquis, the temple has stated that they would like the saint to participate in the battle as well.”

“──What a nuisance they are.”

“It seems that the saint has the power to repel demons.”

“The saint’s power? I’ve heard about it, but is it really something we can place our faith in?”

“The temple’s quite confident in it. It seems that they’re not bluffing.”

Marquis Frampton wasn’t very happy about the temple’s participation.

However, the temple gave its conditions.

“If we let the temple take the main lead in this war──they will give up on trying to make his Highness Julian the crown prince.”

After hearing that, Marquis Frampton pondered.

(Does the temple plan on increasing its influence by making the saint’s power known?)

“──We should be prepared in case the principality doesn’t retreat.”

“Indeed. After hearing the rumors of the principality controlling monsters, the soldiers are frightened. If the saint is there, it would increase morale.”

“If we can resolve this issue without any problems, my position will solidify. It isn’t bad to let the temple take the credit for it and have them be indebted to me either.”

While the invaded territories were in trouble, the nobles in the royal palace were excited about the future.

        1. *blush*
          Thanks for noticing my comments~

          As for recommendation, the ones i really like recently are:
          Dominion’s end
          The S-classes that i raised
          Infinity armament

          1. I steal this person’s recommendations at random…

            Pstd: I’m glad the translator is back, I love this story and I like your translation. Even if I have to wait months, everything is better than abandoning it! Translator you have my appreciation… It is the only thing I can give you, since I am poor… Hahahaha. Thank you

    1. Thats fine. As long as you don’t die like my friend.
      Pussyslayer410. Last login 12 years. May he rest in piece. Or explode as an raijuu.

    2. You’re still translating though right? Then don’t sweat about it though do show us more of Leons greatness

    3. Your IRL stuff takes priority. Thanks for the work! This came out on my birthday, too; real pleasant surprise. Hope you’re doing well!

    4. Wow, you really have it hard there… my condolence for you…

      Somehow I can sympathize with you with your IRL things just like how hard the boys in this novel finding marriage partner.

    5. Wow, you really have it hard there… my condolence…

      Somehow I can sympathize with you and your IRL stuff just like the boys in this novel finding their marriage partner.

    6. thanks for the chapter!
      it’s fine for the delay, you can fix your IRL stuffs first. as it’s more important
      we’ll wait for the nightmare that will be brought by leon to those nobles

    7. Dude its okay I’m grateful for this new chapter, lemme say this to you, thank you, thank your for translating this novel I’m a big fan of yours from Indonesia, I’ll be looking forward your for your next chapter

    8. IRL is suckware 😉

      I can’t believe they make us use this if we want to access anything else.

      We’re always just happy that you share the Mobs love with us.

    9. No need to apologize the translation is appreciated! New reader here, this is really good work and easy to read well done i look forward to the next update.

    10. I’m just glad we got a new chapter, take all the time you need. please dont drop this light novel, best read I’ve had in a real long time

    1. I gotta say, the I̶d̶i̶o̶t̶ *cough* *cough* Bishounen 5 are really dumb in so many levels I can’t describe and good luck to Marie in that invasion since she can’t use the saint powers due to being a fake……………

      1. She’s effectively usurped the saint’s position due to liking what comes with it.
        And she’s assuming she can do Saintly things.

    1. I understand you don’t like JP honorifics but could you use EN honorific since you said you want to make otome TL as close to proper translation as possible.

      Dont get me wrong, I really grateful for your works but reading TL without any kind of honorific is kind of weird.

      And thanks for new chapter translation.

  1. Interesting how the story is progressing. If Leon wasn’t such of pussy he could’ve resolved himself to annihilate the clrrupt noble faction if he truly wanted to help the citizens of the kingdom.

    1. more like a lazy procrastinator. if he trained like any normal isekai reincarnator, he could have at least gained healing magic like someone else we know.

      1. Funny thing is, Leon DID train hard……..right up until the point where he got his cheat item. Because literally that was the only reason he bothered trying. Just so he could get something stupidly OP that would allow him to coast through the rest of his life doing whatever he felt like………………

        I guess you could consider that working smarter not harder………………I mean, maybe……………

    2. Well, if he were the kind of person who was going to go out and overthrow the entire system, he would have done it immediately after getting Luxor.

      And he’s basically right. Luxor wants him to exterminate the New Humans, which is basically everyone but the elves at this point. But the injustice of this society is pretty focused on the line military grades. That’s incredibly stupid, has already caused the defection and reformation of an enemy nation, and is imminently bringing about the defeat and overthrow of the Kingdom, but if you think about it in terms of what’s worst for the most people, starting an internal revolt using Luxor is not a great alternative.

      The best option from a moral and strategic standpoint (accepting respect for the lives and good opinions of the most people) is to ride out the farce and simply flee if things get too dangerous.

      It’s not what I would do. I think that a public that disses their line military basically deserves what they’ll inevitably get as a result. I have no problem delivering it more expeditiously and getting blamed as a result. But I also would see that as a futile exercise in self-satisfaction on my part, it doesn’t change what happens, it just is more fun for me.

      Leon had plenty of fun with that shovel. He’s actually kinda funned out, given how he planned to throw the second match and only didn’t because he wanted to avert his opponent’s fiery death. He’s basically a nice guy.

      A girl (or several) could do worse.

  2. Looks like things aren’t really progressing all that much in the storh, so its understandable that you took a break from translating this combined with your IRL stuff.

    Nevertheless, the shaudenfreudian beat down of the idiot brigade one after the other was highly amusing, and I’m looking forward to more, whenever you feel like translating the next part.

    Thank you for the chapter!

  3. Hello, I am Brazilian and I follow this work thanks to your work, I am very grateful to have translated again and hope I can read other works posted by you

  4. seriously…. none of those noble even suspect that marquis a traitor ?? truly…. their brain almost non-existant…. idiots *sigh*

    1. Didn’t he say something to his faction about how “those territories are the one’s we’ve secretly agreed to give the principality” or something? In which case they’re all traitors, not just him. Its just that they’re all stupid enough to believe that the principality won’t betray them, even though they’ve removed the only check on their behavior by confiscating overpowered tech from the one person who could use it.

      1. the noble i was refering to was the opposite faction of this marquis, dunno why they didnt suspect something from conversation the marquis saying by secretly giving to principality

  5. Oh, hey, I was thinking about this series and you today thanks to the new manga chapter.

    Thanks for the chapter.

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

    Lol.. so thats why marie wanted to get Mc out of prison that badly.. she’s asking him to save her from being found out.

    1. Uh….no. She’s doing it because she told Anjie and Livia that she would if they did something humiliating which she thought they wouldn’t do……………………..and then they did, so now she’s obligated. Even though she’s the only one who realizes that Leon could bust out whenever he felt like it.

  7. Welkum bek..
    Miss those 3 (Angela, Livia and Clarice).. The 3 bebeautiful ladies and Leon ‘s wife candidates

    1. Bro, i think what you mean is 4. Don’t forget to count Millaine in there! She is the best heroine after all.

        1. Well, apparently the LN is going to make significant changes starting from Volume 4, so maybe that will change? Who knows.

          1. Based on the others comments, he will likely to study abroad in another kingdom, so he will be likely not going to meet them for a while..
            But on the another translation i read yesterday, Clarice senpai’s father tell Leon about his wish for him to dating his daughter..
            Well, we will see some interesting progress..

  8. Thanks for the translation.

    I’ll admit it’s hard waiting for new chapters, but I can bear it. So long as you’re committed to translating this I’m not gonna complain much.

  9. better late than never mate. I was this close to think you were dead tho
    thx for being alive and translating

  10. Thank you! Glad to see you back. Take it easy and dont burn out. I really look forward to mew chapters of this series.

  11. Thanks for the chapt! Dont push yourself to hard, and stay healthy.


    We need more Millaine scene!! Tbh i like her character even if you compared her with Anjie/Livia.

  12. It was totally worth the wait. Hope everything is going well for you in all aspects, to do as much translating as you already have is amazing. Thank you so much.

  13. What we have here is a good old fashioned gambit pileup. You can just see where it all starts to go wrong. I gotta get some popcorn.

  14. Very grateful for the translation, hope you could keep up the good work. Hope for the best too for your IRL condition.

    1. Spoiler
      Didn’t know that Noel is quite hot, but what I didn’t expect that she’s a gal type. I thought she was supposed to be timid and shy.

        1. Spoiler
          Yeah it seemed that the LN change things from WN. As you said that there’s a new original character in volume four. One of my acquaintance said there’s a new villainess character in the 2nd otome game since in the WN, there’s no villainess, only the heroine. This change things.

            1. Spoiler
              If you’re talking about LN, she already appeared in the latest volume. Volume 4 was already released on Aug 30th, 2019. While in the WN, she became one of the Leon’s fiancee.

      1. Judging by that glomp……….she probably finds out and has an emotional breakdown when confronted by the only person who ever ACTUALLY gave two shits about her existence.

  15. Spoiler
    Yeah it seemed that the LN change things from WN. As you said that there’s a new original character in volume four. One of my acquaintance said there’s a new villainess character in the 2nd otome game since in the WN, there’s no villainess, only the heroine. This change things.

  16. Guys, we got news from the author about the Light Novel.

    Spoiler
    According to Mishima Yomu’s recent activity report, Otome Mob’s story will go on a different route from the WN; starting from Vol 4. Looks like the LN will be diverging from the WN so expect major changes.

    4巻はWebから大幅改稿なので、既読の読者さんも楽しんでもらえると思います。

    Web版とは内容が変わってきますので、Web版を読んでも大丈夫ですけどね。

    書籍版は4巻から別ルートに入らせていただきます。

      1. Yeah, the LN change the event and added a lot compare WN that we know. Expect Leon making a different choice.

          1. All I know is that Luxon ship Leon and Marie and want them too have children together in the WN, because they both have old human blood in them. Also in the IF Route of the WN, Marie was the heroine because Leon stop her plan to take Olivia spot as the heroine of the first game.

    1. Three days? Hah~
      I only need one day whahahahaha…
      Anyway, sorry for me speaking weirdly…
      I was quite shocked to see that u didn’t discover this novel more sooner…
      Considering that u r everywhere…

      1. Reason: backlog, and also borrowed my friend’s switch and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 that’s why it took 3 days, and also blame Azur Lane for farming.

        I have too many new bookmarked novels that I haven’t even nepu’ed yet and this is one of them.

  17. Thanks for the chapter desu~

    [Master, is the reason that you won’t abandon the kingdom related to Anjelica, Olivia──and Milaine as well? I believe that Clarice and Deirdre are also on your mind, but do you want to protect the kingdom because they’re part of the ruling class? I would recommend an internal reform.]

    – Bullseye~ No matter how much you deny it Leon they’re the reason now why you’re hesitating to go Hahahaha

    1. That’s the webnovel not the Light novel, and since it is confirmed by twitter, the LN will have a different story compared to the webnovel.

        1. Since its online and not found on physical media (ie book), its the webnovel and vol 4 of the LN just came out recently.

  18. At last! I’ve reached the current pit-stop!
    Thank you for the chapters!!!
    This has gotten interesting ehh…
    I wonder when will our greatest mob goes out from his shell…
    “A man who can’t make a decision… For himself”

  19. PLS don’t give up you’re the only translator who translates this novel and I want to see how they marry T-T

    Angie is waifu

  20. Cómo se pronuncia
    Please you can follow the translation, don’t leave it, you are the hero of thousands or tens of thousands of people who hope to enjoy your translations

  21. Call me heartless or dumb for not seeing the bigger picture, but really, I’m starting to agree with Luxon, alot. Spill some blood already.

    1. It not until volume 5 in the WN does Leon spill blood/kill someone to save Olivia and then he nearly destroy the Kingdom from the second game and have Luxon kill a lot of people. He then get PTSD, until Olivia and Angie have sex with him.

  22. [Then, why don’t you take action for the sake of the people?]

    “Nobody wants me to.”

    So what!!! No one asks you to be Angie’s representative. No asks you to befriend Livia. He’s so deep in this that he stills claims to a mob. Why he doesn’t want an internal reform? He doesn’t care about the kingdom but he will protect it so the people won’t be troubled? What? It’s strange that he cares because throughout the entire series, most of his interactions and conflicts are with nobles. I hope the kingdom falls apart.

    I feel like Luxom was created to be the readers’ mouthpiece, like I agree with nearly everything he said. It’s quite common that MCs who wants to be on the down-low always does something to bring infamy or fame onto himself. And, they don’t reflect on it and still complains that he doesn’t want to be on the spotlight.

    Whew. I need that to get off my chest. Really, I like this series but boy.

    Also, thanks for chapter. i really hope the translation continues.

    1. Unfortunately, this is how most Japanese protagonists are. They value life even scum and at most will allow the law to punish them. Most of them are unwilling to see blood, acts naive and kind and always does something that makes them stick out that usually involves trouble yet they claim to not care or that wasn’t their intention and get pushed around.

      Leon is no exception except for a few differences in character. However, he does spill blood later on just don’t expect him to do it again anytime soon.

    1. Unfortunately, the LN is diverting from the WN as the author stated. So, I’d rather read the new route of the LN and not the WN that I’ve heard quite a few people complain about.

  23. Did the author dropped this novel and move on to anything but translating? It’s been quite a while already……

  24. I feel happy, you feel happy?

    Still waiting for the great return! Hope you are doing great.

    Also, greettings from Mexico!
    Regards,
    Alan B.

  25. thank you for the translation

    also if you really dropped this LN, i think you should talk to bakapervert
    maybe he gonna translate this LN because he kinda interested in this LN iirc

  26. Going by previous patterns, he’ll likely drop either a status update or chapter at the end of the month. It has almost always been exactly 1 month when he disappears without word.

  27. Thanks for the translation but dude if the RL is too much to still continue translation try asking baka pervert to help you translate this novel he was very interested in translate this novel so give us a signal if you are still alive😟

  28. If youre not going to translate it anymore, can you straight out say it and drop it already ? as much as i like this novel and wouldnt want it to be droped, its anoying a heck coming here to not even find an anouncment or anything alike, theres no linked social media so we cant even tell if youre sick or not, at this point we all know youre tired of this anyways and youre not motivated anymore to continue, so why push yourself ?

  29. im dying here…when will this be updated? IRL Stuff must be really harsh, but hoping for an update at least of when you plan on continuing it. I look up to this site almost everyday, refreshing to see if there is an update.

  30. Hope the 2Slow2Late translator is alright. It is normal for RL to pick up a pace or lose some motivation on the novel. But at least please give tell us what’s going on or an OK for other translator to pick up the project.

  31. You could tell if you continue with the novel, if you cannot by IRL any other page you could drop it but you must notify

  32. You probably don’t want to translate this anymore and that is OK.

    Or you had a meeting with Truck-Kun and got isekai’d into a world with your own harem; that is cool too.

    ….Actually can we switch places if the later is true?

  33. If the translator is a man, maybe he gave a birth to his baby so he took an extra holidays..
    If the translator is a female, maybe she gave the baby the male translator gave birth a breast feeding so she took another holidays too..

    Just keep positive thoughts like me guys..

  34. The length of comments is already more than thrice of the translated chapter. So pleaae come back soon translater-sama.

    1. Really? Hope the translators could just make an official announcement if he really drops it so other groups could try translating it or they might wait for 3 months rule.

  35. Hi dude,
    I miss you man, are you okay? You are a great dude, hope you know that.

    All those chappys you provided from the good of your heart before really meant a lot to me.
    If you are still feeling unmotivated, don’t force yourself to come back or continue this project, just enjoy life.

    If you ever make a paypal or something, I’ll be sure to drop a coffe in there.
    Best Regards,
    Alan B.

  36. Give us the announcement of your drops statuses so another translator could pick up this novel or give us damn update already..

    Just go and read in Indonesian translation and successfully makes my brains dancing to the grave, asking about my sanity..

    Or at least, give me the raw files or link..

  37. I really like the novel and the translations of this translator. But this is too much already 😔.
    Why do great novels had to be translated by those who doesn’t care about their readers. At least give us an announcement that you are going to be away for days or weeks man. Please don’t get our hopes up by telling us you are back, translate a single part, then gone again.
    This is pretty sad. I hope someone else will translate it soon.

  38. Hey there 2slow2latemtl, hoping you’re doing alright. It’s been a month with no word so I hope everything’s fine. At best I’m hoping that you only switched to doing monthly updates, and at worst you’ve lost all motivation and have silently abandoned us. Please say it ain’t so, you’re one of the few translators whose work I really like.

  39. It’s been awhile since we’ve heard from you. While I know that irl stuff has been going on. I really hope you’re not gonna abandon your readers silently. I love your translations. And if you lost motivation then get some rest and announce it. Hopefully you’ve been doing okay. I want to read more of this novel. And so do others.

  40. Oh crap, when i read the raw files, i got addicted.. Hahaha..
    The translation on chrome is pretty good, but still needs some self translation too..
    Now the raw is on last arc, from total 7 arc including the last chapter arc..

  41. Damn that was good. I was skeptical to try this but I ran out of other novels and it was really good.
    P.S. may I know if their will be monthly or bimonthly from now on? So I don’t check novelupdate every other day.

  42. Thank you so much for the chapter and translating!!!

    BTW, not to be rude but when’s part two coming?

    I’m feeling empty inside because I love this series so much. Though I finished what was translated in the LN a few days ago and it took me 4 hours at most… Also, how different is the WN to the LN?
