The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs

The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs v2 Chapter 6 Part 3

Livia sat down where she was.

Before her, both Brad and Greg had collapsed in face of the sky pirate leader’s armor.

“D, damn it.”

“Why is it so big, yet so effective?”

Both were still alive. However, they could hardly get up.

The leader of the sky pirates shouldered a large hatchet while reaching towards Livia with his left hand.

“That took a while. Lady, you’re our hostage.”

Livia realized that she would be used as hostage against Leon, and attempted to run away. Thereupon, the sky pirates’ leader thrust his large hatchet into Brad’s armor.

“──Gah!”

Brad raised his voice in pain.

“Brad!”

A muffled voice came out from within the leader’s armor.

“If you run away, I’ll kill them. Now then, come here at once.”

With quivering feet, Livia walked towards the leader’s armor, whose hand was reaching towards her. She couldn’t bear to see Brad.

She felt ashamed of herself for having that happen.

(I’m…a burden. I’ve only been causing trouble for everyone.)

When she shed tears in frustration, the sky pirates’ leader, who was there just a moment ago, was blown away.

A gust of wind blew through Livia’s hair and clothes. The cause of that gust was a grey armor.

“Leon!”

Livia made a delightful cheer, but her expression soon muddied.

“──Huh?”

Leon’s Arroganz, holding large hatchets in each hand, severed the arms of the opponent.

Arroganz had its own silly charm when it used a shovel during the duel with Julian and the others, but the armor in front of her now looked sinister.

Arroganz was built for fighting, and when seeing the armor fulfilling that purpose, Livia’s smile changed into shock.

“Don’t. Leon, don’t!”

Leon swung both of his arms alternately, toying with the sky pirates’ leader. His armor gradually being shaved away, the leader made a scream of horror.

“H, help! I surrender. I said I surrender!”

Leon smiled.

“Surrender? Hey hey, don’t you think that’s boring for an infamous sky pirate? You should show more resistance until the very end. C’mon, show me some spirit!”

He trampled down on the armor. He trampled down on it numerous times, causing the leader to cry and beg for his life.

“Help me, please! I beg you. Help!”

“Don’t you think you’re asking for too much after going on an utter rampage? You’re supposed to tell your subordinates to surrender first, right? C’mon, do it quick or else you just might up and die!”

Leon treated the leader of the sky pirates, who had just before fought Brad and Greg with ease, like a small fry.

At the command of the leader, the sky pirates proclaimed their surrender. However, Leon destroyed the leader’s armor. Arroganz tore away the opponent’s armor and ripped away its important skeletal frame.

Seeing that, Livia thought of it as frightening.

Arroganz then stuffed its hand into the abdomen of its opponent’s armor, and pulled something out.

Leon grinned when seeing what he took out.

“I~found~it.”

The leader of the sky pirates spoke in a sorrowful tone.

“G, give that back! That’s the precious──”

“Don’t you get it? It’s not yours. It’s mine starting today! If you’ve got a complaint, then come at me!”

Arroganz kicked the armor as if no longer interested in it, and sent it rolling across the deck.

The leader made a groan, but seemed to be alive.

There was black smoke coming from the airships of the sky pirates, perhaps from Leon’s doing. They were somehow keeping afloat, and some of the sky pirates attempted to escape by hopping onto small boats.

Most of the armor had fallen and were floating on the sea. In case of a fall, armor had lifebuoy-like objects attached to them. They decompressed and floated on top of the sea.

Sky pirates got out of their armor, and looked up into the sky with looks of despair.

Livia, remembering that Brad had been hurt, rushed over towards his armor in order to check his injuries.

“I, I’ll get you medically treated right away.”

Brad, appearing from within the armor, had a cold sweat and seemed to be in pain.

However, he made a forced smile in front of Livia.

“Th, thank you.”

“No, it’s my fault that you got inj──”

“That’s not it.”

“Huh?”

“Greg and I both knew what we were getting into. We fought to protect you. After all, we’re aiming to become knights. If a knight isn’t kind towards woman──ah, that hurts!”

While healing Brad’s injured arm, Livia felt relieved to hear that he didn’t bear a grudge against her. At the same time, she also felt terribly pathetic.

When she put her hand over Brad’s wounds, a magical light came out and healed them. Brad was impressed when he saw the injuries neatly disappearing.

“It seems that you’re good at healing magic, like Marie. You’ve been a great help.”

Livia asked a question in response to that.

“Marie also works with healing magic?”

Since there were few people who could use healing magic, Marie seemed to be a valuable person.

Brad smiled while boasting.

“Yep, she’s our goddess. Any wound is a cinch as long as Marie──」

As he was speaking, Brad lost consciousness from being in relief.

Leon came out from Arroganz while looking at Livia applying a handkerchief over Brad’s wounds.

“Leon. U, um!”

Before Livia could say anything, Leon smiled.

However, it seemed sad to Livia.

“This suits you well. After all, anything is supposed return to how it should be.”

She wondered what he was talking about.

When Livia tried to get up, Leon turned towards Greg. Once he got out of his armor, he didn’t have any injuries.

Leon spoke to Greg with a smile.

“I appreciate your efforts. Say, aren’t you pretty strong?”

“Was that supposed to be sarcastic? Leaving that aside──sorry, I broke the armor I borrowed from you.”

“It’s fine. I have more. Anyways, can you help carry Brad?”

“Is he okay?”

Leon spoke towards Greg, who was worried about Brad.

“Don’t worry. His injuries were healed by ‘Olivia.'”

Livia tightly grasped her chest with her hand.

──Her heart felt like it was in terrible pain.

It hurt to the point that she felt like clutching her heart.

She got up and tried to shout something, but her voice couldn’t come out. As Leon passed by Livia in such a state, he didn’t even make eye contact with her.

Once he and Greg got Brad fully out of his armor, robots came carrying a stretcher which they put Brad onto.

When the three returned to the airship’s interior, Livia began crying.

“Why? ──Call me Livia.”

She collapsed down and continued crying.

The sky pirates’ treasure was in front of me, but I had no interest in it.

I tossed the treasure I took from the sky pirates into one of the warehouses in Partner.

Even though I found some nostalgic items from the game in addition to gold and silver treasure, I soon parted with them.

“I’ve stashed a lot.”

Luxon responded while floating beside me.

[I don’t foresee getting that remuneration from the Wein household, but you can get rewards from the destruction of a sky pirate group and the capturing of their leader. Going by the standards for the kingdom, it will be quite the fortune.]

I wasn’t interested at this point.

What could I even do with such a large amount of money?

It was all pointless.

“I suppose I could buy a new tea set. I’ve got no clue on what to do with the rest.”

What was on my mind was that image of Greg and Brad protecting Livia──Olivia. That was how it ideally should be, but there was a strange discord in my heart.

I turned towards Luxon.

“Hey, did you find evidence that links the earl household with the sky pirates?”

[Indeed. I’ve found several documents with interactions between them.]

“Should we tell the royal palace? There’s also the matter of the Redgrave duke family. It would make a good scandal for their opposing faction.”

[A scandal, or perhaps a blatant weak point. It’s possible that the earl household may come to get back the sky pirates.]

“──Was it fine to only rough them up?”

I wondered what in the world I had been doing up until now.

Wasn’t I an idiot for having this kind of power, yet not use it?

Right. An idiot.

I was an idiot.

“If make trash like them disappear, perhaps the kingdom would become a bit more decent. No, that wouldn’t work. The kingdom itself is trash, or better yet, the otome game itself is trash, right?”

Luxon, watching me as I thoughtlessly smiled, didn’t speak with its usual abusive language.

[Are you sure about this? I would have no hesitation in destroying the kingdom, nor this world. If you give me the orders, I can carry them out soon. After that, it would also be possible for you to create a world as you see fit, Master.]

A world as I see fit?

That would be the best!

“How nice. What about making a harem with women? Maybe gather some elves or cat-eared beastkin. How about this time, make the kind of world where women are the ones treated like garbage?!”

That’s when I realized what I was saying.

This was just the same situation, but with the positions of men and women reversed.

“──What the, am I the same as those girls in the academy?”

[You likely know the answer to that inside yourself. Have you cleared up your thoughts after venting your anger on the sky pirates?]

Not at all.

Pent-up feelings were squirming around within my core.

I wanted to expel them immediately, but I didn’t know how to do so.

Luxon comforted me.

[This about her, isn’t it? I don’t think that Olivia hates you, Master. However, emotional instability──]

“I know. Did you think I was angry at her? Did you think that I viewed her as some kind of ungrateful freeloader?”

[Indeed.]

“Just who do you think I am?”

When she went outside, I did think “What was that fool doing?!” to myself. However, on the flip side, I was able to see Brad’s and Greg’s chivalrous spirit thanks to that.

What happened there was what the relationship between the protagonist and capture targets should have been. The ideal situation.

I should think of it as a major development. Right, this was good. No more acting on behalf of their role. It was time for me to return to being a mob.

I took out the “Holy Necklace” from my pocket.

“In that case, how should I pass this onto her?”

Rather than giving it to her as a present, I wondered who would be easier to knock sense into and have them get along with Olivia. Brad or Greg?

It would be most optimal if it was one of them.

I wanted the two to keep at it by all means.

So, I decided to have them return to the position they should have been in.

“I’ve decided what to do with the treasure.”

I made my own conclusion and stuffed the necklace into my pocket.

Luxon informed me of something.

[Master, it seems that a fleet from the earl household is getting closer. At the same time──it seems that an airship of the Redgrave duke household is heading here as well.]

Today really turned out to be a turbulent day.

  1. Thanks for the chapter.

    Leon… you’re an idiot. It’s too late to change things back to how they should be, especially with Marie around trying to steal the game’s MC position.

  2. I am early. I like how this is going. Make it emotional next! Pierce my heart! And if possible cut ties to them (though I know it will not happen but still!)

  3. i know it’s gonna be like this, but reading it are really frustrating huh…, his “i’m a mob” mentality, the way he look at olivia are already back like watching a character inside some screen, he don’t even care or try to think about their feeling, brad and greg are still in love with mary, while olivia definitely don’t have any feeling for those two, yet he’d be like, holding them in the scruff of their neck, and forcing them to each other like “now kiss!”

    the way he blatantly calling her “olivia” right in front of her and totally ignoring her are beyond frustrating, yea this chapter are really frustrating

      1. do you mean 2 chapter more? because next volume already 2nd part of the arc and the next one after that are already the next arc

  4. The problem is Leon’s low self esteem. Also Olivia’s growth is distrupted so she is too immature.
    And for some reason, I felt like Olivia deserve that plot. She is an ungrateful freeloader. Going around shouting at people who care her very much. I feel bery good about her hurting.
    Maybe I am having an anti-hero line of thoughts.

  5. thanks for the chapter ????

    i know it Leon jelous towards Brad and Gred… yeah after this we got see Anjie and Olivia Chapters, hopefully they can be friends like before (^,^)

  6. If Leon wants to return like a game it means that it will make Livia and Enjie become hostile. Of course that won’t happen.

  7. Leon still views everyone around him as a “thing” inside a story with a role to fulfill, but not once does he even consider what Olivia or even Angie wants and/or thinks. They’re not real people to him, just characters. And Leon, it’s not “those girls” you’re actually lik, it’s your sister. You’re just like your sister, carving out a role in the story at the expense of the heroine and ignoring that the actors are real people with thoughts and emotions of their own.

    You and your sister are only different I the roles you aim for.

  8. hmm, this remind me a little about sono mono nochi
    and i hope that leon didn’t give the necklace to the “Ranger” because i bet that they will present that necklace to marie and i see something similar in illustration, i hope that’s not the case

    1. I am 99% sure that will be the case, or else, Leon will give one of them the Necklace, and that Marry will forcefull take that

      1. Dude, dont jinx it. But i have that gut feeling too. Even if marie takes the necklace, she’s not going to become a queen anymore.

  9. Thanks for the chapter

    I must say, him calling her Olivia is harsh. And it will become worst than that. But in the other hand it’s the first time i see Leon in the new light. This dude afraid he just stole everyone future especially Olivia that’s why he really hurt seeing Olivia getting protected by others.

  10. Your original story reads alot better than the majority of isekai stories today. (Which, to be honest, isn’t a high standard compared to Smartphone and Ragnarok.) It’s an interesting concept I wouldn’t mind getting into.

    Anyway, thanks for the translation.

      1. “The Master Of Ragnarok And Blesser Of Einherjar.” I’d give you more details but the less you know about it, the better.

  11. Thanks for the chap~

    He still haven’t realize it yet? His fate as a mob character is gone the moment he found Luxon. What make a “mob” a mob is, they didn’t stand out, they go with majority, and they goes with the flow, not resisting it. Now how about our MC? He resist his fate as a mob the point he decided that he would go and find weapons from ancient civilization. He stand out by helping Ange, and he disagree, even willing to fight with the opinion of most people in that “game” where woman rules. I hope he realize his mistakes.
    Well, this is just my opinions as a noob reader, please feel free to correct me if I’m wrong.

    1. It’s interesting to note that he even apologized in his heart to Olivia for taking Luxon, which is originally something she should have found as the heroine, but he wanted it for himself. This was one of the reasons he approached her in the hallway, as he felt a little guilty, but not really guilty enough to regret completely depriving her of the opportunity.

      Did you notice that she has an unexplained effect on Luxon, as her shout disabled his worker drones long enough for her to reach the hanger? I suspect that’s going to come up again.

    2. well, in his defense, dude nearly got sold to some middle aged rotten noble lady to be their toy, that time, i don’t think he will mind the future of the story when his own near future will soon be living hell

  12. And so it starts, Leon’s low self esteem is making him take the wrong decisions and it will be like this for a while, and contrary to what most believe, the fact that Leon keeps talking on how Livia is the protagonist doesn’t mean that he still see the world as just a game and Livia as just a game character (in a bad way), he is just using that as a excuse to distance himself from her since he thinks that a mob like him (someone of no importance in the game story) isn’t worthy to be at the side of Livia the protagonist (who should become a amazing person according to the game story). I mean come on, you can even see how he is jealous how Brad and Greg since they male leads in the game, someone who could be at Livia’s side.

    On another note, this is something that was lost in translation since japanese honorifics aren’t translated here but Leon usually calls Olivia as “Livia” and here he calls her “Olivia-san” which is more distant that just using her name without honorifics.

    1. And yet again, he only sees himself as a “mob” because he sees the others as “characters”, believing they had roles they must fill. He doesn’t believe they’re people with agency, and has never once even considered that Olivia might have her own thoughts and feelings about the “capture targets”. He just assumes he knows how things will inevitably be but doesn’t realize he (and his sister) have already integrated themselves far too deeply to be ignored.

      1. And this is why I said not in a bad way, he doesn’t see them as just game characters as he as shown that he cares about some of them, and acknowledge that everyone is a living being in that world, otherwise he wouldn’t care so much about killing others. That said, he IS assuming on his own that Livia will get her happiness if she follows the script of the game, since he thinks he was a bad influence for her based on what she and luxon said, and that this happened because he got too involved with her, and let’s not lie to ourselves because assuming what others think is something everyone does, even Livia just assumed on her own that she wasn’t worth anything for Leon and that he and Angie just saw her as a pet.

        The point is, at the beginning he indeed thought of Livia as just the protagonist of the game who had a role to fulfill but now he is under the misunderstanding that for her to be happy, she must follow the game’s original script and that a “mob” like him won’t be able to do for her what the “male leads” could do in the game.

  13. Thank you for the curbstomp, but not enough.
    I wonder when will she realize that she loves him. And if he really do build a female harem, i wonder who are the candidates. Pls enlighten me. How many and who are they. Will there be a bloodbath? Catfight? Usurpers? He should just “eliminate all” path. Kukukuku sorry. Psychopath switch flipped.
    Anyway, thanks for the chapter.

    1. Not spoiler

      I predict the Angie x Leon x Livia combo, but ultimately he would end up as husband candidate of the royal family’s princess. His power stands out too much at this point after wiping out a group of pirates single-handedly that it would be dumb to keep him at low rank.

        1. Do you want spoiler of it or were just saying what was on your mind?

          For now I will just leave you will the fact that at the end of this volume there will be two nice scenes, one between Leon and Anje and another between Leon and Olivia.

    2. just saying here, Leon will be connected to a bunch of different girl yyes, but his true love are only the queen haha

      he not only propose in the school festival, he also keep flirting, teasing, sending love letter, even the kabedon, all of these, none other female aside from the queen ever get one from leon

  14. I predict Leon would try to use one of the two dudes to hand the necklace to Livia, only for them to turn around and accidently gift it to Marie cuz she wants it and they can’t refuse her.

  15. C’mon Leon, be a Man! You know your own feelings right?! Just admit it, you are jealous with greg and brad but you didnt have any courage and just run away from reality make your existence just a mob and make someone take your role. What a pathetic person, if you keep going like that i feel bad for Livia ib the future. Please show me your move to be a gentleman like your master next time.

    Ah, Thanks for the chapter!

    1. Welcome to the hypnotizyng power of the authors. How to avoid? Just get used to it. I have seen more cliffs than you. Like power of the shadows.

  16. Thanks for the chapter!
    Loving the LN so far, i can almost feel the frustration in Leon. This author is my favorite one in jap media now.

    Again thx for your work!

  17. Thanks for the chapitre
    All readers said that lion is an idiot but l think is Olivia fault ????????????

    1. As with most dramatic confrontations, it takes two to tango. While one party may have a greater fault, it’s almost always the case that all parties are screwing up somehow across the board, feeding the problem and making it worse.

  18. Thanks for the chapter….
    Just do it!! Expose those documents and get your position!!! Why are you even taking care of them?? Are you even using your brain?? Don’t do what the game tells you as the emotions are a big uncertainty here and you couldn’t negate it….
