The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs

The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs v2 Chapter 8 Part 3

As I was speaking with Luxon, Chris came out onto the deck.

He had a face of exhaustion.

“Good grief, I have no time to be by myself.”

Judging from what he said, it seemed that he had escaped from some girls.

Was this guy trying to get guys to pick a fight with him?

Luxon hid behind my back.

Before I knew it, he approached me with a fearless smile. His blue, well-groomed hair fluttered a bit in the wind, making me irritated at how stylish he seemed.

He took off his glasses and spoke to me.

“Baltfault, it seems you had a match with Brad. Why not have a fencing match with me?”

It seemed he wanted to beat me in his own field of expertise.

I laughed scornfully.

“Brad challenged me in a field he was weak at, and yet you’re challenging me to one you excel in? You’ve got a lot of nerve.”

His facial expression warped as soon as I compared him to Brad.

He was childish.

He shouldn’t have gotten disordered by only this much.

“I’ll take you on in a field I’m not skilled with, so come at me!”

Chris was a guy who specialized in swordsmanship. Due to that, he was a character that was useless when it came to anything else.

Huh. He was the same as Brad! These guys were too unbalanced.

“I, I──never thought of myself as being skilled with swordsmanship.”

I was shocked at Chris, who hung his head and put his glasses back on.

“How disgraceful. An expert swordsman should be more dignified.”

“I’m not lying. I’ve been practicing the sword for a very long time. Yet, my father told me that I had no talent. Just a while ago, I was told that a failure me would be excommunicated.”

Had he been scolded when he got back home?

He looked quite concerned about it, but considering what he and the others had done, it seemed inevitable.

If I remember correctly, Chris had an inferiority complex centered around his father, who was a master swordsman, or some kind of troublesome setting like that.

All of them had unthinkably troublesome settings. Settings that would fill up dozens of papers.

When I grumbled in a low voice about how tiring I thought of it, Luxon said [Then there’s you on the other end of spectrum, living a shallow life,] while still hidden.

How noisy! I already knew there was nothing else about me other than the fact that I had reincarnated here.

Even so, I was better than those troublesome guys──I think.

“So you’re trying to say that you became an expert swordsman from being a hard worker, huh? So what, are you saying that we, who can’t even become expert swordsmen, are lower than a talentless hack like you?”

Chris glared at me.

“If you can still say that after devoting everything to swordsmanship, then I’ll do whatever you want, whether it be apologizing or whatever. Just what do you know about me?”

Did I know him?

“I don’t know anything. I don’t want to know you either. So let’s turn the question around, what do you know about me? If you’re here to and talk about how pitiful you are and gain sympathy, then go talk to Marie. You probably told her this before, though.”

“I hate guys like you who don’t even have to put in much effort.”

Effort? I had to put in effort.

I had been working in the fields in order to survive, study under the light of a lantern, among other such things.

Meanwhile, the second and third daughters of the household got to study inside rooms lit by electricity and didn’t have to work in the fields.

And what’s with the shoddy excuse they gave about the girls needing to be treated with care?! Hmph──it was sickening.

They treated guys way too cruelly.

“What a coincidence. I also hate you people. I especially won’t tolerate guys like Brad and Greg, who betrayed my hopes.”

Of all things, they did exactly the what that I hated the most. I would definitely seek revenge.

As we were deep in our discussion, glaring at each other, an alarm quickly went off.

I surveyed my surroundings.

“What?”

“Nothing had been happening up until now!”

As Chris said that, a large number of monsters appeared from white clouds.

They came out from the clouds in tens, hundreds, and continued to increase.

“──Hey, you’ve gotta be kidding me.”

The monsters mimicked the appearance of aquatic animals, and flew through the air as if they were swimming in the sea.

Although their numbers reached a point where we could no longer count them, more were still rushing out from the clouds.

We were a distance away from the floating island, and there weren’t any other airships in our surrounding area.

Sailors came out onto the deck carrying weapons, but flinched from the overwhelming number of monsters.

There were even young sailors holding their weapons while trembling.

Chris drew closer to a sailor.

“What the hell happened?! What’s with that number?!”

“I, I don’t know. The monsters suddenly appearing like this──i, is a first.”

Chris was losing his composure, but it seemed that the crew were also the same.

I observed the state of the monsters.

“Why are they only surrounding us, but not attacking?”

Usually, monsters would attack upon sight, but they were strangely surrounding the airship while being quiet.

Luxon appeared around my shoulder.

If it made an appearance despite others being around, then it seemed to have judged that this was dangerous. Chris glanced at Luxon for just a moment, but ignored it in light of the impossible scene around him.

[They’re being commanded. Their current behavior does not align with my data.]

Assuming that they were operating as a group, I had never heard or seen a group of monsters this big being controlled.

Something seemed to emerge from around the forehead of the white, slightly pink monsters.

I couldn’t make it out, but Luxon projected an image of it to my surroundings.

“A crest? I feel like I’ve seen it somewhere.”

[It’s the crest of the Principality of Fanoss.]

“Fanoss? That has to be a lie!”

The Principality of Fanoss. Territory originally affiliated with a duke of the Holfault Kingdom, but had long since declared itself an independent principality.

My familiarity with them was a necessity.

After all──they were enemies from the final stage of the game.

[Do you know something?]

“In the game, the Principality of Fanoss started a war. Even so, this is still too early. I thought that I would have three years to prepare for this.”

[Is that related to the monsters?]

“There’s a magic flute in the principality. According to the game’s setting, it can command monsters. However, I didn’t know that it could command this many.”

There were thousands, or even tens of thousands.

That many monsters were surrounding the luxury liner.

The girls who were on the deck began causing a commotion.

“Hey, someone do something!”

“D, don’t we have weapons?”

“I’ve never seen that many.”

Perhaps we would be able to hold out if there were only dozens or hundreds of them, but it was futile for this many around a luxury liner.

The weapons were loaded, but even so, this was an airship that prioritized comfort.

It would be unwise to assume that this would be the main battle.

The girls and their exclusive servants fled inside. The noise gradually got louder, then a sailor fired a gun, perhaps losing composure.

Luxon was calm.

[I can form a sortie out of my main body and Partner. Master, I request permission.]

“Do it right now! How long will it take to arrive?”

[I can hurry it, but even so, an immediate──]

Thereupon, an especially large monster appeared from the clouds. Its figure was like that of a whale, and on its back was some structure that looked to have been prepared by people.

“Will the princess make her entry on that monster turned into an airship?”

The one who operated the magic flute was the princess. If it came to that, then things would really get bad. I never thought that I would have to deal with the principality during my time as a first year student.

I thought that I would have been a third year student by the time this would happen!

There were airships around the large monster the princess was riding──flying battleships displaying the crest of the principality.

From the clouds behind them emerged a floating island remodeled into an airship. Before anyone was aware, the large clouds scattered off.

They were torn into by the principality’s fleet and the monsters, causing them to vanish.

When Chris adjusted his glasses with his slightly trembling fingers, he squeezed out a voice.

“A principality, you said? What are they thinking, entering the kingdom’s territorial airspace?”

Without a doubt, they were planning to invade.

The number of airships they had were small, but they compensated with monsters.

While many students from the deck were taking refuge inside the ship, Anjie and Olivia came out. They rushed over when they saw us.

“Leon, so you were here!”

“Leon! ──Err, Leon, there’s something floating next to you!”

They seemed alert about Luxon floating beside me. Did it judge not to hide itself since this was a matter of life or death for me?

Certainly, it was dangerous to have this many foes.

The two watched Luxon. They also looked at the image being projected next to me.

“I, is it safe to touch?”

In contrast with the concerned Anjie, Olivia touched the projecting image in mid-air with her fingers. It seemed her curiosity got the better of her.

Then, she looked at Luxon.

“Leon, this sphere──”

I was troubled with an explanation, so I went with──

“Oh, this? This is my familiar, Luxon. Look, introduce yourself.”

However, Luxon seemed to dislike it.

[Familiar? No, I will not agree to that. I am the labor of science, not to be affiliated with magic. I absolutely will not yield on this. Nice to meet you, lady. I, Luxon, support my master. I’m not a familiar, but an AI──”

Olivia was listening to Luxon’s explanation while impressed, but Anjie ignored it. She seemed to judge that the current situation was more important.

“A strange familiar. Leon, so you have talent in magic as well? Though, I suppose the matter of focus right now should be those people. They look like they’re from a principality, but why are there monsters with them?”

Monsters attacked people.

It seemed that she couldn’t believe how monsters weren’t attacking despite being so close.

I shrugged my shoulders.

I knew the reason, but it would seem strange for me to know at present.

Chris stared at the large monster and then spoke.

“Wait, someone’s coming out.”

Anjie squinted her eyes. The princess of both the principality and the enemy nation, “Hertrude Sera Fanoss”, appeared.

“Princess Hertrude?”

While paying attention to Luxon, Olivia asked about the princess.

“U, um, do you know her?”

“I’ve only met her once before. However, why is she in a place like──”

Upon which, Princess Hetrude’s figure was projected above the big monster.

Everyone was astonished at the image of the princess being magnified into the sky.

While everyone was on alert, she spoke to us using a megaphone.

“This is the first princess of the Principality of Fanoss, Hertrude Sera Fanoss, reporting. We are declaring war on the Holfault Kingdom.”

The young lady declared war with an expressionless look.

I knew this would come, but I still wasn’t adequately prepared.

“Hey hey, there’s a limit to how rushed things can move forward.”

Just where did the schedule go out-of-order?

There was normally supposed to be time before the war would happen.

“Aristocratic children of the foolish kingdom. It’s time to prepare yourself. Do you surrender, or will you die? You have one hour.]

We were given a grace period of an hour.

Anjie struck the handrail.

“Does she plan on keeping us hostage? ──Coward.”

I suppose that we were going to be used for negotiation material as they declare war.

My sight glanced around.

The sailors were in a panic, but some of the students who remained on the deck were relieved. Being taken hostage meant that they wouldn’t be killed.

A small boat with messengers appeared from beside the principality.

Luxon spoke to me.

[Master, this has gotten dangerous.]

“It seems so.”

I looked at Anjie. Unlike nameless people like me, she was the daughter of a duke household with connections to the royal family.

Perhaps from the perspective of the principality, she would make for an attractive hostage.

“Just where did I go wrong?”

Why was a third year event happening now?

I was at my wits’ end.

        1. My money is on marie, pushing the 3rd year event of getting that dungeon item. think that it may be written in the game that it was a precursor to the war event.

          1. In the first place Leon won’t get involve with them if Marie didn’t interfered with the story. So the trigger is most likely is Marie.

    1. Ohhh, you made me remember that scene dude, you are a person of culture, hope its something like that, it would totally fit with Luxon

  1. Where did you go wrong? From the moment you become the novel’s protagonist…not main character, but mob protagonist…
    Now then, i wonder if nxt chapter, we will br having curbstomp cookies accompanied by blood filled milks and chocolates…time for luxon’s main body to make a show!

    1. It might also be Leon’s fault.
      I mean, getting the sons of high ranking nobles and royalty kicked out of their house might have destabilised the country enough that the ennemies saw a chance to invade.

      1. I think the moment Marie got it caused this because those items where supposed to be taken before the war in their 3 year

  2. I be the this a triggered event in the game that occurs after two of the holy relics are recovered, since Leon just got the necklace, and Marie the bracelet. This would make them equally responsible for pushing the story into endgame, which would be interesting.

    1. i think this Anjie 2follower fault, if u remember that 2girl secret talk at engine airship and toss something smoke out of the ship that time… maybe in Holfault Kingdom got damn traitors to Fanoss Dukedom….

  3. thanks for the chp, the game plot maybe got disturb due to marie when she said she wanted to go to a dungeon, now how will leon overcome this predicament, see u next time on, the “Ultimate Galge Reality!”

  4. thanks for the chapter ????

    come-on Leon time to be a hero…kill all monster there i sure u will be popular with girl after this…..

  5. Thanks for the chapter…

    This morning i read the raw…
    And noticing that previous chapter lacks part after shrine scene and before the scene where leon took out his charm…

    I only read it on google translate so i dont know if this is a translation error or something…

    1. Were you reading the WN? I didn’t leave anything out, so maybe it’s something the author changed during the transition to the LN.

      1. that loli miko said

        “this is first time someone donate so much money just for praying. i must report this to Grandma”

        (not sure who donate Anjie or Leon)

        sorry if my translate is bad, i dont know should said “offered money or donates money”

        1. NeroZero* i think u not understand story..that damn 2 girls released a signal to the enemy just like that dam early daughter got connection with sky Bandits…

      2. aside part that being left out, there’s also part that onlyy exist in LN, like that part where 2 girls badmouthing angie and throwing something outside the cruiser, like seriously that come out of nowhere, i wonder where will that one connect to

  6. Thanks for the chapter !~
    Ugh, maybe the thing marie found in the dungeon made thing progress more rapidly since the protagonist should be the one founding it and fighting with it…

  7. wow…unspected event, i think it’s because leon with the staff and marie with the bracelet event that was trigger the big even more faster…and thanks for chapter…

      1. sorry, my bad… at first i though leon take the staff from pirates not necklace(and then i’m realize the staff with the church)

  8. Reason for this happening is actually because Angie and Olivia play nice and that Leon actually rescued Angie from her downward trend of revenge. Due to the different situations, Angie ends up not reigning in her old subordinates. Thus the betrayal started sooner, where in the earlier chapter some feckless noble girls released a signal to the enemy.

    1. uuhh no, i don’t remember if it stated in this LN translation but the duel are elaborated more by Marie in WN, in the duel, in the end, nobody come to help Angie, so she broke the rules and get some adult from outside, only to still lose and get humiliated even more, she got disherinted right away by her family, got married off away in the countryside to some fat old ugly nobleman and suffer for life, no chance for revenge or comeback, and i’m serious, maybe this porn end cliche the reason it didn’t make it to the LN version, but seriosly, Leon really save Angie in the duel, her life, her future, and her happpiness

  9. Ah i see…

    I only copied the jap title to the syosetu… I don know if its ln or wn…

    Are wn and ln differ so much?

    Personally i dont really mind which version

  10. Fish can fly, fish can swim, there is an abundance of ocean everywhere. The power to control fish is a lot more threatening here than it sounds.

  11. Holy YES!!! UPDATES!?!!!
    Man he sure is unstoppable in delivering updates so fast, man the guy is on fire, he is on a roll nothing can stop him now brothers and sisters.
    Doesn’t mean I don’t like it though I actually happy for it just not used to have light novels being updated so fast but a very welcome experience just hope I don’t get used to the fast updates. Or else I’ll take it for granted and hopefully don’t compare it to other novel update speed.
    Leecher here~
    Signing off~

    1. WaduHek why not just reply comments! dont write coment to far i almos missed that…

      try remember Leon want buy all charms from that kid, then the kid said “no Grandma make this to see all people smile” so is Grandma no Grandpa

  12. Thanks for the quick translations, i cant imagine how much work it has been put to release so quickly, but still it la greatly apreciated

    “…was told that a failure me would be excommunicated.” it would be “… A failure like me would be…”

    Also, did i read Princess right? I can already smell a new member to the harem or something like that, i mean, it was after he went to the shrine, coincidence? Think not, surely Leon sped up things after taking down those sky pirates, the dukedom must have seen him as a treat, a youngster able to single handledly destroy a fleet of sky pirates who has great riches and an unknown military power, who would not feel intimidated?

  13. Thanks for the chapter..
    Actually… I can’t say that this is Leon’s fault as Marie has already explored the dungeon I presume and that could have just made this event occur… Now, let’s see what Leon has… a bike? I think that should be enough… I guess(?)

  14. I was talking about why the enemy Dukedom was attacking earlier. If Angie had kept on her path of revenge, she would have retained her power over her subordinates, since she would need every tool possible to defeat Olivia/Marie. However, since she was dissuaded from revenge by Leon and befriended Olivia, she has separated herself from her sycophantic flunkies. This is seen as a sign of weakness from the Redgrave House, and because of that unsavory nobles with connections to the enemy Dukedom are taking action. Thus the actions from her old followers earlier, where they lit up a signal for the enemy Dukedom.

    1. If Angie had been vengeful her family would have given up and married her off like the game. Enemy principality didn’t know she was there. Power over flunkies lost when duel declared so they should be more frantic to help out to get back her trust but being vengeful would just make them fear Prince’s wrath. Like Leon said, being happy would make them miserable while revenge would just hollow her out and self-destruct.

  15. Thanks for the translation!
    Shouldn’t it be a kingdom instead of a dukedom? Angie’s from a dukedom too but isn’t a princess so how can Farnoss be one? Also, usually when a country declares independence they call themselves a kingdom not a dukedom. Wonder if Princess Farnoss is a reincarnator too, trying to get Livia before she becomes a Saint and is still developing, interested in Leon, and considers everyone characters from a game not people so more cruel and selfish than the corrupt girls at school.

  16. Got the wrong word in the sentence: Someone seemed to emerge from around the forehead of the white, slightly pink monsters.

    It should be Something instead of Someone because it’s not a person but a hard to see crest that Luxon projected the magnified image of in the lines after.

  17. i just started reading this this morning. ugh~, i have class today but i don’t want to put it down…. T_T
