The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs

The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs v2 Side Story


TLN: So here’s something peculiar. Bakapervert had informed me that the LN has different side stories depending on what retailer you buy the physical version of the novel from. The eBook (what I use) unfortunately has none of them. Bakapervert’s copy has a side story from Anjelica’s POV, but there’s one out there with Olivia’s POV as well, which neither of us have. Bakapervert, the kind person he is, offered to translate the side story in his copy. So, here’s a chapter that’s only edited by me.


Anjie’s Wish

This took place when the three were visiting the shrine.

This was during the leisure period of the field trip.

Her legs were moving towards the shrine for marriage.

The reason her legs brought her here was really simple.

She wanted to improve her awkward relationship with Leon.

The three of them were standing side-by-side in front of an offering box.

Anjie thought to herself.

(…This is awkward. Besides, what should I say?)

She became worried since their relationship had worsened.

She didn’t know what she should talk about with Leon and Livia.

Anjie was perplexed toward this unprecedented experience.

The three of them were born and raised in different environments.

So, Anjie relied on asking help from a god.

“W, we’re supposed to make an offering, right? How much?”

When she took out a gold coin from her purse,

“T, that much?”

Livia was completely surprised.

Anjie couldn’t understand her reaction.

“Is this not right? This much is normal in temples.”

(I heard that I just need to put in a coin but is that not it? I thought that even one coin was too little, but am I doing something wrong?)

While Anjie was thinking that one coin was too few, Livia was thinking that it was too much.

Beside the two of them who were like that──.

“I’ve been waiting for this!”

There was Leon who was putting in rolls of banknotes, gold coins, silver coins, and even platinum coins into the offering box from his bag, one after another.

As expected, even Anjie thought that was wrong.

After all, the offering box was overflowing from the money.

“H, hey, you’re donating that much?”

Leon spoke without turning toward Anjie.

“I have a wish that I want granted no matter what.”

Anjie’s face blushed a little seeing Leon’s serious face from the side.

(It’s troubling how he looks gallant at a time like this, even though he’s normally frivolous.)

Then she too recalled her objective for coming here.

(That’s right, I’m here to make my wish come true as well──Oh god of marriage, please listen to my wish.)

She put not just a single gold coin into the offering box, but all the gold coins inside her purse.

Her wish was about the relationship of the three.

(I want to be like before again, with us three getting along──)

Anjie wanted to get along well with Leon and Livia.

They were different from the followers who had been prepared to her.

They were true friends who she had obtained in the academy.

Normally, she would try to do something about it through her own effort, but she didn’t understand what to do, and so she ran to ask help from god.

(──I want to get along with Leon and Livia.)

Beside Anjie, who was making her wish with pure intentions, an excited Leon blurted his wish.

“God, I won’t ask for anything luxurious. So please, please, let me have a wife! Please let me get married to a kind woman with good sense! I don’t want a woman who looks down on their husband and makes their husband raise the child of another man. Please give me a suitable partner!”

Anjie thought to herself after listening to that wish.

(S, so the boys also have it hard.)

Even from the perspective of Anjie, who was also a female student of the academy, the marriage situation of the boys was something that she couldn’t help but feel sympathy towards.

But──she wasn’t doing anything about it.

No, she couldn’t do anything.

(Forgive me. But, if you wish for it then I can introduce you to a suitable wife──)

When she thought until that far, just for a bit──Anjie felt it unpleasant to imagine Leon getting with another woman.

Her chest ached a bit.

She was feeling perplexed with her own emotion while looking at Leon’s desperate face.

Then,

“If possible, make her chest big, and a narrow waist would be nice as well.”

──Listening to the desires leaking out from Leon’s mouth, Anjie’s blushing face turned stiff.

Even her slightly reddening cheeks were recovering to their normal color.

“It would be even better if she was slightly frisky! Honestly, I want an amorous adult who can pamper me and──”

She felt stupid about the various things she had been worrying of just a little while ago.

(Leon, you──were thinking of such things with a serious face like that?)

He was a boy at the academy where the conditions regarding marriage were harsh.

She wouldn’t say any criticism even if he wished for a good match. ──She couldn’t.

However, his desire leaking out like this was unacceptable.

“Big breasts! Tight waist! And also a beauty──I beg of you, god!”

Her eyes met with Livia, who was standing at the other side of Leon.

She immediately understood what Livia wanted to say.

(Ah, Livia──so you’re also thinking about it.)

She felt like she was able to converse with the bewildered Livia using her gaze.

The two of them thought.

(This guy is no good.)

Leon’s desire knew no end.

“Bluntly speaking, I prefer someone like the queen!”

Hearing those words, Anjie and Livia reached their hand out toward Leon’s ear simultaneously and pinched.

“Wa-! Both of you, why are you getting in the way!?”

They wordlessly pulled and dragged him away from the place of worship.

“Wait! I didn’t say everything yet! There’s still more I want to say!”

Both Anjie and Livia ignored the desperate pleading.

(I have the feeling this idiot will become a good-for-nothing if left alone. Good grief──)

──What a handful friend.

When she thought that, she felt happy and also a bit sad.

No matter how far they went, she and Leon were friends.

Even if they got along with each other, it wouldn’t go further than that.

Because their statuses were different, they couldn’t become lovers and of course they wouldn’t be able to marry.

When she thought that──.

(If it’s Livia, would Leon be able to get along with her? Even if it’s impossible for her to become the first wife, if it’s as a mistress, then even Livia──. I should wish for the sake of the two of them.)

Anjie thought about coming again later for the sake of those two.

“I’m begging to you let me pray! For my wifeeeee!”

Anjie sighed, seeing an unwavering Leon──but her face was a bit red.

“Just give up already! Good grief, to prattle like that about a chest, or waist, or whatever.”

    1. Nothing beats a 3 am update….

      Still are there also a POV for Olivia? Would make pretty good one.

    1. I’d say that’s why Leon is better than her ex-fiancee, she has to deal with his sh*t but he didn’t make her feel like sh*t.

  1. Interesting to see how much of an unreliable narrator Leon is. Some dialogues in the wish scenes from Leon’s POV was left out, along with several other details. Leon is not very observant, is he?

    1. Well, I mean Leon and the other characters’ personalities are different so they will obviously focus on different things and have different views on those things.

      Leon might also notice things that other people don’t notice, like the times when Mary broke her facade.

  2. Chinese new year Meatbun Delivery~
    Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)

    Julian: “Never!!”
    Brad: “why are you screaming so suddenly?!”
    Julian: “s,sorry.. i just felt something horrible..”

  3. Anjie is too pessimistic. Dude gets all kinds of promotions whether he wants them or not. Their status difference is narrowing. He’s also rich, has a nice territory, famous, reasonable if odd tempered, and is considered a powerful warrior. Furthermore, unaffiliated to any factions except that of her family, which he entered when he gave them tribute that time. Mutual love is also a consideration, if not the most important one. Means he’d have difficulty defecting even if he wanted to. He’s an excellent piece, probably the next promotion that’s already scheduled would be enough.

    1. The Atlee family gave him an air bike and insured his promotion to upper 5th rank after graduation since he helped Clarice(Jilk’s fiancee) overcome her grief; so the queen, an earl, and a duke are supporting him. I hope we see more of Clarice since her last bit of dialogue could mean either-or for her mob status.

      1. I really hope he can get both, anjie And livia, such nice partners and he doesnt become aware that he is wether he like it or not is getting down on the court rank with so many fast promotions, he could be considered a hero practically after getting so many achievements and promotions that normally from what has been said take years or generations, one or two promotions more and getting engaged to livia wouldnt be a far off dream

        1. Olivia is the opposite problem: her status is too low. She would need the main wife to accept her, which would work out if it was Anjie.

  4. Ohh, finally a side story that wasn’t part of the WN.

    I was always curious on what their wish was and to even get a chapter of that from their POV was quite nice

    Thanks to the two of you for translating this chapter and hopeful someone will be able to get the one from Livia POV in the future.

  5. I’m surprised she’s so pessimistic about her own chances with Leon. Leon is rocketing up the noble hierarchy it wouldn’t be surprising for him to reach a level where it would be okay for the two fo them to marry

    1. Because she is woman the way of woman thinking is too complicated just slight worry can become a dam that bursting out just because some small crack

  6. Nah, anjie wish is to ship leon with livia, and livia wish is to ship leon with anjie. And poof, the three of them will be together in the end just like the three swords in the charm. Maybe…. XD
    But then, i think there’ll be not another potential heroine for our MC if the three swords is leon x anjie x livia. Maybe (again)….. XD

  7. Angie and Olivia don’t understand that is is Leon dream to be a good for nothing NEET. It the world that continue to stop his master plan from coming true

    1. They kinda were all the time, or most of them, retailers love to include some extra stuff only for them to catter to people, for example, konosuba is a fine example as each store that sella their volumes has a side story ubique to them, also, there are BD lot boxes too, again, konosuba as an example, with one of the BDs it added a nice 2D game with some nice pixel art and game play, pretty much many stuff is a loot box now

  8. Thanks for the chapter 🙂
    What an interesting idea… I’m guessing the side stories are very similar and would be considered redundant in a single book, still I wanna read both perspectives 😛

  9. O.o A freebie by bakapervert? Thank you sempai for your gracious blessings to this poor sinful fool! Still thank you!!

    Leon your true wishes are leaking out and Anjie is starting to show signs of liking leon. Now this will be fun still Hus wish for his wife to be like the queen is something I approve of gambate leon.

  10. So he really wished someone like the queen. Not bad. Yep, not bad. BBW is not that bad. Tsuntsun and himehimedere is not bad either. Actually, pick em all!! I want Livia’s pov too. Both of them have now feelings for the idiot… I already knew this day will come. Thanks for the treat. Im expecting a real chapter at later time too…

    We need the Queen X Leon ship to sail!!! But that will never happen… for consolations I just want Leon to get more stronger and get more power from here and there..

    Anyway, thanks for the chap! Recent days has been wonderful days!

  13. uwah, I could predicted that Livia also think like that, that she’s no good and Anjie is the better choice for MC.

    Julian:Noooooo????????????????

  17. Thank you both bakapervert and 2slow2latemtl for the chapter~

    Kinda weird that the book sold has different content from each other. Maybe the e-book version got split as main story and side story?
