The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs

The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs v2 Chapter 10 Part 3

Garrett escaped into a warship.

He issued commands while yelling inside the bridge of that warship.

“What are you doing?! Hurry and sink it!”

A soldier objected.

“Our allies are there! Besides, isn’t the princess still safe?”

When Garrett tried to touch his non-existing moustache, he realized that it was already gone and tightly clenched his fist.

His moustache was his pride.

He had been grooming it daily, and yet it was completely gone now. His handlebar moustache had vanished when he woke up.

That knight. That knight was the one who did it. Garrett burned with a desire for revenge, seeking no rest until he could get back at his opponent.

“Why did you charge?!”

The soldiers averted their eyes in response to what Garrett said.

(These people must have purposely charged forward in order to save the princess. That must be the reason why they aren’t bombarding them! She even has a replacement, though!)

When Garrett kicked some nearby equipment in frustration, it was surprisingly sturdy, hurting his leg.

“Gah! T, this is also the work of that hateful man. I despise the one who robbed me of my moustache!”

A sailor shouted.

“W, we’ve spotted a new warship! It’s estimated to span around seven hundred meters!”

Garrett looked outside in a hurry.

“Foolish! For reinforcements from the kingdom to come at this time──”

He violently snatched binoculars from a soldier, and when he examined the area, he saw one strange airship heading towards them.

“What? I can only see two cannons.”

The soldiers were also curious.

“It’s shape is also unnatural. Also, moveable cannons? And there’s only two of them?”

It was common to fight by suppressing an enemy with numerous cannons fixed to the side, making the shape of this airship too unnatural.

Garrett stroked his lonesome lips.

“Sink it. Such a crude airship is an eyesore. There is no problem if we collect its floating stone.”

The objects that allowed airships to fly were called floating stones.

It was due to them that airship technology had developed. This was a world where airships could be made with designs that were anything but simple, all due to the existence of floating stones.

It would have been no problem if the opposing threat in front of them was just a mere airship.

“Surround it at once.”

Thereupon, the opponent faced towards the warship Garrett was in and fired a cannonball at it.

The warship shook tremendously and navigation became impossible due to an important engine being damaged.

“W, what’s going on?!”

“The enemy is bombarding us!”

“A bombardment? As if it can reach us at this distance!──Augh!”

Once the opponent began more bombardments, warships of the principality began to successively lose their ability to navigate.

Garrett saw something ejected from the opponent and noticed it heading towards the inclining luxury liner.

“W, what in the world?”

After a portion of the ceiling fell down due to the bombardment, hitting Garrett directly on the head and causing him to bleed, he could only imagine what would happen afterwards.

A large box had descended onto the deck.

The students’ eyes shined with hope after seeing that box.

Chris made a complicated expression, but it seemed that he was still relieved.

He descended near me with his battered armor and called out to me.

“Baltfault, is this your doing?”

I held Luxon with one hand and turned around.

“Who do you think you’re talking to? Rejoice──this is my victory.”

It was natural that the victor had already been decided.

Luxon addressed me.

[Master, units of armor from the opponent are heading this way. I request for permission to deploy the drones.]

Once I nodded my head, Partner began ejecting battle drones one after the other.

They had only an upper-body, making them look like legless armor, and each of them carried a different weapon.

Once the box unfolded and opened, a unit of gray armor, Arroganz, appeared.

Its chest was open, waiting for me to enter.

Anjie and Livia seized Hertrude while watching me.

Hertrude looked at Arroganz and narrowed her eyes.

“Don’t tell me that’s a lost item.”

While getting on Arroganz, I replied to Hertrude.

“It seems you’re well-informed. That’s right. It’s a lost item.”

“I remember now. There was a young knight who earned fame in the kingdom as an adventurer. Was that you?”

Luxon said something like [That’s not really convincing,] but I ignored it and closed the chest of Arroganz, looking at an image of my surroundings.

The monsters gathered together and the knights from the principality began to move.

I smiled as Arroganz began starting up.

“Let’s go at them relentlessly. My one-sided battling continues here!”

[Master, you’ve already counterattacked them, though.]

“This is a matter of how I feel! I’m here to let them know just who exactly they picked a fight with. I will drive fear into the minds of the fools from the principality!”

Drones equipped with machine guns were ejected from a container on Arroganz’s back.

As they continuously decimated each monster, I spoke to Anjie and the others.

“Take refuge!”

Anjie and Livia nodded their heads.

“Alright, we’ll leave the rest to you.”

“Leon, you must come back.”

Thereupon, Chris stood beside me.

“Let me help you.”

Was he still holding out despite how battered his gear was?

“Do whatever you want. Just don’t get in my way.”

Chris made a slight smile despite my abusive language.

“I’ll make the most of it!”

Well, I was troubled by how he just accepted it. I was expecting a response like “I don’t want to hear that from you!”──Whatever.

“Luxon take out the large rifle and──the blade.”

[Opening container number one.]

While carrying a large rifle in my right arm, I held a blade with the left.

As Arroganz slowly lifted away from the deck, Chris flew next to me.

Seeing Arroganz appear up in the sky, the monsters came rushing to attack it.

“It’s futile.”

Drones gathered around Arroganz, immediately clearing out the monsters with machine guns.

Seeing that, Chris contemplated while saying “I was crazy to think I could challenge that with a sword.”

He should have realized that sooner.

The drones sent from Partner kept company with the monsters and units of armor, protecting the luxury liner.

When armor from the principality approached me, I pointed the rifle at it and pulled the trigger, blowing the armor’s head away.

“Now then, how about breaking that fighting spirit you all have?”

[You really do seem like a villain, Master.]

With a grin, I clutched the joysticks controlling Arroganz.

Garrett saw the scene from the warship’s bridge.

“Is he a monster?”

Not just the principality’s warships, but even their armor were being put out of commission.

The gray armor was heavily plated, a form far from mainstream.

At first he had laughed at how unshapely it was, but his face paled as his allies kept going down.

A nearby soldier spoke out.

“Earl, should we retreat now?”

Garrett sent a blow to that soldier.

He had strengthened his fist using magic and sent him flying.

“Retreat? What a stupid thing to say. If the troops of the principality return after having lost to schoolchildren from the kingdom, we’ll be the laughing stock!”

The soldier got up and wiped the blood from his lips.

“H, however, the damage to our troops has already──”

“They stole our princess, stole the magic flute, and now we might lose to a child! There is no way we can retreat!”

If Garrett and the others returned home in such a state, there would be no future for them.

Garrett, who would have to take responsibility for that, had no choice but to sink the enemy in front of him.

He chewed on his nail and his eyes became bloodshot.

“So the kingdom has a new model of armor. My position will be in danger at the very least if we don’t sink that before we return.”

As Garrett muttered to himself without worrying about the glances around him, some knights came to the bridge.

Seeing the specially made black uniforms they wore, Garrett instantly lifted his face.

He looked at the knight leading them and smiled.

“That’s right. We have you. The principality’s strongest hero.”

An aging man looked at Garrett’s face while seeming annoyed.

The top of the man’s head was bald and there was a large scar on his forehead. He had a large muscular body and unlike the other knights, he wore plate mail.

He was the only one wearing plate mail, and since the people around him wore military uniforms or knights’ clothing, he seemed to stand out.

However, this was the attire of a man who was constantly ready for combat at any time.

The people of the principality did not feel any discomfort in this man’s getup.

“I was told that there were orders to not let me lead an assault. I even heard that the princess had been captured. You’ll be chastised for this later. We’ll be forming a sortie.”

There was a glimmer of hope in the eyes of the soldiers.

They wanted this person to do something about the rampaging airship and armor in front of them.

Garrett nodded his head many times in delight.

“Well, that’s no problem. Viscount ‘Bandel Hymn Zenden’. I leave it to you and the others.”

The knights left the warship’s bridge.

Garrett made a stifled laughter.

“With this, everything has been settled.”

However, the beaten soldier spoke.

“B, but, we were given an order from the country to not let Viscount Zenden──”

Garrett laughed scornfully.

“Zenden made the sortie of his own accord. Besides, are you stupid enough to not let us play our strongest card? The ‘Black Knight’ will be able to kill that monster. After all, he’s the strongest knight in the principality.”

The principality’s strongest knight began to go after Leon.

    1. Err.. what? The black knight is a literary stereotype dating back to the Arthurian legends.

      It has been a cultural icon for for literally hundreds of years.

    2. Hate to break it to you (not really) but Saijaku Muhai isn’t some unique new thing that introduced this concept. As the other guy also brought up, “The Black Knight” is a very old reference thats frequently found in media even now. Just off the top of my head, one very famous “Black Knight” character from several years ago is Zelgius from Fire Emblem, who was a major antagonist for one of the more famous protagonists from the series, Ike. Theres tons of other examples you can find.

  1. Thanks for the chapter… change your name to 2Fast2Soon if you’re going to keep this up!

    Jokes about site name and translation speed aside, this is going to be a tough fight.

  2. Wow, their strongest knight launched only to become a laughing stock. I wonder how this ends. Villain vs antagonist. Stay tuned!

  3. Thanks for this wonderful chapter desu~!

    “The principality’s strongest knight began to go after Leon.”

    A few moments later…

    “The principality’s strongest knight began to kneel and begged for his life infront of Leon.”

    —-

    Leon : Omae wa mou shindeiru.

    Garrett : Nani!

    hahahah

  4. I thought my eyes were having problem when I saw two chapters today but hey who am I to complain or rather, this wonderful! Thanks for the translation! Slow and baka must be on fire today!

  5. “What the hell” of a level of that confession from Olivia and Leon just repeal it with his ultimate dense sense!!! Of come-on! Uugh!?

  6. With the “strongest principality hero” out of comission soon, Leon will have cleared in one go almost all of the war section while being in his first year, holy mother goat of zeus, he will nt get away without a big, BIG promotion now and with that, it will be stupid for anyone to keep ridiculing him, and even 3 of the prism rangers have come to see him close aside from the duel to see how stupid they were

  7. Thanks for the chapter…
    Is that viscount something like a boss character?? That would be no problem I suppose as Leon has a micro transaction item that he bought from real world (?) money…
    This will be a battle to read… now to get himself have his position next to the king himself

    1. You misunderstand something. In the game, Luxon was merely a high powered pay-to-win ship unit. In the world based on the game, it isn’t restrained by game mechanics. There isn’t anything stopping it from constructing a fleet of combat drones, additional warships, or entire automated factories to churn them out in ever increasing numbers. With Luxon’s help, Leon could casually conquer the planet. The only thing keeping him from doing so is his own dogged pursuit of mediocrity.

    2. The battle will be pretty simple thanks to Luxon, in game he was an infinite resources pay2win ítem, here he is an AI, couple that with him manipulating the drones, in a mecha battle, a high spec AI using drones with the pilot using the mecha is a deathly combo, couple that with high end mecha and drones that are superior in tech to anything and he is unbeatable, Luxon remodeled an air bike like nothing and remodeled a magic formula to create a massive shotgun shot

  8. Thanks for the crazy speed translation! Keep it up bro but dont push yourself to much, hope you always in good conditions.

    I bet even the strongest ‘Black Knight’ cant be stretching for Leon with Arroganz ????.

    Btw, Anyone have recomendation another novel like this?

      1. It’s so dumb though. Coincidental plot for the sake of comedy is fine in small doses, but when literally everything the protagonist does just happens to be correct it gets difficult to swallow.

        1. I mean…thats literally the plot of Overlord. MC just sort of…does shit purely on whims or just what he thinks is right. And even the rando things he does end up being crazy beneficial. And the fanbase loves it even though it is pretty much the general template for anything that MC ends up doing. Its just something you gotta either like or hate. Like…in Overlord, the MC decides to hide his identity and become an adventurer so he can experience the new world they’re in first hand. That later ends up making him the most famous and strongest acknowledged adventurer in the kingdom, which he ends up conquering under his real persona. His adventurer persona is then used to rally anyone harboring traitorous thoughts so the MC and his followers can always keep track of any dissenters. And his subordinates interpret it as all being planned out by the MC from the moment he became an adventurer, whereas it just sort of “happened” that way.

          Gets even more extreme later on. MC genuinely thinks of an Empire’s leader as a friend that has become an ally and subservient, and never realizes that the things hes doing like even casually running into him and greeting him amicably are ruining the guy’s plots to form alliances with other countries to rebel. He just never really notices. One of the MC’s smartest subordinates picked up on it though, and even though he thought it’d take a long time to break the guy’s will and make him truly loyal, hes just amazed at MC’s “brilliant genius” in making the emperor give up and become actually loyal in a very small fraction of the predicted time.

  9. I thought he would go full on shovel on them, while yelling “IT’S SHOVELLING TIME”. Thank you for the double chapters todays 😀

  10. damn dude you are too fast!!!, dont know what more compliment i can do to you! you are awesome !!! go go luxon and leo combo!!!

  11. many thanks for your hard work bruh!

    seriously i still curious how Leon carry loli princess, how that airbike look like?
    well i try imagery that bike look same “Final fantasy Advent Children”

    After this war i wanna see Leon answer Olivia love confession. oh! we still have Anjie & Queen and dont forget about new Loli princess can add join Harem????????

  12. Thanks for the double chapters
    The Strongest in the Principality doesn’t mean the strongest in the world…

    Why does this idiot Earl is given the power to lead this operation…

    1. To be fair, they’re up against a kid. In any sane circumstances some half-wit teenager is going to get butchered by any reasonably competent soldier no matter what gear they have. Unfortunately for them, they’re living in a setting defined by Japanese popular media.

      1. Plus the strongest pay2win item, it doesnt matter if leon skill is bad, Luxon will cover for that and he still has hidden the mamaship, imagine a protoss Mothership coming out of no where and see a child is the owner

  13. I get this feeling after looking at Olivia’s illustrations… I feel she is like Megumi Kato from Saekano, but with more personality. I wonder if is it because Marie stole Olivia’s game life, that’s the reason she felt like didn’t know why she is born in that world…

  14. Thanks for the translation!
    Wonder how long it’ll take Leon to take out the Black Knight. Unlike the idiot quintet this guy is experienced even if he is an arrogant battle maniac convinced he’s already won. Although his armor shouldn’t have anything that would be able to damage Arroganz much considering Jilk detonated a powerful bomb at point blank range without causing even a scratch. Wonder why Hertrude wants to take out the Kingdom considering the Principality has a bunch of self absorbed, arrogant, corrupt nobles in charge as well like Garrett. All he cares about is his rep and not only considers all his men replaceable, sacrificial pawns but the princess as well. Heck he even trampled on Leon’s head just because Leon was protesting Angie being taken away and was about to gleefully destroy the luxury liner with the excuse that it’s required by necessity. Wonder if Angie, Livia and Hertrude will start chatting about Leon in a girls’ talk about boys. Between his donation with them at the shrine and rescuing them I’d say his affinity with both are pretty high. Poor Leon, wanting to lose his title and escape marriage hell yet keeps getting into situations that’ll earn him unwanted promotions in rank instead. Anyone know what’s going on in the palaces’ minds? Seems odd they’d keep raising his rank and expected responsibilities when he only has himself, one armor and a single, powerful airship as resources with no citizens populating his land, and thus no expected products or resources to trade or use to finance development.

    1. it’s a spoiler though

      Spoiler
      The kingdom also has a lost ship, that they keep as the kingdom secret weapon, it’s using just that single ship that they able to win the ancient war and found the kingdom, yet a single adventurer from the countryside, found the same type of ship (even stronger, this guy ship are military grade, while the kingdom civilian), and took control of the ship without any superior noble to control him, and they can’t take his ship because their own rule, so yeah they freak out and become frantic to tie him to the country

  15. Thanks so much for the chapters!
    Its getting real good with all of leons’ broken-ness. Wondering how he will make the black-knight lose. Will he instead get the title?

    *waiting with baited breath*
