Chapter 9.2The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs v1 Chapter 9 Part 2

November 15, 20182slow2latemtl

After tidying up the arena, Chris and his blue armor came down .

He was holding a large sword in both hands, and had a different kind of sword on his back .

He was a young expert swordsman . Not just a swordsman, an expert swordsman .

In the game, his status was higher than any normal swordsman, and had a t.i.tle that recognized him for his ability .

His father was a master swordsman who had been harshly teaching Chris the sword since he was a young age .

His calmness stemmed from his inability to display his emotions .

However, he was unrivaled when he held a sword…I didn’t like this guy either . Not only was he a character that was hard to capture, but he also can only use a sword .

Due to that, he didn’t possess any long ranged attacks, which made things difficult in the war part of the game . The habits of these past three people were too tough to handle, leading to many game overs .

Just thinking back to it made me angry .

Readying his large sword and armor, Chris held his weapon to the side, resembling the Waki-gamae stance in terms of my previous life . (TLN: Waki-gamae is a j.a.panese martial arts stance involving a sword . )

Chris spoke .

“──I am not negligent like the other two were . I’m going all out from the onset . ”

“Is that so? In that case, perhaps I’ll also go all out . ”

Perhaps still irritated that I was holding a shovel, he flared at me .

“How long do you plan on using that tool? That’s not suitable for this place . ”

“You’re not the one to decide that now, are you?”

The referee announced the start .

“Begin!”

──Well, despite what I said, I did think he was a strong character . He actually made sure not to be negligent, unlike the other two .

There was no hesitation when he moved in a straight path to slash at me .

“Luxon, deploy the drones . ”

[The drones are being deployed . ]

Drones successively descended from the weapon containers on my back . Firearms were installed on the spherical drones .

There were eight of them .

“──Wha?!”

As they were heading towards a surprised Chris, I made my next move .

“Open fire . ”

Pulling a trigger on a joystick, the drones all faced towards Chris and began firing .

Chris hurried in an attempt to avoid them, but there wasn’t much he could do when surrounded by eight drones . The damage from the machine gun attacks of the drones piled up .

Perhaps thinking that he wouldn’t win if only defended, he tried attacking the drones, but Luxon was operating them .

[How futile . ]

When he tried to attack them, they would go around and attack him from behind .

However, Chris responded immediately and took measures to prevent them from going around him by stepping back to the wall . It may have seemed like a good choice, but…

“Alright, checkmate . Will you admit defeat?”

While I was carrying the shovel and didn’t move, Chris got emotional .

“You! Are you satisfied with this method of fighting?! There’s not even a trace of the knights’ way in it! What are you fighting like this for?!”

I knew that with him being particular about the sword, he wanted a knight-like fight, but to be frank, I had no interest .

“Is that all you wanted to say? This isn’t a bout . No matter how much you guys are keeping this up as a duel, it’s still a fight to the death . It’s bad to rely on firearms, you say? I never heard of a rule like that . In the first place, aren’t I, the one going against you five, the one that should be pitied? No wait, perhaps that was out of line . It’s fine if it’s five rounds of one-on-one, so I suppose it can’t be helped if I don’t receive any sympathy . All things considered, the gap between us is too big, so I was thinking about going easy on you . I even thought about going through with that fair-and-square way of the knights that you guys were talking about . ”

Chris tried to moved while I kept incessantly talking . Luxon, not overlooking that, began having the eight drones around me all fire .

In order to not take his life, they used special bullets that reduced damage, but soon unable to move, Chris then used his giant sword as a shield while leaning down .

“You’re making light of me…n.o.body would acknowledge a fight like this!”

“That’s fine All that matters is the outcome . You guys lose, and I win . There are few people who care about the means to the end . Ah, but you guys will probably say that you’re all those kinds of people . Your standings would worsen if you just said that you clumsily lost, after all .

“Aaaaaaargh!!”

Chris, using his willpower to push his way through the storm of bullets, reached where I was and swung down his sword . Due to Chris’ magic power and sword speed, it looked like he was swinging down a blade of light, but I caught his left hand and crushed the large sword .

“As expected of an expert swordsman, that was superb . ”

Smoke was fuming out of Chris’ armor, and the referee announced the winner .

“Chris Fier Arkwright is unable to battle! The winner is…Leon Fou Baltfault . ”

When the referee said my name, I felt like he had no enthusiasm in his words .

I could hear a sobbing voice from the armor .

“…Why? Why did I lose? I worked harder than anybody else . I persevered longer than anyone else…I wanted to be recognized . ”

I had some sympathy for Chris, who was forced to work hard due to circ.u.mstances at home, but this matter wasn’t related to that, so I didn’t really care too much .

“Boast about your misfortune in front of that prideful girl . You’ll surely receive sympathy, then . ”

[You’re such heap of garbage, aren’t you?]

[You’re such heap of garbage, aren’t you?]

Luxon’s words stuck to my mind, strangely enough . Well, perhaps I really did overdo it a bit . However, these guys deserved to suffer defeat .

There were voices of anxiety from the audience .

“H, hey, Chris lost . ”

“What the heck . Isn’t that unfair?”

“…Say, that Leon person managed to conquer a dungeon solo and earn the position of a baron, right? Could it be that he’s really strong?”

“W, wait a minute . If that’s the case, then has the victor been set in stone? I’m going to lose everything I own!”

The audience started getting impatient after realizing that the bet they thought they would absolutely win might not go as expected . Meanwhile, the students that had looked down on Leon started to change their understanding of him .

Olivia had a face that looked as if she was about to cry .

“Anjelica, I’m…really sad . I’m glad that Leon won, but this is too cruel . ”

Anjelica spoke to Olivia .

“Don’t say foolish things . Even Leon might lose if he lets his guard down . He had to take vigilance with his opponent . ”

“I, is that so?”

She nodded and spoke about Chris .

“His swordsmanship instructor comes from an earl household . Chris’ father is the number one swordsman in the kingdom, earning him the t.i.tle of master swordsman . That boy was able to earn the t.i.tle of expert swordsman, which is only a step lower . ”

Olivia was impressed .

“How amazing . ”

“Sure, amazing . ”

(That boy couldn’t even lift a hand or foot against him, which means…the foster brother, Jilk, is probably getting fl.u.s.tered . )

Looking at where Julian and the others were, she couldn’t see Jilk or his armor .

Julian was comforting Marie, who had gone pale, and when Anjelica saw that scene, her chest tightened in bitterness .

(…his Highness . )

While Chris was being taken out of the arena and towards the medical office, Jilk was preparing for the next match .

He gave some instructions to the mechanic of his armor .

“Load all the weapons there are . I’m going to use both bullets and magic bullets . ”

The mechanic widened his eyes .

The mechanic widened his eyes .

“They’re not items to be used in a match!”

“This is a duel!”

The normally kind Jilk was getting impatient and lost his composure .

His green armor had feather-like decorations .

That armor was equipped with a rifle which gave off a dignified aura, and not a sword, but an axe . It was equipment that made it look quite like he was going to a battlefield .

“Can you remove the decorations and install additional armor? Afterwards, prepare hand grenades and similar items . ”

The mechanic was troubled .

“Jilk, I’m limited on the parts that I have on me right now . ”

Jilk casted his eyes downward, then lifted his head .

“Don’t worry . Just do what you can within the realm of what’s possible . ”

While the urgent modifications to the equipment were being done, Jilk thought about the fight while not looking at his surroundings .

(I have to stop him by all means necessary . If I don’t do that, his Highness’ reputation will suffer damage . )

Jilk lived for the sake of his foster brother, his close friend . If they lost here, Julian’s reputation would drop significantly .

Not accepting that fate, Jilk took all means necessary .

He picked up a bomb that was laying nearby .

“…I’m going to head out for a bit . ”

While the parts on his armor were being exchanged, Jilk stepped out of the room .

“*yawn*~, I’m tired . ”

There was a temporary break, so I went out of the arena and into the waiting room to rest .

Once I finished my business at the restroom, Olivia and Anjelica rushed over .

“Leon, where did you go?!”

“I was worried about you . ”

I tilted my head in response to their reactions .

“Huh, what?”

The two exchanged glances .

“Err, um, we heard that you were in a bad condition . ”

I narrowed my eyes .

“Err, um, we heard that you were in a bad condition . ”

I narrowed my eyes .

“Me? I was only taking a break . ”

Anjelica became a bit suspicious .

“A girl who called herself your sister appeared . Olivia confirmed that by looking at her face…and she said that you were looking unwell, so she wanted us to see you . ”

My sister was worried about me? Not a chance .

She didn’t want to meet me since I picked a fight with the prince, but I definitely did cause some trouble for her . However, would she talk to me at this time?

While thinking of such things, Luxon spoke to me . The two people in front of me couldn’t hear it .

[Master, an explosive was set on the exterior . Your older sister was the one that set it, but someone ordered her to . ]

…I thought so . It’s most likely that she was threatened into it .

She felt ashamed since I had picked a fight with the prince in the academy . This is where Jilk comes in .

I may be a heap of garbage, but Jilk was the sc.u.m of the earth . Well, I believe that guy would stop at nothing for the sake of Julian, and would do anything .

[The one who ordered her was your next opponent . ]

While hearing Luxon’s report, I breathed a slight sigh while thinking about how my suspicions were on point .

The two looked uneasy .

“I see…so you know my sister . What actually happened was that I was holding in the urge to go . My stomach started cramping . I thought I was going to leak . That was a more difficult struggle than the duel . ”

When I said that, Olivia looked fl.u.s.tered and embarra.s.sed .

“S, something like that can’t be helped, can it?”

Anjelica looked at me with a cold gaze .

“Do you think you should speak like that in front of girls?”

“I suppose you got a point . I went to go pick flowers then . The arena doesn’t have any flower beds though . ” (TLN: “Going to pick flowers” is an indirect way of saying that someone went to the restroom . )

When I said that, Olivia made a bitter smile .

Anjelica held her hand against her forehead .

“That explanation was…well, never mind . You’re going to make a mistake at some point if you don’t fix your normal way of speaking . Leaving that aside, it’s almost time . ”

“In that case, I suppose we should go . ”

Luxon gave me information as I headed to the arena .

[The explosive was set on the back of the exterior . Since the armor of this world contains important mechanisms in that spot, it seems that the perpetrator intends to seriously stop us . After calculating the quant.i.ty of explosive powder, it seems that it’s an amount that can take the life of a pilot inside any regular armor . ]

The normally kind guy was the most frightening…things like that were a common trope these days .
