Shimotsuki-san likes the mob Chapter 14

Do You Have to Be the Protagonist to Feel Good?

TL/ED: Bogdi

It is painful to see that Azusa’s determination did not produce any results.

But that’s the path she chose. I’m not in a position to be helpful to her anymore.

Kotaro Nakayama is no more than Azusa Nakayama’s older brother in the family register.

Nothing more, nothing less. I can’t do anything about her love life.

 

So, for now, let’s concentrate on what’s in front of me.

I had to get rid of Ryuzaki as soon as possible, so as not to bother Shimotsuki.

“We can talk in peace when we’re alone. Don’t be shy. Don’t you think it’s time for you to tell me? Tell me why you were alone with Shiho.”

 

It seems that the protagonist has a strong attachment to his childhood friend.

If this was a story, the main heroine is probably Shimotsuki.

Those girls I liked so much are subheroines.

“You want to know? I mean, it’s her private life, remember? Are you sure you want to pry into it?”

 

To be honest, I felt like I was being a little pushy.

I felt reluctant to say too much when he questioned me so persistently.

 

Why does he want to know so much about Shimotsuki?

He was generous enough to tell me that he had no reason whatsoever to be concerned.

“I’m her childhood friend, you know. I have a duty to protect her, because she’s sickly and weak. …… I’m the only one who can help Shiho, because I’m her childhood friend.”

 

It was like he was talking to himself.

I felt a chill when Ryuzaki talked about something so grandiose.

 

(Do you really have to be such a protagonist to feel good?)

 

This arrogant, smug, selfish thought made me angry.

Shimotsuki is weak? Is Ryuzaki the only one who can help her?

It’s so misguided. She’s not that weak of a girl.

 

She’s a normal girl who can speak her mind and express her feelings clearly.

At the very least, I can say with confidence that she is not the kind of person who can’t live properly without the help of others.

What can I say? …… Honestly, I was afraid of Ryuzaki.

The protagonist may seem normal, but he’s anything but normal.

This guy is insane.

If I were to argue with him and get suspicious, and if Shimotsuki were to follow me around ……, I would be horrified.

Now, I felt like I finally understood her feelings.

I really …… did not want to have much to do with Ryuzaki, I thought.

“We’ve known each other since childhood……, and it’s my job to protect her from bad boys. Shiho is too kind and timid to express her opinion, but …… I’ll do it for her.”

And Ryuzaki seems to think I’m a bad boy.

“She likes to be by herself. Don’t make her go out with you for your own reasons. …… Don’t take advantage of her kindness, okay? As a childhood friend of Shiho’s, I’ll give you some advice.”

 

I wonder if protecting her means to attack her.

I don’t think it’s right to make assumptions about Shimotsuki’s personality and ideology without permission and to exclude others just based on assumptions.

How could he do this?

No matter how much of a mob character I am, doesn’t he think it’s rude?

No, the most rude thing is not towards me.

Doesn’t he feel sorry for Shimotsuki?

(…… I bet he doesn’t think that way.)

 

How could Ryuzaki think of such a thing as normal?

Because he is the ” protagonist “.

 

Everything can and has been forgiven on that basis alone, because he is an opportunistic and extraterritorial being–
