The Rise of Otaku Chapter 208 1
Chapter 208 Part 1 Deceiving And Betraying
Zhou Yu noticed that the ethos of Luhua village was suddenly changed from simple and honest to foul and rotten. Almost everyone was talking about which of the twelve adventurers was more promising. Zhou Yu didnt know from which corner of the world they had gathered information, but he would always see a group of people gathered together discussing endlessly.
There were people, who thought that they should play safe, and there were people, who like to take risks and give the risky odds of 1:5 a try. Every time they discussed, the atmosphere was as lively as people celebrating New Year. Fortunately, they didnt forget their work because of this. Otherwise, Zhou Yu really intended to spend some time educating them.
Whenever the program began to shoot, the people of Luhua village would come to watch, and whenever the idol, they had bet on did well in the maze, they would shout excitedly to cheer them on. They made the whole place look like a horse race.
On the first day of shooting, an idol was already out.
After all, this was a reality show about survival, which was full of "death" traps. It was because everyone was extremely careful that only one person was eliminated from the game on the first day.
Indeed, the idol, named Xun Hu, was unlucky enough to step on the frozen lake, and fall into it after making just one wrong step in a level called Water Ballet.

At that time, the idols agent outside the maze almost cursed out loud. God Dammit! It took us a lot of effort to finally be able to get into a show that looks very promising. But why are we the first one that was eliminated from the game?
Fortunately, Xun Hu had obtained a treasure, called "life of the toad". Using it, Xun Hu could get a chance to respawn in the game. Originally he intended to keep it as a trump card, but now there was no time to reserve this trump card.
After his narrow escape, not only his agent heaved a sigh of relief, but those, who bet on Xun Hu, also clapped their chest and said that that was close.
However, at the beginning of the second day, Xun Hus odds dropped immediately. And according to the performance of the twelve adventurers, almost all the Idols odds were changed. The only one that didnt change was Yi Nian, it was still 1:1, very stable.
Oh well, he was a very powerful contestant after all. In just one day, he had already cleared seven rooms and obtained a bunch of items. The most surprising thing was that he even obtained the first plot triggering item the whimpering conch.
After blowing the conch, the first level maze clearance gate would be opened, and although other idols could also pass this gate, only Yi Nian became the "true hero" in many audiences minds, especially his female fans, they all were screaming "master hero" all the time. In just one day, he gathered a lot of new fans.
Regarding this variety show, in fact, winning or losing was not that important. The most important things for all the idols were to gather fans during the show. With Yi Nian this kind of perfect performance, it was not a surprise that he would be able to gather many new fans. However, there were some idols, who took the unusual path to gather fans.
Blass, also known as grim reaper among the twelve adventurers, preferred to challenge other adventures to a duel, and his maniac-like disposition made him look like he was more interested in hunting down the other adventurers than rescuing the so-called princess. He was just like Hisoka in HunterXHunter, clearly, he was a bad guy, but he still had a lot of fans.
Grim Reaper and Mr. Perfect, these two idols were probably the two most popular idols so far, and their betting odds on the Starlight gambling industry were about the same. The two people were like the light side and the dark side of a comic story, representing the good and the evil respectively, and everyone was looking forward to their final confrontation.
The confrontation between the good and the evil certainly made people excited, but Zhou Yu was more interested in another idol. It was the Black and White Rose. This girl, who had double personalities, had many Moe points that made many otakus obsessed with her. The weak and timid White Rose, the aggressive and strong Black Rose, with both S and M dual personality, how would anyone be able to resist that? From an otakus perspective, the popularity of this Black and White Rose would be the highest in the real world.
But that was only speculation.
Anyway, the filming continued.
After entering the third level maze, as the area became smaller and smaller, the possibility of contact between every adventurer greatly increased. Grim Reaper was still hunting down other idols. Three adventurers had already been eliminated by him, and Mr. Perfect was playing the role of a saint constantly trying to save people, what he said the most was, "if we want to save the princess, we need to rely on the strength of everyone."
Our main villain, Mr. Grim Reaper, on the other hand, was having the mentality of "You weak chicks would only slow me down. Instead of being kicked out by failing to pass the test, how about let me enjoy the pleasure of victory by eliminating all of you!", then he continued to eliminate other adventurers.
As the show goes on, Mr. Perfect gathered a group of companions with his saint-like heart, just like the story in an RPG game, in which the protagonist would first save people, and then invite them to join him, and in the end, they would form a strong team.
