Thank God this didn't drag longer

I know this is real late but, based on the earlier chapter, no one but the closest friends and family are allowed to see the daughter before her coming-of-age celebration. Which is why the princess keeps getting dragged back to the castle. The king only allowed her to go to the general store because Mitsuha saved her and helped him and the prime minister. So the scumbag wouldn't have known prior to this.

It's always fun bullying stereotypical sleazebags.

I'm not always a big fan of Mitsuha because she's often a smart-ass and the story favors her morally for suspect reasons, but no yeah. This was a good move and it was satisfying.

If this were just a random noble, not knowing her would be fine. But she is the princess, and fatso and his associates have obviously been in the royal palace a few times. Add that to the fact she wanders around town with a platoon of royal guards and it becomes impossible for even a peasant not to know her.
I can't imagine them not attracting attention.
Then again, somehow those lolicons didn't notice a fraction of the fully armored royal guards marching around town, so I guess they are actually high class ninjas.

That was nearly the best. Nearly. I don't want to darken the atmosphere of this manga, but as that fat merchant demanded those things with such confidence, it seems like he also did such things in the past. And now he still gets a nice, grudge ridden, but still nice, wealthy and cosy retirement? I know that he just bombed huge parts of his business, but he is still well off. His employees that now get fired are those, that have to suffer the blow for the most part. Losing 70% off your income (with 30% left, which is still 25x of the average income) is not such a hard blow compared to losing 100%. I hope the author somehow covers this by MC acquiring the adler company for herself. Take responsibility, girl!

Perhaps I spent a bit too much time editing.

All according to Keikaku

Well, Mitsuha IS a con artist, by definition. And she indeed had rather easy life

@Askun we don't know how accurate the poitrets were. In the medieval based world you wouldn't need to know or see important ppl, the way ppl are clothed, acting and the size of entourage would make even peasant guess more or less accuratly the position of certain person. The only way this merchant who had access to the royal palace wouldn't know the daughter of the ruler would be if she was too young to be introduced. Just by looking at her dress he should be able to guess that she is from royal family.
Sadly con artists had easier life back then.
