In the latest chapter, Taiki might just be able to shed the tortoise comparisons in light of being seen as a different beast.

RECAP: Blue Box Chapter 116 Spoilers and What to Expect in Chapter 117

As noted by other competitors, Taiki is quickly developing away from the amicable tortoise image, into a wild boar. He is being seen as a different beast, and it’s great to see this happen, as I was getting tired of the consistent reference to Aesop’s Fables.

Stating his lofty dreams are met with admiration, skepticism, and even scorn for how high he sets his sights. But despite this, he never lets this get to him or drag him down, resulting in him being a fierce, focused competitor who will surely break the spirits of lesser players. We’ll see if that’s enough to bring him to the top!
