RECAP: Blue Box Chapter 117 Spoilers and What to Expect in Chapter 118
In Chapter 117 we see Taiki blaze through the semi-finals as a ferocious competitor. Despite Sajikawa, a competing institution resting its reputation on the shoulders of one of their students opposite Taiki in the semi-finals, the protagonist was able to dictate play from the get-go. The match was his from the start, and even the finals were a foregone conclusion: Taiki was the winner.
In the final moments of this chapter, we see Chinatsu appropriately being the first one to meet Taiki and congratulate him. He thanks her but forgets at the moment to use the honorifics, speaking to her as Chinatsu instead of as Chinatsu-senpai, and it’s heartwarming to see them so comfortable around each other. Onwards and upwards with the future chapters though, as Taiki takes his ambitions to the natural next step!
