In Chapter 119, Ayame tries to win over Kyo with a special box of chocolates, while Matsuoka ruins everything seemingly just by existing and wanting affection.
RECAP: Blue Box Chapter 119 Spoilers
It turns out that having everybody give out Valentine’s chocolate results in some having similar packaging. Ayame’s boxes of chocolates resemble Chinatsu, which makes sense since they packaged them together, but it causes Taiki to momentarily think she gave them to Matsuoka. This is fixed quickly at the end of the chapter, with an incredibly sweet moment where she reminds him that he’s her boyfriend.
Meanwhile, Ayame’s gesture of giving Matsuoka chocolate was meant to be one of kindness due to him turning away chocolate out of consideration for a friend a long time ago. But now, with him never receiving chocolate since then, she takes pity on him. Kyo sees this, and immediately jumps to the conclusion that she’s just giving chocolate to everybody. Poor Matsuoka, he’s having a tough chapter.
What Can We Expect in Chapter 120?
Expect Kyo to continue not to get the right idea about Ayame, especially as Hina seems to have a better chance of ending up with him. Meanwhile, with Taiki issuing his challenge against Haryu at the National qualifiers in the Spring, he continues to assert himself and grow his presence as a young athlete. Lots of plot threads are continuing into Blue Box Chapter 120!
