In Chapter 123, we see a bit more of Haruto’s backstory, explaining his reasoning for being such a competitive player.

RECAP: Haruto Yusa Wants to Become a Star and Walk Away from His Brother’s Shadow

Haruto felt constantly compared to his brother at his old school, which felt like it was holding him back. All eyes were on Shuji, and when he found out somebody beat him and came from Eimei’s team, he decided to enroll there to learn the tricks to beat his brother. Little did he know he’d end up sparring against Taiki.

While he only realized who Taiki was later on when he discovered he was the player who beat his brother, he played a fierce match, but nothing Taiki couldn’t handle. Taiki won, earning Haruto’s respect and acknowledgment, while now being a worthy opponent in Haruto’s eyes. It’ll be interesting to see where this goes next!
