Yoh becomes more confused and frustrated with his feelings towards the weather forecaster after a drunken outburst and discovers that his complaining about the laundry is actually the reason why doing “it” becomes scheduled. Mizuki, on the other hand, believes Yoh hates him. Will the dark clouds looming over their contractual relationship actually clear? Let’s find out in BL Tai’s recap of ‘My Personal Weatherman’ Episode 3!

As the weather improves, Yoh’s new manga is criticized by his editor for including a love confession rather than an erotica scene. He laments it while watching Mizuki in Everyday Weather, who reports that the rainy season will end soon.
Mizuki, who is on his way to work, passes by Yoh, who is waiting for Man-san in a coffee shop to work on their storyboards together. Mizuki teases him, saying it reminds him of Yoh showing him his cafe sketches when they were still in university. Man-san arrives shortly after and notices Mizuki’s back as he walks away. She immediately assumes that the person who left is Yoh’s boyfriend and congratulates him for having a good-looking one.
The two manga artists start brainstorming about the editor’s criticism of Yoh’s work. Man-san comments that a love confession does not necessarily have to be in words but can be conveyed in the character’s facial expressions, shading of the panels, or using lines that may not be an exact “I love you” but an expression of love. Thinking that Yoh sounds like a high school virgin with how he wants his manga to flow, Man asks him why he continues to draw heterosexual couples instead of Boys Love since he has a boyfriend, making Yoh wonder if he ever told her that Mizuki is a boyfriend. Man-san also noticed that Yoh did not exclaim, as usual, that he dislikes Mizuki Segasaki when she mentions his name.
Mizuki approaches Yoh while doing household chores and invites him out the next day. Despite the fact that he finds it out of the blue, Yoh agrees shyly. The following day when Yoh mentions that it’s his first time in Yokohama, Mizuki teases him for never being there on a date. Yoh silently wonders why they are out in the first place. Meanwhile, his stomach grumbles right when Mizuki asks him why he didn’t bring his sketchbook on that day. Mizuki teases him again for not simply saying he’s hungry and asks him what he wants to eat. He playfully repeats “Chinese food” after Yoh responds that he wants one. They walk to Chinatown and find a food stall where they order a ridiculously expensive pork bun and Taiwanese chicken, which Mizuki pays for. When Yoh mentions how good the pork bun is, Mizuki bites into it suddenly before agreeing and telling Yoh not to worry about the price. Meanwhile, Yoh is taken aback by the size of the Taiwanese chicken, which is nearly the same size as Mizuki’s face. Mizuki, who finds Yoh’s expression endearing, asks him to take a picture for him before sharing the food.
