Making Amends and Heartfelt Confessions in ‘Perfect Propose’ Episode 3

To make amends for their canceled date, Hiro agrees to Kai’s proposal in episode 3 of ‘Perfect Propose‘.

Hirokuni invites Kai to a festival, but work interferes, leaving Hirokuni feeling guilty. Kai surprises Hirokuni with his favorite dish, yakisoba, showing understanding despite Hirokuni’s broken promise. When Hirokuni wants to make up for the festival, Kai suggests they sleep together, and the two get into the same bed.

Hiro rushes to the festival after work but arrives too late to get any yakisoba as the stall is closing. Disheartened, he walks straight home. Upon returning, he finds Kai eating yakisoba with an extra pack on the table. Kai explains that he bought it since Hiro didn’t seem like he would be able to make it with him. Despite Hiro’s offer to share, Kai insists he should eat it since he knows Hiro enjoys festival yakisoba. Kai remarks on how he thought festivals were supposed to be lively but this one feels lonely, perhaps because it was close to closing. Hiro apologizes to Kai, feeling bad since he was the one who invited him but broke his promise. Hiro is really upset since he was looking forward to it. Seeing Hiro sad, Kai pats him on the head and apologizes, understanding his disappointment. Hiro wishes Kai would express more anger at being stood up, but Kai remains indifferent. Hiro realizes he could have made different choices but ends up delaying their promise. As they eat yakisoba and Kai takes a bath, Hiro senses something is amiss. The next morning, Hiro wakes up to find Kai already up and breakfast prepared. At work, Hiro’s coworker notices that he’s once again putting up a wall. Given that it had been easier to talk to him over the past month, they wondered what might have caused this change. Kai arrives at the restaurant just as a customer approaches to ask about Kenji’s discharge and about Kai’s well-being, expressing her loneliness that the restaurant is closed. Kai reassures her that he’s staying with an acquaintance, alleviating her worry that Kenji might have forced him out. This prompts Kai to recall the time when Koji advised him to refrain from visiting Kenji for a while. Meanwhile, Hiro enters the restaurant and notices the apron hanging on the chair, reminding him of the first time the old man, Kenji, gave it to him. It was during this moment that Kenji taught him to cook, passing on his recipe book and encouraging Kai to prepare meals not just for himself, but for someone else.

Hiro is eating his packed lunch at work when Kaneko asks if Hiro has properly thanked Kai. Kaneko mentions that when his wife made him bento, he would often nitpick on trivial things, causing his wife to become angry. Kaneko advises Hiro that when someone does something for you, you need to reciprocate. This prompts Hiro to realize that he hasn’t done anything in return, even though he is letting Kai stay at his place. Meanwhile, Kai goes to the hospital to give Koji a key before immediately leaving. Back at Hiro’s workplace, his boss assigns him more work once again. Hiro’s coworkers inquire why he isn’t angry and express their own frustration. Hiro explains that while it’s frustrating, he understands that he’s a slow worker and never expects to be home on time in the first place. This realization leads him to understand Kai’s attitude and why Kai doesn’t get angry. Back at the hospital, Kenji questions his son about the keys in his hand, wondering if he went to the restaurant. Koji reveals that Kai gave him the keys and explains that he has been discouraging Kai from visiting him and urging him to leave the store. Kenji tells him to do as he wants since he knows Kai is someone who has likely given up on everything and has been living like that his whole life. Hiro returns home to find Kai asleep on the sofa, dinner prepared on the table. Instead of waking him, Hiro notices a book in Kai’s hands about making cute bentos and begins to flip through it. As Kai wakes up to heat up his meal, Hiro calls out to him and tells him that feels guilty about missing the festival and wants to make it up to him. Despite Kai’s indifference, Hiro mentions that he is troubled by the situation. He retrieves a book from his bag, explaining that he bought it for information on summer festivals. Hiro flips through the book and asks Kai what he wants, but Kai requests that they sleep together.

Hiro reluctantly agrees to sleep together but he was actually thinking about going to a different festival. Kai teases him about wanting to go on a date with him while playfully setting his pillow next to Hiro’s. Although Hiro hesitates to label it a date, Kai insists his suggestion is a better plan to avoid rushing Hiro’s work. Despite Hiro’s attempts to argue, Kai pulls him closer for a hug, noting how Hiro seems smaller, to which Hiro jokingly retorts it’s just because Kai has gotten bigger. Kai hugs Hiro tightly and then gently touches his cheek, noticing Hiro’s sweat. Hiro tries to explain it away as the heat, but with his hand on Hiro’s chest, Kai remarks on his fast heartbeat. Kai hugs him tightly once again and confesses his love for Hiro, but it takes a moment for Hiro to process what he just heard. When Hiro moves away, he tells Kai not to joke like that, but Kai insists it’s not a joke and suggests that Hiro only wants to dismiss it as one because facing the truth is difficult for him. Kai admits he is ready to give up since he knows Hiro is straight, but Hiro’s kindness towards him has made him attached to him. Kai playfully squishes Hiro’s cheek, knowing he’s flustered, but Hiro denies it. Kai then gently strokes Hiro’s hair and apologizes for scaring him before heading to bed early because of his work the next day. As Hiro looks at Kai, he realizes that Kai always provides an escape for him, which is why he continues to rely on him.

In the morning, Kai prepares breakfast and Hiro’s bento. When Kai accidentally gets ketchup on his shirt and wipes it off, Hiro questions why he’s not wearing an apron. Hiro wakes up early because he wants to have a conversation with Kai. He approaches Kai to wipe the ketchup off his shirt and admits he had hoped Kai was joking the previous night. He confesses he can’t suddenly view Kai as a romantic partner and is unsure how to interact with him. Hiro asks for more time to be able to face Kai properly and give him an answer. Kai responds nonchalantly, saying he doesn’t mind. Initially offended, Hiro explains he had carefully considered his decision. However, Kai reassures him with a smile, saying Hiro will inevitably fall for him anyway. As Kai leaves for work, he smiles at his shirt which was just cleaned by Hiro, leaving Hiro to once again realize Kai’s words too late. Hiro tells Kai not to get too cocky as he watches him leave.

I appreciate Hiro’s thoughtful consideration in giving Kai a chance rather than outright rejecting him. And of course, I like Kai’s confidence and response! That’s right Kai, make Hiro fall in love with you even though we know Hiro already feels attracted to him. Kai is a character that is a bit harder to understand, I really hope he learns how to hold on to things that are important to him soon. I am also hoping that Hiro will also change when it comes to his work.
