23-year-old actor Masaki Okada (Hana-Kimi, Boku no Hatsukoi o Kimi ni Sasagu, Otomen, Mahō Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto, Space Brothers) voice-acted for the first time in the animated music video for singer-songwriter Mao Abe's new song, "boyfriend." Abe's official website began streaming the video on Wednesday:
The music video centers around "Dokukoi-chan," an imaginary Mao Abe fan who harbors a one-sided crush for a boy (voiced by Okada). The video ends with the lines:

[Boy: Oh! Long time no see.
That's a nice song, who sings it?
I like that song.
[Unspoken] I've always loved you ever since then.]
Okada himself happens to like Abe's music and said that her music is catchy and frank with both sweetness and sadness. Abe added that while this is a romance song, she wants people who feel frustrated about other bonds, such as affection, friendship, and family ties, to listen.
