Gen Hoshino’s ‘Comedy’ music video shows how important friends can be and it’s cute

The ever popular Japanese singer Gen Hoshino has just released an official music video for his song ‘Comedy‘ — otherwise known as the ending theme song for the Spy x Family anime series.

Gen Hoshino’s ‘Comedy’ video is adorable, as it features the singer surrounded by colorful yet strange looking creatures.

Creatures that, according to Hoshino’s official Twitter account, “depict a certain ‘family’ in which Hoshino-san and the mysterious creatures live together and go about their daily lives”.


The video begins with the Japanese singer living alone in a house and looking quite lonely with the one toothbrush in its mug and one pair of shoes in the genkan.

Until he heads off to eat his lunch outside, and a couple of weird looking creatures suddenly appear wanting to share his food.

Soon, Gen Hoshino is taking the creatures back to his house, airing out his futons, putting their toothbrushes in the bathroom and their shoes in the entry way, and generally getting along in a life now full of friends.

Weird though they may be.

The lyrics of ‘Comedy‘ also talk about what it is like to be an outsider, then to suddenly experience the miracle of being with someone that understands him and loves him.


Gen Hoshino’s ‘Comedy‘ was first released digitally early last month, and quickly hit the top of the Oricon singles chart in Japan.

The release of this adorable music video for the song is likely to only increase those sales even more. Yay!
