Japanese boy dressed in blue on his smart phone texting his girlfriend

Perhaps someone would like to have a go at explaining what is happening here in this image I captured off the internet from a social media platform from Tokyo Times? I described it as gender confusion reinforced by “look at me, I’m important” in a society where commercial economic interests dominate decisions were the individual is pretty much crushed? Maybe he is going to a school drama and decided to change into his costume before the stage show? The comments at the blog are worth reading in this blog titled: Tokyo’s boys in blue.
