It might only be easy to see in a slideshow, but the cicada head lines up perfectly with the island in the opening shots. (You can click back and forth in the Tumblr pop up windows to see this effect too.) The cicada can be a metaphor for the end of a long hibernation and coming out of one’s shell. Or maybe this all takes place on a speck of dust on a bug’s head (rather doubtful but possible I suppose) These are good deep meanings, but the cicada’s most readily useful purpose is to identify the season as summer.

not sure if i’m the best to answer this but;
i think that labels can be helpful things, but imo don’t really worry about figuring out which one suits you, just follow your preferences on a more case by case scale. like, if you’re a guy and you’re into some cute dude and you’re worried like “but i’m straight i shouldn’t like this” then the label has become unhelpful and is just getting in the way of a natural inclination. the purpose of labels is not to define you/your actions/your preferences on a strict and complete level, they’re to ease communication by representing broad ideas quickly, and so they inherently lack nuance or exception.
just enjoy the stuff you like!
