- Actor Allusion:
- Casting Gag: Literature Girl looks like an Aloof Dark-Haired Girl but soon subverts the personality by being shy and awkward. Together with her taste for literary subjects, the casting department must have thought of Mio Akiyama when they cast Yoko Hikasa as her.

- Literary Girl, A member of school theater and Yoshitake's sis are voiced by the Japanese dub voices of Weiss, Blake and Yang.
- It shares some seiyuu with ThePrinceOfTennis. These are:
