** This trait of theirs is anime-invented. The manga's final chapter however has Yui sparring some of her meager extra cash on a high-end camera to take pictures of the band, Mio while she was sleeping (and presumably Ritsu and Mugi as well). [[spoiler:This is later revealed to have been the basis for a set of T-shirts they would wear on stage, which Yui had Sawako design using their silhouettes.

During the New Zork chapter he acquires a Super-8 movie camera and over a hundred film cartridges, and he spends a good deal of time filming things in C'hou, though he doesn't do much filming in the other two worlds they visit (mostly because circumstances prevent him from doing so).
