Notes

This Oiri bukuro 大入袋 can be found on the sheet of the 3rd album's 23rd page, in the bottom right corner. These envelopes, containing money, were given by Japanese theatres (in this case Tokyo Gekijo) to the audience members when the theatre had a full house. This was thought to bring luck back to the production and company. In this case Stanley Kaizawa received ten yen from the envelope.
