On the sheet of the 3rd album's 23rd page, on the bottom right is an Oiri bukuro envelope. These envelopes, containing money, were given by the theaters (in this case Tokyo Gekijo) to the audience members when the theater had a full house. This was thought to bring luck back to the production and company. Ten yen was found within the envelope.
