- (About Lamvanein) "This time for sure, a humanoid Neighbor has appeared!!"
- "Makoto" is an unisex name (meaning it can be used for both genders) which, when written with the kanji 真, means "true, pure, genuine". "Chano" (茶野?) means "tea field".
- Chano likes Nasi goreng, collecting hats, and making badges (which might imply that Chano probably made his own and Fujisawa's).
- According to the author's character notes, Chano was originally supposed to be a crossdressing girl, but he decided to ignore them because it seemed troublesome. It is unclear whether this means that Chano is a boy or a girl.
- Chano has begun to suspect that Yūma is a Neighbor.
