The Monitor Takes Charge
- This book reveals that Sacred Hearts Primary School is approximately 25 years old.
- Norman's brother made an early bird cameo; he was in one of the classes when the Headmaster of Sacred Hearts School revealed the upcoming school bazaar.
- When the Headmaster talked about the school's upcoming bazaar, three boys from an unknown class (next to class 5A) resemble three characters from a popular Japanese anime 'Doraemon'. Respectively:
- The first is similar to Nobita Nobi, the main protagonist of Doraemon.
- The second is similar to Suneo Honekawa, one of the main characters in Doraemon.
- The third is similar to Takeshi Gouda, one of the main characters in Doraemon.
- When two boys were running outside class 5B searching for Charles, two boys were seen passing by the classrooms. They resemble two characters from another one of Kaoru's and Candy Factory's works: 'Prince Series'. Respectively:
- The one with circular glasses and hazel hair is Alexis.
- The one with maroon hair is Felix.
