On his shoulder, there is a white bird called Shimama (シママ?) (voiced by Yumiri Hanamori), which is Mr. Kanaria's teacher. It has a grey beak and the tips of its wings are grey. It has a long striped tail of grey and white. It has a pair of fairy wings behind its body, which is coloured yellow.
- Mr. Kanaria's name is the Japanese of his motif, the canary bird. It also comes from Serinus canaria, the scientific name of the wild canary.
- His teacher bird Shimama's name comes from Shimaenaga (シマエナガ?), Japanese for long-tailed tit (in specific and scientific, Aegithalos caudatus japonicus).
