The bottle by Tane's foot says "Kintry", a portmanteau of brewing companies Kirin and Suntory. This is based on a report in July 2009 that that the two were negotiating a merger. They subsequently scrapped their merger plans the following February.
The magazine Chiri is holding is "Cat's Heart", a Japanese version of "Cat Fancy".

From Kumeta's Blog
There aren't that many appropriate names out there.
"Onizuka" means "demon," but someone with that name can still be very nice. Someone named Seigi, which means "hero," could actually be quite devious.
And even if these names happen to be appropriate, people often end up changing then to something inappropriate.
For example, take video games...
When I play the game Like A Dragon, the title becomes "Like A Lowly Bug." When I play Animal Crossing the title becomes "Snob Crossing."
When I play Legend of Zelda I'm so bad at it that it becomes "The True Story of Zelda."
"Love and Berry Dress Up and Dance" becomes "Love and Berry Try To Dress Up, But Lack Any Sense of Fashion Whatsoever."
The titles get changed every time I play a game.
I should apologize to the game companies.
But when I play Idolm@ster, the title stays the same. I'm pretty good at that one.
I wonder who his favorite Idolmaster girl is. Probably Chihaya
Fucking Yandere Chiri.
