;;The humor in that past section is kind of hard to translate in general, some liberties would be fine. For example, this line and the Holmes line is Haru saying lines that would imply her being in a superior position to them, but Holmes and Freeza were at the top of their respective ladder and there are no fictional characters that would apply to her lines, hence Kyousuke's tsukkomi about who are you and shit. That doesn't really work well in English does it? Oh well the past 40 lines were chock full of Japanese-esque humor dialogue X_X
;;If I'm understanding you correctly, then the "who are you" line is a perfect adaptation. I read that sarcastically (as in, naturally, no one presents their opinions to holmes). Also due to different spellings I changed it to ‘*e' from ‘i*' - pondr

However, Kitajima Saburou is a popular enough singer internationally that, though I hadn't heard of him, asking the reader to look it up if they're interested wouldn't be too taxing.
