I wish this was a post about Infinite Stratos

As the islamic state guys keeps killing people, most French medias keep their usual disgusting attitude of associating Islam with terrorism. Some said Muslims in France aren’t denouncing IS enough. They also only focus on Christians and other minorities’ suffering, as if the Muslims in Iraq and other countries are still going around their daily lives peacefully.
After that poor guy Hervé Gourdel got kidnapped and killed in Algeria, french right party newspaper le figaro actually asked in an online survey “Do you think Muslims in France are sufficiently denouncing the actions of Daesh?”. The survey got removed a few hours after. Twitter campaigns like the notinmyname thing unknowingly participated in this too. It’s all fueling the fake belief that if you’re a Muslim and not saying you don’t agree with IS, then you support them by default. That’s like saying every Christian is responsible of pedophilia cases in the church and need to go on TV and say “hey it’s not written you should rape kids in the Bible”!! Or it’s like holding all of the Jewish community responsible of the criminals acts the government of Israel is doing. Or it’s like asking apologies from Buddhists because so-called “Buddhists” are currently massacring the Rohingyas in Myanmar. Or it’s like saying everyone playing Kancolle supports what Japan did to its neighboring countries during WW2.
If one think otherwise, they don’t know it yet, but they’ve already been brainwashed.

Saint Seiya reference in Pretty Rhythm Rainbow Live 25

In the Try Grooving Session, there was one of the trio teams participating called “ケリー井上! with EXCLAMATIONS”.

They were at the Dreaming Session too but they didn’t show them.
On their presentation picture, they’re doing the same pose as the pose three Gold Saints need to do in order to use the Athena Exclamation in Saint Seiya.

They totally look like genderbent Saints too. Right one looks like Aoilia. Middle one looks like Saga. Left one doesn’t really look like anyone but has dat Saint Seiya hair too. Saint Seiya is one of my favorite things ever so I foudn this pretty funny. The staff working on Pretty Rhythm sure likes good things. I remember the Tiger & Bunny cameo in Aurora Dream, or the many Hokuto no Ken jokes in Dear my Future, like the parody of the anime’s opening and episode previews with the preview of Magical Mion:

Chiba Shigeru voiced a character in Pretty Rhythm Dear My Future, so they probably just asked him directly. I wonder if he felt nostalgic about it.

I like how all those references are subtle, as opposed to straight in your face/name drop references. It will get over your head if you’re not paying attention. I am a huge Saint Seiya fan and I didn’t notice it until I watched the episode again. Speaking of Saint Seiya, I stopped watching Omega, lack of time.
