Shotaro Ishinomori Created Twitter

That's right. He created Kamen Rider, Kikaider, Super Sentai, Twitter, and the list goes on...

Want proof? Fine. First I need to explain.

In 1974 Ganbare!! Robocon hit the airwaves. You may or may not of heard of the show, but you should definitely know it for historical sake. Kamen Rider had 98 episodes, Himitsu Sentai Gorenger had 84 episodes... Ganbare!! Robocon had a whopping 114 episodes. It's pretty sad that I know these numbers without looking them up.

Success leads to rebirth. Super Sentai went on. Kamen Rider has gone in and out of consciousness. It's natural that Robocon was given another shot. In 1999 a new Robocon series aired called Moero!! Robocon. If you've ever seen the show... You might have seen the following image during the second opening sequence... You ready for that proof now?

...you sure...?

...set sails for fail...

That's right! Robocon is carrying the all-too-familiar Failwhale of Twitter fame! Look at the original!

Clearly i'm on to something here!


P.S. Yeah, I know that Moero!! Robocon was released posthumously.

P.P.S. Isn't it funny how this show was pretty much a stopgap for Toei between Metal Heroes (1982~1998) and 平成Kamen Rider (2000~ )?
