Okay so this is a very random Assassination Classroom post from me, and it’s just about the cover of chapter 112. I’m not entirely sure how many people caught this reference since this is from Louis Vuitton’s fashion collection in 2007, his collaboration with Takashi Murakami. It was a limited edition collection where there are only a few hundred of each item available, but I’m getting off topic here. 
Anyways, compare the cover to 
I’ve looked at the raws of chapter 112, and I don’t know whether I’m reading too much into this, which I probably am, but I think it wouldn’t hurt to say that maybe this is dropping some big hint about Nagisa’s backstory, and fashion may have something big with it?

Interesting, but I don’t think the cover has any real connection to Nagisa’s backstory.
Nagisa’s backstory is that he has an extremely controlling mother who’s trying to use Nagisa as her “new game plus” at the game of life. Basically, she’s trying to force Nagisa into going into the high level schools that she wanted to go to, getting into a career that she wanted to go into, etc etc. Also, she wanted to have a daughter instead, which is why Nagisa isn’t allowed to cut his hair and she seems to make him dress in feminine clothing at home sometimes.

Gamer gate has been trying to use Bayonetta as a rallying point, and criticism of it as proof of a “feminist agenda” in reviews

They’ve been trying to get Hideki Kamiya, creator of Bayonetta, to support them

Well, he tweeted this today.

As a 19-year-old sophomore at Stanford, Elizabeth Holmes decided to transform diagnostic medicine so she dropped out of college and used her tuition money to start her own company, Theranos. Ten years later, Holmes, pictured here holding a micro-vial, is on the cutting edge of medical technology — her new blood testing method allows hundreds of tests to be run using only a few drops of blood. And, Holmes’ methods are cheaper, faster, more accurate, and less invasive than conventional methods which often require a separate vial of blood for every test.As Holmes told Wired.com earlier this year, “I started this company because I wanted to spend my life changing our health care system. When someone you love gets really sick, most of the time when you find out, it’s too late to be able to do something about it. It’s heartbreaking… We wanted to make actionable health information accessible to people everywhere at the time it matters most. That means two things: being able to detect conditions in time to do something about them and providing access to information that can empower people to improve their lives.”

Reasons you should adore Elizabeth Holmes:
She is featured as Forbes’ youngest self-made woman billionaire.
Her tests will revolutionize the public health world as we know it; Making diagnostic testing accessible and affordable for more people (and potentially saving Medicare and Medicaid ~$100 billion each over the next decade). (x)
She is a coauthor on 82 US and 189 foreign patent applications. (x)
Her fear of needles served as a motivator for launching Theranos. (x)

Fantastic! <3

I had a series of tests run at the annual company Health Fair last week. It used her technology. A finger prick. Not an elbow stick. And a tiny pipette of blood - I think I’ve bled more from TATTOOS.
And cutting myself in the kitchen.
This woman is the Stephen Hawking of medical technology. (Or Stephen Hawking is the Elizabeth Holmes of astropysics.)
