That Mushishi one looks pretty cool. I cracked up so hard at the Selector WIXOSS, Tama looks quite buff and omg Chiyori. I like that AKB48 one though. And wow the LONGLONGPhone, that's amazing. You can bend it all sorts of ways and it's perfect for webcomic viewing!!!

FINALLY I'm excited about an Index anime!

Accelerator as a trap is too delicious to pass up...

Also, the funny thing about the Nisekoi and Monogatari crossover is that.....that is more likely than getting Kizumonogatari at this point.

:(

Even when I know these are all just some April Fools jokes, I really wish some of them would actually happen, particularly the Mushishi one. Ginko looks so badass with that blade while holding his love, Tanyu.

Mushishi: The perfect love. Omf-OMFG that almost killed me.

No mention of Ishida Sui stating in his tweets that he wants to do a Hisoka centric Hunter x Hunter spin off on April Fools?

Nisekoimonogatari & Mushishi: The Perfect Love were the best ones imo. I knew Nisekoimonogatari had to be a joke, because the budget for all those head tilts would put Shaft out of business.

Some really nice stuff there. I especially like the Nisekoi x Bakemonogatari crossover idea.

Great now I'm hooked on that Kirari Dash game. Collect ALL the Anzus.

Missing Ishida saying he's doing a spin off of HxH about Hisoka's childhood.
Accelerator would be a good trap.
