Do the mahou shoujo turn into hedgehogs in this one? Because that would be cool, especially if said hedgehogs ran extremely quickly.

I love April 1st.

Awesome news (assuming April Fools is over).

Wait, what, Sonico? BETTER NEWS. It's looks like a professional parody. Right down to the 2 second fanservice in the opening. She, uh, is certainly more stacked than Madoka.

If it doesn't have Gen behind the story then it's worthless.

(Oh wait...no word of it on ANN. Obvious fan made flash opening. April fool. Good.)

Looks interesting assuming its not an April Fools joke though even if it is I liked the OP. Well I'd still watch a spin off regardless.

As for the original, I want and hope for a second season. It was one of my favorite anime and it hasn't finished airing. As for this spin-off, the youtube video with the new opening was funny, i think. I will watch some of it because I loved the original.

This is an April Fool's joke by Nitroplus. On 01.04.2011, an official website for Mahou Shoujo Sonico Magika, a parody of SoniComi (a game by Nitroplus), was opened with the announcement of it being a TV anime. On the same day, the opening video for the so called TV anime was released on YouTube by NitroPlusChannel. This opening is essentially the entire anime. The title is a clear reference to Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magika, a TV anime which screenplay was written by a Nitroplus staffer Urobuchi Gen, who also got credited for screenplay for this anime on the official page. No screenplay was ever written, of course.

I consider this a joke, until I see it proved to be real.
Reason being, Shaft is only good with lipservice and legservice. There's no way they could do a good Sonico, she requires T&A, they suck at that division.

Definitely an April Fools.
The characters that appear in the scenes where in the original OP are the protagonists and minor characters, are characters from Nitro+ visual novels (Sumaga heroines as Madoka's family; Chaos;Head heroines as Madoka, Sayaka and their other friend; Axanael protagonists as Madoka and her friends in gym class; Vampirdzhija Vjedogonia protagonists as Sayaka and Kyousuke; Ein from Phantom of Inferno as Mami; Kurisu from Steins;Gate as Kyouko; Saya from Saya no Uta as Homura). Sonico herself is the mascot of Nitro+ and the protagonist of the VN SoniComi.

It's so obvious that it hurts, but nice attempt anyway. But, surprisingly, some people still believe it's not a joke, so I'd consider the joke to be successful :3

That one would fool me... But it would also make me rage and rant after discovering it was a joke. So I prefer this troll OP. At least it made me laugh (as it was obviously a joke).
But thinking about it... I'd love if episode 11 and 12 were aired as a 1 hour special.
