April fool joke? A better one would be announcing that episode 11 and 12 will be released as a 1 hour double episode special next week.

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.

lol I saw so much crap on this April's Fools...
I saw this now that it is annouced a joke though I wouldn't believe it anyway.

But I hope there are real plans for more Madoka Magica.

Happy April Fools, which already is over here in Korea (and Japan too ) :P

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

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.
