And ANN doesn't do one April Fool's Joke of their own. Shame......Shame.

I think Google's/Dragon Quest's is the absolute winner, but Gundam's is a close second xD

Type-Moon's homepage had a two page comic along with a fake poster for T-M ACE (pretty sure it's a Gundam joke)

the poster for anyone interested

The Idolm@ster anime's site had a fake poster for a full anime of the Endless Combine Kisaragi short that was in ep 15.

said poster

That was a joke?!

Damn it. I would've watched the crap out of that.

But yeah; the Blitz Gundam is especially funny, considering it DOES have a Stealth system.

It is. The logo is the same style as Gundam AGE's.

Well there was a "Are We Live!? Sunday" event at ACE but it wasn't streamed / recorded. It might be real but the poster went up on April fools and there's no proof from the live event to back it up being a real thing.

I came across the Accel World one last night and had a serious bout of nostalgia. Laughing

So apparently both Google and Square Enix are in on the same joke. Wink If you're running a Windows or Mac computer, bring up http://maps.google.com in your web browser and select "Quest" view.

The Weekly Shonen Jump site published "news" about an auction for Bleach Chappy figures signed by Rukia. Of course the auction only runs on April 1st Razz
