In these troubled times, humour never escapes the wonderful minds of the Japanese ACG culture, with many strange and out of this world announcements occured as soon as the clock strikes 0000 hours, signifying the start of the April Fools’ Day.

As years go by, my somewhat intense schedule really does hinder my leisure blogging recently.
