Hey everyone,

April Fool’s Day has passed and we wanted to round-up some of the weirdest and funniest April Fool’s jokes from Japan. So here we go!

Japan’s Kirby Portal had an entire website dedicated to announcing that Kirby’s classic round form was changing to a square! They even re-made some of the Kirby Game artwork.

KFC Bone Only Bucket

KFC is huge in Japan, I mean people celebrate their holidays with a nice bucket from the Colonel. So when KFC announced their newest “deal” on April Fool’s day, people definitely got the joke. It was a “Bone Only” Bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken for 1,500 yen ($13.45 US Dollars). Who needs all of those needless calories from the meat and fried skin, right? And if you aren’t hungry for an entire bucket of bones, then you could get a single bone for 250 yen ($2.24 US Dollars). Well done, KFC.

Pizza Idols

Mickey Trains To Join The Avengers

Mickey Avenger

Mickey Mouse seems to be getting tired of simply being the most popular mouse in history, as a picture of him was taken in training mode. Mickey was bulking up to try and join The Avengers. Goofy better not mess with Mickey, or he may just call his buddy Iron Man to help.

Saranzamai Anime Becomes Sushi Anime

Anime sushisushi zanmai

Sarazanmai is a Japanese anime about middle school students being transformed into kappa (yokai demons), and their journey to change back into humans. But the name Sarazanmai sounds a lot like the famous Japanese sushi chain, Sushizanmai. So this was the birth of this April Fool’s joke, in which Sarazanmai is converted into a parody of the Sushizanmai chain. Looking at the pictures next to each other shows that they did a pretty good job with this joke.

Of course, there are plenty more, so we will be sure to update with other funny ones we fined. If you have a funny April Fools’ Day joke that happened in Japan, then feel free to let us know!
