In an attempt to come up with an epic April Fools' Day joke, we've discovered that being a publicly owned corporate company doesn't allow for much hijinx when it comes to releasing false information. So in an effort to demonstrate that we WOULD have like to celebrate this day of hoaxes and practical jokes, here a couple of the ideas that we could NOT execute:
Shinji Ikari: Shia Labeouf
Rei Ayanami: Lindsey Lohan
Asuka Langley Sohryu: Miley Cyrus
Misato Katsuragi: Angelina Jolie
Gendou Ikari: Samuel L. Jackson
Pen Pen: Sean Penn
Here's one compliments of a fan at ToonZone.net
FUNimation has dropped One Piece and has purchased the rights to the original seasons of Pokemon. Open auditions for Pokemon will be held April 18th. We have already cast for Ash Ketchum and uploaded his audition tape here.
There's a ton more we came up with that were too "controversial" to even talk about. I guess they'll have to remain in the abyss I call my head.
What other FUNimation-based April Fools' jokes do you think would have been awesome?
