Rather than a typical joke, they instead created an original and serious short story based around on the concept of April Fools' Day. The Type-Moon Mobile Site featured one of 79 splash images with text every time front page was loaded.
Koha-Ace: Chemical Maid Kohaku is a parody movie poster similar to Neco-Arc The Movie, and it has the tagline “The Three Koha-Big-Bangs will go down in history.” The joke for 2012 is much smaller in scale compared to previous years, which each had its own site. The movie poster was placed on the main page of their site, and clicking on it brought up a small two page comic that lampoons both the scale of the joke and the number of times Mahou Tsukai no Yoru was delayed.
This movie was later referenced in Carnival Phantasm, with Kohaku claiming it had been animated. However, before it can begin, Kohaku states their budget had been completely spent in the preceding action scenes.
Rojiura SATSUKI Chapter Heroine Sanctuary (2013)EditPresented as a mini-game with text and options, this parody follows Satsuki , Riesbyfe , Sion , Ciel and Saber as they are trying to climb up the 12 houses of the chinese zodiac. The mini-game unlocked automatically each of the houses, presented in a stone clock illuminating the zodiac with flames, where the heroines engaged some other characters, such Aoko, Arcueid, Shiki, etc. The battles were RPG-style and some of them required the user action, such as choosing the character and order for the fight. Choosing wrong resulted in game over. This game is based off the manga series Saint Seiya

He manages to master Unlimited Blade Works with his puppet body, but he cannot even scratch the shadow. Its actual identity is Stanrobe Calhin, a ghost Dead Apostle, who has fused with the leftover remains of the Holy Grail. He has become an entity with god-like powers who will destroy everything in his path, and Zelretch summons Servants from alternate dimensions to combat him. They are too busy fighting each other to actually do anything else.
It has an innovative ten-button combat system that will allows for control of both a Servant and Master at once. Commands can be given to the Servant, or they can be kept in the background to enhance the Master’s fighting.
