Demashitaa! Powerpuff Girls Z?

I suppose first and foremost the most interesting thing about this is that it was published on April 1st, both on Bob and George (the forum I first read about it) and on a japanese blog (the first source). Basically, it's an anime version of Powerpuff Girls. Here's the first relevant picture:

Naturally, being from japan, it would be a magical girl anime. Solid information would be nice, right? For starters, IMDB doesn't have any information about it. However, there is some information that adds credibility that the idea might be in the works. ANIDB has an entry:

http://anidb.info/perl-bin/animedb.pl?s ... =Powerpuff

The picture used there is the same one I linked before, obviously, but that's not all either. There apparently was also two promotional videos showed at some convention(s). I don't know the exact details of the convention(s), but there are a few clips from the promotional video that can be downloaded. This page is a well translated version of a page with pictures from the first promo and a video of the transformation sequence:

The "Next (Promo story continued)" link on the bottom of that link continues to the second page from that article (untranslated) and has another video of the girls fighting Mojo-Jojo.

Still not a lot of information, and a quick google search suggests the information was released the day before April 1st, but it's been almost a week since April Fools day and still no sign of it actually being a hoax.

Naturally, I'm a big fan of anime (yes, I like many magical girl anime, even pretty cliche' ones), but I also enjoyed watching Powerpuff Girls. I think it provides a lot of material that could be used to make a very good magical girl anime unless somebody goes wrong somewhere. Personally, I'd like it if this was made.
