Although it was only a V1.1 update of their current Higurashi patch. I do think it was kinda silly of Sonozaki Futago-tachi to sneakily announce it amidst their April Fool's day prank.
I would have grabbed the update sooner if I had known about it.
But there's no use complaining now, as I could start ranting over how I missed the beginning of the Queen's Blade: Rurou no Senshi anime.
I only picked up this anime on a whim as I keep seeing figures of the characters on various sites I visit. I don't even know a lot about Queen's Blade other than it being some series of combat game visual books that give off a similar vibe to IkkiTousen in the way it provocatively displays its characters.
So unless there's some complicated plot to it I'm not seeing. I'll be viewing this anime as mindless entertainment.
