▍Shojo Kageki Revue Starlight Fishing Adventure
Revue Starlight took a surprisingly weird turn during April Fool’s with a “Saijou Claudine’s the French Way of Fishing!”. Players were gifted with fishing gameplay and fishing-themed characters for the occasion. I don’t know about you, but it sure was refreshing seeing characters in fishing gear!
