Digest Vol. 100

Preface

Yay late. Nothing special despite number 100.

Eroge playthrough

Fixing my server and stuff during first half of the week so I only managed to finish Kyouko’s route. As expected the route is much better compared to the previous two. The protagonist is still irritating but at least the story progressed much better.

Will start the last route, Miyuri, tonight. Hopefully I can finish it before end of this week.

Not-eroge stuff

Progressing slowly through the Gakeppuchi vol. 2. I think I’m starting to remember more of the letters and words and stuff.

Nothing much else for this week apart of usual anime watching. Somehow still managed to keep up the three series I’m following.

Wasting money

Backlogged a bunch of hug pillow covers woo \o/

I don’t think there’s many left after this. I mean, I cleared almost the whole Whirlpool’s Mamizu series.

That said, unexpected things may still happen.

Sold quite a few stuff this week which helped balance things out. Unfortunately the spending is just a bit too much. Should put up a bit more stuff this week.

Oh and ongoing system upgrade is totally not helping either =D

Digest Vol. 97 – More distractions

Preface

Sun is barely up this time around. I originally planned to sleep an hour ago though…

I have a feeling I’m forgetting something. I guess I’ll just put it up on next post if I can remember it.

Eroge playthrough

Still too much distraction this week. Or maybe the protagonist being irritating helped me distracting myself. I sure hope the other two routes will fare better than the first two I’m going through.

I think I’m around halfway of Serika’s route. With events coming this weekend, I doubt I can finish other routes. At least the next week will be mostly days off so it should help speeding things up.

Wasting money

Sold about five things this week for a total of about 30k yen. Not too bad. Also put up a few more stuff lying around. And as quite a few items get price down this week, hopefully more stuff will be sold next week. Or not because people exhausted their money from Comic1.

Then I bought more of Alice Gram tapestries (Melonbooks).

As Cuffs started their spring goods preorder, I’m looking at spending a bit over 45k yen which is 5k more than I originally planned. Whoops. Gayarou’s new tapestry is looking pretty awesome though (and lewd). Two Kamiyaba covers aren’t helping either. Not sure about Hulotte Songs Best but I guess I’ll just grab it for now…? White Ribbon character songs seem a bit difficult to gather but then again I have no plan to play it at the moment.

Other than that there’s the other Koikano tapestry I’ve been missing and One Room Tora no Ana blu-ray.

It’s only one week away from Comic1 but I haven’t made my list. At least I did for Character1 and I’m looking at 19k to 37k spending. There doesn’t seem to be many interesting stuff for Comic1 itself so I hope I don’t exceed my current budget of 150k. Either way it’s already too much but I keep exceeding my budget so I figured I should just prepare for something stupid high.

Digest Vol. 96 – Quiet week?

Preface

Oh hey it’s 7 AM. I need to sleep soon. As usual.

Eroge playthrough

Almost finish the first route. Current at the last H-scene. Quite interesting in way there is almost no school scenes.

It was interrupted because of installing Mastodon and debugging the installation. And other things.

At this rate I think it’ll take me at least two weeks to finish the whole thing.

Wasting money

As mentioned last week, I put up a load of stuff and sold about a third of them. The total sale (if everything goes smoothly) actually reached six digits. It was mostly thanks to some stuff being bid way above my expectation.

Didn’t waste too much money this week either so the end result is my spending for this month is actually negative.

The big spending is coming at the end of this month. This week should be another silent week.

All this selling do took up a lot of time though. I ended up buying B2 poster boxes so I don’t need to make all the boxes for shipping.

Continue reading

Digest Vol. 95 – Backlogs yay

Preface

My plan to sleep and wake up early sure is failing already.

Eroge playthrough

I rolled Cafe Sourire so that I play. The protagonist is pretty annoying at current route (Kasumi). I didn’t realize I entered a specific route until it’s halfway until confession. They did it pretty smoothly but the protagonist is still annoying regardless. At least the two other heroines seem to be saner so I hope things will balance out.

Play order is as usual from least to most liked which in this game Kasumi, Serika, Kyouko, and finally Miyuri. Miyuri didn’t disappoint from what I can tell.

At current rate I should be able to finish this before end of this month…

Wasting money

Backlog of course did happen. A lot. On various things even.

Oh and also one more Floflo VFB. Why am I doing this aaaaaaaa.

Thankfully that motivated me to finally put out a bunch of stuff for auction. Or so that’s the plan because it took hours just to gather all the tapestries. I still need to take photo, figure out market price, and finally put the up at YJA. Hopefully it’ll bring me back some cash. Or Yahoo Money because I like getting that 8% extra. Or 5% if I end up withdrawing the money (unlikely).

Sold two items this week. High-valued ones so I ended up getting about the same amount as previous week.

There isn’t much info on end of month events yet. I’m skipping Melonbooks because they’re selling the tapestry separately later. The rest are still unknown.

Continue reading

Digest Vol. 92 – Title goes here

Preface

Had some problem with current hosting being awfully slow for no apparent reason. It’s happened often enough I’m considering moving somewhere else next billing cycle.

Eroge playthrough

Finished Mifuyu route. Slightly more things happened. It also felt a bit shorter though.

Currently at Hatsune route. There doesn’t seem to be anything happening in her route… yet?

I should be able to finish it today (it’s holiday here) and then finally the main (?) route, Kureha.

As per original plan, I’ll continue to Nekonin Exheart and then either Rorolog or Kamiyaba depending on what my dice rolls.

Wasting money

Sold a few stuff this week. And bought some stuff. Finally gotten the Kurafuta official store bonus tapestry. That was expensive.

Also bought some other older stuff and games. I think I’m still doing fine. This month is almost over as well. Looking back, I spent a bit too much this month.

I hope I can sell the Karumaruka Circle PSV games since I don’t need those. And the extra tapestry because I’m getting complete version from two stores.

That said, there will be Cuffs spring goods next month which most likely will cost me a lot. And of course Comic1, Character1, and Eshi 100.

Looks a bit dangerous \o/

Digest Vol. 91 – I need some sleep

Preface

Whee.

Events (Dengeki Festival 2017)

Arrived around 9:00 because I was too lazy. A relatively correct decision because I end up only waiting two and half hours and still plenty of stock for stuff I wanted.

Had some stamp rally thing and gotten some plastic bookmarks.

The experience areas were pretty crowded so I skipped them. Not that I cared much anyway. Except for VR zone which might be interesting.

…and that’s about it. I didn’t bother waiting until announcement of new anime and stuff.

Update: forgot that the area for purchasing item is not using order form but just standard store type where you pick the items you want to purchase yourself.

Eroge playthrough

Finished Mahoro route. It was relatively straightforward. To the far future. H-scenes here and there and finally a boring revelation. The h-scenes were relatively short.

Now on Mifuyu route and just passed her first h-scene. At current rate I should be able to finish her route before weekend and proceeds finished the other two routes. I don’t know if true end is in one of those two or another route.

That said, even if I can finish everything next weekend, I wouldn’t have time for another game, even short one. Four days just won’t be enough. Oh well.

Wasting money

Sold quite a lot of stuff this week. Well, I did have quite a few unplanned spending as well so it pretty much balances out.

Still need to put up a bit more but perhaps next or the following week. Unless I somehow get enough motivation to look for the stuff on my to-sell list.

I don’t think there will be more stuff coming for this month. Whirlpool store thankfully (and disappointedly) doesn’t have much interesting stuff.

There will be AnimeJapan at end of this month but I don’t think I’ll spend much there. Or at all beyond foods and train fares. I did pay for the tickets already.

If anything, it’d be official store bonus for DSif which is still a mystery. And Karumaruka Circle PSV Sofmap store bonus.

Continue reading

Digest Vol. 90 – And more

Preface

A bit early for once thanks to good place to pause the game. And I need some sleep.

Eroge playthrough

Finished the main (?) route! Or is it just common route. No idea how long the individual routes will be. Currently just entered Mahoro’s route.

The common route was pretty good with relatively fast pacing and interesting… twists. Can use a bit more dream battles though. Thanks to that I didn’t have proper sleep this week.

Hopefully I can finish all routes in two weeks. Or three. Thinking again, I’m not sure if I can finish Nekonin in just a week.

Wasting money

Sold some stuff as usual. That said, I’m currently considering some additional Himekuri 365 tapestries… Though I think I should hold back on that.

And then there’s more hug pillow covers from Sankaku Renai. I’ll wait until end of this month before deciding to buy it or not.

Mainly because there’s a Whirlpool goods market coming soon. I’m allocating quite a lot for this one. Hopefully there will be hug pillow cover of Ruri or Parfil. Tama’s is already guaranteed so there’s that as well. And then tapestries from previous shitajiki and telephone cards…

Inb4 still exceeds the budget.

Didn’t buy anything much this week apart of the already planned Kamiyaba tapestries and some Sunshine Creation doujins.

As for next week, there’ll be Dengeki event on weekend. It will be my first time going to that event. Not even sure what to expect. I don’t even read their stuff.

Digest Vol. 89 – Good so far

Preface

February is ending! Time fucking where ;_;

Eroge playthrough

Managed to get past through first two acts (and opening act). They were good. Nice amount of mysteries (and surprises) and cool stuff. No ero though. At all. There doesn’t seem be any until latter part according to the site.

Oh yeah, it’s good. The pacing is good so far and managed to keep me awake until very late (or early morning like last Sunday Monday).

That said, I can’t tell how far I’m at the moment. VNDB says it’s “very long” so it’ll probably take me another three weeks to finish? Or even a month.

I sure hope to be able to finish it in three weeks so I can play one short game (see below) before March release which I’ll then go full speed at–

wait.

Holy shit.

Oh nvm, I thought Dal Segno is next month as well but it’s not. Well, either Rorolog HS or Kamiyaba. Rorolog HS should be slightly shorter because it’s a fandisc. Or I’ll just throw dice later.

Wasting money

I decided to put on hold selling or even including stuff from games I haven’t played. I’ll then decide what to keep after playing the game.

That alone managed to bring my “active” hug pillow covers down to 44. Great. The on hold list is currently at 43. That means my played:unplayed ratio for this is almost 1:1. Whoops ;D

As for tapestries, it’s at 270 which is well under the limit I decided last week. Unlike covers, the on hold list for 203. About 4:3. Slightly better than the covers.

That means I don’t need to rush selling my stuff anymore. I’ll slowly go through my current list again later this week.

As predicted last week, I didn’t sell much this week. Only one though quite high value so it’s actually went better than expected.

Overall, I’m green(-ish) at the moment thanks to selling all the stuff and spending less. Now aiming for four months worth of buffer. It’s only one month at the moment :(

Or maybe not because apparently I’ll need to book flight ticket around next month.

Continue reading

Digest Vol. 88 – Of course it doesn’t work

Preface

8:30 9:20. I think I should sleep soon-ish. I don’t even remember what I’m going to write anymore.

New header image! Nonoka best sister. Yeah that’s from a footjob H-scene for anyone wondering.

Eroge playthrough

Finished Ichayaba as planned. Well, the worst case one, at least, since I only finished it on Saturday which is a bit too long.

I guessed only one extra H-scene per route but turned out I was wrong. Mostly. Good though because more Meguri is better.

There’s no 3P route. There’s 3P scene but there is no story or anything at all. The scene is… interesting? Relatively fast-paced as well.

The series is pretty much as expected from Hulotte. Now back to waiting for Kamiyaba.

Meanwhile, I continued on to Sakura no Mori Dreamers as mentioned last week. Seems interesting so far though the writing style is also doing a good job of confusing me.

Wasting money

Looking at the rate I’m selling stuff, I need to pick up the pace much higher but therein lies the problems.

First of all is the list isn’t even fixed yet. I still move stuff around a lot. That prompted me to also postpone selling stuff which game I haven’t played yet.

The other problem is there’s not much pressure to sell them. Yes my space is dangerously low and it’s not quite practical but as mentioned above, I have problem filtering the stuff and this certainly isn’t helping. So it is pretty much ending up as status quo.

Even for stuff I’m already putting out for sale, as there’s no need to sell them as soon as possible, I set the prices a bit higher – more or less at the amount I paid to buy them in the first place (with appropriate devaluation for pillow covers). That certainly isn’t helping but I have no plan to change this besides dropping the price slightly faster (500 yen per month instead of 200).

On filtering the stuff themselves, main problem with hug pillow covers is there are just too many which I like (or kind of like). And a few more arriving in next few months makes it even more difficult. On the brighter side, thumbnails of everything fit on my monitor without need of scrolling around so it’s relatively easy to compare stuff. Or maybe not really, because I don’t have the full image.

And apparently I’m adding even more instead soon-ish. Ha ha ha good job, me.

Tapestries on the other hand, is much more difficult mainly due to the sheer number of them. Currently at 312, it also need some more filtering. I’m not sure where to start from though.

This will take a long while.

Meanwhile, I managed to sell five items this weekend. There isn’t much bidding happening which is sad. Including one cover which was bid really early. Oh well.

Not sure if I’m going to add more stuff this week because I’m feeling really lazy this week.

I sold enough stuff that my spending for eroge (and related stuff) is currently negative this month or not because I did end up getting the one thing I’ve been considering for months. This one.

Digest Vol. 87 – Or maybe not

Eroge playthrough

Just finished Moteyaba. The extra routes are short stories which surprisingly aren’t too bad.

Stories for main routes are unfortunately not as good. The logic just doesn’t quite line up properly leading to a wtf moments before I end up accepting it as is. It’s actually much better

Not that I expected much to begin with but sure wish it’s done slightly better. Either that or I just need to forget the one route which made the other routes inconsistent (or confusing or something, not sure how to express it).

That’s all I managed to finish this week and I still haven’t even started on Ichayaba. My guess says it’ll be as short as the sub heroines which means I should be able to finish it mid of this week. Probably.

Wasting money

I managed to recoup part of foolishness I did last week… and nothing else. Thankfully last week I did pretty well with net income of some tens of thousands yen. Adding to that, I also got quite a bit from Suruga-Ya. Just right around my expectation.

I bought some older stuff as well though which negated most of what I got. Kind of. I should be able to recoup some of them because part of what I bought was just extras I don’t even want (because I have them already).

Nothing else much so far. Next week should be pretty good with one of stuff I just put up already getting bid. And need to put up more stuff as well.

Barring unexpected stuff (as usual), my finance should be completely green by next week.

Continue reading

Digest Vol. 86 – Speeding up

Eroge playthrough

Finished Maina route as expected. Feels a bit slow (just like all other routes) and the core problem is a bit dumb. The different way they solved each route’s problem is quite interesting though. Also I like Aoba’s route most even though I like her least.

Onward to Meguri route and then the fandisk Ichayaba once I finish this. I hope I can finish everything by end of next week or earlier.

Current plan after this is Sakura no Mori Dreamers. Time for some actual, serious* story.

Wasting money

At over 500 tapestries and 100 hug pillow covers I figured it’s time to really stop this. I’m not stopping buying them but more of keeping the number constant instead of growing indefinitely. That involves selling tapestries I like less before hitting the limit.

For tapestries, I originally planned for 200 tapestries limit. And then I tried filtering them… and failed miserably. I’m not quite ready for this so I increased it to 300. I managed to filter it enough but then I added another rule. 300 is soft limit which means I should try keeping the number at that or less but I’m allowing some extra time (currently indefinite) up to hard limit of 360 (+20% of soft limit).

Similarly for hug pillow cover, I’m setting it at 50, up to 60. I’m already past the soft limit though, lol. I have some candidates for selling but I’m holding it until I hit the hard limit which will approximately happen in April.

That said, selling over 100 tapestries isn’t an easy task unless I just ship them to Suruga-Ya. I like having my “investment” back so I’m selling them slowly through YJA instead.

Talking about YJA, current week’s batch isn’t over yet so there isn’t much to report. It’s looking okay though at the moment with three items already bid. No one bid the older items though ;_; I wonder if it’s time to Suruga-Ya them instead.

Oh, and on actual wasting money, I finally bought voice drama I’ve wanted and Sankaku Renai’s Shiina hug pillow cover as planned. Maitetsu’s Fukami cover is currently on hold. Also finally pre-ordered some games from Getchu. Unfortunately made a bad decision of getting Nanao Naru tapestries. That costed quite a lot. No photos because too lazy.

Continue reading

Digest Vol. 85 – Erm

Erogame playthrough

Almost no progress! I’ve been having something to do which is taking up all my extra time until this Tuesday. Barely progressed on Maina’s route.

Also I jumped to conclusion too fast last week regarding Moteyaba. Hopefully the final route will give satisfactory closing.

Wasting money

Unexpected stuff did come after all in form of hug pillow cover of Shiina from Sankaku Renai. Welp. Also the transaction did fail after all for that one tapestry so another 6k less in my wallet.

I’ll be selling a bit more stuff later this week which hopefully can bring my balance to green again. I’m not really in rush though as it’s still in green-ish range. Just a bit yellow-ish. There’s also Suruga-Ya stuff which I finally shipped. We’ll find out in a week. Or two. I think it’s more likely two because they’re slow like that.

On other hand, it sure is getting much more difficult filtering out stuff to be sold. It is the mastery I’m still missing.

Digest Vol. 84 – January is almost ending

Preface?

Time sure flies. Especially when it’s everyday fun (one way or another).

Eroge Playthrough

Didn’t progress much. Finished Aoba and I think I’m about halfway through Miya. Still on slow pace :(

Playing Dereste isn’t helping either. I’m stopping again after the current event which is ending next Friday.

…which then will be followed by reinstalling Windows on main desktop (and eroge release day). Oh well.

One last thing on Moteyaba, apparently the premise of whatevermajigy thing (Kokkai no Gi) is actually the main driver of the stories including for Aoba and Miya (and possibly the rest). That should help me concentrate a bit more.

Wasting Money

I thought it’s going to be a light week. And then Anmi put up her C91 (and more) tapestries on Booth.

I also finally pre-ordered Denkigai official goods. Four tapestries this time. At least this one was planned.

Later I realized I forgot about vol.3 of Otome Domain radio CD. Well, it wasn’t too bad.

Thinking I’m done with the stuff, I went ahead and placed orders for some H-anime I’ve been kind of wanted but not actually included in any budget for some reason.

So that’s all good. And then Cuffs went ahead by announcing the terrible event, kind of forcing me buying the MintCube game. So there goes unexpected 10k.

Lastly I got Pan’s CT29 tapestry which is a bit expensive (about +60% original price). Though considering the event was in Osaka I figured it’s kind of okay. Barely.

At least I managed to sell konomi tapestry for 7k which is over twice the price I bought it for. That said, transaction for one of other stuff fell through. Whoops.

Will put a bit more stuff as well later this week… though I don’t think they’ll sell anytime soon.

I cleaned up my doujins collection and almost ready to sell them to Suruga-Ya. Just need to sort out other stuff a bit as well before actually shipping it and probably ending up with meager amount of money.

Overall I’m at green-ish at the moment. Barring unexpected stuff, I should be full green next month.

Misc

Doujinshi sure lost its value really badly. Most of Digital Lover stuff is currently at 0 yen at Suruga-Ya. Not only that, selling them through YJA is also painful and even I myself wouldn’t do it unless there isn’t any alternative. Only really a few select books can retain its value after a while.

In that regard, tapestry and hug pillow cover do retain the value quite long. Especially tapestries – as long it’s not heavily damaged (which is not quite easy to do), it can practically retain its full value based on current rarity.

Hug pillow cover on the other hand is pretty annoying to keep its value. The only case it can keep its original value is when it’s the rarer stuff. Otherwise I think it’s safe to say it lost half of its value just by virtue of being in opened state. Not only that, keeping it in good condition is pretty difficult as well – it’s relatively easy to damage.

Digest Vol. 83 – Slow week

Preface

Almost given up writing this post (and do it much later today) since it’s already 7 and I have only barely slept for few hours thanks to my random sleep time during the weekend.

But then I figured might as well go as far as I can until I really want to sleep. Like, now (after finishing writing this post).

Eroge Playthrough

Didn’t progress much again last week. I think I’m at almost end of Aoba route which is much slower than I expected. Hopefully I can pick up the pace again this week.

The pace is so slow though which makes reading through the story a bit of chore (and induced a lot of sleeps). Kind of expected but apparently I still can’t handle it well.

Wasting Money

Got quite a lot of earning from YJA. I’ve got enough that I’m green even without including less liquid assets.

That said, looking at my current pillow covers, I think I’ll drop even more. I don’t know how far I can go but current target is 40 including from games I haven’t played. Not sure if possible but again, practically speaking, at current amount it’ll take almost four years to finish one complete rotation. That just isn’t right.

On the other hand, rotating tapestries is much faster since a lot can be put up at once. Over 500 is still a bit too much though.

Nothing much else coming… I think.

Continue reading

Digest Vol. 82 – Slow recovery

A bit late because it’s a long weekend here. Not long enough though.

Eroge Playthrough

Distracted by a lot of stuff this week so didn’t progress much. At least I finished Kanae route. It was pretty good, I guess? It feels less charage and a bit like storyge though. Or none of either. I don’t know. There just isn’t much in term of character development. Though I suspect it’s just because it’s the main route.

Continuing to Aoba.

Also Kanae’s 立ち絵 (what is it even in English) is quite derp. Thankfully the rest are better.

Wasting Money

Still on original plan (more or less). That said I blew up on computing side by getting two keyboards and another PC. At least now I can get rid of this Windows 10 for main PC since Hyper-V is the only reason I use it.

Didn’t sell much on YJA this week and I don’t think it’ll change much next week. May add a few more stuff though. Selling stuff to Suruga-Ya hasn’t happened yet either because I still need to sort out the doujins I want to sell and to do that I need to first wait for the rest of C91 stuff.

There isn’t much change to eroge purchase plan either. Additionally, I’m still waiting for info on Kamiyaba. The release month isn’t when Cuffs usually have new goods so it’ll probably a stand alone item? Or something. Still hoping for more Yomeyaba stuff though (more covers and tapestries please).

Continue reading

Digest Vol. 81 – Freedom

Events

I should’ve written down log of the events I went to so I can reference it when needed.

28th

Denkigai day. And also first day of Palette Winter Party. I went to Denkigai first since I’ve got help for the other event. Well, I also gotten help for Denkigai.

First train, arrived at 5-ish? There are already quite a lot of people queuing. Afterwards around 6 (I think) they did a draw to decide the order of lines to enter the event.

Queuing for Sagaplanets, which after discovering the purchase limit I left the line because I’ve got another help there and I was only there in case extra purchases is needed.

Moved on to feng, bought some stuff and bought a bit more stuff at another booths (including preordering for Whirlpool’s Nekonin). Waited a bit more (11-ish?) until ALcot’s line cleared up and bought the Yomegami OST, last item on my list for the event.

Thankfully the purchase limit for Palette’s event was just enough as well so I went on to Akiba to meet and pickup the stuff.

Thus the event for the day ended.

Later I learned Palette has enough stuff in stock so it should’ve went all right anyway. I think.

29th

Comiket 1st day. With help of magical paper I started the day a bit later at 8.

Went to Russell first. Done pretty quickly as expected.

Moved on to Windmill. There’s a bit of line but didn’t take too long either.

Checked out Toypla and the line was stupid long already so I moved on to Melonbooks.

There’s quite a line at Melonbooks as well but was still manageable. Kinokonomi set was sold out pretty quickly but I didn’t even plan to buy it so it’s not quite relevant to me.

Done with the floor (sans Toypla), I ran to east hall. First to go was ke-ta. Long line. Waited for an hour and done at 12.

Kantoku is the next one, a bit long as well but faster than ke-ta. Took about 20 minutes.

Obtained Cat=Katz book as well and lastly Tsubasu’s book which was consigned at another circle. A bit surprised that the book was still available. That saved me effort for day 3.

Back to west hall, this time the first floor where August and Kadokawa were located. August line seemed all right so I went there first. Afterwards I checked Kadokawa and it’s still pretty long.

Fourth floor I went for Toypla again. Still a long line but as I don’t have much left to do I just queued and bought the stuff I wanted.

Later back to Kadokawa at 14:07 and done at 14:30. Went to Akiba to meet people (and stuff exchange), followed by going to Sagaplanets shop to waste even more money and thus concludes the day (kind of).

30th

I didn’t go to any event. Did stop by at Shinjuku to pick up some stuff and preorder Nine though.

31st

Main day! First train as usual. Instead of going to east area queue, I went to west queue instead. The queue for going to east, that is. Things I learned:

  • no rushing (the area is pretty close to station)
  • convenient access to convenience store
  • and toilets (though really shouldn’t need to use it)
  • and McD (lol)
  • and a less cold area (like, inside a building)
  • which later went inside building few minutes before opening, saved me from being frozen even more
  • with net result of entering the hall only few minutes after opening.

10/10, will do again.

Queued Yukie first because I can. Obtained everything without a hitch.

Planned to go to Pan immediately except the fastest route is still not available so stopped by a few circles on the way.

…which then found out Pan’s line is already stupid long ;_;

Given up, went to a few other circles before coming back to Pan at 11-ish. Hug pillow cover was sold out at about 11:20 while I’m still far behind at the queue. Whoops.

Left immediately and cleared up whatever I can clear up, pretty much optimizing for shortest route.

Other notable stuff:

  • One hour queue for Tinkle (12:30 to 13:30)
  • Yaki Ubu stuff sold out pretty quickly (around 12)
  • Takoyaki’s himself is still relatively fine though.
  • Anmi line was stupid long. And slow (iirc).
  • No line at Nanao Naru.
  • Shiromochi Sakura also went out quickly.
  • Karory seemed to hold up a bit longer than I thought. Except it’s still sold out when I’m done with Tinkle.
  • Muririn went out quickly as well. I did manage to grab the very last book though (complete with an RPS). Well, half of the original plan. Will grab the other book later.
  • Riichu held up pretty long that I still got both books I wanted (it was around 14-ish)

Met up with people before finally went back and had a good sleep.

Conclusion

Missed Pan stuff ;-;

Eroge Playthrough

Barely any progress!

As expected. Still cleaning up a bit after the event so didn’t play much at Sunday either. Hopefully will be back full speed today (after getting some sleep).

Looking Back at 2016

I finished 15 titles in 2016. Some of them are single routes or mini fandisc though. Excluding them, I finished about 11 titles. Really need to pick up the pace otherwise I won’t finish my backlog ever…

Going Forward

I have no idea yet. I’ve been trying to buy less games but as far as I can tell, it doesn’t quite work. At least I don’t have that many planned for January, February, and April.

No, don’t ask me about March aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. I think I’ll cancel Newrin after all.

Wasting Money

Ended up spending slightly less than I originally planned. Kind of. Hug pillow cover from Pan will probably balance things out if she ever sells it at store.

Weird thing is because the month has just started and I did sell stuff at YJA, I ended up at negative spending for this month’s first weekend! Ha ha ha.

Assuming nothing stupid comes up this month, I should be recovering pretty well this month. Bright future ahead!

(I hope)

Now I think again I probably shouldn’t have pre-ordered a bunch of C91 stuff and wait until it’s actually over instead. At least some of the stuff I pre-ordered have clear files bonus. I should’ve waited for the others. I think my current “loss” is at about 6000. I’ll probably end up doing the same for at least half of them but at current rate it’s just giving up without fight.

I think I’ve came to this conclusion last year but apparently completely forgotten about it :D

Eroge Playthrough

Finished Gakkou no Seiiki. It sure is nukige. There’s barely any story this time unlike the previous two. Well, Maika route was pretty nice though. Also can use a bit more of the Dark Maid-chan.

With that out, I didn’t have plan for the next one. I didn’t even expect to actually clear both Yorino and Gakkou no Seiiki before this year ends.

After various considerations, I decided to start Moteyaba. Looking pretty good so far. The art is still a bit off at times but otherwise fine. Meguri is especially cute \o/

Route plan is Kanae → Aoba → Maina → Miya → Meguri. And then sub-routes. That is assuming no forced routes.

I don’t think I can finish this before this year ends especially with all the incoming events.

Wasting Money

With all C91 pre-orders, I spent quite a lot this week. Cuffs store starting the pre-order also isn’t helping. Nor is eroge weekend though there’s only one this month thanks to all the delays.

That and the certain cover also hit my wallet pretty hard. Oh and Toypla re-releasing Hanasaki Workspring! tapestries as higher quality version was also pretty bad. I went to Akiba to get them and thanks to extra spare time I had I ended up getting another Moteyaba tapestry at K-Books. Whoops.

On the brighter side, I sold quite a few stuff at YJA this week. Only covered about one third of what I spent though :D

That also concludes my YJA stuff this year. Heck this is the last post of this year now I look at the calendar.

And I still haven’t started selling doujinshi and other miscellaneous stuff…

If everything goes as planned, I’ll come out of this month barely alive. I just need to remember to not do anything extra.

Digest Vol. 79 – Continuing to another prologue…

Preface

Now with (over) 100% more headers! I don’t know why I haven’t done this from beginning. My writing is still shit as usual though. I know it’s shit because I don’t really want to read it unless I’m trying to recall specific information from here :D

I also suck at writing title.

Eroge Playthrough

Managed to finish Soreyori no Prologue. At 12 days, it’s one of the faster playthrough I’ve done.

The story is sufficiently good which is the main reason I can finish it pretty quickly.

H-scenes can use a bit of… improvements. Oversized boobs and my general dislike of the character design are expected but I don’t find the art style match with the most of the h-scenes. Some parts also felt quite… nasty. Weird sound effects isn’t helping either.

Story and soundtracks helped though! It’s one rare case where I bought this by anything but character design.

As previously mentioned, now I’m starting Gakkou no Seiiki. Gotta play something actually recent once in a while. Well, next eroge release day is this week so it’s not quite latest.

Wasting Money

When I thought everything is going well… someone just need to sell one of the rarest Chikotam hug pillow cover at less absurd price. Still ended pretty absurd and no one up-absurded me (?). At over 22k, it’s my most expensive cover yet, taking the title over from previous holder, Primal x Hearts’ Kanna Kana (19k).

Pan and Yukie announcing relatively interesting covers for C91 isn’t helping though. Those and Mamiya’s Nekoto, Senmomo’s Ino, Otome Domain’s Kazari, Senren Banka’s Murasame, and of course Sakusaku’s Tina. I’m counting seven already which means 80k+. Whoops, shit. I think I’ll drop some.

Really though, at over 90, it’s just not realistic for me to keep all my current one. I simply have to drop some. There’s no way around that. Even then it’s still pretty difficult because unlike tapestries, I don’t go around blindly but with slightly more consideration. Slightly.

As usual, I also need to filter out more tapestries as well. This one is easier but the sheer amount is a bit overwhelming. Still doing it slowly. Probably need to pick the pace up a bit.

At this rate I might as well just Suruga-Ya them all just to get more space. Or set much low price. Probably the latter since the former is a (relatively) ripoff.

I think I can manage to survive another month…

Digest Vol. 78 – A bit faster?

Finished Yorino’s Haruka route! That took about 6 days total which is relatively fast for me! I might even finish the whole this by next weekend at this rate.

The common (?) route was pretty interesting especially the closure.

I didn’t expect the sex scenes to be that long though. The number aren’t that many but they are pretty long.

Oh, yeah, finished Otome Domain as well. Just as expected, I guess? A bit sad by the lack of Minato in the CGs though.

I managed to receive more than I spent. Or so I thought until I remembered I pre-ordered rorolog fandisk which tilts the balance back to spending. At least it lessened the damage.

Winter events are getting closer which means more stuff are revealed. And then my budget for it is quickly getting drained up. Well, I’ll eventually remove some as usual. Just need to remember to be careful.

Lastly, Cuffs stuff announcement next week! Mixed feeling since my finance isn’t that good yet!

This post is looking a bit drier than usual.

Then I remembered I got the Dakikano personalized system voice and mini drama. At least it seems like it’s properly recorded for each order. Or it’s just really well edited that I can’t notice. Of course there’s question of whether it’s worth the extra ~8k jpy or not. I think it’s a bit too expensive. Well, I’m not that much into seiyuu so perhaps I’m simply not the main target.

Continue reading

Digest Vol. 77 – Oh noes it’s December already

The month I hate most thanks to the combination of cold and events.

Anyway, finished two Otome Domain routes this week! Yay!

Kazari route was pretty good. The protag was relatively annoying the whole route though. At least he’s cute.

And then Hinata was… short? Didn’t feel as long as Kazari. At least the protag was only annoying the first half. Latter half was okay.

Now continuing to last one, Yuzu… I think I can finish this before end of this week.

Finishing that, will continue Soreyori no Prologue as originally planned. With four weekends left for this year, I hope I can manage to finish it and perhaps even Gakkou no Seiiki. I doubt the last week is going to go well though with all the events. I’ll see how much further I can go before this year ends.

Lastly, finance! Sold few stuff this week which helped ~a bit~. After all the damage from last month’s release, combined with loads of backlogs (last week as well), there isn’t much left for me to get for this week.

I did grab Floflo’s Riku hug pillow cover. And that’s all. I have approximately 20k jpy left after deducted with all upcoming bills until next pay day =D

The budget for events seems to be okay-ish? At least it looks like I’m going to spend a bit less for Denkigai official goods this time. The Murasame (Senren Banka) and Tina (Sakusaku) hug pillow covers are going to put quite a dent but it’s still within safe range. Floflo 4th cover will also hurt a bit (unless this month is a miss, that is). There’s nothing else significant in sight at the moment.

I think I’ll survive!

That reminds me, I should start selling doujinshis as well… And perhaps more tapestries. And other stuff. Or maybe not since it takes so much effort =D

Digest Vol. 76 – Incoming Backlogs

A bit late because I was lazier than usual.

So, due to reasons I couldn’t play eroges this weekend (until next Tuesday). Or more accurately playing through scenes with any explicit ero content.

As mentioned last week, I started this week by playing Otome Domain. Then I went far enough and reached Kazari route. Then weekend comes, preventing me from continuing further. Not that I’m right before any H scenes but the whole games pretty much is ero content minefield with random heroines getting naked at random timing. Kind of. Not that I hate it, it just prevented me from playing it for this weekend.

So I decided to steer off a bit and started Soreyori no Prologue. Everything went smoothly until I hit a random ero scene relatively quickly. Whoops. That left me with no plan until Tuesday.

That said, I think I can clear off at least one route next weekend. Or at best three? I doubt it but it’s probably possible. Well, at worst it’ll take me another two weeks.

Finishing that I’ll probably continue Yorino as well. Listening to Tenmon soundtracks sure is a good treat.

The plan afterwards is Gakkou no Seiiki. Only one month and few days left for this year but I hope I can actually finish all current plan.

And then! Finance! Holy shit what did I do this week. I ended up buying even more game for this month and end up paying quite a lot of extra to gather all the relevant store bonuses. And even more extra due to me trying to save up a bit. I should’ve learned this few months ago but apparently I forgot about it.

I also need to remember to not bid until last hour to see if there’s any better deal coming in between. Ended up paying few hundreds extra for that lesson.

Melonbooks decided to smart up and started selling B1 tapestries! RIP wallet (even further).

Oh and I somehow managed to snatch up all my initial plan for K-Books 2016 Winter tapestries. Not sure if it’s a good or bad thing. I guess it’s not bad because at worst I can sell unwanted ones at slight loss?

Talking about selling, only managed to sell two things this week. No one is buying the duplicated game ;_; Might’ve gotten better luck if I bought the standard version but apparently I thought the bundle pack is better deal! Or something. Clearly it’s not that good. At least there are quite a few people watching on the item at the moment. We’ll see how it turns out next week.

So overall I’m now at a ~bit~ of yellow. I need at least 40k extra to survive cleanly next month (until pay day). At least I still have some more stuff I can sell. Or a lot. I need to start selling all the random badges and perhaps paper bags…? I don’t even use them. Both are annoying to sell through YJA and paper bags are annoying to send. Might as well sell through Suruga-Ya or something.

And lastly the plan! Currently two hug pillow covers! Floflo Riku and Senren Murasame! And if my guess is correct, Sakusaku Tina as well! Last one is going to be difficult to obtain at the event. I do have magic paper for that at least. And at worst they probably will sell it through online store later. They better be.

On tapestry, there’s the last one for Haruoto Tech Gian series. I should also be getting the Sankaku Renai Core Magazine. Lastly there’s another one from Pikatto Anime, illustrated by Yukie. That one will be for Denkigai.

On games, nothing much changed. As mentioned earlier, I bought another title for this month which is Sankaku Renai. And then minori announced release date for Trinoline. Slated for March, it makes the fourth game for that month. Except it’s somehow 31st instead of 24th like the rest.

That’s all for now.

Digest Vol. 75 – It’s Trap Time

(Game-related title for once)

Finished Dal Segno! Last two routes were pretty good. The protagonist actually did something instead of just sitting around. And Ame route were quite moving as well especially the latter parts. Looking forward to the fandisk.

Considering Ame route is pretty much full route, it’s interesting that I managed to finish it in single weekend. Improvement yay?

As I applied policy to only hang up tapestries of games I’m playing or have finished (just like for hug pillow cover), now I’m having a small problem rotating the tapestries as well :D

…and so I started Otome Domain which I have plenty-ish tapestries of. Minato a cute. The best part is all routes include his h-scene (wait). Looking pretty good so far (first… quarter or common route?).

I’m aiming for completion of this in two weeks. I’d like to say a week but I can’t play as much next weekend due to reasons. I forgot about it when writing about distractions last week.

On finance, I’m not selling much this week ;_; I guess that’s just how it works. Doesn’t help I’m selling it for a bit of profit instead of loss. I’ll just wait a bit more~

Unfortunately Suruga-Ya decided to have some sales on stuff I’ve been keeping eyes on. RIP my buffer \o/

Next month is comiket as well so I guess I won’t be able to build up buffer until January. Either that or people buy my YJA stuff.

Game plans! Looking at my reading speed, I’m buying more than I can finish. Not news.

Anyway, this month I’m getting five games! What the hell, how did I end up with that number.

First off is Yomegami. Usual from Alcot though still sad no Chikotam nor Nimura Yuuji in it.

And then there’s Aki Uso. Just following up the previous series. Getting the Deluxe edition. Thankfully only one route. Unfortunately I think I need to finish the previous two games (routes) before playing this one.

Otome ga Irodoru Koi no Essence ~Egao de Orinasu Mirai~ – yet another trap game and my first ensemble game. Or games, since it’s the fandisk and I’m getting the combo pack. Or packs. Will somehow sell the other one. Also serves as experiment for how annoying doing this compared to buying the bonus off YJA directly.

Gakkou no Seiiki. Usual stuff as well. And finally Maika. I have a feeling I’ve written something like this before.

Karenai Sekai to Owaru Hana. Now I look at the title again it’s a bit… interesting? 枯れる is usually attached to 花 whereas 終わる is to 世界 ┐(・_・)┌ No idea how many routes this will have.

At least two of them are single route games and one of them is not full price game. One of them being a combo pack isn’t helping though.

Moving on to December, there are only two on my list.

Hatsukoi Sankaime – a Chikotam game. Or not,  perhaps only one or two routes out of three or four or five or six. I have no idea how many routes this will have.

Lastly for December, finally another Yukie game, Hoshi Furu Yoru no Farnese. Looks like this will have some non-standard system.

Next on January, there’s only Kanojo to Ore no Lovely Day so far. Still managing to hold back on Hoshi Koi Tinkle and I don’t think it’ll change. Barring unexpected announcement, this month is looking pretty simple.

Looking again, I don’t know why but I’m not that interested in Giga’s Kimi no Hitomi ni Hit Me. The artists line up is fine (Hisama Kumako and Kurasawa Moko) but something about this seems a bit off to me.

February is also only one – Shugaten. Wallet damage is looking pretty high though.

There are currently three games for March. One of them is the delayed Haruoto Alice Gram. Hopefully they can make it this time.

Next is Rorolog’s fandisk. Harem route yay. They better include Kanae-sensei as well. OR ELSE.

Lastly Kamiyaba. I just noticed it costs over 10k! What the hell. They only announced three heroines so far which seems wrong. At least there will be six different characters for the store bonuses (or possibly seven including official store). So… six heroines? The price is usually for five though. But Yomeyaba has five heroines plus two sub-heroines. So this time six heroines? ┐(-。ー;)┌

I’d like to say there’s only one for April (Aokana Extra 1) but it’s too far away. There’ll be also at least Omokage Rail Back (ha ha ha) and Trinoline.

Considering minori, Trinoline might be as soon as January.

Recapping:

  • November: 5.
  • December: 2.
  • January: 1.
  • February: 1.
  • March: 3.
  • April: 1.
  • Unknown: 2.
  • Completion ETA: never ┐(゚ ヮ゚)┌

Digest Vol. 74 – Gain some, lose some

Unfortunately I’m still losing faster than I’m gaining. I’m not sure if that’ll change anytime soon either. I also need to find out what else I want to sell.

Mainly because I accidentally backlogging again this week. At least it’s mostly relatively good deals this time. Should arrive next week.

Looking at my backlog list, looks like I’ll need at least 30k more before it clears out. I’ll slowly go over them… (as usual)

Still going through Dal Segno… I hope I can finish the whole thing by this Sunday or earlier. Finished Noeri route which has nice surprise of two H-scenes instead of just one in Hazuki and Himari routes. Story for Noeri is, well, fine, I guess. A bit irritating because the main protagonist is even more useless this time. And the pace felt much slower than the other two.

As planned, currently at Io before finally unlocking Ame. Reading through her route sure is slow due to her talking style.

According to my note, I’ll be passing four weeks mark by Tuesday which means I’m still too slow. And also means I won’t finish my backlog at this rate. To my defense, I did have some distractions last week and will carry over a bit to this week. Hopefully ending in few hours though! (and not end up with me dying instead)

Afterwards there should be no major distractions until winter comiket comes. I think.

Digest Vol. 73 – Spending hell

Aokana ES X-Rated managed to waste few hours of my time this week. It wasn’t even that fun. The H scenes are, well, DMM games quality. Except for this one. Too bad it’s rather impossible to get other cards of her unless I spend actual time playing it. Nope. I just hope she gets popular enough and get her own route in next PC game series.

Meanwhile on Dal Segno, finished Himari’s route. Overall much simpler compared to Hazuki. Currently continuing to Noeri. As guessed from the starting screen, no Ame route in sight at the moment.

Ended up preordering another game for this month ┐(゚ ヮ゚)┌

Selling stuff in YJA is going slowly but overall pretty well. It offsets quite a bit of spending I did. Pushing price down a bit more would help but I’m not in any kind of rush so it should be fine for now.

Finance looks relatively green at the moment… because I cheated by overspending last month. Technically speaking, I already spent all the allocated budget for this month. Whoops. Or even more strictly, until April of 2018.

How did I end up with this ಠ_ಠ

I guess I’ll sell even more stuff soon-ish.
Continue reading

Digest Vol. 71 – Whatever

Of course I failed to keep my spending low. Ha. Ended up pre-ordering Karenai Sekai to Owaru Hana. And together with it bonus CD from all stores. As usual, I’ve been eyeing it for a while but tried keep away from it.

There are a bunch of new tapestries as well which are relatively dangerous. Usual monthly Melonbooks of course, and then there’s Comiket Catalog bundle as well. Himekuri 365, the 2017 calendar with one illustration per day, also started pre-order of tapestries for all the illustrations.

At least I’ve started the YJA thing and hopefully it can help reducing load of my wallet. It’ll be pretty slow though because some of stuff I’m selling aren’t quite that popular. Well, it’s mostly matter of time, I guess.

Kind of sad letting some of the tapestries go but it must be done. Having 400+ tapestries isn’t quite… useful. I need to filter out the less liked ones.

Hug pillow cover is getting pretty bad as well though it’s going at much slower pace. Mostly thanks to price and that there aren’t many to begin with also helps.

On eroge progress, LOVEREC FD took a bit longer than I expected though I did finish it last Tuesday.

Finishing it, I decided to continue to Dal Segno. I didn’t throw dice though. In fact, I completely forgot about it until I read the post again when writing this. I just felt like playing that one first. I think I just passed the common route and now at Hazuki’s route. It doesn’t seem too bad. Though not Da Capo, I’m finally reading Circus works in its original form instead of anime. That said, I think I should read Da Capo 3 as well since the anime only covered common route and the whole magic thing seemed interesting enough. One day™, perhaps.

Digest Vol. 70 – !!

I had some fever last night so I couldn’t quite post this on time.

Managed to finish Natsu Iro Kokoro Log last… Sunday. Had some distractions last week so it took me longer than I hoped to finish. The story is quite fine overall. With Kotone’s I liked most, followed by Kisara, Rin, Kanae, and lastly Kuon. Somehow also follows the order of heroines I like as well. It’s also the original order I had. The art is pretty much as expected from Shiromochi Sakura. Really good. The H-scenes are also just about right length though can use some sound effects.

The main problem I have is there’s no option to have voice playback not to stop when I move dialogue forward. And the other one is it’s missing function to jump back.

As originally planned, currently playing through Loverec Mini Theater. Didn’t expect it to be just extra H-scenes (and one REC mode contest winner scenario). There’s prologue as well but it’s really short. At this rate I should be able to finish it tonight. I probably should’ve guessed it considering it costs 2200.

After finishing it and then Quintuple Splash new extras (this one is free), I’ll move on to…

I’m not sure yet! Ha ha ha. Probably Koiimo as I mentioned earlier. Or maybe Dal Segno for some variation. Perhaps even Amairo Islenauts! I don’t know. I’ll throw dice later to decide it.

feng failed to finish Gakkou no Seiiki on time and thus delayed to November, making this month release some kind of refresh release month for me.

I mentioned in last post I wasn’t sure if I want to apply for credit card… and ended up applying for it :D And accepted. Yay 7k (and two months of premium) bonus.

With premium on hand, I immediately started selling some stuff. The test items already sold and now currently finishing the transaction. If everything goes well, I’ll move on to finally selling this “for sale” pile of stuff I slowly piled over course of few weeks.

I managed to not spend too much money last week and I hope this will keep up until end of this month. Barring unexpected thing, I should have additional one month worth of spare… or not. I need to pay for contract extension of my apartment :(

Perhaps next month! (every single time)

Continue reading

Digest Vol. 69 – Whoops, again

Ended up spending about additional 20k for eroge stuff this month 8D And another 12k for an older release – Natsu Uso. Pretty dumb considering I’m paying full price for that now and I did pre-order it before ended up cancelling it because of lack of cash… was it? I don’t exactly remember.

That and there is additional 7k spending for another tapestry of DC3WY and hug pillow cover from ef. Doesn’t help Moetion Works also started pre-order for two life size shapestries illustrated by Ryohka and costed 13k each.

Thankfully my spending for Parasol’s Lovely Day and NanaWind’s Alice Gram store bonuses is much lower than I initially allocated. Doesn’t change the fact that I’m walking on dangerous line between yellow and green finance state though. At least it’s not between yellow and red.

So I’m getting three titles for this month. First is the continuation of feng’s Seiiki series, Gakkou no Seiiki. Finally getting the deluxe edition after all the previous normal editions. Because Maika.

Secondly it’s rather unexpected but I’m getting the latest re-release of Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke o which contains H scenes. Apparently the previous release of this title was all ages. And was for Android which then later translated and ported by MangaGamer to Windows, Linux, and Mac OS. It wasn’t even on my radar until I saw the tweet saying it contains a double suede tapestry. I don’t even have Peco tapestry at all so I figured this is the rare chance of getting one. So I did. Both Getchu (with tapestry) and Sofmap (no tapestry). For voice drama. Collection, etc.

Lastly it’s the one I’ve been considering for a long while and then got annoyed by it. Pretty much similar to DC3WY, this time it’s Reminiscence Collector’s Edition. At least it doesn’t have long tail of previous installments like Da Capo series. Main reason is the same as the one above :D Double suede tapestry is dangerous. Gotten some older voice drama as well while at it which added the cost by about 3k.

That’s it for October. As for November, it’s even worse, of course. First off is the lightest one, Alcot’s Yomegami. That reminds me, I should play Loverec Fandics. Anyway, getting it off Sofmap and YJA’d Getchu tapestry. Considered Goodwill and Melonbooks a bit but figured I should skip them. Suimya sure has gotten better though.

And then NanaWind’s latest game, Haruoto Alice Gram. Sure wish they stop doing a whole-balloon heroines but I don’t think that’s going to happen anytime soon. Wouldn’t get this if not for Nanao Naru. I’m getting the full game from Trader. As for other bonuses, I’m getting all voice drama as usual and then the other tapestry of Yuki. No news on official store bonus yet.

Lastly of course Parasol’s latest series – Kanojo to Ore no Lovely Day(s) – which is illustrated by Chikotam (and the other one I don’t really care about). Getting the game itself from Melonbooks and YJA’d the rest. Of course it’s all voice drama and Chikotam tapestries. That hit my wallet the most, by the way though still about the usual amount for this kind of stuff – 6 tapestries and 3 voice dramas for 24k. Now I look again, it’s actually less than Floral Flowlove stuff which was 25k. Whoops.

…and then I just realized I spent that much for Floral Flowlove.

December is for another Chikotam’s Hatsukoi Sankaime from Windmill and Yukie’s Hoshifuru Yoru no Farnese from Miti. Former only has two stores for Chikotam and the latter is still unknown.

What’s happened to my less backlog plan…

Talking about backlog, currently at one last route for Natsu Iro Kokoro Log (Kisara). Kotone’s route is sufficiently interesting, and so are Kanae and Rin. Kuon’s route is the least interesting so far and doesn’t help she’s only getting as many H scenes as Kanae which is a subheroine. I actually managed to finish Rin in two days so I hope I can do it again for Kisara as it’s holiday here on Monday.

Afterwards I initially planned for another game which I have multiple hug pillow cover of but I guess I should take a small break by finishing Quintuple Splash’s latest extra scenes and Loverec’s Mini Fandisc. Shouldn’t take too long (a week?) and then back to usual program.

It currently looks something like this:

  • Amairo Islenauts (2)
  • Primal x Hearts (2)
  • Koisuru Kanojo no Bukiyou na Butai (2)
  • D. S. Dal Segno (2)
  • Sakura no Mori Dreamers (2)
  • Koiimo Sweet Days (3)
  • Himawari no Kyoukai to Nagai Natsuyasumi (3)
  • Imouto no Okage de Motesugite Yabai (4)

I don’t know yet, depends on what kind of story I want to read, I guess? I’ll probably end up with either Koiimo or Sakura no Mori Dreamers. Or Floral Flowlove since I think I’ll end up with three hug pillow covers from it.

Oh wow that was long.

YJA, yes, I did plan on getting Yahoo! Premium and start selling stuff there. Except I haven’t yet because there’s no interesting promo going on ;_; The only remotely interesting one is their credit card with 7k points and two months of premium. Except I’m not sure I want to apply with my current cash condition. Try again next month, I guess?

Digest Vol. 68 – Alive

Apparently I get to stay alive a bit longer :’) It was just some cold with a bit of bacterial infection. Treatment for that last part was quite expensive though.

I think I’m at halfway done through Kotone’s route. Seems to be pretty much a standard story. At least the virtual world setting do help making things a bit more interesting.

Next weekend is a long weekend so I hope I can finish the entire game by then. Finishing this, I think I’ll continue to Moteyaba (+Ichayaba) to unlock (?) access to four hug pillow covers which is the most I own for a series. Or something else. I’m not quite sure yet.

As mentioned earlier, my medication spending went a bit over and made me end up with less spare money than I initially expected. At least I did manage to save a bit higher last month than average of this year. I mean, I’m currently averaging at negative. Whoops. If nothing stupid comes out (like, backlog) I should be able to stay safe this month. Probably not saving as much as last month though because I must pay for extension of my current apartment’s contract.

Continue reading

Digest Vol. 67 – Back

Yay I’m still alive and finally back. Not quite in full health with a bit of blood in my nasal mucus and stuff but at least I can type something here. I probably better go to hospital sometime soon, though.

Cleared up my twitter backlog and currently continuing with Rorolog. I think I’m currently halfway through Kuon’s route?

On finance side, I’m not quite sure where I’m at. Without counting future purchases, it looks quite green. But then there’s some large-ish core expense with deadline in two months which if combined with the future purchases, turns my finance red again. Unless I count on next month’s income which results in green even with three months worth of buffer. So I guess I can call this green? I just need to lightly hold out until the next pay day to be entirely safe.

I do need to hold back regardless <_<

For hug pillow covers, at current rate, it’ll take me about two years to complete cycle of hug pillow covers with biweekly rotation. Thankfully there isn’t much on my backlog list anymore. And I’m trying to not buy additional covers… unless it’s really good? We’ll see if I can fight off the temptation.

On tapestries side, it’s kind of worse though since the entry cost is much lower. That said, I’ll start selling off some of my less favorite ones next month. And then go buy even more =D Ha ha ha. This plan isn’t going to work; not that I expected it to ever do. At least I’ll regain some cash if I manage to sell some, I guess.

As for games, it seems to be slowing down by itself except for one part – I ended up buying DC3WY. Considering how much backlog I need to clear first before reaching that, I doubt I’ll ever actually play it :D Well, the main target was just the Trader tapestry though. Next month there will be just Gakkou no Seiiki thanks to delay of Yomegami… which means there are three games for November – Yomegami, Alicegram, and Lovely Day. December is still unknown though with at least Hatsukoi Sankaime. One of the unknowns is Omokage Rail Back. It currently says 2016 Winter which could be anytime between December and March. There’s also Hulotte’s next game with same release date. And lastly Palette’s latest game – 9 -nine- (or whatever the title is). Thankfully there’s nothing on my radar yet for January and later.

Wow that was quite long.
