Digest vol. 244: Progress

There are quite a few news and new stuff this week.

News

New stuff

Eroge playthrough

Non-eroge stuff

Events

Daily life

9-yukiiro website open

It’s finally open! With store bonus information and all.

I’ll keep most of the stuff this time around because it’s Noa. Though that means it’ll be expensive. If I counted correctly, the total would be a bit over 52k $_$

I’m not sure about the daki yet though. Both seem fine but I think I like the official store version better.

Tora no ana C97 Goods

Tapestries and blankets and other stuff. Not sure if there’s any kind of pattern or anything. Now I look closer that page isn’t even complete. Here’s some more listing.

I’m really lacking in news network for Tora no ana. I used to follow their twitter but the signal to noise ratio was more than what I can handle. There used to be blog post but since they disabled RSS feed, I never check it anymore. Maybe I should try following the twitter again…

Weekly digest delayed

Busy rushing FGO first arc for that 30 sq. Should be finished by tomorrow… I hope. There’s only two days remaining to finish the whole Salomon and the extra quests.

I decided to skip reading the story entirely a bit too late. Should’ve skipped the entire story from Babylonia.

Weekly post is planned for Wednesday. Or Thursday.

Digest Vol. 99 – Failing

Preface

Yay the numbers are back. I’m thinking of adding another type so I figured having proper type in the title could be useful.

Eroge playthrough

Wasted the whole holidays by not finishing Cafe Sourire. Apparently I was heavily distracted but I couldn’t remember how.

Anyway I’m still halfway of Kyouko’s route. And then there’s still Miyuri.

Thankfully Kyouko’s route seems to be much less irritating compared to the previous two I read through.

Mainly because there’s no stupid “but we’re family” “problem”.

After this, I think I’ll play Senren Banka. It’s mainly because I’ve been playing a 800×600 game and it’s 1080p. The art itself (Cafe Sourire) is pretty good but the small size is really annoying. It doesn’t help the only way to resize it is by using full screen which I don’t usually use.

Not-eroge stuff

I’ve started reading light novels. Finished first volume of Zetsumetsu and Gakeppuchi. The former is relatively easy to read but the latter is relatively difficult for me because it is not daily life but fantasy and there are just too many words I don’t remember yet.

The writer also has interesting word choices which are not in my dictionary yet.

Also started watching animes. Current lineup is Eromanga-sensei, Clockwork Planet, and Attack on Titan.

Wasting money

I (should) get about 30k yen this week from YJA. Not too bad, I guess?

If only I didn’t finally decide to execute PC upgrades which will cost me about 100k total. Or more if I decided to grab extra SSD as well.

That said, I spent quite a bit this week. Clearing up Comic1 and other events and then two backlogs which costed over 5k yen each.

There aren’t many things planned left for this month (nor next month) so I think I should be doing fine especially if I can keep on selling unwanted(?) stuff.

Overall I’m still doing relatively okay. Nothing like last year’s red/yellow streaks.

Digest Vol. 94 – That was quick

Preface

Holy shit it’s 8 already. This post shall be even more incoherent than usual.

Eroge playthrough

Finished Sakura no Mori Dreamers! Kureha route as expected is the most interesting one. The background story sure is grim.

And then finished Nekonin Exheart! Three days. Woo. So light in story it’s almost nukige. All the lickings aren’t helping either. If only the boobs are a bit smaller. Or a lot.

With that one out of the way (much sooner than expected), next is… not yet decided! I was thinking of doing one of last month releases but not sure anymore. Anything goes at the moment. I’ll pick one at random… for titles I have pillow cover of (yeah I’m still doing this).

Wasting money

Last month was pretty painful. This month isn’t looking too good either. Currently projected number will leave me a bit in danger at the end of month.

Still too early for detailed plan so I hope it’ll end up better for once. Should be fine as long I don’t backlog too much.

At least I sold quite a bit stuff this week. Most of them are low priced stuff though. At least better than selling to Suruga-Ya. Need to put up more sometime later… but… effort…

Sure is depressing way to start a month.

Digest Vol. 62 – What

It’s almost 5 am and it still feels like few hours away from me finishing this last route! I played until 10am and no end in sight o_o Still at Sakura no Uta, currently at 44 days in – about one and half month.

As usual (?), ended up buying random backlogged stuff as well. At least they’re about half the original price! Should arrive sometime later this week. I think I’m currently at yellow-ish? \o/ A bit slower than I hoped but still on track to green.

Digest Vol. 60 – Plans

I’m not sure how much left of Rina’s route left but at least I’m past halfway? This week felt even shorter than last week despite not being much distraction. Either that or the route is just longer. I don’t know.

Continuing the “holding back” project (?), I’m thinking of not getting Hoshi Koi Tinkle. Unfortunately it’s still four months away which means plenty of time for me to be influenced back in getting it. Well, I almost failed with Amatsutsumi though fortunately managed to hold back. Hopefully I can do it again with Hoshi Koi Tinkle.

That said, even though I’m not getting anything this month, I’m getting two titles next month – Senmomo and Railback. Both of which have non-zero probability of getting delayed =D Railback probably will be finally released though otherwise I don’t think it’ll be good for the company’s survival. Whereas Senmomo, well, I have no record of August release schedule so I don’t really know. Just felt like it might get delayed. We’ll see. No plan of getting another bonuses… yet?

October will be Alcot’s Yomegami. So far my current plan includes getting from Sofmap followed by getting Getchu tapestry from YJA.

November will be a bit difficult with both Alice Gram and Lovely Day. NanaWind’s voice dramas are pretty good so I’ll be getting them all. Yuki tapestries as well which thankfully only two. The main problem is of course Lovely Day. Pretty much all tapestries and CDs \o/ I usually get the game from official store though I’m not sure about this time mainly because I don’t need the other bonus which is illustrated by Narumi Yuu. Barring some unexpected event, I may end up getting it from Trader or Melonbooks.

5 more games in three months. So much for holding back.

Finally Denkigai and Comiket! Denkigai is having some weird system this time to enter the place whereas Comiket will have no company booths for last day. Current outlook doesn’t look so good though I’ll probably make out safely somehow. I think. Yuzu Soft store having double suede tapestries certainly isn’t helping.

Digest Vol. 30 – No news?

When I realized it, this week has passed and there’s no interesting news. I guess everyone was busy catching up from all the holidays and events.

Managed to clear Aya route of Delivara. I expect to finish the whole thing next week or maybe even tomorrow since it’ll be another holiday.

Still not sure what to play after finishing it. Considered Quintuple Splash but that’d mean I’m playing two Parasol games in a row which is something I tend to avoid. Parasol doesn’t quite excel in story isn’t helping either. As last few games I’ve been playing are all relatively light in nature, and thus I’m considering something more serious. Current candidates are:

  • Natsu no Iro no Nostalgia
  • One of minori games
  • Satsukoi
  • Kimi e Okuru, Sora no Hana (almost forgotten, lol)

Or something short-ish like the doujin Christmas Trickstar. I’ll call help from dice.

All right, there we go.

Digest Vol. 24 – Pauses

Dal Segno. This would mark my first foray into Circus' series. The actual game, not just anime series.

Dal Segno. This would mark my first foray into Circus’ series. The actual game, not just anime series.

As guessed last week, I wasn’t be able to finish Delivara on time (not even finished a single route) so I just pause the whole thing again and start on Yomeyaba. Now I have two unfinished games behind. Great.

Nanaka-senpai the best btw <3

K-Books usual seasonal goods pre-order went a bit error-y because they’re using a new system.

Ended up purchasing all Yomeyaba store bonuses as well. My balance for this month look pretty bad.

Digest Vol. 22 – To the Bin

…the fine-grained budget, that is. I found I mess up the numbers a bit too much, be it for the past or the future and figured out might as well use simplest budgeting method – count up essentials, figure out how much to save, and spend up the rest. Failure in any months doesn’t carry over to next month apart of for saving amount consideration.

Quintuple Splash. Why is not Chikotam (屮゜Д゜)屮

Quintuple Splash. Why is not Chikotam (屮゜Д゜)屮

Slowed down eroge because of various reasons I’m not even sure what. Finished Rinka’s route and now going through Yui’s.

Planning to play Delivara next because of various reasons.

Digest Vol. 14

Nanaka > *February next year is looking scary again. I haven’t even touched any of this year’s February releases ;_; That said, this December is also looking pretty bad with at least three games in my list.

Talking about releases, I’m not getting anything this month. Originally there’s Ama no Sora Retrospect but it got delayed to next month making this month empty and two for next month.

As mentioned last week, I started on Mousou! Complete and due to many distractions, I haven’t finished any one route though I believe I’m almost done with Kukuko’s.The story is quite good drama-wise though unfortunately it’s the type I don’t quite like. Hopefully the protagonist will act a bit better on other routes.

Unfortunately the CG is hit and miss and the game itself contains quite a few bugs and helplessly feels cheap. Thankfully there’s no problem with Chiitrans unlike some other kirikiri2 based games.

Links and (nonexistent) photos after the break.
