Digest Vol. 113: And done!

Preface

One day late because I spent the whole night cleaning up and arranging stuff. Not even done yet. I also have a backlog of over 4000 unread feed items.

Eroge playthrough

Barely any progress because of events and stuff.

Non-eroge stuff

A bit late but went as usual. Cleared up some manga while waiting at the events.

Wasting money

With all the events, I think I didn’t miss too far off from my original budget. Slightly better, even.

Definitely the lowest spending between last few event months.

Unexpectedly sold a bunch of CDs in YJA. And even a doujin which I mistakenly bought twice. Sold it for a 50yen profit.

Overall, I bought 672,000 yen worth of stuff and sold them back for 550,000 yen. Well, that’s just the rough number with conservative approximation for original stuff cost. Even then, at 80% of original spending, I think it’s pretty good.

As mentioned before, I’ll be putting up more stuff for auction so my balance should be even better or at least not getting worse for the rest of the month.

Events log

Denkigai 2017 Summer

As most of the stuff I wanted are available for order online, I didn’t rush this time around. Arrived around 8 AM.

Queued first for Alcot. It was pretty bad. Apparently they have some kind of trouble at the beginning. Too few hours until finally gotten my stuff.

Picked up minori stuff from someone and then walked around after grabbing Hatsujou Sprinkle drink first.

And then ended up buying more stuff than I initially planned 😀

C92 day 1

As I didn’t have any high priority stuff planned for corporate booths, I arrived at around 2:30 PM. Most of the booths I visited have no lines except for Sprite and Kadokawa.

Looked around a bit and then back to first Sprite and lastly Kadokawa. I think I still queued a bit for Kadokawa at past 3 PM.

C92 day 2

Spent whole day clearing up RSS feed backlog and planning for day 3.

C92 day 3

First train as usual. Got into hall 1/2/3 at 10:15, visited Yukie.

Was quick-ish. Or at least didn’t feel too slow. Then grabbed whatever I could from that area. Shiromochi Sakura surprisingly didn’t have line. On the other hand Yuizaki had quite a line. Probably getting the Elf pillow cover. Most of wall circles had line as usual though I didn’t pay too much attention.

Jumped to hall 4/5/6, cleared whatever I could. Notable long line for this area was Shino. Or more like I didn’t know how long it would be and apparently it’s pretty long.

Done with that hall, went to hall 7. I didn’t get lost this time around. Takoyaki booth was relatively quiet. So was Nanao Naru. Except that one was because most of the stuff were already sold out. Whoops. At least I only planned to get the set. Quite a long line for tiv so I skipped it.

Back to hall 1/2/3, cleared whatever I could. Notable unexpected long lines were Anmi (Mashu pillow cover?) and eterna-radiare (same). Unfortunately some of the booths haven’t started selling the book without sets so I skipped quite a lot here.

Finally went to station to head for Akiba around 1 PM. Probably my earliest ever.

Later I find out Pan goods set lasted quite a long time. Whoops.

Arrived at Akiba, fetched K-Books tapestries. Not much queue. I even went back to grab more Chikotam tapestry to be sold later :>

Went to Jiku-Chu hoping for this tapestry but neither of two stores have it ;_;

A bit lost finding Tenplant store but then found it out somehow and thankfully it was free entry. I guess everyone went to Melonbooks because it’s got lines just to enter the store.

Talking about Melonbooks, checked out the new Uribou store just to find out there’s new lewd Pan tapestry but already sold out (ノ・_・)ノ︵ ┻━┻

And that’s it.

Digest Vol. 109: Quiet week

Preface

Not really doing anything at the moment so I figured I should write this before returning to playing eroge. Or FGO.

Summer events are approaching! I’m not making usual event notes though because they’re a pain to maintain and the functionality has been replaced by Google Sheet.

Eroge playthrough

A bit slower than I hoped but I think I’m a bit over first half of Murasame route. Pretty interesting reveal which was hinted at Rena route.

Monday is holiday here so I should be able to finish Murasame route without problem. Then followed by Mako and lastly the subheroines.

Kamiyaba is still in line for next title.

Non-eroge playthrough

Finally watched Youkoso Kyoushitsu and seems pretty interesting. Mainly the system which forces dynamic of whole members of the class or something. We’ll see if it’s actually worth anything. Also has a bit of Oregairu vibe but.

Still going with FGO. Waiting for Okita so I still hasn’t done any gacha apart of the free ones.

Finally continuing this ero LN illustrated by Yukie. Passed the introduction (a long while ago) and now almost completely consisted of just ero scenes. Probably can finish next weekend.

Wasting money

Nothing much this week either. I thought Cuffs summer store starts this week but it didn’t.

I had to replace one of my hard drives though.

Sold some stuff for a total of around 10k. Not too bad. I’ll put up more stuff later this week.

Still considering whether or not to drop Da Capo so there’s that as well.

I put in budget for Cuffs stuff and other summer events and it currently looks a bit dangerous with probably record-setting red numbers. Some of them are for end of August though and I hope I overshoot events budget again.

Digest Vol. 108: Busy week

Preface

Continuing the usual “I need to sleep”. Overall busy week thanks to various backlogs and required cleanups after two week absence.

Eroge playthrough

Finished Yoshino’s route. Uses one of the less interesting pattern for inserting the H scenes. Also I think it’s weaker than Rena’s.

Didn’t sure if I should go Muramasa or Mako so I consulted dice and it said Muramasa. So, yeah, here I come, 幼刀!

I hope I can finish the whole routes by the end of this week.

Apparently I’ll play Kamiyaba after finishing this Senren Banka.

Non-eroge stuff

Watched some anime. Picking up Fate/Apocrypha and NTR. And maybe Jitsuryoku Kyoshitsu.

Originally wanted to watch Symphogear as well but I haven’t watched GX so maybe later.

Not much progress on LN side.

Oh and I started FGO (a bit more seriously).

Wasting money

Bought some vocal albums and soundtracks. Last one was a bit expensive. Not much else.

Sold about 20k worth of stuff this week.

Goodwill cancelled Omokage Rail Back preorder and refunded everyone. Another 20k freed here. Not sure if I’ll preorder from somewhere else.

I’m considering cancelling Omokage Rail Back. I’ll probably won’t get chance to play it anyway because there are too many higher priority games at the moment.

While at it, I’ll probably drop some games I currently own for similar reason. There just isn’t much point holding into them when it’s not feasible in the first place.

Together with the games, will also drop more tapestries as well. Not really news here though. Just need to be a bit more aggressive.

My budget sheet still looks pretty terrible thanks to the updated style. Should look much better once my pay this month comes in so I just need to hold back until it comes.

That said, Cube summer goods is coming as well and I forgot to allocate anything for it ;D

…I need to fix my budget before I go under.

Dc3dd (and the whole series) is still up for dropping. Just need to convince myself enough that it’s not happening. Also, 1024×576 (at least up to dc3wy).

Digest Vol. 106: Early for once

Preface

I’m not sure I’ll have time to write anything next three days so I’m writing this now. Next one will be delayed to at least July 3rd or 4th after I return.

Eroge playthrough

;_;

Non-eroge stuff

Finished Clockwork Planet! Bought the light novels because kind of curious about almost everything. Good thing about light novels is I can hold off buying it indefinitely. Except for the goodies. Even then light novels are much cheaper than eroges.

Apparently last week’s Attack on Titan was the last one for this year.

There are still few more episodes for Eromanga-sensei though. Not sure what to watch next season (if any).

On light novel side, still ongoing with Dengeki Doumei. Made quite a bit of progress and I think I’ll finish it by this weekend.

Wasting money

I think I ended up getting all Dal Segno Takano Yuki tapestries, including Getchu’s life-sized ones.

Nothing much else otherwise apart of a bunch of books.

I think I’m done for this month unless something unexpected comes up.

Overall green even without much help from selling stuff. Next month should be pretty good and then I can safely prepare for Comiket and Denkigai and related events.

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. 98 – What’s sleep

Preface

Aaaaaaaa.

Events

Eshi100 (and other)

Departed around 9 AM, waited a bit until it opens, headed immediately to goods shop queue. Queued for an hour, bought stuff, looked around, picked up some mini shikishis.

Next headed to Moeoh gallery at around 3 PM. Not too big but sufficiently interesting. Can use a bit bigger print though. Also, free drink. Probably should’ve came a bit later for Chikotam version of message paper.

Comic1-11 / Character1 2017

First train as usual, immediately guided to wait inside the building. How nice of the staff. Got in at 10:38.

Hit Tateha first. No queue.

Followed by Yukie. A bit of queue, took 15 minutes.

Went to non-wall circles and cleared up as many as I could until 11:05.

Headed to Character1, Saga Planets first. About 15 minutes of queue.

Then Palette. Shugaten tapestry sold out. Wtf. No queue.

No queue for majority of booths in my plan. Nor at K-Books.

Back to Comic1 at 11:53.

Still long queue at Shiratama. Matsurija as well.

Cleared up the rest of my list and headed to Sprite booth at Character1.

Queuing at Sprite took about 50 minutes.

Packed up, and finally went back home.

Dying because of lack of sleep.

Eroge playthrough

Nothing. Help.

Thankfully it’s golden week so I can kind of focus (latter half of) this week.

Wasting money

Surprisingly sold quite a few items this week despite Comic1 and everything.

Ended up spending quite a lot last month. Thankfully compensated by selling all the things. Should continue selling more stuff.

Because I ended up spending much less than initially budgeted for Comic1, my monthly balance for April is surprisingly positive for once. And so my streak of positive monthly balance continues…

That said, I’m severely running out of physical space. I need to speed up my pace of selling stuff.

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. 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.

Continue reading

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.
