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. 107: Back!

Preface

Finally back to Japan. Greeted by filled up mailbox.

Eroge playthrough

Restarting now.

Non-eroge stuff

Finished all spring anime without problem. Well, I only watch three to begin with so it’s not all that difficult.

With light novel, finished Dengeki Doumei. Also finished Zarusoba. Now reading… nothing yet. Probably this.

Wasting money

Suruga-Ya sold hug pillow cover of Sana for 16k. On expensive side but grabbed it anyway.

Nothing much else apart of few Kindle books. July has started as well so I updated my accounting sheet with improved calculating method which left me with deficit of over 600k. Whoops.

Starting up auction again so I hope I can bring the number up a bit. There are quite a few new (and old?) stuff ready to be sold as well.

That and maybe dropping Da Capo 3 after all. Not sure if I’ll ever get around playing it. My backlog is already pretty terrible at the moment (not news). At 78 unplayed out of 116, it will take quite a while for me to finish the whole thing. And here I thought I sped up quite a bit already.

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. 105: Abroad edition

Preface

On time once in a while. Mainly because I don’t have much else to do. And it just happens I’m testing a Realforce 87U which for some reason someone left here.

Eroge playthrough

Didn’t play at all this last few days! And won’t be for another two weeks! ;_;

I think I got about halfway through Yoshino route before going. Right before the (apparently) most interesting part. No, not an H scene.

At current rate I’ll probably finish it in two or three weeks once I resume.

Probably will play either Kamiyaba or Mamiya.

Not-eroge stuff

Finished imouto zetsumetsu 2! Looks like it’ll end in another one or two more volumes if following current pattern?

As it’s the latest released, I switched to something else. Another long titled light novel, Yuusha to Maou ga Dengeki Doumei (…etc). Looks quite fun so far.

I should have quite a lot of time to read while I’m away. Hopefully I can at least finish all I currently own.

Still okay-ish with anime as well (except haven’t watched this week’s).

Wasting money

I think I’ve finished the whole K-Books tapestries from Chikotam. Except the clear poster. Clear poster is just dumb. I doubt I’ll get more of it especially if it costs a lot. Maybe if someone put it up for like 1000…

There isn’t much else apart of next month’s bonus stuff which are quite a lot. At least still less than I originally allocated.

Continue reading

Digest Vol. 104: Oh whoops

Preface

I started writing this but something else came up and then forgotten. There isn’t much this week anyway.

Eroge playthrough

Finished Rena’s route! Pretty good overall, I guess.

Now on Yoshino’s route.

Not-eroge stuff

Still going as usual. A bit slower on light novel side though.

Wasting money

Pre-ordered some Melonbooks stuff as planned. And nothing much else? Relatively quiet week.

May finally get the last few Chikotam K-Books tapestries this week.

Nothing much else otherwise. I took a break from auctioning stuff so there’s nothing on that side either.

Some larger stuff is coming around end of this month though. Mainly stuff for next month release (Hatsujou Sprinkle and Sakura no Mori Dreamers 2).

Digest Vol. 103

Preface

Yes it’s late. My time estimation was completely off so this post is pushed to today.

Eroge playthrough

Almost reached the first H-scene of Rena. Wondering if the main story of her route is finishing off common route or there will be new development. My guess says it’s the former.

Not-eroge stuff

Read some pages of Imouto Zetsumetsu 2. Anime as usual and nothing much else.

Wasting money

Continuing spending on PC stuff, I ended up getting some more SSD. I think I now have an extra 250GB SSD…

Otherwise nothing much else. Just a bit of backlogs here and there and some pre-orders.

All the PC purchases still hurt though.

This week was the last of YJA auctions until next months as well. Sold a few items with one selling a bit more than expected. Next month is still unknown with Haco Boon ending their service and no other large, lightweight shipment option in sight at the moment. Hopefully it’ll change when I start again.

Should be fine unless I do some crazy backlog or a bunch of pillow covers (or other interesting stuff) appear.

Digest Vol. 102: Forgotten Stuff

Preface

Early for once.

Eroge playthrough

Started Senren Banka. Dying from dialogues with Mako. The production quality sure is high (this is my first Yuzusoft game). Lots of expressions makes it really fun to read. The face just keep changing!

Progressing slowly, currently at chapter 3-2.

Unless there’s forced route, the plan is as usual: Rena → Yoshino → Murasame → Mako.

Not-eroge stuff

Finished Gakeppuchi 2. Holy shit the ending. I don’t even. Vol. 3 fucking when. Went for Mamizu, stayed for Mamizu and the story.

Continuing to Imouto Zetsumetsu vol. 2. Sure is much easier to read.

Still keeping up with anime as well.

Wasting money

Now I look again, I spent almost 200k and sold about 120k. So in the end I more or less spent 80k for eroge (and other ACHGM) goods.

And then I count in PC stuff.

And then flight ticket.

And then my balance turns complete red this month.

Nooooo D:

So, yeah, although I managed to more or less balance off eroge goods, purchases of other stuff ticked off the balance to negative.

I bought too many pillow covers this month ._.

Next week is also the last week I’m selling stuff (until I return).

Digest Vol. 101: Beyond expectation

Preface

Oh hey I failed to sleep early again. Nothing new though ha ha ha.

…ha ._.

Eroge playthrough

Finished Miyuri route! I was expecting it to be okay-ish. The first half went as expected but then the latter half went full speed on emotion roller coaster. The non-irritating type. A bit on self-inflicted gloomy side but the end result was greatly satisfying. Good thing I did it last because otherwise I may end up hating this game because of the first two routes I did.

Miyuri a best.

With that done, time to play something that’s more modern. Last year modern. As planned, will start playing Senren Banka. 1080p, here I come. Still doesn’t fill up my screen though ha ha ha.

Not-eroge stuff

Due to various PC upgrades, I didn’t progress as much here. At least I kept up with animes.

Wasting money

Bought one expensive old tapestry! And another old but less expensive tapestry. Also preordered some artbooks. And lastly ended up buying Ikegami Akane’s latest hug pillow cover. I didn’t even play the game but whatever! I can’t believe my first doujin cover is from Fate series.

With that one, Ikegami Akane is the illustrator I have most hug pillow cover of. As long I don’t count in covers I’ve sold in which case still is hold by Chikotam.

I also failed wasting more money because people were bidding stuff way more than I guessed. Saved, I guess? There’s also one which I just simply missed because of being too busy managing auctions. When I realized it someone outbid me and it’s already ended.

Sold a few stuff this week. Mostly unexpected stuff including light novel which I half jokingly put up for auction. Nicely balanced up my spending last week and a bit more (assuming everything goes fine).

I think I can still come out green-ish instead of yellow on monthly balance despite spending quite a lot on PC stuff and flight tickets.

And still need to put up some more stuff for auction as usual…

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. 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.
