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 😀

…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.
