Last update

Another event period has passed. Updating this page is really annoying so I probably won’t do this anymore.

I still have the list on my internal purchase memo so I guess this isn’t all that useful anymore.

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.

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.

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.
