Digest Vol. 111: Practicality

Preface

111th digest. This thing sure has come a long way. Not that there’s much improvement in term of writing quality πŸ˜€

Eroge playthrough

Finished Mako route. The story ended up relatively simple. In term of story, I think I like Rena’s best, followed by Murasame, Yoshino, and finally Mako.

Mako is still the best heroine though. Followed by Murasame.

Currently at finishing the remaining two sub heroines. Will go with Koharu first and lastly Roka. It’s much longer than I expected.

As planned, will continue to Kamiyaba after this.

Will be followed by sequels and fandisks. I’ve piled quite a lot of them. Dal Segno, Sakura no Mori Dreamers, Aokana, Rorolog, and Hakoniwa Logic’s Koko fandisk. I also need to finally clear the Quintuple Splash extra H-scenes.

Finishing those, I’ll move on to either Cube or Whirlpool itles.

Non-eroge stuff

Nothing much apart of FGO took up all available time for light novels. Anime is still going as usual.

Wasting money

Sold nothing this week. Not really surprising because I didn’t lower any of the starting bid and didn’t add new items either. Will be back adding new items (and lowering starting bid) after summer events end.

Now I think again I did add Hatsujou Sprinkle (the game) but no one bought that πŸ™

With this month ending, I can safely say this is the month I saved most. Next month will be a bit bad because of events but I hope I can keep the spending low.

Talking about low spending, I should spend less on stuff. And maybe even sell even more of the pillow covers and tapestries. And perhaps books as well. Now I remember it, I also need to throw away magazines.

I’m also running really low on physical space.

That reminds me I probably should throw eroge boxes already.

Still ongoing with plan to drop some games. In addition to Da Capo, I have some more candidates for dropping. Those should help making even more space.

Digest Vol. 110: Preparation

Preface

Three weeks to Denkigai and Comiket. Information is slowing coming out as well. My copy of catalog should arrive soon so I should start updating my list.

Eroge playthrough

Didn’t manage to finish Mako’s route this week. Not really surprising. I think I’m not even a third of her route yet. I guess I can finish it before this weekend.

There’s no change on plan so Kamiyaba is still up next. What comes after it is still undecided though. Most likely one of Cube’s titles. Or Sakumori 2.

Non-eroge stuff

NTR is getting quite interesting. And light beams.

Youshitsu is also slowly revealing stuff. With surprising end at the end of episode 2. Maybe I’ll read the LN later.

Tenshi no 3P is, well, Tenshi no 3P. It’s almost like Ro-Kyu-Bu but with music instead. And more lewds. And consciousness about being lolicon or something.

On LN side, finished Tsuntsun ojou-sama no dere yome shuugyou as planned. The later chapters is indeed mostly filled with tsundere sex (?). Even the ending is still tsundere. Not that I’m complaining. They should’ve put sex scene with maid as well though. Or something like 3P πŸ˜€

With that over, now resume Te no hira no koi to sekai no ou no musume-tachi. Long title is long. Or LN title is LN title. Sounds redundant. At 6%, I haven’t even passed introduction yet. Nothing interesting in sight… yet (I want to believe πŸ˜€ ). It’s got Shiromochi Sakura though so there’s at least that.

End of next month will see release of the third installment of Kageppuchi kara hajimeru sekai jyumyou no nobashi kata. The ending of second volume was quite devastating so I’m looking forward to how they continue from that.

Finished main quests of summer Fate/GO events. Just need some Gae Bolgs so I can have NP5 Schatch and as many materials as possible for CE and misc items.

Wasting money

Another preorder for Melonbooks doujin tapestry set was started. This time from Hisama Kumako. It’ll be a bit dangerous if they continue this…

There’s also this lewd tapestry from Game-Style. It’s double suede as well.

Cuffs (and Hulotte) summer goods store has been opened. No interesting hug pillow cover from Cuffs side so looks like I’ll only be getting Gayarou original and Kurafuta tapestries. Didn’t expect there’s even more Kurafuta tapestry coming out. And no Mamiya. What is this.

Unfortunately Hulotte is having separate store again this time so I’ll be paying shipping fee twice. Current plan is to get everything.

All said, the total is half of what I allocated. The number still looks pretty dumb though.

Thankfully I sold quite a few stuff in YJA this week. Or more accurately three high priced items (and some minor items). Yuzu-Soft sure is popular. And so is Tateha (kind of).

If everything goes well, I should have clean balance again. With almost zero buffer. Budget for summer events is still vague so that actually the worst case. I hope.

Talking about worst case, K-Books’ Chikotam tapestry will be up for sale on Comiket third day. The bright side is everyone will probably be in Big Sight as well. That means I don’t have much time before rushing to Akiba. I’m targeting to finish before 1 PM. Hopefully it will still be available.

On eroge planning (ha ha ha planning), this month will be quite a… few. Hatsujou sprinkle, Sakumori 2, Fuyuuso, and Mashimaro.

Next month is thankfully empty.

But there will be DC3DD, Omokage railback, Farnesse, Onikin 2, and Sakukoi in September. I’m planning to drop the first two though so that will leave me with three.

Sakukoi seems “fine”. The eyes still look pretty bad but at least a bit better compared to the previous one.

Whereas Onikin 2 just looks suspiciously derpy to me. I don’t like the designs for new heroines and the new CGs for previous heroines didn’t look all that good either.

On November there will be Cube’s next title! Many excite. A bit sad it’s not 100% Kanekiyo Miwa but at least she seems to be doing the flat-chested heroine. Yay.

Back to October, there’s none yet. Akabeesoft’s Maho roba seems interesting… just for Kimishima Ao’s heroines. Akabeesoft being famous for DRM isn’t helping.

Looking back I’ve only finished 5 titles this year. I really need to pick up reading pace.

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, εΉΌεˆ€!

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.
