Digest Vol. 115: Bye August

Preface

And welcome September \o/ (soon)

Eroge playthrough

And I’m still at Suzuna’s route! I think I’m at least halfway her route now. About to enter the good part.

Didn’t expect the certain scene of Suzuna. It’s welcome though =D

Non-eroge stuff

I’m done with FGO summer event. There are still the four star fous left but I don’t think I have team capable of clearing them.

Wasting money

Did some preorder which increased the total spending for this month a bit higher than I wanted.

Thankfully there are some unexpected stuff being sold as well which kind of balance thing out.

Got quite a lot of Yahoo points as well which helped.

October is still empty. Yay.

There’s only Yurauka for November. It’s a bit annoying though because I want the retail shikishi bonus but none of the stores have interesting bonus apart of CD. Trader was a possibility but then their Shinjuku store is closing next month. That left me with Sofmap and Melonbooks. Best candidate is Sofmap at the moment. Or just auction the shikishi? At any rate, it looks like I’ll be getting multiple copies of the game.

There will also be autumn event this year. No idea how much that will cost me.

Digest Vol. 114: Slow week

Preface

Hi. Early for once.

Eroge playthrough

On Suzuna route. Much slower than I hoped ;_; (as usual)

Shouldn’t take too long! I think! I shall finish two routes by end of this week! We’ll see. (not happening)

No plan change at the moment.

Non-eroge stuff

As usual.

Wasting money

Pre-ordered Kamiyaba PSV from WonderGoo. Will do another pre-order from Sofmap but I’m still not sure where to buy it from. Probably more from Yahoo! Shopping. Also now I look again, I should’ve bought WonderGoo stuff from Yahoo! as well. They have better bonus.

Also cleared up all Sweet Little Kiss stuff (which then realized DMM has better discount and point compared to DLsite).

Did some other pre-orders like Dengekiya and Denkigai.

It’s about 40000 yen in total.

And then auction stuff went pretty good. The two stuff which I know will sell for quite good did… exceptionally good. With one of them sold for over 500% of purchase price. Hopefully the transaction will go well. Seems fine. The end result is it almost pays my entire spending for last week.

On eroge spending, there are quite a few coming up.

First is Kamiyaba PSV from Sofmap as mentioned above. Will place preorder whenever I get my T-point bonus.

And then Parasol’s latest game. Official store for full game, and then the voice drama from auction as usual. There is also soundtrack which will be sold separately.

October is empty. I don’t think anything new will come up so I guess it will stay empty.

There’s only Yurauka for November. Not sure where to get full game from but will at least get full set of voice drama and Kanekiyo Miwa tapestries.

Pillow cover drawn by Chikotam will be up for pre-order as well end of this month so there’s that.

I hope I didn’t forget anything.

Also still need to put up more stuff for auction…

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. 112: Events time! (soon)

Preface

Comiket and Denkigai next (this?) weekend. And I haven’t made my list. I guess I’ll slowly do it daily as opposed to doing everything in one go as usual.

Eroge playthrough

Finished Senren Banka. Took much longer than I expected at 2 months. The extras are longer than I expected. A bit longer than Hanasaki Work Spring, I think?

As planned, now playing Kamiyaba. Already doing better than expected. Current plan is Suzuna → Nanami → Yukari → Urara → Extras. Pretty sure Urara route is locked though I’m not sure if there’s other locked routes.

We’ll see how long this takes.

Non-eroge stuff

Anime thing still going as usual. Youshitsu still doing pretty good, I think? So is NTR that I bought the manga and now halfway the first volume. Fate/Apocrypha is still warming up. Kind of.

Talking about Fate series, I liked FGO enough I bought account with over 900 quartz and Okita Souji starting servant for 1600. I lost one month worth of stuff including maxed Assassin Scathach and a bunch of other stuff. But I got Okita Souji <3

No progress on light novel side \o/

Wasting money

Sold Hatsujou Sprinkle at 5000. Not too bad. Nothing else though.

Suruga-Ya sold Kurafuta Goodwill tapestry for 9900 ;_;

But on the other side they sold this Soreyorino tapestry for 3000. I believe this still has pretty high value at the moment so I bought it off. Hopefully this will make some good money =D

Apart of those, also bought an old Kiba Satoshi tapestry and some other random stuff.

I’m trying harder to hold back this time around and so my current pillow cover plan is “just” Yukie’s Kana and Clover Day’s Anri. There’s also upcoming Chikotam original as well later this month.

Otherwise I think I’m doing kind of okay-ish. In fact, last month was one of the best I did last few years. This month having summer event would make it a bit difficult should still be positive balance.

I’ll also start selling more stuff once all the events are done so that should help the balance even further.

And frees my room.

Bright(er) future ahead o/
