This actually arrived last week but I keep forgetting to write the post.
The only tapestry I’m getting this time. It’s Sumi from Onigyu, wearing (or undressing) her white kimono. I should play the FD one of these days. Probably earlier. Anyway, it’s Sumi. Licking her lips. Inviting all the onii-chans out there to drink the (presumably) sweet sake she poured.
What even did I write.
Double suede material, printed by A&J. The print is pretty good. As good as it can be, probably. The lines are a bit rough in some places but it’s probably just how the source material is.
Sold quite a few stuff for more or less 0% loss. Whee. It includes a pair of RAM sticks which I replaced with the two sticks above.
Apparently 9-yukiiro boxes fetches some good money. That was an unexpected nice surprise.
After weeks without proper ECC RAMs, I found two less expensive sticks off YJA. They both costed a bit under 20k in total which is still quite way more than 12k I spent for the non-ECC sticks I’ve been using. Those were some special deals though and current price is about 16k which means the new sticks only cost slightly more.
Last week I also wasted quite a lot of money getting some Saga Planets stuff from DMM as I discovered they’re DRM-free.
That and buying some digital doujinshi drained my reserve budget pretty quickly. And it’s only first week of May +_+
At least there shouldn’t be much left after next week. A bunch more doujinshi and then lastly one more copies of pieces/Canary.
Um, I think I sold like one item for about 50% loss. And then sold one 9-yukiiro for about 20% loss?
Still haven’t put up anything else and my room is getting fuller thanks to all the new stuff I bought last week.
So, last month, I ended up not reaching my saving target. By quite a bit. Mostly thanks to preordering pieces/Canary. Also thanks to upgrading my server 😎
Thankfully, with those out of the way, it means I don’t need to preorder anything this month. The only thing on my list for this month is pieces/Canary from Sofmap.
As for future preorders, there are still a few more stuff on my list. The closest one being Cabbit’s Kagitori which may be released next month. I’ve done most of the preorders with Melonbooks and Sofmap being the only two I haven’t accounted yet because I’m getting them from physical store.
Up next would be Maitetsu Last Run. Although as I mentioned before, I’ll probably just buy one from Suruga-Ya. Or maybe even Amazon for the discount? 🤔
The latest on my list is Sagaplanet’s Kakenuke Sparking. I’m not sure yet how I’ll preorder the one from Sofmap. Hopefully the pandemic will be over this or next month so I can get it from physical store. Buying eroge from Sofmap online store is something I would really avoid. As for the rest, there’s no change in plan yet and still waiting for the reveal of original bonuses. That will determine whether I’ll spend 40k or 80k for this title.
My guess is those are voice drama and I’ll end up going the expensive route 🙃
They seem to be increasing slowly over the last few weeks?
In my personal record time of only three days to finish reading this.
There’s barely any breaks, tension is high almost all the time, the suspense forced me to just keep reading until the end.
The h-scenes are pretty nice as well although I did disable the animation. I did enable MC’s voice this time (as I didn’t notice I have it disabled last time). There’s noticeable lack of certain type of play though which a bit sad.
More from Yukiiro, this is the tapestry from Melonbooks. No nipples or anything for this one. A bit sad but Noa is cute so it’s fine.
Double suede as usual though the print could be a bit sharper. Considering the other tapestry seems to be printed by the same company but doesn’t have this problem, maybe it’s just the source? Or the bloom effect from sunlight? Not sure. It’s still pretty good anyway, and at least better than usual thin tapestries.
Sold some more stuff. At more loss. Almost 60%. Kinda sucks but it was mostly thanks to dakimakura. The value drop sure is more obvious in absolute term. Also it’s almost impossible to recover the price once used.
Not sure if I’ll put up more stuff anytime soon. Even though I really should.
It’s eroge day (yesterday)! Spent a lot of money! At least it was budgeted already so it’s mostly fine.
I’ll probably end up preordering pieces/Canary this month instead of next month. Nearby Melonbooks already has no early preorder shikishi anymore so that sucked ;_;
That will kind of mess up my budget. Looking again, it was probably a bad idea anyway waiting until the release month.
Talking about budget, there will be also this Seishun Sparking thing. As mentioned last time, it’ll cost me good money. Dropping Maitetsu LR goods will end up helping here.
Also at current rate, there might be nothing in summer? No Comiket at least. Denkigai… is a bit unknown. I heard some info about they’ll be held in summer. We’ll see.
It’s a mystery at this time. The trend is still going down but on some days it goes up quite a lot as well so that helped compensate the drop. Not by much though.
It looks like a rather normal school club story thingy. Kind of like Hanasaki, maybe? Except the protag this time seems to be workaholic and likes money.
The uniform design this time around is rather lewd. Navels everywhere. And then there’s Nagiko, sleeveless with probably sports bra? And gloves for some reason. And those tall shoes on thighhighs.
Heroines line up seems like the usual one DFC heroine, one DFC sub-heroine, and the rest are relatively big. Arisue Tsukasa is doing main heroine again this time and Toranosuke doing two. I sure am wondering who’s doing Kikka. It almost looks like Hontani Kanae but I’m not sure. Also for the not-blood-related-little sister Ritsu.
As for the stores, I’ll probably get at least Sofmap, Trader, Suruga-Ya, and Amiami. Hmmm RIP 40k. And maybe more if those unannounced オリジナル特典企画中 are voice drama. That will kinda hurts. I sure wish that Amiami tapestry is also double suede. But it probably isn’t 😔 We’ll find out next month. Or on release day.
It’s planned for August release. I guess I have a few months to prepare the budget. And maybe finish Kinkoi before this one is released.
Sold quite a few stuff this last weekend. At almost 50% loss. Yay 😐
As pictured above, I got a new system for my server! New motherboard (ASRock X570 Pro4) and new CPU (AMD Ryzen 3500), to be precise. I already have too many RAM sticks on my desktop (4x16GiB) so I took a pair off it and use it on the new server, saved me from having to spend more money on this. Details coming soon to the other blog. Maybe.
That said, I still need to eventually upgrade the RAM to ECC. Unfortunately the cheapest I could find costs about 30k for a pair of 16GiB for a total of 32GiB. It will take a while until I save enough for them.
Apart of that, I’m skipping Soraao this time because of the purchase above and just generally trying to spend on thing I really like instead of just stuff I may potentially like. Anime is especially worse in this regard as the second hand market is pretty big and it’s relatively easy getting cheap second hand copies.
Next week is already eroge week. Schedule-wise, I should be posting another finance post before then unless I went lazy mode again and hold off doing it until last minute like this one.
New “C98” stuff are also starting to come out as well. I have some budget for it but I’m not sure how much I’ll end up spending. Hopefully not too much.
That reminded me, I still need to pack stuff for Suruga-Ya.
More dakimakura from Ikegami Akane. This one is supposed to be released during an event in February but ended up not happening thanks to the virus thing and then only arrived last week.
That said, the arrival for online order wasn’t actually too far off as I think it’s initially planned for end of March.
Anyway, it’s even more cover of Choco. This time being Valentine Choco (ha ha ha). Front side with exposed breasts and slid open panties, back side being naked with ribbons. She wears knee-socks on both sides which is great. Although the other side is only one side but still better than nothing.
Explicit drawing as usual and as visible from the photo, it’s Shiromoufu’s Hakuou. I have no complaints so far with it. If anything, they have the best zipper part as I mentioned last time.
0% loss this time yay. Except it was because I sold nothing.
Readjusted prices for stuff. Hopefully can sell something but with current economy it’ll probably be rather difficult regardless.
I suspect it’s better for me to start packing up stuff to be sent to Suruga-Ya.
Pre-ordered some stuff and although there are still some extras, there’s no telling how this month will go with all the new doujin stuff which are initially targeted for C98.
And then I still need to figure out what to do with Maitetsu LR. I’m actually now considering only buying single thing. Probably either Sofmap or Suruga-Ya and skip the rest of them. It’s just too expensive and considering I’m so far backlogged on that, I probably really should just get the minimum.
pieces/Canary for May (5 copies?), Torikago for June (4 copies), and lastly Maitetsu LR (1 copy?) for July. And that’s it? There’s nothing for August or later yet. Saga Planets may announce their new title soon-ish though.
I really need to read faster. And be less distracted.
These last two days have been closed at positive which is actually a bit annoying because I was too late buying some index fund which ended up costing quite a lot more than the price when I placed the order. I probably should’ve bought ETF instead.
This actually arrived a while back but from Getchu and they somehow sealed it so I figured I should just sell that one. And then I got another one from Melonbooks last week for a different bonus and it wasn’t sealed.
This thing arrived last week. It was up for pre-order at Suzuya’s Booth few months ago and I ended up buying it.
Double suede material with pretty good print.
I generally like Ryohka’s lolis. This one isn’t exception. Thankfully the background this time is a proper one unlike the one from few years ago. I just noticed they both have their privates bandaid’d, lol.
