Weekly Finance vol. 51

In

Last week sold more pillow cover. Like, one of them. And at base price after fees and stuff. Well that’s nice I guess.

Too bad it’s nothing for this week.

Not eroge related but I got my my number point cashback thingy. Not much but still helps.

Future in

I put up one more cover. And that’s about it. I’ll probably start sorting more stuff up once I finish Kakenuke?

Out

I bought a new phone case because my current one is kinda broken. It looks like the phone being curvy causes more burden to the case compared to iPhone 5.

Future out

I found out recently that Pop is selling digital version of their artbooks in Booth. So that’s more thing on my shopping list.

Still on Booth, not really new but TwinBox is also selling their Teacher Teacher series. One of these days I’ll get around buying them. Or maybe just by the of this month depending on if there’s anything else I’m buying.

I also just remembered there might be autumn goods sale from usual place. That may be bad. Or not, considering I’ve got some extras from selling those old covers.

A.M.R Apolo sweets ver. dakimakura cover

Woo \o/

This is her third cover. I thought there are more but nope, only three. Still a lot anyway and probably the most for single characters I currently own including derivative works (which I barely own to begin with).

Haven’t opened so can’t comment on actual feel too much but it seems like the usual fine deal 👌

I think I still like the very first one best though.

Sakukumo Sofmap B2 tapestry

It sure was low effort photo as can be seen from all the creases.

Anyhow, here’s the Sofmap store bonus tapestry of the game. It’s double suede material so it’s nice. Sofmap sure has been doing well recently with all those thicker, good material. The print is fine as well as usual.

Ideally I’d Suruga-Ya but the material and voice drama bonus nudged me towards Sofmap.

As for the illustration itself, well, it’s fine. Would be better with kneesocks or pantyhose.

I just noticed this is my first Korie Riko tapestry.

Sakura no kumo, scarlet no koi (game, OST)

New stuff post at last! The photo directory says 2020-10-02, and the actual date I cropped them was 5th. And then it took me another 4 days to finally do this.

So, yeah, eroge I bought last month. And this is only the first one.

I forgot to include this in the main photo above

Bought from Sofmap and only there as I bought this mainly for the story which apparently is good? Well, that’s nice. I’ll probably someday get around checking Amagure as well.

As per the title, here’s the soundtrack which was released the same day. Bought off Amazon as it’s the cheapest one. I think.

Update 2020-10-09 01:39: I forgot to mention but the voice drama is all ages.

Someone bought my unused pillow cover for quite a lot above purchase price. That was nice.

I hope that’s not all I’m getting this month.

Future in

Still no update here. I’ll probably put up some tapestries for sale. This weekend maybe… or maybe I should sort out Suruga-Ya first.

Out

Nothing here. At all. Or almost at all. I probably bought some questionable manga or H-audio voices. Maybe.

Future out

Suzune cover is very tempting. I’ll probably pass though.

I don’t have much space left in my room so I’ve been rather more careful in what I’m buying.

That clearly not working quite well though. But hey, I’m trying.

Investments

This week there are some improvements with my overall currently at 9%. I’m not actually sure what’s happened this week but it sure is welcome. I hope it doesn’t fall off this last weekday.

At three years point, my investment rate (as in how much I’m investing) seems to be quite a bit above my initial target which is good. The number can’t be cleanly divided per-year though so I think I’ll put in a little bit more yens before the end of this year. Shouldn’t be too difficult, I think…? (as I’m looking at negative investable number on accounting book as I’ve kinda forced myself buying funds when the price was pretty low few weeks ago)

Weekly Finance vol. 49

Last week’s report has already been posted so nothing here. Someone already bid on one of my cheap tapestries so that’s few hundreds yen almost guaranteed this weekend.

Future in

I put up some dakimakura covers for auction and I think I don’t have any more covers for now. I have some idea but those will require me finishing the game first. Or maybe I won’t and sell them straight away. I’ll figure out something.

Meanwhile there’s no progress on Suruga-Ya front.

Out

New month! I preordered (or soon) the Kakenuke tapestry and soundtrack.

Nothing much else.

Future out

Nothing much here either. Future preorders are for December (if any) so it probably won’t happen until next month. Kakenuke covers should be coming up this month but it’ll most likely be for Hibiki first so it’ll take a while until Shiro and Kikka get their turn.

Investments

The sections are getting pretty dry so I’m reviving this! Also for my own personal record even though I shouldn’t be doing this. In the end I still check them every day just to see the ups and downs.

At current overall 5% increase, it’s still kinda sucks. And Topix fund sure is still a loss for me. At least Nikkei 225 is now better than ever.

International funds are doing pretty well. A good chunk of them are on 10-15% increase.

Bonds are doing pretty good as well. Domestic one is only at 1% but I’m seeing 10% for the international one.

Weekly Finance vol. 48

In

Sold three tapestries! Yay! Almost all of them are above base price so that’s nice for a change.

Future in

Meanwhile no progress on packing up old doujinshis as usual.

Nothing much else so I’m not expecting much. The extra copies of new eroges I bought this month aren’t going to help either I think.

Out

Eroge release week. I forgot to pre-allocate budget for them so this month is ending up barely above the target… until this week’s auction is in and saved my budget. Oh and I ended up overallocating for Kakenuke CST as I’ll be only getting the CD and not tapestry.

Future out

The two releases for next month, Einstein yori ai o komete and Maitetsu last run are paid for already so there’s no worry on that.

Now I’m looking again, I haven’t allocated anything for Whirlpool’s Dragon Princess. Hmm. Actually I’m not even sure if I want it at all. Horns and stuff. I preordered it already though so yay.

There’s nothing for November but on December there will be Clarias which I’m still undecided. There’s also Subahibi anniversary package which is pretty expensive. And then while Aokana High Resolution edition is all ages, Koichoco one is proper eroge so maybe I’ll be getting that as well? Not quite sure yet.

On goods and other stuff, I don’t think anything interesting is coming up apart of Kakenuke pillow covers mentioned last week. I still need to place order for that Kikka tapestry though. Maybe.

Weekly Finance vol. 47

In

Nothing here because this week’s auction hasn’t ended yet. Not that it seemed like there’s anything either.

Future in

On the brighter side, I finally gotten around putting up the rest of stuff which got kinda abandoned after I stopped paying for Yahoo! Premium. I initially planned to just ship them off to Suruga-Ya but considering how well it’s going, I’ll just put them up for auction until I finally pack other stuff.

On topic of other stuff, I’ve rearranged my room a bit and managed to clear my hallway so it’s actually walkable and not filled with random stuff making it barely passable to anyone (or just myself, but still).

I’ve sorted the doujinshi a bit, picking off which ones to be sold and which ones to be kept but it sure isn’t going smoothly. Or at all after the one I did earlier this week. I still need to do it for the rest of my current collection.

Talking about collection, I just remembered I still have some Alice gram CDs which I should’ve sold a long time ago but I haven’t. And then there are some calendars as well. Dating back to even last year whoops.

At any rate, still loads of stuff to be done and I’m still trying to finish my eroge (lol unrelated).

Out

Pre-ordered the Apolo dakimakura. And then there’s other stuff like new DLaction original doujin and Kakenuke Kikka tapestry.

Future out

Oh, I haven’t bought that tapestry yet so it actually belongs here but yeah. And that means I’ll need to kick out some pre-allocated budget for future stuff from this month.

Or maybe not if the auction for this week goes well (which it doesn’t seem to be).

Another future spending is Kakenuke complete sound tracks which I forgot to pre-allocate because it’s obviously coming. I don’t think I’ll be getting the tapestry version though.

Next week is already eroge release week. I think I’m getting quite a few titles this month but at least I’ve set aside budget for those earlier this month. Some are already paid off, even.

Weekly Finance vol. 46

Sold quite a few things this and last week. Including the old server I had. It was quite a bit of loss but I’ve had enough usage of it. It’s actually the second PC I bought since I moved to Japan.

Future in

I’ve started sorting stuff around and figuring out which doujinshi to sell. It’ll still take a while until I finish but at least I started?

As for tapestries and dakimakuras, I ended up writing a tool to rank everything so I can then just take few lowest ranked items and sell them. Maybe. For tapestries it’ll take a while though because total choices to be done is 15400. And that number will probably be increased as time goes.

Out

Didn’t buy anything this week.

Future out

As announced today, preorder for new A.M.R dakimakura will be up tomorrow. Nothing else otherwise for next week.

Now I look at my preallocated budget again, I noticed I haven’t allocated anything for Sakukumo. Whoops. Well at least I should still have some extras left for this month.

Most of my current “spending” for this month is for upcoming Kakenuke dakimakura covers so at worst I can just move those around to later months.

A.M.R new dakimakura

After announced last week, the preorder finally starts… tomorrow. I thought it’s a bit later but 14th is tomorrow.

As expected, it’s Apolo (wait, is it Apollo or Apolo?) with the same costume as her recent tapestry. The face for back side could be better I think but otherwise it’s pretty good. Knee-socks both sides and creams(?) on the back side wow ( ゚ ヮ゚)

Kakenuke seishun sparking! Amiami B2 tapestry

Pardon the terrible creases because I didn’t feel like taking out my ironing setup at the time.

But anyway it’s from Amiami, sized B2, with thin material. Actually this is the only thin material tapestry for this title. Amazing. Print quality itself is relatively fine. Probably as good as print quality on thin material goes.

That’s an interesting… pose… thingy. I actually just got another one with similar composition few months ago. This one is way nicer though (smaller).

Kakenuke seishun sparking! Game + extras

I’m supposed to post this last week.

The game itself and various extras. Sofmap box is big as usual.

And I’m not even sure what the hell with that large circle acrylic key holder. “Yurayura acrylic charm” according to the listing page. I guess that’s a thing.

Special soundtrack is as usual will be rendered pointless once the full soundtrack is released.

Phone stand could be useful if I actually have space on my table.

Shikishi is missing one for Nagiko because I don’t want to buy from official store just for that. That said I don’t even have much use for shikishis to begin with.

The target is to actually play this sometime this month…

Weekly Finance vol. 45

Sold some Kakenuke stuff. That was nice. Looking at the numbers it sure does look like I should’ve just bought them off auction or someting. Although it probably helps the company a bit buying from store (then selling the games) as opposed to buying from auction? I don’t know.

Also sold one other item. Overall it was a rather good week especially compared to the last few weeks.

Future in

That said, I’m still a bit too lazy to put up more stuff so it’ll be done later. Or maybe sooner as I’m reaching my “cleanup threshold” pretty soon with all these random craps filling up my room.

Out

I bought nothing. Yay. There’s just nothing interesting. And I’m not looking for any specific old item anyway.

Except maybe a copy of Fsn+Fha pack but it’s still pretty expensive.

Future out

New month! Yay clean budget. Or not as I pre-filled this month with stuff I will potentially buy in the future.

Those budget still hasn’t included Clarias. I still don’t know if I should. Backlog-wise it’s easy though – I just shouldn’t. My backlog is so long it’ll probably take years before I can clear them.

Not that I worry too much about them anymore though! I stopped considering them as obligation and more of available choices in case I finished my current one. I don’t know how far I’ll go but I’ll just do it slowly and play whatever I want. Although maybe number of tapestries/dakimakuras will still be taken into consideration.

This month otherwise will see quite a few eroge releases with major one being Kagitori finally being released. They sure took their time. Otherwise I’m also getting Sakulet and Tsuki no shoujo. It’s been a while last I bought three different titles in a month.

Weekly Finance vol. 44

There’s nothing last week but I sold two items this week. Yay.

Future in

I managed to put up some more tapestries so that’s nice. I still haven’t done anything about Suruga-Ya stuff though. I think I’ve been talking about this for months now. Oh well. I’ll come around finally doing it… eventually.

Out

Eroge week and I bought some Kakenukes. Those are either pre-ordered a long time ago or pre-budgeted so there’s no impact in budget.

I did buy a new tapestry and some other stuff so in the end I’m closing this month with barely a bit over the saving target.

Future out

So I thought I’ve pre-budgeted upcoming eroge purchases but turned out I haven’t I’m still missing one budget for next month and another one for December. Although those shouldn’t be too bad at just one each. I’m not even sure if I’m going to get the December one (Clarias).

I also just remembered there are the guaranteed upcoming Kakenuke dakimakura and sound tracks. I’ll try allocating some budget for them next month.

Weekly Finance vol. 43

Picture not related

In

I think I sold like one or two items.

Future in

At least I did put up my unused PC although no one bid on it last week so that’s annoying. I really should put up more stuff…

Out

Pre-ordered Sakuret soundtrack and also Whirlpool 5th album. Pre-ordered FGO related tapestries as well. Specifically Mash tapestry and Double Okita tapestry.

And of course bought a bunch of stuff last weekend at Popfes and surrounding area.

Also bought ke-ta digital artbooks. Thank god they’re selling it at DLsite and Booth without any stupid DRM. I sure wish fewer people sell stuff at Melonbooks or Tora no ana or other places which usually have DRM.

Future out

Surprisingly there aren’t many things remaining on my spending plan. Maybe I’ll finally buy some backlogged digital books. Or manga. Or something.

Eshi100 10 artbook (and 10th anniversary book)

It’s pretty much just habit now.

The 10th anniversary book contains some interviews and small review of previous series. Unlike the other book, this one is only in Japanese.

The main artbook is usual deal. Although they botched up printing Shiromochi Sakura illustration and ended up slipping in separate page for that. That’s a bit annoying.

Popfes 2020 Summer, Eshi100 10, etc

Going out during this period isn’t good idea but some things just must be done (not really).

Anyway, the day started with Popfes. As the entry ticket was numbered, the fate is more or less predetermined. At least they have allocated goods for each entry period but that didn’t help me getting a T-shirt for a friend. I did get my soundtrack though so all is good.

I also ended up buying Kinkoi T-shirt. I’ve been considering it for a while and figured out why not.

On my way out from the event area, I noticed there’s Tora no ana event right next to it.

There’s Aquaplus corner, HOTLIMIT/GOT corner, Tony Taka corner, some doujins, Eshi100 goods, and others.

I didn’t buy anything but at least got to see what kind of censor some of the tapestries have. And it looks like for HOTLIMIT, it’s not whiteout but just some blurs. Better but censor is bad.

Similarly for Cute Tail tapestries. At least from what I can tell from the label photo. Could be different but I’m not risking it.

Eshi100 was next and it’s Eshi100. I don’t think there’s any change (apart of the illustrations themselves of course) over the last few years. If anything, one can’t go back to gallery area after purchasing stuff. Thanks, covid.

As I was heading for Sofmap to check on Sagaplanets stuff, there’s a random Type-Moon’s Fate/Extra booth.

There’s car on display as well as some figures. And announcement of Illya Prisma Racing figure.

Onward to Sofmap! There I found they’re displaying bonus tapestries without any coverings. That was nice. Can’t wait to get my hand on them.

I also found the mug cup which I’ve kind of planned to buy and then I went to Yuzusoft Shop.

I don’t actually remember where it is apart of the building says “May Peace Prevail On Earth”. Except it’s tiny so I regularly miss it. I didn’t actually want anything so it’s mostly just to see if there’s something I missed (and nope).

And that’s about it on my little trip yesterday. Oh, and it was closed by watching FSN HF3 thanks to good timing and empty seat.

Lastly, I noticed this time’s Popfes specifically says “summer” so there might be another one this year in winter.
