A.M.R 2021-03 Taruto B2 Tapestry

Apparently I forgot to post about this. I even forgot to take photo of this at all.

It’s Taruto. In her usual Alice in Wonderland attire except way sexier. Way more revealing. Which is nice. Could use smaller breasts but I can make exception for her.

I think it would be better if she’s zoomed in a bit more.

Nice Choco and Apolo pillow on bottom left. What are those pills at the bottom though…

On material and print quality, it’s A.M.R usual… which means it’s a bit on thin side despite being double suede. The print quality itself is at least pretty good.

Senkou no Clarias Tora no Ana B2 Tapestry

It sure took me a very long while to finally open this. I’ve even finished the game.

Camus. It’s so nice they kept her socks on. Too bad just the only remains of her detective attire are the shorts and hat. Cape where (屮゜Д゜)屮

Otherwise nice expression and pose.

It looked better than I initially thought. I just noticed her underwears here are different compared to her first H-scene.

Double suede material and pretty good print quality. No complaint there.

I wonder if they’ll make more Clarias goods… A dakimakura cover would be nice.

Weekly Finance vol. 76

In

Still nothing.

Future in

Uh, I planned something this weekend but ended up cleaning up my room instead.

Maybe next weekend…

Out

This is very tempting but I think I’ll pass…

So, yeah, nothing this week. Good, I guess? With Air Comiket (or whatever they call it this time) coming up end of this month.

Future out

As mentioned above, Golden Week event is coming up. There’s at least this doujinshi and Eshi 100 book.

Talking about Eshi 100 book, this year will be the first time of me not attending it. Virus and all is pretty bad. I shouldn’t have last year either but I bought the ticket already and the scope hasn’t been quite as clear as now. Although considering current cases count, I wouldn’t be surprised if government call another emergency situation sooner or later.

Meanwhile on eroge, there’s still nothing interesting came up. That said, I completely forgot about Fuyukuru. I still haven’t played previous titles though so I’m not sure what to do about that. Maybe if I somehow manage to catch up before it’s released…

Investments

30.58% this week. A bit up. It was down for a few days but still at positive overall. iDeCo was also up. A bit higher at 29.17% (15.63% yield).

Smooth sailing so far. Hopefully nothing terrible happens… or maybe it’s fine up to a point. I can even stock up some more funds if that happens.

…or maybe I should just go ahead and buy some stuff already.

Weekly Finance vol. 75

In

Nothing this week.

Future in

I haven’t done anything this weekend. Mainly because I’m busy finishing up the FGO tower event.

In addition to unused tapestries, I also need to clean up a bunch of PC stuff to sell. There’s one whole PC set I can sell now. It’s got some good stuff™ in it. It’s missing a good GPU though.

Out

There’s Otona no Moeoh released this week. Also I bought one of Conan ending single. Mainly to see what I get for the random acrylic figure.

Nothing else much otherwise.

Future out

Interestingly there’s nothing here as well.

Extra

This sure is a rather empty week. On eroge side, at least. On PC side I’ve been moving things around. I’ve even got a wireless adapter for my controller. Now I can have it always connected and not have the stupid cable dangling around. I’m only missing the rechargeable battery which is currently on the way.

Investments

29.88% this week. That’s a lot of ups. Now I think back, it seemed to close at mostly up the entire week. Similarly for iDeCo at 27.78% (14.95% yield).

I should probably start throwing some money again this month.

Sei no Shoujo

The only title I bought this month. Looking again, it sure is huge o_o

Bought from Amazon because cheap. So cheap they sent it using normal mail just padded envelope. Thankfully the shikishi arrived in one piece.

The first one hasn’t even arrived for me so it’ll be a long while until I finally play this…

Weekly Finance vol. 74

In

Nothing for last week but at least sold two things this week. For about 55% loss. Yay.

Future in

Still nothing here. Maybe sometime this week as together with sorting new tapestries.

Out

Bought a bunch of random stuff because I had some extra left… or so I thought until certain company started pre-order for two new pillow covers. Whoops.

Also bought Argonauts first and last titles of their Bishoujo Gakuen series.

Future out

I said Drapri 2 last week but looking again I’ve already skipped Love+Plus due to soft denchi crap so maybe I’ll just wait for its complete pack.

Which means there’s nothing here for a while. That said, Yuzusoft should be announcing their next work anytime soon now.

Investments

(forgot about this section lol)

25.57% this week which is a bit down compared to last week. It’s been constantly down this week except last day which was a bit up.

It’s even worse for iDeCo at 24.07% (13.78% yield) which is over two percent down.

Weekly Finance vol. 73

In

Nothing new here but at least last week’s transactions were all completely without a hitch.

Future in

Still haven’t done anything for this.

Out

Nothing major here.

I did watch Conan’s Akai Family Recap Movie. By which I learned the cost went up by 100 yen. The movie itself is pretty interesting summary for me because I haven’t followed the series at all. Upcoming movie will involve that family so it’s a nice informative movie. A rather expensive one though.

Future out

Drapri 2 website is open. It’s scheduled for June so I guess that’s my sole upcoming eroge for now. The horns though… They would be way better without! Especially liked Sango (design-wise at least).

Investments

26.38% this week. It has been going relatively well until things dropped by quite a lot today.

27.20% (15.43% yield) for iDeCo which is up from last week by over 2%. Interesting it went up when my main account went down. It’s got slightly different portfolio which probably explains why.

Kakenuke Seishun Sparking! Hijiri Kikka Valentine 2021 (ecchi ver.) Acrylic Figure

About one month late valentine. I don’t think I’ve ever bought acrylic figure by itself. Usually as bonus of other stuff.

It’s Kikka. In maid uniform with breasts exposed. And thighhighs. That “I love you” text at the bottom is a nice touch.

Constructed!

Hopefully I’ll remember to dust her frequent enough as I don’t have any showcase. That’s one reason I prefer tapestries to begin with anyway.

That said, the size is kinda small especially as I put her right next to Taruto acrylic clock.

A.M.R 2021-03 Kumako Dakimakura Cover

Apparently it’s supposed to arrive next month but some reason already arrived? It’s also arrived for others.

I haven’t opened it but it should be the usual stuff. The expression could be better though especially the back side. I think I still prefer Apolo and Choco over her. We’ll see if she gets better later.

That reminded me Marble hasn’t appeared for a long while…

Extra photo.

It sure is nice having both side lewd.

Weekly Finance vol. 72

In

Sold some more stuff this and last week. Three and two items each which is not a lot but I don’t have many item left anyway. Last week was at 30% loss and this week is 60%. Pretty terrible all right. Not that I expected much.

Not auction but I also finally sold my old phone to Iosys. The process was pretty simple and I got the minimum amount they guaranteed. Mainly due to missing accessories and some defects.

Future in

I probably should get around putting up more stuff for auction sometime. And I still haven’t done the Suruga-Ya thing.

Out

Rather unexpected dakimakura, Alice from Pieces. Dakimakura of loli character is pretty rare for Whirlpool. Apparently the last one was many years ago Melis from Lunaris Filia. Although in term of flats, the most recent one was Shizuku from Hatsujou Sprinkle. This is also their first title where all the heroines get dakimakura cover. Also I probably should get around playing the game.

Another thing bought recently was Kumako dakimakura cover and Taruto tapestry. And for some reason they already arrived.

And lastly, I ended up buying a gamepad. It’s an Xbox controller (the latest one). It worked pretty well for playing Senkou no Clarias. Although it didn’t help me that much clearing the heroines battle on higher difficulty. I’ve spent too much time on it.

Future out

Still nothing planned for near future.

Investments

26.40% this week. That’s a lot of percents. It’s been rather constantly going up this week. Not as much but iDeCo is at 25.06% (13.97%).

I need to save some emergency cash this month so I don’t think I’ll buy anything this month.

Senkou no Clarias

It’s a very late post. A bit over a week late.

I’ve actually started playing this and halfway finishing my first heroine route.

It’s from Tora no Ana so there’s that Camus acrylic figure bonus. As for the tapestry, I don’t think I’ve even opened it yet. Much less taking its photo. Maybe I’ll get around it when I enter her route (when).

The main story is pretty good although the romance is a bit lacking. There’s just some short bits here and there and then suddenly things happen.

Weekly Finance vol. 71

In

Sold quite a few stuff this week. Yay. All the transactions are (almost) done as well so that’s great. Overall I ended up at about 50% loss. It’s pretty bad but I’m mainly using this to dispose older stuff anyway.

Future in

I don’t think I’ll be doing much this week. I should get around putting up the two remaining hard disks sometime…

Out

Bought some books and doujinshis and voice drama. Nothing major there.

I also bought a new phone. That one costed a lot.

Future out

As guessed, one of the new stuff from A.M.R is Kumako dakimakura cover. There’s also a mystery item using illustration of Taruto. Her clothes have same motif as her previous ones but this one is the sexiest yet (apart of the ones for dakimakura of course). Pre-order should be up this Friday so that will be fun.

Nothing else for this month yet. I suppose I should pre-order Argonauts new title sometime later but haven’t gotten willpower to do so yet =P

There’s still nothing for future eroge pre-order. I hope I can use this period to clear up my backlog a bit.

Investments

22.90% this week. It’s still midweek but at least it’s up a bit from last week. The movement have been pretty drastic lately. Thankfully it’s both ways so I still end up with net positive.

iDeCo is slightly harder to track but it’s currently at 23.75% (13.31% yield) which is down a bit from last week.

Combined, I guess stock market in Japan hasn’t recovered as well as the other countries. I’m guessing that based on that I have way more Japanese stocks in iDeCo compared to other accounts.

Weekly Finance vol. 70

In

Lowering the starting bid sure helped and I sold quite a bunch of tapestries last week. Mostly by a single person though. And the loss was pretty bad as well at 70%. I think I could’ve gotten more if I sold them to Suruga-Ya instead.

Future in

Surprisingly I managed to put up more tapestries this week. Some of them are already getting bids so that’s nice.

I still have a few more tapestries I can sell and maybe I’ll do it sooner than later this time.

Out

Bought a bunch of (e)books from Kadokawa sale. There are still a few more books left on my wishlist but I think I’ve bought most of the more expensive ones.

Meanwhile on PC side, I bought a new system for work dev server. Mainly the motherboard and CPU. It’s not really that expensive at 21k for both. I’ll split off my home server memory for it so both will have 16GiB of RAM. Not a lot but should sufficient for now. I’m also changing the storage setup due to the upgrade. It also involves getting more SSD so that’s what I did. The SSD costed me 7k.

Future out

There’s still no news on A.M.R new dakimakura. There’s still two more days for this month and she said it should be this month. It’ll most likely end up using next month budget though as I don’t have any left for this month.

On eroge, I currently only have Argonauts Sister Position titles on my list.

Smee’s Hajilove seemed rather interesting but I don’t quite like the design of half of the heroines.

There’s Cabbage Soft’s Amairo Chocolata 2 but I haven’t even bought the first one.

Unrelated but I kinda want to switch to Rakuten Mobile mainly for their roaming and voice mail service. It’ll require me buying a whole new handset though and recouping the cost will take about two years or so. Other concern is using iPhone on Rakuten Mobile isn’t quite well supported. The biggest concern is the network itself though. They’re still building their main network and I heard info that they’re ending network contract with au this year which means the coverage may get even worse.

Investments

21.35% this week down a bit from last week thanks to a bunch of sell off happening yesterday. It kinda sucks but it also means I should probably buy some more funds. I just hope it doesn’t go back up too much when my transaction is finalized.

iDeCo surprisingly didn’t move much at 24.10% (14.17% yield) probably thanks to it being slightly more diversified.

Kakenuke Seishun Sparking! Hijiri Kikka dakimakura cover

This actually arrived few days ago but I forgot to make post about it. I like her expression on this side. The other side is fine-ish, I think. I like both better than Shiori’s at least.

I just checked the blog I linked for Shiori and sure enough they put up another post for Kikka. Looking pretty good.

I haven’t had Aqua Premium (is it how it’s spelled in English?) but I think this one is fine. It’s a bit shiny but the thickness and feel are pretty good.

Weekly Finance vol. 69

In

Nothing here although it looks like one stuff finally getting bid.

Future in

I adjusted starting bid for stuff as I mentioned last week. As mentioned above one stuff is getting bid but I sure hope this week ends up better than just that.

Maybe I’ll put up more tapestries next week.

Out

Bought some artbooks because Kadokawa is having some kind of sale (or just general price down?). Nothing much else.

Future out

Smee’s new title has been announced and one of the illustrators is K-Ko. That may be interesting…? Or not? It’s for June so still a few months away. I haven’t played the previous title and I’m not sure how that works.

On another K-Ko topic, Chata’s new title will be also illustrated by them. Now all that’s left is hoping that it’s got normal package release or at least non-DRM’d download version.

No information yet on A.M.R new goods. I thought she’ll be in next Ore no Yome and the dakimakura will be sold there first or something. Except it’s not. Maybe just the timing coincides.

Investments

23.18% this week. Up one percent from last week. It went up quite a lot early week but went down towards the end. Still overall up so it’s nice, I guess.

Similarly for iDeCo it’s currently at 24.11% (14.21% yield).

Weekly Finance vol. 68

In

The hard drive transaction went well this time. Thankfully. Also it ended up quite a lot more than I expected. Still only 50% but for an out of warranty hard drive I consider it pretty amazing.

Future in

I think I put up some tapestry and stuff this week. I don’t think I put the proper starting bid. I also still haven’t readjusted the others either. I’ll readjust them this week.

And maybe put up even more stuff. I rearranged my room today and it’s a bit easier to do stuff more than just using my desktop now.

Out

Saga Planets valentine goods! They’ve got R-18 version of Kikka tapestry this time around. I’m so happy about it as they seem to be not selling as much R-18 goods lately (apart of dakimakura) and I ended up buying some more stuff.

I also bought some doujinshi and manga. They’re all paid using the Rakuten points I got recently so that didn’t make much impact to my budget.

Future out

That said, there’s one potentially rather costly item coming up. Namely A.M.R new dakimakura cover (presumably). Or maybe even some other goodies? I kinda expect the announcement to be yesterday but that wasn’t the case, unfortunately.

Otherwise, I don’t think there’s much else?

Investments

I didn’t pay attention at all but apparently my funds went up… barely at 22.26%. That included the new NISA purchase this week so if I exclude it, it’s about 23.28%. One percent up from last week. Nothing impressive but it’s not like I’m doing this short term.

iDeCo side, it’s currently at 23.32% (13.39% yield). Now I look at it, that’s kind of impressive at 3% increase.

Overall everything seems to be going rather well at the moment.

Tamayura mirai – Nekotengu Hanako voice drama CD & B2 Tapestry

I got information a while back that Amazon was selling this for 2000. It seemed good enough and the game has good rating on EGS so I ended up grabbing this. Maybe I’ll get around actually playing this one day.

The print is okay-ish I guess? The material isn’t the best double suede material I’ve ever seen but at least it’s not as bad as that Maitetsu Last Run or post-A&J Moeoh tapestries. It kind of reminds me of Melonbooks double suede tapestries.

Oh and the CD:

I haven’t opened it but from the track listing it seems to be the usual ecchi voice drama with full sex part.

Weekly Finance vol. 67

In

That one thing bid last week ended up cancelled because the winner didn’t pay for the thing. Their rating was pretty questionable when the bid ended (5 positives, 3 negatives) and it got worse after I cancelled the auction (5/5). I put it up again this week and thankfully it’s already bid on. Hopefully it works out this time.

Talking about working out, there’s almost no result for this week apart of the other hard drive I put up recently. It ended up pretty high so I sure hope the drive actually arrives in working condition.

I should look into readjusting starting bids for everything soon.

Future in

I ended up not doing anything apart of that hard drive last week. And probably nothing this/next week either. Lazy yay.

Out

I ended up preordering Senkou no clarias. So that’s 13k off this week.

I also bought (backed?) Oshilove voice drama. The lowest tier for 2500 and 220 fee.

That’s about it for this week.

Future out

Saga Planet seems to be selling something next week so that’s a thing. It would be nice if it’s tapestry of that Kikka. It probably is that.

Nothing else for now.

Investments

Stuff went up quite a lot this week and closed at 22.12% on Friday. The bond index I bought end of last year is still at negative, lol.

iDeCo is also doing pretty well at 20.88% with 12.12% yield.

As for new investments, there will be another big NISA purchase this month. I’ll be back doing usual stuff starting next month. Or maybe the following month to build some safety buffer first.

Senkou no clarias?

I’m not exactly sure why I tried this but it ended up fun. Can only use three units in the trial.

Shelly is currently the most versatile one and Lugh is the most difficult to use.

The battle is fast paced so that’s nice. The problem is the keyboard control is kind of shit. I wonder if I should finally buy a controller. I’m not sure how much better it’ll be but I think it should work better with one. A controller would also be useful for some other games if I ever play some. Annoyingly, the controller I’m considering (Xbox Series Wireless) doesn’t seem to support wireless mode on Windows 8.1 and the compatible adapter is a bit rare.

Story seems fine so far with not much fluff and pretty much straight to business. The MC being voiced is rather interesting. I haven’t seen one since 9-nine. I wonder if he’s voiced in H-scenes as well just like 9-nine lol.

So, um, yeah, I’m getting this. From Tora no ana as originally planned.

Kakenuke seishun sparking! Hiiragi Shiori dakimakura cover

First dakimakura from Kakenuke series. Well, first of only two, that is.

Too bad neither side is her cosplay attire. That would’ve been nice.

I haven’t opened it yet but from this review it looks like the important part is drawn quite a bit more detailed than usual Saga Planets? And more wet as well.

Kinda wish the back side is smiling instead. Also too bad no knee socks.

So, uh, yeah, writing it, my wishlist for her is pretty much her last h-scene. This one isn’t bad per se, it just doesn’t quite tick my fetishes preferences.

The print is at least seems fine. It’s as sharp as it can get from what I can tell.

Weekly Finance vol. 66

In

Sold one thing and there’s another thing that’s already bid.

Future in

Now if only I actually start wiping another unused hard drives…

Also should probably put up more tapestries already or something. Not sure about doujinshi yet.

Out

Bought random Tamayura mirai voice drama for cheap-ish from Amazon. Nothing much else. Yet?

Future out

No update here. Still on the fence about Senkou no clarias.

This month is almost ending and I’m currently at around 15k over my usual target. It could’ve been more had I’m not currently covering for the storage upgrade I did few months ago.

Next month will be the last one and thankfully there shouldn’t be much coming next month. The earliest would be April/May for the upcoming Comiket (which itself isn’t quite clear yet if actually going to happen).

Investments

18.1%. Dropped quite a bit from last week. Probably because of that GameStop fun. It should eventually stabilize again. I think all my funds only deal with bonds and index funds. None of that hedge fund bs. I think.

Similarly for iDeCo, it’s at 18.6% (11.43% yield).

And that was the data from Thursday. I wrote that a while back but never gotten around posting this. Now when I wanted to update it, the system is under maintenance until tomorrow morning. It went up a bit on Friday but not enough to recover the drop… I think.

Weekly Finance vol. 65

In

Well, this week isn’t ending yet but it looks like it’ll be another nothingness.

Future in

At least I did put up some random stuff including the old hard drive I’ve nuked weeks ago.

Out

I noticed I have Rakuten points expiring next month so I used them for some Singleton doujinshis. Nothing much else otherwise.

Future out

Palette decided to discriminate people buying the new 9-nine single chapter. That was funny. So funny I decided against buying the limited edition I mentioned last week and not touch this at all. Maybe if they decide to create R-18 version of it.

Meanwhile it looks like Senkou no clarias will actually be released next month. Hmmm. I’m still not sure about this one.

Title for new Tinkle Sister Position has been announced. It’s Doutei aniki to hankou imouto. The premise seems interesting enough. Hopefully it doesn’t have stupid DRM and is illustrated by someone I like.

Investments

20.2%. Slightly up from last week. The bonds are still doing poorly =[

As for iDeCo, it’s 20.4% (12.52% yield) which is a bit lower.

No new purchases until at least March as I have another NISA big purchase scheduled next month. I should adjust that next year so it’s not as painful the first two months.

Weekly Finance vol. 64

In

Unfortunately still nothing. I probably should start readjusting the starting bids.

Future in

In addition to that readjustment, I’ll be resuming putting up stuff… soon. Or maybe next month. Probably once I’m done with this Magicarat Radiant.

Out

Didn’t do any preorder… yet?

Future out

There’s A.M.R dakimakura restocking but I’ve gotten everything there.

Kakenuke’s Nagiko is also up for preorder. That said, I’ve got the two heroines I care most from the series so it’s not relevant to me anymore.

Still waiting for Fate/Grand Carnival bonus. I wonder when they’ll be up.

On eroge, I said I’ll be skipping Clarias but looking again, may end up actually getting it. Maybe.

I still haven’t preordered Sei no shoujo either. This one is for March so there’s still plenty of time.

Not quite eroge but Onigyu H-anime, Akane and Sumi chapters have been announced. I worried they’ve axed it but thankfully it’s still going. I’m not sure about the stores yet – mainly if I want the tapestry (if exists). At the least I’ll be getting from the cheapest store.

No useful update on 9-nine yet. Just like last week, I’m still not sure if I want to go with just the new chapter or go with limited edition (probably official store). I also learned just now that Animate edition costs 16k even for the standard version. That sure is a lot of dedication just for getting Noa tapestry. I think I’ll wait until it’s colored.

While at it, I may as well re-check everything else. Except there’s no new info for Aokana Extra2, nor Sakura no toki (SCA-Ji said it’ll be released this year but I’ll believe it once it goes gold), nor Fuyukuru.

Oh, nothing on Chata’s new title either. The monthly post should be up next Friday.

I think I’ve covered everything?

There are a bunch of doujinshi that’s kind of on my wishlist. I’ll get around getting them… eventually. The good news is I have some spare budget left for this month despite almost no extra income from auctions. I’ll come back to this around end of this month.

Investments

January is the month I set NISA to buy like 195k worth of index fund. Oh, and February as well for what it’s worth. I actually have barely enough for that this time around so that was kind of dumb and I probably should readjust the schedule the something. Except I’m not doing that because this also kind of force me to save enough this month.

At any rate, this week didn’t go quite well and closed at 19.4%. Could definitely better and my bond index is doing rather bad at the moment at -786 yen. So much for safer investment.

My iDeCo went up a bit to 20.6% (12.29%) though. Apparently I forgot to write the yield last week whoops.

Weekly Finance vol. 63

In

What in =]

Future in

Still nothing =]

Out

Nothing here either. As mentioned before I’m holding back on tapestries and pillow covers purchases. I’ll probably buy some books later once I find enough things to buy.

Unrelated but I did buy some new DDR4 sticks.

Future out

Fuyukuru is coming up, and it’s looking maybe interesting? People say reading previous series isn’t needed but yeah I don’t know yet. Maybe depends on if I’m getting anything else this year.

Talking about this year, there still isn’t anything I especially interested in. There’s Sakura no toki but it’s Makura and even though they said it’s coming this year I kinda doubt it.

Nothing else yet although timing wise Yuzusoft should be announcing something new soon.

Oh, as for Palette’s 9-nine, I’m still waiting for more information on the standalone chapter.

The last one on my company watchlist – which is pretty short now with just Saga Planets, Yuzusoft, and Whirlpool – the next title will probably in August so the announcement would be around March or April?

Writing this I now remembered about Chata as well. Last one was December 18th and next update will be in two or three weeks I think. That said it’ll probably not be a full priced eroge this time.

Not eroge but I’ll probably buy Fate/Grand Carnival. Gudako is too good to skip on. Still waiting for store bonus images though.

There’s also Tsukihime remake. Although considering it’s Switch/PS4 only I’m most likely skipping it.

Investments

20.1% o_O A lot of increase from both Japan and international mutual funds today. 17.8% for iDeCo which is barely an increase from last week.

Weekly Finance vol. 62 (and 2020 summary)

In

Nope.

Future in

Still nope. Maybe next week if I feel like it.

Out

Bought some tapestries and dakimakuras. Mostly related to Ikegami Akane.

Thanks to that I barely have anything left for this month. I did readjust the Furusato tax thingy and it’s still barely enough.

Future out

This tapestry from muku looks very tempting but I think I’ll hold back on it. Similarly this dakimakura from Pan seems nice as well but realistically speaking I’ve got a bit too many covers now. And tapestries.

That’s also why I’m not getting anything from Palette either. The unfortunate side effect is I don’t have calendar for next year.

I’ll probably still buy a few doujinshi. I sure wish more circles go with digital doujinshi. I prefer digital as I store physical books in boxes which is not quite easy to reach as just opening files from my server.

Closing book

I don’t close accounting book which is kinda harmful to the performance of the spreadsheet as it accumulates rows from all the years (currently 35k rows).

I do this mainly because accounting credit card usage crosses month boundary and thus I need to figure out how to deal with it. I suppose opening a new book while keeping the previous one open until everything is finished may work? I’ll then need to retroactively adjust the numbers once the transactions are done.

I suppose this is the main problem with adding entries immediately before it’s billed which is the case for things like preorders and credit cards. I think the account for those are called “Accounts Payable”. I don’t know, it seems complicated just to be able to accurately track monthly spending.

Oh well, anyway, as for the actual numbers themselves, they don’t seem too bad. On average I managed to reach my monthly target. I missed for some month but made up for them on other months.

Extra income from selling unused stuff dropped to 1/3 compared to previous year. I already expected it but it still kinda hurts after all. It feels like I don’t get any benefit from holding back goods purchases during this year.

While at it, let’s see where the money went.

Computer stuff

I started this year with some SSD purchases. I also spent quite a lot for 10 Gbit networking setup around the same period which is January-February.

On February I also bought an iPhone 8 and related items.

On March there’s new server purchase. That costed quite a lot and made worse by another new server purchase. Some components were reused but there are still quite a lot of new stuff needed to be bought. Rough count says around 120k for both servers.

There’s new GPU purchase on October. That one wasn’t too bad at around 14k.

On November there’s NAS HDD upgrade which costed me 180k. That was the most expensive storage upgrade I’ve ever done. I hope I don’t need to do it again for next few years.

I finished my wireless earphone setup purchases on December for total of 10k (the earphones themselves, one generic bluetooth adapter which turned out to be useless, and one dedicated bluetooth audio adapter).

And lastly I bought more SSD for 10k.

Some have cashbacks so the actual numbers are a bit lower than what I specified above.

Eroge, Anime, etc

Apparently I bought 21 eroges this year. Considering I only finished 9 it sure was very optimistic of me.

But anyway, yeah, that’s quite a few eroges. It’s way more than 9 last year and 14 in 2018. Even worse I bought multiple copies of some of them as I stopped buying extras from auction.

As for anime, I think I bought Oregairu kan and Hello World and Tenki no ko. Oh also Onigyu.

48 tapestries purchased, down from 50 last year. And lastly 13 dakimakura covers, down from 19 last year.

Overall I spent most on eroges (420k), then dakimakura covers (120k), then anime blu-rays (80k), tapestries (78k), doujinshi (45k), music CDs (42k), and the rest are less 40k total.

Eroge spending went up quite a lot compared to last year but the rest were down. Mostly, as I mentioned before, because I bought multiple copies of eroge now.

Investments

17.4%. Went up quite a bit from last week which is nice. iDeCo also went up to 18.1% (11.5% yield).

As mentioned two weeks ago, I saved quite a bit over my yearly target for this year.

iroiro Tora no ana B2 Tapestry

I need to iron this, yes

The last stuff I have on my queue for last week. Except it only arrived today because Tora no ana is slow like that.

It’s Choco. Wearing cat ears and tail…plug. I especially like the gloves and thighhighs 👌

The head seems a bit off to me but I’m not sure why. Her expression is fine though.

I think this is also her first R-18 tapestry.

Just like the Melonbooks bonus, this one is thin material and okay print quality. Could be sharper but honestly I’d prefer it to be double suede first.

Koi to senkyo to chocolate High Resolution Edition

The other eroge I bought this month. Also from Getchu. The box is very hollow and only contains a thin manual leaflet and the game disc.

Also the actually game CGs are only 1920×1080 (or x1440) despite the product page saying “supports 4k”. It does show 4k resolution option but then everything is upscaled, which is just like what every other games are. I don’t have original the game anyway and 1080p is good enough upgrade for me but some people did complain about it.

That said, they cropped the CG from 4:3 to fit 16:9. Extending the sides would’ve been better but I guess they’re not going to do that. Given the full price they demanded, they should’ve done that…

Oh and even the 1080p CGs seem rather upscaled. It’s just on par for a sprite milking release, I suppose =/
