On the bright side, it’s scheduled for July release so I still have plenty of times to figure out if I want anything. Or if I should just bail out (probably not).

A quick check on what I possibly may want:

  • Sofmap full set (22k)
  • Getchu full set (46k)
  • Gamers full set (30k)
  • Trader tapestries set (14k)
  • Suruga-Ya tapestry (5k)

My calculator says they sum up to 117k. Ayyy 💸

Eroge – Aikano

Uh, yeah, adding more stuff to my backlog is exactly what I need. Found this for cheap-ish in Amazon and I kinda like the illustrator so I figured I should maybe try this.

It’s the limited edition which includes dakimakura cover. At barely over 4k it’s not too bad, I guess?

For some reason Suruga-Ya is selling it for way more despite being second-hand item. The one I got from Amazon is new. It’s gotten a bit more expensive now though at almost 6k.

Tinkle Position on indefinite break

As per their announcement page, they’re taking break from making new titles.

It’s pretty interesting timing as was just thinking on what they will do next considering they’ve released four-imouto at-home nukige three times (counting Onikin), two of which got fandisc. I guess it’ll get rather stale if they’re just going to repeat the same formula.

As per the director’s message, they’re considering going into a new direction and thus taking a distance from the current Tinkle Position as it’s currently pretty much tied to being specialized at the specific genre.

OR SOMETHING. I don’t know. It’s kind of sad but I think they did pretty good job and even got English localization.

お疲れ様でした。Thank you and may we meet again somewhere someday ( ・_・)ゞ

Hajikano

It’s a thing. By Caramel Box. Not sure how they’ve stayed alive.

It’s illustrated by Tsukimori Hiro who formerly worked for Purple Software. Not my top favorite illustrator but surely on the higher tier.

Interesting how the eyes of the heroines seem like they’re in ♡ mode all time.

Also interesting the heroines are high schooler, university student, and co-worker.

The main problem is they’re all big breasted 😔

On my “maybe” list. Probably will go with Sofmap if I decide to buy this at all…

Bye Hulotte ;_;)ゞ (and Cube)

As feared, latest Hulotte title involves online verification again (and Cube as well). As promised, I’m not touching this one (and the other one).

DRM on completely offline single player game with no content update is just dumb and wrong. Thankfully the last one was pretty easy to work around for the soft denchi edition if one pay attention to the game directory but who knows about this one.

The previous one was also an exception hoping the next one would not include it anymore but unfortunately they’re continuing with it. Oh well.

(I’ll be back if they change their mind on the online thing but I doubt it)

As this might very well my last post about Hulotte (and Cube?), I guess I should end it with a bang ヽ( ゚ ヮ゚)ノ

Here’s all Hulotte tapestries and pillow covers I currently own. There are some more stuff coming this weekend but I guess those won’t make appearance in this blog. 51 (+1) tapestries, 16 (+1) pillow covers.

Company-wise this actually takes up most of my collection at the moment. It’s unfortunate that the collection won’t grow anymore from now on 🙃

Tapestries

Pillow covers

B5 shitajiki – Moteyaba Sofmap bonus

And here’s something random.

B5-sized shitajiki (pencil board?) from Sofmap bonus for Imouto no okage de motesugite yabai.

Meguri sure is cute. Also lewd. Sure wish there are more tapestries of her.

I bought this from Mandarake for a bit less than 500 yen which is cheap. Except the shipping is almost 700. I should’ve checked whether the store actually do cheap shipping or not. Oh well.

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 :D

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 :(

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. 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, 幼刀!

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. 105: Abroad edition

Preface

On time once in a while. Mainly because I don’t have much else to do. And it just happens I’m testing a Realforce 87U which for some reason someone left here.

Eroge playthrough

Didn’t play at all this last few days! And won’t be for another two weeks! ;_;

I think I got about halfway through Yoshino route before going. Right before the (apparently) most interesting part. No, not an H scene.

At current rate I’ll probably finish it in two or three weeks once I resume.

Probably will play either Kamiyaba or Mamiya.

Not-eroge stuff

Finished imouto zetsumetsu 2! Looks like it’ll end in another one or two more volumes if following current pattern?

As it’s the latest released, I switched to something else. Another long titled light novel, Yuusha to Maou ga Dengeki Doumei (…etc). Looks quite fun so far.

I should have quite a lot of time to read while I’m away. Hopefully I can at least finish all I currently own.

Still okay-ish with anime as well (except haven’t watched this week’s).

Wasting money

I think I’ve finished the whole K-Books tapestries from Chikotam. Except the clear poster. Clear poster is just dumb. I doubt I’ll get more of it especially if it costs a lot. Maybe if someone put it up for like 1000…

There isn’t much else apart of next month’s bonus stuff which are quite a lot. At least still less than I originally allocated.

Continue reading

Digest Vol. 102: Forgotten Stuff

Preface

Early for once.

Eroge playthrough

Started Senren Banka. Dying from dialogues with Mako. The production quality sure is high (this is my first Yuzusoft game). Lots of expressions makes it really fun to read. The face just keep changing!

Progressing slowly, currently at chapter 3-2.

Unless there’s forced route, the plan is as usual: Rena → Yoshino → Murasame → Mako.

Not-eroge stuff

Finished Gakeppuchi 2. Holy shit the ending. I don’t even. Vol. 3 fucking when. Went for Mamizu, stayed for Mamizu and the story.

Continuing to Imouto Zetsumetsu vol. 2. Sure is much easier to read.

Still keeping up with anime as well.

Wasting money

Now I look again, I spent almost 200k and sold about 120k. So in the end I more or less spent 80k for eroge (and other ACHGM) goods.

And then I count in PC stuff.

And then flight ticket.

And then my balance turns complete red this month.

Nooooo D:

So, yeah, although I managed to more or less balance off eroge goods, purchases of other stuff ticked off the balance to negative.

I bought too many pillow covers this month ._.

Next week is also the last week I’m selling stuff (until I return).
