Eroge January 2023

Slow progress is slow

Current Progress

Finished Natsuyume Nagisa. It was pretty good. I like the Maki route best… I think? It’s overall one big intertwined thing so there’s really not much point looking at one specific route. That said I didn’t like Ayumu. Something with her just didn’t quite click right with me.

As planned, I’m now at Kisaragi Gold Star. I did manage to finish one route (Ichika) but I’m progressing quite a lot slower than I’d like to.

I’ve done a lot of house cleanups though so there should be fewer distraction for a while. Or at least once I’m done with upcoming system upgrade ๐Ÿ‘€

This Month Release

There will be Doutei Shimai package release. Well, it’s just a package version of already released title so it’s not a new release.

And that’s about it.

Next Month and Beyond

Somehow Sakura no Toki will be released next month. That’ll be a bit annoying because my current queue is already filled up with quite a lot of other things when I also planned to reread Sakuuta before reading Sakutoki. It means I’ll be behind everyone else (as usual) during the initial read rush.

On other news, I’ve preordered Tenshi Souzou. Just from official store for now. The normal edition one. I need some budget adjustments and I don’t know if I’ll end up getting Amane tapestries as initially planned. I may just get them separately from Suruga-Ya or something later if I still feel like it.

Mashifoni release date has been announced. Unfortunately (or fortunately) the shop bonuses look more like something for console release with Melonbooks’ Miu and Sana dakimakura cover being the only exception. I’ll probably just get the cheapest release I can find.

Other Preorders

There’s… nothing. My latest journey of collecting Koutaro stuff took a good chunk of my budget. Also unrelated PC related purchases. One of these days I’ll write some more posts…

Eroge December 2022

Current Progress

Uh, I’m still at Natsuyume Nagisa เฒ _เฒ 

At least it’s on the later part of Ayumi route so I should be able to finish it within next week.

Once done I’ll continue to Kisaragi Gold Star. I definitely won’t make it before the release of Hatsusaku 10th Anniversary ๐Ÿฅฒ

Let’s see how far I can go the remaining of this year. At least I should have plenty of time during the day off on last week this month.

This Month Release

As mentioned above, it’ll be Hatsusaku. And just that. Technically it’s not even this month release as it’s just re-release of same thing from 10 years ago. Hopefully without disc protection like last time.

Next Month and Beyond

January will have Sakura no Toki. Uh, yeah, that’ll totally happen.

Apart of that, there will be the package release of Doutei Shimai. I’m getting two from Sofmap and one from Trader. I think I bought the correct version for each. It wouldn’t be funny if I manage to buy duplicate and miss one.

I also somehow bought the Tsuriotsu box ๐Ÿ‘€ Yay backlogs…

Meanwhile on Yuzusoft, they finally announced their next title. I’ll probably get some from stores with Amane related bonuses and also official store for the bonus drama CD. It’s still on April so I should have enough time to save up for them.

Other Preorders

Makulove’s upcoming Takano Yuki illustrated dakimakura may be interesting. I’m still half regretting for not getting the other one. Although I think the upcoming one is potentially better.

It’s doujin but Shiromochi Sakura’s Mochiken(?) is getting dakimakura cover. Her stuff is usually balloons so it’s nice seeing something on smaller side for once. It’s probably not for Comiket due to the design.

DMM’s CGF 2022 Winter has started. As usual there’s nothing particularly interesting but I bought the Anmitsu domino stuff (the ones with Yae and Kaguya) and Kaguya card wallet. I’ve been considering card wallet for a while now so it’s just about right.

Saga Planets 2022 Winter has also started. I’m only getting Atena & Kaguya tapestry. Obviously the ecchi ver. Bought on DMM because the shipping is slightly cheaper. On related news, too many Riri stuff and not enough Shiori stuff ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Still on Saga Planets, this Midobeyo is doing another Yae only goods. Thankfully the sizing seems correct this time around. The previous one has Yae a bit too small ๐Ÿ˜ข I’ll try getting it from comiket first because it’d be a bit cheaper.

Talking about comiket, I’ll probably go to the event this time around if only just the last day. That’s also if I do manage to get the ticket. I’m not interested in anything particular (well, except the Yae tapestry above) so I’m thinking of just the afternoon ticket.

Although it would be nice if I can get this. It’ll make good addition to my completely SFW stuff collection. Too bad it’s most likely using thin material.

Eroge November 2022

Backlog! Where’s my goods posts… (hint: also backlogged)

Current Progress

I’m still on Natsuyume Nagisa. Finished Haruka and Hitsuji routes. And now I’m currently at Tsukasa route.

The previous two routes were quite something. Especially with either of them having very vague history.

I how the other two will go. And then there’s still the final route.

I’m hoping I can finish this by this week.

This Month Release

Nothing this month! Considered a few things but considering my backlog I figured I should just not.

Next Month and Beyond

Not a new title but Hatsuyuki Sakura anniversary edition will be released next month.

January next year will have Sakura no Toki (ha).

On the goods side, I’ve been getting more B1 tapestries from Melonbooks (Piyodera Mucha Christmas 2021 Revival) and Yometan (Mikeou 1, Mikeou 2, and Nijihashi Sola).

And then also Saga Planets pillow covers and new tapestry. A bunch of them. That said I probably will end up selling some of them. I’ll decide once I finish the game.

Eroge October 2022

Current Progress

Done with Coming x Humming (finally) and thus continuing to Natsuyume Nagisa. This isn’t my first time reading eroge with amnesia MC but not to this extent. The heroines also have their own pretty unique situations. And despite being high school setting, there’s barely any high school thing involved beyond the weird club and questionable student council.

I finished the prologue and currently on Haruka route. While I like Hitsuji design the most I’ll probably do her route second. Followed by Tsukasa and lastly Maki. Sesena Yau design isn’t half bad. In fact, I liked one specific Tsukasa art very long time ago which also put Sesena Yau as one of my very early favorite artists… as far back as 2009.

Only took me 13 years to finally read this ๐Ÿ‘€

This Month Release

Surprise, I’m getting the ASaProject 15th Anniversary Box ๐Ÿ˜Ž Also Drapri Guu-ta-life Complete Pack.

RIP backlogs…

Next Month and Beyond

Sakutoki next month! Delayed! Well, it’s pretty much as expected.

And thus there’s nothing for me on November unless I change my mind and get Zwei Trigger. And/or Hamidashi.

There’s Hatsusaku on December. Well, it’s just the same old version and I already have a copy of it. I don’t think there’s anything else on December.

Nor January apart of Sakutoki (ha). Or maybe Tsuriotsu?

Oh right, there’s that Mashifoni thing except nothing concrete has been announced so far. There’s no news from Yuzusoft either…

Eroge September 2022

Uh huh ๐Ÿ‘€

I forgot about this monthly thing.

Current Progress

Still on Coming Humming. Wait, that’s almost two months now. I should speed up my reading. Or at least actually read things.

This Month Release

Oh hey today is release day. And I have nothing here.

Next Month and Beyond

Sakutoki in November is still the closest one. I also still haven’t preordered it.

Kind of tempted with Iroseka HD and ASaProject Anniversary Box. But considering I’ll probably never get around to that I’ll pass on for now and maybe check again once I clear up my back logs.

Just announced yesterday, the detail on Hatsusaku Anniversary Box has been announced. Unfortunately there’s no remaster or anything. If I count the old stuff as costing 8k, it’s 10k for tapestry (not specified but better be double suede here), acrylic panel (missing size detail; I expect at least A4 or B5), and voice drama. The voice drama was unexpected but welcome. Everyone is doing ASMR nowadays it seems. That said, it’s still rather expensive overall. I’ll probably still grab it anyway. I nuked all my Saga Planets budget but it should recover on time for its December release.

Lastly, according to Russel’s homepage, there will be soundtrack box or pieces and Unless Terminalia. And then there’s an accompanying tapestry. I don’t know if I’ll get the tapestry but I may get at least the soundtrack. This one is coming up November.

It’s been a lot of blank months and I would’ve done pretty good in term of budgeting and saving had I not finally decide to replace my rather gross 9 years old futons (three layers of them) with a fancy bed. Not fancy in term of appearance but in that it opens up like car trunk/frunk for more storage \o/ I’m expecting a lot from it to free up my room space.

Eroge August 2022

Horniest heroine in the game

Progress So Far

Finished Ambitious Mission. At a bit over a month it’s still too slow. That said, I’m three weeks in to Coming x Humming and I haven’t even finished a single route lol.

Back to Anmitsu, it was pretty fun. Thankfully I picked what I would consider the ideal route orders. Lots of random references were fun especially the Conan and Kindaichi ones. I should’ve kept count on how many variations of ใ˜ใฃใกใ‚ƒใ‚“ใฎๅใซใ‹ใ‘ใฆ there are. The ability of Sharu is pretty ridiculous as well. Anyone looking for serious story will probably be disappointed but I think this worked pretty well as a gag title. The serious part is relatively well handled as well but I think the whole key thing is a bit too weird. Same with the universe thing. Not to mention they hinted on some story on the other part but it was just left at that. On the brighter side it opens path for fandisk or alternative story or whatever. I’m not holding my breath but more Anmitsu is welcome. Especially more Yae and Kaguya. Also Tsubame and Horoko.

As mentioned above, I’m currently reading Coming x Humming. It was chosen for no particular reason apart of it was chosen at random (like, order by random() on my eroge list table). This will be a very long journey at four whole titles. Once I’m done with this, I’ll have read all modern Saga Planets title. I don’t know if I can handle their earlier titles. I can even barely deal with Coming x Humming artstyle and the earlier ones are even less of my preferences.

This Month Release

Nothing! Yay.

Next Month and Beyond

The closest one is still Sakutoki in November.

And then Palette finally updated the Mashifoni FHD and Sana Edition. Thankfully both are proper eroge so yay. Planned for 2023 so those are still quite far away.

On the other hand, there’s still no news from Yuzusoft…

Eroge June 2022

Progress So Far

…I’m still at Aokana. Whoops. I’ll get to Ambitious Mission once done and then back to Aokana Extras.

I was hoping to clear Anmitsu before end of this month but that probably won’t happen. It’s mainly so I can better answer the survey things they’re having.

I should also get around posting the new stuff from last month. Probably around end of this month.

This Month Release

Nothing for this month. There’s the new title from Lump of Sugar but I don’t think I need to rush getting their stuff anytime soon.

Next Month and Beyond

Sister Position first release is planned for next month. Unfortunately there’s no information whether or not it’ll involve PlayDRM or other kind of DRM. I hope there’s none because otherwise I may not be getting it. Which would be mildly annoying as I bought the just-released voice drama of it. Maitetsu didn’t have any but the previous two did so there’s no clear pattern here.

On other news, Saga Planets is having poll for Anmitsu dakimakura cover. Uniform and costume would be nice so I hope those two get chosen for both Kaguya and Yae.

Still on Saga Planets, Anmitsu Complete Soundtrack has been announced as well. Release date will be end of August and the cover (and probably tapestry) will be of Kaguya and someone else yet to be announced (considering the previous ones). Yae would be nice although in the end it’ll depend on the image regardless on which version I’ll be getting.

Eroge May 2022

Progress So Far

Done with Clarias F. It turned out the skip history is still there, it just didn’t work on new/modified sections as expected. The extra story ended up being quite a thing. Especially the last hidden route.

There’s still the extra thing to be cleared but I don’t think it involves any kind of story. It’s also pretty difficult.

It just hit me but Asuka’s mom is kind of ใƒคใƒใ„

With that done I was hoping to finish Aokana Perfect Edition and Aokana Extra 1 before the Extra 2 release next week but I have my doubt on me finishing it on time. I just hope I can at least clear Aokana before Friday and do the rest next month or something. Ambitious Mission will probably take priority.

This Month Release

Aokana Extra 2 as mentioned above. No interesting store bonus so I’m getting mine from Amazon.

Similarly for Hokecho. She’s just too big. On related note, it’s only two months apart from Hokeloli whereas Hokejo was released November 2020 which is over one year apart.

And lastly of course Ambitious Mission. I’m getting it from a few stores for all the Kaguya and Yae. I just hope the story won’t be too boring. I don’t expect it to exceed Kinkoi but it will be a nice surprise if it does.

Next Month and Beyond

There’s… nothing. Well, almost, there’s Sakutoki but it’s not only still half a year apart (and that’s before including potential delays), the bonus illustrations aren’t up yet either so there’s no way to decide which store to buy it from.

I don’t think there’s anything else interesting to me coming up. Maybe the Cabbage Soft’s Jewelry Hearts Academia but I should finish Sakuretto first and then Amazing Grace before even considering the upcoming title.

Eroge April 2022

Progress So Far

Finished Shugaten! That was quite something. Mainly the Koori route. And the epilogue. I sure wish I realized the final reveal way earlier because it was so stupid ๐Ÿ˜‘

Afterwards, I went on to Hokejo as mentioned last month. I finished it in a bit less than two weeks and then Hokeloli in around two weeks.

Hokejo/Hokeloli when not in story mode. Too bad next one won’t have this anymore

Hokejo had some surprises in term of how the route is structured. I also quite liked the latter part.

Hokeloli continued with similar formula but there’s fewer surprising reveal towards the end due to having seen how Hokejo worked and there were just way more hints spread out in the earlier parts. Still pretty good overall I think.

Hokecho is coming out next month. It’ll probably be the shortest of the three.

With that done, I decided to finally check Senkou no Clarias F. Unfortunately the read history is missing so skip function doesn’t work but I think I’ll just go over them all again quickly or something. I did finish reading the extra H scenes first. Those were pretty short with no extra story. Still a nice extra though ๐Ÿ‘Œ

This Month Release

So I ended up getting DC4SH. I bought the DC4PH as well for rather cheap. Bought the SH from Melonbooks. The tapestry was the main reason I got it in the end.

On the other hand, RIP Futakoi. Maybe once I cleared my backlog more.

Next Month and Beyond

Aokana Extra 2 and Ambitious Mission next month. Both are still waiting for RTM so there’s still possibility either of them being delayed. That said, Aokana Extra 2 dev team said they’re aiming for it sometime next week and Saga Planets don’t usually delay their releases. We’ll see.

Oh, right, there’s also Hokecho next month. I guess I should place preorder sometime soon. I don’t know where to buy them from yet though. Amazon is the usual place when I’m not getting any bonuses but they don’t have any discount for it… yet? I’ll wait one or two weeks, otherwise I may just get it from nearby Sofmap.

Now I think about it, I should check Aokana as well. And its soundtrack (also Hokejo’s).

After May, there isn’t much yet. Sakura no Toki is supposed to be out in November but it’s still so far away. Not to mention it’ll probably be delayed even further.

There’s also Jewelry Hearts Academia thing from Cabbage Soft. I don’t know about that one yet. Maybe if I manage to finish Sakuretto first. And Amazing Grace.

Eroge March 2022

What

Since I’m ending the Weekly Finance thing, I figured this should do in its place. And maybe with more individual posts instead of collecting them up weekly.

Progress So Far

Too bad she doesn’t get route =[

This month will see Hokeloli release but I still haven’t even started on Hokejo.

I’m still stuck at Shugaten since mid January although I think it should end soon. FGO box event and challenge quest slowed things down. So did playing YGO Master Duel. Hopefully I can end it quickly and continue to Hokejo as initially planned. I took days off for this although progress has been slow so far (as usual).

This Month Release

And mentioned in earlier posts I preordered Hokeloli and Unless Terminalia. There’s also Aokana Extra 2 but it got delayed to May.

Hokeloli as mentioned above I plan to finish reading Hokejo before release day and then continue with Hokeloli on release day.

As for Unless Terminalia, I’m still backlogged on Pieces (original and its sequel) so I don’t know when I’ll get around reading it.

Next Month and Beyond

There’s nothing on April although I’m still on and off on DC4 and Futakoi. If anything I’ll get them later once I clear up my backlog which kind of sounds like never.

And then on May there will be Aokana Extra 2 and Ambitious Mission. Preorders are placed and all that’s left is waiting and picking them up and stuff.
