Weekly Finance vol. 98

In

Also nothing. That sucked.

Future In

And so I lowered starting bid of everything. Three items are bid already so that’s nice because I need all the extra money I can get.

Out

So I can fund Clarias F again after wasting spending the budget (which I forgot to actually budget) on FGO.

Summer Event has started and Takeuchi servant this time is Okita Alter. In semi-Lily fashion (and a normal version). Complete with Rengoku personified.

I sure wish the original Okita got same amount of highlight during her release event ;_;

Anyway, that’s all spending I did this past week.

Future Out

As for future spending, as mentioned above it’ll be Clarias F. Considering the spending I done above, I don’t think I’ll be getting Sousaku Kanojo. It’s not like I’m lacking in backlog anyway.

Talking about backlog, I just remembered I’m supposed to get Tamayura Mirai. It just never happened but I guess I should budget it somewhere sometime. I added it to my “unpurchased backlog” for now which existence I forgotten since forever.

Apart of that, I don/t think there’s anything interesting coming up for me. Oh yeah I dropped tapestries for the same reason.

Investments

36.52% this (last?) week which is one percent down compared to previous week. It was mostly small increase over the week but it dropped quite a lot on Friday. That sucked.

As for iDeCo… it’s maintenance time again ,_, 34.83% (16.20% yield)… very slightly up. Cool, I guess.

Weekly Finance vol. 95

In

Still nothing this week.

Future In

Sorted my room a bit. Precisely the tapestry boxes. I’ve pulled out a few I may want to sell and managed to reduce number of boxes to three. The boxes are pretty full at the moment so I think I’ll need to sell a bit more.

That said, I’ve only put them aside and haven’t done anything with them. Probably sometime this week.

As for doujinshi, I haven’t touched them at all. I’ve been rather occupied with other stuff and sorting them takes too much time I don’t really want to set aside just yet.

Out

I spent a bit too much on FGO gacha. I ended up rearranging existing budget for eroge and stuff and managed to not overbudget this month. That said, I’ll probably need to set aside some more for next month because summer event.

Future Out

Ainolinks Seisaku Kanojo HCG has been published recently and they seem nice enough I may end up getting it? Not quite sure yet though.

On another eroge news, Giga announced Clarias fandisk, Clarias F. New Chris route is welcome and so are the other extras. But the package version cost so much more compared to the digital one with the bonus being rather questionable in value. The tapestries better be double suede at least. Pre-order isn’t up yet so I can’t confirm that part. I’ll probably still end up getting the package version anyway…

And then even more eroge news, Purple Software announced their new title, Kunako Kokuki. …dunno if I’ll get it. I’m not particularly interested in historical Japanese setting.

On related note, Saga Planets should be announcing their new title soon as well…

Investments

35.82% this week. That’s a lot of drop compared to previous week. It went constantly down for the whole week. I hope it gets better next week…

iDeCo is the same being down to 31.15% (15.32%).

It’s probably a good time for me to buy some funds.

Actually, I’ll just do that now.

…and done.

That said, I’m still off from my target for this year by a lot. As long there isn’t sudden big purchase, I should be able to hit it by the end of the year. Hopefully.

Weekly Finance vol. 94

In

Nothing this week. I kind of expected it.

Future In

Not sure if I’ll do anything this week. Maybe Suruga-Ya stuff if I feel like to.

Out

Kakenuke goods were rather unexpected. Bought Shiori tapestries (both versions) and some clear bottles. I can use the bottles when going out instead of just reusing disposable pet bottles which isn’t quite recommended. At least budget-wise, I took it from the existing Saga Planets budget wallet.

I also pre-ordered the Muririn B1 tapestry I mentioned last week. It sure is expensive. I probably should just take the budget from Yuzu-Soft budget. I’ll adjust accordingly by the end of this month as needed.

I also bought a bunch of doujinshi, both digital and physical. The A.M.R doujinshi was surprising. Interestingly there’s no announcement from her twitter account…

Future Out

This tapestry is rather interesting… I’ll decide on this sometime later.

Saga Planets new title announcement may come anytime soon now.

Sakura no Toki on the other hand, the official site is finally updated with a release date… for trial version.

I think that’s it for the upcoming stuff?

Investments

38.82% last week. Another one percent increase. Nice.

As for iDeCo, it’s currently at 33.09% (16.19% yield) which is up for both compared to last week (finally).

Weekly Finance vol. 93

In

Finally got rid of the old monitor. Hopefully it arrives at destination in one piece. Also sold two other things for some 50% loss.

Future In

I guess I should move on to sorting out stuff for Suruga-Ya now. Or soon. Or later.

There are still a few more tapestries and covers I may want to sell as well.

Out

Bought digital version of some older doujinshi… and not much else.

Future Out

Nothing particularly interesting on summer doujin thingy so far.

As for FGO, there’s nothing interesting.

Pre-order (?) for Moeoh tapestries should be up tomorrow but I’m not sure if I’m going forward with getting Muririn tapestry.

Investments

37.64%! That’s some increase. It also broke some nice number for me. And it’d look even better if I throw in some more sometime this month (imagine 2.7M, and throwing 300k would make it nice 3M).

As for iDeCo, it barely went up at 32.32% with the yield actually went down to 15.51%.

Weekly Finance vol. 92

In

Sold three things! The loss isn’t too bad either at around 20%. Could be worse.

Future In

I put up more tapestries last week. Some of them are sold already which is nice.

I still haven’t put up the monitor though. Hopefully this week.

Out

Accompanying the writing of Melonbooks ripping tool I did last week, I ended up buying quite a few doujinshi and eromanga last week. The nice thing about Melonbooks web reader is it seems like they provide the best quality they have. And without the stupid black border to fit the image in multiply of JPEG blocks.

There was also this Yuzusoft ASMR brand new title.

Future Out

Even after all those crap, thankfully my saving target for last month was safely achieved.

It looks like Yuzusoft won’t be releasing eroge anytime soon. That was a disappointment.

Up next would be Sagaplanets. Announcement sometime this month maybe?

There’s also Whirlpool but I have no idea when they’ll do another full price title. I don’t think I’ll get their upcoming Shiromochi one. I’ll just get them sometime later once I clear my backlogs. Or if they release a bundle pack containing that and all the following fandisks and sequels (like Nekonin).

FGO goods full lineup will be announced soon. My main hope is a new servant tapestry series, specifically Saber Alter (Shinjuku ver.).

It’s also August which means usually summer event. The closest thing I may be interested in getting is Muririn tapestry from Dengeki Moeoh. There’s nothing interesting from doujin side yet.

Investments

36.51% closing last week. It felt like it was a lot of downs during the week but apparently it ended up going up quite a bit over previous week? It guess the jump on Monday covered the downward trend over the week.

Similarly for iDeCo at 32.11% (16.15% yield).

It’s August already and I’ve barely done any additional purchases.

Weekly Finance vol. 91

Still need 3 more grails

In

I put up four more stuff for auction and sold two of them. Both at loss at around 40%. I probably should’ve set at least one of them a bit higher.

Future In

I still haven’t gotten around preparing to get rid of the monitor. I don’t know about next week. Maybe the following week. FGO 6th Anniversary is coming up.

…similarly for other things.

Out

I bought a bunch of doujins that’s on discount on DLsite.

I also ended up pre-ordering Date A Live Tobiichi Origami Tapestry πŸ‘€ I feel like it’s been ages since I last bought an anime tapestry. Unless I count FGO in πŸ€” Even then they haven’t done their Premium Tapestry series for quite a while either.

Future Out

July is ending soon and I still have quite a bit left in my random spending budget. That said, next month is August which means some kind of Comiket stuff. I probably should save some more and prepare for it.

That said I haven’t bought much from recent doujin events. Mainly because of space consideration. It sure would be nice if more circles also do digital release. Preferably not on Melonbooks because of their DRM Nevermind I ended up writing a downloader for Melonbooks browser viewer. It ended up better than DMM because there’s no stupid black border and the size seem to match full download size. Whee.

Investments

Latter half of last week was holiday so the number is probably off but it’s 34.22% which is down by over 1% compared to previous week. It’ll be rather interesting seeing how it goes by the end of Monday.

Even worse for iDeCo at 28.56% (14.51% yield) which is 3% down.

Oh well.

I also should throw more money… maybe next month.

Weekly Finance vol. 90

In

Finally got rid of the old wifi router and unused blanket. Both for quite a bit of loss as usual but they’re pretty low value to begin with.

Future in

I only have 6 items up for auction now.

I’ve made box for the large monitor so all that’s left is checking the final condition of the monitor, maybe recondition a bit, take photos and stuff, and finally put it up for auction.

Apart of that, I also need to finally do something about the dakimakura covers I separated out for sale a while back. The photos are taken, I just need to actually put them up.

As for doujinshi, maybe for yet another time. Probably after selling the monitor.

Out

Didn’t spend anything last week.

Future out

As mentioned last week, I’ll be buying Natsukuru and Akikuru… soon? One of them should be available at Sofmap nearby so maybe today if I can actually wake up on time.

On other news, Shiromochi Sakura is drawing for Whirlpool next title. That seems interesting although there’s no indication whether it’ll be a full price title or not.

Investments

35.51% last week. I noticed a bunch of up and down though thankfully it ended up a profit overall.

Also interesting my iDeCo went down at 31.69% (15.97% yield) which is the opposite from last week.

Weekly Finance vol. 89

In

Sold some PC stuff. It was at quite a lot of loss but more than I actually expected. I just hope it’ll go well.

My room got some extra space now. Yay.

Also one last copy of eroge (also at loss).

Future in

I probably should start selling more tapestries. And other stuff.

If the monitor I just sold arrived without problem, I’ll start looking into selling the larger one. Still not sure how to actually pack it though as I have no box with correct size.

Out

Sale of latest Eshi100 books have finally started. Good thing I accounted for the shipping cost already.

As I finally finished reading Amakoi, up next is Harukuru… which I needed to buy first. Hopefully this one won’t take forever to read.

Future out

I’ll eventually need to also buy Natsukuru and Akikuru…

Melty Blood bonus seems to be mostly up but nothing interesting so far.

I don’t think there will be anything for the rest of this month…?

Investments

34.60%… o_O That’s a lot of drop.

Interestingly for iDeCo it went up a bit closing at 32.90% (16.14%).

I need to get around buying some more index funds…

Weekly Finance vol. 88

In

Put up two dakimakura covers and one of them was sold for quite a bit more than the original purchase price. That’s a nice change.

That’s it for this week. Oh and last week’s was completed without problem.

Future in

Maybe will put up a bit more covers along the week.

I’ve also emptied a box for shipping one of the monitors. I still need to do a final check on it and then actually make auction page…

As for doujinshi for Suruga-Ya, hopefully will be done before end of this month.

Out

Pre-ordered Romi cover. The shipping is kinda expensive.

Kinda interested in this Imosucc but I figured better not to as I’ve already gotten fuckload of backlogs.

Future out

It’s July and there’s still no announcement from Yuzusoft.

I don’t think there’s anything else interesting coming up anytime soon. Although I still need to finally get around buying and reading Harukuru etc.

My budget for this month is kinda dried up already. Preparing for unknown stuff costs money.

On semi unrelated note, I did manage to reach my saving target for last month. Hopefully it goes well this month as well.

Investments

37.15% this week. That’s a lot of percents in span of a week. I just hope it doesn’t drop right on the start of the week. Or at all.

iDeCo 32.58% (16.00% yield). Unlike normal account, it’s less than 1% from last week and the yield is actually lower.

Weekly Finance vol. 86

What am I doing, even

In

Sold one thing! Yay. That was at 60% loss. It’s actually slightly less loss than I expected.

Still no bid for my old PC ;-; I lowered the starting bid so hopefully someone will finally buy it. It’s taking some space in my room.

Future in

Talking about taking space, I still haven’t done anything with the two unused monitors. I had some idea on the box for the smaller one but the box itself is being used for something else so I’ll need to figure out where to move them to.

Now I think about it I probably can put them in the empty container box I have. Hopefully I’ll be motivated enough to finally do it next week.

No plan for the Suruga-Ya thing at the moment. I also haven’t started putting up the dakimakura covers I sorted out for auction.

Out

As can be seen above, I ended up spending some more for Morgan. 10k more to be exact. Thankfully it’s not more than that.

I finally bought the Maitetsu thing. And yeah, the Monobeno one requires PlayDRM thing to play but Maitetsu (Last Run) itself doesn’t. There are a lot of things to be downloaded and I think I’ve downloaded the important ones. I still need to sort the files out though.

With that I got 90% discount on Whisp items. I have some on my wishlist so I’ll put that to good use.

I also ended up backing this Oshilove FD Ending Single Project. Not too expensive but still something. I haven’t gotten around pre-ordering the game itself though.

Future out

There’s one unexpected potential pre-order coming from Aikome extra route. I didn’t expect for it to be also sold by itself. Well, the new route is (supposed to be) free but there are a few extra goodies they’ll be selling as companion to that. I just hope there’s no store bonus involved this time. No dakimakura cover at least judging from the price.

Interestingly it’s also slated for September.

Still no news on Yuzusoft.

My budget for this month is looking rather okay so far. I had to readjust the target because the tax increase is a bit higher than I expected. The end result is I still have quite a lot of extra budget remaining. Unless something unexpected come up, I should be able to close this month in pretty good state.

Investments

34.17% last week. It went up most of the week. Except then it closed at some rather big negative number on Friday. Welp. At least it’s not down to below previous week.

As for iDeCo, it’s currently under maintenance… I’ll need to remember to update this section later today.

…and I forgot to actually do it. Whoops.

Weekly Finance vol. 85

That was a lot of money for what essentially some database entries and jpegs

I actually almost forgot to write this. I remembered about it during the whole weekend but kept putting it off.

In

Nothing here. At least the ones from previous week completed without problem.

Future in

I need to finally get around selling the two unused monitors. They’re rather uselessly just filling up my precious room space at the moment. Packing those will be quite a bother though.

Still no progress on doujinshi and tapestries and dakimakura covers.

Out

I spent 20k to get Morgan. I rolled for about 176 times until I completely ran out of free SQ from unfinished quests, interludes, bonds, etc. It was pretty annoying and I ended up wondering how much do I need to roll this time to actually get her. My last notable failure was Skadi with 242 rolls. I ended up allocating 40k and thankfully only had to use half of it. Still a very bad idea. I hope I don’t do this again at least for this year.

Nothing else major otherwise. I still haven’t bought the Maitetsu/Lose packs either.

Future out

None of things I mentioned last week have any updates.

Or almost. There’s news on Tsukihime at least. It’s not really all that enticing though. The one I like the most is Sofmap but I think I’ll pass this time.

Investments

34.66% this week. That’s barely an up compared to last week. The whole week was just very slight changes on both directions. Still better than going down, I guess.

31.21% (15.79% yield) for iDeCo. Similarly tiny increase. But hey, still, up is better than down.

Looking at the numbers I have for this month I think I can start buying more funds around end of this month.

Or maybe I should just start now… if only the system is not currently under maintenance. That was a weird timing. Oh well.

Weekly Finance vol. 84

In

Managed to sell some old PC parts which I should’ve done weeks ago. Sold for quite a bit as well. Not enough to cover the whole price back – only about 30-50% – but those are all over 4 years old. An ssd, an hdd, and a graphics card.

Future in

Finally preparing to sell the unused PC. And maybe finally some dakimakura covers and tapestries.

Not sure about doujinshi for Suruga-Ya yet…

Out

Nothing here.

Future out

Still haven’t bought the Maitetsu pack thingy I mentioned last week. Probably next week.

Eshi 100 online order should be up soon as well.

No news from Yuzusoft yet. If it follows their release pattern so far they should target for September release. Or maybe October. With initial announcement sometime this month.

Meanwhile there’s still no news on Sakura no Toki. Nor the store bonus for Tsukihime.

There are still a few doujinshi I’m planning to buy but I’ll wait until a bit later. Sometime around end of this month, most likely.

Investments

34.11% closing last week. Up a bit over previous week. I think it went up and down over the course of the week.

30.77% (15.61% yield) for iDeCo which is over 1% up over previous week but lower yield.

I need to get around buying more funds as well. I haven’t even reached 10% of my yearly investment target even though first half of the year is almost over…

Weekly Finance vol. 83

In

Sold one thing for very cheap which is just about right because it’s just an old tiny adapter thing.

Future in

Still haven’t bothered to put up anything…

I’ll look into it this (hopefully) weekend.

Out

Nothing here either although I did buy some SSD to replace the broken one and new keyboard keycaps as the current one is looking kinda terrible with scraped surface and all.

Also I found a retro-looking set so that’s nice. And another one for office, a “robot” (Gundam) colored one (blue, red, and gray).

Future out

Oshilove FD store bonus info is out. I’ll probably just go with Amazon for that settings book thing.

On non-pre-order news, Maitetsu won 2020 Moegame Award and they’re having a big sale for their download edition titles. Gothdeli and Monobeno are DRM-infested but Maitetsu itself seems fine. I’ll probably grab some of them to complete my voice drama collection although apparently it still doesn’t include Last Run store bonus voice drama.

I’ll also be checking Melonbooks later today to see if there’s anything I want from latest Comic1 last week though I probably won’t get anything. I’ve got enough space problem as it is now.

This month is ending in few days and my savings state is… not really good. It’s not really much different compared to last week but I decided to remove the stupid spreading of cost way far to the future. They were previously filed under “budget” and pre-allocated for next few months but that’s just wrong. Budget shouldn’t function like installment payment.

I’ve removed them and correctly adjust savings target for the remaining of this year instead. I’ve also allocated actual “budget” for next month hopefully they’ll stick this time although looking at the remaining budget it’ll probably need some adjustments.

Investments

33.77% this week. Another upward week. I think there’s one or two days of slight dip but overall it’s a pretty good gain for this week.

As for iDeCo, it’s 29.45% (15.71% yield).

The main account is now completely recovered from the drop last few weeks. iDeCo still needs a bit more time to regain all the losses though.

I sure can use properly input data of this weekly fluctuations. That could be interesting even though isn’t really meaningful.

Weekly Finance vol. 82

In

Apparently the thing I sold last week arrived in one piece and everything ended up without problem.

Future in

It doesn’t seem to be there will be anything for this week so there’s that. I finished wiping my drive and maybe will finally sell it later next week.

Afterwards I still have one desktop PC and two monitors to be sold.

And tapestries. And doujinshis. One day I’ll have a clean room. One day.

Out

Finally preordered Onigyu anime and FGC. I budgeted the first one except it wasn’t actually enough with shipping cost. Whoops. Oh well.

Even worse is the FGC wasn’t budgeted at all. That’s another 10k off for this month.

Those alone would’ve been fine if not for me updating my kitchen situation. My existing rice cooker proved to be too annoying (especially to clean after use due to it leaking muddy water like stupid) so I ended up getting a new one. And then following by buying some cookware because they’re like over 7 years old and probably slowly giving me cancer. Or maybe not but they look kinda disgusting anyway.

And that’s how I ended up with 10k below my target for this month. I’m still a few thousands above my hard limit for this month so hopefully I can get by this month without crossing that.

Future out

Oshilove fandisk has been announced to be released in July.

I think that’s all upcoming stuff that I haven’t budgeted yet… excluding the upcoming Comic1 tomorrow.

I didn’t pay attention to it and only learned it’s an actual offline event (nearby Big Sight) very recently. Not that I’m going to go there because that seems rather dangerous but I may end up buying some doujins from nearby Melonbooks?

On the unknown side, there’s D.C.4 P.H. coming up this August. I haven’t played any of the previous ones so it’s kinda difficult to justify but I’d get the Getchu one if I actually end up getting it. There’s also Tsukihime which illustration for the tapestries is still not up…

Investments

31.17% this week which is up a lot from last week. That’s nice although there was still a lot of down during the week. Well, such is stock market, I guess. Still not back from two weeks ago though.

Similarly for iDeCo, it’s at 27.36% (14.69% yield) is higher than last week but not completely recovered.

Weekly Finance vol. 81

In

The two things I put up are sold for pretty nice sum which is weird because those are way beyond what I expected. I just hope the things arrive in one piece.

Future in

I mentioned two things last week but apparently I put up three. There’s the unused wireless router.

I don’t think I’ll put up anything new this/next week even though the unused monitors are really taking up space in my room…

I probably should at least get around wiping the last unused hard disk and cleaning up the unused desktop PC.

I did pull out some tapestries I may be selling but I don’t feel like checking them up etc to sell them yet. Maybe in two or three weeks.

Still no progress on selling doujinshis…

Out

Bought one voice drama from Whisp. It felt like a very long time last I bought anything from them. Their recent works have been misses for me.

Future out

Interestingly there’s still no announcement from Yuzu-Soft.

I probably should get around finally pre-ordering FGC and Onigyu Anime which I still haven’t.

Things have been pretty quiet especially after the Golden Week releases (which I bought nothing from so far although I probably should).

That does help though because I need to save quite a lot of money recovering from my recent purchases.

Investments

27.23% this week. That’s a lot of downs. It’s been downhill this week. I did buy some more funds though during the time. Hopefully it works out fine just like last year. I’m still quite far from my target for this year despite it’s past first third already.

As for iDeCo, it’s 26.72% (14.07% yield) which is also down quite a lot compared to last week.

Weekly Finance vol. 80

Forgot again last week.

In

Still nope.

Future in

Finally gotten around to put up some unused hardware. Interestingly both of them are already bid on.

There are still one more hard disk, one PC, and two monitors to be sold. First two will be on auction but the last one will probably sold to Sofmap.

I don’t think I’ve ever sold anything to Sofmap before so this may be interesting? I don’t know how much they’ll be sold for.

…or maybe all auction if their online price is any indication. Packing them will be annoying though. I may even end up just disposing them if I can’t figure out how to pack them easily.

No plan on doujinshi and tapestries and dakimakuras yet. I’m not even going to pretend to try.

Out

I think I bought some manga and stuff. Nothing major because there’s just no budget left.

Although I just remembered I haven’t budgeted Fate/Grand Carnival.

Future out

See above about FGC. And then there’s Onigyu anime. Nothing else planned otherwise, I think.

Investments

32.6% last week. Down a bit on first day market was open. And then back up the second day. Not enough to recover the down from first day though.

Interestingly iDeCo is up a bit to 30.1% (lower yield though at 15.65%).

Weekly Finance vol. 79

In

Nope.

Future in

Also nope? Or maybe I’ll finally get around selling some unused computer hardware sometime this week.

Out

I figured I should just preorder Fuyukuru for now and that’s what I did.

Meanwhile on computing side, I bought a new monitor to replace my starting-to-fail 8 years old monitor. It’s very much overpriced but I hope it’ll be a significant upgrade.

Combined, I sure have cleared my monthly budget pretty quick. Or I didn’t because I spread the accounting for those purchases over several months in the future similar to NAS upgrade I did a few months ago. The downside is of course available budget for next few months will be less.

Future out

Despite all those rather big spending, I still have a few more things I probably should preorder sometime soon. Namely Fate/Grand Carnival (FGC) and Onigyu Anime.

For FGC I may end up buying from Amazon because it’ll be cheaper there. Or somewhere else if I can find better deal. The tapestry from Tora no Ana seems pretty nice but I don’t think I need anime art tapestries. Or maybe I’ll change my mind once they publish the colored version of the bonus.

As for Onigyu Anime, on similar vein with FGC, I’ll probably buy from the cheapest store I can find… unless I change my mind and buy from Tora no Ana (again!) for that Sumi tapestry. That said, even though it’s better than the FGC one, I don’t think it’s better than my favorite tapestries I currently own and I really need to hold back on piling up tapestries.

I think I keep saying that every now and then still end up buying more tapestries anyway πŸ‘€

While writing this, I remembered about the Kakenuke console port release coming up this August. I’ll probably buy one from Animate. Or will I?

And lastly which I also just remembered, there’s that Tsukihime thing coming up (also August). I’m not going to play on console (as I don’t have any) but I’ll be keeping an eye on the bonus tapestries. It may be interesting.

Investments

32.67% last week. That’s a lot of up from previous week. I didn’t keep track of news etc so I’m not quite sure if there’s anything significant happened.

As for iDeCo, it’s 29.76% (16.29% yield). Slightly lower increase compared to general account due to composition difference.

I planned to buy some funds this month but stuff purchases I mentioned above kinda killed it whoops. Maybe next month.

By they way, as an aside, best performer fund for me so far is international stock fund which is way ahead of anything else.

On the far second place is Japanese stock fund. Quick estimate says it’s at 30% (vs 50% first place).

Third is international bond at less than 10%. Now I look closer, it’s quite a lot worse than I thought (or the Japanese stock is performing better).

On last position is Japanese bond which is at 1%… after 3 years. I shouldn’t have bothered at all. Even worse in my iDeCo account it’s still on negative. At least it’s the lowest percentage in my portfolio but it’s annoying regardless. I wonder if I should just drop it but Japanese government is probably at its worst (especially at handling the trainwreck that is Olympics and also the pandemic) at the moment and thus there’s potential for something interesting to happen. Hopefully sooner than later but it’s Japan so who knows.

Weekly Finance vol. 78

I completely forgot about this because I’ve done loads of other posts earlier last week.

In

Sold one thing! Yay. Nine more things left now.

Future in

Ended up busy with random stuff again last weekend.

Out

Didn’t buy anything~

Future out

Fuyukuru is coming in September. Maybe from Trader. May or may not be getting more. I probably should read the previous ones as well though…

And that’s about it.

Investments

29.96% last week. That’s quite a bit down from previous week. Apparently it’s earning report season and people are holding back on trading. Similarly 27.73% (15.28% yield) for iDeCo – 1% down.

Weekly Finance vol. 77

In

Nothing last week but I sold two things this week. The loss is pretty bad though at almost 70%. I kinda suspect it’d be better to just sell them to Suruga-Ya…

Future in

Too busy with other stuff this whole week so nothing here.

Out

Nothing major here. I did watch some movies and bought some doujins…

Future out

Onigyu anime. Not sure yet if I’ll bother getting one with bonus tapestry or just Amazon. The Tora no Ana one seems pretty good.

D.C.4 is getting eroge version. That’s nice though I still haven’t read any of the previous ones…

There’s still no news from Yuzu-Soft.

Investments

31.58% this week. A lot of small downs over the week and one rather large up on Friday. Somehow iDeCo went down a bit to 28.75% (15.79% yield). Or is it actually down or just because the new purchase was just in…

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 stuffβ„’ 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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

Weekly Finance vol. 67

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.

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.
