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

Future in

Meanwhile no progress on packing up old doujinshis as usual.

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

Out

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

Future out

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

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

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

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

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

Future in

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

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

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

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

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

Out

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

Future out

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

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

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

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

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

Future in

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

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

Out

Didn’t buy anything this week.

Future out

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

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

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

A.M.R new dakimakura

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

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

Kakenuke seishun sparking! Amiami B2 tapestry

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

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

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

Kakenuke seishun sparking! Game + extras

I’m supposed to post this last week.

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

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

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

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

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

The target is to actually play this sometime this month…

Weekly Finance vol. 45

In

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

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

Future in

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

Out

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

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

Future out

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

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

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

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

Weekly Finance vol. 44

In

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

Future in

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

Out

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

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

Future out

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

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

Weekly Finance vol. 43

Picture not related

In

I think I sold like one or two items.

Future in

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

Out

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

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

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

Future out

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

Eshi100 10 artbook (and 10th anniversary book)

It’s pretty much just habit now.

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

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

Popfes 2020 Summer, Eshi100 10, etc

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cafe Stella Drama CD

I actually got this weeks ago but never ended up posting or even opening this until today.

Just like Riddle Joker the MC is voiced here as well. He doesn’t seem to have done anything major. Or maybe it’s just me not knowing seiyuu world.

I haven’t checked it at all \o/ I’m not expecting something like Riddle Joker (which I very much liked because Ayase) but I sure hope it’s fun.

Tapestry (pre-)orders

And then there are a lot of tapestries up for pre-order.

  • Cute Tail series tapestries. It’s part of release of illustration book. They then go on and release tapestries of them as well. It looks like the genital parts are censored which is unfortunate (as seen above).
    • Takano Yuki above is the most interesting one but censored.
  • HOTLIMIT2020 tapestries (and others). The title says GOT x Tora no ana but they’re selling stuff on Melonbooks as well. Weird. Also seems to be censored in worse fashion compared to Cute Tail above. Or maybe just the sample?
    • I like the Henreader one most but censor =[
  • Melonbooks 2020-08 tapestries. These aren’t usually censored. Comes in multiple sizes. Some are still using suede – the thin material – though.
    • Yukie’s one seems the best one for me but hmmmm. Also kinda big. And I have no space and really shouldn’t be buying random tapestries.
  • Melonbooks Underwears4 tapestries. Not really new but the pre-order is still ongoing.
    • Some interesting ones like from Piyodera Mucha, Kimishima Ao, Mikagami Mamizu, Suimya, and maybe others. Still not enough to entice me buying though. Especially for Kimishima Ao, I will be getting a tapestry for Einstein anyway. Worse background but cuter character.
  • Melonbooks Girls Collection Revival tapestries. Those are recycled. The various sizes and reversibles are new though. And it’s a mystery why some of them don’t have sample image up yet.
    • Old stuff is old. Still pass.

There are so many tapestries especially from Melonbooks. There are even more from Melonbooks – be it direct by themselves or as doujin goods.

I could’ve ended up buying quite a lot of them had I’m not currently overloaded.

Nope.

Future in

I think I should put up a PC but I haven’t yet. Maybe this weekend or something.

Out

Bought Mash tapestry and also Double Okita. The Double Okita one uses “matte suede” (?) which I don’t remember seeing before. It would be nice if it’s usual double suede just with fancier name.

Future out

A bit later today is Popfes so it’ll be about 10k for the 9-nine soundtracks.

Afterwards I’ll be going to Eshi 100 and maybe buy the book as usual. And the 10 years celebration book? I don’t think I’ll be getting any goods here.

Further in the future, next month there will be a new Apollo dakimakura cover.

As for overall budget etc, it looks like I have about 30k budget available for random stuff. Nothing else is coming up so far so maybe it’ll end just like that (ha ha).

Weekly Finance vol. 41

In

None.

Future in

I’ll probably finally put up my old PC for sale sometime this week. As for Suruga-ya, um, maybe next month. Kind of rushing for Kinkoi at the moment.

Out

Bought some doujins and CDs and some random stuff. Nothing much.

Future out

Next week is Pop Fes and I’m getting that 9-nine OST. It’s pretty expensive.

There’s also Whirlpool song collection. I don’t usually get them as they usually provide songs together with the game but I noticed I’m missing some Nekonin songs so maybe I’ll get this one? The shipping is a bit costly at 1100yen.

Oh, right, I almost forgot but there will be a new Apollo dakimakura coming up next month. Not sure what the occasion will be (probably Oreyome) but more Apollo is welcome.

Weekly shonen magazine 2020-34 – FGO Summer Poster

B4-sized pin-up poster from the magazine. I cut off the binding area and took the poster off.

I initially hoped for this to be included in the digital version but annoyingly there’s no such luck. RIP 300yen.

Apparently they’ll be selling fancier poster version of this. Will need to wait until next number for the full information.

Okita part is a bit too small 😞

Weekly Finance vol. 40

Next month?

In

Sold two things. Yay. Still at loss.

Future in

Nothing~

Out

Got some extra budget this month so I bought some doujin voice drama and other stuff in my list. I can even squeeze in some planned spending budget for next month to this month.

Future out

I ended up pre-ordering Tsuki no shoujo. Yay. Also Sakuretto. Both Sofmap although the former doesn’t include any bonus.

The usual shop has announced their lineup and it looks like I’ll be spending quite a bit less than I set aside although they then started pre-order for a rather unrelated thing which will eat up the extra budget. Oh well.

There’s nothing much else apart of that. Maybe Sora no shoujo as I pre-ordered the second part, Oshilove OST, Drapri, and Clarias? Some of them will probably be next month.

Weekly Finance vol. 39

This week’s report is in previous post so there’s nothing new here.

Future in

I managed to put up some stuff for auction. Mainly when swapping them out from wall. I’ll find out if they worth anything.

Out

Didn’t spend much at all this week.

Future out

The certain 2020 Summer store coming up soon it’ll probably the last spending for this month. I’ll be placing some pre-orders as well but those don’t really “cost” money. I’ll probably get Sakura no kumo after all.

As for Clarias, I still don’t know.

August is coming soon and while there won’t be Comiket, there are still Eshi 100 and Pop Fes (which I did get the ticket). I’ll probably get the Eshi 100 book as usual and as for Pop Fes there isn’t much interesting shown up so far. Hopefully Palette will release some OST or drama CD. That assumes the events aren’t being cancelled thanks to increasing infected people in Tokyo though.

I probably shouldn’t have bothered with those events to begin with.

Senkou no clarias website updated

After the weird countdown about an update (why), the website has been updated.

Planned for December release and pre-order starts today. Store bonus images are also mostly up although there are still some 企画中 items remaining.

If I’m going to buy it, I’ll probably get from Tora no ana for that Camus tapestry above.

The gameplay intro is still missing though. Which reminded me this will be my first Giga gameplay game as I’ve never played Baldr series before. And also my first Suzuhira Hiro game.

I coincidentally visited the site two minutes before it’s updated and after reloading right on time, they missed the update by few minutes and I was greeted by this instead:

Sold four items last week and another one this week. I think it’s around 50% loss. At this point it’s better than nothing.

Future in

Still nothing. I should get around putting up my unused server sometime soon. And then maybe some tapestries. Or Suruga-ya stuff. Not quite sure yet. Maybe I’ll finally get around next month or something. I kind of want to focus on reading eroge a bit more. The backlog is killing me.

Out

I completely forgot about pre-ordering Oregairu kan BDs so that I did this week. That blew my budget this month so I allowed myself to mark it as installment payment for booking purpose. This means the available budget for next few months will be reduced by few thousands. I don’t usually do this. In fact, most of the times I do this is usually for buying BDs like this time. Considering I’ve been buying previous seasons’ discs, I should’ve prepared this when it’s announced.

Thankfully it’s the only big purchase so far.

Future out

And there’s nothing else I foresee coming this month. There will probably be Cuffs stuff but I’ve set aside budget for those. I hope it’s enough.

As for next month, there will be Popfes and Eshi100. Popfes isn’t new but the lack of Comiket and having Eshi100 in August are.

Eh, it’ll be fine.
