Hokenshitsu Sensei to Gothloli no Koui Official B2 Tapestry

Eroge day (yesterday)! New things for once!

So, um, I probably should write this post after the game itself but I just have something to say about this specific tapestry.

So it looks like this on the game website:

Which seemed weird considering she’s on a sofa and looks like it should be landscape instead.

And here’s how it looks like on the store page:

And I thought that makes more sense and maybe the one on the game page is just wrong.

But nope. It’s portrait orientation for some reason. That’s weird.

Orientation aside, it’s just her on sofa naked with kneesocks and gloves on (good). This is one of the two with nothing covering her crotch. They made some interesting (?) variations there.

Nice expression as well. Again, too bad it’s not landscape.

As for print quality, it’s using double suede material with the print… mostly fine if not slightly blurry. Could definitely be sharper. This also applies to all the tapestries from this release.

Also I don’t usually comment on it but the stitches aren’t quite straight. I don’t usually care about it but I saw someone who put attention on it and unfortunately this one is the one with sloppier stitching. Just as print quality, same thing with all other tapestries but with varying degrees of straightness.

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.

In

Nothing!

Future In

Despite what I said last week, still nothing! Maybe this week I will finally do it.

Out

I didn’t buy any goods but I watched a bunch of movies. And then I bought all the Blue Thermal things (manga and theme song CD). In the end they all costed a bit over 10k total.

Thankfully I overbudgeted my utility bill this month and it helped balancing things out.

Except it wasn’t quite enough. Welp.

Future Out

Nothing particularly interesting came up so far, thankfully.

Well, there’s this Sekiya Asami tapestry and pillow cover. Full image this Friday although I don’t think I’ll get this one.

There’s also mignon stuff. Nothing I really want though. Also it looks like there will be some censoring involved. And dicks do not want.

I’m short 12k from my target this month so I still need to figure out how to fix it. Or maybe just actually sell those unused PC parts or something. And other things.

Investments

28.78% normal account and <fill in iDeCo number here later> iDeCo closing last week. Still going down as expected…

At two weeks now it sure sucks. No end in sight yet either.

…I probably should move this series to private as there isn’t much to talk anymore :<

Koikake Kunimi Nako Dakimakura Cover

And here’s the pillow cover of someone which doesn’t have route ;_;

Just the back side of the packaging and label thing.

Front side! Panties! Cat-headed Knee-socks! That’s not quite lewd but sure, I guess. I prefer a smile but this one is still good enough.

Also is that the actual spelling of her name or what.

It would’ve been nice if the taken off skirt is drawn somewhere as well.

And then the main side. The line is drawn. I think the overall design is the usual Shiratama design that is curved tighter and overall quite slim.

As per above, I do still prefer a smile but this one isn’t too bad with her mouth barely open. Open mouth is bad.

This is also the first (and only?) drawing of her naked. Route please thanks.

Too bad one of the socks is taken off although the panties still stuck on one side is a rather interesting touch.

Now I look again, where’s her inner shirt?

And on a random though, it could be interesting seeing her with hairs untied…

As for print quality and all, it’s the usual A&J Lyctron stuff with no obvious problem on image quality.

Weekly Finance vol. 123

In

Nothing again. Not unexpected.

Future In

I thought I’d sort things last week but I ended up buying something which took out a good chunk of room space. Better luck next week.

Out

Koikake’s Nako dakimakura cover has finally released. Price sure is climbing up slowly with now at 13k.

I also bought a new hug pillow. It’s a DHR7000H Premium. It’s heavy at 3.3kg which is a good 1kg heavier than my current DHR6000. My old one was over 5 years ago and is pretty gross now although not always visible thanks to the cover. I figured replacement is finally in order and I bought one. I later learned I have an unused coupon for Melonbooks (or at least I think it’s unused) Nevermind I used the 5% off coupons and only the 3% one remains. It’d still be some savings but not as much as I initially thought. I bought from Amazon instead.

It came in a rather big box which apparently could fit my other unused case which I really should get around selling. That’d be nice if it does fit since the alternative box is pretty annoying to deal with as it’s quite a lot larger and the case isn’t that big.

Anyway, back to spending money, BugBug this month sees the preorder of Ambitious Mission B2 tapestry of Yae. There’s also non-R18 version. I got both. The background is not quite done yet but I hope it’s better than their Ria tapestry. I’m not holding my breath on this one though. I’m like 90% sure it’ll be about the same random light shapes in the background. I’ll be happy to be proven wrong. Thankfully since a few months ago BugBug finally got into internet era and allow their stuff to be ordered online instead of having to mail the form order along with the money using a rather expensive post office mailing option. Oh and it used to require buying the actual magazine as well.

I bought both versions just in case (?). Good thing there are still quite a bit of Saga Planets budget left.

Future Out

Two eroges are coming out this month (with Aokana Ex 2 being delayed as expected). Those are budgeted already so not really a problem.

There isn’t anything else announced so far as I kind of expected. Well, except for Yuzusoft which is still rather unknown when they’ll announce their next title. They’ve confirmed they’re working on it so something should come up this year?

Meanwhile Sakura no Toki…

On other notes, I dug up my previous years accounting and I noticed just how much selling stuff used to help propping up my budget. With those gone of course budgeting nowadays feels really tight with seemingly no extra available at all while trying to increase the investment allocation at the same time. That’s despite I’ve been holding back on buying stuff. For the moment I’m keeping my current plan of slightly increased investment (compared to previous year) but unless some help comes up I’ll probably have to lower my target. Or waste less money (nooooo).

Investments

31.09% normal account and 28.89% (11.98% yield) iDeCo closing last week. Thanks, certain country.

That was pretty much expected and I just hope it recovers in not too long time frame (months, not years).

Weekly Finance vol. 122

In

Nothing! Yay. There’s only 8 things left anyway. I think I should just send them off to Suruga-Ya.

Future In

I still haven’t done anything about the PC parts due to moving things around. Interestingly after moving things around it’s probably easier to start sorting doujinshi and stuff instead. I’ll see how annoyed I am in a few days.

Out

As indicated by the Maid Choco post, I finally got the dakimakura cover hanger. That was a bit expensive for a hanger.

Also picked up the Fuyukuru tapestry. I should get around taking photo of it sometime. Maybe this week. The other good thing about my room rearrange is it’s got more contiguous space and thus easier to set up ironing board.

My Taruto Acrylic Clock was broken last Friday. The clock just stopped moving and changing battery didn’t help. Disassembled it and didn’t see anything wrong with the gears so most likely the electronic parts was broken. Thankfully a few hours later I discovered it’s attached using screw so it’s easy to replace. Got the generic parts replacement from Amazon and everything fit just nice including the clock hands. It’s the one for 4mm thick clock face.

Future Out

Nothing here.

Investments

30.24% normal account and 25.11% (11.00% yield) iDeCo. Thanks Russia ๐Ÿ˜

It has been trending down these last few weeks and their action definitely made it worse.

A.M.R 2021-12 Winter Maid Choco Dakimakura Cover

This supposed to arrive end of 2021 (or early 2022) but for some unknown reason (most likely Booth overloaded) it only arrived last week.

And since I finally bought dakimakura cover hanger, here’s full shot of it.

Front side. It’s actually on the lewder side for an A.M.R dakimakura cover with only one side of nipples being visible. Now I think about it, it’s rather rare seeing her with panties visible and being put on.

The unbalanced socks is interesting, I guess? I’m not much fan of it though.

I think this is her most lewd costume so far with that micro… maid costume…? Is that a thing? I wonder if a matching one for Apolo will be made eventually. That’d be nice.

And then the other side. Unfortunately the other side of socks is pulled down but at least the other side which is of type kneesocks is intact.

Panties off, with line nicely drawn as per usual of her doujin stuff. And now I look closer, I have no idea what that string around her panties is.

I think I prefer her front side expression for this one.

Material is Sakuramochi which is my first time seeing it. I’m not sure I can tell difference to Hakuou (the previous version by same company). No complaint though. The print is good as usual. And being from Shiromoufu, it’s got the best zipper.

Weekly Finance vol. 121

Sold one case I mentioned last week (I haven’t put up the other one). That’s nice and all except the part I mistakenly set it as buy now instead of auction so it’s sold at minimum price ๐Ÿฅฒ

At least I set the minimum at a sane minimum instead of something stupid like 1 yen. It still kind of sucks regardless though. Oh well.

Future In

I can’t sell the other unused case yet because I need to sell the currently installed motherboard and CPU and RAM sticks first. RAM sticks and CPU shouldn’t be too difficult but the motherboard will probably be a bit annoying. It’s an LGA motherboard definitely isn’t helping. I hope this random socket cover I have can be used.

Nothing on doujinshi and other goods yet.

Out

Saga Planets 2022 Valentine! Yay I didn’t expect this although I should’ve remembered they did it last year as well. Too bad no R18 tapestry of Yae. I’m getting it anyway though because thighs and kneesocks.

Oh and Kaguya mug cup while at it. Considered either that or Yae but ended up with the one with better costume ๐Ÿ‘€ Getting both was also an option but I don’t need that many mug cup. It shouldn’t be all that rare anyway even if I ended up wanting it later.

That one used the existing Saga Planets budget I have so it didn’t impact my extra budget.

Future Out

Talking about extra budget, I don’t have much for next month it seems. And then with the missed target last year I should at least attempt saving as much as I can.

I want to build up some Yuzusoft budget first at least. And some PC parts. And other things.

I sure is not going very well. And then I just remembered I should start budgeting for my flight home once this virus thing calms down.

Realistically, if I keep my current savings target I won’t have much else I can budget for. Maybe it’s a bit too ambitious after all. I’ll check again next year (and hope I can survive this year with current plan).

At least there’s only one new thing coming up which I’ll probably end up getting. It’s the other chapter of the Citrus Hokenshitsu Sensei series. It should be just the game itself this time around so it should be pretty cheap.

Combined with my slow (nonexistent) reading pace I don’t think I’ll be getting DC4 just yet. And maybe not Futakoi either. I’ll check back end of next month.

Investments

34.17% normal account and 31.39% (13.43% yield) iDeCo closing last week. Yep, it’s another horrible week.

That said, as usual, more funds for this month which I just did but looking again, I could’ve waited until next month as I bought things twice last month.

On the bright side, that may be what I needed to make up last year’s missed target.

Sold one tapestry! Yay. It’s been a while last I sold tapestries.

Future In

I’m feeling lazy. I really should start selling more of these unused computer cases and stuff and free up my room.

I’ll see how I feel next week.

Out

Still nothing here.

Future Out

I still haven’t decided on Sana dakimakura cover. I’m currently leaning towards no due to general composition and lack of budget and lack of space.

Nekonin tapestry preorder has also started. If it’s Ritsu I’ll be more likely to get them but I think I’ll pass on Yura & Tama. The coloring being done by Takano Yuki is pretty interesting though.

Otherwise there’s nothing else particularly interesting so far.

Budget wise I’m doing fine… barely. At current rate, I could spare quite some budget for Yuzusoft again as I clear up budget for upcoming eroge (up to May) this month. Oh and there’s also that missed budget target from last year. I’ll look into slowly clearing it back over next few months.

Investments

39.70% closing last week. Well it was cut short on Thursday as last Friday was public holiday here. But still, 3% higher (absolute number) compared to last week is quite something.

32.94% (13.79% yield) for iDeCo is also up compared to last week although it’s not even 1%. But still, up is up.

Karumaruka Circle Pikatto Anime AnimeJapan 2014 A2 Tapestry

I’m not actually sure if it’s the correct release event.

But anyway, it’s Koyomi. They recycled game CG. And annoyingly the upscaling here is very bad which is unfortunate considering the material is good.

I have a feeling I knew about this a few years back which is why I never ended up getting it. And then I forgot about it and bought it anyway last year lol.

Kakenuke Seishun Sparking! Shiori Summer B2 Tapestries

Huh, weird, apparently I never end up making posts on these. But, yeah, those are a thing.

Can use better background to be honest. Still better than plain color at least.

And then the non-R18 version. I prefer her expression here. This is one of those rare instances I buy both version.

Material is double suede and the print is pretty good. No problem here.

Fuyukara, Kururu Melonbooks B2 Tapestry

Another unironed tapestry post! Yay.

This one is from Fuyukuru Melonbooks bonus tapestry. She’s the best when together with Touko.

Loli! Knee-socks! Striped panties! Blonde twintails! Now I wrote it they sure jammed all the generic traits on her. Tsundere included. But that’s fine to me.

Similar to the Trader one, thin material and okay printing. Double suede would’ve been better but I’ve gotten something with worse material recently.

Fuyukara, Kururu Trader B2 Tapestry

So I thought I should just post these un-ironed tapestries photos but now looking closer at them I’m not so sure anymore. The shit lighting isn’t helping at all either. That said, I probably just won’t do it if I wait until I do it proper. Especially considering my room is a bit too full at the moment and ironing is one of those activity which require some space.

I’ll fix those when I actually want to put them up and thus forced to iron them beforehand.

Anyway, it’s Yuuhi. Interesting she wears knee-socks here as I don’t think she does usually. Also interesting the other thing which would be spoiler-ish. Or maybe that’s how the normal state looks like? I doubt it though.

It’s also my first tapestry from Nanohana Kohina.

It’s usual thin material and the printing is okay. Nothing offensive.

Sold a bunch of computer parts yay. The CPU ended up being sold more than I bought it for. Component pricing is weird nowadays.

The Z210 also has been sold. It’s a bit less than I hoped but it’s fine, I guess.

Future In

Finally got rid of premium so I had to put everything up again manually. I still want to put up the remaining computer parts. Two cases (+PSU), one mobo, one cpu, and a pair of RAM sticks. And then there are a bunch of unused 10Gbps cards.

Once those done I should start selling unused covers and other things. Oh and sending doujin to Suruga-Ya. I think it’s been over a year (or two?) since I planned to do it and I still haven’t done it.

Out

Nothing here.

Future Out

I forgot about Yuzusoft dakimakura re-release thing. I’ll maybe get the Sana one. Or should I.

Money from auction should cover a good chunk of budget for this month but still not enough for one extra dakimakura cover. At worst I’ll reallocate existing eroge budget to next month.

Nothing much else otherwise. No upcoming event either so there shouldn’t be much to worry about for the rest of this month. I think.

I can probably reconsider DC4SH and Futakoi. I’ve been quite busy with other stuff lately and haven’t been able to read eroge much though. I’ll see how far I can go.

And then I just remembered about the missing 200k from last year. Uh, yeah, I don’t know yet.

Investments

36.13% closing last week. That’s… worse than previous week. It was some roller coaster with up one day and down another day. Unfortunately there are more downs than up overall. Interestingly Japan stock market seem to be going the opposite direction of the rest of the world.

iDeCo is at 32.85% (13.77% yield). It’s barely up but the yield is even lower probably because… I don’t know ?_? I don’t think there’s any new purchase in between. Maybe it’s counting based on the month.

Weekly Finance vol. 118

In

Sold them RAM sticks. It’s over half the original purchase price but that was over 6 years ago.

Future In

Finally put up the HP Z210 for auction. Let’s see if anyone takes that. Questionable GPU and SSD aside (but it’s still an SSD and 1TB of it), it should be a pretty good deal. Packing it up will be a pain though.

Out

There isn’t much this week apart of signing up someone’s Fanbox and upgrading a Fantia plan.

That said, I readjusted budgeting stuff and will be ending this month with a negative 15k in total :’)

Future Out

After the readjustment, my next month budget is negative 30k thanks to covering for current month and the upcoming eroge purchases.

That’s not actually too bad considering there shouldn’t be much else for March and April.

Assuming I’m not going ahead with random PC peripheral purchases, that is ๐Ÿ‘€ Have been looking at wireless mice lately.

Investments

RIP stock market. At 32.73% closing last week, it sure is just keeping going down. I did go on with buying more stock index funds and thankfully I got pretty good price.

Similarly for iDeCo at 27.9% (12.35% yield).

Next index fund purchase will be in another month…

Weekly Finance vol. 117

In

Still nothing =)

Future In

Started selling some RAMs except no one bought it last week ;_;

Put up some more unused computer parts and I’m hoping to finish selling all the unused parts by end of next month. And then maybe start looking at the doujinshi and other stuff again.

I just realized I planned Suruga-Ya doujinshi stuff since last year and I’ve done jack shit about it.

Out

Bought a bunch of Kuru series related stuff. Those were expensive. I think I counted upwards of 30k in total and it’s not even complete as I’m still missing Natsukuru Trader bonus.

I don’t usually list this individually but Hunter x Hunter Greed Island opening theme song has been available on online stores since last year. I couldn’t find lossless version of it but AAC at 320kbps is sufficiently good. It’s just not quite ideal if I ever want to convert it to any other formats.

Future Out

And there went my extra maybe DC4 and Futakoi budget.

I did my budgeting for February I’m still 40k short for the eroge and stuff preorders. I’ll barely make it by March at current rate.

As for the missing 200k last year, I’ll try making them up from the auctions…

Investments

36.55% this week. That’s getting even worse. The one fund I bought few weeks ago already went down by almost 5%. Oh well, that’s one way to start this year.

iDeCo is even worse at 32.48% (14.16% yield).

Maybe I should buy even more funds… is what I thought but the system is currently on maintenance. Maybe tomorrow morning if I remember to.

Weekly Finance vol. 116

In

Nothing again =)

Future In

Selling the whole PC sucks especially if it’s self built. I’ll sell them as parts instead eventually. That also means I have to rerun memtest as I’m not going to sell the whole four not-quite-matching sticks at once…

Out

Finally preordered the Ambitious Mission Moeoh tapestry. B1 size because bigger is better (up to B1).

Future Out

DC4SH is still on hold until maybe next month. Or March.

There’s also Asapro’s Futakoi but I really need to clear up my budget a bit more before deciding. Interestingly it’s April as well just like DC4SH.

This dakimakura cover is mildly interesting but I don’t think I’ll be getting it… maybe.

I just realized I made weird mistake when adjusting budget for 2021. The original plan was to copy 2020 number (100k per month for normal account) except cut off by 600k for emergency budget except what I ended up with was cutting it off by 800k as I set normal account target at 1M a year instead of 1.2M. The end result is I missed my target by 200k =) Fuck.

Next month budget will be sometime next week so I hope I can figure out where to put them?

Investments

This was horrible week and closed at 40.96% which is a lot of down ;_; There doesn’t seem to be any particular reason either? Not from my quick look at finance news section anyway.

At least it’s not as bad for iDeCo at 38.04% (15.99% yield). I have no idea why.

Weekly Finance vol. 115

In

Sold more unused games. All of them in fact. Yay.

Future In

Still nothing this week. Hopefully I’ll get around putting them up for auction next week. I also need to remember to actually cancel Yahoo! Premium as I mentioned last week. Annoying thing is auctions made when on Premium can’t be reused after cancelling.

Out

It wasn’t planned but I ended up buying a bunch of doujinshi; digital and paper. That’s about 10k off my extra budget.

Future Out

I kinda want the tapestry from this. That’ll be 12k and I’ve got no such budget.

Similarly I’m slightly leaning towards getting DC4SH but I’m sure I’ll just backlog it for years and not to mention I’ll need to at least play DC4PH beforehand. And maybe optionally the whole DC series but I think that’s optional? I’ll decide based on my pace next few weeks.

I need to preorder Ambitious Mission Moeoh tapestry. I’m still waiting for it to appear on Amazon though.

There shouldn’t be anything else coming up anytime soon. I think. Short of Yuzusoft announcing their next title.

Investments

44.05% closing last week. After a good start first two days, everything went down the rest of the week ending it up lower compared to previous week.

Same deal with iDeCo at 38.79% (16.26% yield).

Which reminded me I should start buying things again starting this month. Buys.

Weekly Finance vol. 114

In

Amazingly sold two items this week. And that cleared up the last multiple items auction I have. I need to remember cancelling the free trial Yahoo! Premium before it ends.

Future In

Nothing yet. Maybe sometime this week? I have plenty of unused PC now which I really should get around selling already.

Out

No big purchases over the week. I did buy some ero manga and doujinshi and last month’s Moeoh.

Future Out

As I’ve preordered (almost) everything last week, there’s nothing new yet. Yuzusoft may come anytime soon now so there’s that. And of course I need to spare enough budgets for the unpaid preorders for next one or two months.

I almost forgot about Ambitious Mission Moeoh tapestry but it’s not in Amazon yet so it may be a while until I can actually preorder it. I have Saga Planets budget remaining but as it will also be used for preorders, it means it’ll take a more while to clear up the budget.

As for Kantoku’s tapestry, I’m skipping it.

Last year ended up barely on target. I hope I don’t as crazy as last year. Especially on computer upgrades.

Closing Book

Looking at last year’s closing post I remembered I made this section so here it is for 2021.

Computer Stuff

  • Ryzen system (which I ended up not needing)
  • iPhone (also ended up not quite needed as Rakuten later added support for iPhone 8 although eSim support is mildly useful and faster CPU is welcome)
  • A lot more SSDs
  • Proper BD drive for ripping stuff
  • Xbox controller and related accessories (wireless adapter and rechargeable batteries)
  • More RAMs
  • Monitor
  • Small WiFi router
  • Keyboard keycaps
  • Ethernet cards (both gigabit and 10Gbit – although I ended up with too many 10Gbit cards now)
  • Speakers (by subwoofer. Or maybe it’ll return this year?)
  • Ryzen 5900X
  • PSU (should’ve gotten 750W or 850W instead of 650W)

At over half million yen, it’s a bit too much. Some of them have been in planning for years so I hope I don’t need to do this anymore.

Eroge, Anime, etc

16 new eroges on 2021. Or 12 if I exclude preorder for 2022. Meanwhile I cleared a total of 8 titles. It’s better compared to last year but is still pretty slow in term of completion.

As for goods, I count 10 dakimakura covers and 37 tapestries. Both are down compared to previous year.

I’m not going to write down the detail but total spending is a lot less compared to last year. It’s just a bit over half of last year.

Except for FGO which I ended up spending 160k(!). Compare that to 13k previous year. I don’t think I’ll do that ever again.

Investments

45.66% last week. Also last year. That’s even more up and I think it’s highest the number for the year. That’s also a lot more compared to last year. I don’t know if this will keep up (I doubt it) but it sure was a good year for stocks.

iDeCo is also up at 39.63% (17.27% yield). It didn’t quite reach the highest for the year but not too bad overall.

Senkou no Clarias F

Another late post, this one is from November. The expansion pack (?) for Senkou no Clarias. It’s a pretty expensive one all things considered.

A good chunk of the cost went to that acrylic block thing, I bet.

And then there’s the bonus shikishi. I think this is the only R-18 shikishi so far?

Compared to the original, the cover for this one is quite plain especially with that white background.

Fuyukara, Kururu

Happy new year and here’s the first (scheduled) post for this year.

Now I think about it, I should’ve posted this one before that soundtrack CD.

Oh well. It’s the Specialite edition just because. And then there’s the bonus CD from Sofmap and Getchu and Official Store. I think the Official Store one is made redundant by the soundtrack CD but I haven’t checked it (and can’t check since I’m currently migrating data and they’re inaccessible until it’s done). Yep it’s redundant. Good job me.

The content. Also has another drama CD.

And lastly the bonus shikishi. I don’t know why there’s a Natsukuru shikishi in it but sure, fine. Better than balloons of Akikuru at least.

Another weird thing is the Fuyukuru shikishi themselves are B5 sized instead of usual shikishi size.

Yuzusoft Pentabox

Here’s how I drowned myself deeper in my backlogs. Five (four if excluding one already in my backlog) new titles. All in one convenient package, complete with soundtracks.

Each are in their own case with booklet on one side and the discs on the other.

Unfortunately two of the cases have their booklet holder slightly teared up. I’m not bothering getting them replaced since I don’t really care that much about the packaging. Although I’ll end up keeping the box just because they’re convenient.

And lastly the bundled calendar from official store. Upon a quick glance it’s clear the images are original cover then the newly drawn image for each titles. But being penta means five means only 10 images available is what I thought. Then I realized they cheated Tenshin Ranman by including both original and the non-ero edition images of it.

At double height A4, it’s pretty large. It sure would be nice if they also label the public holidays instead of just marking them red.

ef series

As it turned out I’ve never bought the game at all. And now I have. The bottom right one isn’t a game box but just a booklet.

Bought them for rather cheap from Suruga-Ya.

That’s a nice choice for manual cover.

Hokejo

Full title is Hokenshitsu no Sensei to Shabondama Chuudoku no Joshu which is a bit too long.

Another thing added to the backlog. At least this one should be pretty short being single route and all. And then another route coming up next year.

I try reading this before the second route is released ๐Ÿ‘€

The large box contains a tall slim DVD case which contains one disc and manual booklet. The inside background is covered but it’s the dakimakura cover image bundled in different version of this which I’m not getting (and is pretty expensive at the moment). Not that I’m planning to get it anyway.

Karumaruka Circle – Natsume Koyomi Dakimakura Cover (v2)

I was checking my collection database and noticed I’m so backlogged this year in term of photo and catalogue. I even missed cataloging at least one thing. And worse, the photo database is missing so many items. I’ve caught up with dakimakura database but tapestry is probably missing quite a lot of things at the moment.

In the meantime, here’s one not so new thing I received last month. It’s my third copy because I sold the first one and then bought another one (for cheap, and in rather terrible condition) and finally this one.

This is the improved version where it’s not barbie design anymore and the actual genital is drawn more properly.

The back side is unfortunately same back pose.

Even more nothingness.

Of course nothing. I did lower price for some stuff though. Probably still not enough seeing the price on second hand stores.

Out

I don’t think I preordered this many things at once before.

First off is Ambitious Mission. As mentioned before, I’m getting from four different stores for Kaguya and Yae stuff.

And while at it I also preordered the Kikka Winter tapestry. It’ll be shipped together with the new game though so it’ll be a while until I actually receive it. I’m skipping the Kaguya New Year tapestry because it’s a bit too safe. Kikka isn’t R-18 either but them thighs and thighhighs are good enough.

And then I’m also getting Nako dakimakura. Too good to skip. I think.

There’s Fuyukuru tapestry of Chiemi & Touko. I’m still very early at the game but I think I like them best at the moment so I’m getting it for now.

Back to eroge, I’ve preordered Unless Terminalia. I think I mentioned it before as well but it’s the all voice drama stores. The addition of Amazon raised the total cost a bit.

Oh and I finally preordered Aokana Extra2. It’s from Amazon because I don’t really care about the bonus. And looking back I probably should just wait and buy it second hand instead when I actually want to play it? Bad decision as usual (though this one is reversible).

And lastly and completely not planned was preordering Hokeloli (and buying Hokejo). The dakimakura doesn’t seem all that good but I like the tapestries quite a lot. Also thighhighs.

I didn’t actually have enough budget for all those above. I did some reshuffling and managed to secure just enough for the online orders (as I can’t delay the charges for those) but it’s impossible to budget for all of them at once. Especially not after the addition of that Hokeloli.

Though I think I should be able to allocate February budget for the rest of them. That said, Yuzusoft budget is currently at 0 because I reallocated them all (and that’s how I managed to secure enough for online orders).

Future Out

Nothing here. I’ve dealt all that can be dealt for the near future.

…is what I thought but I’m still undecided on Kantoku’s twin tapestry. I’ll figure it out sometime later.

Investments

43.62% this week. More up yay. Still haven’t passed the peak from this year though.

iDeCo is again a bit lower at 37.20% (16.34% yield) which is weird. For once it doesn’t follow my normal account even accounting for closing time difference.

Makulove New Dakimakura Covers

Right after posting the weekly thing I remembered about another upcoming thing. I’ve been considering doing separate posts for upcoming titles again and I especially felt that writing for Anmitsu (Ambitious Mission) section in the last post.

Back to topic, Makulove announced hint for new items last Friday. The hint was it’s from their existing titles. People guessed right away it’s Rinka and Nako which seems right on par.

But the thing is.

Nako doesn’t have route.

I remember people wanted it a lot back in around its release day.

But she doesn’t have route.

It sure would be nice if they release an append scenario of her route together with this thing.

I don’t know myself I’ll be getting the covers though.

Inb4 it’s actually silhouette someone else ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Still… nothing…

…I really should get around doing stuff for here. Maybe next year ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Out

Ikegami Akane artbooks digital edition is out. So I bought one from DMM because the initial plan of getting from DLsite seem to be going to take a while with the item missing from there. And then I remembered about Kindle a while after buying that. Considering another artbook released today (Yano Mitsuki Eushully) is still quite a lot larger on DLsite compared to Kindle, I’ll keep a look on it in case there’s higher quality for Ikegami Akane one as well. That sure is a lot of duplicated purchases. Yay DRM. Imagine if they just sell raw pdf as is and the same across stores.

For reference, there’s no difference between DMM and Kindle in term of censorship for this particular book.

Apart of that, I also bought ef series. first, latter, and fandisc. I thought I’ve already bought them but I haven’t. I’ve always considered them to be part of backlog so this practically doesn’t add anything extra to my backlog. Kind of.

Future Out

Saga Planets new title, Ambitious Mission is finally announced. A bit of DNS trouble with they new domain aside, I think I like the main heroine this time (Kaguya). May or may not have anything to do with her questionable getup. Yae also looks pretty good so my favorites at the moment are those two. Atena is a bit too big and I’m not much interested in Nijimu.

Charlotte is a bit of ??? at the moment as her character design seem a bit odd. By process of elimination she’s designed by Toranosuke but it just doesn’t seem right. The available images – character stand and one CG – don’t help much either apart of hinting it’s probably not Toranosuke. Current suspect is Kakenuke’s Ritsu illustrator Hanesaki Seika but there isn’t much way to confidently determine at the moment.

Release date is still far away so I should have enough time gathering budget for it. Current store bonus situation indicates I may be buying from Sofmap, Suruga-Ya, Trader, and Official Store. Those will be a bit under 50k and I curerntly have 30k budget already spared for them over the months. Budgeting for this should be easy.

That said, I may also be getting Kikka and Kaguya tapestry from their Winter Fes. The lack of R18 version is unfortunate and I’m waiting until Kaguya tapestry is colored before deciding.

Apart of that, there isn’t much else… oh yeah there’s Kantoku C99 Akemi/Himeru tapestry. No budget for that at the moment so maybe next year. That’s one big tapestry.

Investments

A lot of ups and downs over the week and the end result for last week is 41.28% which is… actually up by 0.15% compared to last week o_o

I didn’t expect that because there seemed to be more downs than ups. And that’s why I have this section here.

Unfortunately it isn’t reflected in iDeCo with 37.29% (16.38% yield) which is down by 0.72%.
