Sold one last 6TB HDD I have. Overall I recouped 60% of the original purchase price. Not too bad for a mistake, I guess. Not sure why people paid so much money for that.
That’s it but 7k is still nice.
Adjusted some starting bids and… the result still doesn’t seem too good. I haven’t put up any more tapestries for auction either. At this rate might as well wait until next year or something.
This month’s Kakenuke pillow cover preorder is Kikka! And that was rather surprising. I expected for her turn to be at least second half. Preordered right away. Not that it counts against my extra spending as I’ve budgeted it.
I also bought all existing Amayakashi jouzu no Nagasato-san chapters. It’s manga from ASa Project illustrator. It all started from this tweet. The story itself is pretty simple but I like the art and the lewds (of course). Interesting side note, it’s also available in Amazon but the censor is way worse over there. I then attempted to get a refund and somehow it worked. That’s cool. Thanks Amazon (and no thanks for the censor).
I found out Kidou Muichi has their latest book sold in this Highring eBooks store. The best part is it’s plain PDF with no DRM attached.
Preorder for Ikegami Akane’s latest artbook in Tora no ana has been started so I placed one there straight away. I still hate their online store. The part where they seem to just cancel order when failed charging the credit card especially feels risky. I think in Melonbooks they allow you to reenter a different card if the registered one failed but I don’t know what will happen for Tora no ana.
So, uh, I don’t think I’m getting anything from Saga Planets this time after all.
And I’m not sure about Palette either. The Mashifoni CD is mildly interesting and so is the calendar. Noa tapestry is as well but as I mentioned last week I’m keeping down non-R18 tapestries. I even ended up selling Tina tapestry despite having looking for it for the longest time. Maybe I’ll decide once I see the lineup for their all ages bundle.
Which brings us to the 9-nine all ages edition. The game will also bundle a classic arrangement of the soundtracks. And the limited edition will additionally have more drama CD and mysterious letter from Sophi. At 33k yen, I don’t know if it’s worth it. Preorder starts next week so the store bonus should be out rather soon as well.
As for Air Comiket this month, I think I’ve got some doujinshi in my list but those aren’t urgent so whatever, lol.
Interestingly my eroge purchase plan for next year is rather empty. There’s the last Argonauts nukige on March but that’s it so far for me. Oh and there’s that delayed Senkou no clarias but I don’t know if I’m getting it yet.
Not that I’m complaining because fewer new purchases means more time to clear my backlog (and less spending).
16.8% this week. That may seem like going down from last week but I bought some bond indexes and of course it’ll lower the overall percentage. Although the value of the bonds did go down a bit which is annoying. Over time it should slowly go up just like the other bonds. It’s meant as safety net after all. I think.
Overall, I managed to invest quite a lot more this year compared to last year. I hope I can at least invest the same amount next year. Or more!
