So I caved and I got the Deresute limited SSR pack. It’s not of any of my best girls like you’d expect, no
Kaleidosnow Mio Honda, one of last year’s limited Christmas SSRs. Normally I’d have gone with someone else, but she has a story to her.
Last year, I got her in a solo pull. I was in the airport headed back home to Mass for my birthday and Thanksgiving and all, and actually she came home about 5 minutes before I had to board. Weird shit huh. But, the whole time I was home I remember grinding events with that card in particular, and for some reason having it made me elated. It brought back good memories every time I saw her, really a sort of time capsule for a good time in my life. Since I was gone from home for 2 years now, it was a way for me to remember my roots in a positive way.
I lost the account she was on.
I gave up for a while… A few months, maybe? I just didn’t see a point, the time (and not to mention money, dear lord) I spent on it to just restart. It was miserable, I’m not gonna lie. I was in denial to lose my account of 2 years.
And yet, I bought another account off of a friend. December last year I did. She wasn’t on there, I didn’t have a way to get her since she comes around for a few days a year in November/December. I had to wait, and probably not get her anyways.
That is, until Deresute pulls a pack out where you can choose ANY SSR (except the cursed onsen set) whether limited or not, and get a deal with it. I wrestled mentally for a long, long time with this. Around 3 weeks. And since it all ended October 1st… I took the plunge and got her. I figured working at the convention without treating myself is pretty much a crime against my mental health.
Sure it may seem dumb to people who aren’t invested in these types of games, “it’s just a jpg of an anime girl, it’s just a 3D model, etc etc” but. For me I get so sentimentally attached to things like that and anime figures that I felt it would help lift my spirits.
And it did. I’m glad she came home. It feels like a burden was lifted from me, the awful experience of losing an account like that that has so many memories. And I can now finally feel 90% whole again (until Syoko comes home come on girl)
This was long and sappy but yeah, thanks Deresute. You may rob me but now I have a lot of happiness back from something as mundane as that.

Happy New Year.Thank you again this year.
On January 1, I went to a small shrine in Hatsumoude (visit to a shrine for the first time in a year).
I prayed for the further growth of Triad Primus and the expectation that Nao's leading role Triad Primus new song will be released soon.
More than 10 days of idol hell with no respite since the last days of 2018 with the New Year's countdown and Live Groove the next day were really the peak of idol hell. Finally a relief after the live groove ended so my cinderellas could rest.
Meanwhile the gacha pulls especially post cinfes is not doing good from the free pulls but got a decent haul of 7 SSRs including cinfes Yui. Those blue envelopes with no SSRs are insane.
I already started saving jewels for sparking which I was thinking about wedding Minami or Rin or limited Karen or Anya but still have to wait for the kuji draws to see how many jewels and tickets I'm going to get so wish me luck.

I already expected the rest of my free pulls are going to be scam blue envelopes that only contain SRs but was given a different type of folder on the last free pull which is the other blue with the white decor. She may not be Kaede but instead, it's the girl who shares the same first name as that tofu delivery boy and has the latest card that is running in the 90s.
I'm sorry Kaede that I couldn't bring you home even though I have your perm SSR and tried to get you. Still a close call on Takumi that made me play eurobeat music from Initial D and some [email protected] eurobeat remixes after she came home.
I've changed my mind from a decent haul to a good haul regarding the free pulls.
