Tsuki-yo has to be my favorite. There's a town close to me called "Tsukiyono" and has the same kanji as the ink. It's pretty neat!

I have Chiku-rin and no love for it at all. I'm tempted to try Yama-Budo. Right now, I'm into blues, because I can use them with impunity at work.

Tsuki-yo and Fuyu-gaki.  I returned recently from Japan (Fukuoka) and bought these two bottles from Maruzen.  1500 yen plus tax for one.

My favorite changes from time to time, but right now it's ama-iro! It's such a lovely blue color. :)

I concur. I have all but five of these inks- and my favorite, the one I reach for again and again, is Ama-iro. It's such a happy blue, and it shades like crazy. I have had no problems with behavior on Japanese notebook paper, it dries in a reasonable length of time. It does well in my very wet brown pinstripe duofold with medium nib, and it is an excellent match for the blue pinstripes.

Syo-ro! Yama-budo is a close second.

Kon Peki and Tsuki Yo - mainly because I can bend the rules a little about using them at work, but they're still beautiful blues that have their own personalities.

I also like Yama Budo and Ama Iro.

Of the four flavors I have tried, I love Ama-Iro, it is simply one of my favorite inks. Followed by Yama-budo, which is my other half's favorite ink.

I have 15 bottles, so I guess I like a lot of the colors. :-) For sketching, my favorites are Asa-gao and Yama-guri. For writing, I love Yama-budo, Murasaki-shikibu and Kon-peki. I like to put Kiri-same and Fuyu-syogun in waterbrushes and "paint" shadows and cloudy skies. Glad you asked. ;-)

I have bottles of kon-peki, tsuki-yo, asa-gao, and yama-guri and samples of ajisai, yama-budo, momiji, fuyu-gaki, tsukushi, kiri-same, fuyu-shogun, shin-kai, ku-jaku and shin-ryoku. I've liked every color except for shin-kai and ajisai. The former was just boring and much more muted than the 3 popular blues, while ajisai is just too unsaturated for me.

Ina-Ho is something that should only be found in diapers of the young on apricot day... and most unfortunately named!

 

Never thought of it that way, I have to admit -- I myself love Ina-ho in my widest nibs :)  Yama-budo and Ku-jaku aren't bad either.

I have and use five. Take-Sumi is my go-to black, Asa-Gao a daily blue. But my favorite, by far, is Yama-Budo. Nothing like it. So special.

Take-Sumi.  Awesome black.

Asa-Gao.  A very lovely blue/violet.  Seems to be more vibrant/saturated in my Lamy 2000 EF than my Pelikan M605 EF.

Kon-Peki.  Love the shading and it's a great turquoise/sky blue.

 

I just received a bottle of Ama-Iro, so we'll see how this one stacks up.

 

I have a bottle of Shin-Kai, but didn't think it was too interesting in my Lamy 2000.  I'm going to give it another shot when my other Pelikan M605 arrives.

Momiji is my first choice, a funky kind of reddish hue to me. Tsutsuji for a wonderful hue of magenta. This so far as I have just been sent a PIF of nine of the colors, except Tsutsuji, so may change after I sample others. :cloud9:

I'm interested in Yama-guri, because I like the idea of a well-behaved, lightfast, moderately water resistant, and nicely dark brown.  If I wasn't already rather enthralled with Noodler's Blue ink, I'd be considering Tsuki-yo, Shin-kai and Kon-peki.  And if I wasn't already very pleased with Diamine Sherwood, I'd probably be considering Shin-Ryoku.  And if I ever decide I really need to have a teal, I will have to consider Syo-ro.

Shin-Kai is an excellent blue black, the shading is amazing when it dries. Take-Sumi is my go to black for most pens.
