For a non-pink person, I still like this color. Don't understand me at all!

I think it's pretty.  I'd have to see how light it was on the page to see if it was legible, though, and also maybe compare it to something like De Atramentis Apple Blossom.

It's strange that this ink is the most popular one among all 8 in China. It's the one that sells out the fastest. Maybe my taste is not typically east-asian...

 

It must be related to the same thing that makes "Hello Kitty" so popular there.  

 

And great review!  I agree it is meh!  And definitely not my color.

Eh, I really dislike this color. Although it's not as bad as most people describe. I just don't think the majority of us like these pastel colors, imo they just seem like very washed out colors to me.

Do you think this ink will fade quickly even in a closed journal?  C. S.

Well, I though - and in a sort hoped - that especially this pink would be nice, but I became somewhat sceptical after this thorough review. But now I have to ask you: Where do I find a nice and fresh and light pink?

How about one of the Kobes?  Like ... the Ooji Cherry, I think it's called?  #30?

Thank you for the suggestion! I'll have a look and perhaps try it out.

Another one from the old Four Seasons re-release.

Coming back to your Sakura-Mori-review, Lgsoltek, I would like to ask you: Which green ink did you use? I is it vert empire? I am still undecided in regard to this colour but I like your green ink. Or is it just because of the contrast to the pink? Or even the product of a 2-ink-combination?

I'm afraid I can't tell anymore. I checked my ink journal of that time but nothing comes close to it. One thing I'm sure of is that it's NOT Vert empire, which I don't have.

Thank you, dear Lgsoltek! ... in any case a charming combo - at least for my eyes!

If I had that piece of paper in front of me I might be able to tell what it is. But it's packed in a cardboard box 8000 kilometres from me!

I might buy a bottle of this at some point for painting. That color is the perfect color of the inside of a cherry blossom.

This one is not enough to start a new thread as it is just a little impression of Sakura-Mori which I prepared for the #30inks30dayschallenge over at the German PenExchange forum:

I usually dislike pink inks but I really enjoy this one's paleness and shading. In a fine or medium nib it can look quite special but will be far too pale for some.

Yeah, this ink is more a toy than a tool, but so soft & tender & interesting  :wub:
