Title sums it up, but for more info I'm looking to start collecting these after having completed Kingdom Note, Pen-and-Message, SanKoDo, lines and most of Bung-Box's lines (still waiting on a couple seasonal inks to show up... looking at you Ebisgold)

#2 Hatoba Pier Blue, #17 Shioya Blue, #27 Kounan Maroon, #34 Sourakuen Tea Green, #39 Renga, and #58 Hyogo Canal Blue are my faves (I tend to favor blues, burgundies and maroons, and weird greens).

I only have some of the blue ones, but they are great.

 

I think these three are those I like best:

#37 Minatojima Island Blue

#38 Kitanosaka Night Blue

#51 Kano-cho Midnight Blue

 

However, #23 Nagata Blue is also a nice grey-ish blue with great shading.

I really like #31 Kalgan Stone Grey.  It is the closest to a true grey I've found - no green or blue undertones, just grey.  It may not be the most exciting ink out there, but I've been searching for a true grey for a while.  The shading is nice & it dries really fast.

I haven't tried many of them but just ordered a load of samples off ebay. Particularly looking forward to #8 Kuta Orange which is meant to sheen silver I think. I don't have enough orange generally.

Of the ones I bought, Marchaise Blue, Nunobiki Emerald and Cascade Green- they are all very similar shades.

I'm looking forward to some sheeny shady ones as the 3 above are nice, but a bit flat.

I used to have Minatogawa Lime and Suwayama Leaf green. I preferred the latter as Lime was a bit light and slightly dry if I remember correctly.
