Oh, wow, extreme sheen.  You have been very busy with these reviews. Thank you!


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

I usually like these bricky, less shouty reds, but this one has so much shading that it gets a little busy on the page when trying to read big blocks of text written in it.

 

Which defeats the purpose of why I buy subtler shades of red like this.

Loving this red!  Especially if it is what people say that it's more orange-red than Oku-Yama's purple-red.  I've always liked Oku-Yama, but feel that it would be better if it was a more neutral-red.

 

Thanks for the review!  I have to say, you are one of my favourite ink reviewers.  There is something about your handwriting that makes it easy to appreciate the quality of the inks.  :notworthy1:

These images look a lot like Akane.  Cyber6, can you compare the two and let us know?

From the top of my head.. I will say this is more "purpluish" than Akane.   Akane has more orange, this has more pink..   But Yeah, I can compare.    I just need to get home.   :P

 

 

The sheen is very Akane'ish.    :wub:  :wub:

Not at all like Akane, except in sheen. Will try to post a comparison soon.


Naotora was inspired by the historical figure. The release of a Taiga drama may have prompted its creation but I think it is an ink made for their new boutique in Omotesando along with Omotesando Blue.
