My question was going to be "How does this compare with Cult Pens Deep Dark Orange?" but I see you've answered that question.  :)

Normally orange is not a color I go for.  This one might be different....

Thanks for the review -- and, well, not....

I just popped into this review thread to say that these inks have now been issued and are readily available from Diamine and other retailers.  :)

Thanks for this review. Looks like a good choice of Diamine (the fruit they picked...).

Thank you for the review. I've ordered this ink. It will be here tomorrow. So far I've been disappointed with Rykua cha that arrived today. I won't be with this one. Thank you.
