An ink from Colorverse's Season 3 ‘Multiverse’. Pair with Cat shimmer (or ‘glistening’) ink as a retail package. Colour: A lively and cheerful green; stays bright and vivid after drying. Flow and lubrication: [revised] Relatively wet. My usually dry-writing Sailor Fude de Mannen pen write more smoothly with this ink than I expected; and, when I transferred the half-full converter into a new F-nibbed Sailor HiAce Neo — not a model that tends to write wetly or too smoothly out-of-the-box, in my experience — the ~0.2mm-wide lines come out wetter and darker than shown in this review, and wet enough to be a problem writing Chinese ideograms quickly in 5mm-squared space, in spite of the narrowness of the lines, because of how commonly lines intersect and criss-cross, causing pooling of the still-fluid ink on the page from earlier pen strokes. (I haven't timed it yet, but I hate to think how long those lines would take to dry!) Feathering: Not observed on Rhodia Dotpad 80g/m² paper. Show-through: Not observed on Rhodia Dotpad 80g/m² paper. Bleed-through: Not observed on Rhodia Dotpad 80g/m² paper. Drying time: Relatively slow, taking more than 30 seconds on Rhodia Dotpad 80g/m² paper. Water resistance: Low. Shading: Choppy shading along fine or broader lines, but not much that can be easily seen in extra fine lines. Sheen: Not observed on Rhodia Dotpad 80g/m² paper. My verdict: I like the colour a lot. The chromatography is pretty. It's not a Noodler's Ink. That's about all the good things I can think of to say about it, considering that I'm sure there is some Diamine ink colour (or half a dozen) that looks like this and behaves equally well, for about a quarter of the asking price (on a per-millilitre basis).
