Sailor Bung Box Omaezaki No Yu-Yake (Omaezaki Sunset)



lgsoltek

Recommended Posts

Another Yu-yake, another Sunset, from Bung Box (Sailor). I don't have Iroshizuku Yu-yake to compare it with, unfortunately.

 

Packaging

Standard Bung Box packaging. And a piece of paper explaining the name of the ink: the colour of sunset you will see in the coastal city of Omaezaki, neither red nor orange but a subtle colour.

Sample, Water-resistance, Dry time, and Comparison

(The scan makes the colours more vivid than in real life. It even makes Orange indien, the terribly under-saturated pale ink which I dislike, look so pretty.)

(The comparison with other inks is probably not very useful. I used toothpicks to draw the lines and they seem to be too wet and thus concealed the differences.)

Conclusion

The description of the ink is quite accurate. It's too red to be called an orange, and not red enough to be called a red. I think I can see some pinkish tone in it, as you might see in the "non-shading" part of the writings. All that makes Omaezaki a unique colour. I like this ink but it's not love yet.

Oh help. I missed this one. Darn you,

 

 

You didn't miss as much as you think. It's pretty, but I'm with lgsoltek, it's not one of my loves.

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

That is my PERFECT sunset red-orange. I like it even more than the Fuyu-gaki that until now had my heart.

Hmm close, but the pink ruins it for me,

 

I've got to get around to seeing what happens if I mix Autumn Oak with, say Oxblood or Red Dragon.

This looks great. Redder than Iroshizuku Yu-yake.

 

And a silly question. Are these bottles as poorly printed as they appear in photos?

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
