I definitely have a love/hate relationship with reds, mostly in that something inside me loathes buying red ink but when it arrives I usually end up loving it.  This purchase is no exception!

Ink of Naotora is one of two new Bungubox colors, the other being Omotesando Blue, which I reviewed a few days ago.


The ink comes in a standard black and gold Bungubox box.


In the Sailor bottle with miser plastic.  A funny story about that, I decided to take the miser plastic out of this one and while the extraction went fine I ended up somehow missing the trash and the miser fell to the floor splattering this ink everywhere making the room look like a crime scene lol.  Unfortunately no photos of that since we are moving and the place is already a mess!


I decided to ink up my Pilot Vanishing Point Raden, loving the small converter that is always willing to try new ink!

Lets just take a moment to admire the absolutely BEAUTIFUL sheen that this ink has.  It even comes out during normal writing.  The flow is great however the shading is only middling at best.  I guess you can’t have it all?  This is definitely a red that I would use again.  Its not overpowering and pulls brown tones.  It sort of has that whole blood looking quality, but with the sheen I can forgive that, but if blood sparkles does that mean its from a vampire?  Yes I was a Twilight fan back in the day dont judge me!

I  leave you now with this awesome photo of my pen squad yesterday ^_^
