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.
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!
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 ^_^
