, September 8, 2011
I bought these notebooks on a total whim and I love them! They are thin enough
to throw in a bag and take along and the paper is very nice compared to most
notebook paper available to in the States. I am no longer in school, but I can
see how these would be ideal. The dotted lines allow for you to line up text
easily, making whatever you write neat and organized. The lines are closer to
our version of college ruled paper. (Thumbs up! I hate wide ruled paper.) Some
people might not realize that they are not the fattest of notebooks, but I like
the size and the value (5 for $14 is an excellent deal) for the quality of paper

, January 28, 2012
I love the B5 form factor of these notebooks and the colors are great to keep
your classes/subjects organized, too. I'd prefer a gridded notebook but the dots
are a great alternative and come in handy when making diagrams that need
specific proportions. I'm in graduate school, so some of my classes are more
conceptual, and I think one notebook will suffice for the quarter (10 weeks),
but I'm reordering for my more notetaking-heavy courses like my math and
biotechnology course, for which 2 notebooks for the quarter should suffice. I
personally prefer a notebook over loose-leaf paper because I want everything in
one, pre-bound place, so if you're like me, I recommend these notebooks.
Otherwise, go for the loose-leaf version.
I use a Pilot Hi-Tec C Cavalier 0.3mm pen and Pentel Slicci 0.25mm pens and have
loved it. No scratching problems, and the paper is wonderfully smooth so these
tiny pens just flow.

, February 9, 2012
This paper has a very smooth feel that is great for taking notes and general
writing. It feels thin but holds up well to repeated erasing and does not show
through too much on the back. I have been using it for pencil and gel pen notes
and both slide nicely across the paper.
The papers are very well secured in the binding and even with much folding open
of the book they don't seem to budge at all. I am not sure what they actual did
with the binding, it appears to be glued in folded sheets, but it is hard to
see. Regardless, it is very secure. I will definitely be buying these again.

, October 17, 2011
Bought this last year and I love the pre-dotted lines. It helped me draw cleaner
lines for graphs. Really useful for math, chemistry, and physics classes. The
pages were thick enough so no bleeding through!

, April 25, 2014
I really like these notebooks. The size and the number of pages works well for
me. The quality of paper makes it so that I can write my notes in class with any
type of pen, from my uni sign dx to my lamy safari.
I'll be buying more of these, and probably other similar products from Kokuyo.

, October 31, 2013
Great notebooks. Even though they're really thin I get a lot of mileage out of
them. I've been able to use one notebook for two classes, even though it only
has 40 pages. Pens don't bleed through and pencils don't smudge nearly as much
as on a normal notebook of the same prince.
I honestly think that one of those 5 star notebooks that go for like $4 and one
of these will get you the same amount of space for notes. These notebooks make
my notes so much neater.

Nice smooth paper with unique dotted lines. Works very well with all of my
fountain pens. No bleed-through even with marker pens. The size is perfect for
writing notes at work, both in number of pages and page size.

, January 23, 2013
Nice paper that is fountain pen-friendly. The notebooks are quite small but
could be good for classes where few notes are taken. The binding lays very flat
when smoothed down, which I like. I feel like these are a bit overpriced for
what you ultimately get, though.

, October 29, 2012
These notebooks are kind of pricey but completely worth it. At first I was
afraid that my gel pens would bleed like crazy, I only write with Pilot G2 .38mm
pens so I can't speak for other pens, but it's a match made in heaven. I love
the asthetic and the quality is superb. generally you get 32 lines with college
rule paper and I am very impressed/pleased with 35. For someone like myself that
spends nearly every awaken hour with a notebook in hand I am glad that neither
of the two I've gone through since getting them have fallen apart. The cover
lay's relatively flat even after being folded back for hours so that's something
that I'm happy about too since Its a big selling point for me. All in all I have
no complaints other than the logo is not on the side but along the bottom but
that's not really a complaint these are just probably a newer model or
Anyway, if you are a writer or a student these are great notebooks that so far
seem to be very well made all the different colors are a great plus too. If you
get them I doubt you'll be dissapointed unless you don't like "almost" ghost

This is a great and economical way to try Kokuyo notebooks. The paper is light,
but very smooth, yet resists bleed-through. I mostly used Pilot V5 roller balls
in my books for notes in a class on financial regulations. The pre-dotted paper
makes it easy to indent handwriting for outlining. You can write on the covers
with permanent marker. The books are relatively small (to a person used to
8.5x11) and slender, so they are easily slipped into a bag or folder. I
recommend them, particularly for notes that you need to keep and review multiple
