Since no one else has written a review, I went ahead and bought this ink to try out.

Unfortunately, this ink is not that waterproof as it describes. With not too much effort it will lift off the paper and blend with water. It's also not as dark as Kuretake's other black ink (http://www.jetpens.com/Kuretake-Manga-Pen-Ink-60-ml-Bottle-Black/pd/4735).An d if this is like any other sumi ink as it is described, I wouldn't put it into a nib fountain pen.

Other than that, it's still a decent black ink. But, if you're looking for something more waterproof and darker (technically, really only if you're nit-picky as myself), then I would get Kuretake's other manga ink.

I wanted to experiment with inks different from my usual Yasutomo Sumi Ink. This stuff is so incredibly smooth when used with pen nibs. I do most of my inking with a brush, and mistakenly used the same ink with nibs. Not anymore. Any nib work I do from now on will be with this ink.

Highly satisfied with this ink! I was using another brand that was bleeding on different papers and thought maybe my paper was bad but this stuff hasn't bled on anything(yet)! Works really well with Copics and I haven't seen any lifting yet. I love this ink!
