This was my go-to pen...
This was my go-to pen a month ago, when I got my first order of Japanese pens.
Superb ink flow, with no skipping or blotting. Very smooth writing, but with just the right amount of friction on the nib for great control. If it wasn't for the skinniest-barrel-ever, this pen would be a joy to write with for hours. Instead, using this pen makes my writing look a little sloppy and fatigues my hand too easily.
Also, now that I've tried the Signo DX (0.28 and 0.38), I've noticed some shortcomings. The line the Slicci puts down is the perfect width for me. Seems a lot wider than a Sarasa 0.3. Problem is, the line doesn't seem as sharp as the Signo DX's. I notice consistent imperfections and even (gasp!) slight feathering. It's not glaring, but it's definitely there.
Lastly, the ink level on this guy plunges after every use. Even for a gel-ink, the ink runs out fast.
This is still a good pen. It performs MUCH better than the refills for the multi-pen Slicci (I don't know what's wrong with those). When I get bored with the Signos, I could see myself coming back to try some colors.

This is, by far, my favorite...
This is, by far, my favorite in-class notebook pen.
The tip glides across the paper and makes fine, thin lines (which also highly compliment my tiny writing style).
I literally feel like I'm writing faster than normally when I'm using this pen, and I can say I'm extremely satisfied with this purchase.
Nothing much more to say besides individual remarks:
Grip - Just a basic texture plastic grip, but my fingers don't hurt after a while
Ink - Nice and black
Tip - Incredible

Nice pen, but taking...
Nice pen, but taking the sticker off was not a good idea. Use better adhesive.

My everyday notetaking...
My everyday notetaking pen. Consistent line thickness, fast drying speed, super smooth writing experience. 0.3mm is super thin, perfect for mathematics (small exponents with exponents with exponents with... ...with exponents.) I'm tempted to go even smaller, but I'm happy with the 0.3mm. I've had a great experience with all colors of this pen (except brown, but that's been discontinued), not just the black. The black is a nice dark black, and not scratchy. The barrel is very narrow, with a ridged grip. I prefer this type of narrow, rough grip but it may not be for everyone.
I use black, dark green, and royal blue more than any other colors, with beautiful results.

This is without a doubt...
This is without a doubt one of my favorite pens! I had all of the colors and used each of them til they ran out. The only problem I ever had was with the light blue color, which stopped working even though most of the ink was still left in it. The lines are crisp and perfect for spidery cursive notes and letters to friends. I love how thin the lines are :3
