Love, Love, Love. Japanese...

Love, Love, Love.

Japanese fine-point pens will be the death of me, but it will be a beautiful ending to my life. I first encountered the Pilot Juice series at work (I am an instructor at a tutoring center), when our lovely boss gave us new correcting pens. I fell in love with the neatness and super-fine points of these babies, not to mention that they write wonderfully (no skipping!!!). They may use gel ink, but the dry time is pretty fast given that they're extra fine; I've never had any issues with smudging. If you are an artist, they're perfect for quick sketches! The color also builds up, so you can create many layers of color with just one pen. I ended up buying five of them from JetPens. Here's a tip for purchasing some of your own:

Individual pens and pen sets have the same price per pen. If you like to choose your colors, I recommend picking your own favorites and just buying them separately. If you like pen sets, then choose the pen sets. I personally only chose the colors I really wanted at the beginning, but I will most likely buy some more soon. Also, as I did buy individual pens, you'll see this review on a select few colors on this site.

Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys fine-point pens.

So cheap and beautiful~! I want to buy one in very color and the ink flows so well and so thinly. I love it!

UPDATE: Won't write anymore!!!!! I think this pen is just not good in the .38mm size. I have two .5 pilot juices that work very well, but this one does not!! I've been using it for a month without any problems, but suddenly it just quit working mid sentence. Super disappointed!!! I used it again several hours later, and it started off fine, but after less than a paragraph of writing, no ink came out!!!there was plenty of ink in the pen itself, but none of it came out of the tip!!! This happens every time I use it, which just sucks.
It is a bit scratchy...

It is a bit scratchy to write with, and a bit to fine for me, considering the color, I wish I went with the .5. I think the grape color would come out better and more luscious if it was a broader tip. The color didn't look as good as in the picture, but it is still a pretty pen to use.

Color saturation of ink...

Color saturation of ink is good but this pen is not comfortable to my hand. Still for the price, its a good deal.
