Kokuyo Capara Mega Pencil Case - Dark Blue - KOKUYO F-VBF120-1
  So I finally gave in..., October 8, 2010
So I finally gave in and bought it. Channeling the common consensus, it's very cute. It 's like a hybrid between a makeup bag and a pencil case. Durability is a big bonus. And I especially dig the bottom compartment as I can hide miscellaneous items in there. I was always annoyed with rummaging my bag for a stapler, white-out, post-its... viola! Problem solved. Sturdy, compact, roomy, and pretty. And the color combination is a win. ;)

  First off, I am a girly-girl...., October 8, 2010
First off, I am a girly-girl. I love pastels and have a collection of mechanicals pencils in pastel tones so I never thought of buying one in black before. But I saw this in a stationery store and I was smitten. The color combination and the grip color was quite stunning. I was sitting in lecture yesterday and a GUY kept staring at my pencil- haha. I was debating if I should get an alpha-gel for over a year because I kept reading that the grip rips and I hate wasting $. But when I saw this in front my eyes, I couldn't help it. I bought one for the bf in blue-black and he still hasn't stopped fiddling with it. Our new daily pencils.

Two downs- I like a little weight on my instruments (Dr. Grip fangirl) and this feels a little too light for my liking. And it feels a pretty plastic-y all around. Hence 4 stars. But the lock system, colors, and the grip won me over. I'm praying the grip won't rip anytime soon and if it does.. I'll just steal my bf's. ;) Recommended.
