I love Kokuyo, it's all...

I love Kokuyo, it's all I use in college, however this one isn't what I had expected. So, the paper is still the same incredible paper, but the spiral portion is a little strange. The mechanism is a little silly at times where it won't open all the way, and then it's suppose to kind of snap back. The thing is, you can fold this notebook completely over like you would a normal notebook. What I mean is, the cover doesn't fold completely to the back of the notebook so you can write, you have to leave it open like a book to write in it. If you are cramped for space, another style might be more suitable. Because you've essentially doubled your space with this one...an alternative would be to pull the paper out in class to take notes, then put them back in after you get home or later after class. If you're pressed for time between classes, the last thing you want to do is fiddle with pages and the mechanism isn't as smooth as I would have liked to make that transition easier. All in all, these are fun and small, great portability, but they are going to be wider than a typical notebook because of the fold over issue. If you are looking for smaller paper and notebook, I recommend the same B5 paper with the ringed binder rather than the smart ring. I have them in A4 size and they're amazingly sturdy. Otherwise, these are smart, light, portable and cute! I use pilot frixion gel pens on the paper and it's great! Erases like a breeze!
This notebook is fantastic....

This notebook is fantastic. I loved it, however, I find myself using Kokuyo loose leaf because this paper is very thick and tall. My wrists hurt alot when I write, so this paper being very far off the surface of my desk makes it hurt my wrist for long periods of writing. So, I find myself not using it often. However, if this does not bother you, then it's the best of the best paper quality. Gorgeous quality paper. Paper is softer than kokyo lose leaf and it's lighter in color (pages and lines). The pages are super nice to flip and so soft. However, I had trouble finding a pen that i love using to write on it though. Felt tips were seen easier through it for some reason and my pencils had a weird lightness, even though I use 2B pencil lead. Still, find the right pen for this and man you'll love this notebook. It's just beautiful. I wish my wrists didn't hurt so much, other wise this book would be my best friend. Oh, it's heavy too, because the pages are beautiful. For me, currently, I've been using the G2 pens and they are really sharp on this paper. Just try it, you won't regret it.

There's nothing better than this paper. NOTHING. It's superb. Fantastic. I love felt tip pens, and this paper is so thick, it's hard to see colors through it that would bleed easily on white paper. I love the color, the thickness, the length!! Everything. It's slick and maybe takes some searching for the right pencil lead to glide on, but when you find it, OMG. Perfection. I love writing on this paper, i love re-reading notes on this paper because it's glorious. What a difference good paper makes when investing all that time to make nice notes. Plus the companion binders are fantastic as well. Just amazing product! WORTH every penny. You would squander the amount of space used in american white paper, but this paper will maximize your notes!!! You will have better notes than ever. I swear it. Try this paper!!

NOTHING is better than Kokuyo. It's expensive, YES, but the quality is amazing. I have three binders, because I couldn't get more colors at the time, but I'll buy two more in the Fall of this year. I bought the companion paper, loose leave 6mm, which is amazing as well. A4 is longer and higher quality than american standard paper. It's untouchable. These binders have held up for some time and they are thin and light to boot! Love them! i just wish we had dividers for these like the B5 sizes. Excellent binders for a high class load because they are sooo light!!
Soo much cuter in person!...

Soo much cuter in person! Bigger than expected too. You could hold a lot of cash rolled up in one and lots of change. If you only carried lipgloss and mascara, you could probably use it as a makeup bag. It's so darn cute, you should just get it, just because!! I wanted the new ones, but they're all sold out, so I decided on the tiger, and I'm glad I did because she's just the cutest!! Her ears have grooves to put your fingers in nice and comfortably. I love it.
Great idea, but the paper...

Great idea, but the paper is not as thick as the Kokuyo paper. I don't know if they're different brands, but this paper is thin. It's great as inserts in you kokuyo binders, but don't expect them to have the same thickness as kokuyo. I can use felt tip pens all day on my kokuyo paper, with no bleed at all, but this paper shows through. I don't mind it because it's a great accessory for class notes, but be aware that you'll have to write softer on these. Otherwise the size is great and they quality is great. You can buy note cards where you are and punch holes with the Carl hole punch, that's what I did before I got these. These are far more convenient though. Still they're a lot bigger than typical note cards too. They're also double sided! Which is great, because for regular note cards, usually one side is lined and the other is not. On these, both sides are lined. The colors are gorgeous too.

Cuter than cute! I use them for notes and day planner! They stick well, almost the whole body is sticky. They're thick too! The only draw back is that there isn't that many of them!! I need more!! They're so cute.There's also a black dino, which is kind of a waste for me unless I find a pen to write on it. Otherwise I'm using if as a book mark.

These aren't what I expected. They are not felt tips meant for writing on paper, for notes and planners. They are gorgeous, but they bleed badly. You can't use them on regular paper. However you can use them on virtually anything else. I use them for writing my name on objects like books and jackets. Nothing else. They're great if you need a permanent marker, but they're not not not regular felt tips for writing on notes or day planners.
SUPER!! The only thing...

SUPER!! The only thing I don't like is that it only holds 75 sheets or so, but the A4 sizes are longer than average sheets so it's ok. I still love them! Sturdy and functional. They don't hold a ton of paper, if you push it, the pages will get snagged as you turn them. But they are thin and easy to carry in a backpack, especially if you have a lot of classes. I re-write my class notes and stick them in this binder, best idea yet! I have two of them and I'm buying two more for lab!!
These pens are great!...

These pens are great! I am a felt tip lover and these fit the bill, for the most part. They are both hard, so if you write hard, they'll last a long time. However, don't write on rough surfaces with the fine tip, because it will chew up the pen tip. I ruined the black fine tip end because I was using it to make flash cards on white cards and it killed the tip. But the thick tip works fantastic for flash cards. I have kokuyo A4 paper and these pens don't bleed through, however the thick side can kinda show through, the thin sides don't at all. I love the colors and the shape, i love the dual tip at my fingertips! However, the black is not very dark when compared to Bic intensity felt tip....but I still love them! Great great!
