    Paints never available before that everyone's asking for finally here BUT GONE SOON

    Everyone's asking for studio ghibli paints because they make paintings like this to be produced in mass quantities possible.
    They're the best.

    Paints never available before that everyone's asking for finally here BUT GONE SOON

    It's available here.

    Better get hyped up because this may likely be your only chance in your lifetime to get them.
    Other people tried to get them only to be turned down by the post office since they don't allow transporting of paints across borders. THERE ARE NO OTHER PLACES TO GET THEM. This is chance is worth more than gold but costs less than an ipod.

    "For artists, it is essentially an opportunity more valuable than gold."

    "because they make paintings like this to be produced in mass quantities possible."

    Wow, I want that paint that does all the work for me!

    Funny how nothing in the offer says anything relevant about the actual paint quality. How is the lightfastness: do they last? What pigments have been used?

    If "watercolors, acrylics, acryla gouaches, gouaches, inks" cannot emulate Nicker Poster Color, then WHAT is Nicker Poster color? Is it oil paint?

    $115 for a set of paints without any crucial information? No way.

    From what I could find in a thread about watercolour artists, that fourleafclover also responded too, they are a mix of gouache and watercolour leaning towards gouache.

    I also think the price and claiming "They're the best" is over the top, feels like a sentiment of "Japanese people use it therefore it's better" even though it's actually just poster paint used in schools for it's cheapness.

    So it's not vast amounts of knowledge and decades of experience, it's paying too much for paint that makes them the best.

    Yeah, all that's been keeping everyone from making great art like Katzuo Oga are the paints. Now with these REAL paints it will be all different! It is all so clear now!

    What this guy said. Just having the gear will not make you an awesome artist. It's pretty much exploitation playing on people to part with their hard earned so they can paint images like Ghibli over night. Ridiculous.

    OTHER PEOPLE TRIED TO GET THEM ONLY TO BE TURNED DOWN BY THE POST OFFICE SINCE THEY DON'T ALLOW TRANSPORTING OF PAINTS ACROSS BORDERS... THERE ARE NO OTHER PLACES TO GET THEM!1111 probably means amazon.jp doesn't have international delivery
    (it has, btw, but you'll have to cope with interface or use a 3rd party delivery service.)

    I'm guilty of buying art supplies and pretending their quality or high price will help my abilities. Less is more- but we all forget that sometimes.

    I thought four leaf clover would have been banned by now? Clearly a spammer...with irrelevant posts in numerous threads the last couple weeks.
    What would Caravaggio do?
