Although she will not become a central character in the tale, Utsusemi is memorable as the first woman Genji courts in the tale and whose courtship the readers actually witness and also, arguably, as the first to resist him (chapters 2,3,4; reenters the tale in chapter 16; is mentioned again in chapter 23).

Sailor Kingdom Note Limited Edition Tales of Genji Murasakinoue Top.jpg

 

 

セーラー×キングダムノート別注万年筆 源氏物語シリーズ 第七弾 紫の上
Murasaki no Ue
Limited to 35
Inks: 若紫、葡萄の小袿
Price: ¥42,120 including tax
Release date: April 2018
Material: Resin
Nib: 21k gold
Size: 150mm × 16mm (not including the clip)
Weight: 21g
Character Description: Lady Murasaki (Murasaki no Ue) – She is the daughter of Prince Hyōbu by a minor consort and related to Fujitsubo on her father’s side (Hyōbu is Fujitsubo’s brother, hence Murasaki is Fujitsubo’s niece). She makes her debut into the tale as a substitute for her unattainable aunt, but she gradually outshines Fujitsubo in Genji’s and the readers’ eyes, turning into “a substitute for all seasons.”[2]:160 In fact, her very name, “Murasaki” translated as “Lavender,” plays on the similarity of two colors (the color “murasaki” is purple of a darker hue than “fuji”, wisteria, of Fujitsubo’s name). Discovered by Genji in the Northern Hills when she is only ten, she is taken into his Nijō residence after the death of her grandmother (the episode of her kidnapping has definite violent undertones) where she is molded into Genji’s ideal woman, not unlike the myth of Galatea, with whom she is often compared.[8] She remains Genji’s most important lover throughout the tale, but, because of her imperfect social status (she is of royal blood on her father’s side, but her mother was a commoner), she can never be acknowledged as Genji’s main wife (kita no kata). For that reason, her position is perpetually insecure, especially when Genji’s attention shifts to other women including Akashi, Asagao, but most importantly, the Third Princess. Childless her entire life, Murasaki can only adopt Genji’s daughter by the Akashi Lady and raise her to become an empress. Towards the end of her life, she repeatedly expresses her desire to become a nun, but meets Genji’s resolute opposition. She becomes the victim of spirit possession in chapter 35 (the aggressor is once more identified as Rokujō, though this interpretation has been debated [5]) and dies in chapter 40 without having realized her wish. Murasaki as a character of the Genji has triggered much debate among scholars. Some see her as an utterly miserable character,[8] while others claim that her relationship with Genji is the best things that could have happened to a woman of Murasaki’s status. The beauty of this character resides precisely in its complexity. (Wikpedia)

Sailor Cocktail Series

The Cocktail Series (カクテルシリーズ) is a vibrant collection of fountain pens by Sailor, modelled after various alcoholic beverages. Sailor releases a new colour each year. The pens usually have a limit of 300 or less before 2017. In 2017, the Apres Ski had a limit of 800, while Tequila Sunrise from 2018 has a limit of 1000. The increase in availability demonstrates the extend of the series’ popularity. You can find the new releases for sale online at Nagasawa or Mitadepa. You may past releases on Kingdom Note or Yahoo! Auctions from time-to-time. A deputy service or a kind friend who lives in Japan is required if you wish to purchase these pens through the above vendors. You may find them on Ebay as well, but the pricing is often less competitive than Japanese vendors, even with the additional cost of a deputy service.

See below for a list of LE Cocktail series fountain pens Sailor had released as of August 25th, 2018.

Usagiya Limited Edition Sailor Fountain Pens

Usagiya (うさぎや) is a stationary retail chain located in Okayama prefecture. Usagiya had produced many popular LE Sailor fountain pens over the years, and they were often sold out within days. Buying from Usagiya as a foreigner is quite tough, as they do not support English, nor do they ship overseas. On top of that, Usagiya operates with a real-name system in order to reduce the amount of LE pens each person can buy, and they do not accept orders made over the phone. The best way of buying from Usagiya is to find a deputy service who lives in Okayama, or is willing to travel there. They also sometimes sell the LE pens on their Rakuten online store. See below for a list of LE Sailor fountain pens Usagiya had released as of October 30th, 2018.
