In November 2016, Pentel Japan released a set of P205 pencils, lead and erasers that were apparently marketed to teens. There were 5 pencils, 3 lead containers (with Ain 0.5mm HB lead) and 3 block erasers with different bands around them. As of this blog post, you can still see the release on the Pentel Japan website (http://www.pentel.co.jp/special/7711/ ).
To me, this seemed to be strange marketing material. As far as I know, this was only released in Japan, but the pictures appear to be of Caucasian teens. I am not sure why they would not use Japanese teens to promote this.
I received my first set of pencils in January 2017, and they immediately went into my display cases. A couple of months later, I found some sets in a package and purchased them as well.
All of these pencils are the same except for the color and the sticker on them. They all read on the side “Automatic Pencil P200 0.5 P205”.
This pencil is Navy and the barcode is 4902506333957.
This pencil is Serenity Blue and the barcode is 4902506333988.
This pencil is Coral Pink and the barcode is 4902506333964.
This pencil is Baby Pink and the barcode is 4902506333971.
This pencil is Off-White and the barcode is 4902506333995.
EDIT 2019-12-07 – Updated the individual pictures. The old ones were hard to tell apart for the P2 & W.
