Here are some popular pen-nibs. If it is possible, I recommend you giving a try all of them and choice your favorite one. I use G-pen and Maru-pen
Most popper nib. Basically use to ink characters.

As G-pen, mainly it's use to ink characters. Harder touch than G-pen.

You can draw both thick and fine line.Basically it's use to draw fine lines, especially for shojyo manga.
