truth, sucks to see sets like monarch show mono hiragana in their title renders and then not offer it. This set will be a serious let down without mono alt latin alphas

sublegends are sh!t
people chose sub over mono are cun.ts and can **** off
Buyers prefer Latin Alphas. In order to preserve the weeb theme, sublegends are the safest choice.

or here is a crazy idea; normies can have their ****ty latin (mono or with sublegends) in the base, and add an alt alphas kit which is mono anything but latin

also @Lil maybe this set would do better as pbt (ie not gmk), there would be more kitting options and maybe more people would be interested if it was cheaper. i ****ing hate gmk, shiny ass overpriced garbage which cucks non-normie layouts.
imo this set would do well with somthing which doesnt rely on a "base kit" ie you chose an alphas kit and a mods kit separately. this way you cant alienate one group of people by trying to be true to the aesthetic in the base kit because there is no base kit.

You can't colour match that well with Pbt, also manus like ePbt has been bad in terms of quality and pricing. Gmk produce some of the best colours for keysets and their pricing has been fairly consistent throughout the years. For "non-normie" layouts you are always going to pay more, just look at some of the 40% kits running now.

IMO, this set is gorgeous as it is, it just needs more advertisement and better timing.

P.S. Shine is good, embrace the shine, dude.

From Lil:

A note on pricing:
Following deciding kit pricing in November, the dollar has fallen from .85 to .81 to the euro, which effectively means a loss of 6 euros per basekit on the old pricing versus then.
For this reason we were forced to increase US pricing in order to maintain the price in euros, which is the currency that GMK invoices us in for production; to avoid making a loss per kit at the current moq of 250.

I wonder if there could be another solution to this problem. At the moment the conversion rate from USD to Euro is $0.83... I'm not an expert but the rate is only likely to climb above $1 USD to (>$0.85) Euro if global markets begin to anticipate a recovery from the pandemic. We could expect an update by then. Not to mention, the recent Suez Canal... incident. I didn't want to bump this thread since the GB is currently postponed but I wanted to share my two cents. Hopefully there are others who would like to see this set come back to market just as much as I do.
