Probably about as clean as it gets  :thumb:

Hopefully the Hiragana mono kit will not be too expensive as sadly so many Hiragana kits have been lately.
The novelties are really interesting, first time I see anything like that.

-I don't know if the Spacebars kit is really necessary as there are no accent bars. And the base kit already has a 7u. Don't know if 6U are that popular and maybe people already have some white spacebars.
Maybe consider adding Alice support in base and removing the spacebars kit?

-Did you consider Japanese text on the mods, like GMK Masterpiece (but with hiragana/kanji like Kuro/Shiro). Or like what you are doing on the novelties with the text on the "side" of the keys.
Feels it could be interesting.

I'm in! With mods from GMK WoB, it'll make a close enough GMK Metaverse R3  :D

Made an account just to ask, would there be an international kit with hiraganas coming? This would be an insta-buy for me if there was.

Really a great looking set, love how cool ws2 is

Almost felt bad for missing GMK Bleached, but this is even better! Hiraganas on top on WS2 keycaps.

This set looks really nice!  The Japanese sublegends look thinner than normal... will this be all new molds?

Also can we get some renders of keyboards not cut in half?  It'd be nice to see the set on something that someone might use...

i'm really falling hard for this set, nice work! fwiw i also was having trouble looking at it on a mobile screen and had to get to a full size monitor so i could really look at it closely.

in my mind i started to put together a keyboard with the mono hirigana's and the novelties. then i realized i would need the base kit just for the mods and i started to think about the cost and i was a little less enthusiastic.

what stopped me cold was the thought of using latin mods on a 65 to cover "Home, Pg Up, Pg Dn and End" (plus any of the other 1u keys). am i just missing the 1u keys for R1, R2, R3 and R4? or are they not included? (it looks to me like the extension pack covers smol boards but not 60s to 75s.)

it would also be great to see a 1.75u key (nov or hirigana) to replace "Control".

i'm hoping i overlooked something or you'll take another look at the kitting. either way, great effort with your IC!



edit: please add "=" to numpad in base

thanks for the recommendation, but that novetly is already in use with GMK Sumi!

Those are the normal (V1) molds, so they're not thinner than usual.
Did justice to these needs with the new rev!

3u spacebar in either the red or the white would be greatly appreciated

The novelty mods are really cool, have been waiting for more people to use side print

Ah, dang, that's really nice. I like the geometric touch with the novelties, and the front-printing is subtle but sets it apart from other Japanese sets.

I feel like this should be a required purchase for any Tokyo60 ;)

Please consider changing key R3 "~#" to pipe key to better support basic ISO, the R4 pipe key can stay like it is right now or changed to R4 "<>" key to be more compatible with other ISO layouts.

I'm currently working on a NorDeUK Kit with Hiragana sublegends. This should take care of this specific problem!

What I mean is for ISO-US, the NorDeUK is for other ISO layouts. You base kit can cover at least ISO of USA aka terminal ISO or basic ISO. You only need to replace that R3 "~#" key to R3 pipe key and that's enough.

WS2 is love.

in without question, novelties too as they are super elegant, will mix and match with Bleached.

Damn you've done it again virtual. I'd like to see the extra B in the base and numpad seperate to keep the base price down.

International Kits with sublegends?
Ich küsse Deine Augen.
I was expecting this from Serika tbh.
Can you post some renders with ISO-DE and sublegends? (Only if it does not use too much of your time)

UNBELIEVABLE! WEEB NORDE! Junge, du machst mich glücklich!

Alright, I was on the fence, but I might be getting several bases and NorDe's now. This might make the perfect gift for my Japanese colleague - full Swedish and Hiragana - if I actually get the funding I applied for. So, so awesome!!! Make sure you market the hell out of this aspect and I would expect this is the first time in the last year that a NorDe set makes MOQ with a good margin before extras.

Danke, Joshua. Genial! <3
