Because the top and front legends would be the same

Indeed we're hoping to launch the GB by the end of the year. Kbdfans told me that they don't want to schedule another GB without having some of the previous GB out; just in case of issues. To not reproduce the drama with Keyreative that happened lately.

Side note: I'm waiting for all the new renders for the kit i provided earlier in the thread. Will update once i got those.

Thanks for you support on this project  :thumb:

In fact I'm glad to hear this. Most of EPBT caps we have now are just 1-sided dye-sub caps (and they still have some minor issues), so I'm also worring about the quality of 5-sided dye-sub caps they almost never made. Now I feel relaxed when knowing that they are making new molds for them! I bought some Be the One kits earlier this year and wanted to know how well thay can make for 5-sided dye-sub caps. It's actually a wise choice to delay the new GBs, all we need to do is just be a little patient ;)

Tracking for a long time for this set. Can I have some suggestions for it? I recently found that if I want to make a full kana combo like the last 2 renders on the first page, I have to buy the full Base Kit only to get those two commonly used spacebars, it is…kind of not worth it for those people who have the same thought like me. It is also a little awkward to use the remaining keycaps of the Base Kit on a new board. So adding GMK CC color 6.25u and 7u spacebars to the Space Bars Kit may be a good choice.

The second is that can we have a R1 1u Backspace in this set? I can find the option in the past ePBT sets. In both Base and Text would be good.
Just two small suggestions, thanks again for doing the revival of this amazing keycap set! :thumb:

As i shared in the thread the 7u and 6.25u spacebars have been added to the alternate alpha kit. So you ll be able to do this.

Thoughts on making the legends match the source material better? The positions of the alpha characters could be shifted, and the size of the Japanese modifiers enlarged.

Green has been chosen this way to be still visible in low light. This is up to change when i'll have prototypes if it's not good looking.

Regarding OG colorway this is not the goal of this run. I'd be down to do another run if this one is succesfull with OG colorway.

That's only partway true. EPBT has an MOQ for the base kit (usually 200), whereas they will produce the other kits regardless of quantity sold, as long as the base kit makes MOQ (at least that's how it's worked up to this point).

I'm super interested in this set.

Even tho at first glance it might look a bit clutter I think that it's compensated by the color choice.

Accent enter addition in 40 kit would need addition of 5 keys. So i'm sorry but no

A bit disappointing there are no 40s accents considering ePBT can make those more reasonably priced than other manus and the add-on kits don't have to meet MOQ (as far as I know). Maybe others don't mind as much though
