Base kit will be around 80-90 dollars, and child kits will be between 20-40 dollars, closer to 20 for the numpad, and closer to 40 for the novelties. All @250 moq

I will simply post pics of samples when we get those instead of sharing colors now

The base kit is missing R3 PgUp, R4 PgDn for 65%/75% support.

The R1 -_ホー key is missing the sublegend (chōonpu) in the top right. Example:

Nice to see katakana subs for once. I personally would've inverted the mod and accent colors to make the set pop a bit more.

Also, if KKB would be up for it, a katakana-only alphas kit would be so fire on this.

this looks like a SXM set but actually good

numpad in base pls? kkb's pricing is already good enough, no need to make people chase child kits for basic keys

Howdy, sorry for the lack of updates.

Added Mekibo as a US vendor and added numpad to base, currently looking for regional vendors and a second round of samples. First round was a bit rough. :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

I LOVE the novelties but was just wondering what was the inspiration for the colours?

When I think of yokai, I think of more reds, maroons and blacks and even the beige/creams that were the backgrounds of traditional Japanese artwork that these yokai are depicted. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice blue. I just don't necessarily see the correlation with yokai

Bit of a selfish request, but I'd also love if you could duplicate some of the novelty artwork onto R1 keys so you can fill the print, scroll lock and pause with novelties.

I really think the oni should be definitely be an R1 key (so u can put it on esc) considering how iconic it is

a peaceful village hidden in the mist where yokais and erm...more yokais live in peace in a post-scarcity society, very appropriate for a calamitous disaster that would form the bombastic opening scene for your next shonen manga series

Probably not, theyre just ws1 so theyre probably not too hard to find around.

Ive always associated blues with a sort of spookiness which is the general vibe we were going for. If the novelties had more gore we probably wouldve gone with a red colorway.

Thinking about doing an R1 metal artisan with the Oni novelty.
