Abstract
More
Yuru Camp is an anime I thoroughly enjoyed, and knowing my previous history of making 'weeb' GMK sets (see: GMK Noel), I thought it was only obvious to make a Yuru Camp themed one given the popularity (season 2 soon :p) and the vast oppurtunity for novelties. However, GMK Camping r2 (Camping in Japan) was already about to run at that time, and I didn't want to overlap that set by creating something uncannily similar. That and most of the colours from the show didn't appeal to me as being something that could be translated well into keycaps. That all changed when one day, when I was just at a uni event, one of my friends came in with a piece of merchandise: Shima Rin's scarf from the show! I loved the colours of it, and knew I had to make a set based on it.

Vendors
Group Buy will be available from September 1st to October 1st through the following vendors

Pricing
Prices are in USD through Cannon Keys; for all other vendors please refer to the official site link (https://gmkyuru.com/#vendors)

Colours
Please keep in mind that it is very difficult to capture colours on a semi-gloss coating, and as such, use these colour samples as a general guide on what to expect and not as a finite reference. Colours have been graded with a colourchecker.

The colours for the set include a rich burgundy for mods, mild cream for alphas and mod legends, and a light teal for accents as seen from the picture. This was initially colour-matched from the show as the physical scarf was too saturated, but was later adjusted slightly to better suit the set. WS2 was used on Accent Legends to provide better contrast and uniformity with the mods legends.

novelty arrows, 1.5u yuru camp mods, and enter would be greatly appreciated, however

If you want to go the UK route, it's missing an R4 <>, to replace the R4 |\
And maybe an AltGr?
And a red enter for the numpad would be nice too.

But other than that I like what I see, good looking set. Dunno if I'll be buying it as I'm trying to save up and calm down on keyboards related purchases but I like this!

If you want to go the UK route, it's missing an R4 <>, to replace the R4 |\

Actually, you got it the wrong way around: English (UK) requires R4 \|; R4 <> is for English (USA), terminal style (PC style uses R4 \| instead).

This kit, as it stands now, has correct(*) support for English (UK) alpha keys (it IS missing AltGr, but that's not an alpha).


(*) This is assuming the tertiary legends have been consciously omitted (something that I don't like, but it's generally accepted that it's up to the kit designer; in English (UK) the only affected keycaps are: R1 `¨¶ and R1 4$Ä).

I've always wondered why the right alt is AltGr in sets, what does the Gr stand for?

Considering the source of inspiration, the base kit should use Hiragana sub-legends as default.

as long as that red doesn't go any darker, I love it.  I would prefer something a bit closer to red than plum if anything.

Look where you wrote Yuru in the first photo.  That red is perfect.  but it's brighter than the red in the renders.  Maybe it's just a lighting thing.

"Alt Gr" stands for "Alternate Graphic", and indicates the key is used to produce characters in the tertiary and quaternary layers(*); this key is present in most of the extant national layouts (including several extended versions of English (USA) over ANSISO or ISO).

Also: yes, it was a staggeringly short-sighted decision from whoever at IBM that thought that placing just one AltGr key in the keyboard would be enough... and just as bad as using the right Alt key to this effect.



(*) Base and Shift are the primary and secondary layers.

novelty arrows, 1.5u yuru camp mods, and enter would be greatly appreciated, however

The novelties kit is already at 18 unique keys, so it's going to be relatively pricey compared to other sets so 1.5u yuru camp mods will most likely not make it as the majority of boards use 1.25u. Arrows I'd like to include, but coming up with something original separate to Campings arrows is something I've struggled with, especially with R1 being almost perfect personally. Enters will be considered, but again, would like something that ties the set well to justify increasing moulds.

My preference will be to have it as a separate kit as is. It may be a tough call to go one way or another, but will respect community feedback and designer's choice.

If there's interest in placing the hiragana sublegends in the base kit, I think a poll would be a good idea. I personally prefer the hiragana sublegends and don't need a spare set of alphas (if I were to buy both kits). But of course, I'd prioritize whichever option means costing the community as a whole less.  :thumb:

Hey, thanks for your interest on the set! As for plans on including hiragana sub-legends into base kit instead of add-on kit, even though I understand the set is based around a japanese anime and would be second nature to include, I have some bias towards latin legends over it. For one, I feel sub-legends somewhat detriment the aesthetics of the set as it makes alpha keys 'busy' having 2 legends on each key which I don't think balances well with the icon + bottom row text mods. By having something more minimal, I feel it conveys the sets themes of warmth and comfort in camping better, especially on white alphas where there is already enough contrast. Also, I believe that japanese sub-legends are somewhat overdone and saturated in the community, where it is added on the basis of a japanese-themed set. Additionally, people who might not be acquainted with the anime and/or japanese culture might buy the set because of the colours, which is something I have to respect.

Of course, this is only one person's opinion, and if there is an overwhelming majority of people who want to have it in base kit and/or people who are interested in buying both the base kit and sub-legends kit, I'll make it happen.

1. People complain about "busy-looking legends"
2. and complain
3. and complain
4. Then the GB starts and MOQ is reached wthin a week.

As I've said, I've chosen to go with Latin Alphas as I feel it works better for the nature of the set without external bias. Also, I don't think it's right to assume that base kits that have hiragana subs will be successful given many other factors that goes into it. However, if the majority are interested in both kits I'd be more than happy to change the set to include hiragana sub-legends into base kit.

Thank you for the reply. All the points you made absolutely makes sense especially the one about pulling in people not familiar with the anime. I'm still interested and look forward to it with whatever alphas the base kit includes.
Title: Re: [IC] GMK Yuru
Post by: ivu on Wed, 13 November 2019, 11:27:29
I also agree on the busy looks for kits including sublegends on the latin alphas.
For example, i'm really into the Red Samurai kit which is a must for me but i had to pass on the current "drop" just because i don't like the additional sublegends.
That's why i passed on it and will wait for the regular set with only latin alphas.
Title: Re: [IC] GMK Yuru
Post by: breckstar on Wed, 13 November 2019, 11:41:50
If there's so much bipolar audiences, then make both alphas their own separate kit relative to the mods/numpad/iso? Not sure if helps out on pricing but would appease those who want the opposite alpha from what's included in the base kit.

Until the community is big enough that multiple base kits can reliably hit MOQ, I'm okay with hiragana sublegend kits effectively being a weeb tax.

Loved the anime, and I think the colors look great. Can't wait.

Post by: Butterbeer on Thu, 14 November 2019, 00:52:52
All WEEBs must pay tax!

I love the hiragana sub-legends, but if we run this thing without Latin alphas in the base kit, then no tax will be paid. If no weeb tax is paid then Latin alphas will NOT hit MOQ.

Hey, glad you like it! I was planning to have more cyan novelties but a big part of the absence was due to the contrast issues I think it'd face. Cream on Burgundy is a much more legible than White on Teal (which is why I used WS1 instead of alpha's CP for accent legends to hopefully help with this), but most of the novelties I felt were out of place or weren't distinct enough with the latter colour option. However, I've added a tent and scooter icon for R1 to hopefully fill in that void as I felt they looked best out of all of those.

Is that the right maroon color in the renders? It looks very different from the RAL color you chose.
Yes, so the hexcode equivalent given by RAL is a lot brighter than it is on the RAL D2 Colour Deck, so that is probably why it looks different.

Deskmats designs will most likely be done in tandem with GMK Noel deskmats, so yes :D

So which one is more accurate? I can't afford a D2 fan deck.

I would have preferred CP for mod legends. The difference is quite jarring imo. But it's one of the better sets in IC right now! (I have also been thinking about making this exact colour combination and the same inspiration, cause i love the scarf!)

Mod Legends are in CP (which, for some reason, wasn't stated in OP so my apologies there). WS1 is only used for Accent Legends to provide better contrast and uniformity with Mod Legends

Update 2: More kit changes

- Addition of mod-coloured enter for numpad

- Removal for 'Super' keys in-place for custom triangle win-keys
(https://i.imgur.com/W6YhZze.png)

Please let me know if you like or dislike the new win-key change down below as it is going to affect everyone purchasing the set. If there is a strong dislike, I will consider removing it. However, I feel that it plays well with the theme and adds something unique and fitting to the set rather than the common Super, Code, or Meta windows key.

So, I really like all the 1u novelties. The scarf and "Yuru Camp" novelties are fun too. But I really don't agree with the choice to use a seemingly unimportant bag (even if it is from somewhere in the anime opening) and a bundle of rolled/packed up sleeping bags (I think?) for the bottom row 1.25u/1.5u novelties.

I think there are plenty of better/more recognizably Yuru Camp things that could be used instead of those while still being A) simple enough to create molds for and B) the correct aspect ratio for the 1.25u and 1.5u keycaps, such as:

I don't know if it's too late to change the novelties, but I would really appreciate your consideration of the alternative options I listed.

Sorry for all the wait! But yes, latin mono-legends will stay as with all my sets which I have detailed why earlier in the thread.

With the extra tab, you can actually cover 2 boards with a base + hiragana kit.
It can't be any 2 boards - there are limitations, but you can do it.

One would have to have split BS, the other would need normal BS.
One would need to have 7U bottom row, the other 6.25U bottom row.
One would need short right shift, the other full size.

I think that about covers it.

Abstract
Yuru Camp is an anime I thoroughly enjoyed, and knowing my previous history of making 'weeb' GMK sets (see: GMK Noel), I thought it was only obvious to make a Yuru Camp themed
one given the popularity (season 2 soon :p) and the vast oppurtunity for novelties. However, GMK Camping r2 (Camping in Japan) was already about to run at that time, and I didn't want to
overlap that set by creating something uncannily similar. That and most of the colours from the show didn't appeal to me as being something that could be translated well into keycaps.
That all changed when one day, when I was just at a uni event, one of my friends came in with a piece of merchandise:
Shima Rin's scarf from the show! I loved the colours of it, and knew I had to make a set based on it.

Show Image
(https://i.imgur.com/By04vIx.jpg)



Colours
The colours for the set include a rich burgundy for mods, mild cream for alphas and mod legends, and a light teal for accents as seen from the picture. This was initially
colour-matched from the show as the physical scarf was too saturated, but was later adjusted slightly to better suit the set.
WS1 was used on Accent Legends to provide better contrast and uniformity with the mods legends.

Update Post:
Due to the split nature of Latin and Hiragana Alphas in the Base Kit, I have decided to go ahead and release 2 Base Kits so that it becomes more accessible for everyone. The Novelties will be expensive due to the amount of moulds used, but I'm hoping with this change, it'll be cheaper for a majority as you don't need to purchase an additional kit. Thanks for all your support thus far, and I hope to bring more updates soon!

More updates are to come within the next few weeks, so please feel free to join the Discord Server (https://discord.gg/adRMMUS) so you don't miss on any news.

Hey! Thanks for expression interest for the set, means a lot to me!

Regarding more teal novelties, I answered a similar comment earlier in the IC about it.

Looks good. Any chance to have more cyan colored keys for the novelties? I feel its quite one-sided right now.

Hey, glad you like it! I was planning to have more cyan novelties but a big part of the absence was due to the contrast issues I think it'd face. Cream on Burgundy is a much more legible than White on Teal (which is why I used WS1 instead of alpha's CP for accent legends to hopefully help with this), but most of the novelties I felt were out of place or weren't distinct enough with the latter colour option. However, I've added a tent and scooter icon for R1 to hopefully fill in that void as I felt they looked best out of all of those.

Even though I've changed it from WS1 to WS2 to hopefully help with contrast, I still feel there would be contrast issues, especially with the more intricate novelties. That and it would ultimately add to the cost of the kit. Hope that answers your question!

Inject this entire set into me rn, love it so much and especially love the use of a triangle instead of super for the winkey

Not sure if its too late but was wondering if there was any chance of more teal colored novelties, especially for the scarf?

Hey! Thanks for expression interest for the set, means a lot to me!

Regarding more teal novelties, I answered a similar comment earlier in the IC about it.

Looks good. Any chance to have more cyan colored keys for the novelties? I feel its quite one-sided right now.

Hey, glad you like it! I was planning to have more cyan novelties but a big part of the absence was due to the contrast issues I think it'd face. Cream on Burgundy is a much more legible than White on Teal (which is why I used WS1 instead of alpha's CP for accent legends to hopefully help with this), but most of the novelties I felt were out of place or weren't distinct enough with the latter colour option. However, I've added a tent and scooter icon for R1 to hopefully fill in that void as I felt they looked best out of all of those.

Even though I've changed it from WS1 to WS2 to hopefully help with contrast, I still feel there would be contrast issues, especially with the more intricate novelties. That and it would ultimately add to the cost of the kit. Hope that answers your question!

Ah I see, that's understandable regarding the teal novelties

The nightscapes deskmat is genuinely jaw dropping though, I might buy a bunch just to give to all my stargazing/camping friends, amazing work agilr! Can't wait for the GB date!

I just recently heard about the quality control with GMK spacebars. Knowing this information are you going to making it a point to GMK that they should be QC'ing their spacebars before this groupbuy gets shipped?

Hey! Our vendors have already been contacted with these issues regarding some recent GMK spacebars warping, and are looking to address the issue through to GMK to hopefully get it fixed. Hope that helps!

I feel like the colors can be much better for this release. You say it's based off her signature scarf but the majority of the caps are dominated by the lesser colors that show up. It is also supposedly a Rin themed design but there's a rogue Chikuwa keycap which isn't related to the specified character. The emoji keycap set is also very plain considering the character it's supposed to convey. The scarf/beanie deskmat is pretty nice but the Fuji one is too dark considering how nearly all the key moments with Mt. Fuji involves bright lighting like a sunrise or a full moon. Honestly, I'm getting more and more disappointed with how this turned out as I type. It is a bright and colorful series but this release is, frankly, dark and muted.

Biggest troll comment of the year

Also, what do you even mean it uses "the lesser colors" of Rin's scarf? The actual scarf has four colors, and this set uses three of them.

Sorry for making it seem like I was trolling. The scarf has 2 lines of darker teal with one line of light blue. 3 blue tone colors but 80% of the keycap set is white and maroon. Hopefully that makes more sense.

I think the designers color choices are very classy and balanced. Many of other anime inspired sets have lots of bright colors and don't work as well. I think adding more colors would make it busy and not "Laid-Back."

No, I understood what you were saying. But I think it's funny that you said the set only uses the "lesser colors" from Rin's scarf when the set uses 3/4 of the colors from the actual scarf. Plus, the other stuff you were complaining about was just silly.

That's understandable. It's just not my cup of tea, I suppose. I just got the Megumin set a few months ago and I thought that was a great color/novelty set to represent the character. This one in comparison just doesn't have that cheerful/kirara vibe.
