Which set did you base your legends off of? That numrow seems plainer than some of the newer hiragana sets.

I'm not sure which set he based the legends off of, however Xerp has since taken care of the proper furigana/rubi.

Ah, thanks. I didn't go all the way through the discussion.

This set looks beautiful, but any chance for some 40s love? I really just need a 1.75 r2 cap, 1 or 2 1.25u r3 caps and maybe another 1.75u r4 cap to commit to it. Are those common?

Hey everyone, small incremental update here. Bigger updates to the main thread to come soon.

Artwork for novelties is well on the way to completion, the 1.5/1.25u, Enter, and one of the two styles of 1u R1 novelties are done.
I also received the Pantone chips for 7422C and 691C on Friday. Going forward I'll be sticking with 7422C and will update the rest of the IC tomorrow to reflect this. 691C is close but is a bit too grey. Also, I might bring the color of the mods up a shade or two but I'll determine that once I have daylight to work with.

If anyone has suggestions for services which can render the corrected hiragana legends please feel free to suggest them.

Here's an image of the chips side by side under ~5500K lighting. I did what I could to adjust the whitepoint in GIMP, but I'll take some better pictures tomorrow in the light of day. Picture was taken with a Galaxy Note 8. The 691C chip is a bit darker than this image suggests.

Ah, thanks. I didn't go all the way through the discussion.

This set will use the updated furigana/rubi legends, but I am still looking through options of render services which can reflect this properly.

I'll look into it -- unfortunately I don't have any 40% boards for reference material in person, and a separate 40s kit making MOQ is a concern with custom colors.

Thanks for the update. I agree on the color switch and I can't wait to check out novelties!

No problem! I've since updated the main post and added a preview for the novelty art.

These pantones give me a better idea of this. I really wanna love this, but sometimes the set reminds of valnetine's day :-\

40% keycap requirements (not including spacebars):

  • JD40, Daisy, AMJ40, many others: 1x 1.25u R3
  • JD45: 1x 1.25u R3
  • UT47: xx 1.25u R3
  • Pearl: 2x 1.5u R3
  • Minivan: 1x 1.25u R3, 1x 1.5u R3, 1x 1.75u R2

  • Minivan: 1x 1.25u R3, 1x 1.5u R3, 1x 1.75u R2

It seems that most of these are compatible with a single 1.25u R3, thanks for the info!

Rather significant update today:

  • New renders by Janglad!
  • Sneak preview of novelties in the HB-CP render
  • Considering the addition of a 40% compat kit
  • Now that I have renders, I'm going to be approaching vendors. Ideally, aiming for Q4 2019 or Q1 2020

Also, I've put together another, much shorter form regarding novelties and a couple other things; please fill it out if you're interested!

The renders convinced me. I'm in.

Any chance the potential all-in-one will be split into smaller parts? It's good to have one option for every layout but I fear for the cost.

These new renders and novelties look amazing. I was already in but I want this set even more now.

We'll see, once I have a vendor I'll be able to figure out pricing and from there figure out the kit structure as to potentially breaking off the numpad, etc.

I'm also really happy that the renders are being well-received, it was well worth the effort and cost.
