UPDATE:

We got quotes from GMK and The two new added legend will become part of the general GMK keys so we only have to pay a portion of the manufacturing cost

About splitting the base kit into alphas and modifiers, that would bring the manufacturing cost alone up by 20%. So I think we should stick with the original base kit

Currently talking with the vendor and hopefully can get the GB running soon-ish ;)

It was mentioned a few times in this thread before, but have you thought about making those 2.25u and 2.75u spacebars convex? I can't really imagine anyone not preferring them that way.

I have been putting off buying GMK WoB because of this set so I hope it is going to run in the next couple of months.

if the point is to reduce kit sizes to be minimal as possible, then why are you supporting ISO and 6u and offcenter 6u in base?

4 ISO keys cost 2.5 eur.

If there is a 20% price increase in splitting the kits, it's not much, maybe it's worth considering. Standard alphas, with arial font, cost 50 EUR, absolutely not more that that. I don't know if japanese legends are more expensive than arial ones.

Do not split. Make the 2.25 and 2.75 space bars in the small kit convex, they have the moulds.

Agree with Remsky in that offcenter 6u is a little silly but the current ISO support is pretty nice, I'd keep that.

Too expensive. New molds often are even on large production sets(like carbon or lazer). This is meant to be a simple cheaper set

Since the molds are available, can't you write ALT as ちりか?

In term of aesthetics, it looks better for japanese only alphas to match the icon only modifiers. Each key has a single legend. It looks simple this way. It will be too busy for the alphas to have both text, japanese legends, however the modifiers keys only have icons.

Since there are several english/japanese alphas keysets, e.g., laser, red samurai, serika, ebpt black japanese, and many more are coming, e.g. striker, etc, but just a few ones with only japanese, e.g. laser kobe, samurai pure Hiragana. I think it makes sense for OP to make this set alpha with japanese only so that it's more special.

As a side effect of only japanese characters playing the role of legends, it becomes some kind of novelties legends for users who don't know/speak japanese. Some colemak/dvorak fans would be happy to buy it too.

Can three of the existing japanese legends fit in a single 1.25 u key? For example on the ALT key.

This layout is gibberish.  ちりか = hiragana keys corresponding to "ALT"  The rest of the mod keys are same.
One above isn't standard layout either.

We should stick with the current icon design.  I don't want layout with broken Japanese on it.  :p

This is a very cool set. At first I was like "why no dual legends? wheres the numbers?!?" but now I am into the look and could probably get over the lack of legends usability wise. The single legends and icon mods give it a flare compared to what we usually see with GMK.

Where are you getting those numbers from? Are you getting these numbers from gmk themself or by lookin at previous sets?

That’s not the point. The lack of communication on any progress you think is being made is the problem.
