About

The inspiration for this set comes from the water tribe in the animated series "The Legend of Korra" & "Avatar: the last Airbender". The colors worn by the water tribe and Avatar Korra are reflected in this keycap set. The novelties pay homage to both shows. The name Mizu is the kanji symbol for water 水.

So many keysets popping off lately but prioritizing this one above all.
I haven't even watched Avatar yet but the colors are lovely.
In for base+space+tuila mat!

Went in for everything (except only one of the rama caps), including both mats! These mats are a bargain at twice the price, let alone how good these two look. So money.

This will be my first GMK set that I get; already put in my order for the base kit and the second deskmat. Set's so fire; you'll easily hit MOQ on this one. Fantastic work Rensuya, and wish the best of luck with the GB!

This looks neat! Question about the Tuila desk mat. Looking at the higher quality images on the Dixie Mech page, the ripples surrounding the fish look a little choppy. Is this a rendering thing, or an intended stylistic choice?

Intended as water would not be perfectly straight it would be wavy/choppy

Yes, however shipping would probably be high

Really clean and sleek set, love how muted it is!

In addition, probably the best designed novelties and deskmats that I've seen in a long time!  :thumb:

So in order from top to bottom, the novelties are R1, R3, R4, R4. So the 水 is R4  ;D
