Green and orange, both my faved colors. Will definitely get this sets. Nephl0ck, speaking of novelties, it will be great to have a row (f keys) of kaiju monsters icons. That will be so dope

This maaay be able to happen. As I stated above Iím hesitant only due to copyright issues, but I believe if I can keep them outside of being super specific it could work! Stay tuned!

Please do a Kobe kit. I know GMK Wavez didn't make it, but I think it's because it had nothing to do with the theme. This would be perfect and would allow for a reasonably priced ortho/40's kit with the abnormalities/warnings.

All kits will be made for Wavez including Kobe. But yeah, kobe will be a nice kit

Amazing work. Is there any chance you'd consider providing alphas without hiragana sublegends?

This set could use one more warning sign to fill out the bottom row mods. E.g. on a 65% board, I have 3 1.25u mods to the left of the Spacebar and 2 to the right. I would love to keep that bottom row in white+orange.

That reddish orange next to the Pantone chip is the backup RAL? I like that one way better anyway. The lighter orange feels "weak" compared to that excellent green, and might also have contrast issues against the white. The redder orange would be nice and bold.

Haha this was exactly my first thought when looking at the color samples too. Might be something to do with the relative sizing of the sample swatches? I think color matching is gonna be SUPER important for this one; if it's a bit off it could look garbage :p. But I trust Neph completely to do an awesome job and see us right :thumb:

For the kits, +1 for the Abnormalities kit. I love to see 40s support, and it should hit MOQ if this runs through Drop.

Also, I think a Kobe kit would be really appropriate for the theme (and just look awesome!), although I can understand if you want to keep the number of kits smallish, especially as alternative alpha kits often don't do too well.

I just spent some 10-15 mins playing around with a 65% layout...

219792-0

Since this was just a quick draft on an idea, it's not fully formed, but I was generally thinking of a white top and bottom row, with orange accent keys. These ideas are born from the lovely symmetry of the HHKB layout, which doesn't work as well on a 65%/75%/TKL in my eyes.

Anyway, perhaps this will give you some more inspiration which will in turn give us more renders, but I am extremely interested in an all-white or all-orange (with accent keys in either colour) bottom row.

Edit: Please don't make me switch to HHKB. 😁

BIG fan of this set. Not my normal style as I generally prefer more low-key stuff, but this is just so well thought through!

I understand this is a big ask, but any chance of getting a modifiers-only set? I reckon forest green would match so many other sets so nicely.

Since I'm new to the scene (where my opinion has no weight), and I'm sure that the design for this set is already made, but it's just so hard to look at this without thinking that the alphas would balance the brightness, if they were a tinge more grey.  Like watching the Miami Hurricanes on a keyset or pair of sneakers can be an eyesore IMO.

I think you should make the monsters and novelties with just a bit more cuteness... adds quirkyness to the keyboard. But overall it looks awesome.

Totally fine, live in CONUS so shouldn't be an issue. Probably cheaper anyways than if I could have bought from kbdfans at the time anyways (Archetype artisan was $15 in shipping(!))

Super excited for my metroplois set and if this runs I will for sure going in on it. Just curious, you have a rounded font on all the legends on these and I was curious if you were going to use custom legends for every key? Or are those placeholders for the standard cherry ones that GMK uses by default. Also all the keys on the diagram have a size of 1.25u when I am pretty sure some of them should be 2.25u or 1.75u.

This set is going to look super cool on my Tokyo 60 and it will be fun to have a Godzilla set on a Tokyo board.

Yeah itís a close approximation legend for placeholder. Good catch! They will be standard GMK legends.

Also good catch on the sizes. Youíre correct! I have to type those in manually and must have missed a few! Iíve got an update coming soon so Iíll make sure they get fixed!

They have a set, yeah. This set will utilize the same sublegends as Serika, which differ slightly. The only custom shots would be the novelties :)

So any word on an ortho/ergo kit?

The clear big brain play here would be to get Kaiju and one of those EVa inspired kits and put them on opposite sides of a split keyboard.
All memes aside, this set looks incredible and I really hope it hits MOQ.

Good thing that you are going with the "complete" Serika-style hiragana sublegends.

I don't always like hiragana sublegends, but I am putting this set on my list.
The novelties are a great match to the base set. No novelties, no Kaiju  :thumb:
