why does the render make the keycaps look so metallic? It doesn’t look like the material is plastic.

I was referred by someone to keycaprenders.com to get images but it has issues with, as you've said, a metallic finish on the keycaps. I'll try to get better renders if possible from Kingk22

i feel like ive seen a set that looks just like this, maybe slightly darker colors
Are you referring to GMK Bento? Initially when picking colours I thought so too, but this blue and pink (which is red in bento) is a lot lighter and honestly gives a much different feel from the muted look of bento.

The contrast would be quite worrisome on this one
Do you mean contrast of alpha legends colour? The blue is similar to ePBT Fuyu so I'm hoping that won't be the case once I get better renders and fine-tune colours with Pantone chips.

That is my thought as well.....

I think the render can take a bit reflection off. It feels pretty metallic for some reason....  :D
It's a bit hard to see the actual color.

I'm asking Kingk22 if he can make renders within the coming days. It does appear to be lighter than the actual colours (as well as the metallic finish) so hopefully that will be sorted soon.

As requested, I've updated Alpha & Mod Legends to a darker blue (same colour as Noel's boots) to increase legibility and contrast. Renders are still crap though so aim to have good ones out by Friday for Base Kit and on a Rama board.

I’m thinking more of Shoko than Bento.
Once a set shines, it is truly yours. It is then your job to nurture it and care for it.
Love it until it blossoms into the beautiful fully and evenly shined set it has always wanted to be since it saw a shined set on Instagram under the hashtag #perfection.
Support it and maintain it until it will grow into itself and become one with itself. Then you can truly enjoy the typing experience
Sincerely,

pretty sure bento alphas are closer to white than beige. just drawing a comparison between the 2 sets.

I own a Bento set (although I've yet to put it on anything) and I think it looks great, but this looks even better to me with its lighter and more muted colors.

The hiragana set looks very nice as I was hoping for one. I'm sure there's a purpose to the dashed squares on the { } keys that I'm simply unaware of, but I think it makes the key appear a little bit cluttered and it lacks balance with the other keys which put text in the bottom right. Another idea that comes to mind could be having katakana and/or kanji alternates for the modifiers. Otherwise, I love this set and I'm in if it ends up looking like this.

Before I start, I'd just like to say I appreciate you taking the extra effort to offer feedback on the set. It really means a lot to me!

As for your feedback, I do agree that the dashed squares on the set do clutter the keys a bit and contrasts compared to other keys. They're supposed to be placeholders for hiragana keys on Dakuten ( ゙ ) and Handakuten ( ゚ )  signs used to modify them, which similar legends can be found on something like GMK Metaverse. However, GMK Bento's implementation of just the symbol on the bottom right is much cleaner, so I'll be more than glad to change them.

As for Katakana and/or Kanji Mods (something like ePBT SimpleJa comes to mind), although it'd be great to have variety, I'm unaware that GMK has the moulds for mods with legends like those. Either new moulds will have to be created (which will increase price significantly) or they will have to be Dye-Subbed, which although cheaper, is something I'd rather spend time with novelties on as I honestly don't like the aesthetic of Japanese Mods in the first place and feel it just clutters it.

Hope that helps!

Ah, you're right about those symbols. I should have thought to look and compare! I understand a little Japanese, but I'm used to only looking at Latin keyboards so the characters occupying those keys don't stick in my head as well. I completely understand the bit about the mods. Honestly, the set as-is plus hiragana keys as an option is more than enough for me, so anything else is just a bonus.

Looks great to me! Any plans for a spacebar kit?
Hiragana mono kit please?

I'm planning to hold a Google Form to finalise kits and see if there's anything that needs to be added after I finish colour-matching with RAL decks. If there is enough interest, I'll be sure to add both a spacebar and hiragana mono kit.

Update 3: Updated all renders for better lighting (still need to change dakuten and handakuten legends), and added Bow Novelty R1 Key as part of Novelty Kit.

Colour Matching will be delayed until Monday as difficulties with delivery have left it being delivered to the next business day (which is Monday for me). Hope to get RAL colours ASAP! (Will be using RAL Design Colours)
Got it just as I was leaving, hoping to colour match by TODAY

Update 3.5: Colour matching is done. Lighter blue is darker and pink slightly less saturated in pictures than IRL but hoping to get some better pictures of it tomorrow Done. Also, the Interest Check Form is now up to get an idea on additional kits that may be added. Hope you can spare a few minutes for it! <3

After colour matching, it has come to my attention that current renders were displaying pink far more saturated then what I had planned, so please take a look at the new renders for more accurate colours (now matched to RAL colours)

As a result, pink is now lighter and muted and darker blue is slightly more vibrant to further increase legibility.
