Love the effort behind this set, but come on... another blue set? This isn't more-so directed to you OP, as the effort behind this is obviously there, and there is thought behind it, but I am sick of the constant IC posts themed after Shoko. Its just too much at this point. People gotta tone it down a little with these constant baby blue themed keyset posts. Its like every other week another one pops up.

I asked the designer if I can send him some suggestions on the ortho kit and I'm in talks with him now. He's at least aware

I don't normally reach out with feedback like this, but I really like this set.


Here are some changes I would like to suggest to the base:



For the novelties have you considered a couple of text novelties like "smash" & "go beyond"? Also, the smile or ears on his mask would be cool I think as a novelty. As for the current ones I like them but would suggest centering the "Plus Ultras" a bit more.

Including a spacebar kit might be good for those who use them.

If you're considering a deskmat then one with his lightning all over as a sort of pattern would be cool.

I hope this helps and best of luck  :thumb:


EDIT: I would like to suggest a single or pair of 1.5U Super keys for R4

Besides my usual complaints about keycap omissions on the base kit, I'll take the unusual step of commenting on a couple of the novelties.

As a Spaniard, I am legally required to like the "Plus Ultra" motto, but... I think it doesn't look good in the (renders of the) keycaps; I'm not sure that font works at all (even with some other word or phrase). And that, mixed with the crosses of Burgundy and the God-I-hope-those-aren't-stylized-eagles... gives me a VERY weird vibe (at least to me, as I don't know the source Animé/manga but I DO know what those symbols mean elsewhere).

Love this set idea and colorwave, only real compliant is I that I would really like there to be 2 of each of the novelty keys in both colors for more symmetrical builds in a set that uses novelties.

(If this doesn't make sense basically I want 2 x keycaps in blue and 2 more in white and the same for every other key that could fit on the bottom row)

IMO the sublegends on the numpads should stay as it fits goes in better with the Hiragana sublegends on the alphas.

Ahh i'm sorry for not telling haha! The kanji on the 1u keycaps mean "hero" and on the shift the all might quote " you can become a hero ".

Thanks for adding the spacebar kit. One suggestion: it'd probably look better if those two white bars (mod-colored), were actually red instead (accent-colored).

I'm a huge fan of the manga/anime, this is a must cop for me.

A complete 40's/ortho kit would be a must for me, big 40's user here.
Mono hiragana kit would also be a insta cop for me, given the source material.

Extra B for split users?

And would also agree with Rensuya's suggestions to the base kit, those would look really good with this kit.

I like the idea and enjoy the theme but personally, I think the renders seem a bit ...off? It seems like it looks too blue/teal rather than green. Maybe a little bit darker if you're trying to color match the outfit.

a second B in the latin/english alphas would be great, also if you're going to include 40s keys inside of base kit please add a 1.25 tab and a 1.75 enter so its compat with most staggered 40s

Hey, I think your set is pretty cool but I thought there were a couple of things that could be improved on before Group Buy with your updated kits. I'm just one person though, so if you disagree, it's all good!
  • Some of the novelties appear too intricate to be doubleshot moulded, in particular the teeth, fist, and eyebrows so consider using thicker lines or simpler shapes (rough estimate would be at least 0.3mm in thickness on the keycap)
  • If you are solely targeting ortho users in base kit, at least add 2 x 1u and 2u spacebars into base kit. It doesn't cost much and means they don't have to pay an extra $30 for 3 major keys. Otherwise, I'd strongly suggest making a proper 40s kit as you're limiting a lot of users with R3 Esc and R2 Tab
  • Mod-coloured pipe has no sub-legends currently (also would like Mod-coloured tilde to match, but not necessary)
  • No scooped FJ keys for alphas kit (and mod-coloured tilde)
Wish you the best of luck on the set!
