Idea. Could you make a green ANSI enter like you did the ISO?

Any possible for 2.25u Green enter with green spacebar? Thanks
Enter is added already. I'll do the green spacebars and add it to the spacebar kits :)

Very nice Alphas and Hiragana kits!


May I dare asking for the addition of a combined Alphas / Hiragana kit. This will make it complete :)
I must concur too!

Technically I would hope to do so, but am worried that it'll look too cramped.

Just changed. I forgot to change the other Enter to green. Thanks for reminding me :)

Numpad? And I must second icon mods for forties.

Also, maybe more green accents? At least green enters for forties.

For those that are worried about the dye sub issue on the colors, I had checked with keyreative. They mentioned there shouldn't be any issue in making these. Hope this will answer the question that some of you might have. :)

Any chance of switching to katakana instead of hiragana?  IMO the angularity fits the EVA aesthetic better.

I had requested for samples from Keyreative, hopefully I will receive them by end of this month, or earliest next month :)

This is a really nice set! I like the hiragana look, but I agree that Katakana may suit the Eva theme better.

While youíre looking at the kana set, please consider making the following changes/additions (here I have used the standard notation of using R1 for the top row and R4 for the bottom, which appears to be the reverse of how you have the rows labelled):

  • Replace R1 む with ー, or add an R1 ー key. This is the syllable extending line character, not the kanji for ď1Ē or anything like that.  Itís often inside a dotted box on Japanese keyboards.
  • Add an R3 む key
  • Add an R4 ろ key

These keys are required for correct placement for people who are actually typing using kana input; also, without the R3 む, ISO users wonít be able to use the kana set either. For kana-only sets, I believe these changes represent a nice compromise that allows JIS, ISO, and ANSI users all to get the most out of the set without having to add to many keys, and I would love to see this become the standard layout for those creating Japanese alpha sets.

If you want to support JIS users further, the inclusion of a 2U shift (which you have! Thank you!) allows for the extra ろ key on the bottom row, and a 3U space bar allows space for the English/Kana keys that go either side of the space bar on a Japanese keyboard.

Thanks for your consideration!  Please feel free to hit me up if you have any questions about JIS layout.

Thank you for your suggestions! I'll take in the suggestions and add the keys as optional keys :)

Yeap it will be. I think I accidentally forgot to upload the numpad kit up. Thanks for reminding! I'll update it back up later when I'm back home :)

I know that this set is a long way off, but have you checked out the KAT cyberspace thread? (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=104969.0) Do you think that it would be possible or good looking to do the legends in a glow in the dark or shine through pbt plastic? I also noticed that a hirigana set exists, but no dual legend option exists, is that something that might be in the works? And if the last question is of interest, is there any chance for a cyrillic option? Thank you for your time. Justin

A small update,

Deskmat art is in the works. The sketch had been done, and the artist will proceed with completing it. It will take some time, as the artist is having some health problems, but I'm sure you all would not be disappointed with the art. ;)

The other good news is, there will be collabs. So ready your wallets, it'll be an exciting ride for everyone

I'm terribly sorry for the lack of updates lately as well, as college had just started and I'm trying to finish up some assignments and projects. Currently aiming to release this set within the next few months, so there will be a lot of things to work on.

I have tried to contact the full metal before starting this project. Although I have reached out to him before but got no reply from him. As much as I like EVA theme caps, I decided to create a KAT Shogoki instead of clashing with a cherry profile EVA theme cap which we never know whether the creator will come back to work on his set after the lack of update since January.

Well apparently he got permission but thereís a difference between basing a keyset on the same cartoon you guys watch and then copying the same colors in the same exact places with almost same novelties. So yes people do care about that. However in this case itís ok and your cartoon keyset will be coming to you soon for your next Saturday morning cartoon binge.

Made an account to express how excited I am about this project. Is there any reason why the hiragana characters seem smaller on R4? If those get changed to be the same size as the rest of the alphas, I'm absolutely in!

Have you got any more recent updates? You mentioned you had requested a sample a couple months ago, could you share some pics please? :D

The samples look good! Just hoping for more vibrancy on the colours to get them matching the renders as closely as possible.

Btw, will the R4 hiragana keys have a smaller font than the rest of the keyboard? It looks this way in the images and just wanted to confirm if that was (not) the case? I think it would look better if they were uniform with the rest of the caps, personally.

Thanks!
