Any chance during the gb you can switch out the base kit with the Latin keys? I feel bad buying ~2 kits and not using one (only using the Latin)

Japanese is kind of integral to the theme of the set. That would be silly.

I'm in the same boat (don't plan on using the alphas with kana sublegends) but I really doubt that's popular enough to gain any traction

I personally love the sub legends on the base kit and is why I am going to get this set but I can understand your perspective.

Sadly that would go against the original idea of the set.

I would really prefer the revival set to be hiragana subs or base to use revival colors. Katakana honestly doesn't look as a good and is not as practical given japanese mostly uses hiragana.

I won't consider other language alphas because it doesn't make sense to me to have JIS sub legends on a ISO-DE layout though.

If anything, ISO-DE is closer to JIS than ANSI is, what with the ISO Enter key and the &,(,) on 6, 8, and 9 respectively :p

(I'm half trolling, and not trying to persuade you one way or the other -- what really matters is whether or not a kit will hit MOQ, after all -- but in defence of German hiragana enthusiasts, I don't think this reasoning stands ;). Of course, as a JIS user, I could argue that it doesn't make sense to have them on ANSI and so you should make this set JIS-only... but I'm only willing to take my tongue-in-cheek trolling so far!)

Gorgeous, major props. Noob question but want to be sure before shelling out - will the spaces in the base kit fit a Leopold 660?
