Maybe you didn't notice that there are two pages (I made this mistake earlier on their site  :) ) or they uploaded these two items later (which happened also earlier).

If I wanted to cover a Rama Koyu, would I just need the alt katakanas and icon mods?

Yeah for that you'll need a set of alphas and mods for full coverage

Just curious - interested in ordering and like the text mods, just not a fan of the text arrow keys. Might anyone be interested in trading/selling the yellow icon arrow keys when these ship next year?

Website is locking me out of buying the desk mat and keyboard at the same time, which adds $10 to shipping on the deskmat by itself.
Any clue why this is happening? Might be a dealbreaker for a mat I'd otherwise snag in a heartbeat.

Looks nice. I need some more red in my key sets. I will probably pick up an ergo set and maybe the novelties and a deskmat. Also happy to see the anime inspired themes, especially KonoSuba.

I mentioned this late in the IC and at this point it is probably too late to change even if you wanted to, but why is the Caps Lock icon arrow with a line pointing down? KAT/KAM is the only key cap style I have ever seen use this symbol that way. All other uses of this icon outside of KAT/KAM have the arrow pointing up with the line below it. Most other sets that don't use the underlined shift arrow use a lock symbol, and a handful of others (some GMK and JTK sets, as well as Ducky and some Razer keyboards) use a down arrow (inverted shift icon) with no line. Using an inverted shift arrow is strange to me, but I could see an argument for it being more flexible to be used as Function or maybe even a Control key and it doesn't appear to be entirely uncommon. The the bar over the down arrow is what puzzles me. Is this a Keyreative manufacturing thing, or did you specifically design it that way?

Yes, those would be all you need for that board!

R4. So they would be good for an esc or top row for 50-66% keyboards.

This was just a design choice by myself.

I went a little overboard with this set. I was originally going to get 3 kits. Ended up with 9 + a deskmat. I guess that I got too hyped for it because it looks so darn good. Glad to see that it's doing so well. Now I need to build more boards. I think I'll pick up a Minivan when TKC releases it to put some of this on.

Got my set.  Thought about other konosuba characters? I would think a Darkness set would look great, white, black, and orange or a set for Wiz with the two shades of purple and gold.

I am in! First ever group buy!

I am hoping since this one has been so very popular, it will get good attention when being made and turn out perfect.

When you spend 250 and the expectation is that that money is spent but you can't enjoy the item till much later feels strange.

BUT! That seems to be the cost of doing business in the custom mech world. So I will try to forget about this for 6 months or so.

Thanks for what surely had to be a ton of work to make this happen. All I had to do was spend money. Good luck to us all on our future keycaps!

Both have been done: KAT Crusader (currently in IC phase) and KAT Lich.

I saw the lich.  I just got into keyboards recently and wish I knew of the set back in January, it looks sooooo good.
