[IC] GMK Hanami Dango | 2 new special collabs (12/11)
« on: Mon, 27 July 2020, 13:14:47 »

GB DATES:
DECEMBER 8TH TO JANUARY 26TH




Hey everyone!
I'm happy to present you GMK Hanami Dango. Hanami Dango is a japanese sweet very popular in spring during the cherry blossom viewing (Hanami 花見, "flower viewing"). It's also known as Sanshoku Dango (three coloured Dango) because of the iconic pink white and green! It's made out of sweet mochi rice dumplings on a skewer. Pink is often flavored with sakura, green with matcha and white is just sweet rice. The set is based on the flower viewing tradition of eating hanami dango and dreaking matcha tea.

Awesome theme & design OP, I really dig this! The one issue I see is like HoodrowThrillson said GMK doesn't do novelty spacebars. I believe they have the capability to pad print spacebars, but have never heard of them doing it. Although TBH, I think the set would be just fine without the novelty bars anyways.

I wonder if JTK could do novelty spacebars? They did those Geekhack double shot spacebars in the past....

Cute, and I appreciate the fact that even though you have a Japanese-themed set, you didn't just slap on sublegends. I'm a sucker for green so this is definitely at least on the radar for now.

I really like this, though I feel this is a set that would work better in PBT? Which would also help with the spacebar novelty issues. Though GMK does indeed do pad printed spacebars. We need to see spacebar novelties more often.

Very nice set, just 2 small gripes i have, the accents in the base kit have white font ? Don't know if that's intentional and for the spacebars can we have pink ones instead of mod colored green ones, it hurts my brain,but its kinda a trend lately don't know if its only me who dislikes it.

It's not supposed to be white, but cream maybe it's my fault xD

And I'll try for the spacebars!

I agree! I would love to see a set that supports JIS that doesn't have kana sublegends, as the very few sets that do come with JIS support (SimpleJA, /dev/tty's Nihon kit) usually include sublegends.

...A man can dream!  For now, I'm just grateful to have the keys included in the hiragana kit that makes it possible to use the set at all.

This set has correct kana support in the Hiragana Mono kit; props for that.

I see a few potential improvements for the base kit:
  • Add R3 Pg Up, R4 Pg Dn keys for 65%/75% layouts.
  • Remove numpad sublegends for a cleaner look.
  • Change Win legends to Super or System (Sys for 1u); most people don't like Win keys.
  • Change Prt Sc to Print for consistency with other legends.
  • All of the \ legends should be \| (| instead of ).
  • Currently the ISO support is inconsistent. Fix it by either:
    • adding the three keys that are missing for full ISO-UK support: R1 `, 2", 3 (example); or
    • removing R3 '@ and changing R3 #~\| and R4 \|<> for more neutral ISO support that uses less keys (example).
    I would recommend doing the latter for reasons outlined here.
  • If you want, change /, * legends on the numpad to , .

Spacebars kit:
  • In general, I would suggest using the alpha white instead of the accent red as the main spacebar color. Only have 6.25u, 7u and one of each 2.25u and 2.75u in the accent red color (example).
  • 2.5u spacebar size doesn't exist. The two 2.5u spacebars should be 2.75u. In which case the existing red 2.75u should either be changed to 3u (if you want to include that) or removed from the kit.
  • Either change the second 1u space to white, or remove both the second 1u and second 1.25u. Two 1u spacekeys of the same color aren't useful if the set doesn't have ortho support.

Edit: added explanations
