FAQ:
Why?
Why not?

Why not Hiragana/Katakana sublegends?
The source material/inspiration is Chinese, so why would we use Japanese sublegends?

Why is ISO-UK in the latin alpha’s kit and not base?
Due to the current molds available it made more sense to split these out to allow for aesthetic continuity. We have included an extra tab key in the Alphas so that those who want ISO-UK have enough remaining keycaps to build another Keyboard. It's our attempt at value for money.



Updates/Change Log:
18th Jan 2021: Interest check launched, Corrected credit for SP-111 to BlindAssassin111

"Juvenile Galant" Sounds like the title of one of those independent French films about "young love"..

I think the set would look a LOT better if the whole thing was gold on green, with gold on white accents. As is, is too "busy" and has to many clashing colors hat don't go well together.

I like it! Feel like there should be more blue, as I think when people think of Xingqiu it's probably along the lines of Hydro character/blue haired (at least for me). Will definitely keep an eye on this set

You know what? I'm not mad at this set. It's pretty nice but I do agree with others that there is a lot of white. Perhaps maybe blue or brass mods with white accent keys?

IMO, the base kit without those characters sub legends would pull the best clean overall look.
can consider to put the sub legends as a kit option selection. Just food for thought.

neat set. the white however does seem to jump out and bite the eyes as opposed to feeling a bit more relaxed and composed (which is antithetical to xingqiu's character lol)
might wanna tone down the white to a cream-ish color or figure out something different.
