Old IC (for those interested in seeing how far this set has come!)
More
"I want you to make a contract with me and become a Magical Girl!"



Update 11/11: There is a very real chance that this set may be produced by MaxKey instead. Progress on getting this on the road has been pretty slow going, but we're getting there...


SA Magica is a design that I had bouncing around in my head after seeing DSA Magic Girl. Hearing about the potential second run of it, I decided it would be time to throw my own twist on a set like that-- of course, with the twistiest magical girl anime there is! This entire project has served as my excuse to learn vector graphics, the entire process that keycap designers go through in order to get their design published, and generally, just something to keep me occupied during the COVID lockdown.
The set's color scheme is based on Homura Akemi, the (mostly) main character of the series.


I would have loved to do the other members of the Holy Quintet, but each member provided barriers that would probably kill much of the set's uniquity, colorway, or cost. Maybe, if this set strikes a chord with people, I'll do some other character keysets, but for now, this is the one!

Here are some pretty renders! I'm still bouncing between a couple of design decisions (which are listed in the IC form), hence the differences in the renders.

General info:
- To be manufactured by Signature Plastics

- Doubleshot

- ABS Plastic

- R3 Uniform Sculpt

IC FORM:
https://forms.gle/kzT3nqyrCDmwJGCG9


Gray mods, Standard Legends



Purple mods, Mono legends

apologies for the crusty renders, I had to downscale these in GIMP to upload them to imgur.

Currently I'm deciding between mono legends and standard legends, as well as gray mods or purple mods. Be sure to fill that question out on the IC form!

Kits:








SA Magica's kitting is designed with utmost compatibility in mind. Combined with a uniform keycap profile, along with stocking non standard keys by the buckets, I hope to support many of the non-standard keyboards out there. As a 40% user, and someone who is in the process of designing a non-standard keyboard myself, I love seeing sets that are able to support the multitudes of beautifully unique designs provided by the community.

Was originally going to do that, but had MOQ concerns.

black spacebars will happen, along with another B

The design constraint with this set was to use stock colors from SP to keep the price as low as possible. I'll see what I can do

Set looks nice, if I were you I would include a alpha color spacebars in the mod kit and spacebars kit, not too many people use mod colored spacebars for sets. IMO it makes a set look like it has a chin strap. Another thing I would do is change the F-row to be alpha color too. It helps the look of the set, if you had mod colored alphas then it would make more sense to run a mod colored F-row. Another idea I just had would be to include this alpha colored F-row in the alphas kit, that way you wouldn't need to include them in both grey mod kit and purple mod kit, just an idea idk if it is a good one though, I've never ran a SA set before.

There's only gonna be one color of mod kit for MOQ reasons, but thanks for the advice on the F row! Noted. The black spacebar will be included with alphas and hiragana when I get to fixing the set design.

changed the accent color to white, what do y'all think?

also edited the set to accomodate the most common requests, that being:
- purple mods
- alpha color spacebar
- extra B
- novs remake
- 1.75u return for HHKB
no change to mono or standard legends yet due to the response on that being literally 50/50

and also, novelties are great pain. would still very much appreciate suggestions, lolol

ah, yeah, my bad, forgot to mention that. Mono hiragana is gone because Maxkey doesn't have molds for them. Signature Plastics has an enormous lead time on all of their SA sets which is why I decided to switch.

Maxkey unfortunately does not have very many molds for 40%. This is the absolute extent I was able to get out of them for 40s.
I'm a 40s user myself so it makes me sad :(

I'm a bit confused by the ortho/40s. There's two 1u escape in the top row, shouldn't one of them be in the row below it? So that you have the standard choice of esc or tab in the first two rows of an ortho board?

I think the 2 1u esc is in an older version of the kits, the latest kits should be in the main post if I'm not wrong, and has only 1 1u esc

Huh. The layout in the opening post is, as far as I can tell, assuming a board that's five rows tall (like the preonic) and makes no allowances for four rows tall boards (like the planck) which I thought were the more popular layout for non-split ortho.

I hope the OP might consider making the ortho/40s more like their SA Rose set which has, in my opinion, a far more inclusive ortho.

I'm a bit confused by the ortho/40s. There's two 1u escape in the top row, shouldn't one of them be in the row below it? So that you have the standard choice of esc or tab in the first two rows of an ortho board?

I think the 2 1u esc is in an older version of the kits, the latest kits should be in the main post if I'm not wrong, and has only 1 1u esc

Huh. The layout in the opening post is, as far as I can tell, assuming a board that's five rows tall (like the preonic) and makes no allowances for four rows tall boards (like the planck) which I thought were the more popular layout for non-split ortho.

I hope the OP might consider making the ortho/40s more like their SA Rose set which has, in my opinion, a far more inclusive ortho.

Unfortunately I had to make do with what molds that Maxkey has available right now. The 40s compatibility used to be a lot more like Rose Librarian until I got into contact with MaxKey and we worked out what molds they had and didn't have. I would love to have more 40s support (as I both use and create 40s boards) but it's out of reach right now given the capabilities of Maxkey in this time of the year.

Well done with the update. I recently watched Rebellion. I think this keyset would remind me of the suffering, but I wish you luck in any case.
