Is the Hiragana Kit use new molds? I can't think of another reason why that kit costs so much other than new molds.

You should also post links to all of the vendors on this thread. You posted an image that tells us the sites but having a link directly to each is more helpful.

You also have a third B in the spacebars kit, there's already 2 in the Base kit. Not too sure if it's to late to take that extra one out of the spacebars kit.

Unfortunately I can't answer you for the molds as i don't know myself. For the B i realized way too late :(
As for the links I'm just waiting that every vendor goes live for me to post the direct link to the set

Ouch that price tag on the Hiragana kit.

As said during the IC phase, awesome set but really hefty price tag for somebody that will  only use the Hiraganas and not the Alphas.
That's buying a 135$ kit for only using about 15 keys in a 65% or below, even less if you go for the Novelties.

Still an awesome looking set that I'll try to hop on if I can justify letting 90+% of the base kit sit in the box  :(

This is an inherent problem with GMK's MOQ system, sadly. Most of the time it's not worth to do alternate alphas on GMK kits imo.

I suggested during the IC to have the option between a base Alpha kit or a base Hiragana kit, but it was too late to make changes at that point.

Maybe it's possible to have a "frankenstein" set with Hiraganas+novelties and try to find the missing keys for a 65% that I could have laying around from other sets.

Is there any render for the Artisan metal keycap with the base set? I just want to see if the pink on the metal keycap is the same color as the pink on the other keys (like arrow keys)...

been following this set since early in the interest check phase, and it's now officially the first GB where I actually copped every kit, even the artisan (well, every last thing but the deskmat, because my workspace isn't big enough for standard 900mm mats, but close enough)

so anyways, bravo on the great set hect :> can't wait to see how this GB goes, so I'll be hanging around here a bit perhaps...

anyone else have a general idea what keyboard do you guys see yourselves trying GMK Hanami Dango on eventually? I found a modestly priced 60% on taobao recently which I'm hoping will compliment the matcha-toned mods nicely--


the green is too cool-toned tho, isn't it

also considering getting a Rama Kara in Soya for this set and all them other cream-based keycaps that clash with white bases.it's almost too cheap to pass up on, even knowing it's plastic...

Not sure yet, but I think itíll work nicely on polycarbonate. Itís tough to come by quality green keyboards, but I definitely wouldnít go to aliexpress or anything like that. You have some time to save, itís gonna be a while.

I will be building a Rama u80-a seq 2 soya with the base kit of this set. It will be my first keeb! I feel like the cream based caps will go good with the off-white of the soya. You should definitely go for the kara in soya!

After actually seeing that comment and realizing it, Iím not sure I can justify spending the money on it myself.

Over a month to go, and extras will as per usual be ordered by the vendors, i.e. no sweat. No reason to hold back or be worried.

Good thing this GB is running over a long time, as I can't make up my mind due to the high price of alternate alphas and novelties.
But I know I will regret not getting this set.


But I am still not sure on which Keylabs key I'd prefer.
I am not quite sure I "understand" the swirl version, what is it exactly? It's just a random pattern of green mixed in? (it looks very black on the pictures)
Are the pictures renders or a prototype? I would assume each one would be a unique pattern?

The keylab keys are pictures, for the swirl it's green mixed in some cream colored resin. I assume each one is a unique pattern as it's just mixed in it. The other is enamel paint

I love this set. It could well be my first GB.  :D

However, I have a couple of issues - both due to me being in the UK.

  • The EU vendor have stopped shipping to the UK until further notice.
  • I like to use an ISO/UK layout, and don't want the US number row. I'm more than happy to use the Hiragana monolegends but it doesn't look like they are going to hit the MOQ. What happens in that instance?
