Looking good! Are alpha colors WS1/N9 same as alphas in GMK Evil Dolch? I'm wondering if I could mix NorDeUk kit from Evil Dolch with this one?
Correct! Same colors  :thumb:

Just for context, are the mods the same colors as GMK WoB?

Yes, they are. The mods are CR base with WS1 Legends, the alphas are N9 base with WS1 Legends and the accent is WS1 base with CR legends

What are the odds we could get 3 (R3 1.25 tab, R3 1.5u enter/fn, R2 1.75 BS) 40s keys added to base that would cover a healthy portion of the community?

Thanks!

Love the set, but honestly the novelties are almost exactly like GMK Film's from November.

Not sure if this has been asked before, but the novelty for the enter key, what does the 1,2,3 supposed to be? I would love an aperture ring themed enter key.
Hey! The 1,2,3 novelty for the R3 Ansi Enter is supposed to symbolize the exposure indicator found in most camera hud's!

Ahh, okay, exposure compensation, right.

Hmm, on the other hand these images are similar because they are ubiquitous though - they reference a set of icons so commonplace that any argument of copying might as well be moot.

woah where's this hustle by you guys for those non licensed anime/video game sets?
i don't often see those keycap designers thanking the animators or publishers for those.....

I spit my drink after reading.

What a fun IC to look at. I really appreciate all of the work you put into this IC. Love the theme - sub legends look great!

Yeah I agree. I doubt it was copying. But there has to be a line where you consider changing if someone has already displayed your idea a while ago.

ISO novelties look like the best in the kit, also, can we have these 2 as R2 - R3 for 65/75s layouts (for the right macro column)?

I feel similarly and I'm glad they put in a Latin base set and not separate alphas you have to pay extra for.

It will be $45 or more for the alphas solo on top of base.

I appreciate the support on the Latin base kit. The reasoning why this was replaced with the Latin alpha kit as for now, is because I and the vendors rather wanted to reach a higher MOQ on one of the base kits. That way we can try to adjust the pricing and make it more pleasing for you guys. Also ranging from feedback from the google form, the Hiragana Base was leading with over 20% in votes, so that was an easy choice to decide which base to keep.

This being said, it is very hard to please everyone, but I'm trying my best. Once we submit quotes to GMK, we will throw in all kits, to see what we can do. The Latin base isn't gone yet, it's still a possibility that we might run with it, but this will all be taken into consideration! Thanks

Thanks for your reply and effort! As someone whose first language is an alphabet that has never been offered by GMK or any other premium manufacturer, I feel somewhat strongly about using keycaps with legends from languages that I do not speak. I recognize that many people appreciate "exotic" sublegends regardless of whether they understand that language for practical purpose, but I think it is also ethical to reflect on how you're using someone else's language as a way to fill an aesthetic space. Not trying to specifically call out anyone else's preferences as problematic, sorry that is not my intention at all. I just wanted to share the reason for why I am asking for a Latin base, others asking for a Latin base may of course have different reasons.

I can understand. We will still offer Latin alphas, but maybe not as a base kit. But all the feedback regarding this update will be taken into consideration!

Personally I think the Hiragana sub legends in base kit make a lot of sense considering so many camera brands are from Japan (and the name of the set, mats etc).

Also a big fan of higher MOQ sets, which makes them more affordable and hard to do when running 2 base kits. I understand running 2 base kits, if the IC results are close to 50/50, but over 20% lead for Hiragana is fairly significant.

Hoping we get a Rama soon  :thumb:

I appreciate your understanding! This is a big part of why I chose to run with subs!

Regarding Rama, there will most definitely be a Shashin x Rama collab :D

Hey, thanks! The hhkb keyboard in the header picture would be the Rama M60-A

Sad to see latin base go... I like this set but unfortunately am out if without the latin base as im not willing to pay extra for the alphas.

I understand your decision!
