The dark vibe gets my attention, please consider adding novelties for iso enter like you did with hanami dango. Also, are you sure the novelties won't trigger GMK new policies?

Would've preferred purple & black to represent Sung Jin-Woo, although blue is a better representative for solo leveling.

Not the biggest fan of blue and red, but I appreciate the mashup.

I'll probably add iso enter. And i think i'm quite late because i haven't heard anything about new policies. I'm afraid now, i lost so much time on those novelties too T_T

You don't need to be afraid if you can get permission from the IP holder of the theme. Otherwise, you're gonna need to redesign them to be less-to-not related to it....

Don't like the font color,  could be better if mixing white color, make it a bit bright.

Ya I really enjoy this series, and part of what makes the art so good is the super vibrant colors. The colors of this set as presented seem a bit... underwhelming?

You also might consider adding some of that neon purple color that we see around Sung Jin-Woo as time has gone on. I also know that the "Iron" shadow is a nice comic relief sometimes, so it might be a fun novelty to have a derpy Iron.

In addition, I'm not sure how things are gonna be going with concerns of IP with GMK, but I'd be willing to pay extra for the set if getting permission involved some increase in cost.

I see a lot of people asking why i did red and not purple and it's very understandable but i got some reasons for that:
- main reason is this pic

- you can't not love igris he's so cool and loyal
- he's the first big summon
- igris
- ok maybe i'll stop saying igris and find a real reason
- There's so much sets with purple/black
- red is a cool color
- I also wanted something really simple clean and dark
But maybe i can do something like that

I think echoing some of the opinions, but I wish the accents and colours had a bit more pop to them. Especially since you're going with GMK right now and can take advantage of ABS.

If this gets support for the german /?/\ and keys (forgot the name of that sorry) I will buy it.

Until now sadly i am not a fan of the desk mats, how about a dark one with only his shadow summons without colorful highlights. I would take something as well!

For some reason this doesn't scream ''solo leveling'' at all with me, i think all the possible color options haven't really been explored, this feels more like a color set you would start with and thinker with it to find out the most fitting combination, right now it looks very generic.

unfortunately i'll have to remove accent kit, it's making the moq stupidly big and if i put it in base it will make it kinda more expensive so yeah

Is the GB scheduled to launch on July 6 or is this the schedule that is pushed back? Saw July 6 as launch date on zfrontier just yesterday.

And are the two R2 mod keys in both base sets intended?

Kind of agreeing with this. I wouldn't say it looks generic, just think that it can be work on a little. Since the GB is being push back, maybe you can take this opportunity to change something up? If not, I respect your ideas and definitely will cope the deskmat for myself. Big fan of the LN, can't believe there's a day someone would make a set out of it lol.
