[IC] PBTFANS™ KABUKI-CHO 歌舞伎町

Hello,Everyone!

Welcome to Kabuki-Cho!

Whenever the Kabuki-cho shows up in all the Japanese novels, anime, and movies I have enjoyed,
this scene could be different every time in my imagination.

It is the irreplaceable landmark of how a nightlight city like Tokyo could be.
Sometimes that is the hustle and bustle you ever want to fit in.




Colors
I choose the red of the signboard, the dark blue of the night and the light blue of the neon light as main colors to match,
hope it brings you joyful feeling :)

Hey, a heads up, I ran one of the base kits through a comparison for someone that is partially colorblind in red and I see what you mean. You might also me slightly colorblind.

Nice cyberpunk-ish theme. Love the renders (neutral lighting !). Cool novelties. Definitely getting a set.

Ohh, very nice!! Especially the deskmat!
Reminds me of when I used to work in Kabukicho, your eyes are bombarded with the glaring lights from the surrounding love hotels and host clubs constantly :))

I think this set actually sticks with the theme pretty well. There are far too many that don't really resemble their original inspiration.

Would this set be entirely reverse dye-sub? That's probably going to turn a lot of people off. It seems like PBTfans has doubleshot ABS capability, so I'd imagine that's how this set will go.

A few things, although IDK how PBTfans structures their molds/pricing:
-Adding a tab key in the latin alphas kit would enable a base kit to cover more than one board.
-The nomad kit would benefit from a 1.75u backspace and replacing the 1.5u lock with 1.5u shift. A 1.75u shift would also be a good move.

you'd have to be colorblind to not see the resemblance.

8008 is grey + pink. This set is not grey + pink + weeb. I’d say Commute looks more like 8008, but even that’s not fair.

Would this set be entirely reverse dye-sub? That's probably going to turn a lot of people off. It seems like PBTfans has doubleshot ABS capability, so I'd imagine that's how this set will go.

You must’ve misread. IIRC PBTfans doesn’t dyesub or ABS (except Neon). It’s (apparently) doubleshot PBT.

I love how this set looks, and I REALLY love that it includes command keys. But the arrow legends really should be centered.

Oh hell yeah for this set.

I have both references as tapestries in my apartment. I have the main one in the gif covered more than half my bedroom wall for a bed backdrop.

I have the other one much smaller that I dont have up anywhere right now.

As for those arrows... I would prefer them as if verse centered.

the arrows in this configuration is common in many cherry profile molds. take a look at some gmk sets.

Not much the designer can do besides massively inflating prices, since KBDfans would have to make new tooling for centered arrows.

Love the colors, but I wish it had slightly more contrast in the alphas.
