The colors sadly represent her plugsuit and EVA more than Asuka herself so not really a fan of this.

Pretty common for weeb sets to focus on colors from iconic clothing for the character, and I might even argue that it's kind of the norm. But for Asuka in specific, even the high end official collab merch like the Fender custom shop telecaster or the recent Asus gear will actually be Eva-02 or plugsuit colored. The Tele was specifically Asuka branded as well.



I don't mind the colors but the novelties aren't super interesting to me. Overwhelming majority are effectively just text novs and I don't find them particularly interesting. There's also just errors that have been pointed out multiple times on the MW Evangelion sets that aren't fixed. e.g. 'evabacing' - the kanji is '暴走' which means acting recklessly or rampaging, or, in computer science, runaway process. It's pronounced  ぼうそう/bousou. Is it supposed to be 'evacuating'? But that still wouldn't make sense for those kanji - when it's translated as runaway, it doesn't mean 'running away/fleeing', it means 'out of control.' But in general it feels like the novelties are largely just some kanji and text thrown down onto a keycap. Which, if you're just going to shameless copy the IP, why not copy some of the amazing iconography from the series? It fits a bit with the design of the computer interfaces and how they would frequently have big kanji words flashing over the rest of the screen, but that's basically the entire identity of the set, novelty wise. If this is an Asuka set, where are the A-10 clips? Where is the Lance? If you're going the Rebuild route, where is the eyepatch?

Your base kit currently has the UK specific keys ~# and @" in base as well as in the Norde kit. They can be omitted from the base kit if they're in the Norde kit.
