Anime Key Labs is an incredible new shop that makes artisan anime keycaps. To give you an idea as to what you are in store for and the kind of quality you can expect from Anime Key Labs, I wanted to give you guys a look at and review of their first keycap release, which features Bulbasaur from Pokémon. Spoiler alert, it's an exciting look at what's to come! More artisan keycaps as well as resin desk cubes are on the way from Anime Key Labs, so you'll want to keep an eye out on their shop for more.
Anime Key Labs' keycaps have an SA R1 profile and MX stems, so they will fit any keyboard with MX compatible switches. I personally have a WhiteFox Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Clear switches. I have opted to swap out their keycaps for the GMK Noel base set, which has a pastel blue and pink color palette. The Anime Key Labs Bulbasuar keycap is an adorable custom edition to my keyboard—and a number of other keyboards for that matter.
Their keycaps are made out of resin and they are handmade and hand-painted with care. They ship their keycaps quickly and securely in sturdy as well as branded cardboard boxes that have foam inserts in them, which safely house your keycap and protect them during shipment. All of the tiny details they included on their Bulbasaur keycap is incredible and I can't believe how accurate and tidy the paintwork is, especially all of the plants and flowers that are underneath or surrounding Bulbasaur.
They managed to pack a lot in such a small area, but they practiced restraint as well. I appreciate the fact that they added only the necessary elements to bring this lively and vibrant scene to life. Bulbasuar has a cute expression on his face and his details, such as his red eyes, green plant bulb and tentacle-like vines, and his colors—His characteristic reds, blue-greens, and greens—are all accurate. They even added his tiny pointed teeth, which are visible when he opens his mouth. I also love the Bulbasaur graphic that surrounds the bottom of the keycap as well. It looks like he is peeking up at you, which is absolutely adorable.
The overall scene, which is encapsulated in clear resin, is just amazing and fun to look at and it adds a lot of personality to your keyboard setup. They really thought everything through from the overall setting to the look and personality of Bulbasuar, so the accuracy is there, but I'm most amazed by Anime Key Labs attention-to-detail.
