Akko, a brand not even 5 years young yet, has created waves already with some fantastic keycap sets that have grabbed the eyes of many around the world. Our own introduction to the brand came in the form of their Neon keycap set, and thanks to Epomaker, we have our hands on a full Akko keyboard this time around. Thanks again to Epomaker (and Akko) for sending a review sample to TechPowerUp!
Perhaps fittingly with all the delays to the event, this review will hopefully come up when the fervor to the 2021 Tokyo Summer Olympics is still ongoing. Akko wanted to create a whole series dedicated to Tokyo, nicknamed World Tour Tokyo, including multiple keyboards in different form factors, as well as accessories consisting of replacement keycap sets, a wrist rest, and even a desk mat. The common theme is a pink base with designs that take inspiration from popular Japanese elements, such as Mt. Fuji and Sakura. The Akko brand is also one of very few to offer uncommon keyboard sizes, which I wanted to take advantage of by going with the 84-key version seen above. We will go over all the features in detail and begin with a look at the specifications in the table below.
