Queer, yet interesting endeavour. There are many striking letters. I would only mention the K,M,W,w, but there are many more. They make the text vibrant, almost dancing. However, there are a few static letters, including f,j,l,t,B,N, with straight perpendicular strokes, which don't seem to pick up the rhythm, and cause dissonance. They may need some magic twist, a slanted stem, or a slight angle, to get them move in harmony with the rest. 10/10

@Frodo7: Thanks for taking the time to look at this and posting some feedback, you have a great eye for these things. They were the exact glyphs I was looking at again yesterday. Now I will definitely revisit them to work on an update asap. Let's dance!

I'm in Shanghai now, and this font looks like it was created either in Shanghai-Beijing Express (350km/hour) or Shanghai Airport Maglev (450km/hour).
10/10! Nice addition to fonts from theotheo.

Quirky oriental Chinese font!

If Spiekermann joined a gang and went on a tagging spree in Chinatown, this is what it might look like. Love it!

@ architaraz: thanks, but I'm afraid my processes are rather slow in comparison ;)
@ fugitiveglue: thanks, I would love to be part of such an expedition.
