A version of Stone Slab (http://fontstruct.fontshop.com/fontstructions/show/236076) that contains Hiragana, Katakana and Bopomofo. Notes: *Use a large font size, at least 72. *If possible, adjust the leading (the gap between two lines) so that it becomes smaller. *If possible, adjust kerning between characters that otherwise won't get completely next to eachother, for example Î and any lower case letter.

A nice addition to your Stone Slab family. The character set is simply amazing. And so is your patience and dedication. As a European, I would think the Katakana and Bopomofo/Zhuyin glyphs are easier to adapt to this style. Having curves and loops, the Hiragana alphabet looks a bit blocky to me, but only a Japanese can tell whether those glyphs pose any problem to legibility. Any plan for Kanji? 10/10

Thanks for the praise and rating! :D Well, I'm fluent in Kana but I do think both the Hiragana and Katakana are very hard to read in this font.

Kanji? Yeah um... That's quite much to do, I'll use FontStruct not having it as an excuse. ;)

I actually invented this font several years ago, but I would just practice it on paper, because I didn't have any font software then. I did try making kanji with this style a little bit. The problem is just that then I'd have to deviate from the 4x4 grid which all the other characters are based on, for them to be legible at all. Although I guess I've broken against that rule a lot already in this font...
