    Cool fonts! Do you know if they only support katakana only or do they have english type as well?

  • http://www.jay-han.com jayhan

    hi, i remember some but very less which also has English type, but most of them is just Katakana only.

  • weng

    erm…do u mind show me how to use it? thanks!!

  • http://www.jay-han.com jayhan

    it’s easy weng, just download the font and install it (Win XP: open Control Panel > Fonts, and then drag the fonts to install it).

    If is direct input, you can select the font and type it out straight away. If is Japanese IME keyboard required, you need to install the keyboard at “Text Services and Input Languages”, then only can use it. (If East Asian language is not installed, you need to install it from your XP cd)

  • SukiSukiChu

    sorry to bother you but after you download it, i don’t understand because it opens in WinRar. Then also, when i opened control panel, i do not see any ‘fonts’ words.

  • SukiSukiChu

    hmm.. its ok, i found the fonts, but.. which one do i have to install? because there are alot of files in the WinRar when i opened it.

  • http://www.jay-han.com jayhan

    Hi, please check the file extension, normally a font file ends with .ttf, .otf, .lzh.

    I’ve been looking over the weekend for a font that looks exactly like gau-kusanagi. But the link is 404. Is there any other source for it?
