GenEi LateMin


GenEi LateMin is a open source Japanese font that is free to download. It combines two weights (Light and Semibold) of GenEi Gothic, with the vertical strokes in Semibold and horizontal strokes in Light weight. So you can see transforming of stroke weights that has both horizontal and vertical lines.

The font itself was originally based on Source Han Sans, and the author modified it to this version which is suitable for comic text. It comes with two styles: LateMin and LateGo. Personally I think LateMin looks better.
