Designed based on the open source Source Han Serif, Genkai Mincho (源界明朝) is a eroded version that you can download for free. According to the designer, he “distorted” the font until to the point of being barely readable by human eye. However with this effect, it can expresses sense of epic-ness and drama.
Since the font is derived from the open source font, Genkai Mincho also released under SIL Open Font License, which means you can use it on any project. Please bear in mind that, because of this font has huge collections of glyphs with high level of grungy details, the font size is large and it might slows your machine down when you are using it.
