Tanugo is a free Japanese font that comes with two designs: hard corner (角) and rounded corner (丸). This font is the improved version over the previous free font that we introduced: Yusei Magic. While maintaining the same characteristic of a handwriting style font with permanent marker, Tanugo font is tidier, and more readable on smaller font sizes.

Tanugo font not only comes with two designs, each designs also comes with several font weights. The hard corner version has four weights while the rounded version has three. Best of all, the font is open-sourced and comes with extensive kanji character library. I would like to thank the font creator, Tanukizamurai, for your contribution!
