I’m mostly using WaniKani on my mobile device, so I’m more used to the font there. But when I occassionally switch to PC for reviews, it feels like a completely different font, but only since I installed the Japanese Keyboard IME for Windows 10! The PC browser font feels more bold and horizontally strechted compared to the smartphone browser font (and the PC font before that installation) now. Does the IME keyboard somehow reconfigure displayed Japanese fonts in my browser? To assure myself that I’m not going crazy, I made two pics from both devices and cropped them:
Font on Smartphone:
Font on PC:
DO YOU SEE THE DIFFERENCES? (whispers) do you?
Sadly, I don’t have an image to compare to from before I installed the IME keyboard, so maybe the thing about the keyboard is just me. But the fonts are definitely not the same.
Am I going mad over a font change, feeling sympathy for the smartphone font and slowly developing deep hatred over the PC font, accussing it for any wrong answers I made in reviews?
