What is Maru Mincho

Since its release in 2001, this typeface has been loved and used for a long time, from paper media such as posters, Advertisement, and magazines to digital content such as TV commercials, programs, and the web.
Although it is a Mincho font, the use of circles as elements gives it a soft impression, and the characters, with their emphasis on brush strokes, have a sense of dynamism, while also giving the viewer a sense of warmth and nostalgia.
There are seven different kana types in the Maru Mincho font.

Among them, Maruaki Old, which is classical yet modern, orthodox yet charming, has been used in many Advertisement media and books.
