If you don't know what the title is about this is probably irrelevant to you If,on the other hand, you're reading Japanese text on android you will have noticed that characters default to Chinese variants for unified characters with no obvious way to change that (short of changing the system locale). This problem goes way back on android and I know I'm not the only one bothered by this (see this person from 2011). Feel free to read up on why this is happening or see examples here.

This can easily be fixed by installing and inserting the Japanese version of DroidSans in the font fallback order, which I've been doing manually for a while but is a bit of a hassle if you like to flash or update roms as it will involve doing just that every single time. Hence I've made a flashable zip for those who are lazy like me or don't know how to/are reluctant to edit the files themselves.




Made and tested on 4.4.3 but should work on most recent versions/roms.
