  • Features on optimizing shapes for block writing
  • Borrows features from both archaic and modern rune sets for optimal handwriting
  • Does not yet have numerals
The Prima Variant

The Prima Variant

  • Cursive style
  • Best C-character for handwriting ♥


2ch Variant

2ch Variant writing sample:
KARAAGE OISHIKU TSUKURUNARA? KARAAGE OISHIKU TSUKURUNARA?

2ch begun experimenting with handwritten runes after The Rebellion Story premiere. Despite the late start, their script quickly become quite polished in their own right.

Advantages:

  • Clean
  • Easy to learn
  • Closely approximates the official font

Other variants

deviantART user JapanYoshi likened archaic runes to blackletter/fraktur writing and modern runes to serif, and attempted to make a "Sans Serif" variant. He only supplies a pixel art sample, but by far the most simplified variant for better or for worse.

A P hand a.png Archaic A.svg
B P hand b.png Modern B.svg Based on Modern B, rather than the Archaic version, when concentrating on speed. This may clash with E and M.
C P hand c.png Archaic C.svg Borrowed from Prima's variant.
D P hand d.png Modern D.svg
E P hand e.png Archaic E.svg Based on the Archaic version of E. The crossing stroke is more distinct than with the modern version.
F P hand f.png Archaic F.svg
G P hand g.png Modern G.svg Tentative. The modern G rune feels more natural for handwriting, when compared to the inverse curl required in the archaic version.
