- I remember seeing something on the web about a conlang that was invented for a manga. Whenever a word in the conlang was used (usually for alien technology), it was written in kanji, with furigana over it. The furigana was the word in the conlang, and the kanji gave you an idea of what it meant. Unfortunately i can't remember what the conlang or the manga was called... i do remember that the conlang used a very non-Japanese phonology, though. -Stephen (Steg) "yaldi hatov veharakh, al tira ve'al tifhhad..." ~ yokheved, _prince of egypt_
