That's pretty cool! It looks like Hylian. It's a little difficult to read, but it's interesting seeing the thought process in the sketch image provided in the article. As long as it looks cool! Wink

The "so" character looks like a "ri"

It has a similar feeling to the writing style in Girls' Last Tour, which is funny since I remember people saying that GLT was like the CGDCT version of Blame.

Hate this font. Not only is it difficult to read, but many of the characters don't look like the characters they're supposed to at all. You could only read certain characters based on the context of the letter within the larger text. For instance, I'd never think that that was supposed to be hiragana ku, except it's between ki and ke. The only thing that MIGHT be good about it is katana so versus n, which in many fonts is pretty hard to distinguish, but this one may have a stronger difference.
