Thank you for telling me that bug.

I tried to use outline mplus, which doesn't include bitmap data:
and tried to use Mona Font with WaxDragon's freetype.dll:

Modified freetype.dll works well!

But I think there still exist some bug with font rendering.
One of them is a line break. ReactOS automatically insert line feeds
at space. But Japanese text doesn't use space basically, so ReactOS
can't insert line feeds to proper position.

Many screenshots:
