Does anybody know the name of the font used in the image above?
Is it popular in Japan?
I already see the response in my mail box... -_-Yeah, contact the companies whose logos these are and ask them what fonts they used....
It's almost impossible to identify the exact name of the font since there are countless fonts in Japanese
What does "normal fonts" refer to? Do you think there is a common font used in most Japanese companies' logos?Why don't they use normal fonts?
That's exactly what I answered...The first one (FUJI TV CLUB) is some kind of modified Handel Gothic
I am asking questions just to ignore the answers.Do you really read my reply in my initial post?
I think that there are popular fonts, which COULD be used in logos - that would make my life easier.What does "normal fonts" refer to? Do you think there is a common font used in most Japanese companies' logos?
I haven't seen "Handel Gothic D" font name in your post. I checked the links you posted a couple of times and I haven't found anything.That's exactly what I answered...
As for now, I am not researching how logos were made. I just need to make a couple of them in BIG resolution. I already found the name of one similar font, but I cannot find the font itself. I used MS PGothic and PJ Katakana for temporal versions.I would actually be surprised if a company designed their logo using an off-the-shelf font (or a free font, for that matter). Isn't it far more likely that the company designs its logo using a graphic designer? I mean, its like asking what font Warner Bros. uses for the "WB" in their logo. It's not really a "font" at all. Rather, its a unique design, formulated specifically for use a the company's logo. It's not intended to be used as a computer font that can then be used to type out other texts.
The best you will be able to do is to find similar-looking true-type or MS fonts.

So, you are saying that "Handel Gothic D" is not a kind of ポップ体 or ゴシック体, and the pages I linked include all kinds of ポップ体 and ゴシック体, not just examples. Well, well.I haven't seen "Handel Gothic D" font name in your post. I checked the links you posted a couple of times and I haven't found anything.
Those are two sentences. One says that you haven't posted the exact name of the font and the second one says that I haven't found the font I was looking for on pages you linked. This means that I am the one who failed here.So, you are saying that "Handel Gothic D" is not a kind of ポップ体 or ゴシック体, and the pages I linked include all kinds of ポップ体 and ゴシック体, not just examples.

As for now, I only need to make two logos: Nippon Columbia and Toei Animation.Do you only need the specific characters appearing in those logos, or do you also need other characters not in the logos? I'm assuming you need other characters, too, but if not, then there are shortcuts available.
I've tried one - it failed to recognize even Roman letters (I tried with two different fonts)Some websites offer services where you can attempt to identify a font either by uploading a sample or by answering a series of specific questions about the particular shape of characters in the font. However, the sites like this which I checked either only work with the Roman alphabet, or are mostly focused on hiragana instead of katakana.

The image you inserted comes from a website that sells this font, so I am not sure why you claim you couldn't find it.シーアンドジイ カナフェイス ボンジュール (I'm not sure if I copied the proper part...)。It looks like this:
I tried to vectorize them, but it gave a little bit worse effect than your work. Of course, I have all the graphics. It wasn't hard to find them.I took the Columbia and Toei logos and converted them into a vector format, which can be scaled to any size without loss of quality. Unfortunately, the source images were quite low-res, so the vector formats have artifacts that may be undesirable, making these files unusable, depending on the intended application. For both of the logos, the text part and the image part are in separate files. I was able to find hi-res versions of both images, so those parts are of high quality. The file format is SVG, which is a vector format. Various open source software out there can work with this format. Everything is placed together in a single zip file.
If you can use any of these files, then freely do so.
