Basically it's OK. Some legacy fonts designed for classic MacOS
have only Shift-JIS encoding (no Unicode encoding interface),
but most fonts produced recently have Unicode interfaces.
In such case, you have to use some character encoding conversion
library (e.g. iconv). FreeType2 does not provide encoding conversion

Hmm, I'm not sure what the encoding you wanted use.
Regarding the 24bit length of 0xE38193, I guess you
wanted to use UTF-8. Please try UCS-4 codepoint
(e.g. 0x00003042, the UCS-4 codepoint of hiragana "A").
