Follow-up Comment #14, bug #42136 (project octave):

The Linux and Windows command window use different fonts. 
It looks like the brackets aren't correctly monospaced with the font used in
Windows. Hence the misalignment. That is a problem with the font and there is
probably little we can do in Octave.
Some symbols might be missing because the glyphs aren't present in the font.

If you want to use UTF-8 encoded files on Windows, you first have to switch
the mfile encoding (which is system locale dependent by default):

__mfile_encoding__ utf-8
clear functions

After this, unicode_align2 should be displaying better.
