Console fonts with good looking Japanese and Cyrillic

Finally! A set of fonts that look good and properly display Japanese and Cyrillic. That is, the Cyrillic is half-width as it is supposed to be. For Gentoo users the package is media-fonts/efont-unicode or there is the official page for everyone else. Some characters like the lowercase б and д are oddly designed but that's a very small price to pay for the pleasure of not having to mix and match different fonts in my terminal configuration. I wish I'd known that a little earlier.
