Japanese text in character box corrupted

Snapchat-2008050021.jpg so I'm changing the text in my UTAUs Readme thingy to Japanese, but it keeps corrupting?

My locale is on Japan, I have my Japanese keyboard turned on, and my format is set to Japanese... im lost.

This doesn't happen when im using someone else's UTAU with Japanese text.

Seems like the text file was saved with the incorrect encoding. If you're using default Notepad, make sure that when you save the file you select ANSI. Since your computer's non-unicode language was already set to Japanese, this means that any Japanese characters in the file will force the file to get saved as Shift JIS.
If you're using other text editors (like Notepad++ or VS Code) you can directly set the encoding to Shift JIS.
