I remember seeing something on the web about a conlang that was invented
for a manga.  Whenever a word in the conlang was used (usually for alien
technology), it was written in kanji, with furigana over it.  The
furigana was the word in the conlang, and the kanji gave you an idea of
what it meant.  Unfortunately i can't remember what the conlang or the
manga was called... i do remember that the conlang used a very
non-Japanese phonology, though.
