I wanted to make a font with the opposite concept of SquareOff, but with squareish letters. This is an accented, oriental font made without any slants. Not a pixel font, but a beautiful result nonetheless.

I like the suction-cuppy feel that this has, but I think some parts aren't quite right in ways I can't explain. Some technical analysis on your part might help.

Overall there are some nice elements to this - but I agree with you that there are a few things that don't seem 100% yet.

I'm not sure about the lower/right serif on the G, think it might be better if it echoed the C. The M and W look a bit narrow to me. Don't know about the K - it looks a bit agressive. I have never been a fan of the swastika X (I know the symbol has a far more ancient, and peaceful, origin - but it carries far too much baggage from the 20thC).

Well, it was the only X I could make and be square, unfortunately.
about the G, the lower right corner is square on a regular G, so I gave it that little flare. I do think that does look a little like a base and not like a line, though.
As far as the K, I could've made it more like:
|_|
|...|
where the bottom line exceeds the top or something, but I thought it looked to H-like.
