As for the original topic of this thread, I am not aware of Japanese

As for LuaTeX, I think this engine has been a great revolution within
the TeX ecosystem, to the point that it is setting the standard of
everything that is coming new and what is to come. I guess that LuaTeX
will be the natural replacement for pdfTeX (in fact, LuaTeX evolved from
pdfTeX and also took elements from another lesser known, experimental
TeX engine, Omega, which was the first attempt, quite avant-garde, to
create a TeX engine totally Unicode based:
