These two fonts are the same. Their foundry is "[Mm]isc" (not determined, could 
be X Consortium/X.Org), their family name is the same: "[Ff]ixed". Their weight 
is also the same, normal  is medium. What makes a difference is the value of 
"ja" (for Japanese) in the field for additional typographic styles. This makes 
sense in combination with the ISO 10646-1 (or Unicode) font encoding. It is 
possible that this setting, "ja", reserves a bit too big cells for the 
characters, cells into which Japanese could fit (which a bit bigger than those 
for Latin scripts). The setting for average width (120 vs. 80, i.e. wide vs. 
compact) confirms this. GNU Emacs 24.x seems to love Japanese…
