Japanese fonts display oddly compared to Chrome


Description of the issue:
On some websites, Japanese articles have a strange look to them as if some parts are using Japanese font but the kanji (chinese characters) are using a separate font.

The text looks fine in Chrome, but strange in Brave.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
Go to a page that happens to have the affected issue such as a Japanese app on the Google Play store or an article on Inoreader.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
In Brave: https://imgur.com/eg3DKKl
In Chrome: https://imgur.com/PiqphGB

Expected result:
Brave should display Japanese fonts the same way that Chrome does, or at least the Japanese fonts should look consistent.

Reproduces how often:
Doesn’t happen on all Japanese sites. For now I have noticed articles on inoreader that are in Japanese and Google Play store Japanese app pages.

Brave Version(about:brave):
Version 0.59.34 Chromium: 72.0.3626.81 (Official Build) (64-bit) on Windows 10 version 1803

Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):
If live release means the latest stable, yes.
