Apparently, these sentences are called Pangrams and Wikipedia has a long article about them with lots of examples of pangrams in non-Latin alphabets.

Too bad most posters won't even read the thread to see your link, and they will just keep posting everything that's already inside that Wiki article.

the phonetic hiragana characters. What's amazing is that it accomplishes the feat with no repeats. Take that, you
foxy line with four o's! -_^


Thank you for posting this! This is something that I have never thought of before but it is really fascinating to think
