    Maybe set your Unicode to JP first? Try that

    I had this problem too. I believe the authors for the program skipped unicode implementation because it was too complex or time consuming (you can find comments suggesting this in the release notes or somewhere).

    I set my system locale to Japanese and the file names are still garbled.

    It's a bit problematic when you have many files with Japanese names and the program only outputs a few since they all have similar file lengths... and of course this will corrupt your ROM if you try to repack it because of the missing files.

    For me, it was Fire Emblem: Awakening.

    It has Japanese file names even in the North American version.

    Because they are Japanese, and that is their native language...

    You can open romfs.bin in hex editor and temporally change filenames into english and rename files back when they are extracted.
