Font Bad Rendering and is Missing Some Character

I just booted my laptop normally and suddenly, some character is missing in my font and appears to have bad rendering. the problem is fixed when i select my font again, but the problem happens again after reboot, its annoying to select font everytime after booting up.

edit : after fresh reinstall, the problem still persist. at first it was fine but after reboot the font became weird again. i think it has something to do with the 21.0 update. because in version a 19 and 20 my system is fine. Any help would be appreciated.

Steps to recreate

  1. I use font A and then reboot, after reboot font A is buggy
  2. to fix the missing the missing character i have to change to font B, after reboot, font B is buggy and when i change to font A the problem is gone, but after reboot, font A is missing some character again (goes back to step 1)

Try typing this in a terminal: fc-cache -f -v. It happened the fonts went buggy as well when I installed new ones through creating a .config/fonts folder and locating them in there. xos4 Terminus was not in use and was replaced by a fallback font.
