Broom icon.svg A user suggests that this Japanese entry be cleaned up, giving the reason: "Readings need splitting out -- for one, りょうげ is goon, れいき is kan'on. Also, the goon reading appears to be obsolete, and isn't listed in some dictionaries such as the DJR -- see Kotobank page at https://kotobank.jp/word/霊気".
Please see the discussion on Requests for cleanup(+) for more information and remove this template after the problem has been dealt with.
