I retract this comment.  It looks like UTF-8 issues has been resolved as
I used to experience.  I can see man pages in UTF-8 for English OK as a
quick look.  Even ja_JP.UTF-8 looks good.

But there may be monir issues left for man.

aptitude now has no issues with CJK with UTF-8 since it was disabled and
forced to use english.

Oh, you may want to check "pager" with update-alternatives.  

pager - status is manual.
 link currently points to /usr/bin/lv
/bin/more - priority 50
/usr/bin/less - priority 77
 slave pager.1.gz: /usr/share/man/man1/less.1.gz
/usr/bin/w3m - priority 25
 slave pager.1.gz: /usr/share/man/man1/w3m.1.gz
/usr/bin/lv - priority 80
 slave pager.1.gz: /usr/share/man/man1/lv.1.gz
Current `best' version is /usr/bin/lv.
