I don't agree with the advice given.
I don't see this as a slant per se. It looks more like a digitized version of a typeface.

That said, the glyphs do appear to be quite rough (as they were digitized).

I would prefer to replace the range with a proper design.

This is from Jacob Poon's report of 2007-10,

Glyphs in Ethiopic region (U+1200-137F) in medium font are incorrectly slanted.
The bug does not exist in other font variants and families. These glyphs should be straighened up. The already slanted glyphs should be moved to the italic font.
