シャドーハウス (Beginner Book Club)

Wow, how does WaniKani not have ?? 拭く is such a common word, perhaps obvious by the fact that it’s listed in your table four times! (though also biased by the content of the manga I’m sure)

is often written in kana, but I have seen it in kanji and it’s good to know.

繕う (the usage on page 117) shows up a lot, though I don’t think I’ve seen any other words with that kanji.

恰好 is fairly common, but also often written as 格好, which is in WaniKani.

The ones on page 159 can obviously be ignored. :joy:

The only one of the bunch (other than the page 159 ones) that I didn’t know was , but it has furigana so that’s nice.

I was wondering the same thing.

Although, looking at other manga series I’ve read it’s actually a very uncommon word/kanji apparently (from what I read). In the one manga series I’ve read where it’s used a lot, one of the two main characters wears glasses.

I learned this one from ごちうさ with シャロ (near the end of volume one).

I’m not familiar with it, but doing a search of my manga, all uses of this kanji appear to be this word.

I’ve seen the word quite a bit in other places, but not usually with the kanji; though… I have seen it often enough with the kanji, that I recognized it right before I instinctively Yomichan’d it. :stuck_out_tongue:

Besides 拭く there’s also 拭う. They are both quite common I think. Doing a search through the books on my computer, I found 224 instances of 拭 across 33 books across 5 series (out of 38 books and 7 series).
