Animation to help remember 止 and 正

A quick animation I threw together in about 30 minutes to help remember the 止 and 正 kanji!

I like the concept, very helpful! The only thing I would recommend (if you’re not looking for constructive criticism please stop reading and I’m sorry) is that instead of 止 becoming smaller and replaced by 正 getting bigger (it is a little jarring to the eye when they overlap), you keep the kanji the same size as it is in second 5 and just shorten the third stroke of 止 and add the stroke on top. Maybe have the stop sign turn green when 正 comes up, too? Just a thought. Thank you for making this!

I’m glad you like it, and thank you for the advice! These are some good recommendations and I’ll see if I can modify it to include those changes when I get a chance.

Yeah, but why do something the simple way when you can do it the time-consuming and convoluted way? :smiley:
