I am far from knowing all the Kanji, but I experienced this with Katakana and Hiragana as well when I was in Japan and now with Kanji.
A lot of writing on shops, in restaurant on TV, etc… are either stylized or hand written. Am I the only one who feel completely hopeless in front of those kind of writings and struggles (sometimes not managing) to read them. Even though you might realized later that you knew all the Kanji or kana use?
I guess my question is: If it true for others, did that become easier with time or are you still struggling with those?
Thanks in advance.
