This one always makes me happy, looks like this happy little fella is going for a walk. (However, the bf thinks it looks like a shower head, and now I cannot unsee it).


#3


I don’t know, it’s just so cute and sweet. I always think of Legolas when I see this one c:


#4


It’s easy.


#5

Simply because it’s supposedly the Kanji with the highest number of strokes. have fun writing that.


#6


Because it’s actually sort of based on an actual heart.


#7

Eh, those ones that just combine one kanji a bunch of times to make something like that aren’t that interesting to me. It’s just this (龍) 4 times.

For a kanji that has a ton of strokes that you’ll actually learn here, I like

Aesthetically, I like kanji that include 心, and I am particularly fond of 志, not just because it includes that, but because of the meaning and because it has a nice long kunyomi reading.


#8

In China, at some point they used 占占点 as a secret way of googling for the Tiananmen Square massacre because it looks like a tank running over little people…


#9

Probably 金 or 玉 because money and sports, no relation. Definitely not testicle jokes

Being a tad more serious, it’s probably 王 since I like the whole connection between heaven, man, and earth. It was hearing about that that made me less apprehensive about learning Chinese/Japanese characters in the first place.

I can’t really explain why I like it so much, but I find the shape of it alluring, seductive even. O_O it’s quite mesmerizing.


#11

I’ve always like 水 and 虫 a lot.

One, I like water (absolutely love swimming). Two I’ve always just thought 水 looked pretty and elegant.
And I don’t know why, but I’ve always thought 虫 looked cute and sounded cute: むし.


#12

Really like writing 語
夢 I think this one is quite lovely.
傘 And this one is so cute it actually looks like an umbrella.


#13

Fine, a more serious answer is 雨 or 花. There’s just something about the simplicity that I like.


#14

Well wanted to type it in the rules not to say 一 but i didn’t think that anyone may say that and deleted it ;/

#18

#19

Not really 愛, but 恋 in my 心 is already OK.

夢 is also nice. Also, 炎.

BTW, I like 龍.
