well you can also learn it the Otaku way by listening to 千本桜 for 100+ times ^^
And this is what i like, a person which doesn’t have a one favorite kanji but has a lot of them
you’re just like me… muehehe
My favorite kanji are: 不 and 無 just because they are so simple and versitile and (at least until now) always have the same reading and meaning. Which is also why I usually don’t even need the mnemonic to remember, just not… or nothing…
You’ve already studied 無事 and 不器用… I guess they’re not difficult to remember as exceptions.
Certainly simpler than other kanji
It has an absurdly long kun-reading c:
lol, that kunyomi is just a phrase, haha
Usually when you see long kunyomis it comes from taking a compound verb and putting it into one kanji. That one is just “lots of springs”
I’m also a 葉 lover, and my other favorite is 呼.
I find them both very calm and gentle-looking.
I think my favorite is 森 because the meaning is so logical and for some reason, it makes me think of a relaxing deep teal blue-green color. The reading has a relaxing sound to it as well. I also like 羽 because it looks like feathers in a down pillow.
it reminds me of detailed feathers flying freely in the sky.
also means Purpose! And that is encouraging.
would sincerely tattoo it
I think it’s another of these “Google: longest kanji/hardest kanji” and type it here ;d
Number one is 霧. It simply means “fog”, but I love its intricate aesthetics. The main reason, though, is that it’s in the name of the main character of one of my favorite manga series: 霧亥 (Killy, from “Blame!”).
A close call would be 機 (machine), because it does look like a menacing steampunk machine of sorts, full of pipes, cogs, and spewing smoke. Also in a way reminds me of a tank.
But I also happen to like 脳 (brain). It’s relatively simple to write and I find the human brain to be an organ that’s really interesting to look at.
I really like 木,林 森 because of how literal their meanings are in relationship to their composition.
I like 好, but it think 今 is now my favourite.
I hate 五, everything about it feels wrong. In most fonts it looks like the number 6 with a speed trail behind it. I also find it awkward to write.
It’s like the evolved form of a Pokémon
四 -> 西 -> 酒
Water just looks like a neat little add-on when it’s a radical, so it still looks like one “thing”, unlike, say, 校
Also looks like a bottle splashing liquid around, and many Izakaya places have fun with its design on their shop signs.
I also like 宇 because it looks like a version of 字 designed by IKEA.
My favourite is 雨. I love rainy days sitting inside and looking out through the window and this kanji represents that perfectly. I’m also a fan of 傘. It’s another rainy day related one and it’s just such a cute kanji and perfectly pictorial.
電 because it looks like 雷 with a little cord to plug it in.
I like 金, since it looks like a wishing well you put pennies in, makes it easy to remember.
I like the kanji 空 for some reason. I just think it’s memorable and visually appealing.
