I like 禁 - A spooky altar in the woods, of course it’s forbidden
If you ever teach English in Japan, you may get students asking you this… I always go with 山 - it’s simple and on brand.
I always go with 星 - its cute and simple enough to write if I have to “prove” it to my students
The kids get a kick out of mine. Bodily functions transcend language barriers!
I think mine would be 紙. No idea why though. Maybe the fact that it looks cool to me.
My second favorite would be 妹, cause I am precisely that.
I really like 者, it’s just fun to write.
楽 has a fun* and positive vibe to it and that’s how it’s used; music, paradise, enjoyment, pleasure, ease, optimism.
*especially if you write it by hand, it’s fun to write.
I’m a fan of these. They’re clever.
So far I like 外 best because of the mnemonic I had to remember. Every time I come across this kanji, I remember the god-forsaken evening toes that catch fire.
Oh and also 午 because summoning this kanji means sacrificing children at a playground as Godzilla wills it.
藤 is great aesthetically, as is 蘭 (I just kinda like flowers and trees )
It is simple, looks cool, I like the readings and I love winter (also I’m born in winter).
Very fond of 愛. Pretty obvious pick but it’s beautiful, has a lovely meaning, it’s pretty useful, and it’s really fun to write. I’ve considered using it as my Japanese name if I do a homestay in a couple years.
My favorite is 死 because I’ve seen it more than twice in Sekiro.
One of my favorite kanji I like to whip out is 鬮. An absolutely nutty one if I do say so myself, I’ve honestly not encountered many kanji that come close to its “weirdness.” Perhaps 釁, but that just looks like a blob on most screens, lest it not render at all.
I really like 死
Maybe because I’ve seen it a million times playing Sekiro
Ha, okay I didn’t see this post but glad I’m not the only one!
Heh. It looks kinda like an amidakuji.
I like a lot of those mentioned already. I also really like this kanji compound 虫歯, not for it’s meaning but for its look, satisfying to write, for the wierdness of the idea of a tooth bug, it amuses me for some reason…
The 恥 in はずかしい --I can easily imagine when you’re embarrassed and your heart is pounding in your bright red ears!
And 嘘 cause lies are just that; just a mouth with no true meaning or substance coming out of it😆
