kanji-a-day:

100/2000

JLPT: N2

School Grade: 4th (9 years old)

This character combines car with a (a wa-shaped crown radical - though I always call it a cap or a roof). So if you think about how a tank is basically just a beefed up car (a car with a really tough roof, perhaps?) it’s easy to create the mental imagery of an army.

kanji-a-day:

99/2000

JLPT: N4

School Grade: 2nd (7 years old)

This character combines(the water radical) and (every). I always remembered it by thinking “I want to go the the sea every day this summer.”

Also, a quick note about氵: the first two strokes are made downwards, left to right, but the third stroke is made moving upwards!

kanji-a-day:

97/2000

JLPT: N3

School Grade: 3rd (8 years old)

This character is made up of tree and eye. Because another meaning of this character is each other, Kanji Look and Learn suggests remembering it this way: If you fix your eye on the tree, you will be facing each other.

kanji-a-day:

96/2000

JLPT: N3

School Grade: 2nd (7 years old)

This character was formerly written 當, which is a combination of a variation of 尚 a character meaning “furthermore” and 田 rice field. In its modern form it can be thought of as a variant of 小 small and ヨ a hand.

I honestly was able to remember this character because I use 本当に way too much, so I was writing it a lot.

kanji-a-day:

95/2000

JLPT: N4

School Grade: 2nd (7 years old)

This character is made up of rice field and heart.

I remembered it at first by thinking “I’m in the rice field thinking of someone that I love.”

kanji-a-day:

94/2000

JLPT: N5

School Grade: 2nd (7 years old)

The origins of this character are somewhat obscure, but I honestly always remembered it as being katakana ラ (ra) under a roof. This means nothing in terms of meaning or pronunciation but it worked, I guess…

Hey guys~

I’m sorry for not having gotten my life together yet… I’m still going to have to reblog old posts for at least one more week. I’m actually going on vacation this week so I won’t be on my computer at all for the next seven days. I’ve set up a queue so there should still be “repeatedkanji” posts every day.

I’m hoping that once I get back from my trip I can buckle down and get this blog going properly again! That’s the plan, anyway~

Sorry again and thank you all for being patient with me :)
