    -_-; I posted more than that in my last comment 😦 I put “The ‘ka’ row/column is my favorite of them all. I’ve always wondered what handwritten kana looks like written by a japanese person, or someone else, on an every day basis. Maybe you could show us some examples in later lessons or something ^_^”

    Just a simple little sample of writing. I’m not really sure how to explain it. 🙂 A long time ago I used to watch a school’s satelite broadcast of their japanese class, and they had this really cool japanese lady who went with them and did the samples of writing the hiragana and katakana out. It was just really fun watching her write them out. 🙂

    why does it have ki cut off, i thought it was almost rounded but open in the end of the semi circle… reminding me of a sixteenthh note….

    it’s just a matter of style. or maybe its because its caligraphy (?). when i write i normally dont connect them as well 🙂
    same applies to さ. try writing them fast.

    i guess that’s true thanks, now my next question is, where is the rest of the alphabet in this style

  12. shiRoi says:
