Those are so far and few in between though.
It seems as though only those that contradict existence are allowed to call themselves heroes.

Hmm... I still think that hiragana is easier than katakana....
What is curious is that some kanas from katakana appear as pieces of kanjis :P

Have you heard about the saying that goes something like "drunk people and kids tell no lies"? Well, that's just a fallacy.

Hahaha. Yeah and, unlike you, I'm still very much alive! *points at Zwei's title*
Anyway. I started with some kanjis... only 4 for now... and I can say that, at this moment, the weirdest I've encountered is the shinkansen one. 3 kanjis with quite a good number of strokes each... I wonder how is it that people manage to learn over a 1000 of those doodles...

how you do it is you live immersed in it. spend the first, oh, 6-9 years of your life in japan, and it's down.

this is why chinese is easier to learn.
Whenever I go on, everyone leaves the Tsukihime forums. 'Cause I just fail like that.

That is a statement beyond false, Chinese is hard as hell to learn, because you have a uncountable amount of dialects. Mandarin and Cantonese are the 2 main ones but every place changes those two main dialects to their own.

@abscess: it's easy to learn kanji you'd use everyday, such as places you'd go, man and woman, numbers and such.

That and those are the ones you should start with :D.

not the verbal part. the verbal part is absolute crap. i was born into it and i still can't understand non-perfect mando. i'm talking about the written. the written's easy to learn.

True, though there are some words that I can use when talking with my friends that I can't use when writing/chatting to them.
