Apologies for taking so long to upload this! Anyway, this is the new poster I sold for AX11. I think I have a few extra left...

Definitely the most difficult of the bunch simply because it was nearly double the amount of characters! And because I didn't want to cheat and use already Japanese words for the examples.

This is based off of Himaruya's series Axis Powers Hetalia and (almost) all the words have a direct reference to the manga! Do you lemembe' them arr?

I wrote out the stuff on this chart, and I'm using it to help me learn Japanese. Thank's for making this. I get that hiragana and katakana came from kanji, but if they are used for word pronunctiation, then why didn't the Japanese never desided to get rid of kanji and start writing in only the other two alphabets? It would be alot easier then having to learn thousands of characters.
Well, actually it would be quite difficult to read and understand what is written without kanji. For example, try reading this ははははいしゃ and tne same sentence written with kanji 母は歯医者. Which one is easier to understand?Actually it's easy to read if there is furigana above kanji, but without furigana it's really disastrous. So, we MUST learn kanji.

Well they don't use nearly as many as the Chinese have to, I'd say a few hundred would be more than enough to get you through Japanese. XD I don't know for sure why they never changed completely, but you can really read a lot faster with kanji because you are recognizing the shape for a word instead of spelling it out one by one. There are no spaces in Japanese writing separating words, so using kanji is a good way to divide sentence into readable chunks. Also, you must admit that it makes calligraphy a lot prettier!
Awesome. Do you speak Japanese? I would love to learn it. It sounds very pretty to me! <3
