Oh, now you got me curious. What software do you use to study kanji? I have a DS and pretty much all released games from all regions that I can transfer to an SD card and use with the DS. But the only kanji-software I found were crossword-puzzles and those are bit too advanced for me! (but I haven't bothered trying out all the japanese games with titles I don't understand... I have tried both of those manner-programs but I didn't understand much without a dictionary... heh)

Thumbs up on getting sober btw!


a good program is called 漢検DS (kanten DS). if you can't find that one, I can recommend some others as well. . .


Hm, I'm guessing it's the same as Zaidan Houjin Nippon Kanji Nouryoku Kentei Kyoukai Kounin KanKen DS... not sure which is correct... ken or ten... =)

Now if I could only get that car to stand still so I could actually read I might learn something... =D


oh yeah, it's kanken i think. gomen ne. i usually just do the drills and try to level up. that taxi pisses me off. i also swear by my ds dictionary, called kanjisonomama rakubikijiten. it is amazing.

Sudoku Print Puzzles

Unfortunately, Many Japanese educational games for the Nintendo DS will never hit the US stores.
