Thanks to Satoru Shinagawa for the stroke animations.
I'm Justin. I moved to Japan in 2002 and I'm married to my Japanese wife (lovingly called "Spellchecker"). I've taken the JLPT tests up to L1 (yes, I was there) using this app. I speak, read and write Japanese fluently and I'm an overactive developer who really should relax a little more.
