I am using the handwritten kanji database, it contains svg files of each kanji character. The svg files gives the shape and direction of each stroke in a kanji. This interests me because I read and write Chinese, and although kanji’s are a little different, the general idea of the importance of stroke order and form is still inherent. I never imagined such a database would exist. With this info, I want to combine kanjis that convey similar meaning to a mega-kanji, I think it’d be interesting to look at, especially for those who understand the language.
