View topic - Favorite Kanji
Kun'yomi: Naka, Uchi, Ata(ru)
It reminds me of my early curiosity in Japanese when I was several years younger. I've seen that Kanji since I was a small child watching anime. Even though I never knew what it was called, what it meant, or how to pronounce it, I thought it looked cool.
Edited to provide reading information.

But since we're here, my favourite Kanji are the easy ones, like 一、二 etc coz basically I'm lazy
I also really like writing one's with 心in them. eg 愛、忘、忍、念、恋 など など For some reason, it feels good when wrting them. The pen flows nicely, or something. Sounds wishy-washy, I know, but someone might understand what I mean!

Its kun'yomi is "hiku", which if written with this kanji means "to run over", eg. 彼は車に轢かれた (Kare wa kuruma ni hikareta / he got run over by a car). It's not really the shape of the kanji or the spectacular meaning, but more the fact that its made up of 車 (kuruma - car), and 楽 (tanoshii - fun/pleasant) which makes it interesting. It kind of makes you wonder, hur hur.
(I know 楽 can also mean "music", and that that part is only used to indicate the pronunciation anyway - on'yomi is "reki" - but thinking like that kind of takes the "fun" out of the character) (pun not intended :p)

たいと - the appearance of a dragon in flight, with a whopping 84 strokes.
Sadly, I can't type it, because the IME is stupid. I don't think this character even exists in the character bank...

Sorry, it can make your eyes sore... B)
It's the old style 漢字 of 亀 (かめ tortoise, turtle - a holy animal in ancient China for its long life)
I found its stroke order is shown here
Click the kanji at 序Z画 on the page of the site -- but unfortunately, it seems to work right only by Internet Explorer...
