I would venture a guess that the standard population finds ways of deviating from the prescribed. Perhaps the Japanese, having a government prescribed sets of kanji, are less lenient in their ways than us, but I leave judgement of that to those in the know. Either way, despite rules and regulations, for each letter, each stroke there is a different human doing it a different way each and every time.

And then there are "fad" writing styles, like the round character style that was apparently big with jr. high and high school girls awhile back.
In short, handwriting is a whole can of worms in Japanese.
