  1. Hey, these tutorials are great and the pictures are helpful in remembering the letters. Question: Do you think stoke order while writing is important, or is it ok to write a letter however you want?

      I think a right stroke order will make you write kana faster.

    2. I’m a little late to reply, but correct stroke order in the kana will help you memorize kanji, as most of the kana are just simplified kanji or radicals of kanji. If you don’t remember correct stroke order for the kana you might memorize certain kanji incorrectly, which might present a few difficulties, as while it might seem like stroke order is more to remember, it’s actually less, because you can basically just memorize the radicals in a kanji instead of memorizing all 2200+ joyou kanji as their own thing.

    3. Might need to take note on that.
