    Hey, I was wondering if the stroke-order-animation really shows hyaku as it seems to actually look a whole lot more like haku (white) I somehow miss the stroke at the very top…

      You are absolutely right. I picked the wrong video. I will immediately fix it.
      Thank you very much for notifying me.

    Nicolas, it’s alright, I was just lucky to remember that one, I’m an absolute beginner in Japanese and a japanese friend (actually the one who convinced me to start learning Japanese for real) always remarked that when I start learning Kanji I shouldn’t get too confused with those two as they are pretty alike. Just thought I’d let you know.
    Great site btw, I really love your Kakijun-Animations, they help a whole lot!
    I am going to link to this website once I have the new layout running on mine…

      Thanks Petra 🙂
      I hope much more contents within the next 2 to 3 months including a cover page to better lead students through what is available.
