Compared to the one in Battle Zeque Den, this is nothing ;) No native speaker I asked could read that shit, only assume.

But yeah, it's obviously 富. It's pretty typical "cursive" writing. Maybe you should practice writing Kanji, it only benefits your reading skills as well.

I’m not convinced Battle Zeque Den’s kanji were imitating a Japanese style, personally :)

If you only saw how I write in my own language )))) I wish I had more time to practice though...
But generally I don't have any problems with printed kanji reading )

I think my handwriting sucks, but a lot of people compliment me on it. Go figure.

I’m not convinced Battle Zeque Den’s kanji were imitating a Japanese style, personally :)

A friend (he's quite the Kanji enthusiast, so he really wanted to know it as well) of mine even asked a Chinese coworker. She said it looked like "发" (-> 髪) and that 发束 actually was a word. But it doesn't make any sense now with 天涯, and I don't think they would use the Chinese simplified form in a Japanese game ^^

Most people agreed that it probably is 収, though.
