do you have a list of some you've already recognized to complete/correct it?

I'd only done the first few before I realized it would make more sense to crowd-source this while I translation check Magic Knight Rayearth instead. Here's the few I did.

0100=袋
0101=酒
0102=激
0103=辛
0104=仙
0105=人
0106=魔
0107=導
0108=竜
0109=牙
010A=尻
010B=尾

Thank you! You've helped two projects by helping with one. I appreciate it.

EDIT: FYI, a side benefit of this process is that it gets at least two sets of eyes on the kanji. :)

These were very accurate, but I did find two misidentified. Please let me know if you notice any more.

I was a little puzzled. "Doesn't filler already know kanji? ;D "
But that makes sense.

Few years ago the http://maggie.ocrgrid.org/nhocr/ online Japanese OCR helped me lot to complete Wizardry6 japanese Tile set.
Its works best if you convert bmp to black text with white background, other colours could be confused the algorithm (it works but less character recognised)

Your timing could not have been more appropriate. I was just working on a script with a bunch of kanji and was lamenting the fact that my Japanese OCR software is lost in a box somewhere, and probably won't work on Win 10. I'll try this online version and let you know how it went.

Heh, I wish I knew all those kanji. I can probably type out about half of them by sight. The rest I'd have to look up by radical.

No worries. The same thing happens to me.

This worked out perfectly. I'll definitely use this in the future. Thanks! It seems about as accurate as the software I used to use. I wouldn't be surprised if it's the same software on the back end. You do need to enlarge the images by about 100%. I'm checking the kanji and correcting the 25% or so that are incorrect, but it's a big time saver. There are just a ton of kanji for this particular game.

Well, software application. It's apparently a study aid for passing your driver's license test in Japan circa the early 90s for your Game Gear. I have no idea how this exists, but here we are.

You could always just use Google's built-in OCR. Upload the images to a Google Drive folder, right click on them in Google Drive and open with Google Docs. It'll OCR things automatically for you that way. Here's the result of the first of the above images:

@@袋酒激辛仙人 魔導竜牙尻尾角草 毒消笛卵壺象矢明 玉黄金必殺酸素防 火壁方向石魚福人 体力回復食水声光 中元气少苦肩息出 死最大半分英高幸

Not without errors, but definitely better than 75% and pretty simple to use. I didn't modify the colors or resolution of the image and just uploaded it as is.
