Last week Priya and I used flashcards to learn some kanji. Below are the main 14 that we looked at with their on reading (first line, katakana), kun reading (second line, hiragana), and definition (third line, English).
I have omitted rōmaji readings because I am getting to the point where I find rōmaji actively harmful to learning/remembering Japanese, though I will probably continue to use it in other future entries on this blog, for accessibility to my readers unfamiliar with hiragana and katakana.
Onto the kanji!
