I think this book is not the right way to approach studying kanji but it could maybe be useful in addition to a proper book? I've had more success in learning them and remembering them with ease when I took the approach of learning the radicals well in the first place and then building on. An app called Kanji Study or something (can't remember right now) was the best in that regard.

So you've more or less mastered hiragana and katakana. Piece of cake, right? Now kanji...well, kanji is a different beast entirely! Unsure how to take that next step? Kanji Starter to the rescue! I have tried studying kanji before with textbooks and hand-made flashcards, but it wasn't until I picked up this book that I actually began to have fun learning the characters! As we all know, when you enjoy doing something,you are bound to do it more, right?

How does this book work? A common kanji chara
