I traced a kaisho-style glyph for this release.

Mincho and gothic style glyphs are very different from handwritten kanji. These styles, although widely available, are not appropriate for teaching stroke-order. Kaisho (handwritten) and kyokasho (textbook) are the two styles commonly used for teaching stroke-order in Japanese schools and textbooks.


I decided against animating stroke-order diagrams.

Normal human memory can remember a sequence of seven items. This is why telephone numbers (XXX-123-4567) do not exceed seven digits. Since most kanji have more than seven strokes, presenting stroke-order diagrams as an animated sequence is not a good idea--by the time the last stroke in animated, you will have forgotten the first few strokes!
