Mojibakeru – 文字化ける

Bandai, a Japanese toy company, will release a new series of trading figures in the form of kanji that transforms into its animal counterpart.

The product is called “Mojibakeru” [もじバケる] which is a compound word of “Moji” [文字] meaning “character” and “Bakeru” [化ける] meaning “to change into.”

I think this might be an excellent way to remember kanji, at least those for animals. There will initially be 6 kanji to collect and will cost a mere 105 yen each, but more would be great!
