Table of Katakana Characters (Maru-moji)
Table 2. Syllables with Voiced Consonants and 'P'
Maru-moji ('rounded letters') have been a favourite among young people for
many years. They are of special interest to manga and anime
fans. But they're not recommended for learners unless you (1) want to annoy
hell out of your teacher or (2) want to destroy any chance of ever learning
to write Japanese properly.
To see the hiragana equivalent of each character, pass your cursor over the top. (Sorry, does not work on mobile devices.)
