Henh. They're expanding the jouyou kanji list. As I review the current 2000, painfully trying to learn to envisage the upper ones and/ or remember how to write them. (Writing Japanese is, famously, use it or lose it, and some of these I think I never had in the first place. Visual memory is soooo not me.)
OTOH I'm pleased to observe there's nothing in the newcomers that I can't *read*, which is good if reading's what you're about.
(Am also taken with a comm called aramatheydidn't, even if looks to be generally as vacuous as its Over Here counterpart.)
