JLPT Kanji - Printer-friendly Lists

Here are lists of the kanji required for levels 4, 3 and 2 of the JLPT.
  • The compact format will use up the least space when printing, but won't leave you any room for your own notes.
  • The vertical format lists the kanji..... wait for it.... vertically. So it's not exactly tree-friendly, but you do get the various on and kun readings of each kanji, as well as an English meaning or two, plus space to write your own notes, practice your calligraphy, jot down your shopping list, whatever.
  • I've arranged the 755 JLPT Level 2 kanji in 30 batches of 25 characters each (though the last batch contains 30 kanji) as the full vertical list is rather long - about 55 pages. The batch system ought to make it easier to keep track of your studies, and each batch should print neatly onto two sheets of A4. ATTENTION! I have found (and fixed) a single error in Batch 9 of the JLPT Level 2 kanji. The kanji for "yellow" was replicated in place of the kanji for "effect". Please accept my humble apologies. The offending (corrected) kanji are highlighted by a couple of boxes in the lists in which they appear.
I hope you find these helpful in organising your own study of kanji. Feel free to copy and distribute them to your friends or fellow students - but please let them know where you got them from: https://kanjisite.tripod.com/
Anyone wanting to use them commercially (er, how?) should let me know first, though - thanks.
