Textfugu also teaches kanji decently. I shied away from kanji for years but ended up using the ‘Remembering the Kanji’ section. I can`t really change techniques right now, but it can be said that Koichi has done a good job here. It is akin to Heisig’s because the kanji is built up over periods. A simple way to remember the sometimes difficult kanji, and a positive rhythm is found when learning in this way. It’s great because textbooks tend to show you hundreds of kanji for revision, but will not offer any manner in which to learn or recall them later on. They also seems to be in a strange order in many textbooks, so Textfugu keeps it simple with handy tips on remembering.

It’s not the best way to learn to read Japanese, but it’s a good start.
