Response to Monster Kanji -- you will get over it

Yeah, she's the best part of the program.

The character is "ran" (Chinese reading) and refers to a fabulous mythical bird, but it's sometimes used in imperial contexts. It is not really a kaii kanji (kanji composed of directly meaningful radicals) although the existence of "tori" in the bottom position helps. There is no use for this in Japanese I'm pretty sure it's Chinese only, like many higher stroke count kanji.

It's times like this I am reminded that Nihongo is how I got into Jgirls in the first place ...
