    Sorry, the image is too blurry for me. The first character may be "体"(からだ). Can you by any chance read the yomigana on top of kanji?

    I think the second is 間 (あいだ), but only from context and because the first character of the yomigana looks like either あ or お. 体 actually seems like it would fit for the first one, too.

    That section of the page is defining a sports term that evidently doesn't have an English equivalent (at least according to several Japanese blog posts I found on the topic). Judging by the definitions I can find for the term, however, the above makes the most sense.

    Re: [JP] The Official Kanji Ask-for-Help Thread


    This is from a manga I'm translating. One character is doing a snarky comment on another's horrible singing voice. For the life of me, I can't tell what some of the kanji are.
    What I can read is: 「オマエ (免?)? ?(々?)は 本当に ダメだな」

    For the most part, I'm just having a bit of difficulty with the four kanji after 'omae'. I tried sharpening it and adjusting the levels, but it doesn't help much. The first kanji seems like it has 心 at the bottom, but no matches from midori. The second almost seems to have 虫 in the bottom-right. Other than that I haven't the faintest clue @.@.

    Anyways, help is appreciated.

    Re: [JP] The Official Kanji Ask-for-Help Thread

    Ah, thanks again Mikkih ^_^. I was trying too hard to find out why I couldn't recognize the first kanji when the second would have given me the clue. It makes perfect sense given the character, so you got it right. Well, I guess I still have a bit of a ways to go in kanji recognition, but I'm getting there on the translation front.
    There is a fine line between bad and good, and an even finer line between good and great.
    Even the most impossible dreams can become possible with time.

    Does anybody recognize these kanji ?
    Although being a unclear image, somebody translated it as 'kan'.

    Thanks mikkih, now that finally makes sense. Now if someone would explain these alternative kanji to MS IME.

    I also think we should be able to type all the abbreviated characters listed on Wiki (link) for example. You can't display the character unlike ㋮, so I guess 广マ is the only way to type.
