Synopsis

Have you longed to see certain politicians get the ax? This kanji enables that to happen! The Japanese mainly associate 迭 with political shakeups (so you'll learn to say, "Minister Tanaka’s 'resignation' was actually a dismissal"), but the essay also includes sentences about nonpolitical firings. You'll find 迭 in Amazon Japan synopses of episodes of several TV shows (e.g., House of Cards). 

Note: There is no game with which to practice vocabulary because the star kanji appears in very few terms, and the game won't work without a minimum number of vocabulary words.
