The 236th essay has posted! Essay 1627 on 迭 (to replace someone) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

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).

Also, Ulrike has produced a batch of new-monics (which are free!):

室 (136: room)
店 (178: shop)
点 (179: point)
占 (1491: to possess)
粘 (1679: sticky)
