The kanji reminds me of a guy walking witha hat on, so as i write it i say "natsu fast guy, take off your hat it's summer and it's hot out"

Thank you kindly for supplying the kanji

Natsu uses dragon slayer FIRE magic which is hot just like SUMMER

Any fun/good mnemonics for the seasons?

It's far fetched but somehow I remember :

Natsu

Nacho

Mexico

Hot

Summer

Summer is hot and I don't have AC: It's "natsu" (nuts).
Winter is "fuyu"-reezing (freezing).
"Aki" (a key) to autumn fun is playing in piles of leaves.
In the spring, I say "haru" (hello) to blooming flowers.

Amazing, thanks!!

Only fuyu and aki are the ones that haven't been used as protagonist names by the ravemaster author


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GranManuel1

Give him two more mangas. ;)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aki-kun

He already used them.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/deviousrat

He did? I thought it was just Fairy Tail and Rave Master or something else

That's great, so helpful


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LeeChrysaf

That's brilliant

That heisig method works well for the kana too it seems xD


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TheWeebtaku

Natsu Dragneel is as hot as summer, maybe even hotter! .... .... .... Thats how I remeber it XD!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/deviousrat

XD but I have to say true tho >/////<


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ashley281589

It is bad that the only way I answered this correctly is from relating it to Fairy Tail


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ZarghamAhm1

My way of remembering: FAIRY TAIL. All hail Hiro Mashima for making a whole anime just to help me remember the japanese word for summer


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Trevor_Fontaine

na tsu -> "not too" hot = summer


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Michel176874

Fairy tail in duolingo


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Saeumii

Outside of fairy tail references, this one can be memorized by knowing that seeds sprout in the summer, and some (or maybe all) seeds are nuts.

natsu no sora miagete niranda = I looked up and stared at the summer sky


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/rainbow3788

This word always aggravates me cuz I feel like it's not finished

Natsu

Natsuki (from Doki Doki literature club)

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/fujinana

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JesrielIll

    how to read this one?.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ganders3

    You'd have to be natsu to not like summer!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Corinne226208

    I JUST REALIZED THE NATSU FROM FAIRYTAIL NAME MEANS SUMMER...HES A FIRE DRAGON SLAYER. THE JOKE WAS RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LaMegami

    FAIRYTALE!!! なつ, OUR LOVABLE DRAGON! Thats how I remember this :3


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/rashid599797

    The fact it says natsu ...well natsu is coming


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/rashid599797

    I liked gray but natsu is good


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/samrats

    If you watch anime "fairy tail"..natsu is the name of main character who controls fire. :D

      I think of it as "not snow". Helps me remember.
