For an example word which uses the ほ- reading:

火影 [ほかげ/hokage]: ① firelight; ② shadows or forms moving in firelight.

"火 (4 strokes) Meaning: Fire" ... For a second there, I thought we were going to get a lesson about the Fire Nation.

There are many Japanese anime characters using the "火".

For example,

ONE PIECE …HIKEN NO ACE/火拳のエース

NARUTO…KATON NO JUTSU /火遁の術

Fullmetal Alchemist…Honō no Renkinjutsushi/焔の錬金術師

Do you know anything?

You're welcome (どういたしまして/Dou itashimashite)

Just a tiny note: ん is pronounced [N] so the romanization of 火山 (かざん) becomes Kazan.

Similarly for 火星[かせい/Kasen] where い is actually "i" and it should show Kasei in the romaji.

-火星[かせい/Kasen]: Mars - It should be "かせん"

Nope. The kana is correct; it's the romaji that's wrong.

星 -- meaning: star
 KUN readings: ほし (hoshi)
 ON readings: せい (sei), しょう (shō)
