Does This Really Mean "I Love You" in Kanji?
This request came from the administration office at a charter school. The request was for several large banners to hang in the auditorium, the schoolyard, the main staircase, around the pool (which is also the community pool -- being a charter school they don't have a complete set of athletic facilities worked out yet), and in the gym.
The school focuses on learning-disabled students "who display an aptitude for symbology or language". Their mission statement goes on to describe the possibility of academic success if the student is offered instruction (and an academic environment) outside of the student's primary language.
That's all well and good, but...does this seriously mean "I love you" in Kanji? Because...umm...it looks like...yeah.
