comment Is there a kanji for しか?
You can't prove that a fact is in fact a fact, so to speak, but you can do better than present a simple guess (without references) as an answer.

You'd probably ask an even better question, if you looked up 放す and 離す in a dictionary first. (The two JP-EN dictionaries I checked have different entries for the two verbs.)

comment Why should I use つかれました and not つかれたです
Because it's ungrammatical. (BTW, つかれた is not an adjective.)

@TokyoNagoya What do you make of the particle だけ, which can be written 丈? I thought that, even though particles are written with 仮名 in contemporary Japanese, some particles can in principle be written with 漢字. (More examples: 程, 等, 迄, ...)

@SimonGill At least in the manga of the question, the ふりがな seem to have simply been omitted. 口, 聞く, and 事 are all more basic than 彼女 and 自身, but have ふりがな, whereas 彼女 and 自身 just have 傍点.
