comment What special kana are used to write foreign words?
"The added vowels are conventionally supposed to be written at half-size when used in this manner, however in practice it’s not uncommon to see them at full size; this has no bearing on its pronunciation." Yes, it does! ウエ is two morae and ウェ is one mora long.

comment 漢字 classification: 象形、指事、会意、形声
That's why I asked for a "more authoritative" resource: to avoid errors. The "awesome website" seems also to be a good source for 甲骨文字. Unfortunately, I don't read Chinese (yet), but thank you for pointing me into some direction =)

comment 漢字 classification: 象形、指事、会意、形声
I'm less interested in creating poetic explanations, than in understanding the etymology of the character. It seems that the website I linked to in my question classifies 光 as 形声文字, 花 as 形声文字, both of which you claim are inaccurate. Can you suggest a more authoritative source for checking the classification of 漢字?

comment Sentence structure and meaning
I think punctuation in mangas is not very consistent, so the reader is free to add in punctuation where necessary or appropriate.
