Wow, I was looking up this guy to see if I could find an answer for you, and his work is just beautiful! I've only really ever looked into Hokusai's work for class...shame on me, I know ;)

comment Why the mixture of *on* and *kun* readings of numbers?
That's a very interesting question, but I think it's along the same lines as why some words in English have both Greek and Latin roots..."television" is the most well known one I think, but it actually happens a lot, especially with new words ^.^ I found a neat link: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hybrid_word for those curious :)

comment Stroke order for han-dakuten
@Chocolate, It is sort of a grey area, that's true! I remember a big O being drawn with ink and brush on a car commercial once, so I figured there had to be an "official" way of writing it...

@Chocolate It's "zero" or "circle" (as in what is used for correcting papers) ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/… It's a relatively new kanji, as these things go, apparently. Also, I'm not sure why this answer was downvoted: I provided a source to back up what I said, I answered the question, I can't guarantee it's correct, but Comments are not for Answers: meta.japanese.stackexchange.com/q/593/921

comment Should I speak in the local dialect and/or accent of an area?
@Andrew: Oh, I went to University in QC and everyone there called it a cell phone...I'm pretty sure it's in the UK they say "mobile" ^.^
