It foiled 3 different online handwriting input websites. I tried looking it up via radicals to no avail. The rest of the characters in this font were quite easy to get.

As per request, the context. Context

I had decided on "ざ"

    Hiragana そ has variations (like Latin lowercase "g" and "a" have typographical variations). See this. – naruto Jun 28 '16 at 4:27

    I always write the two-stroke version of そ, and since that is how I was taught the character, I believe there are a number of Japanese who still write it that way as well. But, my understanding is that it's a more old-fashioned way to write it. – Nick Overacker Jun 28 '16 at 4:36

Thanks for adding the context. It is indeed ぞ. The whole thing is:


EDIT: Looking for more context I tried to google it and it seems the title of some kind of erotic anime or manga? That was kinda embarrassing since I'm at work and a quite inappropriate picture came out. Lol :)

  • Sorry about that, perhaps I should have given some warning. I was a little unsure about posting it here, weird tastes and all that. Any indication for why it looks so different? Is there a place where I could look at this character in more fonts? – MonikerHart Jun 28 '16 at 4:37

    You get to answer questions here while at work? ;) – Earthliŋ Aug 30 '16 at 13:34
  • Well, given that I work at least 10 hours a day I allow myself a little break once in a while. :D ..And although I'm in an open space my seat is quite saf...speak of the devil my boss just showed up. But I guess why someone created alt+space+n. Lol – Tommy Aug 30 '16 at 23:29

It would be must easier if you gave more context but off of just this I would just guess ぞ (zo).

  • I was exactly thinking about ぞ too and I was waiting for more context indeed. – Tommy Jun 28 '16 at 4:19
  • I added context. – MonikerHart Jun 28 '16 at 4:21
