What are the first 100 kanji to learn?

Q: Hi Richard,
Your method is effective-I have learned a bit more then before- just in two days:-)
I like to know with which kanjis I start,because you tell us that we should begin to write 100 kanjis-which are the most important kanjis?  ok, thanks so much:-)  – pat

A: Glad the materials are working out and good question!
The first 100 or so kanji are pretty much set as they are the first ones kids learn in school or are used most often.   Most books (including the Manga University ones) start off with a smilar list.

You can also find a list of the first 100 from the Japanese Language Proficiency Test here:  http://www.jlptstudy.net/N5/N5_kanji.html

Be genki,
