meaning: random, diffuse, involuntary

漫画 == manga == (noun) manga
散漫 == sanman == (noun, adjective that takes な) vague, desultory, distracted, loose, half-hearted, diffuse




Left radical is a radical version of 'water'. Right radical is a Non-General Use character, used phonetically to express 'spread'. This character originally meant 'flood', which is still a major meaning in Chinese. Henshall suggests taking the rest of the right radical as a 'sun' (日), 'eye' (目), and as a mnemonic: ' Hand involuntarily shades eye watering in diffuse sunlight.'
