For detailed instructions, see the Component builder how to guide.
To find any kanji, first try to identify the components it is made up of. Once you have identified any component, search for it in any of three ways:
  1. Draw it in the drawing area
  2. Type the name in the text area
  3. Look for it in the list
Example: look up 漢
  • Notice that 漢 is made of several components: 氵 艹 口 夫
  • Draw any of these components (one at a time) in the drawing area, and select it when you see it
  • Alternatively, look for a component in the list. 氵 艹 口 each have three strokes; 夫 has four strokes
  • If you know the meanings of the components, type any of them in the text area: water (氵), grass (艹), mouth (口) or husband (夫)
  • Keep adding components until you can see your kanji in the list of matches that appears near the top.

The Kanshudo Component Builder can recognize any of the 416 components listed in the chart below the drawing area. Tips:
  • Draw a component in the center of the area, as large as you can
  • Try to draw the component as it appears in the kanji you're looking up
  • Don't worry about stroke order or number of strokes
  • Don't draw more than one component at a time

explanation
means
as would be expected
さすが(に) is often used to acknowledge the connection between an outcome and one's ability. It generally has positive connotations, but it can have negative connotations, particularly when used in the context of someone's failings.
さすが
きみ
ならやってくれる
おも
っていた

Excellent! It's just like you to come through like that.
かれ
さすが
だいがく
大学
った
だけことある
He did not go to college for nothing.
さすが can also be used as an equivalent of the English 'be that as it may' - in other words, to express the idea that while a foregoing phrase or sentence may be the case, something else is also true / important etc. For example:
うそ
をつく
いいだが
つく
ばなし
つか
使
なまえ
名前
さすが
流石
えら

It's one thing to tell a lie. But ... at least choose the name you use in a made-up story carefully!
Historically さすが was written with kanji as , but this is uncommon in modern usage.
