What do you intend to write? They make no sense as written above.
You might want to invest in a kanji dictionary if you plan to do this regularly, but always check with a Japanese native, too.
Besides, kanji characters can have more than one meaning.

Here's what I can come up with in a rush as an example (in order from your picture).
dragon; imperial
dream/vision/illusion
chase; drive away; follow; pursue; meanwhile
love; affection; favourite
?
power; strength; strong; strain; bear up; exert
philosophy; clear
wickedness
fate; command; decree; destiny; life; appoint

Thanks for taking the time to reply Glenski. The characters were just meant to be single words, not really a sentence. I've simply just excluded the ones that you weren't able to understand. The rest of the kanji are what I need them to be. Again, thanks!

The far right of the upper would be 英. Although the kanji is incorrect.
兇(The third one of the bottom) is rarely used nowadays. 凶 is used instead.
 
Top Bottom
