It may not be that bleak, but it is true that without constant repetition and reinforcement you will find all of those hard-won kanji fading from your memory, and symbols that once were filled with meaning now look like just so many chicken scratches.
I can't lie to you and say that this "Japanese Kanji a Day Practice Pad" is all that you will ever need to keep those kanji tucked safely away in your brain, but it is a pretty nifty way to get some stress-free daily kanji practice in. Basically, you just keep the pad next to you on your desk, and when you got a few spare minutes you do the kanji exercise for the day, then tear off the sheet.
The kanji start at the super-basic level (ichi), then slowly get more complex. The focus is on basic vocabulary words that you learn in a Beginning Japanese course so you do get into a few kanji that are somewhat complicated to write but have a basic meaning (like "ochiru" or "fall"). Obviously, since this is a "kanji-a-day" calendar there are 365 kanji in total.
Each page lists the kanji with all possible readings, then about two words using that kanji in a combination. Going around the edges are boxes for writing practice. There are three boxes to trace the kanji, then you are on your own for the remaining twenty-five boxes. Roughly once a month there is then a blank page for you to practice all the kanji you have learned so far.
Clearly, no one is going to master any kanji through this method. This is purely for reinforcement and repetition. For that though, it is a really handy tool that I like having on my desk.
The point I want to add is that the printing of the copy I got isn't the greatest. The problem is the three squares with the outline of the characer in gray for tracing. In most cases, the gray is so faint that it may as well not be there. Given that the font used for the tracig doesn't manage the writing of the stroke order chart or the main printd character, there is little to go on. I found this as well with some of the kana set, though it was true for only a part of the pad, the print getting darker the further into the pad one got. It sounds minor, but I believe these racings are supposed to be a major selling point.
The best use of this will come with suplimenting with an actual Learn Kanji text; I found that this pad serves best as a reinforcement to learning Kanji from other texts. Awesome way to spend the time waiting for the old computer to boot up!
