Importance of dakuten placement in hiragana?

How important is dakuten/handakuten placement in hiragana?

Example: On some pictures ten-ten is basically sitting on right corner of first stroke of fu to make bu sound, while, on the other, it's placed between first and fourth stroke.

So, how important is that? Is it alright for them to be anywhere as long it's visible and makes sense or it needs to be placed exactly like pictured?

Because most dakuten is in the top right corner of the Hiragana Kana, as long as the dakuten are generally in the area and are recognizable, you will be fine.

This is a very good question. We could probably rely on the point that everybody's handwriting is slightly different, so it should not matter, but then again, we can't be sure.

I would aslo really appreciate an answer :)

Cheers

I agree. Like with hiragana "de", you can either write it like で or like て" or something like that. But で does use up less space, and thus requires slightly less effort to read as well.

Because generally Dakuten is around the top-right corner of the Hiragana Kana,  as long as you write the ten-ten in that area and the Dakuten is recognizable, you will be fine.

Good luck.
