How many kanji does Tobira teach?

#1
I couldn't find any solid info anywhere. Does anyone have an exact number?

I doubt that anyone knows, including the author. Do you have some sort of goal you're trying to reach?

Does Genki I+II teach all the prerequisite kanji?

Most, but not all. You will need to fill in some gaps. You can compare against the list here: http://genki.japantimes.co.jp/about_en/about07_en

Actually there's a list on the tobira site directly, that already does that. The first link on there is an excel sheet with the prerequisites, and there's also a list of kanji not taught in genki on it. There's also another note on the site that mentions a few more that are (as I understand it) also not taught in genki but are a part of other kanji taught in Genki so it also just assumes you know them.
So basically for Genki there's: 予汚返利取受約便拾洗消弱荷球暗暑寒晴練薬職 and 糸竹王貝矢耳馬門 according to the tobira site.
