This deck has the same content as this deck: https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/798002504 and same as this one too: https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/215365929 Please check the description and updates to the deck in the above links. The only difference between these decks is the default order of learning. This deck has the new index as in the new edtion of the RTK book (6th edition), based on this source: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Z0BUSie8wh0JqlUejezs3EqauJuF-zKEomOQnqm9J08/edit?pref=2&pli=1#gid=0 As I noticed from the new index, first 2200 kanji (from RTK1 book) is almost the same as Jouyou Kanji list (except the different order and plus about 60 kanji). Therefore you can just keep that default order and don't need to suspend kanji outside Jouyou list as I recommended with the old deck. Anyway, if you want me to improve something with the deck, feel free to leave a comment :).. PS: It's better to use this deck as a companion with the RTK book, so buy the book to support it if you can :).

Bro the stories are great, everyone thumbing down because of it are just bible clutching losers who can't handle a little goofing around. I mean these stories work even better because I'm eager to see what funny thing will show up next, and I get to recall them like jokes.
For sure use this after studying radicals, I did and progress is going like a charm. Anyway, thanks bro, shit's great helping me learn kanji and people should use this.

This is a big no for the sroties
on 1679039387
Great deck with all the info one could ask for. The people who give this a negative review because a few of the stories are "rude" need to grow up and learn how to endure mild discomfort.
on 1678195756
Come on. What's with the rude stories accompanying the cards?
on 1677767486
The deck is OK. Keep in mind that it has quite a few duplicates and needs cleaning up.
on 1670205381
This is an amazing data mine of kanji data for RTK. I make my own cards and decks and the only thing I deleted was all the stories because you are supposed to make your own. Now before I review the card, I can make my memo of my own story and Anki keeps track of everything. This is great deck for making your own custom cards and decks.

Thanks for the hard work!
on 1665666077
The stories for this deck are disgusting. There are so many concerning things like masturbation, teenagers having sex, an example I just got to is "You can extract her juices by inserting a few fingers" for "抄". This is the kinda thing you share with your other incel friends on discord, if you're gonna post it publicly at least put a warning beforehand. I'm considering editing all the cards and uploading a clean version that can be used by a wider selection of people, because besides the stupid stories, the deck is good.
on 1662073391
I wish there was a neutral rating option. I believe this is the best deck for learning kanji, it teaches you essentially all of the kanji you will ever need, and in the most efficient manner possible. It's exactly what I was looking for. The deck uses both recognition and recall cards, if you do not wish to learn using recall you may suspend that half. However, I don't think it will lessen your work load. Being able to write the kanji is not necessary for most, and that is partly why I have heard that they should be avoided. In my experience however, it allowed them to stick far quicker, and so well that I could vividly picture kanji in my mind instead of having a vague idea of what it's supposed to look like, but always feeling like I am guessing, even when getting reviews correct. It's confidence inspiring, so the option is there.

If you have been searching for the perfect primary resource and have spent more time changing from WaniKani to RTK to KKCL to JP1K than actually studying, this is it, I don't believe there is a more efficient method currently available for learning kanji. I am generally far too concerned with finding the most effective way to study, so it has been nice to have something comprehensive that I can simply focus my energy into and not worry that I am missing out on a less time consuming method. If you stick with it, you will be able to both produce and recognise all of the kanji in the deck very well, very quickly, and without effort. For those dedicated to learning Japanese, but with an average amount of time to spare, it should take roughly a year to finish provided you are consistent and take around 20 new cards per day (although you will have to keep up reviews for a period of time afterwards).

My main issue with the deck is that whoever made it comes across as a sex offender. The mnemonics really are quite vile. I don't have a problem with people using dirty mnemonics if it means the kanji stick, but I don't understand why you would include them in this given it took such effort and time to create, it only limits its potential reach. In terms of free learning resources, this is a gem, and this is why I have given it a positive review, but it is glaringly obvious that it was created by somebody who watches too much anime and doesn't talk to women.
on 1656587609
Did an incel write the stories? What garbage...
on 1656077936
While this is a great deck with a lot of work put into to it, I have to give it a thumbs down for the incredibly crass R18 stories by the deck creator.
Yeah, it's great that "My girlfriend let's me come in her mouth" helped you remember 中, but it is way too unprofessional. Heisig's own stories often cause me pique, but at least they are only bad writing and not tasteless smut.

Would not recommend to others without a serious language cleanup.

next day edit:
The story for 児 is "Only 18 and already got a newborn babe. Young girls are so quick to spread their legs these days..."
This deck belongs in the trash, or preferably, in a fire.

Super straightforward to use, only minor tweaks to some words required. The example words provided and additional info on kanji is an amazing aid to learning with rtk which is considered an out of context approach. Best deck for rtk kanji by far
on 1637007798
Very well made and customizable. This deck is in the RTK Order, but is missing a few kanjis from the book.
on 1629913330
Awesome deck with some easy fixable issues.

You're supposed to do it in reverse
on 1609147650
Exactly what I was looking for
on 1607924164
I love how it includes links to online dictionaries and Kahooki on every flashcard. Having detailed info on every kanji from what JLPT level it is, to the breakdown of its radicals, and (usually) an extensive list of example words is also very helpful. This has helped me learn kanji better than any other free resource I've come across.
on 1603023098
Feels quite good. It's a lot of info, but I guess one should only try to memorize Kanji->English and English->Kanji (and maybe the best reading), keeping everything else as extra info just to take a look.

However, I didn't like the design so I did a restyling of it. You can get the code here:
Question side: https://codepen.io/Rusca8/pen/OJXXVBY (for the other question just change the placement of the "?")
Answer side: https://codepen.io/Rusca8/pen/gOMMpBE

Though, after a bit of extra research I decided I'll go with WaniKani instead: https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/266084933
...cause it includes radicals and vocabulary, it's nicely ordered, limits itself to the best reading of each kanji (except in vocab, where you learn other readings) and has mnemonic-oriented names in the radicals instead of the official boring ones.

Great deck, thank you!

Hello, I noticed the card for 冶 is marked as "reign, be at peace, calm down, subdue, quell, govt, cure, heal, rule, conserve" (The meaning for 治) When it should be "melting, smelting". The story is good
on 1592671409
Fantastic! I already know Japanese to an N1 level but I never learned how to handwrite, so that's what I'm using this for.

I disabled all "English to Kanji" recall cards by clicking "browse > card > card type" (up at the top), making sure the recall English to Kanji one (whatever it was named) was selected in the dropdown list, and then clicking "options > remove card type".

I then changed the layout of the cards and among other things I turned the kanji into a handwriting font and highlighted it in pink. Then whenever a card comes up for learning or review, I write it down with a pen in a notebook I keep next to my computer. Here's my card code if anyone wants:

Front Template:

<span style="color: #FF1B9A;">
<span style="font-size: 120px; font-family: "Chihaya Jyun", "Chihaya Jyun Regular", "chihaya-jun", "Nchifont+", sans-serif;">{{Kanji}}</span>

Amazing amount of content in these cards. Contains recognition and production cards, which is a plus.

This is great so far , i finally got to throw away my old and far from efficient anki deck.

.this is a great deck
on 1568866025
For everyone who is saying "The cards are wrong way around" they're not. I've you didn't read what this deck is for, it's for Recognition. The creator doesn't expect you to just use this deck and finish. This deck is supposed to be used until you stop seeing kanji as squiggly lines, coupled with the immersion you'll get. Thus, it's the most 1000 popular, because you'll revise them more when you immerse.

on 1560880847
Just an astounding deck, absolutely the best if you're planning on learning Kanji via RTK. As other people have mentioned there are some small issues (missing English in a few cards, for example) but these are easy to fix as you come across them and are not a systematic problem. Highly recommended
on 1556677418
There's a few issues (a couple of missing keywords, some invalid fields, etc.) but great deck otherwise.
on 1555420142
Excellent! This is the best deck for RTK 6th Ed. Get. It. Now. Thanks to the author!
on 1554253932
Some missing data on the later kanjis, but pretty trivial to fix on a case-by-case basis.

Thanks so much!
on 1553737233
Perfect, which useful additional information. Now I don't need to have multiple tabs open when revising.
on 1552237067
Excellent deck I'm using with the book. Extensive tagging allowed me to (1) build my own "RTK Lite" approach, and (2) find the 2010 jouyou additions. My first pass contains grades 1-6 kanji that are either frequent or from JLPT N4 and N5. I filtered on those and then highlighted the entries in the book. Second pass (which I highlighted in a different color) adds remaining N3 kanji and frequently used ones from N2. Most kanji added in 2010 jouyou can be found by filtering on JLPT.N0 and gradeS. I suggest adding a tag for these and possibly making them N1.

Updated ordering to new heisig rocks
on 1540046359
Great deck.
One thing to look out for: the kanji for "ten thousand" 万 is tagged with ShouldSuspend for some reason. (And you probably don't want to suspend that one.)
on 1538293284
Great deck! Is there any deck with just the primitives?
on 1529591674
This deck is amazing. People with sort order problems: when you first open the deck, click BROWSE then CHANGE THE SORT FIELD to RTK INDEX (NEW). Ordering will be perfect Heisig after that.

The keywords from Remembering the Kanji are not used as the hints in this deck, like they were in the previous version of this deck. Instead, you are given completely different words to what the book uses. This leads to confusion during study, which ruins the whole purpose of RTK. The last version of this deck was good, but this should not be used along with the book.

On top of this, the cards that were added to this version are lacking any of the information the rest of the cards have, including mnemonics, definitions, example words. This was a very lazy update to what used to be a great deck. But I can not recommend this version.
on 1524355200
While the deck *seems* complete. I can already see that it is not in the correct order. I doubt this is the first and only one I am finding but 亘 is #32 in RTK 6th edition but doesn't show up on the Anki deck until way later.
on 1520208000
I'm not sure how to contact you except to leave a comment here.

I've taken my copy of the book (REMEMBERING THE KANJI, VOL. I, Sixth edition: 3rd printing, 2014, Kindle Fire HDX edition) and written some quick software to extract the order and the keywords from the ebook data itself. Then I dumped your cards and wrote a little something to compare the two.

This is an exhaustive list of the descrepencies, after manually fixing what appear to be obvious typos in the ebook (Like saying the keywoard for 子 is 'all' even though the text goes on to describe it as 'child')


I think some of the descrepencies may be from various different editions of the book. The difference between 'affix' and 'post a bill' seems to be the sort of thing that was edited in for clarity, as an example. So it may be impossible to prevent some commenters from getting their panties in a bunch over keyword differences, but the bulk of the errors are genuine mistakes like missing keywords.

And even more discrepencies come from this pack having entries that are not contained in the book. I see they ARE on your google docs spreadsheets, though? So perhaps they come in later volumes of the book.

I'll watch to see if you fix this up yourself, otherwise you may not still be maintaining this and I'll see if I can release a fixed version myself.

Please ignore any of the dislikes on this deck - they're from people who don't have the mental capacity to understand the basics of using Anki. This deck is excellent quality and contains more than everything you need. The only complaint I would have is that the creator possibly doesn't understand fully the way the RTK method works and his main version is sorted by common usage instead which while being useful defeats the point of using mnemonics to learn in batches. However this issue is of course fixed with this version.

The most common complaints (and simple solutions) are:
1) Includes recognition cards as well as recall - to fix just filter on all recognition cards and suspend or even delete them all...
2) The default word on the recall cards is the English translation rather than Heisig keyword - to fix just edit the recall card to use the Keyword rather than the English field.
on 1513728000
Awful. The people here raving about how great this deck is clearly haven't read Heisig's book. First of all, the kanji is on FRONT, english on back, which is a great way to learn how to read and write. Heisig specifically states ONLY to do ENG->Kanji, then the readings will then take care of themselves.

Alright, so what? All you have to do is edit the card layout, no biggie, right? No. None of the indexes are correct. I have RTK 6th edition sitting in front of me right now, and these orderings are all over the place after the first 10.

The keywords often differ from Heisig's keywords (again, got my 6th edition right here!), making it obnoxious as you have to stop when you're in a groove and edit the stinking cards to fix it.

Idk why someone would spend all this time adding thousands of cards containing this many mistakes.
on 1504569600
on 1504483200
Keyword to Kanji

I'm also having a similar issue as another person with customisation as I wish to only review the cards from the keyword to the kanji as Heisig very explicitly points out. If this were simply my ignorance and I was easily able to change these settings in Anki, then could I please be informed, and the review would rightfully be changed to 5 stars.

Frequent errors; and not designed for RTK

I used this deck for a while, but it contains numerous errors and omissions -- enough to make me worry about anything I learn using it. For example:
* The number of strokes is missing on nearly half the notes.
* The Heisig keyword field is blank on 31 notes, and says "#NAME?" on 2 more.
* Many of the Heisig keywords are misspelled -- e.g., "facsimilie", or worse, "stationary" for 䇳 "stationery".
* Other keywords appear to be from past editions -- *not* the 6th edition the deck's description refers to. E.g. 峠 which should be "mountain pass", and 説 which should be "explanation".

There's a lot of other data in this deck which is useful. Some of it -- like the definitions -- is far too voluminous to belong on a card for any kind of spaced repetition. (See the "minimum information principle" discussed in the Anki manual, and in the Supermemo article the manual links to.) I haven't been looking closely at any of that other information because I haven't been using it; I'd worry that it also contains a lot of errors.

Fortunately, if you're studying the kanji following Heisig's method as described in RTK, you don't need most of that information -- just accurate copies of Heisig's numbering and keywords, with the kanji and the stroke counts. For that, the deck "Remembering the Kanji writings 1-3000" is excellent.

Amazing work!

This is absolutely amazing! If you're having trouble disabling the recognition deck search for this:
"deck:All in one Kanji - RTK order (new edition)" "card:Recognition"

Then you can disable those cards until you're ready. Totally agree with the creator, use this in tandem with the book.

Amazing Deck!

The decks is really great. It has a great amount of info, and even provides mnemonics to help learn the kanji.

However, I do have one problem, that the stroke order only show the kanji, and not the actual order. That also makes the recall cards much less effective since you don't actually know how to write the kanji.

Other than that, the deck is fantastic.
on 1486252800
Card Order

how can I learn the cards in the order they are supposed to reviewed? After downloading all cards they are mixed up when sorting after Due. Even cards with tags like "1-250" do not have the correct order to learn. Is that a beginner fault in anki? Nobody seems to have the same issue with this deck. What am I doing wrong?
Nevertheless impressive work, you're a great help for the community.
on 1483574400
Great deck!

Amazing deck, I couldn't have done this without it.
However, I've completely finished both RTK 1 & 3. But there are still a lot of kanji that doesn't have a keyword and aren't featured in the RTK volume 3. I'm a little confused as what I should do with them. I couldn't find anything on Koohii forums about it either. Again, thanks for the amazing deck!

Hint: you can get rid of the text->Kanji card without breaking the original ordering by:
1. start a quizz on this deck
2. click "edit" (bottom left corner)
3. click "cards..."
4. click the little red "x" on the "recall" tab
5. say ok, ok, close, close
6. ???
7. Profit

Great deck

If you do not like this deck, your issue is more with customizing Anki than with the deck itself. You must go to Tools> Edit Note Type> Cards to change what you need to change. You can mark out unnecessary HTML with comment tags <!-- blahblah -->. You can also suspend cards that have the kanji on the front through the deck browser.

Please ignore the 3 star review someone left.

Fantastic deck

Huge thanks to the author for making this deck and keeping it updated with the new RTK. It has every possible piece of information you could want about your Kanji and multiple tags to let you sort the list according to your needs.

I really appreciate the immense amount of work that went into making this deck. It was of huge help in my Kanji studies. A big thumbs up to the creator.

P.S. To the reviewer below and anyone with a similar issue, I highly recommend getting more familiar with using Anki. It allows very thorough customization, especially with well prepared decks like this one. You can easily change the cards to only ask you for the recognition part of the Kanji. There is no need to keep the "Recall" cards in the deck, if you don't consider them useful.
on 1457136000
Pretty good deck but....

Is there a way to disable the keyword to kanji cards? I'm not interested in output at all. I just want to learn how to read so all I want is to study kanji to keyword. The current setup is just doubling the time I could take finishing this.
