The core 2K/6K deck is the best vocabulary deck to learn from, and this version has all the right fields such as example sentences and audio. The frequency order is better in terms of immediate use than a thematic order like in Genki or JLPT Tango (and as studies apparently suggest, better in terms of memorization because all words are very different). And it's a bit more general and extensive than V2K.

I made changes however, agreeing 100% with the commenter on 10/7/2019.

1. The "optimized" order makes no sense. The whole purpose of the core deck is the frequency order. I didn't do any prior kanji studying except for basic knowledge of radicals, and with the frequency order, I still found it easy to pick up kanji as I went.

2. The pictures are of questionable quality, particularly the more sexualized ones.

3. Recognition over production. Recognition is easier which builds momentum; is typically more useful in practice (depending on your use cases); provides more ambiguity for interpreting foreign words, rather than always associating an English meaning to just one foreign word; and favored for JLPT.

The cards' styling can be improved. The Javascript/CSS for how I style the deck is borrowed from here with things like Kanjax (https://github.com/dustinvtran/anki).

Seems nice

Very well organized and thoroughly and wisely ordered cards. The progressive order for used kanji is great to soften on-yomi readings immersion.

The downvote for inaccuracy (the reviewer says9つ should be 9歳) is not correct. It’s common usage and correct to say 9つ to mean “nine years old".

There are some really misleading ones in here.. Not two cards in, I got one saying "my daughter is turning nine" as わたしの娘明日九つになります。 This is just dead wrong, it should be 9歳

These three decks are absolutely beautiful, but I found that using them in their current state was a giant pain in the ass for me.

I hated the "optimized" ordering, since I think learning by frequency is the whole point of doing core2k/6k in the first place... I don't want to learn multiple-kanji words for office work before I learn how to say simple things like wind or sea or sky, you know? Also, I did Heisig before, so I don't really need to order them by kanji to ease me in, I just want to learn the most common words first.

Anyway, I found that these were really useless as production cards, because I started associating the words with the pictures, and very quickly there were too many possible Japanese answers for the English input, and it's hard to separate them by example sentence because the sentences often don't give you enough information.

I decided that since my goal is to get reading as soon as possible, I should turn these into recognition cards.

So TL;DR in my experience after a few months with these decks, this is the best way of using them if your goal is to read ASAP:
1. Merge the decks and sort by Core Index.
2. Take out all the pictures. You want to associate words with their definitions, not with pictures of girls looking at you suggestively.
3. Set the Kanji + example sentence + part of speech to be on the front, and pronunciation / English definition to be on the back.

After doing these three things, the decks have been a godsend for me, and recognizing words has become the strongest part of my Japanese study, as well as the easiest to learn.

Images help to learn the vocab and audio provides some useful listening practice as well!

Thank you! It's a great deck.

This deck has everything you can wish for. Using keigo and tamego, male and female speech, the examples sentences are very diversified. The audio is professionally recorded and authentic.
If this wasn't free I would pay for it!

This series of decks is great for pulling cards from as I've been studying through Minna no nihongo. Including the sound has been very helpful to my learning experience.

This deck is excellent. My only problem is that I have reached a point with very similar words and meanings-but no pictures. I hope the majority of what cards remain have pictures, as they have been very useful. Now that I am having to do without them study is much more difficult.

Very helpful deck, for each new word, include type(noun, verb, adj,...) kanji, meaning.
Especially example sentence and audio.
