The deck combines radicals and components decks used for learning Kanjis CONTENT - All 214 official radicals - Keywords - Stroke order - Kanji examples The difference between radicals and components - Radicals are used to form kanji. There are 214 radicals. It's a fixed number, even though some radicals can be written in different forms. For example: 人 can also be written 亻 in some kanji. Check here for more info. - To learn kanji, one of the most popular way, is to deconstruct kanji into smaller parts. You then make up stories to connect all the parts that help you remember the "meaning" of the kanji. Those parts, called here components, are not always reduced to a radical. For example: 木 (tree) is a radical. For the kanji 禁, we can use 示 (altar) and 林 (grove) to make a story instead of 示 (altar) and 木 (tree) x2. There's no official list for components. My list of components is based on the stories from RTK and koohie. The frequency for each component is based on how many times it's being used across all kanji. WHICH ONE TO USE If you want an academic approach, the radicals are an official list, use that deck. It's ordered by their official list number. If you want to familiarize yourself with the various components in order to learn kanji, use the components deck directly. It's ordered by frequency. CREDITS - Most of the content and card style is based on this deck. I added the missing radicals, and used the mentionned wikipedia page to add, changed some information. - The components are based on my own kanji deck. OTHER DECKS - Study : Kanji, Grammar, Vocabulary - Reading: Manga (Yotsuba), Games (Pokemon, Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest) - Listening : Anime, Pimsleur I've compiled all my resources on my website. You can find hundreds of anime, manga, games ordered by difficulty, direct links to their anki decks; links to video-game japanese scripts, guide on how to study japanese, links to ressources for studying, and various tutorials to help you along the way.

The cards don't even have the information on them that the samples do.

Update: What I mean specifically is that the samples on this page have the stroke order font, Japanese name(s) for the radical, and examples kanji for reference, amongst other things. None of this information was found on the actual cards once I downloaded the deck, which is kind of false advertising.

Update 2: I downloaded the deck again to check, and I retract everything I said. When I checked the first time, the Japanese name, example kanji and all that were not to be found on any of the cards I checked. I even searched for the sample notes displayed on this page, with the same result. What I didn't realise, however, was that there were more than one card in the deck showing up when I searched (I have a lot of cards, and so the other note in the deck kind of drowned in the search result). I just happened to get the component card up first, and so I never saw any of the radical cards.

I apologise. This is all on me. Thank you for getting back to me so quickly and clearing up the misunderstanding.

Could you elaborate as to what kind of information you have on other decks that you don't have here ?

Update: Ok, that's not really how this works.
On this page, ankiweb show 3 random notes from the deck when you upload it.
I don't pick them, there's no advertising, more importantly those notes are in the deck.
In this case, those notes will be for the Radical subdeck, not the Component subdeck.

Not every field from the note is on the card though, so feel free to edit the card style to match your preferences.
For example, change {{Stroke Order Image}} by {{Stroke Order Image 2}} if you want the stroke order font.

You check out the manual for Anki if you have more questions about the difference between notes / cards and how to edit the card style.

Update 2: cool.

Its pretty good, my only issue is that it doesn't teach you the actual Japanese meaning of some of the radicals. (example, 女 or 水, or any radicals that function as individual kanji)

Have been using it for days. It's good. Purple background means the symbol isn't an ideogram on its own, and red background means it is.
Has stroke order and direction indicated.
