After the file is downloaded, double-click on it to open it in the desktop program.

At this time, it is not possible to add shared decks directly to your AnkiWeb account - they need to be added from the desktop then synchronized to AnkiWeb.

Very useful and saves quite a lot of time instead of doing it yourself. Despite the missing bits and pieces, it's a great piece of work. I had to add mnemonics for the other readings as well as the additional kanjis, but overall it has saved me a ton of time! You have my respect!

For linux, the comment with the instructions on how to fix the broken radicals works, but you have to RUN the .ttf file by opening it and pressing the button in the little window after it's in the folder, then restart anki :) worked for me thanks

Each vocab word has a tag that says which level it is. This is awesome because I already know a lot of vocab, so I can use the tags to study vocab that's at the right level.

I also like the fact that it includes example sentences.

I wish the cards had Japanese definitions though.

Great deck! Unfortunately I’m getting “{incorrect format }” for most of not all of the vocab, any fix?

Thank you for your hard work!

I already did Wanikani up to lvl 23. Then I stoped for one year. This is the perfect way for me to go over it one more time before resuscribing. Thank you.

There are missing kanji, but you can download them. Super deck.

Wow it looks very good, so beautiful, I don't know if all those comments about missing features or things like that are true or so important but I will give a like :D
on 1521244800
it's missing literally 10+ vocabs for each level, which is like 500+ in total
not to mention level 51-60 is not included, still helpful anyways, just too bad I guess
on 1515024000
So helpful, so good

How to fix Broken Radicals

Fixing the broken/missing radicals is easy.
(For Windows)

1. Download the font "WakaFont" (used for displaying special WaniKani radicals)from here: https://wakafont.surge.sh/WakaFont-dist.zip

2. Open the .zip file and click on "Fonts" folder. From there look for "WakaFont_0171c8d52806f1098628c00a932db286.ttf" . The extension type of the file is True Type Font(.ttf)

3. Open the Anki collection folder on your PC. (To find the folder ,type %Appdata% on the start menu and look for "Anki2"-->"User1" or whatever user profile you use the deck in -->"collection.media")

4. Extract the .ttf file here.

5. Rename the .ttf file to "_WakaFont_0171c8d52806f1098628c00a932db286.ttf" (here "_" has been added to the start of the name of the .ttf file)

6. Close the folder and restart Anki

This should fix the radical issue

wanikani ios template FIX

To fix the vocab card template error for anki on iphone ios I deleted the following lines from the vocab card template (towards the bottom of the back template) using the main anki program.

{{#Context_jp}}<u><span class="text"><b>Context Example</b></span></u><br><span class="text">
{{furigana: Context_jp}}{{Context_jp}}</span><span class="text">({{Context_en}})</span>{{/Context_jp}}

delete the above lines and replace them with these lines below and it should work ok, it did for me!;

{{#Context_jp}}<u><span class="text"><b>Context Example</b></span></u><br><span class="text">{{Context_jp}}</span>

Very useful but not complete

The deck is very useful if you are trying to find a way of learning Kanji and vocabulary in tandem. I have learned all Kanji with Heisig's method and was looking for a way of cementing the Kanji knowledge while learning readings and vocabulary, this deck makes it easy. I simply ignored the Radicals deck, as Wanikani radicals and stories are in conflict with the Heisig ones.

Sadly, level 23 is missing from the Kanji deck for some reason, but the affected Kanji can be reconstructed from the vocabulary deck and inserted manually. The missing Kanji are 乳, 俳, 停, 備, 優, 則, 割, 収, 呼, 城, 宅, 導, 崎, 師, 幹, 張, 律, 施, 沢, 準, 演, 現, 看, 秀, 職, 裁, 規, 護, 贅, 革, 鬼. The associated keywords are Milk, Haiku, Halt, Provide, Superior, Rule, Divide, Obtain, Call, Castle, House, Lead, Cape, Teacher, Tree, Stretch, Law, Carry, Swamp, Standard, Perform, Present, Watch, Excel, Employment, Judge, Standard, Defend, Luxury, Leather, Demon.

I recommend making an extra field "my story" in the Kanji deck early on so that you can write down your own associations for characters you have trouble with.

To fix the broken radicals...

To fix the broken radicals, import this first - https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/1043263385 - then import this big humongous deck next.

I'm still in the middle of NihongoShark's Kanji Deck until I stumble this deck. Sucks I found out about this deck a bit later when I got almost a month in studying the RTK method. This deck is almost 5 stars for me but because of the broken radicals (which can be easily fixed), I gave this 4 stars.

Also, I'm not sure how to approach in studying this deck. Maybe separate the deck in subdeck to another subdeck which would be level1 upwards since the order is a bit messed up.

Needs Missing Radicals

Like the other reviewers have said, the radical cards need to be fixed before this deck can be truly useful.

Some radicals are indeed missing

Does anyone have an updated version, with all radicals available?

Best Deck Out There

Took a Japanese class where a two stellar classmates recommended this, and honestly it has turned my life around! It splits your learning into three parts: radicals, kanji, and kotoba WHILE providing mnemonics for them (that you can later customize yourself) so that you don't have to painstakingly memorize each and every one through repetition. Am gradually learning but am proud of my progress! Simply perfect!

Great Deck

I love this deck, but on Anki iOS the vocab deck comes up invalid template, does anyone have a fix

Missing lesson

This has pretty much been exactly what I've been looking for to keep myself up to speed on past lessons. The only problem I've run into is that the kanji for lesson 23 seem to be missing. They aren't part of the level23 tag. Also, this only goes up to 50 and doesn't include the "bonus" levels.
