Decent content, sloppy execution

In the state you download it the deck is a bit half assed and not ready for use. However, the basic content is good and after a few tweaks to the card layout and some minor changes to the content as you go along it is a worthwhile resource.

Deserves 2-3 stars as downloaded, and 4-5 after editing.

Fun deck, a few glitches

I started working through this deck. The pictures and example sentences are great - it's impossible to make sense of onomatopoeia without concrete examples. The definitions are useful for pointing out that the same onomatopoeia can mean more than one thing, even if the example sentence only illustrates one usage.

I did not know about the source website (linked in the deck), so that was cool.

I found two typos in the first ten cards I worked through (stinky should be "sticky"; 木の上で, not 昨日上で). I was baffled by these at first but was able to figure out what was wrong pretty quickly. Users with less experience of Japanese should be careful, though.

Something is wonky with the display of the furigana on my computer, but that might be because I'm on a Mac. Very minor annoyance.
