This deck has the same content as this deck: https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/798002504 Please check the description and updates to the deck in the above link. It seems like many of you requested a RTK order version of the deck, so I made this deck. You can always customize the deck the way you want, such as delete/suspend recall cards, add your own tags, change the card format, etc. However, in my personal opinion, learning kanji outside jouyou list just doesn't make sense, those kanji will take you a LOT of time to learn and even doesn't help you much in reading general japanse. (3 RTK books cover 3007 kanji, which means nearly 1000 kanji not in jouyou list) So it's my advice that if you use the RTK order of this deck, you should suspend all kanji outside jouyou list (they are mostly kanjis from RTK3, I think), and maybe just unsuspend the primitives that help you remember later kanji. Update: I've made a tag called "ShouldSuspend" for these kanji, you can choose the tag and suspend them all in one hit with anki browser. PS: To reply to the comment that said this deck is not up to date: Thanks for your comment :). I'm aware that recently the RTK book was updated. However I couldn't find an updated version of the RTK index on the net, if you can provide me the new index, I would be pleased to update it to this deck. But I'm pretty sure that this doesn't affect much when you learn with this deck, it's the ALL in one kanji deck anyway :), and the old index is still good and widely used in anki community. To make it clear, the new RTK1 version added 196 kanjis from Jouyou list, and those kanjis are already included in this deck. UPDATE: Thanks to the new index source you provided in your comment, I've made a new deck based on that source. It's here: https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/1862058740 I still keep this deck for those who prefer this old index can get updates from this deck. If you start from beginning, you should go for the new 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 :).

Keyword throw
Koohii Story 1 Well, you usually use your fingers to throw objects used as missile weapons. Easy. By the way, for those of you looking for a less anachronistic image for the missile primitive as a modern rocket, try a slingshot. it´s a crotch (originally a tree branch) that sends missile projectiles flying into/like the wind. And for this present kanji, it is something you naturally use with your fingers...
Koohii Story 2 If you use the primitive "semen" (flying in the wind from your crotch) instead of missile then all kanjis with this primitive will hilariously create a perfect story.

I don't mean to downrate the deck but if you have the 6th edition book, Use this 6th edition deck order instead https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/1862058740 (WARNING: If you insist on using this deck, everything will be out of order if you use this deck from 700th cards and after. I also recommend you use the 6th edition book not the old one)

A very complete deck! Thank you very much for this very helpful tool. I'll never had learned over 2000 kanji if it wasnt of this deck. Very recommended.

I picked up Heisig's book from the library and started reading it. I began creating an Anki deck to help with my studies. Then I thought to search for one. This deck is great and saved me countless hours of creating one myself. It is even better now that I installed the stroke order font. I will recommend this deck to anyone that is reading Heisig to help them learn the Kanji. Thank you for the immense amount of time you must have spent creating it.
on 1555062171
Thanks! I was struggling with the difference from the book. One edit though: On the cards you need to add the field {{RTK Index (new)}} into the index spot. It wasn't there in the version I downloaded.

Working through the deck can be time consuming, but the pay-off is worth it. If your schedule gets tighter, you can decrease the frequency at which new cards get introduced as the reviews get longer.

I like that it has "meaning => kanji" and "kanji => meaning" variations, as well as having some example words and even the name pronunciations to many of the kanji.

There are a couple downsides to this deck including the fact that it does give the stroke order. Also for the "meaning => kanji" variation it defaults to showing you the "English" field which is separate from the "keyword" leading to some cards having the same front side. You may want to edit the layout of this to show the keyword in bold above the English meaning to make it easier to keep them distinct.

Follows along the Heisig book and includes extra content like how to remember it as well as the kun and on-yomi reading. Excellent! Thank you so much!

Good deck.
on 1529973794
This is great! I'm just a beginner in learning Japanese so I decided to use some cards of this deck which are used regularly like 時, 円 and others to create a "kanji beginner" deck of my own. But I tried to look for 私 kanji but it's not there. Am I searching incorrectly?
on 1529217788
Thanks! this saved me a lot of time I would've lost from making this myself!

very good
on 1517702400
Thanks for this deck! As I started to learn this deck 2 months ago I feel a very big improvement. This is one of the best deck, I really recommend to everyone.
I really wanna tell that, before of starting this deck, I was check in to the Heisig's book, and I was think "errr this is not for me". But I was download this deck, and I was just give a shot. The very well chosen examples (words), the info about jlpt, jouyou, frequency really made me satisfied. Actually I do not use the heisig book at all, I just use this deck! Really thank you very much for making it!

I>> just didn't have the font installed LOL!

As I said, the stroke order is just a big kanji equals any other in AnkiDroid, but it's not fault of the deck of course(It was mine! I didn't have the font xD).
I also agree that some stories are pretty offensive and I don't like them - RTK originally use very easy-to-follow, plain and sometimes kind stories. These mnemonics sometimes remember me kanji damage - I like the order and the information it gives but I don't like the mnemonics or the fact that it calls many different compounds as if they were same.

Finally, The deck itself is fine xD

Excellent deck. Just what I was looking for!

Thank you so much! This saved me a LOT of time!

Thank you!

Thank you very much for making and organizing an RTK version!! Much appreciated!!

Great RTK deck

I've been using this deck for months and it's been incredibly helpful in my studies. If you are using RTK, this is THE deck.

My only minor gripe is that an astonishing number of the user stories are overtly sexual or even a little misogynistic. That may help some people, but for me the frequency was more distracting than helpful. Of course you can easily turn the stories off or alter them so it's not that big of a deal.

Also very rarely the keyword will be wrong but, again, this is something you can easily change.

Amazing! (But I have a suggestion)

This deck is wonderful!

I am guessing you are the author of the previous all-in-one 1.2b that I have been using for almost three years. Thank you, thank you!

I am still trying to see the easiest way to switch to this new deck as it is really great. There is only one suggestion that comes to mind. Could you please embed the strokeorder font in the deck itself? I tried to follow the guides to do it myself, but it is a hassle to figure out how to do it because I am not a programmer. If the font were already embedded, this deck would be even more awesome.

Thanks a lot and keep up the great job!

That's all. Excellent, amazing, and perfect. Thank you very much!
