Meaning_Mnemonic A canopy is over your car because your car is in storage in a large warehouse.
Meaning_Info The canopy just protects your car from the elements as it sits in storage for long periods of time.
Reading_Mnemonic Your car is in this storage warehouse, just sitting there. A 子 (こ) notices this, and decides to take your car on a joyride. You won't notice, right? You never drive it.
Reading_Info Imagine a kid sneaking into your canopy to steal your car that's in storage. Maybe it's two 子s, one stacked on the other with a trench coat. One 子 works the pedals while the other 子 works the steering.

Radicals_Icons_Names
Meaning_Mnemonic Flowers that grow in the west are colored by the sun setting so they turn bright red. That's why red flowers that grow in the west are used to make red dye. They're the closest to the actual color of the red sun, so they're prized by painters and other artists for their perfect color for dye.
Meaning_Info Picture yourself sitting in the west as the red sun sets, smashing those pretty red flowers into a paste to make red dye. Your fingers get dyed red too and you crush the petals into a paste.
Reading_Mnemonic As you're smashing the flowers into red dye, a little girl comes up to you and points at the paste. She says, "赤ね (あかね)?" (That's red, right?) You look down at the red dye on your fingers and nod. She's right, it is red.
Reading_Info Hear the little girl say あかね while pointing to the red dye. She's right. And the way she says it is so darn cute.

This deck has really helped me study kanji, currently the only deck I am using. I would really recommend!

Great job

Amazing resource, especially since I've just finished my 3 free WaniKani levels.

Buena
on 1622432327
a great step for understanding more kanji in the future
on 1622230285
IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!!! Dont forget to sort the deck by "due" (click due on the top of the chart that shows all the cards) in the browse section of anki or else you will accidentally do ALL of the radicals, then ALL of the kanji, and ALL of the vocab. The way you are supposed to do it is finish level 1 radicals then level 1 kanji and lastly level 1 vocabulary. after finishing level 1 start level 2 radicals and so on. I wish someone else mentioned this before I accidentally learned about 150 cards in the wrong order. Other than that.... this deck is amazing and is the fastest way I can learn kanji and vocab :)

Thank you so much. Would definitely recommend this deck for learning kanji. I can now started to be a able to read kanjis without spending a dollar on books or wanikani subscription. This deck is invaluable
on 1617926267
Really, really helpful in studying Japanese!! Wanikani is brilliant.

For some reason, no audio is playing. I have run a media and library check. It says that the audio files were not connected to the flashcards. Is this a Anki or a deck problem someone could help me with? I really would like to have audio on this very fine deck.

The vocab cards look great and have a lot of information. I'm sure the kanji and radical cards are good, too, but I'm using Kanji Damage for that (colored stroke order, readings, various vocab words).
on 1607539311
Looks awesome but I'm not sure which file to get! do I click the download button or grab the latest version at the top?
on 1606669356
Really great! I had the Electric Boogaloo deck, but I just convinced myself to buy the £25 iPhone app and that deck doesn't work! Too much Java! So it's great that this can do the job with all the nice colours and layout haha.

Is it possible to add something that lets the input language swap from Eng to Kana automatically? (The Boogaloo deck can do this but not sure if that's part of the Java problem!)

Thanks again!

It is a wonderful deck, but there are some issues:

the radicals, kanji, and vocab are all unarranged . . .It goes from level 7 kanji, to level 35, then level 1 . . .what I did is download the modified deck of the commentator in the date 4/4/20, it is unarranged too like the same deck as this but he change it slightly different.To organize it, I click the browse and head to "radicals" sub deck,I click the upper portion "Filter.." and in the tags option i click the "level 1 kanji" . . . same goes with "kanji" sub deck and "vocab" sub deck, I click the filter from the upper portion of the browse,click the tag "level 1 kanji" and reposition it. Or you can merge them into one deck. . The other issue is that there are some comments regarding to the mnemonic or the meaning that is wrong or inaccurate meanings of the kanji, he says he found about 250 of them, I don't know what it is but I search them in a trusted japanese dictionary like the jisho.org ...

anyway thanks to the creator of this deck,WE highly appreciate your hard work especially for me as a student because I don't have a source of income to pay for wanikani . . .again Thank you very much !!!

Nice work!
on 1599706587
Brilliant, thank you for creating this.
on 1599394098
I have found 2 negative comments about ~ 300 wrong meaning kanji so I was frustrated about it. Has anyone tested it at 31/08/2020 ? Please let me know
on 1599217396
Excellent deck, but what order are new cards being added? I've only just started to use it, but so far it has gone straight from Level 1 Radicals to Level 2 Radicals, missing out the Level 1 Kanji and Vocabulary. Is anyone else having the same problem? It's going to be rather frustrating if it continues like this ie going through every radical, before it starts to add any Kanji.

Update 4 Sep 2020: I realised that the problem with the setup is that there are 3 subdecks for Radicals, Kanji and Vocabulary, so if for example you have changed your setup to only add 5 new cards per day, then they will only come from the list of Radicals. The solution is to remove the 3 subdecks by moving them into the one parent deck. Then new cards will be added in the order of all the level 1 Radicals, then all the level 1 Kanji, then all the level 1 Vocab. It then moves on to level 2 in the same way. I found it was easier to start again, by deleting my existing deck, reimporting the deck, then making all the required changes BEFORE starting to study the deck (ie combine the subdecks into 1, change the formatting as per instructions provided below by a reviewer on 3 April 2020, change the default voice if required from the male to the female as explained by the creator above, change the number of cards added each day as per your own preference)
on 1598556193
Very good deck! Though not exactly the same as it doesn't go through levels like the actual website but a good substitute.
on 1598522169
awesome, it's too expensive since it's billed in US dollars, this is a life saver thanks!
on 1598389226
I have been keeping an eye on wanikani for 5 months now as the perfect resource that I'd like to learn from, but I don't really have money... This is such a life saver, thank you very much... It has all that I need...

on 1594255526
Good deck but for the Kanjis, can you do only meanings cards only? It takes a long time to delete all the readings card manually but I want to know if there is a way for me to remove all readings card faster.
on 1594155829
Good deck
on 1593625605
Thank you so much for this! It's super helpful and makes memorising a lot easier! :)
on 1593326288
Wow! Thanks. This definitely took a lot of effort.
PS. if anyone feels a lag when using from ankidroid, remove the Japanese fonts from styling, and it will work smoothly.
on 1593165932
Thanks a lot man! This deck is really useful. Although many mnemonics feel like they were made for toddlers, maybe that's what we all need. You have done an awesome job
on 1592151414
Great deck!

Thanks for this awesome deck!
on 1588069064
Good deck!

Holy cow, some of those example sentences are seriously cringeworthy tho.
on 1587884611
Thanks for this. Even though most of the wanikani mnemonics are unbelievably bad, as if they were written by a child or something, this deck can be pretty useful.

On the other hand, wanikani subscription is basically a scam. They expect you to pay monthly, but then LIMIT how much you can progress each month... to keep you subscribed as long as possible. They won't let you skip kanji you already know either.

Imagine Netflix only allowing you watch two episodes per week, and not letting you to fast-forward or skip episodes that you've already seen.
on 1587418381
40 percent of the emnonics are completely wrong.
Good thing i noticed earlier or else i would make tragic mistakes when I comprehend them .
on 1586914480
It's a great deck and I am very glad that it was made, but I have a question. Is it possible, for the vocab, to be able to flip the cards for recall? Anki doesn't let me flip. I want to be able to recall for the vocabulary, so I get the meaning and have to enter the japanese. Is this possible to do?
on 1586907583
Does the job so far..
on 1586629905
Thank you.
on 1585969632
This is a very nice deck, thank you! I do have one issue, though. Maybe you can help?

I would have thought that simply clicking on "WaniKani Ultimate" and "Study Now" would be the correct way to use this deck. I expect it to go through each card in WaniKani order, but that's not the case. For whatever reason, Anki really wants to do all of the radicals first. It won't show me any kanji or vocab.
on 1585949908
Great deck, with 1 major issue:
long words in the vocabulary section would only show 2 characters then overflow to the next line, so I made a fix:

For both vocab cards, change to front template to have
<div class="kanji"><span>{{Vocab}}</span></div>
for the kanji section

Also add this script to the front of both cards
<script>
var textNodes = document.getElementsByClassName("kanji");
var width = textNodes[0].offsetWidth - 20; // minus 20 for some extra padding
var height = 150;

var widthTransform = width / textNodes[0].firstChild.offsetWidth;
var heightTransform = height / textNodes[0].firstChild.offsetHeight;
var value = widthTransform < heightTransform ? widthTransform : heightTransform;

for (var i = 0; i < textNodes.length; i++) {
textNodes[i].setAttribute("style", "font-size: " + value * 10 + "px");
}
</script>

And change the `.kanji` css to this
.kanji {
font-family: "Hiragino Kaku Gothic Pro W3";
font-size: 10px;
color: white;
stroke-color: white;
background-color:#a900fd;
}

Then the vocab text gets sized down appropriately (if needed)

Edit: Maybe I didn't type in the changes correctly into the commend, but it works for me on iOS and Desktop.
I've also made a few other changes since then: better formatted Meaning/Reading/Radicals, etc for Kanji and vocab. Highlighting the reading that is used by the reading mnemonic so I don't have to scroll down to see which one. Here's a link to my modified deck this time since I didn't get the changes correctly in there the first time 😬)

wow! great work man! it must have taken lots of time to write that. i will try to add this in the near future, i will need to test on different versions before adding it (iphone, android, etc ...)

nice job!

edit: i will try to implement this in the next update! soon! (probably this weekend)
edit2: i tried the script and it is not working ( i also tried changing numbers and other things, it i did not work) sorry :(
on 1585832629
Absolutely incredible! Thank you so much to the makers of this!
Money was always an issue when considering carrying on with wanikani and I don't have this issue anymore.
on 1584378829
The Deck is GREAT. Created perfectly, I am immensely greatful for the work the creator has put in...

...HOWEVER, I am marking down ONLY because the content (wani kani) has extremely basic, inaccurate or often downright wrong Kanji meanings - as creators of Wanikani decided to base kanji meanings using English translations of compounds...(???) Which MIGHT cause headaches down the road. Luckily I found out within only 250~ Kanji but editing many of them (in deck and in brain) was frustrating.

I do however still use this deck, but I NEVER trust the kanji meanings to be accurate so I use a addon for right-click web search straight to a trusted dictionary and amend that from the get-go, plus using my own mnemonics as I feel the writer(s) at WK are unprofessional at best and feels like they wrote the entire kanji mnemonics' the night before publishing while drunk.

I'm not completely comfortable with marking negative as, again, the deck itself I have no issue with and I appreciate that it was created as its helped immensely... I am just worried learners (like me) won't realise until its too late. Perhaps it would be easier to follow wanikani's methodology but I, myself prefer to have a solid and accurate foundation of Japanese even if I have to put a little more effort (fact checking, memorising multiple similar/different meanings of a single kanji) but such things are a breeze with basic memorisation methods!
on 1584353189
Hello, thanks a lot for the great deck. By the way, that guy who made the resizing code, (he posted a comment about it on january 2nd 2020 or something). You replied that you couldn't get it working, but it does work for me where I've tested it. You may just need to move the script down to the bottom of the html? What wasn't working for you? On certain devices or just not working in general? I see it working in ankidroid and osx anki client. Let me know and I can help you debug it.
on 1584288402
Dude you're a God. Best deck so far.
I was saving money to buy this but had to stop as I had to spend it for some urgent need. That meant I needed to start collecting money again for months. And I genuinely wanted to learn Kanji. But money was a big obstacle. Love you man for the the hardwork and generosity.
on 1584019827
Great quality on this one. Highly recommend.

Some minor issues:
- Some (very few) radicals are missing their symbols. They show as crossed squares. I think that happens to the ones that are not actually radicals and were invented by the platform. I just edited those notes adding and image version of the symbols.
- You might want to adjust slightly the CSS for the vocab cards as depending on screen size they'll overflow. Reducing by a few points the font size will do.

Cards are also tagged by level, which is really convenient, and all text is colour coded. Good work!

It lacks information on the most important readings, which you can find on older (albeit outdated) decks. It's otherwise perfect.

Thank you for all your hard work.

Also, I don't know if it's just me but every time I do media check it says there are four audio files missing.

Anyone know of a fix? Cheers

Update: Talked to the creator on discord and he made a new version of the deck for me to fix the problem, super nice guy. Great deck too.
Comment from author before post was edited
hi, i haven't seen that error before, can you please contact me on discord?

i need to know what version of anki are you using? what is your operating system? and are you using any anki add-ons?

edit: i might have an idea of what caused that error, i will try to update the deck soon, please be patient

edit2: for anyone receiving similar error: it is caused by a plugin interference, disable the plugins one by one to know which one is causing it

edit3:i have updated the deck now, if anyone got a similar error and you downloaded before18/11/2019 you should upgrade the deck (by deleting the deck then reinstalling this one) cheers

you have to change your keyboard language to japanese, it is really easy to do here is an article explaining how:

after setting it up, you can switch between japanese and english by clicking "alt+shift" on your keyboard (if you are on pc)

Thank you for this. I got it working on windows 10 with installing the ttf file that was written above. But I have the same issue with certain radicals like gun, leaf, horns on the android app. Is there any way I can get it working on there too?
Comment from author
edit: sorry, i miss-read your comment, i thought you said "radicals do not show on windows 10"
this week i will try to work on a fix to make it work on android, please be patient

edit2: i have updated the deck now, you dont have to download any fonts now!! all fonts are included in the package. and it will work perfectly on both pc and the android app.
if you downloaded before 25/10/2019 and want to upgrade you can either delete your current deck (with all your progress)then download this deck OR you can follow these steps to upgrade manually: www.reddit.com/user/adeckforanki/comments/dqlccd

Using Windows 10 and the windows instructions did not seem to work.
However, directly installing the mentioned font did fix the issue (right click .ttf -> 'Install')

i have deleted the steps i written previously to not confuse people.
