I've been using it for months, great to prepare for JLPT. However some of the cards are not in their corresponding decks, eg. if you search for tag:jlpt-n2 some were in the Common words deck. So I recommend fixing this before starting to use it.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I have updated the decks and this should be fixed.

Excellent deck! Very helpful for building general vocabulary. Cards are well made and organized with plenty of info but not so much that it overwhelming. I did notice one mistake; 奇麗 (きれい) (pretty/clean), should be written 綺麗.

Great Deck! Essential for anyone planning on learning Japanese and will save you tons of time on making your own cards.However, the audio is only for some of the cards. Nevertheless, an essential deck for anyone learning Japanese.

It's good, but you notice over time that it's missing some Jisho jlpt words, especially words with two pronunciations. For example 敵 (てき、かたき) or 落下, it's not really a big deal though
