This a revised deck that combines words from several online and offline resources into one deck. This deck includes every sense of the words as separate cards. It also has a primary meaning, secondary meaning and parts of speech in edition to the kanji and kana. This deck has the kanji whether the actually kanji characters are on the JLPT list or not, so there will be some more difficult kanji in this deck. Changes for 1.1: Different senses are cross referenced on the cards, so that if you see one word it will give you alternative meanings as well as the alternative senses (which will be tested on another card) Changes for 1.2: Changed kana and kanji font to Meiryo to make it easier to read in Windows Vista+. Windows XP and below will still have the standard font. Mac OS X users should change the font to Hirogina Maru Gothic ProN to make it easier to read. Changed the background to be easier on the eyes and help with retention of the material. Changes for 1.25: I added a special column called 'N5Kanji' you can use this in place of 'Kanji' if you want to only practice N5 level kanji. You can switch the column in Tools -> Manage Note Types... -> Ultimate Layout -> Cards... -> And then change all the fields in the 'template' from 'kanji' to 'N5kanji' and you should be good to go. Changes for 1.3: Added audio for every card from Forvo.com.

The hiragana for 可愛い should be かわいい。
Also had to turn off the pronunciation because so much of the pitch accent is weird and listening to it is actually messing with me and it's hard to ignore.
If you're looking for pronunciation stuff just go to forvo, I particularly like the user strawberrybrown and there's someone like usagi-something. They seem to have consistent/popular accents.

But still thank you very much! I love it. Very convenient

Pronounciation is wrong
If you care about pitch accent, don't download

I modified this deck to add images, I want to share it with everyone, how can I send it to the creator of this deck?

30 seconds in and 飴 (ame, candy) has the SAME pronunciation as 雨 (ame, rain)
Not useful if you want to learn vocab plus the right way to pronounce the words.

It has a lot of useful vocab

Absolutely amazing. Skeptical at first because of the negative reviews, but now I see they are very undeserved. Thank you for making a great deck to study with!

Since I did RTK before I customized the notes to display both kana and kanji and it works well to learn vocabulary and kanji pronunciations. I really like to try guessing from audio only before giving a look to the kana/kanji.

I have studied with this deck for 2 months.
It is the best one here imo.
Haven’t found any typo/mistake. Thank you!

Tho I wish this same author could make a N4 deck too :(... The ones I find are baaad. Full of errors (-looking at u, Nihongoshark jlpt decks)

Really good deck, sounds are really useful and the translations seem better than most. First thing I did was remove the bolding on the Kanji though, the lines are so thick that it makes them difficult to read for a newbie like me.

Awesome work!

Really nice

That's great:
- audios with every vocabulary

That could made the deck even greater:
- sample sentence to each vocabulary would be fine
- Kanji are not written at all, Kanjis with Furagana would be better

Very good

Well, the deck has the promised content. I cannot even think how much effort goes into such a think and thus I'd like to thank you for this.

Kanji makes it easier

I know knowing and starting to recognise all these kanjis have a lot of advantages. But, as I am practising for JLPT N5, and this deck focuses on the same. Its a little bit easier with all the kanjis which are not part of JLPT N5.

Although I think its a great deck and thank you for putting all the effort in making it. Keep up the good work. :)

Successfully used this deck when I studied for the test

I used this deck to prepare for the JLPT N5 test. I had a look at a few decks, and this was the one I liked best. In contrast to the last reviewer, I really appreciated having even those kanji which are not required for this level of the test.
A handful of kanji not part of the level 5 tests I knew from my Japanese class, a few more I recognised from "remembering the Kanji", and others I have learned in the month since I did the test (and am happy everytime I recognise a new one when the cards from this deck pop up from revision)..., and those I don't know I can always ignore.
I configured my cards so that both kanji in large and furigana in small font are shown on the question card.

Easy with the Kanji

Here is the thing I don't understand about some of these JLPT lists. If I am going to write the JLPT N5 test, chances are that my knowledge of Kanji is around the 103 characters required by the test. This means any characters that are NOT on the test should NOT be drilled. 方 and 青 (and many others) should be replaced by Hiragana or accompanied by Furigana. My main focus would on the vocabulary and the Kanji that will be on the test.

Despite all the efforts put into the deck, the focus on everything Kanji make this deck meaningless.
