All in One Kanji Deck

Description

This deck contains ALL information you may need for a kanji. It includes ALL 2136 Jouyou Kanji + JLPT N5 to N1's Kanji + 861 Jinmeiyou Kanji + 2500 Most Frequent Kanji + 3007 Kanji from Heisig's book + even more. However, I recommend focusing on Jouyou Kanji, as almost everything you see in Japanese or even the JLPT N1 test doesn't go beyond the jouyou list. These 2136 Jouyou Kanji were ordered to appear first in this deck (in school grade order). The rest (Jinmeiyou, etc) should only be for reference. A little info about Jouyou Kanji: This list was announced officially by the Japanese Ministry of Education. It is also a list of permitted characters and readings for use in official government documents (and maybe most other written works as well, like newspaper or textbook), that means kanji outside this list should be written in hiragana or have furigana to show readings. Mastering these 2136 even helps you gain Level 2 in Kanken, the kanji test for native Japanese (10 levels, level 1 is the hardest). More info here: https://goo.gl/2GsbV5 and https://goo.gl/nXnGGO . I have also made various tags for your custom study: JLPT, Jouyou Grade, Frequency, Jinmeiyou, Theme & Concept.. And also, I recommend you learn radical (component in kanji) first, which make kanji much easier to learn. A radical deck can be found here: https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/1044119361 (made by me too). If you follow Heisig's order, I don't think you need this radical deck as you learn radicals along with kanji. Info Included: -English meaning, reading (onyomi, kunyomi, nanori). Nanori is for reference, has separate line with kunyomi. -Number of strokes and stroke order. -Example Compound Word -Kanji Level (JLPT Level, Jouyou Grade, Frequency). The lower the frequency is, the more popular the kanji is. "Grade S" means kanji learned in Secondary school in Japan. -A link to Koohii website and 2 offline Koohii Stories help you remember the kanji. -Components of the kanji. -Other Info: Traditional Form, Radical info, Classification (if you care: http://goo.gl/InVXqP ) Note1: For stroke order working, download and install font from this: http://www.nihilist.org.uk/. You just need to download the font file, which is KanjiStrokeOrders_v3.001.ttf , then install it. If you're using android phone, put the font in /sdcard/AnkiDroid/fonts (you may need to create folder "fonts"). If the font doesn't work, try renaming it to "KanjiStrokeOrders" (remove the "_v3.001") Note2: Kanji not in 2136 Jouyou list (which I tagged "gradeS+") may not have all the information mentioned above. Note 3: Each note in this deck has 2 cards, recognition and recall. If you find that inefficient or want to focus on reading kanji, you can delete or suspend all recall cards. Just go to Browser, sort by card type, choose the cards and hit 'suspend' or 'delete'. Update Aug 18: (Important) - Reordered the whole deck to a more logical order. Previous order is by grade then onyomi. Here is the new order: ・First 1006 Kanji (Grade 1-6): Reorder to match the actual fixed order learned in Japan's School (very logical order in my opinon), in accordance with this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ky%C5%8Diku_kanji ・The rest of Jouyou Kanji: Ordered by JLPT Level then by Frequency. ・The rest of the deck: Jinmeiyou Kanji appear first then ordered by Frequency. - Also, a small new feature was added: clicking the keyword or kanji in mnemonics section will direct you to Koohii website for more stories from community. Update Sep 20: -Added lots of tags based on theme and concept, like colors, shapes, or directions, etc (from this: https://goo.gl/FRXRlE ) Adding tags doesn't affect your studying at all, you don't need to update if you don't need these tags. If you update from the older version of this deck, remember to check database (under "Tools" tab) after updating. Update Nov 7: I made a deck with order from Heisig's RTK book. It's here:https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/215365929 I would not recommend any learning order. Just choose your preferable way of learning. 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. So it's my advice that if you use the RTK order of this deck, you should suspend all kanji outside jouyou list ( maybe just unsuspend the primitives that help you remember later kanji). Update Jan 10: Added reference link to Tangorin site, Jisho.org and Weblio. Also made a little change to the card format. Update Feb 15: I've made a new deck with new order from the latest edition of RTK book, check it here: https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/1862058740. If you start from beginning, you can choose between that new deck and this original deck (the first 2200 kanji in that deck is almost the same as the first 2136 in this deck, except for the different order). Reply to some comments: Thanks for your comments so that I can improve the deck :). About the order: You can merge the updates to the old deck (not quite hard to do so). -First: BACKUP your current deck with current schedule, and do this in a different profile first to see if it works (in PC, it is 'File' -> 'Switch Profile'). -Next, download and open the updated deck in a new profile, import this deck as text. -Make another profile and open the backup deck. This profile is for testing, if it works, do it with your current profile. -Open deck browser, choose the deck, type "is:new" in the search box, hit Enter, and delete all the cards. This makes sure you only delete the new cards, so that your learning cards are still kept as they are. -(Optional but recommended) Add/remove/rename/reorder,etc the Fields to match the updated deck. -Reimport the updated deck as text to this deck: 'File' -> 'Import' -> choose text file -> choose 'Update existing notes...', tick 'Allow HTML...' and check carefully the fields to be imported (you can mess the deck if do it wrong, that's why making the Fields match the new deck is recommended) -> hit 'Import'. -To update the card layout: Just copy the code in 'Cards' (inside Browser) of the new deck and paste it into the old deck (you will have to move between the two profiles). -That's it. Now you have the new order and contents while keeping your learning cards. About Heisig's content in this deck: I tried not to include any content from his book to prevent this deck from being removed due to copyrights problem (many decks were removed some times ago). I think stories form Koohii community are good enough :). Anyway, if you want me to improve something with the deck, feel free to leave a comment :).

STORY: "If a PART OF your BODY begins to SWELL/EXPAND and resembles the SHAPE of a bass DRUM, you’re either pregnant or in desperate need of a diet.".
Koohii Story 2 Which part of your body can change shape and, when it does, swells up and throbs like a drumb? Hmmm...

Great deck! It has everything you need in a sensible order, and if you are doing Heisig, he has a separate deck to download linked in the description. Nothing to complain about!

These kanji are useless my Japanese wife who is very smart also says you do not need to be able to write these, they will also NOT help for JLPT
on 2018-05-07
Tons of info per kanji, and the kanji are useful!
on 2018-05-01
This deck is very complete! It has readings, words and useful technical info. I have difficult to program it with a better interface and change its font (I don't understand so much about Anki's setting and their app Ankidroid), but excepting this question, it's OK

Awesome deck

Thanks for adding the recognition and recall portion in the notes, that is exactly what I was looking for. Do you have a patreon or something to donate to? Feel like for the amount of work you've put into this the least I could do is throw a couple bucks your way.

Nice Deck!

This deck has a lot of information, it's really useful. I was wondering if you mind if I import the deck into www.StudyHerd.com and share it there (for free) as well as Anki? I like their format a little better. Thanks!
on 2017-06-04
Very comprehensive!

All I wanted was a deck that I could use to practice writing Kanji with Spaced Repetition, and this was just what I need! Thank you!

Great Deck

Hey, first, I wanted to thank you for putting in the work to create this great deck, it's the best one available by far!
However, I do have a few questions I was wondering you could maybe answer. When I look at the "notes" table and the "flds" column, I see all the data that goes on the pack of card dumped there without anything seperating them. How does anki generate the html on the cards for this if it can't tell where one field ends and the next begins? I'm guessing that it looks at the "models" row in the "col" table, but I still don't see how it knows how to generate the HTML and what the seperation objects are in the "flds" column. If it's not any inconvenience to you, I'd greatly appreciate a short reply at d4nisg0d@gmail.com. Thanks in advance!

WOW AMAZING

!!!THANK YOU

great

very useful and user friendly

Great

Great deck, truly a one stop shop. I would suggest adding the Kyōiku / Jōyō index to each card, not just the grade, as the kanji are taught in a specific order at school. Will make life easier for those of us who chose to follow this order rather than Heisig's. :)

Actually, why not just put all three indices on each card? RTK 1, RTK 6 and Kyōiku / Jōyō. Then everyone can choose their preferred order and have Anki sort the cards before they start studying.

Great deck! But one question about the updates . . . .

UPDATED 2/29/16: Thanks a ton! to the author for the instructions about updating card order. It was a little confusing to me at first, but I fought my way through and was able to execute the update, including reimporting Heisig stories (even though I rarely seem to use them).

I have been making a lot of progress with this wonderful deck. Many thanks to the author(s), I use this deck almost every day and it's really well-made.
 
However, I loaded it in Summer 2015 and I see that the card order has since been changed. I would love to be able to load the update—sometimes the kanji come up in strange order (e.g., this week I saw 河 before 可)—but I'd rather not have to start over from the beginning (I'm several hundred kanji in at this point, starting over might break my spirit).
 
Can anyone tell me if it's possible to load the updated deck without losing the work I've already done? Thanks in advance, and many thanks to the author(s) for continuing to tweak and improve the deck.
on 2016-02-23
Fantastic!

Thanks for making this great deck.

Have you considered installing the Kanji Stroke Order font on the deck? http://ankisrs.net/docs/manual.html#installing-fonts

I'm not sure how it would work with licensing, etc., but it might make the deck a bit more user-friendly.

Something missing

Why did you left out the Heisig explanations?
It's possible to include them?
on 2015-12-23
Good deck, but you need to know this!

This deck is following the EXACT order of the book "A guide to Reading and Writing Japanese" at the first part(<440 kanji). I did not overcome this amount of kanjis right now.

Also, you >>can<< use heisig's mnemonics and kanji koohii that come with it even if you don't know some of the characters. I also recomend jisho.org to see kanji stroke order. You have to type #kanji 寒 for example, in the search.

Good deck!

Best Kanji List

I just wrote this review to note one mistake:
The Kanji "万" is not tagged as grade2.
on 2015-11-07
Fine deck but...

OK, I'd now rate this deck 5 stars even if you use heisig, PROVIDED you follow the Heisig reordering guidelines given bellow. I'm pretty sure the poster never did Heisig or he would never recommend you mess around with that order--it would be insane to do so I know because followed his recommendation with much regret and I was referencing Kanji 2000 when was trying to learn Kanji 100 (not a real example, hopefully you see the problem). It was extremely awkward. Please also not the deck is double-sided (2 cards per kanji) and that could cause you grief if you're new to Anki. If you've done 200 cards, you've only done 100 kanji. It's a beautiful deck.
