Kanjidamage

0.47MB. 0 audio & 212 images. Updated 2012-08-25.

Description

A deck (based on kanjidamage) in which only information I deem necessary for flashcards are included. So things like stroke-order or look-alikes are left out because they can be separetely looked up should there be a need. The main purpose is to teach the kanji, its onyomi, kunyomi and lastly some compound words. Do note though that the deck's purpose isn't to cover every kunyomi/onyomi reading there is, but those or a fraction of them that appear on kanjidamage. I haven't included the lengthy nuance difference explanations for some compound words or kunyomi that you might see on kanjidamage's dictionary. Mainly because I want to keep the deck tidy and consistent while maintaining the robust features. Get started by reading and comprehending the preface at http://kanjidamage.com/ Check this thread's starting post for useful info concerning the deck, especially if you want to synchronize the decks http://kanjidamage.21.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=18

Anki2 broke my deck :(
Posted on 2014-02-01

Original deck maker here. It seems like the new version of anki has messed up the layout a bit. Pictures etc. aren't displaying properly and some kanji are miniaturized instead of bolded. It's a great deck though if I may say so myself, and it made learning kanji a breeze for me and others when it was actually functioning PROPERLY. I'm planning on renewing and polishing the deck when I get back to reviewing kanji. No clue as to when, however.

katakana for "ichi"???
Posted on 2013-08-22

Maybe I am confused, but seeing ICHI for the first Kanji written in Katakana seems very contraproductive to me. Do I have a wrong setup with the fonts maybe?

Also a lot of the KanjiDamage info is missing like the author said, he included only what he deemed necessary.

Also I cannot seem to locate the images for this deck anywhere.

broken images?
Posted on 2013-08-18

tried this both on windows and droid...
the images seem to be missing.
e.g number 94 numeral4
even the example on ankiweb has in one card the little question mark image for broken link to .jpg

Very useful

Great deck, I really enjoy the approuch kanjidamage uses in teaching the radicals first. It teaches the kanji in an unusual order definetely but this is to its own benefit because it makes completing the deck in earnest much easier. I started in the fall and have been sporadically using the deck since because life gets you busy. I am current 55% done and plan to fully mature the deck this summer.

OK but...

a bit backwards no? Showing key word and then the kanji?

Really excited to try this..
Posted on 2013-01-03

But I guess it doesn't work for anki 2? When I download it and try to study it an error shows saying that I should check the database.. But after that it's as if the deck has no cards at all?

This is an excellent and fun deck. I've finally decided to learn kanji in earnest, and with this deck and a Note 2 to practice writing with, it's going great. I prefer KanjiDamage to Heisig, as you are forced to learn the readings and you will naturally pick up some kunyomi and jukugo along the way.

I've found that making a few edits helps with the learning. For example, changing the HE and SHE mnemonics to HE-MAN and SHE-RA helps to differentiate between ordinary narrative and onyomi flags.

At about 110 reviews (~75 minutes) per day , I've managed to encounter 16% of the deck in 33 days, so it seems like it will take around 8-10 months total to mature the deck.
