文プロ(Bunpro) : Update! WK API V2 + New Audio - September 1, 2020 - Japanese Grammar SRS Study Site

Update! - September 1, 2020

WK API Version 2!

Bunpro is now compatible with version 2 of the Wanikani API!

Bunpro will now hide furigana for kanji at SRS level 5 (guru) or above.

You can update your API token to version 2 in your settings.

New Audio!

@Asher and Haruna have recorded, edited, and uploaded over 1400 new sentences from N3’s 第一 to N2’s 確かに.

This means that all of the audio for N3 is complete. We have uploaded the last batch of N3 to Bunpro and you can download the files from Google Drive.

The first batch of N2 audio will be made available on Bunpro later tonight. However, you can download it now from Google Drive.

Edit: The N2 audio files are now also available on Bunpro.

Thanks again to Asher and Haruna for all of their hard work.

Cheers!

Your site was perfect for learning N4 grammar, but I could tell it was starting to lack in Audio samples the further I got to the end of N4 and beginning of N3. Thank you so much for keeping your promises to deliver more much needed audio files, might have to upgrade to that life time account now!

It appears that it still says to use API version one in the textbox. You may want to fix this!

@ApexNihon Thank you for your kind words and for your interest in becoming a Lifetime Member. The real thanks go to @Asher and his partner, Haruna Oka, who have spent countless hours recording, editing, and uploading hundreds of audio files only to ask for nothing in return. They are amazing people who have helped Bunpro grow and become more accessible to everyone. Cheers!

@MegaZeroX Nice spot! We have updated the API textbox to request version 2. Cheers!

Hey there!
Sorry to message here, but I can’t log into Bunpro on Chrome via my home PC and work PC - It works in Firefox (Although i’d like to keep in it Chrome). I sent an email to the BunPro feedback email but just waiting for a response.


Well, i just figured it out… Tampermonkey scripts were causing an error when logging in! >< Thanks for your help though! :smiley:

Hi, I noticed that Bunpro is quite slow… At least on Safari - both mobile (on iPhone) and on Desktop (iMac).
Sometimes it just interrupts loading the page and I need to close and open again. Realized that with the lessons in particular.
I don’t have any scripts running.

Every other web page loads fast as usual - Bunpro is the only one where I notice problems. I also checked the connection on my end, there is no issue. I got a 100 MBits at home.

@esutasan Hey! I apologize for the inconvenience. We think that we know what is causing issues on Safari and are working on a fix! Thank you for your patience. Cheers!

I’m currently trying Bunpro, I think I should take the Bunpro default path since it says that the sentences are built on top of each other(?)…if I got that right It will help me with the reviews, but now I don’t know which grammar source will complement it better.

Say I want to go with the default path but then the grammar source I select might have its own structure so I could be reading something for what I haven’t built its basics. Should I just google my way through it or is there a grammar source with the same structure as Bunpro?

You can always use the Dictionary of Japanese Grammar series or any of the links it gives. They may use a grammar point or two in the examples that you won’t have seen, but that is okay. The ordering stops mattering too much after getting to N5/N4 anyways.

It seems the first grammar source is picked carefully so that we don’t feel like we did some kind of jump, I’m just gonna keep exploring and seeing what seems to sit best for me after having more experience with the site, any advice it’s welcomed :relaxed:

I did a quick glance, the first five levels of N5 and the grammar points for Genki1, Minna and TK essentially cover very similar ground; probably because it’s so fundamental. Did you have questions regarding one of these specific sources compared to default? I’m sure someone could comment on their experience with a particular book (here or the BP board)

I was worried that the default path could not be well joined with the provided grammar lessons, but it seems it does, for now, I’ll try to do the first 2 grammar points for each lesson and read a bit of the FAQ to better understand the platform
