Do burnt items come back?

Hello everyone. After I burn an item, does it still come back for reviews or is it lost in the sea of crispy black turtles never to be found again. I want to carry on with WK but I can’t afford the paid version, so until I find a job I would like to drag out my learning so that I don’t forget what I have studied.

Sorry, I am a beginner… :’)

Thanks for the help!

P.S. This is my first post :]

They don’t come back unless you make them to (you can revive burnt items manually or using a script).

May I ask how I go about doing that?

you can go to the item page. there will be a button at the bottom of the page. it will take at least six months to burn an item, though, depending on how often you make mistakes. you could also fail items on purpose, so you see them more often.


Welcome to the community! ^^

And don’t worry - you won’t get your first burns until 6 months in, so you have plenty of time. ^^

wow, people are so nice here! It is tempting to become a Wanikani shut-in where my life revolves around reviews … :slight_smile:

Thank you for the help.


W-Wait… that wasn’t what I was supposed to do?



Of course if I attain full access to wanikani I would probably end up wiring my brain to it. I need to hold back until I can afford it.

Personally, I think someone needs to be at least a bit obsessive when a learning a language. So your definitely not at fault. ;]
