Anybody Have Any Explanation For This phenomenon

Probably because the word is usually written in kana and not kanji. And alot of other associated kanji with the radical is more common and “lower level”.

This is true, and to build on it, they actually used to teach the kanji at a lower level, but moved it up recently, because teaching a word rarely shown in kanji in that form so early was causing more harm than good for new learners.

But To Put It Aside Until level 51 It Is Not Irrelevant

What’s common here is the word また, seeing it in kanji however is very rare. It’s nearly always written in kana. Learning the word また is important early on, but knowing that 又 is its kanji can be put off until later.

Same thing goes for a lot of words usually written in kana. ここ is very common, however you don’t really need to know that it can be written as 此処 early on.

The “again” Kanji used to be part of the early levels, along with samurai, long time, and some others. In the waves of updates they’ve deemed that these kanji should appear later rather than sooner I guess. Don’t know why, I am sure there is a good reason
