I like the Visually Similar Kanji one. Really helps to see the kanji you’re getting mixed up side by side so you can see “oh, of course! That one has the leader radical and the other doesn’t. Duh!”

The ignore script has saved my life a million times. Only to be used responsibly though.

To clarify for OP, this is either Double Check or Override. The former is better implemented than the latter.

VERY important script. Self congratulating is essential.

That self-study script is exactly what I needed! I have such a hard time remembering new vocab

My image for that script

The dashboard progress plus script is a great one too for seeing when you’ll unlock new kanji or guru items

I also remember hearing that there was a script that would color text based on if it was kun or on but I can’t seem to find it again. Does anyone know what it’s called?

There is a script for that? Are you kidding me? How did I miss that?!

Guess I’ll have to reset to level 1 …

Also, I very carefully and cautiously want to recommend the reorder script.
It allows you to change the order in which review or lesson items are shown. This is especially helpful when you are aiming to go at maximum speed. With this, you can easily put the items of your current level at the front of your review queue.
However, a few warnings first!

  • Only start using this script when you’re already a few levels into Wanikani (let’s say 5-6-7 or something)
  • Be sure that you also do your other reviews! I have seen people bury themselves in old reviews, causing them to burn out. Always finish your reviews.
  • Never use them for lessons. People use them to skip vocabulary, but once again, people end up with lesson piles of 1000+. Simply make sure that you never use it for lessons.

Also, this is not really a script, but really informative and fun to look at.
Over time, it will show your progress for every single kanji, and show how your Apprentice, Guru, etc. items grow over time.

There’s Katakana Madness which makes ON readings katakana and OnKun Question which specifies which it’s asking for. None which adds color, as far as I know

There is no such thing as essential scripts. I’ve never used any scripts and I’m still fine.

I don’t get it though. What is so good about scripts?

Lots of great extra features
