Get rid of basic vocab!

I am an intermittent WK-user but regular Japanese-studier. I finally got my reviews down from 1500+ and am excited to start learning new kanji again! But now my lessons are filled with all the basic vocab WK has added, like はい and 生ビール. Is there a way to get rid of these?? They are a waste of time at this point and I just want to learn the kanji/vocab relevant to my level! Is there a script to get rid of them, or any way to opt out?


I’m one of the biggest critics of the kana only vocab, but I wouldn’t call that a basic vocab, in fact, since its addition it’s really cemented the use of 生 as raw/unrefined in my head.

The rest of your criticisms I agree with.


just mark as correct everytime and they will disappear quickly

I always mark radicals like this and they dont bother me.


I use the tsurukame app through the flight test app and there is a setting to filter out kana only vocabulary. If it wasn’t for the developer of that app I would have quit WaniKani.

I think you would need to install/use a custom script for that?

A similar way to just fly past them is to add a place holder synonym for them (e.g. xx) as they come up.

It’s annoying, but you can add synonyms for each of these for something simple like “s” (or “fu”, which is what I prefer, because it makes me feel slightly better). Then any time you see kana you can just “fu”.

If they are so basic just give the correct answer. It’s typing one word, like five seconds max.
