If you do ever decide to use Anki for premade decks, like @Kumirei already said, they’re usually ordered already.
If you want to progressively unlock cards with a certain tag, you can suspend all or some in the note browser to “pause” them. Most vocab decks based on books will have tags for chapters etc that you can use to filter with (you can temporarily cram a whole chapter for example, with a filtered deck).
Kitsune is probably great too But Anki isn’t as bad as the internet makes it sound, and it’s also free and open source (any developer can contribute improvements to the software, and we can all spend our money on more books ).
From the posts I’ve seen around here, the creator of that Kitsune deck used to be a heavy user of Anki. He made some wanikani-styled decks (with text input): https://community.wanikani.com/t/some-supplemental-material/8121
He also made some (still) helpful tutorials: [Anki] Tutorials. Here’s one he made for suspending cards: https://youtu.be/kfXBHYPq4RA
