Items added to Wanikani from 2020 to now

Hello fellow turtle enjoyers,

I am making good progress on my Wanikani journey, currently being level 37. As I am slowly transitioning from Wanikani to Anki, I have found a great deck which seems to make things much easier. However, the deck is slightly outdated with the last update being on December 2019. Therefore, I was wondering if there was a way to access a list of every word/kanji/radical that has been added to Wanikani since the beginning of 2020?

Thanks in advance for your help!

It’s available in the API. In particular, wkof can fetch them in the DevTools console (F12 / Inspect Element).

await wkof.include('ItemData')
await wkof.ready('ItemData')
var items = await wkof.ItemData.get_items()
items.filter(it=>it.data.created_at.split('-', 1)[0] >= '2020') // 345 items

About that shared Anki deck, it’s an outright copyright infringement. I think it is ok to create an Anki deck from the API, but not to share it.


Seeing that you have gone beyond Level 30, I would recommend learning vocabularies with Yomichan instead.

If you want to learn by Kanji, look up the Kanji in Kanjipedia or Weblio, then add/unsuspend vocabularies as appropriate.

I continued beyond WaniKani with Core 10k, CoreNai, and then beyond Level 60, for a reason.
