Level 6 Radical for Loiter(彳)in Level 5 Radical Go(行)


Pretty much as the topic says.

Finishing up my new Level 5 unlocks, I got to the radical Go (行) which includes (and mentions) the radical for Loiter (彳) in it’s mnemonic. It’s not really an issue for me, since 行 is an exceedingly common kanji that I already recognize, but I just wanted to make a note of it, since it seems weird (and slightly out of order) to have a radical in Level 5 mention another one that users won’t learn until the next level. As you can see, I had to go search for the Loiter radical just to be sure that I know what was being referred to here.


It’s times like these that we say @Kristen please help us…

Or email Wanikani team directly…


I noticed this recently as well. I was going to build a collection of small mistakes like this that I could email to WaniKani when I reach a higher level. I thought it would take up more time for both sides reporting each item individually.

I don’t know how the WaniKani team feel, though.


We’re already aware of this. It should be fixed with our radical revamp that’s coming sooooooon(tmtmtm).

How many Kanji made up of just one radical are there?

Thank you for your quick reply!!
