I’ve just published a deck for Volume 1 of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱). Check it here! ^^

I know I’ve been slow with publishing these decks, sorry about that. A bit busy with creating new features lately :stuck_out_tongue:


@neicul, with the new layouts… if I click on the input box, the word “English/Reading” will only disappear if I start typing. Which means that if I click in the box without writing, the “|” from the mouse will be there with the word “English/Reading” and it feels a bit weird.

I think the subtitle for the type of card should disappear once we click on the input box :thinking:


This is browser specific default behavior afaik, won’t be able to do much about it I think.

I have a question. What do we do if we want to suggest one of the words is not a real word? For example, I just came across てる in jprspereira’s 少女終末旅行 deck, but it’s pulling it from a word that end in ~てる, which is just the shorthand for ~ている and not really a word.

You can just leave a comment on the card that it might be better to delete it without actually altering values for the proposal.

Then the creator can decide what to do with it and notifiy me if the card needs to be deleted from the community deck as well.

I believe we took care of this particular card a few hours ago by the way :open_mouth:

By the way, once again thanks for all the proposals so far, I’ve been accepting them whenever I see them pop up ^^


Alright, sounds good. Thanks.

And no problem. Glad to be of help.


Yes, we did :stuck_out_tongue:


Curious, how does the text parsing work for a manga? Let’s say we already have the plain text isolated in a file, how is that text broken down into vocabulary terms?

How do I go about searching decks by Values? For example, for the 少女終末旅行 deck if I wanted to search for everything with 3+ frequency?

Thanks for making the deck. It feels like Im actually reading the manga now


I have a possible feature request. When you search a deck ([deck name] → All Cards), I believe it would be best if it prioritized cards with the searched value within the main value of the card. As it is, it appears to search all values, and then gives anything which contained what you searched as a value in index order. For example, I was searching the 涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱 deck to see whether 「宇宙人」 was already in the deck or not, but ended up having to search for 宇宙, loading all the cards, and then using ctrl+f for 「宇宙人」 in order to check manually.


As always, thanks :slight_smile:

Like you said, the first step is getting all the text somehow. After that the parser will disect anything you give to it (for more info check as I use a js variant of this). Then only the relevant parts of speech (verbs, nouns, adverbs etc) are matched with my jmdict database to generate a csv file. After which it can be imported into a deck in Kitsun.

Right now you’d still have to search for Frequency 4, Frequency 5 and so on.

Having better search tools is still high on my priority list and should be coming soonish.

@sloa123 I agree with what you are saying, but seeing as Kitsun templates are dynamic, I would not know which field to give priority. This is actually the main problem I am currently struggling with as I also want to make it so that vocab between decks is shared and will be hibernated based on your progress in another deck.

Now it would be easy to do this for the official template only, as I made it and know whether a card is using it, but for templates made by users this would be a bigger problem.

I’m constantly thinking and brainstorming with others about this issue though, so hopefully I will have a decent solution for this soon :slight_smile:

I’m sure you’ve already thought about it, but wouldn’t it be possible to set one as the default, and then be able to switch how it prioritizes within the “advanced search” section?

edit: I haven’t really messed around with making a new template, so I’m not sure, but for example, I would think you could have the additional sections added from the user created templates be automatically added as another section within the search priority list.

The thing is that a deck can contain multiple templates, because each card can have a different template. Meaning you’d have to get a list of all templates in the deck and then let the user decide which fields to search in. UI/UX-wise this would be quite the horror I think.

So in order to do this well, I’m thinking about letting the user decide during template creation, what the main field is (this is mainly for auto-hibernating cards after lessons. E.g. when learning a word in Deck A → auto hibernate the card with the same main value in all other decks). However, this would require a huge overhaul in the code, so I’m still trying to think of other solutions (e.g. syncing Deck A with Deck B after letting the user decide the main fields to match with).

Sorry for going all technical, I figured maybe someone would have a fresh new idea on how to do this :slight_smile:


@neicul Will there be something (Kitsun extension) like @seanblue 's WK Dashboard SRS and Leech Breakdown and @seanblue 's WK Show Specific SRS Levels in Review on Kitsun?



New Features:

  • Feedback system: Changes proposed by the user are now highlighted when it differs from the original values

  • Deck Overview - You can now check how many cards you have in each SRS level specifically. Hover over (or tap on mobile) the fennec or kit counts to see the specific levels. @Ryouki @Oshin


  • New Layout Field: {{enteredanswer}} has been added. This field will display the answer that was entered on the front, or the ID of the element that was clicked (for multiple choice cards). You can use this field only on the backside. Usecase: Showing something like You entered XXX. The answer was ZZZ on the back.

  • Multiple Choice Functionality improvements:

    • When Kitsun detects the multiple choice fields, it will remove the default flip buttons at the front during quiz and reviews. This way the user is forced to click one of the options.
    • It will add a next button on the backside, so the user can advance to the next quiz item/review.
    • Clicking one of the options will flip the card and set it as correct or wrong (based on what was clicked). If lightning mode is on and the answer was correct, it will go to the next card right away.
    • the clickedanswer class will be added to the clicked id at the backside of the card. This can be used to give a style to the selected answer.


  • {{addclass:ids}} and {{click:ids}} layout types should now properly work on both the back and front side of a card.

Edit2: Done deploying, refresh the page if you don’t see the changes yet :slight_smile:


Showing the SRS numbers during reviews is on the list for the next update.

I’m not sure about showing the leech counts per rank yet, I’ll think about it.


Wow, I feel loved right now! :blush:


Forgot to mention something, updated the post a bit :stuck_out_tongue:
