My 旅路 to Zero Reviews (DONE)

Okay, so I’ve been procrastinating my WK reviews for such a long time now and thought if I put the spotlight on my issues I might be able to get back on track and maybe never get off it ever again.

I was level 37 in spring and thought I’d easily reach level 60 before the year ends. Now I’m at the half-way mark once again… I hadn’t done my reviews for a while and therefore forgot a lot of stuff and ended up resetting. I’ve barely done any reviews since then and now I’m sitting at this clusterduck.

1010 reviews and almost 60% of those are burn reviews, yay me. I already know this isn’t gonna go well but I have to power through it. I will do at least 100 reviews every day starting now.

Also, I’m studying on the side as well, so just because I haven’t done my WK in some time doesn’t mean I didn’t study Japanese in all these months. I have everything in Japanese, from Windows to Android. I play all my games in Japanese if supported and put every unknown word into HouHou, which nets me 10+ new words on some days. I also make sure to NOT study any words that are taught on WaniKani, hence why it’s so important to reach level 60.

tl:dr I didn’t to diddly squat so now I have 1010 reviews and I’m gonna do at least 100 every day and post the results here.

Anyways, let’s go.

Can’t believe we’re already getting the sequel to this thread.

Joking aside, good luck!


That thread is actually what made me do this one. :blush:

Edit: The results are in and just like I thought, it’s a bit messy. Though my answers where usually pretty close. Now onto BISHBASHBOSH to cram all the wrong answers!


That’s a great session with a backlog! Most of mine have been in the 50-59% range… You can do it! :partying_face:


Good luck! I got myself stuck in a pile of reviews a few months ago and I thought I’d never see 0/0 again, but it’s definitely possible! (Though my accuracy took quite a hit. ToT)

My favorite part was watching this little guy slowly climbing the mountain…
Wanikani 0 Reviews
(I wish I would’ve taken a screenshot when I still had thousands of reviews, but I honestly thought I was imagining the movement at first.)


If you search for it, you’ll find all the pics, but here’s mine right now:


Ahh, that gives me flashbacks. I swear I’ll never miss a day (or month) of reviews again. 頑張って!

Leave it to Wanikani-ers to have a forum topic for everything. Thanks for the link. ^^


Of course! Wouldn’t you expect that in a forum with so many POLL threads? Discourse’s search button actually works okay enough that you can check pretty quickly… :stuck_out_tongue:

From 915 to 815. It doesn’t show all 100 reviews because I accidentally closed the tab mid session.


What’s the userscript for a dark theme?

That is Breeze Dark

But we need it in userscript form, that’s a user-style!

You can install styles as scripts

So, I did find the GM_addStyle function, but how would do you do that and keep the @var and @advanced part working in the Breeze Dark script?

Day 4.

Day 5. I’m changing my approach to doing reviews now, if I can remember the answer in a matter of a few seconds then I’ll purposely fail the answer. If I need minutes to remember a word then IMO I don’t know it well enough.

The result still sucks though.
