おめでとう :confetti_ball: :tada: :crabigator:
Good work it seems lots of people reach level 60 right now. We pretty much have a level 60 thread every day.


Congratulations on making it to the end! :partying_face: :confetti_ball:

You’ve deserved this cake! :cake: :tada:

Truly impressive speed and consistency! :star_struck: I’ll be stealing that that tip about sneaking a peek on upcoming items if I have downtown to make lessons go easier! ^>^

hey, congrats!

can you say a bit more about the scripts you used? no idea what you re talking about

I listed the scripts I had but I can go over them a bit.

The first one is just the basic WK Open Framework script, which is more of a super script that many other scripts use. Can be found here.

The second script, and probably the most important one I used, was the reorder script. This lets me re-order the lessons and reviews that WaniKani gives me, so I can prioritize radical and kanji lessons after leveling up (and also progress blocking review items when they hit their next SRS stage). You can find this script here.

Another useful script was the Override script, which basically just adds an undo (“Ignore Answer”) button to the reviews page. This is useful for if you fat finger a response (i and u are so close to each other on the keyboard sometimes) or if you put in an obvious synonym that WaniKani doesn’t recognize (i.e. “bravely fight” instead of “fight bravely”). This script can be found here.

I also had the heatmap script installed. It gives you an overview of how many reviews you’re doing per day, here’s a screenshot of my heatmap.

It’s not as important as the others above, but it’s fun to have some more stats as you go along. You can find this script here.

And the last script I have installed is the leeches script, which just shows you your worst performing items. I didn’t really find this one too useful, but it can be important to know which items you need to spend some extra time reviewing. You can find this one here.



Your speed and consistency is amazing. This is great. :+1: :partying_face:

This heatmap shows remarkable consistency in doing reviews. This is impressive again.

This script does more that give an overview of reviews. If you click on a day it shows statistics on what was done that day, including accuracy stats. You can also drag over days to get stats on the whole period.

With the accuracy you have there shouldn’t be much need to study leeches. I think the script you used is a bit obsolete because a more full featured available. The replacement is better suited to those who need to actively study their leeches because it can display meanings and readings in popups. This is convenient when reviewing the leeches. There are features for those who want to cram their burned items as well.

I am partial because I am the author of the replacement script. But for those who want to try it out it is here.


That’s impressive stuff!

Congratularions Girakacheezer-先輩! What an amazing achievement!

Good to hear that you are still going to be doing WK. Hope you will still be around the forums.

Do you mind if I ask what these are? Just curious what material you would be planning to do after the golden 60. :slightly_smiling_face:

I wish you all the best in your future endeavors 先輩! And here is the :cake:

Sure thing! Here’s my little manga collection so far.

  • One Punch Man 1 - 7, 10, and 16
  • Keroro Gunsou 1 - 5
  • Lucky Star 2 - 3
  • Nichijou 1 - 5
  • Yotsuba 1 - 6
  • My Hero Academia 1 - 4, and 18

I also have Dangan Ronpa 2 on Steam which I can play in Japanese (played through the first in Japanese already), and I also have the Japanese switch release of Cave Story+.


@girakacheezer congratulations! Happy for you!

I was waiting for your last post in the 0/0 streak topic. But I totally missed this lv 60 post of yours.

Does this make you the fastest finisher of Wanikani?

Of the many days that you finish in less than 7 days. How did you do it? As in how did you manage the time? I find it hard to get all the reviews done asap, since they would start to drift around the clock and would end up being in the middle of my sleep time.

I don’t know if I’m the fastest finisher so far, but I do believe there is another WK user on the forums who is aiming for an even faster completion time.

As for the 6d20h levels, the main strategy was doing 15-20 reviews for every hour I was awake, with normal waking hours being like 8am to 12am. If reviews popped up during the night I would normally let them roll over to the next morning. But, if progress blocking reviews were scheduled for the middle of the night, I would set an alarm to wake up at that hour and only do the progress blocking reviews. Progress blocking reviews are always either radicals (the first half of the level), or kanji (the second half). Since my phone app (Flaming Durtles) was able to reorder reviews so that the progression reviews came up first, this means I had at most 15-20 reviews to do in the middle of the night (but more often it was around 5-10 reviews). So it wasn’t too hard to wake up, do the reviews, and then go right back to sleep.

I stopped doing this during the fast levels though, since every level is like 30+ progress blocking reviews all at once, and god forbid you had to level up in the middle of the night and tackle 30+ lessons at the same time. So I just stuck to a 3d12h cycle once the fast levels came.

EDIT: Also, for the 0/0 thread, I’m waiting until I’m done all my level 60 lessons (aka all the lessons in the entirety of WaniKani) to post there again.

I tried waking up once, then decided I hate the idea haha. Thats a lot of dedication from you! Even if its not that many reviews. I will aim for 7 days and not 6 days 20 hours, but I must admit, going max speed has its thrill.I did it for lv2 and 3, then life kinda got in the way and I couldn’t do review right on the hour.

I still want to reach lv 60 in less than a year tho! 365 days.
If I’m correct, there are 43 normal levels, and 16 fast levels (including lv 1 and 2, excluding the lv60 itself).
If I take 3.5 days per fast levels, I will have 7 days 4 hours ish per normal levels.
Definitely doable!

Congratz again on your Wanikani speedrunning. I hope you do get the world record lol.

I will be waiting for your final 0/0 thread then! Goodluck with your further study!
I bet it feels weirdly empty not that there is no more wanikani lessons to do.
