The core 10K is the 10K most frequently used words in Japanese. Torii then sub-divides it in JLPT levels. So it’ll teach N5-related words of the 10K first, then N4, etc., etc.
If it can be set to just highest frequency while disregarding JLPT, I didn’t notice in the settings, but I also wasn’t looking very hard.
There is also WaniKani mode on Torii, which will ommit all items that WK covers.
Since it’s free, you can always download and snoop around. The Torii SRS intervals are the same / very similar to the WK ones.
Anki is supposed to be an SRS tool, so it shouldn’t give you reviews once a day unless something was changed in the settings of a deck (since you can alter basically everything in Anki). Not that I know that much about Anki, since I only puttered around with it for an afternoon or two.
The more time spent reading, the better, I’d say. Seeing the language in actual use, rather than in a vacuum is always good.
I also have finite patience for SRS in a day. A couple of hundred items is okay, but if it’s like 500+ in a day, I start skipping out on reading and listening - the actual fun parts of studying that teach me most about how the language is used in practice.
