I was hoping to repeat the heroic review of last weekend, but alas it was not to be. For most of my review sessions, I got frustrated and gave up after only five minutes, and I couldnโ€™t really get into the mood for studying Japanese in the first place. Still, I made decent progress nevertheless.

I got a surprising amount of reviews done this morning, though the afternoon sessions didnโ€™t go well, much like yesterday.

I just had a really epic review session.

When doing reviews, Iโ€™ll often miss so many that get frustrated and ready to give up after only a few minutes and even 15 minutes is an unusually long review session for me. But this morning, I got lucky and did well enough that I didnโ€™t get frustrated for a very long time. I just kept going and going for 33 minutes!

Thatโ€™s more time than Iโ€™ve spent most days lately across three different review sessions! In fact, I think thatโ€™s by far the longest review session Iโ€™ve had since starting this entire challenge.

I also managed to burn a much larger number of items than usual, though some were just lucky guesses.


Thatโ€™s so exciting! Hope it helps you keep the momentum going with this giant stack of reviews

Here are some stats for the last month. Iโ€™m amazed by how smoothly my accuracy decreases with level. I would have expected some disruptions to the pattern just by random variation or the like.

Overall accuracy: 66.576% (2209/3318)

Proportion of reviews by level:
1-5: 11.2%
6-10: 13.2%
11-15: 12.7%
16-20: 12.1%
21-25: 11.2%
26-30: 11.3%
31-35: 9.6%
36-40: 9.9%
41-45: 8.0%
46-50: 0.8%
51-55: 0.0%
56-60: 0.0%

Accuracy by level:
1-5: 84.3% (312/370)
6-10: 81.3% (357/439)
11-15: 75.4% (319/423)
16-20: 73.2% (295/403)
21-25: 67.0% (248/370)
26-30: 58.6% (219/374)
31-35: 56.4% (180/319)
36-40: 48.9% (160/327)
41-45: 41.0% (109/266)
46-50: 37.0% (10/27)

In case youโ€™re curious, here are the corresponding stats for last year, when I was going through Wanikani for the first time. They look quite different!

I guess that also explains why I was originally so optimistic about this challenge. Iโ€™d be making quite a bit more progress with an 82% accuracy rate even at the high levels. Instead, I had to reset to level 46 and am still not getting anywhere close to that.

Overall accuracy: 82.645% (88360/106915)

Proportion of reviews by level:
1-5: 8.2%
6-10: 10.9%
11-15: 10.6%

In the latest example of โ€œlol SRS intervalsโ€, I just had a review session where ๅŠ่ฃธ came up, and I of course had no idea what it was and missed it. Then just a minute or two later, ๅ…จ่ฃธ came up, and since I knew what ่ฃธ meant from before, I successfully burned it, even though thereโ€™s no way I would have ever gotten it normally. Itโ€™s stuff like this that makes me not take the constant flood of โ€œyouโ€™re ruining your SRS intervalsโ€ complaints seriously.

Incidentally, apparently ๅŠ่ฃธ and ๅ…จ่ฃธ are so obscure that even Googleโ€™s IME doesnโ€™t know about them. I had to manually copy paste them from Wanikani. Wow.

There were also a lot of deja vue instances this session, where a word like ไป or ่ฆชๅ‹ would come up and Iโ€™m like โ€œall right, Iโ€™ve got this because I remember missing it before and I remember the answer this timeโ€, only to see that green โ€œburnedโ€ message pop up which means that it never came up for review before.

Iโ€™m not sure exactly what causes this. In some cases, it may be because I missed a closely related review item (e.g. kanji vs vocab) then looked at its WK page and saw the other item there, but it doesnโ€™t feel like that is what happened in those cases here. Oh well, a mystery for the ages.

This review session also brought me up to exactly 999 burned items, though I admittedly started at 351 due to not resurrecting burned radicals.

Sorry for the delay! Added now :smiley:


I wrote a script to find my leeches, which I decided to define as items that I missed at least twice in the last 62 days, and which I missed on the most recent review.

Out of curiosity, I also calculated the โ€œantileechโ€ count, those that I got right at least twice in the last 62 days and whose most recent review was correct. There are a lot more of these, although thatโ€™s not exactly surprising given the large number of easy resurrected items floating around.

Your accuracy seems to be improving, which is really cool. Good luck with the future sessions!
