The Ultimate Additional Japanese Resources List!

I am using Kanshudo for sentence mining as I am learning grammar. Each grammar point usually has sentences with that grammar. There will often be a “More examples” link that will give you even more sentences. I go through the sentences list and if I see ones where I can understand most of the vocab in the sentence, I will “favorite” it and the sentence will go into my Favorites flashcard deck. Then I let the SRS do its magic on the flashcards. It seems to work pretty well for me so far.

You can also make grammar flashcards with just the rules on them, but that doesn’t seem to be very useful for me.

Good to know about the information you have shared with us. I think your tips and strategies could help the writers to do their works properly.

I am also learning the japanese language from online Japanese classes in Pune.

I started using and used my token from WK but apparently nothing changed

what actually this integration is supposed to do? I marked N4 for my level but the news even when I select beginner, a lot of articles with complex kanji are appearing.

Anything else I should do?

is kanshudo better than bunpro?

I just created an account on kanshudo and found it very confusing after basics steps done.

No, it’s not better, just different. It was originally built as a Kanji learning site, but they have expanded it to vocab and grammar too. I mainly just use it to find +1 sentences and vocab that Wanikani doesn’t teach.

But yeah, Kanshudo has so much stuff there that it’s a little bit difficult to figure out the best way to use the site.

All the integration does is tell you the WaniKani level of words you look up in the Vocabulary tab.

Maybe some of these YouTube resources should be added to the Ultimate Resource List as well? ^^

It’s rather extensive! :eyes:


Thoughts on collapsing the sections?



Collapsed with Headers

Thoughts on collapsing the sections?
  • Looks good :+1:
  • Don’t change it
  • Not sure
  • It’s okay, I have a suggestion…
  • :fish: Clicky POLL

0 voters

Headings Poll
  • Add headings
  • No headings, just collapsed sections
  • Something else, or mayybe just different headings
  • :fishing_pole_and_fish:

Edit: Added a poll.
Edit edit: Added heading poll.


Collapsed with Headers looks great and gives a much better overview imho. Would buy :upside_down_face:


^^ ditto but I don’t see an option for collapsed with (i’d like to vote this one) or without headers on the poll :sweat_smile:

Added a poll for the headings :+1: Poll business is difficult :sweat:


Seems like positive feedback for the collapsed sections + headers, I’ll change it tomorrow :blush:


Hey @Gakushuusha, Bilingual Manga looks like a great resource, but I’m not sure of the legality of the service and wasn’t able to find any disclaimers mentioning whether they had a licence to distribute the content, or any links to the publishers websites.

We don’t want to get the WaniKani team in trouble! So as per Goal 5 [WaniKani Community Goals] I’ve removed the resource for now.


Wow, it looks amazing and clean now! Love the emoji you added, too. Thanks for your work! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


Mikagu has a few useful tools:

  • Immerse with Migaku Browser Extension [$]: Chrome extention which tracks known words and allows easily creating Anki flash cards from web sites and web-based video. (Firefox extension planned.)
  • Mikagu Dictionary: Anki add-on which makes it easier to add dictionary definitions and word audio clips to Anki cards.
  • Migaku Editor: Anki add-on for enhanced editing of Anki cards.
  • Migaku Flexible Grading [$]: Anki add-on to replace review buttons with Fail/Pass buttons, as well as answering from the front of the card.
  • Migaku Japanese: Anki add-on providing Anki note types for text and audio vocabulary and sentence notes. Includes support for adding furigana and pitch access to fields.
  • Migaku Kindle [$]: Anki add-on to create Anki cards from saved Kindle dictionary look-ups.
  • Migaku MPV: MPV plug-in that allows Immerse with Migaku Browser Extension to be used with videos played in MPV.
  • Migaku Vacation: An Anki add-on to schedule days off and account for sick days. Similar to WaniKani’s vacation mode, but with more features.
  • Migaku Retirement: An Anki add-on that can suspend or delete Anki cards that you’ve learned well.

Note: Items marked with [$] require a $5 Patreon subscription to access. I believe the Migaku team plans to release these for free at a later date.


I see! Sorry about that then, I found the site to be very helpful, but I didn’t really think about the legality of it :sweat_smile:.

@Kumirei actually added the emoji a long time ago! But yeah, it’s more mobile friendly now, the list was getting pretty big! And I hope it encourages people to add to the Immersion sections and I think it adds more flexibility to be able to add useful guides to each section, too.

This would be good in Tools under the General practice and tests section. You could link to your breakdown with a [Details] tag after the link.

That’s okay!

Hello everyone!

Recently, I have come across a nice website to learn grammar (they only have until JLPT N3 though). It is called Shirimono. Like Wanikani, it is based on the SRS system to make you memorize them better!

Thanks :pray: I’ve added it to the same section as Duolingo.
