Wanikani Confessions

Just used ignore on the 方 radical because I put way instead of direction and decided that I don’t care

Wanikani is my excuse for not keeping up with grammar…


Ditto, I tend to avoid vocab lessons on WK too >.>

At this point, we basically use it as a verb so your name could get mentioned in reference to other people. :stuck_out_tongue:



  1. to reset your level by an order of magnitude on WaniKani.

“I Leebo’d from 40 to 4 yesterday. It was a touch decision but my review pile was crazy man”

synonyms: to reset, to revert;


  1. the act of resetting ones level by a significant degree.

“Can you believe that @jprspereira did a Leebo last week? I guess he just had to finish in under one year after @Koichi joked about it on the podcast.”

synonyms: reset, revert,

What is this? The first I’ve heard of it.


Joke’s on me for buying lifetime the old fashioned way. :rofl:


That’s true, but that’s not what “to Leebo” means.
At least, it used to mean to correctly reply to a question faster than anyone else.
Originated back in the days when seeing “Leebo is replying” meant you could just cancel your own reply.
Usually used as

Edit: Leebo’d

when, upon posting, you realize someone had just said the same thing a second ago.


with better wording, examples and so to the point you think to yourself, well I didn’t know that I didn’t know that much


I’m not leveling on purpose (partly cuz too busy) so that I can get 42 days on level 42. Almost there too, I think!

Edit: holy heck I just checked and it actually at 42 days 20 hours so it’s time to get cracking on some lessons :cold_sweat:


Not to be confused with being ninja’d, which is a broader concept of someone quickly replying before you. I would like to reserve leebo’ing for either first posts in a thread asking about something, or serious JP questions in general, but by now most people seem to use it instead of ninja’ing.
