WaniKani Content Overhaul Announcement


#101

Overall, I’m excited for this.

I just hope Mrs. Chou hasn’t left us. So far, I haven’t forgotten a single one of her kanji.


#102

Yeah, what’s with her throwing nails on the street and killing long birds and stuff.


#103

I can’t wait to see the new updates! I am tempted to reset to the beginning again!

I have to admit to being a secret silent skeptic. I thought that the mnemonics and such would never be totally revamped. :wink:

Nobody have better messed with my friend Mrs Chou! :slight_smile:


#104

Surely Mrs Chou is safe?! Imagine what she will do if she is removed!

I’m hoping that as she’s not a pop-culture reference or anything she will remain.


#105

I think that Mrs. Chou would make a good anime character. Once our anime became super-popular, she would be a pop-culture reference. Then, she will get the axe in the 2025 update. :frowning:


#106

Chester is a somewhat old-fashioned male given name. Also, the bottom half looks like a muscly male chest, so there’s that too…


#107

I have no idea what a Mullet is, and now I worry I will never find out. I picture it as a medieval sort of a helmet with a spike on top. (“You put that wide mullet on, and everyone calls you a ひろ”, lovely)

Anyway, exiting news!


#108

Are you planning to reset to level 1?


#109

For Kai I usually think about him.


#110

Oh thank the Crabrigator! Orz
(At my current pace, I’d be at the final apprentice -> Guru transition check on my radicals, the hour after this change takes place.)


#111

I liked the mnemonics of questionable taste :frowning:


#112

Not complaining. Yet.

:wink:


#113

No please keep Hard Gay alive in here, he makes of interesting and cool stories.


#114

The only thing that comes to mind is a sei whale, but I guess it could be confused with the narwhal ones?


#115

Come up with another mnemonic to kill off Hard Gay?.. sei it isn’t so!


#116

I don’t think a lot of people know that particular species, I certainly didn’t. Some people even had trouble with Narwhal, not knowing what it was. Also it can be pronouned /ˈseɪ/ or /ˈsaɪ/ according to Wikipedia, so it’s kinda unclear.

A question: You already mentioned radicals will have “hidden meanings”. Will it also accept the old readings for kanji, or will it just wiggle and expect us to enter the onyomi?


#117

I’ve been really looking forward to learning the mnemonic for percent. Hope that isn’t going.


#119

Lol. That one is amazing.


#120

Mine is something to do with who is and isn’t allowed to wear jeans…


#121

Oh my gosh! Everyone! Did you hear of the fantastic news!?

Oh and almost forgot since I’m so early this time…

First!
