WaniKani Content Update: July 4, 2019

Happy July! :fireworks:

We’re going to be adding a bit more content to WaniKani this Thursday, July 4, 2019. As with the last update, it will be a small number of kanji (7) and some related vocabulary (more than 7).

There won’t be any downtime on the site, the items will simply appear and then trickle into the lessons of those of you at the right levels. You don’t have to do anything to get the new items.


The update is live!

I’ve listed all of the new items below for your convenience. As always, please give the system some time (it can take a few hours) to add all of the items to your accounts. And if you see any typos/errors please feel free to either post them here or shoot me and email: hello@wanikani.com

I’m just curious, what happens if kanji/vocab are added to a level you’ve already passed? Does the system push it through to you, or do you just bypass it?

The lessons will be added to your queue. They’ll appear at the beginning of it, if you have the default lessons ordering on too.

This is unrelated, but I just wanted to let you know that you have the greatest username I’ve ever seen.

Yeah it gets pushed to the top of your next lesson queue. There was an update a few months ago that changed the names of radicals and they were the all I saw for the next few days.

Woohoo!! This is the way to do it!

Fourth of July kanji? Clearly they’re not kanji, but Freedom Characters.

I don’t know if you saw @anon20839864, but someone posted recently a very cool analysis of the 150 most common words with non-WK kanji, maybe it could help in the selection process :grinning:
