What does this mean? (WaniKani layout Q.)

Ive just started level 3 (it’s a lot but I’m working through it slowly, it’s been about 1 month so far, trying to get in the swing of things) and I have no clue what this means (see screenshot). It doesn’t seem to affect anything too much but it seems interesting.
Thanks

Those are the vocab’s variants of pitch accent.

Pretty sure that’s a script you’ve got installed too, rather than vanilla WaniKani.

Unless they incorporated that while I wasn’t paying attention.

Same. The font and layout don’t look like vanilla WaniKani to me either.

I believe that’s Flaming Durtles.
The button style definitely is, and the curvy font is a trendy Android thing, these days.

“These days”. Definitely had an option to switch to that pre android era. Always found it weird when people went for the less legible ones.

My previous Android phone offered this font as an option in the Font menu. Also, many of my colleagues would use Comic Sans for an unknown reason.

I would use comic sans for the meme of it. My brother is seriously using Comic Mono as his programming font

I didn’t say that we only just got the option, I said that it’s trendy to do so now.
I see it way more on screenshots or friends’ phones now than I remember years ago.

And it does seem to be Android specific. PCs certainly had the ability to change fonts globally for longer than Android exists. But I see that used much less than on Android.
