About the Deck

The deck is literally just all the sentences I have gathered over the past 2 or so years of studying Japanese. I originally started with one of the core decks shared on AnkiWeb so I expect the first couple of hundred cards are probably ones I kept from those decks. After the first few hundred though they are all mostly from native sources, mainly anime, drama, manga or books with a few exceptions e.g. sentences from Tae Kim’s grammar guide and a few bilingual cards for programming concepts.

Another thing to note is that as you get further into the deck, a few cards don’t have the correct furigana for the expression field on the back. Most of the time it’s usually just the reading for 何. Sometimes it can be γͺに, others it can be γͺγ‚“. This is something I picked up quickly with a bit of reading, and as it’s a common word I never bothered correcting the furigana that Anki generates. I’ve no doubt that you will quickly pick up the difference between when to read it as γͺγ‚“ or γͺに too though so it shouldn’t be a problem. Other than that I have corrected most of the furigana for the reading section of each card (besides character names as I knew them already and couldn’t be bothered to correct them). The section with the dictionary definition, however, is completely auto generated and may contain errors. The most common one I see a lot is θͺž having the reading of γ‹γŸγ‚Š when it should be ご. So just be aware of this.

I reached a high level of literacy by studying the cards in this deck and reading lots of native material. But as it’s my deck, and I chose each card individually, it may not be as beneficial to you as it has been for me. I would highly suggest you make your own deck too and if you want to, use some of my cards along side to aid your studies. I would perhaps search for a word you want to learn and find sentences in my deck that contain that word, then move them to your deck.
