FAQ:
What is Anki Aniki?
Anki Aniki is a tool for learning the kanji that appear in the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT). It covers all levels from N5 to N1.

What isn’t Anki Aniki?
Anki Aniki is not for learning vocabulary or grammar. It is strictly a tool for learning kanji.

Is Anki Aniki affiliated with AnkiDroid?
No. This app is not in any way affiliated with AnkiDroid/Anki.

How does it work?
Anki Aniki uses a Spaced Repetition System (SRS) to train your brain into memorizing kanji on a long-term level. Each day, you will learn 5 to 20 new kanji which you will be quizzed on. If you answer incorrectly for an item, it will show up sooner on a following quiz. Conversely, if you answer correctly on an item it will be longer before you see it again. The more you answer an item correctly without getting it wrong, the less frequently it will appear - until you have it completely memorized.

What are the prerequisites?
Anki Aniki assumes that you know hiragana. You will be tested on how to read kanji, and romaji is not provided. Realistically, you should not be attempting the JLPT or even learning kanji before you have mastered hiragana, anyway!

How Long Does It Take?
Learning takes time. Learning kanji (there are a lot of them) takes a long time. At minimum, it takes at least one and a half months for Anki Aniki to mark a learned item as memorized. To memorize all of the kanji in Anki Aniki it can take as little as 150 days or as much as 2 years depending on your ability and your ambition. Don’t let the numbers discourage you, though. It’s not a race. The main goal is retention.

Really good I really liked the free app so I bought this to show my support. EDIT: I previously had a suggestion here, but deleted it because it would encourage cramming.

Some problems, overall good I like this app. The quizzes make review more enjoyable than the dryness of flash cards. However, I have certain problems on my droid 4. Upon completing a quiz, the program takes as much as 3 minutes to load my results, often crashing midway. Trying to access results afterwards is the same. Sometimes the app will short circuit and claim I took a quiz I didn't, giving me a zero for the day. For an app I paid for, I am surprised to deal with difficulties like these, but overall it is good.

Completely awesome and pretty too! Thank you so much for this! I use it everyday and it really helps. The method is really encouraging and the 20-a-day doesn't seem too overwhelming if you're eager to learn. The quizzing works great and it really lets you know when you've mastered something. I love the vocabulary option and I'm happy with all the readings. The colors and layout are the best and the fonts are so comfortable. Please consider adding or creating a vocabulary addition specifically for quizzing vocabulary, because, the app is perfect, and if I could study vocabulary (compounds and other words) along with kanji in this manner instead of constantly having to click on "more info", I'd so do it! :) I also wish it were a lot easier to find my backup files, maybe have an option on where to save the backup file? And I wish when I miss a day that I still would get that day's kanji instead of just the 20 on the day of. Because, if I miss 2 days, I'd like to be able to study 60 kanji if I had to! But this is just a want. Anki Aniki really is my #1 study buddy. Hopefully I can master all kanji before heading off to Japan for my studies! ALSO: Do you plan on adding more kanji? :) Jouyou kanji would be nice!
