The sentence structures in the app generally follow the sentence structures in the book. Episode 1 begins with basic things like “I am a student”, episode 2 covers "there is/are" and position, and so on. For some examples click Yan Kanji Support (below).

The kanji quiz can be taken in English or onyomi / kunyomi. So if getting a BANZAI score (100%) seems too easy, just tap the wide button at the bottom of the screen to change the question style to onyomi or kunyomi.

This app will probably be most useful for people who already have a basic understanding of Japanese. Yan Kanji may also be of interest to anyone tired of the JLPT lists or curious about the indomitable Yan!

* These have been verified by native Japanese speakers. If there are still mistakes or typos please let me know via the contact form on my website. Comments and suggestions are welcome.

The number at the top of the screen. For example, the entry number for cat is 391. I do not have any affiliation with Kodansha but this dictionary has stroke order diagrams and Unicode values for each kanji, which is great for app developers!

What's New in Version 1.6

- added 25 kanji and 13th and final episode
- added katakana and hiragana review
- expanded TWINS list to 40 kanji

Best Kanji app I've ever used!

:
The twins section was very useful!

5/5 stars

Useful, educational, and fun to use!

:
This was very useful. It was fun to use with my friends! We were able to write our names out in japanese, and I can now write basic kanji. Recommended for beginners!

0/5 stars

It's pretty good, but...

:
It is indeed good for people like me who are totally sick of the JLPT lists. However, the interface is very sparse. I bought Kanji Pop at the same time and I prefer it completely. Kanji Pop also presents kanji out of JLPT lists, but in a way that's more fun with a prettier setting. Kanji Pop also provides you with the pronunciation of the kanji, so complaints people have had about different kanji with similar meanings are resolved in that app. I know it's bad form to talk so much about another app in a review, but they do similar things with similar methods and Kanji Pop is simply more comprehensive.
