Usage

1. Make a list of kanji for studying

It can be built either manually (by picking out kanjis you need) or through other means:

  • Exported from other apps such as Wakan (Characters->Save to file) or other kanji dictionary
  • Generated by KanjiStats
  • Exported from existing Anki deck

2. Import cards to Anki with the help of this tool

If you're updating your deck, don't bother filtering out duplicates. Anki will ignore those.
