    Yeah but we're not in Japan yet haha. Once I'm there I'm sure I'll agree 100%. In the mean time, I don't think it hurts to use a gimmicky app if it helps.

    But yeah, my least favorite part about studying Japanese by far is memorizing vocab... so boring and repetetive. I'm anxious to get there so I can pick it up more through experience.

    Memorization is far more useful. You might hate it but if it's in your head through an srs you'll drop words you never thought you knew which is so awesome.

    I'm not knocking it, I'll definitely continue to do it - I've actually grown to like srs quite a bit. I've learned that anki doesn't really work for me though because it doesn't have the mnemonic functions like memrise and wanikani... I guess I could manually input them, but it just takes so long lol. And I like that there's more interaction in the apps I use. For Genki vocab I either use anki or just boring repetition... it doesn't retain quite as well, but I'll still push myself to do it. Either way, I think the exposure and active usage is gonna help it along a LOT more than just sitting and staring at a screen/page haha.

    Textfugu provides some for vocabulary/kanji/etc.

    A few actually show up again in Wanikani.

    "Takes so long" is exactly why I gave up on my own Anki decks. I have better things to do than build my own study curriculum and 80$ a year is worth it to me.
