Anki Anki is a program which makes remembering things easy. Because it is a lot more efficient than traditional study methods, you can either greatly decrease your time spent studying, or greatly increase the amount you learn.

This guide shows you how to install Anki.

Installation with Japanese Support

Install mecab-ipadicAUR from the AUR.

Install kakasi-cvsAUR from the AUR.

Install anki from the Official Repositories.

Launch anki, and inside anki use "File->Download->Shared Plugin" to download and install the "Japanese Support" plugin, restart.


After creating a new deck, you need to select "Japanese" as the deck model in "deck properties" to have Japanese support. Make sure that the Japanese Support plugin is installed, otherwise you cannot select "Japanese" as the model.

Tips and tricks

Install ttf-kanjistrokeordersAUR from the AUR if you want to display kanji stroke orders in anki. You have to select this font inside anki in your deck properties after installation.
