  • (2019-01-24) Gervais Baudry: Many thanks to the team who wrote this extension!!

  • (2018-12-01) Frank: I can start learning the kanji at my level from the very start, while reading about what I am interested in. Where has this been my whole life!? Thank you!!
  • (2018-11-29) Raiden Faden: Wonderful app, very helpful for learning the difficult words that I just can't get. Very nicely built and fool-proof. Good job team!
  • (2018-11-27) Vince Torkelson: Great tool, especially helpful for Mixi where most of my friends will use Kanji that I don't yet know.
  • (2018-11-26) Jamie Pelosi: Love it, I have always struggled reading kanji and this extension gives me the ability to understand more about how the characters translate to the phonetic languages. Definitely recommend for anyone learning Japanese.
  • (2018-11-25) Sen Flyer: This extension is useful for a variety of users studying Japanese, and the function to customly add which words you already know put it above other similar extensions. The creator listens to user feedback and gives frequent updates to continue improving the extension. The only downside I'd have to mention currently is there are a few cases where the furigana is wrong, but this is more due to context reasons that would be difficult for an automated product to do.
  • (2018-11-25) Kaori Benno: This is great for learners and younger Japanese students. Keep up the great work!
