WaniKani = SRS + Gamification

Came recommended by my Japanese teacher. WaniKani offers students to tackle the Japanese kanji system by utilizing SRS (Spaced Repetition System) and fitting it in a gamification layer. The first three levels are free to try, after which you are forced to buy a subscription if you want to continue.

The best.
